In 1979, a credulous nation, now disillusioned and despondent, was deceived. The people of Iran witnessed this devastating catastrophe in contemporary Iranian history, and hundreds of thousands were senselessly killed in war. The mullahs within Iran have acted destructively, fueled by a pathological drive and superficial uproar, and their propaganda machine persistently exaggerates and denies reality. Iranian contemporary history is constantly subjected to the clerical regime’s brainwashing, distortion, and censorship.

However, the 45-year history of mullah rule in Iran is filled with a colorful array of crimes. It could be said that after 1979, with the emergence of a terrible dictatorship, the wheel of civilization in Iran began to turn backward. In 1979, both the Shah and the nation were doomed to a heavy fall, breaking the traditional bond between the Shah and the people. Since that day, these criminals, terrorist breeders, savage torturers, and lawbreakers have revealed their ugly, deceitful faces through brutality and the use of intimidation and terror domestically. The export of Khomeini’s revolution also created crises and tensions in the region and globally. However, the people of Iran never authorized their occupying government to export the revolution.

The Khomeinist mullahs, or swordsmen of the ideological realm, in their quest to maintain power, have not hesitated to send thousands to execution squads and commit murders in streets and torture tens of thousands in dungeons, showing no shame for their crimes and injustice and knowing no logic other than that of an iron fist, which is crisis-inducing and catastrophic. The regime, which breeds terrorists—murderous, repressive, regressive, fanatical, insane, and despicable—or those believers in Islamic jihad (Islamic terrorism) within the Ayatollah’s factory, mainly engage in bombings, massacres, terrorist attacks, and hostage-taking both inside and outside the country. The regime operates like a massive complex of crime, stupidity, and treason, killing to achieve its goals. Any criticism or dissenting voices are silenced by a government of professional criminals. Yet, there are still brainwashed individuals or those benefiting from financial and communication resources and propaganda who defend this executioner’s regime. These individuals, often boastful, disgrace-accepting, short-sighted, alienated, and salaried, have lost their honor and authenticity.

The task of documenting the crimes of a regime, as undertaken by writers and researchers like Iraj Mesdaghi, is not merely an act of historical record-keeping but a vital effort toward justice and awareness. Mesdaghi, a former prisoner who endured the harrowing confines of the Islamic Republic’s prisons and dungeons, brings a unique and authentic perspective to the atrocities committed. His commitment to writing these books is a testament to the resilience and courage required to confront a past marred by violence and oppression.

Publishing books on contemporary history in a country like Iran, where the political landscape is fraught with complexities and dangers, is a formidable challenge. Authors face not only the typical hurdles of censorship and lack of resources but also direct threats to their safety and well-being. Hundreds of political factions and individuals, driven by deep-seated vendettas, frequently engage in campaigns to discredit and silence voices like Mesdaghi’s. They wield insults, spread rumors, and fabricate legal troubles in efforts to mute the uncomfortable truths these books reveal.

Despite these obstacles, the publication of such works is crucial. They serve as an invaluable resource for the global community, providing insights that are often obscured or altered by official narratives. For the people of Iran, these books offer a form of validation and remembrance for the suffering endured, promoting a collective healing process. Moreover, they play a critical role in the international arena, where understanding the nuanced reality of Iran’s political and social dynamics is essential for informed diplomacy and policy-making.

Mesdaghi’s determination to continue his work, despite the hostility he faces, underscores the importance of these books. His resilience ensures that the atrocities are not forgotten and that they are acknowledged in the broader context of global human rights. Such work hopes to inspire accountability and, ultimately, change that ensures such history does not repeat itself. The anticipation that these books will be well-received speaks to a universal human quest for truth and justice, and the importance of supporting voices that dare to recount the grim realities of oppressive regimes.
