    Dr. Bar'el: Another outstanding analysis of Iranian politics. You mentioned toward the end of your article about Ahmadinejad's dislike toward clergies. This, i believe, stems from his dismissal by then President Khatami from the post Ahmadinejad was holding as you also mentioned in the article. HE build up such resentment toward the mullahs that it did not matter if Khatami was a reformist or not. He took things personal and worked against Khatami who was at the time really starting to alienate the Leader of revolution in the eyes of people and that was a NO NO. Then he travels to Venezuela and other foreign countries that he has never been in his life and got open minded and tried to apply his open mindedness to the current establishment and that was a NO NO! He certainly did not understand diplomacy until the very end which is too late. He will be lucky not to be prosecuted and jailed after this election as Khamenei truly dislike this dude.
