Stop Fundamentalism – Iranian officials are rejecting news of an explosion near the central city of Isfahan after some news agencies reported a terrifying explosion sound that was heard in various parts of the city Monday.  Reports also indicate fire trucks started moving rapidly inside the city sounding sirens following the sound.

A security official in Isfahan categorically denied the existence of any reports about an explosion sound in the city saying no agency has reported hearing it.

An explosion that occurred two weeks ago in an IRGC ballistic missile base near Tehran killing up to 36 IRGC personnel according to some reports including Iran’s top military missile expert, General Hasan Moghaddam .  Observers believe Moghaddam was there to test fire a new missile when something went wrong and the missile exploded.


Iran Told to Back Off its Nuclear Weapons Program

Stop Fundamentalism - The Obama administration unveiled a new list of Iranian financial sanctions designed to force Iran to back off from its aggressive nuclear ambitions and activities, Monday.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a joint press conference with Secretary of Treasury, Timothy Geithner, announced the new initiative to further press Iran after the release of a report by United Nations’ Nuclear agency.

“President Obama signed an executive order that, for the first time, specifically targets Iran’s Petro-chemical industry,” Clinton told reporters at the press conference.


Iran, Mujahedin-e Khalq, and the US State Department

Hamid Yazdanpanah:

At the end of June, the world watched as Iran test-fired 14 medium range missiles capable of reaching US and Israeli bases in the Middle East.  According to British Foreign Secretary William Hague, Iran has also been carrying out covert missile tests, “including testing of missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload.” In Syria, the Islamic Republic exercises its influence by assisting the worn-down Assad regime in brutally suppressing the Syrian people.  And in Iraq, we continue to see the hand of the Iranian regime in the ongoing violent insurgency, as well as in Maliki’s government.

Tehran’s growing influence indicates a failure of Western policy towards the Islamic Republic. The policy of the United States and the European Union towards Iran has consistently been timid, often reminiscent of Europe’s appeasement of Adolf Hitler with the Munich Pact. The history of Western relations with Iran since the Revolution of 1979 shows continuous attempts by the West to reach out to the mullah’s regime with the hope of finding some favorability, only to see the mullahs rebuff those overtures. And what has consistently been a go-to practice in appeasing Tehran? The harassment and terrorist listing of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK).



Washington Policy Group Reveals Undisclosed Iranian Nuclear Site

The information will be released at a press conference held by the IPC.  The source of the information, the Iranian main opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran(PMOI/MEK), is the same source that originally tipped the existence of an Iranian clandestine nuclear program back in 2002 and uncovered Iranian nuclear sites such as Natanz uranium enrichment facility and the Arak heavy-water plant.
