Iranian rulers for years have tried to create a deceptive spiritual image of themselves in the eyes of Iranians and also the international Muslim community to make believe that they are some how â€œGod sent.â€
If it was not for the inhumane and barbaric actions of these people, their actions could resemble a comedy in the eyes of a moderately sane observer. Knowing the true nature of this government and individuals, this would make quite a subject for cartoonists and comedy writers.
Recently, Ahmadinejad, the new President of Islamic Republic who had a dÃ©but a few months ago as a hostage taker in 1979 American Embassy crisis in Tehran, claimed on public television that when speaking at the United Nations last September, he was "surrounded by a holy light."
Fundamentalism relies on unwary of the public to deceive and rule. By claiming to represent God on this plant, they torture and kill opponents, recruit suicide bombers and justify terrorism.
