This was three years before the (US-facilitated) Iranian Revolution and the installment of a theocratic constitution. (US-facilitated) my ass. Orchestrated on every level to attempt to thwart the Pahlavi's dedication for Iranians. Read more
The Baha’i cult should be put on trial for its lies and support of the war criminals Bab and Baha’i leader Baha’u’llah. Those that live in glass houses should not throw stones. The world is fed up with the lies of the Baha’i cult and their deliberate misinformation campaign designed to show a lovely peaceful face to this fake cult.
The forerunner to Baha’ism was a violent terrorist called the Bab. These are the Bab’s orders about killing all those that oppose him:
“Make everyone accept the [religion of] Bayān and do not accept from them jewels that would amount to the whole earth as payment so that they are excused from becoming Bābīs,” (The Bāb, Lauḥ haykal al-dīn, unit 5, chap. al-Lād)
“He who acquires a position of ruling is a manifestation of God’s wrath and if possible for him, must not leave [alive] on earth anyone but the Bābīs!” (The Bāb, Lauḥ haykal al-dīn, unit 4, chap. al-Bahā.)
Baha’i cult leader number two, Abdu’l-Baha, tells us in a nutshell what the laws of this terrorist were:
“The utterance of the [book or religion] of Bayān in the day of the appearance of his Highness A`lā (meaning the Bāb) was to behead, burn the books, destroy the monuments, and massacre [everyone] but those who believed [in the Bāb’s religion] and verified it,” (`Abdu’l-Bahā, Makātīb (Egypt: 1330 AH), vol. 2, p. 266)
Baha’u’llah the cult leader verified all these acts by stating that these orders are more dear to him than everything in the world:
“I [swear by] He who in His hand is my soul and my essence, a single letter from the Bayān is dearer to me than everything that is in the heavens and the earth,” (Asad-Allāh Fāḍil Māzandarānī, Asrār al-āthār khuṣūṣī, vol. 5, p. 333)
After collaboration in a failed assassination attempt against the Shah of Iran he was put on death row but freed by the insistence of Persia’s arch-enemy the Russian imperialist government who was waging a war against Iran. He was then exiled to Baghdad where he then continued the same violent actions and according to his own sister he and his followers engaged in a ruthless act of violence against those who opposed them:
“They gathered a group of hooligans from different provinces of Iran and from the same places fugitives who had never believed in any religion and had no faith in any prophet and had no work but manslaughter and had no occupation but stealing peoples’ property. Even though they claimed they were following [the customs] of Ḥusayn (the grandson of the Prophet Muḥammad who was ruthlessly murdered by Shimr on the orders of Yazīd) they summoned a group of Shimr-like people around themselves. The breath of any soul who uttered anything but what they were satisfied with was suffocated. They beat any head which made the slightest sound other than accepting their guardianship. They cut every throat which showed other than humbleness towards them. They pierced every heart which had love towards other than them,”( `Izziye Khānum (Khānum Buzurg), Tanbīh al-nā’imīn, pp. 11–12.)
He then gave glad-tidings to his followers about the violent Baha’i kingdom and eradication of deniers of Baha’ism:
“God will soon take out from the sleeves of power the hands of strength and dominance and will make the Servant (Bahā’u’llāh) victorious and will cleanse the earth from the filth of every rejected polytheist (deniers of Baha’ism). And they will stand by the cause and will conquer the lands using my mighty eternal name and will enter the lands and they will be feared by all the servants,” (Bahā’u’llāh, Āthār-i Qalam-i A`lā, vol. 2, no. 90, p. 587)
Once this happens and the universal Baha’i kingdom is established, the world should await a strict Baha’i Sharia law which according to the Baha’i holy book will see arsons being burned alive, thieves marked like cattle then kicked out of the cities and deprived of all rights:
“Should anyone intentionally destroy a house by fire, him also shall ye burn; should anyone deliberately take another’s life, him also shall ye put to death,” (Bahā’u’llāh, The Kitābi Aqdas, p. 203)
“Exile and imprisonment are decreed for the thief, and, on the third offence, place ye a mark upon his brow so that, thus identified, he may not be accepted in the cities of God and His countries,” Bahā’u’llāh, The Kitābi Aqdas, pp. 35–36.
Furthermore, the Baha’i administration is engaged in an active campaign of lies to play the victim and promote its cause. For instance the official website of the Baha’i cult states that 20,000 followers of Baha’u’llah have been killed in the 1800’s:
This is a blatant lie and they have admitted elsewhere that this number has no source and is not even related to Baha’i deaths, but rather Babi cult deaths, yet they refuse to remove the wrong fact from their website because it serves their purpose:
The world must act against this cult before it is too late.
