Iran: Rouhani re-elected President

Iran’s incumbent president Dr. Hassan Rouhani, a Shi’ite cleric, is re-elected for his second and final 4-year term as president of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He secured 57% of the total votes cast in the first ballot. His main opponent Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi, a jurist and Shi’ite cleric, received 38.5% of the votes. Under country’s Constitution candidate needs 50% of the votes to be declared winner.

Over 73% of the 56 million eligible Iranian voters participated in the 12th presidential election since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The Iranian pilots and crew of a British Airways flight who arrived in Iraq on Friday cast their ballots at a polling station set up at the Baghdad International Airport.

On Saturday, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatullah Ali Khamenei said in a statement: “The winner of the yesterday’s elections, is you, the Iranian people, and the Islamic establishment, which has managed to win the increasing trust of this big nation despite the enemies’ plot and effort.”

On Saturday, Russian president Vladimir Putin, European Union’s chief foreign envoy Federica Mogherini, and the ruler of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah have congratulated Rouhani on his re-election.

The Jewish-controlled Western media lead by BBC and CNN have turned Rouhani’s victory into a sign of rejection of anti-USrael statements by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and Supreme Leader Khamenei.

Despite all the Zionists’ glee – the ‘moderate’ Hassan Rouhani, like many Iranian leaders, also believes that only Jihad will liberate Palestine.

Iran’s Constitution is based on Islamic Jurisdiction (Shari’ah) with a blend of some of Western moral democratic practices. There are no registered political parties in Iran – and no foreign lobbying groups as exist in the US, UK, France, Germany, Canada and Australia. A candidate with moral misconduct or criminal record or working for the interests of a foreign country (considered treason under Iranian law) or involved in anti-Islamic Revolution activities, is disqualified by country’s election commission.

The elected president acts as the head of the executive branch. He has the power to appoint members of his cabinet with the approval of country’s elected parliament (Majlis). However, he doesn’t has the power to veto a legislation passed by the parliament. Iran’s president is not the supreme commander-in-chief of country’s Armed Forces. He also cannot appoint judges at Iran’s Supreme Court. Iran’s Supreme Leader, who is not elected by Iranian voters, has the final say in the matters of country’s national security.

Zionist ‘Axis of Evil’ against Iran

British academic, author and anti-war Christian activist Rodney Shakespeare claims that all Western foreign policy is influenced by Zionism. He has also declared the US-UK-Israel and Saudi Arabia being Axis of Evil against the Islamic Republic.

Donald Trump during his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel on May 19, 2017 is going to prove that Dr. Rodney Shakespeare was right in his claim. While in Riyadh, Trump and Saudi ‘royals’, a crypto-Jew dynasty, are going to cement a US$100 billion worth of arms purchase and another US$40 billion Saudi investment in America’s non-military sectors.

In Israel, Trump’s agenda is mostly domestic involving the powerful Jewish lobbying groups and the Jews in his family. Trump gifted US$3.7 billion to Israel last month in addition to US$3.8 billion annual military aid for the next ten years Barack Obama signed last year. Israel’s top newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported last Thursday that while in Israel, Trump is going to announce a Palestinian state without East Jerusalem. He is also going to tell Netanyahu that moving US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is not possible due to international opposition.

However, Trump is expected to assure Netanyahu that bloodshed in the Middle East would continue until all resistance to Jewish occupation of Palestine is destroyed. This is inline with Republican congressional Victory for Israel Caucus, established in April 2017 which demands that Palestinians must be humiliated to the extent that they accept defeat over the battle for an independent Palestinian state.

Donald Trump’s victory was hailed as a booster to a regime change in Iran by Benjamin Netanyahu, Theresa May, and Mohammad bin Salman, deputy crown prince of Saudi Arabia

On May 7, 2017, in a column, former congressman Ron Paul advised Donald Trump to cancel his trips to Saudi Arabia and Israel and keep golfing.

Does he believe he will finally be able to solve the 70 year old Israel-Palestine conflict by negotiating a good deal? If so, he’s in for a surprise,” wrote Paul.

And finally, Israel’s Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Galant called for the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Assad after Israeli Mossad reported that Syrian regime is using Auschwitz gas-chambers to hide its mass-killing of Syrian civilians.

