Iran deal

But Why is the USA Committing Genocide in Yemen?

To placate the Saudis during the negotiation of the Iran deal, of course. Now check out this insane recitation/rationalization of the facts by Obama-man Robert Malley: "Why the U.S. got entangled in this war—and why a president so determined to keep the country out of another Mideast military mess nonetheless got caught in this one—makes for a painful a story. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia came to the U.S. with a request for support in a campaign it vowed to conduct regardless. After that, and although events took place a mere four years ago, memories blur. In our conversations, many former...

Forward Opinion Editor Sargon: Omar Was Right About AIPAC Money, But Is Still Wrong

Batya Ungar-Sargon writes: "AIPAC does have a lot of financial muscle. It is a powerful, well-run, well-funded lobby which is worthy of attention, discussion, and criticism." "But it’s all about how you do it. ... "Not everyone has to be up on all the details of different Jewish organizations. But if you want to criticize a people who have been literally mass murdered on the basis of the ideas you may be invoking, you should be careful to stick to the facts." But all Rep. Omar did was quote a song in a flippant way on Twitter: "It's all about the Benjamins," and claim that AIPAC spends...

Iran Sanctions Aren’t Just Counterproductive, They’re an Act of War

Having unilaterally stepped out of the Iran nuclear deal in May, the Trump administration reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic earlier this week, part of another so-called “maximum pressure” campaign. The new sanctions will target Iran’s purchases of U.S. dollars, precious metals trading, industrial software, Iran’s coal industry and its automotive sector. Sanctions on Iran’s oil industry are also set to begin in November. All of the above is sure to inflict pain on Iran’s civilian population. Indeed, that is a common intended effect of sanctions: to impose suffering on civilians...

What If Trump Leaves the Iran Deal?

Jacob Heilbrunn interviews Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif. Jacob Heilbrunn: President Trump has until May 12 to make a decision on the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action). What happens if he does indeed announce that the U.S. is officially withdrawing? Mohammad Javad Zarif: Well, you made a pertinent point: officially withdrawing. Because the United States, under President Trump, has really not been a part of the JCPOA, has violated almost every U.S. commitment under the JCPOA, so we’ve had almost sixteen months of a trial period for official withdrawal. If the...
