"Don't Defy Me"

Christiane Amanpour writes:

Khamenei. . .directly addressed the people on the streets, telling them it was time to end their protests and pursue their grievances through the Guardian Council, which has already said it will recount some of the votes.

And he made clear there would not be another election, warning that the consequences of any further violence or public disturbances would be borne by those responsible. Analysts in Iran suggest this was Khamenei's way of sending a religious ultimatum to the people: Come off the streets, don't defy me and work out these problems through the legal system.

Based on all that we have witnessed via sound bites/ video/Twitter in the past week, I doubt that he will silence Democracy with a religious ultimatum.
