Geert Wilders "Fitna"

This short 15 minute movie on Islam (koran) is not revolutionary per se as it's basically a collage of clips from MEMRI, however the more important contribution that this film offers the free world and the world public is enhanced publicity and awareness on this ideology from the deserts of Arabia. What everyone should be very clear about is that there is but one true Islam and that is the one prescribed in the koran - so opting to use terms such as "moderate muslims" or "peaceful muslims" is grossly misleading the public. The founder of Islam intended people to follow his ideology not to pick and chose things they like about it and still go about calling themselves muslims. Islam is an ideology, a set of inseparable thoughts, a world outlook which cannot be separated into bits and pieces that suites oneself. You do not sugar-coat a savage ideology by referring to those who don't follow it as "moderate muslims", technically they are not. And if they technically do not adhere to the prescribed muslim life then what is the point in calling yourself muslims in the first place? A man could drink, womanize and eat pork but still pray or perform certain islamic practices and still call himself muslim in that case! This obviously defeats the whole purpose in being a muslim! (the same goes for any other religion). Therefore it's very simple where we draw the line - you either fully follow the koran and thus are a muslim or you don't and you aren't - this clear distinction needs to be understood fully by all the millions of "false muslims" who only refer to themselves as "muslim" simply because it was passed on to the by their fathers or because they have picked and chosen what they like.

Well done to Geert Wilders who went ahead with this project knowing full well that muslims will be thirsting for his blood! (and when i use the term muslim I mean it in its true sense and not the false and misleading politically correct one)

Also on the topic I came across this other clip on my friend Winston's blog (again note the speaker still doesn't go all the way in that he still wrongly opts to use the term "radical muslims" when there is only one kind of muslims, other than that I fully agree with his sentiments):

UPDATE 1: Well as those of you who are trying to access the liveleak link will see - the staff at this hosting website have received numerous death threats by muslims and have had to surrender to these terrorist threats. The links to the movie are still up on YouTube which you can access from the below links:

Qadissiya - 1368 Years Later - Iran's real day of mourning

Commemoration of Battle of Qadissiya - 1368 years later

Derafsh Kaviani

To all true Iranians:

Feb 19 is the commemoration day of the start of the battle of Qaddissiya.
Qadissiya battle started on Monday February 19, 636(A.D) and lasted for four(4) days.

On the flat plains near the Euphrates river in modern Iraq between Kufa and abu sukheir.

The Sassanian army under the command of Lt. General Rostam-e-farokzad(In Pahlavi- Eran- Sepah-bod) and the Arab army of caliph Omar under the command of Sa'd ibn Abi waqqas clashed.

Many Iranians fought bravely and died( more than30,000 dead) in this battle trying to defend Iran from the nomadic Arabs attempting to convert Iranians to their Islamic religion.

At the end of the battle Lt. Gen Rostam was killed and the national flag (Darfash-e-Kavian) was captured by the Arab nomads.

This flag was taken to Caliph Omar who promptly removed all of the magnificent jewels set on it and then ordered it to be burned.

After the battle the Arabs went to the capital Ctesiphone, the glorious capital of Sasanian empire and the largest city in the world at that time, the city was invaded, sacked, and functionally destroyed by the armies of Islam.

The great Carpet of BAHARESTAN, woven with threads of gold and silver in the great arched hall of the palace of Ctesiphone was cut up by the Arab nomads and distributed as war booty.

Note:- this looting is still going on 1368 years later.

Gondi Shapour university and library were destroyed and its books were burned by the invaders. Most of Sasanian records and literary works were destroyed.

This day Feb 19 should be commemorated by all Iranians nationally and internationally.

This is our real national "Ashura" not the one the Mullahs force us to commemorate.

Instead of going on a pilgrimage to Mecca and Karbla we should all go to Qaddissiya to remind ourselves of the truth of what has happened to us over the past 1368 years.

It is our duty to inform the world as well as remind the Arab world itself of their crimes and barbaric behaviour against the people of Iran during this period.

Arabs should be reminded of their massacres of Iranians in the city of Estakher and other areas.

They should be reminded of their racist policies and their looting, pillaging, raping and abuse of Iran and its people for the 200 years of their rule.

