U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, called on six world powers negotiating with the Iranian regime to curb its nuclear program, to have the courage to walk away from the negotiations and work with the U.S. on implementing even tougher sanctions, if the Iranian regime continues to stall and balk on its enrichment program.
Chairman Ros-Lehtinen said: “As the P5+1 representatives meet today in Vienna to discuss the looming deadline for the Iran nuclear negotiations, it is imperative that they recognize that a Republican controlled Congress will not accept a weak deal that threatens U.S. national security interests."
U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released the following statement on reports that President Obama sent a secret letter to the Iranian regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei:
"It is outrageous that, while the cries of moderate Syrian forces for greater U.S. assistance fall on deaf ears in the White House, President Obama is apparently urging Ayatollah Khamenei to join the fight against ISIS. This is the same Iranian regime that has been complicit in the rise of ISIS by pushing a violent sectarian agenda throughout the Middle East -- backing radical Shia militias and politicians in Iraq, doing everything in its power to aid the killing machine of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, arming Hamas terrorists with advanced rockets in Gaza, and orchestrating Hezbollah's dispatch of thousands of fighters from Lebanon into Syria.
The Iranian regime is still failing to provide answers to questions related to its military dimension of its nuclear activities, the UN atomic watchdog said Friday.
The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a new quarterly report on Friday: "Iran has not provided any explanations" on two issues that Tehran had undertaken to clarify by August 25.
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio and Mark Kirk say “America must do more to combat Tehran’s persecution of its citizens” while addressing the Iranian regime’s nuclear program and support for terrorism.
Citing the execution of the 26-year-old female prisoner Reyhaneh Jabbari the Senators said in their joint article published in Daily Beast: “we need to do much more to help the Iranian people bring about the day when young women like Reyhaneh Jabbari are able to live their lives to their full potential.”
The repressive guards at a prison in Iran tortured a prisoner by pouring boiling water on him causing severe burns and preventing him from receiving treatment.
The torturing of Mr. Gholamreza Shahbazi occurred last Saturday (November 1, 2014) at Gohardasht Prison in the city of Karaj as prisoners were attacked on the order of the prison authorities.
