David, that show in Austin live on stage in that great city is the next time we will be together with an audience and by that time we will know whether the United States men are heading to knock out delirium or whether they're boarding the USS burr halter and sailing right back to our loving arms. And it's as big a game as our American men have played in recent history and it's more than just our survival in this competition that we depend on. It's really whether this tournament can serve as a springboard for the growth of the game we love in the nation. We adore ahead of the 2026 World Cup, which will be held across widespread nafta territories. The YMCA territories. I don't know, by the way, how they did that. That's incredible. And the navy was a better single. Yeah, I totally agree. Definitely a better single. Just didn't have the hand motions. I know. It's best pure pound for pound musically. It's just simple. I'm going to suggest that to claiming that they actually call our territories. Maybe Mexico should use it as their national anthem. Oh my God. I've had two factor authenticate after doing world corrupt. And now you've got Mexico chasing this as well after this baby.

Iran bolsters border security to prevent 'infiltration'

"Iran is bolstering security at its northern border to clamp down on what the government says is infiltration by Kurdish opposition groups, Iran's news agency of reported that the country's revolutionary guard has deployed armored and special forces units to the western northwest provinces, the move is an attempt to stop the influx of Kurdish opposition groups that have been exiled in Iraq, Tehran believes the exiles are orchestrating country wide anti government protests. The Kurdish groups deny the claim and to date Iran has provided no evidence to back it up. Iran has several military bases near the Iraqi border and forces have been present there on a rotating basis for decades. I'm Karen Chammas

Fresh update on "iran" discussed on The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show

"More of the clay Travis and buck Sexton show sound off starts now. Buck. The World Cup will start in like ten minutes. Before you talk about the World Cup, can I just, I have a correction. I needed some chalk today to increase my focus and my energy as I was talking. It is stochastic. Not to chastise, stochastic terrorism. But this is one of these moments where I like to learn about things by reading. So I'm reading about this all the time. I've actually never heard the word said. I've only read it hundreds and hundreds of times. So this is one of those play noses. How many words I mispronounce? If you, if you mispronounced many words as me, you wouldn't be able to sleep at night. I hate getting things wrong, and I hate saying things wrong. Sony, I just want to correct that. Now we can talk it so does stochastic, by the way, stochastic terrorism you might say, well, I was in the counter terrorism center of the CIA. You know how many times I heard about that? Zero. It is a new thing that they've taken from statistics that they now talk about in the context of terrorism. But yes, it is a hard, a hard C and now clay. Sorry, thank you for letting me correct that and also obviously I could use some chalk chalk dot com CHO Q dot com today. The World Cup, sir. What do we got? So the World Cup starts in about ten minutes. U.S. is playing whales. And we are small favorite in this game. Our group for people out there who may not be paying attention is Iran. It is Wales. It is England and the United States. So we play England, I believe, on Friday, and then Wales, sorry, Iran, to finish out the group stage, two of the four teams will advance from the group. The Iranian team buck, I don't know if you saw this. They refused to sing along with the national anthem of Iran, which is evidently a huge tradition in their country. Every player refused to sing to stand up for the people protesting against the Iranian government. Now, this is actual real bravery, unlike what we often refer to in the United States when somebody takes a knee for the national anthem and they end up getting a shoe contract or their own television show, like this is potentially a something that could put some of these players in prison. It could lead to violent acts against them or their family. This is a pretty brave act. So I think this is going to turn into a big story internationally, but I asked people out there how they thought the U.S. would do in the World Cup. And I also said, I gave people an option. I don't care, I hate soccer. This was a Twitter poll. What percentage of my audience book in this poll? Do you think said, I don't care. I hate soccer. Of your audience? Yes. Of extremely enthusiastic SEC football fans? 60% of them hate soccer. 37% said they don't care. They hate socks. Oh, that's not that bad. That's not that bad. About two thirds said they care. What percentage of our audience listening right now? Do you think we'll watch a World Cup game involving the United States men's team? 10%. Only ten. I think so. See, I would go because Friday the game is happening on a holiday when a lot of people are at home looking for things to do. I actually think something like half of our audience will watch one of these games. I mean, I would like to watch the U.S. play England just because the British are better than us at two things. Soccer and making crumpets. And this will upset them if we are able to beat them. So that makes me very happy. But we probably won't beat them, which is the fact that this is the other part of it. I want to read, I'm always rooting for America. But it's hard for America and soccer because we tend to do not well as the men's team tends to not do well. We talked about this before the show started. You are watching with your brothers. And so you are going to try to avoid completely what the results are of this game until later in the afternoon. But beating Wales like, isn't that kind of like beating the principality of Monaco or something? I mean, let's be serious, folks. These whales even really a country. I know it is. People are like, yes, it is. Kind of a small favorite. So I'm gonna have this game on. I'm gonna try not to react for the first half because the first half is being played in the final hour of our game. And I just, I can't not watch sports alive. I've tried the DVR at everything else. My phone blows up. People are texting me because they assume that I watch every sporting event. So I basically would just have to turn my phone off and not allow myself to watch it at all. So it's starting in about 5 minutes. And I'm curious how much it's gonna go. To your point, though, on the Iranian on the Iranian team, not taking a stand because of the crackdown on the protest that's been going on over there and the, look, Iran is a totalitarian theocracy. I mean, it's the government there is evil and depressive, and that is all very true. But when they do that, they don't get a bigger Nike contract. They don't risk. They are actually going to suffer the consequences of standing up for what they view is moral. In this country, when we have athletes that are taking a knee or that are so upset about the cops and they're wearing the hoodies or whatever they're doing, their marketability goes up. That's right. They get nothing but celebrity saying, look at how brave stunning and brave they are, so it's a very different thing. Being a freedom

UN rights body deplores Iran crackdown, establishes probe

"The UN Human Rights Council has voted to condemn the bloody crackdown on protests in Iran and to set up an investigation into the alleged abuses. The resolution put forward by both Germany and Iceland was backed by 25 nations, Germany's foreign minister and Elena said regime that uses this power to violate the rights of its own people is violating the values of our United Nations. The protests were triggered by the death more than two months ago of 22 year old Mars amini, while in the custody of the morality police for violating a strictly enforced Islamic dress code, Iran's representative at the meeting, Karim, said her death was being investigated by Iranian authorities before the west started to meddle into Iran's internal affairs. Before the formal announcement of the probe analysis, the biased and hasty reaction are the number of western authorities and their interventions in internal affairs of Iran turned the peaceful assemblies into riots and violence.

