President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been a vigorous foe of those who opposes his style of leadership, particularly the focus on human rights or democracy. He regards himself as leader of “conservatives” who oppose liberal or moderate members of the clergy. Imagine is surprise to realize there are “conservatives” who believe his conservatism is not conservative enough. He has run afoul of Muslim fundamentalist who disagree with his form of fundamentalism. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has made clear to the president of the country that his days of leadership are over. Ahmadeinejad finally admitted reality regarding his relationship with the supreme leader and conservatives. “It is very clear now that we are 180 degrees away them them-we actually are on opposite sides.”
Those who dare support the president soon discover they are accused of “sorcery” or “deviancy” or even, “espionage.” Ah, in the war of politics, the worse strategy is to be caught trying to gather all power. That is the crime of Ahmaindejad, he wanted too much power!
