History of Persia and Iran

Imperial Iran

In December 1946 Imperial Iranian forces led by supreme commander Mohammad Rezâ Pahlavi marched into Tabriz and deposed the Soviet puppet state called APG (Azerbaijan People’s Government) led by separatist traitor Ja’far Piševari. This event finally ended the Iran Crisis of 1946.

Afsharid Persian Empire

Nâder Šâh Afšâr was an enlightener and revolutionary of his time. Born in a time dominated by civil unrest, superstition & apathy caused by the incapable Safavid rulers of Persia. * He was the Persian Emperor from 1736 to 1747. He founded the Afšârid dynasty and moved the capital to Mašhad. He is the most famous Persian emperor who ruled Persia after the Arab invasion in the mid-7th century. He led his wars against the Afghans, the Ottomans, the Uzbeks, against Russia, against Turkestan and India. Nâder Šâh Afšâr was the last conqueror from the Orient and the Napoleon of Persia, with the difference to Napoleon, that he had not lost a single war.

Territorial losses of Iran: From 1514-1971

Edit: Kurdistan was the last time lost to the Ottoman in 1750 NOT 1514. And the southern shores of the Persian Gulf were lost in 1750 as well, expect Bahrain (Mišmâhig) Island.

The Persian Reconquista

By 654 #Islamic invasion reached and then took over most of #Persia – Nevertheless the region never ‘just accepted Arabo-Muslim rule’ – local resistance against the opressive Caliphate continued for almost 2 centuries. By 861 AD these revolts finally resulted in a Persian victory and the reconquest of large parts of Greater #Iran from the Arabs under the leadership of the local warlord Râdmân pur Mâhak.

Zand Dynasty of Persia

After the death of Nâder Šâh, the Persian empire broke up once again and this time following provinces separated from Iran and declared independence: Afqânestân; Mâzandarân,Âzarbâyjân, Ârân & Širvân, Armenia and Georgia. Isfahan was divided into 2 parts, one of which was ruled by Ali Mardân Xân, chieftain of aBaxtiyâri tribe, and the other part by Karim Xân, another chieftain of the Baxtiyâri tribes. The two fought each other and Karim Xân eventually gained the upper hand thus ruled Iran from 1750to 1794. * – Karim Xân Zand [Founder of the Zand dynasty], thought exactly the same way about the Shiite mullahs, as Nâder Šâh did. He ordered all schools which were reopened by the mullahs after the death of Nâder Šâh for the sole purpose of mullah production to be closed. He also Rescinded the decrees, by which the the local governors had to pay salaries to the mullahs. Then he ordered the persecution of the Shiite mullahs, who had caused anarchy throughout the country after the death of Nâder, and even beheaded some of them. This was because these parasites started calling themselves the rightful heirs of the Safavid dynasty and claimed control over Iran for themselves. – Despite the efforts of Nâder Šâh and Karim Xân Zand, Iran could not really be freed from the cancer called Mullah or Âxund. And the disastrous Shiite dynasty (Safavids) had left its mark forever, until today, on the holy body of Iran.


