He may Not be a shah for You because you simply don't believe in the Monarchy or don't like the whole concept of the monarchy in general ...

He is to others ...

That's your Right but it is also the right of those who believe in the monarchy and RP 2 as their sovereign to express their liking and loyalty too ...

I happen to see him not as a Crown Prince but for what he took Oath for as King apparent on October 31st, 1980, at Cairo's Koubeh Palace upon his 20th birthday.

But Royals remain royals even if no more in power unless beheaded. So he is not a former Shahzadeh, he is a Shahzadeh that is born to a King and Queen.

Otherwise might as well call Prince William and Harry without their titles of Prince given that their father Prince Charles is not yet King ...

Even former Presidents ousted after an election keep their titles be it President Clinton or Carter or in France Chirac or Giscard D'Estaing ...

So don't see why journalists don't call these eminent public figures by the term "Former" too ? ... 

So the Correct term to address him is at Best Shahzadeh Reza Pahlavi.

He himself does not wish to impose that title ( which does not mean he rejects that title ) as long as the nation at large has not made up it's mind on this central question: What is best for Iran as an accountable system of government with Checks and Balances: A Constitutional Monarchy or a Secular Republic.

As to your question Yes he has been speaking and exchanging views with fellow compatriots on a regular basis not just by giving interviews but also through his website's monthy Q&A:

Reza Cyrus

by khengali on

Dear DK

Has the former Shazde ever been available for a Q & A, or any bull session, with ordinary Iranians, on any occasion?Outside his protective cocoon?. without the presence of hysterical adoring fans?.I ask for I don't know.

Hope the young man dosen't let all these adorations go to his head.He is not a rock star and he is not a Shah.What he is and what I appreciate seeing in him is an Iranian sobering voice counterbalancing that of the mad Mullahs.May God love and protect him and his family.

The Pahlavi dynasty really does have a good chance of coming back.



"They are not afraid of the ideology alone, but of the detemination and will of the men behind it"



by afshinazad on

He should gather the Iranian in same way and unite the nation for regime change and he should claim the leadership and enough of waiting for others so called left and right and what ever leaders, REZAH PAHLAVI, should lead and let rest of the parties join him.He never should forget that he has a responsiblity to fulfill and Iranian people want real leader to make a move.

More important than any one leader , are the Social movents

by Hoshang Targol on

of Iran that will make the ultimate difference for Iran's future, depending on their level of organizing, social weight, unity with other social movements,...

Keep in mind, these contemporary Iranian  social movements are the same social movements that overthrow shah, remained in Iran ( while everyone else was forced out into exile) and they have opposed IR for the past 31 years. And they've been in the for front of the struggle during past 2 years.

So, on the substantial side of things: as much as any one group or leader ( be it monarchist, nationalist, religious or left) would like to project and portray themselves AS THE LEADER of Iran, the everyday realities of social struggle in Iran gives us a vastly more varied, many-sided, complex picture.

Facts are stubborn things.

Of gathering and dispersion

by comrade on

In March 1992, shortly after this heartwarming gathering, a Serb groom and his father became the first victims of the Bosnian war in a Sarajevo shooting.

I had seen Tito's Yugoslavia, and always wondered how he kept it together....

I owe the writer of this blog an apology for my never-ceasing sense of wonder this, wonder that and going seemingly off topic...

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

SPink Jaan I look forward to Your Film Review

by Darius Kadivar on

Personally I didn't like it at all ... 

Or at least I would have directed it differently. But it was a sincere film from the director's point of view. It simply was not mine.

Darius, I actually thought

by Sargord Pirouz on

Darius, I actually thought of you yesterday. There's a big rainstorm in my area, so I can't ride my motorcycle over the weekend. So I walked over to my local public library. We have a rather large Persian collection there, including many books and DVDs. We just received the film "The Queen and I" in the DVD section. I debated with myself on whether to check it out or not. I finally figured what the heck and checked it out. 

Maybe in a future comment I'll tell you what I think of it. Cheers.
