Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi-Andrew Higgins-wsj

To: The Wall Street Journal

Dear Sir/Madam,

In your article titled “Inside Iran's Holy Money Machine” (June 2, 2007), it is claimed that Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, took power “after an American-orchestrated coup” in 1953.

That statement is not factual.

Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi came to power in 1941, during the second world war, after the forced abdication and exile of his father Reza Shah Pahlavi (who had declared Iran’s neutrality) by the invading Anglo-Soviet armies. The exact date, should you decide to make the correction, was September 16, 1941.

Sincerely,

A reader

میتوان بر این افزود که نیاکان مصدق‌السلطنه (ایل قجر) با کشتار صدها هزار نفر، از تفلیس گرفته تا کرمان، در سال ۱٧٩٦ به قدرت رسیدند
