    Returniste got a reaction from Noah- in The full text of Grand Ayatollah Montazeri's email   
    I don't reply to you in detail because I have already had these discussions throughout the years. As for you bipolar issue, it has nothing at all to do with IPs; but, I do find it strange that you work as pharmacist and yet do not treat your disorder.
    One thing I do find worthwhile to comment on, however, is regarding the two senior maraje mentioned. They have an immense amount of credibility built up in the hearts of the Shia in general; it is due mainly to their honest reputation and not being seen as servile to an oppressive pseudo-religious state apparatus. At a time, when the regime and Supreme Dictator's credibilities are low, especially in the aftermath of the elections; when, it is more than evident that the regime is headed toward a situation slightly similar to Pakistan, where the military (whatever slogans it may use) dominates the nation and even its industries in many cases; the truely religious and honest maraje are in a position of strength such that any move against them would be akin to breaking a foundational pillar of the regime. In the past, even recently, this was not the case.
    These are the last words I'll waste on you for this thread.

    If politicians who have long served the regime are suddenly 'Zionist puppets' and part of 'velvet revolutions'; if they overnight (or many nights in jail) change their points of view and appear on the state television 'repentant'; it makes honest men wonder.
    Ulama need not 'speak against' the system, but if even a pious man like Ayatollah Dastghayb is insulted for criticizing the fallible leadership of the Supreme Dictator; I at least give credit to those who speak out against ills and injustices.
    Yes, you have turned out to be some kind of weirdo with bipolar symptoms. Strange fellow..
    We do not even need to examine the long and tragic history of ulama and others suffering at the hands of this 'Islamic' Republic. For how many years have we discussed these things? As for Ayatollahs Khorasani and Makarem, the state cannot touch them due to their unique positions; we all know that. This is not any kind of charity, but force of circumstance and a small bit of remaining sanity.

    No I thank God that today many righteous, pious and God-fearing ulama of Iran are publicly standing against Supreme Dictator Khamenei's tyranny and for the peoples' rights. Unfortunately, they cannot even explicitly say such things because even senior ulama and Maraje must fear for their lives, for speaking truth, in this 'Islamic' Republic.

    My point was that you type unfactual nonsense to promote your argument. I never said Sadaat's military dictatorship was correct; it was you actually who brought him up. Howver, Iran today is headed toward a military/ideological dictatorship, as is obvious. The IRGC gain more power by the day and all matters, internally and externally, are seen from the tainted monochromatic prism of military/security interests. Please try to understand what I have said before replying.
    The silent majority are just struggling to survive a terrible economy, which is caused in part by a terrible government. Those who protest many different aspects of the regime and Khamenei's dictatorship and the creeping power of the IRGC are far more than a 'few youths from Northern Tehran'.

    How on Earth does your God-given brain allow you to type such nonsense? I said respect for the will of the people and their rights; Sadaat was a military dictator and that was his government.

    No they will fight and kill each other eventually. Dogs that are bred for violence (Note: I am not saying these people are dogs, although I did use the reference elsewhere, but that's not the intention here) often are unable to control their violent natures and fight each other. Because if the international situation, it will become more and more a regime dominated by 'security interests' and the abuse of citizens based on suspicion and the violation of their rights.
    OR, the wise men in the Guards will take a step back, but I doubt that.
    What I hope is that it truly becomes an Islamic Republic, respecting human dignity and the people's God-given rights; encouraging the essence of the true religion of Islam and people voluntarily practicing Islam. Lastly, I hope they make major leaps in science & technology, industrial production and social & religious sciences.

    You have no business checking his various email accounts and you have done much wrong in looking into what is not yours. This alone has destroyed some of his trust in you. I think if you just leave the issue alone, it will disappear. Regarding the abuse, does he physically strike you? Or is it name-calling or a harsh tone? Anyhow, it's evident that the channels of communication are not very good here, but don't try to force him into discussions. I'm sure that if you become silent, he will talk, and you can calmly discuss the issues.

    You have no idea whatsoever if he did or did not try to contact the relevant officials; it's evident you did not even try to find out because if you did, you would realize that he did speak to various officials regarding it and got nowhere. Just because the just and righteous people (not the politicized) respect him doesn't mean the ...will listen to him. What kind of ridiculous thing is this to say. If you had any idea of the real nature of the criticisms of the maraje regarding this, I hope you would not say these things, EDITED

    Reformist Shiite cleric Ayatollah Yousef Sanei says the Iranian establishment is trying to divert people's attention from the "poverty, unemployment and social discord," that plagues the country.
    He urged his audience at the meeting with the members of the Islamic Student Association of University of Fine Arts to remain "alert" to these ploys. He declared that the informed people of the society, especially academics are under pressure due to this policy and they must do their utmost to inform the public about the "issues and problems" at large.
    Iran's socio-political atmosphere has been critical since the tenth presidential elections in June. The re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been contested with mass demonstrations by protesters who claim the elections were rigged and hence deny the legitimacy of Ahmadinejad's consequent government.
    Several moderate Shiite clerics have come out in support of protesters, condemning the government's violent crackdown on people and called for an end to the hostilities against protesters both on the streets and in prisons.
    Ayatollah Sanei has been one of the most vocal supporters of the people. He told the members of the Islamic Student Association of the University of Fine Arts that "Excessive pressure is the sign of the government's weakness. Arrests, imprisonment and torture are signs of weakness."
    He added that post-election detainees are "barred from outside visitors" and are kept in "solitary confinement" and these are all evidence of torture in the prisons of the Islamic Republic.
    Ayatollah Sanei condemned the government's propensity to "lie" about the situation and in conclusion called on people to continue their struggle against oppression. He maintained: "If we retreat, oppression will only increase."
    In the post-election unrest so far tens have been killed and thousands have been arrested. Many of these detainees remain behind bars. A number of them have gotten death and imprisonment sentences.
    The establishment denies the number of dead and also claims that most of those who died were actually from the government security forces. They also deny there has been any systematic torture of detainees in prisons.
