There are different viewpoints regarding the possible solutions that can put an end to the decade-long conflict over Iran’s nuclear program. Solutions have been put forth which ensure that Iran will have the sufficient resources for developing a civilian, commercial nuclear program while demonstrating to the international community that...Continue reading

Kourosh Ziabari - Your Middle East: The representative of the Jewish minority in Iran’s parliament (Majlis) has recently given an extensive interview to one of Iranian news agencies and discussed his different viewpoints regarding the Israeli regime and the way the Jewish community of Iran see the entity which proclaims to be representing the global Jewry. According to Siamak Mareh Sedq who has talked to the Fars News Agency, Tel Aviv needs to create crisis in the Middle East in order to survive. “If Israel faces no threat it will be destroyed within one month. Israel needs (regional) crises in a bid to continue its existence,” he said. This wise and precise analysis is exactly what the audacious commentators, intellectuals...Continue reading
Kourosh Ziabari - Iran Review: It’s more than a decade that Iran and the West are embroiled in an erosive conflict over the former’s nuclear energy program. The United States and its allies insist that Iran intends to produce atomic weapons and uses the peaceful nuclear program as a cover to further its “ambitions” while Iran strongly rejects the allegations, responding that with its growing energy demands as a country with a young population, it should access nuclear power to provide its future generations with alternative, sustainable energy resources. Throughout the past decade, Iran and the P5+1 have held several rounds of talks with the aim of finding a solution to the nuclear standoff. However, the talks were mostly...Continue reading
Kourosh Ziabari - Press TV: After delivering that ludicrous speech to the UN and displaying the childish cartoon of a bomb with a fuse to the world leaders in 2012, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once again made himself a laughing stock by parroting nonsensical, hallucinatory words about Iran’s nuclear program and its newly-elected President Hassan Rouhani in the 68th session of the UN General Assembly. Bibi Netanyahu described Iranian President Hassan Rouhani a “wolf in the sheep clothing” and dedicated almost all his unfruitful and boring speech to the statements made by President Rouhani in his address to the UN General Assembly’s General Debate. One may think that the Israeli hawk had prepared nothing to say...Continue reading
Kourosh Ziabari - Middle East is witness to continuous developments these days. Iran's active diplomacy to convince the indispensable 118-member bloc of non-aligned countries to support its nuclear program, the growing isolation of Israel in the European countries and within the academic circles of the U.S., Arabs' fear of losing the power game in the Persian Gulf region, the expansion of illegal settlements of Israel in the West Bank and its unremitting disobedience to UNSC resolutions have turned Middle East into the center of international attentions. Iran as the Persian Gulf region's only non-Arab nation, Israel as the world's sole Jewish state and a host of fragile Arab countries who are being immersed in the waves of West's economic...Continue reading
Kourosh Ziabari - It was reported on November 23 that the Helsinki conference on the nuclear-free Middle East has been called off after the United States announced that it will not take part in the conference. Some political commentators believe that the U.S. distanced itself from the summit after Iran said that it would participate, and it was quite clear that Iran will raise the issue of Israel’s undeclared, uninspected nuclear arsenal of about 200 – 400 atomic warheads. Israel’s nuclear program is America’s redline and it’s like a nightmare for Washington to see that Tel Aviv’s nuclear stockpiles are open to the scrutiny and inspection of the UN atomic watchdog. In order to explore the possible reasons why the...Continue reading
