For most, the mention of the Ayatollah Khomeini conjures up haunting images of blindfolded hostages being led from the American Embassy in Tehran. But for many in Iran, Khomeini is a legend who lives on today in the continuing revolution of Islam. His image covers buildings and monuments, his fierce gaze perpetually watchful.
Here is the story of Khomeini's rise from dutiful student in the dusty hamlet of Khomein in Iran to one of the most ruthless leaders the twentieth century has ever known. A man of myth and uncertainty, even the date of his birth is unknown. But what is known is that as a 70-year old grandfather, Khomeini pulled off one of the most daring revolutions in history and succeeded in serving up a crushing blow to America.
Examine the man whose name brings to mind a swell of hate to most in Iran and America but instills immeasurable pride, honor and national dignity to many people in Iran
