The American Jewish Congress released a statement on May 8, 2023 on Bashar Al Assad rejoining the Arab League. This is a good time to recall why this is not a good idea after #Assad attended an Arab Summit in #SaudiArabia over the weekend. Read this #thread⬇️/1

The #AmericanJewishCongress is alarmed that efforts are underway to rehabilitate #BasharAssad. Before any normalization, Assad needs to talk to the opposition, eliminate #Iran presence in #Syria, and initiate a political transition in accordance with UNSCR 2254. /2
Sharing our concerns about rehabilitating #BasharAlAssad is more than half of Syria’s population displaced by #Assad’s actions over the past decade, says @JackRosenNYC, President of #AmericanJewishCongress. /3

بشار الاسد کی عرب لیگ من واپسی کے بارے میں امریکی یہودی کانگرس کا بیان۔ تاریخ اشاعت 9 اپریل 2023

اس بیان کو صدر #امریکی_یہودی_کانگرس @JackRosenNYC #جیک_روزن نے نیویارک سے جاری کیا ہے، بشمول دستخط نائب صدر ڈاکٹر منیر کاظمی، سکرٹری ڈاکٹر بنجامن شویک، اور ٹریژری مائیکل میلنک۔ /1
ایک سیاسی ادارے کی حیثیت سے #امریکی_یہودی_کانگرس ان رپورٹس پر نظر رکھے ہوئے ہے کہ شام کو عرب لیگ میں رکنیت بحال کی جا رہی ہے اور بشار الاسد کی ساکھ کو بحال کیا جا رہا ہے۔ ہم سمجھتے ہیں کہ شام کی عالمی برادری میں بحالی کے عمل سے قبل، اسد کو مخالفین سے بات چیت کا آغاز کرنا چاہئے /2
شام میں ایران کی سرگرمیاں بند ہونی چاہئیں اور اقوام متحدہ سیکورٹی کونسل کی قرارداد 2254 کے مطابق اندرونی سیاسی عمل کا آغاز ہونا چاہئے۔ ان مطالبات میں شام کے پناہ گزین، جو ریاست کی آدھی سے زیادہ کی آبادی ہیں جسے اسد کی فسطائیت کی وجہ سے بے گھر ہونا پڑا، وہ بھی اس بات سےمتفق ہیں۔/3

"يبقى أن نرى ما إذا كانت #إيران ستغير من سلوكها بعد الإتفاقية مع #السعودية أم أنها ستحرج الطرف الضامن #الصين وتعود إلى أساليبها القديمة - كما حدث في مناسبات عدة في الماضي"

-- بيان من جاك روزن، رئيس الكونغرس الأميركي اليهودي في نيويورك.

"يجدد الإتفاق بين #السعودية و #إيران لإعادة العلاقات الدبلوماسية الجدل حول مستقبل السلام بين إسرائيل والدول العربية، نفوذ إيران الخبيث في المنطقة، دور أميركا في الشرق الأوسط، والعلاقات مع الحلفاء الإقليميين التقليديين."
-- جاك روزن، رئيس @AJCongress

يقر #الكونغرس_الأميركي_اليهودي بالأسباب التي دعت #السعودية لقطع العلاقات الدبلوماسية مع #إيران في يناير2016 ،عندما أقدم متطرفون مرتبطون بالحرس الثوري والباسيج #IRGC على إقتحام وإحراق البعثات الدبلوماسية 🇸🇦، في انتهاك للقانون الدولي وكمحاولة لزيادة التوتر لدفع أجندة المتطرفة /3

It remains to be seen whether #Iran will temper its behavior after the deal with #SaudiArabia or if it will embarrass the guarantor #China and relapse into its old ways, says @JackRosenNYC, President @AJCongress.

