New sanctions: US’s nefarious design to install Washington friendly govt in Tehran

1396/5/1 | 19:49
  Once again US has targeted Iran for new sanctions and the Iranian reaction was swift, with President Rouhani saying on Wednesday that his country would “respond appropriately” to US moves.     Instead of building upon the 2015 nuclear agreement — which Mr Trump once termed “the worst deal ever” — and addressing its concerns with Iran at the negotiating table, it appears that the current American administration is trying very hard to look for ‘trouble’ with Iran.      Unable to find fault with ...

As 75 percent of Americans fear ‘Major war’ under Trump

1396/4/31 | 19:49
A vast majority of Americans are concerned about the United States’ potential involvement in a new major war—but most think military action is the wrong way to go about approaching international threats, according to an NBC poll released Tuesday. The survey finds that more than three-quarters of citizens are worried about a significant military conflict touching off—up 10 points from 66 percent in February. Much of the anxiety appears to stem from reports of North Korea’s potential nuclear capabilities; 41 percent believe that Kim Jong ...

  Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of Rai al-Youm newspaper, said US President Donald Trump humiliated and blackmailed the Arabs in his recent interview with CBN news channel.     In his interview with the CBN, Trump said that he traveled to Saudi Arabia and the UAE after the two Arab states accepted to pay hundreds of billions of dollars to purchase the US-made weapons and equipment, Atwan wrote on Sunday.     He also said that 10 countries are willing to host the US military base in Qatar, named al-Udeid, ...

Dump the Trump: Anti-Trump protests held across US demanding impeachement

1396/4/25 | 19:49
Protesters have rallied in the streets of cities across the United States to demand the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and at least two people have been arrested. The protests organized by RefuseFascism were held on Saturday in at least 20 locations, including Atlanta, New York City, New Jersey, Chicago, Phoenix, Washington, Boston, Portland and Los Angeles. RefuseFascism, a vocal opponent of the Trump administration, is calling for an end to the Trump-Pence administration.   The Trump/Pence Regime daily escalates its fascist ...

Trump’s son-in-law tried to get $500mn loan from Qatar

1396/4/24 | 19:49
Kushner – a real-estate developer like his father-in-law – purchased a tower at 666 Fifth Avenue in New York for $1.8 billion some years ago, but the building failed to generate enough money to cover its debts, according to The New York Times. More than a quarter of the office space in the building has remained vacant for several years, causing huge losses to Kushner Companies. In 2015, when Trump was launching his presidential campaign, Kushner and his father targeted Qatari billionaire Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Thani (HBJ) as a potential ...

Options Prepared for Trump to Attack North Korea

1396/4/9 | 19:49
The possibility of the US unilaterally attacking North Korea was a major concern just a couple of months prior, and while it’s dropped out of the headlines, the risk of a US attack hasn’t really gone anywhere, with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying that a new set of options have been created for President Trump to respond to North Korea.   And when they say options, what they really mean are plans for military attacks, as McMaster confirmed every single one of the options prepared includes the US attacking North Korea ...

Trump ends White House Ramadan dinners, breaking 20-yr "tradition"

1396/4/6 | 19:49
Donald Trump has declined to host a dinner to mark the end of Ramadan, ending a tradition that has been observed at the White House for more than 20 years. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also declined to host a reception to mark the holiday. The White House’s tradition of holding an annual iftar dinner for Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, began under the Clinton administration, which first hosted the event in 1996. However, the first such dinner dates all the way back to 1805, when Thomas Jefferson invited an ambassador from ...

Trump Will Move to Quickly Deliver Smart Bombs to Saudi Arabia

1396/3/26 | 19:49
Saudi Arabia is heavily bombing Yemen, more or less constantly, and the bombs they drop don’t exactly grow on trees. The bombs, rather, come from US arms makers, and President Trump is looking to get more of them in Saudi hands as soon as possible.     The $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis is just part of the unprecedented influx of weaponry the Saudis are about to see from the United States, and today’s failed Senate vote was really the last obstacle trying to block the US from delivering more munitions to the Saudis ...

Trump is fostering chaos in the Middle East

1396/3/13 | 19:49
In his first “historical speech to the Islamic world” US President Donald Trump spoke about the “battle between good and evil”, noting that from Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, “Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region”. Chaos is indeed a major feature of the present-day Middle East. According to data provided by the US State Department, “incidents of terrorism” increased by 6,500 per cent since George W. Bush started the “War on Terror” in ...

Americans ask: Why is Saudi monarchy our friend, but not democratic Iran?

1396/3/3 | 19:49
The Los Angeles Times’ readership has questioned Washington’s claims of supporting democracy and social freedoms worldwide, asking why the US opts for amity and economic reciprocity with Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy, but antagonizes democratic Iran. The reactions were published in the paper on Tuesday under the title, “Iran just held an election. So why is the theocratic monarchy Saudi Arabia our friend?” The readers asked the reason why US President Donald Trump befriended a regime, which was defiant of what the US upholds ...

