Iran regime willfully defying terms of nuclear deal

There has been a "historic rise" in the number of executions in Iran since Hassan Rouhani took office as the Iranian regime's President, the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC) said on Saturday.

Tehran has also ignored a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding that it avoid all new work on ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear weapons, Majid Sadeghpour, political director of the OIAC wrote on Saturday in Townhall.

Iran nuclear deal fails to make a difference

Since the conclusion of nuclear talks between Iran's regime and six world powers last summer, the Iranian regime has carried out at least five provocative ballistic missile tests in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, warned Ali Safavi of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

Each test has been followed by boastful comments from top officials, including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the ultimate authority in all matters of the Iranian regime’s foreign and domestic policy, Dr. Safavi wrote on Wednesday in the Independent Journal Review.

What has the Iran nuclear deal gotten the Iranian people and the world?

U.S. House Speaker calls for toughness as Iran deal starts to ‘unravel’

The Obama administration’s nuclear deal with the Iranian regime is "starting to unravel" and needs to be quickly supplemented with tough U.S. action, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, said on Monday.

In an op-ed for the Independent Journal Review, Ryan wrote: “When you get down to it, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that the Obama administration essentially misled the American people on the Iran deal—or at least misled itself.”

U.S. lawmakers denounce new Obama admin concession to Iran regime

NCRI - Senior United States lawmakers have condemned the Obama's administration's decision to purchase 32 metric tons of the Iranian regime's heavy water, produced from Tehran's nuclear weapons program.

The mullahs' regime on Friday announced that it had finalized a deal with U.S. companies that are buying its heavy water.

Buying heavy water from Iran is an unjustified concession by the U.S.

NCRI - Following the Obama administration’s announcement on Friday that it is buying 32 tons of heavy water, a key component in atomic-weapons development, from the Iranian regime for an estimated $8.6 million, Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the U.S. Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said:

Obama: Iran regime not following ‘spirit’ of nuclear deal

United States President Barack Obama on Friday criticized the Iranian regime's leaders for undermining the “spirit” of last year’s nuclear agreement with major world powers.

In comments following the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, Obama denied speculation that the U.S. would ease rules preventing dollars from being used in financial transactions with Iran in order to boost the regime’s engagement with the rest of the world, The Hill reported.

Key U.S. Senator angry over UN inaction on Iran regime missile tests

The United Nations Security Council’s reluctance to sanction Iran's regime over its ballistic missile program is drawing an angry response from a key member of the United States Congress, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

Reuters reported Wednesday that UN Security Council diplomats don’t think the case for sanctions is very strong because under the relevant UN resolution Iran's regime is only “called upon” to not conduct ballistic missile tests that could deliver a nuclear weapon – it is not forbidden from doing so.
