In fact, hundreds of Middle East scholars, including eight former presidents of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), numerous emeritus and distinguished professors, and plenty of endowed-chair holders, will likely warn students of the “unmitigated disaster” created by the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA and warn about the dangers of an impending “full-scale invasion and occupation” of Iran, as they wrote in an open letter to President Trump.
