5.1.04: 'Enemies of the Ayatollahs makes a valuable and timely contribution. This well-researched work helps us grasp what is happening inside Iran today and how these developments are affecting and being affected by the developing situation in Iraq. It also helps us learn more about Iran's main opposition movement, the People's Mojahedin.'James Akins, former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia'I find this book a timely addition to the critical debate over Iran, Iraq, and the path that lies ahead of that region of the world. The book is a powerful expose of the undercurrent of events in Iraq and Iran. It argues in clear terms against the appeasement of the clerical regime in Iran.' Raymond Tanter, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan and former staff member of the National Security Council'This is an objective and well-documented study of the clash of Islams in Iran, the long-standing struggle between the millions who see Islam as a religion of mercy and tolerance and a clerical clique presenting it as the foe of democratic, secular values. It provides a unique insight into an issue with implications that go far beyond Iran's domestic politics and will play a dominant role in shaping the future of post-conflict Iraq.'Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, Chairman of the Iran Freedom Committee'Mohaddessin's book is a timely and much-needed contribution to the crucial debate on Islamic fundamentalism.'Win Griffiths, Member of Parliament, former British cabinet member'An insightful history of the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Iran and the frontline opponents who have fought it?. The book explains the two decades long confrontation between Iran's ruling clerics and their main opponents, the Mojahedin Khalq or People's Mojadedin (PMOI).'Donna M. Hughes, Professor, University of Rhode Island
