Please respond to the following question in your blog post for this week (due Thursday, July 18th by 5pm). Your blog post should be on this page (our class website), and should be at least 250 words long. Also, you do need to include at least one direct quote from one of the readings for this week (MJS p 437-451, O’Neil ch. 9) (As the question is about Iran, you will most likely use a quote from O’Neil). Please let me know if you have any questions. Also, don’t forget to comment on a classmate’s post from last week or respond to a comment on your post from last week.
Choose one of these two articles:
“Israel Increases Pressure on U.S. to Act on Iran” (you will need to login when prompted, it’s through the UHM library website so use your UH login information)
“Divisions in Iran laid bare by wiretapping” (you will need to login when prompted, it’s through the UHM library website so use your UH login information)
Then answer the following questions: What does it tell you about Iran? About Iran’s institutions? About the current political climate? Does the article reveal anything interesting about Iran’s relations with other countries or the international community more generally speaking?
