#Iran's regime sends missile consignment to Europe, according to VOA Farsi.

Iranian cargo ship "Shahid Kolahduz" docks in Antwerp. Documents claim the ship is transferring food products headed for Munich.
The ship was arranged to dock in Hamburg. After a change of plans, the ship heads to dock in Belgium. An unnamed source reportedly provided info on the ship's suspicious cargo to Belgian authorities in advance & they are ready for inspections prior to docking.
The result is catastrophic.
A significant number of missile launchers & "Saba" missiles hidden in food containers are found. Iranian regime officials remain silent.

Ahmad Sanaie, director of the company sending the shipment, is a member of Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

@Antiwarcom Claiming that the #MEK has no support in #Iran is false. They have support & the number of supporters in Iran increases steadily. But those people cannot express their political affiliation freely, since they live under a totalitarian regime. The author didn't consider this fact.
@Antiwarcom It is true that the #MEK started an armed resistance against the Khomeini regime, but that was after Khomeini started to suppress peaceful protests againsts his regime violently with armed munitions. Armed resistance against a tyrant is legitimate for every nation on this earth.
@Antiwarcom The author omits that the #MEK & Mr. Rajavi campaigned for an end of the #Iran-Iraq war when he came to Paris in 1982. He signed a peace treaty with the foreign minister of #Iraq, Tariq Aziz, but Khomeini continued the war for 6 more years.

@JZarif, the foreign minister of #Iran’s regime, is in the U.S. confined to a limited area in New York.
The shadow of sanctions remain over his head.
Zarif has close relations with terrorists such as Qassem Suleimani, the IRGC, Hezbollah & Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry, headed by Zarif, transfers over $100 million a year to the Hezbollah terrorist organization.
Zarif is also a member of Iran’s “Supreme National Security Council,” the body that decides on all of the regime’s foreign terrorist plots.
This makes Zarif an accomplice in all of the regime’s terrorism.

#UPDATE: After exhaustive search, I believe that the tanker likely hijacked by #Iran over the weekend was owned/chartered by KB&R Inc., a #US military defense contractor and petroleum engineering company with headquarters in #Dubai, the home port of the ship.
No company named KRB as listed in the article operates out of Dubai, but KB&R (since the name is an agglomeration of three names, the letters can be switched) has two offices in downtown Dubai.
KB&R also has a history of subcontracting tankers for the US military, which matches up with the detail that it was chartered by KB&R through an Iraqi company.

There is a buzz about the BBC restricting its correspondents based on Tehran’s orders.
Iranians have constantly taken to social media to say they are boycotting the BBC Persian network (@bbcpersian) for its #FakeNews.
Iranian exiles rallying outside the BBC building protesting this network's hostile policies against the Iranian people.
BBC Persian goes the distance for Iran's regime:
"Why shouldn't Iran's judicial system be allowed to assassinate its opponents?"

US wants Iran to get out of Yemen, says U.S. President Donald Trump in today's cabinet meeting.
Iran is prepared to negotiate about missile program, says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
#Iran says missile program is "non-negotiable with any country and under any circumstances," says Alireza Miryousefi, Minister & head of Media office, Iranian Mission to the United Nations, New York.
You know there is a crisis in #Iran's hierarchy when the regime's head of media in the UN can't spell the twitter handle of his own boss right.
A reminder for @miryousefi - It is @JZarif.

As the EU (and Obama loyalists) scramble to save the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), let’s talk about how Tehran’s history of violating the deal, and appeasers looking the other way.

The deal states limitations on all enrichment-related activities.
Para A Sec 7
“During the 15-year period & as Iran gradually moves to meet int’l qualification standards for nuclear fuel produced in Iran, it will keep its uranium stock under 300 kgs.”…
This demonstrates that Iran’s announcement that it had surpassed the 300-kilogram cap is in direct violation of the JCPOA.…

Let’s talk about #Iran’s controversial nuclear program as Tehran escalates tension with measures violating the 2015 nuclear deal.

Before you defend the mullahs in #Iran & stop efforts to hold them accountable--know the struggle of the #Iranian people & their pains and sufferings as described by imprisoned #humanrights activist #GolrokhIraee… 1/18
We, who tolerated the pain, the poverty, the fall into the depths of fundamentalism, and over a century of tyranny. We, who were lashed but stood up. We, who lost our people but survived. We, who spread our empty tablecloths but carried on.

#Iran #FreeIran
By the grave of our pens, we sang the song of freedom & did not relent. Now we're pounding at the trembling pillars of fundamentalism. Until the cracks in the wall of theocracy r widened, we shall stand, even if the hangman’s poisonous dagger pierces in2 our body..

1. The Trump admin is quietly considering using powers granted to the Treasury Department under the Patriot Act to dramatically cut #Iran's last links to the global financial system, in a move likely intended to hobble #INSTEX, as @TylerCullis explains.…
2. Back in 2011, the Obama admin used Section 311 powers to designate Iran as a “primary money laundering concern." But it never issued the "Final Rule" requiring banks to take onerous "special measures" in order to deal with Iran. Other sanctions on banks were deemed sufficient.
3. Now, the rule is back on the agenda. @TylerCullis warns that if the "Final Rule" is issued, "European banks that maintain accounts on behalf of Iranian financial institutions are likely to take steps to shutter such accounts so as to sustain their own accounts at US banks."
