President Carter Sharing Toast with the Shah or Iran Before Stabbing Him in the Back

The harder the Iranian regime is squeezed, by economic sanctions and internal protests, the more belligerent their threats become towards Israel, the United States and Saudi Arabia. The mullahs 40-year run as absolute rulers of Iran has gone through many permutations; from firmly establishing their rule and fighting a costly war with Iraq in the 1980s to witnessing a massive change in the Middle East and world power dynamic in the wake of 9/11; from funneling billions into radical Islamic organizations around the world to making serious inroads into Iraq after the U.S. pullout by President Obama; from near bankruptcy and total collapse to new life after the recent "Nuclear Arms Deal" with Europe and the United States pumped billions back into their coffers and lifted economic sanctions.

With that deal now in ruins and severe economic sanctions taking a severe toll, the regime is again in crisis and it shows as the mullahs lash out with threats in every direction.  

In the about to be released book, First Comes the Mosque, George H. Hassanzadeh goes through the events leading to mullahs taking power in 1979, engineered by President Carter. The section chronicles the deceptions at the core of Carter's direct dealings with Shah of Iran and his top advisers.  

Here is the section, The Farmer & The Statesman, from First Comes the Mosque:  

Perhaps no one outside of Iran has more insights into Iran's affairs than the late Sir Eldon Griffiths. In his book, Turbulent Iran, Sir Eldon wrote about US President Carter's unexpected visit to Tehran shortly before the Islamic revolution. "Two days after Christmas 1977, one of the 'flying command post' aircraft at the American air base at Mildenhall in my constituency took off on a special mission on behalf of POTUS; the secret service acronym used to identify the president of the United States Jimmy Carter was crossing the Atlantic."

Sir Eldon continues, "That night the president appeared on the Shah's arm at a state dinner in the Niavaran Palace. He danced with Farah Diba while Rosalynn Carter waltzed with the Shah. The text of the speech that Jimmy Carter's advisors had prepared for him was innocuous, even boring, but the president jazzed it up. Expressions of surprise appeared on the faces of his American officials as he said,

No other country is closer to America in the matter of our military security and there is no other leader to whom I feel deeper gratitude or greater personal affection than I do to your Imperial Majesty. Iran owes its existence as an island of peace and stability in one of the world's most troubled regions, to Your Majesty's abilities as head of state and to the respect and admiration accorded to you by your people.

 In his address, President Carter also said,

"That the United States admired the efforts being made by Iran and her sovereign, to strengthen democracy and make human rights respected."

President Jimmy Carter was not alone in his false admiration, praising the Shah and his vision while betraying him at his time of need; he had the British, the oil companies, and some Europeans as well. Carter was persuaded that the Shah was not fit to rule Iran.

President Carter's decision to uproot the Persian Empire by dethroning its last sovereign king and handing the helm to the cunning Arabs "skulking under the clerical robe," changed the course of history with a volley of devastating impacts on humanity. What's more, the world is paying for Carter's unspeakable blunder and shall continue to for centuries to come.

When President Carter on a news conference stated, "I believe the people of Iran and the government will continue to be our friends," Iranians throughout the world begin to identify the real force behind the destruction of the Persian Empire. They soon learned that the Carter administration's clear-headed planning and malevolent premeditation organized the overthrow of the Shah of Iran. They learned that the Carter administration along with their confederates the British were involved every step of the way.

In his book Hostage to Khomeini, Robert Dreyfuss writes, "From the propaganda preparations to the supply of arms and ammunition, from behind-the-scenes deals with traitors to Shah's military to the final ultimatum to the beaten leader in January 1979 to leave Iran. Perhaps no other chapter in American history is so replete with treachery to the ideals upon which the nation was founded." Robert Dreyfuss continues, "As President Carter in January 1978 was embracing the Shah and praising Iran as an 'island of stability' in the turbulent Middle East, his aides were already working to hurl this ally of the United States into the tumult of revolution."

In an interview by Journalist Ali Mirfetros, Amir Arslan Afshar, Iran's "Chief of Protocol" during the last days of the Shah says, "Shah's exit from Iran was a plot by the American President Jimmy Carter." On January 16, 1979, a shocked and disbelieving nation read newspaper headlines: "Shah is Gone."

Most political analysis, the commentators, and the general public believed that the Shah's exit from Iran was caused wholly by Khomeini and his revolutionary supporters' push. However, the people nearest to the Shah, such as Afshar, who accompanied the Shah out of Iran, observed another source having an active hand. For years, the Europeans and the United States secretly resented the Shah's passion for independence and self-sufficiency; adding to that was the Shah's pride and imposing ambitions for the future of his nation.

