Journalist and intellectual Sadegh Ziba Kallam courageously defends Reza Shah as a Patriot on IRI TV - March 2010: Kemal Attaturk Greets Reza Shah in Turkey:



The only known footage of the Reza Shah with audio, showing the Shah of Iran on an official state visit to Turkey in 1934, has been discovered after 76 years by a university professor in Istanbul,Turkey.


Professor Sughar Sammy Avghlv discovered this unique film, inside a local grocery shop in Istanbul, Turkey.

"The shop-keeper was shredding a pile of old negatives and mixing them with acid to make some sort of paste, among them was one labeled; Kemal Atatürk which immediately caught my attention" said university professor Avghlv.

Professor Avghlv offered the shopkeeper more than $200 before he could convince him to sell these footages.

We understand that this is the only footage of the Reza Shah of Iran with audio.

The first part of the film shows a brief conversation between Kemal Atatürk and Reza Shah.

Second part is showing Reza Shah of Iran and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk visiting the port of Istanbul, accompanied by both Iranian and Turkish government officials. Unfortunately, this past has no audio.

Transcript of the conversation between Kemal Ataturk and Reza Shah of Iran on sate visit to Turkey 1934:

Kemal Ataturk: We are extremely delighted that you have finally come to Turkey.

Reza Shah: I am also elated to be here; I have long waited for this visit.

Kemal Ataturk: Thank you very much. We sincerely feel the same and are pleased to finally meet you here in Turkey.

Reza Shah: As you may know a few years ago I spoke to your representative and informed him of my intention to visit your country.

Kemal Ataturk: Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Our friendship is too old and was started many years ago. This is a mutual acquaintance, and we will strengthen our deep and close relationship even more.

Reza Shah: perhaps there has been some negligence in the past, but hopefully we will change that in near future.

Kemal Ataturk: I have no shred of the doubt and all Turks are feeling the same.

He called himself the "Sword of Islam" before he decided he wanted to be a "Gentleman". Boys and Girls - the Europeans don't like you, want you or need you. Get over yourselves. We will florish when we embrace our own "glory" and not someone elses. As for Israel being a democracy - are you kidding me????

Ataturk was a little on the "pink" side, if you get my drift. Reza Shah was kicked out of his own country by his British Masters and his own son. What a great man? PLEASE


The Shah prayed!

To all the "EuroPersian" half wits who continue on with thier rants about Islam - your Shah-in-Shah (actually, the son of a rough, filthy soldier who stole the crown)bowed his head five times a day at the end of his life. You curse "Islam" while praising a "King" who couldn't muster the strength to defend his own nation (he ran - who are you kidding). As for Ali Reza - we all feel sorry for his Mother. No Mother should bury her son. Now do you cry for the thousands of Mothers the Savak brutalized with their crimes? It makes me sick reading the nonsense on this sight (site - no, blind, yes). Islam isn't what destroyed Iran. The Shah and his croonies created the environment that lead to the Islamic Republic. Iranians destroyed Iran - not Islam. When we come to these terms, we may find a path to salvation. Wait! There is no such thing as Iran. His Imperial Nonsense, the King of My Pocket Book. Do you people hear yourselves. Majesty, Imperial - what a load of crap!!!! Mr. President sounds good to me.


DK, I agree with you 100 percent that Reza Shah did an

invaluable service to Iran. Iran needed a big shaking and he was the one who shook it. He had foresight and courage , but was tarnished by his appetite for wealth and his land grab policies which established the basis for the Pahlavi Foundation.  Most importantly, I wish that like Ataturk, Reza Shah  would let the nation select the next leader rather than imposing his son.

That's why we need someone like Stalin instead of bombing Iran. Someone who could do the job with no collateral damage and pave the way for a regime change without wasting any asphalt. He may need lots of concrete, though.

Reza Shah: the savior of Iran

by Kourosh Afhami on

Reza Shah's legacy will always remain relevant.  Atatürk rebuilt a damaged country but Reza Shah recreated a country that was about to disappear from the map.  We owe him our country's survival and Iran's civil society owes him its existence! 


There must be some kind of an alert system

as soon as DK or Fred post a blog, certain posters rush to leave negative comments.

Hey, I understand, that's what they get paid for, but man, give it a rest - at least for a while.   Tke a vacation to Gaza or South Lebanon to see the family.

Reza Shah: Ataturk, he wasn't. Not even close.

And Reza Shah's cowardly offspring were mere parasites of the country. Fortunately for Iran, they're no longer relevant but for a few quacks in self-exile.
