    The story of the Iranian revolution deserves a series of at least 10 episodes in order to cover every important aspect of the sociopolitical story of the country. There should be plenty more material lying around, hidden, forgotten and archived in books, libraries, museums and historical records of foreign governments everywhere. A very heart rending story of a country devastated by unfortunate upheavals, but with its people still very generous and welcoming to the outside world, bearing no ill will towards it, despite having every reason to complain.

      You’re wrong totally, shah himself was a religion man, and his first ever swore and first sentence in his memories was to do everything and anything in his power to expand and strengthen the Shiite branch of Islam. His father’s first 12 ministers were all mullas, there’s 2 Iran, one idiots like you , the one the hides it true face from the rest of the world. Theses so called mullas and fanatics hate Islam , that’s why they invented Shiite to separate us from being Arab and Arab’s virgin of Islam, if Islam was perfect why did we have to become Shiite in the first place? If Islam is so bad how come west is allied with most extremists and frantic Muslims in turkey and Saudi Arabia?
      Ask anyone in Iran, if Islam was more respected in shah time or current time?
      You’ll never find a speech from The Supreme Leader that talks about Islam or Mohammad, he’s always talking about Iran, Farsi language which he speaks better than anyone. Technologies, nuclear power and Iran has become top 6 most powerful military in the world under so called mullas.

This seems to be a very interesting documentary, but I only can enjoy some 60%. And I suppose many other people will think the same.

    The Iranian monarchy fell because the Shah was unwilling to kill easily. He could have assassinated Khomeini many times. But didnt. He’s similar to Louis XVI of france who could have had the 3rd estate representatives all hanged but hesitated to do so. If you will be an absolute monarch, never think twice about killing your opponents.

      2. The people get pissed off that your are trying to intimidate them and become more rebellious and start a revolution.

      For all of those who think it is ideal if Muslim women are not financially dependent on men:
      Would it be ideal if Muslim men were not sexually dependent on their women? For example would it be ideal if men could purchase (at low cost) harems of docile life-like forever-young sex robots?
      How would you respond to Muslim men who justified this by saying such robots are necessary to give men true independence, such that they are not forced to stay in relationships with women who are rude, jealous, controlling, manipulative, fat, old, or ugly?
      How would you respond to Muslim men who said that Muslim women need to "step up their game" such that men choose to be with them instead of a robot that is more friendly, beautiful, young, and thin?
      The cop out answer is to say sex robots are haram, but there are other conceivable halal alternatives that would do the same thing: flood men with cheap alternatives. Obviously such alternatives would weaken and ultimately destroy marriage because it takes away the dependence that men have on women for sex.
      But that is literally what giving women financial independence does; it makes them independent from men. And that's why no society or religion ever did give women that independence, except for our current dystopia.

We were at a party where we got talking and were sort of bored so he asked me if he I wanted to have a tour of the son's yacht. Two million dollars in the Eighties. He had plans for a much bigger one on the table that we looked at. The next day my French wife and I were invited by the yacht captain to a party at an airport where the son of the Shah was flying his sabre jets and whatever. He collected antic jets and flew them. The party was small and I shook hands with the son but we didn't speak much. He paid for all the fuel that the aviators used in the show. There were lots of antique jets.

    The 1979 revolution proved to be a regrettable decision, as it resulted in the loss of a thriving economy, social liberties, and progress towards a positive future. Instead of resorting to overthrowing the regime, dissatisfied individuals could have pursued avenues for change within the existing system. Under the leadership of Alahazrat Mohamad Reza Shah Pahlavi, Iran experienced significant development and prosperity, but unfortunately, his departure led to the downfall of our nation, the erosion of our freedoms, and numerous other setbacks.

      Time museum was not a Pahlavi palace. It belonged to a successful businessman called Hossein Khodadad which was confiscated by the revolutionary forces in 1979. Poor man fled to the US with only couple of hundred dollars in his pocket as all his assets were confiscated. If he remained in Iran, he would be executed. However in the US after a period of hard work he once again became a successful person and now owns a multimillion dollar business.
      It's indeed a beautiful place, it is close to where I used to live and I always met my friends there at its coffee shop. Mr. Khodadad in one of his interviews said that if he knew his house would one day become a place for people to spend good times he'd build 10 of them. He's a good man.

