  • The beginning of a long Regime
    • Iran's 1979 revolution was quickly hijacked by right winged clerics who quickly created a constitution giving power to a religious supreme leader.
  • Khomeini became faqih, or definitive leader, and used his unlimited powers to eliminate opponents. When he won 99% of a vote for a new constitution, there was nothing to stop him from obtaining supreme dictatorship . Khomeini also proceeded with a purge of all “un-Islamic” elements from universities, newspapers, and other social aspects of the country.
  • Death by a firing squad was ordered to any one who opposed the revolution.
