His strategy: to use the internet to link Iranians inside and outside the country and – with the help of international pressure – secure regime change.
Mr Pahlavi recognises that the bitter memories of his father's rule, during which thousands of Iranians were imprisoned and killed by the Shah's notorious secret police, the Savak, have eclipsed his legacy. But although there may be residual nostalgia for the secular and modernising Shah, his 48-year-old son remains an unknown quantity.
The wealthy US-based businessman seems remote from the concerns of the average Iranian and demonstrations that he organised in the past were harshly repressed.
Mr Pahlavi, who concentrated in the past on rousing the Iranian diaspora, is now placing his hopes in the young generation which makes up 70 per cent of the Iranian population. "We need to discover the new generation, the children of the revolution," he argues.
Shades of 1953
I refer to this report in 2007 where President Bush authorised the spending of millions of dollars to to mount a covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government.
A speech in Congress in 2007 by Congressman Jim McDermott warns that the Bush administrations intentions are very clear .
Watch the video...
So here we have a covert black ops by the US government in Iran to destabilise the Iranian government, the US government climbing down over the invasion of Iran and advocating diplomatic negotiation and The Shah of Iran's son stating his intentions to create a regime change in Iran with the help of 'International pressure'
We already know the cabal always have favoured using tried and trusted methods to achieve their goals.
So is all of this just a coincidence?
In my book their isn't any such thing.
A rerun of Operation Ajax?
Judge for yourself!
