The Passionate Attachment
June 27, 2012

In a Washington Institute policy analysis entitled “Iran Confident As Sanctions Tighten,” Patrick Clawson and Mehdi Khalaji claim that Tehran “sees itself in a strong position relative to the West and therefore believes it has little reason to be forthcoming in nuclear negotiations.” In addition to calling for “additional sanctions” to help change “this mindset,” the Israel lobby think-tankers conclude with this suggestion:

Finally, while Iran’s leaders are no democrats, they are influenced by public opinion. The chances of getting through to them will therefore improve if the West is able to communicate to ordinary Iranians the realities of their country’s situation. This need underlines the importance of penetrating the regime’s electronic curtain, as President Obama emphasized in his March 20 address to the Iranian people.

Penetrating Iran’s electronic curtain by communicating to ordinary Iranians? Sounds like a job for Jared Cohen and friends.

  1. WINEP is an arm of Israel Lobby AIPAC. Netanyahu has never been interested in America having negotiations with Iran, Syria, Egypt or any of other countries it doesn’t like. Zionist regime is using Tehran’s nuclear program to divert world attention from more Palestinian land grab. Netanyahu wants America to fight another Israeli war in Iran.

    However, the US ‘crippling sanctions’ against Iran are not working. In fact, more and more countries are finding out America’s double standard regarding Iran’s nuclear program vs Israel’s 400 nuclear bombs.
