Iranian President Hasan Rouhani — who former U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman says should be treated as “an international pariah” because his country “has more blood on its hands” than North Korea – has been warmly received by some members of the United Nations this week.
Rouhani’s visit to New York follows revelations of the Obama administration’s controversial decision to ship $1.7 billion to Iran — an arrangement the administration insists did not amount to paying ransom.
But the cash appeared to secure the release of U.S. prisoners in Iran, while consummating a deal with Iran’s mullahs that was intended to limit their nuclear enrichment activities for about a decade.

Kingdom has strongly condemned the terrorist rocket attack last week on Camp Liberty, Iraq, home to members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK). Continue reading UK strongly condemns rocket attack on PMOI in Camp Liberty
Pro-Iran militia groups in Iraq on Monday, July 4th staged a new rocket attack against Camp Liberty near Baghdad International Airport, home to the remaining members of the Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), destroying a large number of trailers and creating havoc amongst the community of Iranian refugees.
Early reports indicate a number of the residents in the camp have been injured and transferred to a nearby hospital for medical care. This is the latest rocket attack against this camp after the deadly 29 October 2015 attack that left over 24 residents killed and a large section of the camp leveled. This new rocket barrage is staged after 8 days of an intensified siege on Liberty imposed at the behest of the Iranian regime through the crackdown committee controlling daily affairs in the camp. All deliveries of fuel, food, medicine and hygiene products into Liberty have been banned and most recently even the rented sewage dump tracks are not allowed into the camp. This has left the residents facing a major hygiene crisis as the black water tanks will overflow into the residential areas.
The residents of Camp Liberty were promised protection by the United Nations, the U.S. government and the government of Iraq. However, they have been the targets of five different rocket attacks from February 2013 to this day, leaving dozens of residents killed and injured. This recent attack has left the residents in further fear of their uncertain future in Iraq.
2016, for the fourth successive day, the Governmental Committee tasked to suppress Camp Liberty residents has prevented entry of tankers carrying fuel and oil for generators, and trucks carrying food stuffs, hygiene products and medicine to Camp Liberty. They have sent back the tankers and trucks after stopping them for some time. This inhumane measure which has started since June 27th, will rapidly create a crisis in the Camp.

mullahs’ regime is continuing its use of mass executions, barbaric punishments, floggings and widespread arrests during the holy month of Ramadan, which is considered amongst Muslims in Iran and all other Islamic countries as a period of friendship, kindness and benevolence.
Iranian authorities on June 15 sent five prisoners to the gallows in the central prisons of Bandar Abbas (southern Iran) and Yasouj (southwestern Iran). In the early days of Ramadan (2nd week of June) a deprived worker was horrifically flogged in public in the town of Ghir and Karzin in Fars Province (central Iran) under the pretext of eating during fasting hours. A number of other people in various cities including Hamedan, Isfahan and Islam Shahr have been arrested for similar reasons.
