Hossein KhomeiniLinked to Likudnik Front Organization

The California Review Online: "The second is Ayatollah Khomeini. Not that Khomeini, his grandson Hossein Khomeini.

Ayatollah Hossein Khomeini has recently praised U.S. action in Iraq, saying that U.S. action made Iraq a “free” country, and has consistently slammed the Iranian regime. He, as well as a number of other Ayatollahs, recently fled from the holy city of Qom in Iran to practice in Iraq. He spoke on Sept. 26 at the American Enterprise Institute with some less-than-friendly words for the IRI: “Today, after the revolution, Iran is one of the worst dictatorships.”

Hossein Khomeini also slammed Iran’s support for terror. “No Muslim should be allowed to have such activities,” he said. “Unfortunately, Iran is a long supporter of terrorism. This regime is one of the most active supporters of terrorism.” In fact, Khomeini called on the U.S. to get involved and support the democracy movement in Iran. He hoped that Iran’s actions in Iraq would make the U.S. look at Iran.
