There are many Iranian run charities in the US that are not very transparent, to say the least, and have telling relations with #Iran’s lobby arms in the US, including NIAC & PAAIA.

They’re also quite close to important senior US officials.

ISCC—found in 2004 to provide money for children in #Iran and other countries.

ISCC’s co-founder is Fereshteh Tavakoli, mother to Farnaz Fassihi of The New York Times that is constantly criticized for pushing Iran’s talking points in her NYT pieces.
3)
ISCC has been raising serious money.

However, according to Charity Navigator, the ISCC has “a failing [transparency] score. This overall score is calculated entirely from a single beacon score, and 100% Finance & Accountability.”

The text says:
"Thanks to god, a few days ago, a UAV was downed by the "Sons of the Iraqi Resistance"

This is the #Iran|ian UAV "Mohajer 4"

[1/3] Some thoughts re #FATF Decision to retain 🇵🇰 on Gray List:

1. It's OK. This, too, shall pass.

2. Partly our mistake (slow to realize seriousness) & partly circumstances (geo-politics, "Absolutely Not") have brought us to this point.
[2/3] 3. We need to get our house in "order" - fast! (economy, civ-mil relations, political stability etc.)

4. We need an aggressive foreign policy outreach. Our neighborhood first & then aggressive outreach to #China, #Turkey, #Iran #Russia etc.
[3/3] Lesson: we must learn to walk without crutches & stand on our own feet. Like individuals and families, only those nations are respected that are financially independent. Remember how the world jumped in to liberate Kuwait in first Gulf War?

1)
Can #Iran and/or its proxies deploy “dirty bombs” with suicide drones?

Tehran knows it will not be allowed to produce conventional nuclear weapons.

One option is using suicide drones in “dirty bombs” attacks by its own forces and/or proxies.
heshmatalavi.substack.com/p/can-iran-and…
2)
#Iran has been investing heavily on its drones fleet, especially suicide drones, as new weapons to compensate for its aging air force.

Iran’s initiative was funded greatly by Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal and the resulting $152 billion in credit & cash.
3)
A dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device is a speculative radiological weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives.

The purpose is to contaminate the area around the dispersal agent/conventional explosion with radioactive material.

With Zarif gone & #Iran's regime probably not having any new talking points for now, Tehran's network of apologists/lobbyists, especially the NIAC crowd, are back to claiming U.S. sanctions are depriving the Iranian people of medicine and medical care.
You might say they're citing a UN report

Reminder—"Russia gave $50,000 to UN expert who wrote report calling Russia a victim"

"The UN report makes the astounding claim that the Russian government of Vladimir Putin is a victim of human rights violations."
unwatch.org/russia-gave-50…
You might also say Johns Hopkins University has also tweeted the report.

Reminder:
Narges Bajoghli of Johns Hopkins University has quite a close relationship with Zarif, #Iran's former foreign minister and the father of Tehran's lobby groups in the West.

Let’s talk about a new fake poll from the University of Maryland and Iran Poll claiming, as always, that #Iran’s people love/trust the regime and its officials, and fully back the mullahs’ policies of pursuing nuclear/ballistic missile programs.

Credit: @IranianForum
2)
—78% have favorable viewpoints of #Iran’s regime President Ebrahim Raisi, dubbed the “Butcher of Tehran.”

—76% are certain Raisi will live up to his promises.

—72% are very/somewhat satisfied of the Iran’s June 2021 elections outcome.

The poll also claims the majority of Iranians back the regime’s nuclear/missile programs, support resistance in the face of America’s bullying in nuclear negotiations, and also support Hezbollah (terrorism).

HOT OFF THE PRESSES! My team @CNA_org just finished a pair of reports looking at the #psychology of #disinformation. We sought to answer two main Qs: 1) How does disinfo work on your brain? 2) What, if anything, can #DOD do about it? Summary findings in this THREAD. 1/n
@CNA_org The first report answers the first question: How does #disinformation work on your brain?

You can find the full version of the report here: cna.org/CNA_files/PDF/… 2/n
@CNA_org We identified four key psychological principles related to the absorption & spread of #disinformation: initial information processing; cognitive dissonance; the influence of groups, beliefs, & novelty; and the role of emotions & arousal. How do these work? 3/n

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.
