Iranian Emperor on CBS 60 Minutes - Oct 23, 1976

Shahanshah Aryamehr, the late Iranian Emperor, on CBS 60 minutes responding to the foreign/islamist/leftist propaganda aimed against Him and specifically created as an excuse/reason to topple the Iranian Government and prepare the grounds for an Islamic takeover.

This is another CBS 60 minutes clip with the late Emperor of Iran:

The foreign media - mainly the U.S., U.K., France, & Germany acted as conduits to the Islamist/Leftist alliance in Iran who used this powerful channel (in terms of influence) in laying out their exaggerated claims of use of force by certain elements in the Iranian intelligence organizations against their terrorist members who they potrayed as "democrats" and "freedom fighters", and furthermore used these channels to deliver their utter fabrications that were meant to malign the Iranian Government and the late Shah specifically.

The United States and the United Kingdom were the two principal backers of this unholy alliance of Islamists and Leftists, and the Islamic Republic is a direct creation of their tireless efforts to undermine the Iranian Government and the late Shah's campaign to make Iran a secular, democratic, and model state in that part of the world - which of course was not in the interests of the "superpowers".

It is funny to what degrees the enemies of Iranian prosperity, progression, and national integrity are willing to go in their propaganda full of lies. On one side a patriot like the Shah of Iran, with a solid vision and loving devotion to his country, was labeled a "megalomaniac" by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and by the Leftist/Islamist Alliance as an "American puppet" and "blood thirsty dictator"!!! It seems these parties were trying to outdo each others' lies by coming up with the greatest untrue characterisations they could possibly produce! As it has been said in the past...repeat a lie a million times and the masses will buy it in the end...and that is exactly what happened.

Shame on the governments of the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and their puppets proxies in the Islamist/Leftist Alliance that destroyed a booming country under the leadership of a loving and devoted leader like the late Shah of Iran. They were able to kill a Great patriotic leader and destroy a booming country but they were not able to kill His Imperial Majesty's vision, goals, devotion, and love for His country.

UPDATE 1: It is of note that back then when the "superpowers" saw the late Shah of Iran as a threat they would continously repeat lies and exaggerations about human rights abuses in Iran, however today with their puppets in place not one single question asked of them, like AhmadiNejad, pertains to the countless human rights violations that take place daily in Iran. It is either questions which aim to portray Iran under Islamic Occupation as a progressive state by comparing it with other slightly more backward states like Saudi Arabia or the attention is solely on the for-show nuclear programme/AhmadiNejad's statements - not one second is devoted to the courageous people who are being executed and killed across Iran on a frequent basis by this hell-sent regime - whose only crime has been to stand up against the anti-Iranian, occupational, illegitimate Islamic Republic.

Confederation of Iranian Peoples and Nations

Under the comments of my previous entry an anonymous commentator laid out his anti-Iranian, secessionist, pro-disintegration agenda and presented himself as a Kurd supporting the "President" of the short-lived soviet puppet state called the "Republic of Kurdistan". I just happened to come across this clip today, by Pari Saffari, which serves as an appropriate reply to that anonymous commentator:

Persian, Kurd, Azeri, Balouch, Gilaki, Mazandarani....have given blood to maintain Iran's territorial integrity and now a few, ignorant, but loud individuals claim to be sons and daughters of that land yet they shout for secession!

Iran Hargez Nakhahad Mord! Payandeh Iran!

Food for thought...

Some naïve Iranians & foreigners criticize the former Shah of Iran and the founder of modern Iran (Reza Shah the Great) for being too authoritarian. The naïvety of these individuals does not allow them to look at the full range of issues and circumstances which the Iranian nation faced during those respective periods of time when attempting to make informed evaluations which they can later base their judgments on (i.e. taking into consideration social, economical, political factors).

Hopefully this quotation may explain why an authoritarian approach was necessary to attempt in rescuing Iran from 1400 years of foreign domination (physically or ideological-wise), nation-wide poverty & disease, dis-integration of the territorial integrity of the country, banditry and lawlessness, nation-wide illiteracy, a superstitious society governed by an anti-Iranian Islamic religious establishment, and a thousand other ills which faced Iran at the time that the founder of modern Iran (Reza Shah the Great) decided to put the country on the path towards modernity, progress, and prosperity. Imagine that society, facing the thousands ills that were present at that time, being given full democratic rights, as suggested by these gullible individuals a 100 years after the realities of that period in history, the results would have been nothing short of anarchy or the powerful anti-Iranian Islamic religious establishment capitalizing on their stronghold of Iranian minds and bring further misery to a country that had at that time suffered for 1400 years...

“Authoritarian political structures sometimes work well. They offer opportunities to make rapid change and to impose firm leadership which more accountable systems lack. In the hands of honest leaders of determination and vision, they give opportunities for stability and long-term planning which democratic regimes often find difficult to achieve.”

(Kay & Silberston, 1995, National Institute Economic Review, Aug: 84-95)

Certainly authoritarianism may also lead to negative outcomes if those that exercise it do not have the interests of the nation at heart - but again any sane human being that makes an informed evaluation of the efforts of modern Iran's founding father and his successor will come to the conclusion that their actions were made with nothing but the interests of their countrymen and future generations to come. Also, it need to be said, that even with the best interests at heart there may also be negative outcomes to decisions that are made, however in general the approach that was adopted was the only feasible and realistic approach that could have been taken.