Iran’s ‘Jew tolerance’ angers Israel

Iraqi-born Israeli Mossad agent Rita Katz in video in Persian language shows Zionist terrorists belonging to the US-Israel created ISIL threatening Iran over its support to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

In the anti-Iran propaganda video released late March 2017 – three ISIL thugs condemned Iran’s religious tolerance towards Jews living in the country. They claimed Iran’s paradoxical relationship towards Iranian Jews and Tehran’s often anti-Israel political rhetoric is a Jewish conspiracy.

The video also claimed that Iran supports Hamas to protect the Zionist entity. It’s interesting to note that ISIL militants operate along Israel-Syria border but instead of fighting Jewish army, they threaten Iran which has no common borders with Israel or Syria.

Iran has been home to Israelite communities since biblical times. They have rich Persian history including Persian Queen Esther mentioned in Jewish Holy Talmud. The tombs of Queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai, senior adviser to  King Ahasuerus, located in Hamedan, Iran, are main tourist attraction for Jews from around the world (watch a slide below).

Iran is still home to nearly 30,000 Jews – the largest community inside the region after Israel. Iranian Jews have 15 synagogues, three religious schools and a hospital. There is also a reserved seat in Iranian Majlis (parliament) for the Jewish community along with three reserved seats for country’s Christian minorities.

On 2017 Purim night, in a tweet exchange between Zionist entity prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Siamak Moreh Sedgh, member Iranian Majlis representing 30,000-strong Jewish community – Sedgh called Netanyahu an Insane Vampire for saying that Iran seeks the annihilation of the Jews, just as ancient Persia did in the Purim story.

Before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, nearly 100,000 Jews lived in Iran. Most of their leaders supported King Reza Shah for his recognition of the Zionist entity in 1948. Many Jews held senior positions in the royal court and were members of Reza Shah’s murderous secret service SAVAK which was trained by CIA and Mossad. After the revolution which was welcomed by Jewish religious leaders. But after hanging of some of Shah’s Jew collaborators by the Revolutionary Courts in 1980 – nearly 70,000 Iranian Jews migrated to Israel and the United states.

Interestingly, American Jew academic and former UNHRC envoy for Palestine Richard Falk who along with Ramsey Clark and Philip Luce visited Imam Khomeini living in exile in Paris called him a true revolutionary.

Iran’s constitution identifies Judaism, Christianity and Zoroastrianism among the country’s recognized religions.

 

160,000 Iranians cannot vote in Canada in upcoming election

Ottawa has refused to set-up polling stations for 160,000 Iranian citizens in Canada to participate in Iran’s presidential election on May 19, 2017.

As a Canadian, I’m not surprised by Ottawa’s decision. After all, our foreign minister Chrystia Freeland, is a Zionist Jew from Ukraine.

The decision came a month after Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations in New York sent a diplomatic note to Canadian officials requesting that polling stations be established for the May 19 election, according to the Iranian interests section at the Pakistani embassy in Washington.

The request was denied by the Canadian government, as it generally requires foreign countries to set up their polling stations at their diplomatic missions in Canada, and Iran does not have a diplomatic presence in Canada since September 7, 2012 when Canada’s foreign minister gay John Baird severed diplomatic relations with Iran and asked Iranian ambassador and other staff to leave Canada immediately. Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the decision and congratulated his Canadian poodle, prime minister Stephen Harper.

Iranian foreign minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif has urged the Iranians who live in Canada to cast their ballots in a nearby American city.

In a phone conversation I had with Canada’s foreign minister, she said they were willing to set up the polling stations but were unable to make the necessary arrangements to do so,” Zarif said.

Six candidates are contesting the post to lead the most influential country in the Middle East for next four years. They’re; the incumbent president Hassan Rouhani, a Muslim cleric, Ebrahim Raeisi, a Muslim cleric and law professor, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, Mayor of Tehran since 2005, Es’haq Jahangiri, current vice-president, Mostafa Hashemi Taba, a pro-Rouhani former vice-president, and Mostafa Agha Mirsalim, an engineer by profession.

On Friday, the six candidates rounded up their presidential debates with a hot economic debate cast live on the national TV (here).

The Jewish Lobby loves spreading its Fake News against anti-Israel individuals and countries. So how it could miss Iranian election? On April 27, 2017, the Washington Post predicted ‘moderate’ Rouhani’s re-election but cautioned that the two anti-Israel candidates, Ebrahim Raeisi and Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf might spoil western wish.

