About Nima Shirazi
Nima Shirazi is a political commentator from New York City. His analysis of United States foreign policy and Middle East issues, particularly with reference to current events in Israel, Palestine, and Iran, is published on his website, WideAsleepInAmerica.com.
His articles and commentaries are published on a variety of online and print publications including Foreign Policy Journal, Palestine Chronicle, Mondoweiss, Media with Conscience, Monthly Review, Dissident Voice, Salem-News, Middle East Online, Indymedia, The Palestine Telegraph and Axis of Logic.
Shirazi is widely acclaimed for his precise and accurate analysis of the Middle East events and the U.S. foreign policy.
The world-renowned author and political scientist Norman Finkelstein has praised Nima Shirazi’s work, saying that he is “a very smart fellow and remarkably well informed. It’s worth taking the time to read what he writes.”
Jeremy R. Hammond, political journalist and the editor of Foreign Policy Journal has said about him: “Nima Shirazi is a brilliant analyst whose writing gets right to the heart of the issue without any messing around. Reading articles in not only the mainstream media, but also on alternative and independent websites and blogs, is generally a frustrating experience, for the broad adherence of most (actually, almost all) commentators to a limited manufactured framework.”
