Since my earlier tweet on #IranProtests, I have been asked what the #Biden administration should do that would be constructive and supportive of the protestors, who may have been triggered by food prices but whose anger is much deeper and more profound. Here are 3 ideas: 1/5
1) @WhiteHouse should announce that, in accordance with longstanding policy, US pursuit of a new nuclear deal in no way constricts our right and duty to speak out in support of #Iranians exercising the universal right of free speech and assembly. 2/5
2) @POTUS should task #NSC to coordinate all-of-government support to help Iranians access the internet, circumventing #Iran’s draconian restrictions. This should include outreach to tech companies to assist/support online access for people of #Iran. 3/5

After the 1979 Revolution & while in exile in Panama, the Shah of #Iran spoke with David Frost on January 17, 1980

Unknown then was that this would be the Shah’s final interview

He passed 6 months later

For the first time, I have clipped & captioned it all below


Shah #Iran:

“When I committed…the mistake of changing the Amouzegar government & precipitate the liberalization program, I wanted to create…a coalition to form a national government representing all shades especially the opposition…I tried very hard…but [to no avail]”

DF: [Did Sharif-Emami initially do the right things or not?]

Shah #Iran:


It was surrendering on all fronts to everyone: opening…jails&giving freedom to all [while declaring] martial law

It was a mockery. We had officially…martial law but…not [in] practice”

she warned that Iranian leaders remain "intent on retaliating in the US for the Jan. 2020 killing of former IRGC Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani.”
Abizaid testify before a Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee hearing to discuss security threats, Sept. 21, 2021, Capitol Hill.
@ODNIgov @ODNI_NIC @mvhaydencenter

Abizaid further warned in written testimony of #Tehran’s ongoing efforts to “build operation
capacity against U.S.-based organizations and people.”
"The threat from #Iran also faces us overseas, particularly in #Iraq, whet Iraqi Shia militant groups pose the most immediate threat to US interests" per #NCTC's Abizaid

Western media spent years leading up to the 1979 Revolution demonizing #Iran’s Shah, while giving soft interviews to his enemies, providing platforms to spew anti-Shah propaganda
In late 1978, one such interview occurred with Khomeini from his French headquarters

** Note reporter’s biased language & subliminal messaging, subtly glorifying Khomeini, creating a heroic ‘David VS Goliath’ narrative:
• “Center of resistance to the Shah of #Iran” [UNDERDOG]

• “Symbolizes the religious opposition... & guides the movement” [A PROPHET]

• “Living modestly... subsisting on a Spartan diet of prayer & little food” [AESCETIC/DISCIPLINED]

• “Receiving scores of #Iranians” [POPULAR]



“The French police are providing [Khomeini] heavy round-the-clock security”

The @nytimes misses what’s really happening in #Iran. #Iranians have been calling for the overthrow of the Islamic Republic, not dismissal of “local officials.” Also water shortages have been caused by the regime’s corruption more than any other issue.
The regime’s excessive dam building is a major problem. So is diverting water from Khuzestan to other locals in order to profit corrupt regime officials.

The popular rebellion in southwestern #Iran is concentrated in Khuzestan & Lorestan. But it’s not an “Arab” issue. This is a lie spread by the separatists, their foreign backers, and their DC lobbyists...
Khuzestan is inhabited by Arab speakers, Persian speakers, Lurs, Bakhtiaris, and other smaller minority groups. They are all water deprived & repressed by the Islamic Republic.
Does the regime treat Arab Iranians terribly? Yes. Are there some separatist sentiments? Yes. But I have not seen any evidence that the rebellion is motivated by separatism. In fact the different ethnic groups have been calling for unity to overthrow the regime.

Was just in a Clubhouse room called “Does NIAC represent the Islamic Republic in America?” Not sure if it’s really worth debating at this point lol
But many people from #Iran were listening & I’m glad they were able to obtain important info from the speakers (I just listened)
As the Islamic Republic teeters, more and more #Iranians will want to know how this regime has stayed in power. We’ll find out a lot more once the regime is gone. For now we must all stay vigilant as this regime and its supporters still stand tall.
And let’s not forget that Zarif created a very effective network of supporters across the world: businessmen, journalists, “human rights activists”, you name it. A few years ago I would have never imagined that the #IranLobby would become so influential in DC

Wow major anti regime unrest in Ahvaz, #Iran.
I hope American officials like @ABlinken and @jakejsullivan are aware how explosive #Iran is right now and how sick #Iranians are of the Islamic Republic.
These anti regime demonstrations took place earlier today in Soosangerd.

