Revolutionaries Defined by Similarities?

Caught in a torrid twist of maligned historical detail... Certain Student groups of Tehran might (instead) have chosen to do their homework; as they professed mutual alliance with the "religious inspired commonality" of Che Guevara...

Touting the parallels of Iran’s Islamist revolution, with the socialist revolution in Latin America (having fought side-by-side) ...The Iranian students won no heart and minds of the son & daughter of Argentine revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara!
According to the following article, Che was a devout atheist, amidst belief in socialism (considered a crime in the Islamic state) & punishable by death!
POLITICS-IRAN: Islamist, Socialist Revolutions Don't Mix

As it were, the student organized 'Che Like Chamran' conference was aborted as Latin American guests were whisked away... And any similarities of Revolutionary alliance ended there...
(no matter what organizers intended to promote.) #

Aleida Guevara, daughter of Che, was said to have protested from the podium against perceived distortions of her father’s ideology by Iranian speaker, Haj Saeed Ghasemi (on the 4-day conference; started on 9/25 )
"My father never talked about God. He never met God. My father knew there was no absolute truth,’’ Aleida said, responding to Ghasemi’s speech." read more

But as with most interviews of Iran; the coverage of her address by a state-sponsored news agency; was brief and excluded most of her contradictory remarks.
A leftist student activist said:
"Ahmadinejad’s slogans against the West and the U.S., his pro-justice rap, and his promises of economic assistance bring them here -- much to our disappointment...
"Daniel Ortega and other leftist leaders too must
clarify their position about their relations with Iran."

"We feel greatly betrayed when for their countries’ economic benefit they choose to support extreme rightists, fascists like Ahmadinejad," she added.

I'll clarify the position concerning relations with Iran, for you...
A little sample (below) of the fruits of Iran's intervention; presently in one of three other countries, as they fight for primacy. That ought to give you the proposed direction!

NOTE: Chamran, a United States-educated engineer and Islamist, helped Mousa Sadr found the Amal Movement in southern Lebanon and fought alongside Amal guerrillas in the late 1970s. Appointed the young Islamic Republic’s defense minister by Ayatollah Khomeini, Chamran organized and led paramilitary forces during the early phase of the Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988) and was killed in battle in the Khuzistan province in 1981.
