The Guccis have abandoned their legal challenge

I have it from a very good source that Mousavi and Karroubi have not showed up at a meeting of the Guardian Council which was to investigate their claims. Only Rezae was present. Since they were not present to present their case, the Guardian Council will most likely declared that it cannot proceed with the case. In sum – the Guccis have dropped the facade of legality. As predicted, the

The Gucci Revolutionaries’ ultimatum to the people of Iran

Sadly, Pepe Escobar is writing a lot of nonsense these days, parroting pretty much whatever the USraelian Empire wants everybody to hear. Still, he is a good reporter and that makes him keep a careful eye on what is going on. In a recent article for the Asia Times, Pepe reported something quite interesting: “Here’s the upgraded voice of the Tehran street, where the new top rallying cry is “Seyyed

Mousavi states his case

by Kaveh L. Afrasiabi for AhululBayt Islamic Mission Mir Hossein Mousavi, the reformist candidate challenging Iran’s authorities on the result of last week’s presidential elections, is a masterful tactician who wants to overturn the re-election of his rival, President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, with allegations of a massive conspiracy that he claims cheated him and millions of his supporters. These supporters, identifiable by the color green they have adopted, have taken to

When the government retained its majority amid high turnout, this was declared

Some of you have provided me with most interesting information, sometimes by direct email, sometimes in the comments section. The next couple of days will be crucial and I urge all of you, in particular those inside Iran or those

Proof: Israeli Effort to Destabilize Iran Via Twitter #IranElection

A friend (thanks N.!) just pointed out this little investigative pearl out to me. Check it out: http://www.chartingstocks.net/2009/06/proof-israeli-effort-to-destabilize-iran-via-twitter/ I can assure you that this is only the tip of a much larger, massive, iceberg. The reality is simple: Rafsanjani is trying to steal the election and organize a coup against Khamenei, and the Anglo-Israeli intelligence agencies are fully backing him. Does that make Rafsanjani a CIA agent? No, not nessesarily

Khamenei rides a storm in a tea cup

By M K Bhadrakumar for the Asia Times (thanks to L. for calling my attention to this – VS) Western capitals must make a difficult choice: how long to pin hopes on the eruption of a “color” revolution in Tehran? The burden falls almost entirely on Europe, since Washington has different priorities. The United States cannot afford to be spotted in the barricades on the frontline of any attempt to

Ha’aretz and the Mossad (!) see the light

Excerpt from today’s Ha’aretz: If Mossad chief Meir Dagan is correct, and the alleged voting irregularities in Iran are no different than the mishaps which occur in democratic countries, then the latest developments further highlight the notion that the current tensions have less to do with the election results per se.
