The Origins of Hate


Mossadegh, Man of the Year was the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 to 1953 when he was overthrown in a coup d’├ętat orchestrated by the British MI5 and the United States Central Intelligence Agency.

This is crucial in understanding the current state of affairs with Iran, it has been our constant meddling in their affairs that has caused an anti-American sentiment and it started with our overthrowing their democratically elected Prime Minister all because he wanted to nationalize his countries oil and prevent British and American interests from raping his countries greatest natural resource. 

In 1953 the United States CIA along with the British Intelligence Agency MI5 orchestrated a coup to overthrow the democratically elected leader of Iran, Prime Minister, Mohammed Mossadeqh. The British were upset over Mossadeqh's plan to socialize Iran's oil industry. The Eisenhower Administration believed its actions were justified for strategic reasons. Installed was Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, commonly referred to as the Shah. The Shah denationalized the oil industry.
