BATTLEFORWORLD – April 30, 2018: And so the shadow ones in Israel and abroad have become desperate. And they are trying to start a new war in the Middle East involving Iran, and and all this is in the interest of Israel because they want to dominate the Middle East region with Arab vassal states.
The introduction argument to annul the Iran nuclear agreement is be crafted for presentation to the public and this is being done because Israel is just not happy with Iran’s nuclear agreement. And as war in Syria diminishes with flare ups here and there, the new target of battle for the Zionists will be Iran. This battle is moving ahead to try and turn the Islamic world against Russia. All this is in the interest of Israel for them to dominate the Middle East. And President Trump is going to be manipulated to annul the Iran nuclear agreement. Just as how the United States annul the ABM Treaty. Just as how the United States renege on their verbal promise to Russia about expanding eastward. And the latest prey that will most likely fall for the same old trick will be North Korea.

Israel ready to bomb Iran if necessary
WASHINGTONTIMES – April 30, 2018: Israeli defense officials have told their American and Russian counterparts that if Iranian-backed forces attack Israel from inside Syria, Jerusalem will not hold back from retaliating with direct strikes against Tehran or other targets in Iran.
The officials delivered the message ahead of a national security statement expected Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to Iranian threats to hit Israel after recent strikes on Tehran-backed assets in Syria, according to a report by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.
The developments come amid growing concern in Washington that Israel and Iran are on the verge of a clash that could spill dangerously beyond Syria, where there were reports Monday that missile strikes had killed more than two-dozen mostly Iranian forces supporting the Syrian government of Bashar Assad.
While no outside power claimed responsibility for the strikes, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said they were likely carried out by Israel. “Given the nature of the target, it is likely to have been an Israeli strike,” Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the Britain-based monitoring organization, told Agence France-Presse.
‘Either a Liar or an Idiot’: Netanyahu’s Iran Claims Insult Integrity of IAEA
SPUTNIKNEWS – April 30, 2018: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Monday that his country has a trove of secret documents detailing Iran’s continued expansion of the range of its nuclear-capable missiles – a display insulting to the international inspectors who have consistently found no evidence of such work, guests told Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear.
Israeli intelligence agencies have accrued 55,000 pages of documents and other materials detailing an alleged military nuclear program called “Project Amad,” according to Netanyahu, who noted that Israel had shared its intelligence with Washington.
The announcement comes ahead of the May 12 deadline for US President Donald Trump to extend his country’s deal with Iran concerning the latter’s nuclear program, which he is expected not to do. It also comes hot of the heels of former CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s first foreign visit since becoming secretary of state over the weekend. Pompeo visited both Israel and Saudi Arabia — key regional foes of the Islamic Republic.
Israel is stomping on Iran – and it could bring one of the worst wars the Middle East has ever seen
BUSINESSINSIDER – April 30, 2018: The article highlights that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday said Israeli intelligence had obtained a trove of “secret” documents outlining a clandestine Iranian nuclear program, and he accused Tehran of cheating on the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. And experts are saying that the strike in Syria on Sunday (April 29) that is believed to have killed Iranians was most likely carried out by Israel in a marked escalation of military conflict. And that Israel is trying to punish Iran by walking all over Syria as the US expresses support for Jerusalem. The result of this by Israel, experts say, could be a massive war breaking out across a region already ravaged by conflict.
SPUTNIKNEWS – April 29, 2018: Commenting on Tehran’s warning that it will withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty if Washington scraps the Iran nuclear deal, US political analyst Alexander Azadegan told Sputnik that the Islamic Republic should tread carefully on the issue.
Alexander Azadegan, professor of geopolitics from the University of California and chief editor of the website ImperiaNews, said that Europe is not ready for Tehran’s possible withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and does not want to lose the advantages that the nuclear deal brought to European countries which are also against Iran’s pullout of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Azadegan recalled that US attacks on Iran began during the Obama presidency, when the White House extended the Iranian oil embargo.
