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.…

Iran, the EU and what we should have learned by now

New on TFF's new blog...

I'm pleased to alert you to a new comment on what increasingly looks to me as a build-up to yet another terrible unnecessary war.

iran's bomb

Ex: Jonathan Power. Subject: Iran’s bomb will not be the last. Date: November 8th. 2011. The panic button on Iran is being pressed again. A report by the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), suggests that Iran has taken more significant steps towards developing a nuclear weapon. At the same time the warnings from Israel are coming thick and fast, reminding us that if necessary Israel will bomb Iran’s nuclear research facilities. All this is grist for the mill…
