Hi,
I have read it in French version. I must recognise that books of memories of HIM Empress Farah and HM Queen Noor are very different and fron my point of view the best one is the writen by the Shahbanou Farah. All the book is full of sincerity, reflexionl, love and also critizism. She sowhs to be a great woman, a great Queen.

If I can just remark on the differences between the Shahbanou and Queen Noor's books-I would imagine that Noor is very aware of the position of the monarchy in Jordan, and she didn't want to say anything in her book that may be misperceived in the country, and that might reflect badly on Abdullah, or on her own children. I think with the Empress, the idea of the monarchy being restored to Iran is perhaps more remote, and thus she could speak a little more freely. I have no doubt that she loved the late Shah very much, and that she wishes to keep his memory alive not only for her familiy's sake, but for those who would *like* to see a return of the Imperial family to Iran. Again, that's just my impression. Noor's book (and I like her personally) seemed more of a history thesis on Middle Eastern politics, and her husband's place in history, rather than an actual memoir.

I haven't read the book and dont plan on doing so. But I have seen Farah making tv appearances to promote her book. The whole story about a tragic queen thrown out of her country is all very sentimental, especially if you look at what has happened to Iran since the revolution. But the media has such a double-standard. They always fail to point out that Farah's husband's regime was far from democratic. The Shah was ruthless and quite hypocritical, anyone who knows about his views on women knows that. I fail to understand how Farah can be all sentimental and talk about 'enduring love' when I have seen her on tv sitting next to her husband with tears in her eyes while he gives a whole lecture on why women are essentially inferior to men and have never made any significant accomplishements in history. It seems to me that Farah is attempting to re-write history by projecting this image of herself and her husband's regime as progressive, democratic etc. I know when im being subjected to propaganda.
Granted the revolution has proven terrible for Iran but you cant ignore exactly why it happened...because the Shah's regime was extravagant and corrupt.
I dont mean to be too hard on her. Im sure she's been hurt by everything thats happened and has behaved gracefully. But Im not going to let that obscure the truth about her husband's regime.

In my opinion if we introduce political discussion we also should talk about the "democracy" in Jordan. Unfortunately Jordan is not today a democracy, there are a lot of luck of rights, human rights are constantly violated and, talking about the women idea and role, we know that in Jordan, today, it exist the right to kill the woman that is not loyal to her husband ..., so, in fact, women are considered citizens of seconth category ...

You're right ofcourse. But I wasn't making a comparison. The case of Jordan is similar to the late Shah's regime. The US supports a regime, even an undemocratic one, if its in America's interest. Thats what i mean by a double-standard. But thats a whole different discussion.

Well said. I agree with you, Wife of Jack.

Ok, I agree. However, I think is important to point out the enourmous work made by Emp0ress Farah during the time she was in Iran. I'm sure that if now she was in Tehran, with the current media, she would occupy covers around the war.

well perhaps she'd have done a lot more and would still be in Iran if she'd had a different husband
I myself dont approve of progress through imposed westernization, thats not democracy.

About Empress Farah of Iran

Dedar friends,

I'm seriously worried about HIM Empress Farah of Iran. Every year she pays a visit at Rafai Mosquee, in Cayro, to pay an homage to her husband, the late Shah of Iran. However, this year I have not seen news about this anual trip, in Her Majesty's website there are no news about this.

Please, some of you could say something about this issue?

Many thanks.

Sol

Unfortunately, I have no news of the Empress's annual trip to Rafai. Perhaps, she has been delayed for some unforseen reason. But, I do hope she is well!
