Khamenei on Revolution’s Achievements

February 10, 2014

            Iran’s supreme leader celebrated the 1979 revolution on his Facebook page, even though the site is banned in the Islamic Republic. The following are images Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s account posted in early February to mark the revolution’s 35th anniversary. Each one heralds what Iran views as one of its main accomplishments – in nuclear science, women’s rights, education, building its armed forces, and more.

            This split-photo posted on Khamenei’s Facebook page depicts two generations of the revolution under two supreme leaders – the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (right) and Khamenei (left).
