Russia Today, May 07 2019:… The Mossad doesn’t have the most trustworthy record when it comes to intelligence on Iran. It was likely the Mossad who, in 2004, passed fabricated documents to Iranian opposition group the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) which falsely portrayed Iran’s civilian nuclear energy program.

US acted on vague Mossad tip-off when it sent strike group to Middle East – report
Mossad MEK Iran tip-off not trustworthy
At an April 15 meeting in Washington, Israeli National Security Council chief Meir Ben-Shabbat passed along a warning to US National Security Advisor John Bolton, senior Israeli officials told Axios. The information Bolton received was left vague: the attack could hit a US target in the Persian Gulf, or maybe Saudi Arabia, or maybe the UAE.
“It is still unclear to us what the Iranians are trying to do and how they are planning to do it,” one of the senior officials said, but added it was “clear” that an unspecified event would take place sometime in the future, which would have unstated consequences.
The Axios report was corroborated by a separate report from Israel’s channel 13 journalist Barak Ravid, who claimed that Israel had handed over information to the US about an alleged Iranian plot to target US interests in the Gulf.
However elusive the bait, Washington eagerly dashed to bite, deploying the USS ‘Abraham Lincoln’ carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East, in a maneuver that just happens to play right into Israel’s hands.
Under the Trump administration, the US has been parroting Israel’s hardline policies towards Iran, the Jewish state’s regional archrival, first withdrawing from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal and then hitting Tehran with fresh rounds of sanctions. Last month, Washington went as far as to formally designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a “terrorist organization.” Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu laid bare his relationship with US President Donald Trump, saying the terrorist listing was done at Netanyahu’s “request.”
Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan did not specify from where he received the valuable intelligence, tweeting only that the deployment of the strike group “represents a prudent repositioning of assets in response to indications of a credible threat by Iranian regime forces.”
The Mossad doesn’t have the most trustworthy record when it comes to intelligence on Iran. It was likely the Mossad who, in 2004, passed fabricated documents to Iranian opposition group the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) which falsely portrayed Iran’s civilian nuclear energy program.
World catching on Bolton’s warmongering
Press TV, May 01 2019:… Bolton had been promoting the notorious and deadly anti-Iran terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK, Rajavi cult) as “viable opposition” and an alternative to the establishment in the Islamic Republic. Zarif also attached another image captured from a profile published by The New Yorker on Monday that detailed Bolton’s idiosyncrasies, including by citing a former senior advisor to the US administration’s remarks that “John wants to bomb everyone.”
1- Zarif: World catching on to Bolton’s chronic warmongering
(Bolton warmongering MEK Iran)
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif highlights again how the US National Security Advisor John Bolton has been feverishly trying to push Washington towards war with Iran.
Tweeting on Tuesday, Zarif wrote, “Today, the world’s catching on to Amb. John Bolton’s chronic warmongering.”
The top diplomat cited many evidenced revelations across the US media and elsewhere to exemplify his remarks.
Today the world's catching on to @AmbJohnBolton’s chronic warmongering. But Iranians didn’t need to read a 10,000 word @NewYorker profile to be convinced: we've seen him shill for a cult terror group, and—along with his #B_Team accomplices—target Iranians with #EconomicTerrorism. pic.twitter.com/8n0UHyXOyq

