Let’s talk about another shameless @WashingtonPost effort – written by @erinmcunningham – rushing to the aid of #Iran’s regime in the face of U.S. sanctions.

IMO, we shouldn’t expect anything else from WaPo but acting as Tehran’s mouthpiece.

Here’s the main concerns of WaPo & coincidentally, #Iran’s regime.

“maximum pressure campaign”

Let’s see who the
“economists”
“analysts and experts”
“people familiar with the transactions”
“observers”
“Policy analysts and sanctions experts” cited in this piece actually are.

Let’s talk about yet another @ForeignPolicy piece shamelessly promoting an appeasement approach vis-à-vis #Iran’s regime.

This is written by @michaelkugelman.

Why do I say “another @ForeignPolicy piece shamelessly promoting an appeasement approach vis-à-vis #Iran’s regime?”

Here’s a thread debunking another FP article written with the same narrative by two former Obama admin officials.
3)
And here’s another, written by @EllieGeranmayeh & @yarbatman, two #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists, running a Tehran narrative of asking (read begging) Europe to rescue them from Trump’s firm policies.

Let’s talk about a recent Foreign Policy piece written by two former Obama admin officials, Philip Gordon & Robert Malley, with the sole purpose of condemning Trump’s firm #Iran policy & calling for a return to appeasement.
foreignpolicy.com/2018/11/14/tru…
2)
Here is why I am personally very suspicious of these two former Obama admin officials.
3)
The writers voice their main concern that U.S. sanctions “might even lead the Iranian people, facing a collapsing economy, to rise up and sweep aside the Islamic regime.”

IMO, this shows how the authors favor an appeasement approach vis-à-vis #Iran's ruthless mullahs.

A thread on the ‘atomic archive’ that #Israel spirited out of #Iran. Reactions to the story tend to be shaped according to one’s support for, or opposition to, the JCPOA. This is natural, but unnecessarily contentious. 1/6
Debate is also skewed by one’s access to the documents. Those who have seen the trove or been briefed on the content, are impressed by their scope. Those who haven’t note that the general thrust was already known, and that it was known Iran lied. 2/6
I believe the documents underscore the need for the limits and verification brought about by the JCPOA. More important right now, though, is the need for answers to the new questions raised by the archive. 3/6

US Special Representative for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey:

Our objective in #Syria includes the departure of all #Iran-backed forces.

Syria only controls half of the country & most of the int'l community considers the regime as a pariah.
2)
US Special Rep. for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey:

You cannot have a defeat of ISIS without a significant change and end in Iran's influence in this country.
Iran significantly facilitated the rise of ISIS.
3)
US Special Rep. for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey:

The (Iran-backed) Syrian regime is toxic to its own people & neighboring countries.

The blueprint aiming to safeguard trade with #Iran's regime against U.S. sanctions is facing utter collapse as no EU state is willing to host the mechanism.

This is absolutely humiliating for @FedericaMog.

"EU diplomats said the main European powers - Germany, France and Britain - would raise pressure on tiny Luxembourg to host the so-called Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)..."
3)
"The stakes are high, for Iran has warned it could scrap a 2015 accord on curbing its nuclear program reached with world powers, including the big EU trio,..."

My take:
Shame on the EU for failing to adopt a firm approach vis-a-vis #Iran's regime.

Let’s talk about @France24 becoming a mouthpiece for #Iran’s regime as @SanamF24 interviews Kamal Kharrazi, foreign policy advisor to @khamenei_ir.

The piece is full of lies & a look at the interviewer’s background is quite interesting.
2)
The tweet reveals the main purpose of this interview, using the phrase “alleged foiled terror plots in France and Denmark, which were blamed on the country’s intelligence services.”

This is a talking point provided by #Iran’s regime to its apologists/lobbyists.

#Israel showed its limitation in comparison to what #Palestinians can do:
1. No logo on al-Alam IED flag indication a unification of Palestinian groups against #Israel
2. Revealed possession of Guided anti-tank missile Kornet: Israel's nightmare in Lebanon 2006

3. #Palestinians fired 400 rockets knowing how difficult is to smuggle these into #Gaza. A #Hezbollah exchange of experience, using a small part of its capability and wait for development
4. Palestinians used a new rocket revealing more capability

5. The cause of #Palestine is back on its track. #ISIS kidnapped the world attention for 5 years and #Hamas lost its main cause during the world attempt - but failed - to change the regime in #Syria.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today to target four Hizballah-affiliated individuals who lead and coordinate the group’s operational, intelligence, and financial activities in Iraq.
home.treasury.gov/news/press-rel…
2)
Hizballah is a terrorist proxy for #Iran that seeks to undermine Iraqi sovereignty & destabilize the Middle East.
US is targeting terror facilitators who smuggle oil for Iran, raise funds for Hizballah & send fighters to Syria for the IRGC-Qods Force on behalf of Soleimani.
3)
Sigal Mandelker, US Treasury Under Secretary:
“Treasury’s concerted actions aim to deny Hizballah’s clandestine attempts to exploit Iraq to launder funds, procure weapons, train fighters, and collect intelligence as a proxy for Iran."

Let’s talk about the latest @NYTimes piece - this time written by @ntabrizy – repeating the lie that ordinary Iranians are losing access to medicine.

2)
FYI, back in May when U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, I debunked another a @NYTimes video presented by @ntabrizy.

That is why I consider her to be another #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist.
3)
For more knowledge about @ntabrizy, here’s a photo of her after interviewing @jzarif in his Manhattan home.

Notice how she is standing underneath the image of Iranian regime founder Khomeini & current supreme leader @khamenei_ir.

Reports indicate shells fired from Gaza injuring five Israelis

My take:
#Iran has ordered its proxies - Hamas & Islamic Jihad - to launch these attacks to save face as sanctions begin to cripple its regime.
#BREAKING
Raw footage provided by IDF shows the skies of southern Israel checkered with dozens of rockets being fired from Gaza.
More footage provided by IDF & officials saying 80+ rockets were fired from Gaza; several being intercepted.
IDF says "terror targets" are being hit in the Gaza Strip.

@AlJazeera takes its gloves off & becomes a mouthpiece of #Iran’s regime.

#FakeNews

Of course, the contributors are four #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists:
@mashabani
@tparsi
@nargesbajoghli
@barbaraslavin1

aljazeera.com/programmes/lis…
2)
It becomes ridiculous when the piece uses the phrase #Iran’s “alleged missile and nuclear programmes.”

Even the Iranian regime itself acknowledges it has such programs.
3)
Here the authors make a U-turn & acknowledge #Iran does have a nuclear program.

And they show how they miss the Obama years…

After seeing @tparsi tweeting this about a new so-called UN report, I obviously became suspicious and knew I had to take a good look.
ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/…
2)
I won’t get into the criteria of this so-called report as I have already debunked the author before in another thread after two #Iran apologists/lobbyists, @AliVaez & @tparsi, tweeted about a previous report of his.
3)
#Iran's regime has destroyed the country's economy for 39 years & counting.
Over 80% of the populace is under poverty, according to Deutsche Welle Persian.

And this was published in March, before Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Multiple bodies of international law ban the use of starvation as a weapon of war. Under the Rome Statute, it’s a war crime. #iran #sanctions
Art 8 ICC: “[i]ntentionally using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare by depriving them of objects indispensable to their survival, including wilfully impeding relief supplies ...” constitutes a war crime in international armed conflicts.
Geneva Conventions Article 54(1) of the 1977 Additional Protocol I provides: “Starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is prohibited.”
