Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on December 5, 1907, featuring a letter to Russian diplomat Shāpshāl Seraya Ben Mordechai. Shāpshāl became a personal tutor of the future Mohammad-Ali Shah Qajar. After the shah's coronation, Shāpshāl became his court minister and close adviser and supported the shah in his efforts to crush the Constitutional Revolution. He went on to become an influential Jewish leader and a proponent of the theory that the first Karaite Jews were Khazars who had converted to Judaism in the ninth century CE. The incident from Shāpshāl's earlier career that earned him this acidly polite open letter from Dehkhodā is described by the writer (after considerable digression) in the body of the letter.

Keywords:   Russian diplomats, Shāpshāl Seraya Ben Mordechai, Karaite Jews, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
