More on Mousavi the "Reformer"

Mullah Lite

Here's a statement attributed to the "reformist" Iranian Presidential candidate Mousavi. Note in particular this admission: "We are not up against our sacred regime and its legal structures; this structure guards our Independence, Freedom, and Islamic Republic. We are up against the deviations and deceptions and we want to reform them; a reformation that returns us to the pure principles of the Islamic Revolution."

Reform! Change!

Next, here's an interview with Mousavi on al-Jazeera in which he is asked about the Iranian Mullahs' avowals to "wipe Israel off the map". He replies:

Right from the beginning, I objected to that phrase. We believe in the sovereignty of the people. Look at what happened in South Africa and Rhodesia. People voted and changed the system. The only way out is to refer to the true inhabitants of Palestine.

Note that he doesn't repudiate the Mullahs' intentions - he only objects to the way they phrased them. And he repeats the standard Islamic jihadist line that Muslims are the "true inhabitants of Palestine", despite the centuries of Jewish and pre-Jewish habitation of that land, and despite the fact that Islam has no direct religious claim to Jerusalem at all.

Allahu akbar!

Finally, here are the details on Mousavi's involvement in the 1983 Beirut massacre against the US embassy and Marine Corps.

Viva La Revolution!
