Future Challenges Faced by #Iran

With the Iranian elections coming up, a friend recently asked me: what are the most serious threats which Iran is likely to face in the future?

Its a question which I have been wondering about for a while. So I decided to put my thought into words for the Global Policy Journal.

Hope its of interest.

No, America’s Iran Policy Isn’t Beholden to Israel

Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council argued in a recent piece that America needs to “De-Israelize” its Iran policy.

My recent piece for The National Interest is a rebuttal of some of the main arguments made in that article.

My thoughts on the recent Iran deal

Is the recent deal with Iran a “historic mistake for Israel”, or is there room for optimism?

I am more optimistic than others, although the deal does contain some areas of concern. I absolutely understand why some of my Israeli compatriots are suspicious of the Iranian regime.
