Mullahs's Terrorism

Iran Focus - The Iran-backed Houthis are quickly losing power in Yemen, as infighting between them and fellow rebel group the General People’s Congress (GPC) grows, and it is likely that they will take the Iranian Regime down with them.

This break up is not a sudden thing but was widely expected for a long time. Although the groups originally had shared interests, they no longer do, making an alliance fairly pointless.

The Houthis, who used the GPC in an attempt to gain some political legitimacy, are no more than an Iranian proxy and express far greater loyalty to the mullahs who kept them going for this three-year war than the Yemeni people.

While the Houthis wanted Yemen to essentially come under the Iranian Regime’s control, the GPC righty opposed this attack on Yemen’s sovereignty.

While some have suggested that it will be difficult to see what group, the Yemeni people will support, most Yemenis consider themselves to be Arab and, as such, will not accept the Iranian Regime’s rule and will support the GPC or the internationally-recognised government over the Iran—backed Houthis.

They see that the Houthi proxies have done nothing to benefit Yemen and instead have sent them to the brink of disaster. The United Nations has even described the current the situation in Yemen as “the worst humanitarian crisis in the world”, for which the Iran-backed Houthis hold the majority of the blame.

The backlash against the Houthis and their Iranian masters has gotten even worse following the assassination of former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Houthi gunmen, working on the order of the Iranian mullahs, shot the 75-year-old as he attempted to escaped Houthi-held Sanaa and posted a video of his lifeless body on social media.

His assassination, on Monday, was two days after he broke ranks with the Houthis over a severe disagreement and tried to resume talks with the current President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

In response to the assassination, Hadi urged the people in Houthi-controlled areas to rise up against the Iran-backed militias and told them that the Yemeni army which surrounded Sanaa was prepared to support any actions against the Houthis.

A spokesman for the legitimate government said: “The act is further proof that these militias adopt an ideology of exclusion. We call upon the Yemeni people to make the assassination of Ali Abdullah Saleh a turning point in the country’s history and encourage all people to join ranks with the legitimate government and against the evil terrorists.”

Algemeiner - The landmark arrests and indictments issued in Argentina on Thursday — following a federal inquiry into the cover-up of Iran’s responsibility for the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires — offer decisive proof that it was the Tehran regime which committed the crime, the president of AMIA said on Friday.

The arrests “confirm that Iran is the main party responsible” for the bombing of the AMIA building in downtown Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994, in which 85 people died and hundreds more were wounded, AMIA president Agustin Zbar told the Argentine Jewish newspaper Iton Gadol. Iran has always dismissed the charge of responsibility, despite the issuing of “Red Notices” for six Iranian and Hezbollah operatives wanted in connection with the bombing by Interpol, the global law enforcement agency.

In the first move of a possible treason trial that carries a maximum sentence of 25 years imprisonment, Argentine federal judge Claudio Bonadio on Thursday requested the country’s Senate to strip former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of her immunity from prosecution.

Former Foreign Minister Hector Timerman is also under house arrest, while several other Kirchner lieutenants have been detained by police or prevented by the authorities from leaving the country.

Bonadio’s inquiry into the allegations of collusion with Iran were based on the complaint against Kirchner and her associates assembled by former federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman — who spent a decade investigating the AMIA bombing, before being found murdered in his Buenos Aires apartment in January 2015. At the heart of Nisman’s complaint was the claim that, in January 2011,  Timerman signed a secret pact with this Iranian counterpart pledging both countries to a so-called “truth commission” regarding the AMIA bombing. Subsequent testimonies to Bonadio’s inquiry showed that increased trade and even the exchange of nuclear technology were approved by the pact.

Noting that 23 years had passed since the AMIA bombing, Zbar said, “We have consistently traveled a long and arduous path to demonstrate, with ample evidence, the intellectual and material responsibility of citizens and officials of the Iranian state and of the terrorist group Hezbollah, in the attack against the headquarters of AMIA.”

Zbar added that he was encouraged that the Argentine authorities were also investigating local complicity in the attack, following news that Carlos Telleldin, a businessman accused of supplying the truck used in the AMIA bombing, will face a retrial nearly two decades after a previous prosecution against him collapsed. Zbar said it was his hope that the coming Telleldin hearing and “the progress of the investigation into the death of Alberto Nisman” would eventually lead to the trial of the Iranians who planned and executed the AMIA atrocity.

