Today's displaced blame.  As written in the Iran Daily:

Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi also on Monday said that the presidential elections had a very good impact on the international community.

...“I sincerely and humbly urge the people to be patient. It is not fair that the valuable services rendered to the people and the realities of the election are undermined.“

Good impact? Really? Not fair to whom - his cushy job?

Singing about the corruption of Mullahs in Iran.

hope this is true and become widespread

Quote

I've just been witnessing a confrontation, in dusk and into the night, between about 15,000 supporters of Ahmadinejad - supposedly the president of Iran - who are desperate to down the supporters of Mr Mousavi, who thinks he should be the president of Iran.

There were about 10,000 Mousavi men and women on the streets, with approximately 500 Iranian special forces, trying to keep them apart.

It was interesting that the special forces - who normally take the side of Ahmadinejad's Basij militia - were there with clubs and sticks in their camouflage trousers and their purity white shirts and on this occasion the Iranian military kept them away from Mousavi's men and women.

In fact at one point, Mousavi's supporters were shouting 'thank you, thank you' to the soldiers.

One woman went up to the special forces men, who normally are very brutal with Mr Mousavi's supporters, and said 'can you protect us from the Basij?' He said 'with God's help'.

That's fantastic news, it is exactly what I have been waiting and hoping for and, gods willing it will becomes a widespread occurence.  It's uncanny how history has a knack of repeating itself (echoes of 1979 resound). :-) Let's hope for all of those injured, maimed and murdered by the Basij that their suffering was not in vain.

This is some pretty amazing footage:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBJahGXA-5o

The police on motorbikes plough into the crowd but are then mobbed and neutralised and protected by protestors from angry counterparts.

Unconfirmed: the police are now wearing the green armbands of Mousavi!
Confirmed: Iranian football team was wearing the green armbands in their recent world cup qualifier.

They are chanting: Death to the dictator and pro Mousavi slogans (we are all your soldiers, Mousavi)

Suren, where do you find these photos?! Would you please NOT post them in this thread? I think these photos just spread fear among the people of Iran and have no benefit for us!
