Mr. Pahlavi , What Next

Ali Rezaie
by Ali Rezaie

It is almost 30 years since the revolution!IRI is well and truly embeded in Iran.IRI can not be shaken like the regieme was back in 1979.

IRI feels secure enough and bold enough to challenge/play with USA in the Persia Golf!

In the absence of any credible opposition and/or alternative , should the nation go with IRI and try and change from within?

What are our options?

Any American strike on our land can NOT be justified by saltanat talabs / nationalist movements ( I will not include the mojahedin fergheh , since they sold out to the enemy years ago!! ).

What Next?





What are you afraid of, Mr Rezaie?

by monarchist (not verified) on

Suppose RP returned to Iran and the nation overwhelmingly elected to restore the monarchy, albeit democratically. What is your problem with that? Are you anti-Pahlavi or anti-monarchy , or both?

Anything but saltanat!

As usual, these miserable Shahis are contaminating this site with their stinky poisonous language. No wonder, their corrupt shahanshahi regime also decayed from within.

What then? Do you have aladin's Genie or magic lamp? Let him borrow it then, So you and people like you feel very kosher about it............

I hope he is out there to get help.


The late shah is the most

by shah-doost (not verified) on

The late shah is the most admired and loved person in Iran today.
Those who were against him have tears in eyes when remembering
him and the young generation is in favor of a monarchy. Once Akhoondi regime falls, Reza will be welcomed with 10 million people
carrying his car over their hands until Niavaran Palace.

Why ask Reza Pahlavi

by Ali Rezaie on

I know Reza Pahlavi conducted a tour of Europe last Nov-Dec , canvassing support from rich Iranians.

I do not know if Reza Pahlavi had a specific agenda with regards to any possible action/s either from within Iran and/or with the help of USA.

I am not sure how the new genreration of post revolution youth n Iran will take to manoarchy, even though on the face of it , Reza Pahlavi does not seem to be advocating such system.

I do recall Khomeini came to power with the same promise!


pahlavi is vatan foroosh.

by Kadivar is moron (not verified) on

Dariush whats the point of SAYING he is against it, when his ACTIONS indicate he has worked with CIA etc. He is associated with such right-wing think tanks such as National Enterprise Institute (Michael Leeden) which is very pro-war against Iran. Give us a break, actios speak louder than words.

He has no problem using CIA help to re-institute a client state such as his fathers. thats the bottom line. whether its through a military invasion or a so called color revolution (ex. orange ukraine)

p.s. reason pahlavi resides near his masters in washington dc lol


The IRI has been in power

by sickofit (not verified) on

The IRI has been in power for the past 30 years and will remain in power for many years to come as long as our alternatives are such dysfunctional opposition "leaders" as Reza Pahlavi, and the attitude of the opposition remains like the sample we see here on this site. We cannot have a civilized discussion even on a cartoon that someone post here let alone agreeing on the future of a country. The future of Iran will be determined by those who are living and struggling inside Iran and not by the irrelevant opposition barking from the comfort and security of the western countries.

I really like to know more about you, your past and present. I have seen lots of articles that you have contributed to this site, some very interesting indeed.
I hope you don't find me nosy.


Fallacious premise

by Fred (not verified) on

Since your premise that “IRI is well and truly embedded (sic) in Iran” is fallacious, any attempt to respond to the question based on it would be sheer folly.


The answer is very simple ...!?

by Reza Pahlavi's Spokesperson (not verified) on

Back during the great Islamic An-Gholaab of 1979, 30 odd Million Iranians knowingly and willingly demanded change and rallied behind Imam Khomeini and were hell bent to obtain freedom and free oil delivered to their home at no cost!? Well, Imam Khomeini heard the Iranians call and delivered it to them but not quite the way Iranians had anticipated and imagined!? Imam Khomeini delivered it to the Iranians kinda like the toothless dude in the movie "Deliverance" delivered it to the fat guy, without vaseline!?

My advice to the Iranian people is squeal like a pig!?!

Precision military strike is the solution

by mahmoud ghaffari (not verified) on

I happen to agree, and I am not part of the Mojahedeen Khlag, that a precision military strike on nuclear targets and the assets of the regime strognmen, is the catalyst needed to ensure that the Persians would rise from the inside. We can not sit back and expect the good people of Persia single handedly over throw this regime. The same formula that worked in 1979 would not work again. Every single democratic movement of the last 30 years has had some formula of armed resistance or armed aid from the outside. If the US starts, and I want to make this clear, a precise stratgeic attack on economic targets and not civilian centers, the regime would crumble and the people can do the rest. This is the spark we need. As for who will take over, my vote is let's give Reza Pahlavi a chance. He is the only figure I see available on an international scale that has any relevance. For sure we don't want the Mojahadeen any where near Persia anymore. They are no better than the Islamic goons we would be replacing.

