Mir Hossein Mousavi – Our Victory Will Not Be Achieved Through the Defeat of Another

On the last Friday of Ramadan this year, I was amongst a group of individuals, some of whom welcomed me with clenched fists, desiring nothing more than to to see me dead. While traversing the commotion filled road alongside each other, I closely examined the expression on their faces and realized how dear those faces are to me. It became apparent to me that our victory will not be achieved through the defeat of another, for we must all prosper together, even though the journey to awareness and the full recognition of the promise of such prosperity may take longer for some than others.
