ABSTRACT
The article deals with news on Iran's response to the United Nations after the Security Council demanded that Iran stop its nuclear initiatives. Iran stated that the nuclear initiatives are for energy not military purposes. However, it did not say that it would cease its nuclear activities. It should be noted that Iran has signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. A "Washington Post" article states that the Security Council passed a resolution making a suspension mandatory and threatening Iran with economic sanctions upon failure to comply by August 31, 2006. Using the issue as a lesson idea, students should be asked to express their opinion on why they think the U.S. would be opposed to a government governed by religious leaders and religious principles instead of the popular will of the people.
