Iran: The Re-entry Problem

September 1978
National Review;9/29/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 39, p1190
This article discuses issues related to political and economic developments in Iran. It also presents information on the conditions of Vietnamese refugees. It is stated that while certain sectors of society have become economically progressive, scientifically advanced and politically active, others are relatively untouched by modernization. It is further reported that the modernized social sector has spawned a rootless fringe of students in Iran and abroad who ride the traditionalist upheaval like parasites, shouting Moslem slogans as a screen for their real demands which are, first, cessation of U.S. support to Iran, and then the overthrow of fascist Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.
