Israeli minister warns of Iran escalation fallout for Tel Aviv

The US has recently deployed an aircraft carrier and bombers in the Persian Gulf, with the administration of President Donald Trump’s trying to increase economic pressure on Tehran. “Things are heating up,” in the Persian Gulf, Yuval Steinitz, a confidant of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, told the Ynet news site on Sunday. “I wouldn’t rule anything out. Iran may fire rockets at Israel,” he said. Steinitz also claimed that if the standoff between Tehran and Washington escalates, Iran's allies such as Hezbollah resistance movement in Lebanon and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement in the Gaza Strip may attack Israel with their rockets. The US Air Force acknowledged Friday that B-52 bombers ordered by the White House to be deployed to the Persian Gulf to counter unspecified threats from Iran had arrived at a major American air base in Qatar. On Sunday, the White House said it would send the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and the bombers into the Persian Gulf to counter Tehran.   Israeli leaders and pro-Israeli groups in the US are believed to be the driving force behind President Donald Trump's extremely hostile policies toward Iran.    'Israel is within our range' Ali Motahhari, the deputy speaker of Iranian Parliament, dismissed the US deployments in the Persian Gulf as “psychological warfare,” saying Washington is “not ready for a war, especially when Israel is within our range.” Motahhari’s remarks echoed those of Major General Hossein Salami, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), who said the US is waging “a psychological war” against Iran. Addressing a parliament session in Tehran, Salami said the deployment of the carrier to the region was part of the American military’s regular rotation schedule, a lawmaker said. “Commander Salami, with attention to the situation in the region, presented an analysis that the Americans have started a psychological war because the comings and goings of their military is a normal matter,” MP Behrouz Nemati said. Also on Sunday, a senior commander of IRGC stressed that the US forces stationed in the Persian Gulf “will be hit on the head” if they make a mistaken move. "An aircraft carrier with at least 40 to 50 fighter jets and 6,000 personnel was a serious threat for us in the past, but is now a target and threats have turned into opportunities," the IRGC's aerospace division Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said. Another senior IRGC official said the Trump administration does not dare to wage a war on Iran. Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, a political head of the IRGC, said the aggressive rhetoric the US has adopted against Iran is just part of a mechanism that the American officials have devised in line with their sanctions to make them more practical. Tensions rose after the US said last month that it would not renew waivers allowing Tehran’s eight largest customers to purchase oil in order to bring Iranian oil exports to zero. Washington withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) last year and reimposed unilateral sanctions that had been lifted under the landmark 2015 agreement. Iran on Wednesday informed the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany -- the remaining five signatories to the deal -- that it was suspending some of its commitments under the deal. Tehran also gave the three European signatories 60 days to meet their commitments, especially in the banking and oil sectors, and guarantee Iran’s interests in the face of US sanctions.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
