Applicants opponent is critical to the new supreme leader of Iran

The defeated presidential candidate and leader of the protests in Iran, Mir Hossein Moussavi, made this Saturday on its website an unprecedented criticism against the country's supreme guide, Ali Khamenei, who endorsed the re-election on the eve of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad in the elections of 12 June. Statements of Moussavi coincided with the eighth day of protests by the election results, where the police repressed thousands of demonstrators who challenged the ban to meet with nightstick, jets of water and tear gas. Also in Tehran, the tomb of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, father of the Islamic revolution of 1979 that overthrew the regime of the last shah, Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, a man detonated his explosives-bomb and injured at least one pilgrim, according to police. The press refers to three wounded. The mausoleum is a large complex of several buildings. The agency Mehr reported that the attack happened at the entrance of the mausoleum, where devotees leave their shoes before entering the temple. The explosion damaged part of the site. In a message published on the site of his campaign, Moussavi, a moderate conservative, accused the religious leader, not mentioning the name of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to threaten the republican character of the Islamic Republic and has as objective to impose a new political system . "All counts (irregularities), to which are added the other mentioned in my previous letters, are sufficient to annul the election," says Moussavi in a message sent to the Guardian Council. No Iranian politician dared not make a criticism of such importance to Ayatollah Khamenei since he assumed the role of supreme guide in 1989. The supreme guide, the main authority of the State, said the prayer on Friday that the advantage on the opponents of Ahmadinejad in the election of 12 June can not be explained by a fraud. But the Guardian Council informed in this Saturday to be ready to conduct a recount of the votes of 10%, chosen in random order, before announcing the decision. President Ahmadinejad has thanked the country's supreme guide, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the "good decision", according to Iranian agents, after the latter endorsed his reelection. "Guide, as a small child and server chosen by the great Iranian nation is to thank you cordially for the good decision at the Friday prayer," said the President in a message to the Ayatollah. The events, unprecedented since the Islamic revolution of 1979 that overthrew the regime of Shah Reza Pahlevi, continued this Saturday, despite warnings from authorities that they would be suppressed. On the afternoon of Saturday, police antidistúrbios Iran tried to prevent the demonstrators from the opposition came to Enqelab square of Tehran, beating some of them, a witness reported the AFP.

Another witness said that between 1,000 and 2,000 demonstrators were in front of the University of Tehran, near the Enqelab square. According to her, the police used water jets and tear gas bombs to disperse the present. A third witness said that thousands of demonstrators gathered in Azadi square, four square quuilômetros of Enqelab. Demonstrators gathered in silence, but occasionally were heard gritps as "death to the dictator" in reference to Ahmadinejad. At least one person was injured in firing in the shoulder during the demonstrations in Tehran. The foreign press is not allowed to cover events that are not authorized by the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance validity of the victory of Ahmadinejad in the election of 12 June is questioned by the other candidates, including his main rival Mir Hossein Moussavi. Some opposition leaders have to say that the demonstrations in Tehran had been suspended as a result of the ban, but the moderate conservative Moussavi did not rule on this. The chief of police Ahmadi Moghadam warned in a letter sent to Moussavi that any demonstration would be repressed. A week ago, Tehran and other cities of Iran live in the largest protests in the Islamic Republic 30 years, up by the followers of the main rival of Ahmadinejad, Mehdi Moussavi and Karube, seeking the annulment of the election by fraud.

"We ask the government of Iran to stop all violent and unjust actions against its people," Obama said through a press release, which elevates the tone of the reaction from Washington before the confrontations reported in Tehran.
