Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Meir Javedanfar (Al-Monitor, The Iran-Israel Observer)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Meir discuss the real winners in Iran’s parliamentary elections, and how Ahmadinejad got in trouble with the country’s religious authorities. Could anything persuade the Supreme Leader to change course? Meir corrects assumptions about Iranian “apocalypticism,” and argues that Obama and Netanyahu are playing a good cop/bad cop routine. Finally, is a Middle East free of nuclear weapons an attainable goal?