We should do our utmost to ensure that it will never happen again.

In memory of the fallen of battles of Qadissyia and Nahavand.

Payandeh Iran


Commentary by "AmirN":

It is by forgetting our real history that we have allowed Islam to continue to strangle our country. Any Iranian who chooses to follow the bogus religion of the Arab pirates of the desert must question whether he or she is true to Iran.

By forgetting or neglecting Iran's history we only bring shame to the memory of our forefathers and to ourselves. We bring shame to the great nation of Iran.

I will now leave you with a few verses from Persian's Poetic Past:

The sands of time have always known
That civilization which has grown
In that plateau we call Iran
Land of the lion, land of the sun

Kourosh brought unmatched glory
Dariush’s Persepolis told the lasting story
Strength came from tolerance and freedom
Justice and nobility flourished in this kingdom

The greatest empire ever seen
Their lasting legacy was unforeseen
Masters of the world
The Persians’ achievements must be told

Wise words of Kourosh, baked on a cylinder of clay
Respected foreign cultures, and their right to freely pray
Women were respected, and slavery abolished
Kourosh was Great, for the human rights he polished

To conquer foreign lands requires minimal exertion
But to unite an empire, is a remarkable contention
Always building and improving, and never standing still
Dariush was Great, for his administrative skill

The Royal Road, with Sardis at the end and Shooshan at the start
Was an awe of transportation, connecting Persia’s heart
Who carved the Suez Canal, giving commerce speedy wings?
King Dariush, son of Hystaspes, an Achaemenid, the King of Kings

The father, with passion and pride, passed to his son
His love of law, beauty, architecture, and care of Iran
Dariush began building, but Xashayar finished these perfections
Xashayar was Great, for his magnificent creations

And what of Marathon, Thermopylae, and Salamis?
Did the Greeks truly receive such bliss?
Herodotus embellished, told lies for the West
For the Persians, these were skirmishes at best

But every golden era must someday end
So too Achaemanesh’s dynasty would bend
Alexander’s army won, but could not see
Win or lose, Persians’ hearts always stay free

Revenge, envy, and wine made Alexander yearn
The pride of Persia, Persepolis, to burn
The labor of years, by a thousand artisans employed
Took one lunatic one night, for this jewel to be destroyed

Greatness comes, from a worthy contribution
To humanity, to art, to law, or a scientific institution
Those who burn and loot deserve our hate
So answer this, was Alexander truly Great?

Now who were the barbarians, the Persians or the Greeks?
Our lowest troughs, still higher than their highest peaks
The art of empire, the Greeks could never master
Constant feuding and civil wars, left Greece in a disaster

Parthians picked up the torch of our land
Put Iranian rule back in Iranian hand
They showed Greece and Rome, to name just two
That Iran possesses great horses, and great men too

Like a Phoenix, from the ashes rising
The Sassanians arrived, with Iran reorganizing
Power, wealth, and wisdom again flourished
The rule of Ardeshir, Shapur, and Khosro let Iran be nourished

Life was based on three simple needs
Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds
Monotheist religion, for all its evil and its good
Came from Iran, from where Zarathustra stood

Rome, for all its power and its legions
Couldn’t touch Iran’s vast regions
Many times Rome tried but failed
Every time cataphract armor thundered and hailed

But Sassanian wealth and beauty caught the eye
Of a desert tribe, whose religion was a lie
Like desert snakes, they ruthlessly attacked
Until beautiful Ctesiphone was sacked

Rostam-e-Farokhzad, the brave and capable general
Fought till the end, though his wounds were several
At Qaddissiya, he came to Iran’s defense
Alas, the Taazi army was too dense

With coercion and the sword
Islam was able to spread its word
A dark and sinister force was born
That to this day brings Iran much scorn

Some to India had to flee
Iran’s destruction was unbearable to see
Parsees, they are called to this day
Ahura Mazda, with them will always stay

But Iranian roots are strong and hard to kill
Iran was freed again, with such a thrill
The Saffarids would answer the nation’s call
To make Arab tyranny shamefully fall

