  1. Targeting Iran, US tightens Iraq's dollar flow, causing pain QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA and ABBY SEWELL Thu, February 2, 2023 at 12:37 AM CST BAGHDAD (AP) — For months, the United States has restricted Iraq’s access to its own dollars, trying to stamp out what Iraqi officials describe as rampant money laundering that benefits Iran and Syria. Iraq is now feeling the crunch, with a drop in the value of its currency and public anger blowing back against the prime minister. The exchange rate for the Iraqi dinar has jumped to around 1,750 to the dollar at street exchanges in some parts of the country, compared to the official rate of 1,460 dinars to the dollar. In Baghdad, exchange houses were closed on Thursday, while the Kurdistan Regional Government banned exchange companies in Sulaimaniyah from making transfers. Mustafa Al-Karawi, a member of the parliamentary budget committee, told the state news agency that the Central Bank “must meet the requirements of the Federal Reserve to...reduce the scarcity of hard currency in the country." He said new domestic procedures would be rolled out to improve access to currency, while a delegation of Iraqi officials will travel to the U.S. for negotiations next Friday. - ADVERTISEMENT - The devaluation has already sparked protests. If it persists, analysts said, it could challenge the mandate of the government formed in October after a yearlong political stalemate. The dinar’s deterioration comes even though Iraq’s foreign currency reserves are at an all-time high of around $100 billion, pumped up by spiking global oil prices that have brought increasing revenues to the petroleum-rich nation. But accessing that money is a different story. Since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, Iraq’s foreign currency reserves have been housed at the United States' Federal Reserve, giving the Americans significant control over Iraq’s supply of dollars. The Central Bank of Iraq requests dollars from the Fed and then sells them to commercial banks and exchange houses at the official exchange rate through a mechanism known as the “dollar auction.” In the past, daily sales through the auction often exceeded $200 million per day. Ostensibly, the vast majority of the dollars sold in the auction are meant to go to purchases of goods imported by Iraqi companies, but the system has long been porous and easily abused, multiple Iraqi banking and political officials told The Associated Press. U.S. officials confirmed to the AP that they suspected the system was used for money laundering but declined to comment in detail on the allegations or the new restrictions. For years, large quantities of dollars were transferred out of the country to Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, and Lebanon through “gray market trading, using fake invoices for overpriced items," a financial adviser to the Iraqi prime minister said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The inflated invoices were used to launder dollars, with most of them sent to Iran and Syria, which are under U.S. sanctions, leading to complaints from American officials, he said. In other cases, the currency is smuggled across land borders under the protection of armed groups that take a cut of the cash, said Tamkeen Abd Sarhan al-Hasnawi, chairman of the board of Mosul Bank and first deputy of the Iraq Private Banks League. He estimated that as much as 80% of the dollars sold through the auction went to neighboring countries. “Syria, Turkey, and Iran used to benefit from the dollar auction in Iraq,” he said. A member of one of Iraq’s Iran-backed militias, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the subject, said the majority of Iraqi banks are owned indirectly by politicians and political parties that have also used the dollar auction to their benefit. Late last year, the Fed began imposing stricter measures. Among other steps, at the request of the U.S., the Central Bank of Iraq started using an electronic system for transfers that required entering detailed information on the intended end-recipient of the requested dollars. One hundred Central Bank employees were trained by the Fed to implement the new system, the prime minister’s financial adviser said. “This system started rejecting transfers and invoices that used to be approved by the central bank,” he said. “Around 80% of transactions were being rejected.” The amount of dollars sold daily in the auction plummeted to $69.6 million on Jan. 31, from $257.8 million six months earlier, according to Central Bank records. Far fewer of the dollars are going toward buying imports as well, down to around 34% from 90%. Even when transactions are approved, it takes banks up to 15 days to get the funds rather than two or three days, Hasnawi said. Unable to get dollars at the official price through banks, he said, traders turned to the black market to buy dollars, causing the price to rise. In November, the Central Bank of Iraq added four new banks to the list of those banned from dealing in dollars. Two U.S. officials confirmed that the Fed requested the four banks be blocked because of suspected money laundering. