My guest this week was Mehrdad Youssefiani. Youssefiani is an Iranian freedom activist and a longtime counselor to Prince Reza Pahlevi, the son of the late Shah of Iran and one of the most outspoken advocates for regime change in Iran.
The massacre of seven Jews outside their synagogue in the Neve Ya’akov neighborhood of Jerusalem Friday night by a Palestinian terrorist didn’t only happen on the eve of the Sabbath. Friday was also International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
In my opening remarks in this week’s Caroline Glick Show, I discussed the connection between the demonization of the Jews in Germany and Europe from the mid-19th century through the rise of the Nazis, and their physical annihilation. The Jerusalem Arabs who committed Friday’s attack, like the one who shot two Jews in Ir David on Saturday morning, were the products of their society.
My guest this week was Mehrdad Youssefiani. Youssefiani is an Iranian freedom activist and a longtime counselor to Prince Reza Pahlevi, the son of the late Shah of Iran and one of the most outspoken advocates for regime change in Iran. Youssefiani, who is visiting Israel this week, came to the JNS studio in Jerusalem to discuss the weekend explosions in Iran and their impact on the now five-month-old revolution in the streets of Iran.
Youssefiani excoriated the U.S. and European media for ignoring and distorting the reality of the revolution, noting that “this is the first feminist revolution in human history,” but the media doesn’t care. Youssefiani discussed what needs to be done to build a different regime in Iran and what the U.S., Europe and other international actors can do to facilitate the downfall of the terrorist regime in Tehran. Among his many critical messages, Youssefiani bitterly implored the leaders of the free world that if they don’t intend to help the revolutionaries, the least they could do is stop supporting and empowering the Khomeinist regime in Tehran. This includes finally ending their nuclear diplomacy with the ayatollahs.
Youssefiani also explored the 3,000-year friendship between the Persian and Jewish people and the longstanding influence of Cyrus the Great on the people of Iran and their approach to the Jewish people and to Israel.
