Iran marks takeover of America’s ‘Den of Espionage’

On November 4, hundreds of thousands Iranians from all walk-of-life held rallies in several cities to commemorate the take-over of America’s Den of Espionage in Tehran by university students 38 years ago.

November 4, which falls on the 13th day of the Iranian calendar month of Aban, is also known as the Student Day and the National Day of the Fight against Global Arrogance.

Some participants in rallies shouted Death to America and Death to Zionist Entity. Iranian leaders claim such slogans are allowed because they’re not against American people or Jews (there are 30,000 native Persian-speaking Jews in Iran) but are against their governments and Zionists who spread hatred toward Muslims, Islam and Iran.

In an address to the Saturday rally in Tehran, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said that the US’s foreign policy had failed.

American politicians and people are having second thoughts about their choice of president and acknowledge that the US has been defeated in materializing its foreign policy. The US has long been dealt blows by our country and our region and thus regularly bares its warmongering teeth. And when a missile is tested thousands of kilometers away, after issuing empty threats, all their president does is put out a tweet,” he said.

On November 4, US-Canadian author of several books, journalist and peace activist, Robert Fantina in an article explained: Why do Iranian celebrate the taking over of US embassy?

After the 1979 Islamic Revolution – the change from a corrupt, pro-Western, puppet government, to an independent democracy with leaders more concerned with the welfare of their people than filling their pockets with money from oil revenues, did not please the US, which severed relations with Iran and has continued to demonstrate hostility toward Iran since then. At US insistence, the United Nations passed resolutions condemning Iran’s nuclear program. It must be emphasized that Iran is a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), and its leaders have repeatedly said that its nuclear program is for peaceful uses only. This is in sharp contrast to Israel, which possesses nuclear weapons and has refused to sign the NPT,” Fantina said.

In 2015, Iran reached an agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with China, France, Russia, Britain, the U.S., Germany and the European Union, that regulated Iran’s nuclear development program. In exchange, sanctions against Iran would be lifted. Why such an agreement was necessary is a mystery to this writer; it makes no sense to reach such a treaty with a nation whose leaders have repeatedly proclaimed they have no interest in nuclear weapons, at the same time that the U.S. provides $4 billion annually to the rogue, nuclear-armed, apartheid regime of Israel,” Fantina added.

As Trump continues to threaten Iran at the behest of Netanyahu, he is risking a war that will kill millions, and that the US cannot possibly win. Unlike neighboring Iraq, which the US easily and criminally vanquished in 2003, Iran is a large nation, with a powerful military, and equally powerful allies, including Russia. Such a war would quickly expand beyond Iran and the US. It would not accomplish US imperial goals.  All it would do is bring unspeakable carnage to the Middle East, and possibly beyond, and increase tenfold hostility toward the United States. This would be a tragedy of historic proportions, one made worse by the fact that it is entirely preventable,” said Fantina.

As Iranians celebrate the taking of the US embassy and the end of the repressive influence of the United States, people of good will around the globe wish them continued success. The continued growth in power and influence of Iran in the Middle East can only be a positive factor for that region, and the rest of the world. The US may be able to slow that progress, but it cannot prevent it from happening,” Said Fantina.

Robert Fantina who visited the Islamic Republic earlier this year, writes his personal blog here. I was introduced to Mr. Fantina after reading his last year article, entitled, Why every President since Truman has been an Israel Hawk. Listen to Robert Fantina below.

Khamenei tells Putin to ‘ditch US dollar’

IMAGE635837052860624240[1]

Russian president Vladimir Putin was in Tehran on Wednesday for bilateral talks between Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan . Putin held meeting with Dr. Rouhani and Aliyev (a Shi’ite Muslim) in Tehran. Afterwards Putin visited Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei. This was Putin’s sixth meeting with Ayatullah Khamenei.

During the meeting Khamenei highlighted the success of military cooperation between Iran and Russia with Syrian army in Syria – Khamenei said: “The defeat of the US-lead coalition supporting terrorists in Syria is an undeniable fact, but they continue to hatch plots.”

Khamenei also told Putin that both countries should utilize their recent useful regional and bilateral experiences to boost cooperation between the two countries.

Full resolution of Syria’s crisis needs strong cooperation between Iran and Russia. Our cooperation can isolate United States. This cooperation will restore stability in the region,” Khamenei told his guest.

Khamenei also suggested that both countries can nullify US sanction, isolate the US by various methods such as eliminating US dollar, replacing it with national currencies in bi/multi-lateral trade transactions.

Israeli propagandist in a smearing campaign are highlighting Khamenei’s suggestion to Putin to dump US dollar – but the idiots don’t realize that Putin in September 2017 instructed Russian Duma to pass a law making the ruble the main currency of exchange at all Russian seaports by next year.

Nearly 23 countries are abandoning US dollar including China, Germany, India, France and Britain in the near future. Latin America’s largest oil exporter Venezuela stopped accepting payment in US dollar in September 2017.

Both Iran and Russia are under US sanctions – Iran since 1980 and Russia since the Ukraine crisis.

