The Iranian Conspiracy. Rome and the Arabs Before the Rise of Islam: A Brief Introduction.
A number of observers, including the Shah, have written of rumours and allegations that the government of the United Kingdom has secretly supported "mullahs" (Shia clerics) in recent Iranian history, and in particular the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in his successful overthrow of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in the Iranian Revolution of 1979.
Conspiracy theories vary in subject but are ultimately rooted in the idea that there is some singular enemy to blame and that life is not essentially a confusingly chaotic Kafka-esque nightmare of accidents and opportunism. In a simpler time, conspiracy theories were generally harmless and somewhat amusing what if thought experiments. Following the toxic 2016 presidential campaign, though, misinformation and fake news became a huge factor. A key aspect to the theory is jet fuel can’t melt steel beams. Conspiracy theorists believe the towers fell as a result of a controlled demolition and not because they were hit by commercial passenger planes. The civil engineering community has widely rejected these ideas, but that hasn’t stopped speculation that the attacks on September 11th were somehow not what they appeared.
