In light of the recent uptake in attacks against Reza Pahlavi, this blog entry is the second earnest try to understand the mindset and logic of those attackers who are or claim to be anti-IRR in its totality and not just a faction of it.
These two questions, which have remained unanswered, are from May of 2010:
I’ve had this question on the back of my mind for many years and suspect there are others in the same predicament.
My question is why, that is I can understand IRR doing it, but can’t get my mind around other Iranians who say they despise IRR doing it. Do they know something that is not apparent, like the chances of Pahlavi dynasty resurrecting is so great to warrant them opposing it so vehemently over opposing the murderous Islamist Rapists?
And if that should be the case, would they prefer the extension of life of IRR over the return of Pahlavi as those are the only two choices they seem to allow?
