London, Oct. 25 - An Iranian opposition satellite channel, based
abroad, has produced a new comedy clip mocking Iran's Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The comedy skit, produced by Simay-e Azadi (www.iranntv.com),
was aired into Iran to coincide with a key visit by Khamenei to the
holy city of Qom, south of Tehran, to win the support of high-ranking
clerics for the hard-line government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Khamenei has increasingly come under fire from senior members of the
religious theocracy for giving unwavering support to Ahmadinejad despite
his government's confrontational international policies, including over
the nuclear program, which have led to UN Security Council sanctions.
Simay-e Azadi, which has produced a series of similar comic skits, reportedly has a wide following in Iran.
