Workers in Ahvaz are protesting the Iranian regime for current situation and chanting “Palestine and Syria are the cause of our misery.”
People are protesting the regime for its expenditures in the region which has crippled the economy.
Protests are becoming more political. Protesters in Ahvaz are chanting “death o the oppressor.”
They are referring to A.Khamenei and Rouhani cult who have the power in Iran.
More than half of Ahvaz population are on the streets chanting “death to the oppressor and down with the dictator.” #Ahwaz
WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated Saud al-Qahtani, his subordinate Maher Mutreb, Saudi Consul General Mohammed Alotaibi, and 14 other members of an operations team for having
a role in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. These individuals are designated pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, to target perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption.
.@guardian's correspondent،@SaeedKD deleted all his pre tweets,linking #JamalKhashoggi death to his interview with him about @IranIntl,&other tweets threatening Salman of KSA.Deleting impression he was in danger.IRI's ambassador also claimed IRI is protecting him.Any explanation?
Tasnim news agnecy run by the IRGC claims @guardian's correspondent, @SaeedKD is held in one of safe houses by police in the UK .It appears Tehran is running the show here. So far no explanation from Guardian.
Are IRGC&IRI ambassador cliams true?@ukhomeoffice@metpoliceuk
It seems @guardian's journalist was in contact with Iranian officials about his source. On 4th of NOV, Rouhani's advisor claimed that The Guardian will reveal its source in a week time. Which @SaeedKD's tweets confirm the possibility of Saaed's ties to the Iranian regime on this.
1.) I'm going to remind the @RT_Erdogan regime of Turkey's dirty hands of silencing those who speak out against its corrupt regime!
They have killed 25 journalists & not a one has been talked about or even been a news story like #JamalKhashoggi cpj.org/data/killed/eu…
Let's take a look at #Iran's own history of "organized crime."
2) "In terms of politically motivated killing of dissidents, intellectuals, and opposition members, 1980-1998 represents the darkest & bloodiest period in the last 150 years of Iran's history. Thousands of political prisoners were executed in that decade." pbs.org/wgbh/pages/fro…
On 17 June 2012 @raif_badawi was arrested on the charge of “insulting Islam through electronic channels”. He had a liberal discussion forum in Saudi Arabia. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes & a fine. On 9 January 2015 he received the first 50 lashes. #FreeRaif
Senior @hrw official @sarahleah1 is proud to appear at a MEMO event in honor of #JamalKhashoggi. MEMO is an Islamist website; its director is a well-known extremist, and the site often features antisemitic &pro-terror material.
I've written about Khashoggi's connections to MEMO here -- turns out that some of MEMO's reports on him &his own writings there expose him as a virulent Israel-hater &ardent Hamas supporter haaretz.com/world-news/.pr…
Why does Trump accept Saudi Arabia’s ludicrous story about #JamalKhashoggi’s murder? It’s not because of strategic partnership, oil, arms sales or MBS’s BS. It’s about squeezing Iran. My take: bit.ly/2R98bJj 1/7
Undermining Iran’s economy tops Trump’s foreign-policy agenda. He needs KSA oilfields to make up for the Iranian oil removed from the market. 2/7
Those who claim the kingdom is a vital ally vis-à-vis Iran confuse the direction of dependency. It is Saudi Arabia that feels threatened by Iran’s missiles, proxies and soft power. The US faces no threat from Iran, which cannot project power beyond its neighborhood. 3/7
Here's Dr. #FarshidHakki talking about the need for social justice, fighting corruption, ending poverty & fighting all types of damages caused to the society.
Reports indicate this jurist/regime critic was brutally murdered & mutilated by #Iran's Intelligence Ministry agents.
In February, #JamalKhashoggi kindly shared the Arabic version of an oped I wrote for Washington Post about #MosqueMeToo which I started for Muslim women to talk about sexual harassment and assault in Sacred spaces, including Hajj in Makkah, #Saudi Arabia
Immediately after Jamal shared my column, i was inundated with one of the worst and most coordinated attacks by #Saudi regime trolls I have ever experienced. For days. It was a window into how much shit he and other Saudis who are critical got and continue to get.
The Saudi “investigation” of the disappearance of #JamalKhashoggi does not exist.
Rather, President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are conspiring with the Saudi leadership, buying time for them to build a cover story. wapo.st/2CVGLUl
The Saudi leadership under King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, like the Turkish government, knows what happened to Jamal.
So do Trump and his top aides. They have access to U.S. intelligence reports that are being withheld from Congress. wapo.st/2CVGLUl
The basics have been widely reported.
The Turks say they have audio and video recordings that show what happened to Jamal. Experts say it is unthinkable that the operation would have been carried out without the crown prince’s knowledge and approval. wapo.st/2CVGLUl
