Iran: Welcome To The New Rule By Terror

When accusation of allegiance with the United States or Israel failed to thwart anti-government protesters, insiders clinging to power began executing them as Enemies of God.

Given that there's no worse accusation in the nominally theocratic state, the legal and moral escalation of government's accusations against those who would hold government politically accountable by demanding genuine ballot counts has apparently reached a pinnacle. The question is whether the government will abandon its nominal public participation and announce naked despotism, or will use terror fostered by religious-branded executions to suppress transparency advocates while pretending to continue public participation.
