Far from comedic...

by Shifteh Ansari on

From what I have seen so far, Muhammad Sahimi is knowledgeable and fair in his presentation of information and analysis. I also believe the same of Mr. Amir.

There are serious grievances about the two governments' actions and rhetoric, words that have not only not reduced, but have exacerbated and escalated the tension.

Extremists on both ends must be told to shut up and avoid this war. This war will only have two winners: Israel's and Iran's most extremist and repressive elements. The losers are people of Israel and Iran, who will lose their homes, their kin, and their limbs, and will not have peace in their lives for a long time to come. It is truly horrifying to also mention that other people in the region will not escape the harm of such military engagement.

Whoever has been applauding and cheering this tension, whatever country's citizens they are, must and will be brought to trial in the event that there is a war.

Sahimi's politics like his media is porous

by anglophile on

He is strongly advised to stick to his day job before the MFD lays him off. His VOA antics were not enough that now we have to suffer another comedic show?

we are on the subject of Israel

Israel's 'Vali Faghih' demands Iran's 'Annihilation':

Shas spiritual leader calls on Jews to pray for annihilation of Iran During his weekly sermon, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef says Jews should pray for destruction of the enemies of Israel, with an emphasis on Iran and Hezbollah.

جناب سهیمی: بنده معمولا از شیکر خوریای زیادی و خودم رو نخود هر آشی کردن
پرهیز می‌کنم....امیدوارم که این فضولی‌ها رو به بزرگی‌ خودتون
ببخشین...مطمئنم که حضرتعالی با حفظ متانت و خونسردی و با آشنایی به
نقاط ضعف و قوت حریف نابکار در این جلسه حاضر خواهید شد.....امیدوارم
بتوانید با پرهیز از برخورد احساساتی، با اتکا به مستندات تاریخی، و با
استفاده استادانه از وقت محدود از پس این دوستمان که یکی‌ از "دانه
درشت"‌های صهیونیسم کثیف و جنایتکار است، بخوبی بر بیایید.......آشنایی به
خاستگاه طرف مربوطه نیز چندان بی‌فایده نیست...