Zarif also attached another image captured from a profile published by The New Yorker on Monday that detailed Bolton’s idiosyncrasies, including by citing a former senior advisor to the US administration’s remarks that “John wants to bomb everyone.”
“But Iranians didn’t need to read a 10,000-word New Yorker profile to be convinced,” Zarif chided.
“We’ve seen him (Bolton) shill for a cult terror group,” he tweeted. The Iranian foreign minister was referring to evidence showing how Bolton had received a $40,000 “speaking fee” to address the MKO’s annual gathering in Paris.
“…and—along with his B-Team accomplices—target Iranians with Economic Terrorism,” he added.
Zarif was echoing remarks he had made to Fox News on Sunday, in which he identified the B-Team as Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The US has been pursuing a policy of “maximum pressure” against Iran under US President Donald Trump, which has Bolton as its top security aide. The policy has seen Washington reinstating draconian economic sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic.
Washington has been enlisting the assistance of its regional allies in implementing the policy. Recently, it said that it would target every country potentially buying Iran’s oil as of May 2 with “secondary sanctions.”
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates immediately reported that they would be making up for potential shortages of the Iranian crude.
2- B-team targeting Iranians with economic terror, war: Iran FM
(Bolton warmongering MEK Iran)
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has slammed contradictory approaches pursued by US National Security Adviser John Bolton and what he calls “the B-Team,” saying they are targeting the Iranian nation with “economic terrorism.”
“While @AmbJohnBolton and the #B_Team say the Iranian people ‘deserve better’, they’ve admitted to targeting them with #EconomicTerrorism,” Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account on Sunday.

The hawkish “B-team” is comprised of US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Speaking in a question-and-answer session at the Asia Society in New York on Wednesday, the Iranian foreign minister said the “B-team” is trying “to push Iran to take action” as a pretext for “crazy” and “adventurous” US actions.
“President Trump has a plan, but he’s being lured into not a plan but a trap,” Zarif said, adding, “It will cost another $7 trillion and even a greater disaster.”
Also in an interview recorded on Friday, which was aired on Fox News on Sunday, the Iranian foreign minister said all measures adopted by the administration of President Trump in dealing with Iran conveyed a message that “the United States is not reliable.”
“Maybe he [Trump] believes in America first, but America cannot be first in a globally insecure environment,” Zarif told the “FOX NEWS SUNDAY”.
“We all need to work together in a global environment that is safe and you can only live in a safe global environment if you respect yourself by respecting your signature,” he added.
He once again emphasized that the B-Team seeks to “lure” the US into a confrontation with Iran that Trump himself does not want.
“They have all shown an interest in dragging the United States into a conflict,” Zarif said of Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates plus White House National Security advisor.
3- Escalation of anti-Iran economic terrorism shows US panic, desperation: FM Zarif
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the United States’ decision to intensify its economic pressure campaign against the Iranian people reveals its “panic” and “desperation,” a day after Washington moved to stop other countries from buying Iranian oil.
“Escalating #EconomicTERRORISM against Iranians exposes panic & desperation of US regime — and chronic failures of its client co-conspirators,” Zarif said in a tweet on Tuesday.
The top Iranian diplomat’s tweet came after the White House said in a statement that the US president has decided not to renew waivers that allow eight countries to buy Iranian oil without facing Washington’s sanctions.
The US threatened sanctions against the countries that refuse to stop purchasing Iranian oil by May 1.
The decision, which primarily affects China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey, sent oil prices to their highest levels since October 2018 on Tuesday, raising concerns about global crude supply.
Earlier on Monday, China, which is Iran’s largest crude customer, said it had formally complained to the US over the decision, pledging that it will continue efforts to protect the legitimate rights of Chinese firms in the face of American threats.
Tehran has said it considers no value and credit for the US sanctions waivers and is in touch with its foreign partners, including Europeans and neighbors, to counter any adverse consequences of the bans.
‘Iran takes no ‘advice’ from foreigners’
Elsewhere in his post, Zarif hit out at US President Donald Trump over his tweet a day earlier, in which he attempted to suggest that John Kerry, the ex-American secretary of state, is breaking a US law by giving “advice” to Iran.
“Iran is being given VERY BAD advice by @JohnKerry and people who helped him lead the U.S. into the very bad Iran Nuclear Deal. Big violation of Logan Act?” tweeted Trump, on the same day that his administration announced that it would be ending waivers from the oil sanctions.
In response to Trump’s claim, Zarif said, “REAL news, @realdonaldtrump: Inheritors of ancient Persian civilization don’t base strategy on “advice” of foreigners—let alone Americans.”
Escalating #EconomicTERRORISM against Iranians exposes panic & desperation of US regime—and chronic failures of its client co-conspirators.
