UK deliberately hushing WWI massacre of Iranians


by Rodney Shakespeare, …and Press TV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: I had not heard of this story to date, but it came as no surprise. During the war colonialist troops dealt with natives in the manner of the day, by order of requisition.

The strong took from the weak to keep the fighting forces in the field, including Britain shipping foodstuffs to the Russians who were hard pressed at the time.

WWI was a huge killer, and whatever colonialist crimes were committed on the downtrodden were repaid with the post war flu epidemic that killed the rich and the poor indiscriminately.

The death toll was higher than the huge combat losses. But as we learn to today, myself anyway, the Brits did a “clean up” on their participation, which in their defense, the droughts in Iran at the time was also a major factor… Jim W. Dean ]

A political analyst  from London believes it has been a deliberate policy of the British government and the mainstream media in the West to keep silent about the massacre of millions of Iranians during the First World War.

Rodney Shakespeare said in an interview with the Press TV that Britain has always tried to depict the mass killing of Jews by the Nazi Germany in the Second World War as the most notorious tragedy of the last century, adding that other incidents such as the massacre of the Iranians has always been hushed.

“Yes there was the mass killing of Jews, but a greater number … probably about eight to 10 million, was the killing of Iranians by the British in the two years 1917 to 1919, and the figure … is more than the roughly six million Jews killed by the Nazis,” he said.

 “That Iranian devastation is not mentioned today … and whilst there are continuing remainders of one mass killing, that of Jews, there is silence about the other, the killing of Iranians,” he added.

Shakespeare said it is a policy of the British Foreign Office and the Zionist-controlled media to uphold that “disgraceful silence” about the mass killing of the Iranians during the First World War.

“It is disgraceful that knowledge of something only one hundred years ago, because that’s what we are talking about, is deliberately suppressed,” he said.

The expert said Western powers like Britain are still involved in mass murder of civilians in various parts of the world or continue to keep silent about such incidents despite their consistent propaganda on human rights

He said the mass exodus and killing of Muslims in Myanmar and Yemen were two clear examples of such hypocrite policy.

“The West’s continued lecturing of others about human rights and the like does not sit well with the gruesome record of mass killing,” said Shakespeare.

  1. And what about the period before WWI and WWII and after? Man’s inhumanity to man didn’t begin then. Remember reading about the dark ages? Today everywhere on the planet where an army of any military of any country has been, they leave a toxic waste dump somewhere on this planet. Forests, oceans, rivers, air, water, all polluted with toxic chemicals, plastic, electronics, and on and on and on. It is a good thing the animals don’t unite against us because I am sure they would love to obliterate man from the face of the earth. Man is a worthless piece of expletive deleted garbage who evolved DOWN from the higher animals according to Mark Twain. If something isn’t done to end the total rape of the earth by man, no living thing will survive and the Earth will be totally dead. Man deserves his fate.

  2. Here’s my woo woo for the day. It is our Pluto return for the US, astrologically speaking. The prediction would have been the analysis of monetary policy and re-analysis of origin, as well as the changes in all areas.
    For Britain, it would be , to struggle to maintain their presence in our life. This we see quite starkly.
    The review, shows that we have not climbed very far from under their watch and influence. The way we are bombarded with royal propaganda, and spy infiltration, has come to the fore. The tandem of Trump and Brexit, should be all anyone needs to see it. Both major points in history, linked through Cambridge Analytica.

  3. If you press a thumb anywhere on a spinning Scout Globe you can rest assured the British have done some killings there. They plagued the earth much like the abortion and other major killers. Hell, they even burned down the White House and half of Washington, talk about terrorist achievers. They even militarily attacked uninhabited islands.

  4. There’s no need to repeat the lie that 6 million Jews died, at the hands of Germany, in WW2. It has been sufficiently proven false in a number of ways. The entire population of Jews in Europe at the time was barely that, with but 500,000 living in Germany. So, the math alone doesn’t add up. How many Jews survived the camps? Well, according to post WWII claims for reparations there were several millions of survivors. Simple addition and subtraction is all one needs to determine some one’s not telling the truth.
    Neither the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians, and 10 million Iranians will ever be allowed proper inspection because the Jews will suffer no competition in the holocaust arena. Maybe it’s pure greed which makes this so. After all there’s only so many billions collected each year to repair the damages of the fake holocaust, there’s no room for real ones. I mean where would it end? Armenians, Houtis, Iranians, Congolese, American Indians, Indian Indians, Tutsis, Guatemalans, Russian Christians, Chinese, Cambodians, and on it goes.
    All I’m asking is for those who author articles like this, where in they feel the need to mention dead Jews and WW2, stop repeating the lie of 6 million., because when you do that the smart readers in your audience will just tune you out. And there are a lot of smart readers. If you’re having trouble, with did it happen like they say, please do some research. A few hours will be sufficient.

    • Joetv, In a poll just in, in the UK 1 out of 12 people do not believe in the Holocaust, that’s about 6 million, go figure. (this figure was not mentioned in the sound bite)
      Off course this may be a ruse by the Zionists to get the UK taxpayer to up the ante and get more school children indoctrinated in their annual pilgrimage to Auschwitz.
      However, the story is failing as more and more each day are learning the truth.
