Terminally ill?

Yet another Wikileaks document discloses that Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khameni is terminally ill with leukemia.
US diplomatic cables released by online whistle-blower Wikileaks include remarks from a source in 2009 saying that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has terminal cancer, French daily Le Monde reported.

The source, a non-Iranian businessman based in Central Asia and travelling often to Tehran, "has learned from one of his contacts that (former president Ali Akbar) Rafsanjani told him Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has terminal stage leukemia and could die in a few months", according to an August 2009 cable. The document says that Rafsanjani, a critic of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has expressed sympathies with Iran's reformist movement, decided on learning of Khamenei's illness to start preparing himself to be a successor.
Here in Israel we're looking forward to the establishment of a new holiday. Heh.
