In this recent speech, a prominent Iranian regime official and member of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution boasts that Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic regime, was the key to creating regional tension as a means of destabilizing governments and strengthening Iran’s power.    The official, Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi, a leading scholar and confidant of the current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also insists that young people in all other Muslim countries should be overthrow their governments since “this was the will of Imam Khomeini.”

In his address to regime loyalists, Azghadi says, “Muslim youths in all Muslim countries should overthrow their governments; this was the will of Imam Khomeini.  The imam was a tremendous creator of tension. He was the source of tension. I was looking around to locate tension to disrupt and eliminate it, but he was the mastermind of tension. He was the center of creating tension.   He would not let the world be peaceful even for a week.  This old man laid quietly in wait and in his speeches every time he would slam one place in world, like saying ‘Palestine must be liberated’, ‘Israel must be destroyed’, ‘What should we do in Africa?’  and so on.  And his tension led the world to say, ‘Let’s see – what’s the USA’s opinion?’, ‘What’s the Soviet view?’  and then ‘What’s Imam Khomeini’s viewpoint?’  The world was focusing on these three sides.”