Republicans Discuss How to Move Away From Trump

"Welcome back, America two here at David and drucker. I didn't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan either because he is from California, but he was in Las Vegas last week for the first Republican candidate walk. It sort of like a fashion show and all the Republican candidates show up and this time it was the Republican Jewish coalition headed up by our old friend norm Coleman. David good, Thanksgiving week to you. What did you learn in Las Vegas? I tweeted out your article, but you tell us. It was very interesting weekend. I think what struck me the most is that there is a lot of consideration now and very open public consideration of whether or not they want, whether or not Republican activists and donors, but not just donors, but activists, people who knock on doors, all of that stuff. Want Donald Trump to continue to be the titular head of the party. He's obviously the FrontRunner for the 2024 nomination having announced he's a former president. He's got a very strong relationship with the Republican base. But after three consecutive electoral defeats, particularly this last one stinging because of how it unfolded and the opportunities that were there for Republicans, there was just a lot of talk about wanting fresh leadership continue the former president's policies by and large, but somebody fresh. I got that. Not just Rome Republicans who want to take his place, like Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley. I talked to a number of Republicans, not Haley, but a number of the names that I just listed. But also just talking to the activists that were there. And I think people need to keep in mind the Republican Jewish coalition initially skeptical of Trump in the 2016 campaign really warm to him quite immensely because his record in the Middle East and as it relates to Israel and Iran and everything else in that region of the world was stellar from their point of view and very accomplished from their point of view. So it's not like, well, they never really liked them anyway. If you became a fan favorite.

Amber Athey: Issues With Ronna McDaniel

"I have a lot of issues with ronna McDonald right now not least of which is the fact that she has now overseen three losing election cycles And yes I do consider this a loss even though we technically did win the house It was so far below expectations that I don't think anyone should be really celebrating And I have spoken to some activists and party organizers who point a lot of fingers at the RNC for its failure to really take up this red wave They didn't have a whole lot of money because Iran has been really dependent on the joint fundraising committee with Trump in order to get any donations into the RNC Their ground game in terms of where they sent their field staffers was completely inept They sent more field staffers to red states in some cases than they did to some of these toss up races And they also had this really weird scheme to capture what they call delinquent voters and I'm writing about this for the spectator right now The piece will be out tomorrow morning but what they refer to as a delinquent voter is basically if someone voted a month before the election in 2020 and hadn't voted let's say two weeks before the midterm election in 2022 the RNC was going to reach out to them and make sure that they voted But why were the efforts spent on targeting people who were probably going to vote anyway as opposed to trying to get the undecideds and independents who usually decide these elections So I think everything about their strategy here was just really backwards and a lot of it comes down to the fact that Rana has not proven herself in any of these battles and yet somehow keeps control of the leadership there at the RNC It's really horrible that she hasn't had to answer for any of this

Thank you, Dan. I appreciate you having me on. And now this is going to be an interesting one because we know Donald Trump is jumping in and we hear. Chris Christie talking about the independence that he's going to turn off and that perhaps maybe someone like Iran desantis is better suited. I would contend Carl that there aren't a lot of moderates independent. I almost feel like they're kind of like the unicorn. Everybody is so divided. Everybody has such strong opinions right now. And I believe what happened to our friendly older, it doesn't matter who you are. If you have a Republican buy your name, they're going to come after you. I don't know if you're Trump or just say it to whoever you are. They're coming for you. Yeah, honestly, this is why Jen, when we get in power, the Republican Party, we need to willpower. I mean, it's just simple as that, listen, I don't think that Trump is a liability to the GOP, that's a bunch of nonsense. I defer a little bit in where I don't, I didn't like the tag to desantis. I think this is the time to be united and not divided unless they do get into a primary. But I'll say this. I want Trump to be the next president. And I'll tell you, I'll tell you why.

I mean, just watching him get sworn in as senator is going to be a world embarrassment, not an embarrassment to Pennsylvania and the Democrats. It will be a world embarrassment to America. So in the break, you said something fascinating about the strategic communications of this campaign and kitchen table politics. Would you unpack that for our 3 million listeners now cash? Yeah. Oh, absolutely. So look, I agree with you. President Trump went out there and rallied. Hard for all the America first candidates on the border on the drug trade on Chinese fentanyl on healthcare on the economy on Russia, China and Iran. And those translate well generally across the nation. But what the candidates themselves have to do under that is connect those issues to their constituency. And have to translate it for them and say, look, your lives are going to be and have been impacted for the worse by these larger scale issues. But every night, when you sit down at the kitchen table with your family for dinner, how are I, the candidate going to improve your life on a daily basis. And the candidates fail to carry that message that president Trump set up globally to the micro level to the county level to the town level. And Pennsylvania is the perfect example. I

"Now, throughout this, there are some harrowing moments. You almost drowned in the Suez Canal. You mentioned it centimeters. If someone doesn't extend to hand, you're dead because you jumped in the water with, I don't know how many kilometers of how many kilograms of weight on you and you were sinking like a rock. Another time you have to get a soldier off of his knees in the Golan Heights. In fact, the Golan Heights were hard on both you and your brothers, all of them. So it's a matter of interest in war. When you're making that decision to go or not go and this is going to lead me to Iran. What is the, what is the ultimate calculation, mister prime minister? I think the first thing is whether you can maintain a clear head in the midst of battle or in the midst of that enormous duress in the. Firefight. We were at the time at war with Egypt happily that's behind us, but we had a terrible war of attrition and we were being attacked by the Egyptians across the canal to our side. And raiding our people, killing them, killing them wholesale. And the army command decided to send my unit to their side of the canal. And we successfully did that one night and Egyptian military convoy and that's, by the way, not a pleasant experience to see the sea of people in agony and died something that I never and every rejoice then put it this way. But of course, there was great rejoicing on our side, so they said, okay, we'll send you another car. And 48 hours passed between the successful rate and the next one. And as we got into these zodiac rubber boats, across the canal, the as we approach close to the Egyptian side of the canal, the Egyptians dug voxels every hundred meters without our knowing it. And they opened this horrific fire at us, which killed one of my friends in the post ride in front of us. And I

Ali Velshi's Worldwide Perspective on the Turn From True Democracy

"If anyone has a worldview because you report from all over the world all the time, it's that, right? Netanyahu is making a comeback. What's his name, Bolsonaro, thank God, just lost, but it is this ongoing worldwide battle, isn't it? About autocracy fascism. There are a couple of standouts though in that. So Netanyahu, mama had been Salman who doesn't have to run for elections ever. Vladimir Putin who doesn't have to run for elections ever. And Xi Jinping. We have a few people here who are in a much better position if Donald Trump were to win the election. And Donald Trump now looks like we'll declare that he's running for president on according to some sources on November the 14th. So there are people who are setting up for it, right? So Saudi Arabia and Iran got together to cut oil production to increase oil prices right before an election to hurt Democrats. And because they would like to hurt Democrats and they'd like Donald Trump in power. Netanyahu facing indictment and all sorts of things want to be prime minister of Israel looks like that's actually going to happen. And have never had a better friend than Donald Trump. So there's two themes going on in the world. There's a general lurch to the right, but not just the right toward fascism toward all these things. And I think a lot of people don't understand that having the vote does not guarantee you democracy, right? Iran has about Russia has a vote. All these people vote. But there's this lurch to the right, and then there's a bunch of people in the world setting up for Donald Trump to regain the top spot as the anti democratic guy in chief. And that's a big issue. You've now heard a lot of Republicans talking about, I don't know if we should spend this kind of money in Ukraine. Kevin McCarthy Senate Marjorie Taylor Greene said it. You know, so I am very worried that that is an abstraction to a lot of Americans, right? We're dealing with the price of gas. The price of food, and these are all very, very real issues with interest rates going up and inflation. But if democracy ends while we're worried about that, it's going to be a problem.

