ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "Enemies of the Ayatollahs: The Iranian Opposition's War on Islamic Fundamentalism," written by Mohammad Mohaddessin. In this account of the theocratic regime still in power in Iran, the writer examines the Iranian factor in the recent Iraq War in 2003. Mohaddessin reveals new information about Iran's continued export of Islamic fundamentalism, the pursuit of its nuclear ambitions, and its ongoing use of repression against its own opponents, all of which justify a high level of international concern. The writer of the book argues that, in contrast to the ruling regime, the main Iranian opposition is a democratic, nationalist movement that favours a separation of religion and state.
