Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a man who has been one of the most powerful men in Iran in the last couple of years and gave the West headaches through his fiery rhetoric about Israel and the development of the Iran’s nuclear program, has returned to his original profession, teaching.

After the expiry of his second term he decided to withdraw from political life and start working again as a professor and teach at the University of Science and Technology.

A situation where the highest state official and a man who wielded enormous power subsequently returns to his  humble position as a university professor job is hard to imagine.

However, the former Iranian president now takes the a bus to work every day and, judging by the photo, looks content.


  1. The author clearly has no idea about Iranian politics. The Iranian president has almost no power, all the power is in the hands of the “Supreme leader of Iran” / “Guardian Jurist of Iran” / “Leader of the Revolution”, which is always a cleric and always elected by a group of clerics.


  2. I thought this was great. However, I wonder what language he will teach in. I am /guessing/ English, but perhaps there’s some detail I’m ignorant of? E.g. does Ahmadinejad know a little Serbian?

  3. Who needs a bunch of stuff on the desk when you’ve got a brain and a heart and experience? What good is a bunch of papers, if they’re full of lies and propaganda? Jesus Christ didn’t have a desk full of papers, but He taught folks. Ghandi didn’t have a desk full of papers, but he taught some too…This is a man someone could learn from if they’d listen. The real Godly Jewish folks Love him. Why don’t the ‘chosen children of Santa Claus’?
