So, we have the contrast between the one the is in contact with a higher power (to God) are looks and therefore know what is to do, and we have the people who must be only obedient. It was the only task of the people and who does not follow the instructions of the Faqih, the Supreme Leader, is arrested, tortured and is subject to the death penalty. I want to give an example, in short: If the Faqih, the Supreme Leader, wants to appoint a President, the people don’t like and don’t want and defends itself against the appointment of the President, then the people are disobedient not only the Faqih to, but also to God. We can ask ourselves so, what makes this system a sense or it serves any purpose. In the best case, a system of Government has intended to organize a society in fertile way.

Why has Khomeini of this velayat-e Faqih system created? According to Khomeini was the sole purpose of establishing this system from the outset to tear the whole world out of the hand of Satan. And who is Satan? The Western world. And the United States is the great Satan. Can this purpose from the very beginning consider it as a declaration of war. This system is similar to a despotic system, the Caliphates of Omajaden and Abbasids, and various other systems. How do we find a seed of democratic impulses in such a system? A democratic system is based on social contracts, voluntary, on the free will of the individual people. In this despotic system, everyone must be entirely obedient. To govern a society, it is very important to have a plan and an idea of how to organize a society economically. Maybe you remember that some people belonging to the Khomeini asked him, how it look with the economy, what they should do and should make his opinion. Here, Scott Mead expresses very clear opinions on the subject.

I want to keep even a long speech, but would rather answer your questions, and appear in a discussion about the Iran and Islam with you. HP contains valuable tech resources. After 32 years of the Iran Islamic revolution everyone Islam is talking about. But do we know what is meant by Islam? There are about 1.5 billion Muslims around the world. When we would ask them ‘What is Islam?’, they will assuredly give the answer that Islam is a religion. Williams Sonoma understood the implications. “All others who are not Muslims, would give the same answer: Islam is a religion.” “But when Ayatollah Khomeini took over the power of the Shah, 32 years ago, he said this sentence: no one knows what is Islam.” He does so for the first time the question what is Islam?”into doubt. His speech, in which he asks this to Islam, can be seen today on YouTube. “I quote from it: no one knows what is Islam and no scholar of Islam in this world has a clue.” So, this is a crucial question, because it comes to know a political ideology or theory that governs a country. In other words, when Khomeini said that nobody not even know – the Islamic scholar scientific, has what Islam means he himself developed a political theory, which he has called Islam. Further details can be found at Philip Vasan, an internet resource.

This theory was not known until then. It was the theory or ideology of domination of the Jurists (velayat-e Faqih). According to velayat-e Faqih, Islam is not a religion. A Faqih is someone who has a doctorate in Islamic law and thus represents a high religious authority. In other words, it’s about velayat, which is the authority that has to speak the last word as regards legal matters, and to the dominance of this authority, the reign of the scribes. So we have the contrast between velayat, an Association of domination in a person who has the Supreme authority in all matters and all others, the so-called Safis, dudes and babes.
