This will be brief. There is only ONE party to blame for the horrific electricity crisis in Iraq’s south — that fertile and holy land of martyrs where the vast majority of moujahideen of Kata’ib Hizbullah, Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba, Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada, Liwa Abou Fadhl al-Abbas, the Imam Ali (A.S.) Brigade and more are from. And that is the United Snakes of IsraHELL. The corrupt and utterly worthless Iraqi government wants to blame “criminal elements” for the protests that have unfolded the last several days–there isn’t any such element, it’s just the fathers and mothers, wives and children of fighters who put their lives on the line for all Iraqis as well as the entire region and deserve the lights in their blessed houses to be on. Muqtada al-Sadr is blaming Iran but as we all should know by now, he’s an opportunistic, collaborationist piece of filth whose pockets are overflowing with Saudi Arabia’s bloody petrodollars.

There’ll be no deal on Tehran’s nuclear program without the simultaneous lifting of all sanctions against Iran, President Hassan Rouhani stressed, echoing an earlier statement by Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
“If there is no end to sanctions, there will not be an agreement,” Rouhani said in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht. “The end of these negotiations and a signed deal must include a declaration of cancelling the oppressive sanctions on the great nation of Iran.”
By signing the deal, Tehran wants to end its international isolation and build a “constructive interaction with the world and not confrontation,” he said.
Rouhani also stressed that Iran is in negotiations with P5+1 powers (China, France, Russia, UK, US and Germany), but not the US Congress, referring to the standoff between President Obama’s administration and lawmakers over the nuclear deal.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Sunday that he would rather see no deal reached with major powers on his country’s nuclear program than one that undercut national interests.
His comments came as US Secretary of State John Kerry met Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif for a second time on the sidelines of a security conference in Germany, to ratchet up efforts for a lasting nuclear accord.
“I agree with a deal that can take place but I do not agree with a bad deal,” the Iranian leader said, according to the Khamenei.ir website.
“The Americans keep reiterating that it’s better to have no deal than a bad one. I fully agree with that,” he told air force commanders. Continue reading Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei Says No Nuclear Deal Better than Bad One

At the commemoration for the Iran-Iraq war in the city of Qom, the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, talked about the importance of the war in shaping Iran’s identity and achievements at present. He said that today’s officials should continue “the values” of the Sacred Defense, which is how Iran refers to the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s.
Jafari also discussed the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1), reiterating that the negotiations are simply about the nuclear program and not anything beyond that.
He said, “The esteem of Iran is from the achievements of the Sacred Defense. It’s America that with hardship is after a [nuclear] agreement with Iran to resolve its problems. They know that if they have enmity with Iran they will not reach any of their goals and they know that the Islamic revolution is in their way and will not allow them to reach their goals.” Continue reading IRGC commander: Nuclear deal is not a retreat from our values
