  DEBKAfile - DEBKAfile Exclusive: Iran’s supreme rule Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, 68, appeared on state TV Monday looking ...
Khamenei’s illness had been kept a close secret in Tehran for fear of an outbreak of factional hostilities.
The elections held last month for the Council of Experts, which is competent to choose the supreme ruler, was not accepted by the radical political and military camps, especially president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his backers, the Revolutionary Guards.
The Islamic Republic appears therefore to face a period of confrontation and instability in the interim period between Khamenei’s rule and the succession - up to and including a violent coup d’etat by the RGs – with critical effect on the national nuclear program, depending on which camp prevails.

 Iran's Khamenei Says Bush Talks Like Hitler
Khamenei, the most powerful man in Iran, has been opposed to any rapprochement with Washington, which in turn has branded Iran part of an "axis of evil" for allegedly pursuing weapons of mass destruction, backing terrorism and sheltering fleeing al-Qaeda fighters.
Khamenei is both Iran's spiritual leader and the final authority on matters of state.
Khamenei's defiant words appeared to offer no hope of an improvement in relations between Tehran and Washington, which have been enemies ever since radical students stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 and held dozens of diplomats hostage for 444 days.

 CNN.com - Revolutionary journey
But while Khamenei is said to be opposed to much of this liberalization, some analysts believe that he is also a man who may be politically savvy enough to read the signs of the times, which clearly indicate that much of the Iranian population is fed up with rising prices and high unemployment.
Khamenei may therefore realize, some say, that it is in his and the influential clergy's interest to allow a controlled, gradual economic and political liberalization, rather than risk a social explosion.
Khamenei lacks Khomeini's charisma and learning, and his legitimacy has been challenged both by veteran Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri, who was sacked as Khomeini's anointed successor after he criticized human rights abuses, and by dissident philosopher Abdolkarim Soroush, who advocates separating mosque and state.

Led by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the nation's "supreme leader," Iranian clerics have repeatedly declared that Islam forbids the development and use of all weapons of mass destruction.
But other analysts, diplomats and Iranian clerics say that the unexpectedly strong pronouncements from Khamenei and others have produced a strong domestic consensus on the issue that would be hard for the ruling religious establishment to reverse.
Diplomats said later that although Rowhani was a tough negotiator, he made a major contribution to the pact by publicly repeating that Khamenei opposednuclear weapons and supported signing the pact.
