Must we forgive this murdering gasbag Ayatollah? Suppose at the Last Judgement, Khameini enters the presence of Allah in fear and trembling, the way a cockroach enters a housewife's bowl of flour? Will those he axed on the streets of Tehran, those entire families, bear witness for him? Will Gabriel's trumpet thunder for Neda Agha Soltan to stand forth and say a kind word for this hairy tarantula? As C. S. Lewis noted in The Great Divorce, it might just be a question of scale.