The end of Trump

1396/3/1 | 19:49
  The question is no longer whether there are grounds to impeach Donald Trump. It is when enough Republicans will put their loyalty to America ahead of their loyalty to their party.     Trump’s statements last week about his firing of former FBI director James Comey provide ample evidence that Trump is engaged in an obstruction of justice – a major charge in impeachment proceedings brought against Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton. It’s worth recalling that the illegality underlying Nixon’s impeachment was a burglary ...

Iranian FM responds to Trump's anti-Tehran remarks

1396/3/1 | 19:49
  Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says US President Donald Trump's recent anti-Tehran remarks were aimed at "milking" Saudi Arabia. "Iran -- fresh from real elections -- attacked by @POTUS in that bastion of democracy & moderation. Foreign Policy or simply milking KSA of $480B?" Zarif tweeted on Sunday. Zarif was responding to remarks made by Trump during his visit to Saudi Arabia, in which the US president called on all nations to work towards isolating Iran. He further accused Tehran of stoking the fires of sectarian ...

No iota of Shame: Saudia disgraces Trump by inviting a wanted President for war crimes

1396/2/30 | 19:49
  Saudi Arabia has invited Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted for alleged war crimes, to a summit with US President Donald Trump and Arab and Muslim leaders.     The US leader is set to address the summit on his “hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam”.In 2009 and 2010, the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants against Bashir for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity related to the conflict in Darfur, which has claimed at least 300,000 lives.     He denies the charges, ...

Trump to Saudia: A new hope for ISIS

1396/2/26 | 19:49
    So, finally, the most unpredictable US president goes to the world’s most volatile region when it is suffering its worst catastrophe in living memory. But already it seems Trump has set himself an agenda that contradicts with itself as he prepares for his tour of Saudi Arabia and Israel.   So far everybody from the Levant to the Gulf had been holding their breaths. Saudi had even begun a soft rapprochement with Iran. But then the US state and defence secretaries, as if only to undo the Obama administration’s thaw with ...

Obama officials, led by Kerry, team up to defend Iran deal from Trump

1396/2/26 | 19:49
Former US Secretary of State John Kerry has teamed up with national security experts from the administration of former President Barack Obama to defend the Iran nuclear deal. Kerry and the Obama-era officials have thrown their weight behind a newly formed organization called “Diplomacy Works,” which aims to keep incumbent President Donald Trump from harming the landmark deal that was achieved between Iran and six world powers in 2015, The Independent reported. In its mission statement, the group hails the agreement, known as Joint Comprehensive ...

Another slap in Trump's face: Pyongyang test-launched another ballistic missile

1396/2/24 | 19:49

Joke to the Muslims: Trump a servant of Allah, according to Saudi cleric

1396/2/17 | 19:49
A Saudi cleric has found himself in hot water after he publicly made a prayer for 'servant of Allah' Donald Trump to advance the interests of Muslims.   Saad bin Ghoniem said on Friday that he hoped God would take Trump under his wing and steer him in the right direction towards ending injustice against Muslims, prompting an online backlash.   "O Allah, Trump is one of your servants, you control him and his fate.

Trump, Putin discuss Syria, North Korea, Middle East in phone call

1396/2/13 | 19:49
US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed working together to end the violence in Syria on Tuesday in their first phone call since US air strikes in Syria strained US-Russian relations.

1396/2/4 | 19:49
  Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University.   Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.     Speaking at the conference at Yale’s School of Medicine on Thursday, one of the mental health professionals, Dr John Gartner, ...

Israel behind US-North Korea standoff

1396/2/2 | 19:49
  US Vice-president Mike Pence with impeccable record of an ardent support for the Zionist entity, threatened North Korea with war saying: “The United States of America will always seek peace (??) but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready.”     The Zionist entity put nuclear North Korea on its hit list during Dubya Bush presidency.

Riyadh Offers Financial Aid to Trump for Continued Strikes on Syria

1396/1/27 | 19:49

When US and Israel gassed civilians

1396/1/27 | 19:49
  As Trump administration and Zionist regime continue to act outraged over Syrian army and Nazi army gassing their own innocent people – despite the fact that no evidence exists to support their ridiculous claims.     They’re ignoring the fact that both US administration and the Zionist regime had used chemical weapons on their own citizens as well as on civilians in foreign lands – crimes which have been documented.     CIA declassified 1980s documents reveal that during the waning days of Iraq’s ...

1396/1/23 | 19:49
  US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the Trump administration prefers using a political process for changing the Syrian government but sees no further role for President Bashar al-Assad. “In terms of the future of Bashar al-Assad, it is important to us that we undertake a political process that leads to the final conclusion of how Syria will be governed,” he said.

  As expected Donald Trump has used the recent Syrian poison-gas false flag to begin American attack on Syria by firing 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at al-Shayrat airbase in Homs province.     As expected the Jewish-media’s Russian anti-missile batteries installed to counter the USraeli missiles or jetfighters didn’t block the American Tomahawk cruise missiles.

