Mister Khomeini goes to Washington

WASHINGTON (AFP) - "Welcome Mister Khomeini," read the unlikely sign hanging on the 12th floor of a Washington building, home to a conservative think-tank hosting the Ayatollah Khomeini's grandson.

Facing journalists and researchers in dark suits, Hossein Khomeini, dressed in a traditional white jacket and black turban, took easily to the question-and-answer routine.

"Do you think that Iran today holds an atomic weapon?" fires an Iranian-American journalist in Farsi.

Khomeini's piercing eyes darkened as his eyebrow furrowed.

"I have no specific information. But it is such a troublemaker regime that I won't be surprised. And if they don't have it now, they will have it in the future, I have no doubt about it," he said, running his finger along his beard, which is not yet as thick as his grandfather's.

He spoke softly, but still set the tone for 90 minutes of relentless criticism of the Islamic regime in his country.

Hossein Khomeini, a well-educated Shiite Muslim steeped in Western philosophy, had been asked by the ayatollah to keep quiet with his ideas for a true democracy in Iran.

But after his grandfather and his uncle Ahmad died, Hossein received threats and lived in isolation in the holy city of Qom, until he decided to flee across the border with Iraq (news - web sites).

"Under the shah, at least, religious practice was free. Today, after the revolution, Iran is one of the worst dictatorships," he said, running his fingers along his prayer beads.

Khomeini welcomed the US-led invasion of Iraq, which he said had made it a "free country," and called on US President George W. Bush (news - web sites) to intervene in Iran and install a "true democracy."

"Iran is intervening now into Iraqi territory, and maybe it will force the United States to intervene in Iran too," said Khomeini, who has lived in Iraq for several months.

"Mr. Bush should act like Churchill when he gathered around him the British population to fight against Hitler," he said, before singing the praises of Western democracy and its "indispensable" freedoms of thought and of religion.

Another question, this time about terrorist groups backed by Iran, particularly Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Palestinian territories.

"So many questions, I hope it won't last til tomorrow morning," he said with barely perceptible smile.

But he doesn't dodge the question.

"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," he said.

The moderator moves to close the gathering.

"I never thought I'd introduce a Khomeiny here, in (Washington) DC," he said.

Before leaving, Khomeini wishes a "happy new year" to his surprised host.

"The Jewish New Year," explained the translator.

Khomeini gets up and leaves the room to a round of applause.

Ayatollah Khomeini's Grandson visits USA
SMCCDI ^ | 9/24/03 | SMCCDI

The Iraqi newspaper "Al-Zaman" has confirmed, in its yesterday edition, a news stating about the presence of Rouh-Ollah Khomeni's dissident grandson on the US soil.

The presence of "Hossein Khomeini", grandson of the founder of the Islamic regime and a man who qualified the US as the "Great Satan", follows his escape to Iraq and his public calls for a radical change seeking the replacement of the theocratic system by a secular regime.

Hossein Khomeini is said to have been received by several US officials during meetings which have take place since Sept. 19th. The Bush Administration is seeking for someone capable to help to the overthrown of the fragilized Islamic regime.

The American visit of this dissident cleric and its supposed future collaboration with the US Administration is the perfect sign of the collapse of the Khomeinism doctrine which was based on waging the hate of American principles.
