which was a step intended to stabilize the foundations of despotic rule
and to reinforce the political, cultural, and economic dependence of Iran
on world imperialism, brought into being a united movement of the people
and, immediately afterwards, a momentous revolution of the Muslim nation
in the month of Khurdad, 1342 [June 19631. Although this revolution was
drowned in blood, in reality it heralded the beginning of the blossoming
of a glorious and massive uprising, which confirmed the central role of
Imam Khomeini as an Islamic leader.
Despite his exile from Iran after his protest against the humiliating
law of capitulation (which provided legal immunity for American advisers),

Throughout this time, the conscious and responsible segment of society
was bringing enlightenment to the people from the strongholds of the mosques,
centers of religious teaching, and universities. Drawing inspiration from
the revolutionary and fertile teachings of Islam, they began the unrelenting
yet fruitful struggle of raising the level of ideological awareness and
revolutionary consciousness of the Muslim people. The despotic regime
which had begun the suppression of the Islamic movement with barbaric
attacks on the Fayciyyah: Madrasah, Tehran University, and all other active

The Islamic Revolution of Iran was nurtured by the blood of hundreds
of young men and women, infused with faith, who raised their cries of
"Allahu Akbar" at daybreak in execution yards, or were gunned down by
the enemy in streets and marketplaces. Meanwhile, the continuing declarations
and messages of the Imam that were issued on various occasions, extended
and deepened the consciousness and determination of the Muslim nation
to the utmost.
