Only days after bin Laden took one in the eye, Islamists are taking it upon themselves to poke each other in the eye, with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei poking another crazy Islamist in the eye — this time his own President and Kook-in-Chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Reports have emerged from Iran that Ahmadinejad and many members of his inner circle have become too crazy for Khamenei, with many of Ahmadinejad's top aides being arrested over charges of sorcery and invoking spirits (djinns). This comes after other reports of disobedience of Ahmadinejad who protested harshly the reinstatement by Khamenei of an intelligence chief he fired weeks prior.
Crossing Khamenei, apparently, is not kosher in Iran:
Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, a hardline cleric close to Khamenei, warned that disobeying the supreme leader – who has the ultimate power in Iran – is equivalent to "apostasy from God".
Recall the documentary we reported on back in March that scared us to death? That same documentary was apparently too crazy and not fundamentalist enough (is that possible?) for Khamenei's liking. From the same Guardian article:
But the feud has taken a metaphysical turn following the release of an Iranian documentary alleging the imminent return of the Hidden Imam Mahdi – the revered saviour of Shia Islam, whose reappearance is anticipated by believers in a manner comparable to that with which Christian fundamentalists anticipate the second coming of Jesus.
Conservative clerics, who say that the Mahdi's return cannot be predicted, have accused a "deviant current" within the president's inner circle, including Mashaei, of being responsible for the film.
When hardline Islamists who stone women to death for being raped can't agree on what constitutes crazy, you know things are not well in the netherworld of Crazy Caliphate City.
Crazy is in the eye of the beholder, and with bin Laden missing his, Islamists' schizophrenic compass of crazy is out of wack, leaving them confused as to which direction to pray.
