'Ayatollah Khamenei, You Will Face Justice For The Coup!'

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Blogger Daftarcheye yadasht-e man (My Notebook) reacts to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's comments last week in which he described questioning Iran's June 12 presidential vote as the "greatest crime."

The statements made by Iran's supreme leader showed that he is not able to realize the simplest of realities for Iranian society. He considered the protest of the Iranian nation to the coup d'etat of the 22nd of Khordad [the June 12 presidential vote] as the greatest crime, asking the Green movement's leaders to remain silent in response to the law-breaking of the government resulting from the coup and torture and repression of the protesters.

He is not aware that he himself is the one accused for his treason in people's votes in the post-election case. The leader of the Islamic republic; who thinks that he may put forward the illegal government of [President Mahmud] Ahmadinejad as legitimate by threatening the nation and repeating his previous contradictory statements, is unable to comprehend the point that his support of the government resulting from a coup d'etat has discredited him along with the whole system in the eyes of the Iranian nation.

The members of Green movement have demonstrated in the last couple of months that they shall not give in to the threats of those who carried out the coup and shall continue their movement until the downfall of the illegitimate government of Ahmadinejad.

The leader of the Islamic republic, by taking part in the coup d'etat of the 22nd of Khordad and supporting it afterwards has committed the greatest crime and shall soon be dragged to the court of justice by the Iranian nation.

The Iranian Green movement shall show to all that the arrogant statements of the leader have only resulted in his becoming discredited against the nation and increasing the determination of the Iranians to continue their fight for the freedom of Iran.
