The regime crackdown is entering a sinister new phase, as the circle of opposition advisers is whittled away
On Monday, the offices of the committee investigating the deaths and abuse of protesters was searched

On Tuesday, Karroubi's office was shut down after documents and computer equipment were confiscated
Regime agents then arrested Morteza Alviri, head of the committee looking into election fraud
Alviri's office was searched by security forces and documents and computer equipment were taken
Later in the day, Alireza Beheshti, head of the abuse and deaths committee was arrested and his office was shut down
Emadeddine Baghi, head of the association for the defense of prisoners, was also arrested yesterday
Baghi's office was searched and documents and equipment were taken by security forces
The regime is notching up the pressure in the lead-up to mass rallies planned for Ghods Day, Friday Sep 18
More than ever, the turnout on Ghods Day has become a gauge of the Green movement's durability

Tehran IRGC head Araghi: 36 dead - 3 in Kahrizak, 10 whose place of death is known
Araghi: As for the rest, unclear where they died and who shot them

In a remarkable open letter to Khamenei, Abdolkarim Soroush predicts the end of religious despotism in Iran
Known as the Islamic Martin Luther, Soroush is a prominent philosopher. He teaches at Georgetown University
In 2005, Time Magazine put Soroush on its list of the 100 most influential people in the world

Soroush published his open letter to Khamenei today, Thursday September 10 (Farsi, article also below)
Soroush writes:
"The fading fear of the people and the vanishing legitimacy of the concept of Supreme Leadership...

...are the greatest achievements of the revolt of honor over plunder. The lion of courage and resistence has been awakened
We will celebrate the disappearance of religious despotism
A moral society and a government beyond religion are the beacons of our Green nation
You were ready for God to be shamed, so as to preserve yourself from shame
You were ready to let people turn their backs to religion, but not to you
You said 'The regime's honor has been rended.' I had never heard such good news in my life
Treason and fraud were not enough, you turned to murder and crime...
...Treason and crime were not enough, you added the rape of prisoners to everything else...
Murder and rape and fraud were still not enough, you added accusations of spying and dishonor to the lot...
You are now the prisoner of a closed regime that you yourself created long ago... which neither criticism, nor opinions, nor science, nor information flourish"

AN trying to declare Sept 19th holiday so people leave Tehran for long weekend

Khamenei has announced state of emergency, using NatSec powers to crush oponents

Khamenei wants Green destroyed. NatSec warning of Mousavi, Khatami, Karoubi arrest before Qods day
First arrest is Karoubi, then Khatami & a while after Mousavi, which will conincide with Martial Law declaration

Iranian Republicans, Nationalists, Royalists (hand full), Leftist groups talking about armed revolution now
Coup started purge of Non-Conformants in ministries. Many either fired or arrested. Incl. people who were leaking to us

Khamenei's office distributing CDs to University Profs with confessions & documentary about Velvet Revolution,
citing Rafsanjani, Khatami, Karoubi & Mousavi as conspirators (Farsi)

Resistance alliance in formation. Planning raids & attacks on sensitive facilities & Goverment
If arrests & threats don't work, they'll cancel Qods day
Khamenei has been given "evidence" by IRGC Intel on "plot" against him by Rafsanjani, Khatami, Karoubi & Mousavi.
Khamenei got intel by new Intel Minister "widespread protest is over. Now only some left overs & best time to attack."

New commander of Rasulollah (NorthTehran) confirms Basij mobilization & determination to crush any attempt by "protesters & subversives"
Khamenei sent serious warning to all Marja not to get involeved in "Matters of State" or face consequences
Khamenei to Safi-Golpaygani "In Velayat-e Faqih, only Supreme Leader rules, President & Ministers are just his tools of Governance & employees"

Ayat. Nouri-Hamedani retracts his congrats to AN

Zarghami head of IRIB affrimed by Leader, will remain in his position. Will be out in a few days. Nothing will change there
Alireza Beheshti got in to verbal fight with a Security Agent of Sepah, who started beating him severely
His head was broken, his glasses smashed in his face & beaten all over. He fainted, so agents brought him to hospital for treatment
After treatment, he continued his protest which led to him being beaten up again & dragged out of Sepah Hospital

Coup planning to cut off/distort communication/internet starting 48 hrs before Qods day to prevent Green coordination
University dorms being closed & evacuated ahead of Qods day

URGENT: Sharivar 24 disturbances on communication networks will be created!

Khamenei's camp worried: he seems to be losing touch with reality, is no longer in control of thoughts & deeds
Khamenei complains of severe headache attacks, receives heavy pain killers, shows signs of possible Schizo/Paranoia/Bipolarity

Report of repelled Basij attack on protests,fighting back & prevented arrests yesterday in Median Shahid
This has apparently been happening since yesterday in almost all north Tehran neighborhoods

Khamenei's Friday Prayer notes: if they're real, FP will be a non-event and rehash of previous declarations

Kahrizak commander (freed 3 hrs after 1st arrest by order of AN) arrested again yesterday by S. Larijani's order

AN brought charges against Karoubi at Judiciary asking for an arrest warrant
Charge against Karoubi is "provocation of masses to participate on Qods Day"

Pres's legal dept. argues Karoubi provokes unrest & anti Goverment demonstrations, distorts truth to weaken regime
Arrest warrant against Karoubi is applied under "Social Order & Security" laws
Karrubi's arrest warrant issued. Arrest is imminent

(not confirmed)

URGENT: Mousavi's arrest warrant issued. Arrest may take place tomorrow. Communication black out will follow

Sazegara, Nourzadeh, Makhmalbaf confirmed having recieved "precise" info on arrest plan for Reform heads (which we leaked earlier)

Picture Iranian daily: Offices of A...(Ayatollah) Karoubi sealed. AYATOLLAH? Promoted by Marja
It is an unwritten law that no Ayatollah can be jailed. (Khomeini convinced grand ayats to promote him before Savak could get him)

Confirmed: Reformist "Confession" CDs arrived at Basij (Mosque) outlets (Farsi)

Flyer from Jebhe Sabze Azadi, the Green Freedom Movementon, Arrest on Mousavi & Karoubi & total revolt declaration (Farsi)

Flyer title: Green Movement Warning to Coup. Then a Sure of Quran, which says "the infidel oppressors will be destroyed..."

...and they (evil ones) will be given 4 months to walk earth before they are destroyed"

Prepare to pour in to streets upon imminent arrest of any of our leadres. Everyday from Enghelab (revolution) to Azadi (freedom) squares
Total revolt is announced till reign of infidels is crushed

Dari-Najafabadi compared Mousavi with Imam Ali (having been wronged) today on IRIB

Dari-Najafabadi is the Chief Judge of the Supreme Court of Justice of Iran
Ali was chosen to lead Umma but was betrayed, caved in to keep peace but was finally 4th leader

Multiple sources indicate Sayyedi Green Shals, clothes & head scarves sold out everywhere in Major iranian cities
