This is the case no matter who is the ruler!
It's the culture, including the Shiit Islam, that has not 'delivered'

he was strangely pacific; his suffering, old & new, was always
there to make

famous writer who was drowned in the river. He told him many things
& how he'd eliminate it. He gave Paydar books by Russian writers.

& mother hadn't been religious. His mother believed in God,
believed more in humans. His mother told him "if you ask
a little child not to do
a bad thing, & reward him if he doesn't do that, it is OK,
because he's a child.
But if he grows up & understands himself, & you still
reward him for the good things
he has done, you are insulting him."
In the late
70s, Paydar goes to UK to do a higher degree, with his wife &
when he was 12, mother had to work stitching clothes to support
kids, yet he was able to go to UK to study & take his wife
& kids with him?! Not
only such things could happen in the old regime to a 'revolutionary
who was against the regime, US$ was 7 tomans & economy was
booming. Yet the idiots
went on strikes to bring the regime down in the biggest goh-khori
of their lives.
But the idiot doesn't admit that he owes so much to the old regime;
in fact, if it
wasn't for the old regime, he could've been a stupid mullah or
amaleh. Hell, even
I owe the old regime for not being a mullah.

it spoke of the economy
that had kept him in work, & given him savings; & it spoke
of the strength &
purchasing power of the currency.
It's interesting that even an outsider, like the author, sees
very clearly how
much the old regime did for Miran, but the stampeding cattle have
to admit it. Even though it's been proven that the old regime
was not 'cruel',
compared to all its opposition groups, & it did so much for
the damn country,
the cattle still hide behind their EGO, telling lies to justify
& stupidity & Goh-khori.

they could find, yet the old regime not only educated the idiots,
but they even
could go to US/UK to study. Yet, the Goh bully traitors even protested
the regime in US/UK.
Yet, to this
day, they still go on talking about how Savak had put 100 of them
in jail; but never mention how the mullahs tortured & raped
& killed more than
100,000 of them, or alllllll of them if they could.
still, every Goh opposition group of 78, would've been far worst
their killing & torture to force the cattle into total submission,
yet, they still
talk about Savak.

capitalists. I was very cynical. I thought they were responsible
for our miseries

my eyes to
lots of things. Those revolutionaries who thought like me did
the same thing."
So he is basically saying:
he was too stupid, too young, too cocky, too bully, too domineering,
too naive, yet he wanted the old regime to hand over the power
to him & let this
savage idiot to rule, because he had read Gorky's mother &
was 'upset' that he
saw his mother 'suffer'?!!!
All this when
the old regime had top educated people like aamuzgaar & hoveydaa

in a country full of savage
To top things
off, not only the savage cattle even claim to have 'voted' for
mullahs to take over the power to destroy their education &
treat them far worst
than the old regime ever did. But, the same very cattle who claim
to have been
ane-qollaabi, put up with the filthy corrupt mullahs for over
25 years, while
constantly crying & mourning for their destroyed lives &
children, & damn country.
But they still
talk about 'Savak'. Obviously there is something terribly wrong

the F* is that 'freedom & equality' now?
Even the KK Imam said "freedom will lead to prostitution"!
So he took
part in demonstration in UK & handed out leaflets to people.
At the time Khomeini was getting popular with the revolution.
"We heard about him
quite late in England. I felt the religious people were keeping
him secret. He
wasn't there at first, in the revolution. It was on 78 that people
started to hear
about him. .. I had to make a difficult decision. I was not a
religious person. I
was a Marxist. But Khomeini was a religious man who was heading
the revolution. The
only party which side with Khomeini at that time was the Tudeh
automatically I was attracted to that party."
Jendeyeh-melli also sided with that KK.
a lot of misgivings. I'd tell friends, 'we may win the revolution,
culturally we will go back a 1000 years."
I think this
is pure bullshit. This must be his EGO talking, trying to look
in front of the foreign writer. All the KK vultures were so excited
over the power, that their first goal was to remove the old regime,
take care of the 'stupid mullahs', because nobody had much respect
for the mullahs,
not even Khari-at-i himself or his stupid supporters.
It seems to
me he's talking as if he was in charge, which shows the arrogance
urge-to-dominate in such people.
But his uneducated

didn't let me learn

said 'you should never
send your daughter to one of these schools. These schools are
satanic centers for
women'." This had been in 1925, when she was 7. She never
forgave them because she
loved knowledge & books.
I rest my
case. Not all Miranian were stupid enough not to have known the
nature of the KK mullahs. Even some of the uneducated ones knew
how filthy the
that he claims to have become ane-qollaabi because he saw his

seem to carry resentment

by everyone. When she died in the hospital all the nurses &
the doctor himself cried.
The reason was, she cared about everyone there." Yes indeed,

highly educated people know that Khomeini had Kasravi murdered?

