Trump administration is playing a dangerous game with Iran policy

On Feb. 2, Press Secretary Sean Spicer made the blunder of falsely accusing Iran of attacking a U.S. naval vessel, following a statement by former national security advisor Michael Flynn that Iran was officially being put “on notice.” Spicer’s statement came from the White House following Iran’s missile test and an attack by Yemeni Houthi…

PRO: President Obama’s Iran deal avoids war

In July, diplomats from around the world met in Vienna, Austria and negotiated a landmark nuclear deal with Iran. Currently, the deal is on its way towards being passed by the United States legislature.  The Iran deal avoids another Middle Eastern war, pure and simple. If you don’t want Iran to have a nuclear weapon, you support this…

CON: Do not settle for weak nuclear deal with Iran

In July, diplomats from around the world met in Vienna, Austria and negotiated a landmark nuclear deal with Iran. Currently, the deal is on its way towards being passed by the United States legislature.  Before I continue, I need to make one thing absolutely clear. I am a Democrat. I am not a Republican. Chuck Schumer is not the…

Holocaust hate still affecting society

The International Holocaust Remembrance Day recently commemorated the 68th anniversary for the liberation of the largest Nazi death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Presently, we have the leaders of Iran calling for the annihilation of the people of Israel declaring that “the people of Iran are ready to march on Israel to wipe it out.” The British Sunday…

Obama seemingly widens divide with Israel

It is no secret that Israel is the strongest and most loyal partner to the U.S. in the Middle East region. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refuse to see Israel as anything more than an annoyance on the Middle Eastern stage. In an effort to bring peace to the Middle…

US relationship with Israel a key, but overlooked issue

In the next few weeks, we will hear President Obama and Gov. Romney debate on a litany of issues including the economy, energy, healthcare and foreign policy. One issue that will not receive such a spotlight, but is of great importance, is the U.S. relationship with Israel. Israel is a representative democracy in the Middle…

Iran may economically choke U.S.

T he threat of Iran is imminent. Most dismiss the reality that a nuclear-proliferated Iran will be a real threat to America. It’s not like they could ever drop the bomb on American soil right?  It’s not an attack on American soil that we should fear.  It’s our economic longevity. Let us think back to…

Nuclear Iran proves to be threat

I ran must not get a nuclear weapon. It would completely reshape the power balance in the Middle East and put the United States in danger. Iranian President Ahmadinejad is an unstable and vicious tyrant. When his people rebelled against what was thought to be a corrupt electoral victory, Ahmadinejad’s regime hunted down the protestors…

Learning from our leader

In 1962, one Peace Corps volunteer began her two-year visit to southern Iran to teach English to locals in a small village near Basra. She wanted to volunteer in the Middle East, particularly because her family is Lebanese. 46 years later, she would share her experiences with about 20 students at Storer Auditorium who are looking at embarking on a similar journey with the organization.

Iran saga continues

Nearly a month after the al-Quds day protests, the Iranian government has announced that three individuals who participated in post-election riots during the summer have been sentenced to death. Though the death sentences can, and probably will, be appealed, the significance of this development cannot be overestimated.

Opinion

The other green revolution

I am greatly encouraged by the display on Quds Day. It shows the Iranian people cannot be pacified by a regime that tries to silence them, that they will continue to speak out until they are heard.
