In his voluminous Life of Reason, American philosopher George Santayana famously says:
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
And it seems some Iranians are dead set to prove him right. Take for example the latest move by the Islamist Green movement and their opening a charlatan Ali Shariati chapter in France.
One does not have to do much reasearch to find out who charlatan Ali Shariati was, his influence on the fokoli Islamists and particularly the ones who made up the apparatchik corps of IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic. Almost all of the by now disgraced “reformist” Islamist Rapists are his ideological followers.
The current leader of the Islamist faction of the Green Movement, a two-term IRR Prime Minister, and his wife who keep saying they want to take Iran and Iranians back to the “Golden era of the Imam” meaning the mass murderer Khomeini, are ardent followers of the charlatan Ali Shariati.
In fact the ongoing turf war between the two Islamist Rapist gangs in Iran, the “reformers” versus the “Principlists” is nothing but ideological war between the two gangs. The “reformers” see the survival of IRR in following a cocktail of charlatan Ali Shariati mixed with mass murderer “Imam” Khomeini, and the “Principlists” see it in following “Imam” Khomeini straight up.
And now the overseas supporters of the Islamist Green Movement have announced their intention to open a “Dr. Ali Shariati chapter” in France to better support those goals of Mousavi and “Imam” Khomeini. There is no doubt these people are into proving “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
