“A war against God”

Well, that didn't take long:

The sense of threat against the opposition was growing. Reuters
reported that Mohammadreza Habibi, the senior prosecutor in the central
province of Isfahan, had warned demonstrators that they could be executed under Islamic law.

“We warn the few elements controlled by foreigners who try to disrupt
domestic security by inciting individuals to destroy and to commit
arson that the Islamic penal code for such individuals waging war
against God is execution,” Mr. Habibi said, according to the Fars news
agency. It was not clear if his warning applied only to Isfahan or the
country as a whole, Reuters said.

Do these look few to you?

    Then again, this assumes that someone is actually pulling the strings, rather than this whole uprising being a spontaneous reaction by the people of Iran.
