Iran - Hitchens Meets Khomeini

Frontpage Magazine reports on Hitchens' trip to Iran and his meeting with Khomeini's grandson. What he finds is enlightening.

"I stand," he tells me calmly, "for the complete separation of religion and the state." In terms that would make the heart of a neocon soar like a hawk, he goes on to praise President Bush's State of the Union speech, to warn that the mullahs cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons, and to use the term "Free World" without irony: "Only the Free World, led by America, can bring democracy to Iran."

Read the whole thing, it is a first hand account of what the people of Iran really think about the mad mullahs.
