Now, the regime is accusing Montazeri of memory loss and Alzheimer's. His reply says that he is fine and he recites a persian proverb that essentially means "you have Alzheimer's yourself'" . LoL
Quite a bit of “usurping” going around these days.
Now, the regime is accusing Montazeri of memory loss and Alzheimer’s.
Ah the “Palin” treatment.
It doesn’t work here, it won’t work there.
Montazeri says "those who have lost, religiously and reasonably, the credibility for serving the public, are automatically dismissed, and the continuation of their work has no legitimacy."
The Grand Ayatollah also says Iranians have a religious right and duty to protest their leaders, if those leaders violate the tenets of Islam by usurping power.
"People must express their opinion about the illegitimacy and lack of their approval of their performance, and seek their dismissal through the best and least harmful way. It is clear that this is a societal duty of everyone, and all the people, regardless of their social positions and according to their knowledge and capability, must participate in this endeavor, and cannot shirk their responsibility."
Montazeri's comments, which came in the form of answers to questions posed by one of his former pupils, were reported by the new, independent, Web-based news outlet Tehran Bureau. He issued the statements as Islamic "fatwas," or religious decrees.
