Ahmadinejad: The Iranian senior counter-espionage head was a spy for Israel

Referring to the infiltration of Israeli influence into Iran's intelligence and security services, former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad revealed that the highest official in counter-espionage in the country was himself a spy for Israel.

He attributed the success of the Mossad to large-scale operations in Tehran and the seizure of the most important nuclear and space documents within sensitive centers, to the fact that the most senior official in charge of Israeli espionage operations in the Iranian intelligence ministry himself spied for Israel.

He also believes that there is a high-ranking "security gang" in Iran, saying: "This corrupt security gang should explain Israel's role in the assassination of nuclear scientists and the explosives in Natanz. 

"This is not a joke, these are security documents of the state, they came and took it."

He asked, "Was it one piece of paper to put in your pockets and escape? No - it was trucks loaded with documents! How did they escape the country with all the checkpoints there, how did so many trucks loaded with documents leave the country?"

Source: Al-Manar TV (Lebanon)

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said that the long lines at Lebanese gas stations are "humiliating" and that Hizbullah can resolve this humiliation by making the "brave decision" to import fuel from Iran. He made these remarks in a public address that aired on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon) on June 8, 2021. 

Nasrallah said that Lebanon should stop fearing and surrendering to the Americans. He added that Hizbullah could bring in gasoline and diesel tankers from Iran, purchased with local currency.

Hassan Nasrallah: "The sights we have seen in the past few days and weeks on the TV stations... We have seen on TV long queues at the gas stations. This is humiliating. All those who waited in these lines must have felt degraded. Can't we fix it? We can. Why not? We can fix it today, but it requires making a brave political decision. We should stop being afraid of the Americans and stop taking them into consideration.

Iran's man in Washington

During the operation in Gaza, an interview was conducted on one of the American networks with Professor Trita Farsi, who was presented as an "expert and commentator on Middle Eastern affairs."

He harshly criticized Israel and the backing the Biden administration provides to Israel. How unsurprising!

Beneath the guise of an area expert hides who is considered the No. 1 lobbyist of the U.S. ayatollahs' regime.

Farsi (born 1974) is a member of an Iranian family from Ahvaz who fled before the Khomeini revolution to Sweden and from there came to the United States and belongs to the progressive current in the Democratic Party. He has Iranian Swedish citizenship and lives in the United States using the Green Card.

His pro-Iranian activities began in Sweden when he founded in 1997 an organization called "Iranians for International Cooperation" whose stated goal was the removal of sanctions from the ayatollahs' regime.

Upon moving to the United States in 2002, he established the "Iranian-American National Council" designed to promote dialogue between the two countries. According to some reports, this organization received generous funding from Tehran. 'Wad Zarif for years and even met countless times with representatives of the Obama administration before the nuclear deal was signed in 2015. Not surprisingly the council opposed moves made by the Trump administration including the attempt to declare the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organization.
In 2018, Percy left the council. This happened at a time when Republicans were beginning to question the legality of its activities in the United States.

After the closure of the "National Council", Farsi began to head a new research institute that, of course, advocated the lifting of sanctions on Iran and the heavier pressure on Israel.

Defense Minister Ganz has declared companies that help transfer tens of millions of dollars from Iran to Hamas, as terrorist organizations

Defense Minister Bnei Gantz said this morning: "We will continue to harm the Iran-Hamas axis, and cut off the chain of transfer of funds to the military arm of terrorist organizations."

The Minister of Defense, Bnei Gantz, declared two companies owned by Zahir Younes Shmalach, a money changer from the Gaza Strip, as terrorist organizations, on the recommendation of the National Economic Counter-Terrorism Headquarters.

According to intelligence collected and processed by the IDF Intelligence Division, the companies, exchanges "Al-Merkazia LaLatsrapa" and "Arab al-Zin", have been helping to transfer funds to Hamas, and in particular to the organization's military wing, amounting to tens of millions of dollars. .

These funds, which originate in Iran, are provided as part of Quds Force support for terrorist organizations working against the State of Israel. In addition, the funds are transferred with the direct assistance of the companies, with the full awareness of those in charge, using the 'Hawala' mechanism, as well as with the other means and contacts at their disposal, for the benefit of the Hamas terrorist organization.

This declaration by the Minister of Defense, by virtue of his authority in the Anti-Terrorism Law, is intended to constitute an additional pillar in preventing the strengthening of the military arm and preventing its recovery from the heavy damage caused to it as a result of "Operation Guardian of the Walls".

This announcement sends a clear and unequivocal message to the merchant public in the Gaza Strip, according to which any economic activity carried out through the companies owned by Malach will lead to the imposition of strong economic sanctions and the prevention of trade to and from the Gaza Strip. The announcement could even lead to the restriction and prevention of the global activity of these companies financially and business-wise.

The Minister of Defense will use all the tools at his disposal to prevent any economic activity of the recognized and leading companies, at border crossings and around the world, and will prevent companies and businessmen from financing terrorist organizations that work against the State of Israel.

Iran is working to undermine the PA rule in the West Bank

Senior PA officials express concern that Iran is working through Hamas to ignite a major intifada in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which will also spread to the Arab sector in Israel, in order to undermine the stability of the PA chairman's rule and bring about his overthrow.

The explosion in the security situation in the territories and in Israel during the month of Ramadan encouraged Iran that the situation on the ground was ripe for a comprehensive intifada against Israel, according to Hamas sources.

In recent days, senior Iranian officials have held telephone conversations with Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders Ismail Haniya and Ziad Nahala and expressed strong support for the rocket attack on Israel, strengthening them and encouraging them to continue firing rockets at Israel.

Among those who spoke with Hamas leader and Islamic Jihad, General Ismail Ka'ani, commander of the Quds Force in Iran's "Revolutionary Guards", as well as Ali Akbar Wiliati, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Disappointment in the defense establishment from talks with the US; Assessment: Sanctions imposed by the previous administration will be removed
The reports of the security delegation that went to Washington in order to influence the emerging agreement were received with frustration. Military sources estimate that the Biden administration is determined to move forward with the signing, and will therefore meet Tehran's demands to end the process by June and remove the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration on senior Revolutionary Guards officials. The defense establishment is already internalizing that the Israeli battle over the details of the agreement is lost, and is preparing for the next battle to determine rigid and transparent law enforcement agencies that will oversee the Iranian nuclear project and establishment in the Middle East. The IDF Intelligence Division, in order to strengthen its independence in gathering intelligence on Iran with an emphasis on the nuclear project, and on third-tier countries in general - without relying on intelligence coming from the United States and intelligence organizations from Europe. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Source: Walla News
