The U.S. has warned its allies against doing business with Iran in an attempt to put more pressure on it to come to the negotiating table. His weapon? Sanctions.
Sigal Mandelker, the Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Finance Intelligence gave a detailed presentation on what Iran is doing to move money and weapons to Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere. She pointed out the key role of the Central Bank of Iran.
Sigal highlighted that Iran “is a regime that uses shell and front companies to conceal its tracks. And all of this to support terrorism, support WMD proliferation and exploiting its own people through corruption and human rights abuses.”
All of this was ignored by Obama’s Iran deal.
Trump understands that the best way to stop Iran is by reimposing economic sanctions. CLICK HERE to view VIDEO of the strong US stance on sanctioning Iran.

1 – Trump: Kim Will Move Immediately on Denuclearization – NEWSMAX, June 12, 2018
President Donald Trump said Tuesday he believes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will move immediately on steps toward denuclearization and that the process is moving rapidly, according to an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“I just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea. I believe that he’s going back and will start it virtually immediately,” Trump said in excerpts of the interview broadcast on Fox after the U.S.-North Korea summit in Singapore. “And he’s already indicated that.” “It’s a process and it’s really moving rapidly,” he added.
Trump sounded optimistic, telling Hannity that he and Kim “got along from the beginning” and that Kim understood the need to dismantle his nuclear program.
“His country has to be de-nuked and he understood that, he fully understood that, he didn’t fight it,” Trump said.

Defense minister wants Trump’s Korean denuclearization model implemented with Tehran; on Gaza, he slams as ‘delusions’ the idea that improving Strip’s economy will halt terror

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman claimed Sunday morning that the ayatollah regime in Tehran was “living on borrowed time,” expressing his hope that US President Donald Trump’s Korean model of complete denuclearization could be implemented in Iran as well.
In an interview with Army Radio, Liberman repeated Israel’s position that it is “determined to prevent an Iranian presence in Syria, and we will do everything so that doesn’t happen. The danger on the northern border is serious and real.”
Liberman praised Trump’s demand that North Korea’s nuclear program be completely dismantled, saying, “I hope that the model of Korea completely giving up its nuclear program can be implemented in Iran’s case as well.”
However, he continued, “We have seen the opposite — an announcement by Ayatollah [Ali] Khamenei that he has ordered to accelerate the nuclear programs in his country.”
3 – A day on the frontlines of the Gaza riot war – Nikki Guttman – ISRAEL HAYOM, June 10, 2018
…The Israel-Gaza border fence has been the site of riots for 11 consecutive weekends, and Hamas has made every effort to bring the Gaza masses right up to the fence. Hamas is calling the protests “million-man” demonstrations, although in fact only a few tens of thousands are showing up.
Still, that is a lot of people. And as we Israel Hayom reporters make our way toward the forces posted along the fence, we spot dozens of burning kites and balloons rigged with explosives in the smoky sky.
Hamas promised hundreds of kites, and it has kept its promise. During the protests, they launch these flaming kites, hoping they will land and cause harm. In the hot, dry climate, these kites turn into fire machines, and they have burned thousands of acres of Israeli farmland and forests. The roads near the border are full of fire trucks and JNF jeeps trying to prevent fires. But it’s a hard job, and a tree that was alive and breathing one moment bursts into flames the next.
Through the smoke, one can see the mosques of Gaza. The closer you get to the fence, the blacker the smoke appears. The Israeli soldiers, who are being harshly judged by the entire world every day, tell us, “We can barely see anything. Everything’s black.”

4 – “I tried to find a street in which I would not have to walk over the corpses; but that was impossible”
– Robert Spencer – JIHAD WATCH, June 11, 2018
Ramadan Day 26 thought for the day from my new book The History of Jihad: in 1064, the Seljuk Turkish sultan, Alp Arslan, besieged the Armenian city of Ani. The thirteenth-century Muslim historian Sibt ibn al-Jawzi recounted the testimony of an eyewitness:
The army entered the city, massacred its inhabitants, pillaged and burned it, leaving it in ruins and taking prisoner all those who remained alive…. The dead bodies were so many that they blocked the streets; one could not go anywhere without stepping over them. And the number of prisoners was not less than 50,000 souls. I was determined to enter the city and see the destruction with my own eyes. I tried to find a street in which I would not have to walk over the corpses; but that was impossible.

On Monday, The New Yorker published a lengthy feature purportedly presenting the strategy with which “President [Trump], Israel, and the Gulf states plan to fight Iran — and leave the Palestinians and the Obama years behind.”
The piece, titled “Donald Trump’s New World Order,” was researched and written by Adam Entous, a Washington Post correspondent specializing in national security, foreign policy and intelligence. It has already generated considerable attention in Israel based on new facts about the relationship between leaders from the US, Israel, and the Arab world. The piece also offers up a bevy of information about officials in the Obama and Trump eras.
