US, ‘Israel’ behind Yemen’s claims against Iran: Saeb Shaath

West and Israel became so desperate they want to slow down this industrial and scientific progress taking place in Iran, in a country that is militarily powerful and they cannot attack. They wanted to do anything to diminish the country and impose more sanctions… so they are trying to crack and collapse the country from within ,so the people, the Iranian people themselves will move against their government

Yemen, the best help to USA.

Yemen, the best help to USA.

 

An analyst says Yemen is run by America’s CIA and Saudi Arabia and implicating Iran in smuggling weapons while drones bomb Yemenis is just demonization and threat.

In the background of this the Yemeni government has asked the United Nations to probe a ship it claims contained Iran-made weapons thereby accusing Iran of smuggling arms into Yemen. The Yemeni government in it’s United Nations application could confirm the weapons were Iranian. Iran has denied that it is meddling in Yemen’s domestic affairs. Meanwhile the US has intensified drone strikes in Yemen sparking fear among the Yemeni residents. The Yemeni government has approved these drone attacks.

Press TV has interviewed Saeb Shaath, author and Middle East expert,  about this issue. The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Why do you think the Yemeni government is accusing Iran of smuggling weapons into Yemen?

Shaath: Remember that such accusations they come from Hadi’s government who were hand picked by the US and Saudi Arabia to replace a tyrant who were  rejected by the people Ali Abdullah Saleh. The US guaranteed in that way the continuation of the cooperation of the Yemeni  Hadi’s government to serve the United States of America’s agenda and that of Saudi Arabia.

Here if I want to link this to other events actually happening lately where they are trying to implicate Iran and they have many Western and imperialist Zionists plots at work across the globe as I see it. You have the Argentinean attack, the Bulgaria attack in which they tried to implicate Hezbollah and so with Iran and you have other things as well.

This accusation against Iran comes as the US intensifies its drone attacks in Yemen and intensifies its Hops to open negotiations with the Iranian leadership so in that way it can  influence the slowing down…the growth of Iran [Industrial progress] Imam Ali Khamenei closed the door on direct nuclear talks offered by, what’s his name, Joe Biden the vice president of the United States. Khamenei said the US they want talks, but it doesn’t solve anything these talks… And he continued saying you are holding a gun against Iran and the Iranian nation will not be frightened by threats.

The threats as we can see from here, the Yemeni ship comes, they try to frame Iran and implicate  Iran as the one who is smuggling weapons into Yemen and what we know from the 1960s whom causing all the trouble in Yemen is Saudi Arabia with its British and Israeli friends. And now Saudi Arabia with the CIA are trying to keep the country destabilized and accuse Iran of interfering there.

All of that  because the West and Israel became so desperate they want to slow down this industrial and scientific progress taking place in Iran, in a country that is militarily powerful and they cannot attack. They  wanted to do anything to diminish the country and impose more sanctions… so they are trying to crack and collapse the country from within ,so the people, the Iranian people themselves will move against their government. That’s their only hope they are playing at, at the moment.

Iran’s ‘logical path’ to saving JCPOA

Press TV talkes to Dr Saeb Shaath about his take on roadmap that leads the US to return to its commitment and lift the sanctions imposed on Iran.

Tehran has never severed ties with the IAEA

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tehran is proposing a logical path to the US for its full compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. Zarif said the United States should first return to the full compliance and then Iran will reciprocate after rapid verification of Washington’s compliance. Zarif also stressed that all sanctions imposed by Former President Donald Trump must be removed. This comes as Iran and the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal end another round of talks aimed at reviving the agreement. More negotiations are set to be held next Wednesday.

Thousands of political prisoners in Bahrain are facing deaths

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation

Saeb Shaath Said “Thousands of political activists, political ‎dissidents, opposition figures, women and even ‎children in Bahraini prisons are facing deaths ‎
cleric …Sheikh Isa Qassim …has warned of that ‎and demanded their immediate release ,,,,,, he ‎called on the Al khalifa regime to choose between ‎the deaths of the dissident inmates and their ‎release…‎

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation …‎”

Shaath explained

“That is to force them to stop demanding Al ‎Khalifah regime to allow reforms for ‎establishing of a just and fair system that ‎reflects and represents the people interests .‎
On April 6 2020, 21 International ‎human rights organisations among ‎them were Amnesty international and ‎human rights first
‎ called on the Bahraini regime to release ‎all political prisoners ….as the release of ‎‎1,486 prisoners on 17 March 2020 only ‎included 394 prisoners sentenced on ‎political charges….‎
‎While the western governments applause ‎Bahrain’s so called great amnesty .‎”
‎ Saeb Shaath noted that “Most political opponents, activists, ‎human rights defenders, and journalists ‎remain incarcerated.‎
‎ Among them are influential members of ‎Al Wefaq party such as former ‎secretary-general Hassan Mushaima, ‎and Sheikh Ali Salman, ‎
as well as human rights activists ‎Abdulhadi Al Khawaja and Nabeel ‎Rajab”.‎
‎ Shaath added ” the hypocrisy of the west shines by keeping ‎closed eyes over atrocities committed by the ‎Bahraini regime against the prisoners … All ‎are well aware that Bahrain carries out ‎the execution of political prisoners. ‎
Bahraini authorities habitually diluting ‎human rights abuses by sentencing or ‎executing prisoners during holidays or ‎on days of religious celebrations to ‎prevent any reaction from international ‎institutions or media.‎”

Shaath concluded by saying ” Its well documented that the actions of ‎the Bahraini regime violate ‎international law and Bahrain’s ‎international human rights obligations, ‎
including the UN Convention Against ‎Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or ‎Degrading Treatment or Punishment, ‎
the International Covenant on Civil and ‎Political Rights, the International ‎Covenant on Economic, Social, and ‎Cultural Rights along with the Arab ‎Charter of Human Rights “..‎

Who is behind the assassination of Iranian Scientists?

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.”

US officials say Zionist entity “Israel” was behind the assassination: New York Times “One American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that “Israel” was behind the attack on the scientist,” The New York Times reported on Friday.

Fakhrizadeh’s name was mentioned multiple times in a presentation in 2018 by Zionist entity “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which he repeated baseless claims about the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu described the scientist as the director of Iran’s nuclear program and threatened, “Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh.”

The Tel Aviv regime has made several attempts over the past years to throw a wrench in Tehran’s peaceful nuclear work. The regime has been behind the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists. It has also conduced cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear sites.

Dmitry Polyanskiy @Dpol_un “That’s a telling analysis from @nytimes reflecting readiness of US establishment to give green light to political extra territorial assasinations. Not a thing to boast for a democratic country! #Iran #Fakhrizadeh”.

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.” @aaronjmate .

The senior Iranian defense official was assassinated near the capital Tehran in a terrorist attack. In a statement, the Defense ministry said the vehicle of the head of the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was targeted by terrorists.

The Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif said the act of cowardice shows the desperate warmongering of its perpetrators adding that there are serious indications of an Israeli role in the assassination. Zarif also urged the international community, especially the EU, to end QUOTE “their shameful double standards and condemn the Iranian defense official’s assassination.

Between 2010 and 2012, four other Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated. Tehran and western intelligence agencies have long put the blame on Zionist entity “Israel”, an accusation that was never rejected by officials of the Israeli regime.
