Iranian cleric says "rioters" should be executed

Reuters writes about an Iranian Cleric that has proclaimed publicly that the instigators of the Iran protests (which many are calling Iran’s Green Revolution with Lebanon in mind) should be executed.

The story is a report on how Iran’s Guardian Council is working to validate the election and secure Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s election victory for another Presidential term.

Once you read the Reuters article, notice that a disclaimer is used early. Reuters wants its readers to be aware that Iran controls the information that goes out to Western news agencies and reporters. I am assuming this means that the control of facts is directly from Iran. As you read the Reuters article do what former Soviet citizens used to do: read between the lines to know what the facts mean.
