Judgment of the Pahlavi Dynasty in the History

Reza Shah the Great (1925 -1941)
Reza Shah was one of the 9 great shahs of Iran. Reza Shah was the last of the 9 great shahs of Iran. Reza Shah the Great was the designer and the director of the Modern Iran. Let’s face it, trace the roots of almost every element and aspect of the Iranian society and it will lead up to Reza Shah! If there was no Reza Shah, today’s Iran in its present form would have not existed.

Reza Shah the Great built:
Iranian Railways System
Iranian Modern Roadways System
Tehran University
Reza Shah Kabir Academy
Cement Industry
Iranian Navy
Iranian Air Force
Modern Iranian Army
Bank Meli Iran
War University

Reza Shah the Great:
Took the Hejab off of women’s heads
Entered women in to the work force
Made the basic education mandatory and free
Industrialized and Modernized Iran
Banned the Capitulation Law

I can keep on going and going …… but the fact does not change that almost for everything that we have today, we must thank Reza Shah. This is not fiction but it is a fact that Reza Shah the Great is the Father of Nation and the Designer of the Modern Iran.

How can you tell that Reza Khan was a True Nationalist?
Because IRI destroyed his mausoleum!
IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran) AKA (Also Known As) the AIOG (Arabo-Islamic Occupational Government) is against everything Iranian and pro everything Arabo-Islamic. So when AIOG bans something, destroys something or belittles someone in the history of Iran, then you must comprehend that whatever IRI states or writes in history books are lies and they are the Islamic Versions of reality and the revised history (Islamic Style)!

When IRI destroys his statues and levels his tomb, then you must comprehend that surely Reza Khan was a great Iranian Nationalist because these Half-Breed Hezbollah Baboons despise Iranian Nationalism and they promote Islamic Internationalism.

When IRI is against someone then he must be a great man!

The truth is written and all you have to do is to read the true history of Iran (preferably in IPC) and educate yourselves on what has really happened in Iran.

Why does IRI Despise Reza Shah the Great?
Because he was an Iranian Nationalist!
IRI reversed everything that Reza Khan has done (as much as they could).
For instance,

Reza Khan took the hejab off of women’s heads and faces.
IRI put it right back!
Reza Khan took turbans, kolah namadi, aba and labadeh off of men’s bodies.
IRI put them right back!
Reza Khan took Islam out of the government, state affairs and politics.
IRI put it right back!
Reza Khan taught progress and modernization.
IRI teaches Islam, Theocracy and Religious Garbage!
Reza Khan taught Iranian Nationalism.
IRI teaches Islamic Internationalism!
Reza Khan educated Iranians to their rich Persian History.
IRI teaches Shiite and Bull Shiite!
Reza Khan praised and promoted Iranian Historical Characters.
IRI worships and promotes Arab Murdering Prophet, Imams and Saints!
Reza Khan was a student of Cyrus, Darius, Yaqub and Nader.
IRI worships Ali, Hassan, Hussein and other Arab Barbarian Rapists, Thieves and Killers!
Reza Khan Worshiped Iran.
IRI Worships Testicles of Islam and Allah (Beyzatayn-e Islam)!
Reza Khan was about Pure Persian Pride.
IRI is about the stench of a week old unwashed sox at the Mosque gate (while Muslims take off their shoes to go in and pray)!
Reza Khan has become Eternal.
IRI will fade away as soon as we overthrow it!

I can keep on writing about Reza Khan from here to eternity but instead I suggest for you to read:

Reza Shah the Great, the Real Story

Iran History

Mohammad Reza Pahlavi Shah of Iran 1941 - 1979

Mohammad Reza Shah (1941 – 1979)
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi has made many mistakes, some small yet some grave; however, he has also done many goods for Iran and Iranians. It is unfair to judge a man only by his worst mistakes and terrible flaws. No one is perfect and everyone has done mistakes. We must judge a character by putting his mistakes and his services on both pans of the scale and see what has he actually done and achieved.

Wrong or right, bad or good, he made many mistakes and he had many flaws; however, he has done some substantial efforts and he has made some fundamental changes for the better of Iran and Iranians.

As I have always stated,

Alahazrat Homayoun, Bozorg Arteshdaran, Nure Ariyai, Shahe Shahan, Shahe Iran Zamin, Pahlaviye Dovom, Shahanshah Aryamehr, Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi ……

Underneath all the titles, was only a simple Iranian Nationalist. Believe my words because I was there and grew up in the Imperial Court and Cabinet. I witnessed the man up close. Have in mind that I am his greatest critic (just read my writings) and I blame him for many catastrophes, but I am also a fair judge of characters. Alahazrat (and I still refer to him by this title because that is what we called him back then) in person was only a simple Iranian Nationalist.

You can believe the garbage written in your Islamic Story books (IRI Schools History Text Books),
You can believe in my words.

You can believe in the Islamic Regime’s rhetoric,
You can believe in History.

You can believe in Mullahs Rants,
You can believe in your Lying Eyes!

The history has already passed her judgment on him,
Now, you will be the judge.

I can continue on but I suggest for you to read:

Persian Cultural Month

Consider this book as your present for the:

2012 (2571 Shahanshahi) Persian Cultural Month (Month of March)

Persian Cultural Month

Why Persian Imperial Year (PIY) Calendar?

Why Change Persian Alphabet from Tazi to Latin?

Persian Latin Alphabet


Writing, compiling, designing and publishing this book was a grand task which took a long time and took a lot of efforts but it was all for the great cause to keep our Persian culture and history alive and to educate the young future generation about our rich culture and history.

I sincerely hope that this book had shed some lights on your knowledge of ancient Iranian military history. At the present time when the AIOG (Arabo-Islamic Occupational Government) AKA IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran) is trying so hard to De-Persianize and Arabize our culture, we the IPC have a mission to protect and serve the Persian Culture. This is how we keep our 8000 years old culture alive.

I shall end this book right here and right now. The “Pictorial History of the Iranian Military Uniforms” ends at the end of the Pahlavi Era, simply because 1979 is the year that Iran has died and IRI was born! 1979 is the year that I stopped being an Iranian Citizen because on this date Iran seized to exist. IRI Military Uniforms are not Iranian but they are Islamic and they should be included in the “Pictorial History of the Islamic Military Uniforms”! IRI Era is part of the Islamic History and not the Iranian History.

This book will continue on after the End of IRI Era when Iran will be born again! Only then, I will once again become an Iranian Citizen and I will continue the rest of this book writing about the Iranian Military Uniforms in the future “Free Iran”. Until then, keep reading the history of Iran in IPC and keep Iran alive in your hearts.


More power to all freedom fighters of Iran

Pure Persian Pride
