Prince Reza Pahlavi calls for regime change in Iran, arguing that the country's political structure cannot be changed through negotiations and agreements. Interviewed by the newspaper “Bild”, the son of the last shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, deposed by the revolution in 1979, said that Tehran's "regime" is "based on being repressive internally and aggressive externally." Considered by royalists to be the heir to the Peacock throne, the prince added: “If one can say so, the regime wants its flag to fly over the White House and cannot coexist with the West, as happened between the blocs during the Cold War". Therefore, “it is just a waste of time to try to change the behavior” of the authorities Tehran. A regime change is therefore necessary in Iran, to be implemented through economic sanctions and support for the opposition, for example by organizing and financing workers' strikes, which are "very dangerous" for the government. The necessary resources could come from “regime funds frozen abroad”. At the same time, Pahlavi categorically rejected any external military interference in Iran.
There will be no peace in the Middle East as long as the mullahs are in power in Iran and the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue will be impossible. The one who Iranian monarchists consider the heir to the Peacock throne said he was "shocked" by the attack of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas against Israel. At the same time, Pahlavi stressed that he was not surprised by the attack because "the Iranian regime has spread a culture of hatred, violence and intolerance since the beginning." There Islamic Republic he is therefore doing "everything possible to prevent any attempt at peace in the region". In particular, Tehran wants to prevent normalization between Israel and various Arab countries and this is where one of the main reasons for Hamas' attack against the Jewish state can be found. Furthermore, as noted by Pahlavi, “the regime” in Iran is “with its back against the wall due to the protests that occurred previously in the country” and, for this reason, “is doing everything in order to divert attention from itself same". It is in this context that the Hamas attack against Israel occurs, with Iran which according to Pahlavi is "intelligent enough" not to want to "risk a direct war" against the Jewish state.
Il Iranian “regime”. he wants “a Shiite caliphate in the region,” he continued pahlavi, deposed by the revolution that occurred in the country in 1979. The prince declared that the "regime" in Tehran "has tried to export its ideology since its inception". The "word Iran as a nation does not exist in the vocabulary" of the Tehran authorities, who "always talk about an Islamic world and, from the beginning, were not interested in Iran". The Islamic Republic aims, however, to "create a Shiite caliphate in the region". For this reason, "the mullahs" financed the Lebanese Shiite party Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, while "they took no interest in their own population". Second pahlavi, this is the reason why in Iran "over 60 percent of the population lives below the poverty line", although the country has the second largest oil reserves in the world. Furthermore, “what the regime says has nothing to do with what people in Iran think.” For the prince, an example occurred after the attack of Hamas against Israel, when "fans asked for Palestinian flags to be removed from the pitch during a football match" in Iran.
