Support for Iranian Students in Prison

International protection of jailed Iranian students by Bloggers

And, the post of spring will come to our land
With thousands of flowers in his hand
Certainty it will come,
That other should be passed”

Who is running Iran?

According to the following article final power is not in the hands of the Supreme Leader. Rather it is in the hands of others in Iran.

According to the following article, the clerics are declining in power. Apparantly the call from Khamanei to privitize institutions have been ingnored. To jumpstart the economy, privitization needs to happen and with it, the fall of the religious institutions and military foundations will follow.

'To some analysts, the Iranian political system is dominated by a Shiite clergy but the power base increasingly dilutes across a fragile system of elites."The country is no one's property," said one advocate in the Times. "The notion that someone owns the country and its people is our biggest problem and incurable disease."...'