You're nothing but a badly disguised mouth piece of Press TV and Hezbollah. Deep down all you want to do is to chant Marg bar Amrika, but you know it'll reveal your true self, so instead you take another pose. But posing is all you do, the "substance" is Hezbollah and Press TV. Read more
This Nuclear Negotiation Reveals the USA hand better than anything I have seen in Years. Even better than Reza Pahlavi calling for Democracy in Iran, at a time when the USA is doing everything in its power to oppose Democratic Governance in Iran and undermining his calls for democracy. The USA after all is supposedly is a supporter of Democracy for Iranians, yet it acts against the wishes of the Iranian People and against the Wishes of the people of most of the countries in the world.
Regardless of whether anyone believes the Iranian Nuclear Program is for Peaceful Purposes or not. No one in the world supports the Idea being Pursued by the P5+1
which is one Law for Iranians and another law for Americans, Brits, French, Russians, Germans, Chinese. One Exceptional law for Iranians and another for say Brazil is dishonest in spirit to say the least.
So long as the IRI Program does not deviate from Peaceful Purposes No One inside Iran or even in the west or anywhere in the world would support what the USA and P5+1 are attempting to achieve with the Hezbollahi Extremist Imposed at Gunpoint Government of Iran. To live by a unique set of laws.
With Iran, since the West says, they seek democracy for the people (yeah right), lets give it a go since maybe they really do want to listen to the will of the people, here it is in black and white. It is certainly clear that most Iranians would fully support a Military Nuclear Program so long as the USA, France, Russia, Pakistan, India, Russia, China all have active Military Nuclear Programs and the main reason is if only to be able to Defend themselves against Western Interference and Aggression of which there is a long History. Okay lets see if the voice of the people which most people can understand and agree on, has solved the problem with Democratic Systems. Read more
Those are nice pictures and she was beautiful, but I don't know about "breathtaking"! In fact, I didn't miss a breath...
I'm NOT Hezbollah, PressTV, stoning whatever, but you are a corporate tool in service of the rich and powerful and dedicated to enslavement, torture, rape, colonization, and destruction of every country that the West has sunk its teeth into!
I'm pretty sure someone could think of something positive to say about Stalin, IRI, the Fascists, Chairman Mao, etc. The point is to ask if the positives are relevant when they left behind a trail of death and agony. There is plenty positive about US and but it takes more courage not to be a mouthpiece for Uncle Sam! Read more
Shame and guilty conscious are the kind of words you should refrain from using, you of all people.
If you don't care who and where I am, then, why would you look me up, I wonder! Involving our political agenda, you and I fly two different orbits, light years apart. Do not amuse yourself.
Oh, a little admonition, remove the "P" from your make believe last name and replace it with "F". Arabs don't have "P" in their alphabet.

The IRI was the natural progression of an anti-monarchy movement. The reason the IRI was DOA was because it was a movement that was developed against the Iranian Monarchy and therefore against the Freedom, Independence, Peace, Progress and Human Rights that the Monarchy Represented for the people. By definition this is what being anti-monarchy means, although we are not exactly expecting wisdom from the least intelligent among us who occupy the intellectual bottom of the barrell identifying with unproven idea's like communism.
The IRI's crisis of Legitimacy, was in the DNA of the IRI because it came about from an "ILLIGITIMATE" anti-monarchist movement and the reason for this illigitimate movement had a large part to do with on the one hand, the Understanding that was discovered by Iranian thinkers/experts in Iran that could see the fraud, despotism, tyranny and dictatorship at the very heart of "ALL" Democratic Systems, which have yet to show they can govern "the people" based on "the rule of law". Instead all that "the people" see from democratic systems is a system that specializes in "murdering the people" to pay the bills. So in exchange for everyday functioning during economic down turns.
On the other hand the reason we have today an IRI that as the article describes , "They treat opponents at home with cruelty and injustice." is in large part because of the criminal actions of both the USA and UK towards the Previous Government headed by the late Shah and the intentional criminal actions perpetrated by the west to deceive their own people and then our people, including using fabrication of information and successfully attempting to portray the Secret Service SAVAK as an organization that tortured Iranians, a king that excercised absolute power and was therefore a dictator (which was not lawfully possible due to the limitation on his powers by constitution, meanwhile there is not one single example that can be given where absolute power was used by the King), that the King acted like a criminal (and therefore we are told all his actions for rapid Iranian advancement, education, defense and hospitals were therefore psymptomatic of megalomania due to him being and acting like a criminal).
The Idiots that believed all this shows that infact Iran was in need of 1979. History has showed Iranians today, no lies and no fabrications could have been more gutless and disgusting as these. Much of the opposition to the shah in Iran was rooted in a MOTIVE and it was not as noble as the literature for the revolution shows, Infact the main driver and unconscious motivation the media used for 1979 was the greed of Iranians for money and wanting more for themselves, depite how much the king was providing many poverty minded Iranians were being made to think they were being cheated of wealth and needed to lie and steal and cheat against King and Country to get ahead. Hence 1979 in a nutshell.
