Revolutionary Guards attacks Mousavi

15 Apr 2010

A week after pro-reform presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi announced that unless the rulers of Iran changed their ways to respect the law and said that “we will continue until rulers return to the constitution,” the weekly publication of the powerful political bureau of the Pasdaran Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) accused Mousavi of playing tricks. Other pro-state media wrote about the rising possibility of new rounds of public protests, and the necessity of confronting them.
The IRGC publication Sobh Sadegh responded to the recent comments made by Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Mehdi Karoubi and Mohammad Khatami, the leaders of the Green pro-reform movement in Iran, and charged them with playing tricks. “After the failure of the policy of creating chaos and the public’s rejection of hypocrites and saboteurs last year, once again the policy of tricks has been put on the agenda by the opposition figures”, the publication charges. The editorial accuses all governments that came before Ahmadinejad of having a role in creating the current conditions in the country. “In his latest remarks to his followers, Mousavi once again tries to trick his audience about the conditions in the country and point the finger of everything at Ahmadinejad’s administration, as if the country had no problems in the last 24 years during the leaderships of Mousavi, Hashemi and Khatami and, all problems suddenly emerged as Ahmadinejad came on the scene,” it writes.
The bureau writes that the tricks and misinformation of the opposition had been planned prior to the June 12, 2009 presidential elections with the goal of installing the opponent candidates. It claims that Mousavi manipulates official statistics for his own end and to trick the public, mentioning inflation statistics as an example. It calls this approach a failed one with no benefits.
At the same time, Raja News, a newspaper affiliated to the government, and Javan newspaper, affiliated to the IRGC, also published similar stories in their Tuesday issue, claiming that reformers had decided to “use the period between June 12, 2010 (anniversary of the contested presidential elections) and July 9, 2010 and create chaos.”
The fears of the administration about possible public protests during the anniversary of the contested 2009 elections are so deep that its supporters have even claimed that opponents have chosen June 15, 2010 as their start day to launch a new wave of protests with all their forces and in coordination with two key student groups.
