Quotes

...An editor working for the Reformist newspaper Shargh told Al-Monitor:  "Rafsanjani became even more popular after he was disqualified, as the depth of his disagreement with Ayatollah Khamenei became clear to everyone. This is why Rafsanjani’s support of Rouhani encouraged the moderates to vote for Rouhani. In the absence of Karroubi and Mousavi, Rafsanjani and Khatami have become the main pillars of the Reformist movement in Iran. Rouhani directly thanked Rafsanjani and Khatami during a television address only a few hours after he won the election."
...deliberately allowed to falls through the filters of the Guardian Council for the sake of state expediency, Larijani would still accuse him to be "a person who has issues and lacks the right qualifications" and instead of letting him assume his elected post would either put him under house arrest or send him to prison...
...The Bush Administration had drawn a red line at Iran "mastering the technology of enrichment” — but Iran crossed that line six years ago, and once a technology is mastered, it can’t be unlearned. Still, Israel, France and many in Washington had insisted that Iran could not be allowed to enrich uranium on its own soil, even in a certifiably peaceful nuclear program, because that technology gives Iran the mean to build a bomb. The Obama Administration had been more ambiguous on the issue, at some points signaling a zero-enrichment policy and at other points accepting that once Iran had taken the steps necessary to assure the international community of its peaceful intent, it could exercise all the rights of a signatory of the Non-Proliferation Treaty — which would include enriching uranium."
