Jews and Baha’is Hidden in Imam Khomeini’s Thought

According to the Shohadaye Iran [Iran Martyrs], the late Imam Khomeini repeatedly paid attention to the phenomenon of secret Jews and [their] connection with secret Baha’is, and had warned that he mentions some of these cases due to the discussions about the enemy’s influence and [their] espionage projects:

... In addition to the above speech, about five months before the assassination of Hassan Ali Mansour and the rise of Amir Abbas Hoveyda to the premiership, who belonged to a prominent Baha’i family, His Honour spoke about the Zionist influence in Iran and the history of Babi/Baha’i terrorism and the danger of the secret influence of the Baha’is in government agencies, saying, “These Israeli agents in Iran―wherever you put your finger, you see that there is one of them. Sensitive centres, dangerous centres, by God, dangerous centres for this man’s [the shah] crown. They are not aware. These are those who conspired in Shemiran to kill Naser al-Din Shah [and] take over the country of Iran. Look at the history. You know the history. They conspired in Niavaran. In Niavaran, several people went to assassinate Naser al-Din Shah, and some were in Tehran to seize power. They believe the government is theirs. They have written in their books; in their articles, they say that ‘The government is ours; we must create a new monarchy, a new government, a government of justice’ …Sir, be afraid of these. These are strange creatures.”
