The Persian Night
Iran under the Khomeinist Revolution
By Amir Taheri
Narrated by Robertson Dean / 14 hours 13 minutes
Three decades after Khomeinist thugs raided the US embassy in Tehran, Westerners are puzzled by Iran. As a nation, Iranians still like the United States; as a revolutionary regime, however, Iran is the principal bastion of anti-Americanism. As a nation-state, Iran is not concerned with the Palestinian issue; but as a revolutionary cause, the Khomeinist regime must pose as Israel's archfoe to claim leadership of the Arabs. In this timely new offering, Amir Taheri dissects a regime that has hijacked a nation of millions for a global "holy war" against the United States and its allies. Taheri reveals the links between the Islamic Republic and terrorist networks including al-Qaeda and Hezballah, investigates the reality of Iran's nuclear and war-making capabilities, and most importantly, reveals how the Iranian regime can be resisted and defeated.
