A New War in the Middle East?
A Teach-in on Iran

The situation in the Middle East is tense and dangerous. The US wants oil, strategic position and regime change in Iran. Already there are harsh economic sanctions, assassinations and naval patrols of the Persian Gulf. Israel warns of a possible military attack on Iran’s nuclear installations as “all options are on the table.” We must stop a big new war in the Middle East!
