An Alternative View of Iran

Once I was in Iran the Shah ruled and his informers were everywhere.
Then came the revolution, much blood, some of it innocent, into
the streets. USA had kept the Shah in power and crushed democratic
opposition when Mossadegh tried to tame the international oil industry,
he was dumped and the dreadful Shah family returned to power.
As a result of this radical Mullahs took power and we have to live with our
mistake. Yet Iran is more democratic than Israel, they tolerate the Jewish
community there and let them live in peace. Iran today lives under
the shadow the threat of Israel´s nuclear menace, Israel will never accept
any powers those are as equal to hers. It is odd, is it not the sitting Israel
government is using the language of Nazi Germany before it
invaded Poland. I t strikes me that unless we tame Israel and her excesses
she will, deluded as she is, destroy the world as we know it. Yet stupid as
we are we will be on the wrong side of this massacre.
