Understanding Iran – Dror Eydar (Israel Hayom)
(dailyalert.org, Apr. 17, 2014)

Iranian-born David Menashri, a professor of Middle Eastern studies, is one of the most prominent experts on Iran in Israel. Speaking of the interim agreement with Iran, he said:

    “The U.S. did not understand that by the laws of the Persian bazaar it could have gotten much more, because Iran needed the U.S. more than the U.S. wanted Iran. And the U.S. did not collect the proper price.”

    “Iran is in trouble…. Iran has two million [university] students. Who is going to hire them? They know how people in the world live.”

    “The young people of Iran are the most secular in the Arab world. They no longer believe the slogan that Islam is the solution.”

    “Neither Israel nor the Americans are the existential threat to the Iranian regime; it is the young people of Iran.”
