Thank you for sharing this, especially coverage of US withdrawal from the Iran-deal and how Democratic lawmakers have foolishly contributed to the current situation. For those interested, fast forward to the 7:40 mark.

I dig The Forward (formerly known as The Jewish Daily Forward). It's a left leaning(ish) publication but they do a good job mixing it up with a variety of viewpoints. I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in getting a sense of what's being discussed in the Jewish-American community.

I appreciate you taking the time to share Marco; thank you. At face value I think #7 would resonate more (for me) if the verbiage was slightly revised. I will give this more thought and if something clicks, will share it on this thread.

That said, I really feel where you are coming from with your ... Read more

I love this - thanks for sharing Marco! We also have a topic called +Self-Empowerment where future related posts could live. I found #5 ('More concern about all who are alive, not just a few') to be really interesting. I immediately thought of those who care about human rights, but selectively apply ... Read more

Nah, I can tell you (as a Board Member) that the decision had nothing to do with the JCPOA or Trump becoming POTUS. Conversations re: succession preceded Trump. After 17 years with Trita at the helm this is a natural progression for an organization that has given so many in the Iranian American comm ... Read more

Oh come on, seriously? You've long complained that he's forever President, and now that he's moving on, you're still complaining. With all due respect, your understanding of how nonprofit's are governed (bylaws) and their election process is wayyyy idealized.

Over 50 dead. It's a massacre.

Israel has now shot killed more Palestinian protestors today, 52 men, women, and children so far, than every other day of protest combined there this year.

Several of the most respected human rights organizations in the world have just declared these acts to be war ... Read more

The loss of life is now over 40. Disgusting.

Celebrating the US embassy opening in occupied Jerusalem, precisely while IDF troops are murdering scores of innocent, unarmed Palestinians in Gaza:
The appalling juxtaposition of these two jarring events, unfolding in synchronicity, screams total disre ... Read more

Indeed. All the more reason for Iran to clean up the systemic corruption...or not.

At times it felt like Netanyahu crawled in Trump's skin to deliver the announcement. Surreal.

Watching his announcement was unbearable. Had to turn it off upon hearing, “Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie”. Fact check, Iran has been in compliance. The IAEA has certified Iran’s work 10 times.

What a flippant comment. The Iraq war wasn't “the end of the world” either but it is widely regarded as the worst foreign-policy mistake in U.S. history.

Other results:

- $1.06 trillion spent

- As of June 29, 2016, according to the U.S. Department of Defense casualty website, there were 4,424 t ... Read more

And likewise it's a good bet that the US gov't has ramped up spying efforts of Iranian Americans. Caught between two hostile governments, it's usually the people (diaspora and those living in Iran) who suffer the most.
