“In truth, many [Iranians] look West… They pine for what we have: connectivity, travel, commerce, science, art, life. Six thousand years of civilization does not fall away easily, and in Iran, it has not. It stands tall amongst its neighbors, and is fascinatingly different from the Arab Sunni world that almost surrounds it… In the long run, Iran, to my mind, is a far more natural ally to the West than ever the Saudis can be.”
– Jon Snow, Gala Keynote Speaker at the 2015 NIAC Leadership Conference, Award-winning Journalist and TV Anchor for UK’s Channel 4 News who has been covering every major news event in Iran since the 1979 revolution.
