Twitter Web App : I really fail to understand Israel’s ‘logic.’ Just ‘normalizing’ assassination? How many nuclear weapons does Israel possess — all undeclared? Time for everyone in the Mideast to come clean and start a real peace process. twitter.com/elliegeranmaye…

Twitter Web App : The Ayatollahs No Longer Differ
Negar Mortazavi speaks with Iranian-American author and journalist Hooman Majd about contemporary Iran from the unique perspective of the son of a former diplomat, born in Iran, schooled in Europe, and living in Brooklyn, NY.

Twitter Web App : Thank you Ann Curry. Leading a program >20 years ago is not the same as leading it for >20 years. Let me add to the list that the constraints under the #IranDeal do not all end in 2030 (in fact none of the major ones do) and some of the restriction never expire. #DetailsMatter twitter.com/anncurry/statu…

Twitter Web App : What few people are pointing out is that Israel has been telling the world since at least 2010, with covert and overt US support, that scientists are fair military targets. This should terrify everyone. twitter.com/Cirincione/sta…

Twitter Web App : This is also a problem in the media when it comes to Iran. If Iran assassinated an Israeli nuclear scientist on Israeli soil, the media coverage would be very different. twitter.com/Cirincione/sta…

Twitter Web App : I agree with Vali Nasr. The only silver-lining of this assassination is be that the next admin may now sense the urgency of diplomacy with Iran. Biden should prioritize a fast and clean return to the Iran deal before Iranian hardliners sabotage what's left of it. twitter.com/vali_nasr/stat…

Twitter Web App : Israel wants a Iran-US war. The latest murder has nothing to do with a nuclear program. If their concerns were nuclear they would not have been so enthusiastic about Trump abandoning the nuclear deal. This was a murder to instigate war. Journalists who don’t see that are failing.

Twitter Web App : If the primary purpose of the killing of Mr. Fakhrizadeh was to make it harder to restart the Iran nuclear agreement, then this assassination does not make America, Israel or the world safer.

Twitter Web App : Appreciate you David Sanger, but WHOA. It’s not a verifiable fact that Iran has been pursuing “a nuclear weapon for the past two decades.” It is both DEBATED and DISPUTED. Therefore, you must ATTRIBUTE here.

Otherwise, you are misleading the public, w/all due respect The New York Times twitter.com/sangernyt/stat…

Twitter Web App : The assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was reckless, provocative, and illegal. As a new administration takes power, it was clearly intended to undermine U.S.-Iran diplomacy. We must not allow that to happen.

Diplomacy, not murder, is the best path forward. twitter.com/nytimes/status…

iPhone : Going on BBC radio to discuss the assassination of Iranian scientist #Fakhrizadeh, its impact on the country’s defense and nuclear program, and how this will complicate things for Biden-Rouhani diplomacy.

Tune in 📻 🇬🇧

iPhone : Ongoing provocations of Iran are a transparent effort to stoke military confrontation and end to chances of diplomacy. Reckless and irresponsible decisions being made today will cost lives tomorrow. Jan 20 can't come soon enough.

iPhone : This was an illegal targeted assassination.

If any country did this to a single nuclear scientist in America it would be called terrorism. twitter.com/nytimes/status…

iPhone : 1/4 The assassination of a senior Iranian nuclear scientist appears to have been a deliberate effort to provoke a response which could be used to justify military strikes against #Iran by the U.S. or other states. Iran has shown restraint by not retaliating against a series of

iPhone : .Ted Cruz is now misrepresenting the Logan Act. Apparently, he is a poor Senator & a bad lawyer. A private citizen publicly criticizing what could be a state-sponsored assassination of a government official & cautioning against retaliatory killing is called freedom of speech.

iPhone : US and Israeli efforts to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program have now morphed into Trump & Netanyahu sabotaging the next US President. Given close ties between Netanyahu & Trump, and the seriousness of this killing, it is likely that Trump green lighted it. commondreams.org/views/2020/11/…
