Executing Iranian Protesters

I remind you, Barack Obama wants to negotiate with Iranian president Ahmadinejad, who is responsible for not only rigging an election, with the help of the so-called Supreme Leader and the Guardian Council, but who controls the regime that is now hanging Iranian citizens for protesting the fraudulent election.

As the Iranian authorities warned the opposition on Tuesday that they would tolerate no further protests over the disputed June 12 presidential elections, a report emerged of the hangings of six supporters of defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.

Atlas Shrugs brings to our attention this news article which shows that Ahmadinejad's Basij militia is calling for Mir Hossein Mousavi's, (challenger in rigged election) execution as well.

Iran's opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi today became the target of the notorious Basij militia as it called for him to be prosecuted for his role in the greatest political unrest in Iran since the Islamic revolution.

In a letter to the country's chief prosecutor, the Basij accuse Mousavi of involvement in nine offences against the state, including "disturbing the nation's security". That charge carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence.

The letter came as the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, cancelled a planned trip to Libya without explanation. The last-minute cancellation is being seen as a sign of the continuing volatility in Iran as the authorities struggle with the fallout from last month's disputed election, in which Ahmadinejad was declared the winner.

One of the other candidates, Mehdi Karroubi, a reformist cleric, vowed to continue his fight to annul the election despite the endorsement of the poll by the powerful guardian council after a partial recount of the vote.

"I don't consider this government legitimate," Karroubi said on his website.

It was later reported that the daily Etemad-e-Melli, a newspaper allied to him, had been closed down.

As I remind you on every post about the fight for freedom being held on the streets of Iran, keep your eye on Twitter feed #Iranelection, where Iranians, mostly using proxies are risking their lives to post news, pictures and videos, so the world can see their struggle for freedom.
