  • On hot mic, Israeli PM raps 'crazy' EU, admits Syria strikes

    Associated Press ^ | Jul 19, 2017 4:40 PM EDT | Pablo Gorondi and Ilan Ben Zion
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught Wednesday by a live microphone railing against the European Union’s “crazy” insistence on resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a precondition for closer ties. Netanyahu was meeting with leaders of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia at a regional summit. Netanyahu was discussing Iran, Syria, the Islamic State group, and EU-Israel relations when some of his comments — and those of other leaders at the meeting closed to the media — were accidentally broadcast to journalists in another room. Netanyahu also made a rare public admission that Israel has struck Iranian arms convoys...
  • Trump Recertifies Iran Nuclear Deal, but Only Reluctantly

    President Trump agreed on Monday to certify again that Iran is complying with an international nuclear agreement that he has strongly criticized, but only after hours of arguing with his top national security advisers, briefly upending a planned announcement as a legal deadline loomed. Mr. Trump has repeatedly condemned the deal brokered by President Barack Obama as a dangerous capitulation to Iran, but six months into his presidency he has not abandoned it. The decision on Monday was the second time his administration certified Iran’s compliance, and aides said a frustrated Mr. Trump had told his security team that he would not...
  • Iran Dominates in Iraq After U.S. ‘Handed the Country Over’

    Walk into almost any market in Iraq and the shelves are filled with goods from Iran — milk, yogurt, chicken. Turn on the television and channel after channel broadcasts programs sympathetic to Iran. A new building goes up? It is likely that the cement and bricks came from Iran. And when bored young Iraqi men take pills to get high, the illicit drugs are likely to have been smuggled across the porous Iranian border. And that’s not even the half of it. Across the country, Iranian-sponsored militias are hard at work establishing a corridor to move men and guns to...
  • Newly declassified documents reveal the CIA to have been mostly a bystander in the 1953 Iran coup.

    Weekly Standard ^ | July 14th 2017 | Mossadeq
    William Faulkner once mused that the past is never dead, in fact it’s not even past. The story of the coup that toppled Iranian prime minister Mohammad Mossadeq in 1953 may not be dead, but it is unhinged from history. Tall tales by a scion of the American establishment—former CIA agent and presidential grandson Kermit Roosevelt—and reams of studies by left-wing professors have sustained the myth that the Eisenhower administration ousted Mossadeq. The Iranians are mere bystanders in this story, watching helplessly as a malevolent America manipulates their nation’s destiny. Most academic speculations remain cloistered in college campuses, but the...

    Very important update from Amir. If you are short of time, you can skip the rundown of the tour and other comments about his teaching in general, and skip to the update itself, which starts around minute 12. (You might want to go back and watch the earlier part later, if so.) But be sure to watch from 12 to the end. An update that the world needs to know.

    Settlers call for an end to discriminatory land purchase practices in Judea and Samaria, particularly in Hebron, as they rallied Sunday evening next to two structures they bought but are barred from entering in that West Bank city. "Jews can buy homes anywhere in the world, in France, in Turkey and even in Iran," said Shlomo Levinger a spokesman for some 20 Jewish families who want to move into the buildings. "Just in Judea and Samaria there is a racist edict that prevents Jews from purchasing a home," he said. "We are demanding an end to this discriminatory practice," he...

    Weekly Standard ^ | Jul 07, 2017 | Benjamin Weinthal
    Startling new evidence from German intelligence reports shows the Tehran regime is working to illegally obtain technology and know-how to advance its nuclear weapons and missile programs, despite the 2015 agreement to curb its nuclear program. A report from the state of Hamburg holds that “there is no evidence of an complete about-face in Iran’s atomic polices in 2016” [after the Islamic Republic signed the JCPOA deal with Western powers in 2015, aimed at restricting Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief]. Iran sought missile carrier technology necessary for its rocket program.” The report noted that the federal prosecutor...

    U.S. forces have been instructed to take all measures needed to protect American interests in Syria, including military measures, as part of an effort that comes after top officials in the Trump administration assessed that Iran is deliberately probing American weaknesses and reactions on the Syrian battlefield, according to senior Trump administration officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Iran-backed forces, including Hezbollah, have already initiated multiple encounters with the United States by violating agreements worked out between Washington and Moscow aimed at preventing the various factions targeting ISIS inside Syria from coming into conflict. This is part of...