“The Islamic Republic’s current response to all American claims is the result of activities by those politicians, who like [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu will now begin demonizing Iran and say that Tehran will produce an atomic bomb in the near future,” Azadegan said.
“Most likely, it will happen, which is why Iran should take an offensive, yet balanced, position. The US President does not pay attention to European allies and acts on orders from the Israeli lobby in Washington. Europe wants political and economic stability in Iran rather than a regime change, in order to invest in the Islamic Republic on a long-term basis. But Trump does not want this and relies on sanctions, a policy that that cannot last forever,” Azadegan underscored.
“This is wrong. The deal clearly states that missiles cannot have nuclear charges and Iran complies with this requirement. Iran strictly adheres to the JCPOA, showing maximum goodwill in the deal’s implementation. Currently, more liberals and reformers in Iran are starting to understand the price of American false promises and say that the US is not a partner that can be trusted,” Azadegan said.
US No Longer Has Resources to Start Full-Scale War Against Iran – Professor
SPUTNIKNEWS – April 29, 2018: The world awaits President Trump’s May 12 decision on whether or not to extend the Iran nuclear deal. Speaking to Radio Sputnik, Hamed Mousavi, a professor of political science at the University of Tehran, outlined what he believes are Washington’s true motives in its attempt to pressure Iran into making new concessions.
Sputnik: Professor Mousavi, do you think Donald Trump’s criticism of the nuclear agreement has to do with the deal itself and its terms, or is there something bigger going on?
Hamed Mousavi: Actually, most of the elite in the United States, including people in the intelligence community, and even recently a person like Mike Pompeo who is the head of the CIA and is now is being considered for secretary of state, have acknowledged that the nuclear deal is in fact in the interest of the United States.
Sputnik: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has threatened Washington with severe consequences if Donald Trump scraps the accord. How do you think Tehran would respond?
Hamed Mousavi: I don’t think they have made a final decision in Iran regarding how to respond if Trump decides to leave the nuclear deal on May 12. I think there are three possible scenarios of Iran’s reaction. The first is that Iran continues the deal with the Europeans, Russia and China without the United States. The second scenario is Iran leaving the nuclear deal.
The third scenario, which has actually become a bit more popular among some segments of Iranian society, is to leave the NPT [Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons] altogether. Because people are very upset, even right now, even without the United States leaving the nuclear deal. In the past two years, Iran has really not benefited from the economic advantages it was supposed to receive under the deal. This has largely been because of the Trump administration’s constant threatening to unravel it. The result of those threats, even without the United States leaving the deal, has been that a lot of businessmen in Europe and other countries are very concerned regarding investing in Iran. The result of that has in turn been that Iran has not received the economic benefits it was hoping to receive.
EU to Assess Netanyahu’s Statement on Iranian Nuclear Projects
SPUTNIKNEWS – May 1, 2018: EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said Monday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement on Tehran’s military nuclear projects can be assessed only after a thorough analysis.
“We need to assess the details of the statement Prime Minister [of Israel, Benjamin] Netanyahu has made, look at the documents, and first and foremost get the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency]’s assessment, because the IAEA is the only impartial, international organisation that is in charge of monitoring Iran’s nuclear commitments,” Mogherini said in a statement.
“What I have seen from the first reports is that Prime Minister Netanyahu has not put into question Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] commitments, meaning post-2015 nuclear commitments,” Mogherini added.
The Iran nuclear deal is not based on “assumptions of good faith or trust” — it is based on specific commitments, mechanisms of verification and strict fact checking, the EU foreign policy chief stressed.
Iran Has Failed to Hide Nuclear Weapons Program, White House Claims
SPUTNIKNEWS – April 30, 2018: The United States believes Israel’s recent findings confirm that Tehran has been concealing its nuclear weapons program, the White House said in a statement.
On Monday, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a televised speech said that Israel uncovered information proving Iran violated its commitment to maintaining a peaceful nuclear program.
“On Israel’s announcement related to Iranian nuclear weapons development… These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people,” the White House said in a Twitter post.
