The Real World: Tehran

As the drums beat against the backdrop of a U.S. military buildup in the Persian Gulf, war with Iran seems more inevitable than it does likely.  But does Iran pose a real threat to our national security or are they being used as a convenient scapegoat to divert the American people’s attention away from an impending financial collapse here at home? 

War has always been used as a good exit strategy from the economic turmoil our banking masters create for us.   Both world wars were initiated to face down fiscal meltdowns and it appears likely that they are using that same strategy to justify a third.  But don’t expect to hear any mention of that once the shelling begins.  It will be all about Ahmadinejad and the fictitious nuclear weapons program he has stashed away in his basement.  That’s right!  Same lie…different guy.

Truth is always the first casualty of war.  Our kids come next.   With fewer jobs to go around, social unrest becomes more certain especially among our nation’s youth.  And what better way to quell the young and the restless from a potential uprising than to send them off to the front lines?  Of course some will go reluctantly while others will consider it an honor to serve.  Certainly there will be proud parents; they’ll slap a yellow “Support Our Troops” sticker on the back of their truck and break down in tears every time they hear “I’m proud to be an American” at the NASCAR track.  But they will never acknowledge that their son is being used as cannon fodder for the banking cartels or worse yet–  as Henry Kissinger describes them  – “…dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns of foreign policy”.

Americans have been breeding soldiers since day one and as long as there is land to steal, property to seize and people to kill, there will always be a demand for more. But the United States government does not want to wait until your son’s 18th birthday to sell him on a military career- they want to get him young!  And recruitment starts the minute you set the boy down in front of that television set.  Since 9/11 the United States government and the American media have unilaterally orchestrated a massive campaign to win the hearts and minds of the young and prepare them for war!  Graphically violent television programs and movies have made our children indifferent to death and destruction.  Video games, particularly “first person shooter games”, actually teach kids to kill reliably and without hesitation after they condition their minds to make firing a weapon an “automatic response”. 

Our nation has been in a constant state of war since 1991 and many young adults have no memory of a time when we have been at peace.  Add that to all the virtual reality mayhem that’s been force-fed into their minds and it’s no wonder we see the level of aggression and recklessness from today’s youth.  And you don’t have to even have kids of your own to witness a demonstration of this kind of behavior.  Just check out popular youth-centric reality shows like “Jersey Shore” or “the Ruins” to get a glimpse into the lives of the modern young adult: blackout drinking, multiple sex partners, fits of rage and violence.  And it’s not just the men engaged in these things.  The girls can be just as scary.

Now compare them to the young adults who grew up before the war with Iraq, back when one of the first youth-centric reality shows made its debut:

In 1992, MTV launched “The Real World”, the longest running program in MTV history.  Every episode starts off the same with a voice-over running simultaneously with a collage of scenes from that particular season’s show:

“This is the true story… of seven strangers… picked to live in a house…work together and have their lives taped… to find out what happens… when people stop being polite… and start getting real…The Real World.”

This was one of the first “reality” shows I remember seeing that dealt with average, ordinary young adults engaged in average, ordinary affairs that we can all relate to.  It’s sort of a microcosm of contemporary American “pop culture”.  Take a look at the characters from that first season.  Sure they had their spats but, at least for the most part, they treated each other with a lot more respect than what we see today.  These young people seemed more interested in art, careers and relationships than the drug-induced fistfights, date rapes and drunken tirades we see now.  It’s a rather frightening example of just how morally bankrupt we’ve allowed our children to become in such a short period of time.   But don’t worry!  While your kids might not make functional members of society they just might find themselves right at home in the United States Armed Forces.  There they can complete their life-long indoctrination and then be sent off to take out all their pent up rage on the young Iranian population…who are being subjected to their own brand of Western brain-washing.

Those who would believe that Iran is such a great threat to our American way of life and believe them to be at the forefront of a rising Islamic conspiracy to take over the world should take the time to examine the youth of that nation.  After all, once their parents die off they will be the next in line to carry such a thing out.  Wouldn’t it be interesting to follow the daily lives of seven Iranian youths…

 …picked to live in a house…work together and have their lives taped… to find out what happens… when people stop being polite… and start getting real…

What do you think that might look like?  Well, if slurs like “Sand Nigger”, “Camel Jockey” or “Rag head” dominate your vernacular then you may imagine these youths to be engaged in daily rituals of flag desecration, effigy burning and beheadings.  Maybe you envision them to be part of a society of radical jihadists who quote passages from the Qur’an advocating the killing of the “infidels”.  Perhaps you suspect their waking hours are spent polishing their hand grenades and brushing up on the latest ways to carry out suicide bombings on American troops.  If this is your perception, then you are not living in the real world.  Iran, and more particularly its largest city Tehran, has a youth culture much like our own.  They lead secular lives that are often at odds with the ruling regime.  They have parties, wear western clothes, dance to western music and even drink alcohol and use drugs.  The regime itself acknowledges that young Iranians have distanced themselves from their Islamic faith much like the youth here have distanced themselves from their Christian faith.  Like their western counterparts, the Iranian kids are not interested in politics and world domination.  They’re kids! They want simple things: music and art, food and drink, affection and comfort. 

But you may be wondering how something like this could happen in a place that is seen by many as an extremely repressive theocratic dictatorship?  Well, the Iranian government has complained, for years, about the Westernization of their culture.  Some may argue that that is a good thing.  There certainly are beautiful aspects of Western Civilization but it’s not the virtues of liberty and freedom that are being propagated on the Iranian people.  What they are being enticed to embrace are the secular aspects: sexual promiscuity, entertainment, indulgence and vanity.

On September 12, 2002, current, but then former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the U.S. House’s Government Reform Committee and, according to a UPI article of the time titled “Netanyahu: Subvert Iran with Television”:

 “…called upon the United States to effect regime change in both Iraq and Iran, prescribing a military invasion to topple the government in Baghdad and the transmission of ribald television programming via satellite into Persia, where he said the influx of pop culture would prove “subversive” to the conservative Islamic regime.

Citing the hundreds of thousands of satellite television dishes in Iran, Benjamin Netanyahu told the House Government Reform Committee that the United States could incite a revolution against the conservative Iranian clergy through the use of such Fox Broadcasting staples as “Melrose Place” and “Beverly Hills 90210″ — both of which feature beautiful young people in varying states of undress, living, glamorous, materialistic lives and engaging in promiscuous sex”.

“This is pretty subversive stuff,” Netanyahu told the committee. “The kids of Iran would want the nice clothes they see on those shows. They would want the swimming pools and fancy lifestyles.”

And this suggestion did not fall on deaf ears.  During the Bush Administration the US Congress voted $120 million for anti-regime media broadcasts into Iran, and about $75 million funding opposition parties.  According to then Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice:

 “The United States wishes to reach out to the Iranian people and support their desire to realize their own freedom and secure their own democratic and human rights”.

And how has this strategy worked out over the years?  Well apparently it’s working.  In 2006, CBS News did an expose about the recent epidemic of nose jobs that has become popular with the young men and women in Tehran and reported that some young Iranian women are more obsessed with their appearance than their counterparts in the west.  And you thought that the only part of an Iranian woman you can see are her eyes!

 “A Western nose is more beautiful”, says one young woman in Farsi.

The report goes on to say that Newsha Tavakolian, a photographer working on a book about the phenomenon, stated that the nose craze started with satellite TV from the West.

 “Everyone saw how the Western women, they have very small nose and look almost like Barbie, and the Iranian women, they see them and they say, ‘Oh, I want to look like them’.  They want to make their nose small”.

A more recent example of how Western influence has impacted the Iranian culture can be seen during the 2009 Iranian Presidential election when thousands of young adults took to the streets of Tehran to protest the re-election of President Ahmadinejad.  To those who get their world news from the MSM, this appeared to be a grass-roots demonstration of a nationwide sentiment of dissatisfaction and distrust of the Regime and the voting process.  But this was no organic uprising.  Prior to the elections, tens of thousands of tweets began pouring into the popular Internet social site “Twitter”.  They claimed that these “tweets” originated in Iran but were written in English by only a few recently registered users with the same photo profile.  These “tweets” painted an exaggerated picture in support of the protests and stinks of the meddling of billionaire Rothschild stooge George Soros and his “Open Society Foundation”. Using this seemingly humanitarian NGO as a front, Soros and his group regularly outfit and fund opposition parties inside so-called repressive regimes that he wants to destabalize.  These “color revolutions” have sprung up all over the Middle East and Europe and have been successful in fomenting dissent among the populations of Moldova, Greece, Georgia and the Ukraine among others. Soros operative Evgeny Morozov is on the board of the OSF’s “Information Program” that openly uses the internet to instigate democratic movements inside closed societies in order to destabilize governments.  On his personal blog, Morozov admits that he regularly visits targeted nations with the intent of “studying opportunities that information technology and Internet networking present for overthrowing authoritarian regimes”.

But of all the assaults perpetrated against the Iranian people, none is more destructive then the rise in the nation’s drug problem.  Since the deployment of U.S. troops into Afghanistan opium production has increased ten fold.  Iran is the main supply route for product headed to Europe and tons of it ends up on the streets of Tehran on a daily basis.  The Iranian government has accused the U.S. of supporting the drug trade as a way of maintaining a level of  insecurity in order to justify their presence in the region.  Besides that, the same Tribal leaders that helped the U.S. fight the Taliban are the ones who operate the biggest poppy fields.  Allowing them to continue growing is part of their payment.  We also know there to be a significant CIA presence in Afghanistan and there is no reason to doubt that they are engaged in flooding drugs into Iran just like they’ve been known to do over here for decades.  And it’s not just Opium that is finding it’s way on the streets of Tehran.  The very American drug Methamphetamine and the very Israeli drug MDMA (also known as Ecstacy) are also prevalent among the designer drugs finding its way into the hands of the Iranian youth.  And, as you might suspect, this has contributed greatly to the moral collapse of that nation.  With few jobs to turn to, kids are finding nothing better to do than get high; and along with that comes the associative problems of prostitution and violent crime.

So what can we conclude from all this?  Certainly the West has contributed to the almost certain death of Iran without having to drop one bomb.  Patience would eventually see the country collapse under the weight of its own internal struggles.  And even if they continued to exist, can anyone take all this into account and still insist that the dreaded Islamic threat to take over the world is being orchestrated within the borders of Iran?  An often bantered about concept I hear from Islamophobes is that the Muslim population is exploding at a rate that will eclipse all other races and result in the world being delivered into the bondage of “Sharia Law”.  Well, if that’s true, it’s unlikely that such a thing will originate out of Iran, whose collapsing birth rate during the past 20 years is the fastest recorded in any country, ever.

But all of these facts won’t stop the West because as far as they’re concerned, Iran isn’t dying fast enough.  And when the bombs start dropping, maybe the youth of Iran will end their fascination with the West and realize that all their gifts were merely “Trojan Horses”.  And when those kids wake up to that reality, America really will have something to worry about.

  1. It’s about time someone had the guts to tell a realistic truth about Iran. If there is a political problem in the Middle East it is Isreal and America causing it. Just like Iraq, we invaded based upon a lie (WMD). There wasn’t any, but we lost thousands of our men and women for nothing. The “new” excuse is Iran’s assumed nuclear bombs. For shame America. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, only this time I won’t be fooled.
    It should be clear as window glass – ISREAL is the real and only problem in the Middle East!

  2. Outstanding article. I have always wondered about the political social dynamic of that country but I am always so busy on other things. One thing that this article did was enlighten me on that subject, so I appreciate the information. I wish that I could reach out and meet and hang out with some of those youth, maybe go to their parties, and talk with them about what they really think about relations between our two nations. Perhaps one day I will. Thanks again,

    Allan

  3. Agree 100% with Taylor.

    Israel is the problem. They are the true, real terrorist and they possess stockpiles of nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, biological weapons, all hideous illegal weapons of mass destruction. The US Government takes no action against Israel and actually finances their terrorism and vetoes every actions by the UN against Israel.

    Yes folks, the US Government is completely owned and controlled by the zionist Israelis.

    Unfortunately the US public has very little knowledge of this because the main stream media is controlled by the very zionist turds that will continue to brainwash Americans to hate Arabs and Muslims while they continue to suffocate and strangle America to it’s death. The public better wake up, do some serious research and know who your real enemy is before all is lost.

