Iran’s aspirations amid global quarrels

The Islamic Republic of Iran is in an extremely bad shape, with setbacks in almost every issue set - health, economy, military ambitions, foreign policy. Yet for Tehran, all is not lost, as it awaits the turn of events in the American political season. For the time being, as it has not fulfilled its threat to avenge the death of Quds Force General Qassam Soleimani, it seems as if Iran is determined to wait out the contest between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, in the meantime using its Shiite Iraqi proxies to try to drive the U.S. out of its Baghdad embassy. Iran has also been unhappy but relatively quiet regarding the normalization of relations between Israel and Arab countries. So where are the Iranians at this juncture?

Guest Mr. Meir Javedanfar, Iran lecturer, IDC Herzliya. Also joining us from another location in central Israel is Dr. Menahem Merhavy, research fellow, Truman Institute, Hebrew University. TV7 AnalystAmir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
