“Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies: Iran, the U.S. and the Twisted Path to Confrontation” (Bookreview)

..Slavin details Iranian overtures that were either ignored or rejected by the United States. She has useful comments on the role of Israel in promoting a hard-line U.S. policy, but does not give this the comprehensive treatment it deserves.

Slavin’s book is well informed and will give both novices and specialists a comprehensive overview of its topic and a balanced approach that could be a basis for a more productive U.S. policy toward Iran by a new administration.

One thought on ““Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies: Iran, the U.S. and the Twisted Path to Confrontation” (Bookreview)

  1. Het probleem blijft de onvoorwaardelijke steun van Amerika aan het Zionistische verlangen MACHT gelijk te stellen aan RECHT.
    Iran benadrukt, net als het Irak van Saddam Hussein, ‘het principe‘: zionisme is een onrechtvaardige ideologie die spot met het rechtvaardigheidsverlangen van onderdrukte mensen.
    Op de website van de door de Iraanse staat gecotroleerde http://www.iran-daily.com/1387/3195/html/national.htm#s324954 wordt dat standpunt weer eens benadrukt:
    “We are the leading advocates of freedom of expression and our beliefs are not politically motivated, rather they are our ideological standpoint,“ he (Ahmadinejad) pointed out.
    Ahmadinejad underscored that Iran is not opposed to any race or ethnic group, but opposes crime and aggression.
    “Christianity and Judaism do not confront us as the enemy seeks to portray. We believe that all religions have presented a portion of Islam in compliance with the capacity of the human race and the entirety of Islam was presented by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH),“ he said.
    Iran does not seek to expand its territories and cares for all humankind, even Americans and the down-trodden who have settled in the Palestine occupied territories in search of flaky dreams. “However, Iran is opposed to the corrupt and criminal Zionism,“ he told the senior diplomats.
    De vraag is of je andere landen kunt verplichten het zionisme ‘goed’ te noemen.
