Iran on Pace to Set Execution Record After Nuclear Deal

Apr 27th, 2015

By Hamid Yazdan Panah, April 27, 2015

Much has been made about the supposed benefits of the Iran nuclear deal. One of the most audacious claims has been that the nuclear deal would result in an improvement in the human rights situation inside the country. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact if the last past few weeks are any indication, Iran may very well set a new record for executions committed in the past decade. To make matters worse, the issue is being completely swept under the rug, despite claims that a nuclear deal would give the West “leverage” to promote human rights.

Iranian American Forum, 30 January 2015 The Iranian regime has forged alliance with various political, social, religious and cultural organizations in the US to further its political agenda.

The Human Cost of Business with Iran

Jan 23rd, 2015

Hamid Yazdan Panah, 1.22.2015
The Iran question has dominated policy discussions for nearly a decade. How to prevent the mullahs from obtaining nuclear weapons is no doubt a hot button issue. The general consensus remains that there is no viable military solution to this problem. What we are left with are sanctions and continual dialogue with an undemocratic and barbaric regime, with the hopes of getting them to “behave.” Yet even this is too harsh for some, who object to sanctions against Iran on humanitarian grounds. The question then becomes, what exactly is the humanitarian cost of doing business with Iran?

Aug 12th, 2014

Hamid Yazdan Panah, August 12, 2014
This summer marks the 26th anniversary of Iran’s massacre against political prisoners in 1988. The shock and terror inflicted on the Iranian nation when tens of thousands of prisoners were executed in a matter of months went unnoticed in the international sphere, and unresolved in the Iranian psyche. The legacy of this event has resulted in the survival of a despotic regime, and the stunted growth of a nation.
