Tehran, Iran, Oct. 24 – One of Iran’s most radical Islamist groups warned in a statement on Sunday enemies of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to “watch out” for themselves if they try to infiltrate the hard-line President’s new government.

Ansar-e Hezbollah said in a statement issued by its branch in the city of Mashad, northeast Iran, that the election of Ahmadinejad was the selection of the path of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The group, whose ideology is based on an extremist interpretation of Islam, said that certain political currents that were “ousted through the door” with the second round of the presidential elections in June were now trying to “enter [the political ground”> through the window”.

“The eyes of Hezbollah are closely watching” such currents, the group announced, adding that it was aware of their history.

Ansar-e Hezbollah “stands against any diversion” from the path of the Supreme Leader, the statement said, while warning such political currents “Watch out for yourselves!”

Ansar-e Hezbollah is a paramilitary force that acts as the clerical regime’s “shock troops” to put down anti-government demonstrations and instil terror in members of the public. Iranian officials have conceded in the past that the group has been organised and led by close confidants of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, such as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati.

In a revealing account of his years as a member of the leadership council of Ansar-e Hezbollah, defector Amir Farshad Ebrahimi wrote that the group’s leader had been given the go-ahead by the Supreme Leader himself in a meeting in autumn 1992 to form an Iranian version of Hezbollah.
