US CHESS CHAMPION REFUSES TO DON HIJAB FOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BEING HELD IN IRAN……

I’ll echo Brian of London’s tweet: ”We don’t force Muslims visiting the West to drink whiskey and smoke cigars.”

Secondly, why in the world is this chess championship being held in the islamonazi state of Iran in the first place?

NOTE: Kudos to the woman who refuses to bow down to islamonazi norms. Since Muslims like to pretend that there’s ”no compulsion to religion in Islam” (they lie, there is), they should insist that non-Muslims not be forced into observance of Islamic rituals.

‘We won’t wear hijabs’: Chess queens threaten to boycott world championships in Iran after being told they MUST wear Islamic headscarfs

  • Female chess players will have to wear hijab at a 2017 tournament in Iran 
  • US champion Nazi Paikidze threatened to pull out of the games in Tehran
  • Pan American champion Carla Heredia also voiced her anger at the move
  • All women in Iran must wear hijab if not they will face arrest or punishment

Top women chess players are threatening to boycott the world championship in Iran because they will be forced to wear hijabs.

Female Grandmasters will risk arrest if they do not cover up to compete in the strict Middle Eastern country due to host the knock-out tournament next year.

The World Chess Federation, known by its French acronym Fide, has now been accused of failing to stand up for women’s rights after telling players to accept the laws and respect ‘cultural differences’, The Telegraph reported.

US women’s champion Nazi Paikidze said: ‘It is absolutely unacceptable to host one of the most important women’s tournaments in a venue where, to this day, women are forced to cover up with a hijab.

‘I understand and respect cultural differences. But, failing to comply can lead to imprisonment and women’s rights are being severely restricted in general. It does not feel safe for women from around the world to play here.’

CSP: NEW EVIDENCE OF IRAN’S PRESENCE IN LATIN AMERICA…….

Spreading it’s Shiia islam venom in the American hemisphere……

350813_Iran cultural Week- Venezuela

Articles | | Counterterrorism, Latin America

 Luis Fleischman

A new book written by Emilio Blasco, Washington correspondent for the newspaper, ABC Spain, confirms many points about Iran’s penetration into the Western Hemisphere. The book is written is Spanish but its title in English would be translated as “Boomerang Chavez”.

Among other things Blasco points out the existence of fraud in the elections via electronic manipulation. Likewise, the author also stresses the fact that 95% of the Colombian drugs bound for Europe and the U.S. depart from Venezuela. Blasco also confirms the point that I raised in my book “Latin America in the Post Chavez Era”, which has been brought first by the scholar Max Mainwaring (and most recently by Ari Chaplin), that drug trafficking is a form of asymmetric war against Washington. Diosdado Cabello, currently the President of the National Assembly along with the current Venezuelan president, Nicolas Maduro, directed these drug operations.

Cabello has worked in close cooperation with Hugo Carvajal, a top military officer, former director of military intelligence whose extradition to the U.S. from Aruba, was recently denied by the Dutch government. Likewise, Tareck Al Assami, a former Venezuelan Minister of Interior and current governor of the State of Aragua, was part of this nefarious drug operation.

More worrisome is the information the author obtained from Rafael Isea, a former deputy minister of Finance and president of the Bank of Economic and Social Development. According to Mr. Isea, it was Maduro, then Venezuela’s foreign minister, who travelled to Damascus in 2007 to meet with Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, in order to negotiate the installation of Hezbollah cells in Venezuela. This agreement protected Hezbollah’s drug trafficking and money laundering activities as well as their arms supplies and provision of passports. These passports and visas were prepared by Ghazi Nassereddine, a counselor in the Venezuelan embassy in Syria (he was born in Lebanon and became a Venezuelan citizen), and later was blacklisted by the FBI.

Isea attended the Maduro/Nasrallah meeting. That was the year when mysterious direct flights between Caracas and Teheran were first noticed. Isea affirms that more than 300 Hezbollah members, among them about a dozen listed terrorists were included on those flights.

Their role, according to the former Venezuelan high officer, was to participate in drug trafficking and money-laundering in order to secure funding for Hezbollah.

CSP: WHY WAS IRAN GIVEN SECRET EXEMPTIONS IN KEY IRAN NUKE DEAL…..?

Because Obama and his regime are traitors to the American republic.

Articles | | Iran Nuclear Deal

Source: National Review

In an important report issued yesterday, the Institute for Science and International Security, a Washington, D.C. arms-control think tank, revealed that Iran was secretly granted exemptions to the July 2015 nuclear agreement (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA) so it could meet compliance requirements for what the agreement calls “Implementation Day” — when Iran was to receive an estimated $150 billion in sanctions relief.

