Iranian Revolution 1979 !


The Comintern (SH) published this collection of texts on occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the Victory of the Revolution in Iran.

The Comintern (SH) greets all Iranian comrades !!

This is our contribution of proletarian internationalism in order to encourage our Iranian comrades to translate the texts of comrade Enver Hoxha into Farsi language.

The translated text in Farsi language will create better conditions for the foundation of the Iranian Section of the Comintern (SH).

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the guide-line for the transformation of the democratic revolution into the socialist revolution !

Down with the Islamic Republic ! Long live the socialist Republic !

Long live the dictatorship of the Iranian proletariat !

Long live the socialist Iran in a socialist world !

Long live the socialist world revolution !




Critical statement of the Comintern (SH ) to our former Iranian brother party - Toufan
June 21, 2010

Comrade Enver Hoxha has taught the Marxist -Leninist Communists and upright revolutionaries in Iran :

"These comrades must fight at the forefront of the revolution. They must prove themselves to be neither sectarians nor opportunists. " (Enver Hoxha )

Today, we are of the opinion that TOUFAN did not earnestly follow the advice of comrade Enver Hoxha earnestly in the last decades. In the countrary, they becamemore and moreopportunists and traitors of comrade Enver Hoxha. This is very sad, because TOUFAN was once our brother party.

Considering the status of Toufan in all the past years, we Stalinist-Hoxhaists ask ourselves: What happened with TOUFAN, with our former brother party in the Iran ? Does the Iranian proletariat need a new Bolshevik vanguard in order to lead the revolution to the victory ?

Well, TOUFAN drew its demarcation line away from comrade Enver Hoxha and Socialist Albania. TOUFAN turned away from the Marxist-Leninist World Movement - led by comrade Enver Hoxha.

Thus, TOUFAN became an opportunistic organization which we do not support any longer.

Only an Iranian Section of the Comintern (SH) can lead the Iranian proletariat as a strong detachment of the revolutionary world-proletarian army in order to destroy world imperialism in general and to destroy the Islamic Republic of Iran in particular; in order to build up a socialist Iranian Republic in a socialist world.

The Iranian revolution can only be victorious if it is based and guided by the lessons of the 5 Classsics iof Marxism-Leninism - Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Enver Hoxha.


TOUFAN could only fulfill its revolutionary tasks of leading the proletariat and the peasants in the revolution for the seizure of political power and establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat ....

... if Toufan itself turns back to the old glorious revolutionary party-tradition at the time of Enver Hoxha , when we (not yet split ) have fought shoulder to shoulder in the Marxist- Leninist World Movement of Comrade Enver Hoxha , thus fighting in the spirit of our great revolutionary times in the 70s !

... if Toufan adheres to the ideals of communism, for which Toufan has sacrified its martyrs.

... if Toufan finally bases itself on an ideologically-politically well-established Stalinist- Hoxhaist line with the aim to struggle for attracting the best revolutionary proletarians of Iran, for forging the proletarian vanguard of Iran.

... if Toufan provides absolute loyalty to the classics Stalin and Enver Hoxha. This was often a shaky point throughout the party's history. There was permanently influence and pressure of petty- bourgeois party intelligence. Fact is: The more Toufan turned away from Enver Hoxha , the nearer Toufan sank into the swamp of opportunism.

... if Toufan is freed from neo -revisionist ballast - accumulated for many years which paralyzed the party. Toufan is acutely threatened by decay - namely in a revolutionary situationin its own country !

... if Toufan is firmly anchored in the proletariat through active participation in the class struggle, if it constantly and systematically educates new proletarian cadres and if it the party seriously exercises in proletarian discipline, if it builds up a strong illegal apparatus, if it Bolshevizes its organisation by purifying consistently and relentlessly from opportunistic elements !

... if Toufan takes the lead of the Iranian revolution. If it constantly engages in agitation and propaganda for communism in a manner wich is clear and understandable to the revolutionary masses and if Toufan meets the most pressing needs of the revolutionary masses exactly to the point.

... for short:

if Toufan recognizes comrade Enver Hoxha as the 5th Classic of Marxism- Leninism .

Otherwise Toufan is sinking deeper and deeper into the swamp of opportunism, is overrun by the Revolution and loosing all its former credits that it achieved in the 70s and beginning 80s.

Without recognition of Comrade Enver Hoxha as the 5th Classic of Marxism- Leninism , there will be no admission of being affiliated as the Iranian Section of the Communist International (Stalinist - Hoxhaists ) .

This advice of the Comintern [SH] was submitted to Toufan officially on 21 June 2010 - until today we did not receive a response fron Toufan .

Toufan has turned away from Comrade Enver Hoxha . We condemn this historical turn of this party.

But at those times , at the time of the Iranian revolution in 1979 - Toufan was our brother party. Toufan supported socialism in Albania. Toufan supported the Marxist- Leninist world movement of comrade Enver Hoxha. Toufan stood on the correct ground of Marxism- Leninism. The Marxist-Leninists of the whole world were fighting together with the Iranian comrades side by side . We will never forget and always cherish this great history of TOUFAN.

Despite our criticism of today, we defend our common struggle of that time and - of course - publish documents of the times when TOUFAN was member of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement - guided by the Party of Labour of Albania with comrade Enver Hoxha at the head.
