Mousavi asks Iranians to DISTANCE themselves from all war-mongers and those who profess regime change in Iran.

In the Name of the God, The Compassionate, The Merciful

Dear compatriots,
Honorable Iranians living abroad,

Your widespread and energetic presence in this year’s 22 Khordad elections is indicative of your ties to our beloved Iran, and your admirable worries about the future of your country, and as I mentioned to you in my election message, Iran belongs to all Iranians and all layers of the populous are responsible for its future, and enjoy the same rights in it.

I feel obliged to thank you for your epic presence in determining the future of your country. Your widespread welcoming of these elections and your green and energetic presence at the ballot boxes was so large that it even forced the government and the organizers of the elections to admit to a 300% increase in the participation of Iranians in the tenth presidential elections outside of the country.

Your trust in this insignificant civil servant and your decisive vote for me in most of the voting stations outside of the country has placed a heavy burden on my shoulders. I would like to give you my assurance that I remain true to my existing pact with you and all layers of the great people of Iran, and using all legal avenues will demand your deserved rights that have been violated at the ballot boxes.

Unfortunately, as you witness in the international media, contrary to the letter of the constitution, and the stated freedoms in the Islamic Republic, all my communication with the people and you has been cut off, and people’s peaceful objections are being crushed. The national media which is being financed with public funds, with a revolting misrepresentation is changing the truth, and labels the peaceful march of close to three million people as anarchist, and the media that are being controlled by the government have become the mouthpiece of those who have stolen the people’s votes.

I’d like to thank you again for your peaceful objections which have received widespread coverage across the world, and would like to ask you that by using all legal channels, and by remaining faithful to the sacred system of the Islamic Republic, to make sure that your objections are heard by the authorities in the country.
I am fully aware that your justified demands have nothing to do with groups who do not believe in the sacred Islamic Republic of Iran’s system. It is up to you to distance yourself from them, and do not allow them to misuse the current situation.

Mir Hossein Mousavi

NAJ: I REITERATE to my American and European friends, PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON WAR-MONGERING STATEMENTS OF YOUR REPRESENTATIVES. This is our internal struggle! We shall solve it. We are experiencing a difference of opinion, and we are passionately fighting it amongst ourselves. The greatest freedom we seek is of foreign intervention.

I hope this message from Mr. Mousavi indicates that he has not been arrested.

I don't know what "legal" channels are open to continue contesting the election results. The regime is operating outside the boundaries of legality as set forth by the Iranian Constitution. The regime controls the military, or perhaps, in a very real sense, the military now controls the regime. If the military does not stand up for justice, then I see little hope that it will be served.

The Council of Experts has not yet been heard from. If they are going to weigh into this mess, I hope it will be soon. If the Council waits too long, they may find that they have lost what little authority that they once held.

I tried to tell one of them to shut up, but the website would not accept comments from outside the zip, which I didn't know. Mine never said anything. The chickenshit would have recognized me if he had piped up, he knows I hate him.