Over 56 million Iranian out of 80 million population, are eligible to vote. Nearly 3 million of them live abroad, and polling stations would be open in 103 countries around the world.

Lobby lauds Rouhani for criticizing anti-Israel slogan

On Friday, the media in Israel and ZOG occupied West lauded Iranian president Hassan Rouhani for his criticism of Iranian military elites over trying to sabotage the 2015 JCPOA nuclear agreement between Iran and six non-Muslim Western powers (US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany). Rouhani was referring to firing of two ballistic missiles with a phrase, Israel must be wiped out in March 2016. Watch comments on the first and second debate below.

Iran’s defense spokesperson advised Rouhani and other five presidential candidates to avoid dragging country’s armed forces into their election campaign as country’s executive branch (president) has no jurisdiction over the armed forces. Under Iranian Constitution, the Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei is also Supreme C-in-C of country’s defense forces. He appoints the heads of Army, Air Force, Navy and the Revolutionary Guards.

Interestingly, the same filthy creeps had condemned Hassan Rouhani last year when he told Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, the leader of Palestinian Islamic resistance that Palestinians have no other alternative except to continue their Jihad against the Zionist entity.

In November 2015, Ayatullah Khamenei told university students that raising Death to America and Zionist regime slogans don’t mean hatred towards Jews. Iran is home to largest numbers of Jews (30,000) in region outside the Zionist entity.

In February 2017, in a keynote speech at the 6th International Conference in support of Palestinian Intifada, Ayatullah Khamenei said: The Zionist entity is a dirty page in history which will be closed (here).

J. Michael Springmann, American diplomat and whistleblower, in a recent interview said that Iranians are loyal to their leadership that seeks to move the country forward.

The great majority of Iranians have not benefitted from the nuclear agreement. Only a fraction of Iranian assets in the US and European banks have been released so far. Tehran is not even in the position to spent those funds in the near future.

Nader Habibi, Economic professor at Brandeis University has claimed that US$29 billion out of US$101 billion (excluding US$16 billion worth Iranian cash frozen by Washington in 1980 which is estimated to worth US$37 billion now) has been released. However, Iran has to keep a good part of US$29 billion to maintain a confidence-building measure. He also predict that Tehran wouldn’t be able to increase its financial aid to its “regional proxies” such as Hizbullah, Syria and Hamas, as it needed those funds to modernize country’s oil/gas sector, aviation and healthcare.

Islamic Republic with a population of 82 million has a military budget of US$10 billion for 2017 as compared to the Zionist entity military budget of US$18.6 billion plus US$3.8 billion American military aid for only 7 million population.

Lobby: No woman ever became president of Iran

Last week, Iranophobe Israeli creeps were overjoyed over country’s Guardian Council’s rejection of former president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s bid for next month presidential election. Now they’re whining over the rejection of Azam Taleghani, 73, a former member of Iranian Majlis (parliament).

This year, 1,636 people including 137 women registered to become presidential candidates. The 12-member Guardian Council vetted all except six candidate who will contest the election next month.

On April 19, 2017, Jewish owned Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty published an article, entitled, No woman has ever run for Iranian President. Will Azam Taleghani be the First? penned by its correspondent Golnaz Esfandiari.

What is so special about Azam Taleghani? According to Golnaz Esfandiari, Taleghani had visited holy Auschwitz Camp and was horrified over the death of 6 million Jews by Nazis.

I’m sure after reading the sign at the front door of Auschwitz, Taleghani couldn’t have cried over the death of 6 million Jews. Because the sign says only 1.5 million Jews were killed by Nazis.

Esfandiari also claims that Taleghani said that antisemitism in Iran hurts country’s image in the world. If that’s true – why Iran has the largest Jewish population (30,000) in the region outside Israel? The Jewish community has a permanent member in Iranian Majlis and has seven synagogues in Tehran city alone. Jewish Queen Esther is buried in Iran and the tomb’s maintenance is paid by Iranian taxpayers.

Article 115 of the Iranian Constitution says the president should be elected from among the religious and political rejal. Rejal, which comes from Arabic, means personalities,” claims Golnaz Esfandiari.

