The hardline Iranian regime has arrested several people accused of ripping up photos of the Islamic Republic leader Ayatollah Khomeini, promising “no mercy” will be shown these alleged desecrators of the popular “spiritual” leader. It’s hard to believe that Iranians still have any sort of positive feelings towards such an angry, hateful person whose bigoted and tyrannical perspective of reality has brought such atrocity and grief to so many over the past 30 years. In addition to establishing a cultic tyranny that virtually enslaves women, Khomeini is quoted as saying the following very enlightened remarks:
“War is a blessing for the world and for all nations. It is God who incites men to fight and to kill. The Koran says, ‘Fight until all corruption and all rebellion have ceased.’ The wars the Prophet led against the infidels were a blessing for all humanity. Imagine that we soon will win the war. That will not be enough, for corruption and resistance to Islam will still exist. The Koran says, ‘War, war until victory!…’ The mullahs with corrupt hearts who say that all this is contrary to the teachings of the Koran are unworthy of Islam. Thanks to God, our young people are now, to the limits of their means, putting God’s commandments into action. They know that to kill the unbelievers is one of man’s greatest missions.” (James Haught, Holy Horrors)
There’s the great hero of the Islamic Republic over whose image people are now being arrested – and will likely be tortured if not murdered. Tearing up images of such a vile character is highly understandable.
Iranian authorities have arrested several people accused of destroying photos of the Islamic Republic’s revered founder and the current supreme leader at student demonstrations, state media reported Monday.
Tehran’s prosecutor promised to show “no mercy” to those responsible, but the news reports carrying his remarks gave no details on who was arrested….
But the protesters have denied government claims they also tore up a photo of the leader of Iran’s 1979 revolution, the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who remains a widely respected figure in Iran….