Don’t mourn the Ashura, weep a Taazi’s death
Hassan and Hossein were foreigners, who weakened Iran’s breath
If mourn you must, then mourn, a national event
Like Gaugamela, or Qaddissiya, places of great lament

While Europe was stagnant in its Dark Ages
Persian scholars thrived, free from mental cages
From algebra, to astronomy, and architecture
Persians wrote the book, and gave the lecture

A time of great Persian thinkers had emerged
Where poetry and science, love and knowledge, easily verged
Saadi, Hafez, Rumi, Omar Khayam to name a few
Thanks to them, humanity exponentially grew

Arabs from time to time, try to falsely claim
These brilliant men, and their golden works of fame
Dream on, Taazi, and of this be sure:
These men were always Persian, and completely pure

Who could forget Ferdowsi, the greatest poet ever?
He gave us Sam, Zal, and Rostam, heroes both brave and clever
The Persian language, so eloquently resurrected
As The Shahnameh was written with all Arabic words neglected

Many other invaders would come again, much the same
From Genghis Khan to Teimur the Lame
They would loot, burn, and murder
The cities too proud to surrender

Though Turks and Mongols had military strength
They were lacking in cultural length
The Persian culture was too rich, to be absorbed into theirs
Instead they settled in Iran, and joined her proud heirs

It’s clear from this short and simple recap
That Iran had its share of glory, as well as mishap
Our generation is unfortunate, assigned the station
Of another dark chapter, in the book of our nation

Once again Zahak is in power
His snakes consume and poison every flower
He uses religion and superstition
To enforce his selfish and malicious mission

So once more dust off the Kaviyani banner
And fly it high, in a proud and fitting manner
Zahak and his snakes will die once more
And our nation we shall yet restore

Arabs, pack your camels, and form a line
Leave this land, let the lion roar, let the sun shine
Or get thrown out, by Kaveh, and his noble flame
Return to the desert sands, from whence you once came

Iran in its infancy reached the sky
Will faravahar’s wings expand, will Iran soar that high?
Just lift the veil, you’ll surely see
Iran’s brightest days lie ahead, when the Aryans are again free

Those who know not their history are deaf to the past, mute to the present, and blind to the future

UK/US involvement in the overthrow of the late Shah of Iran

Shirin Neshat: 22 Bahman 1357 (February 11, 1979)
What It Meant Then and What It Means Now

February 8th, 2006

To The People of a Future Free Iran and to the Entire World

22 Bahman 1357 (February 11, 1979) must be marked as the darkest day in the history of the Iranian nation. The return of Khomeini to Iran from France on that ignominious day in history launched the manifestation of a demonic evil upon the land that continues to eradicate human rights and to murder the innocent with apparent impunity. My father, General Ali Neshat, the Supreme Commander of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi's Imperial Guard, was martyred on April 10, 1979. He was not the first patriot to give his life for a Free Iran. Neither will he be the last.

The story of some of the brave pilots of the Imperial Iranian Air Force (IIAF) who refused to bend the knee to Khomeini and his cabal of Mullahs is worth retelling to a new generation of young Iranians not yet born when the malignancy of the Islamic Revolution first began, and for the world at large. One may access part of this story at This moving testimony must be read as an eternal testament to a patriotic resistance unto death to the parasitic criminals of theocratic fanaticism who worked to destroy the 2500 year Persian Monarchy, the human rights of the average Iranian, and any principled opposition to their Reign of Terror. The public record of the laundry-list of the crimes of the Islamic Republic in Iran (IRI) regime in the years which followed this initial principled resistance to their tyrannies, is simply too voluminous to recount here. A simple look at their outlandish thievery at the expense of the Persian Nation, recently published by Iran Focus at is entitled, "Iran's Rulers Amass Fortunes Through Sleaze." It summarizes what was stolen from the Iranian people over a quarter of a century ago on 22 Bahman 1357. And as we approach the 27th anniversary of this unspeakable tragedy, may we be recommitted to the recovery of the Iranian Nation from this turbaned cabal, even as we are sworn under solemn oath before God to never again experience what Islamic theocracy has wrought in the homes and communities of the Land of King Cyrus the Great.

