Iran Reopens Uranium Plant in Isfahan and Has Re-Started Production

I tried to compile important events and articles since July 18, 2015 about nuclear agreement 
Following is the latest articles i suggest to read:

4 July2018 - Although Iran has pledged to keep to the terms of the country’s landmark nuclear deal, even after U.S. President Trump pulled America out of the accord, its officials say that it has restarted production at the Isfahan plant, which produces materials needed to make enriched uranium.
This appears to be a warning that is aimed at pressuring Europeans and others to come up with the means to circumvent the new American sanctions.
Many international organizations are pulling back from deals with Tehran and the country’s currency has faced an enormous drop against the dollar.

There are strong concerns over Iran’s possible response to a confrontation with the West.

Iran under sanctions for human rights violations

The US Treasury has hit Iran’s infamous Evin prison and the terrorist group Ansar-e Hezbollah with new sanctions for "serious human rights abuses" against political dissidents.
On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Steven T Mnuchin said that these sanctions, which have also been applied to six individuals and a communications technology agency, relate specifically to the roles these people/entities played in the "brutal crackdown" of protesters during the ongoing anti-regime uprising in Iran.
Six officials and three state entities are now blacklisted, including Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison where tens of thousands of political prisoners have been executed through the past four decades, including 30,000 members and sympathizers of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in a span of a few months in the summer of 1988 in which a majority of them were executed in the Evin Prison.
Heads of Iran’s state TV/radio IRIB, the regime’s club-wielders Ansar-e Hezbollah and a variety of officials specifically involved in imposing internet censorship on the country’s very restive population.

After Nuclear Deal, the West Should Focus on Real Change

On May 8th, US President Donald Trump announced an American withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Up until the last moment, European officials were urging the administration to change course. Now, the discussion needs to widen its focus.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) JCPOA) appeared to many policymakers as key to resolving the crucial issues of the region. But the reality is that changing conditions within Iran and among its expatriate community point to other opportunities to resolve more than just the nuclear problem. The leading opposition coalition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has consistently insisted that neutralizing the threat of the Iranian nuclear program would require the change of the Iranian regime by the Iranian people

U.S. Secretary of State lays out plans to counter the Iranian regime’s malign behavior

May 21, 2018 - In a speech to the Heritage Foundation, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo laid out the roadmap for the U.S. policy toward the Iranian regime after President Donald Trump ended the United States participation in the nuclear deal with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“Two weeks ago, President Trump terminated the United States participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, more commonly known as the nuclear deal,” Pompeo said, stressing that the decision means the U.S. will no longer accept wealth creation for the heads of the Iranian regime of the launching of missile on neighboring countries or expansions of regional power at the expense of other countries.

Maryam Rajavi: International support for the uprising in Iran, the demands of their just resistance for freedom and justice

Two weeks after withdrawing from JCPOA, the United States Secretary of State in his first public message recognized the Iranian people’s uprising against the religious dictatorship and the biggest sponsor of terrorism and called for an international front against the Iranian regime.
The Secretary of State referred to major flaws of the JCPOA and the “blood money” offered to the regime and individuals like Qassem Soleimani, an IRGC Commander, and recalled Security Council resolutions to reiterate that any new agreement with the Iranian regime must include a halt to nuclear enrichment, unqualified access to all nuclear sites, end to proliferation of ballistic missiles and development of nuclear-capable missile systems, respect for the sovereignty of Iraq and disarming proxy forces, withdrawal of all forces under Iranian command from throughout the entirety of Syria, end to launching missiles and threatening its neighbors, and end supporting terrorist groups in Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan. Addressing the clerical regime, he emphasized that negotiation is possible if they changed behavior.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran for the period of transition of power to people, described the recognition of people’s uprising and the demands of the Iranian people’s just resistance in the past 37 years as a major step.  “Change in the behavior of the mullahs will inevitably lead to the change of their regime. Democratic change in Iran is the only solution to the problem in Iran and the crisis in the region. Forming an international front against the religious and terrorist dictatorship in Iran is requisite for establishment of peace, security and coexistence in the region and world over,” she stressed.
At the start of the nuclear talks with the mullahs’ regime on November 24, 2013, Mrs. Rajavi had emphasized, “The full implementation of Security Council resolutions, particularly the complete halt to uranium enrichment, agreeing to the Additional Protocol, and the IAEA inspectors’ unhindered access to suspected nuclear centers and facilities are essential for the regime to abandon nuclear weapons.”
Mrs. Rajavi also reiterated immediately after the nuclear deal on July 14, 2015: “Circumventing the six UN Security Council resolutions and an unsigned agreement, which lacks the requirements of an official international treaty, would neither block the mullahs' pathways to deception nor their access to a nuclear bomb... and the other important issue is that the money poured into the regime’s coffers must be placed under strict United Nations monitoring to ensure that it addresses the Iranian people's urgent needs, especially the unpaid meager salaries of workers, teachers, and nurses, and is used to provide food and medicine to citizens.” “Otherwise,” she said, “Khamenei will use these funds to further the regime’s policy of export of terrorism and fundamentalism in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon as well as to fill the coffers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, adding, “It is the Iranian people's right to know what they will get out of this agreement, upon which the mullahs' president claimed their water, bread and environment depended.  Any agreement that disregards and fails to underscore the Iranian people's human rights will only embolden the regime in its suppression and executions. Further, it would trample upon the rights of the Iranian people, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the United Nations Charter.”

Iran's Ballistic Build Up
By: Nikoo amini "Riyadh Daily"

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) published a new book including some of the most secretive aspects of the Iranian regime’s missile program.
This book includes the details of 27 missile-launch locations mostly located along Iran’s southern and western borders in addition to this, displayed locations and details of 15 sites where Iran’s missiles are built.
Obviously Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Aerospace Force is in charge of the regime’s ballistic missile program and the US can’t deal with the nuclear program without dealing with its missile program and its meddling in the countries of the region.
It is worth noting how the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), first blew the whistle back in 2002 on Iran’s clandestine nuclear program and its suspicious of seeking nuclear weapons.
The Iranian regime already has the capability to conduct a non-nuclear strategic attack against U.S. and its allies and Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), didn’t cover Iran’s ballistic missile program.

Iran's Ballistic Build Up

Washington, May 9, 2018 – The NCRIUS live presentation exposing Iran's missile and nuclear weapon's program has just started presenting a number of experts on missile and nuclear weapons and security matters. They are including Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, Dr. Olli Heinonen, Ambassador Robert Joseph, Matthew Kroenig, Rebeccah Heinrichs and Alireza Jafarzadeh.
A panel discussion on “Iran’s Ballistic Buildup”. Alireza Jafarzadeh said “You cannot deal with Iran nuclear program without addressing the missile program; you cannot deal with the missile program without dealing with the policies of the regime including the support of terrorist groups." …Iran will not move toward a nuclear weapon overtly but they will continue to move covertly.
Amb. Robert Joseph said during the “Iran’s Ballistic Buildup” panel discussion said: “The fact that Iran has an ICBM program, and the only purpose of an ICBM program is for a nuclear program, I think is very important to address.”

The meaning of U.S. exiting the Iran nuclear deal

May 8, 2018 - Fulfilling one of his key campaign promises after nearly 15 months into his term, U.S. President Donald Trump announced today his decision to have the United States pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Describing Iran as a “regime of great terror” and “murderous,” Trump said:
“United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal… If I allow this deal to stand, there will soon be an arms race in the Middle East… the highest level of economic sanction will go into effect. Any nation supporting Iran’s nuclear drive will be sanctioned… Powerful sanctions will go into full effect.”
Trump also sent a message to the Iranian people.
“The people of America stand with you… The future of Iran belongs to its people,” he said.
After this major milestone, what is the meaning of such a monumental development for the Iranian regime?

U.S. Treasury Department declares new sanctions policy against Iran

Following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the nuclear deal with the Iranian regime, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin confirmed the sanctions in a statement:
“President Trump has been consistent and clear that this Administration is resolved to addressing the totality of Iran’s destabilizing activities. We will continue to work with our allies to build an agreement that is truly in the best interest of our long-term national security. The United States will cut off the IRGC’s access to capital to fund Iranian malign activity, including its status as the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, its use of ballistic missiles against our allies, its support for the brutal Assad regime in Syria, its human rights violations against its own people, and its abuses of the international financial system.”
The IRGC is the main actor behind the Iranian regime’s ballistic missile program and its meddling in the countries of the region. The IRGC benefitted immensely from the nuclear accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which gave it access to billions of dollars to fund its terrorist activities abroad and its weapons programs. Cutting IRGC’s access to financial resources will deliver a serious blow to the Iranian regime’s regional ambitions as well as its security and suppression apparatus at home.


Democratic change and an end to the religious fascism ruling Iran is a requisite for regional peace, democracy, security, and stability
After several decades of appeasing the religious fascism ruling Iran and victimizing the Iranian people and Resistance, and simultaneous with the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – JCPOA), the President of the United States declared that the lavish payments to the clerical regime by the previous U.S. administration had been disastrous, adding that the sinister regime ruling Iran, the leading state sponsor of terror in the world today, “has funded its long reign of chaos and terror by plundering the wealth of its own people.”
Speaking on behalf of the Iranian Resistance, which first revealed the Iranian regime’s secret nuclear program and facilities and has been the flag bearer of a non-nuclear Iran, Maryam Rajavi said, “Eradicating the clerical regime’s nuclear and terrorism threats means getting rid of the regime in its entirety. A regime based on the principle of velayat-e faqih (absolute rule of the clergy) cannot exist without terrorism, suppression, and weapons of mass destruction.”
“As in the past, any future investment in this regime is doomed to failure. As the Iranian Resistance has persistently declared, standing with the criminal mullahs, and empowering those responsible for, and the perpetrators of, the massacre of the Iranian people’s valiant children, will only embolden the religious fascists’ warmongering, export of fundamentalism and terrorism,” she emphasized.
Rajavi added, “As the nationwide uprising in December and January demonstrated, the Iranian people want to be liberated from religious oppression and despotism. Democratic change in Iran is inevitable and a free Iran is within reach. The end of religious dictatorship in Iran is a requisite for regional peace, democracy, security, and stability. This is the only way to end war and crisis in the region and avert a larger war.”
“The United Nations Security Council must take up and refer to an international tribunal the dossier on the leaders of the Iranian regime’s terrorism and countless crimes against the Iranian people, especially the massacre of political prisoners,” she underscored.

U.S. sanctions head of Iran's judiciary, others, over human rights abuses
WASHINGTON (Reuters) JANUARY 12, 2018 -
The United States imposed sanctions on 14 individuals and entities on Friday for human rights abuses in Iran and supporting Iranian weapons programs, including the head of Iran’s judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.
The U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement that Larijani, a close ally of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is “responsible for ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing, the commission of serious human rights abuses against persons in Iran or Iranian citizens or residents.”
A Chinese national was sanctioned for acting on behalf of Wuhan Sanjiang Import and Export Co LTD, which is already under sanctions for doing business with an Iranian firm “owned or controlled” by the military.
Other sanctioned entities included another China-based company, Bochuang Ceramic Corp, and the Iranian firm it sought to supply with a chemical compound used in the transmission of electrical signals.

US imposes new sanctions against Iran, threatens to scrap nuclear deal
Sputnik, Dec. 22, 2017 - The last year saw many controversial steps taken by the administration of US President Donald Trump, but the harsh policy on Iran, including the introduction of new sanctions against Tehran over its ballistic missile program and refusal to certify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), are among the most notable issues worth reflecting upon.
Trump’s policy on Iran created uncertainty and anxiety among the international community, which fears that the US president may follow through on his threats to scrap the deal signed in July 2015 by Iran, the European Union and the P5+1 group of nations comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany after 20 months of difficult negotiations.

Baghdad Post, December 04 2017 - Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Bahram Qassemi, said Monday in an interview with state media that France should know Iran’s missile program is not an issue that can be negotiated, Reuters reported.
”French official, other officials, who want to speak about Iran’s affairs need to pay attention to the deep developments that have come to pass in the region in past decades and the big changes between the current situation and the past,” Qassemi said Monday, according to state media.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will definitely not negotiate on defense and missile issues.”

IAEA Inspectors Can No Longer Verify that Iran is in Compliance with the 2015 Nuclear Deal
Mosaic Mag. November 16, 2017 - On Monday the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its eighth quarterly report on the Islamic Republic’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the 2015 nuclear agreement is formally known. Although the document does not mention any evidence of violation of the deal’s terms, write David Albright and Andrea Sticker, it is “so sparse in detail that it is impossible to conclude that Iran is fully complying.” The IAEA, they explain, has simply not been able to conduct the inspections necessary for verification:

Tehran accuses U.S. of 18 violations of nuclear agreement
Washington Free Beacon, October 25, 2017 - Iran has taken steps in recent days to file what it claims are 18 instances in which America violated the landmark nuclear agreement, a move that could set the stage for Tehran to abandon the deal and lay blame on the Trump administration, according to regional reports and sources familiar with the matter.
On the heels of an effort by the Trump administration to tighten the nuclear accord while still upholding U.S. commitments under it, the Iranian Foreign Ministry has submitted to European Union leaders a plethora of information recounting what it claims are 18 separate violations of the deal by the United States, according to Iran's state-controlled media.

Draft Legislation Regarding Iran Nuclear Deal
Republican Senators Bob Corker and Tom Cotton have drafted some legislation with regards to the Iran nuclear deal and Trump’s recent decertification of it. The legislation would impose tough terms on the nuclear deal and would ensure that sanctions are restored if Iran carries out any testing on a ballistic missile that has the capability of carrying a warhead. It would also ensure that sanctions are reimposed if the Islamic Republic refuses nuclear inspectors access to any sites in the country.

US Strategy on Iran Regime
United States President Donald Trump has made it very clear that he is not a fan of the Iran nuclear deal. He has been criticizing it since before he even took office. At the recent United Nations General Assembly, he described it as an “embarrassment” to the United States and very one-sided.
His predecessor, President Barack Obama has been criticized for his leniency on Iran. He made numerous concessions to Iran during the nuclear agreement negotiations and he had a policy of appeasement that basically let Iran get away with murder. Literally.

FOI Requests Over Iran Deal and the Role of IRGC
 A Conservative organisation in the US has sent out Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests to four key agencies to uncover the truth about the 2015 nuclear deal.
In this new request, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), is asking the State Department, the Department of the Treasury, the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to provide all of the information surrounding Iran Air’s use of civilian aircraft for military and terrorist activities of Iran regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
In their statement, the ACLJ said: “What they knew matters because, in the Iran Deal, they agreed to let Boeing and other plane manufacturers sell aeroplanes to Iranian airliners like Iran Air.”
FOI Requests Over Iran Deal and the Role of IRGC
Middle East Will Never Be Peaceful If Iran Regime Is Allowed to Continue as It Is
Even though the Iran nuclear deal has been in place since 2015, Iran remains one of the most serious threats to the security in the Middle East. For as long as the Iranian regime is in power, there will never be peace in the Middle East.
Many said that the nuclear deal would tame the Iranian regime’s behaviour but it seemed to have the opposite effect. Iran became more and more emboldened and it knew that the Obama administration - that bent over backwards to get Iran’s signature – would turn a blind eye and remain silent to all of the acts of belligerence it was carrying out.
Middle East Will Never Be Peaceful If Iran Regime Is Allowed to Continue as It Is
Why Iran's Nuclear Deal Backfired
When President Barack Obama struck a deal with the Iranian Regime in 2015, it was always about something more than just the nuclear programme. It was about reshaping US policy in the Middle East.
He wanted to work with the Iranian Regime, even if that meant risking traditional US alliances in the Middle East, which were, if nothing else, maintaining stability in the region.

