Heckled Again

ISNA (Iranian Student News Agency) ran pictures of Rafsanjani being heckled by Mezbah Yazdi supporters, during his speech on the anniversary of Khomeini's death.
Mezbah Yazdi leads the Hojatieh sect, and is Ahmadinejad's mentor.
Khomeini was against the Hojatieh sect and they didn't support him at the time of the revolution in 1979.
Rafsanjani was heckled quite a bit last year before the presidential elections.
Interesting.

Those guy did support Khomeini and adored his evilness.

However, they are way radical than what many of us in the west may think.

They equal evil!

I know they're evil.

Everything I've read has said that Hojatieh did not support Khomeini at the time of the revolution.

I guess they did after all but they wanted a tougher/crazier revolution than what Khomeini sought...
