They have excellent cinematography and make films, as good as European were in the past (looooong, long time ago). Like for now, I didn't like only one from these, which I was able to see - /movie_209463-Bad-ma-ra-khahad-bord.html

Andre Malraux wrote When CIA support le coup d'etat against Pahlavi...

Don't you mean Mossadegh? Pahlavi was the Shah.

So Mossadegh, not Pahlavi. ;) Indeed a democratically elected leader overthrown by the CIA, but at the request of the British.

Something they haven't forgotten: "Our enemies, especially America , Britain and the Zionist regime (Israel)"

Well no, Pahlavi was forced out by his own people, he was America's puppet, so unlikely that was supported by the CIA. The real "coup d'etat" was against Mossadeq in 1953, in another conflict over oil, which started it all.

Pahlavi was basically installed by America after taking out Mossadecq, that's why Iranians hated him.

The same way Saddam Hussein was an American ally against Iran that had become unresponsive. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 proved a great opportunity to finally overthrow him...

Khomenei was certainly a disaster but extremism in the Middle East is more a response to this kind of meddling and foreign control, not to reject civilisation.

It's not that the US did not support Pahlavi, we always considered him one of our most, if not the most, faithful ally in the region at the time. But when the revolution came and his domestic support faltered, Carter and his administration found themselves in a no-win situation. The revolution and his overthrow was in no way supported by the US or the CIA. Pahlavi had many strong traits, but one of his biggest faults was the excess of his rule and lifestyle.

Since you're so knowledgable about Iranian history, you surely remember that numerous different groups, both Islamist and not, were involved in the uprising against the Shah. Once the Shah was out of the way, Khomenei and his supporters outmanoeuvred the others.
