On Tuesday, September 9 at 7:30 p.m., there will be a screening of the film IRAN (Is Not the Problem) at First Baptist Church of Palo Alto. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Larry Everest, author of Oil, Power, and Empire, and Paul George, Director of Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

IRAN (Is Not the Problem) is a new feature-length film responding to the failure of the American mass media to provide the public with relevant and accurate information about the standoff between the U.S. and Iran – as happened before in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq.

We have heard that Iran is a nuclear menace defying the international community, bent on "wiping Israel off the map", supporting terrorism, and unwilling to negotiate. This documentary disputes these claims as they are presented to us and puts them in the context of present and historical U.S. imperialism and hypocrisy with respect to Iran. It looks at the struggle for democracy inside Iran and the consequences of escalation and a potential U.S. and/or Israeli attack, and suggests some alternatives to consider.

The 79-minute documentary features Antonia Juhasz (The Bu$h Agenda), Larry Everest (Oil, Power, and Empire), and other activists and Iranian-Americans. There are differences of opinion between many of the voices in the film, but all agree that a war would be unjustified.
