Kerry: ‘Strategic Thinking,’ Not ‘Concession,’ to Leave Iran’s Ballistic Missile Threats Out of Nuclear Deal Talksby Shifra on February 20, 2018
We gave Iran 1.7 billion dollars in cash, and you know what the world gets for it? Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah claims it now has 500,000 missiles pointed at Israel. Hey, great job, Obama! Via CNS. Setting aside Iran’s ballistic missile threats, support for terrorism and regional destabilization when crafting the nuclear deal was not a concession but “strategic thinking” on the part of the negotiators, former Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday. As he has done frequently since leaving office, Kerry used the opportunity of the Munich Security Conference to defend, at length, the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal which President Trump has threatened to abandon. Kerry said that the U.S. recognized that the agreement being negotiated was...

Yes, it’s really crazy, and this parody Twitter account of the Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency, is having fun with the story. Agents! We are proud to introduce our new species in global espionage. The Zionist Chameleon Of Death™. https://t.co/foqGEnb77r — The Mossad (@TheMossadIL) February 13, 2018 But unfortunately, this insanity has led to the recent arrest of environmentalists, and one prominent Canadian-Iranian scientist has died in an Iranian prison, under suspicious circumstances. Via Times of Israel. The former chief-of-staff of Iran’s armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards to “attract atomic waves” and spy on his country’s nuclear program. It was the latest in a long line of incidents of Western countries, including Israel, being accused...

Israel was responding to an Iranian drone entering Israeli airspace earlier in the day. Via Reuters. Anti-aircraft fire downed an Israeli warplane returning from a bombing raid on Iran-backed positions in Syria on Saturday in the most serious confrontations yet between Israel and Iranian-backed forces based across the border. The F-16, one of at least eight Israeli planes despatched in response to what Israel said was an Iranian drone’s incursion into its airspace earlier in the day, was hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed in northern Israel, an Israeli official told Reuters. Both pilots ejected and were injured, one critically. Israel then launched a second and more intensive air raid, hitting what it said were 12 Iranian and...

Dec. 30, 2017 Iranian students scuffle with police at the University of Tehran. AFP/Getty Images Thank goodness we have a president this time around that is on the side of the people. Via Sky News. Donald Trump has warned Iran that the “world is watching” after three days of anti-government protests which appear to be seeing heightened levels of violence. The US Presidents latest intervention, via Twitter, was released as news agencies reported that two protesters had apparently been shot dead by security forces in the western Iranian town of Dorud. There was no independent verification of video, said to show the bodies, that was circulating on social media. Other posts suggested there was growing disruption to internet and mobile...

Maybe we could get Barack a more fitting prize – from a box of Cracker Jacks. Via Daily Caller. A damning report released Sunday by Politico chronicles how the Obama administration undid years of investigations into the terrorist organization Hezbollah in order to appease Iran and pave the way for the Iran deal. The report alleges that the Obama administration let terrorists walk free and halted law enforcement efforts against Hezbollah to help cement the former president’s foreign policy achievement. According to the report, the Obama administration’s backing off on the terrorist organization directly contributed to its growth and enrichment through money laundering and drug trade. It also made Hezbollah much more powerful and dangerous in the region. Politicians in...

If you are a woman in Iran, you are forbidden from dancing, cycling, watching soccer matches, listening to certain music and…Zumba. Via Times of Israel. An Iranian government ban on Zumba classes has Persian fitness fans up in arms this week, after a major sports federation argued the female activity contravenes Islamic ideology. In a letter to Iran’s Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, the Iran Sport for All Federation urged suspension of a number of activities, Zumba among them, “which include rhythmic motions and dance and are unlawful in any shape and title,” the BBC reported…. In the June 7 missive, the federation urged the development of “athletics for everyone in the framework of supreme Islamic ideology.”…. An Iranian...

So we had the Wells Fargo fake account scandal back in the news this week, then the United passenger debacle, now this. For those of us who support capitalism and corporations, this sort of garbage does not help our arguments. Via Free Beacon. U.S airline manufacturer Boeing is coming under renewed criticism following disclosures that its latest deal with Iran is being inked with a senior regime official and leading member of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has sponsored terrorism across the Middle East and is responsible for helping to kill U.S. soldiers. Boeing’s latest deal—which the Washington Free Beacon first reported last week has been put under a critical review by the Trump administration—is being inked with Iran...

