END APPEASEMENT TOWARD IRAN’S REGIME, URGES TOP SELLING GERMAN PAPER
“That’s why there must finally be an end with the appeasement, the talk of Iranian partners, an agreement that supposedly makes the world safer. The current Iranian government, the mullahs, are not partners. For us and for our most important allies, they are only one thing: a threat,” wrote Bild journalist Maximilian Kiewel.
Kiewel’s opinion article was authored before Iran’s regime announced on Monday that it will violate the limit on its stockpile of enriched uranium that was agreed to as part of the 2015 nuclear deal with the world powers.
Germany’s foreign minister, Heiko Maas, visited Iran last week as part of an effort to preserve the atomic deal and boost trade with Iran’s clerical regime. Maas is working with France and the United Kingdom to jumpstart a financial mechanism to circumvent US sanctions against Iran. Germany sold 2.7 billion euros worth of goods to Iran in 2018, and Berlin is the third-largest import country for the Islamic Republic.
“The world is safer with the Iran agreement than without,” Maas said in a Bild interview, according to Kiewel a month ago.
The United States withdrew from the Iran deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in 2018 because US President Donald Trump asserted it did not stop Tehran from building a nuclear weapons device.
Kiewel also chronicled Iran’s jingoism in the region, including the Iranian regime’s attack on vessels in the Gulf of Oman. Kiewel wrote: “Whom do Western intelligence agencies blame for these attacks? The Iranians.”
He also wrote that Iran’s regime plays a critical role in financing the US and EU designated terrorist organization, Hamas, and its rocket attacks on Israel.
