“An earth shaking fever for change for the better is sweeping through Iran’s Islamic Republic.
Mousavi recently announced his bid for presidency, explaining he could “no longer stand to see… [Iran] moving toward dictatorship” under the hardline of Ahmadinejad.”
“Mousavi has already taken steps to back his words with action.
In an unprecedented move, Mousavi, the leading reformist contender, introduced his wife Zahra Rahnavard onto the campaign platform alongside him.
Rahnavard is an accomplished intellectual in her own right – a sculptor, author and chancellor of Tehran’s liberal arts-strong Al-Zahra University.
She will also be Iran’s first First Lady – in the public sense of the term – if her husband is elected.
Already, she is being touted as a national heroine, her face gazing out alongside Mousavi’s on posters and her name being chanted at rallies and demonstrations.”
It’s time for worldwide laws banning the violence, sloth, and abuse of polygamy and the abusive temporary marriages
“Furthermore, in perhaps one of the most radical statements he has made to date, Mousavi declared his belief in legal monogamy, in stark contrast to Islamic law which allows men four “permanent wives” and countless “temporary marriages”.”
