Iranian Dissidents Visit Israel, View Iran after the Nuclear Deal


After the Iran nuclear deal, a group of Iranian dissidents met with researchers at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs to discuss Iran in the post-agreement era, as part of the Center’s long-term project analyzing the Iranian role in the Middle East. While the dissidents who visited Israel cannot be identified, two Israeli experts who met with them – Dr. Avi Davidi, Director of the Jerusalem Center’s Iran project, and Brig.-Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, former head of research of IDF Military Intelligence – describe the outcome of the meeting.