It is essential that Iranians and Westerners learn the truth about Khomeini, Khamenei, and Company. These Mullahs were brought to power by sinister forces in the Western World, specifically identified today by William Bowles in Countercurrents at This record of betrayal must be repeated and retold. It can never be forgotten. The historical responsibility for this horror must be chronicled for eternity past. When understood in its proper context, decent Americans and Europeans will recognize their moral imperative to support freedom-loving Iranians around the world in the achievement of victory over the Mullahs, and the reclamation of their homeland in this righteous struggle with radical evil.

It is a story that shadowy Western political and economic elites do not want their people to read, to hear, or to act upon.

Who are the forces cited by Mr. Bowles?
His article today states the following:

By 1978 Iran had the fourth largest nuclear power programme in the world and the largest by far among Third World nations. The [then] Shah's plan called for the installation of 20 nuclear power reactors by 1995, to provide some 23,000 megawatts of electricity. The Shah saw nuclear electricity as the rational means to diversify Iran's dependence on petroleum, and as a means to counter the enormous pressure from Washington and London to recycle his petrodollars to New York and London banks.

The contracts were made not with US corporations but with German and French companies, and the US government which up until this time had been the Shah's main backer and had installed him following the US/UK overthrow of the anti-US Mossadegh government, did everything in its power to try and block the deals, not surprising considering the role of Iranian oil in the US economy and continuing the hegemony of the petro-dollar. [Note: This mention of the US and UK overthrowing Mossadegh is a false one which I have addressed before SEE HERE] We must not lose sight of the fact that since the late 19th century, Iran's vast oil reserves, at first the exclusive domain of British imperialism and its joint government-business owned company, British Petroleum, and later the US when it took over the reigns of empire, has been the major motivating force behind Anglo-US machinations in the region.

The question to ask is why the Shah Pahlavi should have fallen out of favour with his Anglo-US sponsors? To answer this question we have to look at the central role of the petro-dollar in propping up Anglo-US imperialism.

There is no doubt that the US and the UK were behind the removal of the Shah. The problem for the US/UK was that the leading force inside Iran working to remove the Shah were progressives, led largely by the Iranian Socialist Workers Party. Therefore, in November 1978, President Carter named the Bilderberg group's George Ball, another member of the Trilateral Commission, to head a special White House Iran task force under the National Security Council's Brzezinski. Ball recommended that Washington drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the fundamentalist Islamic opposition of Ayotollah Khomeini.

Their scheme was based on a detailed study of the phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalism, as presented by British Islamic expert, Dr. Bernard Lewis. Lewis' scheme was unveiled at the May 1979 Bilderberg meeting in Austria, endorsed the radical Muslim Brotherhood movement behind Khomeini, in order to promote balkanisation of the entire Muslim Near East along tribal and religious lines. The chaos would spread in what he termed an "Arc of Crisis" which would spill over into the Muslim regions of the Soviet Union.

The coup against the Shah, like that against Mossadegh in 1953, was run by British and American intelligence, with the bombastic American, Brzezinski, taking public "credit" for getting rid of the "corrupt" Shah, while the British characteristically remained safely in the background.

The major reason for removing the Shah was the oil. During 1978 negotiations were underway between British Petroleum and the Shah to renew the 25-year old extraction contract, negotiations which collapsed and with the collapse, Iran was for the first time since 1953, once more in control of its oil resources. Cross the imperium and experience their wrath.

In September 1978, the Iranian publication Kayhan International stated in its editorial:

"In retrospect, the 25-year partnership the [British Petroleum] consortium and the 50-year relationship with British Petroleum which preceded it, have not been satisfactory ones for Iran. Looking to the future, NIOC [National Iranian Oil Company] should plan to handle all operations by itself."

"The British retaliated by cutting the amount of oil they bought from Iran by 2 million barrels a day. At the same time it is alleged that British Petroleum was organising capital flight from the country and the BBC, through its Farsi service, gave Ayotollah Khomeini a major propaganda platform. The Iranian economy was in dire straights and in January 1979, the Shah went into exile and in February the Ayotollah was flown in from exile in Paris. In May 1979 Khomeini cancelled the nuclear power programme."

"As a result Iran was once more totally dependent on the sale of oil to the West, for what was and still is, at stake here, is the right of developing countries to pursue an independent course."

