Iranian cleric says "rioters" should be executed


www.reuters.com

TEHRAN (Reuters) - A hardline Iranian cleric on Friday called for the execution of "rioters," in a sign of the authorities' determination to stamp out opposition to the June 12 presidential election result.

(EDITORS' NOTE: Reuters and other foreign media are subject to Iranian restrictions on their ability to report, film or take pictures in Tehran.)

Iran's top legislative body, the Guardian Council, said it had found no major violations in the election, which it called the "healthiest" vote

No protestors then eh???

Only the very few of idiots on here are saying that there aren't protests....

They're calling for executions of protestors..... this fits right in line with what has been reported on CNN and the youtube videos, as they wouldn't be sat drinking tea with those the regime want to execute now would they?

Anyway our standards do not accept executing protestors whatever the circumstances.

So this has become a battle of the people vs the regime.

Good. Not in the sense of mudering protesters, but by spouting this kind of rhetoric the regime weakens themselves further. Keep pushing the people harder and harder and they will eventually throw the supreme council out on their butts, if they are lucky. Ripped to pieces in the streets if they are unlucky. Good either way.

Quite understandable that his Cleric would want to totally stamp out anyone involved with a movement that heralded the end of his reign. People will rationalize the most insidious acts in the name of maintaining power and status quo.

People need to open their eyes and realize that what is going on down there is the fault of the Iranian Govt....NOT the CIA, or any other organazation. Excuse my language but this crap happens, and the Iranian people as a whole are the ones who have to deal with it, not us here in the US, nor in Britain, or anywhere else on the globe, its happening to THEM.
The rest of us know ABSOLUTELY nothing that is going on over there, because frankly, they dont want us to know how bad their problems really are. That country is getting the shaft right now because of a corrupt govt, that is it. If you dont believe that, and you still think the shadow govt is behind it, than fine;but dont expect people to start taking you seriously if all you can do is say "CIA".

To be a little more ON topic-
I feel bad for those people right now for the very reason that they are getting to the point of not even being able to speak out or yell when they are getting the big shaft, they have to just sit there and take it all.
The way the Iranian Govt see it(If You Dont Like It, DIE). Sad.

I guess the propagators of this are betting that this will get the American People really pissed off and be all about getting new leadership in Iran. In any case I hope that the ones behind these so called executions and it's propogators be heald accountable. But chances are, they won't.

I just hope the good citizens of Iran don't lose momentum and stop now. All eyes are on Iran and the citizens know it. Now is the time to keep pushing the regime. The mullah will make a fatal mistake and the people will prevail. If the mullah go half cocked and start executing protesters they are doomed in the eyes of the international community. The people have had enough and should not spend one second looking back over their shoulders.

As was stated earlier, this is indeed the fight of the Iranian people. All we can do now is support them. Their destiny is now in their own hands.

As I watch news story after story and read article after article on thing becomes clearer all the time, we in the West really don't get the way these people live. We are viewing this through the eyes of our way of life and can see great courage in these people, but when we consider the true nature of Islamic culture their bravery comes to unbelievable heights. Imagine a religious leader in the US or UK stating or even implying that protesters should be executed, an outcry like noting we have seen would come against them. Yet in Iran, it is common course for people to be charged with these things and executed.

Back in 80 I dated one of the Iranian students that were here on those visas and stayed after it expired out of fear. His family had been part of the regime of the Shah and when the takeover happened his whole family was nearly wiped out. Change of regime over there is not simple and these people in power are well aware of what they are facing if a coup were to really happen there. I only hope the momentum continues and the people come out in full force, that is the only way this will end well for the people of Iran. IMHO

There is nothing the West can do, just as we do nothing when China executes for tax evasion.

All we can do is hope and pray the Iranian people will have justice. There are worldwide vigils planned in support of the Iranian people.

Maybe all on ATS should have a day where we burn a candle for peace and justice in Iran.

I'm shocked, they are usually so tolerant and compassionate towards their fellow human beings.

