BAM! Khameni just called out Rafsanjani and his son, and passive aggressively accused them of corruption. OH SNAP!
Can you believe what Khameneii said?! I feel sick to my bones... and the people listening to him and shouting slogans; THINK
the news on twitter is from eyewitness in iran. this is not on press as there is no means for them to verify it.
Khamenei cries for death of 1 Basij, ignores dozens murdered, thousands beaten, hundreds arrested by Basijs. What hypocrisy.
What did you think of the Supreme Leader's speech? Have you seen/heard signs of protests since then? Let us know.
(Photo by Flickr user Jason Bass)
what's gonna happen now? :-|
At least we know there is won't be any compromise.
feel worried and desperate after Khamene'i's speech. he said it's ppl's responsibility if any violence happens now on. shoot.
Iran's supreme leader rejects vote fraud claims,describing Pres Ahmadinejad's election win as definitive
?? ???? ???? ?? ????? ? ???? ???? ???? ??? ??????? ??? ?? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ???? ?? ???? ?? ??
but Sareeh does not mean harsh. Means clearly. So pressTV also translated wrong then
Propaganda bullshit. Rhetoric calling out the 'enemies' fuck him. Old man die already.
He's defenseless, so he's playing all his attacking options all at once
"during the time of the husband of the current secretaty of state, these democrats burned 80 supporters of the davidian cult (koresh) alive"
"do you even recognize something called the rights of humans? who is still killing ppl in afghanistan? who turned iraq into what it is?"
so predictable of our supreme leader! he talked about US conspiracy (as usual)
He is pointing 2 @BarackObama . Khamanei:"How cn U B worry 4 R ppl? We r the leaders of rt of ppl all arnd the world."
After every few sentences, people have to shout "Death to England!" nobody mentions US ;)
I think Khamenei was right that West doesnt know Iranians.They dont know Mideast at general,& thats y they have issues in Iraq
Khanemei: Problem of Our enemies is that they still do not know Iranians.
Again, Zionists to blame for allegs of corruption. And the Iranians in the sts?
Khamenei: "The idiots thought Islamic Republic of Iran is like Georgia! Where are you comparing Iran with?!"
????? ??:??? ??????? ??? ??? ?? ????? ?????? ?????? ????? ??? ? ?? ???? ??????? ?? ??? ???? ????? ???
Khamenei: If they dont accept and continue their way, i'll come again and clarify everything to people frankly
Leader: If they don't[Mousavi,Karroubi] put an end to protests they are responsible
Khamenei: Those politicians who make the situation chaotic, would be responsible for the bloods.
Nothing will be changed with protests. Accpeting those illegal requests under pressure (of protests) is start of dictatorship.
Khameini: protesters 'insulted' president ahmadinejad
condemning the protests.
Leader says that he enjoys freedom of the expression :)
Leader: Ahmadinejad's opinions are closer to mine than Hashemi Rafsanjani
Khameini says Zionist-owned Western media to blame too
to all candidates, see the real enemy: the west.
Khamenei: We can talk about 1K, 100K, 1mil cheating but 11milions is not possible
????? ??: ????? ???? ?? ???? ????????? ????? ????? ?? ?? ?????? 11 ???????. ?????? ????? ???? ????? ????
khamene'i: no cheating has happened in the election.
In general: Again Khamenei is approving the election. He said this election can not be changed!!
Khamene'i supported Ahmadinejad explicitly in Friday prayer: "my approaches to politics, etc. is so close to what A.N does.
He said Ahmadinejad's stance on different issues is closer to his.
He's praising Hashemi.
Khamenei: The will of people should be recognized in ballot boxes not in the streets.
????? ??: ????? ?? ?? ???? ???? ????? ???? ????????? ???? ?? ???? ???? ???? ????
They humiliated THE president of this country, and accused him of lying& made false reports about his performance.
Both sides are guilty.
Candidates became emotional and said things that they shouldn't have.
The disadvantages of debates: sometimes they turned into illogical discussions; e.g. accusing ppl, rumors, injustice to this gov.
Continuing those debates and discussion can turn into contempt.
President Ahmadi, Larijani(Parliment speaker) and Hashemi Shahroodi(head of judicial power) are present in the Friday prayer
the debates showed that this is a real election, but it also had disadvantages.
All candidates are pro regime and part of the regime.
????? ??:?? ????? ?? ???? ?? ?? ?? ??? ???? ??? ????? ?? ???? ???? ???
He says the participation shows ppl's trust in the regime.
An election with this turn out shows God's blessing for us!
1. Thanks to the ppl! you did such a great job!
Ok.. he'll be talking about the election. 3 points, for 3 groups. First, all iranians, Second politicians, Third for the west
Khamenei's speech just started.
Leader is speaking at Friday prayers. you can watch at BBC, CNN, Euronews,

Do you know why there's no special news from Rasht? cuz protesters didn't have any leader.
Today will not happen anything here in Rasht. ppl can't go out of their home. Nonstop thunderstorm!

Internal newspapers didn't mention yesterday's rally at all

they already arrested all people who can lead people in anyway, our only hope is now lies with moosavi & karoubi

I finally managed to open karoubi's party official site: Yes, he canceled today's rally & said it's postponed to Saturday 4PM
