"As an Iranian-American, both sides of my split identity rejoice at a nuclear deal" - Ali Gharib
By birthright, I would have had every reason to forsake the Islamic Republic and hope that talks to resolve the crisis over its nuclear program would fail. My family left Iran in 1979 – just after the Islamic Revolution overthrew the Shah – when my mother, pregnant with my sister, fled the country while several members of her huge but tight-knit family were in revolutionary prisons. I owe the Iranian government nothing, and could have easily said, Screw them.
