The Biggest Crime

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamene'i has upped his rhetoric a tad about the dispute over June's election:
"Iran' s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has described questioning the country's disputed June 12 presidential vote as the 'biggest crime.'

"Khamenei's comments, reported in Iranian media, appear to be his strongest warning yet to opposition leaders such as Mir Hossein Musavi and Mehdi Karrubi, who have on a number of occasions said that the vote was massively rigged in favor of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad.

"The comments could also be intended to create fear within the opposition movement, which is preparing to return to the streets for a mass protest on November 4."
