In Iran This is Huge as Iran's ex Prime Ministers challenge Khamenei's ability to rule!
Iranian ex-MPs challenge Khamenei
We have been watching events in Iran unfold on a daily basis as those protesting the stolen election to keep Ahmadinejad and his fascist agenda in power. Despite the brutality and death inflicted on those protesting the election along with constant threats and demands to cease and desist the demand by the people to be heard may have gone underground just a bit but it continues.
Cries of death to the Dictator Khamenei continues and knowing President Ali Akbar Rafsanjani, who heads the Assembly of Experts is himself still protesting loudly over the stolen election and the way Ahmadinejad has been selecting his new cabinet along with the brutal performance of Ayatollah Khamenei this new development is very promising. Rafsanjani too wants the alleged rapes and murders in prison probed along with the brutality and deaths inflicted on the children of the 1979 revolution.
Knowing a month ago Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the former Iranian president said that Iran is in crisis and openly continued to support Moussavi despite condemnation for doing so. I am pretty pleased to know that the power to remove Khamenei may be in Rafsanjani's hands as the cries of death to the dictator have been changed to requests by former MP's to have Khamenei removed as the so called Supreme leader because as far as they are concerned Khamenei has proven incapable of fulfilling his constitutional duties and should be dismissed.
As most of you know by now Rafsanjani heads the Assembly of experts who amongst other things can dismiss the Supreme leader if it is deemed that he is incapable of fulfilling his constitutional duties I know I am an outsider but he undoubtedly has. Anyway events continue to ratchet up towards a regime change in Iran as a group of MP's have now sent a letter to Rafsanjani expressing their concern that Khamenei may be unable to perform his constitutional duties. The brave souls were not named nor did they sign the letter!
He is unfit as he does not care about the will of the people therefore by that alone by Revolution standards he should step down or be replaced. The letter was addressed to former Iranian President Ali Akbar Rafsanjani, who heads the Assembly of Experts demanding a legal probe on the basis of Article 111 of the constitution, which is one of the responsibilities of the Assembly of Experts.
Unless they identify themselves endangering their lives and the stability of Iran the letter can be dismissed as phony and even written by Rafsanjani himself. I agree with this but it could be very dangerous and destabilizing for Iran allowing the ruthless IRGC and Basij to brutally clamp down and quell this once and for all. Maybe they wrote the letter.
The letter denounced the recent trials of protesters held in Tehran and the fascist joke of court hearings. . It also said Kahrizak prison where much of the alleged abuse of detainees took place including rape and murder, was worse than Abu Ghraib, Iraq, and Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. As of yet there has so far been no response from the assembly to the letter.
The letter breaks a taboo among Iran's political classes against openly challenging the supreme leader, whose word has long been unquestioned. I am stunned that instead of releasing the innocent protesters there are calls for Islamic justice which is the amputation of hands and feet or worse. Amidst the fascism and stolen elections Iran has actually issued a new stamp to commemorate the stolen elections. Adding insult to insult to insult to insult. It just doesn't stop!
