The 74-year-old Norwegian monarch said his thoughts were with the injured and the families of those killed in the attacks on the government complex in downtown Oslo and the Labour Party’s summer youth camp at Utøya inthe Tyri Fjord – “but also with our prime minister, with whom I’ve spoken, and the political Norway.”

King Harald said he also wanted to thank “all those who have helped save lives” during the long day of tragedy.

“Now it’s important that we stand together and support each other, and that we don’t let fear take over,” he said.

Keep your 'Sincerity' for your FB Friends 'Poet'...

by Darius Kadivar on

and before making irrelevant comments maybe you should stop smoking Walt Whitman 'Leaves Of Grass' 


This Post had absolutely no comment in favor or against the Pahlavis ( whom I respect nevertheless) but simply connecting two totally different countries through a common souvenier including a reference to your Idol Shirin Ebadi. 


Now Go and Focus on Your "Sincere' Poetry in your Sunny Florida ! 

Hope it sells well ! 


I Sincerely Hope .....

by R2-D2 on

that one of these days, you develop sufficient self-respect and dignity to stop writing all of these crap about how great the Pahlavis were :)

As you know, everytime that the Shah went under pressure, he Fled our Beloved Iran -

The first time, the British and the Americans bailed him out (1953) - And, the second time, in 1979, there was no one to do that :)

As you know, on the second occasion, 1979, after he Fled Iran, many of his Generals were one by one arrested, and subsequently executed :)

P.S. In your blogs please remind your readers on the Shah's bravery - Like I said, a Total Coward through and through :) !

P.S. I hope you are well compensated for your efforts :)
