The Very First President of the Islamic Republic, Abdolhassan Banisadre is asked about the risks and conditions of seeing Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi the son of the Iran’s Last Monarch Mohamed Reza Shah Pahlavi regain power.
After a lengthy and in my humble opinion rather complicated metaphoric explanation the former President concludes that Iranians did not eat Baghali ( referring to a form of beans used in Rice) for the past 32 years only to end up with the prospect of replacing the current Spiritual Leader Ali Khamenei with Reza Pahlavi ( referring to him without his inherited Royal title of Shahzadeh) or MKO leader Massoud Rajavi ( to whom the former president’s daughter was once married before divorcing her in favor of Maryam Rajavi the current Pre Selected President of the MKO – the People’s Mujahedin Khalgh).

Description: Part of a TV debate in 1980 on anti-revolutionary elements in Iran, between Mohsen Rezaei, then head of revolutionary Guards and Banisadr, then president of Iran who fled the country after his failure against Rezaei and his confederates.
