Morocco's Counterterrorism Moment
Articles - March 11, 2015

Articles - March 10, 2015

Unfortunately, that example is also a key jihadist talking point.

 
Iran's Nuclear Weapons Fatwa Is a Myth
Articles - February 18, 2015
 

President Barack Obama said a nuclear deal with Iran is possible if Tehran truly considers nuclear weapons un-Islamic. But is this true? And does it matter?

Articles - February 12, 2015
 

Denying Iran nuclear-weapons capability is not only a means of limiting the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It is also part of a broader ideological struggle that Tehran is taking much more seriously than is the United States.
