Enemies of the Ayatollahs
Mohammad Mohaddessin
Price: $ 25

What happens in post-war Iraq may well be decided by what happens in Iran. In this powerful account of its theocratic regime, the author pays particular attention to the Iranian factor in the 2003 Iraq war, and the likely impact of the continuation of the mullahs' regime and its tendency to interfere in its neighbor's affairs. He reveals startling new information about Iran's continued links with fundamentalist Islamic organizations abroad, the pursuit of its nuclear ambitions, and its ongoing use of terrorism against its own opponents. The author argues that, in contrast to the ruling regime, the main Iranian opposition is essentially democratic, nationalist and in favor of a separation of religion and state. He raises fundamental questions about Islamic fundamentalism, and sets out a democratic version of Islam which can hold out hope for the Middle East as a whole.

Mohammad Mohaddessin has been a life-long opponent of autocracy in Iran. Imprisoned under the Shah, he was later forced into exile by Ayatollah Khomeini. He chairs the foreign affairs committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the main opposition umbrella group.
