Now we are getting to the heart of the matter

Ali P that is your choice as I am free to call him what I like. Thanks for your straight talk. 

It is a shame that skins are so thin that it detracted from the message which was he was put in an impossible situation and any reasonable person could understand why he took the actions he did afterwards.

Mr. Fozolie

I quit reading.

If you want to copy or quote, do it properly

by Farah Rusta on

Now that you are a fan of the IRI approved sources like "Rooz shomar ..." don't be afraid to reveal your source of information in your first comment. We all know that you are not old enough to have a personal memory of the event!! 

 

Here is a better IRI approved source for your future use:

and as far as the lump is concerned, obviously one is still stuck in you after thirty years (LOL).

eeerm that is incorrect

by fozolie on

 

It is not copied and pasted.  What Mamad Damagh said I read in Roozshomar e Tarikh e Iran (it was such a telling or striking remark which is why I remeber so long after reading it)  and Ergani confessions came from also another book I read a while ago, it was about assissnations attempts on the Shah, I believe it is now out of print.  Where it is available on the net I provide links so that accusation, no matter how vexed you are for whatever reason, does not stand up. As for the infantile remarks you just have to lump it. Do you have to say something about the topic at hand?

Mr. Fozolie


Farah Rusta

Why do you have to show your infantile self all the time?

by Farah Rusta on

Fozoli

 

Copying and pasting stuff as you do is not such a big deal. It does not give you any credit. But you can give even a copied material a bit of credit by keeping your own stupid and childish prejudices out of it.

 

I know you are not mature enough but try it - it may work next time :P

4th February 1949 - 5 bullets, 2 went through his military cap

by fozolie on

It was outside the Law Faculty of Tehran University and the assassin was a journalist working for the Parcham e Eslam newspaper (but belonged to Toudeh as mentioned).

What is interesting and perhaps a lot of people missed is what Mammad Damagh said afterwards to the members of parliament attending an audience about 2 weeks later.

His words were something like: "You gentlemen keep (disagreeing and) changing the governments and I pay the price (GOOLOOLE HA RA MAN MEEKHORAM)", he then went on to demand the power to dissolve the parliament and for the Consitutional Assembly to be convened. 

He was clearly fed up and it may have been the turning point for him becoming a dictator later.

Mr. Fozolie

PS: It was the Toudeh's deputy security thug, Abdollah Ergani (right spelling?) who was the assasin's mentor. He passed it by Kianouri who 'did not object' (Kianouri also confirmed that saying he consulted Keshavarzi, Radmanesh and Tabari as Toudeh did not have a policy for assassinations - huh? - The trio advised it was not up to them to warn the Shah of what Fakhr-Ara-ee planned so he went along with it!!). 


Farah Rusta

And guess who the assassin was!

by Farah Rusta on

A member of the Tudeh Party's youth organization named Nasser Fakhr-Araee who was recruited by the good old Mr Kianouri who had provided Fakhr Araee with the loaded pistol.

 

Another glorious page in the history book of the Tudeh party.
