NCRI - Donald Trump notified Congress, on Monday, November 6, that he would be extending the National Emergency with Respect to Iran that has been ongoing since the 1979 hostage crisis.In the formal notice, Trump wrote: “Our relations with Iran have not yet normalized, and the process of implementing the agreements with Iran, dated January 19, 1981, is ongoing.

For this reason, the national emergency declared on November 14, 1979, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond November 14 2017.”

This is just one example of how the Trump administration has been much tougher on Iran than previous administrations, breaking nearly 40 years of appeasement of the Regime.

The Trump administration shares the view of key US ally Saudi Arabia, that Iran is destabilising the Middle East (most notably Lebanon, Syria and Yemen) through a number of proxy militias and terrorist groups, in order to create a power vacuum which they would then take advantage of in order to control their fellow countries.

The Iranian Regime’s destabilisation of the Middle East can be poignantly shown in events from the past week.

Also on Monday, Saudi Arabia declared that the Iranian Regime of instigating a bomb attack on Riyadh by the Lebanese Hezbollah (which are backed by Iran), calling it a declaration of war.

Thankfully, the Saudi forces were able to intercept the bomb, which was fired from Yemen on Saturday, and blow it up in mid-air before it could hurt anyone.

While on Saturday, November 4, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri quit in a shock press conference, blaming Iran and Hezbollah for his decision. He said that they were plotting to assassinate him, as Iranian proxies did to his father in 2005.

Last Wednesday, declassified CIA documents which were seized from Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistan compound in 2011, revealed a close relationship between Iran and al Qaeda, including sheltering 9/11 plotters from American authorities.

As noted, Trump has been getting tough on the Iranian Regime.

In mid-October, Trump decertified Iranian compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, which was signed by the US, the UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia, and asked Congress to decide how to proceed. Congress has until December to decide whether or not to reimpose sanctions that were lifted under the nuclear deal.

While earlier in the year, Trump has imposed more non-nuclear sanctions against the Iranian Regime and especially their Revolutionary Guard Corps, for support of terrorism, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile launches.
