Monarchy is only solution

by siavash1000 on

Our history has been intimated with monarchy and kingdom for over 5000 years. Shah has been a symbol of unity, integrity and strengh of our nation throughout history. Half breed arab bastards so called "sayyid" (like Sayyid Ali Khamanie)  imposed barbaric laws of lizard eater arabs to our nation for last 31 years. Barbaric laws that belong to nomad tribes of Arabs in Arabian Peninsula over 1400 years ago. The savage laws such as forceful hejab,  lashing people in public like an animal or stonning people to death.  31 years suffering is enough. Let's work together and re-establish monarchy as it was the wish of our ancestors for thousands years.

Payandeh our Aryan land IRAN.

Long live Reza Pahlavi, the legitimate king of Iran.  


damesh garm.....

by shushtari on

those idiots in 79 were drinking scotch and cursing the shah- the same person who had given them those freedoms-are eating their words and beating their heads on how stupid they were....

stupid enough to let a bunch of no good vulture akhoonds take over their country and ruin it....

his father had his faults, like all of us, but I wouldn't give one of his hairs for all the lowlife mullahs on earth-

sargooz, if you want puggy, look no further than firouzabadi, AKA gorohban garcia- who is supposed to be running iran's defence!



The problem we have is that

by alimostofi on

The problem we have is that it has taken HIM thirty years to understand non-violent resistance but has yet to understand non-violent provocation. You need both.

Seems gained a bit, or two...

I don't want to sound cute or funny when I raise my question about his health. 

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

I like his view and the man who has great experience in international arena. he could lead or as he says he could be great spoke person in other word he could drive the mission with support of all other opposition with being non partisan he could be the saint person in the room among all opposition and sharing same agenda is human right and political freedom and two pillar of unification of all opposition groups. If we could create the assembly that could gather all parties in one room to combine the ideas and forces we could establish great movement and toppling IRI would be sooner than some could imagine. he is frustrated with explaining himself for others and nobody should blame his frustration because he is really trying every angle to make united front that could galvanize the nation for great revelation in our history not by support of American or British and if we could use our nationalist platform we do not need any help from other countries and if we bring our love to our country on the table we could merge all Iranian for freedom of our nation and the country, I Belief REZA PAHLAVI could be great force to lead our nation and to push our goal to freedom of our  people and the country. All we need to be united.

Beevafa you messed up again buddy, its not the lack of sleep the great leaders of IRI should be worried about, but the ropes and Chenaar Trees. Don't you remember what happened to Sheikh Fazlolah Nouri the grand Akhound of Iran after the constitutional revolution of 1906? he was swinging from a tree like a lantern, history have funny way of repeating it self. ;o)

You're right, I do maintain positions of certain policy advocacy that are currently in the minority. And here's the deal: I admit they are in the minority. But my advocacy is contained within the political order and system.

You anti-Iran people don't admit your views are in the minority for the country you advocate for and you are seditious.

These are big differences that you cannot admit to yourselves due to the fact that you operate on the basis of emotion.

Simorgh, are you a UK citizen? If so, I suggest you limit your advocacy  to your adopted country, and if you feel so inclined, vote in Iranian presidential elections. Beyond that, you're simply blowing out hot air, just like the pudgy buffoon in these video clips.



by Simorgh5555 on

You can take the flag of the Islamic Republic and wipe your rear end with it as far as I am concenred. You are not American. Not Iranian. Just a confused hybird who tried to hard to be American and an Iranian at the time. All the while your a supporter of terror and anti-American to the core. The majority of Americans do not share your views on the Islamic Repulblic or Israel by which they wholeheartedly hate former and support the latter. How does it feel to be a 'radical' - as you put it?

Appropriate juxtaposing of a pudgy, middle-aged nothing-for-life and an anachronistic Lion-Puss flag.

It's no wonder Islamic Republic of Iran's ruling elites don't lose any sleep at night. They got nothing to worry about with losers like this.


Shahzadeh is a compelling

by Simorgh5555 on

Shahzadeh is a compelling speaker. He really is the best opposition figure available and it is imperative that he plays a decisive part in the liberation of Iran. Iran needs his talent. This is not to say that  I agree with everything he says. With respect there is a slight contradiction in his approach to the Islamic Republic. On the one hand he says that Western governments underestimate how cruel the Islamic Republic is (in reference to Hilary Clinton actively pursuing Motaki) but at the same time he opposes the use of violence  in order to remove them. With respect, you cannot have it both ways. Passive resistance and diplomacy have completely failed to deter the regime's behaviour and the human rights situation has become progressively worse.

Despite his honesty and sincerity he still cannot bring himself to accept that the only language this regime understands is violence. Or perhaps deep down he knows this is the only way this regime can be toppled but does not have the courage to look the interviewer in the eye and say it. He must work with governments and support the establishment of a modern and fully resourced Iranian liberation army. If he cannot suppoort that then he must support the right of Iranians to bear arms and ask the US government to provide material assistance for Iranians to carry this out.


Good interview with the Shahanshah of Iran

by Aryana-Vaeja on

Yes, HIM Reza Pahlavi II is ready now to return the Farr to Iran and reestablish the only institution and form of government which has ever worked for the motherland: monarchy.

Now, why continue to refer to him as Crown Prince when he really is the legitimate monarch of Iran (in exile)?

by Fred on

It is a shame the dimwits managing the Persian Service of the VOA have chosen to take Farhoodi off the air. He is one of the very few serious journalists among the army of partisan “journalist” wannabes that populate the VOA Persian.

This interview is a good example of his professionalism.

BTW, Prince Reza Pahlavi has matured into a well seasoned statesman.
