US Conservative pundit blasts Trump’s Iran obsession as tensions escalate

Conservative American pundit Ann Coulter has blasted President Donald Trump for treating Iran as an existential threat to the United States.

    She said in 1986, when US farmers demanded a special amnesty for farm workers, the Agricultural Amnesty Act allowed in two of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers. The Act allowing in illegal immigrants is far more dangerous than Iran, Coulter added.

    “Guest [farm] workers are more of a threat to our national security than Iran is. Leave aside the tens of thousands of Americans killed every year by Mexican heroin, illegal alien drunk drivers and straight-up murderers, whom the government refuses to count.”

    French daily, Le Figaro, not known as a conspiracy organ, revealed that the American president had “hired an Israeli agency to discredit the agreement on the Iranian nuclear deal”.

    Quoted by the same newspaper, Jack Straw, former British Foreign Minister, confirmed that these “extraordinary and appalling methods show the level of desperation of Trump and Netanyahu to discredit the [Iranian nuclear] agreement”.

    Israeli newspaper Haaretz also reported that Israeli intelligence company Black Cube was hired  to uncover correspondence regarding Iranian nuclear issues that might hurt supporters of the deal.

    The decision by Trump to pull out of the JCPAO agreement has ended the illusion of WOT, the so-called War on Terror, or clash of civilizations supposedly opposing the Muslim East and Christian West.

    The countries that welcomed the American withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, were mostly Muslim, except Israel. Riyadh remains the main financial, diplomatic, and religious sponsor of Islamist terrorism, Nicolas Gauthier, noted in Boulevard Voltaire.

    Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday its support for Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the 2015 deal in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency. Bahrain and the UAE also voiced support for Trump.

    On Tuesday, just as Trump announced his breaking of the nuclear deal, Israel launched another strike on what it claimed were Iranian missiles in Syria targeted at Israel. The strike hit a Syrian army depot. Fifteen soldiers, some of them allegedly Iranians, were killed.

    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, 28 Israeli F-15 and F-16 fighter jets carried out the strikes, with more than 60 air-to-ground missiles fired at Syrian army positions, half of them being downed.

    The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday stating that Israel was supporting terrorist groups in Syria.

    “Israeli reckless action in this instance only helped [Daesh] and other terrorist groups in Syria. There is, indeed, enough evidence of the Israeli support to these terrorist groups… and this incident clearly demonstrates their destructive policy in assisting those groups for the purpose destabilizing the region,” Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo wrote.

    Iran denounced the Israeli attacks on Syria. “The Islamic Republic of Iran preserves its right to self-defense in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and calls upon the Security Council to uphold its responsibilities by condemning acts of aggression and asking the Israeli regime to stop its dangerous and constant adventurism and provoking behaviors which are threatening the regional peace and security,” Khoshroo added.

    An emotional French Economy Minister Bruno le Maire meanwhile told French radio Europe1: “Do we want to be vassals who obey decisions taken by the United States while clinging to the hem of their trousers?”

    He added: “Do we want the United States to be the economic policeman of the planet? Or do we Europeans say that we have economic interests, we want to continue to trade with Iran as part of a strategic agreement?” He urged all European states “to open their eyes”.

    François Nicoullaud, former French ambassador to Tehran, said an interview granted to French weekly Le Point last Tuesday however: “The Europeans have always been quite timid and aligned themselves with the Americans. […] If Donald Trump gets too hard on the European wallet, there could be a wind of revolt. But one thing is certain, the Europeans will not tussle with the United States, just for Iran’s beautiful eyes.”