Inside Iran With Dr. Walid Phares

"Let's go back to what's happening inside Iran in that case. So if you look at revolutions, if you look at regime changes from the ground up, there's a pivotal moment where the dictatorship, it's that moment in Christmas Day 1989, where ceausescu is on the balcony, giving his speech, and the people say no, the secret police open fire, but then when he tries in escapes in the military helicopter, the pilot says he fakes an engine problem, lands the helicopter in the middle of nowhere. The local barracks arrests ceausescu and his wife, and does a military tribunal. There has to be that moment where the organs of state power say we will no longer persecute our fellow citizens. As in Hungary, for example, units of the police or the military handed over their weapons to the students, is that I know this is very hard because Iran, along with North Korea is a very hard target in terms of intelligence and open-source material. Are there any indications of fishes of factions of fractures inside the regime? Could we imagine some units somewhere of the pasta run or somebody saying very legitimate questions have actually. Because that's the key. And I haven't been asked this question before. Let me tell you my experience. I've been following this since 79. I was a kid at the time. And what these units inside the guard or mostly inside the regular army would be waiting for. And let me jump to example or Eastern Europe. They did it because in Washington there was a strong leadership of Reagan Bush Reagan tear down that wall, bush was pushing forward. There is a difference between demonstrators, young people, demonstrating and people who are in the units and the military they need guarantees what will happen to us. They want to feel safe. Voila. So as long as we have this demonstration as long as we have Biden supporting the regime. Yes, they need a voice. Now, if the Congress acts with the strong voice that will go with this, they will buy this. But without the administration or Congress or the Europeans, it's going to be difficult,

Dr. Walid Phares Comments on the Relationship Between Russia and Iran

"So the big question, the reason I wanted to have you in studio in front of the cameras professor is to ask about this seemingly shocking news that a nation that was ranked second in the world only to America in terms of its military might. That's the Russian Federation. In a war against Ukraine, which was ranked 22nd, so second fighting 22nd and doesn't seem to be winning, we actually have photographs now from Ukraine and others of Iranian drones being captured by the Ukrainians that are being deployed by the Russians. What is going on? Why is a Middle Eastern country that is economically on its knees? Providing. Aerial vehicles to Russia to a superpower. You know, when that started actually and the Iranian regime is not shy about it, they're making statements. Oh, these officers, I call them the Africa corps take sent into Russia to fight Ukraine. And then I investigated by listening a little bit to the social media on the one hand, and of course some sources in Iran talk a lot. So it looks like it's much bigger than just providing drones to Russia. I mean, Iran providing it's Russia that's providing the ballistics to Iran. So there is a strategic reason. And that reason is the following. Iran is preparing itself to declare that it is a nuclear power. How? On the one hand, they're doing the decoy strategy, which is they are building that nuclear power. Reality is Russia is going to say, to their own people, Iran helped us in the darkest hours. They send their drugs. They were all good friends. They were a good friend. So is that what we're going to do when Iran is threatened this regime, especially now, we're going to stretch our nuclear umbrella

"Of the country. And how has the government responded so far to all these protests? Abraham rise, the president has given orders to security forces to use what means they have to suppress the demonstrations. It does appear as if the crackdown is intensifying. That said at the moment the authorities seem very much focused on trying to stop protests. And it's really striking from speaking to people in Iran now that women are walking around the streets as if the mandatory veil had gone. There's a new mood of defiance. People are going out in the streets and dressing as they want. And please probably too preoccupied at least for the time being to stop them. They're very much focused on trying to break up and disperse protests. And in fact, there's one person I spoke to was concerned that if one of the reasons why the protests are likely to continue is that if they stop the authorities would carry out even larger numbers of mass arrests that this is almost a way of trying to keep the authorities at bay from going after picking off individuals again or reimposing some of the social controls that I think Iranians feel at least for now they've managed to free themselves from. It also has to be said, I think that this is a deeply polarized place at the moment. There are many conservative Iranians that are religious Iranians and some of The Rain and suspect you from conservative families say that they're not quite concerned about going out on the streets just from the hassle and the harassment and abuse they might get from those who are supporting the protesters. So you're looking at a deeply polarized Iran. And in that deeply polarized era, then where do you see all of this heading? There have been calls for a national strike. So far, it doesn't seem that the country has yet granted that standstill if those calls for strike action do intensify at the moment most of the action seems to be limited to universities. If those spread, then that's going to be an indicator of where things are going. I think you're looking at now at a business community that is just waiting to see which way this is going. But ultimately, this is a regime which has had 40 years of dealing with protest of dealing with dissent that knows that it's deeply unpopular. There are some in the system who believe that with half a million supporters, they can control a population of 84 million. They've also learned from the downfall of the Shah when they came to power that what you don't do is to retreat in the face of protest. They have the guns they're going to use them. The population is also very experienced a protest. You're seeing one round of protests follow another with increasing rapidity. It used to be that they would take place every once a decade. Now they're taking place several times a year. There's a sense in which something has to give that this is a regime, which is running out of answers. You got a supreme leader who's in his final years. It's not clear what the Succession looks like. I think there is now a really open question about what happens to the Islamic Republic and the protesters obviously feel that they have the regime in their sights

