IRAN REVOKES RUSSIAN USE OF BASES IN WAR WITH ISLAMIC STATE, PUTIN SAYS MISSIONS ALREADY COMPLETE……

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

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.”

IRANSOM, OBAMA’S ILLEGAL SMUGGLING OF CASH TO ISLAMONAZI REGIME DESERVES IMPEACHMENT…….

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.

IRAN’S PERSECUTION OF ITS LARGEST MINORITY, THE B’HAIS……

Gatestone:

The Iranian regime that hangs and imprisons peace-loving people for their beliefs is today a major threat to the free world. Iran is building a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Denis MacEoin, in our latest video, asks: Does it not seem perverse that the UN, the EU and the US administration smile fondly on the persecutors and defame the protectors?

The January release of four Americans prisoners from Iran allegedly coincided with a secretly-arranged US cash payment of $400 million to Tehran,The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The report cited US and European officials along with members of Congress who were reportedly later briefed on the airlift that rendered the first payment of a $1.7 billion deal the White House administration settled with Iran over a disputed, failed arms deal signed before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

BENJAMIN WEINTHAL: IRAN SOUGHT CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WEAPON TECHNOLOGY FROM GERMANY…….

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 Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan

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.

The Iranian Special Forces sent to Syria in mid-March suffered their first loss Sunday, as one officer was killed during battles with Syrian opposition factions, news sites affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards reported Monday.

The Special Forces officer, Mohsen Qitaslo, fought within the ranks of Brigade 65 in the Iranian army, known as the “brigade of green berets.”

Tabank, an Iranian news site aligned with the Revolutionary Guards, reported: “The Iranian army sacrificed its first martyr,” but did not specify where the officer was killed.

The reports about the officer’s death contradict previous declarations of the Iranian Army Ground Forces’ Deputy Commander, who stated that the Special Forces that are sent to Syria will perform an advisory role and will not participate in the fighting.

ANDREW MCCARTHY: OBAMA GIVE IRAN ACCESS TO U.S. FINANCIAL SYSTEM, FLOUTS TERM OF HIS CHERISHED DEAL……

Obama Gives Iran Access to the U.S. Financial System, Flouting the Terms of His Cherished Iran Deal

President Obama and his subordinates blatantly lied to Congress in order win approval – or, more accurately, to escape disapproval – of his Iran nuclear deal. At a time when jihadist mass-murder attacks are surging, and when the Syrian regime’s war crimes are abetted by Iran’s jihadist armed forces (which include Hezbollah and the Quds Force, both formally designated terrorist organizations), Obama’s deal infuses Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and an unapologetic enemy of the United States, with over $100 billion in sanctions relief . . . some slice of which, the Obama administration admits, will be diverted to terrorism.

This is old news, of course. Yet, it is worth repeating, for two reasons.

First, these are impeachable offenses of the first order. As I recounted in Faithless Execution, the Framers of our Constitution counted presidential dishonesty in dealings with Congress and presidential concealment of dealings with foreign powers as among the most egregious high crimes and misdemeanors.

Second, Obama is doing it again.

To persuade the Republican-controlled Congress to refrain from rejecting the Iran deal, even under the shamefully indulgent Corker-Cardin process to which GOP leaders agreed, the Obama administration made two key promises. The first was that, if Congress went along with Obama on dismantling nuclear sanctions (for the purportedly greater good of winning the terror regime’s commitment not to build nuclear weapons), the administration would stand strong on other sanctions – sanctions that punish Iran for its terror promotion, ballistic-missile development, and related aggression. The second promise was that Iran would continue to be banned from the U.S. financial system.

AUSTRIAN PRESIDENT SAYS LIFTING SANCTIONS ON IRAN IS LARGELY IN U.S. HANDS…….

Iran’s historic agreement with world powers went into force on January 16, ending a 13-year standoff over Tehran’s disputed nuclear programme and lifting punishing sanctions on its economy.

But more than two months later Iran is still struggling to make business with the West and banks are facing restrictions in the United States on handling transactions involving the Islamic republic.

“Austria alone cannot lift the sanctions. The EU cannot do it alone too, but it’s the international community that should do it,” Fischer said, in comments published late Monday by IRIB.

“The US also plays a role in this regard,” said the Austrian president.

