Fri, 27 May 2016 11:58:23 -0400

The Islamic Republic of Iran held another Holocaust cartoon festival this month, inviting the usual despicable cast of characters.

The Death of Iran's Islamic Left

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 16:31:54 -0500

The control of Iran’s clerical hardliners over electoral processes has guaranteed the demise of the country’s left-wing movement, writes CFR’s Ray Tayekh with Reuel Marc Gerecht. The country has moved so far to the right that die-hard reactionaries are presented as reasonable conservatives.

The recent hostages-for-criminals exchange with Iran is the latest example of the Obama administration’s willingness to concede American red lines, argues CFR’s Ray Takeyh with Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