The FACT OF THE MATTER IS THE USA DOES NOT WANT ANY NEGOTIATIONS OR AGREEMENT WITH ANY ONE IN NORTH AFRICA OR THE MIDDLE EAST. Not just the IRI.
THE SOLE AIM OF THE USA AND WESTERN EUROPE IS TO DESPOIL AND CRUSH THESE REGIONS AND THEIR INHABITANTS, REGARDLESS, EVERYTHING THEY ARE DOING IN EVERY COUNTRY IS WITH A VERY CONSCIOUS AND DEDICATED CAREFUL POLICY TO MURDER, THWART AND DESPOIL THESE REGIONS.
THE DIFFICULTY IS THAT EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE CAN SEE THAT EVERYTHING WE ARE PREDICTING IS INFACT OCCURING, JUST AS USA PLANS DETAIL Show, NO ONE CAN BRING THEMSELVES TO BELIEVE any of THIS, in large part because they/we are all to some degree victims of US Military Industrial Media complexes soft power / a hollywood that gives us "truth, justice and the american way, with superman, john wayne and the Beach boys on the one hand and as the system conceals the reality of the USA and the effective use and purpose of Hollywood itself in misleading masses.
As for most Iranians, the 99.9% who are not specialized in machiavellian despotism they will continue to remain blind and ignorant to what "Democratic Systems" have represented in "ALL CASES". Unless you are an expert in Tyranny, Extortion, Perpetual Dictatorship, Injustice, Corruption, Fraud and the details that keeps "democratic systems" functioning you won't grasp what democratic systems are about in practice.
Once you get "the people" to accept the idea of having many many choices, and making sure the choices are all based on manipulation, coercion and deceit, you are 90% of the way to perpetual darkness. The truth with Democratic Systems is they are far worse than not having any choice at all, except for the immense resources they are able to create off the backs of the people with out them knowing for what purpose these efforts are to be used. For sure we know they won't have either a say or an understanding of how the engine room seeks to use the resources in their hands.
The Good News is that for Iranians these dark days will pass and only to be like a dark season in Iranian history, An Experience that was infact necessary for the people to learn to use their god given wisdom and learn to rally around their own core principals rooted in the teachings of Zoroaster and against Frauds like Organized Religion. Iranians will one day soon be able to strengthen themselves from the sickening last 35 years of fraud and islamic perversity and despite the cruelty, manipulations and deceit they have suffered at the Islamic Frauds hands, the re-engagement with the Iranian Soul and Spirit will be all that is necessary for their safety and success.

I use my real name, but I also support posters who do not. As long as a commenter expresses his/her genuine opinion (or contradicting opinions) on an issue, I do not care how many aliases a particular person uses. A name (whether real or not) is just a label. It is useful only if it matters to the reader. As an analogy, you look for an apple not because of its name, but its ingredients. Then again, you also have different varieties of the same fruit.
Interestingly enough, a good portion of literature in most cultures is known by the pen names of their authors, not their real names. Furthermore, privacy is an integral part of freedom. An opinion is in effect a vote. So if the privacy of a vote is protected by the ballot box rules and regulations, an opinion can also be protected by a name of the author's choice. His/her opinion, nonetheless, counts.
There is a fine line between courage and stupidity and it is always overlapped.
Obviously, an author has the right to ignore a comment for any particular reason, but degrading a commenter for using a pen name is yet to be civilized in my opinion. Read more
Do you have proof that "millions" of Palestinians have been killed since 1948? Even one innocent human being killed is too many, no argument on that, but I bet Mullahs in Iran and Assad in Syria have killed more of their fellow Iranians and Syrians than Israelis have killed of Palestinians. And their regimes are 30 years younger than state of Israel. Read more
That would be the dumbest act possible for either the Israelis or the Americas and they know it so! Iran is not Iraq, it has a formidable military that are war hardened. It also, would be suicidal, geopolitically, in parallel to dumping fuel on fire! Solution is for US to stand up against Israel and do what they should have done long time ago...to be an unbiased mediator!!!
Let's NOT forget that Russia and China are waiting on the wings, ready to pick up the pieces! Read more
Octavian and Cleopatra"
"the famous story of Cleopatra’s suicide gets points for drama and crowd appeal: Her lover, Mark Antony, had been defeated in battle by Octavian and, hearing that Cleopatra had been killed, had stabbed himself in the stomach. Very much alive, after witnessing his death, the beautiful last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt pressed a deadly asp to her breast, taking her own life as well.." as it goes.

This sentence of the article: "Nothing happens in Iranian politics or governance, no matter how trivial, without Khamenei weighing in" reminds me of what Assadolah Alam had written about Shah in his memoir.
She has blended so well with environment and the spirit of the place.
