Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson: What Do Iran’s Mullahs Want?

When dealing with the mullahs ruling Iran, what you see is not what you get, and what you hear is not what they mean. Transparency and honesty are not their strong suits. So, we need a first-rate sleuth to see through their smoke and mirrors and beyond their twisted tongues into their warped brains.

Who else but Sherlock Holmes can be our man to tell us what the mullahs really want?

The fact of the matter, as far as we can tell, is that the mullahs are waving a big menacing stick over the world’s head—their nuclear program and its ramifications.

The mullahs, however, say to the world (if you are ever foolish enough to trust the word of a people whose religion not only officially condones but recommends taqqeyh—lying—to achieve a higher purpose) they promise, on their Boy Scout’s honor, to limit their nuclear activity to peaceful endeavors under the United Nation’s watchdog.

From its past performance, rather than its absence of performance, we know that the UN watchdog is a true disgrace to dogs since all it does is eat, sleep, and look the other way. Furthermore, the dog has no teeth. The vet had to pull all its teeth before the dog became acceptable to the crafty cats that constitute the UN itself.

In return for their promise that you cannot even sell at a 100% discount, the mullahs demand that the world—led by the Big Dog, the United States of America, and the lesser dogs, the Europeans— give them an iron-clad security blanket.

The bargain that the Allah-fearing and peace-loving mullahs offer makes even the shrewdest Yankee trader strictly amateurish by comparison, one suspects.

“What is the problem? What do the mullahs mean by ‘security blanket,’ Holmes?” asks Dr. Watson.

“Simplicity itself, Watson,” answers Sherlock Holmes. “But first, as an exercise in detection, give me your own surmise on the matter. Do the mullahs want a security blanket to guard against the U.S. military attack, the rabid Iraqis who might break out of their cage in Baghdad again and bite them, or the Emirs of the Gulf States who are happily immersed up to their headgear, frolicking in their harems?” The master asks his pupil.

“Breathlessly, Holmes, I await your never-erring elucidation of the enigma,” says Holmes’ always-at-sea sidekick.

“Well then. We can safely rule out the butcher of Baghdad, Saddam Hussein. He is no longer alive, and the murderous gang of Tikriti killers known as the Republican Guard is also gone. Saddam Hussein must have known that the Republican Guard could not stop the advance of the U.S. military on Baghdad. Saddam is replaced with a friendly regime toward their Shiite brothers in Iran. There is no more a threat from the Iraqis. Thanks to “Uncle Sam.” Remember how Saddam was paraded periodically at his trial and displayed on television for all the Iraqis who had suffered under his rule to get even with him by spitting on his image? An aside, my dear Watson, have you noticed that the Arabs have this nasty habit of spitting at anyone or anything they dislike? So, that rules out Saddam and Iraqi guards. Do you agree with Watson?” pontificates the master.

“I do,” replies Watson.

“As for the Emirs and Sheiks posing security threats to the mullahs, we hardly need to take that possibility seriously. These parasites, with their immense petrodollars, are busy having a blast. They may be dumb, but they are not stupid. They hardly want to mess around with the rabid, turbaned zealots across the Persian Gulf. They smugly feel safe, at least for now. And ‘now’ is the operative word for them. They will worry about ‘later,’ later. Life is too short, they surmise; they have little faith in Allah’s promised paradise with all the virgins, and they are busy making the most of the paradise they have on earth. Also, they are comforted in the knowledge that the Big Dog, also known as the Great Satan in some circles, is on the job with its huge force of armed to–the–teeth fighters protecting them so he can continue feeding his habit—imbibing oil. So, the Emirs keep pumping oil, frolic, and let the Big Dog do the worrying while they do what they really like to do,” explains Holmes, takes a long drag on his pipe, stares at the overhead rings of smoke, and says no more, to Watson’s consternation.

“Holmes, you did not complete your explanation, I dare say. Would you also explain the role of the E3, the European Three, in this melodrama,” Watson intones.

