Trita Parsi gives his opinion on the recent Ahvaz attack, which he believes was not coordinated by ISIS, even though they have claimed responsibility. Instead, it has the trappings of a coordinated political ploy, possibly by Saudi Arabia or the UAE. Parsi and Scott also lament President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement.
Discussed on the show:
- Iran nuclear deal framework
- President Trump’s UN conference
- “The Ahvaz terror attack in Iran may drag the US into a larger war” (Middle East Eye)
- People’s Mujahedin of Iran
