A reformist news website has obtained an Ahmadinejad-supported “fantasy plan” to arrest Mir-Hossein Mousavi and ten other high-level Reformist leaders. Khamenei’s opposition has prevented Ahmadinejad from carrying it out. Nowruz, run by Islamic Iran Participation Front, reports that the Supreme Leader believes that arresting Mousavi would end the Islamic Republic.
Nowruz writes that Ahmadinejad submitted this plan to the Supreme National Security Council. Because of the dire consequences for “the coup d’etat beneficiaries,” however, the Council opposed executing this plan.
Ahmadinejad supported the plan completely and he insisted on its production and submission to the Supreme National Security Council. The plan emphasizes that if Mir-Hossein and the ten leaders are not arrested, the protests will never end.
The list includes Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Mehdi Karroubi, Ayatollah Mousavi-Khoiniha, Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour, Morteza Alviri, Mohammad Reza Khatami, and and one of Rafsanjani’s children. But the organizers did not include Mohammad Khatami because of his “international fame” — they thought the reaction would be “uncontrollable.”
Many thanks to Matthew below for first breaking this story from Mousavi’s Facebook.
