The republican prince
Video clips: Interview with Amir Abbas Fakhravar

July 17, 2006

On the last day of the hunger strike in New York with Akbar Ganji Sunday, someone pointed out Amir Abbas Fakhravar. I had read differing views on his effort to overthrow the Islamic Republic [see: "Hope" and "Keep looking"]. I decided to interview him and hear his own words.

Fakhravar: Akbar Ganji and I were friends as fellow journalists and later prison mates. He is opposed to talking to monarchists. I am not a monarchist; I want Iran to be a republic. But if we are democrats we should be inclusive >>> Watch

Fakhravar: I am not in favor of war against Iran... They call Richard Perle the Prince of Darkness, but I see a different person and consider him a very good friend ... We are influencing American officials; not the other way around >>> Watch


Fakhravar: The Islamic Republic must go... I want to create a better, more beautiful and loving life with American help... >>> Watch
