Iran's President Belongs To A Sect So Lunatic Even The Ayatollah Khomeinhi Feared It

Distressing... except that this sort of bad crazy can't stay in power for long:

Even the Old Guard of Iran's Islamic revolution is openly appalled by the new regime's ultra-conservative policies, with former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani in an unprecedented public warning that the new government and its purges are damaging Iran at home and abroad.

...

President Ahmadinejad is a member of the Hojatieh sect, seen by many Shiite Muslims as verging on the lunatic fringe of Islam, and thought to be so extreme by Ayatollah Khomeini whose 1979 revolution overthrew the shah that it was driven underground in 1983. The Hojatieh sect is now very much back in favor with the new Iranian government, and the new president is a fervent admirer of its spiritual leader, Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, known in secular circles in Tehran as "the crazed one."

Let us recap: the man seeking the bomb and threatening to remove Israel from the face of the earth belongs to a cult so extreme that even the other Iranian maniac mullahs consider it "fringe" and "crazy."

There is either going to be a revolution or there is going to be shooting war, possibly a nuclear one.