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the case. A spokesperson for the New York Fed declined to discuss the specific measures taken with regards to Iraq. But the Fed said in a statement that it enforces “a robust compliance regime” for the accounts it holds. The statement said that this regime “evolves over time in response to new information, which we gather in the regular course of monitoring transactions and events that may impact an account and in communication with other relevant U.S. government agencies.” The system of keeping Iraq’s oil revenues at the Fed was originally imposed by U.N. Security Council resolutions after the 2003 ouster of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein by the U.S-led invasion. Later, Iraq chose to maintain the system to protect its revenues against potential lawsuits, particularly in connection to Iraq’s 1990s invasion of Kuwait. The new U.S. restrictions come at a time of increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran. Negotiations over a nuclear deal are floundering. Washington has imposed new sanctions and condemned Iran for cracking down on protesters and providing drones for Russia to use in Ukraine. Also, in Iraq, allegations came to light in October that over $2.5 billion in Iraqi government revenue was embezzled by a network of businesses and officials from the country’s tax authority The case “brought (U.S.) attention to the scale of corruption in Iraq” and how the corruption can benefit Iran and other parties hostile to the U.S., said Harith Hasan, head of the Iraq unit at the Emirates Research Center, an Abu Dhabi-based think tank. The new Iraqi prime minister, Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, who came to power via a coalition of Iranian-backed parties, does not have a strong relationship with the U.S. that could have enabled him to soften the implementation of the new financial measures, Hasan said. Al-Sudani has downplayed the current devaluation as “a temporary issue of trading and speculation.” He replaced the Central Bank governor and instituted measures intended to ensure a supply of dollars at the official rate. Al-Hasnawi said the government's recent measures will not stop the financial bleeding. If the current situation persists, he said, “within one year, most banks will declare bankruptcy” and there is likely to be mass civil unrest. “This U.S. pressure impacts the Iraqi street in a clear manner, and we do not see clear solutions until now,” he said. ____ AP staff reporters Samya Kullab in Baghdad and Christopher Rugaber in Washington contributed to this report.

  2. News|Military Iran thwarts drone attacks on Isfahan military site Iranian defence ministry says a loud blast heard in Isfahan was caused by ‘unsuccessful’ drone attacks. Members of the Iranian Army take part in a military exercise in Isfahan on September 8, 2022. [File: Handout/WANA via Reuters] Published On 29 Jan 202329 Jan 2023 Iran’s defence ministry has reported several drone attacks on a military plant in the country’s central city of Isfahan. The attacks were “unsuccessful” and there were no casualties, the ministry said in a statement early on Sunday. “One of [the drones] was hit by the … air defence and the other two were caught in defence traps and blew up,” said the statement carried by the state news agency, IRNA. “Fortunately, this unsuccessful attack did not cause any loss of life and caused minor damage to the workshop’s roof,” it said. The ministry did not say who was suspected of carrying out the attack. The statement came shortly after Iranian media reported a loud blast in Isfahan. News agencies published a video showing a flash of light at the plant, said to be an ammunitions factory, and footage of emergency vehicles and fire trucks outside the plant. The ministry said the attack “has not affected our installations and mission … and such blind measures will not have an impact on the continuation of the country’s progress”. Reports of the drone attacks in Isfahan also came as Iran’s state TV also said a fire had broken out at an oil refinery in an industrial zone near the northwestern city of Tabriz. It said the cause was not yet known as it showed footage of firefighters trying to extinguish the blaze. There have been several explosions and fires around Iranian military, nuclear and industrial facilities in the past few years.

Israel says Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, an allegation Tehran denies. In July last year, Iran said it had arrested a sabotage team made up of Kurdish fighters working for Israel who planned to blow up a “sensitive” defence industry centre in Isfahan. Iran also blamed Israel for the assassination of its top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, in 2020, as well as an attack on its underground Natanz nuclear facility in April 2021 that damaged its centrifuges. Israel has not claimed responsibility for the attacks. Israeli officials rarely acknowledge operations carried out by the country’s secret military units or its Mossad intelligence agency.