Nikki Haley: Iran Regime Hides Behind Its Assertion of Technical Compliance With the Nuclear Deal
"As a council, we've adopted a dangerously shortsighted approach," Haley, the top American diplomat at the U.N., said during a Wednesday meeting. "Iran must be judged in totality of its aggressive, destabilizing, and unlawful behavior. To do otherwise would be foolish." ‘Washington Examiner’ reported on Wednesday October 18. An excerpt of the report is as follows:
Haley remonstrated with the other members of the international body, saying they have ignored Iran's repeated violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions. The meeting was supposed to be devoted to the revival Israeli-Palestinian peace process, but Haley used it as an early opportunity to advance President Trump's new strategy on Iran

THE HILL:Iran is violating the deal
Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, it is violating its letter. The prologue to the deal explicitly states: “Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.” This reaffirmation has no sunset provision: it is supposed to be forever.
Yet the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recently stated that it could not verify that Iran was “fully implementing the agreement” by not engaging in activities that would allow it to make a nuclear explosive device. Yukiya Amano of the IAEA told Reuters that when it comes to inspections, which are stipulated in Section T of the agreement, “our tools are limited.” Amano continued to say: “In other sections, for example, Iran has committed to submit declarations, place their activities under safeguards or ensure access by us. But in Section T, I don’t see any (such commitment).”

Trump's Iranian nuclear deal speech ricochets across the Middle East
President Trump’s Iran strategy speech of Oct. 13 rattled Tehran and excited a large portion of the Iranian population, including the Iranian opposition. Trump’s speech, while going over a long list of Tehran’s nefarious activities, referred to the people of Iran as the main victims of the Iranian regime. He also refrained from certifying that Iran complied with the deal but did not withdraw from the political commitment the major powers and Tehran made to abide by the accord for 10 years from Aug. 2015.
After punting the decision to Congress for 60 days, research conducted for this post suggests Trump should gain congressional support to withdraw from the deal, renegotiate a better accord, and press our allies to adopt a strategy against Iran of renewal of sanctions until the Iranian regime changes its unacceptable behavior.

Trump Decertified The Iran Nuclear Deal. Now What?
After describing it as the “worst deal ever” and threatening to scrap the entire accord, U.S. President Donald Trump has decertified the Iran nuclear deal, describing it as against U.S. national security interests, and outlined significant measures targeting the regime in its entirety. Trump took a major step in ordering the Treasury Department to fully sanction Iran’s notorious Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), describing the entity as Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's "corrupt terror personal terror force and militia."
This is a major U.S. policy shift vis-a-vis Iran dating back to the early 1950s since Eisenhower turned against the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh.
The U.S. Treasury Department followed suit by designating the IRGC "pursuant to the global terrorism Executive Order (E.O.) 13224 and consistent with the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act." Such a move against the Guards will have major implications in Iran and the region.

Iran Regime's Way of Deceiving the West
- Earlier this week, the Atlantic published an article by the Foreign Minister of Iran Javad Zarif. As per most comments from the Iranian regime, the piece is full of lies and deceptions. The truth and reality is twisted. However, one thing was very clear from the article – Iran’s goal is to become a regional power and it is doing so by making the West believe that it is not happening.
Speaking about the accuracy of the country’s missiles, Zarif said that Iran is trying to avoid “civilian or non-combatant deaths”, but we know that it is to intensify the threat and to improve its capabilities of causing further destruction in the Middle East

Iran's secret sites linked to nuclear weapons development revealed
EXCLUSIVE –  President Donald Trump is expected this week to “decertify” the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known simply as the Iran deal, declaring that the agreement reached in 2015 by the U.S. and five other international powers is not in America’s national interest. The matter will then be tossed back to Congress, which will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose hefty pre-2015 sanctions.
While the President’s likely move has generated wide condemnation from foreign policy leaders — who reiterate that the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has maintained Iran is in compliance — a new 52-page investigative report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), entitled: “Iran’s Nuclear Core: Uninspected Military Sites,” obtained exclusively by Fox News and slated for release Wednesday, asserts that the country’s nuclear weapons program has far from halted.
“It has been known for years that Iran has two nuclear programs — one is civilian and the other, the military, has the goal of giving Iran its first nuclear bomb,” Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the Washington office of the NCRI, also referred to as the Iranian Resistance, and considered the primary opposition coalition to the clerical administration of Iran, told Fox News. “The civilian sector of the nuclear program has systematically provided a plausible logistical cover for the military sector, and acts as a conduit for it. The military aspect of the program has been and remains at the heart of Iran’s nuclear activities.”

Trump's decertification of the nuclear deal could be what Iran's rulers fear most

Trump's decertification of the nuclear deal could be what Iran's rulers fear most
by Amir Basiri | Oct 6, 2017,
The nuclear deal should be recognized for what it is: a deal that limits, but does not block, Iran's path to nuclear weapons. Likewise, the Iranian regime should be recognized for what it is: a rogue regime that poses a multitude of threats to international peace and security, all of which have to be addressed. Nuclear weapon development is only one of them.
Varying sources have confirmed that President Trump will decertify the Iran nuclear deal come an Oct. 15 deadline. This will mean that the president does not see the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the deal is formally known, as vital to the national security interests of the U.S. It will then be up to Congress to decide whether to scrap the deal and reimpose sanctions on the Iranian regime or to preserve it and take other necessary measures to address its flaws.
The question now is what this move means for Iranian regime, and how its leaders will react? Iranian officials have threatened to walk away from the deal and the enrichment of uranium on several reprises in the past months as Trump intensified the tough talk against the accord's failures and Tehran's unlawful ventures.

