Congressional Forum on Islam: Mullocrats and Revolutionaries
“Iranians don’t wake up in the morning from dreams of nuclear weapons and begin denying the Holocaust,” journalist Afshin Molavi told a Capitol Hill panel on April 30. He said that for ordinary Iranians, financial worries and the needs of their families dominate individual concerns. Molavi spoke to Congressional staffers along with Dr. Jon B. Alterman, director of the CSIS Middle East Program, as part of the CSIS Congressional Forum on Islam. The discussion, entitled “Mullocrats and Revolutionaries,” examined shifting political power in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
