The grandson of the late founder of the Islamic Republic has registered his candidacy for the forthcoming elections to Iran’s assembly of experts, a clerical body in charge of appointing the next supreme leader.
The 43-year-old cleric is sympathetic to reformists and backed Hassan Rouhani, the moderate Iranian president, in the 2013 vote.”
Above from Saeed Kamali Dehghan, Guardian’s Iran correspondent is typical of the approving write ups about the “candidacy” of Khomeini’s grandson.
Hassan Khomeini is the latest Islamist fascist -"reformers" and all rebranded as “reformist” and/or "moderate" by the usual suspects.
Just like forgetting about the criminal culpability of Mir-Hossein Mousavi Khameneh, Khomeini’s favorite Prime Minister, during whose tenure thousands of prisoners where summarily murdered by his government employees, this Khomeini 3.O too is being dried cleaned for his new “sympathetic to reformists “ position.
However, before the lovelies make a latter-Day Martin Luther out of this Khomeini 3.O, he has to set the record straight about where he stands on his grandfather’s crimes against humanity. Or, his father-in-law, a cleric as well, who is rabidly anti-Baha’i to the point of openly declaring these believers in the indigenous humanistic Iranian religion "have no rights, period."
Sanction works, U.S. Senate, get to it.
Ps. Khomeini 3.O is the custodian of his mass murderer of Grandpa’s gaudily opulent shrine/mausoleum, which is dubbed “the most expensive tomb in the world.”
