What Iranian political and religoius leaders don't want to know

One of the annoying features of Iranian political rhetoric is the notion that Arabs wish to emulate the Iranian political system.  It is high time that Iranian leaders disabuse themselves of this silly notion. Let them know that there are no takers for their model in the Arab world. Not even the mass audience of Hizbullah wish to emulate that model.  Hizbullah foolishly tried to apply some of the features of Iranian model in predominantly Shi`ite areas of Lebanon back in the 1980s, and the attempt failed miserably.
