Looking Ahead to Iran Over the Weekend

Friday, June 26, 2009

The rhetoric between the White House and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is heating up, with the Obama administration accusing Ahmadinejad of trying to blame the U.S. for the recent unrest. Joining The Takeaway is Riz Khan, host of the Riz Khan Show, on Al Jazeera English, to talk about what we can expect to see in Iran this weekend, with the start of the holy prayer today.

"How much would change if Mir-Hossein Mousavi were to come in? There's no guarantee that there's going to be major change either way."
— Riz Khan, of Al Jazeera, on the recent Iranian elections

Riz,

What is your assessment of the reports regarding potential ethnic explosiveness in Karachi. Al Jazeera has confirmed fluid movement of Taliban members in and out of Pashtun neighborhoods in Karachi. Is violence shifting from religio-political to ethno-political with al-Qaeda heading off to Somalia and Yemen?
