Darius,

Khaily merci. Thanks for bringing the story of the Pahlavi dynasty here. As you see I do not harbor hatred to the late Shah as others may have. 

One can say anything about how brutal and his Savak. He tried to follow Atta Turks footstep, and push Iran into the 20th century - away from the fundamentalism of Islam. It is very unfortunate he did not succeed. Partially it was his own fault. He was such an arrogant, and out of touch with the common Iranians, after which, it resulted with people there hated him.

I do recall on one video showing him in the 50's or 60's, he was visiting a remote village accompanied by foreign media. One villager was so excited to see him. He run to the Shah and wanted to kiss his hand (or feet). The shah was so disgusted that he literally kicked the guy with his shoes to get rid of him. The shah didn't even bother to look at the guy's face. It was pretty ugly picture to watch.

He should have moved to live in Israel (lol) where he would be safer. 

On the serious note. Omid e khdah, I hope to see, after the fall of the Mullahs in Tehran, the Pahalvi family will be able to return to Tehran and assume a role much the monarchies in Europe, lead the people of Iran under democratic and pluralistic government once again back into its days of glory. Respected and admired by other nations.
