Die oppostitionelle iranische Website Rooz Online berichtet von der Fatwa eines Ajatollahs, der Ahmadinedschad nahesteht und offenbar vorab das theologische OK zur Wahlmanipulation gegeben hat:
The letter, which has been signed by a number of Ministry of Interior employees, reveals the existence of a „religious decree to manipulate the results“ of the election. Revealing the behind-the-scenes efforts of certain government officials to manipulate the results, the letter reveals, „After the rapid decrease in the number of votes of one of the candidate (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) in late April, one of the Qom Seminary School professors, who also heads a research institute there and previously spoke at the Tehran Friday prayers, called for ‚changing the votes‘ in a secret meeting, quoting a line from the Qoran, and adding, ‚If someone is elected president whereby Islamic principles that are currently on the rise in Lebanon, Palestine, Venezuela and other parts of the world, start diminishing, it is Haraam [forbidden by Islam] to vote for that person. We shouldn’t vote for that person and we should inform the people not to vote for him either, or else. For you, as administrators of the election, everything is permitted to this end.“
Der Bericht ist bereits vor der Bekanntgabe des offiziellen Wahlergebnisses erschienen.
Eine schöne Religion, die so viel Flexibiltät kennt.
