About Me 4

As a scholar and independent researcher, I’m particularly interested in issues related to Foreign Policy, International Relations and interrelated fields such as, but not limited, to Economics.

I was educated in Iran, the United Kingdom, France, the United States, and Switzerland. Further, my appreciation of the intrinsic nature of politics and international relations have been  markedly enhanced  beyond the mere theoretical analysis of the unfolding events through my personal research and interviews with  Knowledgeable Actors. As Henry Kissinger had observed:

As a professor, I tended to think of history as run by impersonal forces. But when you see it in practice, you see the difference personalities make. [1]

This is an an important Angle of analysis that has been neglected or at best  treated too often as an Abstract  but needs a more focused interrogations for an analysis.

    VERY INTERESTING INFORMATION OF COURSE I AM NOT A POLITICIAN OR STUDIED POLITICS BUT AS A IRANIAN BORN AND RAISED THERE AND STORIES FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS MORE OR LESS GAVE ME THE IDEA OF HOW FOREIGN POLICY OF WESTERN COUNTRIES CREATED SUCH A CHAOS IN THE WORLD.

    The world must support Iran’s secular politicians, otherwise the country will slide into the arms of orthodox Islamists. Then it will be very difficult for all the neighbors and, first of all, for the Israelis.
