Iran's Conservative Faction Fears RadicalismTopics: Iran
Nine months after the election of chief nut case and unabashed motor mouth Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president, Iranian politics have shifted so sharply and so far to the right that some traditional conservatives are warning of the dangers of radicalism. Reformists have, for the most part, been sidelined and Ahmadinejad is sounding a new tone on the world stage while figures from the extreme right of Iran's political spectrum are defining the terms of political debate in the country.
And then there's those remarks from a senior cleric close to the new president suggesting in January that Iranian voters were largely irrelevant because the government requires only the approval of God. With that and much more, are Iranians begining to believe that the Shia Talibans of Iran and the government that they control a little too far "out there"?