“Patience, Watson, patience. Well then. The E3 dogs have interjected themselves into the squabble. They have taken a page from the Prince’s Machiavellian Book of Statesmanship by pretending to be honest brokers while letting the Americans bleed both blood as well as money. The E3 feel that the more the Big Dog is busy fighting, the less it can eat, and more is left for them,” says the great man.

“Yes?” presses Watson.

“As for the Big Dog going after the mullahs, it is completely out of the question. Everyone is opposed to it. The Iraq misadventure has hopefully taught them an old lesson they seem to have had difficulty learning. The lesson is that it is a terrible mistake to go halfway across the world and invade a country unless you are able and willing to bulldoze the whole thing from one end to the other, with all the people, bar none, buried under the rubble. Recent military undertakings have been, by and large, busts—in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and even Afghanistan, where the indigenous people seem largely supportive of the effort,” says Holmes.

“Holmes, with all due respect, you are taxing my patience. Please spell it out without going on a great detour. Since you have eliminated all the suspects, why do the mullahs want a security blanket from the world powers, and why are they so insistent upon it?” Watson demands.

“The ever-conniving mullahs dread the Iranian people. Granted that a small percentage of Iranians, known as the 3Fs—fools, fanatics, and frauds—support the mullahs. No totalitarian rule can survive without that population segment, for one reason or another, supporting it. Yet, time is not on the side of the mullahs. Through their mismanagement, thievery, and oppression of the masses, they have created explosive internal conditions. Any significant support of the presently splintered Iranian opposition will be the tipping point—a tipping point that would assuredly topple the mullahs,” says Holmes, and rewards himself with another long drag on his pipe.

“So, the mullahs want the powers that be, led by the Big Dog, to lend no support of any kind, moral or material, to the Iranian people?” asks Watson.

“Yes, Watson, that’s their life insurance. The mullahs like their lifestyle and want to bequeath it to their children. They are also long-term planners. They have maniacal messianic delusions of someday ruling the world. Presently, they will do all they can to imprison and kill with impunity the internal opposition and want the rest of the world to keep its nose out of their “family” business. In the meantime, they will, with greater peace of mind, pursue their quest for the nuclear bomb, by hook or crook and keep the fat UN watchdog happily in a slumberous state by throwing it a bone or two from time to time,” concludes the master sleuth.

“Holmes, that’s a cynical view of the world, I say,” pipes up Watson.

“It is a cynical world, my dear Watson,” retorts the master.

Domestic Genocide in Iran

Mullahs and their mercenaries are terrorizing the Iranian people. 

The world’s most notorious state exponent of anti-Semitism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is on a path to uproot not only all that is perceived as civilized but to annihilate the greatest threat to its existence, the Iranian people. The mullahs and their mercenaries are wasting precious human lives in order to maintain their power by terrorizing.

The Iranian people are simply hopeless and helpless.

The population.

The Iranian people are simply hopeless and helpless. Even the United Nations does not come to their rescue. From its past performance, rather than its absence of performance, we know that the UN watchdog is a true disgrace to dogs since all it does is eat, sleep, and look the other way. Furthermore, the dog has no teeth. The vet had to pull all its teeth before the dog became acceptable to the crafty cats that constitute the UN itself.

The Islamic Republic is a unique creature – it is best described as a theocratic aristocracy. The “divinely ordained” rulers maintained themselves in power through an elaborate system of patronage. Lucrative positions, contracts and valued privileges are distributed in this way. The result is that the ruling mullahs enjoy a significant number of supporters in all strata of society – the civil service, the military, the powerful Revolutionary Guards, and the hooligans and thugs who are ready to unleash their vicious attacks on anyone or any group that dares to challenge the in-charge men of Allah.

