A major speaker at the rally was
Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, a close
associate of Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini, Iran's spiritual leader. Raf-
sanjani is reputed to be a member of
the Islamic Revolutionary Council, a
secret body that exercises the highest
authority in the nation.
THE HANDS of U.S. senators "are
stained with the blood of peoples in
South Africa, Vietnam and hundreds of
other places around the world," he
Rafeanjani called both the United
States and Soviet Union murderers,
saying, "Americans helped killers here
in Iran. The Russians have helped the
Afghanis kill the Moslem people."
Iran's revolutionary regime has been
hostile to the Soviet-backed Afghani
government, which is attempting to
put down insurrections by Moslem
ANTI-AMERICAN sentiment surged
in Iran following a Senate resolution
last week sponsored by Sen. Jacob
Javits (R-N.Y.) that warned of a
deterioration in U.S.-Iranian ties unless
the executions abated.
There was no indication whether the
anti-American mood would spill over
into other actions against the United
States. There has been no immediate
effect on U.S. citizens in the coun-
try-about 1,500 are here now-or on
American business interests which are
slowly returning.
The deaths brought to 222 the number
of known executions by revolutionary
tribunals since Khomeini's forces
ousted the monarchy in February.
