Paris, 6 May, (IPS) In a speech on 4 May in the small southern city of Kazeroun, Fars Province, where he was on a visit, Ayatollah Ali Khameneh’i, the megalomaniac leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran warned “anybody who try to divide the people from the Government and drum on differences, he is acting against the interests of the regime and the nation”, touching on the very disease that destroy all dictatorial regimes.
Like any other dictator, Mr. Khameneh’i do not like to hear the truth and not see the realities, prefers sitting in his ivory tower, flanked by courtesans that equipped his tower with loudspeakers that bring to his ears things he would like to hear, like “every thing in Iran is better than anywhere else, thanks to your wise leadership. Under Islam, people of your country are the happiest, the freest, the smartest, and the more intelligent of the world, particularly the young ones”
Looking outside from the prism-like windows of the tower, the Leader do not see but what he wants to see: A beautiful land, full of modern factories, flourishing agriculture, soldiers training with some of the most deadliest weapons, including one named “Suicide”, a happy people busy thanking God for having send to them the one of his sons, the Great, Beloved, Mighty, Wise, Fearless Ayatollah Ali Khameneh’i, the most intelligent of all leaders of the world.
You want an example? Read this: On Thursday 8 May, Hojjatoleslam Mostafa Pourmohammad, the Interior Minister who, despite the fact that he had been removed three weeks ago, continues to act as a full fledged minister, said in Shiraz (the capital city of the southern Province of Fars) that the reason the Almighty kindly helped in “the arrest of the terrorists who exploded a bomb in a crowded mosque in this city and their network dismantled, was because of the presence of the Great Leader of the Revolution in the Province of Fars and the huge, warm welcome the population of the Province reserved to the Great, Beloved Leader. The arrest of the perpetrators is a gift to the families of the victim, made to them on the happy occasion of the presence of the Great Leader in this Province”.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is the heart of the Muslim Nation, the centre and the axis of the magnificent movement of the awakening of Muslims", according to Mr. Khameneh'i
At the time, the authorities including the Information (Intelligence) and the Interior ministries had assured that the explosion, which had killed at least 14 people and wounded another 200, was an accident and not the result of a terrorist action.
Peering further, with a binoculars made especially for him, he see his soldiers raising the green flags of Islam on top of all main buildings of the world, the White House, the Kremlin, the Elysee, the Buckingham Palace, the People Palace, the Brandenburg in Berlin. Nearer or southward, he sees millions of people reading from his teachings in religion, -- no matter that he is a junior cleric -- international politics, economics, social sciences, culture and literature, begging their officials to copy the model of society, justice, prosperity and governance from Iran, renamed “The Islam City”.
But on the West, the Great, Beloved Leader sees only enemies dedicated to undermine his marvelous regime, because in his view, they are afraid that the regime of Khameneh’i became a model for the infidels too. Lilliputians, led by an ugly Satan waving the flag of the United States that and directing hopelessly some of his followers, are trying desperately to destroy the indestructible tower of Islam, advises from a hideous personage, The Zionist.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is the heart of the Muslim Nation, the centre and the axis of the magnificent movement of the awakening of Muslims, this is the reason why the bullying powers and the oppressors are afraid from the increasing attention of the Muslims to this Iranian model”, Mr. Khameneh’i told the crowd of a city in the Fars Province on 8 May, adding “all the political, security, economic and propaganda attacks of the imperialists against the Islamic Republic of Iran is to prevent Muslims from taking model from the Islamic Republic of Iran”, according to the semi-official Students News Agency ISNA.
If told that in his regime, the inflation, -- officially estimated at 20 per cent, but experts put it at over 25 per cent -- is one of the highest in the world, that despite a yearly revenues of over 70 billions US dollars, almost half of the population is living under the total poverty line, that because of unemployment, drug addiction, mostly among the young generation, is the highest in the world, that corruption, especially among the ruling clerics, is widespread, that nepotism is routine among senior officials – the Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Manouchehr Mottaki, has secured lucrative jobs at his ministry for his wife, a son and a daughter --, that the poor are becoming poorer and the rich richer, that injustice, segregation and discrimination are the regime’s trade mark, that there is no freedom and what is left is nothing but farce, that dissidents, women, youngsters, journalists, intellectuals, scholars and religious minorities and ethnics are ordinary victims of severe crackdown he has instrumentalised, he would immediately accuse the unfortunate “truth teller” of “ high treason”, “working for the enemies”, “playing in the hands of the enemies” he sees everywhere and place behind bars.
