Iranian reformists have used the funeral of a senior dissident cleric, the Grand Ayatollah Hosein Ali Montazeri, to revive the protest movement which sprang up after election in June. There have been reports of fierce clashes between police and mourners in the holy city of Qom and assailants on motorbikes, who the protesters say were members of the security forces, attacked the car of the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi shattering the windows and injuring a member of his entourage.
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Members of an Islamic militia and "plainclothes men" attacked the home of a senior pro-reform cleric, Ayatollah Yusuf Sanei, in the holy city of Qom on Tuesday, a reformist website said.
The Norooz site said attackers insulted Sanei, beat up some of his associates and broke windows. There was no immediate official comment.

I don't see anything new in your post.
I'm more interested in why you personally support Iran? Why do you oppose the citizens of Iran rising up against their oppressive government and why do support Iran's retaliation against them?
Why do you think it is a good idea that Iran develops nuclear weapons? It is not conjecture anymore since they stopped even pretending to hide it.
If we are supporting those inside Iran who want more freedom and fair elections, good deal, do more of it. If it defuses the ticking time bomb, even better.
The sooner the people of Iran are freed from Sharia Law the better for them and the world. As long as they remain as they are, they remain a danger to the world. Not everything we do to influence other countries is bad. To even suggest that is propaganda and disingenuous.
