Mir Hossein Mousavi, The Green Warrior!

On December 7, while Iranians once more took to the street to protests against the Ahmadinejad government, the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, chief opponent of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, confronted the 30 to 40 bikers in plain clothes who were chanting slogans against him in front of his office.

Kalameh website reports that the plain clothes forces were trying to impede his exit form the building but he approached them and urged them to "complete the mission" they had been sent to accomplish. According to Kalameh, Mir Hossein Mousavi addressed them saying: "You have a mission, then do it. Kill me, hit me, threaten me!"

Reportedly the bikers were affected by Mousavi's declarations and were silenced. A Kalameh reporter maintains that he was told they were charged with stopping the opposition leader from coming and going.

Kalameh reports that Mousavi's bodyguards then took him back into the building.

On November 4, the last time protesters took to the streets again, Mir Hossein Mousavi was also impeded from exiting his office building by the plain clothes forces.

Yesterday, Zahra Rahnavard, Mir Hossein Mousavi's wife was also assaulted in Tehran University. Basij women confronted her on the university campus and later attacked her on he streets with pepper spray.

MirHosein Mousavi who has denied the legitimacy of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's current government because of alleged fraud in the June presidential elections, on Sunday warned Islamic Republic officials that people's protests would not be silenced by any means
