TEHRAN (Reuters) - Moderate cleric Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and hard-liner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad led their rivals on Saturday in Iran's presidential poll, preliminary results showed. Sources close to the supervisory Guardian Council said Rafsanjani had taken 5.60 million of the 26.64 million votes counted out of an estimated 32 million ballots cast in Friday's election. Ahmadinejad was in second place with 5.24 million.

I wonder: When will the Iranian people stand up and demand their human rights, their innate God-given liberty? Do they have the courage? Looks like to me THEY DO NOT. Iranians are simply NOT as brave as Iraqis. Or even the Chinese of Tiannamen. I thinkm that the Iranians will remain in their chains until they have the courage to fight for their own freedom.
