The ill-fated choices

“History will judge Iranians for the ill-fated choices they made, for ousting a great visionary and progressive king, and for installing in His place a regime that has brought poverty, death, despair, famine, and fear upon the land of Arya, the children of Cyrus and the world’s greatest and richest civilization.

And yet the last words of that great man, recited by the frail and emotional voice of His consort, Shahbanou Farah, speak of kindness, concern and forgiveness for those who did Him and His family wrong. May He rest in eternal peace, and may soon come the day when His remains are returned to His beloved homeland to rest in dignity He deserves, and for His memory and His legacy to be revered in a free and secular Iran.
