EU words, words and words on the Iran nuclear deal: What about action?

January 13, 2020 European allies of the U-S have turned down a request by the American President to leave the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, the JCPOA. France says it remains committed to the Iran deal, and will continue to work with other parties. Britain has pledged to remain committed too. Prime Minister Boris Johnson [...]

Iran’s foreign minister is right about weapons preventing peace

August 22, 2019 Dr. Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, yesterday spoke at SIPRI - the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. (At the moment of writing nothing comes up on its homepage when searching his name). I was asked by Iran's PressTV to comment on a couple of selected points made by Zarif - which I [...]

Risikoen for krig mod Iran

Risikoen for krig mod Iran

16. juli 2019 Arbejderen er tilsyneladende den eneste danske avis, der er interesseret i "andre" synspunkter p√• denne konflikt end de g√¶ngse mainstream, styret af amerikanske interesser og nyhedsbureauer. Det er jeg selvsagt taknemmelig for. H√©r kan du l√¶se hvordan jeg ser p√• hele historien og bed√łmmer risikoen for at en krig bryder ud - [...]

Iran respekterer atomaftalen – USA g√łr det ikke

11. februar 2019 Idag er det 40 år siden millioner af iranere med sine demonstrationer afsatte Shahen af Iran og den islamiske revolution overtog magten. Det kan man have mange meninger om - og derfor har TFF idag udsendt en analyse af Dr. Farhang Jahanpour - Iran At Crossroads On 40th Anniversary of Its Islamic [...]

President Trump moves towards war on Iran

With his speech today - half an hour ago - U.S. President Trump has taken a huge step into uncharted territories. (Here on video). One that implies a 60-75% risk of leading to a US attack on Iran. Behind him stands the hardline militarists whom he has himself appointed. ‚Ä® Secondly, neo-conservative individuals and think tanks [...]

You’re invited to the Nuclear Denial Party

By Jan Oberg Lund, Sweden - Hiroshima Day, August 6, 2017 Welcome to the Nuclear Denial Party!! Since marketing, omitted and fake news have - to a worrying extent - replaced knowledge and ethics, why not celebrate that the media have omitted every mention of Hiroshima Day today? Why not celebrate that all the responsible [...]

Does the U.S. have anything constructive and benign to offer the world anymore?In this comment on PressTV I list a series of arguments against these new sanctions which were passed by the US Senate two days later.

Iran on nuclear deal and nuclear-free Middle East

I had the pleasure and honour to comment on the Iranian defence minister's views on the nuclear deal, on a nuclear-free Middle East, terrorism and more.

Good: EU will honour the deal with Iran

Happy to speak positively about the EU foreign policy chief's commitment to stand by the nuclear deal with Iran - a clear signal also to Trump. That's good - the alternative could very well be war.

Why on earth renew old sanctions on Iran?

It's destructive for all! It's difficult to see this as rational policy-making. It's more of an indication of the grumpy super-power feeling that it's losing influence and credibility. In addition, if this goes through it will only strengthen the hardliners in Iran and weaken the reformist circles.

“Shadow World” – on your tax money

I've felt deeply touched by Johan Grimonprez' brilliant and frightening documentary "Shadow World" which is based on Andrew Feinstein's book with the same name. I want to share it with my readers and here is all about the book and the movie. It was shown in November 2016 by Swedish Television with Swedish text but is due to [...]

Klummer i “Arbejderen”

Arbejderen er Danmarks eneste avis, der giver udenrigs- og globalpolitik en rimelig stor d√¶kning i forhold til andre stofomr√•der og samtidig forholder sig kritisk til de dele af dansk udenrigspolitik, der g√•r voldens vej. Derfor har jeg det fint med at v√¶re columnist p√• Arbejderen. Og den seneste klumme skrev jeg p√• min rundrejse i Iran og den handler [...]

Obama is urged to make closer ties with Iran

In an open letter - hardly mentioned by the Western mainstream press, a group of high-level and rather "Realpolitik" US diplomats, scholars, military and politicians urge President Obama to take concrete steps to intensify the co-operation with Iran. There are obviously concerned that the U.S. shall be perceived as an obstacles for the implementation of the JCPOA, [...]

Don’t underestimate Donald Trump

Don't underestimate him, count him out or think he is crazy. NBC‚Äôs ‚ÄúMeet the Press‚ÄĚ half-hour interview with Donald Trump is interesting. He has passion and a very fast mind, he seems to have integrity in the sense that he cannot be bought for money by others and he doesn't mind having standpoints that conservative republicans [...]
