Shiraz Explosion, Total Disregard for Life

From the reports I have been reading about the explosion in the Shiraz mosque which led to so many deaths and injuries, it seems the most likely cause was the ordnance display at the mosque which was not made safe for public. It strikes me that when we talk about the total disregard for life by the Islamic Republic rulers, we shouldn't just think about their disregard for life of their enemies, rivals and dissidents etc. Even the lives of their own supporters for them is worth nothing, as it has been demonstrated so many times in the past.

The reaction of the "enlightened reformists" living in London was also interesting. Mrs. Jamileh Kadivar, the wife of Atollah Mohajerani, the former Minister of Guidance during Khatami's presidency, who now lives in the exclusive Chelsea district of London, speculated that the Baha'is were the perpetuaters of the Shiraz explosion!!

Meanwhile Jamileh Kadivar's husband, Ataollah Mohajerani, is actually advertising and selling his book in defence of Ayatollah Khomeini's death sentence against Salman Rushdie on his web site. Both have the full protection of Her Majesty's Government.

On the other hand, Safa Einollahi, the plaintiff against Khatami, a victim of torture during Khatami's presidency, is living in hiding after the UK Home Office ruled it is safe for him to return to Iran!
