Mesbah Yazdi

"Islam Allows Raping, Torturing Prisoners" Meet Mesbah Yazdi, spiritual guide for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. If you have any illusions about his brand of Islam being a puritanical rejection of western decadence, you need to update your information. According to Arutz Sheva, all is permitted to jailers in punishing and interrogating opponents of the Iranian regime. Arutz Sheva reports as follows on the Islamic legal pronouncements of Imam Yazdi.

"Asked if a confession obtained "by applying psychological, emotional and physical pressure" was "valid and considered credible according to Islam," Mesbah-Yazdi replied: "Getting a confession from any person who is against the Velayat-e Faqih ("Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists", or the regime of Iran's mullahs) is permissible under any condition." The ayatollah gave the identical answer when asked about confessions obtained through drugging the prisoner with opiates or addictive substances.

"Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?" was the follow-up question posed to the Islamic cleric.

Mesbah-Yazdi answered: "The necessary precaution is for the interrogator to perform a ritual washing first and say prayers while raping the prisoner." >>>

False reports damage the credibility of the movement.

by IRANdokht on

There's been enough beating, arrest, torture and killing to resort to stupid propaganda especially from a shady source in Israel. Mr Kashani please tell us why is an Israeli source trying to undermine these human rights abuses? And why do you believe everything that comes from them?


The Israeli outlet gave no source for its story, and it has been known to run less-than-verified claims. So our judgement at EA was “How far away are we staying from this?!” Other sites, however, eagerly ran the piece, and it is now enshrined on Wikipedia.
The story is false. Chris Emery did some more digging and found that it had been posted at Balatarin (a portal like Digg and Newsvine for Internet articles) three weeks ago in the “Fun/Entertainment” section. The original story has now been pulled, because so many people mistook it for reality, but a quick read of the Balatarin version (even with the shaky English offered by Google Translate) makes clear that this was a bit of very black comedy gone very badly wrong.




HOWEVER, it is no secret

by vildemose on

HOWEVER, it is no secret that the sleeze bag known as Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is a known and confirmed sexual predator with homosexual tendancies! As early as the early 1980's his wife had sent written complaints to the Shiite Ayatollahs in Ghom that he (Mesbah) was betraying his wife and messing with young men, etc!!!

Can you provide a source for your statement above?

If this is true then it explains Ahmadinejad's Holou comment too....

Nice to see you around. I though you left us here after they forced everyone to register. I like your new name!

And yes I did live in Israel between the ages of 9-11. You have a good memory!

I have to be clear that I am in agreement with most of Mr. Kashani's feelings and political views regarding IRI and I really don't think he is that pro Israeli. At least not as Pro Israeli as me to be honest. I just want to make it clear that Arutz Sheva is not credible even if Mr. Kashani, who I agree with, used it as a source. We should all try to use credible sources to prove our points. We all know that Yazdi is evil, but using inferior sources and possible outright lies cheapens our arguments even if we disagree politically. I also hope that JJ realizes that these guys are not credible as he is the one who decided to feature this.

Really nice to see you back!

It is no secret that human rights and dignity violations go on in IRI prisons every day! This includes beatings, rapes, insults, fake firing squads, hangings, etc.

But you and I both know that Mesbah Yazdi has never and will never issue a decree to rape someone (although I don't think the sleeze bag is above issuing such orders!!!)

So, in the interest of honesty and credible news relay, let's say that your report/claim about Mesbah authorizing rapes in custody is far fetched! (to say the least!)

HOWEVER, it is no secret that the sleeze bag known as Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is a known and confirmed sexual predator with homosexual tendancies! As early as the early 1980's his wife had sent written complaints to the Shiite Ayatollahs in Ghom that he (Mesbah) was betraying his wife and messing with young men, etc!!!

Go Figure!

To Farhad Kashani

by Benyamin on

it is an interesting piece of information you have provided there but there is a big "but" and that isnot "his brand of Islam" that is Islam. I don`t care what and how you are trying to say this. But we have lost too many valuble young people that everyone of them is worth ten thousands mollahs or more. Lets start realizing that recognizing a "brand of Islam" is a gateway to another "brand of Islam" and that gate is only to hell.