ONLY $6 FOR 1 YEAR Hurry, offer ends soon LOG IN ADVERTISEMENT NEWS EL RUKNS SOLICITED KHOMEINI, TAPES HINT By Liz Sly Chicago Tribune • Oct 31, 1987 at 12:00 am Player Version: 7.12.0 Player Key: 7WQ1xQNF-vJYVOHOP Configured as Smart Player: true Playlist Type: STANDARD Float Mode: onLoad volume_off -3:41 sd share closed_caption fullscreen Auto (225p) 225p 360p Subtitles Off Subtitles EN Top Videos: - Kiko Mizuhara’s Guide to Flawless Skin, and the Perfect Cat Eye Actor and model Kiko Mizuhara gives Vogue an inside look at her complexion-perfecting makeup routine, and offers advice on tracing a precise feline flick.Filmed at The Standard, High Line El Rukn gang members approached Iran`s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini for money after their efforts to solicit funds from Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi ran into difficulties, according to testimony Friday in U.S. District Court. Jeff Fort, the gang`s leader, was told that Khomeini had already agreed to meet with gang members by Melvin Mayes, a gang general, according to tape- recorded telephone conversations. The tape was played Friday at the trial of Fort and four El Rukn members on charges of conspiring to commit acts of terrorism for Libya. Tramell Davis, an accused gang member turned government witness helping the prosecution translate the conversations for jurors, testified that ''old friend'' is code for Khomeini, 87, while Gadhafi, 45, is called ''young friend.'' ''He already expecting us,'' Mayes tells Fort. ''Yeah, that sounds real good, I like our old friend,'' Fort replies. Davis testified that Khomeini had approved the idea of El Rukn members meeting with an Iranian representative to obtain money. Top S It was not clear whether gang members planned to travel to Iran-referred to in the conversations as ''the motherland''-or would meet a representative in Washington. In dozens of conversations played this week, jurors heard the gang plotting different means of persuading Gadhafi to give them money. Two gang members, Reico Cranshaw and Leon McAnderson, visited Libya in March, 1986, and returned saying Gadhafi had promised the El Rukns $2.5 million. But by the end of April, when the conversation regarding Khomeini took place, the tape has Fort sounding frustrated that no money had materialized. Fort accuses Cranshaw of making promises to Gadhafi that the El Rukns couldn`t keep. Cranshaw confirms that the only real commitment he made was that the El Rukns would make threatening phone calls on behalf of the Libyans but without any reciprocal promises of money. Throughout April, Fort directed gang members to impress the Libyans by preparing news clippings of violent incidents around the U.S. that the El Rukns would claim credit for, and by taping a video in which gang generals pledged allegiance to Gadhafi. Besides Fort, Cranshaw and McAnderson, the defendants are Alan Knox and Roosevelt Hawkins. Mayes was also charged but he fled, reportedly to Libya.
  5. As i been reading in the news and reserching things, i come to a conclusion, that the protests in Iran and the war in Ukraine, were not a normal action and were carefully planned and orchestrated by the powers. As for Iran, i think the plan was to cause internal strife because of the failed nuclear deal, and a potential US or Isreali strike on its nuclear facilities. The plan was to start turmoil in iran from the inside, i guess a military strike would most likley lead to a wider conflict and i guess the idea was to cause internal strife or try to bring iran down from the inside to avoid this possibility. as For Russia and ukraine,i think this was the same strategy as the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. To Arm and support the opposition like they did with the afghan mujahideen, to lower the moral of the russian army, to inflict losses and to possibly cause a strain finiancially like with the soviet union. Also to possibly incite a coup against Putin. So the whole plan was to shake these two regimes and possibly make it easier for the west to avoid any futrure or possible confrentations or conflicts,WWIII.
  6. LA Times Gunmen attack major Shiite holy site in Iran, killing 15 Gunmen attacked a major Shiite holy site in Iran on Wednesday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens. The attack came as protesters elsewhere in the country marked a symbolic 40 days since a woman's death in custody ignited the biggest anti-government movement in over a decade. [Mod Note: The photo from Tehran does not correspond with the terrorist attack in the city of Shiraz, so it was removed.] State TV blamed the attack on “takfiris,” a term that refers to Sunni Muslim extremists who have targeted the country's Shiite majority in the past. The attack appeared to be unrelated to the demonstrations. The official website of the judiciary said two gunmen were arrested and a third is on the run after the attack on the Shah Cheragh mosque, the second holiest site in Iran. The state-run IRNA news agency reported the death toll, and state TV said 40 people were wounded. An Iranian news website considered to be close to the Supreme National Security Council reported that the attackers were foreign nationals, without elaborating. Such attacks are rare in Iran, but last April, an assailant stabbed two clerics to death at the Imam Reza shrine, the country's most revered Shiite site, in