Shah The Great, The Real Story
April 15, 2007
been told enough lies from the left and from the right. Each has
distorted this man's lifetime of achievements to propagate their
own political ideology. Throughout the decades Muslim, Marxists
and Monarchists, all have shoved their own distorted version of
this man's life in to your minds. The "M" Ideologies
also known as Monarchists, Mojaheds, Marxists, Mosadeqists and Muslim
are world famous for distorting the history. What they preach is
not history but propaganda! Each of these small cults had created
their version of history about this man. The reality is that Iranians
by majority do not belong to any of these cults. Iranians by majority
are simple Nationalists. Iranians by majority are the same as you
and I. I can see you sitting behind your monitor disappointed and
disturbed about what has happened to our nation on 1979. I can
see you sitting behind your monitor sick and tired of all of these
"M" Ideologies and their followers. I can see you sitting
behind your monitor seeking a way out to free our land and regain
our Old Glory. I am speaking to you.
Yes my friends,
Iranians by majority do not belong to any of these cults. Iranians
by majority are simple folks and simple nationalists the same as
you and I. Masses of Iran and the future generation demands
the truth. At last they need to know the truth about this Iranian
Icon, this great man, and the designer of the modern Iran.
The one who came with the Blues.
R. The one who left with the Greens.
Allow me to
clearly state here that everything which you have read in the
past about Reza Khan was either a lie or distortion of history.
Each side had twisted the reality for the benefit of their own cult.
You deserve better, you deserve the truth. Masses of Iran deserve
to educate themselves to the true history of Iran written for the
I speak of the
scientific, updated and the true history of Iran. I am the "History
Teller of the Masses" and I am here to tell you a story.
It is time to speak of the truth and the real history which you
have never heard because it has been hidden from you; the history
which has been hidden from you by the men with various political
agendas. Why don't you sit back, relax, hand me your ears and let
me tell you a story of Reza Khan, the real story? I am the History
Teller. Let me tell you a story about a simple man who was the same
as you and I. Let me tell you a story about a modest man who
was nothing but a simple Nationalist and a lover of Iran. Let me
tell you a story about the creator of the modern Iran and the father
of nation. Let me tell you about Reza Khan
Reza Khani Look
The Efforts of A Legend
To the memory
of our father, The Father of Nation, Reza Shah The Great.
Reza Khan used
to wear his military outfit all the time. They used to ask him:
"When will you take these old boots off?" He used to reply:
"The day that I will take off these boots will be the day that
Iran will become self-sufficient." Iran was Reza and Reza was
Reza Khan took
over a broken, backward, destroyed, bankrupt, superstitious, religious,
Islam infested and infected declined Empire which had lost all her
landmass through a useless, hypocritical governing system and greed
of Qajar Dynasty. After 16 (1925 - 1941) years he built the nation
from the scratch, dragged Iran out of the dark ages and brought
her the present of modern civilization. He started the basic steps
and the reconstruction of the little Persian Kingdom so one day
she would become a great industrial nation of Iran. Let's study
deeper about what this legend had accomplished for our nation, and
how he managed to do these efforts. Let's study about a Persian
Legend, The Father of Nation, The Father of Modern Iran, Reza Shah
An older portrait of Reza Khan
R. A newer portrait of Reza Khan
After the reign
of Aqa Mohamad Shah Qajar (1794 AD - 1797 AD) who was the
last of great shahanshahs and the last Persian Emperor, due to worthlessness
of his brother, Fath Ali Shah Qajar, the Persian Empire stated to
decline. Despite the great efforts of Abbas Mirza (Commander in
chief of the Persian Forces and Fath Ali Khan's son), our nation
started to fall apart and many states of Iran became pieces of pies
and new trophies for the Russian and the British Empires. While
Aqa Mohamad Shah was alive, the British, Russians, Ottomans and
other enemies of Iran, dared to make a move on Iran. Aqa Mohamad
Shah was a fierce and firm powerful emperor; however, after his
death, Iran was declared as the open season prey for the great empires
to haunt, bite and cut off each piece of her body on annual basis!
Aqa Mohamad Shah and Abbas Mirza were two great aces
of the Qajar Dynasty, yet after them, Qajar Dynasty started to decline.
For more information
on Aqa Mohamad Shah and Abbas Mirza Qajar, read:
Years of Iranian History - Part Three
and Last Persian Emperors
was an uneducated man with very little schooling; however, he was
one of the most intelligent, bright, secular and freethinking Iranians
of all times. It is amazing that from such a great secular man descended
Mohamad Reza and Reza Pahlavi II, both religious and both up to
their necks in superstitions!
Monarchist School of Thought!
expect Iranians to worship Pahlavis only because Reza Khan was
a great individual! Great ingenuity of Reza Khan as an individual
does not put the Iranian masses in debt to the Pahlavi's corrupted
family! A logical and rational person (unlike monarchists) judges
each individual according to his own actions and does not praise
a whole dynasty due to efforts of one or two individuals! If we
abide by monarchist school of thought, then we must worship the
complete Qajar Dynasty only due to the great efforts of Aqa Mohamad
Shah and Abbas Mirza! But in reality, the whole Qajar Dynasty's
Shahs were mostly a tragic catastrophe except a few individuals.
The same thing can be stated about Pahlavis.
R. Reza Khan's simple featherbed on the floor of his modest room
and study. Once they asked him: "why do you sleep on the floor?"
He gently replied: "I don't want to forget my roots and where
I had come from!"
Reza Khan, father
of the nation, father of the modern Iran, rebuilt Iran from the
scratch. Hereby we shall state some of the reforms, tasks, and achievements,
which he had accomplished:
Achievements of Reza Shah The Great
He built Trans-Iranian Railroad to connect the cities
of our nation from south to north and from east to west, only by
taxing 2 Rials on Sugar and Ghand (sugar cubes). Therefore the nation
would have develop its economy through a well-connected transportation
system. Reza Khan always had this dream to build the North-South
Iranian Railways but the national economy was a disaster and he
did not want to ask for foreign loans. When there is a will, then
there is a way. Finally he taxed Sugar and Sugar Cubes only 2 Rials
and it took 11 years to build the system but at last the task was
complete. Reza Khan managed to do this task without any foreign
debt! This was short of a miracle! Reza Khan, was a great economist.
