Obscuring an important historic fact[edit]

Khomeini returned to Iran in an Air France plane. The current article not only (conveniently) uses a cropped version of the original picture, but the correction of this omission has been reverted. This is not a minor historic point if we recall that Lenin returned to Russia in a sealed German train...

Name Confusion[edit]

I think some people might get Khomeini confused with Khamenei, the current leader of Iran. There should be a sentence in italics above this article that says "Not to be confused with Ali Khamenei"

This article is nothing other than an official propaganda[edit]

First: Khomeini's hypocrisy which has been mentioned by many sources is mostly denied or forgotten.

Second: Khomeini's direct involvement in massive massacres and human rights violations has not been explicitly described and documented.

Third: Unnecessary details causes spontaneous information about the critical facts to be lost and missed.

Fourth(and the most important one): The lead of the article says almost nothing other than what you can hear from Iran government and intentionally skips the few critiques and facts that has survived from their agents' edits.

After reviewing this article's history I have found the cause: Obviously there exists a sophisticated and organized continuous attempt, participated by a few contributors to freeze the article in this state. Someone should do something about this phenomenon. This is a shame for WP to include such a page in it. IRVoice (talk) 10:14, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
