In 1979 the shah of Iran was overthrown by a revolution by the rhetoric of ayatollah Khomeini. The regime that emerged was the Islamic republic of Iran they called for the spread of Islamic revolution for every region in the Middle East. With the advent of the Islamic republic and its militant vision the tension between Iran and Iraq from the 1975 Algiers agreement were once again brought into the open. Issues that divided the countries: -long standing cultural rivalry between Arab and Persian civilizations -immediate disputes over frontiers and navigation rights -conflicting interpretations of the role of nationalism and religion in public life One major question was Iraqis northern border -the Kurds took advantage of the Iranian revolution to resume their armed insurrection against the regime of saddam The new Iranian govt refused to close its borders to the Kurds seeking refuge from the Iraq army which violated the terms of the 1975 Algiers agreement

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
