Das Regime hat ein internes Problem mehr. Jetzt ganz offiziell. Was immer Rafsandjani in den letzten Tagen in der Klerikerstadt Qom hinter den Kulissen gewispert hat; es zeigt langsam Wirkung. Eine konservative Mullahpartei aus seinem Dunstkreis die „Organisation of Combatant Clergy“ – „Vereinigung der kämpfenden Geistlichkeit“ zu deren Gründungsmitgliedern Khamenei 1978 gehörte, hat ein Statement veröffentlicht. Und Knack.
Millions of informed and decent people who believe that their votes have been tampered with, and that their intellect has been insulted, and for the defence of their rights and dignity have in a spontaneous manner come into the streets to express their pain and sense of oppression. You (the regime) insult them, and have stolen thousands of them from the streets and from their homes and taken them to unknown places. You have attacked the students and to these people who call out God is Great or Ya Hossein – you attack them like Moghuls.
You dare to blame these attacks on the people themselves.
We strongly support Mr. Mousavi – especially against the accusations that all the unrest and damage is due to his actions. This damage is the responsibility of those who turned our city into a barracks. They should be identified, arrested and charged.
Senior clergy across the country have told us that they have been put under severe pressure (by the state) to stand up against the millions of people. Until now, they have resisted. We thank them.
For the return of people’s trust and confidence we ask for the formation of a committee of neutral people, experts, and those familiar with the law who can investigate and address the complaints made by the candidates in the elections. May they issue a fair judgment… and help return our country to harmony.
