Oriana Fallaci, 19292006, the Italian journalist and political interviewer, had an interview with Khomeini in 1979 . We have published the English translation of this long interview in series of three parts, and here are the third and last part:
“Imam, but as you can equate a beast of Savak and a citizen exercising his sexual freedom? Take the case of the young man who was shot yesterday for sodomy … We must eliminate corruption . What about the case of a pregnant young woman a few weeks ago was shot for adultery. Pregnant? Lies. Lies such as the breasts cut for women . In Islam, these things do not happen [!!!]. You do not shoot pregnant women. They are not lies, Imam. All the newspapers have spoken about it, and there was also debate on television because her lover had given only a hundred lashes. If so it means that she deserved punishment [!!!!]. How should I know. The woman has done something serious, ask at the forum who judges. And then you talk about these things. I’m tired [!!!]. They are not important things [!!!!] . Let’s talk about the Kurds who were shot because they want independence. These Kurds are shot are not the Kurdish people. That are subversive act against the people and the Revolution like the one that was shot yesterday and had killed thirteen people. And when they are arrested, such as the five this morning, for distributing communist leaflets? If arrested them means that they deserved [!!!!] , which were common in the service of foreign communists who are acting as false for America and for the Shah. I’m tired [!!!]. OK … if the Shah to return the money, you stop hunt him down? For the money, yes, if you really gave it back, yes, in that sense, the bill would be paid. For the betrayal of his country and Islam, but no. How can you forgive the massacre of 15 Kordad (1963) [!!!] , the massacre of sixteen years ago, and the massacre of Black Friday, a year ago, how can you forgive all the dead left behind? Only if I could resurrect the dead forgive contenting myself to get back the money stolen from the people he and his family. … His son Reza, for example. I have nothing against him. He can come back to Iran, and live like a normal citizen. … And Farah Diba? For her, the court will decide. And Ashraf? Ashraf is like Shah, a traitor like him … Imam, Have you ever felt pity, and understanding for someone? And have you ever cried in these months? I cry, I laugh, I suffer: You thinks that I am not a human being? I have granted amnesty to policemen, gendarmes, a number of people. I think I have shown mercy. But for those that have been discussed there is no forgiveness, no mercy. This is enough. I’m tired [!!!], stop. Please, Imam: I have to ask many more things. This “chador” for example, that they put me to come to you. That you imposes it on women, tell me, why force them to hide under clothing bundles as awkward and absurd with which you can not work or move? ”
“Women who have made the Revolution were and are women with the Islamic dress, not like you and your makeup.The women who showing the neck, hair, and shapes, did not fight the Shah [!] . They never did any good ones [!]. Never know to be useful: not socially or politically, or professionally. This is because, uncovering, distracting the men and disturb them [!!] . Then distract and disturb the other women. Not true, Imam. Anyway, I am not referring only to a garment, but what it represents: that segregation in which women were dismissed after the Revolution . The very fact that they can not study at university with men, for example, or work with men and do not swim in the sea or pool with men. They must dive to part with the “chador”. By the way, how do you swim with the “chador”? All this does not concern you. Our customs do not concern you. If you do not like Islamic dress, is not obliged to carry it [!!!]. Because Islamic dress is for young beautiful women [!!!] and decent man [!!]. Very nice. And, because I say so, I take off this stupid rag immediately from the Middle Ages. That’s it. But tell me: a woman like me who has always lived among men showing the neck and ears and hair, which has been at war and has stayed with the soldiers at the front, do you think is an immoral woman, a very unrespectable old woman? I do not judge cases, we can not know if your life is moral or immoral, whether or not they perform well with soldiers at war. But I know that in my long life I have had confirmation of what I said. If there were this garment, women could not work in a useful and healthy. And even the men. Our laws are good laws [!!!] . Including the law that allows a man to take four wives, Imam? The law of four wives is a very progressive law [!!!] and was written for the sake of women since women outnumber men [!!!], more women than men are born, wars kill more men than women. A woman needs a man, and what we do as the world there are more women than men? You prefer that women become prostitutes or instead they marry a man with multiple wives? [!!!] Does not seem fair that single women become prostitutes because they lack men [!!!]. And I say, even in difficult conditions that Islam requires a man with two or three or four wives, equal treatment and equal affection and the same time, this law is better than monogamy. But these laws or customs that date back fourteen hundred years ago, Imam Khomeini! Do not you think that the world, meanwhile, has gone on? In compliance with those laws, You have even revived the prohibition of music and alcohol. Explain to me: Why drink a glass of wine or beer when you are thirsty is a sin? And why music is a sin? Our priests drink and sing. This means that even the Pope, the Pope is a sinner? The rules of your priests do not interest me. Islam forbids alcohol and nothing else. The bans because they absolutely lose my mind and prevent you from thinking in a healthy way. Music also tarnishes the mind, it carries within it the same pleasures and ecstasy drug. Your music, I mean. Usually it does not exalt the spirit, it falls asleep. It distracts our young people who are poisoned and do not care more for their country.
