The other day I had an interesting conversation with my grandmother about the Iranian Revolution and what it was like when she was growing up. She told me that her father hated Khomeini, and even had a dart board with Khomeini’s picture on it. A large amount of this hatred has to do with the fact that my family is jewish and Khomeini had a hatred towards Israel. She also said that the Americans hated Khomeini because they thought he was corrupting Iran and the rest of the world. We also talked about current events in Iran. We both agreed that we thought it was wrong that the US was being nosy and getting involved with Iran. We said that not every country can have a government like ours and we have to accept that instead of trying to convert them to a democracy when it’s just not possible.