Next Shah: Rafsanjani or Khatami ?

by Darius Kadivar on


Hmm Just wondering who will be the next guy we are to look up to as the next Islamic Gorbaatchev ? I wonder if Khatami Or Rafsanjani will have something new to say in the months to come. Kind of funny that it looks like we are going to repeat the same masochistic mistake with the same naive enthusiasm but I guess we have to vote for them again just for the sake of future dissapointments. How Come We Iranians have this talent of repeating the same formula even when it never works ? Well I guess Khatami or Rafsanjani will certainly be leading Iran towards more failed promises and we will go for their lies as usual. But well I guess I am just another stupid guy in exile ... N'est ce Pas ?

Power shifts behind the throne

You've got Strange Conclusions about Shahi's ? ;0)

by Darius Kadivar on

Correct me if I read wrong ? But its not the first time I read that Reza Pahlavi is against any form of military Strike on Iran. But you are probably right I am blind and stupid.




Shah's Exiled Son: Don't
Attack Iran
PRAGUE -- Reza Pahlavi, the exiled son of the last shah
of Iran, suggests taking Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's threat to annihilate Israel very
seriously. However, he suggests refraining from military action against his

That's not what scares the regime there," he explains. "What
scares it are the opponents from within, who should be strengthened. An attack
from outside could give this regime carte blanche to do anything, and even lead
to a nationalist awakening that would bring into its camp people who do not
belong to it now."

Pahlavi spoke with Haaretz at a gathering in Prague of
dissidents from 17 countries that was sponsored by the Adelson Institute for
Strategic Studies at the Shalem Center. For the past 19 years he has lived in
Washington, where he married a woman of Iranian descent and fathered three
daughters. He operates from the exile he entered at age 19 like a bench player
who practices determinedly for the moment when he is called to step back onto
the court. Two years ago he even went on a hunger strike to demand the release
of political prisoners, even though he cannot escape the fact that during his
father's reign there were many political prisoners in Iran.

"I am not
saying there were no mistakes made under the previous regime," he says. "But you
have to remember the context of that time. Those were the days of the Cold War,
and there was in Iran a sense that the Soviet Union wanted to turn us into its
satellite. I can understand why the public went along with the revolution, but I
also know that no one wished for the tragic result of today."

exiles, who come from polar opposite groups, have a complicated attitude toward
the Shah's son, and their interests truly overlap only in the desire to
overthrow the current regime.

Asked whether he supports a return of the
monarchy, Pahlavi replies diplomatically. "The people will decide," he says.
"One of the options is indeed a parliamentary monarchy. That suits the character
of our people. In heterogeneous societies, the monarchy is a symbol of

Pahlavi says he has been feeling encouraged lately, especially
following the recent statements on Iran by France's new president.

"It is
possible that the divide-and-conquer system that sabotages the efforts to
eradicate such regimes is now being replaced by greater unity," he says
hopefully. "We have in Iran now an inquisition like the one they had in Europe
and that was followed by the Renaissance. We are not far from that. Iran needs a
further push, additional pressure on the regime by means of sanctions that hurt
the system without hurting its citizens.... The Iranians must become convinced
that the world is serious enough not to abandon them along the

Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Shah's son is accorded a
wary respect. He wasn't an original invitee to the conference, which was
organized by Natan Sharansky, Vaclav Havel and former Spanish Prime Minister
Jose Maria Aznar, and whose high point was an appearance by George Bush en route
to the G-8 meeting. With so many conflicting interests among the regimes the
human rights crusaders hailed from including Egypt, Sudan, Russia, Saudi Arabia
and others it was hard to spot the unifying political interest, aside from the
participants' subjective feeling that they represent absolute good opposing the
absolute evil in the world. At times, the uniting factor was anger at Bush, like
that which linked Garry Kasparov, a vehement Putin opponent, and Saad al-Din
Ibrahim, a noted freedom fighter from Egypt and longtime opponent of Mubarak's.
For years they have felt that Bush betrayed them along the way, based on
erroneous considerations, and they got a chance to tell him so during a brief
meeting with the U.S. president in Prague.



wrong guy to ask. He has no

by Anonymous1 (not verified) on

wrong guy to ask.
He has no clue. He is a guy whose father failed and scaped. he grew up with rich kids and has no idea about life of the common people.
So he is just like any of the escapees. ignore him and let him have his normal life as an immigrant in the west.
don't make him bigger than he is.
after all he inherited 16 billion dollars that his father took out over years based on 60 minutes on CBS.
