The reasons for Saudi Arabia’s gravitation toward Israel

Iran and Saudi Arabia have experienced a great deal of tension in their relations in recent years. These tensions started with the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr (a Shia cleric who opposed the Saudi regime) and peaked when a number of Iranian Anti-Saudi protesters stormed the Saudi embassy in Tehran. Following these events, diplomatic relations between the two countries have been completely severed. Iran and Saudi Arabia are also engaged in proxy wars in Syria and Yemen. Moreover, they compete for diplomatic influence in the internal policies of Lebanon and Iraq. All of these issues have led Saudi Arabia to think about creating a regional coalition against Iran. Riyadh tried to persuade Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to form such a coalition, but failed for various reasons.

"The US – Iran military stand-off: assessing Iran’s defensive capability"

In September 2018, National Security Advisor John R. Bolton reportedly called on the ministry of defense to formulate an attack on Iran in response to a mortar attack on the American embassy in Basra, Iraq. Would the US actually be able to launch a direct attack on Iran?

The White House has put forward three options for creating regime change in Iran:

– economic war

– military war

– diplomatic war

Donald Trump is not interested in a military conflict and definitely not looking for a full-scale war. Instead, he will try to pursue economic war.

"Washington and Tehran turn to hidden diplomacy"

Dr Mani Mehrabi in United World International

https://uwidata.com/1468-washington-and-tehran-turn-to-hidden-diplomacy

After Donald Trump took office, Obama and Rouhani’s previous diplomatic efforts and rapprochement were apparently ignored, and the two countries cut off their relations, seemingly reluctant to improve the situation… but perhaps there is more to the situation than meets the eye. Frequent tweets between American and Iranian officials, especially Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo and Mohammad Javad Zarif, covert negotiations of Mohammad Javad Zarif and Kerry and the approval of the proposed FATF (Financial Action Task Force) bills in the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran (which ran counter to Iran’s conservative faction), indicate something other than what the politicians of the two countries are saying publicly.

 

"Europe’s dishonesty toward Iran and crypto-alignment with the U.S"

Dr Mani Mehrabi in United World International

On November 5, 2018, the United States Government reinstated all Iranian oil and bank sanctions in what is being described as one of the toughest sanctions regimes in history.

The main purpose of the sanctions is to reduce the sale of Iranian oil and, more importantly, to disrupt Iran’s foreign exchange earnings from crude oil sales. The most important thing targeted in the sanctions plan is the SWIFT system.

SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) is a nongovernmental organization which provides a standard system for sending and receiving currency between banks, having replaced the traditional method of money transfers in the seventies. SWIFT provides banking services through computer centers around the world. US sanctions now require SWIFT to refrain from communicating with Iranian banks, like other institutions.

"The ICJ verdict: a confirmation of the United States’ illegal foreign policy actions"

After the unilateral withdrawal of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the country reopened its unilateral sanctions against Iran, sanctions that directly target Iran’s oil income. Iranian politicians, after searching for ways to work around these sanctions and consulting with EU and UN Security Council member states for ways to continue the JCPOA without the United States, eventually found that agreements between Iran and the United States were the most serious and practical strategy for preventing the sanctions.

"How can we trust the FATF again? A new political headache for Iran"

Dr Mani Mehrabi in United World International

https://uwidata.com/1147-how-can-we-trust-the-fatf-again-a-new-political-headache-for-iran

It was a tense day in the Iranian parliament, with government opposition even calling it a “black day”. This day marks the anniversary of the day nuclear deal with the 5+1 Group (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) was ratified, a day that divided Iranian domestic politics into two sides: supporters and opponents of engagement with the United States.

The story goes as follows: The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which is responsible for reviewing anti-money laundering laws in markets around the world, provides the results of its reviews to member countries every four months, so that they can measure the risk of investing in the reviewed country’s market. One of the most important reasons for Iran’s failure to reach the international markets after the nuclear agreement with the 5+1 Group (JCPoA) was this FATF report. The report bases its review on a country’s financial connections to terrorist organizations and their ability to prevent money laundering via financial transparency. Following these rubrics, the organization blacklisted Iran, and suggested that other countries refuse to carry out any financial transactions with them. The FATF then provided Iran with a specific executive plan, and told the country implement this plan in order to be removed from the blacklist. The FATF included forty-one separate proposals.

Four of the forty-one FATF proposals require that Iran adopt the adjustment as a national law. Iran’s ascension to the “Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime” or Palermo, the “International Terrorist Financing Convention” or CFT, the “Amendments to the Anti-Terrorism Financing Act” and the Amendments to the “Anti-Money Laundering Law”, were voted for approval in the Iranian parliament as quadruple bills. The latest and most controversial bill, the CFT, which relates to the fight against the financing of terrorist organizations, was approved last week.

"The United States is behind the terrorist attack in Ahvaz"

Dr Mani Mehrabi in United World International

https://uwidata.com/549-the-united-states-is-behind-the-terrorist-attack-in-ahvaz

On Saturday, September 22, a terrorist attack took place in Ahwaz, Iran, where 25-29 people were killed.Ahwaz is the capital of Khuzestan province in Iran, which has the largest number of Arabic speakers in Iran, and therefore the center of the conspiracy of Arab countries against Iran. During the war between Iran and Iraq  the main target of Saddam Hussein’s attack was the Khuzestan province, and in general it could be described as the most important region of Iran facing the Arab countries.

A coalition group of “Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement in Ahwaz”, which includes several Arab-Iranian dissident groups,and ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack shortly after it was carried out.Based on available evidence, this terror was not carried out the by the ISIS, and the Islamic State group simply falsely claimed responsibility for it.

The most important group in the Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement in Ahwaz’ coalition is the “Arabic Liberation Movement of Alahwaz”which has carried out various terrorist operations in Khuzestan province over the past 13 years, including more than 20 bombings.The political activities of the group usually take place in Kuwait and Tunisia, the two countries informally supporting Alahwaz.Many members of the group live in the UK, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for the third time in the last 9 months, met during a summit, this time hosted by Hassan Rouhani on September 7 in Tehran.

"Iran Deal: Why EU is Likely to Give in and Play by Trump's Rules"

Interview with Sputniknews

https://sputniknews.com/europe/201805211064656644-eu-trump-iran

Despite the fact that European leaders strongly oppose Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, the bloc has a substantial surplus in trade with the US, which remains the largest destination for the EU's exports of goods and services.

EU businesses are bending to Washington's will regardless of vocal displeasure from Brussels and major European capitals' over the resumption of anti-Iran sanctions by Donald Trump.

"Analyst Outlines Three Scenarios of EU's Actions After US Iran Deal Exit"

Interview with Sputniknews

https://sputniknews.com/analysis/201805131064411508-iran-nuclear-deal-analysts

By pulling out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, President Donald Trump has all but undone the results of more than a decade-long international effort to bring about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Interviewed by Sputnik, several Iranian and Russian political analysts spoke about the impact Trump’s decision may have and how it could reflect on Tehran’s nuclear cooperation with Russia.

Iranian political scientist Mani Mehrabi said that the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal was anticipated and is another US attempt to extract concessions from Tehran.
