For Azadeh on the Role of JM During the Revolution

Dear Azadeh,

My apologies for the late response. As soon as I have some time (in the next few weeks), I will do my best to provide answers to your questions and critique on the role of JM during the revolution.  Just wanted to let you know that I was not ignoring you and your critique.

I decided to submit the passage from my book as an article to a peer-reviewed scholarly journal. Journals will not publish something that is already available on the internet. Therefore, I deleted my blog containing the passage from my book.

Best regards,

So make sure you come up with a better white-wash than before and no hiding behind Katousian and other white-washers. Enough of robatic repetition of the same insipid stories you have produced so far. Let me give you a little lead:

Dr Abbas Milani who interviewed Abolhassan Bani-Sadr in relation to his lastest book, quotes Bani Sadr's account of the first "paa boosi" of Imam Khomeini by a group of JM leaders headed by Sanjabi in Neauphle-le-Chateau. Bani-Sadr who was a witness says: "after Sanjabi paid his respects submissively and declared JM's total support of Khomeini's leadership, he handed in a written statement affirming the submission of Jebhe Melli to Khomeini and left the room. Khomeini, without opening the envelope containing the statement put it under his pillow and said, in a contemptious tone: So much for their Jebhe Melli!!

Let's hear more of such stories Masoud.
