This weekend and early next week Hassan Rouhani will be making his first visit to Europe as the president of Iran. The first time for anything is special and this has the potential to really be a historical visit. Rouhani is scheduled to meet with the leaders of France and Italy, and they can make this a new chapter for relations between Iran and Europe, and to some extent the West as a whole.

Iranian regime's assassination plots and sanction dodging has been exposed by South African Intelligence Agencies. Middle East News channel Al-Jazeera revealed to the world how Tehran is seeking to dodge trade restrictions imposed on them by the International Community in response to their horrifying human rights record, sponsorship of terrorist factions and their undying quest to attain nuclear warheads. According to leaked documents acquired from the South African intelligence the Iranian Regime is using fake company fronts and secretive unofficial channels to bypass the sanctions and acquire material for the manufacture of weapons and other industries. The document which is a 128 page “Operational Target Analysis” written by South African intelligence reveals the names, addresses, phone numbers and cover stories used by dozens of alleged Iranian operatives in South Africa. The detailed document even goes on to name gardeners and drivers at Irans embassy, and the well planned and organized network of individuals , businesses and cultural groups which it says are being used by the Iranian regime to pursue its interests and expand its influence.

Khobar Bombing

By The Washington Post

Washington, 6 Oct - Bill Clinton’s administration gathered enough evidence to send a top-secret communique accusing Iran of facilitating the deadly 1996 Khobar Towers terrorist bombing, but suppressed that information from the American public and some elements of U.S. intelligence for fear it would lead to an outcry for reprisal, according to documents and interviews.

Before Mr. Clinton left office, the intelligence pointing toward Iran’s involvement in the terror attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen and wounded hundreds was deemed both extensive and “credible,” memos show.

The Obama administration has obviously decided to go silent on human rights abuses in Iran in hopes of concentrating like a laser on arms control. It is true that it is urgently necessary to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. The last three administrations -- Clinton, Bush, and Obama -- have agreed on that if on little else.

The operating assumption for the U.S. negotiators with Iran is that if we make a big fuss about human rights abuses -- intensifying under President Hassan Rouhani -- it will impede our ability to strike a deal on nuclear weapons.

Washington, 30 Jun - There are concerns on Capitol Hill that Iran is once again pressing the Obama administration to ‘shamefully’ sacrifice Tehran’s pro-democracy opposition as a concession to the regime in the ongoing nuclear negotiations, a former member of the White House National Security Council staff has warned.

"Concessions characterize Washington’s policy in nuclear talks with Tehran. Running out of ways to concede, there are rumors the ayatollahs may ask Washington to place the main opposition that rejects clerical rule — prodemocracy organizations — on the chopping block," Prof. Raymond Tanter of the Iran Policy Committee wrote in The Hill on Monday.

Huffington Post: The Islamic Republic has exercised a tactical shift with regards to its mass strategic signaling about its military and ballistic capabilities, development of nuclear technologies, covert operations, and long-range missiles. Iranian officials have considerably altered their tone, becoming less strident with regards to sending messages to others about their nation's strategic and military capabilities.
