Former Iranian Crown Prince: End of the Regime in Sight

The “beginning of the end” of the Iranian regime has started, former crown prince of Iran Reza Pahlavi said last week in a talk at the Hudson Institute in Washington. “People smell the opportunity for the first time in 40 years,” he added. “This time is very different from 2009, even very different from 1997. The people have had it. Today’s generation of young Iranians cannot take it anymore. They want to have an opportunity for a better future. They want to be on the path of modernity and freedom. The only thing that stands between them and the free world is this regime. To the forces that are employing repression as a tool, all I can say is that there are not enough people they can kill to maintain this regime in power. They better stand down and join with their brethren,” he highlighted. He called on Western nations not to take an approach of appeasement with Iran. “All such efforts have focused on changing the regime’s behavior. All have failed. It is time to recognize that this is not a normal regime and that it will not change its behavior.” He added: “For 40 years, the regime has shown that its agenda is not Iran and the Iranian people, it’s survival at the expense of oppressing people and repressing them to the point of killing.” (J.
