Violence and Terrorism Should Be Condemned by People of All Faiths
Sunday, February 8, 2015

Jim Slattery
I have encouraged, plotted and invested ten years of my life in trying to encourage dialog between the people of Iran and people of the United States in my firm belief that if our two great nations and peoples of these countries can fix this nuclear issue, we can have a very bright future. And there is a lot that America can benefit from a positive relationship with Iran and vice versa, and we should strive for that and our leaders need to have the courage to take the risk for peace.

US Congress Seeks Strategic Sanctions against Iran to Derail Nuclear Talks
Thursday, February 5, 2015

Mohammad Farhad Koleini
The goal pursued by most members of the Congress is to make Iran backtrack on its positions. In other words, their behavior and efforts are not meant to further bolster negotiations, but are meant to cause the failure of the negotiations and destroy any existing grounds for further talks.

Iran Facing New Opportunities in Afghanistan
Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Ja'far Haghpanah
It seems that both countries have a host of longstanding and fixed issues on their respective political agendas for improvement of relations. Just as put by Mr. Zarif, issues like security along common border, border rivers, water resources, immigrants, and drug smuggling are major topics on these agendas. Of high importance are also bilateral economic and trade exchanges as well as the security in Afghanistan.

Islam and Christianity Are the Religions of Peace and Moderation
Wednesday, January 21, 2015

John Bryson Chane
ISIS is not a religious group; they are terrorists and that’s what they need to be labeled at. They’re not representatives of Islam; Islam is a religion of peace just as Christianity is. And why they use religion is that it gives them a leg up on public relations and that also builds on the way in which the West too often sees Islam which is they don’t really know what it is about.

Saudi Arabia Not Sole Cause for Global Oil Slump
Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Abbas Maleki
We must not forget those parties that are working against the interests of Iran, and only focus on our neighboring states. As for the issue that we have been discussing here, we must try to find the country which quite recently put the names of several Iranian companies and individuals on the list of its sanctions. We must also seek out all those countries that implement sanctions against Iran. It would not be realistic to ignore all of them and just focus on Saudi Arabia because of the assumed hostility of Riyadh toward Tehran.

Iran Is Being Punished for Not Possessing Nuclear Weapons
Monday, January 12, 2015

Jan Oberg
You’re not allowed to bomb and kill; you’re not even allowed according to international law to threaten the existence of a country. What has been done to your country is a serious international law violation. I mean you can court almost any right wing politician in the U.S. who has uttered at some point that Iran should possibly be bombed. You have sanctions which is a violent means, at least in some sense, where this violence last long enough it’ll be, you know, horrible to your people. This is against international law.

Iran-Saudi Dialogue Best Way to Solve Regional Problems

Amir Mousavi
Dialogue between Iran and Saudi Arabia can help solve many problems between Tehran and Riyadh and can also even pave the way to find solutions for many regional problems.

Foreign Intervention Does Not Bring Peace and Stability to Middle East
Saturday, January 3, 2015

Georgios Iacovou
I think the fact that the negotiations are still going on regarding the nuclear program is very encouraging in my view, because Iran is a signatory of the Non-Proliferation Treaty and is committed not to develop nuclear weapons. And of course the International Atomic Energy Agency has been very active investigating Iran’s nuclear program. So, I think it’s on the right path, and in my assessment from what I’ve read and talked to people, is that good progress was made.

Iran Can’t Remain Indifferent toward Syria
Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Hossein Royvaran
During the past month, high-ranking officials from Iran and Syria have been busy paying mutual visits to Tehran and Damascus. What is the reason for such an increase in diplomatic exchanges between Iran and Syria? How the new Iranian administration has performed with regard to the ongoing crisis in Syria? What will happen to the plan proposed by the United Nations’ Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura?

Iran Is a Victim of Violence and Extremism
Saturday, December 27, 2014

Paolo Cotta-Ramusino
I think that Iran, in a sense, has an opportunity to play a bigger role in the region. Iran should make very clear to the other powers in the region, especially Saudi Arabia, that it’s not a matter or an issue of leadership in the Islamic world or in the region which is at stake. What it at stake is the elimination of these violent and extremist methods of fighting which is damaging everybody including the West.
