Thank you for your post. Let me say however, and you may disagreee with this but my support of Reza Pahlavi is conditional and because he is still one of the best chances for revival of the monarchy. I support him because he embodies the insitution which I support and not necessasrily him as a person. His nonsensical approach to civil disobedience; his wearing the silly green wrist bands trying to buy street cred with Iranian revolutinaries and even naming his children with Arabic names is extremely bad taste. 

Let me stress the following. The Iranian monarchy is different from the the British monarchy because there is no direct lineage linking the royal households through history.

The uniqueness of the Iranian monarchy is that theoretically anyone possssed with inordinate courage and leadership and done something extraordinary in the service of Iran is worthy of becoming the Shah. Its not about who your family is. Being cultured because you are a connoisseur of wines and dine on foie gras and steak tartare does not make you a Shah. Eating the breast of peacock cooked at Maxim in Paris does not make you worthy of being a Shah.

A Shah is a commoner like Reza Shah who united Iran and stopped its disintegration by brute force. It is what you do for Iran which counts but this is lost on Eurocentrics such as Darius who believe that the Shah is a sovereign almost by divine right and we have to follow his word without question. 

I think Reza Pahlavi should have stepped down a long time ago and given the role of Shah to his late brother.

Simorgh5555 and Siavash300 Well said both of you

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

Couldn't add to your comments. They are insightful and truthful.

I will be hanging out with dozens of relatives from iran for a vacation soon and they tell me that at least more than half the country agrees with your views.

I personally have always said that the future a secular autocratic monarchy will produce for Iranians, is what most Iranians want.

Monarchy has more supporters now than ever before, but that means little if the USA goes ahead and arms tens of thousands of MEK's in iraq and bombs Iran ito submission.  The USA says it will kill 300,000, but the truth is more like 3,000,000 followed by a new tyranny.

The least bloodshed would come by usa supporting the Shah and having him organize, but an outcome that would give Iranians Freedom and independence which is of little use to the powers that know what the game is.  


Siavash300

"Shallolahis" is Oxymoron

by Siavash300 on

The word consist of 2 paradox terms that doesn't go together. It is like saying snowy hot summer. Either is it snowy and cold or it is summer and hot. These 2 doesn't go together.  

Behind word SHAH,  there is over 5000 years Iran history, Great civilalization.

Behind word Allah, there is a nomad, bare feet desert arab tribe.

A challenge

by Simorgh5555 on

Which monarchy in the world has a Brigadere General from an austere background with no ties to nobility and aristocracy and a limited education has been able to ascend the throne? Reza Shah was not brought up with a silver spoon in his mouth. He wasn't a cultured fellow or trained in chivalry and ettiquette. He did not take elocution lessons or speak foeeign languages. He was not accustomed to fine dining or occupied himself with past time of the aristocrats. He was a simpleton by nature who had no desire to be a 'monarch'. He did not even care much for this instution and even tried to abolish it.

What made Reza Shah worthy of the throne?

"Only a prince ambitious for renown 

Deserves to reign and to possess the crown;

And then I'm old, while he is young and strong-

I can't fight lions' claws, I've lived too long.

Let him display the prowess, let us see

His youth and health enjoy their victory" 

From the Shahnameh, translated by Dick Davis

The introduction to this

by Simorgh5555 on

The introduction to this blog reads that 'Shahollahis do not represnlent the Monarchist cause'. That is true but then again the Monarchist cause does not belong to Reza Pahlavi alone. He has no more right to occupy the throne than a Qajar king. Despite what Darius Kadivar wants you to believe the Iranian monarchy has never been modelled or functioned the same as the European Constitutional Monarchies . To draw parallels between the Peacock throne of the Pahlavis and the Queen of Great Britain is patently ludicrous. There are no protocols or unwritten rules dictating who becomes Shah. The Iranian monarchy has never been an heirloom entitling a prince to take possession of the throne because his father was ruler. In the three thousand years of recorded history dynasties have come and gone. Some of them have been violently overthrown based on the simple.formula: When the guy doing the job isn't up to the task you kick him in the backside and off he goes packing. Look at Darius 1 of Persia l, Nader Shah Afshar who committed infanticide to wipe out all the Safavids and finally Reza Shah who overthrew the Qajar dynasty and wanted to establish a republic. Was Reza Shah a tratior or the saviour of Iran? 

What would have happened if Reza Kahn remained a simple footsoldier and followed orders without question? Iran as we know it would have been fragmented into small chiefdoms.

What stopped Iran from being a republic? The Ulema. Yes, that's right. The Mullahs who were scared of a republic a la Ataturk. 

If Mr Pahlavi, as he likes to be called, cant do the job then it is high time he moved on.
Darius can do all the window dressing he liked but at the end of the day the Shah's reign remained inherrently an autocracy. Not that this is a bad thing but it is what Mohammed Reza Pahlavi also believed in. " I will act like the King of Sweden when my people attain the level of civility of the people of Sweden'. The Shah's reforms were sincere but it is udeniable a lot of it was pushed through by Kennedy, LBJ and Carter.
Watching Darius reinvent or revise history is like watching a sanitised hollywood film set in history where no one smoked and no one was bigoted or racist.
Saeed Sakui is at least honest and what he aks for in a more robust and even autocratic Shah is not out o character with the history of the Shah's rule in Iran and the three thousand years precedent.
Its tim for Reza Pahlavi to stop apologising for the monarch cause (there has been enough of introspective self.criticism) and take his position as the Shah with pride. If he doesn't then he will become an irrelevance. The American support for the MEK is now indicative of his increasingly diminished influence in the field of Iranian politics. As my champion Fouladvand said, and so did Shahnameh, the throne belongs to the person who can show courage.

Looks like we've reached an impasse so I went back to slogans used at times of impasse!

My 50/50 offer stands!  You can design the bottle and I'll get the scent to work like Pahlavi: scent of an empire!

Come on Darius jaan, I piss on this "jomhori" Islami!

by Esfand Aashena on

Do we really have to argue about whether this Jomhori is Jomhori?  When you have Velayat Faghih having ultimate power over everything, it's not a Jomhori.

A Jomhori is when the elected leader is the commander in chief, the leader of the country with all the powers.

Would I be called Jomhori-allahi?!

by Esfand Aashena on

Well the reason they call them Hezbollahi and Shahollahi is because we have/had both examples in power.  Jomhori people have yet not had any power.

If they become to power and screw up to the magnitude of Shah and Hezbollah and their supporters support them like Hezbollahi and Shahollahis then yes we could be called jomhorioallahis!

Far be it from me telling Prince Chubby what to do or say.  I wrote him once and he never wrote me back!  What do you say, should we partner and make a Pahlavi cologne or perfume?!  We can split it right down the middle, 50/50!  We'll become millionaires and can buy i.com and make JJJ work for us and under our rules!

You're a scholar and gentleman for bringing his daily tweets here so we know but I suspect at times you have been more Catholic than Pope!  And so have others so in essence he is dishing his own base!
