Iran-US Relations

Sharif Behruz discusses Syria, US and Iran with BBC World Service - Newsday 

Sharif Behruz: Unfortunately, with this policy, the US will eventually concede to the will of the Russians and Iran to keep Assad’s reign in place. The Saudis and the Turks already know this, and they are trying to mend fences with Bashar Al-Assad through Russia and other Assad allies.

Iran’s clerical rulers will not view the American invitation to the Syria talks as a gesture on the part of the US, rather as a sign of US weakness in the wake of Iran’s increased support for its allies, Assad, Houthi...Read more

Sharif Behruz of Iran Roundtable lays down his  objection to the recent deal struck with the regime of Islamic Republic or any deal that will be made with this menace regime, from the perspective of a persecuted Kurdish-Iranian.

Any deal that strengthens and empowers this regime to further persecute, marginalize and discriminate its people should be rejected, and Iranians of al strides overwhelmingly reject appeasing to this regime. Remember, the million march in 2009 protests, Obama, either with them or with us.  This deal is another drag in the back of Iranians who are struggling...Read more

this regime cannot be at peace with the outside and at war with its own people.  We are rightly concerned that for as long as this regime is in power, the people of Iran will not attain their rightful place in the...Read more

Dear Mr. President:

Iran Roundtable, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of democracy and human rights in Iran, has the honor to present its compliments to Your Excellency and to present this letter expressing our concerns that the current nuclear negotiation may distract the US from the grave human rights violations and the alarming surge in executions by the Islamic Republic of Iran under President Hassan Rouhani.

Iran Roundtable, (Washington, DC) - Recent nuclear negotiations between the West and the Islamic Republic of Iran  has raised concerns among ordinary Iranians that  the alarming human rights violations under President Rouhani are being ignored  in...Read more

 In June 2009, President Obama sent a letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader asking for “engagement.” This move, coupled with Obama’s abandonment of the civil revolt in Iran that same month, sent a comforting message to the ruling Khomeinists: The United States is retreating from containment and will not support regime change in Iran. That undeniably emboldened Tehran to go on the offensive in the region after less than a decade of status quo.Read more

In November, major world powers struck an interim deal with the regime of Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), giving Tehran an estimated $7 billion in sanctions relief in return for steps to halt the regime’s nuclear activities. The deal called for negotiating a full agreement within 6 months, possibly a year, and gradual loosening of sanctions that many rightly believe has brought the regime to the negotiating table.Read more

Senator Mark Kirk

“The State Department should not aid and abet a European appeasement policy by pressuring the Senate to delay sanctions while the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism races toward a nuclear weapons capability. The international community should judge Iranian leaders by their actions, not their words. So long as Iran continues to pursue a nuclear weapons capability, build longer range ballistic missiles, sponsor terrorism around the world and abuse human rights, the Senate should impose maximum economic pressure on Iran to give diplomacy a chance to succeed.”Read more

Obama-Rouhani & Munich Pact

Regrettably, today the people of Iran are silenced to put up with the brutal, dictatorial and clerical beast of Islamic Republic; however the free world should not.  As the West prepares to tango once more with this cunning regime, we should be mindful of what happened 75 years ago, exactly today, when appeasement was chosen over belligerence in Munich.

Dealing a final blow to this regime might not be the most amusing or even the most feasible option of all at the moment; nevertheless I firmly believe that the Middle East, and for that matter the world, without the fanatical Islamic...Read more