Time running out for Iran's nuclear deal By Struan Stevenson
Sept. 29, 2017- Time running out for Iran's nuclear deal
By Struan Stevenson
With only days to go before U.S. President Donald Trump must decide if he will grant the Iranian regime compliance with the nuclear deal on Oct. 15, the sands of time are rapidly running out for Tehran's rulers.
Trump told a meeting of the United Nations in September that the deal was "an embarrassment" to the United States. If Trump refuses to certify Iran's compliance with the deal, which seems highly likely, Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to reapply the crippling sanctions lifted by former President Barack Obama after the deal was signed.
There is increasing speculation that the Iranian regime is financing North Korea's nuclear program, despite worldwide condemnation and the imposition of heavy sanctions against Kim Jong Un's rogue state even by China. A former U.S. senior diplomat has said that when Iran wants nuclear weapons it simply has to write a check and hand it to the North Koreans.
U.S. National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster said in September, "The President has already declared that the Iranian regime is not living up to its obligation. They are certainly not living up to the spirit of this agreement. Instead of contributing to regional peace and security, as the deal calls for, Iran is using proxy forces and a terrorist network to foment violence and victimize innocents across the greater Middle East. The Iranian regime is seeding these networks with increasingly destructive weapons as they try to establish a bridge from Iran to Lebanon and Syria."
Obama's policy of appeasement toward Iran was a huge mistake. The nuclear deal was totally one-sided, giving endless concessions to the Iranian regime. Its leniency made it easy for the mullahs continually to run a cart and horses through the terms of the agreement with virtual impunity. This in turn encouraged the North Koreans to accelerate their own nuclear weapons' program, encouraged by the apparent weakness of the West. There is now a growing awareness that the best way of dealing with North Korea is by taking tough action against Iran.
Iran's People And The Nuclear Deal
Sept. 29, 2017- Iran's People And The Nuclear Deal
Heshmat Alavi 
Discussions are continuing as we speak over the fate of the highly controversial Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Advocates and opponents are going the limits to present their case prior to the October 15th deadline when US President Donald Trump is due to determine the status of Iran’s compliance with the accord.
While this is a very important discussion, what unfortunately goes neglected is the status of the Iranian people who should be the first beneficiaries of such an accord that led to many sanctions being lifted from the Iranian regime.

Alejo Vidal-Quadras, a Spanish professor of atomic and nuclear physics, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Examiner in which he explained that Iran has a long history in obstructing investigations into its nuclear programme and this has not changed in the two years since the nuclear deal was signed.
Vidal-Quadras, who is also president of the Brussels-based International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) which seeks to gain justice for the victims of the 1988 Iranian massacre, wrote: “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action effectively skirted this issue by making it theoretically possible for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ask for and receive access to military sites, but only following a month-long process during which the Islamic Republic could work to erase evidence of past activities.”
This is especially troubling when you consider that the IAEA’s reports are the chief reason why many countries besides the US believe that Iran is in compliance with the deal. The problem is, how can you be in compliance with anything if you are always allowed to delay investigations until you’ve hidden the evidence?

Appeasing Iran failed-How to move on?
By: Shahriar Kia
Riyadh Daily, September 28, 2017 - The Iran nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was eventually signed in 2015 after a series of initially covert, and thus overt talks amongst various parties.
While the deal was boasted of enjoying a long slate of strengths, its imperfections were cloaked by JCPOA advocates – led by senior Obama administration officials – and allowed the broader challenges posed by Iran to go unanswered.
All, from left to right, liberal to conservative, Democrat, and Republican, must come to realize that the rendered cons of the Iran nuclear deal completely overshadow the very few pros.

Latest news of political pirisoner Saeed Shirzad

Political Prisoners’ Health Conditions Deteriorating

Health conditions of political prisoners in Iran’s Rajaee-Shahr prison have deteriorated as prison officials and regime’s judiciary prevent the prisoners from being sent to health centers. According to reports, the political prisoner Saeid Shirzad and a number of other political prisoners staged a two-month hunger strike starting from July 23, 2017, to protest against pressures applied to prisoners by Rajaee-Shahr prison officilals. Shirzad was later beaten and transferred to prison’s section 3 in mid-September, 2017.

Shirzad was first arrested after launching a relief operation for Azarbayjan’s quake-stricken residents. He was released 19 days later on bail. On June 2, 2014, Shirzad was once again arrested in his workplace in Tabriz Refinery and transferred to Evin Priosn. He was later sent into exile in Rajaee-Shahr prison for his pursuing prisoners’ protests.

After going through 15 months of uncertainty and imprisonment, Shirzad was charged with ‘gathering and colluding’ and sentenced to five years in prison by Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court Judge Abolghasem Salavati. This was while the political prisoner was earlier sentenced to one year suspended imprisonment, a sentence that was turned into a prison term in the new court ruling.

Among his activities, Shirzad was involved in relief operations in Bushehr’s quake-stricken areas as well as Sistan and Baluchestan’s deprived ones. Shirzad was also involved in educating quake-hit children in deprived areas, providing healthcare training and facilities, outfitting accommodations set up for earthquake survivors, providing standard electrical wiring for earthquake victims’ residing conexes, and communicating with quake-hit and suffering children so as to prepare them for dealing with their unfavorable conditions.

