I agree with Reza Pahlavi on Iranian interference in other Middle Eastern countries being the cause of the current crisis. Iranian support for Hamas and Hizbollah is unacceptable, and USA ought to continue sanctions against the Iranian regime as long as Iran supports Hamas and Hizbollah.
Iran ought to withdraw from Syria, but USA ought to withdraw from Syria too, because USA supports PYD . USA's support of PYD
reminds me of USA's infamous support of Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, which was a result of the Communist regime in Vietnam invading Cambodia and overthrowing Pol Pot. The Communist regime in Vietnam was far less brutal than Khmer Rouge, and Assad is preferable to PYD, just as the Communist regime in Vietnam was preferable to Khmer Rouge. Russia ought to stay in Syria in order to prop up the Assad regime and to ensure, that the Assad regime reconquers the entire Syria, including the Kurdish regions of Syria. 
To me, eliminating PKK and PYD is far more important than overthrowing the Iranian regime. I don't want the Kurdish analogue of Khmer Rouge to take power in Kurdistan. If I have to choose between a free Kurdistan and a free Iran, I will always choose a free Kurdistan. PKK/PYD is the worst enemy of Kurdistan, and USA supports PYD. That has to stop immediately. Russia is right concerning Kurdistan and Syria. Russia supports KRG and Assad and opposes PKK/PYD.

Quote:
It’s important to remember there’s a huge disconnect between the Ayatollah and his henchmen who rule the country, and the Iranian people. Reza Pahlavi, the son of the late Shah of Iran, has been an outspoken proponent of a democratic Iran. In his book, "Winds of Change," he notes that after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Iranians gathered in large numbers and held candlelight vigils while chanting slogans in support of America. As expected, the Islamist regime cracked down on the people.

I'm not surprised that Newsweek would carry a biased article regarding the Iranian opposition movement, giving excessive coverage to the MEK and Maryam Rajavi, and failing to tell the truth about Reza Pahlavi, Iranian monarchists and nationalists and other political movements.

Firstly, the MEK is despised by Iranians because of its violent history, cult-like leadership, and its role in the Iran-Iraq war when it collaborated with Saddam Hussein. As a result, virtually all other Iranian opposition movements want nothing to do with it.

Secondly, the name of Reza Pahlavi (The Official Site of Reza Pahlavi) has been chanted by protesters both inside and outside Iran. Memories of the Pahlavi Dynasty are being evoked by Iranians because they know the truth, not what they have been fed by Left and Islamist indoctrination over decades. The monarchist and nationalist camp is by far the largest opposition camp.

Thirdly, there are certainly other opposition movements in Iran, various "progressive" movements and some figures who had participated in the Islamic Republic regime at some point or another - something many Iranians may find hard to accept, to forgive or forget.

Lastly, the issue of ethnic minority movements. Persecution of ethnic and religious groups in Iran is across the board. We know that. There are parties which advocate federalism or even separatism from Iran, which the majority of the Iranian opposition considers to be intolerable - even when the said movements share their opposition to the regime.

Iran has never oppressed the Kurds, unlike Iraq and Turkey, according to Jalal Talabani. It's true, that the Iranian regime oppresses non-Shia Kurds, but Iran doesn't oppress the Kurds as an ethnic group. Most Kurds in Iran don't want independence and the Kurds are an Iranic people.

Trump has finally fired Bolton. I dislike Bolton, because he supports PYD and MEK and because he is a warmonger. I hope, that the dismissal of Bolton will lead to USA withdrawing from Syria. USA ought to make a deal with Iran, in which Iran agrees to withdraw from Syria in exchange for USA lifting sanctions on Iran and USA withdrawing from Syria. Iran withdrawing from Syria will prevent Iran attacking Israel from Syria, and USA withdrawing from Syria will doom PYD. I want the Iranian regime to be overthrown, and I support the restoration of the Pahlavi Shahdom, but it must be done by the Iranian people, not by USA.

Yes the whole issue is that Bolton and Giuliani have long supported MEK when they are clearly despised by most Iranians and as I mentioned are shunned by most opposition movements.

The most likely outcome of the dismissal of Bolton is, that Trump will restore Obama's nuclear deal, if Iran withdraws from Syria. The main fault of Obama's nuclear deal was, that it allowed continued Iranian military presence in Syria. Iranian military presence in Syria is a grave threat to Israel. If Iran withdraws from Syria, USA ought to withdraw from Syria too. USA ought to abandon pursuing regime change in Iran. The most urgent matters in the Middle East is defeating PKK/PYD and preventing Iranian attacks on Israel from Syria, not overthrowing the Iranian regime. I hope the Iranian regime will be overthrown by the Iranian people, but it's not a matter of international concern.

Like the Cuban Revolution two decades earlier, the Iranian Revolution was a gift to enemies of the West. That's why it must be reversed.

Your article is slandering Mikhail Gorbachev by comparing him to Ali Khamenei. Gorbachev ended persecution of the Russian Orthodox Church in 1988, he allowed partially free elections in March 1989 and he refused to clamp down on the East German uprising against the Communist regime. He abolished the Communist single-party system on February 7 1990.
Ali Khamenei is a tyrant, who opposes even limited reforms in Iran. He has obstructed the reforms of every reformist President of Iran. He will never allow Iranian Muslims to convert to another religion, such as Zoroastrianism, Christianity or the Baha'i faith, he will never allow the Baha'is to practice their religion freely and he will never allow candidates, who don't support the principles of the Islamic revolution to run in elections. Khamenei is more similar to Erich Honecker than to Gorbachev.
I'm grateful to Gorbachev for liberating East Germany, the homeland of my ancestors. You ought to be grateful to Gorbachev for liberating your homeland (Czechia). The Communist regime in East Germany seriously considered making a Tiananmen-style crackdown in October 1989, but Gorbachev refused to let the Russian troops in East Germany attack the protesters, despite the hardliners in the Communist Party of the Soviet Union disagreeing with him.
