The spiritual leader of the Front of Islamic Revolution Stability, Ayatollah Mohammed-Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi (not to be confused with Iranian cleric Mohammed Yazdi, who died a few weeks ago) has died aged 85. Yazdi supported suppression of the reform movement and was a backer of hardliner Ahmadinejhad. He was seen as a potential successor to Khamenei but has predeceased him. He was a unique pick by The Living End, are they planning to roll back the clock to better days after a few less good DDP runs by their incredible standards?
Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi
31 January 1935 – 1 January 2021
