Tehran designates 61 prominent Americans including 30 bi-partisan sitting Members of U.S. Congress for their opposition to the prior designation of the main Iranian opposition movement, the MEK, and to #Iran regime’s killing of its members.… A large number of those designated by the Iranian regime, are would be targets of the regime’s terror plot by convicted diplomat Asadollah Assadi, in the 2018 Free Iran World Summit in Paris. Tehran is seeking a controversial deal with Belgium to free Assadi. #DontFreeTerrorists

IAEA DG Rafael Grossi said #Iran’s regime had failed to reduce concerns about violations of its nonproliferation safeguards agreement, will eventually cross the uranium enrichment threshold. #IAEA’s Board of Governors is to decide on decades of denial, deception & duplicity. The IAEA report is perhaps the most damning since its Nov 2011 report, which highlights clear activities related to the Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) of Iran's nuclear program, i.e., uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at three undeclared locations in Iran. 2/

A Swedish Prosecutor released the indictment on Hamid Noury, a regime henchman involved in the #1988Massacre: Khomeini issued a decree, stating that all prisoners in Iranian prisons who were affiliated with the MEK & remained faithful, were to be executed.… "Shortly afterward, mass executions of supporters of MEK in the Iranian prisons began. Between July 30 & August 16, 1988, Hamid Noury, as an assistant collusion with other perpetrators at Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, executed a large number of members of the MEK."

Treasury Targets Billion Dollar Foundations Controlled by Iran’s Supreme Leader… The Execution of Khomeini’s Order ‘EIKO’, is the richest and highest revenue-generating enterprise controlled by Khamenei. The other is The Astan-e Qods-e Razavi Foundation. "EIKO and AQR control large swaths of the Iranian economy, including assets expropriated from political dissidents and religious minorities, to the benefit of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and senior Iranian government officials." EIKO was also designated in 2013 under E.O. 13599.

Supreme Leader @khamenei_ir &his patronage network, Minister of Intelligence & his notorious ministry (MOIS) have been engaged in killing, massacre of Iranians & #terrorism abroad. Such designation & more are warranted, as Iranian people have been chanting “Death to Khamenei.” Intel Minister Mahmoud Alavi designated today under E.O. 13553, for "serious human rights abuses" against the Iranian people, also collaborated with Foreign Minister @JZarif in a series of terror plots in Europe since 2018. Both deserve additional #terrorism designation as SDGT. Image

Prosecutors: Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi handed over a bomb package,"to plant it at a mass rally near Paris two days later attended by tens of thousands of opponents of Iran’s theocratic regime & by prominent British & American politicians." #Iran #Terrorism @statedeptspox "This was no casual encounter, as the plainclothes officers watching them knew.

Indeed long overdue. No "Ambassador" title should cover the nature of a terror master. Iraj Masjedi is one of the most veteran commanders of the IRGC and one of the first commanding organizers of its Qods Force, which was formed in early 1990s to do nothing but #terrorism. 1/ Prior to 2003, Masjedi was the commander of Ramazan Garrison in Western Iran, which was the base of the regime forces and groups who pursued terrorist operations in Iraq. Hadi Ameri (then commander of the Badr Corp) and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, were under his command. 2/

Indeed, in summer 1988, as many as 30,000 political prisoners-none sentenced to death-were murdered, ordered by "Supreme Leader" Khomeini, in a matter of weeks. Key perpetrators, unpunished, are now Judiciary Chief & Justice Minister. Pursue justice for #1988Massacre victims. As documented in "Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule," by @ncrius, Khomeini issue a fatwa (decree) that any political prisoner who refused to denounce the main opposition movement, the MEK, should be killed; that was the key question each political prisoner in Iran was asked.

Again the Iranian regime is designated "the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism" for being, "directly involved in plotting terrorism through its IRGC & Ministry of Intelligence and Security including plots in recent years in North & South America, Europe, ME, Asia & Africa." "In another historic action, the U.S. Department of State designated #Iran’s IRGC as an FTO in April 2019. This unprecedented step reflected the Iranian regime’s unique place among the governments of the world in its use of #terrorism as a central tool of its statecraft."

The U.N. Security Council must extend the arms embargo against Iran. If it won’t, the U.S. is prepared to ‘snap back’ sanctions, writes Brian H. Hook, U.S. special representative for Iran… #JCPOA In fact snap back is the only way to curb the Iranian regime's threat which would surely increase due to the sunset clauses leading to various sanctions reliefs as a result of the JCPOA agreement.

This bi-partisan letter to Secretary Pompeo by a large House majority is a clear indication that the threat of the Iranian regime is real, ongoing & not a partisan issue. It highlights major flaws in the JCPOA which has now allowed the expiration of the arms embargo in Oct. 1/5 The experience of the past four decades shows that the Iranian regime maintains power thru shear repression at home and export of terrorism and destabilizing activities abroad including its nuclear and missile programs. 2/5
