Fact-checking about Khomeini

Your post said:

“However, did you know that Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian revolution, was actually of British-Indian heritage and the son of a British Petroleum employee?  The Rothschild-owned BP was then known as Anglo-Iranian Oil.”

A basic fact check will tell you that Khomeini’s father died in 1903.  And he wasn’t British.

Also, Anglo-Iranian Oil wasn’t founded until 1908.

Apart from the factual inaccuracies, I enjoy your fantasy fiction.

Hello,

We are dealing with an Internet that is increasingly full of disinformation.  Maybe the Wikipedia version of history you cite is right, maybe not.  If I had more resources available, I could send somebody to check the paper birth records.  For now, I will just post your comment and let readers decide for themselves.

In any case, apart from the link I posted as evidence for the claim about Khomeini, my sources in the Iranian royal family have long claimed Khomeini was a Rothschild agent sent to overthrow them.
