The Iranian History 1956 AD


Mosaddegh Sent To Exile In Ahmadabad Again

Aug, 4, 1956 AD

Mosaddegh Laughing with Harry Truman while holding replica of an oil well.Near the end of his three years prison term, Mohammad Reza Shah's military junta decided to transfer Dr. Mosaddegh to the Ahmadabad village. Mosaddegh's government was toppled after a USA-UK backed coup code named Operation TP-AJAX.
The reason behind this heneous decision which was not endoresed by any judicial authority was the great fear from Mosaddegh's charismatic figure that changed the history of Iran. Only 16 days to his prison term, Mosaddegh was forced to stay in Ahmadabad until his death in 1967. His body was buried in a small roon inside his house. This village remained under heavy surveillence until the fall of the dictator in 1979.
50 years later, the colonial school of though is behind occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan and puppet regimes in the Middle East. The real cost for the American and British public is going to be very high as history repeats. (Updated: Aug, 12, 2008)

SAVAK soon became a dreadful secret service that got involved in many dark activities. Before foundation of SAVAK, intelligence and information gathering activities were described within the police department as well as a special unit in the army. The military junta headed by General Zahedi insisted on creation of SAVAK as a tool to suppress civil political activities in Iran.
SAVAK had close ties with CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD and it's secret activities included keeping files for famous personalities, even state officials sometimes with false accusations to be able to use against them just in case. This was one of the reasons people hated SAVAK.
After the 1979 revolution, SAVAK was dissolved but rumors indicated that most of the personel were employed in a new organization called SAVAMA. Currently, because of lack of transparency there us no reliable information on such activities inside ministries, universities, and other foundations apart from the fact that these mafia-like dark people are only referred to as civil-suits nowadays.
