Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium

Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening.


I am delighted to be here with you this evening, and to have this opportunity to address the Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium.  I especially want to thank the MSE Co-Chairs Mohammed Elsayed, Danielle Calderone and Nikki Ackerman for welcoming me to speak tonight.


The focus of this year’s Symposium series is particularly important to me and my compatriots in Iran.  As your series explores how technology and communication allow for new interaction; as you discuss how the progressive youth of today are affecting political movements – these matters are being put into practice by the youth of Iran today to express their discontent and push for a change of regime.


We are here tonight to discuss a fundamental aspiration of millions of Iranians:  The quest for freedom, democracy and human rights. This is an issue of epic proportions, but given our short time together this evening, I wish to share with you my thoughts on the path, rather than the obvious merits of our collective desire to achieve this goal.


However, before we discuss the future of my nation, I would like to briefly review with you some its recent, tragic history.

IRI's leaders couldn't hope for a better figure to make occasional, minimalist efforts toward the middle-aged exile scene. RP really is made-to-order as a guaranteed loser.