Taking into account that President Carter assured the Shah that it would be advantageous if the Shah visit him in the United States for two or three months while they put together a plan for his return, not for a moment did any doubt entered the Shah's mind that his trusted friend Jimmy Carter had come to his aid. His close associates, including Afshar, tried to persuade him to stay and fight; however, the Shah strongly believed in the capability of the US president and "that he will return in two or three months. 'It was done once before,' Shah whispered."             

Afshar continues the story, "Days before our departure, I prepared a speech for the Shah to address the nation. The Shah opposed that, asserting that we will be back in two or three months, no need to address the nation. I must say, a few days before our departure, Lord George-Brown (1914-1985), who served as British Deputy Leader of the Labour Party (1960 to 1970), accompanied by an Iranian-British businessman, Lord David Alliance (born Davoud Alliance in 1932, Kashan, Iran), visited the Shah. The next day, I had a phone call from Lord Brown requesting to meet with them at the Hilton Hotel. After I received permission from the Shah, I met with them.

Lord Brown opened the conversation saying, 'I suggested to his Majesty since his travel abroad is not more than two or three months, and knowing that his Majesty trusts you and so do we, that all communications to Prime-Minister Shahpour Bakhtiar to go through you (Arsalan-Afshar), and he has accepted the suggestion.' On this occasion, I personally heard the 'two-or three-months' proposal from the British Lord Brown.

The Shah, however, suspected that Ambassador Sullivan (William H. Sullivan, 1922-2013), was not straight forward in his conduct and may not reports the events as they happen to the White House. Sullivan handed the Shah the itinerary and briefed him that his plane would land at Andrews Airport Base near Washington, D C, and from there with a helicopter to Shah's friend, Walter Annenberg's estate."


The Shah's 'Chief of Protocol' Amir Arsalan Afshar continued, "While I was busy preparing the trip and selecting suitable gifts for the hosts, His Majesty summoned me. He said 'President Carter had just called me and asked as a favor, on my way to the USA, meet President Anwar Sadat and former US President Gerald Ford at Aswan Egypt, for a couple of days to review the Camp David Accords.  It is noteworthy to mention that His Majesty the Shah had an important role in the peace accord between Egypt and Israel," said Afshar.

"Off the record," said Afshar, "President Sadat made several unofficial trips to Tehran and on each occasion, I would meet him at the airport and drive him to Princess Ashraf Pahlavi's 'Sa'dabad' palace where Anwar would meet the Shah and the two men would confer on the international affairs. I was in on one conversation where the Shah advised Sad at to make peace with Israel. I believe it is best for the Egypt to have peace with Israel because it is the Egyptian people who would suffer the most. What's more, Egypt cannot count on Arab nations for help; they are busy with empty threats and useless rhetoric.

On couple of occasions, I heard President Anwar Sadat show his profound appreciation for the Shah's help in the peace accord and for his generous donation of 'one billion seven hundred million dollars' to help clean Suez Canal from much wreckage that remained since the 1967 'Six-Day War.' The canal was reopened by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1975, where at his side stood the Iranian Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, delegated to represent his father, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran.

"On January 16, 1979, the Shah and the Royal Family left Tehran for Aswan, Egypt. After three days of talk, the Shah told me, 'Our talks have ended and President Sadat has a formal state visit to Sudan. Get in touch with American Ambassador in Cairo and ask what day, what time, we will be arriving in the United States.' I contacted the American Ambassador and he told me that he will get in touch with Washington.  The ambassador called me the next day and said,

'Unfortunately, the State Department does not believe that the Shah's trip to the United States is possible at this time, and there is no further information.'

"I immediately felt that one of the world's 'Utmost Deceptions' has just occurred. That the President of the United States has lied and deceived the Shah all along. Later, it turned out that the collusion on the fate of the Shah, his family, and his nation was decided way in advance of the 'Guadeloupe Conference,' which was between the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and West Germany, in the Guadeloupe Islands on January 4, 1979, and that meeting was confirmation and the formality to sign and seal the fate of the Shah and his nation agreement.

"It has been said that the President Carter calmly volunteered to get his friend the Shah out of his country and see that he will die-out. My heart sank into my throat when I next met the Shah. I repeated what the American Ambassador told me. While His Majesty became agitated and looked puzzled, being a King and statesman, he did not lose his composure. He faced me and said, 'They did the same with my father. My father was assured that he will be expelled to India, as he wished to be near his beloved nation, but, the British did not allow him to go ashore on the port of Madras (Chennai) and took him straight to Mauritius and to Johannesburg, South Africa. I have made a mistake trusting United States and her Allies."

Most Iranians agree, that the time, dates, and events suggest that Iran's 'Chief of Protocol' Amir Arsalan Afshar's account is accurate, and is precisely what happened.  

