The head lines of
the news on Iran
were so different between today and yesterday .on Friday we read that:
"Powerful cleric says Iran in crisis.
Sermon comes as demonstrators clash with police outside Tehran University"
It was the first time that we were seeing ayatollah Rafsanjani to publicly criticize the government (e.g. Khamenehee) for its handling of election .Although he did not use harsh language, he was harsh enough to bother a lot of government supports. It was astonishing to see two ayatollahs battle it out in public. Ayatollahs are traditionally too wise to permit others see their conflict. They usually do not engage in the business of
public criticism of each other on a matter so important to the government. Obviously the stakes are too high to back off at this time. Rafsanjani's criticism of rigged election was so unwelcomed that today's headlines changed to:
"Iranian hardliners hit back at former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani on Saturday for criticizing the conduct of last month's election and its aftermath, highlighting deepening establishment divisions".
The deep division
in Iranian government is well known. I have named each group based on their harm
for the society. They are:
The zealots and 2)
the Corrupts. Although both groups do a good job of being zealots and Corrupt.
Each group has earned these titles well, and better than the other.
Since Khamenehee is much more of a menace for Iran and the world these days we will cover him tonight, and if there was a desire from the readers, we will cover the corrupts tomorrow.
Khamenehee is the supreme leader of Iran; he is a King without a crown but with a turban, making him half god and half demon. He is doing exactly the same things that he criticized others for. He calls himself an Ayatollah when he is not .He writes religious decrees when he is not qualified to do so and he lives in one of the Shah's castles, where he does not belong. He makes it very difficult for his followers to defend him, except that they are very well paid off, or on their way to heaven.
After several years of absolute power he has developed the same condition that all dictators develop "he really believes that he is somebody" .He has forgotten those days when he was a regular person like the rest of us. He has directly ordered the killing of so many people that he has lost his regard for human life, truth, morality and compassion. His choice of Ahmadinejad as president speaks volumes about his character and priorities. Last month he ordered the arrest of Rafsanjani's daughter which is totally unacceptable within his own culture. He has full control on Iranian oil which gives him all of the money of the world. Most of this wealth is wasted in training of the layer after layer of thugs and murderers whose job is just to protect him and his cronies. Although they are supposed to be religious fundamentalist, and are sworn to follow the traditions of Islam, we saw their savage methods of dealing with unarmed civilians and killing of women which is totally prohibited in Islam. Every day of Khamenehee's life is spent breaking the laws that he drafted, and ordering killing and torturing of the people that he has sworn to protect. He has sent thousands of people to the notorious Evin Prison, where no human being should ever go.
in one of his speeches which is on utube he chastising the secretary of higher education for sending Iranian students abroad. He prefers sending them to religious cities in Iran, so that they do not get corrupted like us. While, him and his regime are the embodiment of corruption and deceit.
No body knows from which medieval hole he has been dragged out of, but every body knows that he has no intention of going back. Ironically, the biggest danger to him is not
From us, if any thing, he might be toppled by revolutionary guards and the Iranian intelligence services, who are by far more dangerous than any boy else. His over estimation of his power and popularity prevents him from realizing what a dangerous game he is playing and how unpopular he is. All those chanting death to the dictator had only one man in mind and one only:
Ayatollah Muhammad Ali Khamenehee, the supreme leader of the Islamic republic of Iran