The agreement between #SaudiArabia -#Iran to restore diplomatic ties renews debate about the future of peace between #Israel and Arab states, Iran’s malign influence in the region, and #America’s role in the Middle East and ties with traditional regional allies-- @JackRosenNYC /2
#AmericanJewishCongress recognizes 🇸🇦 rationale in severing diplomatic ties with #Iran in Jan 2016. Extremists linked to #IRGC+#Basij stormed & burned #Saudi missions, in violation of intl law & as an attempt to exacerbate tensions to advance 🇮🇷’s extreme ideological agenda. /3

#Iran, maestro del #Reverseengineering, sta ottenendo armamenti Nato catturati dai russi in Ucraina per studiarli e sviluppare dispositivi "home made". Il destino di sistemi, soprattutto a spalla, come Javelin e Stinger, abbandonati sul campo…
dai militari #Ucraina è stato più volte affrontato in questo anno di guerra. Storicamente gli iraniani hanno sviluppato i propri armamenti partendo proprio da attrezzature "catturate" al nemico, come il sistema Toophan, derivante dal Tow, oppure i famigerati Shahed, copia

#Breaking: #SaudiArabia and #Iran agreed to resume relations via #Chinese mediation. According to #Iranian media sources.

It's such a big and bold geopolitical move in an extremely sensitive time. Let's wait and see how things will unfold.
Now, it has just been confirmed officially by #SaudiArabia through 3 parties' statement, which thanked the #Chinese mediation process etc.
This move has an unprecedented global strategic implications; the #US may praise the move publicly but deep down they will be blown by the new reality on the ground which is the fact that #China has become a political power in the Middle East rather than an economic one alone.

BREAKING: Die Europäische Union hat Sanktionen gegen 32 Personen aus dem #Iran und zwei Einrichtungen beschlossen. Vom Tisch ist meinen Informationen zufolge vorerst die Listung der Revolutionsgarde (#IRGC): Es gibt sowohl politischen Widerstand als auch rechtliche Bedenken.
So soll vor allem Frankreich sich gegen die Maßnahme sträuben. Der juristische Dienst des Rates hat außerdem dem Vernehmen nach in einem Rechtsgutachten klargestellt, dass dem #IRGC eine konkrete Terrortat in einem EU-Staat nachgewiesen werden muss, um Rechtssicherheit zu haben.
Der Außenministerrat hat am Montag aber die iranischen Minister für Kultur und für Bildung sowie mehrere Parlamentsabgeordnete auf die EU-Sanktionsliste gesetzt (= Einreiseverbot in die EU-Länder & Einfrieren des in der EU angelegten Vermögens).…

U.S. curbs exports to Iranian firms for producing drones for Russia… This is long overdue designation of #IRGCterrorist and its entities.
We provided details in our press conference in October 2021 and our report in December 2021 about the #IRGC drone manufacturing and deployment for #Iran regime's terror operations, including the role of the IRGC's Aerospace Force. #IRGCterrorists ImageImage

To kill #Iranian dissidents overseas, #IRGC & #Iranian Intelligence recruit criminals from #Azerbaijan Republic. One of them was #PoladOmarov who was involved in failed assassination attempt of #MasihAlinejad in NY, #US. This is moment of his arrest in #Prague, #Czech on 08/01/23
In 2021, #IRGC Quds Force hired an assassin from #Azerbaijan Republic to assassinate several #Israeli businessmen in #Cyprus. Cypriot Police arrested him after #Mossad tipped them. Many ex-members of Azerbaijan Intelligence are involved in crimes & they often get hired by #IRGC.
To avoid any harm to its image, #Azerbaijan government does its best to hide the fact that ex-members of its intelligence organization are being recruited by #Iranian Ministry of Intelligence to kill #Iranian dissidents & #Israeli citizens overseas.

The terror attack at embassy of #Azerbaijan Republic (#Baku) in #Tehran, #Iran is most likely a false flag operation of Azerbaijani Intel service. Authorities of the Baku were fully prepared to release statements for this attack. Even Azerbajani media had received notice before!
This CCTV footage shows inside the #Baku embassy in #Tehran, #Iran, when the 50 year old attacker armed with an AK-47 Assault rifle entered and opened fire at people inside. Head of the security of #Azerbaijan embassy attempted to stop him & he was wounded.
With the heroic action of this man, head of security of the emnbassy of #Azerbaijan Republic (#Baku), the terrorist who is believed to be hired by Azerbaijani Intelligence failed to kill more people inside the embassy in #Tehran, #Iran.

