A catalogue of the private opulence and eccentric tastes of 70-year-old Ayatollah Khamenei and his family has been compiled by Iran's opposition Green Movement from the accounts of the defector, who is said to be in hiding in France.

Among his claims are that Ayatollah Khamenei has a voracious appetite for trout and caviar; is an avid hoarder of collectables from bejewelled pipes to fine horses; and that he suffers regular bouts of depression which are treated in part by audiences with a mid-ranking mullah who tells vulgar jokes.

Claims from three intelligence officials, who have also fled Iran, have additionally documented the Khamenei family's wide-reaching business connections, including interests in European manufacturers, African mobile phone companies and international commodities markets.

But the glimpse at the imperial lifestyle of an otherwise austere theologan is groundbreaking. Ayatollah Khamenei is said to be a keen collector with a prized assembly of antique walking sticks said to number 170. The Supreme Leader was once a fanatical equestrian enthusiast and his extensive stables reportedly include more than 100 of the country's leading horses. His cloaks are said to be woven from hair of specially bred camels.

Ayatollah Khamenei is claimed to have accumulated a sprawling private court that stretches across six palaces, including Naviran, the former resident of the Shah in Tehran. Two of the palaces - Naviran and Valikabad - are eq... >>>

I promise you if you eat rat dropping you'll have amnesia

by Multiple Personality Disorder on

The science on that is very clear, if you live in close quarters with rats, so much so that their droppings are all over the place, so much that you might accidentally or intentionally eat their droppings, for sure you'd have amnesia.

Also, I didn't know this but now it is quite clear, at least once a night I get up in the middle of the night and I peepee in the toilet bow, which contains a small amount of still water, afterwards I can't go back to sleep for at least an hour.  Imagine if I was out in the middle of desert and I'd pee in a still pool of water, I'd be up all night.

Mohammad says to Ali: 9 things that cause amnesia

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

there is a great video on youtube. it's about the 9 things that Mohammad reveals to Ali which amnesia according to Islam.It was broadcast in the 21st century in Iran, the home of science and reason. It makes me so sad. Anyway one of these things is eating rat droppings and another is peeing in still water. I will never understand why anyone likes Islam or any religion for that matter. I'm so glad this is all getting out. 

maybe khamenei did one of these 9 stupid things and he has forgotten how bad shah was and that he has become the same man.....he better hope for swift death too. 


1400 years of pentup pettiness

by mahmoudg on

This is the gift of Islam to us people.  1400 years of Mullahs being nobodys.  Never in our history had we ever trusted them.  They had to hijack a revolution, which was a mistake from inception.  Now we finally realize that Mullahs are the ills of this country if not the world.  Getting rid of the IRI is only the fist step in cleansing Iran of Islam and its backward Arab mentality.  The day we can claim Muhamad and his clan defects and muderers is the day we have acheived freedom.

They are all Thieves

by farokh2000 on

These criminal Mullahs are all Thieves, everyone of them.

They are ten times worse than the Shah was, and he was bad.

I hope people wake up, kick them out and try them for every crime they have committed.
