Example text

One of Khomeini’s tactics for undermining the Pahlavi regime was to appeal to the military. Winning the sentiments of the soldiers eventually would be necessary, he knew. Although countless demonstrators were dying at the hands of the army, Khomeini did not condemn the men in uniform. Rather, in his taped messages he implored them not to harm the protesters, for they all were Muslims. Instead, he said, the army must turn against the godless shah and unite with the revolutionaries in a grand war on behalf of Allah.

Haeri was invited there to take over the local school and develop it into a respected Muslim training center. The school became known as the Madraseh Faizieh. Ruhollah, who accompanied him to Qom, would become one of Haeri’s most impressive students. He showed remarkable skill in debate and analysis. In time, he became one of the center’s prominent teachers. He would be widely known as a Muslim scholar. Qom is a city of special importance to Shiite Muslims because the historic tomb of Fatimah Ma’suma is there.

Mullahs thought to be enemies of the shah were placed under surveillance. Sometimes they were beaten or imprisoned. One was tortured to death. Meanwhile, the government took over some of Iran’s mosques and Islamic schools, appointing clerics who did not oppose the shah. Rather than force Khomeini’s followers to cower, these severe actions brought the distant ayatollah new admirers. Notable among the mullahs who helped spread Khomeini’s message throughout Iran were Muhammad Beheshti, Ali Khamenei, and Morteza Motahari.
