Iran's revolutionaries aren't fooling themselves about Mousavi

I've gotten a number of emails from people reminding me - justifiably - that 'opposition candidate' Mir Hossein Mousavi has a past that is nearly as bad as Mahmoud Ahamadinejad's. Those people have therefore questioned how I can support the Iranian revolutionaries, arguing that the revolution is unlikely to lead to anything better.

The revolutionaries do not delude themselves about Mousavi. They know that he is trying to use them, just as they are trying to use him. I suspect that they may soon part company from him. Consider this:
From the very first days of this election we announced that election in Iran dose not follow any democratic rules and is not similar to any election which happens in west.This election called selection from our side and we asked people not to participate in that.Islamic Republic of Iran faced this matter in the internal factions that has to make the internal of the government entirely from one faction and even to move all the internal opposing to the side.All the Mir-Hossein Mousavi,Khatami ,Hashemi and all opposing candidates is to take a part in the power division and share the public wealth.What has made Mousavi and his supporter team not to retreat in fact is to get what they want and not to defend people's rights.People participated in this election to get more freedom in veil, social and welfare.People participated in election to say a big"NO" to Ahmadinejad,supreme leader and a current situation in Iran But clear fraud and ignoring the basic people's freedom and selecting Ahmadinejad as a president made them to go out to the streets again.

Now it's revolutioner fighter's duty to warn angry people in the street and in the middle of a real war field with regime , to be aware of reformists imminent compromise.

To be mentioned and considered that reformists faction are just using people's power as an advantage to force hardliners to share more wealth and power with them and after reaching their goal will be the first people to suppress the riots.Getting angry and uprising is not only because reformists lose the election by leader , actually this anger comes from thirty years suppression and strangulation and now it is freedom political fighter's duty to radicalize this huge opposing movement and guide people to deny and ignore the authoritarian regime.

We emphasize that the origins of protest is not to defend a particular regime faction because all the people who voted just wanted to prove that they do not want the fascism regime. This is a spontaneous overflow and none of the regime's factions(hardliners and reformists) are leading it and it is like a really powerful and huge flame which will be dead without a leader and a organization.
Read the whole thing.

Debbie Schlussel has called the events in Iran a new Green ice cream with lots of Hezbollah yellow chips in it. Mir Hossein Mousavi is an Islamist extremist whose beef with the regime is it stole a likely win from him. He is no democrat and neither are those who voted for him. If he's an Iranian Boris Yeltsin, we've seen no sign of it.
