SORRY, MAHMOUD...:

Iran's supreme leader downplays foreign links to unrest (Ramin Mostaghim, August 28, 2009, La Times)

In a move seen as an attempt to woo disenchanted moderates and reformists back into the political establishment, Iran's supreme leader said in comments published Thursday that he was not convinced leaders of recent unrest were acting on behalf of foreign interests.

The comments by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country's top political and religious authority, distanced him from assertions made by hard-liners.


...it's not foreigners; it's we who hate you.
