The solution to the escalating woes in the Middle East and North Africa

By Farid A. Khavari

Whether or not ISIS (Dahesh) was responsible for the events of June 26 in Kuwait, Tunisia and France, this is just the beginning of a new wave of uncontrolled chaos that will be detrimental to Kuwait and the entire region. Before long, Iran may find an excuse to get involved in Kuwait, directly or indirectly, to "protect" their Shia brothers, just as they have in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. In any case, if ISIS (Dahesh) gets the upper hand, it will be the end of kings, sheikhs and presidents and nations in the Middle East and North Africa. If something is not done immediately, this chaos will escalate into regional war, which many U.S. politicians want.

American and European leaders are now openly discussing regime change for Iran, incredibly proposing to replace the Shia-mullahs with the Shia-Mujahedin-e-Khalgh! Of course, this would involve many years of war, which no one can win, and would be a disaster for Iran and the entire region.

It is true that the first step toward peace and stability is to replace the Shia-mullah regime in Iran. However, war is not the way. We need to have a solid and comprehensive plan whereby regime change be accomplished peacefully by the Iranian people, within six months, and without any outside military action. Such plan requires an economic plan that would benefit the entire region. The new regime would be peaceful, and Iran would be a good neighbor and friend for everyone seeking peace, security and stability. The new regime in Iran would focus on economic development and on spreading prosperity and peace rather than terror and violence.