It's #Nowruz --- the Persian New Year!

What a wonderful time to talk about Africa in Iran: Momma Africa's babies are in Iran: The Afro-Persians

'We are Iranians'.

Rediscovering the history of African slavery in Iran 🇮🇷 .

Ali ibn al- Hassan Shirazi, the Black Persian Ethiopian prince who founded the Kilwa Sultanate in East Africa.

Ali ibn al-Hassan Shirazi was one of seven sons of the Emir Al-Hassan of Shiraz, Persia, his mother an Abyssinian (Ethiopian) slave.

"Upon his father's death, Ali was driven out of his inheritance by his warring brothers. Setting sail out of Hormuz, Ali ibn al-Hassan, his household and a small group of followers first made their way to Mogadishu, a commercial port on the East African coast.:

The secret #war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
Part 2 - (11 Tweets)
And back to the oil tankers - if indeed #Israel hit these tankers, then it is likely that the marine force & the special units, above and below the surface of the water, worked overtime. 1/11
But no #Iranian ship sank or caught fire among the damaged ships, acc to @WSJ. The Iranians said nothing, nor did they admit that their ship had been hit. Neither Israel nor the Americans until yesterday.

The secret war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
The #smuggling axis and the money laundering- hundreds of millions of dollars that pass through 🇸🇾Syria to the #terrorist organization (#Hezbollah) in 🇱🇧Lebanon. This is how the "oil war" is conducted.
1/25–Part 1
#Iran's oil smuggling into Syria is not a new issue. They have been in place for several years, even before the #Trump administration imposed sanctions on Iran and on Syria.
The question facing Western intelligence was how #Syria pays Iran for the oil it receives. 2/25
As of May2018, when the #Iranians were barred from transferring funds in the international financial system, they had trouble getting the proceeds or payments for the oil they smuggled to China, North Korea, Syria & other countries like Turkey where oil was smuggled inland. 3/25

#Hezbollah is examining live accurate ballistic #missile fire in real conditions in northern #Syria. Israel is taking care to destroy precision kits even as they make their way from #Iran to Lebanon and pass through the lands of Iraq and Syria. 1/12
🇮🇱Israel is deeply concerned about Iran's and #Hezbollah's precision project, in which #Iran is helping the Lebanese #terrorist organization convert hundreds and thousands of missiles, at various ranges, into ones that will be accurate and not statistically accurate. 2/12
#Israel frequently attacks conversion plants for these missiles on #Syrian soil, especially in the Matziaf area in the north of the country. 3/12

Shipments of #missiles and special equipment continue to flow to Hezbollah. At sea and on land, #Iran is doing everything it can to further strengthen #Hezbollah, the #Houthis and the Iranian militias in Syria.
The #Iranians manage to regularly deliver to its consumers, such a special shipment that includes anti-aircraft missiles and equipment designed for the missile upgrade project held by Hezbollah last month at Rafiq al-Hariri Airport in Beirut.
For years, foreign intelligence systems have exposed the transfer of Hezbollah weapons and fighters to and from #Lebanon aboard Iranian civilian planes.

#Iranians in #Syria: Three key issues were at stake: the establishment of the Iranians and their emissaries on Syrian soil, the indoctrination of the Syrian people through Shiite clerics who had been flown from Iran, and the takeover of the Syrian arms industry. 1

The presence of the #terrorist & intelligence arm of #QudsForce on Turkish soil. How #Turkey enables Iranians to operate as a central base country, for the logistical & operational operation of QF & #Iranian intelligence vis-à-vis target countries in Europe & the Middle East.
Iranian intelligence sees it as #Iran's "operational backyard" vis-à-vis the Middle East and Europe, as #Turkey has a number of clear advantages, including:
- proximity to Iran and relatively easy mobility of operatinal it and through it (air and land)
- Iranian citizens do not need a visa to enter the country
- This geographical location central and attractive holding secret meetings with #terrorist organizations throughout the world (Middle East, Europe, South East Asia)