    THE ALAVI FOUNDATION REGULARLY SENT FIVE-FIGURE DONATIONS TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION. An Iranian foundation recently convicted as a front organization for the theocratic regime in Tehran donated five-figure sums to the infamous Clinton Foundation. Last week, a New York grand jury ruled that the government can seize a building majority-owned by the Alavi Foundation, agreeing with prosecutors that it is a front group for the mullahs in Tehran. The foundation used the Manhattan skyscraper to garner hundreds of millions in revenue so it could supply cash for its “charitable” endeavors inside the United States. The Alavi Foundation rarely donated to...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin's Syrian gambit was a fatal mistake that may soon destroy Russia and Putin himself. Putin’s strategy in Syria makes the Titanic look watertight. It’s gotten so bad for Putin in the Syrian quicksand that a Russian analyst, Leonid Issaev, who actually lives in Russia, just published an article in al-Jazeera entitled, “Russia is at a dead-end in Syria, Russia is struggling and failing to find a way out of the Syrian quagmire.” Mr. Issaev’s thesis is that “the Kremlin’s gamble to use the conflict in Syria to normalize relations with the West after the disaster in...

    For years the U.S. has worked to isolate the Iranian regime on the international stage, but Iranian President Hasan Rouhani sees an opportunity to reverse that situation, proposing on Sunday that Iran adopt policies to leave the United States isolated. And he pointed as examples of such “isolation” already happening recent meetings of the U.N. Security Council and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an international counterterrorist finance and anti-money laundering body. “We should not allow the U.S. hand to expand and become powerful,” Iran’s “moderate” president told a meeting of judiciary officials in Tehran. “Our foreign policy should be...

    This week, John looks at the rapid changes occurring across multiple fronts. From the Supreme Court, to genetic engineering, changes are occurring at an ever-increasing pace which will eventually result in the return of Christ in fulfillment of His promise. In the interim, we must be vigilant to remain focused on our walks, our witness and our conduct to ensure that we are not a stumbling block for those who have yet to know the saving grace and forgiveness of the One who can satisfy the longing of our spirits. Remember, when things seem to be falling apart, they are...

    (CNSNews.com) – Ahead of a large annual “Free Iran” gathering in Paris on Saturday, the exiled Iranian opposition movement says hundreds of incidents of risky expressions of support have been taking place inside Iran – from distribution of pamphlets to the appearance of posters and graffiti. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)/People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran (MEK) says hundreds of videos and photos of the incidents have been taken in dozens of towns and cities, and compiled a sample in a video clip. Photos of NCRI leaders Maryam and Massoud Rajavi feature prominently, along with slogans which the...

    WKI: Could you tell us about the status of Kurds in Iran?Arash Saleh: Let’s briefly view some information about Kurds. The majority of Kurds are residing in four western provinces of Iran. Sanandaj, Kermanshah, West Azerbaijan, and Ilam are the main Kurdish populated provinces in Western Iran. Kurds are 12% of Iranian population. Sometimes 14% have been mentioned which tells us that Kurds in Iran could be more than ten million. There are about two million Kurds in other places of Iran, Eastern Iran, Northeastern Iran and Northern Iran. So there have been Kurds that have historically immigrated.They still are...

    Iran, the world’s top terror sponsor, denounced President Donald Trump’s travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries Friday, calling it a “shameful exhibition.” “US now bans Iranian grandmothers from seeing their grandchildren, in a truly shameful exhibition of blind hostility to all Iranians,” said Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in a Twitter post Friday. Trump’s travel ban went into partial effect on Friday after a long fight in the courts. The issue was taken to the Supreme Court, which stayed lower court rulings preventing enforcement of the measure on Monday. The new measure will require those traveling from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan,...

    The United Nations and the European Union praised Iran on Thursday for implementing the landmark nuclear deal with six major powers, but U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley accused Tehran of “destructive and destabilizing” actions from ballistic missile launches to arms smuggling. The speeches at a Security Council meeting on implementation of a U.N. resolution endorsing the July 2015 nuclear agreement showed the deep division over Iran between the five major powers who view the deal as a major achievement and the Trump administration, which is reviewing it. President Donald Trump, congressional Republicans and Israel have assailed the agreement as a windfall...

    Seymour Hersh says that Dick Cheney headed a secret assassination wing and the head of the wing has just been named as the new commander in Afghanistan. Hersh said that there is a special unit called the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) that does high-value targeting of men that are known to be involved in anti-American activities, or are believed to be planning such activities. According to Hersh, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) was headed by former US vice president Dick Cheney and the former head of JSOC, Lieutenant General Stanley McChrystal who has just been named the new...

    Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators. Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long...

    Lebanon seems to be having a flag sale. Iranian flags, Hezbollah, the UN, Spain, Palestinian flags. They are all flying provocatively along the border with the northern Israeli community of Metulla. Just meters from the fence that separates the countries, not far from the site of a 1985 terror attack, Hezbollah has festooned the roads with signs of its presence. It’s purposely done so Israeli residents can see the flags and the billboards next to them. In Metulla there is a memorial for the 12 Israeli soldiers killed in the 1985 suicide bombing, while just across the border a huge...
