Mousavi Defiantly Calls for Continued Protests

Ad Feedback

The tension in Iran is far from over.

The worst power struggle in the Islamic Republic in the last 30 years has left at least 17 dead in a violent showdown between government forces and angry protesters over disputed presidential election results.

Opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has vowed to stand by the protestors and continued to press for the election results to be annulled.

The latest twist to the bloody saga is that officials from Iran's influential Guardian Council are now admitting to voting inconsistencies in fifty cities. That affects the overall vote tally by as much as three million votes.

But the council remains adamant that no laws were broken.

The daughter of former Iranian president Hashemi Rafsanjani was arrested then later released. She has been an open supporter of the opposition.

On Fox News Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to condemn President Obama's reluctance to condemn Iranian leadership.

"Somebody who believes deeply in democracy, you see the Iranian lack of democracy at work and I think this best explains to the entire world, what this regime is truly about," he said. "I don't know if anyone really knows and I don't know if anyone who's how this will end. There is a deep desire within the people of Iran. Perhaps the word is a simple one. Freedom."

With the backing of the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, President Amedinajad continues to stand firm that he is victorious. While the latest pictures from Tehran show a very different story.