Now, in the aftermath of the evil unleashed upon Iran and the world on 22 Bahman 1357, which resulted in the horrors of the 8 year Iran-Iraq War beginning in Shahrivar 1359 (September 1980)--and every horror of the IRI regime thereafter--we see the road of Iranian history in the last 27 years strewn with the body and blood of the innocent and the defenseless. How many more will die in our Nation--and around the world--at the hands of the Mullahs, Mr. Ahmadinejad, Mr. Khamenei, and the unseen actors in the international shadows who support these murderers for their own purposes, and who have nothing in common with the peace-loving and the law-abiding, either in Iran or on the entire planet?

One thing is sure on this night that I write this message from the City of the Angels in Southern California. A cosmic struggle with evil is coming. And as surely as the sovereign God of history controls the times and the seasons--and deposes despots and vindicates the innocent--I can assure you of yet another great truth:

Those of us who oppose evil in this coming cosmic struggle will win. Join us and help us, in any way you can, wherever you may be in this present moment in time.

Dr Manouchehr Farhangi assassinated in Spain

My friend Arvin Khoshnood reports that Iranian businessman and philanthropist, Manouchehr Farhangi, has been stabbed to death outside his home in Spain. Mr Farhangi was an Iranian zoroastrian and monarchist who supported various opposition groups against the occupational Islamic Republic through financial, political, and cultural support. Mr Farhangi founded the "International College of Spain" which today is a very prestigious academic institution.

This could be yet another assassination of an Iranian patriot abroad by the Islamic Republic's terror forces.

Condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr Farhangi whose new year had to begin in this tragic way.

UPDATE 2: Sarbaze Kuchak has translated a Spanish article on the assasination of Dr Farhangi which includes the prospect that this could have been a politically motivated murder by a supporter of the terrorist Islamic Republic occupying Iran.

Norooz - 2567 - Khojasteh Baad!

I couldn't find a better way to convey my best wishes to all true Iranians on the occasion of the Iranian New Year (persian: "Norooz") than our compatriot "GardunehMehr's" comments:

Spotlight: Houshang Ansari

Spotlight: Houshang Ansari

By: Sohrab Ferdows

William Sullivan in his book, "Mission to Iran" says, when in the year 1978 in a private party at his residence in Tehran, where a group of high ranking Iranian government officials, senators and MPs had attended, spoke about "time for changing things in Iran" all the guests spoke against it at the dinner table and defended how the Shah was handling everything greatly! Later when guests were leaving the house and Mr. Sullivan was accompanying them to the door one by one, many of the same people expressed their agreement with "need for change" privately and quietly at the door! From those, Sullivan remembers the first who expressed such agreement who was a high ranking officer in NIOC and held ministerial positions in the past, without mentioning his name. From description of course, no one fits such figure other than Hushang Ansary, head of NIOC in 1978 and former minister of economy and finance.

Later in the same year, the infamous "list" of names of the people who had taken money out of the country was secretly circulated by National Bank staff with the name of Mr. Ansary on top with the figure of $500 million! We now know that the list was wrong about many of the names mentioned in there but when we look at the financial activities of Mr. Ansary, one can not help but to remember the list! Mr. Hushang Ansary left the country a few months before revolution for "health" reasons when he went to visit Kharg island industrial and oil exporting facilities. Mr. Ansary moved to United States quietly and kept low key for a couple of years until he started his activities in 1982 by creating an investment consultant company named Parman Capital Group, along with Mr. Hassan-Ali Mehran the former Iranian National Bank director, with $5 million initial investment.

