Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared on Tuesday that the sanctions regime against his country was on the verge of complete collapse and that no country would be able to continue exerting pressure on Iran, in a speech he delivered to 12,000 workers in Tehran.

Rouhani said those benefiting from the sanctions, established to combat his country’s nuclear program, should start looking for another way to benefit. He claimed that Iran would “continue the path of constructive interaction with the world under the guidance of the [Supreme] Leader and support of and support of our people, and no country in the world can continue exerting pressure and imposing sanctions against Iran in the future.”

During the speech, Rouhani stressed the importance of Iranian self-reliance, concentrating the country’s capital within its territory, and prioritizing what he called “the resistance economy,” according to semi-official state news agency Mehr.

He also discussed the ongoing nuclear talks with world powers, saying that the Tehran regime was not only dealing with resolving the nuclear issue with the West in these talks, but that it considered them a first step toward the resolution of the political issues between the sides.

Rouhani said that Iran was seeking “two issues at the negotiation table: first, to clear all accusations, and secondly, to remove all obstacles that the malevolent countries have created on our path toward having a constructive interaction with the world.”

He added that if the other side exhibits serious political will to achieve a nuclear deal with Iran, it could be attained within a few months.

President Rouhani delivered his remarks at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran, on the occasion of the 26th National Festival for Appreciation of Workers and Industrial Producers.

Critics of rapprochement with Iran, including Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, say the country’s leaders have proven that they can’t be trusted and that Iran’s sponsorship of terror and continued threats against the West indicate that true reformation in the country is still distant.

    Obama will make a similar argument for this toilet paper deal he is about to sign
    So Obama and Iran will get the deal .They (Iran) built the bomb (if they don’t already have it by now) they will threaten the entire region. Nuclear proliferation will rein An attack will occur >the Superpowers will take sides .And I fear the powder keg will explode into wwiii with the facilitation of Obama’s appeasement containment policy
    It’s all over but the crying.
    Obama will allow nothing stop his Iran deal NOTHING .
    Yesterday a Maersk line tanker was commandeered by the Iranians. Initially it was reported that shots were fired across the bow of the ship, forced the ship into Iranian waters and Iran’s forces commandeered the ship. The ship belongs to the martial Islands, whose defense is the US Military responsibility. This was an act of War committed by Iran , however
    you can see the backtracking being performed with the white house as two hours later ,The Pentagon made a statement to the effect that Iran was within its right to hijack the boat .
    Whitehouse and the state department were hard at work in the disinformation effort – all to facilitate the Iran Toilet \Paper deal

    Rouhani must be eternally grateful to his bosom buddie “Delay Obama”

  • Iran continues to support terror across the Middle East, while demanding the end of all sanctions. If the USA, Iran and France have different versions of the agreement the first step must to to make sure all three agree on what the agreement says!

    Since Rouhani’s lips were moving, it should be taken as fact that he is lying. Arab officials should be required to have Taqiyyah as their middle names, as it could help avoid confusion when dealing with them, especially the naïve.

    When historians look back upon this era & weigh the the strength of the P5 +1 going into the negotiations and look at the stated goal of the same; they will be perplexed by the abject failure 18 months later with the restatement of objective numerous time unto it reflects the opening position of the Persians. They will be mystified how the Allie Nation ceded their power to President Obama using Ambassador Kerry and Wendy Sherman. All 3 need not worry since their names will be very prominent on the pages of history if the follow through with this piece of paper a paper and invisible ink.

  • I wonder, who is that guy called Supreme Leader. Did he win some election or is his title equivalent to the king and he has inherited his title? Or was he chosen by Allah by some revelation or something? Where does he come from? It is important to know as it seems to me that in Iran he finally decides everything. Or maybe he is the equivalent of the Pope?

    If you replace “Communist” with “Islamist”, what we’re seeing here is a replay of the Cold War where the Soviets used “peace” rhetoric to mask their efforts to undermine the Western world. The difference then was the West had leaders who understood the other side was seeking to destroy our civilization, while Obama either favors our destruction or is oblivious to it.

  • The Jewish heart and mind is eternally connected to Jerusalem and Israel for thousands of years

    “For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’ ”

    “Every Jew has a spark in his soul from the light of God above that illuminates his way during difficult times. And when it seems to him that he is lost and that there is no way out, the spark flares and lights his way. This is the little jug of oil that is revealed in time to save the Jew in times of despair and to light up his life in desperate times.”

    “Let the world know that we were granted our right to exist by the God of our fathers at the glimmer of the dawn of human civilization 4,000 years ago. The Jewish people have a historic, eternal and inalienable right to the whole of the land of our forefathers. And for that right, which has been sanctified in Jewish blood from generation to generation, we have paid a price unprecedented in the annals of nations.”

    How many holidays do the Arabs-Muslims celebrate due to historical events in the land of ancient Israel and Jerusalem.
    The Jewish people celebrate most of their holidays and fast days in memory of Jerusalem and Israel and the goal and aspiration to return to Israel and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem – where it was before it was destroyed and desecrated by the enemies of the Jews.
    Many of the Jewish prayers for thousands of years recite the love of Israel and the Jewish aspirations to return to their ancestral land and bring back its glory and holiness.

    It is time to re-institute the teaching of the Jewish Bible in all Jewish Schools as was in Israel before 1987.
    Many of the Israelis today know nothing about our Jewish Heritage and history, it is due to the termination of studying the bible at all Jewish schools in Israel which was implemented by the than Israeli education minister in 1987.

      “Salvation is of the Jews”, i cannot remember a time when the Jewish people and the Christians in this world did not support each other through thick and thin. I would say to our Brothers and Sisters in Israel, that there are a lot more of the American people that are sided with you and Bibi, than there is with Obama and John Kerry in this ignorant agreement. Just hand in there, all will be according to God’s will. It’s kind of hard to sit back and watch this dance being done, without wanting to shout at them and tell them that what they are doing will kill us all. Who but Satan, could pull something like this off in this world as it is. Heaven help us all…..
