As the Iranian election nears, pundits are wondering who will be the next president of Iran and should the president wait to start negotiations after the elections? The facts are that Ahmadinejad will be “reelected”. He has the approval of the representative of Allah on Earth, Ayatollah Khamenei, who is pleased by his performance as the president.
Ahmadinejad also possesses the power to intimidate and drag every single voter the regime can get out to vote for him and no one else. With a tight grip on the country and the approval of the sole ruler of the land, Ayatollah Khamenei, how can Ahmadinejad lose the next month’s elections?
The rule of the clergy, valayate Faghih, has been unprecedented, never practiced nor mentioned in Koran or the Sharia laws. The Iranian Islamic regime was based solely on a fallacious concept by Ayatollah Khomeini to legitimize his own ascendance to power. When Khomeini promised in Paris that once in Iran, he would go back to teaching at the seminary in the city of Qom and leave the governing of the country to the people no one would have believed he was lying to them.
The Islamic Republic of Iran operates under the absolute rule of one clergy who claims to be the representative of Allah on earth and does not believe in the will of the people. But as the revolution of 1979 was about more political freedom, Khomeini had to accommodate the people with a part in the governing through pretend elections.
In Iran’s elections the leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, hand picks among the candidates - - who must have a proven history of loyalty to the Islamic revolution and the person of the leader. The man who is his choice for the presidency will be given all the verbal support in the Friday sermons, and access to the government-owned radio and television.
The voters get a stamp on their birth certificates; if you are a government employee and do not have the stamp you will be unemployed the next day. Revolutionary Guardsmen of all branches will vote with their families because they are a part of the regime and the guardians of the revolution. The regular military in charge of defending the country have to vote, or else.
Although the government campaigns hard in every city and urges the people to vote the number of voters has remained very low. When people are asked about voting on the elections they laugh and say, Are you joking? This is not an election, it is a selection and an Appointment!
When the ballots are counted, under the keen observation of the leader’s men, the “right” person, who has been supported by him, will get the majority of the votes.
Ahmadinejad has been setting up his rule for a long time to come. He is a member of the Revolutionary Guards Corp, and during the past four years he has placed his trusted RGC comrades in every key position in his cabinet and around the country.
Nine cabinet positions over the most powerful departments of the government are given to his friends in RGC; this includes the ministry of interior that oversees the elections. The office of the director of the elections is also under the control of another RGC comrade.
Also with the consent of the leader, Ahmadinejad has recently given the management of the government-controlled radio and Television to another loyal Guardsman, who has actually denied access to Ahmadinejad’s opponent, Mosavi.
The governors of all the 30 provinces of Iran are either retired or active RGC and so are the mayors of all the cities in the country.
As U.S. Representative, Henry Waxman suggested to President Obama: Do not wait for Iranian elections to embark on negotiations with the Islamic regime. It would also be wise for the president to make sure he will set a time limit for dialogue, otherwise he will spend all his four years in the office spinning a negotiation wheel, while the RGC is completing their nuclear bomb and surprise him with a test, just as North Korea’s Kim Jong Il did this week.

The Vatican failed in an attempt to cover up the contents of a prayer by a Muslim cleric at an interfaith "Prayer for Peace" service held in the Vatican garden on June 8. Departing from a pre-approved script, the imam recited verses 284-286 of Sura 2 from the Koran, the latter part of which calls on Allah to grant Muslims victory over non-Muslims.

They carried banners saying, "Stop Israeli State Terror," but some went off-message, deciding, apparently, that it did not matter if their targets were Israelis or not.
In the Netherlands, fresh from a pro-ISIS rally in Amsterdam, the home of the Chief Rabbi -- not Israeli, just Jewish -- was attacked twice in one week.

"We know that Hamas uses human shields. But why would you report this when you are sitting in the middle of the Gaza Strip, surrounded by Hamas gunmen?" — Reporter covering the war, who asked not to be identified.
Besides the human shields story there is another item that the international media choose to ignore: the extrajudicial execution of Palestinian "collaborators" during the last two weeks. The executions were reportedly carried out in the most brutal manner. Hamas has also been shooting suspected "collaborators" in the legs to prevent them from moving around.
It is the media that is helping Hamas get away with war crimes.

This was the first time since World War II that an anti-Semitic pogrom took place in France.
Almost all French politicians adopt an attitude of appeasement toward the enemies of Israel and Jews. They act as if they did not see that the hate speech that France finances in the Middle East is now spreading throughout France itself.
No major French television report speaks of Hamas's genocidal Jew-hatred or of the use of Arab women and children as human shields. Criticizing radical Islam on public television is now almost impossible. Members of the Israeli government are never interviewed on French television.
French politicians know that 70% of all the inmates in French prisons are Muslims, and that these prisons have been transformed into recruiting centers for jihadists.
