Goudarz Eghtedari
Farideh Farhi is an independent researcher and an adjunct professor of political science at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. Her publications include States and Urban-Based Revolutions in Iran and Nicaragua (1990), as well as numerous articles and book chapters on comparative analysis of revolutions, contemporary Iranian politics and foreign policy. She recently returned from several months in Iran. She writes: "Should the US join its European allies in offering to assist Iran with nuclear power generation, this time without preconditions, the resulting negotiations could resolve not only the nuclear issue, but larger concerns as well, an outcome that may well benefit the whole region."

Chris Toensing is editor of Middle East Report and executive director of the Middle East Research and Information Project. Toensing has written for the Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The Progressive and other US newspapers and magazines, and has appeared hundreds of times on radio and TV programs to discuss Middle East politics. He commented today: "What was once beyond the pale -- the idea that the September 11 attacks should have been treated as crimes against humanity instead of acts of war -- has now almost become common sense. If the US had pursued that route, much of the death and destruction that followed September 11 could have been avoided."
