Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: Naher Osten, Vorderer Orient, Note: 2.0, Freie Universitat Berlin, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: ca. 7000 Worter, Abstract: 1. Einleitung Um auch heute noch die aussenpolitische Stellung des Iran im Gefuge der muslimischen Welt verstehen zu konnen, kommt man nicht umhin, sich mit einer seiner wichtigsten theoretischen Grundlagen zu beschaftigen: der Einheitsidee Khomeinis und dem Revolutionsexport. In dieser Arbeit sollen dementsprechend Erklarungsmuster gesucht werden, um die Isolation Irans gegenuber seinen muslimischen Nachbarlandern des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens verstehen zu konnen. Dabei spielen die Differenzen zwischen Sunniten und Schiiten eine zentrale Rolle, da in der historischen und religiosen Entwicklung der muslimischen Welt die immanenten Grunde fur die Spaltung und bisherige Nichtuberwindung dieses latenten" Konfliktes liegen. Wohl kam es nie zu einem Konflikt, der dem christlichen Aquivalent des 30-jahrigen Krieges nahe kame, dennoch handelt es sich um ein disparates Verhaltnis, welches sich heute in den Lebenswirklichkeiten von Muslimen meist in Nichtbeachten und Ignorieren ausdruckt, in jungerer Vergangenheit aber auch in Unterdruckung, z.B. in Irak und Saudi-Arabien. Dieses Verhaltnis ist von daher interessant, als dass man nicht von einem offenen Konflikt zwischen Sunniten und Schiiten ausgehen kann, der z.B. in eine Form des Burgerkrieges gefuhrt hatte, sondern von einem Nebenher der beiden Religionsgruppen, welches sich zwischen den Polen der gegenseitigen Nichtbeachtung und gewalttatigen Auseinandersetzungen und zwischen okumenischen Tendenzen und theologischer Verscharfung der Graben bewegt. Es wird hier die These vertreten, dass ein tieferes Verstandnis der Spaltung zwischen den beiden Gruppen notwendig ist, um die Bedeutung der Einheitsidee bei Khomeini genauso wie die Folgen fur die aussenpolitischen Bezieh

Reinventing Khomeini offers a new interpretation of the political battles that paved the way for reform in Iran. Brumberg argues that these conflicts did not result from a sudden ideological shift; nor did the election of President Mohammad Khatami in 1997 really defy the core principles of the Islamic Revolution. To the contrary, the struggle for a more democratic Iran can be traced to the revolution itself, and to the contradictory agendas of the revolution's founding father, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. A complex figure, Khomeini was a fervent champion of Islam, but while he sought a Shi'ite vision of clerical rule under one Supreme Leader, he also strove to mesh that vision with an implicitly Western view of mass participatory politics. The intense magnetism and charisma of the ayatollah obscured this paradox. But reformers in Iran today, while rejecting his autocratic vision, are reviving the constitutional notions of government that he considered, and even casting themselves as the bearers of his legacy. In Reinventing Khomeini, Brumberg proves that the ayatollah is as much the author of modern Iran as he is the symbol of its fundamentalist past.

Inmitten der Wirren der Islamischen Revolution besuchte Luise Rinser den Iran und legte hiermit einen Gegenentwurf zur Berichterstattung der internationalen Medien vor. Sie beschreibt ihre Eindrücke aus einer von großer Unsicherheit geprägten Zeit stets mit besonderem Blick auf die Situation des Einzelnen. Im Rückblick wissen wir heute, dass sich die islamischen Machthaber schnell durchsetzten und linke Oppositionsgruppen sukzessive ausschalteten. Die Einwohnerzahl des Landes hat sich seit 1979 verdoppelt, das Land sich geöffnet, doch das komplexe, jahrhundertealte Machtgefüge und die daraus resultierenden Spannungen bleiben bestehen.

