How did Ayotalloh Khomeini gain power?

The Ayatollah had a long period of dissidence with the Shah of Iran. He objected to what he believed was the Shahâ??s departure from Islamic law and his acceptance of western standards that would, he believed, result in an influx and eventual takeover by BaHa'i culture. Their relationship deteriorated to the point of the Ayatollah being exiled to Paris. Efforts to discredit Khomeini, as well as other student grievances, brought about the revolution of 1978. The Ayatollah returned to Tehran and engaged in resistance efforts, such as encouraging all to violate a military mandated curfew After the military withdrew, an Islamic government was approved by widespread demand and Khomeini became the Supreme Leader in 1979.

Why do you think okonkwo wasted his life in exile?

Okonkwo was exiled seven years for accidentally killing a fellow clan member. For those seven years he moved through his daily practices with no real purpose. He basically sat around waiting to return to his father's land. He felt useless in his mothers clan; he did not try to earn a place of respect among them. Most of the time he was just feeling sorry for himself. He made plans what he would do when he arrived back, but he did nothing of value where he was.

Which exiled religious leader led the religious opposition to western influences in Iran?

No one - Ayatollah Khomeini had VERY DIFFERENT ideals to the regime set up that used his name (we must remember, Khomeini was very poorly healthwise by the 1980s and a lot of things were done in his name that he would not approve), he was exiled in France (the West) and his pre-revolutionary tapes did not feature anti-Western culture propaganda or repression. In fact, the original ideas of those who lead the revolution inclusive of Khomeini favoured a French style republic. The real (much more moderate Khomeini) and the popular image (an image largely forged by those who spoke in his name when Khomeini himself was sick) are very different. If Khomeini had good health, Iran would be very different today.
