#Pakistan informed #Iran at highest levels in the past few weeks that #Tehran needs to do as much to ease tensions as other parties should. For example, easing of #US sanctions should come with Iran reducing support to proxies in #Yemen/#Syria. #Iranian officials asked #Islamabad
..to openly hold the #US responsible for current tensions in #Gulf. #Pakistan said tensions are a shared responsibility & all parties can do more to reduce hostilities. Pakistan has assumed responsibilities to secure international navigation in Northern Arabian Sea
just at the mouth of Strait of #Hormuz. #Pakistani naval vessels are patrolling the region and cooperating closely with #Oman #UAE #US and other allies. Pakistan is still reeling from the daring attack of May 11 on #Gwadar which was followed by #Fujairah next day & then #Saudi

Now a shooting war with #Iran appears to have been avoided, at least for the weekend, it's vital we pause and ask ourselves the basic questions: What's the strategy? Is there even one? How did we get into this mess? And, how do we get out of it?

Time for a #geopolitics thread!
Right, so, here's the bottom line: The US has worked itself into a position whose likely outcomes are (a) war (b) internal regime change or (c) lasting damage to U.S. global leadership. I think we're heading for the latter. But first, I want to back up and review how we got here
For about 30 years, the U.S. & Iran maintained a cold, uncomfortable peace, generally content to hurl no more than invective at each other. Even in #Iraq, where #IRGC-backed militias attacked US forces, the two found their strategic interests aligned more often than not.

Initial reports of two giant #oil tankers targeted in Sea of #Oman, several explosions reported and distress calls have been issued.
Initial unconfirmed reports suggest one of the distressed tankers is the Front Altair.
Hyundai Dubai sitting North West of Front Altair has been rumored to be involved in some capacity, unclear if helping or also targeted, she has a tug boat along side.

Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.
Obviously their families in #Iran are also safe thanks 2 their lobbying
When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
#FreeAlavi
People in #Iran used anonymous @twitter accounts to tell the world about what is happening in the streets of #Tehran in real time. This is exactly what #HeshmatAlavi was doing especially during #IranProtests in Dec 2017 until his account was suspended.

'Treasury Sanctions Iran’s Largest Petrochemical Holding Group and Vast Network of Subsidiaries and Sales Agents'
#Iran #Sanctions @USTreasury
home.treasury.gov/news/press-rel…
NCRI-US's @A_Jafarzadeh: One less money laundering tool in the hands of the ruling mullahs. Timely action by @USTreasury to deprive the #IRGC & Supreme Leader @khamenei_ir of funds to suppress #Iran's people, plunder their wealth & spread violence and terror in the region.
A key policy recommendation in the NCRI-US’s newly published book, ‘Iran’s Emissaries of Terror” stressed “Sanctions on the petrochemical industry will close one of the most critical channels used by the regime to finance its domestic and foreign malign activities.” #Iran #IRGC

1. #Houthis of #Yemen raised funds for #Hezbollah during the month of #Ramadan

It's not the first time. Yet many found the news surprising.

#Houthis' ties to #Hezbollah & #Iran are undeniable. This thread will clarify some misconceptions about this clandestine alliance.
2. First, let's begin with Houthi's recent fundraiser in #Yemen to support #Hezbollah.

Source for this? #Houthis OFFICIAL news agency.

The fundraiser started this month of Ramadan & is ongoing. Millions of Yemeni Riyals were collected for Hezbollah & Houthis' war in Yemen;
3.#Houthis used their Radio station to mobilize this multi-phase initiative to support the war. They managed to raise over 120 000 in one month. But they deemed the Hezbollah fundraiser "the most important stage of the fundraiser & a token of gratitude for #Hezbollah's help"

#THREAD : How #Iran has exploited large numbers of Shi’a #Afghan refugees escaping the impending conflicts in #Afghanistan since the early 80’s. This is how their demographic change project is going underway in #Syria.
1-#Iran is looking to remove these refugees from its lands. Despite being granted refugee camps, the Afghans are deprived of basic #rights such as Driving Licenses, SIM cards, and owning real estates. Which all will become an obstacle for Iran’s strategic goals.
2-Iran decided instead to resort to another tactic, exploiting them by taking their males & children to go to #Syria in return for a decent salary and housing in Syria as well as a Syrian #passport for them and their families in the expense of the native displaced #Sunnis.

@Youth4R @FabianLeedsNE Movements with political agenda against the Kingdom will always turn a blind eye to other regional conflicts spiraling in the area. Most notably, the conflicts in Syria/Iraq. Where warcrimes are conducted by parties who are the supporters of the #Houthi movement in Yemen conduct
@Youth4R @FabianLeedsNE Warcrimes under clear sunlight. Terrorist groups such as #Hezbollah #Fatimiyoun #Zainabiyoun #IRGC have conducted crimes against humanity ranging from dropping barrel bombs on populated centers to conscription of underage children from poor countries and exploiting their beliefs
@Youth4R @FabianLeedsNE Here is a video in Iraq where members of Kata’ib Hezbollah, an Iraq Shi’a militia displaying a horrible show of merciless to a civilian who’s only crime was being a Sunni.

Despite all the tough rhetoric, #Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, tells top political & military officials in a religious-type meeting an hour ago in #Tehran that #Iran does not want a war with #America.

Nothing surprising here. The ayatollahs long abandoned the slogan Great Satan for the #US and actively sought strong ties with #Washington under #Obama WH. In #Afghanistan & #Iraq, the #IRGC & Gen. Soleimani quietly cooperated with US military & intelligence, until recently.
In return, again under #Obama WH, the #US turned a blind eye as #Iran/#IRGC/#Hezbollah expanded influence from #Nigeria to #Malaysia, thru #Yemen/#Gulf, and hosted elements of #Taliban+#AlQaeda as guests inside Iran, but without allowing them to be operational.

I pray for the oppressed & #Flood -stricken people of #Iran, for our occupied homeland & for our country which is burning in the fire of repression, poverty & destruction.

#Ramadan is the month of solidarity among people, so that people’s hearts could get closer during common rituals & they could love one another, & so that ill will, spite and discord promoted by the #Iran mullahs would no longer have any place among people.
In #Ramadan we remember the hungry and the poor, victims of floods & earthquake who have lost their homes under the mullahs’ rule, those who sell their kidneys out of extreme poverty, the workers & unemployed who cannot not afford to feed their children.
