Back at the time of the Rushdie fatwa, Private Eye published two identical pictures of Khomeini (or some other mullah) with the captions: 'Ayatollah Killrushdie: leader of the moderates' and 'Ayatollah Rushdiekillie: leader of the hardliners'. The official self-proclaimed Iran experts have been peddling this line since 1979, never it seems discouraged or discredited by events.

It's funny, I came across an article in the Guardian published in about mid-1933 discussing Nazi Germany and it was peddling EXACTLY the same crap about some spurious division between "hard-line" and "moderate" Nazis.

The New Yorker called him "wily". He's the "wiliest" politician.