Are the Turkic speakers in Iran Turks or Turkified Persians? ⚠️Here is the Answer⚠️: —————- The Turkish speakers among the Iranian population who were spread through every region of Iran were NOT🚫 Persians who were forced to abandon their original language and forgot it and learned Turkish. No one spoke Turkish as a result of being vanquished by the Turkish conquerors over their lands, as was the opinion spread throughout Iran; the Turkish speakers are nothing but the descendants of the Turks who had migrated in ancient times from Turkestan in search of safety and pasture and became conquerors of Iran and spread throughout it and settled here and there in tracts of land and mingled with the population over the course of time and intermarried with them and followed them in their customs and clothing and religion, although they have preserved their Turkish language and their descendants still speak it (although there are some of these Turks who have assimilated into the indigenous population and have forgotten their languages as well). —————- ☢Pan-Turkism☢: When Turkey’s propaganda intensified in the beginning of WW1 and the Ottoman political perspective turned from pan-Islam to pan-Turkism, the Turks of Iran, and particularly the people of Azerbaijan, could not be left out, and they spread the propagandists and published articles in their newspapers appealing to the Turks of Iran and proving that they were Turks just like them. And then came the Caucasians, who tugged at their heartstrings, appealing to them and demonstrating that they should form their own independent state called the Republic of Azerbaijan, even though there was no relationship between their lands and Azerbaijan except their being neighbors. They did not suspect that the people of Azerbaijan were loyal to Iran & Iranian Nationalists rather than ethnic Nationalist. They would not hesitate to separate from Iran and unit with their ‘Turkic brothers’ in Baku just because of their ‘common bond of language’. —————- My source: Kasravi on the Turkish language in Iran [Link: http://www.Iran.qlineorientalist.com ] —————-

Babak Khorramdin

Bâbâk Xorramdin was one of the main Persian revolutionary leaders of the Zoroastrian ressistence movement in 9th century Iran, originating in the Iranian province of Âzarbâyjân, fighting the Abbasid Caliphate. This was 200 years before Turkic tribes entered the Middle East!

The Safavid Dynasty: Persia's Nightmare

The Safavid rule in Iran, for which every decent Iranian should be ASHAMED of, completed the turcification of Âzarbâyjân. – – During the reign of Šâh Esmâ’il Safavi the language was Turkish and he himself wrote poems in Turkish. His mother belonged to the Turkic tribe of Hassan Beyk. One of the reasons why the Turkish language during the Safavid era, gained more and more the upper hand, was that most of the Safavid followers originated from Turkic tribes. – – Also the military foundation of the Safavids were the 7 famous tribes: Eastâjlu, Šâmlu, Rumlu, Takalu, Zolqadr, Afšâr and Qâjâr. The Safavids also had the support of Qarje Dâq of Âzarbâyjân. After 500 years of oppression, genocide, humiliation, and 2 centuries of Mongol rule and wars, the Iranians were becoming weaker and weaker, and devoted themselves to Sufism, poetry, and the Batinija sect instead of liberating themselves from the Turks and to fight liberation wars against them. – – The Safavid dynasty came to power with the help of the warlike Turks in Âzarbâyjân. And thus all the court and government apparatuses were organized by Turks, who were stationed in the Safavid capitals, like Tabriz, Qazvin and Isfahan. All titles were from now on Turkic titles like Išik Âqâsi, Ilci, Beyk, Biglar Beygi, Xânlar Xâni, etc. – *

Muslim Invasion of Persia

By 654 #Islamic invasion reached and then took over most of #Persia – save for a remote mountainous region in the north known as Tabârestân. The ancestors of the Mazanderanis; the people of #Tabaristan – were not eager to to surrender. The #Dabuyid dynasty; claiming descent from the #Sassanids #Kings held out as an independent bastion for #Zoroastrian faith for more than a century. Their small force led by Spâhbod Farruxân the Great; defeated the #Muslims in 716; during the #Umayyad invasion of Tabaristan. *

Liberation of Persia

Râdmân pure Mâhak aka Ya’qobe Leyse Saffâri [یعقوب لیث صفاری] was a #Persian warlord & a #Zoroastrian coppersmith from the eastern #Iranian province Xorâsân [Khorasan]. He was a recent convert to Islam. Under his military leadership large parts of Greater #Iran were reconquered from the Arabs. Râdmân & his successors avidly promoted #Islam alongside Persian language & culture throughout their Empire. * *

Separatism in Iran

The Iran crisis of 1946 was one of the first crises of the Cold War, sparked by the refusal of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union to relinquish occupied Iranian territory, despite repeated assurances. Pro-Soviet Iranians proclaimed the separatist Azerbaijan People’s Government and the Kurdish separatist Republic of Mahabad. The civil war ended in a deceisive Iranian victory.