“Even the music of Bach, Beethoven, Verdi? Who are these names I do not know [!!!!]. If you do not tarnish the mind will not be prohibited. Some of your music are not prohibited, for example marches and hymns for marching. We want music that exalt us like the gears that move the young people do rather than paralyze them, causing them to worry about their country. [!!!] Imam Khomeini, you always expressed in very harsh terms to the West. You see us as champions of all ugliness, of every wickedness. Yet the West has accepted you in exile and many of your colleagues have studied in the West . Do not you think that there is something good about us? There is something there. But when we were bitten by the snake also fear a string that looks like a snake from a distance. And we have too much bite. And for too long. Yes, we have received so badly by the West, so much suffering, and now we have very reason to fear the West, to prevent our young people to get closer to the West and gain further influence by the West [!!] . No, I do not like that our young people go to study in the West where they are corrupted by alcohol [!!!], which prevents them from useful thinking and instead they think about music, drugs, and women face and women body [!!!!]. … Yes, Imam, but also the plane on which you returned to your homeland is a product of the West. The phone you communicate with from Qom, even the TV which you address the country so often, this air conditioner that allows you to sit in a cool place in the desert heat. If we are so corrupt, so corrupt, why you use our tools of evil? Because these are the good things of the West [!!]. And we have no fear [!!] and we use it. We are not afraid of your science and your technology, we fear your ideas and your morals [!!]. This means that you fear us politically, socially [!!]. And we want that the country is ours, we want not to interfere in our politics and our economy and our customs and our business. That’s enough. I’m tired [!!] One last question, Imam. These days I spent in Iran I saw very unhappy, very disorder, much chaos. The Revolution has not brought good results you had promised. The country is in deep waters and there are those who see dark, very dark future for Iran . What do you say? This is the answer: we are a child of six months. Our revolution has only six months. … And what do you want from a six month old child? … We need time …. Who call themselves communists or democrats, do not give us time. They are the ones that attack us and bring around talking about civil wars and coups that will not happen because the people are united. ”
That six months child, was a monster child, a baby Godzilla ! And now this monster is 33, but at the end of his f-u-c-k-ing life. It’s a historical joke that in 1979 and the whole 1980s, the Islamic regime shot and executed the young men for sodomy, but in 2009 and 2010, the young men were sodomized in the Islamic regime’s prisons. The Basiji rapsits, i.e. Khomeini’s children, raped men and women in the prisons and called it “a necessary Islamic duty” It’s the black comedy of the history. You know, the stupid Shah did not have to arrest and exile Khomeini to France. Instead, he had to use the Mullah’s tactics. He had to sodomize Khomeini in Qom, and then released him ! Then Khomeini’s followers left their “faggot leader”! very soon. Our situation in Iran is really comic-tragic. Khomeini and Islamists executed many young virgin or pregnant women, and then simply said “they deserved punishment”. In fact, it’s an Islamic principle and rule that says: “If the Islamic regime arrested any one, and then killed them, and raped them; it means that they deserved ” Oh, how stupid were Iranians! How stupid were the older generations of Iranians, who were blind and could not see how stupid is Khoneimi. But the price of this stupidity was very very high. Iranians have a funny old saying that says: “Choub to Kounet Mikonanad” which literally means “They put a stick in your ass !!” In fact, the Mullahs put a very long stick in the stupid Iranians’ ass ! But unfortunately it is not only an imaginary metaphor. It really happened. In 2009 and 2010, the Basiji rapists, the Khomeini’s dogs, put their batons in the protesters’ ass, and really proved that the Mullahs put a very long stick in the people’s ass ! So don’t be stupid, young Iranians and all human beings. If you were stupid and were deceived by the Islamists again, then they would put a very long stick in your ass !