In response Putin praised Iranian policies to bring peace and stability in the region. He also assured Russian support for 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the six world powers (US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany) which Donald Trump dumped last month.

According to some western financial pundits, if Russia begin dumping its treasuries en masse in the open market, then it could trigger an immediate US$16 trillion return of all dollars offshore as countries already wanting to get rid of US currency find the perfect opportunity to not be left holding the bag.

Khamenei: Trump is a Moron

On Wednesday, a group of outstanding university students and Olympiad paid a courtesy visit to Iran’s supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.

While commenting on Donald Trump’s decision to walk out of the so-called P5+1 and Iran nuclear deal, Khamenei told the group: “I do not want to spend time to answer the foul-mouthed president of America. It is a waste of time that one wants to respond to him.”

The Leader said one should not expect Trump not to be angry against Iranian force which supported Syrian and Iraqi people against ISIS terrorists created by the United States and its anti-Islam regional allies.

As a servant of international Zionism, America is creator of ISIS and the Takfiri terrorism, and then you expect that it would not be angry against Iranian force (IRGC) which stood against its proxy ISIS,” Ayatollah Khamenei noted.

The Leader also noted that unfounded remarks by US officials indicate their mental backwardness regarding issues of Iran and its neighborhood.

“Trump’s stupidity should not distract us from America’s deceitfulness. If the US tears up the deal, we will shred it.”

The Leader advised the European leaders to ignore Trump’s threats against the nuclear agreement for their own national interests – and avoid meddling in Iran’s defense issues.

On October 11, 2017, Roula Khalaf, deputy editor of Jew-owned Financial Times in an article warned that Trump’s idiotic policy on Iran had embolden North Korea.

On October 20, London-based independent writer, Neil Thompson in an article claimed that Trump’s unilaterally decertification of the so-called P5+1 and nuclear agreement in 2015 would prove that why both China and North Korea cannot trust Washington as it invaded Iraq, Libya and Syria after those countries surrendered their WMDs.

In October 2015, American writer and author Dan Sanchez in an article had predicted that the bloody war by Israel and its Zionist lobbyists in the Middle East was destined to fail.

Watch the controversial nuclear deal explained below.

Israel: Iran is not leaving Syria

Last month, Zionist entity’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Mossad head Yossi Cohen claimed that the defeat of ISIS in Syria was in fact a victory for Iran.

Ronen Solomon, Israeli military analyst in his recent research report for Israel Occupation Force (IOF) has also agreed with the country’s serial liar Netanyahu.

Iran has transported armaments and fighters, especially those belonging to Hizbullah assisting the Assad regime in Syria. Estimates say 21,000 passengers and 5,000 tons of supply have passed between the Tehran and Abadan route to Damascus. Flights leave at night to prevent satellite monitoring. Iran has started operating assembly and unloading points, reflecting recent news the Islamic republic started constructing armament production infrastructures in Syria and Lebanon, including long-range missile manufacturing plants,” says Solomon’s research.

Netanyahu told Russian president Vladimir Putin about Solomon’s research which didn’t convince Putin during their recent meeting in Sochi.

Last Thursday, a senior delegation of Israelis started consultations with their US counterparts to begin planning a wider strategy to pressure Iran, Hezbollah and other Shiite militias to leave Syria as, they hope, the war in Syria peters out,” wrote Eli Lake at Jewish Bloomberg website on August 23, 2017.

Franklin Lamb, PhD, US-Christian academic, writer and author of 1983 book, Sabra-Shatilla Massacre, based on his wife’s Janet Lee Stephen’s (died 1983) testimony on what the Israeli army and its Lebanese Christian ally Fhalangist militants did inside those two Palestinian refugee camps on September 15-18, 1982. The 1,700 refugees butchered by the anti-Muslim bastard were mainly children and women.

Lamb has lived in Lebanon since 1980s. After the US-Israeli insurgency in Syria, he has been living in Damascus. He works with Christian charity, Meal for Syrian Refugee Children, Lebanon. He is also a visiting professor at Oxford Universities Middle East Center, St Anthony’s College, UK.

Last month Dr. Lamb in a talk he held at Oxford University said that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has succeeded in securing his authority for the time-being – thanks to Iranian and Hizbullah help.

According to Syrian and Russian military sources in Syria with whom I have discussed this subject at length, Iran has no plans to leave Syria. It plans to stay. Given growing fatigue by opposition supporters here in the region there is not much the West wants or can do about this reality short of another long-term war in this seemingly cursed region. There is also little that the Russians can do about this reality although they are increasingly unhappy about what they are witnessing from Tehran and its Shia militia across the region,” said Lamb.

The Jewish army is too weak to fight a conventional war with Iran. It has been defeated by Hizbullah fighters in South Lebanon in 2000 and 2006 while its proxies Syrian rebels have finally been routed out. It’s Israel’s nuclear arsenal which it has used to bully its Muslim neighbor and its western allies.

