Why Rowhani? What does it mean for Israel?

Why would the Supreme Leader allow someone who criticized his approach publicly, even if indirectly, to become president?

Why not falsify the results, as in 2009, and appoint a ‘yes man’ like Jalili or a close associate such as Tehran Mayor Qalibaf?

My latest piece looks into such questions, and what Rowhani’s victory means, especially for Israel.

Tehran Mayor a Powerful Contender For Iran’s Presidency

Tehran’s Mayor Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf is turning into a serious competitor in the upcoming presidential elections.

He is presenting himself as a safe pair of hands at the wheel of the country. This includes statements condemning denial of the Holocaust by Ahmadinejad, in addition to calls for a more realistic foreign policy.

My latest article explains why his chances are fair:
