Martin Scorsese and the Shah of Iran

The Last Shah of Iran was Mohammad Rezā Shāh Pahlavī.   He ruled Iran from 1941 until his overthrow by the Iranian Revolution on 11 February 1979. He was the second and last monarch of the House of Pahlavi of the Iranian monarchy.  It is well-known that his oppressive and corrupt rule was backed financially by Anglo-American power, which had been profiting from Persian oil resources for decades.  

But the story starts in 1951, when under the leadership of the democratically elected nationalist movement of Dr. Mohammed Mosaddeq, the Iranian parliament unanimously voted to nationalize the oil industry – thus shutting out the immensely profitable Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC), which was a pillar of Britain’s economy and provided it political clout in the region.

This led to American and British policy makers to hatch their nefarious plans to take back control of the oil profits.  The 1953 Iranian coup d’état was the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iran Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the intelligence agencies of the United Kingdom and the United States under the name TPAJAX Project.  The coup saw the transition of Mohammad-Rezā Shāh Pahlavi from a constitutional monarch to an authoritarian one who relied heavily on United States support and held on to power until his own overthrow in February 1979.

What is interesting is that the British government invited CIA agent Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. to London to propose collaboration on a secret plan, code-named “Operation Ajax”, to force Mosaddegh from office.  As we now know he was the son of Hitler/Disney.  According to Roosevelt, he slipped across the border under his CIA cover as “James Lockridge” on June 19, 1953. He was put up in the capital, Tehran, in a place rented by British intelligence.  Under Roosevelt’s direction, the CIA and British intelligence funded and led a campaign of black propaganda and bribery.  The coup faltered initially and the Shah fled Iran. After a brief exile in Italy, however, the Shah was brought back again, this time through a second coup which was successful.  

Now, all of this seems very sinister and underhanded and unbecoming for the ideals of American democracy and justice.  And so, as the details of these events eventually came to light, these criminals resorted to further propaganda and blamed everything on the Communists!  Twenty-six years later, Kermit Roosevelt took the unusual step of writing a book about how he and the CIA carried out the operation. He called his book “Countercoup” to press home the idea that the CIA coup was staged only to prevent a takeover of power by the Iranian Communist Party (Tudeh) closely backed by the Soviet Union. He also may have meant to imply that the exile of the Shah constituted the initial coup, and that he was merely restoring the rightful leader to power.  

This is a total lie.  Because that leader was actually Martin Scorsese’s father!

As indeed we knew that the Shah of Iran was a puppet leader for Western powers, he was also merely an actor playing a role.  The father of the famous Academy Award-winning film director, Martin Scorsese.  His name was Luciano Charles Scorsese, whose Wikipedia page is incredibly sparse and shows that he was uncredited in some films he appeared in!

So then, why did the Iranian Revolution occur?  Why was there a rapid growth of opposition to the Shah?  It was all a Hollywood script.  Historians know that the Iranian Revolution and the subsequent overthrow of the Shah of Iran was peculiarly unusual.  It lacked many of the customary causes of revolution (defeat at war, a financial crisis, peasant rebellion, or disgruntled military), produced profound change at great speed, was massively popular, and replaced a westernising monarchy with a theocracy.  We can confidently speculate with great certainty that the reason for the unusual nature of the revolution was due to the fact that the Shah was an actor and that it was a fraudulent media event, designed to replace one corrupt regime with another.  German historian, William Engdahl explains the reasons for the fake revolution:

“In November 1978, President Carter named the Bilderberg group’s George Ball, another member of the Trilateral Commission, to head a special White House Iran task force under the National Security Council’s Brzezinski. Ball recommended that Washington drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the fundamentalistic Islamic opposition of Ayatollah Khomeini. Robert Bowie from the CIA was one of the lead ‘case officers’ in the new CIA-led coup against the man their covert actions had placed into power 25 years earlier.

Their scheme was based on a detailed study of the phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalism, as presented by British Islamic expert, Dr. Bernard Lewis, then on assignment at Princeton University in the United States. Lewis’s scheme, which was unveiled at the May 1979 Bilderberg meeting in Austria, endorsed the radical Muslim Brotherhood movement behind Khomeini, in order to promote balkanization of the entire Muslim Near East along tribal and religious lines. Lewis argued that the West should encourage autonomous groups such as the Kurds, Armenians, Lebanese Maronites, Ethiopian Copts, Azerbaijani Turks, and so forth. The chaos would spread in what he termed an ‘Arc of Crisis,’ which would spill over into Muslim regions of the Soviet Union.

The coup against the Shah, like that against Mossadegh in 1953, was run by British and American intelligence, with the bombastic American, Brzezinski, taking public ‘credit’ for getting rid of the ‘corrupt’ Shah, while the British characteristically remained safely in the background.

During 1978, negotiations were under way between the Shah’s government and British Petroleum for renewal of the 25-year old extraction agreement. By October 1978, the talks had collapsed over a British ‘offer’ which demanded exclusive rights to Iran’s future oil output, while refusing to guarantee purchase of the oil. With their dependence on British-controlled export apparently at an end, Iranappeared on the verge of independence in its oil sales policy for the first time since 1953, with eager prospective buyers in Germany, France, Japan and elsewhere.”

And that is the key point:  Iranian independence on its oil sales.  This is what the crime families feared from the beginning and continue to fear and battle against up to this very day, employing actors to maintain and further their agenda.  The criminals basically cut off oil production and this directly threatened the welfare of Iranians, and with the BBC heavily favouring the propaganda of Ayatolla Khomeini, the theocracy option appeared to be the only option available.  All a big lie.  And the warmongers had their Middle East unrest they so blatantly desire.

  1. He put too many onions in the sauce but he used three types of meat PORK/VEAL/SAUSAGE. THAT'S what makes the flavor. And I loved his momma as JOE PESCI'S innocent Italian mother in GOODFELLAS. boy can she cook. I thought I saw GRAVY STAINS on the PEACOCK THRONE…

Now as an ITALO-AMERICAN I can say with much pride ''THE GRAVY IS EVERYTHING'' seriously this is very believe able considering all of the SKULLDUGGERY the US/UK/NATO has been involved with in IRAN/PERSIA/IRAQ/THE GULF. there's gold in them thar oil wells. And our meddling in Iran has cost us dearly.
