With its current members elected directly by the Iranian people in mid-December 1996, the AoE which elects the supreme leader, has the power to assess his performance in two bi-annual meetings, and theoretically can have him replaced if he is proven to have violated basic WuF rules.
By far the most revered theologian of the quietist school is Grand Ayatullah Ali al-Sistani who is based in Najaf (southern Iraq) and is strongly opposed to the WuF concept.
Iran's theocracy, based on the application of WuF as applied by its current Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, is this summer to introduce what it calls "Halal (permitted) Internet" and ban the use of "Haram (forbidden) Internet" in all of Iran.
Khamenei's version of the WuF concept now is being strongly opposed by most of the Iranian people as well as most of the Iraqi people and the Shi'ites of Lebanon and other Arab countries.
The core of the dispute, however, comes down to the WuF concept and Iran's position.
Iran's theocracy, based on the application of WuF as perceived by its current Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, is this summer to introduce what it calls "Halal (permitted) Internet" and ban the use of "Haram (forbidden) Internet" in all of Iran.
The conflict between Qom and Tehran could be quite serious and, as Mohsen Reza'ie has warned, the whole idea of the WuF will be undermined unless Khamenei makes peace with his Qom-based opponents.
Khamenei has a potentially explosive power struggle with President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, with the latter questioning WuF's legitimacy more frequently than ever before (see news23IrnWuF-FateJun6-11).
This is because it is in contrast to the WuF concept of rule in Iran.
Ahmadi-Nejad is said to be constantly questioning the legitimacy of the Wilayat ul-Faqih (WuF) concept of rule in Iran - which most Ja'fari Shi'ites in the world regard as a "theological aberration" (see news23IrnWuF-FateJun6-11).
The problem for both Maleki and Sadr, however, is that Tehran's theocracy militarised by the IRGC is being described in Iran's holy city of Qom as an "atheist dictatorship" having turned the late Imam Khomeini's Wilayat ul-Faqih (WuF) into a "concept for a republic of fear", as the Khomeinist opposition has been silenced by the regime.
"The Shark" and "The Crocodile" are the names of two powerful men in Iran now engaged in a latent war which will decide the fate of WuF. The real names of these two men will be revealed later on in this section.
