Rafsanjani is out as the prayer leader for Friday. Still no comment from him directly, but he has already call on people (albeit subtly) to pour out in the streets come Quds day. As speculated yesterday, Ahmad Khatami (no relation to the former reformist president) will now be leading the prayer, with Ahmadinejad making opening statements. Rather provocative of the regime.
And further, again to bring focus on the increasingly un-Islamic actions of the Islamic Republic, Pedestrian notes how it would technically be haram (religiously forbidden) to pray behind Khatami, as the prayer leader has to have earned certain credentials to lead a holy sermon, none of which Khatami has.
