Iranians believe the entire process is rigged by the regime & are protesting by tearing up posters of the regime's candidates.


College student asks those not voting in the regime's parliamentary elections on Friday to clap their hands.

Then he asks those who are voting to clap their hands.

The result is obvious.

Feb 18 - #Iran

Simple questions for Sen. @ChrisMurphyCT

Why did you meet @JZarif in secret? If you discussed what you claim, why not do so in public?

How do you explain your ties with #Iran's DC-based lobby group @NIACouncil?

We Iranians believe #NIACLobbies4Mullahs. How about you?
@ChrisMurphyCT @JZarif @NIACouncil Regarding Sen. @ChrisMurphyCT's secret meeting with @JZarif:

"Such a meeting would mean Murphy had done the type of secret coordination with foreign leaders to potentially undermine the U.S. government..."…
@ChrisMurphyCT @JZarif @NIACouncil "The meeting was not officially sanctioned by the U.S. government and appears to have been held in secret to avoid media scrutiny. State Department officials have been clear that they did not play any role in facilitating the meeting or backing it."…

#Iran's leader says that the US will sink like Titanic did: "The Americans decorate a facade to deceive others and to scare some. But, just as the magnificence of the Titanic didn’t prevent her from sinking, the glory of the US won’t prevent it from sinking. And, it will sink".
#Iran leader: Enemies & friends are watching. Enemies want to see result of these economic problems, the Westerners’ deceit in their promises to us, & US pressures on people. Our friends watch worriedly, but we always tell them not to worry. Iranian nation knows what it’s doing
#Iran's leader: Taking part in the elections nullifies many of the vicious plots of the U.S. and the Zionist regime against Iran. These elections repel the schemes and ploys of the enemies of Iran.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas met with #Iran's chief apologist @JZarif last week during the Munich Security Conference.

Zarif was all smiles.

First we heard about this:
"Iranian man accused of violating US sanctions & detained in Germany has been freed and has returned to Iran after diplomatic efforts by Tehran, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said on Monday."

The man flew home with Zarif.…
Then this:
"Iran has freed a German citizen sentenced to three years in jail, the Iranian judiciary said on Tuesday, a day after Tehran said a detained Iranian accused of violating U.S. sanctions had returned home from Germany."…

Sen. @ChrisMurphyCt & other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian FM @JZarif during the Munich Security Conference last week.

Not surprised. Murphy is a regular at sessions held by #Iran’s DC-based lobby @NIACouncil.…
@ChrisMurphyCT @JZarif @NIACouncil 2)
“Murphy is a frequent speaker at the National Iranian American Council, a lobbying group with alleged links to the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

He also criticized the killing of Soleimani, the world's most notorious terrorist, who also killed more than 600 US soldiers in Iraq.

This LIE destroyed Jeremy #Corbyn, Labour's chances of winning the recent General Election ... and handed power, and control over your lives,
to the ultra-right wing Tories.

#Britain's democracy and your democratic rights, in other words, were stolen by the undemocratic, unrepresentative, ultra-right-wing 'Jewish' Board of Deputies.

It will shock you to discover that in a country with a population of more than SIXTY SIX MILLION PEOPLE, there are ONLY 260,000 JEWS!

Feb 16 – A U.S. airstrike in the early hours of Sunday targeted & destroyed a logistics base associated to the #Iran-backed Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) located in eastern Baghdad, says an Iraqi police officer to Al-Ain News.…

(File Photo)
“This attack resulted in numerous explosions. The PMF prevented Iraqi security forces from getting close to their attacked site,” he added. Data shows the site was host to several Iranian IRGC Quds Force officers who were killed during the U.S. airstrike attack.
This airstrike took place immediately after several Katyusha 107mm rockets targeted a military base hosting international coalition troops near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

A businessman who once was export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE was falsely represented as a Strategic Studies Analyst by #ManotoTV, an #Iranian opposition TV! Few days ago, he was also interviewed by #BBCPersian! He has not written an article in his life! Who is he?!🤔
How on earth someone attends in a meeting against #Iran's Islamic Regime with #FakhrAvar & Saghar Kasraee in 2012! And just three years later, he is being appointed as export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE?! It is strange! May be this guy is a double agent?!
Real political & strategic studies analysts such as Mahnaz Shirali, Scientology University Professor might boycott #ManotoTV over inviting people like #FarbodTalaee who pretends to be an analyst (in fact is a businessman who cooperated with #IRGC).

@MSNBC interviewed @JZarif, #Iran’s chief apologist, providing him a platform to spread his propaganda & lies.

“Bad advice to President Trump has led him to make the wrong decisions.”

"The end of the U.S. in the region has already begun.”

Let's dig in.
@MSNBC @JZarif 2)
Putting Zarif’s saber-rattling aside for a moment, Iran’s FM is pushing an old talking point of separating President Trump from his cabinet & advisors.

This is Tehran saying mercy.

Trump’s maximum pressure policy is working & Iran is signaling willingness to talk.
@MSNBC @JZarif 3)
"The end of the United States in the region has already begun.”

This line by Zarif is intended to balance his initial weak stance in order to both save face & have something to say in response to a chorus of orchestrated reactions from the regime’s hardliners.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the Munich Security Conference:
#Iran's missiles have exploded targets in Saudi Arabia & its proxy forces are active in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria.
Tehran also launches cyber-security attacks on Middle East networks.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo:
-#Iran violates Iraq and Lebanon's sovereignty
-U.S. has actively deprived Iran of its diplomatic sanctuaries across the globe.
-We are working with int'l partners to protect the Strait of Hormuz waterway.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo:
When so-called Iranian "moderates" play the victim game, remember their assassination campaigns targeting Iranians on European soil.

#Iran illegitimate election #MyVoteRegimeChange #BoycottIranShamElections
Iranians are ready to move on from this regime and are looking to a #FreeIran. @vonderleyen
But with this election masquerade, it tries to sort of deny that it is indeed a totalitarian @StateDept state.#MyVoteRegimeChange #BoycottIranShamElections
The policy of maximum pressure seems to be working; the Iranian regime has been denied the resources, most importantly oil revenues, with which it has pursued domestic suppression and regional warmongering and interference #Iran #BoycottIranShamElections

I detest the #Iran’s terrorist regime’s sham parliamentary election which has been taken place for past 4 decades! This regime has lost its legitimacy since the day IRGC opened fire to innocent people 40 years ago! Enough is enough! My Vote #RegimeChange #OurVoteRegimeChange
Iranian regime’s elections or better said selections have been a sham process which the candidates are determined by “Guardian Council “ just like Presidential Elections! #Iran #OurVoteRegimeChange #FreeIran
Before, establishment of Guardian Council, Khomeini, was terrified of PMOI popularity and changing the course of his fundamental ideologies! Khomeini had said that he wouldn’t intervene in the elections, fearful of defeat of his candidate, intervened and excluded Massoud Rajavi!

“A fundamental revision of existing legal foundations for military action against Iran that can be undertaken by this and future presidents.”

My take on NEW—and legally flawed—White House report on actions against #Iran and #Soleimani strike.…
2. New White House report conspicuously drops any reference to “imminence” of Soleimani threat.

What's at stake: This means the White House is claiming authority to strike #Iran again with no threat of imminent attack (and with no prior congressional authority).
3. White House report suggests US can hold Iran directly responsible for “support” to militias.

What’s at stake: That's a heck of a low threshold and could boomerang.

Does Trump want US to be held directly responsible for support to Syrian Kurds, for Saudi bombing in #YemenWar?
