Khomeini Rebukes Iran Premier
Iran’s spiritual leader, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, rebuked Prime Minister Hussein Moussavi today for offering to resign, saying he should stop quibbling and get on with his job.
“When the . . . people sacrifice their sons for the sake of Islam it is no time for bickering and resigning,” Tehran Radio quoted Khomeini as saying in a letter to Moussavi, who offered his resignation Monday, citing problems in agreeing on Cabinet appointments with President Ali Khamenei and Parliament.