A few years later In 1987, Parman Group took over "Banco di Caribe" with total asset of about $500 million. And a bit later Mr. Ansary also became the biggest sharholder in Texa-based National Oilwell Inc which had close to $3 billion revenue in year 2007. Later on, National Oilwell Inc was merged with IRI International Corp. which Mr. Ansary and family (Hushang, Shahla, Nina and Nader Ansary) own over 90% of its shares currently. A look at some of National Oilwell trades with the symbol of NOV (NYSE) indicates the volume of wealth which is toyed with by Mr. Ansary in stock market in recent years:

Stewart & Stevenson LLC is another oil related company of Mr. Ansary with close to $1 billion in revenue in year 2006. There is a long list of huge investments and "charity" works ($15 million grant to Weill Cornell Medical College for stem cell research is one of them) in variety of fields in United States which range from education to medial centers, to highly specialized services in oil industry and....etc... etc... Mr. Ansary is also a trustee for Asia Society, a "non-profit" institution which has been founded by and in operation under leadership of Rockefellers since 1956. Ansary family have been very good friends with Bush Family since the time they moved to United States and resided in Texas in year 1979. The friendship is so close that at this point, Mr. Ansary is CEO of Bush family trust fund while continuing to maintain very close relationship. Mr. Ansary has also had many generous contributions to presidential campaign for George Bush sr., George Bush jr. and other republican party candidates for the House and Senate.

In most of these investments, we can see some familiar names of American famous politicians as Mr. Ansary's partners. Mr. Ansary has a daughter named "Nina" and a son named "Nader" who both have been given extensive amount of wealth and investment by their good father! Nina Ansary is also a share holder in some of the companies belonging to her father and at the same time running a political organization in the name of Iranians in United States!

The name of this political organization is "Iranian American Political Action Committee" which in their website declare their mission as follows:
· To support and promote the election of candidates for federal, state and local office, regardless of party affiliation who are attuned to the domestic needs and issues of the Iranian American community
· To support and promote Iranian American candidates for public office
· To support and advance legislation as it affects the concerns of the Iranian American community
· To encourage Iranian Americans to actively participate in the American electoral process
Under FAQ, they make it clear to have no affiliation with Islamic Republic regime and they do not take any position towards US-Iranian relation because it creates division in Iranian community. According to same document, the reason for creating "Iranian-American PAC" is to fill the vacume of Iranians achievents in the political arena of the United States through financial contributions and supporting Iranian candidates as "The reality of the American political system is that it is dependent on financial contributions".

In another part regarding 2008 US presidential candidates we read:
"IAPAC is a registered bipartisan political action committee that contributes to candidates for public office. IAPAC focuses exclusively on domestic policy issues, such as civil liberties and immigration, and encourages Americans of Iranian descent to actively participate in civic affairs. As a bipartisan organization, IAPAC does not endorse one presidential candidate over another. Instead it focuses on providing information concerning candidate positions on relevant issues affecting the Iranian American community and on harnessing community efforts to support candidates of their own choosing. "
In the news section we read:
"IAPAC Trustee to Serve as National Finance Chair for Clinton Campaign".
IAPAC Trustee is no one other than Mr. Hassan Namazee who has been also working with John Kerry in 2004 presidential campaign and during President Clinton, he was nominated to become ambassador of United States in Argentina but was declined by the Senate. In year 2004 and during his controversial quarrel with SMCCDI and Mr. Pirooznia, an article appeared in FrontPage Magazine about Mr. Namazee which included some information regarding his connections to different political organizations and lobbying groups. In a part of that article we read:
"Nemazee is an influential figure with many friends in high places in groups such as the American-Iranian Council (AIC), the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), and the Iranian-American Bar Association (IABA). Nemazee’s name is also well known in Democratic Party circles. He was a prominent contributor to Bob Torricelli’s New Jersey Senate campaign. The multimillionaire entrepreneur also contributed $50,000 to his friend Al Gore’s Recount Fund (and $250,000 to the Gore campaign), $60,000 to Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund, and over $150,000 to the Democratic National Committee."
In the year 2004, in an article which was published in, Ladan Afrasiabi, a commissioner in "Commission on Globalization" whose positions towards Islamic Republic is close to AIC, wrote:
"IAPAC -- the Iranian American Political Action Committee -- came to existence in 2003 following what seemed to be more of a "coup" inside American Iranian Council, when three of AIC board members, Hassan Nemazee, Akbar Ghahari and Faraj Aaalei collectively resigned from AIC and formed this well funded organization. Tapping into the financial and intellectual wealth of successful Iranians in the US and banking on their political ambitions, IAPAC is claiming to be the voice of the Iranian American diaspora in the US."
As we can see in IAPAC website, board of directors include Mr. Nemazee and also Mrs Nina Ansary, daughter of Hushang Ansary with a lot of stake in Ansary foundation and other companies belonging to Ansary family. Mr Nemazee and Hushang Ansary along with Henry Kissinger are in Asia Society which is an organization created by Rockefellers who also is founder of Trilateral Commission, a world economic entity. Many high ranking politicians from all over the world have been or still are a member of. The list of membership in Trilateral Commission includes both President Carter and President George Bush sr. who used to be head of CIA for a few years before he was fired by Jimmy Carter in 1977 along with a group of a few hundred people who were suspected of being involved in “Watergate scandal”. George Bush sr. was well known among his fellow party members as an extremist and too partisan so that this matter almost caused him to be rejected as Presidential candidate of the party even though he was a member of “world elite” society.

