New Column: Iran's Shifting Strategy

I have another New York Sun column out today: Iran's Shifting Strategy.

Fouad Ajami, the Director of the Middle East Studies Program at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, sent a very nice note to the NYSun's editor about it, which was forwarded to me:


Nibras Kazimi’s column, “Iran’s Shifting Strategy” (New York Sun, May 12), is one of the most insightful readings of the Middle Eastern landscape to appear anywhere in a very long time. Its analysis is as subtle and shrewd as the ways of the region. The linkage he makes between Iraq’s success and Lebanon’s troubles is nothing short of brilliant. The Sun, and Nibras Kazimi, are to be commended for cutting through so much of what has been said about these matters of late. An essay that should be required reading by all those who want to understand, let alone comment on, the contest between order and mayhem in Arab and Islamic lands.

Fouad Ajami liked it.
That can't bode well. I don't think I will even read it.

Great analysis Nibras. As usual, you are head on.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards.

P.S. Nice note from Fouad Ajami; he's one of my favorite Middle Eastern analyists; you two would make a great duo!
