Number One Islamic Criminal in Iran, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, also known as Akbar Shah!


Perhaps one of the most “influential” figures of the Islamic regime in Iran is no one but the famous Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, or the Shark. He is the man of all times, and all moments. The man has been named one of the most "influential Iranian politicians of the Islamic regime,” and is currently serving as the “chairman of the Expediency Discernment Council of Iran.” Can you even try to picture a council in which this Shark would have a seat? And can you form a council as “the Expediency Discernment Council,” and let it have any kind of power over the fate of a nation?
He is almost one of the richest people in the world, according to Forbes, and holds power over certain matters, and stays behind the Iranian government. Some people even believe that he is the one who has been “running the Islamic Republic for the past 24 years." Who knows? Every thing is possible, you know!

As the chairman of the Council, he is to resolve differences or conflicts between Majlis and the Council of Guardians. In addition, he also serves as a consultative council to the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei. Basically, he is every one’s favorite guy, or he is the Man.
The Western World should be cautious about making a deal with him; he knows how to make deals since he has been doing it with the Russians, the Chinese, a few European Lords, and a few good old Canadian boys. The Western World should be very careful when they want to bring him onto the poker table. He is a player, knows the rules and has been around for almost five decades.
Rafsanjani is a figure whose presence in the political stage in Iran is of a consequential essence. He is the snake in the charmer’s bag, and we should pay attention to his movements, for when he sizes a moment, he will bite you so hard, that you will die no matter how hard you try to survive.
Some people are talking about his "Come Back" as a figure whose importance in the regime has convinced the Americans to talk with him and see how they can help the Reformers and establish a new regime in Iran. Some say that he will be used by the European allies when the time comes. But there are other Iranians who wish to see him behind Bars.
PS: Please do forgive my bold approach in making you look at the horrible face of Rafsanjani, but it was necessary to have his ugly picture for the purpose of this short note.