The illegitimate government of the Islamic Republic is a quisling entity that has betrayed its people, its tradition, and its glorious pre-Islamic achievements and is incessantly working against Iran’s national interest. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the mullahs, has been transformed, in less than three decades, into the lead perpetrator of all that is abhorrent to humanity.

The supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei, like his predecessor, Ayatollah Khomeini, whose callous disregard for human life was matched only by his consuming paranoia, allegedly has issued a decree to hang Iranian dissidents publicly in all the towns and villages with a population that exceeds 1,000 people. For Ayatollah Khamenei, dissident viewpoints represent an unacceptable threat. Anyone found questioning the Shari’a law – and many hundreds of thousands were – had to be “weeded out.” The Islamic Republic is on a mission to end human life in Iran.

The Islamic Republic has the dubious distinction of executing more children, those under the age of 18, than any other country in the world. Such is the plight of the Iranian people.

Iran’s ruling mullahs are clustered around major factions such as the fundamentalists, the moderates, and the so-called reformists. Yet, the differences among these factions are tactical rather than strategic. One and all share the same overarching goal of defeating the “Crusader-Zionists” by any and all methods possible, bringing about the “end of the world” Armageddon, and thereby creating the requisite conditions for the appearance of the Hidden Imam, the Mahdi, to assume his rule of the world.

“What is the likelihood that the ruling mullahs will actually use the bomb?” you may ask. “If they remain in power long enough to have it, they are very likely to use it, in one form or another,” you are told. At the very least, they will use the bomb for blackmail and intimidation in the region. You may ask how you can help prevent this catastrophe. “Support the Iranian peoples’ struggle for freedom by at least petitioning,” you are told.

In order to achieve total control, the Islamic Republic and its lackeys spawned a series of immense internal purges, beginning in 1988 and known as the “Massacre of Political Prisoners of 1988.” They have intensified their domestic terror in recent months and weeks.

A society that is intense in its struggle for change has a flip side to its idealism: intolerance. This totalitarian regime sees enemies everywhere, enemies who want to destroy the Islamic Revolution and diminish the results of its hard work of creating an Islamic utopia in the land of Cyrus the Great.

The regime seems to be panicking with hyper-suspiciousness. They have installed watchdogs in schools, universities, factories, and all offices across the country and are urged to be vigilant against sabotage, against those who crave freedom and democracy. Many innocent Iranians are being victimized, and the saying has gone around that “when you chop wood, the chips fly.” As with Khamenei, it is believed that some who are innocent will have to be victimized if all of the guilty are to be apprehended.

In fact, they stigmatize, victimize, and murder people without any due process of law. On the slightest suspicion, they arrest, convict, and execute. Few people would deny any longer that Islam and its variants mean, in practice, bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal actions, forced hijab, fatal deportations, extrajudicial executions, show trials, and genocide. It is killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the greatest threats to the stability of the civilized world and humanity at large. It continues to impose this horrendous ideology called Islam on the Iranian population. The world must file legal charges against the leaders of the Islamic Republic for their wanton violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for their crimes against humanity and genocidal actions against religion. 

The regime seems to be panicking

And political groups; for support of international terrorism; for demolition of religious sites and cemeteries; for rape, torture, and summary executions of prisoners of conscience; forgery of documents; for acts of blackmail and fraud; and much more.

To those misguided advocates of negotiation with the mullahs, beware. The mullahs are on an Allah-mandated mission. They are intoxicated with petrodollars and aim to settle for nothing less than complete domination of the world under the Islamic Ummah. It is precisely for this reason that they consider America and the West as Ofooli, a setting, dying system, while they believe their Islamism is Tolooi, a rising, living order. They are in no mood to negotiate for anything less than the total surrender of democracy, the very anathema to Islamism. This is only one reason, but perhaps one of the greatest reasons, for fostering democracy.

On June 7, 1981, Israel Israel launched “Operation Opera” (Hebrew: אופרה) and destroyed Saddam Hussain’s nuclear bomb capability.  Operation Opera prevented Saddam Hussein from developing and using nuclear weapons to destroy the state of Israel.