& fraudulence his
eyes - seemingly so close to tears when he entered - brightened,
began to twinkle:
a glimpse there of old mischievousness, with something of the
man of 79 showing
Khalkhalli was the hanging judge, Montazeri, as Khomeini's second-in-command,
had sometimes been even more zealous than his master. When Khomeini
had said that
the revolution should concentrate on the young, that people over
40 were useless,
Montazeri had gone one stage further. Pensions were useless, he
had said: dead
trees should be cut down. People still remembered that.
Wow! The KK Imam was over 70 & said people over 40 were useless!
As for 'people
remembering', Miran doesn't have people, it has pee-pole, peeing-poles
mullahs, who have pee'd on them for centuries. If Miran had people,
never ever let mullahs to pee all over them for over 25 years.
asked how he assessed the revolution now. He talked for some time,
using a lot of meaningless words, & Mehrdad's short translation
of what he said
was that a beginning had been made. How much of a beginning? Thirty
per cent. I
saw an opening; & he must have seen what was going to come.
Because, before I
could ask about the 70% that still had to be done, he said he
was tired. The
eyes that twinkled while he talked or lectured became dead, the
Not bad hah? F* the country, kill & rape & torture &
hang so many, almost lose a
war & get millions killed, shit on religion & any compassion
people ever had, but
now say it was just a beginning?!

leave & Mehrdad said 'did you see the gun?' Emami said he
enemies now. Mehrdad said, 'they are like enemies to each other.
The old timers
& the new people'.
They end up going to Emami's flat for something to eat. He had
started at a
theological school in Tehran at 16, moved to Qom, & had had
spent 14 years there
as a student/talebeh. He had a 2 yo child & had a grant of
$50 from his ayatollah.
He earned little extra doing teaching & translation. He wanted
to be a propagator
of the faith. He said he wasn't the classical talebeh, the son
of the poor family
looking in Qom for free food & lodging, his father was a businessman,
So this idiot
must've become talebeh after the goh-khori, & after the killings,
yet he & his family were stupid enough not to 'see' or cruel
enough not to 'care',
& get into a shit religion, when its clergy had proven that
they were corrupt &
had this idea of the vocation; it was sufficient explanation of
years of study; he couldn't step outside of himself to consider
his life & motives.
His world had rigid limits. What passed with him for learning
was really only a
way of learning the rules. To know the rules was to simplify life,
& Emami was
a profoundly obedient man. It was what was required by the faith
& the revolution;
every day in the newspapers there was a message like that.
Emami said that there were 25 thousand khar-students in Qom, mainly
Pakistani, African & a few Europeans. There were also a fair
number of Arabs,
but the Arabs made the place dirty! He spoke conversationally
& without malice.
Author senses some form of uneasiness in Iranians about Arabs,
who had been both
their conquerors & the givers of their religion.
This 25 thousand
in interesting to me, author even says Qom is much bigger now.
Emami was brainwashed at 16. it seems to me brainwashing has been
far worst in
Miran after KIR took over. Not only they killed or forced many
into exile, they even forced their version of Shiit onto the young.
Miranian Olympic hero shouts abuli-duduli-faz when he lifts heavy
author's driver gets upset that he didn't pay at the shrine &
that's why his car
broke down; so he forces everyone to go to the shrine so he could
pay & do do'aa
for their safe return. All the suffering & pain has also prevented
rational thinking & actions.
Emami lives in a 2 room rented flat at the edge of Qom. The concrete
front room was
bare, apart from shelves of books on one wall. The bareness of
the room surprised
Mehrada. Bertrand Russel's problems of philosophy was there too!
Author asked if
Emami knew of the loss of faith in some of the young. He said
it was no secret,
"our enemies know our weakness". He was asked who he
meant by the 'enemies', he
said, with gentleness, "the countries of the West; they want
to wipe out Islam".
'gentleness' is due to the fact that he is not deprived from sex,
being married; unlike many of the young ane-qollaabi-yun of 78.
Here we go
again: "enemies nemizaarand", "evil doesn't let
us", "evil prevents
them from turning the world into heaven". What kind of idiot
would want to become
a mullah at 16, after seeing what the mullahs did, what kind of
allow his son become a mullah?! He keeps Russel's book, but follows
at the last year of the war, he had gone to the front to do Islamic
propaganda for about 2-3 months. He hadn't fought & for him

them to a theological school. The principal took them around to
them the special-project rooms. He opened a door & scared
the shit out of the
'scholar' who was resting or napping on the floor, with a blanket
& a pillow!
Scholar was an elderly his-to-rian, who was writing a book called
history of the world. He held the brown blanket around his middle

women in the streets held their black chadors below their chin.
He had been doing

On the way
to Tehran, the driver began to talk about Emami & his trip
to the front,
saying that the clerics didn't get the real meaning of the war.
Even if he'd gone 6
times to the front, with 2 days going & 2 days coming back,
he had to spend 24 days
traveling, & the rest of the time, talking. He said Emami
was doing quite well,
living in his own flat. He (driver) was still living with his
how many idiots the mullahs brainwash to 'study' in Qom, their
is based on nothing but shit, even the vast majority of the Muslims
in the world
don't consider the Shiite as 'Islam'.
One day, author told Mehrdad that Freydoun was a 'religious man'.
This got to
Mehradad, who asked "what do you mean by a religious person?
I have a problem
with the word you use. You called Freydoun religious, & he
himself thinks he is
pagan." He then explained that "a pagan was someone
outside the public religion.
Here we have ways of judging whether a person is religious. The
first way is their
appearance. Beards. ..." And he talked about how resting
forehead on the cake/tablet
of earth, darkens the color of the skin; and a few other things.
He also said that
he wasn't a religious person, never fasted, didn't pray, didn't
go to a mosque, &
didn't obey the rules.
