Summary
  • "At the outbreak of the Islamic revolution on 1979, a small religious group called the Forqan emerged. Under the leadership of Akbar Goodarzi, a young religious fanatic, the Forqan looked for support among the younger generation in their fight against the Ayatollah Khomeini, whose new Shi'a doctrine they took as a call to war. While fighting Khomeini, the Forqan also tried to gain supporters and adherents through religious lectures and distribution of religious pamphlets called the Forqan ('the Truth,' 'the right path'), the way of the Quran. After a series of successful assassinations of Khomeini's supporters, the regime fought back against the Forqan and defeated the group. The question remains whether foreign intelligences agencies, such as the Mossad, the CIA, and the remnants of the SAVAK supported the Forqan's actions. This book provides an in-depth look at what really happened behind the fog of revolution"--
  • "With the coming of the Islamic revolution in Iran, a little group, fanatical and dangerous, called the Forqan Group, chose to fight the Ayatollah Khomeini's plan to establish an Islamic and theocratic state. Their method of choice was to assassinate the religious cadre leaders with the hopes to destroy the spinal column of the revolution. Their success with professional methods of assassination stunned the clergy, prompting Khomeini's regime to declare war against the Forqan. The question remains whether foreign intelligences agencies, such as the Mossad , the CIA, and the remnants of the SAVAK, supported the Forqan's actions. This book provides an in-depth look at what really happened behind the fog of revolution"--
