YouTube Kills Ahmadinejad’s Presidency

by | 8th, June 2009

gays-iranIT won’t be the  Holocaust denial nor the jingoism that kills of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s presidency of Iran. It will be the Iranian economy. And a video on YouTube.

In the clip, sent out e-mail and on CDs, Ahmadinejad tells a top cleric, Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi Amoli, that a “light” enveloped him during his address to the U.N. General Assembly and that the crowd stared without blinking during the entire speech.

“A member of the (Iranian) delegation told me, ‘I saw a light that surrounded you,'” Ahmadinejad said. “I sensed it myself too … I felt the atmosphere changed. All leaders in audience didn’t blink for 27, 28 minutes. I’m not exaggerating when I’m saying they didn’t blink. Everybody had been astonished … they had opened their eyes and ears to see what is the message from the Islamic Republic.”

And the economy, stupid:

On Saturday, Ahmadinejad said inflation stood at 15 percent, but Mousavi showed a report released by the Central Bank of Iran indicating it stood at 25 percent.

“Why do we lie to people? Why do we give people wrong information? Is this to the country’s benefit? Is gaining the presidential chair worth lying to people this blatantly?” Mousavi said on Sunday.

And this:

Intrade has suddenly down-graded its assessment of Ahmadinejad’s electoral chances. And the NYT piece this morning was encouraging:

Rallies for Mr. Moussavi have drawn tens of thousands of people in recent days, and a new unofficial poll suggests his support has markedly increased, with 54 percent of respondents saying they would vote for him compared with 39 percent for Mr. Ahmadinejad.

In years from now they will say Ahmadinejad was president – but the deniers will not believe something so awful could have happened…
