"For fear of harming nuclear talks between #Iran and world powers, diplomats say no action is likely to be taken against Iran when the board holds a meeting on Nov. 24."

THREAD

1)
Rob Malley, U.S. Special Rep on #Iran, has come heavy criticism for arguing: "Most of the region’s disfunctionings have root in Iran’s exclusion."

Don't be surprised. His remarks about Iran-backed terrorist groups, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, are quite telling.
2)
Reminder—#Iran provides for:

Assad—$15 bn/yr
Hezbollah—$700 mill/yr
Houthis—at least $360 mill/yr
Hamas—$360 mill/yr
Iraqi militias—$150 mill/yr

Sources:

But this doesn't concern Malley apparently.
3)
Malley, while being a U.S. official, sounds more like the Iranian foreign minister or a strong Iranian apologist/lobbyist.

#Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Still Malley says: "... what we have to do so that Iran enjoys the benefits of the deal...]"

Reminder—Palestinian woman criticizes #Iran-backed Hamas:
"Hamas officials' children drive in luxurious cars, but I have 4 unemployed sons. All of Gaza are unemployed because of Ismaeel Haniyeh & Yahya Sinwar. They care nothing about poor people's needs."
Reminder—Ismail Haniyeh of the #Iran-backed Hamas terrorist group, saluting the regime ruling Iran "which has not faltered in supporting and funding the resistance financially, militarily and technically. This is an example of the [regime's] strategy..."
