A literary essay reflecting on a picturesque, yet painful, trip to Teheran for one American Jewish woman.
Iran has threatened Jews for decades. But Laura Shapiro Kramer had a very different experience in the land where the Purim story takes place.
A Turkish Airlines flight carrying 20 Israeli passengers made an emergency landing in Tehran.
America’s secret talks with Iran began more than a year ago, new reports say. And the White House’s point woman was none other than the president’s confidante Valerie Jarrett.
Im nationalen Diskurs Israels spielen die Sicherheitskräfte gewöhnlich eine überdimensionierte Rolle. Zwei dieser Organe - Armee und Mossad - umgibt eine geradezu legendäre Aura. Nach dem Sechs-Tage-Krieg wurde jedoch das für die innere Sicherheit zuständige Organ Schin Bet zur zentralen Größe in den Diskussionen der israelischen Entscheidungsträger. Seit die israelischen Truppen 1967 einen triumphalen Sieg über die Nachbarländer davontrugen, überwacht der Nachrichtendienst eine zahlreiche, feindlich gesinnte Bevölkerung in den von Israel besetzten Gebieten. Es ist die Aufgabe von Schin Bet, diese Bevölkerung in friedlichen Zeiten wie in Unruheperioden unter Kontrolle zu halten.
A stunning collection of Iranian Jewish artifacts comes to Los Angeles this month. The exhibit was complicated by tricky talks over U.S. sanctions against the Islamic republic.
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has unveiled an upgraded, more accurate version of a short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile at a weapons exhibition in Tehran that was shown on state television. At the event, which marked the national day of Iran’s defence industry, Ahmadinejad also unveiled several other new Iranian-made weapons, such as a naval diesel engine, a mortar launcher, a military intelligence system, and tactical SUVs. Ahmadinejad said the weapons weren’t for what he termed an “aggressive context,” but rather to be used as a deterrent against attack. The unveiling comes as the debate continues to rage in Israel over whether to launch a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

This is not the man Iran wants dead. This man has a very loud pro-palestine message. I believe the plot for his assassination is more linked to an Israel false falg on US to strain relations between Iran Saudi Arabia and USA. Not between USA and Saudi relations. The Zionsits false falg is working to plan and the FBI has foiled nothing and is following the Mossad bread crumbs as planed..
