In an insightful article, the Jerusalem Post lines up Israeli experts to explore the implications of the ISIS attack in Tehran.

The article provides some excellent insight into contemporary political challenges in Iran.

So far, the Jerusalem Post seems to be way ahead of the major Western mainstream media sources in its analysis.

It will be interesting to see the reaction of the Trump government in the US. Will US and Iranian interests combine against terrorism?
