Rafsanjani: I wanted to kiss the Imam's dry, shriveled
From Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani's diaries serialized in Shargh newspaper
in Iran and reproduced in Baztab.com:
Khordad 3 (24 May 1989): I left at 9 am to visit the Imam (Khomeini)
at the hospital. I saw him for a few minutes. He's improving. I
spoke a few words. He said he had a little bit of pain. I put my
hand slowly on the Imam's hand. It was hot; the heat warmed my
entire body. My love for the Imam made me restless. I wanted to
kiss the Imam's dry, shriveled lips. I felt shame. I put my lips
on a hairless part of his head where it was also hot and moist.
Without thinking, I licked off some of the moisture. The Imam rewarded
me by pressing my thumb in his hand. The doctors expressed satisfaction..