During his candidacy, President Bush sr. was generously supported by his old friend, Mr. Hushang Ansary, his wife and Ansary foundation. Contributions of Mr. Hushang Ansary to Republican party is not limited to Bush sr. as he has made generous contributions for other members of Bush Family. A look at a few item in one of the lists of Mr. Ansary’s contributions may help us understand how wealthy this former minister, ambassador and CEO, under previous Iranian regime is while many other former Iranian officials were either killed or are living a very ordinary life!

I just mentioned a few items but this particular list is much longer and can be viewed here:
And here:
And here for more recent ones:

According to this source, campaign contributions of Mr. Hushang Ansary for G.W. Bush in 2004 and Nina Ansary in 2008 was 100,000 dollars each under bundlers:

“Ansary, a member of the National Finance Committee of the Bush-Cheney Presidential Campaign, gave $270,000 to the Republican National Committee, according to federal filings.”

And Mrs. Ansary’s recent contributions:

Nina Ansary’s contributions:

Nader Ansary’s contributions:

Frank C. Carlucci who was in board of directors of IRI international corp., one of Ansary’s companies, in his page writes about Hushang Ansary’s campaign contributions:
“Ansary left the country during the turmoil. (Crackdown on Corruption in Iran Could Ensnarl Shah. By By Jonothan C. Randal. The Washington Post, Nov 19, 1978.) Ansary donated at least $100,000 to the Republican National Committee in 1988. “
As we can see, Mr. Asnary, after more than 20 years of end to previous regime in Iran, is still directed as “honorable ambassador” while the symbol of the regime which Mr. Ansary was its “ambassador”, the late Shah himself, was subject of despicable maltreatments and disrespect by Americans and their government and while their propaganda had filled the world with ridiculous exaggerations about late Shah’s wealth. Here it is! Mr. Ansary, a self proclaimed “philanthropist”, takes care of everything!

It is very obvious that Mr. Ansary left Iran in 1978 with quite a bit of money in his “pocket” to be able to start his investments in 1982 with a $5 million dollar company and escalate it quickly to hundreds of million dollars which recently have reached to multi billion dollars! Mr. Ansary’s hobby these days, on the side of “charity work” for his country, the United States, and playing with money in stock market, is buying “Islamic artifacts” while his wife Shahla is close friend of first lady of United States, Mrs. Laura Bush a “golf buddy” when she was in Texas. Shahla Ansary apparently is Mr. Ansary’s second wife. His first wife was Mariam Panahi whose father was minister of labor in Iran before he died in 1954. Mariam Panahi’s brother, Faradj who studied in Georgetown U in 1967, was a good friend of Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and he was Mr. Pahani’s “frequent guest”. This was the same year when Hushang Ansary was appointed as ambassador to US. There is a lot more that could be brought up here and I just wanted to bring this to your attention that “where the money is” and why!

Javid Shah!

I wanted to share these two clips with my viewers.

In this recent clip an Iranian woman fearlessly reaffirms her loyalty to the Iranian Monarchy by declaring "Long Live the King!" as she's walking down a street in Tehran (Iran). She also recounts a beautiful persian poem:

This second recent clip is from His Imperial Majesty the late Shahanshah of Iran's temporary resting place in Cairo (Egypt) - it brought tears to my eyes thinking what an ungrateful nation those who took to the streets in 1979 were...
