Birth Name: Montel Williams
Birth Place: Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Williams made his dramatic debut in the TV movie "Perry Mason: The Case of the Telltale Talk Show Host" (NBC, 1993) and later starred in the short-lived CBS series "Matt Waters" (1996) as a concerned and caring high school teacher. While his daytime show thrived, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and he began to actively manage the disease. He occasionally continued to dabble in acting, most notably with a recurring part on a few episodes of the military series "JAG" (CBS, 1995-2005). In 2008, "The Montel Williams Show" was canceled, and he moved on to a stint on the soap opera "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009).

Given how nasty the rhetoric over the #IranDeal has become, I am concerned some have lost sight of a critical reality: It's a mistake to think the majority of the Iranian people, nor in it's entirety the elected government, supports the positions of a small group of hardliners that hold a disproportionate amount of power in that country. Yes, we see staged chants of "death to America" and "death to Israel" and they are as repugnant to me as they are to anyone else. But I think it unfair and unwise to impart the rhetoric of a few onto the many.
The Iranian people made a clear statement in 2009 at GREAT personal risk to themselves - many who participated in the 'green revolution' were jailed and remain jailed.
I think we must remember that it was the Iranian people who suffered most under sanctions, not the regime - which simply prioritized destabilizing activities in the region over its own people - a condition that would likely remain with or without a deal. I think the sanctions regime truly cemented Iranian public opinion - the Iranian people want jobs, they want engagement with the rest of the world, they want better lives for their kids. Do I think they want us to sweep in and install the American system of Government tomorrow? Of course not. Do I think that the Iranian people, if free to do so, would chose some form of representative government chosen by free and fair elections? I do.
I'm not making a statement on the deal. I'm neutral. I'm making a statement on the principle of constructive engagement. It's not a new idea, and history has and likely will remember President Nixon's policies on China as a historic step in the right direction.
We must always remember that we have MANY issues with Iran's government. Those issues are not with the Iranian people themselves. We can't expect the average Iranian to adorn themselves in our flag and march in the street tomorrow. My hope, separate from this deal is we can continue to engage the Iranian people and, through that, realize we aren't so different after all.
SINCE THIS ISN'T ABOUT THE DEAL, LET'S FOCUS ON THE PRINCIPLE RAISED - IS IT FAIR TO IMPART THE BEHAVIOR OF THE FEW HARDLINERS ONTO THE IRANIAN PEOPLE AS A WHOLE?