On August 26, 1938, the Trans-Iranian Railroad started its operation.
Unfortunately later on the Allies invaded Iran, forced Reza Shah
out of power and in to exile and then used this Railroad to transfer
military vehicles, weapons and other goods from the Persian Gulf
to Russia. Allies named Iran, "The Bridge of Victory".
Iranian Roadways and Railroads caused Allies to win the war!
On 1935 Reza Shah changed the name of the country from Pars
or Persia to Iran, so the name of the land would cover and recognize
all the races, ethnic groups, tribes, and minorities of Iran and
not just mistakenly the Persians. Before this date the name of the
country was Pars.
Many were against this move because Iran means land of Aryans and
Reza Shah were at most in axis with The Axis Powers (Nazi Germany,
Fascist Italy, Imperial Japan) or at least sympathized with them.
They figured the term "Iran" is a racist word and one
cannot change an ancient name (Pars) with thousands of years of
history, all of a sudden to "Iran"!
Others were thrilled by this name change, because Pars (Persia)
could give the wrong impression that the whole nation is being named
after one state of Iran (Pars) or one ethnic group of Iran (Persians)
and that would be racist. On the other hand Iran covers the whole
nation and all the states.
He entered women into the workplaces and factories
by taking the hejab and veil off of their faces and bodies. He freed
the women, which were half of the Iranian population, and entered
them in to the work force, so the nation could run its industrial
machine with the full power by using all Iranian men and women.
He made a mandatory law for unveiling of the women, unturbaning
and unrobing the clergy and men. The law of the land (taking veils
off women's faces, and turbans and robes off men's heads and bodies)
became very clear. Anyone who would not obey this law, his or
her veil, turban and robe would had been cut off with scissors
right on the intersections of the main streets of the large cities,
by the police. This is how determined he was to enforce this law,
and drag our people to the modern age. During Reza Khan's reign
one could not appear with hejab, turbans, robes and even Kolah
Namadi (traditional Iranian Beanie Hats) in the public. If violating
this law, the police would humiliate them in public by tearing
these outfits. Reza Khan replaced the above garments by modern
hats and dresses for women and modern military style hat (Pahlavi
Hat) and western suits for men. The Freedom of Women and the Mandatory
Law for banning the Hejab kick started on January 7, 1936.
He built schools and universities such as the Tehran University
and Reza Shah Kabir Academy. The first University in Iran was built
on February 4, 1935 by his majesty, which was named the Tehran University.
Reza Khan also built the Iranian Cultural Institute (Farhangestan-e
Iran) on May 20, 1935.
He cut clerics' hands off the judicial and educational
system of Iran.
He opened the doors of schools and universities to all women.
He built the first border to border roadways of Iran; The North-South
Roadways of Iran were built by his majesty. He built avenues
and streets all along inside the main cities, and well paved roads
to connect important cities of Iran with one another. The North-South
Roadways of Iran were built on October 29, 1928.
He built Dams over the rivers, electric and industrial
factories, hospitals and clinics, and many other institutes. The
very first factory built by Reza Khan was the Cement Factory of
Loushan in Gilan. Creation of this factory was the birth of the
industrial age of Iran. Since that day, Iran moved towards the speedy
He sent many of our youth for the first time to Europe,
so they would educate themselves, and by doing so, they could serve
He made the basic education (elementary and secondary) mandatory,
public and free in Iran. Education was the only way that our
nation could break free from the balls and chains of superstition
As mentioned above, he started the industrialization
age of Iran by building the Cement Factory of Loushan. As of now
the cement industry is one of the top five industries of Iran. Let
us not forget that Reza Khan started this industry. The official
Industrialization Day of Iran is on December 30th, 1933 when Reza
Khan and people celebrated the grand opening of the Cement Factory
of Loushan in city of Loushan in Province of Gilan.
He built the modern Iranian Navy, the first modern Navy which
Iran had since the glory days of Persian Imperial Navy during 5th
BC Achaemenid's Grand Admiral Artemisia the first female high ranking
officer in the world and later on 18th AD Safavids/Afsharids Navy.
On May 1, 1931 the Iranian Navy had officially started its work
to protect and secure the southern waters of Iran. Years later,
the northern navy in Caspian Sea started its operation.
He built the Iranian Air Force from scratch, the complete
Air Force system of Iran was his majesty's vision. The Iranian Air
Force was built on June 1, 1924.
He built the Iranian modern Army. This force trained many
worthy low and high-ranking officers. The official date for building
the Iranian modern army is November 17, 1921.
Since the coup until February 16th, 1922, Reza Khan
had successfully ended the separatist movements in Gilan, Azerbaijan,
Khuzestan, Mazandaran and Khorasan. Reza Khan secured the unity
and integrity of Iran.
Invention of the Red Lion and Sun Organization on July 27,
1923. This is a health and emergency organization similar to the
Red Cross and Red Crescent.
Iran needed a steady and strong military, so on June 6, 1925, Reza
Khan made the military draft mandatory.
Capitulation (Capitolasion) was a reactionary law, which disallowed
Iranian courts to trial the foreign diplomats and citizens committing
crimes in Iran. In other words foreigners could get away with any
crimes in Iran! On April 26, 1927, Reza Khan banned the Capitulation
On September 11, 1928 Reza Khan founded Bank Meli
Iran (The Iranian National Bank) with only 20 Million Rials
of capital. This was the first Iranian national bank. Later on Reza
Khan built other banks such as the Agricultural Bank (July 17, 1935)
and Rahni Bank (January 15, 1939).
On May 12, 1930 Reza Khan had officially transferred the right
to print currency and coins from Bank Shahanshahi to Bank Meli Iran.
Before this date, Iran did not even own a bank and foreign owned
banks were printing the Iranian currency and coins!
