As it happens, in the three “human rights” suits the Canadian Islamic Congress brought against me, one of the complaints was that I’d quoted the Ayatollah.
In the famous edition of TVO’s “Agenda”, in which I wound up meeting the three sock puppets face to face, Khurrum Awan took the same line as Ms Eliadis – that Khomeini was an “obscure figure”, and by quoting extremists I was implicitly linking them to Canadian Muslims.
Yet here are Canadian Muslims explicitly linking themselves to Ayatollah Khomeini. Nor was he the only Iranian bigshot on display at Queen’s Park. Among the others was Khomeini’s successor as Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khameini.
