The Alameda Public Affairs Forum is pleased to present Professor and Author Stephen Zunes, speaking on The United States and Iran: Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism and Regime Change, at the Home of Truth Center, 1300 Grand Street, Alameda on Saturday, July 22nd, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Dr. Zunes will be discussing how the United States can best address the dilemma posed by the Iranian government's nuclear program, its support for extremist
groups and its suppression of human rights. Can the United States be a credible advocate for democracy and non-proliferation while continuing to back dictatorships and nuclear weapons states in the region? What alternatives might there be to doing nothing or going to war. Professor Stephen Zunes will explore these and other questions as well as examining the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, the impact of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the role of the international community, the concerns of Israel and the struggle for democracy within Iran
Stephen Zunes has emerged as one of the most forceful and articulate critics of U.S. policy in the Middle East. He is professor of Politics and former chair of the Peace & Justice Studies Program at the University of San Francisco and a senior policy analyst and Middle East editor for the Foreign Policy in Focus Project. He is the author of Tinderbox: U.S. Middle East Policy and the Roots of Terrorism (Common Courage Press) and scores of articles regarding the Persian Gulf, Israel/Palestine, Western Sahara, terrorism and Islamic movements. Dr. Zunes has made frequent visits to the Middle East, where he has met with top government officials, academics, journalists and opposition leaders.
Following the presentation there will be time for discussion and questions from the audience. The program is free but donations at the door are accepted.