He built the Officer's University and the War University. The
grand opening of the War University was on September 24, 1935. The
Officer's University trained officers and the War University trained
And so many
other tasks which he achieved.....
For all the
above and other important dates in history of Iran, review the:
will be the proposed official calendar of Iran, post liberation.
This is how
Reza Khan built the modern Iran. "Everything Iran was, is and
will be is because of Reza Shah The Great." Name any Iranian
Industry and I will trace it back to Reza Khan. He is truly
father of the nation.
As a matter
of fact my Grand Mother was one of the first women who graduated
from The Tehran University's first graduating class! My grand
mother, thanks to Reza Shah The Great was a graduate from the first
class of scholars who came out of University of Tehran as a medical
doctor. She became a gynecologist and served her country well. One
of the first Female Doctors in Iran, she was a Lioness. She was
a big time nationalist, who served the poor people and treated them
for free. She charged the wealthy to create a balance, so she could
do the most for
her people. My grand mothers and other educated women of Iran would
have never had the chance to serve their people, if it wasn't for
Reza Khan Sardare Sepah and father of nation's reforms.
Reza is Iran and Iran is Reza ...
It has been
stated that a new era in Iran's history opened on the 1920s with
the coming to power of Reza Khan, a towering figure whose unique
personality and unique career left a deep imprint upon the life
of Iranians. Reza Khan's rapid ascent from common soldier to King
could be compared with the rise of Napoleon in France or Bernadotte
in Sweden; however, it was more striking in terms of the social
distance covered. Napoleon had the advantage of going to a military
academy before embarking on a regular army career. Bernadotte was
indeed a soldier who carried "the marshal's baton" in
his knapsack and ended as king, but a king in a foreign country,
to some extent imposed by external influence. Not so Reza Shah,
who grew up in a purely Iranian environment, assumed the imperial
rank among his own people, and thus created a real saga of a self-made
man against the background of Iran's monarchical tradition.
Khan visiting the troops. Notice the German replica uniforms and
In his national
policies two main features stood out: nationalism and modernization.
In this respect he could be compared to Peter the Great, who launched
Russia from her medieval slumber upon a path of modernity. Among
his contemporaries Reza Shah was frequently compared to his neighbor,
Kemal Ataturk of whose attitudes and reforms he was fully
aware. The two leaders had certainly a good deal in common: their
burning nationalism, their determination to modernize their countries,
and their critical attitude towards the intrusion of religion into
the public life of their respective nations. But the two also differed
considerably from each other. While Ataturk was willing to burn
the bridges with the past, Reza Shah not only maintained the connection
to the past but also promoted a revived consciousness of ancient
Achaemenian glory, particularly through architectural symbolism.
In this sense, of course, he was more fortunate because his nation
has had a long record of civilized life when the Turks were still
leading a nomadic existence in the steppes of central Asia.
Khan's simple room and study. He had a modest single bed in the
room, which he used occasionally; however, mostly he was not even
sleeping on the bed! He was sleeping on the simple featherbed mattress
on the floor! If you did not know he was the Shah, then you could
have mistaken him for a simple working class man!
You see, Reza
Khan did not wait for the people to grant him his crown and throne,
but he claimed and took his crown and throne. Maybe the disgraceful
Reza Pahlavi II, the symbol of weakness and indecision, who does
not have a drop of his grand father's essence, can learn from his
Reza Khan, The Early Days
Let us go back
in history and back to the rise of Reza Khan, savior of Iran. Reza
Khan was born on 1878 in Alasht, a village in Savad Kuh county
of the state of Mazandaran. As the son of Colonel Abbas Ali Khan,
he followed father's trade and at age 14 he joined the Cossack Brigade
originally made by Absolutist Russian Empire in Iran. His commander
was his uncle, General Nasrollah Khan. His father was Abbas Ali
Khan from Mazandaran and his mother was Noush-Afarin from Armenia.

R. Reza Khan was born in a simply small cottage in Alasht Village
of Savad Kuh County of Mazandaran Province
Reza Khan, The Youth
a Cossack trooper he worked his way up to a colonel; therefore,
he was known as Reza Khan Mir-Panj. Eventually he became a general
and then commander in chief of the army. On 1921 he made a coup
de tat and became the Minister of War. Later on he became the Prime
Minister. On 1923 he overthrow the legal constitutional monarchy
of Qajar. Why did he do that? Because it was dysfunctional.
Why Constitutional Monarchy Will Never
Work in Iran?
monarchists desire to create a constitutional monarchy in Iran.
These people are pro Reza Pahlavi and Pahlavi Dynasty. They want
to bring Pahlavi Dynasty back to power and make Reza Pahlavi a constitutional
monarch! This is laughable, because Reza Shah Pahlavi was the person
who overthrew the legal constitutional monarchy of Iran! If constitutional
monarchy is good, then why the starter of Pahlavi Dynasty made a
coup and over threw it?
constitutional monarchists claim that Islamic Republic of Iran is
an "illegal regime" and they consider the Pahlavi's
ousted monarchy the legal regime of Iran! I guess these clowns are
forgetting that Pahlavi's monarchy itself is considered illegal!
On 1925 the starter of the Pahlavi Dynasty had over thrown the
legal constitutional monarchy of Iran; therefore, the complete
reign of Pahlavi Dynasty was illegal! But then again these clowns
(today's monarchists) are all suffering from severe selective
amnesia. This is a specific monarchist disease, which only monarchists
suffer from it! When for their benefit, they recall everything but
when it is not for their benefits, they seem to forget the complete
history! Monarchists are the greatest political clowns in history
Reza Khan, a True Republican
So on 1923
Reza Khan had over thrown the legal and democratic constitutional
monarchy of Iran. Primarily he despised Monarchy and Monarchists.
He also despised Mullahs and religion. His goal was to establish
a secular nationalist republic in Iran. As the Prime Minister,
he insisted that they stop calling him "Sardar-e Sepah"
(Leader of the Army) and start calling him by his last name "Pahlavi".
