Quote of the day (so far):

"The situation in the country is in a very good condition. Iran is the most stable country in the world, and there's the rule of law in this country, and all the people are equal before the law."

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.


"Mr Mousavi's cancellation of the protest came as sporadic disturbances continued around the Iranian capital, and reports circulated of leaked interior ministry statistics showing him as the clear victor in last Friday's polls. The statistics, circulated on Iranian blogs and websites, claimed Mr Mousavi had won 19.1 million votes while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had won only 5.7 million. The two other candidates, reformist Mehdi Karoubi and hardliner Mohsen Rezai, won 13.4 million and 3.7 million respectively. The authenticity of the leaked figures could not be confirmed."



Quote of the day (so far) #2:

"I think this election has bought out a lot of opposition to his policies in Iran, and I'm sure [Ahmadinejad] will listen to those opinions and hopefully moderate his position."

Jimmy "dhimmi" Carter.


It really is time Mr Carter was paid a fitting tribute and fired into the Sun.

Re QOTD(SF), I quite like this:

“Iran’s supreme spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, urged the nation to unite behind the president and accept the result, calling it a ‘divine assessment’.”

More video from Iran. Some of it's really ugly:


A good comparison of Reagan and Obama:

"Our sympathies are with the people, not the government."