"Enrichment program in exchange for the lifting of many economic sanctions. As those sanctions came back into force, Iran got right back to work enriching uranium, edging ever closer to real weapons capability. In the meantime, the diplomacy hasn't gone anywhere. But after the first day of this week's negotiations, things were all smiles, and idiot, deputy secretary general of the EU's foreign service summed up the mood. And there is clearly a will of the Iranian delegation to engage in serious work and bring discipline back to life. So I feel I feel positive that we can be doing important things for the next weeks to come. There's a glimmer of hope there, but there's also still a long way to go. The first day of negotiations seemed to end on a positive note, which is actually pretty surprising. I mean, I think the mood going into these talks was pretty pessimistic. Roger mcshane is our Middle East editor. The administration of Joe Biden had thought it was close to restoring the JCPOA early this year, then that would change with the election of Abraham raisi, who's a hardliner. So, you know, I think people went into Vienna with pretty low expectations and surprisingly the first day has been rather positive. In what sense of what's what's being kicked around? Well, you're just seeing a lot of positive noises from people coming out of the top to people smiling, people saying, we've made some progress now lacuna is what that means. It's been one day of negotiations. And they're dealing with a lot of complicated stuff. I mean, you have a whole host of sanctions that America has heaped on Iran essentially cutting it off from the world economy. Iran wants those undone. And then you have the progress that Iran has made with its nuclear program. I mean, it's been doing things like testing events centrifuges hampering international inspections and most importantly increasing in stockpile of enriched uranium and well-being on the limit set in the original deal. And on top of that, it's just enriching that uranium to 60% purity. And that's a level that's usually only reached by countries that want to make bombs. So to put that on the perspective of the JCPOA, that deal was meant to keep Iran always at least a year away from what they called breakout. The point in where Iran had enough material for a bomb. Now it's somewhere between a few weeks and a few months away. And so what's actually being discussed in Vienna then just a return to the JPA as we understood it or something new altogether. Well, I mean, I think expectations are so low that America would be very happy to return to the JCPOA. Now, America is not directly involved in the talks there on the sidelines, but they're getting their message across via the Europeans. One way to look at a wrongs moves, it's sort of advancements in its nuclear program is as a way to gain leverage in these talks. And while you get some Iranian officials who say they're not averse to returning to the old deal, most are talking pretty tough, you know, they've demanded three main things for America. They wanted to admit wrongdoing in ditching the original deal. They wanted to immediately lift all sanctions on Iran. And they went to America to guarantee that any new agreement will last beyond Joe Biden's term. In other words, a future U.S. president of future Trump won't pull America out. This could all be busted. This could all be an attempt to drive a hard bargain in Vienna. But publicly Iranian officials have shown little interest in returning to the old deal or even conducting the kind of detailed negotiations that might produce a new one. So the fact that everyone walked out of the meeting today and was looking sounding very positive and, you know, that's pretty surprising. You've laid out what it is Iran would like from America who's it must be said not in the room. What is America's stance at this stage? Well, you know, the conditions laid out by Iran are impossible for America to meet. Start with the guarantee that the deal won't be ripped up by the next president. In order for that to happen, you need to turn the deal into a treaty, which would require approval of two thirds of the Senate, and that's just not going to happen. And neither is American and going to lift all of its sanctions on Iran because many of those sanctions have nothing to do with the nuclear program. They're related to Iran's sponsorship of terrorism. That's a non starter. But it sort of leaves the path forward unclear. Biden had hoped to simply sort of reenter the old deal before negotiating what he called a quote unquote longer and stronger deal. That also seems very unlikely at this point. And it's gotten to the point where America and its allies in much notably Israel. They're talking about plan B's, which is really just another word for sabotage and the tax on Iran's nuclear program. You've spoken extensively of what Iran wants and where that fits in with what America wants. What about the rest of the international community? They're being European powers, Britain, France, Germany, who are all signatories to the original deal they're working hard to get it restored, and they've tried to keep it alive all these years after America pulled out. They're really the ones doing the hard work in Vienna. Then you have China and Russia who are also seeing the Tories. They don't really have an interest in Iran gaining a nuclear weapon, but they probably don't mind watching America's squirm a bit. They have their own interest in the Middle East. Many of Iran's neighbors in the gulf. A lot of them oppose the original JCPOA. I think a lot of them have also now come around to it. But look, everyone knows that the real wild card in all this is Israel. It views Iran's nuclear program as an existential threat. And it says it's going to feel free to act no matter what happens in Vienna. For the past few years, it's been engaging in a shadow war with Iran. It's killed. It's nuclear scientists. You have Israeli officials saying they've developed weapons such as bunker busting bombs that could penetrate into their program, and then they would sort of obviate the need to rely on America to help out with any attacks. See, look, Israel is basically saying we can act, we can act alone, and we might act alone if things keep moving in the wrong direction. So the rhetoric kind of from all sides doesn't match all of those smiling faces coming out of the first day of talks. I mean, how to read what's going to happen for mean, I think before today, you would have thought that a deal was very unlikely or at least not an expensive deal. I think the best hope that a lot of people I was that some sort of interim deal could be reached, something that sort of froze Iran's nuclear program, froze its production of enriched uranium and America would ease some of its sanctions in return. And the idea was sort of you'd buy time for a broader negotiations. People sound positive today. Perhaps something more expansive is possible. But Joe Biden had hoped not only to jump back into the JCPOA but to negotiate what was often called a more for more deal. This is that longer and stronger deal. And going into Vienna, it was looking like a less for less dealers with this sort of highest hope you could have. There's also the separate question of whether the JCPOA is even worth restoring. And this is something that American officials have talked about. For one thing, parts of it expire in 2025, and the whole thing ends in 9 years time. Eventually, Iran's nuclear program will have made too many advances to safely return to the old deal, rum malley, America's chief negotiator on put it well when he says that you're not really dealing with a chronological clock.

"Worker who ends up really being a spy? It's a very unknown situation. One thing I can say is that yes, these adversarial governments do send agents and spies into Iran because you see, for example, the Israelis conduct assassinations. They conduct espionage and, you know, these kind of missions in Iran successfully. So they have to do it with the help of intelligence gathering. It could be within Iranian ranks in the government, there is probably agents within the government, but it seems like they're not catching the right ones at least not fully because these missions are conducted successfully and then you see journalists or teacher or academics, basically staying in prison while the real agents are roaming around. So it maybe they do sometimes catch agents, but they're not very successful in stopping the sabotages and assassinations that go on in the country. And that's actually something that the population part of the political elite is really local and critical about the security force is that it seems like you're holding all these people, but they're the wrong ones because we see these sabotages, terrorists attacks and assassinations continuing on Iranian soil. And what is the Iranian government say in response the United States does this to Iranians too? We have to take hostages to negotiate with the United States. Positive taking really is something non state actors do. Non state militias conduct business this way. And that's actually one reason why they're on a state is not acknowledging that these people are hostages, except for the case of the U.S. diplomats at the beginning and the hostage crisis where it was publicly acknowledged. This is very different and they try to put them through the judicial system to sort of make it look like, oh, these are held for legitimate reasons according to our law and to our national security and all of that. And let's see the United States is doing the same to our citizens when it comes to the Iranian viewpoint. So I would say people who are held in the U.S. for violation of U.S. sanctions. I wouldn't call them hostages per se, yes, they're divided the law. But the sanctions are not entirely justified. It's a foreign policy tool that the U.S. is using the maximum pressure that's used by the Trump administration. No responsible government should subsidize Iran's bloodlust. As long as Iran's menacing behavior continues sanctions will not be lifted. They will be tightened. Another Biden administration is sort of continuing that. Will the U.S. lift sanctions first in order to get Iran back to the negotiating table? No. An ordinary Iranian Americans, people like myself are basically financial behaviors are criminalized for us as Iranian Americans, that's not criminalized for a Turkish American or for a Pakistani American, let's say anybody else from the region. And it is because of that political fight between the two countries. So it's a complex issue with so many layers. But at the end of the day, the way Iranians look at that is that your sanctions are unjustified and you're holding people in jail for violating what's unjustified. And we're sort of doing the same thing and we want to exchange these people. It's not what the entire picture is. But that's definitely one argument that the Iranians are making when they allude to the prison or exchange. And it's back and forth between the two countries is now a few years into its 5th decade. Will it ever end or are we just going to hear stories like Jason's forever? I think at the end of the day, it's not only about the U.S. holding Iranians as prisoners, it's also about U.S. Iran political animosity and tension. We're going to see one form of another.

