انور سادات مظهر وفاداری برای تمام ملت ایرانه و مردم ما هیچ وقت این احترام و محبت او را به شاه فراموش نمی کنن حتی آخوندها که همیشه از بی صفتی سران دول غربی می نالند از این یک حرکت انوار سادات هم حمایت می کنن.  حالا چه ربطی به این همه کلیپ های فیلم های عهد بوق هالی وود داره؟  یه موضوع را دنبال کن که مردم بفهمن چی میگذره به جای شلوغ پلوغ بازی های اینجوری.

Veiled Prophet of Khorasan

Masses

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on

 

do not have a mind and are just a mob. They do not learn. Masses get manipulated like they were by Khomeini. I would never trust the masses nor would I make a pact with them.They scream "marg bar ...". They stone and lynch people.

Mind; honor; ability to learn all belong to individuals not masses. A mass is never going to learn. No progress in history was made by masses. It was always individuals who did things. It will always be individuals who will in the future make progress.

Trusting masses is like trusting a herd of rampaging beasts. People show their worst as masses and best as individuals. In a mass there is no responsibility. It is as individuals that people act responsible and take both credit and blame for their actionsz.

The Shah was right to not have a pact with the masses. Good for him. VPK

Golsorkhi, Stalini !!

by Genghis Khan on

The wretched Left, be it Cherik( aghaliat, or Aksariat), Hekmatists, etc. are sprouting like mushrooms on this site. They feel so miserable that they see no ethical or ideological boundary when they promote the terrorist MKO.

If my body dies, let my body die, but do not let my country die.

This sounds so eerily similar to what a communist would say:

by Farah Rusta on

"Masses make histrory. They make collective mistakes in the process.
They learn in the process. Finaly what prevails is the will of the
masses.


I believe in masses and in their collective will and desire in democracy and social justice.
"

Now here (is) a different view, one I prescribe to: 

Iranian masses make history. They make collective mistakes in the process. They NEVER learn in the process. Finaly what prevails is the will of the FEW.

I believe in IRANIAN masses and in their collective will and desire TO REPEAT THEIR MISTAKES and CONFUSING social INjustice WITH JUSTICE.

"For as long as the Iranian masses are not politically mature enough to decide who represents their best interest, their interest will have to be decided for them by whoever is in charge." 

Now here a different view, one I prescribe to:

Farah Rusta

Now you changed the topic

by Farah Rusta on

Please Fooladi jan don't lecture us about Iranian masses. Are you talking about those masses who embraced Khomeini as the champion of their cause and their true representative?! Or are you talking about the masses of students who used to pour into the US/UK universities funded by the Pahlavi foundation? Or perhaps you are talking about the millions of US/UK made military machines and weapons that saved us from Saddam's army, thanks to the same so-called unrepresentative government.

 

The truth of the of the matter is that  the Shah and his government were just as representative of the Iranian masses for the most part of his reign as was Khomeini was in the earlier part of his reign and as are Ahmadinejad and Mousavi in today's Iran. For as long as the Iranian masses are not politically mature enough to decide who represents their best interest, their interest will have to be decided for them by whoever is in charge.

"the alliance" was not and is not with the Iranian masses.

by fooladi on

That is all that matters.

"The alliance" will only become with Iranian people, when the goverment is a true representative of Iranians. That will only happen when we have free, democratic elections in Iran.  


Farah Rusta

The alliance was no secret

by Farah Rusta on

Fooladi

 

The alliance between Iran and the US/Uk was no secret during the Shah's regin. But if the IRI is in any alliance with these two governments, that would be news.

Veiled Prophet of Khorasan

Re: Sellout

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on

 

What did he "sell out anyway"? 

  • He was a good friend to the Shah. Loyal and honorable; the kind of friend I like to have. One who comes and helps you when you need him. Not a jackass like Carter who left the Shah hanging in the cold. 
  • He got back the Sinai desert from Israel and recovered Egypt'sterritory.Much better than loudmouth jackass Nasser. He should be thanked for getting back land Nasser lost due to his stupidity.
  • He knew how to get things done without a fight.

Why do people not appreciate leaders who are intelligent and accomplish things? Shooting off one's mouth is not a sign of intelligence. It is a sign of stupidity.

I do think it's about modernity. As perceived and understood by this underworld. If we deepen our perception, and 'stick to its values' as I said, we will prevail. The message is not 'you suck as a modern person, let's go back to our roots'. The message is 'good job, let's try to do better'.

God bless President Sadat and Shahanshah Aryamehr!

by commie mullah on

Two great statesmen of principles, loyalty, integrity, and common visions for their respective countries! Having stricken by two worst diseases of all times Islam and communism, these two men worked tirelessly to bring their respective nations from the 700 AD into the 20th century and they paid the ultimate price for it. One was driven out of his beloved homeland by terrorists and subversives. The other was assassinated by terrorists for harboring his friend.

They say a friend's true friendship and loyalty is tested when you are down and in the neediest condition! President Sadat illustrated that to all of us Iranians and the whole world for that matter.

In summary, we can say with certainty that there was, is, and will always be more courage, integrity, dignity, loyalty, grace, honesty, selflessness, statesmanship, and ... in Sadat's pinky than in the entire existence of the Iranian AN-tellectuals, commies, and many of the groups who ate off of the late Shah's prosperity he brought to Iran in that period!  

 

A good commie is a dead commie!

A good mullah is a dead mullah!

The Brits either have, or pretend to have the habit of feeling historical regrets. Their Balfour Declaration might be another example.

Thatcher's reaction

by Farah Rusta on

Previously classified documents that were released last year revealed that Margaret Thatcher, then British PM, was deeply unhappy with the advice of their Foreign Office not to welcome the Shah in Britain.  She regarded the Shah as an ally in trouble who had to be helped. The British FO had foreseen the consequences of such admission thus avoided a British hostage crisis.

Benross aziz: It is not Modernity

by Orang Gholikhani on

I agree with you it is not about Islam but it is either Modernity.

For me modernity is a positive value and I don't want join now days "Interest Culture" as modernity !

Looking only for Money and power, forgetting "Noon o Namak" being as we say in Farsi "Past" has always existed. I agree with you, nowdays it became very common but it is not modernity!

Modernnity is sharing knowledge thru new technology or saving lives thru sciences.

The time of "Pahlevan Naiebha" will be back one day.

Anti-modernity killed them all

by benross on

It is not about Islam. Or if it is, it is misguided to be tackled directly. It is about modern values. If we stick with those values, they'll be defeated.