Lets deny it, lets reject it all as political force and recognize it only as a religion where everyone is free however he/she wants to practice it.

Political Islam is forbidden and not premitted anymore!


PS: I know you are trying to be polite or diplomatic, but we have passed a point of no return with Islam. I admire you for putting it up there and thank you. 

American Dream

No objective person could trust the source

by American Dream on

It is great to see that Iranians and Iranianets have written in condemning this article post as being a lie. The source is a lewd Israeli newspaper that is not even believed by the staunchest zionists in Israel. This newspaper, Arutz Sheva is written by Zio-nazis. Since day one of the creation of Israel these individuals have planned the destruction of Iran and all Iranians. As a freedom loving person who loves Iran and Iranians I would never believe such trash journalism. I have a friend who is a Jewish Iranian that never reads this newspaper because it so so anti-Iranian. I don't know why this lie was posted here.


Well said hamshahri (to Artificial Intelligence)

by kharmagas on

Well said hamshahri. Mesbah-e Yazdi is a fscist, and even as a non Muslim Iranian I am ashamed of him and likes of him.

I am proud  to have a Jwish Hamshahi like  you who lived in Israel (if I am not mistaken) ..... and comes forward questioning a post by this character who ironically in regular basis pretends he is a pro Israeli.


Artificial Intelligence

I don't trust the source

by Artificial Intelligence on

Although I think this guy is scum, Arutz Sheva is not reliable. They are known to sensationalize stories in Israel and are not trusted by the Israelis except for a few wacky settlers in the West Bank.

I detest this guy and find the label Temsaah befitting!  However, for the sake of truth, where is the Farsi interview, has the blogger cared to check the source?  I think not!

bebeen, it's not up to me to deny anything.  I don't know for a fact if it's real or not.  Neither do you.  It's not about me killing or raping anyone, is it?  Why are you fishing muddy waters here?  If it's not true, then I discredit it.  But on the chance that it is, my question stands.

oh, and thanks for ruining my ghormeh sabzi!


It's a falsified report

by IRANdokht on

That was a piece of satire that was translated and the published it as news.

I am sure there are a lot of people capable of doing nasty stuff, that's why we don't need to discredit the opposition by spreading junk!

cannt have raped 10 virgins.. Thats a prerogative reserved for Khamenei, AN and Temsah Yazdi.


Che khaber e, let's assume you raped 10 virgins

by Jaleho on

then cut their fingers and made ghormeh sabzi out of it. What's your reaction THEN?

 Do you have NO shame denying this valid report?

I am willing to accept that you and your priest both did such a thing since my neighbor told me so, and said that he saw you with his own eyes.

che khabar e


by che khabar e on

so you are denying this is true? 

Let's just pretend that it IS true.  What is your reaction then?

By your reasoning, do we also conclude that any news coming from Iran about Israel is also untrustworthy because the IRI of course also wishes to destroy Israel?  Just curious, you know?  Because of that old double standard problem we all have.  :-)

American Dream

Arutz Sheva reports???

by American Dream on

Arutz Sheva is printed in Israel.  Since its creation, the state of Israel has stood for destroying Iran and all Iranians.  I would not trust anything coming out of Israel.  Listening to Israeli news about Iran is like reading the auto biography of Adolf Hitler in order to understand the history of Judaism.


Stop with the rumour mongering without checking your sources...


Iranians like to believe anything regardless of how rediculous it might sound... I'm a Mesbah watcher and have been for many years and he has never said such a thing. The guy is an evil anti-democratic bastard but he has never said its okay to rape people.



by capt_ayhab on

Why do you think he is known as Temsah[Crocodile] e Yazdi  ?


P/S Crocodiles are very dangerous to humans. The main danger that
crocodiles pose is not their ability to run after a person but their
ability to strike before the person can react.

che khabar e

no way

by che khabar e on

NO freakin' way is this possible.  And this... THIS is what the apologists are supporting?  Forget naming anyone "apologist".  Is this what ANYONE is supporting?  And could anyone not conclude that somone supporting AN is also supporting this?  I wonder, if there any hope at all?
