The Ghost That Will Haunt Khamenei to Grave
Strangely enough, we are not sad! If anything, we are invigorated ...
What speaks louder to Montazeri's power than Khamenei's Intelligence Officers installing themselves in the press offices to make sure no editorial about his life and death gets published tomorrow?
I can see them shaking ... the fear of the massive crowds who want to mourn today is making them arrest bus loads of people who are heading to Qom for the funeral.
I am not much into clerical qualifications, so I didn't know this before that, not only was he the soul defender of Human Rights in the entire Islamic Republic regime; not only was he the only one to stand up to Khomeini to prevent him from massive execution of men and women whose party was responsible for killing of Montazeri's son in a terrorist attack; not only was he the only one to stand up to Khamenei and call to question his religious qualifications for the job he was handed in; no only was he the first cleric to stand up together with people whose vote was rigged and whose sons and daughters were dragged to blood, but also he was a genius and one of a kind in leading authority in Shiite and Sunni political and theological theories ...
Today, Khamenei has dared to play god, and wish Montazeri's sin of getting into cross hair with the regime be forgiven before god!!! I was not the only one to shake my head in disgust ... The least Khamenei's thugs have achieved is to have instilled enough curiosity and care in people like me to LEARN who the "bad guys" of the Islamic Revolution were ...
Here, I leave a video of his interview with Radio Zamaaneh. I hope someone will translate this. If not, I hope I find the time to. This is why Shirin Ebadi, Iran's leading Human Right's activist and Nobel Laureate mourns Montazeri, the Father of Human Rights in Iran.
