Remembrance of an Old Fighter on the Fortieth Day of His Passing

Rasoulzadeh, a Man of Belief and Action

Haj Mohammad Rasoulzadeh entered a new phase in 1328 [1949] with the assassination of a Zionist element. Together with seven of his friends, he had decided to assassinate the leader of the Zionists of the district of Kashan and its surroundings, who, as a prominent Zionist, [in the guise] of a physician, had violated the lives and the honour of Muslims, and had openly set fire to the Qur’an. Documents discovered after the mercenary’s death indicated a dangerous mission to strike at Islam and Muslims. In addition, he also was an active member of the Baha’ist espionage party.
