In the past few weeks, this turbulence took quite a bit of attention, since Ali Khamenei on the one hand and Mahmund Ahmadinejad, on the other hand the inability and inefficiency but accused the former Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki. Only on Sunday, the 12th December, Bassij gathered groups on behalf of students of at Tehran University in front of the British Embassy, to protest loudly and British flags to rip and burn. On the same day, different mullahs in the Iranian Parliament against the British Government raged.
You ereiferten are about how the British Ambassador could dare to call the arrests by the Government of Iran in his personal webblog arbitrarily and to protest against the arrest of human rights lawyer, as Ms. Nasrin Sotoudeh. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the National Security Commission, demanded in a replica that is published on its Web site, referring to the statements made by the British Ambassador, that the Iranians should give a lesson in diplomatic code the British Ambassador and show him the right way to behave. The mullahs were of the opinion that the Iranian Government wouldn’t after their responsibility, if she allow the British Ambassador to criticize them or get his advice like could be. In the same chaotic Parliament session, some lawmakers demanded even the closure of the British Embassy in Iran. They then called that Iran should shut down the political contacts with the United Kingdom, have the British Ambassador from the Iran and withdraw the own Ambassador from the United Kingdom. Mottakis dismissal if you look but closer on the tensions between the two countries, soon becomes clear that the roots of the tensions are much deeper. A few days ago, sent the Government of Manuchehr mottak i in Senegal and announced his dismissal in the Iranian radio shortly after Mottakis departure.