Not coincidentally, the same day Implementation Day was announced (January 18), U.S. officials also announced a swap of 18 Iranian prisoners held by the United States for five U.S. citizens who had been illegally held by Iran. An additional 14 Iranians were removed from an INTERPOL wanted list.

The Institute report cites an unnamed official who said that without these exemptions, some of Iran’s nuclear facilities would not have been in compliance with the JCPOA by Implementation Day.

The exemptions were granted by the JCPOA’s “Joint Commission,” composed of the parties to the agreement: Iran, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China, and Russia. Some of the exemptions were significant and allowed Iran to not report activities with nuclear weapons-related applications. These exemptions were:

  • Allowing Iran to violate a cap of 300 kg for its enriched-uranium stockpile under certain circumstances.  The Commission gave Iran an exemption for reactor-grade enriched UF6 (uranium hexafluoride, the feed material for enrichment centrifuges) in the form of low-level and sludge waste.  This may have been a minor violation although the report said the amount of this material is unknown.
  • Ignoring “lab contaminant” UF6 enriched to 20 percent uranium-235 judged as “unrecoverable.” Although this may also be a minor violation, the report says the amount of this material and how it was judged unrecoverable is not known.
  • Exemption for large “hot cells.” The JCPOA allows Iran to operate or build hot cells (shielded chambers used to handle radioactive substances), but to ensure they are used for peaceful purposes such as producing medical radionuclides, Iran agreed that for 15 years these cells will be limited to no more than six cubic meters. The Commission gave Iran an exemption to operate 22 larger hot cells. According to the Institute report, these larger cells could be secretly misused for plutonium-separation experiments. The Institute also raised concerns that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is not adequately monitoring Iran’s hot cells and that Iran is exploiting this exemption to win approval to operate more hot cells with volumes greater than six cubic meters. This is a potentially serious exemption because plutonium-separation experiments have only one purpose: developing the capability to produce plutonium nuclear-weapons fuel. The report also noted two other secret decisions by the Joint Commission.

CLAIM: IRAN IN SYRIA RUNNING COVERT WAR COSTING BILLIONS…….

I’m told that the Daily Mail’s source, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), are using incorrect numbers but the Awsat al-Sharq has quoted a Kurdish official who said that the IRGC has set up camp between Kirkuk and Mosul. So this definitely has some smoke behind it, i’m just waiting to see the flames.

Inside ‘the Glasshouse’: Iran ‘is running covert war in Syria costing BILLIONS from top secret spymaster HQ near Damascus airport’

  • Sources within Iran’s Revolutionary Guards leaked intelligence to activists who passed it to MailOnline 
  • Tehran ‘runs operations in Syria from an HQ near Damascus airport’, said to be nicknamed ‘The Glasshouse’ 
  • The intelligence says there are 60,000 fighters under Iranian command in Syria, not 16,000 as was thought
  • Claims said to be ‘credible’ by intelligence experts, suggesting West has underestimated Iran’s influence
  • Iran ‘has spent billions – possibly as much as $100billion on hardware and support for Assad since 2011’  
  • It comes a year after Western powers signed a controversial nuclear deal with Iran 

Iran is shoring up the Syrian regime from a secret HQ in Damascus nicknamed ‘the Glasshouse’ – and commanding a huge covert army in support of Assad, according to leaked intelligence passed by activists to MailOnline.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) claims that the theocratic state’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has spent billions in hardware for its ally Bashar al-Assad in the last five years  – and runs operations on the ground from a five-floor monolith near Damascus airport.

The Iranian HQ, which plays a pivotal role in supporting Assad’s regime alongside Russia, contains intelligence and counterintelligence operations, and has vaults packed with millions of dollars in cash flown in from Tehran, claims the NCRI.

The allegations are contained in a dossier of reports apparently leaked by senior sources inside Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and collated by the dissident activists who oppose the Iranian regime.

The dossier – which could not be independently verified but was described as ‘credible’ by intelligence experts – makes the bold claims that Iran controls the biggest fighting force in Syria; has military bases throughout the splintered state; and has amassed a war-chest far greater than feared in support of the Syrian president.

THE GIBBERISH PRONE MSM HIDING IRANIAN DEPLOYMENT OF S-300 (AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM) IN PLAIN SITE…….

In one of the most remarkable thematic misdirections I can remember, the West’s mainstream media reported on 28 August that Iran has now deployed “long-range missiles” to the Fordo uranium enrichment site in northern Iran, near Qom.

If you don’t look past the headline, you may think vaguely that Iran has put some launchers for an intermediate-range ballistic missile in at Fordo.  That would be interestingly odd – food for thought, certainly, if only for wonks – but not terribly informative.  The average reader has no way of putting such information in context.

Sample misleading headline; one of many. (Screen grab by author taken 28 Aug 2016)

The real headline

But what Iran actually did was deploy the first S-300 air defense system equipment to Fordo. 