We aren't doing something to be slow and deliberate about it. We need to do more than one thing at the same time. For decades, Americans have constantly been sold new versions of the same products that have been around a long time. Sometimes centuries. A nice try is a podcast about humanity's attempts at perfection. Listen to nice try on Apple Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. The special report that we plan to bring you tonight was about domestic politics, the battle among the Democrats. But we think the crisis in Iran is more urgent right now than the campaign here at home. Some 60 Americans are now beginning their 6th day of captivity inside the U.S. embassy in Tehran. It's Friday morning there now, but throughout this night in Washington, officials will continue their search for some way to negotiate the hostages freedom. That search was not successful today. Though Jason rezaian is out now in the world talking about his experience as an Iran hostage. There's nothing particularly new about his experience. Iran has been at it a while, so we reach out to Nagar, mortazavi to find out more about this practice. I'm a journalist and political analyst and host of the Iran podcast. So Nagar, when does Iran start holding foreigners hostage as a foreign policy strategy? This really began from the 1979 revolution with all heard about the hostage crisis at the beginning of the inception of the Islamic Republic, a group of students, taking over the U.S. embassy, and it literally taking American diplomats hosted asking the United States to return the Shah of Iran. It was very publicly acknowledged by the Iranian side. It was that group of students and then later supported by the state basically. And since those times, it's a slowly evolve into a I would say manufactured judicial process. So the Iranians no longer call these people hostages. The process is no longer climbing over a wall and taking over an embassy publicly acknowledging blindfolding people parading them in front of the cameras. They put them through a judicial process and they what they call security crimes and hold them for crimes of espionage of colluding against the state, propaganda against the state, collaborating with adversary governments and to this day, it's basically continued. Iran is accused of using four prison to extract political and financial concessions from Washington. Secretary of State Antony Blinken assured the charges and the families of the three other American prisoners held by Iran that their return is a priority. There are a number of foreign nationals as well as dual nationals who they're running security forces are more paranoid about and see as the bigger threats to the country and they're essentially how that's bargaining chips. For around to take concessions from some of these Western countries or more adversarial states. Which is to say this practice didn't end with Jason's release, there still hostages being held captive in Iran right now. Why does Iran keep doing this? One layer is that the Iranian hardliners think of themselves as this weaker country when it comes to these bigger powers like the United States, like the United Kingdom, they feel like these countries are using the international system to their benefit international law to their benefit when it comes to this UK depth to Iran, the U.S. blocking Iran's assets abroad, U.S. sanctions and things like that. And they go around and use what I consider inhumane method of taking these dual nationals basically as hostages, they call them prisoners, but as hostages, to sort of compensate for what they see themselves weak. And dealing with these countries. There's another layer of paranoia added to this, there are some factions within the Iranian state actually do believe that some of these dual nationals, people like myself. I mean, I've been living in exile in fear of the security forces. I'll probably be arrested if I go back to the country. And I haven't been in a decade. They do think that these dual nationals people like myself, Jason and rossion, and NASA is already are actually spies and agents of these adversarial governments coming to the country to sort of gather intelligence or foment unrest and things like that. So you're saying there's a genuine belief on the part of the Iranian government that people like you and Jason, who, in this country, we would just call journalists over there could be spies. It's a combination. So there's the paranoia coming together with that sort of muscle flexing against these larger as they see in perilous powers. And at some point they see that it works, you know, even if they realize when they catch someone and they put them through days and hours of interrogation and they find nothing. Then they think we might as well, you know, hold this person and get some concessions from whatever other government they have a nationality over. And specifically in the case of dual nationals, people like myself, Iranian American, Iranian, Canadian, Iranian, British. These people are the ones who are bridges between these two countries. You know, Iran in the United States don't have diplomatic relations. It's very difficult for Iranians to travel to the U.S. for Americans to travel to Iran. And it's people like myself who go back and forth, they are family ties in both countries and they essentially serve as a bridge. And part of the Iranian political system, especially the more hardline factions they don't like that. They don't want to see that. Is the Iranian government ever right? Does it ever take someone who might be a journalist or a teacher or an aid.

"I lived several seasons in avian prison. And the first one was I would say the hardest one because I was in solitary confinement. I spent 7 weeks in solitary in a cell that was about four feet by 8 feet with fluorescent lighting on 24 hours a day. Only being taken out to be interrogated or for 20 minutes of blindfolded, fresh air, every afternoon. So that's not a very good existence. There's nothing to while away the time you're not given books, you're not given the opportunity to communicate with anybody. So you're really trapped with your thoughts. So that was incredibly hard and it was during that time that I really started to think of myself, okay, if you're going to get through this, you need to take it easy on yourself and be as kind and friendly to yourself as possible. So I spend as much time as I could kind of recounting positive memories and good things that had happened in the past. And planning for the future. Because it's very easy to go down rabbit holes that are scary, distressing, and you know, you can cause yourself a lot of torment if you're not careful. I made a commitment to try and find something to laugh about every day. And I think about things that I did when I was a kid and think about sweet memories with my wife and family vacations that had taken with my folks and baseball games that I had gone to and trips that I had taken and everything else that you can fill your time with. Fortunately, after 49 days, I was given the opportunity to come out of solitary confinement. I didn't know why. And they put me in a larger cell, but that had a courtyard connected to it, which allowed me the opportunity to be out of doors for the daylight hours. And Sean, I got to tell you. I mean, if you've been in solitary confinement for an afternoon, you know, if all of a sudden you're let out of solitary confinement and given the opportunity to spend time under the blue sky, even if there are massive brick walls that are topped in barbed wire surrounding you, it is a major step up. And it kind of allows me to come out of this phase of feeling like a caged animal and feel more like just a cage person. And gave me an opportunity to think about things in a more constructive ways. And their party line is that you're not really a journalist, but that you're a spy. Do they ever produce any proof? I clicked on something that I shouldn't have. And they were able to access my email. So they were living in my Gmail account for a few days before my arrest. So that meant that they were rifling through things and printing emails out and they were reading emails in the language that was not their native one and seizing on things that seemed suspicious. So in one email, for example, I had apologized to somebody for going radio silent. And you know, the email print out comes back to me with that section highlighted in green. Why did you go radio silent? Radio silence is only a term that spies use. What the fuck are you talking about? At the time, and now in retrospect, you know, I didn't do anything wrong to get myself into the situation. They were going to concoct whatever they wanted to out of whatever they could. And it would all stick in their shitty, judicial system, but in the court of public opinion and in the real world, nobody was buying it. And I guess this has gone on forever, but maybe lucky for you, there's these nuclear talks going on between the Obama administration and Iran and they strike a deal arrange for a prisoner swap and you're finally released after 544 days. How does that feel? The challenges of new freedom are unique and strange and nothing that someone can be prepared for, especially when you're ordeal has been so highly publicized. And politicized. I'm happy they're coming home. My problem is this. Number one, they should never have been hostages in the first place. None of them did anything wrong. And number two, I think that Iran very deliberately seized them because they know that under a Barack Obama, you can trade Americans for people you want back. So, you know, I came out to a lot of fanfare among my colleagues in the media, but there were all sorts of people in Washington who hated this deal. People will die. Americans will die Israelis will die Europeans will die. Let's rise up and tell every elected official in Washington. Stop this deal. And would have like nothing more than to see no deal between the U.S. and Iran. Which, oh, by the way, if there was no deal, I might still be sitting in prison now, almost 6 years later. So, you know, it's very jarring to come back to that and to live in Washington, D.C. now for the first time in my life. As someone who is closely associated with a very contentious political issue. And now that you're back in the states in D.C. specifically, I suppose, about what exactly happened to you about how you ended up imprisoned for more than a year? So I had a lot of conversations with people in the administration at the time. A lot of doors were open to me. And I pushed those doors open and sat down and asked a lot of questions. And one of the things that officials in the Obama administration kept saying to me was Jason, you know, we deal with Americans who were wrongly detained in different countries. All the time, this case, your case was particularly egregious. We knew that there was nothing about your work or your presence in Iran that was in any way. Dangerous to Iran's national security, you were very upfront about the work that you were doing, and this was a clear cut case of an American being taken hostage as leverage against us. They would say to me sometimes that, you know, had you actually been a spy, it would be really less complicated for us to deal with it. We do this all the time in different parts of the world. We trade people back and forth pretty regularly. But when it comes down to trying to free innocent Americans from other countries in exchange for people who have broken laws in the United States, oftentimes who are convicted felons, it gets kind of complicated..

