Ahmadinejad rival warns: Iran will unite behind the mullahs if attacked

Iran’s opposition would unite with the government in case of an Israeli attack on its nuclear sites, former president Mohammad Khatami said on his website Monday.

“If there should one day be any military interference in Iran, then all factions, regardless of reformists or non-reformists, would get united and confront the attack,” said the cleric, who is a harsh critic of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad…

“There is a bad idea behind these claims and a scenario for increasing pressure on Iran,” Khatami said.
