Following are excerpts from a video showing students criticizing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani's speech at Shiraz University. The video was posted on the Internet on December 5, 2008.

Student: Today, I have no questions for you, as the speaker of the Islamic Parliament of Iran, because of the disqualification of many [candidates] before the parliamentary elections, and because of the many cases of fraud in the elections process, as acknowledged by MP Dr. 'Imad Afrugh... I don't recognize you as the speaker of the Islamic Parliament of Iran. This is an illegal parliament. You are the speaker of an illegal parliament.

Cheers from the audience

Student: I would like to voice my complaint in the following manner. I am nauseated by three things: One – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I am nauseated by his support of Hugo Chavez. I am nauseated by the fact that he is a demagogue. I am nauseated by the "aura" around him. Finally, I am nauseated by him because I can't stand his face.

Crowd: Ahmadinejad, Ahmadinejad, we support you.

Student: Okay, this part is over.

Crowd: Ahmadinejad, Ahmadinejad, we support you. Death to hypocrites.
