Washington Post: The world’s attention is focused on Russia, but a critical deadline in the nuclear talks with Iran is fast approaching. On July 20, time will be up — or will it? — for a final deal on Iran’s illicit nuclear program.

The Hill: “Don’t give them an excuse to crack down on dissent,” is a favorite sophism spread among foreign-policy elites, lazy bureaucrats and big-chair academics. Dictators love it. The Obama administration remained shamefully silent throughout that tragic crackdown on Iranian dissent. 

Philadelphia Inquirer: The Iranian regime had appointed Hamid Abutalebi as its new envoy to the United Nations, a decision that triggered a strong rebuke from Congress because of Abutalebi's role in the 1979-81 hostage-taking of American diplomats in Tehran.

New York Times:  The death penalty is an abhorrent attempt to sate an irrational cultural bloodlust. According to a 2014 report from Amnesty International, “only nine countries have continuously executed in each of the past five years — Bangladesh, China, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, U.S.A. and Yemen.”

The Hill: On the morning of April 17, more than 100 prison guards and intelligence agents carried out a brutal raid at Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison. Many were severely injured and some were sent to solitary confinement. Eyewitnesses said bus carrying the wounded prisoners was "drenched in blood."
