These days Iranians remember the departure from this world of Imam Khomeini, father of a paradigm-shifting revolution – the Islamic Revolution – like few in history. I was first introduced to the person of Imam Khomeini by the 1988 Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker Hollywood comedy film “The Naked Gun” starred by Leslie Nielsen, which I loved to watch as a kid and cracked me up each time I replayed it.

On the Commemoration of the 24th anniversary of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Sayed Rohollah Mousavi Khomeini, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei delivered an important speech to a gathering of millions at the Imam Khomeini’s Mausoleum.