On June 7, 1981 Israel launched “Operation Opera” (Hebrew: אופרה) attacking Baghdad.

Here’s General David Ivry the IAF commander of Operation Opera’s story with Tom Trento from the United West.

Reread that sentence because the globally condemned actions of Israel in Iraq have proven to be the right decision, at the right time and those countries which condemned, soon after, praised Israel for their bold, daring, very dangerous attack, that has kept the world safe from a madman’s apocalyptic delusions.

Did I say, “a madman’s apocalyptic delusions?”

Clearly, that description causes your brain to see the insane, satanic leaders of Iran, specifically, the Ayatollah Khamenei.

Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei is an Iranian Twelver Shia and politician who has been the second supreme leader of Iran since 1989

Ayatollah Khamenei wants to destroy all of Israel because Allah told him to do that and he can’t go against Allah & Mohammad.

Give this Saddamesque madman a big bomb and the World is in a helluva mess.

So, here are a few questions to ponder as Muslims worldwide, energized by Iran, continue destructive demonstrations against Jews and Israel, especially here in America.


  1. Will the Shia leaders of Iran find “Jesus” and change their ways?
  2. Will the Shia leaders of Iran realize that their apocalyptic dreams are the delusions of madmen?
  3. Once the Mullahs get their nukes, will they finally realize it would be a mistake to bomb and destroy Israel?
  4. Are there any countries that have the guts to unilaterally attack Iran and destroy their nuclear capability thus protecting the entire world?

If you answered “NO” to these questions, then shut your mouth!

When the 7.5 million Israeli’s, once again, risking their blood and treasure, attack and destroy Iran’s nukes, which should really be done by a coalition of the billions of citizens in the free countries, too afraid to fight unadulterated evil.


In 2015, The United West tried to STOP, President Obama’s “deal” with Iran, designed to slow down their nuclear bomb program but in fact, did the opposite. Instead of a bogus deal, the West (and several Arab countries) should have bombed Iran’s nuclear facilities. If that was done in 2015, The World would NOT have the problem of Iran as the number one global terrorist threat.

Iran: Christian activist forced to strip, says Islamic regime uses sexual violence against female protestors

The idea is to humiliate and degrade them, and by raping them, to deny them a place in paradise, for in Islam it is entirely the woman’s responsibility to prevent a man from being tempted (hence the hijab, chador, niqab, burqa), and if he is tempted anyway, it’s her fault.

Exclusive: ‘Was forced to strip, govt uses sexual violence against female protesters,’ says Iranian Christian activist

by Annu Kaushik, Firstpost, October 17, 2022:

In 2020, Mary Mohammadi was taken to a detention center near Iran’s capital Tehran. Officials told her that her hair was visible.

In the basement of the all-female detention center, Mary was forced to strip.

“If my hair is a problem, is it not a problem to force me to take off all my clothes? Is this Islamic?,” Mary told Firstpost in an exclusive conversation.

The incident was part of the sexual violence that the regime has been using to suppress female protesters and activists, Mary said.

“During protests, security personnel touch female demonstrators inappropriately. They want to make women fearful of stepping out,” she said.

24-year-old Mary has been on the radar of Iranian officials for several reasons. Born to a Muslim family, she converted to Christianity in 2017.

Christian converts and other religious minorities like the Bahais are not recognised in Iran.

Over the last few years, Mary has faced persecution from the authorities in the form of arrests and interrogations due to her faith as well as activism.

The personnel who transferred her to the detention center in 2020 belonged to the morality police which is currently in the eye of the storm due to the death of Mahsa Amini which has triggered nationwide protests in Iran.

But it’s not just the morality police who target women for not wearing the mandatory hijab or a head scarf or wearing it improperly.

According to Mary “radical Muslims do it too.”