“ایران، مستعمره جمهوری شیطانی

برخلاف آنچه تصور می‌شود، سپاه پاسداران جمهوری اسلامی، شاخه ای از نیروهای مسلح برای حفظ ایران نیست. همانطور که از نام آن پیداست، فقط برای پاسداری از “نظام سیاسی جمهوری اسلامی “ و جلوگیری از هر گونه جنبش مخالف شکل گرفته است.
از این رو نمیتوان انتظار داشت که سپاه موضع خود را در انقلاب کنونی تغییر دهد و رویه ای مسالمت آمیز پیش رو گیرد. چون با ماهیت شکل گیری این سازمان در تناقض است و با هر گونه عاملی که نظام سیاسی جمهوری اسلامی را به چالش بکشدبه شدید ترین شیوه پاسخ می‌دهد. چه این عامل کودکی ۱۴ ساله ..
باشد چه کشورهای اروپایی.

از همان ابتدای تاسیس نیز، نظام توجه خاصی به آن اختصاص داده است. بطوری که برای سال ۱۴۰۲ بودجه ای که برای این سازمان در نظر گرفته شده است، ۱۱۹ هزار میلیارد تومان معادل یک پنجم درآمد های نفتی ایران است. البته این فقط بودجه ای است که دولت در نظر گرفته …

There seems to be a lot of rumors about the #EUTerrorlist and what's going to happen next week. Here some explanation:
❌️ The terrorlist is NOT a list of the @EUParl_EN.
✅️ The list is made by the @EUCouncil - consisting of ministers of each EU country. #IRGCterrorists /1
❌️ There will be NO vote on terrorlisting the #IRGC next week in #Strasbourg.
✅️ The @EUParl_EN will vote on a resolution on #IranRevoIution - probably calling for #IRGCterrorists.
❌️ There is NO vote on Monday.
✅️ The resolution is on the agenda for THURSDAY. /2
❌️ The @Europarl_EN can NOT decide to put #IRGC on the #terrorlist.
✅️ They can call for it. It is important they do.
✅️ It is decided by national governments of the EU memberstates.
✅️ #IRGCterrorists must have an unanimous vote by ALL 27 EU members in the @EUCouncil. /3

There has been a lot of talk and misinformation about the #IRGC's inclusion on the 🇪🇺 EU terror list.

So here is a 🧵 thread to clarify things - for my own position, read until the end:

#Iran #IRGCterrorists

❓ What kind of sanctions can the EU impose

➡️ UN sanctions the 🇪🇺 implements
➡️ EU may take a more severe stance by applying stricter+additional measures
➡️ Fully autonomous 🇪🇺 sanction regimes and targeted sanctions on individuals / entities

❓ Which 🇪🇺 EU sanctions are already in place against the #IRGC

1⃣ The EU has listed & sanctioned the entire IRGC under the Weapons of Mass Destruction sanctions regime. The same sanctions already apply as in the case of a terrorist listing.

Where is #Iran heading?🧵

1- After almost 4 months of protests, Iran can't afford a return to the way things were prior to the killing of #MahsaAmini. As i predicted in Oct Iran enters a period of hyper-uncertainty & instability; a period in which the regime won't be able to...
2- extinguish #IranRevoIution & Iranians cannot topple the regime in the immediate future. But, given the regime's use of extreme forms of repression (i.e. summary executions of teenagers) all bridges btw people & regime are burnt. Now, all bets are off!
3- Regardless of state narratives of victory over "rioters", neither side is winning or losing. For now, #Iran & #Khamenei's regime have fought themselves into a stalemate. The country is a powder keg ready to explode but we never know when the next volcano of protest will erupt.
