Israeli politicians continue to deploy increasingly outrageous language in the service of undermining rapprochement with Iran.
Neoconservative columnist Lee Smith calls the Obama administration’s Iran policy anti-Semitic, something Ali Gharib says is absurd—“a stunning accusation.”
While D.C.'s Iran hawks are unrelenting in their push for more sanctions, human rights activists working inside and outside Iran feel that sanctions are impinging on their work. Ali Gharib reports.
Calling U.S. Foreign Service Officers “Arabists” working for their “clients” in the Arab League goes too far and insults diplomats’ professionalism and service, says Ali Gharib.
Ali Gharib explains where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went wrong in his Iran-dominated address to the United Nations General Assembly.
Despite Hassan Rouhani's snoozy U.N. speech and the absence of a handshake between him and Barack Obama, Iranian-American diplomacy is progressing at breakneck speed, writes Ali Gharib.