So instead of Reza Khan Sardar-e Sepah, he ordered all to only
call him by the name Reza Pahlavi. Later on when he became Shah
and statesmen and courthouse were calling him Reza Shah, once
again he insisted that they stop calling him Reza Shah and if they
really care to respect him, then just call him Reza Khan. This
man was clearly and openly despised titles, Persian Flattery, Ass
Kissing, Hand Kissing and specifically Monarchy and Monarchists.
Reza Khan was a down to earth, modest man and a simple nationalist.
All his life, he lived a simple life in a simple room named his
study and he slept either in a simple single bed or on the floor.
He was a military man, a revolutionary and a determined man to change
the face and fundamental of his nation. But of course "Monarchist
School of Lies" insists to portray him as a monarchist!
The fact was that Reza Khan despised the institution of monarchy
and considered it corrupt. Reza Khan could not stand monarchists
and considered them fake and superficial. In fact non-of the great
backbones of Monarchy were true monarchists! Take a look at this
True Nature of All Great Monarchists
(Reza Shah The Great) = Closet Republican
Dr. Kourosh Aryamanesh = Closet Nationalist
Dr. Shapour Bakhtiar = Closet Secular Democrat
Dr. Fereydoun Farrokhzad = Closet Socialist
Dariush Homayoun = Closet SUMKA (Nazi)
As you can
see, the backbones of Monarchy, themselves were not monarchists,
but out of desperation and due to the oppression of monarchists,
they have blended in as monarchists so they could have made "Changes"
from within the corrupt system of monarchy!
the facts, which they do not teach you in Monarchist school of lies!
They say I am
on the crusade against monarchy!
The truth is that I am on the crusade to get Iranians out of the
Monarchists at worst live in 1800s and at best live in 1978!
Monarchy is dead and yesterday's news.
I am all about tomorrow.

Monarchs and Monarchy in a Nutshell
by today's standards is an unqualified and untalented person who
reigns only due to the fact that his father was a monarch!
by today's standards is an unqualified and untalented person whom
cannot make something of himself on his own; therefore, he needs
to suck up to a monarch via traditional hand kissing and ass kissing,
so the monarch will grant him a position which in fact he does not
deserve and he could have never achieved on his own!
act as rotting corps and monarchists act as leeches and maggots
feeding off of these corps!
institution of monarchy is the government of Under-Achievers (Monarchists)
through an Under-Achiever (Monarch) for the Under-Achievers (Monarchists)!
of government has nothing to do with secularism, federalism, democracy
and surely it is not the government of the masses. The sole reason
that today's European monarchies behave civilized is because the
masses of Europe forced them to become civilized and democratic,
or else Monarchs and Monarchists by nature are authoritarian, undemocratic,
oppressive and reactionary.
Reza Shah wanted to end Monarchy on 1925
From 1906 -
1909 the constitutional revolutionaries and constitutional monarchists
such as Satar Khan and Baqer Khan shed blood and spent many efforts
to establish a constitutional monarchy in Iran. During the reign
of Ahmad Shah Qajar (1909 - 1925), Iran was the perfect example
of a constitutional monarchy (European Style). Obviously the constitutional
monarchy did not work in Iran because the nation became on the verge
of collapse. Absolutist monarchy, also did not work in Iran, or
else people would have not committed to a grand revolution to change
it to a constitutional monarchy. So neither absolutist monarchy,
nor constitutionalist monarchy could have worked in Iran. Both systems
had their chances, both systems governed Iran and both systems failed
miserably. No one was aware of this fact, better than Reza Khan.
His goal was to end monarchy and create the first republic in Iran,
the same as what Kemal Ataturk had done in Turkey. A Secular Nationalist
Republic with Reza Khan as the first president would have been the
desired system of government for Iran. This was Reza Khan's plan.
His popularity was so high that he would have been elected for
president surely for two consecutive terms. After him, would come
one democratically elected president after another. This was Reza
Khan's logical and rational plan for Iran.
Khan visiting the Girls' Academy for the occasion of Banning the
Hejab and Liberation Day of the Iranian women. Observe the girl
scouts. Reza Khan's speech:
"You my sisters and my daughters will train the future generation
of Iran. You will have the power to be great teachers and train
a fine future generation for Iran. Avoid luxury and waste. Be simple.
Assist your fellow men. Get used to economic lifestyle. Save and
do not be wasteful. Be in full force constructive for the nation."
Monarchists and Mullahs' Sabotage
the history of Iran, Monarchists and Mullahs, Feudals and Religion
had always co-existed, cooperated and formed an unholy alliance
for the benefit of their own social classes. This is no news
that Monarchists and Mullahs had always sold the prosperity of Iran
for their personal gains. Both groups were and are always existed
in depth of corruption. Both groups were always the elite who ruled
Iran. They were too powerful to be disobeyed. Monarchists, Mullahs,
Feudals, Darbar (courthouse) and Ramals (Fortune Tellers) would
all be out of jobs and commissions if Iran would have changed to
a Republic! They were struggling to save their own necks! Without
the blessing of this combine powerful force, no one could rule Iran.
Reza Khan had the will to break the old traditional taboo and he
was determined to make a change; however, he was politically too
weak to take on this combine institute, an unholy alliance of the
Reactionaries consisting of Monarchists, Mullahs, Feudals, Darbar
(courthouse) and Ramals (Fortune Tellers). Reza Khan was forced
to become a Shah and start the Pahlavi Dynasty or else they would
have not allowed him to reign. Reza Khan figured that there would
have been a bloody civil war and by no means he was strong enough
to take on both the Monarchists (Feudals) and Mullahs (Religion).
He saw no other solution but to give in and become a Shah, so he
could have commit to a "Change" from within the
corrupt system of monarchy.
Khan at Girl's Academy during the celebration ceremony of Banning
Hejab and Liberation of the Iranian women. As you see, women had
thrown away chadors, head-scarves and lachaks and they are wearing
modern hats and dresses.
