On Friday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei while addressing a ceremony to mark the 27th anniversary of the sad demise of the leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Khomeini at his Mausoleum southern Tehran, said that trusting Washington is a big mistake as most hostilities against Iran comes from the “US and the evil Britain”.
Khamenei said that Washington was never sincere about implementing the so-called P5+1 and Iran nuclear agreement (JCPOA). Therefore, Tehran has no intention of cooperating with the US and UK on regional issues.
“This is an experience that even if we give up, the US will never stop its destructive role,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, noting that despite the fact that Iran has fulfilled its commitments based on the nuclear deal, the US broke its promises (here).
Khamenei gave credit to Iranian nations’ commitment to Islamic revolutionary spirit for country’s rise to the top regional ‘power club’ (US, China, Russia, Germany, Japan, India and Iran), according to Jewish Adam Morris Garfinkle’s The American Interest, a bimonthly public policy online magazine.
Jewish media, as usual distorted Khamenei’s statement and added Israel’s name with the US and UK, even though Khamenei didn’t bother to mention the ‘Middle East cancer’ even once. It reported Khamenei’s statement with heading: “Don’t Trust “Great Satan” US, “Evil” Britain, and Israel.”
In April 2016, World nuclear watchdog claimed that Tehran had fulfilled more than its JCPOA commitments.
American investigative journalist and author Gareth Porter (with Jewish family roots) has claimed that Israel and Saudi Arabia are wrong to fear that JCPOA would influence America’s relations with its regional allies, as after ten months since signing the agreement, Obama has not changed his support for Israel, Saudi Arabia or Egypt.
“The agreement is clearly not going to influence regional politics by depriving Iran of nuclear weapons that Iran has had no intention of obtaining anyway. The real issue is whether the process of negotiating has created a new US-Iran political dynamic that can influence the outcomes of the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Even so, it is highly doubtful that the agreement will have a very deep impact on US policy in the next few years or affect any of the intertwined conflicts that are reshaping the Middle East,” he said.
On May 11, 2016, American Jewish writer, radio-talk host and author Steve Lendman said that America was never sincere in its nuclear agreement with Iran. “Longstanding US policy toward Iran remains hostile – solely for its sovereign independence, unrelated to its nuclear program, well known to be peaceful without a military component or intention to have one,” he said.
