Insider news & Analysis in Iran

Ever since the US strike on Syria last week, in response to the Syrian Government’s chemical attack on his own people, pundits and politicians have speculated which country might be next on the US agenda.

The Syrian Regime is not the only dictatorship to consistently attack their civilians, and two likely targets are Iran and North Korea.

The Iranian government does not tolerate any dissent, especially from its own citizens. Opposition seems to be viewed as condemnation of government policies and often extends to their elections, where they’d like to show popular support at the polls, even if there is no such support for the regime.

INU - Earlier this week, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant released a propaganda video targeting the Islamic Republic of Iran and using the Farsi language to call upon local Sunni militants to rise up against the similarly militant Shiite theocracy. Soon thereafter, Mohsen Rezaei, the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council issued a reply with which he sought to return to threat and convey the message that Iran would hunt down the ISIL militants in response to any attack.


On Wednesday, while the Iranian people were celebrating the Persian New Year, or Nowruz, United States President Trump sent his greetings. 

During his meeting with the Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, on March 20, Donald Trump heavily criticised the Iranian Deal according to The Washington Post.

The Iraqi delegation was welcomed into the White House at approximately 4 pm EST; where Abadi posed for official photos in the White House driveway and the Oval Office before the bilateral meeting started.

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) is, at best, a lobby for the Iranian Regime in the USA and, at worst, an unregistered foreign entity working on behalf of the Iranian Regime, according to a former Pentagon official.

Michael Rubin, a  resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), wrote an op-ed for Commentary Magazine in which he outlined the dangers of allowing the NIAC to influence American policy towards Iran.
