History's real lessons on Iran

History's real lessons on Iran Categories: International Security, Iran, Op-eds     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Several recent articles have called on President Donald Trump to change the Iran policy of the United States based on ‘past lessons' and Persian history. If we follow these writers to a logical conclusion, then they appear to accept that Iran must be appeased and accommodated, not confronted o

Teheran's Weak Hand

Teheran's Weak Hand Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Jason Brodsky

With US President Trump's decision to lay down a red line on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and slap more onerous non-nuclear sanctions on Iran, its clerical establishment has vowed a "severe response." But while Teheran's rhetoric has been threatening, its riposte is likely to be re

Is Iran really complying with the Nuke Deal?

Is Iran really complying with the Nuke Deal? Categories: International Security, Iran     Author: Alan Dershowitz

The evidence is mounting that Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, but that it is also violating its letter. The prologue to the deal explicitly states: "Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons." This reaffirmation

An opportunity to fix a flawed deal

An opportunity to fix a flawed deal Categories: International Security, Iran, Op-eds     Author: Shmuel Levin

The only penalty that can be implemented for violations of the JCPOA is the full re-imposition of sanctions - which automatically ends all restrictions on Iran under the agreement. This has been compared to a legal system with only one punishment - the death penalty - for every crime. The obvious re

Three things to fix in the Iran Deal

Three things to fix in the Iran Deal Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Robert Satloff

Two years ago, I urged US Senators to vote "no" on the Iran nuclear deal. My goal was not to have them scrap the accord, which had numerous positive benefits, but to give President Barack Obama leverage to repair its serious flaws. "No," I argued, "doesn't necessarily mean ‘no, never.' It can

Trump’s third way

Trump’s third way Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Clifford May

US President Donald Trump made a tough call on Oct. 13. European diplomats and an "echo chamber" in the mainstream media were insisting he "recertify" the nuclear weapons deal his predecessor concluded with Iran's rulers in 2015.

Is Iran complying with the JCPOA?

Is Iran complying with the JCPOA? Categories: International Security, Iran, United States     Author: Tzvi Kahn

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared on Sept. 17 that Iran is in "technical compliance" with the 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This assertion ignores multiple Iranian violations of the letter of the accord. It overlooks the lack of trans

Amidst concern over North Korea's ICBM launch, Iranian missile shows Iran heading the same way

Amidst concern over North Korea's ICBM launch, Iranian missile shows Iran heading the same way Categories: Asia, International Security, Iran, Updates     Author: Sharyn Mittelman

The spotlight has justifiably been on North Korea for conducting another test on July 28 of an ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) which could reach Australia or most of the US West Coast. However a day earlier Iran also tested a missile, which received less attention, but which is equally co

After N Korea, don't forget Iran

After N Korea, don't forget Iran Categories: Asia, International Security, Iran, Op-eds     Author: Shmuel Levin

As North Korea once again comes to the fore of the world's conscious, the lesson should be clear. What matters is not short-term talk, deal, and negotiations, but whether Iran's long-term ambitions have changed. For now, this does not seem to be the case. And, if this is allowed to fester, the long
