“Have they still not learned their lesson?”

15 Jun 2010

Green Movement leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi has released a statement in which he has described the recent attack against the house of the late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and the office of Grand Ayatollah Sanei in the holy city of Qom as means of distracting the public’s attention away from the country’s real problems.
In the statement, published by the Kaleme website, Mousavi said that the refusal to grant authorisation for holding demonstrations on the anniversary of the June 12th presidential elections was “more than anything an indicator of the government’s fear of a recurrence of the epic [demonstrations] on June 15th 2009.”
Mousavi claimed that the attack against the prominent clerics was part of a move to conceal the true extent of the government’s failure in handling the country’s economic, cultural, political and foreign policy concerns. “More than ever before, the people in government need to create ‘incidents’ that enable them to conceal the consequences of the misfortunes they have brought about for the country. Attacking the office of an eminent cleric and an admired student of Imam Khomeini is entering a new phase in creating such crises. Have they forgotten that it was an attack against the house of Imam Khomeini which paved the way for liquidating the roots of tyranny on 6 June 1963 and laid the foundation for [the revolution of] February 1979? Have they still not learned their lesson?”
