Ayatollah calls for summary executions of Iranian protesters

I wish I spoke Persian or that someone had fully translated this video, because it's astounding (read some of the comments there as well to see who this Ayatollah is). I'm going to embed this video below, and if anyone happens to speak Persian who can enlighten us, it would be much appreciated.

Let's go to the videotape.

I have a partial translation from Arutz Sheva:
In a live interview broadcast on the Islamic Republic's national television station sometime within the last two weeks, Ayatollah Mehyaddin Haeri Shirazi described a Communist protest movement from the early years of the Islamic Republic, noting how it was effectively crushed by the authorities. The government targeted opposition activists, he said, "arrested them in the afternoon and the same night announced the names of 30 people killed or executed by the government forces."

In reaction to the arrests and killings, Shirazi continued, "nothing happened. Why? Because they killed them."

Expanding on what he sees as the lesson from those events, the ayatollah said,"The more of them [the opposition] are killed, the more beneficial [to the people]. If the armed forces kill some of them, it is to our benefit."

On the other hand, Shirazi continued, "When they are arrested, it is bad [for public opinion], when they are captured [it is bad for public opinion]. Do not make victims out of them."

Killing the opposition protesters, the ayatollah insists, "is sanctioned by obedience to Allah and the prophet and is handed down to the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Khamenei]. When it is sanctioned by such a power, there is no need to go through the government powers."

Shirazi warned the opposition forces, "Do not look upon the Supreme Leader [simply] as a person with a soft turban on his head, and that you can beat him. His support comes from the Hidden Imam Mahdi, he [Khamenei] is made of iron. It will come back down to break your own heads."
And the world sits silent. Imagine how much more quiet it would be if the victims were Jews....

These people would kill the Jews in a heartbeat. For them, the mass murder of their own people in a walk in the park. That is of the reasons why Israel cannot live with a nuclear Iran. The mullahs show no forbearance towards those seeking justice and freedom in their country. One can well imagine what they would do to Israel given the chance.
