Mousavi's socialist ideology became very apparent during the 1980s when he initiated Islamic Socialist policies such as subsidized food coupons, oil coupons and converting private enterprises into government controlled entities. Mr. Mousavi ordered the mass-executions of 1980-81, as well as the summer 1988 executions of over 30,000 political prisoners, who were then buried in mass graves
He has also vowed to review laws that discriminate against women in Iran if he wins the upcoming election. He has stated that he would seek to disband the so called morality police force of Iran and make sure that women in Iran are treated equally, have the ability to attain financial empowerment and highest levels of decision making bodies
Now running for the elections, Mousavi has addressed activating foreign policy to boost national interest by reducing tensions with other nations. This includes negotiating with U.S. President Barack Obama if "his actions are in keeping with his words". His other notable assertions were when he called Ahmadinejad's approach to the issue of Holocaust a wrong one. Mousavi condemned the killing of Jews in the Holocaust. In response Ahmadinejad revealed Mousavi's own involvement with previous anti-Israeli movements

Hypocritical ! It is none of Americas business. The only distinction, is when election results are in question, Iranians riot, AMERICANS bitch and blog. 2000 & 2004
I wish Americans would understand that interfering in other nations internal affairs is obnoxious at best, criminal at worst. You have enough problems with your own government destroying your liberties.

I see a bunch of people calling for peaceful protesters, they are going to have to turn against the police and soon the army if they don't want to be slaughtered.
Tomorrow might just be the Tienanmen Square of Iran. I hope they understand it's past the time of peaceful means, they are going to have to meet force with force.
