Fatemeh Rajabi: Position of president must be eliminated!

by aynak

Fatemeh Rajabi is a "journalist" and the wife of Elaham who is  a member of gaurdian council and an Islamic Republic spokesman. In this interview, which was published in 50th edition of Hamshahri, Rajbi expresses her opinion that the office of presidency must be eliminated. She sees the role of an elected president as a direct challenge to Valeeh Fagheeh, who should have the full control of the government. In her view, a person must be appointed by Valeeh Fagheeh (like a prime minister) which would simply implement VF's policies. In addition she does not believe in political parties, as she believes is a corrupt institution.

Her views are important, as it sheds light to the vision of those controlling the gaurdian council, and the future Iran they want to rule. Mesbah Yazdi, the theorician of revival of absolute Valeeh Fagheeh, has been much vocal in recent months, in reiterating the role of VF as the spokesman for God. A person whose orders must only be obyed witheout question.

The article is very revealing and informative. As many, including the leading human rights activist Kareem Lahiji have for decades argued against the paradox of -- Islamic Republic --  favoring the Republic, this appears to be the start of a new attempt to eliminate the -- Republic --, as Rajabi clearly favors and creating a Islamic Regime (Hokoomat) instead. The fact that the city council election, scheduled for this summer were postponed may be the begining of the new trend.

People aren't fools. An elected office however fake appears more legitimate to them than an appointed position. Ahmadinejad seems quite aware of this too. The halo business early on was a direct challenge to Khamenei's monopoly of divine authority over the government. Which is why Ahamdi fans were told to cut it out.


interesting developement

Are we that naive?

"...........new attempt to eliminate the -- Republic --, as Rajabi clearly favors and creating a Islamic Regime (Hokoomat) instead...."

Who're we kidding? Does anyone not blinded by religion believe that there's ever been any legitimacy to this regime, republic or otherwise?

This has been an Islamic Regime - hokoomat - from the get go, come on.

They want to wipe Persian identity once and for all. They are doing it as we bicker with each other right here, right now. They have their paid "followers" day and night to ensure we just do that by enticing touchy debates on subjects near and dear to our hearts, by creating debates on whether the shah was bad, and how bad he was, by creating hot topic debates related to the arab-israeli conflict which most of us fall for.

They are doing it right now, by changing school books, by promoting brain-drain, by allowing our national heritage to slowly diaspear into oblivion, by systematic brainwashing of Iranian children in schools, by Islamic version of ethnic cleansing.......

The only thing is that this time, these are Iranains doing it, at least by name and ID card they are.





Thanks for posting, interesting news

I think Revor has got it right and I agree with that compelely.  That is not only in Iran but every where.  Religion is the root of most evil.



To the contrary Mahmudg

If you read the text, she explicitly states:

"In the past 30 years, one of our biggest problems has been the voting and the outcomes!"

The fact that she wants to eliminate the "Republic" shows thing are working better than your solution which is still trying to install a government like IRI in Iraq and Afghanestan. 



and yet we have bleeding heart liberals

by mahmoudg on

who think this regime can be resurrected or refomred by sanctions or the will of the poeple.  People like her, who are fortunatley only in the thousands, must be eliminiated by surgical strikes and nature willing we shall accomplish that.


It will be nice

by MRX1 on

to have all of the them and their roles eliminated alltogether.


I don't think it's possible

by revor on

I don't think it's possible to have a fair and just government when religion is added to the mix. The whole seperation of church and state thing allows for religious freedoms and prevents religious zealots from having influence in what is fair and just.
