A History of Modern Iran
In a reappraisal of Iran's modern history, Ervand Abrahamian traces its traumatic journey across the twentieth century, through the discovery of oil, imperial interventions, the rule of the Pahlavis and, in 1979, revolution and the birth of the Islamic Republic. In the intervening years, the country has experienced a bitter war with Iraq, the transformation of society under the clergy and, more recently, the expansion of the state and the struggle for power between the old elites, the intelligentsia and the commercial middle class. The author is a compassionate expositor. While he adroitly negotiates the twists and turns of the country's regional and international politics, at the heart of his book are the people of Iran. It is to them and their resilience that this book is dedicated, as Iran emerges at the beginning of the twenty-first century as one of the most powerful states in the Middle East.
The 1987 mass killings in Iran
“Worse than infidels”
After Khomeini’s June 25 speech in which he said the Mojahedin was “worse than infidels,” he set the stage for outright suppression of the PMOI. His decree gave a green light not only to the Revolutionary Guards and club-wielders, but also to the judiciary and the religious judges across Iran.
Responding to a letter of complaint by Mojahedin supporters in August 1980, when the organization still engaged in public activities, Mullah Allameh, head of the revolutionary court in Bam, in southern Iran, wrote: “According to the decree of Imam Khomeini, the Mojahedin of Iran are infidels and worse than blasphemers... They have no right to life.” This type of “punishment en masse” for the followers of a party or a political organization with mass following across the nation can only be described as genocidal. A decade later, Mohammad Yazdi, then-head of the regime’s judiciary, referred to Khomeini’s order to massacre the Mojahedin and their supporters, issued months before it became public, as follows;
The Imam’s hand-written judicial order condemned the [Mojahedin] - the totality of the organization and its infrastructure, and not individuals - so that there would be no hesitation in terming the activities by these individuals as waging war on God and corruption on Earth [and carrying out their execution orders
In summer 1988, Khomeini issued a fatwa to physically annihilate the Mojahedin. Some 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in a spate of several months. The full text of the fatwa was made public years later by his deposed successor Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri. This fatwa did not attract as much attention as the one issued a few months later against British author Salman Rushdie. It is, nonetheless, an important historical document, for it shows, before all else, that, Islamic fundamentalism in power has ultimately no recourse other than to physically eliminate its opponents. This is one of the many characteristics which transforms Islamic fundamentalism to fascism under the cloak of religion (compare with the Nazis’ “final solution” and the concentration camps). The text of Khomeini’s fatwa was as follows:
As the treacherous Monafeqin [Mojahedin] do not believe in Islam and what they say is out of deception and hypocrisy, and as their leaders have confessed that they have become renegades, and as they are waging war on God….. and as they are tied to the World Arrogance [the United States], it is decreed that those who are in prison throughout the country and who remain steadfast in their support for the Monafeqin, are waging war on God and are condemned to execution. It is naive to show mercy to those who wage war on God. The decisive ways in which Islam treats the enemies of God is among the unquestionable tenets of the Islamic regime… Those who are making decisions must not hesitate nor should they show any doubt or be concerned with details. They must try to be most ferocious against infidels… To have doubts about the judicial matters of revolutionary Islam is to ignore the pure blood of martyrs
Following the fatwa, then-Chief Justice Abdolkarim Moussavi Ardebili asked Khomeini, through his son, Ahmad, whether the decree also applied to those who had already been tried who had received limited jail terms.
Khomeini’s response was chilling:
If the person at any stage or at any time maintains his [or her] support for the Monafeqin, the sentence is execution. Annihilate the enemies of Islam immediately. Use whichever criterion that speeds up the implementation of the [execution] verdict.
In an article in February 2001, entitled, “Khomeini fatwa 'led to killing of 30,000 in Iran'” the Sunday Telegraph wrote:
Children as young as 13 were hanged from cranes, six at a time, in a barbaric two-month purge of Iran's prisons on the direct orders of Ayatollah Khomeini, according to a new book by his former deputy. More than 30,000 political prisoners were executed in the 1988 massacre. Gruesome details are contained in the memoirs of Grand Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri, one of the founders of the Islamic regime. The most damning of the letters and documents published in the book is Khomeini's fatwa decree calling for all Mojahedin (as opponents of the Iranian regime are known) to be killed.
The article added:
Mr. Kamal Afkhami Ardakani, a former official at Evin Prison, said in testimonies to human rights rapporteurs of the United Nations: “They would line up prisoners in a 14-by-five-metre hall in the central office building and then ask simply one question, 'What is your political affiliation?' Those who said the Mojahedin would be hanged from cranes in position in the car park behind the building.”He went on to describe how, every half an hour from 7.30am to 5pm, 33 people were lifted on three forklift trucks to six cranes, each of which had five or six ropes. He said: "The process went on and on without interruption." In two weeks, 8,000 people were
