Reza Pahlavi's Web Site

Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi of Iran has just launched a newly designed web site with more photos, a discussion forum, possible podcasts and lots of other great stuff.

This has been long overdue and I hope his highness's staff create a mirror of this web site for those Iranians living inside the country whose access to internet is limited due to Islamic regime's censorship.

I encourage you to take a look at and find out more for yourself. By the way, there are some never before seen images that I really loved.

Not knowing much about Iranian history, I've got some questions:

Does the Prince maintain his claim to the throne?
What kind of Iran does he want?
Is he in favor of monarchical rule, or constitutional monarchy?
What kind of reception would a restored monarchy have in Iran? Are the Iranian people interested in the monarchy as replacement for the current theocracy?

He doesn't claim to be the King of Iran and he has said, several times, that future of Iran will be determined by the people of Iran and if the people want him to be the king, he will be one. If not, he won't be.

He absolutely believes in Constitutionalism and rule of law. That's what he is advocating now.

I believe he has a large backing inside the country, even among people in their 20s and teen-agers. Let alone those who are older than 50 yrs old.

I can't talk on behalf of the Iranian people but Reza Pahlavi's chances to restore monarchy is not bad at all. Like I said, he has some large support inside the country that should be taken into account.

I hope the gov't doesn't take it over and start posting their garbage. They've done this before, I'm just not sure if it was Iran or not.

Great job he did, eh? :)

Very nice website and I really enjoyed the pictures. One thing I noticed was how happy all the people were, and there were no sad little blackbirds running around, instead there were happy, smiling, beautiful people.

I really do hope that Iranians get to see these pictures, especially the younger people. But also those who fondly remember life before the revolution.

Did you see this, Winston? Another country which will soon be accused of spying, no doubt.

Thanks for the info. B'hatlacha la'nasi.
