NOT WHAT KHOMEINI HAD IN MIND...:

Clashes in Tehran as opposition defies regime warnings (Philippe Naughton, 9/18/09, Times of London)

Reports from Tehran said that Mr Mousavi himself had been forced to flee the rally after supporters of the regime attacked his car. That incident followed an assault on another leading reformist, the former president Mohammad Khatami, who was reportedly knocked to the ground. [...]

Defying the warning - and despite fresh evidence of the level of violence being used by the Islamic regime to quash dissent - tens of thousands of people joined the rally wearing green accessories, recognisable to all as Mr Mousavi's campaign colours.

Many chanted his name and demanded the release of political prisoners detained in post-election protests. They also chanted "Don’t be afraid, we are all together" and "Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I will sacrifice myself for Iran," a witness said.


Calling out the regime for using Palestine and Lebanon as distractions is exquisite.
