“Iran brazenly violated Israel’s sovereignty,” stated Netanyahu on 10 February. “They dispatched an Iranian drone from Syrian territory into Israel.”
MOSCOW, January 4. /TASS/. Moscow warns Washington against attempts to interfere in Iran’s internal affairs, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Thursday.
“We warn the US against attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he stressed. “What is happening there is an internal affair, which attracts the attention of the international community. However, despite numerous attempts to distort the essence of what is going on, I am certain that our neighbor, the country that is friendly to us, will be able to overcome the current difficulties and emerge from the current period as a stronger nation and a reliable partner in solving various problems, including those related to further implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)”.
Above and below are some very good reports from RT on the protests in Iran. The information presented strongly suggests that the usual suspects, as it were, are behind the unrest–i.e. the US and Israel. Obviously, you won’t see this type of reporting in the mainstream media, which of course is why RT is so despised by political elites in the West.
[ Ed. note – The article below was originally published at The New Eastern Outlook website. It’s author, Petr Lvov, makes a compelling argument that Israel and Saudia Arabia are “backed into a corner and in a state of despair” over their failures in Syria and are now conspiring to create a scenario that would “force the US to attack Iran.”

Perhaps at some point we’ll see a sly Zionist pop up somewhere claiming the Kurds are an “ancient biblical people.”
(And doubtless, if so, he’d have plenty of money to buy off plenty of historians to “verify” his claim).
And maybe in the not-so-distant future we could even anticipate publication of a brand new modern English translation of the Bible with a rewording of the Book of Genesis to include the following: “So Abraham and his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot set out from Harran, but on the way they stopped off and got down and partied with their cousins, the Kurds, before heading off to conquer the land of Caanan.”
Don’t laugh. In the world we’re presently living in absurdities of this nature are well within the possible.
Something to be thankful about today. Leaders of Russia, Syria, Iran, Turkey, and other countries are now converging in Sochi, Russia. The hope is to convene a conference that will lead to a political settlement in Syria now that ISIS has been defeated. Take a look at the following video showing Assad’s rather triumphant arrival on November 21. Watch as he meets not only Vladimir Putin but also some of the Russian military leaders who did so much to make this moment possible. The video was posted by Inessa Sinchougova, who also supplies the English subtitles:
In the above video we see a political analyst expressing disappointment that Putin has not spoken out against Israel’s repeated airstrikes on Syria. It’s a legitimate concern, and one which I’ve expressed previously myself. Interestingly, however, almost at the same time the video was uploaded by Press TV, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov angered the Israelis by describing Iran’s presence in Syria as “legitimate.”
