Can the U.S. dilute its stance on Syria?

Can the U.S. dilute its stance on Syria?

21st September is the U.N. declared "International Day of Peace" and the countries around the world have one more chance this year to uphold peace and stop warfare to walk on the path of peace and nonviolence.

Iran which was in spotlight in the recent past has gradually transforming itself these days to stop its nuclear operations for destruction and its President is vowing to assure peace at all means. Today, the… Continue

What to do instead of bombing Iran?

Here is a lecture I held at the World Peace Academy in Basel, Switzerland. I show here some pf my photos from my Iran trip, I outline why the present Western policies on Iran are counterproductive and, third, what must be done instead. It's only a hint - so much can be done to both prevent a looming war and to build trust.

I'd be happy to receive your comments and for your sharing it throughout your system.…

What's The Problem With Iran?

What you mostly hear in the Western mainstream media is extremely biased.

This newTFF PressInfo 1-2013 outlines why a) what you hear is basically one-sided, demonizing and missed the relevant factors and the wider regional apsects - and b) what should be done instead. Because, if the present US-EU-NATO policy is maintained for long, it is bound to lead to war - whether intended or not.…

Embracing Iran

Circumventing Convention: Including Iran in the Syrian Peace Process

Difficult political situations usually require thinking outside the box. It is a pertinent time for the international community to adopt that spirit in the Syrian conflict. It is neither Bashar al-Assad nor the Syrian rebels the ones holding the reins of the continuous deterioration of the Syrian peace process. The driving force behind the downfall of this process is pessimism, a highly contentious tool to use as a means to an end, especially when the envisioned end is… Continue

Dear friends

Here is 19 constructive proposals in the direction of war-prevention and long-term peace.

It contrasts sharply the present discourse which is dominated by intellectually lazy and anachronistic talk about war as an option. War on Iran is not an option!

Is Peace Getting in the Way of Our War Plans?

What a bizarre circumstance this is.  The irrational Iranians are behaving too reasonably

The unmovable Iranians seem to be compromising too readily.

This past weekend, the United States and other major nations finally spoke with Iran. In 10 hours of talks (or 5 with translations), minus a lunch break, Iran agreed to a framework for ensuring that…

The Screams that You May Hear: Iranian Women Use Videos to Say No to War

From Change for Equality

This was originally posted on Change for Equality. We were excited to hear these Iranian women call for peace on International Women's Day last week.


War does not happen in the course of a day. There is no need for war to land in our cities with a bomb. The shadow of war is also frightening. The possibility of war too changes the lives of women. Every day that we…

Tonight I lost the last bit of sympathy for President Obama

This is President Obama's most nasty, bellicose, one-sided and perversely power-arrogant speech ever. The Nobel Committee ought to revoke its Prize to him, but of course it won't.

This cynical man speaks about the goodness of even more "crippling" sanctions on a country of 75 million people of which 25 % are children under 14.

At every single aspect he touches upon, he takes the wrong path: towards making war irreversible. There is no excuse that it was for AIPAC. In contrast to…