"Goal of eliminating israel that is a factor within the nuclear discussions as well the. Us sunday joe biden is to dissuade around from doing so by by freeing up billions of dollars which is being frozen or or people that are put under sanctions and giving them incentive not to continue with a nuclear enrichment program or an iranian enrichment program and to instead focus on building tenants of the economy. It's it's a very big gamble. According to the israelis and it's a fundamental point of difference between both allies. Who do see tackling this in very different ways. So if you look at these incidents on the sea mysterious sabotage of vessels at tanka going up in flames and sinking hijackings drone attacks. Do you think they're partly a kind of sabre-rattling by both iran and israel to try and affect the talks. I think very much that there's some saber rattling going on in this negotiating strategy that both sides do have and the iranians are holding out for a as good a deal as they can possibly get But the fact remains they came for this deal. They do want it to happen. At the very highest levels of the administration through their senior officials and through their proxies in the region it is known as fact that iranians do want to conclude something with the americans and they think they can probably get that done. Well the consequences now in a brit has died. What does it mean for those huge tankers now trying to sat around the gulf with these targets on them. What is a very dangerous time for or freighters on the waters of the region. There is no question that tensions are as high as i have been in the last two and a half years and the huskies drama doesn't look like dying down at any point soon they will likely be some sort of retaliation from the israelis in coming days or weeks and i can't see it stopping there. It would be very much iranians. Take ned turn to ensure that. I don't look weak until humiliated and end to strike back. So what you're saying is that the shadow will will continue to heat up and we can expect a lot more of this. The shutter war is by no means. Either it will continue on the waters of the red sea. The mediterranean the indian ocean and the arabian gulf many months. If not years to come as ever in brinkmanship such as this there is the danger of miscalculation in it does appear that we are not too far away from such a miscalculation taking place and a more broader conflict of description. Not necessarily war breaking out. Martin thank you very much. you're welcome..

They're being mysterious explosions at nuclear sites around the country. Iran is blaming israel for an apparent attack on an underground nuclear facility officials in iran. Say the attack set off a fire and a possible minor explosion. None of this as you would imagine has played well inside iran itself where a large number of iranian see what has been happening as a direct attack on iranian sovereignty. They see themselves as having the equal rights as anyone else in the region to build nuclear capacity so the iranian response to these repeated israeli attacks for many years. Now it certainly being one of if you can do it to us we can do it to you. There's a very strong resentment within iranian society that israel has or feels that has caught blanche to do what it does regime forget it votes raining. Authorities have described the incident as an act of nuclear terrorism. Vowing retaliation Saab role in israel very similar. Feelings they do believe largely the population has been conditioned to believe that iran poses an existential threat to the country. Are you at war with iran. They're at war with us. We never saw any enmity with iran. They openly declared that their goal is to anonymous every and adding to the sense of instability is the fact that both iran and israel have installed new leaders. Let's concentrate on one i. it's new. President is ibrahim racy. He only took office last week. Razi barrow yet. If what can you tell us about him. Abraham racy is a hardliner. He is somebody who was personally chosen by grand ayatollah ali hominy. He is somebody who was seen as following and or prosecuting the vision of the islamic revolution. He's being a supporter of the revolution regards. Throughout recent decades. He was a judicial official for several years in which crackdowns on protests or directed under his watch as were convictions. And in some cases executions he really is seen to be alley hamas man in many ways and it does seem as though the message that iran is sending in. Electing him or nominating him is that he will be an unflinching face. Towards the worst thing you prime minister of israel neftali bennett has chaired his first cabinet meeting and has promised to hail the country's rifts and then on the other side we have neftali bennett. He came into power in israel in june. What's his position on iran. Naftali bennett is a hardliner. In iran question he was a protege. Of benjamin netanyahu there is very little distance or daylight between the views towards iran of of both men this weekend. Iran chose the new president ibrahim ali of all the people. That guy could have chosen. He chose the hangman of tehran. The men infamous among iranians. They grew up believing that iran is the number one threat that they face in the time. At least bennett is very much a security hawk so he will continue more or less the policies visiting netanyahu towards iran. So a risky thing for both racy and bennett. They'll try to consolidate their respective domestic positions by escalating. These attacks. there is that chance of of of an escalation getting out of control and before you not rather than having a an attritional war or shadow war. You have something even more dangerous. Although it's really not racist call this would be alley as call if he was looking to to escalate something against the israelis. And he's he's he's a man who knows his co. quite well he's often said that he doesn't want to be drawn into something which is more direct and confrontational and and openly. So he he would calculate that the balance of military power is not with him that fighting wars in foreign lands through proxies attrition easily and patiently is a better way to tackle such anniversary.