Parliament and Representatives' Sabotage
point is that even back then in the Majlis (Parliament), people
such as Mohamad Mosadeq, Hassan Modares and other then Liberal Democrats
and future Jebhe Meli members, were all against Reza Khan's firm
decision to end the corrupt constitutional monarchy and to establish
a firm lawful republic in Iran! They used to call this move,
an "authoritarian step"! These representatives
were basically the aristocracy of Iran and they did not care for
a fundamental change, yet they wanted slight reforms and superficial
democratic face for the government.
himself was an off shoot Qajar and old aristocracy. He really did
not care if the nation was going down the drain and sewerage, but
as long as democracy exists and the name of country is a constitutional
monarchy, then stick with the status quo! This was Mosadeq's mentality
even way back then! Back then Mosadeq and Mosadeqists were in
perfect harmony with the courthouse and rotten monarchists to save
the rotting constitutional monarchy of Iran!
Jendeye Meli Iran (Jebhe Meli Iran) had a history of flip-flops
and joining any which way the wind blows!
So as you
see, monarchists, mullahs, feudals, courthouse, aristocracy and
majlis were all against Reza Khan's desire to end monarchy and start
a republic. Non of these groups desired a fundamental change but
all they needed was a facelift!
Grave Mistake: Creation of Pahlavi Dynasty
Xerxes, Mithradates, Shapour, Yaqub Leis, Abbas, Nader, Reza Khan,
were the 9 Greats who had a vision and made it a reality to make
Iran great. Iran went totally off course .... in my opinion on 1925
and for sure on 1941. To create Pahlavi Dynasty was a Grave Mistake.
A mistake that ended up in 1979 Islamic Reaction. Only Fools are
still singing the Diseased Pahlavi's monarchial rule and returning
this disease to Iran songs!
There will be
no return of Monarchy in the future of Iran! History does not go
backwards! Monarchy died 28 + years ago on 1979. In my opinion,
it had to die on 1925 but Reza Khan at that time was politically
too weak to make a stand against the combined forces of Monarchists,
Feudals, Aristocrats, Mullahs, Majlis and Darbar! We cannot force
Iran and push it back in the history! Monarchy is done with and
dead for 28 + years.
History Could be Different!
Reza Khan would
have ended Monarchy on 1925. This means Alahazrat would have never
become Shah and ruled Iran, 1979 would have never happened, Monarchy
would have rested in peace on 1925, then 1953 and definitely 1979
and Mullahs Rule, would have never happened! A strong Nationalist
Secular Militant Government, in the style of Turkey would have taken
Iran to 21st century and beyond. Islam would have never become strong
and useless bums like Reza Pahlavi would have never been heard of!
Only if I could truly traveled in time, I would have stopped Reza
Khan to give in to the Monarchists on 1925!
had done to Iran on 1925, was a step short of Treason. They sold
Iran for the benefits of their own Feudal and Aristocratic social
class. Monarchy as always was and is rotten to the core.
Myth of Constitutional Monarchy
Today we have
two types of monarchists consisting of the Absolutist Monarchists
constitutionalist Clothing and then the true Constitutionalist Monarchists.
The first group are a bunch of fascists in disguise. They are no
talent thugs who cannot make it and succeed in a free democratic
and competitive regime; therefore they are in need of polishing
the balls of a grand dictator and erecting him as a Shah, so under
the shadows of his balls, they can rule Iran and be somebody. This
group is the most reactionary group aside Mullahs. In fact the great
majority of the Iranian Monarchist Movement are Absolutists in disguise
of Constitutionalists. Why am I so sure? Just take a look at everything
they have done since 1979 and see the way they conduct themselves
in public, on internet forums and in their media. No one is even
allowed to speak except themselves! These thugs are fascists in
disguise. Once they have failed before 1909 (Constitutionalist Revolution)
and once after 1925 (Re-establishment of the Absolutist Monarchy)
until the results of their fruits had miserably failed on 1979 (Islamic
Khan with Kemal Ataturk of Turkey.
Next, we have
the dreaming fools aka true Constitutionalist Monarchists who assume
that they can establish a European style monarchy in Iran. This
second group are a slim minority consisting of exile born Iranian,
young illogical monarchists (Jujeh Monarchists) and other irrational
groups which are absolutely distant from the realities of history
and Iran. This group does not learn from the history that from 1909
to 1925, we had the perfect constitutional monarchy established
in Iran, yet it had failed miserably and the nation was almost destroyed;
therefore, Reza Khan had to take action to end it.
Khan at an official visit with Kemal Ataturk of Turkey.
So as we see,
monarchy at its worst (absolutist) is a miserable dictatorship,
and at its best (constitutionalist) is a miserable dysfunctional
and backwarded regime with a puppet monarch in a monkey suit! Both
ways, the system of monarchy is an outdated, corrupt and reactionary
system of government. Some people never learn because they have

On 1941, 1953,
and then 1979, some Imperial Generals and High Ranking Officers
dropped their weapons, fled their posts, wore chadors and escaped
to save their necks.
When a real
soldier gets arrested as a prisoner of war, he shall only reveal
his name, rank and serial number. Of course there are exceptions
to this rule such as:
Imperial Generals and High Ranking Officers on 1941 (Allies Occupation),
1953 (Mosadeqist Occupation) and 1979 (IRI Occupation) whom threw
down their arms and uniforms, wore "Chadors" and fled
the battle scenes in to hiding and even exile. These brave Imperial
Generals and Officers did not even get to the point of singing their
names, ranks and serial numbers during the arrest, because they
had never gotten arrested at the first place!
were the same groups whom over and over had abandoned Iran, disarmed
themselves, took off their uniforms and put on chadors to fly the
battlefields! They were known as the world famous "Chadori
Generals" and "Chadori Officers"!
Reza Khan, a Progressive Nationalist
If we start
to discuss Reza Shah's complete history of achievements, we will
be writing documents for days! It has been stated that Reza Shah's
achievements could be summed up in three parts:
Building the infrastructure of a modern state.
2. Gaining independence from
3. Forcing socio-cultural
to the first, Reza Shah did indeed lay down the foundations without
which a modern state could not function. These included assertion
of government authority and national unification in the face of
various centrifugal and anarchistic forces; the creation of a reliable
army under national command; establishment of a modern fiscal system
based on rational organization; and development of the minimum of
communications and transportation facilities compatible with the
requirements of a modern state.
