Responding to @jrezaian’s piece after the #IranDealWithdrawal, the fact that you “lived in #Iran for seven years” as a so-called journalist (knowing the nature of Tehran’s regime) and seeing your work, we are certain of your #Iran apologist background.

@jrezaian claims the regime will respond “with the behavior of a bully, by ratcheting up pressure on the people it rules over.”
He doesn't mention how #Obama’s JCPOA gave #Iran the green light to continue its execution inside the country & havoc across the region.
#Hypocrisy

Interesting how @jrezaian claims there “won’t be any attacks on Israel” and on the very same day #Iran’s IRGC-associated proxy groups in #Syria launched rockets towards the Golan Heights.

Yes, “the mullahs likely will tighten restrictions on the Internet, jam satellite television waves & arrest more dual nationals as a reminder to their subjects that they are still in charge.”
Yet not according to @jrezaian's reasoning.
Because of ongoing #IranProtests.
(5)
Yes, the “bleak economic climate in Iran will worsen.”
Yet not according to @jrezaian’s reasoning.
Because of #Iran’s regime spending billions in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon & Iraq.

@jrezaian blows his cover & proves his #Iran apologist nature by claiming Rouhani is “calling for greater freedoms for the people of Iran…”
Yet he doesn’t mention the soaring executions, Dec/Jan uprising crackdown & massive internet restrictions, all authorized by Rouhani.

Rouhani failed to deliver on his promises to the people.
But not because of @jrezaian’s reasoning.
Because he is nothing but a puppet of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the man who has the final word on all national security & foreign affairs in #Iran.

Interesting is how @jrezaian doesn’t mention the Dec/Jan uprising, knowing clearly that the people are now calling for regime change. A notion that #Iran apologists like Rezaian aim to prevent.

@jrezaian claims Trump’s action will deprive Iranians "the ability to access the global economy and limit their ability to travel to freer shores.”
Of course, he probably prefers #Obama’s actions that whitewashed #Iran’s regime arresting, torturing & executing thousands.
(10)
@jrezaian’s claim of “Iranians will look to their leadership for help” proves how out of line he is with the people.
Iranians are active on the hashtag #WeRespectUSFLag after so-called MPs burned the US flag in the regime’s parliament.
(11)
Iranians are also active on #WeAreHostages & #ThankYouTrump to show their support for Trump’s #IranDealWithdrawal decision.
(12)
“Iran is a country of vast resources,” claims @jrezaian, yet doesn't mention the fact that #Iran’s rulers plunder this wealth for their own survival.
Iran’s own media say over 50 million people are living in poverty?

@jrezaian claims Trump’s “toughest sanctions policy” will lead to “a dramatic wealth disparity in Iranian society.”
The “wealth disparity” I am witnessing now, as people dig the trash for something to eat, are the result of #Obama’s drastic appeasement.
Shame on you Jason.
