The party at Persepolis that paved the way for the downfall of a dictator.ICfreely wrote:I reiterate that everyone (especially Jews) should familiarize themselves with the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. I don't believe it's a Jewish conspiracy. In other words, I don't think all Jews are in on it. How can they be? I can't say the same for JPM's and their Masonic lackeys. The Iranian revolution is a classic case study of how the learned elders topple Kingdoms.

A commentary on the video quoted above.
I understand the Islamic Revolution in Iran to be unique. It seems to me that it might be the only successful revolution to be carried out by non-zionists. All other revolutions starting with the French revolution and beyond are in fact Zionist led revolutions which more than likely use the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion as a blue print.
The position of Iran in the modern era (after WWII) was to be artificially manufactured. If you read between the lines, you could glean this information from the video itself.
The idea was for Iran to be viewed as a top tier nation by the rest of the heads of states of planet earth’s family of nations. At the same time the opinion of everyday Iranian people did not really matter to the perpetrators. The legitimacy of such a grand monarch did not have to come from them. The idea was to obtain the consent of the heads of state for this artificially imposed hierarchical position of the “Persian Empire” in this world. This fairy tale can only be concocted in the minds of people who don’t take into account the lives of regular Iranians. In fact that approach made sense to the inventors (maybe the “Learned Elders of Zion”?) of this “Modern Persian Empire” hoax since the people were so backward that they wouldn’t know what to do about such a fait accompli of someone at the helm of the country believing himself to be the so called Shah N Shah” and who as it turned out was nothing but a petty and ruthless dictator. To achieve that status of a top tier nation and to create this new rank of the Modern Persian Empire with a Shah n Shah as its monarch, the perpetrators of this hoax thought of a ‘novel idea’ create a party where the heads of states of the nations are invited. That will do the trick.
Note the silliness, you can make up for the backwardness of the nation by just throwing out a huge party which ended up demonstrating the pettiness and shallowness of those so called leaders of the creations called nation states.1:35; the party is like a debutante ball. It’s like coming out party. The idea was that Tehran wanted to join the top tier nations with a bang. But it was the wrong bang”
The Iranian people were so backward that many of them viewed the Shah as a ‘god’. It was sad and ungodly to see people bowing down to this false god.1:50; If you spend hundreds of millions you have to answer to somebody. One day you pay”
Unfortunately for him and as it turned out, it was the Persian people themselves who could not understand nor identify the special relationship that he was talking about. They felt so oppressed and bullied that they ended up revolting by ushering in the only type of government that was created outside of the hands and minds of the so called “Learned Elders of Zion,” the so called Powers That Be as I prefer to call them.3:40: Shah: I have a firm belief that I have a mission to accomplish and I believe in God that is why I say, I have a divine command to do what I am doing. And this in addition to the special relationship between the Persian people and their king helps make it a special relationship that maybe some other people could not understand.
Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.8:42 Abdolreza Ansari Member, Organizing Committee: If we knew what we were getting into, we would never have tried it…. People thought that the celebrations were a joke.
12:15 Meanwhile ‘intellectuals’ had been arguing since the late 19th century that the reason for colonialism, the reason for Iran’s weakness is Islam.
This is very familiar refrain. Blame the misery of the people on their religion and not on the fact that all the riches of the country are siphoned by the Shah and his handlers.5:00 Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971: There were no elections back then. The people around the Shah were all flatterers and boot lickers
Before the Islamic revolution, the regular people were trying to survive and to find out how to come out from under the yolk of such a dictatorial regime.
In 1952 Mossadegh the PM was attempting to speak for the majority of the people and challenged the supreme role of the Shah. A constitutional crisis developed on who should control the army. Mossadegh viewed this as his role according to the constitution. This would reduce the Shah to a figurehead with Mossadegh taking the executive duties of government. The dispute led to a coup which toppled Mossadegh. The coup was engineered by the CIA. After the coup the Shah felt relieved, and this despite the fact that he was back in power not as the Iranian people had hoped and regardless of the fact that he was back in his palace due to a coup led by foreigners.5:15: Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971: As time went on we were keen to learn, to find our place in the world. We were stopped. Even reading a book was difficult. If we were found with a banned book, they’d beat us half to death. And if the person was weak they’d talk.
He made a choice to maintain power by brutal force. He opted to surround himself with the SAVAK a Zionist inspired terrorist organization to suppress his own people. In order to project an image of legitimacy in the eyes of the heads of states he decided to organize the huge party mentioned earlier.16:20: Shah: Until 53, my life was a succession of pain, and suffering, and humiliation
The people, in the meantime, continued to suffer more intensely with the crueler methods employed by the Shah's police.
The Shah at the urging of his Zionist handlers created a top to bottom revolution, the so called White Revolution. You can see for yourselves the humiliation of the people kissing the hands and feet of the ‘benevolent’ dictator who is so kind as to emancipate the women by allowing them to vote and by permitting them to get rid of the veil.21:16 Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971: The secret police raided our home. My mum woke me up. They were searching everywhere but they found nothing. I couldn’t believe it with all the banned books in the house. That’s when I became political. What kind of a system is this? The longer the Shah reigned the worse the oppression became. It was the opposite of what Cyrus stood for.
Resistance to this fake revolution which caused 15000 Iranians to be killed by tanks and machine guns was wide spread. Khomeini led the charges against the Shah for trying to put down Islam. The Shah answers by sending commandos to attack religious students in the Qom religious schools. Some of the religious students are killed in this overt terrorist action.22:54: Shah: If you are happy that your country is saying good bye to a feudalistic system. If you are unhappy that half of the population of your country, the women, are emancipated well, this I cannot help.
He decides to exile Khomeini.23:50: It’s a declaration of war against the clergy
Before being exiled, Khomeini left a message to his supporters.23:22: Shah: I had to send one of those stubborn obscurantist clergymen abroad. He had to travel.
