Mir Hossein Mousavi's message condemning organized attacks on Karroubi's residence
In the name of God
We are all from God and we will return to him.
The attack of disgraced thugs on the home of Hojat-al-Islam Mehdi Karroui, the brave ally of the people in the Ghadr night is sign of the autocrats' lost. With this organized action, which it has been about 5 days since it was initiated under the eyes of the police and security forces, they showed that the occupation of loved Qods and being enemy with Israel is an excuse. The real enemy of the autocrats is Karroubi and other figures like him and other freedom-seekers; as it was shown on Bahman 22 (February 11, anniversary of Islamic Revolution) that the goal of autocrats wasn't the victory celebration for the revolution but rather a march to show claws and teeth to the freedom-seekers and the Green nation of Iran.
The catastrophe of attacking Mr. Karroubi's residence which follows the attacks on the residences of high-ranking Marajeh in the cities of Qom and Shiraz, is the best sign of fear of totalitarians from people's movement and also is the best reason for using all these Islamic and revolutionary slogans, ceremonies and rituals as a tool while the organizers of these shameful actions even announce the year and the day in which Israel oppression will end! We say that with these dark and appalling actions, you cannot block people's determination for freedom but rather you are making the path to achieve freedom shorter for the freedom-seekers.