In 2019, Mary was on a bus in Tehran. It was a hot day and she had taken off her hijab. Suddenly a fully veiled woman approached Mary and asked her to cover her hair.

“When I refused, an argument ensued during which the woman attacked me & my face was left bloodied,” Mary said.

The activist somehow managed to take the woman to the police station. According to Mary, the officers dissuaded her from filing a complaint and even threatened her with arrest.

“They (police) were very kind to that woman. They let her go at 10 pm but kept me in custody till 3 am,” she added.

“Radical Muslims can even attack minorities in public because the regime is behind them,

“Islamic hijab is mandatory in Iran even for non-Muslims. I am a Christian but I must wear hijab,” she said.

Mary’s activism and faith also took a personal toll. Without giving any reason, her university barred her from appearing in exams.

But what was more hurtful for Mary was the treatment meted out to her by a former employer who was also a close friend.

“The gymnast training center where I worked was shut down during the COVID lockdown. I kept asking my employers when I can return and they told me and they are still closed,” Mary said.

One day, the activist turned up at the center unannounced and saw that it was fully operational.

Mary was not given her job back and believes that her employer and the university faced pressure from the authorities.

Constant threats that Mary said were from the authorities forced her to flee Iran in February 2022. The activist who is currently living in the US told Firstpost that in her home country security forces “continue to use sexual violence in the ongoing protests.”…

U.S. General: Biden’s Handlers’ Sanctions Relief for Iran Will Aid Mullahs’ Assassination Plots

Which side is Old Joe on? It’s never hard to tell.

“US General: Biden Sanctions Relief for Iran Will Aid Iranian Assassination Plots,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 21, 2022:

Iran will use cash assets provided by the Biden administration as part of a new nuclear accord to fund regional terror groups and enhance the capabilities of a militant network committed to assassinating U.S. officials, according to written testimony to Congress from a top U.S. military commander exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Gen. Stephen Townsend, who led U.S. Africa Command until August of this year, in March warned Congress that Iran is certain to use “at least some of the resources gained from sanctions relief to” increase its illicit shipment of advanced weapons to terror groups operating in Africa and the Near East region, according to written information he provided to Sen. Joni Ernst (R., Iowa) after a public hearing before Congress.

In addition to boosting Iran’s terror allies like the Houthi rebels in Yemen, sanctions relief will enable Tehran to expand its Iranian Threat Network, a group of terror cells run by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’s Quds Force that is focused on assassinating American officials, according to Townsend.

With a new Iran nuclear deal expected to provide Iran with up to a trillion dollars over the lifetime of the deal, a coalition of Republican lawmakers on Wednesday introduced new legislation that would bar the Biden administration from implementing the accord until it can certify to Congress that Iran has not engaged in assassination plots on Americans in five years. The bill, which is sponsored by Ernst and Rep. Michael Waltz (R., Fla.), was sparked by Iran’s ongoing efforts to assassinate former U.S. officials like former national security adviser John Bolton and former secretary of state Mike Pompeo.

The disclosures made by Townsend in his communications to Congress are likely to generate further support for the legislation even among Democrats, some of whom recently wrote to President Joe Biden expressing concern about the impending deal.

“It’s hard to fathom that, after countless attacks on Americans, and multiple confirmed plots against U.S. officials, the Biden administration continues to cozy up to Iran in hopes of a mythical, so-called nuclear deal,” Ernst said in a statement. “President Biden should not provide a dime of sanctions relief to the largest state sponsor of terrorism, which is actively trying to kill U.S. officials and citizens, at home and abroad.”

Townsend, who testified before Congress in mid-March, confirmed that sanctions relief provided under a revamped version of the 2015 nuclear deal will directly fund Iranian-backed terrorist organizations. His analysis was provided in a written form to Ernst after she posed a series of additional questions following that briefing.

