Khamenei's Line in the Sand

While Khamenei called on those who don't believe the results to use proper legal avenues, such as requesting the recounting of ballots in their presence, he did not issue a call for a new vote. He also criticized the street protests and said those who caused violence during demonstrations would be held accountable. . . .

And as for street unrest, Khamenei said "extremism in the country in society, any extremist move will fan up another extremist move. "If political elite want to ignore law and break the law and take wrong measures which are harmful, willy nilly, they will be held accountable for all the violence and blood and rioting."
