Episode 19: Tzvi Kahn of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies

By Jackson Richman

Tzvi Kahn is a Senior Iran Analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

His work has appeared in The Hill, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Post, National Review, The American Interest, Foreign Affairs, World Affairs, The Forward, Middle East Quarterly, and other outlets.

Kahn discussed President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran deal and its implications for the region and U.S. national security.

“I think the reimposition of sanctions is a very critical move,” Kahn said. “One of the major flaws of the agreement was that we gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief to expand its aggression across the region, particularly in Syria, where the Assad regime, with military and financial support from Iran, has continued to commit atrocities against its own people.”
