Behind the Scene of Recent US Military Intervention in Libya
Monday, August 8, 2016

Jafar Ghannad-Bashi
The United States is in rivalry with such European countries as Britain and France in Libya and its expanded presence in Libya is of strategic importance to Washington. On the one hand, Libya’s oil reserves are equal to oil reserves in all other African countries. On the other hand, the fact that Libya has long coasts along the Mediterranean has provided American companies with a very good opportunity for investment in the country.

The Arab League and Iranophobia Syndrome
Saturday, August 6, 2016

Mohammad Khajouei
At any rate, it is clear that highlighting anti-Iran approaches within the Arab League will not help its member states solve their main problem and is just some sort of projectionist effort. In fact, the output of the Arab League’s meetings, especially in recent years, has been nothing but a bunch of resolutions and statements containing a collection of general and ambiguous words without any executive backbone.

Friday, August 5, 2016

Hossein Kebriaeezadeh
On the whole, it is clear that due to breach of promises by other parties to the nuclear deal about removal of sanctions against Iran, and as a result of the absence of tangible economic improvement in Iran following the nuclear deal, not only the understanding of Iran’s moderate politicians, who are under pressure from public opinion, is changing, but also the mentality of the society, which sees no economic improvement, about taking a moderate approach to the West.

Is the Complaint Filed with UN against Iran by Kuwait and Saudi Arabia Valid?
Monday, August 1, 2016

Ali Omidi
Marine borders of Iran, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in the former Neutral Zone have not been determined in an official way that would satisfy all the three countries, as a result of which there is no way to make claims about Iran’s transgression into marine borders of the other two countries. By the way, if the main target of the complaint by Kuwait and Saudi Arabia is the Arash gas field, this issue has basically nothing to do with Saudi Arabia.

Reza Nasri
In other words, anti-Iran American lawmakers are no more capable of taking advantage of their past weapon of passing “binding laws” and extraterritorial laws against the Islamic Republic. Therefore, in order to do harm to the implementation of the JCPOA and prevent foreign investment in Iran, they have no choice, but to resort to “publicity stunt.”

Terrorism in Europe
Monday, July 25, 2016

Pir-Mohammad Mollazehi
The modern world needs to revise its treatment of the traditional world, which allows radical forces to justify violence regardless of their affiliations. If terrorism is bad, restricting it to Muslims and ignoring Christian and Jewish extremists would be bad on the same scale. As long as there is discrimination, intervention, occupation, plundering of the national riches of nations, and collusion between the West and a local minority that monopolizes power, there would be violence in the West, regardless of whether they call it terrorism or simple fighting.

The Parliamentarist Discourse and Turkey’s Failed Coup d'état
Monday, July 25, 2016

Hossein Mofidi Ahmadi
The failure of the recent coup attempt in Turkey and its comparison with the successful coup d'état staged by the Egyptian military can teach good lessons to political leaders in Ankara and across region. Perhaps the most important lesson of this coup attempt was that if a society chooses for parliamentary methods in order to pursue its goals, violent and non-civil actions would never succeed in that society.