“AMIA from the beginning strongly opposed the pact with Iran,” Zbar stated. “The search for justice has been our priority since July 18, 1994, and we will never give up until all those guilty of that crime against humanity are convicted and imprisoned.”

On Friday, thousands of Kirchner supporters staged a rally in Buenos Aires’ famed Plaza del Mayo to protest what they depicted as government-sponsored persecution of the former president. Kirchner has repeatedly claimed that Nisman’s allegations against her and her government are a fabrication.

Iran Focus - Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman recently compared Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to Hitler, but far too many people are painting this comment are evidence of an escalating conflict between the two Middle Eastern countries, rather than as an accurate assessment of Khamenei and the Iranian Regime.

Let’s break it down.

The Iranian Regime, much like Nazi Germany, is hostile to both its neighbouring countries and the West. It is set on creating a superstate through its network of terrorist proxies- as the Nazis did to Eastern Europe before the Allied Forces united against them.

Today, Khamenei sends the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to countries like Iraq and Syria by claiming that they are important to Iranian national security and even they are practically Iranian provinces (although Syria shares no border with Iran). Then, he and his fellow mullahs brag about the fact that the whole of the Middle East will soon be under their control, as they strive for the creation of a Shiite Crescent from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean.

They use their terrorist proxies- whether Shiite or Sunni- to create havoc across the Middle East and destabilise the region so that they can then swoop in and take power during a vacuum. In just the past decade, the Regime has backed or been heavily linked to Hezbollah, the Houthis, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood, which have all started internal power struggles or outright wars in the regions.

The truth is that the Iranian Regime is led by fascists who seized power in 1979. If left to their own devices they will only do what other fascists throughout history have done; expand their control over other countries, repress the people living under them, and pose a threat to global security.

Abdulrahman Al-Rashed, the former general manager of Al Arabiya news channel, wrote an op-ed for Arab News in which he declared that the problems that Iran has caused its neighbours could be fixed but the Regime will not work towards a compromise.

He wrote: “Tehran is not looking for solutions because it has built a state based on a partisan military expansionary project that is very similar to Daesh, a colonialist state that demands obedience from others. That was Hitler’s dream. Khamenei’s project is like fascist Germany’s, with disdain for people’s lives, be it their own citizens or those from other nations.”

The Iranian Regime is not willing to change, so for the sake of global security and the freedom of the good people of Iran, regime change is the only option.

Al Arabiya - An Iranian television channel on Saturday broadcasted a video in which a child solider speaks about being sent to Syria to fight.

In the video, a reporter asks the young solider his age to which the boy replies “13,” while another gunman next to the child says that he is “the youngest child fighter.”

In the video, which has sparked debate in Iran, the child who comes from Mazandaran province in northern Iran, says he came to Syria under the influence of Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Quds Force, and that he was aware of the danger of death in the war in Abu Kamal.

“This child must be in school now and play and not on the war fronts, where adults get killed,” said one Iranian activist.

A report by Human Rights Watch called for an investigation into the recruitment of children into Syria by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, calling on the international community and the United Nations to open an investigation into the issue and to add Iran to the annual list of perpetrators of child abuse.

The report, issued in early October, said that the age of child recruits start from 14 years, and they are in an Afghan armed group exclusively of about 14,000 fighters supported by Tehran, and fighting alongside the forces of the Assad regime in the Syrian conflict.

Al Arabiya - Saudi Arabia Crown Prince called the Supreme Leader of Iran "the new Hitler of the Middle East" in an interview with the New York Times publishedon Thursday.

Mohammed bin Salman, who is also Saudi defense minister, suggested the Islamic Republic's expansion under Ayatollah Ali Khamenei needed to be confronted.

"But we learned from Europe that appeasement doesn't work. We don't want the new Hitler in Iranto repeat what happened in Europe in the Middle East," the paper quoted him as saying.

The Saudi Prince told the Times that the war in Yemen was going in its favor and that its allies controlled 85 percent of Yemen's territory.
