17.marts 2020 Kære læserven! Jeg når ikke altid at poste min artikler fra vores stiftelses hjemmeside, The Transnational, hér. Det kræver tid - som jeg ofte ikke har - at kopiere tekster, redigere, lægge billeder ind og gøre andre ting, ting som du nok ikke tænker på når du blot læser medmindre du da selv…

Stop USAs fortsatte økonomiske terror mod Irans folk

17. april 2019 Forestil dig at der i Europa eller USA i 3 uger have været en katastrofe i form af omfattende oversvømmelser. 28 af 31 provinser var ramt, 10 millioner påvirkede. Ganske vist var færre end 100 mennesker døde men der var mange sårede og resultaterne af de metertykke vand- og lermasser ville få…

Iran respekterer atomaftalen – USA gør 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…

New sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea

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.

Discussing NATO with a former U.S. Ass. Sec. of Defence

A 30 min debate about NATO, Ukraine, Crimea, Yugoslavia, Syria the eternal enemy images and the - obsolete - philosophy on which NATO builds.

Klummer i “Arbejderen”

Arbejderen er Danmarks eneste avis, der giver udenrigs- og globalpolitik en rimelig stor dækning i forhold til andre stofområder og samtidig forholder sig kritisk til de dele af dansk udenrigspolitik, der går voldens vej. Derfor har jeg det fint med at være columnist på Arbejderen. Og den seneste klumme skrev jeg på min rundrejse i Iran og den handler…

De udvalgte fås lidelser i stedet for medmenneskelighed og forsoning?

Statsminister Lars løkke Rasmussen udtaler om det grusomme angreb i Nice: "Vi er alle blevet ramt. Attentatet er ikke blot et angreb på Frankrig. Det er et klart angreb på de værdier, der danner grundlag for vores samfund." Det kan være at han har ret, men alligevel: Hvordan kan han vide det få timer efter at…

At lifting most of the sanctions on Iran

Congratulations to Iran - people, leadership and brilliant negotiation team under the leadership of foreign minister Javad Zarif. But then I criticise that the US Treasury imposed new sanctions the day after - on Sunday January 17 - and I argue that it is a sign of weakness and that the friends of the U.S.…

Comments to the Iran nuclear deal on RT, Russia Today

Kindly chosen this morning to be the first commentator on RT - the world's third largest after CNN and Al Jazeera with an estimated 700 million audience: I'd be happy if you share it!

“Congratulations and thank you, Iran!”

With the breaking news on the nuclear deal announced today - undoubtedly a piece of world history - I wrote up TFF PressInfo # 329 with the above title. It's written, as others before it on this issue, with an emphasis on the characteristics of this conflict that is both obvious and never mentioned: the…

Iran nuclear achievement “victory for civilization”

My comments to Iran's PressTV in the morning of July 14, before the nuclear deal with Iran was announced. This is a taped interview with a summary text: “This is a triumph for talks, for diplomacy, for dialogue instead of warfare and it is an important movement for the world not only for Iran or…

If so, let the U.S. isolate itself

Iran says nuclear deal depends on lifting of sanctions | Reuters This is a timely reminder to those who believe the Iran nuclear deal can be reduced to and hinges upon the deal between Congress and Obama. Says Iranian President Rouhani: "We are in talks with the major powers and not with the Congress," Rouhani…

Ignoring May 9 in Russia – another Western conflict-management blunder

The Guardian reports that Western top leaders are going to snub the commemoration in Moscow of the 70th Anniversary of the Allied Victory over Hitler Germany - on May 9. That they don't want to attend a huge military parade is quite understandable, neither would I. But remembering the more than 20 million Russians who…
