The Pahlevi Dynasty, which was the ruling family of Iran before the revolution, is in favor of the general westernization of the country, which would take away from Islamic ideals. The general public does not agree with this decision. The Pahlevi Dynasty, in the time of the Revolution, consisted of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlevi, commonly reffered to as "The Shah".
The Shah's plans for the westernization of Iran finally pass through; the process begins and i followed through throughout the 1960's. Westernization includes the improvement of transportation, communication, and industrialization, including the increased production of oil and roads.
The Shah becomes fed up with so-called "revolutionaries", and begins to execute them. Many of these people were just protestors that were gathering in the big cities, and the Shah gave an order for his military forces to shoot into the crowd, killing many of the protestors. This event was known as Black Friday.
Finally fed up with the westernization of Iran, the oil workers inside the country go on strike, refusing to work for a tyrannical government.
The Shah, despite his earlier actions, says that he understands the revolution, and is even in favor of it. He does this at a last grab for support, as there is a very slim number of people in the country that still think the Shah should be the leader of Iran.
