Why should we support Reza Pahlavi? Because the Iranian people support him. He has the full support of Iranians inside Iran, and we must unconditionally respect their will. It would be a colossal mistake if we didn’t stand with him. Despite other opposition groups resorting to violence, Prince Pahlavi repeatedly has stated that “non-violent change is the only way to go.” “Change must come to Iran by civil disobedience and non-violence. I stress that. We can’t have change at any cost.
Surprisingly, I have noticed some similarities between Prince Reza Pahlavi and President Donald Trump. He was a successful billionaire who was happy with his empire and did not need the headache of becoming the President of the United States. But, it was his hobby, passion, and destiny to Make America Great Again.
Prince Pahlavi also led a comfortable life and did not need this distress. But something big, something more powerful, was calling him to fulfill his destiny. Although he pledged his oath to become the next in line as the Shah of Iran, he has said that he is not seeking the crown unless and until the Iranian people decide in his favor to do so. For now, his focus is not the revival of the Pahlavi dynasty, and on numerous occasions, he has stated that it is up to the people of Iran to decide their future form of government.
Pahlavi said, “After 45 years, he still finds exile painful. “I remember my childhood, I remember my country’s scenery, wherever I am in the world, I am reminded of it. I live and breathe my country. I want to do something for that piece of real estate I call home. That is my duty.”
Neither President Trump nor Prince Pahlavi was obligated to engage, endanger, and inconvenience their lives. But, they both were destined to be the agents of change. It would be fantastic to see a meeting between these two men, a landmark step toward regime change in Iran.
Iran has seen demonstrations before, but there was something extraordinary about the recent events: many protesters called Reza Pahlavi to return and even chanted: “Bring back the Shah.” This is incredible.
Pahlavi believes the people in Iran have “trust” in his “vision” for a future in Iran. He adds, ” They look up to me somehow because of my track record.” Indeed, his track record is impeccable, and he has always stated that it is up to the people of Iran to decide their destiny. Perhaps most Western media are unaware, but Pahlavi’s popularity in Iran has skyrocketed. They love him.
Like President Trump’s slogan ‘Make America Great Again,’ Iranians want to make Iran great again. Compelled by the inalienable right of the people to institute their government and replace it when it fails to serve its citizens in the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. Millions of Iranians representing the entire spectrum of society are demanding change from a repressive theocracy to an open secular democracy.
President Trump has been an inspiration to all freedom-loving people around the world. In a very short time, he has become a symbol of liberty. The Iranian people, with Reza Pahlavi at the helm, hope to repeat Trump’s motto of MAGA. More than four decades of rule by the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) has not only failed to advance the security and well-being of the people. It has ensnared the nation in a stifling theocracy where the rights of the governed are routinely violated for the benefit of the governing. Regime change is the only option to bring Iran back to the civilized world.
Prince Pahlavi guarantees equality to all its citizens and, therefore, demands no less than total adherence to the principle of unity in diversity, a unity of purpose that draws from the strength and uniqueness of its people.
Pahlavi said he wanted to see Iranians “determine their own fate out of their own free will” and praised U.S. President Donald Trump and his cabinet members for supporting the Iranian protesters.
In last year’s protests, “Iranians have made it very clear that they do not want the current regime, but they are unarmed and will not use violence. And so, civil disobedience becomes the best means of confrontation. When diplomacy fails, and war becomes an unfavorable option, people need to pressure the regime from the inside.”
Both President Trump and Prince Pahlavi want to make their country great. President Trump asked the American people to work together to make America great again. Let’s restore America to her rightful place as the exceptional leader of the free world rather than just another nation amongst many nations. He has already achieved his goal in under two years. Despite Prince Pahlavi’s love to make Iran great, the civilized world must realize that their interests are not with a group of frantic rapists and murderers but with a rational man who understands world diplomacy and will lead the Middle East to a beacon of peace. The Western world, including the United States, must fulfill Iran’s destiny. After all, they should take some responsibility for wreaking havoc on Iran.
Pahlavi will protect the legitimate rights of all minorities within Iran as enshrined and outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We have had enough of parochialism, discrimination, and oppression of minorities. No one in Iran will be disenfranchised based on any personal belief whatsoever.
In short, once this regime falls, it would be the greatest thing since the fall of Soviet communism. It would remove political Islam by creating a genuinely democratic, secular, and strong nation in tandem with Israeli democracy in the heart of the Islamic Ummah. It would answer a prayer just as much for the world as for Iranians.
