The Jewish Holocaust industry is fond of sounding their shofars every time an aging German or Eastern European low-level concentration camp guard is discovered in South America or a small German or Austrian village. However, these self-appointed genocide avengers remain hypocritically silent when a Jewish prison commander and torturer is discovered, not hiding out in Argentina, but in the swank environs of Orlando, Florida.
Meet Parviz Sabeti, aka Peter Sabeti, a one-time director of Department III of the feared pre-Revolution Iranian secret service, known as the Sazeman-e Attela’at Va Amniat-e Keshvar (Organization for information and protection of the country) or simply, SAVAK. Acting as the Shah of Iran’s eyes and ears in Iran, SAVAK agents received training from the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), British MI-6, and Israel’s Mossad in all forms of intelligence tradecraft, including electronic snooping, counter-intelligence, and – Sabeti’s chief specialty – torture.
As can be seen from his last name, Sabeti is an Iranian “Jew” (“Sabeti” is derived from the Sabbatean crypto Jews of the Ottoman Empire who are also known by the Turkish name “Dönmeh”) who not only served as the chief interrogator for the Shah in Tehran’s infamous circular Ebrat prison, built by Germany’s Nazi government in 1937, but was also on the payroll of the Mossad and CIA.
After a career of arresting and torturing loyalists to former Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadeq, who was ousted in the CIA’s 1953 Operation Ajax coup, in 1978, Sabeti turned his attention to a restive group of Shi’a Muslim clerics who were rising in opposition to the Shah’s increasingly dictatorial regime. The Shah ordered Sabeti to arrest and bring into its prison for “questioning” several hundred followers of Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini, himself exiled in Paris. Among them was Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, now the Leader of the Islamic Revolution. Many detainees were beaten on their feet, faces, and torsos, subjected to pins being forced into the quick of their fingernails and having their nails pulled out, repeatedly dunked into the prison’s central water fountain, hanged upside down and beaten, forced into often heart attack-inducing stress positions, subjected to cigarette and lighter burns, and subjected to electric shocks to their fingers, toes, nipples, and testicles. The machine used for the electric shocks was the “Apollo,” a black metal chair with a black metal hood used for head shocks that was manufactured in and exported to Iran by Israel.
Sabeti fled Iran after the Islamic revolution in 1979 and found sanctuary first in Israel, where he became an officer of Mossad, and eventually, in Florida. Today, Sabeti lives in Orlando, where he owns a building and development company called Paris Enterprises, Inc., which operates out of Post Office Box 536401 in Orlando with a principal address of 401 East Robinson Street, Unit 505, Orlando. According to Florida Secretary of State records, the registered agent for Paris Enterprises is Frank M. Townsend, Esq. of 520 W. Emmett Street, Kissimmee, FL 32741.
Among Paris Enterprises’s officers is Pardis Sabeti, Parviz’s daughter who is also an evolutionary geneticist at Harvard University specializing in the human genome, specifically, the migration of the Ebola virus from an animal genetic reservoir into humans. Another daughter, Parisa Sabeti has served as a director of the William J. Clinton Foundation. According to The New York Times, in 2009, Parisa married Ted Zagat, the vice president for franchise development and strategic partnerships at the Spanish-language Univision Communications and the son of the founders of Zagat’s Survey of restaurants and hotels. The Boca Raton Resort and Club wedding was officiated by Cantor Debbi Ballard. Parisa is also listed as a principal contact, along with her Ebola virus specialist sister, of Paris Enterprises. Nasrin Ghaffarpour, who is also president of Paradise Eighty, Inc. and vice president of Florida Renaissance Corporation is listed as the Vice President of Paris Enterprises with an address of 5391 Vineland Road, Orlando. We will not hold our breath for the Simon Wiesenthal Center or the war criminal trackers of the Department of Justice to pay visits to these addresses.
Update 1x. However, WMR did pay a visit to both corporate addresses and discovered they were private residences.
Parviz Sabeti is a frequent guest on the Voice of America’s Persian television service’s “Ofogh” program.
The case of Sabeti was just one of the items discussed at the recent New Horizons conference in Tehran, at which this editor participated. Neo-con and Zionist organizations and press condemned the conference as a gathering of “anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists” and “holocaust deniers.” It would be interesting to hear whether the Anti-Defamation League and its subservient media have ever called for the US to deport Sabeti to Iran to stand trial for crimes against humanity. Or are such deportations by the United States only reserved for those who commit human rights crimes against Jews? Those shofar calls from the Jewish Holocaust industry every time a 90-something Nazi guard commander is discovered somewhere sound like the shrill blaring of hypocrisy.
