8:38 PM ET -- In a stunning development, Iran's most senior cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri denounced the election results, reports McClatchy Newspapers:/

"No one in their right mind can believe" the official results from Friday's contest, Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri said of the landslide victory claimed by Ahmadinejad. Montazeri accused the regime of handling Mousavi's charges of fraud and the massive protests of his backers "in the worst way possible."


"A government not respecting people's vote has no religious or political legitimacy," he declared in comments on his official Web site. "I ask the police and army personals (personnel) not to 'sell their religion,' and beware that receiving orders will not excuse them before God."


O_O!

This tweet is the culmination of all of the things I really DO NOT WANT TO SEE RIGHT NOW IN BETWEEN IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
when 'im a celebrity' said they were making slasher flick, i didn't think they were making a horror film. too long reading fanfics...
I am so done with the people I am following. Ugh.

I stopped checking my facebook feed for this very reason, bb. Just shake it off and enjoy all of the new ONTD_P friends you've made today!

I am feeling hopeful and extremely inspired, but still worried. I was informing my dad (who surprisingly wasn't an asshole about it) and when I came back after 5 minutes there were 2,598 new tweets for #iranelection!

Forgive my twitter ignorance (I still hate it for things that aren't this) but how will I know if/when zapyzap replies to my sweet zing?

"RT Iran: unconfirmed - several Generals have been arested"

-- could be in connection to the military refusing to act? I can't find anything to confirm.
