|Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei|
"A group of prominent early followers of Islam elected Abu Bakr, a companion of Mohammed, to be the first caliph, or leader of the Islamic community, over the objections of those who favored Ali ibn Abi Talib, Mohammed’s cousin and son-in-law." This led to the schism in the religion of Sunnis versus Shi'ites. Their teachings have differed in that Sunnis follow the Shafi'i, Hanafi, Hanbali, and Maliki fiqh while Shi'a follow Jafari, Zaidi, and Alevi fiqh.
Here are ancient Persian noblemen. Before the Muslims came into being through Muhammad, Jews were living in Medina, Persia. One of Mohammad's wives was Safia, of Jewish origin.

Iran has it backwards. They are telling the world it is the USA that are the oppressors. The Iranian government is oppressing their own people.
Iranians had met in a crowd during the Arab Spring and Neda Agha Soltan, 27 year old music student, was shot and killed for being there.The demonstration was against the 2009 Iranian presidential election results (a disputed victory by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and in support of opposition candidates Iran's cleric-led government and the self-described "green wave" movement had claimed that hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stole his June 12 re-election through fraud. Why was she demonstrating there? She just wanted "democracy and freedom for the people of Iran,"

The government of Iran is criticized both for restrictions and punishments that follow the Islamic Republic's constitution and law,. They are also criticized for actions such as the torture, rape and killing of political prisoners, and the beatings and killings of dissidents and other civilians.and punishments that follow the Islamic Republic's constitution and law, Restrictions and punishments in the Islamic Republic of Iran which violate international human rights norms include harsh penalties for crimes, punishment of "victimless crimes" such as fornication and homosexuality, execution of offenders under 18 years of age, restrictions on freedom of speech and the press (including the imprisonment of journalists), and restrictions on freedom of religion and gender equality in the Islamic Republic's Constitution (especially attacks on members of the Bahá'í religion). The Bahai's have their center in Haifa, Israel where they have built a beautiful sanctuary.
Iran now has a cargo ship which is being escorted by the Iranian navy in the waters which left Iran for Yemen. They said they will refuse inspections by anyone involved in the conflict in Yemen. Iran is ignoring that request to send the ship to Djibouti in Africa for a UN inspection for aid to Yemen. The USA will not force the issue and board the ship to inspect it but will leave that up to the Saudis or Egyptians.
Remember how flotillas of ships backing the Palestinians refused inspections from Israel who had to check them out for weaponry heading for Gaza? No one bothered to understand Israel's position, then. What Iran is doing is testing the US redlines in the Gulf of Aden. We've seen other testing going on with US flagged ships and a convoy of 7 cargo ships carrying weapons for the Houthis in Yemen.

|Nasrallah of Hezbollah Terrorists and Khameini who ordered him to attack the Takfiri Terrorists |
This is used by Shi'a groups such as Hezbollah to refer indiscriminately to Sunnis. So Khameini was telling this Hezbollah leader to attack Sunnis. Khameini's Shi'ism seems Sunnis as "one who is, or claims to be, a Muslim and is declared impure. They are to Shi'as, practicing apostasy. I'd say they are extremely oppressive to their fellow Muslim Brothers. When you get right down to it, Sunnis outnumber them.
As for Iran's nuclear power program which they are in dire need of, Khamenei told their state TV that Tehran will not take unreasonable demands from the world powers when they are in the act of negotiations. Khamenei ruled out letting any of their atomic scientists be interviewed. He's guarding their privacy. He acts like any interview is an attack on their person. G-d help them if they let it be known that they are like prisoners, held to do their work-if that is the case. Who knows what an interview might expose!
Khamenei has the final word on any deal, and now our American Congress also has the final word. He has already let the world know that military sites will not be inspected. In the deal the inspectors will have 24 days if denied access to sites to inspect. That's enough time for them to hide a jeep in a bale of hay. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who has been perceived as the most demanding in the talks, is finding these hitches in the deal.
EU political director Helga Maria Schmid must discuss the situation with Iranian negotiators Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht-Ravanchi. These talks will run until Friday, She has a long resume of accomplishments, the last assignment being the Director of the Policy Planning and Early Warning Unit (Policy Unit) of the High Representative for the CFSP in the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union, Brussels, 2006 - 2010. She's trilingual, speaking German, English and French.
The board of P5+1 will meet from June 16th to 20th for a round. "June 30 deadline to resolve a decade-old standoff over Iran's nuclear work."
Can Israel count on the USA? Israel has the most to lose if Iran has the capabilities of nuclear power. Iran has made it clear that Israel must be destroyed, and they are working night and day to create a nuclear factory for what?
