look at the life of Ayatollah Khomeini from childhood to end.
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
people in Iran
