Ruling clerics play God in Iran

Apparently the clerics in charge of Iran think they are God.

"Iran experts have said that the government hastily ordered the executions of Arash Rahmanipour and Mohammad-Reza Ali-Zamani, 37, another political prisoner, to intimidate the opposition and to silence the protests that have persisted since the disputed June 12 presidential elections.

With the government’s opponents planning another large demonstration on Feb. 11, the country is bracing for another wave of executions. At least nine other prisoners have been charged with the capital crime of moharebeh, which means waging war against God."

The cleric regime in Iran is increasing fearful of the growing opposition tide. In its fear it is striking out murderously at its opponents.
