The Iranian authorities today refused permission for a rally in support of Egyptian people’s uprising and victory over Mubarak. The rally was being organized by the opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karrubi, and was to be held on Monday in Tehran.
"These people are fully aware of the illegality of their demand and they know they will not receive a permit for staging a rally," said Mehdi Alikhani-Sadr, deputy director of the Interior Ministry's political bureau [Fars News Agency, 13 February].
How can a minority (Green Movement) overthrow the majority (IRI) without using force? Only in Hollywood is this possible.
If this report is true, then the same forces behind the Stuxnet attack and the assasination of innocent Iranian scientists are turning the Green Movement into traitors. What a shame.
the revolution in Tunis, Egypt is over
no need for demos
I think it would be a good idea to allow the demonstration. Simultaneously though, permission should also be given to the supporters of Ahmedinejad to stage a counter-demonstration. This should help to clear up any confusion as to who has real popular support. I do believe that this occurred a year or two ago and managed to silence the hypocritical howls of outrage from the west
I agree with Ironpen..The government should just allow them to demonstrate and prove their stupidity and ignorance to the whole of Iran and the world and also warn them that any damage to public property or person will be met with the harshest response.
Was it not these same "greens" who where cheered on by Mubarak and his gang back then in 2009?Now that he's been kicked out, these same "greens" are out protesting in support of it?They have no shame!
The west have and still been doing everything in their power to prevent "democracy",aka Capitalism,in Egypt for 30+ years yet they want to promote it in Iran?Do they think the average Iranian on the street is that dippy as most American citizens are?
No, Ironpen's idea obviates the entire need for elections. What's the point of an election if ultimately the people will settle it with violent street clashes?
Karoubi and Mousavi are attention seekers. antars.
I think it is rather short sighted and naïve for both the government and the Green movement to claim kinship with the Egyptian revolution - only time will tell. If Egypt becomes a multiparty democracy and the moselm brotherhood adopts a moderate line, like the AK Party in Turkey, it would be bad news for the government and good news for the Greens. The right to peaceful demonstration is enshrined into the Iranian constitution and should be respected. Let’s not forget that Musavi won 34% of the votes in 2009 election. This equates to roughly 9-10 millions Iranians who voted for him.
in latest 2 years , the ahmadi nejad is gone and the green movement is gone too.
Karoubi wants to divert attention from the money he stole all these years
Only the delusion foreign exiles and their pathetic paymasters in Langley and Whitehall have this infantile fantasy of creating disturbances in Iran. IT WILL SIMPLY NOT GOING TO HAPPEN as the Islamic Republic has over 90% support and perhaps more in rural areas. The deadbeat US taxpayer is only feeding a Zionist pipedream. Iran Payandebad.
Hundreds try to storm and hurt Moussavi at his home, he is now being pretected like Karoubui after he was kicked by his neighbor.(thats true)
Karoubi calims to have bruises and he swears they are not sexually motivated.
Both these clowns Mouse-avi and Karroubi are useless spent individuals who have no relevance to the Iranian body politik or ground realities. Only the Zionist/US media tries to exploit them for sheer propaganda purposes and the their nefarious anti-Iran aims. Not a mouse will come out to play in Tehran or any other part of Iran. These "western" not so "intelligence" agancies simply do not understand how much Iran and the region have changed and how much anti-American hatred there is in the Muslim world and even globally now. Why would Iranians who are relatively prosperous, stable and FREE play into the hands of Iran's worthless deadbeat enemies and the Zionist/Bilderberg global looters?
BBC is trying to make a 5 to 12 reportage on Iran because of supposed mass protests in Iran.
I have never heards such bullshit in my life there were a few (i mean a few) planed to be filmed events to make the impressin later by being spooled back and forth on the BBC and Fox.
only about 500 hundered here and there, no more
Today I am ashamed for my country
IT was a good day today.... I think now the Green movement realized how little the support have become.
Regardless of a totally exagerrated British report on the events in Tehran, other Western media like the German d aafrench were more careful and truthful.
Next time they should be careful, in trying to screw their political enemies with other peoples (the youth) pimmel.
I thought Mousavi was a decent person back in 2009, but now I view him as a desperate and spiteful (lajbaz) person.
permission was granted by the MI6