Those whacky Iranians are at it again. First, the Hollywood sycophants find an occasion to complain about Trump’s security measures by awarding an Iranian filmmaker, Asghar Farhadi, who then refuses to come to the Great Satan to accept his award because Trump. Then Charlize Theron comes on stage to hand out the award, but Iranian TV paints crude sleeves over the image of her bare arms because the only type of arms Iranians are allowed to view are nuclear...

Maybe if we gave Iran $1B+ in cash, they would be nicer to us. Oh wait…we already did. Never mind. Via Jerusalem Post. A new children’s theme park has opened in Iran according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), The City Of Games for Revolutionary Children park, run by the government, features military checkpoints and plastic bullet-equipped AK47s. The park, which opened near the second largest city in Iran, Mashhad, targets boys 8 to 13 years in age and is free to visitors…. In an interview with Iranian Raja News that was translated by MEMRI, Cultural Center Director Hamid Sadeghi stated, “The children follow various paths simulating fighting the enemy, and at some places, the children learn about...

The following is reported by the former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post. If true, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, this would explain Obama rushing off to Israel to eulogize Shimon Peres, the man who saved Iran from an Israeli strike. And saved his “legacy.” Via Jerusalem Post. In a meeting at the Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa on August 24, 2014, Peres dropped the bombshell in a conversation with me and Jerusalem Post Managing Editor David Brinn. I have thought long and hard about whether to publish it, and reached the conclusion that he wouldn’t have told us if he didn’t want us to. I was editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post at the time and had...

Kudos to James Rosen for teasing this nugget out of State Dept. spokesperson Mark Toner. But apparently the MSM can’t be bothered with this information. Not when Colin Powell really doesn’t like Donald Trump. Because…priorities. Via NY Post. President Obama has said all along that he expected his nuclear giveaway — er, deal — to move Iran toward behaving like a “member of the community of nations.” But now even his own State Department is conceding the reverse may be true. Fox News’ James Rosen this week won that stunning admission from Foggy Bottom spokesman Mark Toner. Three days before, Rosen noted, Iran had threatened to shoot down two US Navy surveillance planes in international airspace. This was just the...

I guess the “Fashion Police” are going more for the “potato-sack” look. Via Times of Israel. Iran’s state TV says police have shut down more than 800 clothing stores across the country for selling “unconventional and inappropriate” attire — believed to mean Western-style outfits and women’s clothing that doesn’t meet strict Islamic requirements. Monday’s report says the raids took place over a 10-day span after authorities first sent official warnings to merchants in more than 3,600 shops. Iranian police and state TV have in recent weeks campaigned against selling second-hand clothes, which are considered “unhygienic,” as well as clothes with English language print on them…. ****************************************************

Next target? S’mores. And don’t say I didn’t warn you! Via Times of Israel. It is Iran’s answer to the Academie Francaise, keeping the Farsi language safe from the corrupting influence of foreign words. Its latest, unlikely target: something called “Nutella Bars.” The state-run Academy of Persian Language and Literature has imposed a number of changes in recent years, particularly aimed at curbing the intrusion of English…. The Academy’s latest target has caused some bafflement: a popular chain of waffle and crepe cafes called Nutella Bars after the Italian hazelnut and cocoa spread in which they smother their snacks. “The authorities said the signs must change. They are very strict about it,” said a staff member at one branch, asking...

Here’s something really baffling: How did these dunces ever get on TV to spout such idiotic comments? Via NewsBusters. On her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell bemoaned the Obama administration’s “unforced error” in sending Iran $400 million at the exact same time American hostages were released from Tehran in January. She was puzzled by the decision: “…they never explained that this other money was going – the $400 million. It’s unrelated to the nuclear deal. Why do it on the same day?” Washington Post political correspondent Anne Gearan was equally baffled: “It’s a mystery why, exactly. They didn’t need to do it that day, there was nothing in particular forcing their hand that we know of to do...
