THREAD
1)
@NIACouncil member @AssalRad resorts to a known tactic of constantly mentioning the threat of war with #Iran to create a climate of fear that is completely unfounded and baseless.
2)
While no one wants a new war in this already troubled region, Rad compares the U.S. military to that of Saddam. Even elementary school children understand this comparison is quite ridiculous.

However, she's desperate to help Iran's regime save face.
3)
Basing her entire article behind the “rally around the flag” theory, Rad refuses to mention how Iran’s regime forced tens of thousands of children to open minefields for its brigades during the 1980s Iran-Iraq War.

Let’s teach @theintercept a lesson.
This outlet & #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists are accusing Voice of America Persian of becoming a pro-Trump outlet.
It is interesting that they never complained when pro-Tehran voices, such as Negar Mortazavi, were at VOA Persian.
2)
The first individual cited in this piece is Negar Mortazavi, who is known for her close relations with @JZarif, Iran’s top diplomat, and @NIACouncil, Tehran’s DC-based lobby group.

Conclusion:
Mortazavi is completely biased.
3)
Former VOA executive editor Mohammad Manzarpour is another individual cited in The Intercept piece.
Here’s proof from a Washington Times article that Manzarpour himself is completely biased.

1)
@JZarif, the foreign minister of #Iran’s regime, is in the U.S. confined to a limited area in New York.
The shadow of sanctions remain over his head.
Zarif has close relations with terrorists such as Qassem Suleimani, the IRGC, Hezbollah & Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
2)
The Iranian Foreign Ministry, headed by Zarif, transfers over $100 million a year to the Hezbollah terrorist organization.
3)
Zarif is also a member of Iran’s “Supreme National Security Council,” the body that decides on all of the regime’s foreign terrorist plots.
This makes Zarif an accomplice in all of the regime’s terrorism.

#Iran’s regime & lobbyists terrified of a Twitter account

On June 9, The Intercept published a piece by Murtaza Hussain claiming that I, being an Iranian dissident/activist, am a “persona” & my Twitter account is managed by the MEK, the main Iranian opposition group.
2)
Following the publication, Iran apologists/lobbyists abroad and Tehran’s trolls launched an orchestrated attack against me.
3)
Although Iranians in exile and foreign dignitaries strongly supported me, Twitter temporarily suspended my account and reopened it after gaining reassurance.

As a result, Iran’s regime failed on an international stage in silencing my voice of exposing the mullahs’ crimes.
