Islamic Republic of Iran is neither the continuation and nor the heir of ancient Persia. If anything, the Islamic Republic is the second Arab invasion that ended the ancient Persian empire. The contempt that the ruling Shia clerics in the Islamic Republic have for the pre-Islamic Iran should be evident for the most novice Iran followers, let alone for the Prime Minister of Israel.—Potkin Azarmehr, Kayhan London
“It can be hard to please those Iranians who still look to me as a princess while I’m living in America. What appeals to Iranians doesn’t necessarily appeal to Americans and vice versa. All I can do is cherish the Iranian values I have, take them with me and appreciate the freedom I have in America to be all the things I want to be. I’m surrounded by fashion risk-takers . It’s a way of embracing my own identity outside of being a part of a political family." —Princess Noor Pahlavi
"The virus is mutating.”— Van Jones forced to re-evaluate praise for Trump ;))

'He became President of the United States in that moment, period. ' —Van Jones, CNN
Asghar Farhadi wanted to lecture the US on an immigration ban - one that the Judicial branch stopped! - while he continues to stay silent on Iran's mass slaughter orchestrated in Syria? Did he think no one would call out that moral hypocrisy? There are many reasons to be a proud Iranian - last nights speech by Farhadi isn't one of them. #AcademyAwards—Saba Farzan FB comment
If we Iranians living abroad particularly Iranian Americans put half the energy we put in fighting Trump into fighting the IRI we would have been rid of the mullahs today.—Roxanne Ganji Iranian American Human Rights and Political activist
The Oscars are supposed to reward the best films and performances of the year. But there are many examples where film buffs look back and think: "Really?" One of the biggest travesties occurred in 1959 when Gigi, a sub-My Fair Lady musical, won nine Oscars. Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, went home with nothing. —Film Critics Ian Youngs & Will Dahlgreen
America is deeply divided, but it’s not divided between fascists and Democrats. It’s more accurate to say that America is divided between the elites and everybody else. Trump’s election was a rejection of the elites. That’s not to say plenty of progressives don’t vehemently oppose Trump. But the crowds of demonstrators share something in common with our political and media elites: they still don’t understand how Trump got elected, or why millions of Americans continue to support him.—John D Davidson, The Guardian
In his 1987 book, The Art of the Deal, Mr Trump explained what he saw as the keys to good negotiating. One of them was to be nice, but "fight back hard" if you think you're being treated unfairly. Another is to never show weakness. "The worst thing you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it," he writes. "That makes the other guy smell blood, and you're dead."—Anthony Zurcher on Donald Trump the "Un-Diplomat"
