Reza Pahlavi on Revolution

Reza Pahlavi, the one-time heir apparent to the Peacock Throne who pledged to work with then-Defense Minister Ariel Sharon to build a counter-revolutionary army in 1982 (a plan that was aborted after the Sabra and Shatila massacres in Lebanon forced Sharon’s resignation), has just tweeted: “In the history of humanity, never has there been a government that was able to resist a unified and committed people.”  He has first-hand knowledge of this belief, of course.
