Mousavi himself, in this Al Jazeera interview, claimed that nuclear technology is an Iranian "achievement" and as such no one has a right to tell her to abandon it. Interestingly, in that same interview, his desire to destroy Israel is quite evident, though through means other than a nuclear attack. When asked about "wiping Israel off the map." He said "Right from the beginning I objected to that phrase" [i.e., he does NOT object to THE CONCEPT!], and continues... "the only way out is to refer to the 'true inhabitants of Palestine'," [by which he means the "Palestinian" Arabs, which means he subscribes to the lie that Jews have no place in our G-d given Land].

I am also not comforted by the comments Dr. Pipes quotes from Mousavi's website. That, and the fact that other supporters call themselves "Mujahedeen," is just too Islamist for my taste.

Furthermore, according to American Thinker, "Mousavi is a longtime proponent of Islamist triumphalism and terrorism, a hardliner on Iran's illegal nuclear weapons program and an anti-Semite who has called for Israel to be destroyed."

And, if the information at Hot Air Blog is true, Mousavi has been directly involved in unprovoked and murderous attacks on US Servicemen.

Finally, I find little comfort in the calls for reform coming from anyone calling themselves "Mujahedeen." Of course their behavior is a bit odd for "Islamist" terrorists, and so I'll have to get back to you on this particular item after I have a pow wow with my inner mugwump.

Yet, given the totality of all the above, what I want to know is that once she is domestically liberated from the stiffling clutches of her short sighted and self-destructive mullahs, how will a newly envigorated anti-Semitic anti-Western Iran be "good" for the Middle East, let alone the Worldt?
