I wake up every morning praying for a slow news day so I can do my laundry, but it is not to be, apparently.
Arab TV has announced that Khameini has requested Ahmadinejad’s resignation. This has not yet been confirmed by Western media. Confirmed, however, is the arrest of his allies on suspicion of sorcery. Yes, sorcery:
Close allies of Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have been accused of using supernatural powers to further his policies amid an increasingly bitter power struggle between him and the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Several people said to be close to the president and his chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, have been arrested in recent days and charged with being “magicians” and invoking djinns (spirits).
Ayandeh, an Iranian news website, described one of the arrested men, Abbas Ghaffari, as “a man with special skills in metaphysics and connections with the unknown worlds.”
So much for the laundry.
