Much of the opposition’s power leverage is now centered on the moral and religious legitimacy of the Ayatollah Khamenei and the Islamic establishment. In the wake of the brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters who gathered in the millions in the streets of Tehran, the propaganda war is on as the country goes into a period of mourning. The opposition has created an iconic martyr figure out of Neda Agha Soltan, who died tragically on screens across the world last Saturday, and many say this is changing the tide in the country. A report emerged this evening that the Ayatollah Khomeini’s grandson has joined the reformist camp. This would be a remarkable turn of events if true. Confirmation of this report has not yet surfaced.