    • Thank you Tony. I hope more Americans are waking up to the fact that zonist jews and their state of israel is the enemy of all decent nations & people.
      Here at home if we speak critically of the jews we’re labeled “anti-semites” and considered ogres of society. (so much for free speech in the supposed land of the free.) How dare we speak ill of the zonist jews. Not all jews are bad especially the orthodox jew. They’re not political.
      God Bless.

  4. GREAT article! I agree completely. As a Vietnam era Vet, I can also agree drugs has a great deal with wars these days (including “The War on Drugs” within the US)… and it is all geared not in fighting drugs but in promoting and dealing in them. I knew of many un-marked uniformed leaders who had US military soldiers under their command. These leaders were working on drug related operations as one of a number of factions within the CIA.
    These ongoing US invasions of sovereign nations labeled as War is the same today.

    ALSO, the use of depleted uranium shelling is the greatest abomination of all. It amounts to nuclear warfare by the US. (“Get Saddam for his WMD,” what a joke/an-outright-lie!) This dust gets into the lungs of everyone—US soldiers included; and it is carried by the Earth’s weather engine worldwide. So, don’t think you are safe here at home watching TV!

  5. Excellent expose. Thank you very much.

    Blair’s performance recently via the Chilcott enquiry in the UK was certainly a (c)overt attempt at neuro-linguistic programming.

    Blair alluded to the ‘threat’ Iran poses to the world no less than 50 times during his performance.

    The frustration is, regardless of how many lies told; and how many times we the public are circumvented from the palpable aspirations of those in power; many in the UK and US still, somehow, cannot see that all is not well in Disneyland.

    The real threat to the well being of both the US and UK appears to lie firmly within our own Establishments.

  6. It is not so much that “Truth is the first casualty of war”; as that war is the ultimate consequence of the denial, contradiction and perversion of Truth.

    Thus, those mostly responsible for this particular war will be those who have told the first lies; namely, the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious ‘authorities’.

  7. Great points. It’s amazing to consider that the fate of potentially billions of individuals rests in the hands of one current communist state, and one former communist state.

    The question is: does Russia and/or China want Iran to be weakened further to improve their respective hands at the bargaining table? If yes, they do so with the risk of the current anti-western regime being replaced with a pro-western one. If no, then the same states should have the political will and might to deter yet another war, via threats of economic and asymmetrical warfare. Let us pray it’s “no.”

    GO RUSSIA!

  8. Agree with most of your points, barr 1. IRAN is not dying – and that party-obsessed, looks obsessed you is confined to affluent north Tehranis. North Tehran is 4 million, there is another 66 million Iranians. And amongst those are millions of youth who are committed muslims, the sons and daughters, nephews and neices of the million plus, who died, got maimed or chemically effected defending Iran aginst the West-back 8 year war. These people are Ahmadinejad’s people. In fact, Ahmadinejad’s youth vote got him over the line; everyone in Iran knows this. They do not want a McDemocracy of McFreedom.

  9. The Jewish people(converted khazars,criminals,FAKE JEWS FROM THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN,REVELATION 2:9,3:9) as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

    In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

    — Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, ‘La Revue de Paris’, p.574, June 1, 1928

  10. Washington’s war against Muslim countries are not for the interest of Americans but for the sake of Israel via powerful Jewish Lobbys.

    Michael Schneider, secretary general of World Jewish Congress (WJC) in a statement published on WJC’s website on January 5, 2010, said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Israel) has requested that Jewish “working groups should examine different ways to meet Iranian incursion into Latin America and its rising influence on that Continent – and make recommendations how to combat that danger”.

    On December 1, 2009 – Gilad Atzmon, an Israel-born British Jewish citizen – wrote an article, titled Hasbara Author vs Iran\’s Bomb, in which he exposed Jewish Chronicle’s (the mouthpiece of British Jewish Lobby) columinst David Aaronovitch for repeating the same lies against Tehran which he voiced against Saddam Hussein. The Jewish Chronicle contacted several webmasters in an attempt to bully them into taking down Gilad’s article.

  11. I have never meet a Persian, Arab, OR practioner of Islam, that I have ever disliked, feared, or found to be threatening.

