Talking about “hypocrites” in Iran …

Iran condemns violence everywhere but in Iran… “

Iran on Friday “condemned the violent confrontation” in Bahrain.

Foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast “condemned the bloody incidents and violent confrontation with people and asked the Bahraini government to show self-restraint and refrain from violence,” the state broadcaster’s website reported.

Mehmanparast “voiced concern about resorting to violence towards the people of Bahrain and hoped… that the right of people to express their opinion in a peaceful way is respected,” the report quoted him as saying.

And now look at this report:

Iran devotees demand ‘death’ of opposition chiefs

18 February 2011    TEHRAN (AFP) – Thousands of worshippers and regime-backers have gathered for Friday prayers demanding the execution of opposition chiefs whom officials say have rebelled against Iran’s Islamic establishment.

“Death to Mousavi! Death to Karroubi! Mousavi, Karroubi should be hanged!” chanted the devotees at the weekly prayers.

Leading the prayers, hardline cleric and head of powerful Guardians Council, Ahmad Janati, demanded total isolation of Mousavi and Karroubi.

Janati said the judiciary must “cut access (of Mousavi and Karroubi) with the people completely, the doors of their homes must be shut… so that they can’t receive and give messages, their phones… Internet must be cut and they be imprisoned in their homes.”

The two leaders are already under de facto house arrest and on Wednesday, the chief of judiciary Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani warned them sternly.

“The treason committed by the movement of sedition leaders is not hidden from anyone,” Larijani was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA Thursday.

“This group which has rebelled against the religious government should know that while maintaining Islamic compassion we will not tolerate the establishment being compromised.”

Later on Friday the regime-backed rally would “scream out their hatred, wrath and disgust against the savage crimes and evil movement of sedition leaders, their Monafeghin (hypocrites) and monarchist allies,” said the Islamic Propagation Coordination Council, the body which called Friday’s marches.

The Tehran Friday Prayer Committee said the rally “will condemn the treacherous and disgraceful actions of opposition heads and their agents,” the state television website reported.

The latest outburst against the two leaders and their supporters erupted after an anti-government protest on Monday which was called under the pretext of showing solidarity to Arab uprisings.

The Monday rally, banned by authorities, turned into deadly clashes between protesters and riot police in which two people were killed and several wounded, including nine members of security forces, reports said.

Dozens of people were killed, scores wounded and thousands arrested when authorities cracked down on anti-Ahmadinejad protesters in 2009.
