Insider news & Analysis in Iran

INU - On Friday, CBS News reported upon yet another close encounter between American and Iranian naval vessels in the waters of the Middle East. Previously, US Navy officials had reported that the frequency of such encounters had more than doubled in the wake of the conclusion of nuclear negotiations between Iran and six world powers in July 2015. Each reported incident had been instigated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which operates independently of the Iranian Navy.

Formulating a policy toward Iran may be one of the new US administration’s most challenging tasks, as Tehran continues to present policy difficulties, including the nuclear program, its expanding network of armed militias, and its missile program.

Engaging and appeasing Iran’s “moderates” is a persistent position being espoused in Washington. As the Iranian presidential “elections” taking place on May 18 grow closer, the idea that “friendly policies” will empower the “moderates” has been repeated by a large number of Iran experts in Washington.

INU - On Sunday and Monday, Iranian regime conducted extensive military exercises utilizing its navy vessels and weaponry. Similar exercises are conducted each year at this time, but whether they are routine or exceptional, such demonstrations generally double as outlets for anti-Western sentiment and the announcement of Iranian plans for the expansion of its own power in the region, particularly as a counterpoint to American influence.

INU - Stating that the reasons behind Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s death remain unclear, the daughter of the former Iranian President and chairman of the Expediency Discernment Council, Fatima Rafsanjani, said in an interview with Iranian ISNA news that the statements of the Health Minister and several doctors who examined her father “were inaccurate and contradictory.”

 

Israel’s defence minister, Avigdor Lieberman, is a man who speaks his mind. On February 19th, at the Munich Security Conference, he portrayed the challenges facing the Middle East as, “Iran, Iran and Iran”. 

Tensions are mounting between the United States and Iran. President Trump who has only been in office for a few weeks has already called Iran the “number one terrorist state” in the world. He also put Iran “on notice”.
