Iran’s former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is shown with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamanei. According to Iran’s Constitution, the Supreme Leader is responsible for supervision of “the general policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” which means that he sets the tone and direction of Iran’s domestic and foreign policies. The Supreme Leader also is commander-in-chief of the armed forces and controls the Islamic Republic’s intelligence and security operations; he alone can declare war or peace. He is also the supreme commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The former president of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been arrested for inciting unrest against the government, it was reported.

The ex-leader was apprehended during a visit to the western city of Busehehr on December 28, according to Al-Quds Al-Arabi.

The newspaper reported that Ahmadinejad said: ‘Some of the current leaders live detached from the problems and concerns of the people, and do not know anything about the reality of society.’

It is also claimed he said Iran was suffering ‘mismanagement’ and that President Hassan Rouhani’s government ‘believes that they own the land and that the people are an ignorant society’.

It comes after more than a week of unrest in Iran, as demonstrators took to the streets to protest against the government.

The unrest was sparked by a hike in food prices amid soaring unemployment

At least 21 people have been killed, and hundreds have been arrested.

Pro-government rallies were held in response with officials blaming the anti-government unrest on foreign meddling.

Authorities are now said to be seeking to place Ahmadinejad under house arrest.

Today, the Iranian parliament held a closed-door meeting to discuss the deadly protests that shook the country.

In December, Ahmadinejad’s former deputy Hamid Baghaie was sentenced to 15 years in prison on financial charges.

Among his charges was reportedly ‘insulting judiciary officials’ for which he was sentenced to two years and six months in prison.

He was imprisoned for seven months in 2015 for reasons that were never made public, though he was previously investigated for irregularities during his time in office.

    After the protest in Iran has been declared over, the judiciary has demanded the maximum punishment for the leaders of the regime-critical rallies. This should include opposition and monarchists.

    Democracy clerical style .
    I guess ” Vilayat al Faqih” means “clerical dictatorship “.
    A cleric Khamanei who was appointed by a body that he picks (the Assembly of Experts ) is running the country while the president who is elected by the people has absolutely no power

      Well base your racist Jew hate spew on something more credible then yellow bullshit…….

      “Professor David Yeroshalmi, author of The Jews of Iran in the 19th century and an expert on Iranian Jewish communities, disputes the validity of this argument. “There is no such meaning for the word ‘sabour’ in any of the Persian Jewish dialects, nor does it mean Jewish prayer shawl in Persian. Also, the name Sabourjian is not a well-known Jewish name,” he stated in a recent interview. In fact, Iranian Jews use the Hebrew word “tzitzit” to describe the Jewish prayer shawl. Yeroshalmi, a scholar at Tel Aviv University’s Center for Iranian Studies, also went on to dispute the article’s findings that the “-jian” ending to the name specifically showed the family had been practising Jews. “This ending is in no way sufficient to judge whether someone has a Jewish background. Many Muslim surnames have the same ending,” he stated.”

    He did give that awesome 9/11 speech at the UN. They should slap him on the wrist and let him go already. And he’s not a Jew; they put out the same folk-tale about Hitler.
