Never claimed to be more than Citizen Pahlavi

This is in response to your editorial ["Citizen Pahlavi"]. Reza Pahlavi never claimed to be more than Citizen Pahlavi. He has always stated his view, as a responsible citizen. He has never proposed different; his goal is for people to decide, even if they decide against his inherited monarchy.

Reza Pahlavi has always clearly stipulated -- as in his recent conference in National Press Club in Washington ["Democratic republic, or..."] -- that the monarchy is 3,000 years old, but he won't insist on it .

He has always mentioned that he is not living in a dream world and things have changed. It will be wise to give him the credi. He has always maintained a stable, honest, continuous support for the people of Iran while others have been jumping from one mandate to another.

This young man sounds like a democrat because he is willing to sacrifice the monarchy and give the people of Iran a chance to built their future. Otherwise, it would not be difficult for him to declare leadership and gain the power back.

Beyond that, it's up to the people to decide. He has always considered it an honor to call himself a free man and simple citizen of Iran to serve his country.

Please set the record straight.
