Obeying Ahmadinejad like obeying God: Iran cleric

TEHERAN – A hard-line cleric considered to be the mentor of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on Iranians on Wednesday to follow the newly-re-elected president, saying that obeying him was akin to obeying God.

Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi also warned the country’s opposition groups against undermining supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has been the country’s spiritual guide for 20 years.

‘When the president is endorsed by the leader, obeying him is similar to obedience to God,’ Mesbah Yazdi was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.