Ataturk and Reza Pahlavi. Strong men of history who changed the
paths of their nations. They don't make them like these two anymore!
Gaining of independence
from foreign occupation and control was the second major achievement
of Reza Shah. At the very outset of his rule he had to face the
threat of militant Communism imported into Iran with the advancing
Red Army which, despite the repudiation by the Bolsheviks of Tsarist
Russia's imperialistic practices, fell into the old pattern of occupying
the northern provinces of Iran and threatening the integrity of
the entire state.
for emancipation from foreign control was marked by two crises.
The first was the Soviet attempt to set up a separatist Communist
government in the province of Gilan. This required both military
and diplomatic countermeasures, the outcome being the conclusion
of the Soviet-Iranian Treaty of February 1921 and the subsequent
withdrawal of Soviet troops from Iranian territory. The treaty,
however, was negotiated by Iranian representatives in Moscow while
Reza Khan, not yet fully in power, was personally commanding military
operations against the northern rebels and their Soviet allies.
This perhaps explains why the treaty was burdened with an onerous
clause in the form of article 6 authorizing entry of Soviet troops
into Iranian territory, should the latter become a base for anti-Soviet
aggression. Although the attached memoranda made it clear that the
provision in question comprised only the toleration by the Iranian
government of the anti- Soviet activities of White Russian elements
against the Soviet territory, in subsequent years Moscow tended
to give a more comprehensive interpretation to this clause by including
in it Iran's formal ties with Western powers during the period following
World War II, which clearly was not encompassed by the terms of
the original clause. Regardless, however, of the text of the treaty
in question, Reza Shah succeeded in removing the Soviet presence
in Iran and in effectively curbing the activities of Soviet agents
and their Communist allies inside the country.
The second crisis
that the Shah faced was the one with Great Britain. It revolved
around oil, the concession for which was held by the Anglo-Iranian
Oil Company, the latter in turn controlled by the British Admiralty.
Relations between Great Britain and Iran profoundly differed from
those between Iran and Russia. Reza Shah built a new navy force.
Iran's navy bloomed during him, later on it had damaged to a point
by British. Such as gunboat "Babr," (Leopard) sunk by
the British during World War II. While Britain exercised imperial
control in India, the Persian Gulf, and the Middle East, she was
essentially a status quo power not bent on territorial aggrandizement
and not guided by a militant or aggressive ideology. Their interest
in Iran focused largely on the preservation of such economic advantages
as she or her citizens had achieved in that country. Therefore,
from the point of view of Iran's independence, Britain was not only
a country in a different category from the Soviet Union, but even
could be counted upon as providing a counterbalance to the Soviets'
actual or potential aggressive designs. This, however, did not diminish
Britain's economic self-interest, which was based on somewhat outmoded
notions regarding the relationship between the metropolis and the
colonies or semicolonies. Although the showdown between Reza Shah
and the British over oil in the early 1930s abounded in moments
of tension and recrimination, it ended by a compromise in which
rationality and restraint were displayed by both parties.
In his pursuit
of policies aiming at the safeguarding of national independence
and security, Reza Shah was ready to cooperate with the neighboring
states, which, like Iran, were anxious to safeguard their integrity
against possible Soviet expansion and subversion. To this end he
entered, in 1937, into a regional alliance known as the "Sa'dabad
Pact", the other signatories being Turkey, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Furthermore, not unlike his Constitutionalist predecessors of the
period preceding World War I, Reza Shah was inclined to look for
a friendly third force that would help Iran free herself from Soviet
menace and British influence. Thus he repeated the experiment of
1911 when an American expert, "Morgan Shuster', had been brought
to Iran to reorganize Persian finances by inviting in the early
1920s another American, "Dr. Arthur Chester Millspaugh",
to assist in the reorganization of the Iranian treasury. After some
years a German, Dr. Kurt Lindenblatt, was appointed governor of
the national bank, while numerous German technicians were invited
to advise Iran in developing her industry and communications. Although
these contacts with the United States and Germany respectively did
not represent a movement toward political or military alliance,
nevertheless they were conceived by the Shah and his ministers as
a material factor in reducing Iran's dependence upon her two powerful
Reza Shah inaugurated
the Trans-Iranian railroad, his dream which came true. The task
of rebuilding, unifying, and strengthening the state consumed so
much time and energy that to an outside observer it is little short
of amazing that Reza Shah found enough strength to enact a number
of social and cultural reforms, some of which had to be imposed
against fierce opposition from various entrenched interests. The
main thrust of these reforms was to transform the hitherto lethargic
masses into a new and enlightened citizenry that would actively
participate in the development of the country.
Reza Shah was
thus a pioneer in introducing what we may call a meritocracy in
Iran's national life. Under his reign it was not inherited wealth
or connections that counted but actual competence and performance.
He was impatient
with slothful and lazy officials and prone to dismiss or punish
those who failed in their tasks or betrayed his trust. Having a
dim view of the role played in the society by reactionary and often
semiliterate mullahs, (clerics) he took away from the religious
establishment its judicial and educational responsibilities while
developing under the state auspices a modern school system with
the University of Tehran, opened in the 1930s, at its apex. He was
also the first ruler in Iran to call for the emancipation and education
of women. Aware of the shortage of the skilled manpower in his country,
Reza Shah was willing to employ foreign experts. However, to avoid
encouraging the foreign political influence that such experts might
represent, he made it a point to hire them on an individual basis
and to place them under Iranian control. Such experts, for instance,
were employed in constructing the Shah's cherished project, the
Trans-Iranian Railway. However, he took care not to rely on technicians
of any single nationality and, furthermore, deliberately avoided
dependence on foreign governments by providing exclusively Iranian
financing of the project. Above all, he instilled in his people
a sense of pride and self-reliance.
