New York, NY - Following a two-year effort, both the Jewish Daily Forward’s editor-in-chief and reps for Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance have confirmed that a reporting visa has been secured by the New York-based paper, allowing a Forward staffer to report first-hand what Iranians are thinking about its July 14 nuclear agreement with the U.S.

NYTIMES.com (http://nyti.ms/1HvwR1D) reports that according to ministry reps the visa, which was issued on July 20, was valid for 30 days, but Forward editor-in-chief Jane Eisner disagreed, insisting the visa had only a 7-day lifespan.

Regardless, Eisner noted, The Forward’s reporter has already come and gone from Iran and is back in the U.S.

Calling the nuclear agreement “of huge importance to American Jews,” Eisner said the purpose of the assignment was give readers an “in-depth, objective look at what real Iranians think.”


Eisner said the content related to the Iranian trip will appear next week both in print and on the paper’s website.

the Forward is as Jewish as the UJA, which means not Jewish at all.

I'm more interested in the photograph than in the article. Maybe the journalists at the Forward will tell us what Iranians think of the High Priestess of WOW and her coven of WOW girls.

Looking forward to reports praised the Mullahs to high heavens. Maybe that'll take their collective empty minds off orthodox-Jew bashing for a bit.

I always thought that older Yiddish speaking Americans that were born prior to 1945 are the only ones still left reading this newspaper. Because Chasidim don't really buy this paper (its maybe sold at 1 newsstand in Boro Park) and nobody else reads Yiddish besides for old polish Jews etc...

But isn't that a diminishing clientele? what keeps them in business? Anyone knows?
