Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani will lead Friday’s Prayer in Tehran on 17 July. Rafsanjani was scheduled to be the Friday Imam for this week prior to the 12 June presidential election and the nationwide protests that followed. He has harshly criticized Ahmadinejad and is generally believed to side with Mousavi. His speech this Friday will be closely watched by Iran analysts as a window to understanding the current power struggle within the Islamic Republic.