That’s BS. Iran’s first president Abolhassan Banisadr (1980-81) and Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (2005-2013) were non-religious academic. All other presidents were Shi’ite cleric but not involved in politics before. Political parties are not registered under Iranian Constitution.

The first presidential election in Iran was held on January 25, 1980. Since then, several women have held the post of vice-President of the country.

How many women Presidents United States had since 1788? NONE.

How many women vice-Presidents United States had during the same period of time? NONE.

Same goes for France, Australia, Mexico, Austria, Belgium, China, Cuba, Croatia, Soviet Union, Italy, Hungary, and dozens of other countries. Angela Merkel is first woman chancellor of Germany. The Zionist entity had only one woman prime minister – Golda Meir in its 69 years of occupation of Palestine. Kim Campbell became first and only prime minister of Canada for a few months in 1993.

Why Iran need a nuclear deterrent against Israel

Israel is the only entity in the Middle East which posses nuclear weapons and has not only invaded all its neighbors during the last six decades but has also threatened several European capital cities.

Israel, in the past, had made sure that none of country in the region gain nuclear capability. In 1981, it bombed Osirak nuclear reactor under construction in Iraq – and in 2007 in Syria killing 10 North Korean scientists.

Amos Yadlin, one of the pilot who bombed Iraqi reactor compound, wrote an Op-Ed at the Jew York times (March 1, 2012) in which he gloated: ”

After the Osirak attack and the destruction of the Syrian reactor in 2007, the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear programs were never fully resumed. This could be the outcome in Iran, too, if military action is followed by tough sanctions, stricter international inspections and an embargo on the sale of nuclear components to Tehran.

In 2013, Shimon Peres, former president of Zionist entity, and the Father of Jewish Nukes clarified why Israel need nuclear and chemical WMDs. “There is a reason that pushes you to own nuclear power, for me it is a tool that leads to peace not to carry out attacks.” However, Netanyahu and his western poodles don’t want Iran to have the same tool to help Israel bring peace in the region.

Zionist entity’s foster parents (the US, UK, and Soviet Russia) have never dared to attack a foreign country with nuclear bombs or having the capability to produce a nuclear bomb.

Benjamin Netanyahu had been telling us since the 1990s that Iran is acquiring nuclear capability to wipe Israel off the map. But M. Ozdamar at the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation claimed on May 6, 2013 that Iran is not acquiring the nuclear bomb to flatten the Zionist entity – but to carry jihad against Sunni Muslim majority.

One thing is for certain; they are not developing a nuclear capability so that they can wipe Israel off the map. The real reason Iran feels it needs to have a nuclear capability is so that they can prepare themselves for the Islamic wars. There are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, the vast majority of which are Sunnis. Iran is the leader of the Shia minority, which represents around 7% of the world’s Muslims, most of whom live in Iran, Iraq and the surrounding areas. Throughout  history there has been no love lost between Sunnis and the Shia. The Sunnis, led by Saudi Arabia and other regional powers, see the Shia as heretics and are deeply suspicious of the Iranian regime exporting their brand of religious fanaticism throughout the Muslim world. That is why we do not see Pakistan, a Sunni Muslim state, helping Iran to acquire the bomb; instead, the Iranians have to cooperate with the rogue regime in North Korea in order to achieve their aims,” Ozdamar said.

And people think Netanyahu is the only serial liar among the anti-Muslim Zionist Jews!

Abdel Bari Atwan has posted an advice for North Korea, entitled, Arab Lessons for North Korea.

As an Arab and Muslim, I felt both insulted and pained when reading commentaries in the Israeli press warning the US against recklessly attacking North Korea. Pundits argued that the DPRK was not some two-bit Arab country like Syria which could be bombed at any time with impunity, but a serious adversary that possesses serious means of retaliation, involving nuclear warheads and long-range missiles,” Atwan said.

It is no coincidence that all the Arab countries that have been subjected to US-led aggression in recent years had earlier yielded to American-authored UN demands to be disarmed of ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ especially chemical munitions, and abandon any thought of acquiring a nuclear deterrent. But this compliance did not ensure their safety. They were subsequently attacked or invaded or both. Once the US was reassured that they did not possess powerful weapons with which to defend themselves and inflict serous casualties on any invading forces, the aggression and bombing would begin,” added Atwan.

I’m glad Pakistan learned the lesson from naïve Arabs and joined world’s nuclear club in 1974.
