Remember Monday’s post on how important it was to the survival of Iran’s mullah regime that people be allowed to vent?

The mullahs just closed off another avenue:


Iran’s judiciary on Wednesday night shut down two reformist dailies that had published long extracts from a letter by parliamentary deputies criticising Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader.

The judiciary also ordered internet service providers to filter three websites of reformist organisations.

The moves come on the eve of the Islamic republic’s seventh parliamentary election.

Bad move.
