In this series of articles, I will discuss the 8-year war between Iran and Iraq during the 1980's, and the history behind it. In order to cover the many aspects of this historical event, I will focus on a few points in each article.

The Iranian regime called this conflict the “Imposed War” or “Holy Defense”. However, the question remains, was this war really an act of defense, or was it imposed on the nation?

A recent article by the Daily Beast is making headlines and further exposing the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) for what is, a tool to promote economic ties with the mullahs in Iran.

The expose, entitled The Shady Family Behind America’s Iran Lobby , ran this past Tuesday provides an exhaustive background on the connections between NIAC, the Namazi family, and the Iranian regime, underscoring how these three seemingly disparate interests relentlessly pursued the removal of sanctions on Iran, each for their own benefits.

September 1st marks the second anniversary of horrific massacre against Iranian refugees residing in Camp Ashraf Iraq, which left 52 residents dead. The massacre was carried out with brazen violence and shocking brutality. This incident was part of a series of attacks against Ashraf going back to 2009, none of which were ever investigated. This attack was a shameful reminder of the failures of the international community, particularly the United States and the United Nations, to protect innocent lives in Camp Ashraf.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, an organization that has made its mark in Iranian and in fact world history since its creation. Many Iranians, including myself, have had the honor of learning from the PMOI, and indeed the PMOI has made incredible contributions to the history of Iran. In commemoration of this anniversary and in order to recognize some of the significant achievements of this organization here are five significant achievements of this organization.