      "Liberalism endorses war (e.g., colonialism, humanitarian intervention, military occupation) to impose its law (international human rights law) across the world. Therefore liberalism approves killing people across the world. Liberals are dangerous - your liberal neighbor literally wants to knife your little daughter and then blow up the local mosque."
      Why do so many idiots find the first argument logical and compelling, while they find the second argument illogical and absurd? Aren't both arguments illogical and absurd?
      Do you want to know why the US is broke and subject to an increasingly totalitarian surveillance regime?
      It is because the American people allowed themselves to be duped by absurd arguments into endorsing the "Global War on Terrorism" - spending 8 trillion dollars and agreeing to give the government unlimited surveillance/policing powers in the name of "fighting terrorism/extremism" as characterized by the first argument above.

    Iranian people are far more secular and less religious but their state is forcing it and applying strict Islamic laws although Iran is more diverse ethnically and religiously.
    Egypt on the other hand the state is secular, no law forces women to cover their hair but the people are more religious wether they are Muslims or Christians.
    One major difference is the attitude torwards religion, I spoke to few Iranians during my visit and their ideas are the state is backward because it's Islamic regime and if a person is religious he is backward while in Egypt it's different.

      In the contemporary era of the darkness of Globalism and pseudo-socialism where the zombies fond of the immoral western cult fail to see the western scavengers in Iran, scrapping off and eating the resources of the common masses layer by layer, plundering their wealth, turning them into slaves and honey trapping the so-called elites by offering them the materialistic comforts, the Pro-west, pro-immorality, pro-molestation/deceit/lies/greed/brothels stooges of western colonists are living in a fool's paradise, thinking that they can "destabilise" Iran. NOT EVEN IN YOUR DREAMS CAN YOU DESTABILIZE A NATION/GOVERNMENT THAT STANDS FOR TRUTH, JUSTICE, MORALITY, AND ETHICAL CODES OF CONDUCT AND ARE NOT AT ALL FOND OF THE MATERIALISTIC (FAKE) PLEASURES THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER.
      There are a billion ways to prove that the American, rabid regime in particular and the west, in general, want a regime change in Iran for their benefit. As a matter of fact, they won't, in the long run, help the nefarious elements they have put in place to bring in the "destabilization" as they have a habit of abandoning them and rightly done so as the stooges are worth even the worst kind of treatment. THE UNSCRUPULOUS ELEMENTS HAVE BEEN LONGING FOR THE RULE OF IMMORALITY, INJUSTICE, AND BLOOD-SUCKING PARASITES TO RETURN TO IRAN, BUT ALAS, IN VAIN, AND THEY WILL DIE AS THEY DIED LONGING FOR THE SAME.

      The old culture of Iran was based on good thoughts, good deeds and good paroles, hospitality also was another basic action of Iranians. So Khomeini was a person from India some say from Laknow and some talks about kintoor near Amritsar. Who ever he was he could not speak in persian. His scentces were short and made of three words. Some says he was a sikh from panjub and the sign on the Iranian flag is a holly sign of the sikhs. As sikhs never wear yellow and orange turban in arab countries his grand father who worked in british consulate in Najaf came to Iran and wore black turban. This induced Iranians in a big mistake, they thought he was a holly muslim and descendent of peophet of Islam.

    If you want to understand the Shah's downfall, you must put it in the proper context. Support for the Islamic radicalism came from the west first . the primary reason was that Islam was the best bulwark against communism and the Soviet Union influence in the region and the rapid growth of Iran and the shah not being absolutely an obedient puppet. The Shah was just one of the regimes that had to be toppled in that era. Started in Afghanistan , then Egypt and then all over the region. The U.S. created the Talibans in Afghanistan. This was a geopolitical decision that was made at the highest level . No matter what the Shah did , he had to go . The documentary fails to mention why or who forced the Shah's father to abdicate to begin with . Why was he living in exile in Africa when your own son is supposedly the king and why Africa ? Because the Reza Shah was pro Aryan and the Nazi regime in Germany . As a matter of fact Hitler used to send happy Persian new year card to Iran and greeting them as Aryans. The meaning of Iran is the land of Aryans. Some people would like to rewrite history the way they see fit for their purpose but the truth will come out soon or later. God bless all the good people of this world.