On 1 February 1979 Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran to a tumultuous welcome and the Iranian revolution that that he masterminded has become one of the defining moments of the modern age. Today the challenge of radical Islam represents the greatest threat to world peace seen since the darkest days of the Cold War, and the legacy of Khomeini’s Islamic Revolution lies at the heart of many of the world’s most intractable conflicts. Khomeini’s Ghost is the definitive biographical account of how an impoverished young student from a remote area of southern Iran came to be the political and the spiritual leader of his country. Drawing on a wide variety of Iranian sources, including religious figures who knew and worked with Khomeini both in exile and in power, Con Coughlin examines in detail the principles of Khomeini’s Islamic Revolution and the impact of his legacy today, whether it is in Iran’s support for radical Islamic groups or Iran’s commitment to developing an atom bomb. Frighteningly topical, compellingly readable and written with authority and profound understanding of the subject, this is political biography at its best.

As the architect of the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini remains one of the most inspirational and enigmatic figures of the twentieth century. The revolution placed Iran at the forefront of Middle East politics and the Islamic revival. Twenty years after his death, Khomeini is revered as a spiritual and political figurehead in Iran and in large swathes of the Islamic world, while in the West he is remembered by many as a dictator and the instigator of Islamist confrontation. Arshin Adib-Moghaddam brings together distinguished and emerging scholars in this comprehensive volume, which covers all aspects of Khomeini's life and critically examines Khomeini the politician, the philosopher, and the spiritual leader, while considering his legacy in Iran and further afield in other parts of the Islamic world and the West. Written by scholars from varying disciplines, the book will prove invaluable to students and general readers interested in the life and times of Khomeini and the politics that he inspired.

Chapters: Political thought and legacy of Khomeini, Islamic Government: Governance of the Jurist, British-Ruhollah Khomeini conspiracy theory, Islamic Movement of Iran, Council of Islamic Revolution, Khadijeh Saqafi, Islam and Revolution. Excerpt: Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Mostafavi Moosavi Khomeini (Persian: , Persian pronunciation: , 24 September 1902 - 3 June 1989) was an Iranian religious leader and politician, and leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran. Following the revolution and a national referendum, Khomeini became the country's Supreme Leader-a position created in the constitution as the highest ranking political and religious authority of the nation-until his death. Khomeini was a marja ("source of emulation," also known as a Grand Ayatollah) in Twelver Shi'a Islam, but is most famous for his political role. In his writings and preachings he expanded the Shi'a Usuli theory of velayat-e faqih, the "guardianship of the jurisconsult (clerical authority)" to include theocratic political rule by the Islamic jurists. In the Muslim world abroad he was described as the "virtual face in Western popular culture of Islam," known for his support of the hostage takers during the Iranian hostage crisis and his fatwa calling for the death of British citizen Salman Rushdie. Khomeini has been referred to as a "charismatic leader of immense popularity," considered a "champion of Islamic revival" by Shia scholars. Khomeini is officially known as Imam Khomeini inside Iran and amongst his followers internationally, and Ayatollah Khomeini amongst others.

For many Americans, Iran is our most dangerous enemy--part of George W. Bush's "axis of evil" even before the appearance of Ahmadinejad. But what is the reality? How did Ahmadinejad rise to power, and how much power does he really have? What are the chances of normalizing relations with Iran? In After Khomeini, Sa?d Amir Arjomand paints a subtle and perceptive portrait of contemporary Iran. This work, a sequel to Arjomand's acclaimed The Turban for the Crown, examines Iran under the successors of Ayatollah Khomeini up to the present day. He begins, as the Islamic Republic did, with Khomeini, offering a brilliant capsule biography of the man who masterminded the revolution that overthrew the Shah. Arjomand draws clear distinctions between the moderates of the initial phrase of the revolution, radicals, pragmatists, and hardliners, the latter best exemplified by Mahmud Ahmadinejad. Taking a chronological and thematic approach, he traces the emergence and consolidation of the present system of collective rule by clerical councils and the peaceful transition to dual leadership by the ayatollah as the supreme guide and the subordinate president of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He explains the internal political quarrels among Khomeini's heirs as a struggle over his revolutionary legacy. And he outlines how the ruling clerical elite and the nation's security forces are interdependent politically and economically, speculating on the potential future role of the Revolutionary Guards. Bringing the work up to current political events, Arjomand analyzes Iran's foreign policy as well, including the impact of the fall of Communism on Iran and Ahmadinejad's nuclear policy. Few countries loom larger in American foreign relations than Iran. In this rich and insightful account, an expert on Iranian society and politics untangles the complexities of a nation still riding the turbulent wake of one of history's great revolutions.
