Very nuanced report not overloaded with politics by an American Iranian read on http://tehranbureau.com/election-shiraz/
In another article by someone else when Khamenei was asked what books he reads he said the "Biography of Beria".
Ahamadi is zero, we should focus on the Iranian society which silently drifted somewhere else as a whole.
Ahmadi and Khamenei may end up in a vacuum and since they are technically unable to kill so many people as Stalin did they are going to lose power and discredit anything revolutionary or islamic on an even much higher speed.
Many clerics know that this exactly kills their islam right now for ever and are or will be forced to oppose this shrinking regime in one way or another. That will add to the tension and create a real deadlock. All of these actors will be marginal including Mousavi in the end.
Watch closely, the whole thing will be as much interesting as the end of the Soviets with many unexpected turns. With much more motivated and interesting people on the ground doing the tough anonymous job.
Note also that Mubarak wrote a congratulation letter to Ahmadi, this Mubarak whom this regime wanted publically to be killed at home. Those rulers are really scared in ME and we should know that.
They did it for their kids...not for islam exactly.
I would not be surprized if we find out one day that those blasts have more influence outside Iraq - via media. For ex. any discussion about the end of the "war" in Iraq is more or less cancelled.
Copyright: Monsieur Mohammad. We saw eruption of this kind of discipline in dar-al-Saddam Hussein - in Iraq. Yes - arresting those who did not watch the speeches of Saddam Hussein on TV (informers - your own disciplined kids in the school). Yes - wonderfull discipline and dedication of the raped women blowing themselves etc.
All were very religious, in the West we call it "scared to death" and "brain washed".
Many who went to protest during Rafsandjani the "Mongol"´s sermon two weeks ago (using it as a pretext to continue protesting) had to learn fast how to make a namaz from regular believers.
It is turning into a regular comedy: Allahoakbar was a mischief reminding the regime of a coming revolution. It was prohibited by the regime! The dog may start biting its own tail. There are many other signs of the same.
We should feel deeply offended by this miscalculation of "our books".
I propose we call ourselves the "People of the Libraries" to respect us as a whole. And let them address us that way or we start rioting and destroying their properties (if they have some).
