Iran appeals to Europe to keep Nuclear Deal for economic benefits for all involved

European leaders quietly say they prefer keeping accord, not because it offered Iran an economic lifeline, but because it opened a vast range of mega-investment opportunities for European countries.



PARIS – Europe must make clear how it will react if the United States pulls out of the multinational nuclear deal with Iran and do more to encourage international banks to return to the country, a senior Iranian official said on Tuesday.

Last month, US President Donald Trump broke ranks with European allies Russia and China by refusing to re-certify Iran’s compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, reached during Barack Obama’s tenure. Continue Reading »

Trump didn’t but Israel Law Center may bring down the Iran Nuclear Deal… and Boeing

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, founder of the Tel Aviv-based Israel Law Center, found a ‘back door’ to force Tehran to pay settlement in a past terrorism case, but in the process, may kill Boeing’s multi-billion dollar deal with Iran, and also nullify Iran’s nuclear agreement with the P5+1.



When the landmark nuclear deal was signed in 2015 between the world superpowers and Iran, one of the big winners was, of course, Tehran. Billions of dollars, frozen throughout years of economic sanctions, were finally released, providing a much-needed boost to Iran’s failing economy.

Another winner was Boeing. In one of the appendices of the deal, aerospace companies, primarily Boeing and Airbus, were given special permission to start doing business with Iran. Continue Reading »

As Lame Duck Obama Causes Chaos Democrats Finally Expressing Disagreement


Some Democrat lawmakers are relieved to bid the POTUS farewell, especially after Obama’s decision to abstain from a UN Security Council veto, that passed Resolution 2334, disavowing Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, Judea & Samaria and condemning a Jewish presence there.



WASHINGTON – For years, Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill managed to keep relatively quiet their frustration with Barack Obama’s approach to the Middle East, careful to navigate his brokerage of a nuclear deal with Iran, his absence in Syria and his antagonistic relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by offering respectful criticism couched in commitments to party loyalty.
