His designated successor,
Ayatollah Hossein All Mon-
tazeri, was said to have
become disillusioned by the
extremism and incompetence
of the regime. After openly
criticizing Khomeini, he was
sacked last March, an act
that is widely believed to
have been engineered by Kho-
meini's son, Ahmed, who is

said to have written the
notice of dismissal in his own
hand.
Outgoing President Ali
Khameini (no relation) is
slated to step into the void, a
move that will strengthen the
claims of Ali Akhbar
Hashemi Rafsanjani, speaker
of the Iranian parliament and
head of the Iranian armed
forces.
Rafsanjani was Khomeini's
point man in the Iran-Contra
scandal and is regarded as
something of an enlightened
pragmatist in a sea of
theological purity.
Observers, however, caution
against rising expectations
that Rafsanjani will guide
Iran toward moderation and
an accommodation with the
United States: "He didn't get
where he is by being a
Western liberal," noted one
diplomatic source.

Nor is that likely to be the
end of the story. Another
leading contender for leader-
ship is none other than Ahm-
ed Khomeini, son of the
ayatollah. He is understood to
have accumulated con-
siderable power as the "eyes
and ears" of his father and is
anxious to perpetuate the
family dynasty.
Yet other candidates may
yet enter the contest for suc-
cession for the hearts and
minds of the Iranian people,
and it is likely to be a bloody,
protracted affair.
Will the Islamic revolution
survive Khomeini? Experts
are cautious about commit-
ting themselves, but the
general view is that it cannot.
The Iranian revolution,
they say, bore the unique im-
print of Ayatollah Khomeini
and was held together by the
sheer force of his immense
personality, prestige and
power, by his unrivalled
religious authority and by his
fancy political foot work. No
successor, designated or not,
is likely to be capable of in-
heriting that mantle.
Western leaders who are
desperately attempting to
determine the future course
of this strategically impor-
tant, unpredictable republic
may draw a crumb of comfort
from the knowledge that the
brooding, mesmerizing Kho-
meini was almost certainly
pondering the same question
himself as the end approach-

Bishops' Statement
Is Called Biased

Montreal (JTA) — The
Canadian Conference of
Catholic Bishops has been
acused of bias by the Cana-
dian Jewish Congress for a re-
cent statement that in its ti-
tle urges recognition of "The
Rights of the Palestinian Peo-
ple."
The bishops' statement,
signed by Archbishop James
Hayes of Halifax, president of
the conference, urges talks
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization as a means to
try to solve the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict.
It urges Ottawa "to foster
all of the diplomatic steps
likely to lead to a solution to
the conflict, including talks
with the PLO, and to urge the
