Bahrain's Interior Minister Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, condemned the Iranian regime’s interference in his country.
In a statement published by the official Bahraini news agency, he said these interventions include "making hostile political statements, smuggling of explosives and weapons and ammunition to Bahrain, and harboring fugitives from justice, and establishing Iranian camps for training terrorist groups that seek to attack innocent lives, as well as waging continues and misleading media attacks against the Kingdom of Bahrain."
NCRI – The Iranian regime has a record of “deceiving” and “cheating” on the international community over its nuclear projects, former US Senator Joseph Lieberman told a conference at the U.S. Senate on Tuesday.
Other panelists at the Senate briefing included: former deputy chief of the IAEA Dr. Olli Heinonen, former CIA director James Woolsey, former US Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control Amb. Robert Josesph, former White House communications strategist Dr. Lawrence Haas, and former Director of Policy Planning at the US State Department Amb. Mitchell Reiss.
NCRI - Terrorist militia groups with ties to the regime in Iran are carrying out atrocities in the Iraqi province of Diyala, north of Baghdad, and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi must take urgent action to curb their influence, the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) said on Thursday.
"On the day of Eid al-Fitr, a major explosion at a market in the city of Khan Bani Sa'ad in Iraq’s Diyala province of Iraq, once again left hundreds of innocent people, mostly women and children dead. We condemn this barbaric act of blind terrorism in the strongest possible terms," Struan Stevenson, President of EIFA, said in a statement.
NCRI - A Congressional briefing on the Iran nuclear deal as well the regime's human rights abuses and meddling in the region will be held at the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday, the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC) says.
The event is being organized by Iranian-American Communities from 40 states.
"In June 2015, the United States Congress passed the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, aiming to push back against a bad deal that risks compromising U.S. national security & interests. Many believe that unannounced inspection and verification of Iranian government’s activities, whatever they maybe, should be pivotal components of any deal with Iran – these features are missing in the current agreement, as announced," the group said.
Teachers’ Protest Gathering – No. 4
NCRI – Iranian teachers who held a protest gathering outside the regime’s parliament on Wednesday carried signs reading: “Hungry for how much longer?”, “Imprisoned teachers must be freed”, “Teachers rise up to end prejudice”, “Bread, Housing, Respect”, “More Education: & knowledge = less pay & less respect” and “More experience – less pay!”.
The teachers succeeded in holding the protest in Tehran and a number of cities across Iran despite the fact that the regime employed extensive repressive suppressive measures and had threatened the teachers.
NCRI - The Iranian authorities are believed to have executed an astonishing 694 people between 1 January and 15 July 2015, said Amnesty International today, in an unprecedented spike in executions in the country.
"This is equivalent to executing more than three people per day. At this shocking pace, Iran is set to surpass the total number of executions in the country recorded by Amnesty International for the whole of last year," the international human rights group said.
“Saudi and U.S. leaders agreed Wednesday to curb Iran’s military reach across the Middle East, amid fears that last week’s nuclear deal with Tehran would encourage it to pursue more aggressive regional ambitions,” The Washington Post reported on Thursday.
“Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter held talks with Saudi Arabia’s king and its defense minister in the seaside city of Jiddah, where Saudi officials have decamped for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, as he tours Middle Eastern nations that are anxious about the Iran accord.”
NCRI - The clerical regime in Iran on Wednesday hanged 10 prisoners collectively in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, west of the Iranian capital Tehran.
This shocking group execution in Gohardasht, also known as Rajai Shahr Prison, comes a week after the henchmen of the religious dictatorship raided and harassed inmates in the notorious prison.
The Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is trying in vain to make up for the retreats he was forced to make last week in the nuclear projects, by severely violating human rights in order to to salvage his hegemony and grip on power.
The most important error in the Obama administration’s approach to the nuclear threat posed by the regime in Iran is believing that the agreement reached last week between world powers and Tehran was the only alternative to war, says Ambassador Ken Blackwell, a former Cincinnati mayor and U.S. ambassador to the UN human rights commission.
Amb. Blackwell said that West could choose instead to strength the agreement with provisions for "anytime, anywhere" inspections of Iranian sites by international weapons inspectors and support Iran's democratic opposition, led by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, to bring about regime change.
Teachers’ demonstration – No. 3
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, hailed the freedom-loving and courageous teachers who staged a protest gathering in front of the parliament building on Wednesday, July 22, and praised their resolve and perseverance in the past year as they have staged several series of nationwide protests and strikes.
“The hasty rush of the suppressive forces to confront and prevent the gathering by arresting our teacher sisters and brothers betrays the feebleness of the velayat-e faqih regime, especially following its forced retreat from the anti-popular nuclear projects,” she added.
