    AIAP would like to invite you to its virtual general meeting on October 27th, 2021 from 7 to 8 pm.

    Our guest speaker will be Dr. Kazem Alamdari. He will discuss "Military Exercises on Both Sides of the Aras River".

    رزمایش نظامی در دو سوی ارس

    Three incidents in the past year and months in the region have made the Islamic Republic anxious. First, the political and economic proximity of Arab countries to Israel, second, the return of the Sunni Taliban to power in Afghanistan and the consequent expansion of Pakistani influence and domination in the western border of Iran, and third, the liberation of Azerbaijani territories from Armenian occupation after 30 years and the legal restriction by Azerbaijani government of transits for Iranian trucks on Qarabagh (Karabakh) road. Azerbaijan’s success would have not been possible without the military training and advanced weapons of Turkey and Israel. 

    These military exercises followed by an attempt toward rapprochement take place under a situation that Iran’s declining economy suffers from a 50% budget deficit , and the self-made impasse concerning the nuclear deal with the West are among many obstacles for the new president's success. Ebrahim Raeisi who used to oppose any negotiations with the US on the nuclear issue, is now President and cannot easily reverse his position.

    In addition to these problems, the Islamic Republic's policy of regional military expansionism has cost Iranian people billions of dollars to establish forces such as the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iraqi Islamic militia, Islamic Jihadists and to sustain the Assad government in power, all to threaten Israel’s existence.

    The roots and consequences of these unfortunate realities in Iran will be discussed and analyzed in Dr. Alamdari's talk.

    Dr. Kazem Alamdari received his Ph. D. in sociology from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urban, his MA in Educational Administration from Illinois State University, and his BS from the University of Tehran in Psychology. He has taught at various universities, including UCLA, CSULA, and CSUN. Alamdari has published Ten books and numerous articles in English and Persian.

    Dr. Alamdari's speech will be in Farsi. Even though the time provided for this presentation is one hour, in case the Q&A segment required more time, additional time could be allocated accordingly.

    This event is Free to public. At the time of meeting, simply go to the Zoom link here to join the live event.
