by Joel Rosenberg

Thirty years after the Revolution began -- and twenty years after the death of her husband -- the wife of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini has died at the age of 93, reports the Associated Press. Khadijeh Saqafi was known as the "mother of the Islamic revolution." She died Saturday in Tehran. "Thousands of people, including Iran's president and supreme leader, attended her funeral at Tehran University on Sunday," according to news reports.
