Iranophobia and Balance of Powers
Friday, August 14, 2015

Tuesday, August 11, 2015
It is more possible that the majority of the (P)GCC’s member states may choose to support Iran's nuclear deal.

Therefore, the impact of the Iran deal achieved on July 14, 2015, on Iran-EU relations will be a key element in analyzing future outlook of interactions between Iran and the EU and will also play an important role in the implementation of the Iran deal.

Conditions for Israel have become so worrisome that if their powerful lobby in the United States fails in making political leaders in Washington support Israel, this regime will face a fundamental threat. Therefore, Tel Aviv feels that through exaggerated propaganda about the so-called Iran threat, it must hide that real existential threat in order for its citizens to feel secure, like they did in the past years, and continue to back the policies of the Israel.
