The Ayatollah Khomeini’s grandson, a critic of the Iranian regime, is going back to Iran after threats to his family there (and promises he won’t be harmed if he goes back) according to Michael Ledeen in a special to the New York Sun:

He had been unable to obtain permission for his wife and children to join him in Iraq, and his wife had recently been visited by Iranian security agents who told her,”if your children suddenly die in the streets, you must know that it was not our doing.”

His grandmother sent him a message a few days ago, which stressed the importance “for the family” for him to return, warned of the danger to his children, and contained a promise from the regime that no harm would be done to him. [January 6, 2004]
