1 - The Biden administration is on the verge of providing a large cash infusion to the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, Iran.

This deal could violate U.S. law by providing Iran with $17-24 BILLION dollars. 🧵
2 - Biden's deal with Iran could unlock $7B frozen in South Korean banks, ~$10B in Iraqi banks, and access to $6.7B in IMF funds.

Part of these funds would be used to pay billions in ransom payments for three innocent Americans in Iranian jails.
3 - According to the @nytimes, the U.S. would also stop enforcing sanctions against Iranian oil exports - which provides funding for Iran's chief terror group, the IRGC, with tens of billions of dollars each year.

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

#IranRevolution will reach victory when we all put our focus on the people of Iran shouldering the fight against the IRGC.

#WomenLifeFreedom #Mahsa_Amini #IranProtests #IranRevolution2023
After more than 120 years of struggling for freedom against dictatorships, the Iranian people deserve democracy. #WomenLifeFreedom #IranProtests #IranRevolution
Comparisons of bad and worse are never accepted, torture and killing political dissidents will not be allowed in a future Iran. There shouldn't be any praise of the SAVAK or the brutal IRGC, both of which have suppressed the Iranian people. #WomenLifeFreedom #IranProtests

This is a message from @C_AB_, @senateur61 and @Fr_Bechieau. We are the Political Sponsors of #MohammadGhobadlou. Together we protest against his unjust treatment by the #IRI. We are very concerned for his life. We demand that his death sentence is lifted immediately. /1
#WomenLifeFreedom. This is what #MohammadGhobadlou marched for. He wanted a life in freedom. For that, he was arrested and sentenced to death. On his first day in court. Without legal representation. In a show trial. #StopExecutionInIran /2
We fear that #MohammadGhobadlou will be executed in the next few days. This is another attack on human rights. Another attack on freedom by the #IRI. We are not alone. We stand for the many political sponsors for Iranian prisoners from all over the world. /3

This International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, please stand by Afghan women, by supporting @YaldaHakimFund @LEARNAfg @ASEELApp #LetAfghanGirlsLearn.

And the brave women of Iran by supporting #WomenLifeFreedom @AlinejadMasih @NazaninBoniadi
"As the world clichés their way through the rights of women this International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, please remember the Afghan women confined to the dark chambers of their homes - restrained and banned from education, the outdoors, parks, and life."
"Remember today's brave women of Iran fighting for their fundamental rights to choice, freedom, and life, with the hashtag #WomenLifeFreedom. Time will pass. Peace and equality for all too, will come with the efforts of untamable women. But history will not forget the culprits."

My #FGM Heartbreak💔
"FGM Shattered My Life!"
Chemutai, 45 Years Old, Recalls Hers:
"I will never forget that night. It was cold and they held me down and did what they did. First, they poured really cold milk on me. They said that would help with the pain. It took me a long time ImageImage
to heal; going to ease myself was so hard…
I did not know the way they cut me had anything to do with this urine problem but when I went to a hospital, a nurse told me that I had a big scar and that it might have prevented my children from coming out properly.
I am childless now

1/This is how the Islamic Republic treats its citizens
& they claim they didn’t kill #MahsaAmini!
This child murdering regime has only survived all these years by killing people.
The world must stop appeasing them now they know the truth.

2/Saqez, hometown of #MahsaAmini;

Saqez has become the heart of #IranRevolution and it is beating strong.

I read the dumb takes on the unverified data that circulated. I don’t want to have to address every dumb American take y’all DMing about. Instead, I’m going to show you what happens on a daily in the metro in Tehran. This was earlier today. Just hours ago

2) to the “researchers” who sarcastically say “ppl are getting mad at girls getting arrested”, you clearly never were chased by the Bassiji. So just wait until history is made to write, abeg. We don’t need your modern Conrad take.
3) Black folks suffer(ed) from these pseudo intellectuals who theorize emergency yet never heard the sounds of bullets, theorize folks’ pain when they’ve never felt anything CLOSE. Don’t get it twisted this IS modern day Conrad work.

I get tagged on a lot of comments, & I wish I could answer all individually but I wouldn’t get a sec left w/ my little ones. I’ll address some of the ones I get in English here #IranRevolution

👇🏾 1) on the q of whether the mvt is imperialist & a fabrication of
the west: it isn’t. The people fighting for freedom in Iran are real people and I’m scoffing as I’m typing this bc it shows how disconnected folks can be from grassroots & how the only reflection of what’s happening in Iran they see or get is the one that’s mainstream
The mvt is grassroots, it’s women, queer, men, youth, working class and throughout. To diminish #WomenLifeFreedom to “it’s imperialist & US backed” bc the argument is, “that’s how it always been”, is erasing all the above. It’s ignoring people’s intimate stories

Remember when RADICAL FEMINIST Elon Musk won plaudits for "activating Starlink" to help Iranian protestors? His superfans swooned & the White House entered into talks with him about setting up SpaceX's satellite internet service in Iran to FIGHT THE POWER! About that...
This thread quotes from recent articles in @PrivateEyeNews & @WIRED.

The Iranian Govt imposed widespread internet blackouts to try to contain the unrest that followed the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini, detained for not wearing a hijab properly.

theguardian.com/world/2022/sep…
In response, billionaire SpaceX founder & serial attention-hogger Elon Musk asked the US government for exemptions from Iran export controls for his Starlink satellite internet service.

"Activating Starlink,” he tweeted, quickly gaining 187,000+ likes.
