The Foreign Minister of Iran threatened to completely withdraw from the multinational nuclear agreement Monday; warning European nations that there’s no “Plan B” should President Trump decide to withdraw from the accord.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif posted the ominous message on social media this week, saying “it is either all or nothing” and his nation would cease complying with the pact should the United States abandon the deal.
“President Macron is correct in saying there’s no ‘Plan B’ on JCPOA. It’s either all or nothing. European leaders should encourage President Trump not just to stay in the nuclear deal, but more importantly to begin implementing his part of the bargain in good faith,” he tweeted.

IRAN ON EDGE: Tehran ARRESTS THOUSANDS as Regime Hangs On
An Iranian lawmaker publicly announced Thursday that the hardline Islamic regime has detained over 3,700 protesters and demonstrators –many of them students- in an attempt to quash the nationwide riots that stunned leaders in Tehran, reports Fox News.
The demonstrations, mostly due to stagnant wages and low employment opportunities for Iranian youth, have rocked the country for nearly two weeks. The protests are the largest seen in Iran since 2009’s “Twitter Revolution” or “Green Movement.”
At least 21 people have been killed in the chaos.
While Iranian authorities insist the demonstrations are coming to an end, the protests continue in towns and cities across the Islamic Republic.
President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed their support towards the demonstrators, saying Iran was “finally” fighting for freedom against the oppressive regime.
“The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime,” Trump tweeted. “All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their ‘pockets.’ The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!”
BOMBSHELL: Obama SECRETLY Protected TERROR GROUP to Appease Iran
A bombshell report published in Politico this week outlines the Obama administration’s secret efforts to let terror-group Hezbollah “off the hook” in an effort to appease Tehran ahead of the Iranian nuclear agreement.
The explosive report, titled “The Secret Backstory of How Obama Let Hezbollah Off the Hook” shows President Obama’s covert decision to back-off an American law enforcement crackdown on Hezbollah, even as the Jihadi network “funneled Cocaine into the United States” to finance its efforts.
“In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States,” writes Politico.
“Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy,” the author adds.
Hezbollah is a militant, anti-Israeli terror organization based in Lebanon and backed by the Iranian regime. Iran uses the network as a launching pad for attacks against Israeli soldiers stationed near the Lebanese border.
Hezbollah and Israel waged a direct war against each other during the 2006 Israeli-Lebanon War.