the northeast city of Mashhad. President Ebrahim Raisi said that whoever led and planned the attack will “receive a regretful and decisive response,” without elaborating. IRNA quoted Raisi as saying, “This evil will definitely not go unanswered.” Earlier on Wednesday, thousands of protesters had poured into the streets of a northwestern city to mark the watershed 40 days since the death in custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, whose tragedy sparked the protests. Deaths are commemorated in Shiite Islam — as in many other traditions — again 40 days later, typically with an outpouring of grief. In Amini's Kurdish hometown of Saqez, the birthplace of the nationwide unrest now roiling Iran, crowds snaked through the local cemetery and thronged her grave. “Death to the dictator!" protesters cried, according to video footage that corresponds with known features of the city and Aichi Cemetery. Women ripped off their headscarves, or hijabs, and waved them above their heads. Other videos showed a massive procession making its way along a highway and through a dusty field toward Amini's grave. There were reports of road closures in the area. State-linked media reported 10,000 protesters in the procession to her grave. Hengaw, a Kurdish human rights group, said security forces fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators. The semiofficial ISNA news agency said security forces fired pellets at crowds of demonstrators on the outskirts of Saqez and pushed back demonstrators who tried to attack the governor's office. It said local internet access was cut off due to “security considerations.” Earlier in the day, Kurdistan Gov. Esmail Zarei Koosha insisted that traffic was flowing as normal, calling the situation “completely stable.” State-run media announced that schools and universities in Iran's northwestern region would close, purportedly to curb "the spread of influenza." In downtown Tehran, the capital, major sections of the traditional grand bazaar closed in solidarity with the protests. Crowds clapped and shouted “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!” through the labyrinthine marketplace. “This year is a year of blood!” they also chanted. "[Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] will be toppled!" Riot police on motorbikes were out in force. A large group of men and women marched through the streets, setting trash cans ablaze and shouting Death to the dictator!” as cars honked their support. Police unleashed anti-riot bullets at protesters in the streets and sprayed pellets up at journalists filming from windows and rooftops. Anti-government chants also echoed from the University of Tehran campus. Amini, detained for allegedly violating the country’s strict dress code for women, remains the potent symbol of protests that have posed one of the most serious challenges to the Islamic Republic. With the slogan #WomanLifeFreedom, the demonstrations first focused on women's rights and the state-mandated hijab, or headscarf for women. But they quickly evolved into calls to oust the Shiite clerics that have ruled Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The protests have also galvanized university students, labor unions, prisoners and ethnic minorities like the Kurds along Iran's border with Iraq. Since the protests erupted, security forces have fired live ammunition and tear gas to disperse demonstrations, killing over 200 people, according to rights groups. Untold numbers have been arrested, with estimates in the thousands. Iranian judicial officials announced this week they would bring over 600 people to trial over their role in the protests, including 315 in Tehran, 201 in the neighboring Alborz province and 105 in the southwestern province of Khuzestan. Tehran prosecutor Ali Salehi told the state-run IRNA news agency that four protesters were charged with “war against God," which is punishable by death in Iran. Iranian officials have blamed the protests on foreign interference, without offering evidence. Last week, Iran imposed sanctions on over a dozen European officials, companies and institutions, including foreign-based Farsi channels that have extensively covered the protests, accusing them of “supporting terrorism." The sanctions involve an entry and visa ban for the staffers in addition to the confiscation of their assets in Iran. Deutsche Welle, the German public broadcaster whose Farsi team was blacklisted, condemned the move on Wednesday as “unacceptable.” “I expect politicians in Germany and Europe to increase the pressure on the regime,” said DW Director General Peter Limbourg. In a separate development, most of the remaining portion of a 10-story tower that collapsed earlier this year in the southwestern city of Abadan, killing at least 41 people, fell on Wednesday, state-run media reported. The state-run IRNA news agency reported that a woman in a car parked near the site was killed. Other parts of the building had collapsed last month. The deadly collapse of the Metropol Building on May 23 became a lightning rod for protests in Abadan, some 410 miles southwest of the capital, Tehran. The disaster shined a spotlight on shoddy construction practices, government corruption and negligence in Iran. Videos spread online of the remaining tower crashing into the street as massive clouds of dust billowed into the sky. This story originally appeared in Los Angeles Times.

