Tomorrow morning at 9AM Pacific, Goudarz Eghtedari, a noted Iranian peace activist in Portland, will be interviewing me about Iran on KBOO. You may listen live (audio stream) to the interview. The audio is available for listening (the program begins around 3:00 and my interview around 8:00).
On Monday, September 17th, I’ll be joining Dick Blakney to speak on, Why Both Republicans and Democrats are Wrong on Iran. The event will be at Horizon House, 900 University Street in the Performance Hall at 10AM. We plan on videotaping the talk and I will host it here when I have the file.
We’ll be discussing the latest developments in relations between Israel and Iran; and the harshly partisan tone the debate is adopting in the presidential race. It’s never good when science, religion or issues of war and peace become partisan footballs in political debate. No one makes cool, rational decisions when emotions are boiling over. If Sheldon Adelson and his hundreds of millions have their way, you’ll be forced to decide who to vote for based on whether or not he’s willing to join Bibi in a war against the mullahs.
That’s not good for our Mideast policy, not good for the presidential campaign, not good for anyone.
Come see us on the 17th!
