Koroush Ziabari: Interview with Mideast Youth

Kawthar Muhaib - Mideast Youth: I recently interviewed Kourosh Ziabari, a young yet accomplished Iranian journalist who felt compelled to take action against the vilification of his country and people. His approach was to introduce the world to Iran’s rich culture, history and contributions to the worlds of art, science, etc. - aspects of Iran that many are unaware of.

Many of Mideast Youth’s readers (myself included) would have objections to some of his responses, but they remain valid opinions held by him and many of his Iranian counterparts. Mideast Youth was created with the purpose of fostering a fierce - but respectful dialogue - among the diverse groups in the region, and it’s only through challenging each other’s perspectives that we can learn from each other.
