And now we hear from Babak Ebrahimi (middle), brother of Maziar Ebrahimi who recently testified about imprisonment and torture at the hand of intelligent services in #Iran, framed for assassination of nuclear scientists 7 years ago.
His brother was in Syria when he was arrested.
Babak was working as a make-up artist in Syria where he got married. He was arrested shortly after Maziar's arrest & transferred to prison under control of Lebanese Hezbollah. His wife who was three months pregnant is also arrested. His interrogator was Iranian.
#Iran
Babak was tortured for 20 days in Hezbollah's prison with brutal beatings, then transferred for 2 months to Syrian Intelligence prisons and then sent to #Iran to section 209 of Evin prison where he was interrogated for 2 months threatening to execute him and his wife.

SHORT THREAD

1)
Quite interesting to see that @JZarif used a 2017 image in his tweet about meeting French President @EmmanuelMacron.

#Iran
2)
A simple google shows #Iran's own state run Financial Tribune website used this image back in 2017.

3)
After no French official welcomed him at the airport upon arrival, @JZarif was further humiliated as Macron refused to take any pictures during their talks.

“It was sarcasm,” @POTUS says of his ‘I’m the chosen one’ remark.
#IEEPA was invoked by @realDonaldTrump earlier this year when he said illegal immigration was an emergency and threatened to put tariffs on all imports from #Mexico.

#Iran’s chief apologist @JZarif claims 73% of Iranians participate in elections.
It is quite obvious that numerous provided by Zarif or the Iranian regime can never be trusted.
Furthermore, let’s see what Zarif won’t tell you about elections in Iran.
2)
Key differences exist between elections in Iran & the West. The process & dynamics involved in selecting Iran’s president suggest why there's a strong belief any form of elections in Iran are a sham & the power to rule the country lies elsewhere.

1)
Initial reports indicate a military recon aircraft (possibly a military drone) has been shot down near a major site of the #Iran-backed Shiite "Hashd al-Shaabi" (PMF/PMU) militia's 12th Brigade near Baghdad, Iraq.
2)
PMF/PMU (Hezbollah Brigade):
“We are issuing a final warning to the American enemy that any new targeting (of our bases) will be punished by a harsh and decisive response. Your bases are in our missile ranges. We hold U.S. responsible for attacks targeting our bases."
3)
This read is now even more interesting:

"Al-Muhandis, who once battled U.S. troops in Iraq, also commands the feared Hezbollah Brigades faction, which has close ties to Iran and is on a U.S. list of designated terrorists."

Iranians living in Norway are protesting a visit by #Iran's chief apologist @JZarif.

Chants:
"Zarif is a terrorist"
@JZarif Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide: We are considering a number of measures on how to contribute to maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz.

My take:
This announcement, coming after a meeting with @JZarif in Oslo, is utterly humiliating for #Iran's regime.

#BREAKING
Brian Hook, US Special Rep on #Iran:
1)
We are focused on our maximum pressure on the regime in Iran. Tehran uses oil resources for terrorism. Any oil consignment to Syria is worth tens of millions of dollars. We have warned ship crews not to aid the IRGC export oil.
2)
Hook:
If you are the sailor of a ship carrying Iran's oil, you will come under judicial punishment.
We want a stable & peaceful Middle East. As long as Iran continues its terrorism, we will prevent its measures and oil exports.
3)
Hook:
The regime in #Iran has continuously provided 70% of Hezbollah's budget. However, Hezbollah's leader is now asking for help due to U.S. sanctions. These groups are weakening.
We are sending this message to Tehran that it is unacceptable to support terrorist groups.

Pompeo, in his Fox interview, made a few interesting statements on Afghanistan. 1) after the wedding attack, simply said US will continue to "decimate" "radical Islamic terrorism" "in a way that is smart and doesn’t require excess sacrifice on behalf of the American people." /1
That's a sensible balance, more than "end forever wars," signaling under Trump the US is not completely withdrawing from anywhere. and 2) Pompeo stated Trump's goal clear: reduce cost (money and lives) but ensure a posture that can reduce homeland attacks from Afgh. 2/
"Those twin goals are what the President set out for my team and for the Department of Defense. We’re working towards them. I am confident that we can achieve them." /3

#UPDATE
Greece confirms that Grace 1 (now "Adrian Darya-1") the Iranian oil tanker, did not request to anchor in its ports.
Reports indicate a US Navy recon aircraft (possibly Poseidon) was keeping watch over the ship.
#Iran
"Were the U.S. to thus allow the Adrian Darya 1 to offload its oil cargo, the IRGC would regard their success as testifying to American weakness. That cannot be allowed to happen."

2019 will probably be the first year in #Iran's modern history where non-oil export revenue will exceed that of oil exports, reaching >$40bn.

Iran's non-oil exports have doubled in the last 10 years under sanctions. This is the future of Iran's economy.
datawrapper.de/_/a36Es/
For comparison, total exports in 1995:

Pakistan: $8bn
Egypt: $3bn
Iran: $4bn

In 2018, total exports were:

Pakistan: $23bn
Egypt: $29bn
Iran: $33bn

Iran arguably faced greater geopolitical headwinds, but it's non-oil exports now exceed total exports for both Egypt/Pakistan.
State policy is prioritizing non-oil growth. Iranian companies are learning how to be exporters. The rial is cheaper and so are Iranian goods. Iraq and Afghanistan are more stable. Transport links emerging to Far East and Central Asia. There's a case for optimism here.

RUSSIA CONNECTS

The West, being overtaken by China & those allied with it has repeatedly signaled its intent to weaken those rising to threaten its continued ability to be World Control HQ.

The East has largely until recently hoped for a change of heart & a return to sanity.
RUSSIA CONNECTS

The East doesn't wish conflict, it wants stability, strong relationships, security & trade.

The West has shown time after time its malign intention, to disrupt & destabilize, creating chaos, organizing provocations, sanctioning, sabotaging, ever threatening war.
RUSSIA CONNECTS

Color revolutions have become the West’s favored means of undermining nations & replacing governments.

The fomented insurrection occurring now in Hong Kong is another example of its cynical attempt to generate chaos with a view to furthering western aims.
