Agents of Iraq’s National Security organ headed by Faleh al-Fayad and the Badr Organization of Hadi al-Ameri looted and stole property from Camp Ashraf belonging to the Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty
Iraqi agents used 50 flatbed trucks to carry out the stolen goods that include vehicles and loot from 10 large warehouses in recent weeks.
On September 5, 2013 a joint plan between UNAMI and the U.S. Embassy in Iraq for the evacuation of Camp Ashraf when the last group of residents left Ashraf based on this plan stipulates that the Government of Iraq “shall safeguard and guarantee all Ashraf property”.
In July, Nouri al-Maliki handed over Camp Ashraf to the Commander of the terrorists Badr Organization Hadi al-Ameri to use the camp for assembling the terrorist militias affiliated with the Iranian regime.
Since then agents affiliated with the office Iraqi National Security Advisor Faleh al-Fayad, the Badr Organization and the Iraqi Intelligence officially responsible for safeguarding the properties began looting and stealing the belongings of Iranian dissidents that had remained in the camp based on a plan by the office of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Washington Examiner editorial
When dealing with the Soviets and their nuclear aggression, President Ronald Reagan famously cited an old Russian proverb: “Trust, but verify.”
In his current dealings with Iran and its nuclear ambitions, President Obama seems to be forgetting about that second part. He’s asking Americans to trust a negotiating adversary who keeps trying to remind the world that it remains the same bad actor it was during the 1979 hostage crisis.
Nearly a year into the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran, it becomes more and more apparent that the American people are watching a bad deal unfold as it gets hatched in their name. Several new and alarming hints have emerged in just the last few days that should make everyone suspicious.
One of them was the incredible and extremely provocative decision by Iranian officials to tweet out — as negotiations proceeded — a nine-point plan for annihilating Israel and making all of its Jews “return to their home countries.” In the world of international relations, this sort of plan is typically referred to as “ethnic cleansing.” Continue reading DEAL WITH IRAN KEEPS GETTING WORSE

The Tower- In 2009, at the beginning of his first term in office, President Barack Obama announced that his administration would be seeking to “directly engage” with Iran. Nonetheless, Obama acknowledged that Iran’s “actions over many years now have been unhelpful when it comes to promoting peace and prosperity both in the region and around the world; that their attacks or their financing of terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas, the bellicose language that they’ve used towards Israel, their development of a nuclear weapon, or their pursuit of a nuclear weapon — that all those things create the possibility of destabilizing the region.”
Nearly five years later, in a 2013 press release announcing the Joint Plan of Action regarding Iran’s nuclear program, the Obama administration issued a fact sheet about the deal with Iran, noting that though some sanctions had been relaxed, “[a]ll of our targeted sanctions related to Iran’s state sponsorship of terrorism, its destabilizing role in the Syrian conflict, and its abysmal human rights record, among other concerns, remain in effect.”
However, despite ongoing negotiations, during the past year Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism and destabilization of its neighbors has continued, and in many ways worsened. Continue reading 10 WAY IRAN SUBVERTS THE MIDDLE EAST (AND THE WORLD)

Various pains don’t let me have a decent night’s sleep. Last night I had another nightmare. It has been nearly a year now that I have endured such conditions in Camp Liberty. It was five years ago when that horrific event happened and it comes back to haunt me again and again. I was the driver of a minibus and I took around my refugee friends across Camp Ashraf in Iraq, the 25-year home of 3,000 Iranian refugees opposing the mullahs’ regime. July 28, 2009 was a hot summer day in Iraq and from the very beginning I felt fire was pouring down from the sky. However, the beauty of the tree-lined roads in Camp Ashraf had overshadowed everything. I was preparing the vehicle for the residents when I heard the bad news: Maliki government forces had attacked Ashraf!!? I was taking a number of passengers when I saw a number of passengers streak by with their sirens running. With the utmost unbelief and curiosity after I took the passengers to their destination I thought it would be better to go to entrance gate.

In today’s world almost everyone is aware of the dirty act of hostage-taking. When one hears a phrase, reads it or sees it, like it or not similar actions and objectives, along with a repeated scenario, come to mind. However, the evil spirits in all the dirty frameworks are too similar and common, wherever they may be, and they only encourage more hideous crimes and actions.
Right now I want you to join me for a few moments to get informed with a new type of hostage taking. I have just one request: in any state you may be reading these lines, empty your thoughts for a few moments for the sake of the rights of human beings, so that you would completely understand and come along with me. Now I want to take you to a ‘prisonlike’ place where 2,800 noble and freedom-loving human beings are and one third of which are women. Therefore, during the next few moments that we reach there I prefer to brief you a bit on its history. The ironic part is that many people, meaning the so-called “human rights activists” have dubbed this place “Camp Liberty” and they insist the residents must accept this name, too. Continue reading Camp Liberty: Even time is taken hostage
Six more prisoners were hanged in Iran on November 13 as the execution rate soars under so-called ‘moderate’ Hassan Rouhani.
Two men named as Vahid Shahbakhsh and Mahmoud Shahbakhsh were hanged in the main prison in the city of Zahedan, south-eastern Iran.
Vahid, in his 30s, had been sentenced to three years in prison plus execution and was held in section 4 of the prison.
Mahmoud, 26, had been sentenced to death was being held in section 1 of the prison.
Both men were classified as ‘security’ prisoners, a term the Iranian regime uses for the inmates that are not being held as criminals. There is no information available on any legal process the men may have gone through. Continue reading Six more hanged in Iran as regime execution rate soars

23 years ago in Iran I was a die-hard supporter of Ayatollah Khomeini, who depicted himself as the representative of God on Earth and said, “If you die for me you will go to Heaven.” Born in a poor, religious family I had no reason not to believe him. Low culture and poor economic status was one of the main elements that helped his recruiting, and at times it provided basic means that these individuals never had access to. The fundamentalists even described our poverty and hunger as a guarantee of our emancipation in life after death!
I was only 19 and the 1991 Persian Gulf War had just ended when I was enlisted in the Revolutionary Guards and we entered Iraq in a small group to promote Khomeini’s version of Islam. The mission that I was briefed on was to first deliver blows to Khomeini’s dissidents, meaning members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, and thus pursue our ultimate strategy being the occupation of Iraq.