"Welcome to episode four and the final installment of the foreign desks summit series in which we examine historical events as the foreign desk might have covered them at the time working. Only from the information which would have been available to us this week. We go back to nineteen seventy nine and the beginnings of the iran hostage crisis remaining ovide journalist and author of city of lies love sex death and the search for truth in tehran. Plays monaco's correspondent in the iranian capital. Holly dogmas senior fellow at the atlantic council and curator of the iran est newsletter plays an analyst based in tehran volley nasa former state department advisor and professor of middle east studies at johns hopkins. University plays a foreign policy expert based in washington. Dc and lou lukens former us ambassador to senegal and guinea-bissau now senior partner at cigna global advises plays a foreign policy expert based in london in al parallel universe. This broadcasts on saturday november tenth nineteen seventy-nine report last sunday. November fourth protesters climbed over the walls of the us embassy compound in tehran. The mob who stormed the building appear to be adherence of the ayatollah ruhollah khomeini the hardline. Shia cleric who returned to iran in february after years in exile shortly after iran's previous ruler. Sean muhammed resume. Pahlavi fled the country after a month of tumult as we go to air. Dozens of people are being held hostage including perhaps sixty or so american citizens the captors demanding the return of the shah presently undergoing medical treatment in the united states to face revolutionary justice. The seizure of the embassy has already had seismic effects on iran's domestic politics prime minister mehdi bazaga appointed by the taller from any has resigned in apparent protest at the overrunning. The embassy along with his cabinet there is no longer any doubt that khomeini is seeking to remake iran in his own folding image bay strident anti-americanism was already a feature of khomeini's sent islamic republic. But this week's events already heady raising the stakes. The taking of an embassy and the kidnapping of diplomats is certainly a provocation arguably an active war. Us president jimmy carter finds a gauntlet at his feet. Where is the ayatollah khomeini going with this. What are president. Carter's options and how why. And when did relations between the united states and iran deteriorate to this perilous point. This is the foreign desk. It's an extraordinary scene now. They're being crowded protesters turning every day. Lots of banners outside the embassy graffiti on the wolf down with the usa. And you can see some of the world of blackened from when the demonstrators theft by two parts of the compound. There's a lot of anger at the united states. And i think it's impossible to say at this point whether this will be a couple of event or if it will last longer you're listening to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller for an update first of all on the latest from tehran. I'm joined by our reporter on. The scene remained remain described forest. If you will the scene around the embassy compound right now. What is the atmosphere like on the ground and extraordinarily seen here. Now they're crowded. Protracted turning every day look outside the embassy graffiti on the down with the usa and you can see some of the wolves of blackened from when the demonstrators fired part. The compound journalists. Count out here because the hostage-takers you know been giving press conferences. Now compounded felt is being heavily guarded by armed students to make sure no can escape them. Nobody can get in can get out and the young religious men who supported ayatollah khomeini. Now this began with these demonstrators. We saw last sunday november. The fourth do you get the sense that the seizure of the embassy was a spontaneous act by people caught up in the moment or was this something that seemed to have been quite carefully. Planned in advance may have looked contained so ayatollah khomeini cooled on his supporters to attack. Us and the protesters jiffy turned up here at the us embassy but at the situation being progressing and getting more information it seems that this was carefully orchestrated and well planned now. We're hearing that three islamic leftist student leaders up behind this. I've been hearing that. No older students were politics. Agreed with the plan but they went along anyway now. One young man in particular was against this plan. His name is mahmoud madina now. He's a striking young man. Andrew for strident conservatism. He wanted the students to take over the embassy of the soviet union. How is it actually possible for any amount of people to over on the embassy which one assume would be fairly well-guarded they would be. Us marines on the premises. And of course. This isn't the first time that demonstrators of had a pulp at the us embassy. There was a seizure of very brief one earlier this year right now. The nine months ago on february the fourteenth why after the top topple the embassy was pretty violently attacked by crowds. They ransacked the building. Smashed equipment for stuff to lie on the floor gunpoint. One iranian embassy employee was killed. He west marine and three other. Americans were wounded now. This could be why the demonstrators managed to take control of the embassy so easily this time because the us marines and a god who were there was no way of fighting back but they should have been warning. Sign the protestors spray the embassy building gunfire and all the us marines could do with five with birch or even then the us ambassador. William sullivan ordered the marines to put down their weapons now. It does seem that the seizure of the us embassy mostly unarmed protesters say quickly and with such ease but we know light last time that the gods did try to defend the compound with tear gas. Not because they're not allowed to use firearms now. The students have released some the hostages including one arabian interpreted. Who's been speaking to journalists. She says the demonstrators just walked into the compound this time and nobody stopped them now. She says the stoffel taken to a maximum security floor and giving gas mask around two hours later. Students stormed the building and the marine. Let them in the room weather star. Were cowering you were saying earlier. That the students who took the embassy or at least they representatives have been giving press conferences. How clear they bean about what they want. And what their intentions are now. Very very demanding. The extradition of show one of the people at the embassy staff would be held until the us government with tons the shot to iran to stand trial now. The students request is not matt. They will take measures against the hostages in lima public opinion. Now not only not seem to fear. America's response seem incredibly emboldened and brazen the key figure lurking behind this of course is the ayatollah khomeini and we will be discussing him more later in the show. But is it your sense that he is directing this or following it because there does seem quite clear split in that he is a man of several generations ahead of the revolutionaries you are describing. They genuinely following him.

Attack was the worst anti-semitic attack since the end of the shore. As de chabad table will come together remembering the victims and demanding justice after twenty seven years. Traffic's not in serb. Not one single person sits in britain for this horrible attack even the members of La the shiites slamming terrorist group bathing lebanon and sponsored by iran has seen found responsible for the attack by the argentine justice. No one of them was brought to justice. Armenia one of agencies international partners revealed its building after the bombing and it's dark playing critical social mission in the argentine jewish community but the relatives of the victims understood by themselves. Still trying to rebuild them live. How can you explain stephania. Who is celebrating tenth birthday one day before the attack that nobody cares do bring Or dot lewis. Who was more than that day. Can you convey cloudy idea that no argentine government. After twenty seven years. They are to go the extra mile to bring justice for their sisters marta. How can you tell rosa. who's five year. Old sounds of theon was during the attack that there is nobody responsible for loss turning seven years after the attack justice. Delay each other than i. I'm very proud that agency plays a central in keeping the memory of the amir bake alive and still the mandate jobs. Thank you so much one. I find it. Poignant that this year's anniversary falls on tissue above the saddest day on the jewish calendar a day of mourning jewish tradition calls on us too fast and reflect on the destruction of temples in jerusalem but also the pogroms the terrorist attacks the holocaust the multitude of tragic mile markers that punctuate jewish his the attack on a mea being one of them earlier. This week i spoke to a group of students about why i call myself. Jewish i did so alongside someone who is modern or doctor who was raised in a strict orthodox home who still keeps kosher observes the sabbath and even cancelled a haircut this week because it fell within the nine days leading up to tishkov as i've said many times here i'm ju- in progress and i have a lot of progress still to make. I was not raised. Jewish i'm hardly observant now. My family has barely begun. She'll shopping are pairing was intended to demonstrate for the students the myriad ways of being jewish the fluid nature of jewish culture and faith and the age old debate of r we a religion. Are we a people what are wait. I explained that no matter how much progress i have yet to make. Being jewish is an inescapable part of who i am. It's woven into my family narrative. I was raised on stories about pogroms in eastern europe. The great uncle who was disowned for not marrying a jewish woman. My grandfather's painstaking search for a rabbi to marry my parents on a promise that my father would eventually convert and he did several years later. But these with the stories that led my parents to resent organized religion. As a result i entered the field of religion reporting a blank slate infinitely curious and personally prepared to land wherever i found comfort and meaning. Curiously i found the stories. I did on jewish subjects always the most fulfilling and when the rare opportunity came along to immerse myself in a religious tradition. I chose jewish rituals. Took a dip and mikva for the high holidays. I observed the sabbath or at least tried to. It became so clear that i had what religion scholar vanessa. Oaks has called jewish sensibilities principles and values that help us understand how judaism defines or shapes our lives. They include a desire to repair the world to be a mench to keep the peace and to remember our ancestors we also make distinctions in other words. We take our calendars very seriously. She says which might explain. Why seemingly out of the blue. I've been grieving the loss of family and friendships the loss of my twenty. Something figure the loss of every opportunity missed the loss of sanity during the pandemic as well as the loss of life. Is it a coincidence that these have been the days leading up to tishkov. I've concluded not at all. My jewish sensibility is reminding me that. Even in the middle of sunny july now is the time to wallow. Oaks also talks about tissue via the belief that we can turn things around build on our sadness and make changes for the better. We are works in progress. She said jews in progress. If you will and transformation is always possible so at archambault table and on tishkov i will sit with my sadness and figure out how to build on it. I will remember. Lives lost both throughout jewish history and in my own family. I will fast not just. Because that's how you reclaim your twenty-something figure but because it's a gift offered to me by jewish tradition my jewish tradition and that's what we'll be talking about at our shabat table shabat shalom shabat shalom.

