Anniversary of Dr Mossadegh's death

Forty three years since the death of Iran's premier democrat, secularist, civic nationalist and liberal thinker, Iran more than ever before is in need of Dr Mossadegh's ideals.


  1. I like your honesty by saying "in the hearts of MOST Iranians".... Of course not every body worships this pro-Soviet man.

  2. Tbh I didn't even make the above picture, however, whoever did obviously knew just how namak nashnas some Iranians can be, in that they don't realise a good thing even when it's staring them in the face!

  3. I'm confused, Arash. You make sense most of the time. and now you praise this traitor to your people. Even the Iranians finally turned on him, until the khomeini and the mullahs decided to make him a hero and use him for their propaganda against the Shah.
    I did just discover your blog and haven't read everything you have posted, but....

  4. No, not at all.

    Iranians turned out into the streets in their thousands after Kermit Roosevelt's first attempt at the coup failed. They turned out in support of Mossadegh and the fragile Iranian constitutional democracy. I really recommend the book "All the Shah's Men" by Stephen Kinzer.

    The Mullahs too have never been with Mossadegh, much less making a hero of him. Khomeini refused to support the secular Mossadegh in the 1950s, and the Fadayan-e-Eslam terrorist group tried to kill Mossadegh. Since the founding of the Islamic Republic, the Mullahs have ignored Mossadegh and heaped praise on the traitorous turncoat Ayatollah Kashani.

    The only people who view Dr Mossadegh as a "traitor" are diehard supporters of the Pahlavi dictatorship and diehard supporters of the Islamic dictatorship.
