Leftover of so much populist emotion

Are you aware of the extent of criminal activities carried out by this Freemason Baha’i, who has even confessed his allegiance to the CIA?  If not, you should become aware that Mr. Ghulam Abbas Hoveyda, who even lied about his name, and instead of Ghulam Abbas introduced himself as Amir-Abbas, destroyed this country during his 13 years of autocratic government, and it will take a lifetime to rebuild. I am certain that once you familiarize yourself with his treacherous actions and how he destroyed the country, you will never permit yourself to make such an anti-national appeal to the Ayatollah Imam Khomeini.