Saeed Shirzad is a children's rights defender in Iran. He has worked with children’s rights NGOs including the Association in Support of Children’s Rights, Children’s Home of Shoosh and Society in Defence of Street Children, and has traveled throughout Iran and internationally to provide humanitarian assistance to children and advocate for their rights. Saeed is known in particular for his work in defence of street children, which includes organisation training, education, and health services for homeless, disadvantaged, and refugee children in collaboration with UNICEF. He has helped recruit lawyers to support refugee and asylum seeking families to obtain legal documentation, and identified and provided direct support to more than 100 families working in sweatshops.
Saeed Shirzad, an ethnic Kurd and children’s rights activist was arrested in the earthquake-stricken town of Varzaghan in East Azerbaijan province by security agents from the town of Ahar. Agents purportedly arrested Shirzad as he administered aid to earthquake victims in the afternoon of Tuesday, August 21, 2012. Following his arrest, Shirzad was transferred to Ahar prison.

Golrokh Iraee appealing for the life of hunger striking prisoner
Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee who has been imprisoned just for writing an unpublished book against the inhuman punishment of stoning, has sent out an open letter in which she has called on the international community to take action to save the life of political prisoner Saeed Shirzad who is still on hunger strike.
Saeed Shirzad, who has been imprisoned for his activities in defense of children's rights, has been on hunger strike for nearly two months in protest to the raid on political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, transferring them to a high-security ward and confiscating the properties they have procured at their own expense.
Speaking out from behind bars, Ms. Iraee held European governments accountable for the life of this political prisoner since they turn a blind eye on flagrant violations of human rights in Iran to continue their commercial trade with the ruling clerical regime. In part of her letter, she points to the raid on the political prisoners' ward in Gohardasht and writes:
Implementation of this arbitrary decision by Mardani (warden of Gohardasht Prison in Karaj) indicates not only his personal spite but also the spirit of maximum lawlessness in this chaotic country. A country where the prosecutor and the judiciary must have been able to account for such volume of savagery if they were qualified. Here, anyone who has greater power is able to roam around as they wish and those who are knowledgeable enought to protest against this savagery become victimized.
All of these have happened in days and hours when Rouhani (the mullahs' president) was showing off his smile in front of flashing cameras from different countries.
Indeed, who is responsible for Saeed (Shirzad)'s life? Those powers who give credibility to this naked violence with their silence and smiles? Or the Prisons Organization that puts the likes of Mardani in these positions and gives them the license to play with the lives of people and do not account to anyone? Or the Judiciary and the Prosecutor's Office whose lack of independence has been proven time and again over the past years? Or the agencies that make such arrests and the interrogators who roam around like this?
The world's organizations and institutions who defend human rights must know that the lives of our friends and loved ones are in hands that are at their throats.
Saeed Shirzad continues to insist on his protest and hunger strike against the savagery of prison authorities. Saeed's life is in danger and our silence doubles the gravity of this threat.

Farangis Mazloum, the mother of the prominent political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, sent a message on Tuesday, March 13, describing her son’s situation who has been on dry hunger strike in the Greater Tehran Prison.
Her message, being published on social media says; “I, Farangis Mazloum, the mother of Soheil Arabi who was arrested and imprisoned for his political activities, am calling on all friends and relatives to join me to hold our New Year ceremonies in front of the prison, were he is facing an inevitable death. Soheil went on hunger strike in February in protest to assault, battery, and forcible transfer of two female political prisoners, Golrokh Iraee and Atena Daemi, to the notorious Gharchak prison. In response to his protests, the prison authorities attacked, beat and insulted him. He was eventually transfer to the Grand Tehran Prison, where criminal prisoners are held. The regime tried hard to break his will and force him to stop his strike but he stood firm. Today, they broke my heart by denying me a visit to my son. My heart is shattered into thousand pieces, knowing that I may never see him alive again.

Urgent: Moving Message of Political Prisoner on Dry Hunger Strike, Soheil Arabi on the Verge of Demise

The Political prisoner Mr. Soheil Arabi on the forty-sixth day of his strike at Tehran's Great Prison has sent the following message:

“Place your Nowruz spread or sofreh (Persian New Year tradition) in front of their (regime’s) prison gates.

It's dry and weird in the torture chamber dying with suffering from depression, after an unsuccessful strike.

I prefer the first option of "death" to surrender to the oppressors.

Breaking my strike means: me, Arash, Golrokh and Atena (Three other fellow political prisoners), should continue to endure the torture that is getting worse every day.

A true combatant, even inside the prison, will never stay silenced in the face of oppression of himself and of people who sacrificed for them. Now that they torture my friends, I scream with all my heart, and I call on all the supporters of the political prisoners not to abandon me and my fellows in this path.

Place your Nowrus spereads in front of their prisons and, by holding the photos of political prisoners, firstly send a messages to your heroes that they are not left alone; secondly warn the torturers that they are not allowed to torment us as they wish.


The mourners have no chance for ‘Eid’ (the persian New Year celebration)

O Eid turn back from Iran since we have got no Eid in Iran

When the parrot in a cage says Happy Eid

One knows it is a mere imitation and not real

There might die in the cell an innocent prisoner

But, the criminal oppressor will never last forever

After three days of saying no to water, food, feed, and even serum, you feel like you are a desert. A desert that gets dry at any moment. Every moment you feel dry. No! No! Drops of water cannot save me from drying.

