    Khamene-i, the spiritual leader of Iran has a lot of power, but not as much as most people think. His decisions are governed by the "assembly of experts of leadership" who is heavily influenced by Larijani brothers. Please also remember Iranian government has three mail branches, the Legislative branch led mainly by Ali Larijani, the Judicial system led by Sadeq Larijani, his brother, and the executive branch led by the president, currently Hassan Rohani. Please note the lower case letter I used for the executive branch, since the executive branch by itself, has no power more than the two combined Legislative and Judicial branches led by antisemitic, anti-reform Larijani brothers. Khamene-i helped these brothers in the beginning but has regrets to see they have more power than himself at this point. I want every one to know that Ahmadinejad is not antisemitic. He would not kill a single Jew. Ahmadinejad has to use anti-Israel remarks to protect himself, even his life. For people who have not lived in the oppressive mafia atmosphere of Iran, it is not easy to grasp. Ahmadinejad's life is in danger even though he has pretended to be anti west and anti Israel, but those remarks are just playing the game with flow. I wish there was a way to give Rowhani more power, even Khamenei against these Mafia brothers Larijanis who want to support Hizbollah, Assad, and are puppets of Putin in Russia. In short, the president is not the one we should focus on. We should work on destroying the Larijani brothers, who really control the politics.