Trump and the al-Saud: An inside story

1396/1/3 | 19:49
    The Saudis have done all the right thing so far to place themselves on the right side of the unpredictable Trump White House. They have billions on the ready to help feed the new administration’s expected expansionary fiscal policy inside the US.    They have made known how they believe “his Excellency” (Trump) is a true friend of the Muslims. Most importantly, they have understood and praised the so called Muslim ban, and even mentioned how their own little wall on the Iraqi border works so well. And, of course, ...

Trump’s new blunder: Giving CIA the license to kill

1395/12/28 | 19:49
  Under the new rules of the game, the CIA will be authorised to go it alone. Meaning no approval or oversight required. As unfortunate as this development is, it appears that many within Washington have a short memory. Pakistanis do not.     The problem is not that the US drone programme is illegal. Gen Musharraf long ago publicly admitted his consent to it.      Meanwhile, according to Bob Woodward, then President Zardari infamously told the CIA that collateral damage didn’t bother him, in reference to the ...

Saudia- US honeymoon: A sign of continued spilling of Muslim’s blood

1395/12/26 | 19:49
    Saudi Arabia hailed a “historical turning point” in US-Saudi relations after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman highlighted the two leaders' shared view that Iran posed a regional security threat.     The meeting on Tuesday appeared to signal a meeting of the minds on many issues between Trump and Prince Mohammed, in a marked difference from Riyadh's often fraught relationship with the Obama administration, especially in the wake of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.     Saudi ...

Can Trump List Iran’s IRGC as terrorists?

1395/12/9 | 19:49
  A proposal the Trump administration is considering to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a terrorist organisation has stalled over warnings from defence and intelligence officials that the move could backfire, according to officials familiar with the matter.     “If you do that, there is no way to escalate, and you would foreclose any possibility of talking to the Iranians about anything,” one of the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.     Momentum behind a possible ...

Sleeping with devil: An Arab-Israel alliance against Iran

1395/12/4 | 19:49
     With a new leader in the White House bent on disrupting the status quo, could it also be time for a fresh approach to Middle East peace?     The United States this week encouraged a "regional" solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, backing a proposal for the Jewish state to unite with Arab powers against Iran, their common foe.     The first meeting at the White House between President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took place on Wednesday, with the proceedings dominated ...

Trump has not killed the two-state solution; it died long ago

1395/11/30 | 19:49
  The new US administration led by Donald Trump announced that ending the Israel-Palestine conflict through a two-state solution is no longer a strategic choice. One of Trump’s aides told reporters, “A two-state solution that doesn’t bring peace is not a goal that anybody wants to achieve.”     Trump has made a dramatic shift from a position held by the US for decades. His immediate predecessor, President Barack Obama, saw two states as the only way out for the conflict.      For the Israelis, though, pushing ...

The Trump Administration’s Iran Obsession and Yemen

1395/11/27 | 19:49
  As we have seen over the last few weeks, this Iran obsession leads Trump and his officials to exaggerate threats from Iran, accuse Iran of doing things they aren’t doing, and blame them for the actions of groups they don’t control. Inflating the threat from Iran is nothing new, as Giraldi notes, but the early and intense fixation on Iran as the source of all the region’s problems shows how eager the Trump administration is to exaggerate Iranian capabilities and influence. This isn’t a sober response to real Iranian behavior, ...

Jihadist groups hail Trump’s travel ban as a victory

1395/11/14 | 19:49
  Jihadist groups on Sunday celebrated the Trump administration’s ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, saying the new policy validates their claim that the United States is at war with Islam.     Comments posted to pro-Islamic State social media accounts predicted that President Trump’s executive order would persuade American Muslims to side with the extremists. One posting hailed the U.S. president as “the best caller to Islam,” while others predicted that Trump would soon launch a new war in the Middle ...

1395/11/5 | 19:49
  The Jerusalem municipality approved building permits for more than 560 housing units in three East Jerusalem settlements; two days after President Donald Trump took office in the United States.     Chairman of Jerusalem city hall’s Planning and Building committee Meir Turgeman told Israel Radio that the permits were held up until the end of the Barack Obama administration, which was critical of Israeli settlement activity.

Obama’s advice: Would Trump cut nuclear deal with Iran under Israel pressure?

1395/10/30 | 19:49
US President Barack Obama a day ago marked the first anniversary of the nuclear deal with Iran by emphasizing its "significant and concrete results" and warning the incoming Trump administration against undoing a pact supported by the world´s major powers.     On Iran— and the nuclear deal he has long called the worst diplomatic agreement brokered in modern history– Trump reiterated his concerns with the deal. Beyond that, he declined to comment.      While Trump said during his campaign that he would rip up the ...

1395/10/30 | 19:49
  Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Monday he was positive about the way the incoming US administration wanted to restore American influence in the world, contain Iran and fight Islamic State.   Jubeir said the interests of the world’s largest oil exporter were aligned with those of the United States, be it geopolitically – in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran – or on energy and financial issues.       When asked specifically about Riyadh’s relationship with its Shia regional rival Iran and whether ...

Pro-Zionist gestures: Why Trump could be dangerous for Iran and Palestine?

1395/10/16 | 19:49
