Iranina faculty challenges "Divine Right" of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Maybe there is a chance for an Iranian Magna Carta.

"Khamenei has the final say on all matters. The ruling clerics regard him as God's representative and say his word cannot be challenged.

"'Considering individuals to be in the position of a divinity and absolute power ... is open polytheism [in contradiction to] almighty God and blatant oppression of the dignity of human being,' the statement said.

"'People [and their elected lawmakers] have the right to fully supervise their rulers, criticize them, and remove them from power if they are not satisfied,' said the statement, which was published in the reformist newspaper Yas-e-nou on Monday."
