Islam under the monarchy was what we now call “Eslaameh Shahanshahi” which basically was “Islam very-light” with nobody forced to obey any of the sharia laws nor tenets.
That wold be accetable anywhere but not by the Jihadi Islam of Obama and his supporters.

Eslaameh Shahanshahi roughly translates as "monarchic or monarchical Islam" - can't think of a more appropriate translation at the moment. I appreciate it was "Islam lite". Though, point remains that there is no such Islam even if accepted by the average Ali, Hossein, Reza, Zahra & Dariush in Iran because they liked their social freedoms under the Shah. Hence, leading the ordinary Iranian to think that Eslaameh Shahanshahi is the norm. It isn't/wasn't. Obviously many others (not just Jihadis, but religious moslem Iranian families didn't accept that newly invented Islam. It was untenable & a misrepresentation of Islam, itself.