Meanwhile, the preparations for the ultimate party of the Shah were in full gear.24:47 Khomeini: The shameful so called white revolution which in a single day caused 15000 Muslims to be killed by tanks and machine guns has made the fate of our people even bleaker. In many of our cities and most of our villages there are no doctors or medicine. There are no signs of schools, baths or drinking water. In some villages, the children are so hungry that they graze the fields. But this tyrannical regime spends millions of dollars on various festivals. Most catastrophic of all, the 2500th anniversary of the founding of the monarchy. Let the world know that these celebrations have nothing to do with the noble Muslim people of Iran. All those who take part are traitors to Islam and to the Iranian people.
I don't know what she is talking about 'working hard'. Working hard giving orders and trying on the most expensive dresses?30:24 Queen Farah Diba: We are working so hard we have no time to think of anything else
They also built a type of 'forest' in that desert by importing all the trees from Europe. they also imported 50000 birds to populate that forest. However the poor birds died after just three days due to the foreign climate to which they were unaccustomed.33:11 working so hard that resulted in 47Km of silk, 18 tons of food, 180 waiters, 12000 bottles of whiskey, 25000 bottles of wine, 60000 troops, 250 bullet proof limousines, 360000 eggs, 6000 costumed soldiers,
The Shah was using the legend of Cyrus to buttress his lofty position as the modern monarch that has succeeded to the legendary Persian emperor.
39:41: Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971:It was a very bad time for Iran in terms of terror and oppression. I all felt very artificial. When he (the Shah) said (to Cyrus)” sleep we are awake” It was a joke. From that moment the Shah became a symbol of absurdity and hate
The Shah ordered the strictest safety measures to be imposed on the country and its citizens. The borders were closed. All the universities were shut down to make it safe during the party. All student representatives were arrested, every single one of them.40:25: The opposition focused on one sentence: “Cyrus sleep calm. We are awake” The people joked “Sleep calm we’re ruining the country. Sleep calm we’re spending the oil money” “Sleep calm we’re pissing away all the wealth”
46:45 Journalist asks the Shah:
Shah answers:Is it true that protests are forbidden at the university?
Meanwhile, in some capitals there were people who criticized the decadence and tyranny of the Shah.Which protests? Against what? Against the politic of our country which is a politic of national independence? That’s not even a question anyone talks about.
The criticism against the Shah dissuaded some leaders from attending the extravaganza.Voice over: some critics the West the Shah is a dictator. Not a liberal man at all.
It was also emphasized by many leaders that the legitimacy of the Shah cannot come from few foreign head of states.47:15 Majid Zarbakhsh student leader: Five monarchs and five presidents didn’t attend. The excuses they gave weren’t credible. They were put under a lot of pressure so that they do not take part in the ceremony.
. Regardless the violent oppression of those who are perceived as trouble makers continued.47:54 Abol Sadr: When you gather all the countries of the world, you’re basing your legitimacy on them. Your celebration is not for your people but for them. They’re the important ones, not your own people
Journalist asks the Shah about the cost of the extravagant celebrations while there are people in need. The Shah:Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971: They arrested me a month before the celebrations. I remember the lights going up in Shah Reza Street. The prison was so crowded, there was no room to sleep. No one could sleep where I was sleeping. I’m really small but my legs still stuck out.
“…really the only expenses that are made for the festivities are for the official dinners that we are going to give our guests. This is the least that we could do for such a gathering.
At its peak they were said to be 5000 political prisoners and 10000 secret police.1:02:42 : Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971:The first thing they did was to take you to the torture room. If they found something on you like an illegal book they’d hit you until they got what they wanted.
The Shah justifies the oppressive methods. He said
1:03:30Journalist asks him referring to the torturous interrogation methods:“ What I can say is that we are now sophisticated enough to use the same methods that you people are using for interrogating the people that you have to.
Shah:Do you regard that as justified?
It depends on what cases. In cases of betrayal of one’s country, I could say anything goes.
The Shah justifies the methods as beyond the control of the torturers. At 1:04:16 the Shah says1:02:42: Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971:They bound your hands and feet. They had different whips for different purposes. They used the thicket one first. When your feet swelled up, they’d use a thinner one. If they used too thick a whip it could break your toes.
As the rumblings of dissatisfaction with his harsh rule grow, the protests get more frequent, the Shah and his handlers feel that it might be time to change course. They thought they might try to beg the people to maintain the monarchy. The Shah tries to ask for forgiveness knowing that other heads of state will not and cannot bring him legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people.“ You can see films for instance. You can hear stories that even in police prisons, police officer or detective (?) gets so mad at the behavior of the fellow that he has just arrested that he loses his head and he just punches on that fellow or breaks a chair on his head. These are human reactions that uuh it’s almost beyond control.
1:12:12 Journalist asks him something about his feelings of loneliness in those days. Shah:“ As your King, I repeat my oath to the people of Iran and solemnly vow that all the mistakes, the cruelty and corruption of the past will not be repeated.
Journalist:Yes it’s very special case if I can say so.
Shah:In what way is it special?
Journalist:I mean to be as you say the king of kings.
Shah;and it means you are lonely because you really have no one to go to for advice who is above you?
Well There is always God.
Esmaeil Khataie Student Representative 1969-1971: We never had freedom. We wanted to read. We wanted to understand. We wanted to be at peace. As I look back now, I realize that they arrested the best people. Why? for reading books, for speaking out against the Shah. You couldn’t . They’d tell us to chase girls, fool around, make money. They even offered to pay us just to keep us out of politics. That’s not possible anywhere. It wasn’t possible then, It’s not possible in the Islamic republic now or in France. Young people will always look for answers.
