«The behavior of Iran’s security agents is worse than that of the Zionist in the occupied Palestine…Can you put detainees under mental pressure in mosques, schools and in the basements of government offices?»
This is a statement is a letter from one of the Iranian opposition leaders Mehdi Karoubi to Iranian Intelligence Minister Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei.
Moderate Iranian defeated presidential candidate Mehdi Karoubi said Saturday that Iranian intelligence agents were handling detainees with harsher methods than those used by Israel, his website reported.
Iran’s opposition leaders called on senior clerics on Saturday to help secure the immediate release of detainees arrested since the country’s disputed June 12 presidential vote, the Ghalamnews website reported.
«The only way out of this situation is…to immediately release detainees…We are very worried about their physical and mental health…this imposed state security should end…It is wrong to link pro-reform detainees to foreign countries», said a joint statement issued by moderate defeated candidates and former president Mohammad Khatami. It was addressed to top clerics.
The disputed presidential election sparked a wave of mass opposition protests in Tehran and other parts of the country. According to Iranian official reports, at least 20 people were killed and more than 1,000 arrested in the protests.

We need to reflect on this comment from the Iranian opposition leader. Its opens up a pandora box of interesting political truths.
1. The Ayatollahs and Iranian President Ahmadinejad has always described the US as the greater Satan, and Israel as the lesser Satan. Now it seems that Iran has made its way in between them. Iran must be a medium Satan.
2. Since the government of Iran now is «worse than Zionists», it would be insufficient of Iran to use the nuclear bomb only on Israel. Basically, the opposition leader needs to explode the bomb on its own Government.
3. President Barack Hussein Obama has got a new allied in the Middle East. The so-called moderate Muslims in Iran. Since Mehdi Karoubi did not say that the «Iranian government is worse than the US government», Obama might have succeeded to bring Washington down from the top spot as the greater Satan.
4. There might be another option. Since Mehdi Karoubi did not say that the «Iranian government is worse than the US government». Mehdi Karoubi might already have received enough funds from Washington, and feel that Satan has already been so helpful, that only Israel now needs to be destroyed with the devils money.
