Only choice

For any democratic future in Iran, she is the only choice around whom ALL Iranians would and could rally; be they religious minorities, ethnic tribes, democrats, conservatives, liberals, leftists or fundamentalists. Secondly, it is about time we put a woman in charge for a while.


Proper dignity

Her Majesty has maintained the proper dignity of a queen in exile. Her presence at the funeral of King Hussain [of Jordan] showed how much she must have suffered from years of exile, particularly while His Imperial Majesty [Mohammad Reza Shah] was ill and could do nothing to stop the terror going on in his country.