Our finest hour. (Image: IRIB News)

In case you were wondering, the leaders of Iran’s military despise America.  If they hadn’t made that clear before, they have now.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is planning to build a statue of the US sailors who were captured in Iranian waters earlier this year, a senior officer said.

The provocative proposal is likely to cause outrage in the US and be seized on by Republicans opposed to President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Commander Ali Fadavi, the head of the Guard’s naval forces, said the monument of the surrendering Americans would be a “tourist attraction”.

“There are very many photographs of the major incident of arresting US Marines in the Persian Gulf in the media and we intend to build a symbol out of them inside one of our naval monuments,” he told Iran’s Defense Press news agency.

The knife-twisting is getting a little silly at this point – seriously, they don’t have something better to do? – but it’s probably going to continue.

That’s in large part because Obama is still afraid to have it said that Iran did anything wrong in the incident.  The Tower pointed out something interesting this week in that regard.

In testimony given to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter offered vigorous criticism of Iran’s behavior during the incident (transcript from The Tower; emphasis added):

I want to say some words about Iran’s treatment of our sailors on Farsi Island back in January. As I made clear then Iran’s actions were outrageous, unprofessional and inconsistent with international law and nothing we’ve learned about the circumstances of this incident since then changes that fact. It’s because of Iran’s recklessness and destabilizing behavior in that part of the world that DOD remains full speed ahead in our investments, our planning, and our posture to ensure that we deter Iran’s aggression, deter its malign influence and uphold our ironclad commitments to our regional friends and allies, especially Israel, to whom we maintain an unwavering, and unbreakable commitment.

The Nuclear Iran Deal gave a green light to Iran's missile launches.

The Nuclear Iran Deal gave a green light to Iran’s missile launches.

This U.S. administration’s  desperation to conclude the Iran Nuclear Deal – whatever its actual terms or deterrence power – led to the likelihood that Iran’s latest militaristic provocations are immune from censure. That is so, despite America’s stated horror at Iran’s actions and even despite the Obama administration’s claim that Iran’s actions are a breach of its international law duties.

On March 8 and 9, Iran conducted missile tests from several different locations within its borders. The missiles were launched by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps with the express intent “to demonstrate Iran’s deterrent power and the Islamic Republic’s ability to confront any threat” against it, according to an official statement.

A Revolutionary Guard commander was quoted as saying that the missiles were designed to hit Israel, “our enemy the Zionist regime,” from a safe distance. The missiles were reportedly stamped with the words, in Hebrew: “Israel should be wiped from the pages of history.”

Obviously what Iran did was belligerent, but did it violate any agreements to which it should believe itself to be bound, and which would provide for international censure?

Daniel Greenfield

For the longest time, Obama and his cronies would say that, “All options are open” or “All options are on the table” when it came to Iran. Gullible folks were supposed to hear that and think that Iran’s nuclear program was going to be taken out. Actually it meant that all options were open for appeasing Iran. Which is exactly what happened.

But for anyone foolish enough to still believe, Joe Biden is still talking “All options are open”.

Vice President Joe Biden warned Wednesday that the United States leaves open all options to take action against Iran for activity outside the nuclear deal, sharpening American concern after apparent back-to-back missile tests by Tehran.

Yes, all options are open.

Option 1: Humbly beg Iran to stop

Now that it’s once again in good stead with its Jew hating European partners, they let their gloves once again fall to the ground.

Blatant anti-Semitism: New wave of anti-Jewish hatred by Iranian regime

The Iranian regime has started a widespread campaign to portray the Saudi royal family as Jewish and at the same time, calling Jews filthy anti-Islamic conspirators responsible for all the Middle Eastern crisis and blood shedding. This campaign is well illustrated in a speech by panahian, the most renowned preacher close to the Supreme Leader and tied to revolutionary guards during a state organized rally in defense of Yemeni rebels. He declared: “For the last hundred years, the Jews in the region have been committing atrocities and killing Muslims. We blame anti-Islam Jews and Zionists for the plight of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain, and Yemen. We also blame the rich Jews and evil Zionists for all the troubles faced by people in Europe and America. Once we save the region from the evil oppression of the anti-Islam Jews, then we will have also saved the people of Europe and America from the oppression of the Zionists.”
