The Big Dog of Iran under fire? It seems so…

Good morning, Netizens…


If you truly are curious about the political strife inside Iran, the ongoing battles between protesters and the factional government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the riot police took to the streets once again yesterday and more bloodshed occurred. However, you might want to read the following piece in detail, http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2009/06/21/76567.html as it tells of a covert attempt on the part of one of Iran’s principal government leaders, Ayatollah Rafsanjani, to overthrow or possibly force the resignation of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad.


This appears to be only the edge of the iceberg, as there are additional rumors circulating in various places on the Internet of a series of covert meetings between Rafsanjani and various other clerics to eliminate the position of Supreme Leader entirely. One source especially deserves close reading as it contains some rumors, and some facts: http://threatswatch.org/rapidrecon/2009/06/regime-change-iran-movement-se/


Thus far, nobody in authority has stepped forward to admit nor deny any of these allegations. However, given we have both major Iranian and several other web sites all stating this to be true, we can be relatively certain that major political unrest in Iran doesn’t start in the streets, but may extend fully to engulf the top of Iran’s government including the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khameini.


The election is ostensibly over, and perhaps for the moment Ahmadinejad has won, but it does appear that the battle for the hearts and souls of all of Iran is far from over. It may have just begun.