The average consumer of such news has heard of the S-300, and knows it’s a big deal.

Since the MSM stories acknowledge within the first few sentences that the missile system is the S-300, and since their previous stories about the long saga of Russia’s S-300 sale to Iran have invariably called it the S-300 in the headlines, there is no legitimate reason why this latest headline would merely refer to the items deployed as “long-range missiles.”

It’s not just sloppy to do that.  It’s obscurantist.  No one refers to the S-300 in a professional context as a “long-range missile.”  It’s an air defense missile system.  That’s what matters about it.  That’s the first thing you say about it.

Iran Revokes Russia’s Use of Air Base, Saying Moscow ‘Betrayed Trust’

By ANNE BARNARD and ANDREW E. KRAMERAUG. 22, 2016

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Iran on Monday annulled permission for Russian planes to fly bombing runs into Syria from an Iranian base, only a week after having granted such extraordinary access, saying that the Kremlin had been unacceptably public and arrogant about the privilege.

The about-face and the explanation for it from Iran’s foreign and defense ministries appeared to reflect deep-seated and longstanding suspicions of Russia despite their tactical alliance in the Syria war.

The abruptness of the termination, even if temporary, also suggested that the Russians, eager to show widening influence in the Middle East, had seriously misread how a public announcement of their use of the Hamadan base in western Iran would reverberate among Iranians.

Russia state news media had been trumpeting the deal as a sign that its partnership with Iran was deepening. No foreign power has based forces in Iran since World War II.

In response to the annulment, the Russian military issued a statement saying its planes had already completed their missions.

“The Russian military aircraft involved in launching airstrikes from the Iranian Hamadan base against terrorist sites in Syria successfully accomplished the tasks they had set out to complete,” Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in a statement. “All aircraft involved in this operation are now on Russian territory.”

IMPEACH OBAMA FOR SMUGGLING CASH TO IRAN

From Carter to Obama, it’s time for politicians to pay a price for appeasing Iran.

Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

The Islamic Republic of Iran was designated a state sponsor of terrorism in 1984. That move came several years after Iran had seized American hostages while demanding $24 billion in cash and gold to be paid into a Muslim bank for their release.

The total, according to Secretary of State Muskie, came out to $480 million per hostage.

Carter eventually reached a deal to release billions to Iran while Muskie claimed that the ransom payment meant that “the United States emerged stronger and Iran emerged weaker.” Such counterintuitive arguments have become a staple of Obama rhetoric which insists that appeasing terrorists somehow weakens them and strengthens us.

Muskie also said the deal would “not to make any arrangement to encourage terrorism in the future”.

That of course was not true. Paying out ransom to terrorists only encourages more terrorism. While the hostages were freed, the terror tactic never went away.

In 1989, Iran was still trying to blackmail President George H.W. Bush by offering to free yet more American hostages in exchange for around $12 billion in assets. The hostages had been seized by terrorist affiliates of Iran which by now had been on the state sponsor of terror list for nearly half a decade.

Exclusive: Iran sought chemical and biological weapons technology in Germany

Berlin – Iran’s proliferation activities span eight German states and involve a range of activities to advance its chemical and biological warfare capabilities, as well as its nuclear and missile programs.

The vast scale of the Islamic Republic’s network to obtain nuclear and missile technology goes beyond what was disclosed in recent German intelligence reports released on Thursday.

The Jerusalem Post has examined intelligence data and reports from the 16 German states, which included new information on Iranian chemical and biological weapons programs. Half of Germany’s state governments reported in their 2015 intelligence documents attempts by Tehran to secure nuclear-related goods.

The state of Saarland wrote in its 2015 intelligence report released last month that “so-called danger states, for example, Iran and North Korea, make efforts to obtain technology for atomic, biological or chemical weapons.” Iran also seeks “missile delivery systems as well as goods and know-how for proliferation.”

According to the intelligence report from Rhineland-Palatinate state, which was also released in June, Iran was one of the foreign countries that targeted “German companies” in the state whose equipment could be “implemented for atomic, biological and chemical weapons in a war.”

“Special attention was paid in the report’s time period to proliferation relevant activities of Iran, Pakistan and North Korea,” the document stated.

The weapons of mass destruction could be used by Iran to pursue “political goals,” it added.

“These goods could, for example, be applied to the development of state nuclear and missile delivery programs,” the Rhineland-Palatinate intelligence agency wrote. Because of contacts between the Rhineland-Palatinate’s Agency for the Protection of the Constitution (comparable to Shin Bet) and local companies, “illegal exports and the reputational damage” for the businesses could be prevented, the agency wrote. It is unclear how many attempts the Islamic Republic made to illegally secure technology and goods in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Iran announced it is suing the U.S. in the International Court of Justice because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to grant approximately $2 billion in Iranian assets to American families impacted by alleged Iranian-organized terror attacks.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he intends to pursue the case until the assets are designated to Iran.