"This week. Federal prosecutors revealed that iranian american journalists must see alina jihad who has boldly criticized. The iranian regime was the target of an attempted kidnapping orchestrated by an iranian intelligence network since fleeing the islamic republic in two thousand nine alina. Jihad has received numerous threats. Most recently twitter allowed a social media campaign calling for her abduction but alina jaw did not see the campaign as empty rhetoric in recent years iran executed the founder of an opposition channel on telegram after luring him to iraq to arrest him. Another dissident and california was kidnapped as he was passing through dubai on to india. Alina shot recently sat down with ajc managing director of europe. Simone rodin akin to talk about her activism and the price. She has paid for it. Simone is with us now to share some of the highlights simone. Welcome hi yeah. Thank you very much for having me. Why did you invite must see alina. Shot for conversation in the first place. I have followed my seat. For a very long. I i have a i lord her my stealthy freedom initiative where she basically try to give voice to in women than of course i've followed the white her wide wednesdays initiative so basically i've fallen her for quite weiland then we interact on social media. We started to You know re tweet each other. Because i think we sort of see that we are We share the same kind of values that vision and And yeah and that's how it happened. So we've we've become virtual friends. I hope one day soon we will be able to meet the person And become actual trends. You mentioned stealthy freedom which is muskie's campaign against compulsory zhob in iran the regime forcing women to wear he job. But it's not just about women who don't wanna wear the traditional muslim headscarf. Is it yes. It's a very good question. My you're absolutely right. It's not just about the heat job. it is about the first part of it. it's compulsory it's about the fact that the iran religious dictatorship actually just uses. Islam is new or islam or their version of islam to oppress the people of the wrong to oppress in particular women of iran and so the job just becomes a symbol of it. The reality is that it's not just the fact that women have to wear that he up in the streets. It's also the fact that they do anything they con- don's they go to a stadium. They can't go to a mixed party. They conned leave the country without the authorization of their husbands so they are basically seen regarded as second class citizens. And i would even go a step further. The reality is why women are the symbol of this oppression. The reality is that human rights in general. Anyone who opposes the iranian regime is basically castigated put in prison lashed or you know sometimes even more skills. Here's what must be had to say. So they were trying to stop women from practicing their civil disobedience but what happened women with his job this time sending me video and saying that we're ready to go to prison for ten years but we're not going to keep silent this time. They said not to force the job not his stomach republic. The government found out that they cannot keep these people. Silence what they did. They went after my family. They interrogated my seventeen year old mother. They actually ask our to stop shutting her. Love with me my mom. Where's hitch all. She has nothing to do with my campaign with our campaign but she's being like interrogated to not just calling me and they went after my sister. They brought my sister on iranian national. Tv to disown me public and then they arrested my brother. They actually my brother. Eight years prison sentence just because of being my brother so and i had to make a decision whether because of my family silence of keep going so i look to those in prison even from prison. They sent message to outside the ward saying that we don't regrets we are not you know the victim of this government. We are the warriors. And we're gonna keep going. I said to myself. I have a big finding the mothers who lost a beloved one. The mothers whose children got killed in iran protests sending videos to me. So what should i do saying that because of my brother because of my mom i'm gonna be silent. The movement is there but you want beyond compulsive jobs now compulsory job as i always say it's the main pillar of a religious dictatorship. Iran recently had elections which you called so-called elections. Why did you described in that way. Yes you're absolutely right. I called it a so-called alexa much. Funnier our a little bit more cynic and she called the selection. There reason why she did so and why. I call it. So-called alexis because very clearly the president abraham racing was pre selected. There is no democratic process in iran. Going on the candidates who can participate at election process are already pre selected and as we have seen in the past when ever even candidates who were so called moderates they were not chosen by the iranian regime and whenever iranians demonstrates in the pre in the process after the elections they will just be repressed as you will probably remember when the green revolution happened in iran and people try to express their frustration with the iranian regime. There were killed and tortured in the streets of iran. So this is why must see and myself. Don't speak of this as an election process but rather of the selection process. You mentioned the nuclear deal. Why should the western world care about president rice election..

"That israelis would love for on to do something that would shift the discussion away from the nuclear talks to iran's behavior and would in fact get it in the united states into a direct confrontation with your off so they don't wanna play israel's game but i guess there is a call for retaliation from within iran that even the general iranian public is angry at the impunity with which israel operates in iran. But it's more important for iran to create deterrence against israel that unless the israelis wadi about some kind of backlash that they will just continue doing this unimpeded savelli. Let's move a little bit to the issue of the talks with the united states and the vienna coversation wrapped up. Recently with movie critics would call it mixed reviews. So what's your assessment of the meeting and its potential outcome but the meeting was it was an important breaks because it hadn't been any meeting at whatsoever since president biden took office. This was the first meeting. But i would say that progress was very slow so there were to sort of discussions that happened in vienna in tandem. One one was on what iran needs to do in order to get back into full compliance. And what is it that the united states needs to get get back into compliance and as what set of sanctions that it does it have to lift and the iranians believed that all trump era sanctions were put on iran. In bad faith. Iran was in full compliance according to international atomic energy january twenty seventeen and trump moved out of the deal and with sanctions on iran. So they basically mean full. American compliance means going back through twenty seventy but the. Us is reluctant to do that. Because it wants iran to exceed to expanding the deland be willing to negotiate on other issues and secondly as a poison pill that the trump administration multi designated sanctions. So let's say an iranian ship will be designated under the nuclear the for not selling oil..

This is just the latest incident that further heighten tensions between the two countries in recent years. They've been engaged in shadow conflict across the middle east. Iran's responses to israeli strikes though have been limited so far but those attacks are becoming more frequent from every few months. Now there every few days and with targets getting more strategic and developed secrecy. Pretty much gone. Things could quickly change.
