Chapter 19 Summary and Analysis

Yamin took John to an oasis and into one of the mud shacks. The man inside had an American Ph.D., and that John should call him Doc. The man was completely covered. Doc told John that he had been very close to the shah and the shah had trusted him and he had somewhat trusted the Shah. Doc had believed that Iran was moving forward and would bring the rest of the Middle East into a new era. The man's nose had been cut off, Islamic punishment for people that have dishonored society or its leaders. Doc said that the shah was a true satanic and that he was doing much harm to the nation and that the U.S was supporting his endeavors only because Iran was the States' only ally in the Middle East, except Israel, which was actually a liability. Doc said the Flowering Desert Project would ruin Iran and the Middle East and it needed to be stopped. Doc stated that the Shah would not last and that the new government would not be sympathetic to "[John] and [his] kind." Doc got too weak to speak, and his message was already out and clear. Yamin told John that they chose to speak to him (John) because he knew he was a man "between two worlds, a man in the middle."