“If the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is renewed, Iran will likely use at least some of the resources gained from sanctions relief to intensify the pursuit of its interests in Africa,” Townsend said. “Tehran likely will allocate additional revenue to boost lethal aid facilitation to the [Houthis] in Yemen through smuggling routes and East Africa, and could further develop Iranian Threat Network (ITN) capabilities on the continent.”

Once Iran’s regime has access to hard currency freed up under the deal, it “will likely seek opportunities to exploit regional conflicts and the counterterrorism needs of African governments to increase arms sales, enhance defense cooperation, and to undermine Western and Israeli partnerships and ambitions on the continent,” Townsend said. “Though these efforts are nascent, a growing Iranian presence also would provide increased cover for the ITN facilitation network and operational expansion.”

Since late 2020, at least 10 Iranian assassination plots orchestrated in the region by the ITN have been disrupted, according to Townsend, including two against U.S. officials in Africa. Other plots targeted Israeli interests.

“Iran almost certainly continues to seek retaliation for the death of former IRGC-QF commander Qassem Soleimani, and it could leverage the ITN to attack high-level U.S. government or military officials visiting or staying in Africa, especially if Iran suspects them of complicity in Soleimani’s death,” Townsend said….

VIDEO: Biden’s Handlers Won’t Open Domestic Production, May Buy Iranian Oil

“Tell me you hate America, without telling me you hate America.”

The Biden administration is still fighting congressional efforts to stop the importation of Iranian oil. In a surreal exercise, Biden expects the rest of the world to sanction Russia even as we keep buying Russian energy products. And if that’s not enough, the former Mayor of South Bend is down with Iranian oil.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Wednesday that “all options are on the table” during a discussion about oil prices after MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked if President Biden would consider “working something out with Iran.”

Do all options also include the 25th Amendment?

Biden will get oil anywhere and from any of our enemies… just not from Americans.

While Biden gives meaningless quotes about Russia and Ukraine, the Russians are negotiating an even worse version of the Iran Deal that Biden is expected to sign on to.

The Russians may be getting kicked out of the Paralympics and the cat shows, but Putin is still in the driver’s seat at the White House

The rest of it, the hollow saber-rattling, the sanctions, and the propaganda are a show. The reality can be seen quickly enough if you follow the power and the money.

Open Letter from Iranian Human Rights Activists: ‘Do Not Appease the Iranian Regime’


Unidentified Iranian woman protesting.

In the past few weeks, some Iranian activists have vocally supported the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 (China, Russia, France, United Kingdom, United States and Germany). While we deeply respect the experience and views of these men and women, it is important to hear all perspectives.

We represent another collection of Iranian activists who share the world’s hope for a better future but believe that appeasing the Iranian regime will lead to a more dangerous world.

We have spent our lives advocating for peace, justice and freedom in Iran. We represent a diverse array of Iranians who hope to warn the world of the danger of this regime regardless of how many centrifuges spin in Iran.

This deal will provide up to $150 billion windfall of cash into the bank account of our tyrants and theocrats. This money will not be spent on the Iranian people but rather to enrich a repressive regime.

Sadly, the world has not demanded real improvements in human rights. Thousands of activists continue to languish behind bars (including several Americans) and it is tragic that their release was not included in these discussions.

We are sounding the alarm bells before it is too late. Those who care about peace should help restore focus to the Iranian regime’s brutal human rights records, its support for global terror and role in destabilizing the Middle East. More pressure should be applied to the regime, not less.

One day when the Iranian people are finally free, they will hold an accounting of who stood on their side and who stood on the regime’s. It is not too late to hold the Iranian regime accountable for their continued human rights violations.

Today in Iran, political prisoners are tortured. Bloggers, journalists and teachers remain behind bars. Sexual and religious rights are trampled. Women are treated as second class citizens.

Western apologists and appeasers of Iranian theocracy do no favors to the Iranian people. They distance the likelihood of positive change and undercut the hopes of the Iranian people.

When the Iranian regime no longer fears its people, then the world will no longer have a reason to fear the Iranian regime.