Reza khan tried
hard to progress and push Iran to the gates of 21sth century. Whatever
Iran is, and what ever Iran has is due to his efforts. Iran was
in dark ages before him, he transformed the nation to a modern and
well-developed civilized country. His son Mohamad Reza Shah continued
in his footsteps (somewhat), and thanks to Pahlavi I and II, a backwarded
land became the Legendary Iran, which was worlds famous at the time.
If his efforts weren't done, our nation would not even existed as
one piece and as a country, which is now. The separatists of Gilan,
Kurdistan, Azerbaijan and then the Turks, the Russians, the British
all and all would have divided our nation in to many pieces, the
same way that they stole and chopped off Afghanistan, Tajikistan,
Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and other
areas from the Mother Land and fabricated those nations out of their
Any time you
see a country with the last syllable of its name ending in "istan",
you should know that, this nation was once a state belonging to
Iran, a part of our beloved Mother Persia which was cut off of our
body the same as a piece of our heart from our body. Yes, the British
and Russians had created many countries by chopping off our beloved
Persian Empire, and some disgraceful Qajar Kings deep in superstition
just sat there and watched it happen!
If it was
not for Reza Khan, our women would still be uneducated, wrapped
in veils, barefoot and pregnant, and our men would have been wearing
Kolah Namadi (Islamic beanie hat) or Turban getting no oxygen to
their brains, running around barefoot in the villages, and our nation
would have not even existed as of today's Iran!
I am truly beginning
to think that Turban and Veil or Lachak (Islamic female scarf) is
blocking and cutting off the circulation of oxygen to get to people's
brain cells through the head's skin cells! Is this why our people
are brain dead?! Is this why our clergy are brain absent?! Is this
why Sisters of Zeynab are senseless Saliteh and Akeleh wenches?!
Reza Loved Iran and Iranians
Let me tell
you a tale about this great man. Everytime he built a new railroad
bridge. Road bridge or a road tunnel, he would force the engineers
who built these constructions to stand right underneath these bridges
and tunnels, while the first trains or cars would cross them and
test drive them. He would even go as far as holding them at gun
points to stand under the bridges which they had built for the grand
openings! These episodes have been documented by may German, Iranian
and other foreign engineers. When they asked him: "Why do
you do this to us?" Reza Khan used to reply: "My
people are not wealthy and my nation is not a rich nation to throw
their money away. My people have spent their hard earning money
and taxes to build these bridges. I am here to make sure that my
people will get their money's worth and they will get a functional
construction for their money. If you people trust your own work,
then you will bet your life with it. If they collapse, you will
be the first to find out!"
man loved his nation and was a great nationalist. He was not a thief
(unlike the Pahlavis). He lived in a modest study room and slept
in a modest small bed. He often wore military clothes, even
after his military service as a colonel, general and the minister
of war. He was a shah but always in old but clean military clothing
and always wearing those old military boots! As I have stated before,
they often asked him:
When will you take off these old boots?
Until my nation becomes self-sufficient.
He wore those
boots and he secured Iran from separatist movements by stumping
on the separatists and then he wore those boots, he saved taxes
and he built Iran.
They used to
Alahazrat, what is your desire about this issue?
Reza Khan: Don't
call me Alahazrat, call me Reza Khan. I am only the "Servant
of the People".

no rotten Shah, no cheesy Aristocrat, no corrupt Feudal, yet miles
aways from them! Reza Khan was only the Servant of the Masses. Reza
Khan was a True Nationalist. They don't build them like Reza Khan
The Bridge of Victory
Khan's reign, Iran had a beautiful relation with Nazi Germany and
Axis powers. German engineers were all over Iran and building all
kinds of projects and participating in Reza Khan's plans in speedy
industrialization of Iran. Not only Germany was trading military
and non-military goods with Iran, yet the official uniforms of the
Iranian Military during Reza Khan were the replicas of Nazi Germany's
uniforms and helmets! Reza Khan was very found of Axis Powers and
had close economic ties with them. One of the main reasons for this
issue was the fact that both Iran and Germany were traditionally
nations of Aryan Race and Culture, and of course the reason was
that German engineering was world famous.
Reza Khan and Iranian Government had Axis Sympathies, yet during
the Second World War, Iran was officially a neutral nation. On 1941,
the Allied forces led by the British, Russians and Americans conducted
a combine air, land, and sea invasion of Iran. Their excuse was
that Reza Khan and Iran were in Axis with the Axis Forces. The last
thing allied needed was a petroleum rich Iran to join forces with
Nazi Germany. The reality was that they were in need of Iran's railroad
and road systems to open a root of supplies from Persian Gulf to
back then Russian borders to support Russia and opening the powerful
second front on the east to fight the Nazi Germany. Iran became
the "Bridge of Victory" for the Allies!
At first Reza
Khan started a resistance against the Allied Invasion but he was
no fool and it was pretty obvious that the Persian forces were no
match to Allied forces! On the other hand, there were a good number
of "Chadori Generals" and "Chadori Officers"
flying the battle scene! To avoid further bloodshed, he seized fire.
Reza Khan to resign his position and then practically forced him
to leave his nation to exile. Reza Khan would have never left
Iran on his own will, so the British practically kicked him out!
British forced Reza Khan out of Iran to San Mauritius Island, east
of Madagascar Island in Africa and then to Johannesburg, South Africa
where he passed away. Reza Khan had passed away on July 26, 1944.
He was 66 years old. Until this day, there exists a conspiracy theory
that the British poisoned him!
Day that Reza Khan was forced in to exile to Africa, he took a handful
of Iranian soil with him.
When he came, Iran was shattered and destroyed,
When he left, he only took a handful of soil from the Modern Iran,
which he had built.
Reza Khan was
brought to Iran and buried in Rey (Shahr-e Rey) near Tehran.
Until 1979, his mausoleum was standing tall and strong in Rey. After
the Iranian Reaction of 1979, Imam Khomeini had officially sanctioned
and banned everything related to Reza Khan! Khomeini stood for everything
that Reza Khan hated! Reza Khan and Ruhollah Khomeini were extreme
opposite sides of the Iranian Story. While Reza stood for Revolution,
Ruhollah stood for Reaction! On 1979 Khomeini ordered the mental
criminal Ayatollah Sadeq Khalkhali to destroy and level the Mausoleum
of Reza Khan.

