As a child, I had two visions: one when I was five and one when I was six. The first time, I saw our Prophet Ali, he who, according to our religion, disappeared to return the day he would save the world. I had an accident: I fell against a rock. And he saved me: He placed himself between me and the rock. I know because I saw him. And not in a dream: in reality. Material reality, if you see what I mean. I alone saw him.—Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi
Regime fat cats drive luxury cars & send kids to live in Great Satan, continue their charade of solidarity for Gaza & justice for Khashoggi. Meanwhile Iran factory workers, teachers, farmers, child laborers... denied most basic dignities. All in an oil rich state. —Miriam Memarsadeghi, co-founder/co-director Tavaana
Here's the ultimate contradiction in the argument for state suppression of speech in the name of equality: it demands the protection of disadvantaged minorities' interests, but in a democracy, the state acts in the name of the majority, not the minority—David Cole
You complain about violation of your basic human rights they arrest you and put you in jail. You hire a lawyer to defend you they put her in jail. She protests, they harass her family. That is justice in the Islamic Republican Iran. #FreeNasrin—Firouz Nader; Former NASA Mars Exploration Program Manager.
When animals are crossing a ford, if the one in front goes crookedly, all the others go crookedly. So too, among human beings, when the leader behaves unrighteously, other people behave unrighteously. If the leader is unrighteous, the entire country is miserable.—Buddha Shakyamuni
I didn’t want to be a doctor or a dentist. I wanted to become a singer, my mom would say, ‘Don’t be silly. There are no female singers in the country anymore.’ But I fought to do my own thing.—Iranian pop star Golazin Ardestani
"On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!"—Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
I can only assume that those people, groups, and governments that are constantly screaming about the rights of Muslims in Palestine are up in arms about this [brutal suppression of Uighur Muslims by China] too. Wait, what? They're not?—kaveh Shahrooz, Canada based lawyer
No amount of security is worth the suffering of a mediocre life chained to a routine that has killed your dreams.—Maya Mendoza
My compatriots know that their enemy is not America, Israel, or any other country, but the anti-Iranian occupying regime, which oppresses, brutalizes, and steals from them. Iranians do not accept the regime, much less its propaganda.—Prince Reza Pahlavi
The message received in Europe is clear: post-midterms Trump is on the offensive, picking up his old grudges and shifting to a new, more aggressive posture. Whether this new hostility will be confronted by European leaders gathering in Paris, who have watched Trump's downward drift from the democratic principles they hold sacrosanct, is unclear. World leaders have learned to adjust their measure of Trump. The midterm results indicate their recalibration is far from done.—Nic Robertson CNN
Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.—Albert Einstein
We have advised Swift that it must disconnect any Iranian financial institution that we designate as soon as technologically feasible to avoid sanctions exposure.—Steve Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury Secretary
The Iran economy is too corrupt, inefficient and dominated by the Revolutionary Guard-owned enterprises to present great opportunities for foreign business. When Trump re-imposed sanctions, it wasn’t a hard decision for multinational companies whether to choose access to the American market or to Iran.—David Rosenberg Haaretz
The bigotry of low expectations—the assumption that Muslim societies just don’t have the necessary cultural and religious building blocks to sustain a democracy—undoubtedly conditions the way many Americans, on the left and the right... If President Donald Trump’s commentary about Khashoggi’s murder has been offensive, just go back and look at the speeches of Barack Obama administration officials praising the counterterrorist partnership between Washington and the Algerian government...—Reuel Gerecht
Why does he [Trump] have to be an absolute prick about everything? Broad sanctions, like war, are sometimes necessary and just. But they entail pain. They're never something to celebrate and crow about.—kaveh Shahrooz, Canada based lawyer
In Europe, as in Trump's America, voters' fear stems from their lack of faith in the economy working for them -- fears based on migrants and their questionable cultures flooding in, stealing jobs. What it indicates is that the margin between getting by and falling by the wayside is getting narrower. The American dream is perishable, no longer as plausible to the masses as it once was to their parents' generation.—Nic Robinson, CNN
Terrorism must not just be thwarted, but uprooted. Iranians - the principal victims of this regime’s reign of terror - seek Iran Regime Change for they know this too well. Support them as they seek to rid Iran and the world of the foremost sponsor and perpetrator of terror.—Prince Reza Pahlavi
We congratulate the government of Denmark on its arrest of an Iranian regime assassin. For nearly 40 years, Europe has been the target of Iran-sponsored terrorist attacks. We call on our allies and partners to confront the full range of Iran’s threats to peace and security.—Secretary Pompeo
The Tehran Lobby (NIAC, etc..) was so disturbed by a dictatorship sending a hit squad abroad that it endlessly (and rightly) publicized the khashoggi murder. So I can only assume they'll all be trying to get to the bottom of this story [Officials thwarted Iran's assassination plot in Denmark] , right?—Kaveh Shahrooz, Canada based lawyer
