Khomeinism is a republican, fundamentalist variant of Shia Theocracy. It seeks to revolt & establish sharia law. It derives itself from Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. It is economically center-left or third positionist. Notably, it is the governing ideology of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the ideology of the militant Lebanese political party Hezbollah.
Khomeinism is a radical Shi’a Islamist ideology that fuses religion & governance, utilizing the principle of velayat-e faqih (guardianship of the Islamic jurist) to endow a learned Islamic jurist with the role of supreme leader who holds final religious & political authority over all affairs of state. Under Iran’s revolutionary system, velayat-e faqih is invoked to demand loyalty to & justify the authoritarian role of the supreme leader based on divine right. This was an uncompromising stance. There is evidence to suggest Khomeini’s revolutionaries murdered the competition in the lead-up to the Islamic Revolution, specifically Imam Musa al-Sadr, who advocated for a more traditional clerical role. Despite those socially far-right beliefs, it is economically center-left or Third Positionist, though its economic views are mostly sidelined compared to its governmental or social views.
Khomeinism was created in Iran when Ayatollah Khomeini overthrew the Iranian government in 1979.
In the Levant, Khomeinism cemented its place when Ayatollah Khomeini & Abbas al-Mussawi created Hezbollah in the 1980's in Lebanon in response to Israel invading Lebanon. Hezbollah has a staunch Khomeinist doctrine.
In 2014, Yemen broke out into a full civil war between the Yemeni Government, The Houthis (Led by Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi), & Daesh. The Houthis wish to defeat the Yemeni Government & Daesh then establish a Khomeinist government in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia & Qatar had small Khomeinist movements in the 1980's that ultimately went no where & Iraq has large Khomeinist movements to this day due to the fall of Saddam.
Khomeinism is usually portrayed as a fundamentalist, modern Shia Muslim. He enforces ideas of women wearing veils, anti- LGBT, anti-Americanism (The United States is still frequently referred to as the " Great Satan"), & other Shia Islamic characteristics. He's difficult to be friends with but, he'll work with shia moderates (& occasionally even non-Muslims) for strategic purposes (especially if it's in opposition to America). Khomeinism has an extreme commitment to erasing the entity of Israel. Khomeinism believes that the only way to free Palestine is through resistance & Intifada & establishing a Shia republic in Palestine.
