Grand Ayatollah speaks his mind 

Iranian Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, one of the leaders of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and one-time successor of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, recently gave an interview to an Italian newspaper, and MEMRI has a translation. He's critical of everyone from the Guardian Council to Ayatollah Khameini to President Khatami, and of everything from press censorship to the repression of students. Small wonder he's under close watch after a long period of house arrest.
