"In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak is under arrest. But in Iran, the two defeated candidates in the disputed presidential elections of June 2009 who played such an important role in giving birth to the Green Movement -- Mir Hossein Mousavi a former prime minister, and Mehdi Karroubi, a cleric and a former parliament speaker -– are the ones under house arrest and denied any contact with the outside world. ... Even so, the Green Movement has achieved its goal by gaining the moral high ground, revealing to the world the true face of the Islamic regime, and draining away much of its political legitimacy. Further, it has hastened the end of Khomeinism by exposing the existent political rifts within the Iranian political power." (06/15/11)
