Sha’aban Jafari, [Bimokh – Brainless] 1921 – 2006 But he lives in spirit in many of Monarchy supporters.
Two words that some times are used synonymously in Iranian Urban dictionary are Jahel[literally translated as uneducated] and Laat[hooligan, Ruffians] though both represent two different subculture that still exists in Iran.
A Jahel represented the ultimate in Iranian machismo, Iranian [mardanegi], or “manliness,” in an overtly macho culture. They lived by certain code of conduct. Even though they gave into certain vices of life, such as alcohol, womanizing and even patronizing with prostitutes, but in general they were law abiding, often religious and family oriented people.
A Laat in contrast were groups of knife wielding petty criminal gangsters who made their living by trafficking in elicit drug, larceny, theft, pick pocketing, prostitution, extortion, burglary pedophile, child molestation and all sorts of criminal acts.
Sha’aban Jafari[Bimokh] was a LAAT, Born in 1921 to a religious family, came to fame in the summer of 1953 when he was hired by the CIA covert operation code name Operation Ajax, under direct orders of President Eisenhower to topple democratically elected government of Dr. Mosaddeq. What is ironic about this Laat, that before he sold his soul [that is if he ever had any] he was allegedly a pro Mosaddeq element.
Sha’ban Bimokh and his hired mercenaries [with the money provided by CIA] were able to successfully counter the uprising in the streets of Tehran by brutally and mercilessly beating any anti-Shah demonstrators they came across. Being the LAATs they were, the weapon of choice was knives, machetes, clubs and such.
At one point, Sha’aban Jafari PERSONALLY, viciously and with ever so animallike savagery stabbed Dr. Fatemi, close confidant and compatriot of Dr. Mosaddeq and a true patriot to constitution of Iran, while Dr. Fatemi’s hands were tide behind his back by Shah Pahlavi’s own dreaded security Gestapo called SAVAK.
The focal point of this thread is not to revisit the bloody 1953 coup and the treacherous betrayal by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the late and last monarch of Iran, but it is to demonstrate while Sha’aban Jafarie’s are dead but their spirits live today in many of Monarchy supports.
Tactics and means might have change, after all this is the age of information’s system, black berries and online publications, unlike the 1953’s where the the tool of the trade these people[Monarchist] employed were knives and machetes . Now a days, supporters of Monarchy, just like their predecessors Sha’aban Bimokhs, resort to intimidation, censorship, spamming, trolling, word policing and personal attacks against anyone who does see the world through their monarchy prism.
Shameful absurdity of the charade this group [Monarchist] conducts is where they, including their leader Reza Pahlavi, claim to be supporters of democracy, human rights and freedom of speech.
