Event to be held on Tuesday, January 29, 2024, at 7:00 PM PST at the Simon Wiesenthal Center-Museum of Tolerance.
For immediate release
Against the backdrop of the recent killing of US soldiers by Iranian proxies, the Simon Wiesenthal Center will host a speech by Reza Pahlavi, the Crown Prince of Iran.
The Crown Prince will discuss recent developments in the Middle East followed by a conversation with Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action Agenda for the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (UCIRF).
The Crown Prince will be asked about the implications of a nuclearized Iran and will offer insights about the attitudes of the Iranian people vis-à-vis Israel and the United States as well as his vision for the future of an Iranian people free from the yoke of Ayatollah Khamenei.
Rabbi Cooper noted, “There are very few public figures who understand the inner workings of Iran as much as Crown Prince Pahlavi. As the Iranian regime plots the destruction of Israel and continues attacks on US interests, the Crown Prince will offer insights on critical issues of the day impacting his homeland and the Middle East.”
The event, to be held in person at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance, will also be livestreamed on Iran International Live online after 7:00pm PT: https://www.iranintl.com/live
