On February 5th, Prince Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah of Iran, presented his new book of interviews taken by the French journalist Michel Taubmann. The title ‘Iran: The Deciding Hour’ describes the political position of Iran at the crossroads.
In order to solve the Iranian crisis, Reza Pahlavi appeals to the international community and especially to Europe. Between the option of the never ending negotiations and a military attack he prescribes a third option, namely the support of the Iranian democratic movement and a dialogue with the Iranian people.
The son of the late Shah exposes his vision of a different Iran which is democratic, secular and integrated in the international community. This includes a project to accomplish a society capable of answering to the aspirations of the Iranian people, the foundation of a democratic parliamentary regime in which the constitution is founded on the universal principles of human rights, the establishment of a nation guaranteeing the liberty of all, a national reconciliation like the model of South Africa, and finally the separation of state and religion.
Prince Reza Pahlavi proposes a democratic process that will lead to a new constitution with which the Iranian people can choose their form of new regime by referendum (parliamentary monarchy or a parliamentary republic).
In order to solve the Iranian crisis, Prince Reza Pahlavi launches an appeal to the international community and especially to Europe.
Between the option of the never ending negotiations of which only the Islamic Republic profits and a military option, that will only have dramatic consequences for the region and the world, there is a third option, less costly and more legitimate: the support of the Iranian democratic forces and not a dialogue with the mullah regime, but with the Iranian people.
