It says something about the chaotic state of Iran's ruling elite that the grandson of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the regime's founding father, should find himself being booed and jeered by the government's supporters.
After all the suffering that followers of Iran's opposition Green Movement have experienced since they had the temerity to challenge the outcome of last June's presidential election, it would be perfectly understandable if they had decided to vent their feelings on Hassan Khomeini as he addressed a rally to mark the 21st anniversary of his grandfather's death in Tehran earlier this week.
