Because it attaches the adjective “Islamic” to all its organs and whatever action it takes, the Khomeinist regime in Iran is often described as a theocracy with Shi’ism as an ideological backbone. However, what if the adjective is misplaced, not to say misleading? What if specialists have failed to note the underlying current of tension between the Islamic Republic as a political construct and traditional structures of Shi’ism?
