I am a Clinical Neuropsychologist. I was born and raised in Tehran Iran .I came to the U.S in 1976 to study psychology. With time decided to hang my hat here and became a U.S. citizen.
My areas of interest in psychology are varied. However I mostly work with stroke patients. I minored in history and Anthropology in college. I am an assistant professor of psychology in Northeastern Ohio Medical University. I have written articles, books, and Invented treatments for serious neurological conditions.
I fought in Iranian revolution, Iranian politics and American politics. However, the worst event of my life was a recent bitter divorce which knocked all of my energy out of me .Any more I am focusing on Science and writing history and leave the fighting to younger people. I guess at the age of 60 one can give permission to himself not to do things he does not like any more

The Iranian People's Struggle for Freedom, Part IV. Socialism (1) The blowback from the severe dictatorship of the last 100 years is the main cause of the attraction to socialism. Although the socialist movements consisted of very small cells, the long border with the Soviet Union and the strong desire of Russians to get to the Persian Gulf modified these sporadic movements to serious uprisings which could have easily turned Iran into one of the Soviet Republics.

Demonstrations in Tehran: It was the day of "Ashura" - the most sacred day of the Shiite sect of Islam. Ashura is a day dedicated to those who knowingly choose martyrdom for the cause of God and would not give in to those who are in position of power. This Ashura was not the usual mourning of the saints who were killed 1400 years ago. This year there was a real rebellion against the forces of evil.

Iranian Political Evolution; From Dictatorship to Corruption to Revolution During my high school years I easily learned that the land of Iran is different than other countries. I learned that there are many unwritten rules that you have to obey, and never ever talk about politics around people who are not family .I learned that loose lips send you to dungeons with animals called torturers who beat the essence of humanity out of you.

Shiites, Sunnis and George Bush In dealing with the current problems of the Middle East, obviously it is quite important to understand the differences between Shiites and Sunnies. Furthermore, with the addition of the American presence, this situation has become more complicated. Unfortunately, there is very little in-depth analysis of this topic, leaving the impression that these are just a bunch of primitive people who just like to fight.

Harb vs. Ghazveh; Why the U.S.is not winning in Iraq The term for war in Arabic is "harb" like battles of Second World War. But the most common form of fighting among Arabs is not a "harb" It is a "ghazveh", which means raid. That is when a small group of men attack the other group fast and get away with whatever they can. Historically Arabs have been better in raids than battles, and that was the battle plan that Saddam laid.
