"Ahmadinejad son accuses Hashemi of fabrication" (Mehr News)

This is a little heard to follow, but fascinating:
A son of Iran’s ex-president has accused Hashemi of inventing his memoirs of Imam Khomeini.

Mehr News quoted that Mehdi Ahmadinejad, ex-president’s son, on his webpage derided Hashemi’s account of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic and the first leader of the Revolution.

Mehdi Ahmadinejad posted on his webpage an evaluation of Hashemi’s memoirs where Hashemi Rafsanjani related that Imam (Khomeini) would seek to remove the motto of ‘death to America’ at that time.

“I would petition to the respected figure who said that Imam agreed to remove the motto, to say what he would remember about Imam, otherwise we would be told that Imam did not mean America was Great Satan, but he meant that ‘how mischievous child would America be!’

There is now a brisk drive for mushroom production in different parts of the country in hearty response to the appeal of the Party and large capacity mushroom farms and production bases are now under construction there, he said, adding that scientific research should be given precedence in order to put mushroom production on an industrial and scientific basis.

He underscored the need for the institute to study and round off varieties of edible and medical mushroom growing technologies, intensify the work for solving the issue of substrate suited to the topographical peculiarities and satisfactorily produce and ensure spores necessary for mushroom growing.

He called on the officials and researchers of the institute to register shining scientific research successes and thus turn the institute into a scientific research center to bring substantial benefits to the people.

He noted with great satisfaction that this is the true nature of the revolutionary army and he felt proud of assigning the task to the People's Army. [...]
