He is the King and he has a

by alimostofi on

He is the King and he has a mandate to act in the name of Iran. His mandate is that he does not nterfere in politics. However he has to lead the country if its culture is threatened. The culture was threatened when democracy was abused and the Hezbollah changed the name of Iran flag and anthem and many other things.

he makes a lot of sense

by seannewyork on

the more i listen to him and read about him the more i realize how wrong i was about him and stupid i was for listening to all the propoganda instead of listening to what he actually says.

i have not heard the concepts he talks about stated by anyone else.

HFB: "no political leader is born into office"

by Bavafa on

How dare you suggest that??? 

Now brace yourself!

"Born into Office":

by Hafez for Beginners on

"Born into Office": 

The irony is - if I were a King's son wanting to change, I'd say: "Don't listen to me, "change" means listening to those who have done something rather than those who were born to someone." 

No hard feelings with the man personally. But living in America for 30 years - where no political leader is born into office, or campaigns for having been the son of someone born into office,  it surprises me that the concept hasn't rubbed off more on the Iranian-American community.

You haters with your Viagra-induced hard ons for RP are growing (no pun intended) more desperate and pathetic by the day.  RP has admitted his father's regime's shortcomings, its abuses and has put a number, for the first time I might add (just view Parazit's interview) on his family's wealth when they left Iran.  So, leave your oghdeh's behind and view him as his own man and listen to his message.  Unless you have something worthwhile to say and by some miraculous act of nature you find a pair of balls bigger than his, STFU.  You people sound as played out as the Islamic Republic. 


Well Done and well articulated.

I wish for you to be triumphant.

And i look forward to the day Freedom returns to Iran and it's economy is among the top 4 in the world. 


He may be an average guy with more then average $$$

by Bavafa on

But I am really hoping for some one with above average intelligent, wisdom, charisma to lead Iranians. If he is average then why he and not rtayebi1, Nader Vanaki or Ali jaan?



History Lessons

by Sepidar on

It is one thing to say the right things but it is another to do the right things. If I am not mistaking about the book's name: "Koshteh shodegan bar sare Ghodrat" by Masoud Behnood analyzes just that. I dont think Reza Pahlavi should be judged on what his father or grand father did, but his honest opinion about the events during the Pahlavi regime would be a good start for him to let people to get to know him a little better if he wants to be taken seriously.


pendar nick

by rtayebi1 on

U r right. This time we should be careful. There is No problem with  asking questions. So far he is the best candidate for me 

Ali P.

Another average guy

by Ali P. on

Honestly, I am with rtayebi1 .

Nader Vanaki

شما به بزرگی خودت ببخشش پندار نیک

Nader Vanaki

و حالا فرض کن رقم مالیاتی که پرداخته رو هم فهمیدی.  خیلی مسائل سی و دو سال گذشته رو برات حل می کنه؟  یا اینکه اعلامیه کارمندان بانک مرکزی تازه بدستت رسیده؟


Me too...

by پندارنیک on

...but I'll hold on to my tears of joy, until he follows a well-practiced American tradition for those who seek public office by disclosing his family's tax return for 2010.

I'm sure his public denunciation of his father's wrongs/constitutional violations and the Pahlavis corruption would send some shivers down my spine too.

Nader Vanaki

To: rtayebi1

by Nader Vanaki on

I agree with you 100%.  He has a clear understanding and articulates things like a seasoned Iranian.


I am

by rtayebi1 on

an average Iranian, with an average intellect, with an average interest in politics. I am starting to like this guy. He is saying the right things