Calling for the mass murders of your opponents is always a sure fire way to get the people on your side. Especially when you are a so called holy man. Those Mullas sure know how to stay classy don't they?

First, the actual quote, below, states "leading rioters". Did you leave out the "leading" part to enhance this statement?


while a hardline Iranian cleric called for the execution of leading "rioters."


Second, the headline says "RIOTERS", not protesters! There is a significant difference between the two.



*****Iranian cleric says "rioters" should be executed*****

They're calling for executions of protestors..... this fits right in line with what has been reported on CNN and the youtube videos, as they wouldn't be sat drinking tea with those the regime want to execute now would they?


Third, this is the law in Iran! Whether we agree with it, or not, is irrelevant. This fact is also ignored by Obama, which I find very unsettling!


www.reuters.com...
"They should be punished ruthlessly and savagely," he said. Under Iran's Islamic law, punishment for people convicted as "mohareb" is execution.


Lastly, even if this was said and is true, nobody has been executed. This would be a serious matter if it were true. I happen to hold the opinion that this is 100% US propaganda. But hypothetically, if you are the leader of a country that's on the verge of civil anarchy, you should probably try everything you can think of to regain control. That includes statements reminding those citizens of any and all punishments they may face. Especially the nasty ones. Saying it and doing it are completely different acts.

I'd also like to say that I cannot believe everyone responding to this thread overlooked the word "rioters"? Each and every one of you were so eager to bash the governors of Iran, you completely disregarded the entire situation! Spewing nonsense one after the other over your own neglection to diligence! Shame on all of you!

Peace.

I can’t believe that they are saying this publicly..Pretty dumb if you ask me maybe they think that killing un armed people "there own people" at that will intimidate their enemies.. The Iranian regimes days are numbered that is for sure ...and they know it

I had a girl in a couple of high school classes(1980), whos family fled the revolution fearing for thier lives. Her father was an architect or engineer or something cant remember, hardly the kind of person that would be hunted around the globe but they were.
An attempt to kill them was made right here in the US by iranian "students". One day while driving home from work, with his daughter their car was run off the road and riddled with bullets.
I read about the incident in the paper, but details were few and it was reported as a shoot out between the mexican mafia and nuestra famillia, they were having quite the gang war at the time.

A few days later she came to class to say goodbye, with an FBI escort, because they were moving again, this wasnt the first attempt on thier lives.
She was a really nice girl too,it was quite a shock to a group high school sophomores that a foreign power would go to such lengths to get someone.I suspect the revolutions beef with them was that they were christians.
back to the subject at hand, there are several ATS's that are conspicuously absent from this discussion.
Lets see them blame this on the cia.

Revolutionary Iran has a long history of reppressing its people, just a couple of months ago two young men were executed for BEING GAY, thats a civilized society for you.
Or how about the british journalist that was arrested and beaten to death by security forces. Or the untold numbers of non shia muslims that have been dissapeared.
or the non shia mosques that have been bulldozed

or their treatment of non muslim citizens, zororastrians and members of the bahai faith and others.

or the public beateing of women for not covering thier heads


its funny how some people conviently forget such things

This is Iran, the same country that had mass hangings of "enemies of the state" in the 1980s and 1990s. To merely call for the deaths of protesters is tame for them ....

How do you know? The regime over there isnt' allowing freedom of the press. Considering how they behave on a 'good' day ... it would NOT be a surprise to find that they are executing those they call rioters. Reports came out yesterday of police throwing protesters off a bridge. That's a rather inventive form of execution ...


I'd also like to say that I cannot believe everyone responding to this thread overlooked the word "rioters"?

The title of this thread clearly says 'rioters' was the word used.
The Iranian gov't doesn't distinquish between rioters and protesters.
Both are equally 'serious law breakers' in their bloodthirsty eyes.


you completely disregarded the entire situation!

Actually, that could truthfully be said about your post.


The Clerics are not going to have their power much longer.
Good days for Iran are coming soon.
