Robert Einhorn, a former special advisor to the US nuclear negotiation team currently at the Brookings Institution, has penned a thoughtful, albeit provocative and self-righteous, open letter to the Iranian negotiation team that raises the prospect of normalization of Iran's nuclear dossier after a period of "around 15 years," i.e., the duration of a proposed comprehensive nuclear agreement.

Given the Iranian support for Hamas and other resistance groups in Gaza, Netanyahu, counting on the support of the Congress and the Israel lobby, was also seeking to exert pressure on Obama and his administration to derail the nuclear talks with Iran. The message to the Obama administration is clear, think twice before striking a deal with Iran.
From experience, I have learned not to use a term like “last opportunity.” But I do believe this may be the best opportunity for quite some time to resolve the nuclear issue and perhaps establish a more promising basis to tackle the difficult problems that have divided Iran and the United States for so long. If this opportunity is missed, much time may pass and things may get a lot worse before another opportunity comes around.

Now, Mr. Secretary General must find himself faced with this question posed by all international observers and should be held accountable as whether he, as secretary general of the United Nations, has fulfilled his duty independently to defend the rights of the oppressed people of the Gaza Strip, or has been following the will and demands of those states that are known to be supporters of Israel in the UN Security Council?
The bottom line is that if the common sense governs the decision-making process at the White House, which seems to be the case, the necessary political will for reaching a comprehensive agreement will take shape within the next four months, in which negotiations have been extended as per the Join Plan of Action. At present, the Americans have reached the conclusion that the policy of threat and sanctions will get nowhere with Iran.
Since Iran is on its way to reduce tension with the West and sign a final comprehensive agreement with the Western countries over its nuclear energy program, as a result of which new oil markets would be opened to the country, it would be wise for Iranian officials to avoid creating any unnecessary problems in the country’s foreign policy.
On the recent massive military operations into the Gaza Strip by Israel which was coded "Operation Protective Edge", Iran Review spoke to Prof. Richard Falk, a professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University and the UN Special Rapporteur on Palestine.
Every morning, in houses all over Iran, a gas burner flickers to life under a kettle that will continue to boil all day. It boils through morning prayers, lunches of rice and kebabs, afternoon conversation and late into the evening meal, sustaining talk of politics, gossip and news well into the night.
