IRAN EXCEEDS PERMISSIBLE LIMIT FOR ENRICHED URANIUM: The International Atomic Energy Agency said its inspectors had verified that Iran has breached the 300 kg. limit on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium set under the 2015 nuclear deal. The UK and Germany have called on Iran to reverse its decision, while President Trump warned that the country was "playing with fire." Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Mon. 1 July 2019, "Our next step will be enriching uranium beyond the 3.67% allowed under the deal. The Europeans have failed to fulfill their promises of protecting Iran's interests under the agreement." Meanwhile, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu also on Monday called "on all European countries to stand behind their commitments. You committed to acting the moment Iran violates the nuclear agreement, you committed to activating the mechanism for automatic sanctions that was set in the Security Council." (Reuters)
NETANYAHU: IRAN VIOLATING DEAL IN ORDER TO BLACKMAIL THE WORLD: PM Netanyahu on Tue. 2 July 2019 accused Iran of breaching the nuclear deal in order to "blackmail" the international community into relieving economic pressure on the Islamic Republic. Speaking in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said, "This week Iran openly violated the nuclear deal by increasing the stockpile of enriched uranium to beyond that allowed under the deal. They're hoping that by violating the deal it will be able to blackmail the world into making concessions and reducing the economic pressure on it," he added. "We should do the exact opposite. Now is the time to increase the pressure. Now is the time to stand firm," said Netanyahu. His comments come a day after Iran said it had exceeded a limit on its enriched uranium reserves set under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. USA President Donald Trump, responding to Iran’s announcement, warned that the Islamic Republic is “playing with fire”. Iran says it no longer feels bound by certain limits in the agreement due to the crippling sanctions re-imposed by the United States after Washington pulled out of the accord in May 2018. An Iranian source said that European countries had offered too little to persuade Tehran to back off from its plans to breach limits imposed by the deal. (Arutz-7)
NETANYAHU: 'MORE PROOF OF IRAN'S NUCLEAR LIES TO COME SOON': More facts will soon be provided to prove that Iran has been lying “all the time” about its nuclear development program, PM Netanyahu said on Mon. 1 July 2019. His comment came shortly after Tehran confirmed that it had gone beyond the 300 kilograms of low-enriched uranium allowed under the 2015 nuclear deal. Netanyahu, speaking at a ceremony honoring outstanding reserve soldiers at Beit Hanasi, said that when Israel exposed Iran's nuclear archives in 2018, “we proved that the entire nuclear agreement with Iran is based on one big lie. Now even Iran admits it. Soon there will be more proof that Iran has lied all the time. Iran, Netanyahu said, “is making a significant step towards the production of nuclear weapons. I say it again, Israel will not let Iran develop nuclear weapons”. Netanyahu called on the European countries to fulfill their commitments under the nuclear agreement to snapback sanctions against Iran once it violates the nuclear agreement. “Do it, just do it,” he urged.

IRANIAN LAWMAKER: ‘IF USA ATTACKS, ISRAEL WILL BE DESTROYED IN HALF AN HOUR’:A senior Iranian parliamentarian threatened on Mon. 1 July 2019 that Israel will be destroyed in half an hour if the United States attacks Iran, the Iranian Mehr news agency reported. Mojtaba Zonnour, Chairman of Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, made the remarks in an interview with the Al-Alam TV network. “If the USA attacks us, only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan,” he declared. Zonnour said that USA President Trump’s claim that he stopped a retaliatory military strike on Iran 10 minutes before it was set to start was a “political bluff. If the Americans had predicted their attack would be successful, they would not have canceled it and it would definitely have happened,” said the Iranian lawmaker, who added that the USA president’s advisors could see the failure of the attack. Zonnour further claimed that Iran’s power has created deterrence, adding that all 36 USA military bases in the region are under Iran’s surveillance. He described Trump as a businessman who only cares about money and who is not a man of war. (INN)Iran, with its support of global terrorism, weapons’ proliferation, its attempt to establish a military foothold in Syria, its unrelenting hateful tirades against Israel and its nuclear agreement violations, is heading towards a major confrontation with the international community. Western powers and Arab nations in the Middle East are growing weary of Iran’s hypocrisy, deceit, and continued threats. Pray according to scripture: “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.” Isa. 41: 11-12
UK'S HUNT SAYS IF IRAN BREAKS NUCLEAR DEAL WE ARE OUT AS WELL: If Iran breaks the nuclear deal then Britain is out of it as well, British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said on Mon. 1 July 2019 after Tehran said it had amassed more low-enriched uranium than permitted under its 2015 agreement with major powers. Hunt, one of two contenders to replace Theresa May as the prime minister told reporters that Britain still supported the deal. "We want to preserve that deal because we don’t want Iran to have nuclear weapons but if Iran breaks that deal then we are out of it as well," he said. Iran's move was its first major step in violation of the deal since the United States pulled out of it more than a year ago. (J. Post) Pray that Jeremy Hunt will keep his word and influence other European politicians and governments to stop supporting the Islamic Republic’s lies, arrogance, and its growing global menace.
BUSINESSMAN WHO ATTENDED BAHRAIN ECONOMIC WORKSHOP: “I’M AFRAID FOR MY LIFE”: Ashraf Ghanem, 45, owner of a furniture company in Hebron and one of 13 Palestinian businessmen who attended last week's economic conference in Bahrain, said this week that he's been forced to flee his home after Palestinian Authority security officers tried to arrest him. "I'm afraid for my life. I can't go back to my home," he said in an interview. I pay about NIS 20,000 in income taxes each month to the Palestinian Authority. Now they want to kill me just because I went to an economic conference. What has the Palestinian Authority done for the residents of Hebron? All the projects you see in Hebron are funded by the international community. Where does the money go? Where are the billions of dollars that the Palestinian Authority received in order to help the Palestinians? I'm not a traitor, and I'm not a collaborator with Israel. I'm a businessman who wants to help his people and boost the Palestinian economy and because of that I'm now being punished and forced to live in hiding." (J. Post) Pray for the safety of Ashraf Ghanem and others like him who have taken strong stands for a better hope for the Palestinians.