You and I as
true nationalists of Iran will start rebuilding our nation. You
and I will change all present patterns. You will start right here
by reading IPC and educating yourselves to the history of Iran.
We shall start when Reza Khan stopped on 1925 or 1941. We will continue
where Reza Khan was forced to stop. On 1925 Reza Khan stopped due
to sabotage of the corrupt monarchists and mullahs. On 1941 Reza
Khan stopped due to sabotage of the British. Today, we start where
Reza Khan stopped. We shall continue the path to salvation thus
this is our only choice and we are destined to continue this path
to greatness to regain our place in the world. Iran will rise again;
Persian Empire will be revived. We will make sure of it. Read:

true nationalists of Iran also down with the cause?
Who was the Real Reza Khan?
Reza Khan had
a long face and a wide Aryan forehead. Reza Khan was tall and had
broad shouldered. On top of his nose, there was a scar, which had
caused by a sword during one of his campaigns. His eyes were hypnotizing
and his character was charismatic. When he spoke, masses listened.
He had a charismatic effect on the masses. When he was kind, he
was most lovely and calm but when he was mad, no one would dare
come near him!
always talked less and thought more. He was always in search
of solutions for Iranian problems. He was a visionary, a planner
and a problem solver.
was a simple man. He was a modest man. He dressed very modest except
in special occasions. He was always wearing his old military uniform
and old military boots!
Reza Khan was
very curious, always asking questions and learning everything that
he did not know. His most joyful moments were when he would learn
something totally new. He had a background of very little education
and he started as a soldier in early age of 14. All his life he
had no time to educate himself because he was always running around
and serving his nation as a soldier, colonel, general, commander
in chief of armed forces, war minister, prime minister and then
shah; therefore, after his coronation, he had more time to educate
himself about the global general knowledge.
One of his most
important characteristics was that he truly never mingled with foreigners,
except when this consorting would result in building Iran, for instance
his relation with German engineers and diplomats. On the contrary,
he was always consorting with Iranians and masses of Iran from all
walks of life. His favorite socializing often occurred during
his travels and it was with the working classes, labors and farmers
of Iran. He truly loved Iran and Iranians.
Where did Mohamad Reza Pahlavi and Reza
Pahlavi II went wrong?
face was always sunburned and dark, simply because he was always
outdoors running around, fighting the enemies of Iran, building
Iran or travelling around the country, living amongst the masses
and inquiring about their needs. You see, this is where Mohamad
Reza Pahlavi and Reza Pahlavi II came short. When Alahazrat thrown
the 2500 Years Celebration of the Persian Empire, no Iranian was
allowed to witness it except the elite and the foreign leaders!
With Reza Khan, it was different. Reza Khan did not care to consort
and hang around with foreigners. He loved to travel, communicate
and live amongst his own people. He was constantly dealing, talking
and trading opinion with Iranians all around Iran. Reza Khan's love
and joy was that he was from the masses and he lived amongst the
masses. In contradiction, Mohamad Reza Pahlavi and Reza Pahlavi
II were never amongst the masses, neither they had lived with the
masses or connected with the masses! They always had distant
themselves from the masses. The only initiation which Alahazrat
(Mohamad Reza Pahlavi) took to capture the heart of the masses was
the "White Revolution of Shah and The People" and even
that sounded great on paper but never became a full-blown hard-core
revolution! Specifically during the final years of his reign, Alahazrat
had become absolutely detached from the masses and he became a fascist
megalomaniac who considered himself "The Father" of his
people who was above the masses! This is absolutely 180 degrees
opposite of how Reza Khan conducted his affairs with his people
and the masses of Iran.
There were no
connection between Alahazrat and the masses. On 1978 when millions
rushed the streets to openly show their hatred for the Shah, it
was pretty clear that how Iranians really felt about Alahazrat!
Reza Pahlavi II's failure as a leader also rests in the fact that
he was never one of the masses and he had always distant himself
away from the masses and surrounded himself amongst the second most
reactionary group of Iranians which are the monarchists (the most
reactionary group of Iran are the Mullahs). Reza Pahlavi has a circle
of hand kissers and ass kissers around him. These are the same group
who surrounded his father and caused him to distant himself from
the masses and finally caused his downfall. The same group of monarchists
had caused Reza Pahlavi II to become distant from the masses and
an irrelevant figure in politics of Iran. These Hand Kissers surround
the monarch and give him a false perception of himself. They falsely
boost monarch's ego to the point that his head starts floating in
the sky like a balloon! These Khayeh Mals (Ball Polishers) eventually
create dictators and then cause the dictator's downfall. The son
had never learned from the mistakes of his father. Neither the father
nor the son had fully followed the path of Reza Khan!

everything else Iranian was leveled by the order of Khomeini, father

of Iran by illiterate Muslim.
To Reza Khan
Alas O alas,
Reza Khan where
are you today to see that everything which you had done and all
of your efforts had ended in nothingness. The nation that you tried
so hard for 16 years to build, went back 200 years and worst than
it was before you and the same as it was during Qajar's constitutional
monarchy. All the effort has wasted.
Reza Khan, not
to worry, not all is destroyed! As long as our hearts are beating,
the children of Iran will one-day rise up and revive the Mother
Persia. Only then, will be the time to end the Darkest Islamic Religious
Reaction of the black and for once and for all free the Mother Persia
from the chains of religious and superstitious ignorance. Reza Khan,
not to worry, not to weep in thine lonely grave, we are here and
we will revive our nation. Reza Khan we the sons and daughters of
Iran will take a solemn oath to rid our nation from the traitors
and back forces of reaction. Reza Khan we will rebuilt Iran and
will do it under your guidance. We will revive our lost dignity
and pride; "The Pure Persian Pride". Reza Khan
may your Great Spirit rest in peace thus we have not given up!
of Nation, Reza Shah The Great, simply a legend.
Lo Reza Khan,
rest in peace thus we are awake and we shall continue the struggle.
