Stealing the Iranian Election  —  Top Pieces of Evidence that the Iranian Presidential Election Was Stolen  —  1. It is claimed that Ahmadinejad won the city of Tabriz with 57%.  His main opponent, Mir Hossein Mousavi, is an Azeri from Azerbaijan province, of which Tabriz is the capital.

Statistical Report Purporting to Show Rigged Iranian Election Is Flawed  —  Like most Americans, there are few things I would like to see more than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's hateful President, to be voted out of office.  Elections in thuggish, authoritarian states like Iran need be treated with the utmost skepticism and scrutiny.

Daniel Pipes Blog:
Rooting for Ahmadinejad  —  The heart and the head sometimes go in different directions, and they do for me today as Iranians go to the polls to vote in their country's semi-legitimate presidential elections.  —  Many problems afflict those elections - including restrictions on who may run for president …
