Israel accuses Iran of harboring ‘secret atomic warehouse’

editor 3 October 2018

By Jennifer Peltz and Angela Charlton | AP.. UNITED NATIONS — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran on Thursday (September 27, 2018) of keeping a “secret atomic warehouse” just outside its capital, despite the 2015 deal with world powers that was meant to keep it from obtaining nuclear weapons. Hours later, Iran dismissed the allegation.

Holding up a poster-board map of an area near Tehran as he spoke at the U.N. General Assembly, Netanyahu told world leaders that Iranian officials have been keeping up to 300 tons of nuclear equipment and material in a walled, unremarkable-looking property near a rug-cleaning operation. (more…)

Former envoy: Israel-Russia crisis artificial, driven by anti-Semitism

editor 28 September 2018

By Ariel Kahana.. As tensions rise over shooting down of Russian plane in Syria, researcher Zvi Magen says two clear factions have emerged in Russia: One is pleased that Israel is doing the work for Russia and acting against Iran, while the other one sees Iran as an ally. The crisis between Israel and Russia resulting from a Russian military aircraft being shot down over Syria last week is “calculated and artificial, unrelated to reality or the facts, because the Russians want payment,” former Israeli Ambassador to Russia Zvi Magen told Israel Hayom in an interview.

editor 26 September 2018

By TheTower.org Staff.. “For almost 40 years, the Iranian regime has existed outside the community of law-abiding nations,” United State Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said at the opening of this week’s UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East (September 20, 2018). “It is difficult to name a conflict in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints on it.” [Photo top right: United States Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, visits the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, in Jerusalem’s Old City, during her visit to Israel, on June 7, 2017.

The Iran Opportunity and European Infamy

editor 18 August 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. A senior Iranian official has accused Israel of stealing its clouds. Yes, you read that right. Clouds as in the sky. Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization, has said: “Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain. On top of that, we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft.” (more…)

A glimpse of Europe’s true face

editor 17 August 2018

By Caroline Glick.. Due to an unusual conflation of events, over the past two weeks we’ve caught a rare glimpse of the face of European foreign policy. We shouldn’t let it pass unremarked.

Last Friday (July 6, 2018), the European Union’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini presided over a curious summit in Vienna. In the same hall where she and her colleagues concluded the nuclear deal with Iran three years ago, Mogherini and her comrades tried to concoct ways to save the deal by undermining American power and defying its decision to abandon the deal.

Why Iran Supports Palestinian Terror Groups

editor 25 July 2018

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. The Iranian general did not offer to build the Palestinians a hospital or a school. Nor did he offer to provide financial aid to create projects that would give jobs to unemployed Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. His message to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip: Iran will give you as much money and weapons as you need as long as you are committed to the jihad (holy war) against Israel and the “big Satan,” the US. [Photo top right: Friends and family attend the funeral of IDF Sgt Aviv Levi of the IDF’s Givati Brigade, who was killed by Palestinian sniper fireon the Gaza border on July 20,

Iran’s Two-Front Strategy

editor 17 July 2018

By Tony Badran.. With simmering conflicts on the Golan and in Gaza, Tehran looks to strip Israel of its strategic advantages. Israel is about to face two active fronts on its borders: one in Gaza, and the other in the Golan Heights. As factions in Gaza fired rockets at Israel, an offensive of the alliance backing the Assad regime was underway in southern Syria, which is likely to reach the Golan soon. While this might appear as random coincidence, it’s more by design: The escalating attacks from Gaza should be seen as part of a coordinated Iranian strategy.

Mullahs want to fly 300 million euros in cash from Germany to Iran

editor 16 July 2018

By Nikolaus Blome and Antje Schippmann.. This plan will probably lead to serious diplomatic difficulties between Germany, the US, and Israel.

According to information available to BILD, the Iranian regime intends to fly 300 million euros in cash from Germany to Iran. The background is that, in the coming months, strict US sanctions against the Iranian financial sector will come into effect. The mullahs are worried that they will run out of cash. Iran’s justification for their plan says that they need the money “to pass it on to Iranian individuals who, when travelling abroad, are dependent on euros in cash due to their lack of access to accepted credit cards”.