  11. Reports are emerging that on 12 Friday, Iran has targeted the US military base and consulate in Erbil Iraq, with as many as six missiles. © ASAAD NIAZI (AFP)Video showing an attack by Iranian missiles on a US base in Erbil Iraq have many wondering if the attack is related to the crisis in Ukraine. So far, officials with the Department of Defense have said no US casualties have been reported. Does the crisis in Ukraine relate to the attack? With global tensions high, many are wondering if the strike was motivated by the US' involvement in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. At this point, it does not appear that the conflict in eastern Europe was a contributing factor. Rather, the attack in Erbil is reportedly related to the killing of two Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) leaders in an Israeli air attack that took place in Syria earlier this week. Tensions have been increasing between the US and Iran over the last few years, prompted primarily from former-President Trump's rejection of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iranian Nuclear Agreement. In January 2020, Iran conducted a similar attack on a US base in retaliation for the killing of IRGC general Qasem Soleimani. Since President Biden took office, the two countries have failed to return to the negotiating table over Iran's nuclear ambitions. These factors help to highlight that there are many other reasons, outside of the conflict in Ukraine, that could have motivated the attack. Does Iran support the Russian invasion of Ukraine? Western media has made it very clear that Russia's targeting of Ukraine has brought Europe, Canada, and the United States closer together. Very little has been reported on Russia's geo-strategic alliances and how other countries are interpreting the invasion. One of President Putin's first calls after declaring his intention to invade Ukraine was to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi who told the Russian leader that he supported his decision and affirmed that “NATO expansion is a serious threat to the security and stability of independent nations.” Some Iranians have taken to the streets to protests President Putin's actions, showing that support from the Russian regime is not uniform in the country. When the United States announced additional sanctions on Russia in early March, White House officials said that they were going to take an approach roe similar to that of Iran. This news came after the European Union announced that various Russian banks would be prohibited from using the SWIFT banking system. When various Iranian banks were removed, Russia provided them with a connection to their global transaction system.

  20. Report details China and Iran's 'pragmatic' anti-U.S. partnership Jenna McLaughlin ·National Security and Investigations Reporter Mon, June 28, 2021, 9:06 AM Photo illustration: Yahoo News; photo: idea Ink Design/Shutterstock WASHINGTON — Leaders in Tehran and Beijing have grown closer over recent years, developing economic, intelligence sharing and diplomatic ties in a partnership broadly “opposed to the U.S.-led international order,” according to a new report released by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. In line with President Biden’s contention that the U.S. is facing a monumental test to demonstrate the value of democracy over autocracy, the report outlines two opponents to that proposition: an increasingly powerful China and a destabilizing Iran. While Beijing has some reservations toward coziness with Tehran, including a fear of a conflict between Tehran and Washington threatening energy markets, the two U.S. adversaries find common ground counterbalancing Western systems and deriving mutual benefit, the authors of the report suggest. In particular, according to the report, Iran helped spread popular Chinese anti-U.S. disinformation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic in recent months and propped up other domestic Chinese policies, while Beijing circumvents global sanctions to be “Iran’s primary oil customer.” - ADVERTISEMENT - The report also cites a Yahoo News series of investigations about Iran’s intelligence sharing with China that resulted in the detention and deaths of U.S. intelligence sources around the world, threatening U.S. security. The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, an independent government agency created in 2000 under the Floyd D. Spence National Defense Authorization Act, looks at the national security implications of trade and economic ties between the United States and China, drafting annual reports to Congress in addition to publishing more specific, subject-matter investigations. While the reports describe ties between Beijing and Tehran as initially more “limited,” the relationship has solidified in recent years, including through a recent formalized economic and security agreement, outlining an expansion in Chinese presence in Iranian industries as well as a $400 billion investment in exchange for Iranian resources, primarily oil, and military cooperation. Some experts dismissed the arrangement and the advertised investment as overblown, but it is evidence of ongoing partnership, the authors suggest. The commission report says Beijing needs to balance its commitments to Iran with other priorities in the region, including increasing ties to oil-rich Gulf nations like the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Beijing benefits from U.S. distraction in the Middle East and U.S. security arrangements, the authors argue. However, a more intense conflict between the U.S. and Iran, including a war, would likely be damaging to Chinese energy interests in the region. As Tehran’s international isolation and reliance on Beijing for economic and diplomatic support against U.S. pressure have increased, even issues like Beijing’s detention of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang haven’t proved a roadblock to cooperation between the two countries, according to the report. Iran signed on to a letter to the U.N. Human Rights Council supporting the Xinjiang detention system in 2019, and Iranian media outlets have defended the policy, which U.S. officials have decried as a form of “genocide.” While partnership between Beijing and Tehran may include some caveats, the authors of the report conclude, “the two regimes’ shared anti-U.S. policy orientation has long-term implications for Washington’s interests in both the Middle East and the Indo-Pacific.” ____

  22. I plan on studying at a hawza but I'm not sure which to choose, Najaf or Qom. Qom seems safer than Najaf, and preferable to those who support Wilayatul Faqih, but I have read that a lot of former Qom/Iranian scholars relocated to Najaf/Iraq because of the politics that go around in the Iranian seminaries. Personally I'm leaning on Najaf because I read that there are a lot more choices of subjects to choose and learn and students don't have to worry about politics but at the same time I also want to study Farsi and hone it and I don't know if the seminaries in Najaf/Iraq offer Farsi courses. I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
