EU erhöht Druck auf Iran – Betroffen seien etwa 180 Einrichtungen und Einzelpersonen

Brüssel (Reuters) – Die EU will den Druck auf den Iran mit einer neuen Sanktionsrunde verstärken und bereitet ein Ölembargo vor.

Über die gerade erst verschärften Sanktionen hinaus sollten in den kommenden Wochen weitere Maßnahmen im Finanz-, Transport- und Energiesektor geprüft werden, beschlossen die EU-Außenminister am Donnerstag in Brüssel. Der Begriff Ölembargo fiel dabei gezielt nicht, weil Griechenland und Italien wegen starker Abhängigkeit von iranischen Lieferungen nicht zustimmen wollten. Doch Frankreichs Außenminister Alain Juppe gab sich zuversichtlich, dass das von seinem Land vorgeschlagene Ölembargo kommt. Es müssten alternative Lieferanten gefunden werden. Auch die US-Regierung will den Druck auf das Land mit neuen Sanktionen gegen die iranische Zentralbank erhöhen, wie eine Staatssekretärin erklärte. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Bundeskriminalamt – „derzeit keine unmittelbare Gefahr.“möglicher Anschläge des Iran in Deutschland

Die deutsche Bundesanwaltschaft ermittelt indes wegen möglicher Anschlagspläne Teherans in Deutschland. Generalbundesanwalt Harald Range sagte am Donnerstag, es bestehe der Verdacht, dass Iran im Falle eines Angriffs der USA Einrichtungen der US-Armee in Deutschland attackieren wolle: „Wir haben ein Ermittlungsverfahren eingeleitet und führen operative Maßnahmen durch.“

Allerdings besteht nach Angaben des Präsidenten des Bundeskriminalamtes Jörg Ziercke „derzeit keine unmittelbare Gefahr.“

WIKILEAKS : The Spy files – Kommunikationsüberwachung

Mass interception of entire populations is not only a reality, it is a secret new industry spanning 25 countries

It sounds like something out of Hollywood, but as of today, mass interception systems, built by Western intelligence contractors, including for ’political opponents’ are a reality. Today WikiLeaks began releasing a database of hundreds of documents from as many as 160 intelligence contractors in the mass surveillance industry. Working with Bugged Planet and Privacy International, as well as media organizations form six countries – ARD in Germany, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism in the UK, The Hindu in India, L’Espresso in Italy, OWNI in France and the Washington Post in the U.S. Wikileaks is shining a light on this secret industry that has boomed since September 11, 2001 and is worth billions of dollars per year. WikiLeaks has released 287 documents today, but the Spy Files project is ongoing and further information will be released this week and into next year. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Iran News Round Up (Dec. 1)

Iran’s foreign ministry vows to retaliate to London’s expulsion of Iranian diplomats; Sweden, Netherlands summon envoys to Tehran for consultations; parliament passes bill to allocate oil revenue to Basij; Afghans protest in Kabul against execution of relatives in Iran

  • Aftermath of attacks against the two British compounds in Tehran:
    • Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast: „Tehran will retaliate in kind to the steps taken by London.“
    • SNN, mouthpiece of the Student Basij: „The students who entered the embassy had no part in vandalizing the properties of the British embassy apart from smashing a few windows and bottles of liquor. The destruction began as the masses entered… On the one hand, the students were trying to secure the embassy ground, and on the other hand there were some who were inclined to destroy the embassy property and insisted upon vandalism… It is not clear which party those who were inclined to vandalism belonged to, but it was totally clear that they were not students. Some had only come for vandalism and it is not unthinkable that the Old Imperialism itself had designed it to achieve its media goals through them… “ Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

1510 GMT: Peyke Iran reports that the eleven Basiji students who were arrested during the attack on the UK Embassy have now been released by security forces. The 11 were arrested out of a total of hundreds, perhaps a thousand Basiji students who raided the main compound and the secondary building in Baghe Ghalhak and have created a diplomatic nightmare for Iran.  Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Iran Analysis: The Embassy Attack — „A Serious Mis-Calculation“ by the Regime

Last night, on the Iran LiveBlog, I noted the steady pull-out of European ambassadors and closure of embassies in Tehran, with the European Union considering further sanctions on Iran today, and wrote: „At this rate, the attack on the British Embassy — assuming that the regime was not looking to use it for a showdown with Europe as well as the US and Britain — is looking like a serious mis-calculation.“ Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Eye on Iran: UK Embassy Attack Bolsters EU Push for Iran Sanctions

Top Stories

Reuters: „The storming of the British embassy compound in Tehran provides extra ammunition to European governments pushing for stronger sanctions against Iran, in particular a contentious embargo on Iranian oil, diplomats said on Wednesday. EU foreign ministers meet in Brussels on Thursday to map out Europe’s response to a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency in recent weeks that suggested Iran has worked on designing an atom bomb. Much has already been agreed — the EU will add some 180 names to a list of people and entities targeted by pan-European sanctions — but a number of EU capitals have yet to decide exactly how much economic pressure the EU should apply on Iran over its nuclear program, which it says is peaceful. Tuesday’s attack on the British embassy by dozens of students and protesters angry over Britain’s unilateral sanctions could go some way towards convincing them stronger action is needed, diplomats said. ‚From a political point of view this (attack) cannot, I think, work in the direction of EU member states wanting to ease pressure on Iran,‘ one senior EU diplomat said. ‚On the contrary.'“  Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags
