In this video, Ahmadinejad promises his mentor and spiritual adviser "a great shake on the planet". The video has been recorded in a secret meeting between several hardliners and the only one that speaks is Ahmadinejad.
In his Facebook page French philosopher and writer Bernard-Henri Lévy has a video, which was clandestinely shot and brought out of Iran, showing “president-non-elect” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—as Lévy himselfcalls the Iranian despot—while announcing to his most loyal followers and in the presence of his mentor and spiritual adviser, ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi, “un grand bouleversement sur la planète” (a great bouleversement on the planet). The speech was delivered on June 13, 2009. This is what BHL himself says about the video (in French):
This video is quite extraordinary. Filmed without the knowledge of the subjects, secretly removed from Iran, it shows , in Qom [an Iranian city southwest of Tehran], accompanied by his mentor, the Mesbah Yazdi, as well as a group of students and faithful.
The video was taken out of Iran over the Internet. It is dated June 13, 2009, the day after the alleged victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (the date tends to be corroborated by the repeated expressions of gratitude for the announced goal of "radical Islamization"). It is not known who captured these images, then chose to disseminate them, but it appears to have been done by a member of the same group, perhaps by a cell phone.
This is a private meeting of a small committee whose matters do not visibly address themselves to the masses, but do address the initiated, sometimes in coded language. You see the "President Non-Elect" thank his mentor and guests for their support and services rendered (for what?). He assures them that, thanks to their aid, the "great victory" (for what?) is near. The whole thing is in a tone and terminology of which the messianic tenor is particularly obvious. Watch it.

Translation (thanks to Stogie):
I thank the Almighty for allowing me to be here in the dear city of Qom and at the mausoleum of Saint Massoumeh, whom God blesses, and in your saintly presence in the company of the other friends here, but also for the opportunity to tell you what is essential.
You have rightly stated that the Islamic revolution cannot be reduced to a particular place or time, and if our efforts are placed in the service of God and the orbit of creation they will endure and we will realize all of our dreams and hopes.
The fight against vice and for justice is a source of joy, but the real joy will come on the day that our true prayer is answered. All of us must strive for the fulfillment of this essential prayer.
I think the revolution is finding its way. A new upheaval has begun. A period of hard work is coming to an end but a more difficult period is beginning. A period of hard work is ending and I hope this new and difficult stage will finally lead us to what we have been waiting for. A lot of energy, both inside and outside of the country, is rapidly being generated.The opportunity to realize all that we said and wanted is within reach today. This movement just needs a strong theoretical support and strong practical support. And the best place, initially to support our movement is precisely here in Qom, in the midst of these dear ones who live, breathe and study for the realization of an Islamic government. They have dedicated their lives to the realization of an Islamic government.
I think that right now the conditions are favorable, and I myself seek your help and am at your service as an individual whom, perhaps, has no importance in this movement.
The key is a movement, a huge movement. This is a movement, as you pointed out, which is itself a blessing requiring special care. God willing, these are the beginnings of a major upheaval on the planet.
As an individual who is a simple intermediary in this struggle but on whose shoulders weighs responsibility, I seek your help. We must mobilize all aspiring intellectuals and executives behind this movement for the realization of Islamic law, of Islamic justice and the establishment of a model Islamic society in our beloved homeland of .
It seems to me that this is possible; had it not been possible, we would not undertake this task. It is understood and expected that over there (in Teheran}, the organization is ready. And here too, if your honor and friends come together to form a responsible group to engage in the struggle, using all those who are willing; and also at the university, the same task is proposed. We can then move towards the operational embodiment of our points of view, and spread the Islamic culture.
You know better than I, the luminous phrase of his holiness the Imam Khomeini is a reality, is a truth, that today the world is thirsty for the pure Islamic culture. We have seen a few examples of this, all the young and their hopes and prayers, these young people from whom absolutely nothing is expected; they are all thirsty for that.
I see these things because I was in Tehran, but I also saw that certain individuals who do not take the long view may believe that others are unenlightened. However, when you meet them closely, you can see that this isn’t true. Their devotion is real.
If we present it as it should, everyone will come. By everyone I mean the vast majority of the people.
The people as a whole are not wicked. But there is less light in those with pretentions of scholarliness; and if there is any light, it is frankly unattractive.
The background of the people is good. They are devoted.
Last year we had a discussion with a great religious leader whom you all know. The discussion focused on how to respond to young people in the streets. I had an appointment and I wanted to have his opinion on an action I intended to conduct; he asked what I thought of it myself.
I told him that this is a futile undertaking. We have nothing to give these youth. They have never had a pure spirit. Many have not heard words like these in their own family.
At school or in the media they did not hear anything to help them understand the subject. But everywhere now a pure spirit is poured out on the people – in the Islamic Republic. The community has been at least educated for that. They have responded positively.
The people want to attain this pure Islamic culture and I believe the time is most favorable to spread the word far and wide, and for this I am at your service.
Let us hope that an organization will follow, while utilizing all of those who aspire to service. We have little time.
I expressed a critical interpretation of the movement's creation and on two or three occasions my interpretation was proven correct. I spoke with one of our great teachers, he agreed with me. In general, those who only see the face of an event believe that all parameters should be ready beforehand.
Remember after the victory of the revolution, some said it was premature. We did not have a good organization. We did not have the necessary armed forces. We had no plans. Those are limitations for men who can only count on themselves. Common logic does not apply to movements based on the divine will anddivine mercy.
When the human being reaches the threshold of this potential, he can bear the weight and the movement follows. Our revolution was that way. The Imam "said the reason that led to the revolution must also be preserved.”
The potential is there. I hope that what we believe and the change that we believe in will come as soon as possible. The potential is offered by God, and I am at your service.
Just as God protects us, the rest will come from far and wide and with spirituality.
For myself, as a Muslim Iranian, I benefited enormously from this wave of spirituality in our country that your holiness has accorded me, coming directly on the scene of events and directing them.
I thank thepresent here, these dear men who act only for God and who lead this movement of truth. I know how much they have had to personally pay in Qom and elsewhere, I know that they have had to borrow money, that they have dedicated their lives to this service.
For those who have borne other difficulties, I thank you even though the one who thanks you more is God.Today is the most joyous of days for believers, and for our dear supreme guide. Forgive me, for this is all that I can do.
This mental midget has a very smooth demeanor, extraordinarily calm and secure in his belief - he appears hypnotized by his own fanaticism. Ahmadinijad appears to be mentally, emotionally, & physically prepared to die for his cause and, without reservation, he is (we suspect) willing & able to take us all with him.
Sadly, our bleeding heart, soft diplomacy POTUS & the weak kneed EU as well as the incompetent UN are not prepared to grant the mental midget his personal death wish to spare the masses.
It is clear Ahmadinijad has influence over at least two groups. First, the power hungry group, the shia mullahs - who successfully groomed this maniac mental midget into his devout hypnotic stupor - striving to emulate their 'prophet' for personal profit, gain and glory. Second, the group of ignorant but devout masses. With nuclear technology at their disposal, this presents an extraordinarily alarming and explosive combination.
