“They said they would return to the nuclear deal when the sworn enemy (the regime in Iran) left to question the level of uranium enrichment,” Pahlavi said of the administration’s statements regarding a return to the treaty. “This is a black hole of the free world.

I have no doubt that the children of Cyrus always have a special place in the hearts of the people of Israel,” Pahlavi said.

“The Islamic regime, since its inception, has celebrated death. On the other hand, my favorite toast is the Jewish ‘cheaters’ – to life! We Iranians, as a civilization, prefer to celebrate life rather than death. Those who think like us, as citizens of Israel, are natural friends and friends, “worries Pahlavi.
