Navy speedboatA national defense analyst says it’s not surprising to hear more evidence that the Iranian regime is behind recent attacks across the Middle East.

Already famous for its spying capabilities, the Israeli government is also keeping a close eye on Iran and now the head of Mossad is publicly stating Iran is responsible for oil tankers that were bombed in the Persian Gulf and for oil fields struck in Saudi Arabia and in Iraq.  

The attacks, he said, "were approved by the Iranian leadership, and were carried out, at least mostly, by the Revolutionary Guard and their surrogates."

Bob Maginnis, a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, says the revelations from Mossad only confirms what was suspected.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani“It just re-emphasizes that Iran's maligned activities across the Middle East are unhelpful,” he says. “It will continue to do so especially if pressure continues to put them in the corner. I think they'll continue to strike out."

Iran is now making international headlines over vowing to break an agreed-to cap on uranium enrichment that allowed it to operate nuclear power plants but prevents it from building nuclear weapons, at least in view of UN observers and the public. 

Hassan Rouhani, Iran's president, has vowed in recent days to enrich uranium to "any amount we want" despite the nuclear deal struck with the Obama administration.

Tlaib balks when asked if Israel has right to exist

Tlaib, Rep. Tashida (D-Michigan)When pointedly asked if Israel has the right to exist, Muslim pro-Palestinian Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) balked and dodged the question, saying Israel “exists” to the “detriment” of Palestinians, but then conceded when asked again, insisting at the same time that Palestinians also have a right to human rights – somewhat disqualifying her answer.
