Obama to Iran's leaders: Stop 'unjust' actions. Associated Press Article

Farsi piece from Gooya News, English piece for Associated Press
اوباما خطاب به رهبران ایران: دست از رفتار ظالمانه بردارید!

خبرنامه گویا: باراک اوباما، رئیس جمهور آمریکا روز شنبه از حکومت ایران خواست تا دست از سرکوب" بردارد.
آقای اوباما می گوید حکومت ایران باید بداند که جهان ناظر (رویدادهای ایران) است. ما برای جان هر بی گناهی که از دست برود به سوگ می نشینیم.
این سخنان شدیدترین حملات لفظی رئیس جمهور آمریکا در پی حوادث پس از انتخابلات محسوب می شود. او تاکنون بشدت سعی کرده دولتش را از اتهام دخالت در امور داخلی ایران برحذر دارد.
آقای اوباما که همزمان با درگیری های تازه در تهران و برخی دیگر از شهرهای ایران با انتشار یک بیانیه اعلام موضع کرده گفت: ما از حکومت ایران می خواهیم همه رفتارهای خشن و ظالمانه را علیه مردم خودش متوقف کند.
به گفته آقای اوباما: حق جهانی تجمع و آزادی بیان باید محترم شمرده شود و ایالات متحده آمریکا درکنار همه کسانی است که به دنبال این حقوق هستند.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Saturday challenged Iran's government to halt a "violent and unjust" crackdown on dissenters, using his bluntest language yet to condemn Tehran's postelection response.
Obama has sought a measured reaction to avoid being drawn in as a meddler in Iranian affairs. Yet his comments have grown more pointed as the clashes intensified, and his latest remarks took direct aim at Iranian leaders.
"We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people," Obama said in a written statement. "The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights."
Obama has searched for the right tone in light of political pressures on all sides. On Capitol Hill, Congress pressed him to condemn the Iranian government's response. In Iran, the leadership was poised to blame the U.S. for interference and draw Obama in more directly.
Obama met with advisers at the White House as developments in Iran grew more ominous, with police seen beating protesters.
"Suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away," the president said, recalling a theme from the speech he gave in Cairo, Egypt, this month.
"The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government," Obama said. "If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion."
Obama's comments came as protesters outside the White House waved Iranian flags and denounced Iranian government efforts to suppress the protesters.

The National Iranian American Council, a leading organization of Iranian-Americans in the U.S., called for new elections while demanding an end to the violence "against unarmed protesters and bystanders."
"The only plausible way to end the violence is for new elections to be held with independent monitors ensuring its fairness," the group said in a statement. "Such elections would be consistent with the Iranian constitution."