    The Shah was NOT an American puppet when he was overthrown in 1978-79, but you need to understand the history and context. He WAS a puppet when the CIA-MI6 restored him to full power in the 1953 coup by toppling Mossadegh, who was basically a left-wing nationalist who wanted full independence. At the height of his power in the 60s and 70s the Shah had become an independent global player, who was pro-Western but also had very good relations with the Soviets (there were 5,000 Soviet advisers and technicians in Iran working in various projects, and beginning in 1967 the Shah also started buying arms from Moscow). The Iranian intellectuals and students were mostly Marxist and never forgave the Shah for his American ties, the radical Muslim clerics opposed the Shah because of his modernization, and most educated people disliked the press censorship and authoritarianism. Ironically, the new middle class that the Shah created was also against him.

Ironic is, in 8th century, Islam invaded Persia brutality during the Sassinid empire. Im surprised that they willingly let themselves be subjugated by this inferior religion when Persia was one of the great civilization on earth. I think partly because Islam is very rigid and it tells its followers that its wrong to criticize Islam. That Islam is the "best" and pagan Persia is wrong. That Islam is the "light" and period before Islam is the "jahiliya". Ironically, Islamic period is the "jahiliya". 😌

      Yes, but what kind of government do the Persians want? Islam plays a great part in government politics with Arabian countries. How can you get away from fundamentalism when The Quran is part of your every fiber? Do you want the Monarchy restored, to some degree? Do you want a Democracy? What do the Persians want?

    The Shah is a legend. How is that possible to be this accurate about the world? He was right on point answering questions. His wisdom is unbelievable. He was surely ahead of his time and ahead of his countrymen of the time, who apparently could not understand his superbly accurate vision. No wonder that Iranian new generations now chant slogans in favour of the Shah and his son Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi these days in the streets of Iran.
    The 1979 revolution proved to be a regrettable decision, as it resulted in the loss of a thriving economy, social liberties, and progress towards a positive future. Instead of resorting to overthrowing the regime, dissatisfied individuals could have pursued avenues for change within the existing system. Under the leadership of Alahazrat Mohamad Reza Shah Pahlavi, Iran experienced significant development and prosperity, but unfortunately, his departure led to the downfall of our nation, the erosion of our freedoms, and numerous other setbacks.

      ​@@mja72For all of those who think it is ideal if Muslim women are not financially dependent on men:
      Would it be ideal if Muslim men were not sexually dependent on their women? For example would it be ideal if men could purchase (at low cost) harems of docile life-like forever-young sex robots?
      How would you respond to Muslim men who justified this by saying such robots are necessary to give men true independence, such that they are not forced to stay in relationships with women who are rude, jealous, controlling, manipulative, fat, old, or ugly?
      How would you respond to Muslim men who said that Muslim women need to "step up their game" such that men choose to be with them instead of a robot that is more friendly, beautiful, young, and thin?
      The cop out answer is to say sex robots are haram, but there are other conceivable halal alternatives that would do the same thing: flood men with cheap alternatives. Obviously such alternatives would weaken and ultimately destroy marriage because it takes away the dependence that men have on women for sex.
      But that is literally what giving women financial independence does; it makes them independent from men. And that's why no society or religion ever did give women that independence, except for our current dystopia.

    The old culture of Iran was based on good thoughts, good deeds and good paroles, hospitality also was another basic action of Iranians. So Khomeini was a person from India some say from Laknow and some talks about kintoor near Amritsar. Who ever he was he could not speak in persian. His scentces were short and made of three words. Some says he was a sikh from panjub and the sign on the Iranian flag is a holly sign of the sikhs. As sikhs never wear yellow and orange turban in arab countries his grand father who worked in british consulate in Najaf came to Iran and wore black turban. This induced Iranians in a big mistake, they thought he was a holly muslim and descendent of peophet of Islam.
    A revelution begun from a black turban or head cover? at the base of a lie?
    that man was cold without regret and he had a high opinion of himself.
    All prists know latin, he did not know even arabic. Good thoughts did not allow iranians think he is not in order, hospitality wasanother reson. So all enjoyed of a destruction of a great empire excepte Iranians !!!