    I have found, met, and do fear many Zionist, Zionist supporters, Jews, Israeli sympathizers.

    Funny how The world tells me who is the enemy and my heart, brain, and soul tell me the only enemies I have are those who fear my free thinking.

  12. Thank you for an excellent article, very much needed to balance the idiotic rants of the Zionazis and their USSA [not a typo] poodle, the Obamamama, who is busy creating the first fascist nanny state. Google or cluuz ‘joseph e fasciani’ to get a small idea of what I’ve Internet published since 2003.

    Even if there is a world-wide Greater Depression taking place, it will not slow the imperial ambitions of the elites. I’m afraid that we are all in for a long and nasty ride on the Capitalist Roller Coaster from Hell.

  13. I wanted to agree with you, but then you started talking about how the government is giving us first-person-shooter games. And here I thought that we, as humans, merely love to play games, and therefore, we make games for ourselves to play? I live and work with those who make such games. We do not condone war, but we LOVE playing games- even the violent and sexy kind. Dionysos is as much a part of us in that regard as anything.

    Also, reality shows are scripted. I know those people too.

    I can’t take you seriously.

  14. nice article, good blog…success to u… :)

  15. Seems Obama is no different to Bush… another war monger in power in America??

  16. Excellent article! I myself have played video games for years and I can see how some of these games can be used for social-engineering (desensitizing youth to commit violent acts, engage in degrading behaviors).

  17. Hey man, good article.

  18. The only MSM news show I watch is Olbermann’s Countdown bc he makes me laugh..but when he talks about 9-11 I have to change the channel to TCM or something..Why? I’m convinced that 9-11 was a Mossad false-flag terror op. I recommend going to http://www.Rediscover911.com or http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk.com ( go fm google ) go to left margin and click on sept.11, read through archived articles. Also Victor thorn’s book 9-11 Evil, Israel’s Central Role in the 9-11 terror attack is very good..Dov Zakheim, Michael S. Goff, Dominik Otto Suter. It seems we’ve been waterboarding the wrong people. I’m against torture but if we are going to torture…

  19. I can see “my comment is awaiting moderation”. Hopefully not fm some Judas-goat gatekeeper. Just look into it..Dov Zakheim and his filching ( misplacing) of $2.3 trillion ( with a “t” ) at the Pentagon to his sending 32 Boeings to Fla for retrofitting to his heading of Systems Planning Corp. which specializes in remote control tech. Goff @ P-Tech..The 2nd plane went into the S. Tower at 9:03, WTC6 explodes at 9:04 sending dust and smoke 550′ into the air, meanwhile D. Suter’s Israeli’s with demolition experience are driving around NYC in white vans that triggered responses fm bomb-sniffing dogs..Silverstein allowed a power-down the weekend b4..And on and on..9-11 was a Mossad false-flag terror op.

  20. I take my hat off to Israel. They have honed propaganda to a fine art. The US is a defacto proxy for Israel. American arms, money and manpower will be used to fight Israels war through coersion and manipulation of the media. The American public are unwittingly complicit, as their Superbowl IQ is much higher than their civics and foreign policy IQ.
    Even though Israel has never declared itself as a nuclear power it has possessed nukes for many years. Supporting a nuclear power financially is a violation of US law. However since Israel has never declared it as such, and since congress, the executive and the senate have been bought and paid for, excessive financial aid to Israel is ok.
    This will most likely be a war with unanticipated consequences for America. I feels sorry for the misguided morons who in a brain fog send off their youth to Iran for the benefit of corporate America and Israel.