I want a flood

A flood that topples this apparatus of oppression, which has enchained the highbrows and devotees of the deprived, from Mina Zarrin to Athena Daemi, who spent the best days of their young days in prisons of “the Islamic Republic”. And also From Mohammad Nazari; Ali Moezi; Arash Sadeghi to Alireza Tavakoli

That was all to reach a point today that neither the “reformers” nor “the principalists” were sympathetic to us, and we should put a happy ending to this sad and bitter story as soon as possible.

The winter will be ended.

Soheil Arabi

The political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, has started dry hunger strike since Monday, March 5.

In a message from prison, addressing the regime and its judiciary this political prisoner said: “You violated my rights. At least let me donate my body organs. I doubt that I will remain alive for one or two more days. I do not eat food or drink water and I do not even allow injecting serum.

I should have been freed on August 29 according to the law but I am still in prison and I don’t even have my rights like my own bed and separation of crimes according to the regulations of prisons organization and I ,like many other political prisoners, am incarcerated in the ward of ordinary prisoners who often incited to harass us.

After I was transferred to the prison of greater Tehran, I was threatened with death and rape and I defended myself hardly. Prison officers and Guard, incited prisoners or infirmary nurses allow themselves to insult us, and when I respond, they telling us to have good manners and morals.

Our crime is that we do not remain silent in the face of oppression.

Now that you do not free me and do not even let me stay with my friends like Arash Sadeghi or Manoochehr, at least let me donate my body parts and organs.

Soheil Arabi’s Health Reported Dire On 38th Day Of His Hunger Strike

38 days into his hunger strike, political prisoner Soheil Arabi is in poor health with very low blood pressure. He had been denied medical access despite his dire health condition.

Iran’s regime has accused Soheil Arabi of being a “national security threat” for opposing the state. His life is in danger, yet refuses to go back on his demands.

On the 33th day of his hunger strike, Soheil Arabi sent a message from the Great Tehran Penitentiary:

“Anyone who has little intelligence, accepts that enlightening free thinking and criticism, is not a crime but a service to mankind. But turbaned, kaffiyeh-wearing mullahs first sentenced me to death and then to three years for fighting ignorance and superstition, human rights activism, helping labour children, and supporting imprisoned workers and political prisoners of conscience. I endured three years and six months of imprisonment and physical and psychological torture. According to the very expired rules of the Islamic Republic, I should have been released on September 18, 2017. But not only did they not release me, but they hurt my family. They forced my wife to separate from me. They arrested my mother and exiled me to the Great Tehran torture chamber. When a political prisoner finishes his or her prison sentence and they do not release him or her, they say that the prisoner is doing “Melli-Keshi” *. In the eighties, many political prisoners did the “Melli-keshi”. They were executed even after their sentences were served. Now I’m spending the fifth month of my “Melli-keshi”. During these five months, I suffered all kinds of physical and psychological torture. For the fact that I became the title holder and the world’s top webmaster, the embezzlers and fraudsters were charged to beat me. I was exiled to quarantine, and there, an officer suddenly hit my head and, after falling down, kicked my kidney and I could hardly escape and other prisoners rescued me. In the same quarantine that Sina Ghanbari was killed and they said he had committed suicide. Fraudulent and reformist-like prisoners have always been reporting false reports against us, who are demanding the overthrow of the theocrats, to enjoy the advantage of religious visits, leave and hospitals. They exiled my comrades, Golrokh Iraee and Atena Daemi, to Qarechak prison and I went on hunger strike in protest. But instead of addressing my protest and listening to my talk, they brutally exiled me to the Great Tehran Prison. At the time of arrival, 15 soldiers attacked me with water pipes and batons. I went to coma due to hunger strike but they even feared sending me to the hospital. They forced me into a clinic and gave me infusion. I experienced very difficult conditions. But I continue to strike. Because we did not commit any crime that could be so cruelly punished. Yes, an anarchist dies to not accept oppression.”

In a February 12 voice recording sent out from The Great Tehran Penitentiary addressing political and human rights activists who asked Soheil Arabi to end his hunger strike, the political prisoner insisted on continuing his strike. Soheil Arabi stated “Ending my hunger strike means succumbing accepting punishments that I did not deserve, not even one day of it… I have spent more than 1,700 of the best days of my youth detained in Khamenei’s prisons.”
Soheil Arabi, a writer, blogger and activist, went on hunger strike on January 25, 2018, to protest the illegal banishment of Atena Daemi and Golrokh Iraee to the notorious Qarchak Prison in Varamin, outside Tehran.
On Monday, January 29, Arabi was transferred to the Greater Tehran Prison and was severely beaten, according to an informed source.

Hunger Striking Political Prisoner Severely Beaten And Transferred To Greater Tehran Prison

On Monday, January 29, political prisoner Soheil Arabi was transferred to the Greater Tehran Prison and was severely beaten.
According to an informed source, on January 28, Soheil Arabi was summoned and was then transferred to the quarantine in Evin Prison’s Section 1.
“He was then summoned again and told that he would be transferred to Rajaie Shahr Prison. But at noon, instead of being taken to Rajaie Shahr, he was taken to the Greater Tehran Prions,” the source said. 
“When they reached the prison at 15:30, prison officials along with 10-12 soldiers tore off his clothes and severely beat him. The guards used batons and kicked him in his back, face and leg continuously with their boots. Soheil Arabi’s face, nose and feet were injured and his whole body was bruised,” the source added. 
After the beatings, prison authorities kept Soheil Arabi without clothes in the prison courtyard to force him to give his consent to those that beat him.
“Don’t think that this is Evin Prison and you aunties house!” a prison official taunted him.
“This is the end of the world and hell! Don’t think that because you’re on hunger strike, your voice will be heard!” he told him.

