In 1979 the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, left the country as an Islamic Republic was founded by Rohollah Khomeini. Since then, hundreds of million dollars have been used by the Islamic regime in Iran to destroy the image of the Shah and the monarchy. Today, as 38 years have passed since the Islamic take-over of Iran, and 37 years have passed since the death of the Shah in Cairo, we clearly establish that the Islamic Republic has failed.
Indeed, the support for the Shah is increasing for everyday, as the people of Iran to a greater degree understands how the many accusations towards the Shah and his reign was mostly lies and fabrications. The support for the late Shah and the monarchy is of such magnitude that the Islamic regime has stated that the monarchists are the largest threat to the regime: Abbas Salimi Namin, a high ranking member of the Islamic regime and close to the supreme leader Ali Khamenei, former editor-in-chief of the influential newspaper ”Kayhan” and later the director of the ”Office of Iranian History”, stated in an interview with the ”Student News Agency” that the monarchists are the greatest threat to the security of the Islamic republic.
1979 skakades Iran av en revolt. Shahen av Iran lämnade landet och Khomeini införde en islamisk republik. Den nya islamiska republiken firade sitt maktövertag med massavrättningar. Från och med februari 1979 till början på december 1981, avrättades mer än 3200 personer. Under 3 dagar, mellan 18-20 september 1981, avrättade mer än 300 människor [Amnesty International rapport.

The curious one is very welcome to read the paper. Please share your views with me.
In this short comment I want to highlight a very interesting finding. The study is conducted in Sweden. What we can see is that knife/sharp weapon is the most common type of weapon used (52.6%). Firearms are used in 36.8% of all cases. This is a very high number for Sweden. Much higher than both its neighbors as well as the rest of Western Europe. The number for Norway is between 19-21%, for Denmark it is between 0.4-19%, Finland lies on 16% and Holland is close to 35%. For other western European countries, the number of fire-arm related homicide is close to 19%. With western European countries we mean UK, France, Germany etc.
In comparison, our study shows a very high number of firearms used in homicide and attempted homicide which is highly troublesome.
And as I am writing this post, I receive news about a new shootout in Malmö, south of Sweden, in the center of the city, in the daylight.
