KHAMEINI´S FASCIST COUP DÉTAT

by Felix Quigley

A discussion on Iran at Harry´s Place

The introduction was the following

Those saying that Khamenei’s sermon Thursday was a conciliatory one and a call for calm are living in a dream world. The fact that Ayatollah Khamanei called the millions of people who came to the streets in the past few days “agents of the West” and called the election fair and historic is shocking and divisive, but expected.

His unwavering support for Ahmadinejad and the unwillingness to investigate the vote has made it impossible for any compromise to be reached.

This speech was absolutely meant to terrify the Iranian people off the streets and back into their homes. He has now stated that any protest is illegal and that any violence will be the responsibility of the opposition.

His calls for using legal systems for protesting the election results are meaningless when those laws have already been circumvented to declare Ahmadinejad the winner. Saying that Iran is a great democracy is also meaningless when any protest is illegal and lethal force is used to crack down on demonstrators.

Second from Mettaculture

For me the speech shows that Khameini iis not the all powerful wise one, but someone who deep down realises that he has been out manoeuvred by Khameini and his Iraq war veterans military power base.

Caesar is now the puppet of his captain of the praetorian guard.

Moussavi is clearly the candidate that represents the old power of the clerical Khomeini’ists of the Revolution and would be the far more compliant president for Khameini, if he were any longer in any position of real rather than symbolic power.

This now has all the ingredients for an intra regime driven civil war.

The clerics of Qom are for Mousavi and against Ahmadinejad who they must see as having betrayed the ideals of the Islamic revolution, exchanging the Kingdom of Allah for a Military dictatorship in the name of Allah.

The Islamic Theo-political regime shows us how weak and unstable a theo-politics is as the politics is winning over the theology shifting to a military politico-theological regime.

The two are irreconcilable through history but the separation of church and state only happens with a strong state not a strong church.

I am afraid that Iran may need another 30 years before demographic and technological change see off the old guard of both the revolution and the Iraq war, which has created the character of modern Iran even more strongly than the Islamic revolution.

I don’t want to see huge numbers of people killed for what is a the regime wins in any event scenario.

If Khameini had sided with the clerics and the idealistic principles of the revolution, and chosen Moussavi to do this, rather than with military power in his his own self interest, he could have faced down the massive engine of repression that Ahminedjad now seems to be in control of (with his probable active conniving prior to this election).

As it is Moussavi’s immense stature within the conservative elements of the regime is now compromised and denied legitimacy.

it is a fascist military coup d’etat indeed and apparently a well planned one.

What I feel is left out even though I do not have as much information as has say mettaculture is the issue of

1. the nature of the world crisis

2. the role of the US Government and its relationship with Islamofascism, remembering that these western governments supported Islamofascism (Izetbegovic) in the Balkans

3. they leave out totally the issue of leadership

4. they tend to downplay the revolutionary nature of the youth and mix up content and appearance.

We will write more on this on Monday.
