Thanks again, dear friend.

:rolleyes: Her Majesty the Shahbanou Farah Pahlavi of Iran has recognised she is expecting a new grandaughter, that means that HIM Reza Pahlavi and his wife, Princess Yasmine, will have a new child. The event is forseen for next January.

Has someone had the opportunity to read Empress Farah's memoirs? Can someone explain his/her opinion about this book?

Thank you,

There are great pics of the Empress, Prince Reza, and Princess Yasmine in www.ibl.com but......... I don't know what they have done to their new site.

Hmmmm, I can't say I like her as I never knew her in person. But being on a royal message board, I thought I'd choose her as she is one of the most beautiful royals, Iranian, and since she passed away a couple of years ago. Something like a tribute to her...

Also, I heard so much about her from my grand-parents and uncles etc. who had the pleasure of having met her. Everyone spoke about her stunning looks. That's about it really.

Swiss banks...estimated at/rumoured to be 23 billion dollars. The money was never returned to the Iranian government since it is against Swiss banking policy to do so (although it was Iran's money and not the Shah's).

The Shah's son is said to have lost all his inheritance/fortune in a business deal with a guy who ripped him off.

sol_anglada 07-16-2004 12:53 PM

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.
Sol

Jackswife 07-16-2004 01:00 PM

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.

Humera 07-16-2004 05:03 PM

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.

sol_anglada 07-17-2004 02:02 PM

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.

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.

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.

Very nice pictures of Farah Pahlavi.

She was and is still such a beautiful woman. I can see a lot of grace in the manner she carries and conducts herself. I also find her to be very serene looking often, even though her life has not always been so serene.

sol_anglada 10-22-2004 02:26 PM

Hello Alexandria,
You have perfectly described how Her Majesty is. In my opinion she is the greatest Queen (or Empress) of the XX Century for what she did in Iran during 20 years working inside as the Queen. If she had had the media, magazines, TV, Internet like others have today, she would be in the first position and respected and admired for everybody.

SemiPatriot83 10-22-2004 06:11 PM

Don't Feel Sorry for Her
 
I've been reading the posts on Farah Pahvli(sorry about the spelling), and why do you have such feelings for her? Her husband was a tyrant and she may have done some good things for the Iranian people, but she took in all the decadence of the monarchy. She, her husband, and others had their parties while their people starved. As a democrat and an american I'm ashamed of Jimmy Carter and how he allowed the Shah to come to the US. Sure, he was sick, but did he have to come here? And his family is till here in the US, his son has an office in Falls Church, Virginia. I wonder if the Shah's grandchildren know that their grandfather was a criminal responsible for the death's of scores of Iranians. Like Humerea(again sorry) said the US is willing to support a government/monarcy no matter what, as long as it has the USA's interests. It was the US who re-installed the Shah in 1953 I believe. If you want to see a good movie that deals with the post revolution lives of the Shah's elite, rent or buy "House of Sand and Fog." It's also a book by Andre Dubus III, the movie is about a woman who loses her home. The house is bought by a man named Massoud Amir Behrani, he was a colonial the Shah's air force. The colonial, his wife Naderah, and his son have been struggling since they came to the US. I don't want to give the whole story away, but it is a very sad movie.

sol_anglada 10-23-2004 03:34 PM

This is only partially true
 
What you have explained is only partically true. I agree that Empress Farah's husband, the Shah, was a non democratic kint. However, you must consider the time he was in power: during the call "cold war" and while US gave its support to any kind of dictatorships around the world. Talking about the Shah policy, it's necessary to recognise that he gave land to farmers with land, that she ordered to build thousands of schools, also hospitals, only roads, he pushed the called "White Revolution" from power, something that has not done by any leader. Also he gave the right of vote to women, which is very important. If you compare this with the current regime, I think that the past one was better.
About Farah, she was a real leader among Iranian women, she was respected and loved, she presided many organizations, she was considered by the same iranians like her mother. You can read what was printed after the islamic revolution talking about her and nobody critizised her ...

I agree.
It makes me quite sad to see smart, beautiful women throw away their lives just so they can marry rich, powerful, corrupt men. I honestly dont see how you can go out and talk about womens' rights and democracy when you've got a husband like the Shah. Its quite hypocritical. Same could be said of Assma al-Assad and her husband. Its all such a waste, but then, its not these women were forced to marry their husbands, they make their own choices and deserve to live with them.

thaliacarey 10-30-2004 08:49 PM

The shah was a very good person and he was not corrupt as you all say. it disgusts me when you call him a dictator. you know what good he did for the country, so stop calling him a dictator. again, to the person who called him a dictator, that was disgusting. if you want to write something so negative about our King and Queen, go to another forum. DO NOT write anything bad about my King, Shahanshah Aryamehr, on this forum.

I didnt know much about the Shah until I saw him on a Barbara Walters interview in which he said that women had never accomplished anything in history, his wife wept when she heard him say that. His politics wasnt any good either. He staged lavish receptions to impress foreign guests, he forced women to dressed in western clothing. During his reign, there were instances of police going around and ripping off women's headscarves, just as they force women to wear them today.
Im a student of history and know what Im talking about. I have no personal biases for or against the Iranian imperial family. Im not Iranian. I try and look at facts as objectively as they're presented to me. I think its you who needs to stop sentiment from clouding your judgement.

I think we need to all consider one another's feelings when discussing these matters. I think in this case we should all agree to disagree and move on...

A king and a Queen for a country
 
What they did was to work to convert Iran in a prosperous country, passing from medieval and feudalism system to a modern one. Of course, with problems as it happens at any country that wants to change ... and see that precisly were the most conservatives forces, the religious forces who were against their king.

Does any f you know why Princess Yasmine doesn't receive the treatment of Queen? If her husband is the Shah, she should be called Shahbanou as well Empress Farah is.
