The Paradox of the PMOI

The Paradox of the PMOI

One simple word which encapsulates the sum of the aspirations harbored by Iranians throughout the world, both those in exile and those living, and suffering, in the land of their birth.

Horatius at the Bridge (SION Conference: Part IV)

The first gathering of the Stop Islamization of Nations Congress took place on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the city-and nation-targeted by pan-Islamic jihadists on that clear September day.

There are a number of lessons to be gleaned from the rapidly imploding criminal case against the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

E Pluribus Unum?

E Pluribus Unum?

Multiculturalism, the notion that all cultural norms and practices are equally valid, was popular in the latter half of the twentieth century.
