	Whaddaya mean `crypto'?  The Shah had a HUGE map, made out of 
precious metals and gems(?) showing his `Greater Iran' (or Iranistan).  
It was no secret.

	As for Race and Islam; well, Jesus preached love, but fascists do
go to church...  Mahomet preached brotherhood and the mullahs crush
workers' councils.

	You haven't convinced _me_.
