President Trump And The Iran Protests

All of this is coming in the context of Mr. Trump’s vow to gut some of the key sweetheart deals the Iranians wangled out of the Obama/Kerry team.

For Israel, Trump is a Glimmer of Hope After a Long Darkness

Will Mass Protests Divert Iran’s attention Inward and Away from Fighting Israel?

85% of Iranians feel estranged from the regime, leaving it hollow and vulnerable. If this round of protests is quashed, as happened in 2009, the regime’s overthrow will be further delayed. But the counter-revolution is inevitable.

Trump Reverses Obama Doctrine On Iran

Obama jabbered endlessly about American leadership while simultaneously “leading from behind.” Trump actually pursues US leadership while simultaneously claiming the isolationist mantle of “America first.”

Regime Change Is the West’s Best Hope for Iran

Cracks are beginning to show as enraged demonstrators beat at the Islamic Republic’s foundations. Iran is a repressive regime that sacrificed its legitimacy long before its citizens took to the streets in revolt.

The Regime Chants “Death to America,” Iranians Chant “Death to Mullahs”

Now, people in Iran are demanding not just limited reforms but regime change. The government has been doing all it can to stoke the flames of hatred, but has been trying to deflect it to "Death to America" and "Death to Israel".

I wanted to try and begin to understand the unfathomable: How did such evil come about?

Obama, Hezbollah, and the End of Israel

Hezbollah, once just an Iranian proxy, has become a battle heartened army over the last few years of fighting to save Assad’s regime in Syria and now boasts over 100 thousand rockets aimed at Israel.

Debating BDS with Cornel West

West argued that BDS would encourage Israel to make peace with the Palestinians. I replied Israel would never be blackmailed into compromising its security, and that the Palestinians are disincentivized into making compromises by the fantasy that they will get a state through economic and cultural extortion.

An End To The Madness

And what about the Jewish singles themselves? What are they doing to help alleviate the painful problem of not having found their soulmate?

Defining ‘Occupied’ and the Semantic Battle for Peace

Using the term “occupied territories” or “West Bank" (favored by US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman) is part of a high-stakes battle to determine the outcome of the debate about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

One is left to wonder, where does the New York Times get its information?

Forward Thinking by Ambassador Friedman