Jailed activist Soheil Arabi says no one attended to his complaint on torture

Following a claims of Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ezhei, spokesman for the judiciary, on the prohibition of torture in Iran, political prisoner Soheil Arabi wrote a letter from prison about the tortures and pressures he was subjected to. His letter reads in parts:
I was arrested once on December 7, 2013, and I was kept in solitary confinement until January 2013 in the 2A Sarallah Revolutionary Guards Corps Detention Center.
During the 58 days of solitary confinement, I was repeatedly tortured both psychologically and physically. I was hanged by my feet, subjected to mock execution, and threatened with the rape of my wife. All my confessions were made under torture. I was severely beaten upon my arrival at 2A.
This November when I was beaten and threatened to death, instead of punishing the perpetrators, I was detained for 28 days in quarantine in Evin Prison deprived of phone calls and visits and was beaten by other prisoners on two occasions.

Political Prisoner: No Award Can Make Me Happy Unless We Overthrow the Oppressors
In response to the annual Reporters Without Borders Prize awarded to him, the Iranian political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, , said in a letter: “No reward can make me happy unless together hand in hand we uproot the oppression and overthrow the oppressors.”
In part of the letter, this political prisoner currently detained in Ward 8 of Evin prison said: “When most media were in the hands of two factions that compete in censorship and conservatism, when some people were paid to promote illiteracy and superstition to deceive us, I decided to be an independent journalist, so that I could reflect all the truth without retouching and censorship.”

Political Prisoner Held in Dangerous Prisoners Ward and Deprived of Family Visit
The political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, is still held in Hall 8 Ward 8 of Evin prison among dangerous prisoners and deprived of family visits.
In October this year, following Soheil Arabi’s protests against the prison warden who insulted the political prisoners, the prison authorities transferred him to the ward of the prisoners with heavy crimes.
Moreover, another political prisoner, Arash Sadeghi, who also protested the warden for insulting the political prisoners, was transferred to Gohardasht prison in exile.
Initially, Soheil was told that he would be staying in ward 8 only for three days, but he is still held in this ward against the principle of separation of offenses. This caused problems for this political prisoner. On Wednesday, November 1, one of the (dangerous) ordinary prisoners threatened to beat him up with a knife.

Tehran protest responds to call by Soheil Arabi’s mother
Monday morning, October 2, a protest gathering was staged in front of the Iranian regime's parliament in response to a call by the mother of Soheil Arabi, a political prisoner who is on dry hunger strike in Evin Prison.

"Our dear friend, Soheil Arabi, has been on hunger strike for several days because his legal and legitimate demands are not fulfilled and everyone knows that hunger strike is very dangerous.”
Mr. Maleki added: “The innocent mother of this son, after appealing to various organizations responsible for this issue and getting no answer is calling on all people and student activists to accompany her in front of the parliament in order to save his son’s life.”
He also supported Soheil Arabi’s mother and said: “I also ask people to gather on Monday, October 2 in front of the parliament to support this suffering mother and shout out their legal demands.”
According to reports, the Iranian regime security forces, attacked the rally after a few minutes and tried to disperse them but faced with the protestors resistance.
Soheil Arabi's mother thanked all the people who participated in the gathering on behalf of her son and said that her mood is changed.

The political prisoner, Soheil Arabi is on his 11th day of hunger strike on Tuesday October 3rd.
According to reports, an intelligence official in a meeting with Soheil Arabi September 30 asked him to end his strike for the expediency of the regime. The official went to visit Soheil Arabi in ward 7 of Evin prison and said to him that “it would be costly for the system" if he died during the holy month of Muharram.

Prisoner of conscience Soheil Arabi born August 21, 1985, is an Iranian man who has been sentenced to death in Iran on charges of insulting the Prophet Mohammad in his postings on Facebook.
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) agents arrested Arabi at his home in Tehran in November 2013. He then spent two months in the IRGC's Ward 2-A in Evin Prison. During interrogation, he was pressured into confessing his alleged crimes. He was then transferred to Section 350 of Evin, which is under control of the Iranian judiciary. On 30 August 2014, a five-judge panel of Branch 76 of the Criminal Court of Tehran sentenced Arabi to death for "insulting the Prophet of Islam" in eight Facebook accounts allegedly belonging to Arabi.

“I cannot be silent when I see people enduring torture without ever committing a crime. Here is Evin Prison where freethinkers are being punished. Do not tell me to keep silent because remaining silent is the worst betrayal. I am not crying out to save my own life, I want you to hear the voice of our innocence. I want to convey the voice of all jailed freethinkers such as Manuchehr Mohammadali, Mahmoud Beheshti Langroudi, Ali Shariati, Yousef Emadi, Arash Sadeghi, Savada Aghasar and my other friends in Ward 7 whose crime is knowing and expressing the truth. We were tried by judges who are the most corrupt human beings of our time. This is the third year that my daughter is going to school and I am not with her. I have gone on a dry hunger strike because I do not want her to see me in jail any more.
Soheil Arabi a 32-year-old photographer and was arrested by Revolutionary Guards Corps forces in 2013 for publishing his views on Facebook, sent an open letter from prison announcing that he went on a hunger strike on August 24 in protest to “charges brought against his family members by security agents of the Revolutionary Guards Corps”.
