"And now the system is ready to strike back. Khamenei still controls all the relevant institutions and the Guards hold sway over much of Iran’s economy. It is hard to see how even Rouhani’s most modest policy ambitions can be implemented."

Mr Takieh is pushing hard for:
- discarding the Iran nuclear deal
- Bringing back all the sanctions against Iran
- Even going further and place an embargo against Iran in Persian Gulf by US forces

Who pays the bill for his services?
- Israel lobbey through Council on Foreign Relations
What is his role?
- and enabler for warmongers.

Iraj Khan,

MULLAHS HAVE GOT TO GO.
Don't even waste your time to save Islamic monsters from falling down. You won't get anywhere.
Did you see Manchester's Islamic attack ?
Islam as a "Political religion" is doom to fail throughout the world.
Modern world,, including Israel, U.K and U.S are standing to defeat Political Islam. Unlike previous administration, Trump administration have clear idea about Islamic terrorism and political Islam.
Based on what I read in your blog a while back, it is better for you to join million Iranians who are standing by Shahzadeh Reza Pahlavi. If the situation change, you will be the first person Hassan Dai will come after. If you take a side with million people and our dear shahzadeh Reza Pahlavi, You will be immune from Hassan Dai harm because MEK are very brutal to people who are associated with Mullahs.

No. We want them to GO away. Right now they are taking a huge dump on the people, the country, and it's fast fading future.

But we get your point...

But where Iranian freedom is concerned, he makes a good point no? Also consider this: Who pays the Bill for Iran's Disservice to Iran? The Iranian people!

I think we would all prefer to have Israel pay the bills of Mr. Takeyh than to have the people of Iran pay the Bills of an Iranian government that is unreasonably hell bent on starting a regional war by provoking Israel into taking the first shot.

Because we don't need to be knocking on Israel's door by supporting, Ironically a dictator almost exactly like the Shah. Nor do we need to develop nuclear missiles to threaten Israel with.

So it seems that Iran is getting what it asks for. Trouble. The dangerous brinksmanship here, is that Iran is messing with powers that are FAR more powerful than Iran is, which is reckless disregard for public safety and the security and prosperity of the Iranian people.

So I'll gladly let Mr Takeyh feed his family on an Israeli salary now.