“We shouldn’t remain silent vis-a-vis this event and we officially filed a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice yesterday and will pursue the case until attaining results,” Rouhani said on Wednesday, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

According to officials from Iran, this allocation of assets violates a 1955 treaty. As a result, the assets were not subject to be redistributed.

True to Tehran: Russian Loan Reflects ‘Mutually Beneficial Partnership’

Russia’s move to provide a 2.5-billion-euro loan to Iran indicates that even anti-Russian sanctions cannot stop Moscow from expanding its economic ties with its southern partner, Omid Shokri Kalehsar, a US-based Iranian energy expert, told Sputnik.

In an interview with Sputnik, Omid Shokri Kalehsar, a US-based Iranian energy expert, heaped praise on Russia for providing Iran with a 2.5-billion-euro loan, which he said reflects Moscow’s drive to bolster economic relations with Tehran in the face of anti-Russian sanctions.

The interview came a few days after Russia’s Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak said that Moscow is ready to loan Tehran up to 2.5 billion euros for infrastructure projects.

Kalehsar recalled that Moscow is currently constructing a bridge to link the Crimean Peninsula with mainland Russia, a 4.5-billion-dollar project which is being implemented amid sanctions that the EU, the US and other countries slapped on Russia.

“But in spite of this, Russia is ready to take the most difficult and important decisions, including on the issue of granting a hefty loan to Iran. In any case, everything is based on a mutually beneficial partnership with both parties due to get their desired benefits,” Kalehsar said.

Two Weeks in January: America’s secret engagement with Khomeini

  • 3 June 2016
Jimmy Carter and Ayatollah KhomeiniImage copyrightGETTY IMAGES

On 27 January, 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini – founder of Iran’s Islamic Republic, the man who called the United States “the Great Satan” – sent a secret message to Washington.

From his home in exile outside Paris, the defiant leader of the Iranian revolution effectively offered the Carter administration a deal: Iranian military leaders listen to you, he said, but the Iranian people follow my orders.

If President Jimmy Carter could use his influence on the military to clear the way for his takeover, Khomeini suggested, he would calm the nation. Stability could be restored, America’s interests and citizens in Iran would be protected.

[…]

Khomeini in FranceImage copyrightGETTY IMAGES

In a first-person message, Khomeini told the White House not to panic at the prospect of losing a strategic ally of 37 years and assured them that he, too, would be a friend.

“You will see we are not in any particular animosity with the Americans,” said Khomeini, pledging his Islamic Republic will be “a humanitarian one, which will benefit the cause of peace and tranquillity for all mankind”.

Khomeini’s message is part of a trove of newly declassified US government documents – diplomatic cables, policy memos, meeting records – that tell the largely unknown story of America’s secret engagement with Khomeini, an enigmatic cleric who would soon inspire Islamic fundamentalism and anti-Americanism worldwide.

This story is a detailed account of how Khomeini brokered his return to Iran using a tone of deference and amenability towards the US that has never before been revealed.

IRANIAN DEFENSE MINISTER BLAMES JEWS-US FOR TRIGGERING WARS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES……

Sadly there are those within the ”close the borders” movement in Europe who parrot the nonsense of this Jew hater.

All the while it is the Muslims themselves that trigger their wars because it’s within the inherent nature of totalitarian Islam to do so. Sunnis hating Shiias and vice versa has nothing to do with Jews and the US, but with Islam. Self determination for the Arab/Muslim regions of the Levant and Maghreb after the fall of the Turkish Empire was overseen by the victorious powers of Europe in the form of mandates.

This was the first ”democracy project” of the region. It ended in failure (except in Israel) due to the totalitarian nature of Islam, there were no civil societies in existence to bring forth civil rule. That dynamic is still with us to this day, and violence that erupts there is the result of their culture steeped in Islamic thinking and sharia based law.

NOTE: That some Westerners still don’t get that, speaks more about their own Jew hatred than about the targets of their ire.

“What is today happening in Syria and Iraq is a deep-seated US-Zionist conspiracy that has triggered war in Muslim territories.”

Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan told reporters on Tuesday that the Iraq and Syrian conflicts are a result of a deep, long-term plot hatched by Israel and the United States, according to reports by Iran’s Press TV.
“What is today happening in Syria and Iraq is a deep-seated US-Zionist conspiracy that has triggered war in Muslim territories,” said Dehqan.
According to the defense minister, Israeli is responsible for equipping the terrorists who then lead attacks on innocent Muslims.
“Zionists are supporting terrorists and equipping them,” said Dehqan according to the report.

They are “pitting them against Muslims. What is important for them is to guarantee the Zionist regime’s security,” he added.
