When American and Iranian officials sound identical about the sabotage of an IRGC naval forward-base wsj.com/articles/ship-… Image
I’d bet big $ that the quoted official is @Rob_Malley @USEnvoyIran
Former ambassador to Israel, @DanielBShapiro: “There are no illusions in the Biden administration about the Iranian threat to Israel and countries in the region.”

Yeah, right. Just look at the above quotes in the WSJ.

There’s been lots of focus on the discriminatory nature of the New York restrictions, and their thuggishness.

But not enough was said about the manipulation of the statistics/numbers, so let’s do that:

At first they were going to be specific zip-codes nytimes.com/2020/10/04/nyr…
Then Andrew Cuomo decided to make the lines based on what he said were the “cluster-zones” nypost.com/2020/10/06/cuo…. These red-zones mostly followed the zip-codes, with minor adjustments to include specific Jewish neighborhoods, while excluding non-Jewish sections. (((Yes, !!!)))
At the time, the targeting of the Jewish neighborhoods by itself seemed to be the only evil motivation here. But with time, it became clear that it wasn’t all.

Cuomo wanted to make sure this lockdown would be prolonged; so he departed from the zip-code metric.

We Orthodox Jews in NYC have been all the rage for a few weeks now, and I gather most people outside the community have no idea what’s really transpiring here, so allow me to try to clarify some stuff for you all.
The Jewish community here is very big, and consists of hundreds of congregations. Each can be different. Obviously I can’t give an accounting for all, but I’ll try to give a general explainer on the broad happenings with COVID and the restrictions impacting religious life.
As most know, in March & April the orthodox Jewish community in the Tri-State area suffered greatly from COVID. Many lives were lost. (As an aside, I won’t use the derogatory and meaningless “ultra” label when describing Orthodox Jews).

It’s extremely hard to predict what’ll come next, mainly because Qassem Suleimani would historically be the one making these calls — but he’s GONE.
While most (rightly) assume that we are about to witness Iran unleashing a wave of attack — whether covert or precision cruise missiles and bomb laden drones — it’s still far from certain as the Iranian leadership is headless.
In any event, war with Iran was always going to occur at some point — and we’d far prefer having it sooner rather than later.

Mohammad Javad Zarif is unserious. He references “paragraph 36” as though it is the entirely of the JCPOA & it somehow licenses illegitimate Iranian enrichment activities. He’s also lying about Iran triggering and exhausting para 36. It never happened.
The reason why Iran has NOT triggered paragraph 36 — is because paragraph 36 is followed by paragraph 37, & once that process begins SnapBack of sanctions are unavoidable.
What Zarif wants, is something that was not included in the JCPOA: That Iran would be ‘legally’ able to breach the restrictions if it didn’t get the economic rewards it envisioned — while still preventing the reimposition of sanctions.
