- "Anyone who will say that religion is separate from politics is a fool; he does not know Islam or politics."
- —Rhullah Knomeini
Rhudollah Khomeini (September 24th, 1902 - June 3rd, 1989) was the Supreme Leader of Iran. He was a religious extreme far-left authority that enforced fundamentalist Islamic laws and was part of the "Axis of Evil" along with Iraq and North Korea. His crimes included the execution of children and killing non-Muslims and homosexuals. While the current leader has bad laws too, Rhudollah is certainly much worse. He also caused genocides. He disliked Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, who disliked him back, due to Saddam being a Sunni Muslim and Khomeini being a Shia Muslim (which Saddam hated). He died in 1989 of heart failure.
- "The author of The Satanic Verses book which is against Islam, the Prophet and the Qu'ran, and all involved in its publication who were aware of its content, are sentenced to death. I call on all zealous Muslims to execute them wherever they find them, so that no one will dare to insult the Islamic sanctions. Whoever is killed on this path will be regarded as a martyr, God willing."
