They thought Khomeini would open the door to paradise for them, and we see that he opened the door to hell.
He was also Time's “Man of the Year”—the only other Iranian ever was Khomeini.
We took the underground from Navvab Station to Imam Khomeini Station.
Well, I remember what my son said many years ago: “If Khomeini came with tapes, Khomeini then will disappear with the Internet.”
After the truce in 1988, Khomeini issued a secret fatwa ordering that all MEK supporters in Iranian prisons should be killed.
This is not in history books, but Hussein told me that was why he went to war, because Khomeini broke the deal.
The figure of 150 or 200 million was once stated by the Imam [Khomeini] and that is the correct figure that we should reach.
This became increasingly clear to Khomeini himself after the success of the revolution.
They stood on street corners handing out free cassette tapes of Imam Khomeini.
Khomeini came to power on the crest of a wave of unprecedented popular support and he supplanted a cruel and corrupt dictator.
