One of the slogans which the Khomeini regime deceptively raised is “Death to America.” It made political gains via this propaganda which also included slogans about Jerusalem and Palestine. Observers can tell that Iran’s involvement in the Palestinian cause is recent and sudden.
The guardians of the Khomeini regime have always worked to serve the interests of the regime which has nothing to do with the propaganda it sells to its supporters and to some sick elites.
The Khomeinis’ ties with Uncle Sam, the “Great Satan,” are well-known.
There is the 1985-1986 Iran–Contra scandal and the major secret deal, the details of which were accurately planned by Hassan Rouhani’s team and John Kerry, US Secretary of State, during Obama’s term. The Obama-Khamenei flirtation began in the first year after Obama assumed the presidency.
However, these ties have an older history. I’ve recently read an extensive article by Saudi researcher Kamel al-Khatti which was published in the Okaz daily. Khatti traced the contacts and agreements which the Khomeini regime’s founder reached with the Americans while he was exiled in France.
His article highlighted a BBC Persian Service report by Iranian Journalist Kambiz Fattahi and investigative reporters Taylor Kate Brown, Jessica Lussenhop, Bill McKenna and Mat Morrison.
The BBC report also revealed that Khomeini confirmed to the Americans that he will work on protecting their interests and make sure that Americans in Iran will be safe. He pledged to the Americans that he will not work on exporting the revolution and will not be hostile to neighboring Arab regimes like Saudi Arabia, Iraq and KuwaitMashari Althaydi
