If you want to see how improved US-Iran relations will play out on the ground in America, head to Westwood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

MEK’s Fake Intelligence On Aleppo Only Hinders Fact-finding Bodies Finding The Truth
Saturday, December 24, 2016

Massoud Khodabandeh
An article published in the Washington Times Security section claims that (yet again) the Mojahedin Khalq (aka MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult, Saddam’s Private Army) has provided intelligence to the West on Iranian crimes and atrocities. However, in terms of actual intelligence revelations, the article should more properly have sat in the Opinion section

Trump and Bush: A Comparison
Sunday, December 18, 2016

Kaveh L. Afrasiabi, Ph.d
US President-elect Donald Trump has publicly vowed to "stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments." He has also pledged to work with any nation that is genuinely interested in fight against ISIS terrorism.

In January 2016 we’ve witnessed a partial withdrawal of sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran. It should be noted that the introduction of those was linked to Iran’s nuclear program, which worried the United States and its allies, therefore Western countries were behind the introduction of sanctions that were aimed at applying pressure on Iran back in 1970s.

EU-Iran Relations in Trump Era

Seyed Hossein Mousavian
Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran’s relations with the major European states has been fragile and subject to the whims of sanctions regimes. The Iran nuclear deal was a watershed; removing sanctions and opening the door to broader economic cooperation and more sustainable, comprehensive ties. With Donald Trump in the White House, however, the issue is whether a durable, far-reaching Iran-EU relationship can emerge.

Correcting Scholarly Errors on Iran's Regional 'Ambitions'
Thursday, December 1, 2016

Kaveh L. Afrasiabi, Ph.D.
Over the years a number of expatriate Iranian scholars have done a major disservice to Iran by misinterpreting Iran's foreign policy as one driven to establish a "Shiite Crescent" and or "regional supremacy." Neither assumption is correct and each in its own way has indirectly contributed to the phenomenon of Iranophobia in the region, by lending intellectual legitimacy to it.
