Rob Sobhani on Foreign Policy
Sobhani said he would focus on bringing foreign investment to Maryland. "The way I believe we grow our economy is, once again, we link our economy, Maryland's economy, to the international economy and we go after specific projects," Sobhani said, noting that he supports seeking funding for cancer research and new homes in Baltimore.
A: It boils down to two fundamentally different worldviews. The Iranian worldview since the Revolution of '79 has been that the U.S. and Israel are dominant factors in the international scene and should be opposed and challenged. In the case of Israel, the Iranians believe the challenge should be met with guns and blood. The Saudi position has been that the world and the region should work together through dialogue. Conflict should be resolved within the framework of stability and calm. For example, oil should not be a tool in this process. Tehran maintains the opposite perspective. The fundamental premise of Shia ideology is victimhood. That is how the Ayatollah Khomeini came to power. That is how the relationship between Iran and Hezbollah is portrayed on the streets of Lebanon and in the Palestinian Territories.
