‘We’re Learning How to Be Free’

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi talks to Richard Stengel, Bobby Ghosh and Karl Vick of Time about changes in the Mideast, the Israel-Gaza ceasefire and his time in the United States. 

President Obama has been very helpful, very helpful. And I can say, really, that his deeds coincide with his intentions. We’ve been talking together about the cease-fire. That’s very important. Then we can talk about differences between Palestinians and Israelis. It’s not easy. It’s very difficult. Both sides are talking about differences. We want them to talk about similarities … We are now doing this job as much as we can.



Obama must offer a 'grand deal' with Iran on its nuclear program

Writing in Christian Science Monitor, Seyed Hossein Mousavian lays out his view of how Washington and Tehran can end their deadlock over Iran's nuclear aspirations. 

...direct talks between Iran and the US on broader issues are essential. Rapprochement will be possible only if, for the duration of engagement policy, the US dual-track policy ceases and hostile actions, sanctions, and other forms of coercive pressures are put on hold. And Tehran and Washington must also agree on a comprehensive agenda for reconciliation. That agenda must include all bilateral, regional, and international issues – demonstrating the “entire game plan” while implementing it in phases.
