The Shia clergy were behind the Shah? Yeah, Right! Which is why the most senior Ayatollah Khomeni led the revolt against the Shah.

I just watched a 22 minute video in which an former Iranian woman spoke about the changes that occurred when the Shah was exiled. Her plans included medical school, which were blocked when the Shah was driven from power. If I can find it again, I will post it. She speaks at length on the stoning of women for acting like they did when the Shah was in charge.

You claim the revolution was about economic issues, well today's paper has the Iranian leadership begging for help with updating Iranian oil fields.

Does the name Doctor Sarlock mean anything to you?
