Reza Pahlavi on VOA

Interview With VOA Persian TV:

In an interview with Voice of America, Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi of Iran said:
    The alternative is quite clear. We are faced with a dictatorial, medieval and religious system of government that like all other dictatorships suppresses its own people...

    Our goal is to replace this system with a democratic government based on respect for human rights and pluralism...

    We need a parliamentary democracy in which the separation of religion and the affairs of government are clearly separated...

    Leave historic judgments to historians. I am looking ahead to our future...
مصاحبه رضا پهلوي با تلویزیون صدای آمریکا ميز گردی با شما

آلترناتیو برای مملکت کاملا روشن است. ما یک حکومت استبدادی ، قرون وسطائی و مذهبی داریم که همانند هر دیکتاتوری دیگری مردم را سرکوب میکند. هدف ، جایگزینی چنین حکومتی است با نظامی که بر اساس اصول دموکراسی، حقوق بشر و پلورالیسم سیاسی ریخته شده باشد. ما یک دموکراسی پارلمانی لازم داریم که در آن جدائی دین از حکومت کاملا مشخص باشد. قضاوت تاریخی را به مورخین بسپاریم. نگاه من به آینده کشور است

"our goal is to replace the current system with a democratic government".
.....and how do you exactly plan to do that? US military? i`m sorry, but the Iranian opposition leaders are more like motivational speakers. not in touch with reality, and nothing pragmatic and attainable to offer. they`ve had 27 some years to get the job done.