Ayatullah Khamenei mocks Donald Trump

On Wednesday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Khamenei mocked Trump in a Tweet message: If US has any power, they better manage their country, tackle #White Supremacy rather than meddle in nations’ affairs. #Charlottesville.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump in a press conference blamed both Friends of Israel who clashed in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. He called them trouble-makers and racists.

You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now,” said Trump.

While pro-Israel Republican and Democrat leaders criticized Trump for blaming both sides – his ally, Benjamin Netanyahu, refused to condemn either the White supremacists protesters or the counter protest lead by rabbis. Some bloggers have claimed the event was a false flag planned and conducted by CIA.

This is not the first time Khamenei has mocked Trump and other Israeli poodles controlling Uncle Sam. On Christmas Eve, Iran’s Supreme Leader took to Twitter to show some facts. Hashtaging #Ferguson and #Gaza, he tweeted that if “Jesus were among us today he wouldn’t spare a second to fight the arrogant & support the oppressed.” He also shot off a few tweets hashtaging #BlackLivesMatter. Four days later, he commemorated the Wounded Knee massacre by asking on Twitter if killing millions of Native Americans and enslaving Africans constitute American values?

Khamenei in the past had ridiculed Trump over his terrorism remarks, and military threats.

Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, former 2-term president of Islamic Republic of Iran before becoming country’s Supreme Leader in 1989, is the only Muslim world leader who have stood fast for the oppressed Muslims in Palestine, Kashmir, Bosnia-Herzegovina, India, Chechnya and around the world.

Khamenei’s moral support for Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah, Hamas and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has long pissed-off the organized Jewry. In 2014, ADL wrongfully accused him of denying the Holocaust.

Khamenei is a great supporter of women’s rights. He has called them being stronger than men. He has always supported the religious freedom for non-Muslim minorities such as Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians. Both Christian (2.5 million) and Jewish (30,000) communities have reserved seats in the Majlis (parliament).

Leaders from 100 nations attend Rouhani’s inauguration

Today, presidents, prime ministers and government representatives from 100 countries arrived in Tehran to attend Iran’s president-elect Sheikh Hassan Rouhani’s inauguration ceremony at the Iranian Majlis (parliament).

On Thursday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei endorsed Sheikh Hassan Rouhani as country’s new President.

The first president to land at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport on Tuesday was Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe. He was followed by Afghan president Ashraf Ghani, and former president Hamid Karazai, Serzh Sargsyan, president on Armenia, president Igor Dodon of Moldova, Fuad Masum, president of Iraq – and government ministers from Russia, China, Britain, Germany, Qatar, North Korea, South Africa, Pakistan, India, Syria, Swaziland, Italy, France, Austria, Bosnia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Austria, Lebanon, and Turkey.

The European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini is also in Tehran to attend the swearing-in-ceremony for Iran’s president-elect Sheikh Hassan Rouhani.

Sheikh Naim Qassem, deputy leader of Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah and Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, the secretary-general of Palestinian resistance Islamic Jihad arrived on Friday to attend the event.

Former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also attended the ceremony.

Overall, eight presidents, 19 parliament speakers, nine vice presidents and prime ministers, seven parliament vice-speakers, 11 foreign ministers and 46 special envoys from different countries are attending the ceremony.

Listen below president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani’s inauguration speech.

Former White House press secretary Jay Carney (Jew) said last year: “Should this new Iranian government choose to engage substantively and seriously to meet its international obligations and find a peaceful solution to this issue, it will find a willing partner in the United States.”

On August 2, 2017, Judas-goat Donald Trump signed a wide-ranging piece of legislation, the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, which expands existing sanctions and imposes new ones on Russia, Iran, and North Korea. The legislation was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate on July 27, 2017.

Iran Air gets its first female CEO

EP-IEE Iran Air Airbus A320-211  On July 16, 2016, Farzaneh Sharafbafi, PhD, was inaugurated as the first female CEO of Iran’s national airline (HOMA)since it was established in the 1940s by former King Reza Shah Pahlavi.

This is not the first time Sharafbafi, 44, has earned a “first female” title; she was Iran’s first woman to earn a PhD in Aerospace. She also led several aviation projects and taught various aerospace courses at the Amir Kabir University of Technology and Shahid Sattari University of Aeronautical Engineering.

Sharafbafi replaces Farhad Ali Parvaresh who was elected to the Board of Governors at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in June this year.

IATA is a trade association of the world’s airlines, consisting of 274 airlines, primarily major carriers, representing 117 countries, which account for carrying approximately 83% of total air traffic. It is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with Executive Offices in Geneva, Switzerland.

Since partial lifting of the Crippling Sanctions against the Islamic Republic last year, Iran is buying 220 new aircraft from Airbus, Boeing and ATR, to revamp its aging civilian airliner.

On July 3, 1988, Iran Air flight 655 became the target of America’s space terrorism which resulted in the murder of 290 passenger onboard.

The other countries which have female airline CEOs are Malaysia, Kuwait, Syria, UK, Ireland, Namibia, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Tanzania and Ecuador – but some of the airlines with female CEOs are local.
