The other Iranian moderate

Update: this post is based on a misinformation, see more here.

I have chosen this headline, since I have already posted on one such moderate in Hashemi Rafsanjani - a moderate murderer.

The man who is much on the agenda these days, mainly as a moderate alternative to Mahmoud the Mad is Mohammad Khatami:

Khatami had run on a platform of liberalization and reform. During his two terms as president, Khatami advocated freedom of expression, tolerance and civil society, constructive diplomatic relations with other states including those in the European Union and Asia, and an economic policy that supported a free market and foreign investment.
Pure angel. Anyway, here he appears again:

Notice - he is the one not smiling. Must be a moderate then...

It's Khatami at a wax museum in Iran which depicts various tortures and crimes committed under the Shah. It is simply a political propaganda. If you were an Iranian you would know very well that after 1979 revolution in Iran no one is allowed to wear ties in state offices. The guy on the foreground represents a torturer under Shah regime.

If you'd cared to read the first line of this post, where it says "Update", you would have seen that this info is already old by now...

But thanks for good intentions.
