Oh, boy, every single religion gets its share of crazy prophets. And, here, in Iran, those who came to power following the fall of the Shah, have no interest in seeing their powers abated.
Is it possible that Islam will finally take a hit for this lunacy? It seems to me there are lots of people who may tell you they adhere to the religion ... but people have been known to "pay it lip service." Before their own children grow and walk away.
I always thought Islam offered compliant women. And, a feeling of community. No matter where you went and lived. This was once its strong suit.
And, then? Well for the Saud's, their unbelievable oil wealth has led to their insanity. I guess if you get rich enough no one can tell you that you're lacking leadership skills?
But to pull such a voter fraud? And, not to notice, with such little choice, the people of Iran went out to vote against Ahmadinijad? He "won" two elections by fraud. And, I'm not talking a mere 312 votes. I'm talking there never was a fair count! Millions were told their votes weren't important. Just the game. Khamenei is one crazy fella. He thought he could get away with his "divine" will. I think he lost the bet.
