Iran Leader Dead, Opposition Says
Pravda ^ | 10/15/09

Posted on 10/15/2009 11:06:05 PM PDT by Dave346

Sources at the Iranian opposition said that the spiritual leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has died. The Iranian police have increased their activities in the streets of Teheran recently. For the time being, it is known that Khamenei lost consciousness on Monday afternoon and was hospitalized. Only his son and personal therapist have the right to visit Ayatollah at hospital. Khamenei reportedly lapsed into coma, although spokespeople for the Iranian opposition say that the spiritual leader has passed away. The Iranian administration has not commented the situation yet. Several western publications said that the information about Khamenei’s death could not be regarded as trustworthy, although the rumors may eventually prove to be true. At least, the Iranians did not conceal the poor state of health of the 70-year-old spiritual leader of the nation.

Pravda? You got a better source than that?

This comes from Michael Leeden, who declared Khamenei alive three years ago.

Until there’s evidence that he’s dead, I’m not buying this...

Khamenei reportedly lapsed into coma, although spokespeople for the Iranian opposition say that the spiritual leader has passed away.

Okay, it's a really, really deep coma.

Whoa....starting the day with good news!

So who will succeed him? His son Mujtaba has been behind the election unrest and has always wanted the job.

Rafsanjani has always wanted the job as well, and he wants to be darn sure Mujtaba doesn’t get it.

Montazeri would’ve had the job had Khamenei not gotten in the way. Khamenei put him under house arrest, but now he’s dead.

Lots of possibilities here...

The Assembly of Experts chooses a new Supreme Leader, and Rafsanjani heads the A of E. He hates Ahmadinejad and has been criticizing Khamenei lately. If he or Montazeri gets the job, they may declare the election invalid, boot out Ahmadinejad, and put in Musavi.