Both kings, with unconditional patriotism, both with unyielding drive to modernize and make their countries self-sufficient. Both were tricked by the West, forced into exile, and both died in a foreign land. And their crimes: being patriots, being decent, and most of all, having faith in humanity, thus being an easy target for deception and betrayal. On March 20, 1980, President Carter sent his Chief of Staff, Hamilton Jordan, to Panama to prevent the ailing Shah's departure to Egypt. The Shah detected the plot, where Carter was to use him as an exchange for American hostages. The plot failed.

In a news conference on Contadora before leaving, the statesman, the Shah, declared: "Our thanks to General Torrijos and President Aristides Royo. We will always remember Panama with gratitude." The little-known peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia, was angry for the failure of the exchange; thus, the failure of getting re-elected. 

Hassan Rahnavardi declared, "It is interesting that [these same] mullahs seek audience with the Royal family to express their loyalty to their nation and convey the sentiments of 'spiritual institution' as loyal and proud Iranians while at the same time, plot against it. As always they begged for more endowments [from the government]."

Two of the least informed US democrat presidents, President Jimmy Carter and President Barack Obama, have failed the American people and all God's creatures.

It is ironic that, through a flawed policy in the Middle East, Jimmy Carter, a Democrat president, helped topple the legitimate government of the Shah of Iran, and we all know the result. AND, it was Ronald Reagan a Republican president, who inherited the result of that chaotic flawed policy.

"… I did criticize the President [Carter] because of our undercutting of what was a stalwart, the Shah of Iran. And I am not at all convinced that he was that far out of line with his people or that they wanted that to happen. The Shah had done our bidding and carried our load in the Middle East for quite some time. And I did think that it was a blot on our record that we let him down. Have things gotten better? The Shah, whatever he might have done, was building low cost housing, had taken land from the Mullahs and was distributing it to the peasants so they could be landowners—things of that kind. But we turned it over to a maniacal fanatic who has slaughtered thousands and thousands of people, calling in executions…"1

"When the Shah found himself in trouble, we quite literally stabbed him in the back—we betrayed the Shah...It was the worst policy decision ever." – Alexander Haig, Secretary of State under President Ronald Reagan.

Again, in 2015, another horribly uninformed Democratic administration caved in to intimidation and blackmail and rewarded the same terrorists' Arab clerics with billions of dollars and other help to continue their revolutionary push on America and terrorize the world. Again, a Republican president, Donald Trump, inherited the task of cleaning up the mess. 

Headline: Pompeo press repudiates Obama's Middle East policy, aims at Iran.

Cairo US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a scathing rebuke of the Mideast policies of President Barack Obama's administration Thursday, accusing the former president of "misguided" and "wishful" thinking that diminished America's rule in the region, harmed its longtime friends and emboldened its main foe: Iran.

In a speech to the American University in Cairo, Pompeo unloaded on President Donald Trump's predecessor, saying he was naïve and timid when confronted with challenges posed by revolts that convulsed the Middle East, including Egypt, beginning in 2011. Pompeo laid the blame notably on a vision outlined by Obama in a speech he gave in Cairo in 2009 in which he spoke of "a new beginning" for US relations with countries in the Arab and Muslim world.

"Remember: It was here, here in this very city, another American stood before you," Pompeo told an invited audience of Egyptian officials, foreign diplomats and students. "He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from ideology. He told you 911 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed 'a new beginning.' The results of these misjudgments have been dire.

"In falsely seeing ourselves as a force for what ails the Middle East, we were timid about asserting ourselves when the times and our partners demanded it."2

For years the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who controls the nation's armed forces, has frequently said, "United States is a weak and corrupt nation and no longer controls its own people, she should shut her darn mouth about our people."

About George Hassanzadeh:

George Hassan was raised as a Shia Muslim and is in the process of releasing a series of books which provides dependable details of the operation of the Arab Shiite system of mind controlling. The setting begins with the Persian Empire of "Iran" as a base of operations for achieving the ultimate goal of Arab hegemony (supremacy) through a line of attack of Assault Upon the World, particularly The War against the West, and the antagonizes are the tyrant Arab religious leaders. He aims to help the people of the free world to understand the threat posed by the Arabs, the Arab Islam, and its future ambitious for the world.   

These publications provide the opportunity to disprove some of the imaginary fiction presented mainly by Iran's Arab Shiite clergy who set themselves up as the supreme leaders of the Islamic world, aiming to make the past come alive with an eye firmly set on present-day concern. The book's rigorous tone and its pragmatic style likely to strike a chord with many Shiite ayatollahs that have benefited from a countless inconsistent and nonsensical accounts they present as facts. The need for fast and accurate information in today's turbulent world is vital.
