This could be part of the most important development in the 21st century, and I am not exagerating.
Last week, while in southern California, Reza Pahlavi of Iran hosted a delegation, led by Dr. Kamal Artin, President of KNC-NA [Kurdish National Congress of North America], affording the parties to hold candid and productive discussions about Iranian and regional issues. Marking a significant step forward, the discussions were candid, in that they addressed past differences, but also quite productive, in that a consensus was reached over the common goals and values which are universally demanded by all Iranians: that of the territorial integrity of Iran, adherence to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, including the principals of secularism and all freedoms that have been systematically violated by the clerical regime of Iran since its inception.
Agreeing that the clerical regime and its constitution is fundamentally irreformable, the participants concluded that the most efficacious way of bringing about meaningful change to Iran, is by means of a well coordinated, widespread, "non-violent campaign of civil disobedience” culminating in a free, fair and transparent national referendum whereby the Iranian people can directly decide on their choice of a secular, democratic system of governance: whether it be a republic, constitutional monarchy, a federative or centralized form of governance.
Everyone can see that the Iranian regime is collapsing. Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah, is here preparing a return of the monarchy by mixing in a constitutional monarchy with other forms of government possibly realisable after a revolution.
A return of the Pahlavi dynasty to Iran would solve many problems. Currently Iran is falling apart, with ethnic groups demanding their autonomy or independence. A monarchy can be a neutral (in the ethnical sense) figurehead uniting the different peoples of Iran.
A Pahlavi emperor would also immediately return Iran into the civilised world and an alliance with the west. The late Shah had planned to transform Iran into a world power and was on the way to succeed. His son can likely finish the job. Iran has everything needed to become a world power.
Just imagine a country with Iran's population and resources, Israeli technology and excellent ties to the United States. Just imagine a military as good as Israel's and as large as Iran's led by a stable non-fanatical government and officials educated by western-type schools with Israeli and American teachers! Even the United States would have to respect such a country's military and economic power.
Of course, an Iran in current borders conflicts with the Kurdish right of self-determination. But once Iranian Kurds live under a religiously and ethnically neutral regime again, they won't need independence any more. And a Kurdish state can still be formed out of the parts of Kurdistan currently occupied by Turkey and Syria and joined by Iraqi Kurdistan.