    Israeli or Jewish War on Islamic Iran

    http://rehmat1.wordpress.com/2010/02/05/israeli-or-jewish-war-on-islamic-iran/

  22. I´m from Iran and I couldn´t agree more with what you say. This is a continuation of what was happening in Iran before the revolution, and in a way the continuation of what Islam did to Iranian culture. The same class of sell-out people that became the hippies of Iran back in the 70s, have produced the kids you see that don´t follow neither Iranian culture or Islamic culture. this current green movement that wants western corporate democracy is fueled by the “iranins” who don´t have the guts to go back to their own country, but shout “free iran” from the comforts of their living room in Europe, US, or Canada. most of them are the kids whose parents ran from iran during the revolution or immigrated or escaped during and after the war.
    As for I, eventhough i don´t support the islamic totalitarin regime of iran, I refuse to join the green bandwagon. the current green movement has 2 main directions, they want western style corporate democracy (what else could these rich people want), or they just want the current regime removed without caring what replaces it (obviously this is going to easily be hijacked by CIA & Mossad).
    I´m currently travelling through Peru and you can see the exact method here as well.
    The old culture of this country was destroyed by the jesuit conquistadors, and the remaining christian culture is being destroyed by the western media. you see marry and jesus on cross everywhere along side western style advertisments, sex, and booz. booz is EVERYWHERE.

    This method of social engineering and erosion of culture is a transparent method that the Illuminati(for lack of a better term) have been using for centuries.
    the Pike letter to Mazzzini comes to mind: “…we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

    cultures have always clashed, but through natural causes like wars brought by drought and lack of resources, or other. these people want to take that in their own hands, to artificially control even the clash of cultures, to produce the outcome that they want.

  23. If I lived in Tehran I would be doing all I could to get my family out and live in country where we can make a living and not have to suffer the appalling economic sanctions imposed upon our nation. They are a deliberate attempt to force regime change from within by the west. And it isn’t working. Persians are a strong people. Iran is the only Muslim country in the world whose leader is not a western puppet! – That is why the West USA (at the behest of Israel) wants to subjegate Iran and its people to follow their rules of secular ideologies both socially and economically. This has been well documented in both the above comments and in other blogs – what is not mentioned is how important it is that the Iranian clergy retain power – These are amongst the most pious and knowledgable scholars in the Isalmic world and actually are holding up the reality of Islam in the face of the degenerate wahabbist influence that pervades everywhere. This has full western support because it divides the Muslim ummah. Wahabbism and its fundamental dogma demeans shariah in the ignorance of its application as implimented in both Arabia and the sub continent. Shariah cannot be changed . It is as sound and relevant to today as it was 1500 years ago – what has to be changed is the fiq – (application) which hasnt been updated in 800 years and makes Islam look like the relic of medievalism as is portrayed by the western media. Neither the wahabbis nor the sub continant muslims want to change the fiq. Imagine if under the Westminster System in a court of law you are charged with a driving accident which caused the death of a pedestrian and the Judge based his punishment on a ruling made by John of Gaunt in 1150 when a cart of hay toppled over in a town square and squashed the ironmonger. This would be absurd and would make the western judicial system look as antiquated as shariah does today. The Iranian clergy are updating the fiq for our contemporary Islamic world. This is the greatest fear of the West. That Islam might be seen to be relevant and a serious threat to the western hegemony of law. Remember that the Westminster system is half roman law and half common law — Common Law comes from Shariah. Particularly Imam Shafi to whose madhab Saladin was an adherent – and it is where the crusaders took their idea for the magna carta and property rights. If any of the great Imams of Islamic jurisprudence were alive today their rulings would be quite different than they were 1000 years ago. While shariah cannot change – our application of it must. Support Iran. It is the duty of the Muslim Ummah!!!

  24. American heroes will go out again and butcher woman and children.

    I bet you!

  25. [...] is what the people of Afghanistan fear: that their 3000-year-old culture will be corrupted by western secularism.  That’s why they hate us, and that’s why they fight so hard. Published [...]

  26. Very good article!

    BTW, there is no such thing as “Western” culture – it is called White culture – and whites have imposed their sick values on all peoples of the earth for hundreds of years!

    Read the “Anglo Saxon Mission”… http://projectcamelot.org/lang/en/anglo_saxon_mission_interview_transcript_en.html

  27. Superb article. When I was a senior in high school and a freshman in college in the late 70s I knew some Iranian students whom were even at that time somewhat Westernized in their dress and tastes. Obviously the reason for the attempt to subvert Iran and/or militarily bullying it is multi-faceted, including Iran’s strategic position in the region as well as perhaps Iran’s refusal to be sucked into the international bankers’ web of debt and depravity. But since the U.S. is controlled by Kike Bolsheviks and the kikes in Israel wish to see the destruction of Iran, in all likelihood there is going to be something horrible transpiring over there in the not-too-distant future!
