Thursday, May 17, 2018 – Phone Seminar with Dr. David Wurmser

On May 8th, President Trump withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and outlined the next steps regarding Iran.  The President directed his Administration to immediately begin the process of re-imposing sanctions related to the JCPOA, targeting critical sectors of Iran’s economy, such as its energy, petrochemical, and financial sectors.  Companies doing business in Iran will be provided a period of time to allow them to wind down operations in or business involving Iran, but those who fail to do so will risk severe consequences.  It is hoped that the United States’ withdrawal from the JCPOA will pressure the Iranian regime to alter its course of malign activities and ensure that Iranian bad acts are no longer rewarded.

The European nations and Iran claim that they will continue the deal.  But if the U.S. re-imposes sanctions on the Iranians, and on companies that work with the Iranians, will this succeed?  And will Iran continue its aggression throughout the Middle East, and its support of terrorism?

Entities behind Iranian ballistic missile tests to be delisted by the JCPOA

On July 14, 2015 the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was announced between the P5 + 1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran. The document outlined the terms of the deal, which included some incremental dismantling of Iran’s nuclear program, and in return provided billions in released frozen funding to Iran and a waiver of many international sanctions on its nuclear program. This 159-page document contained a “Specially Designated Nationals” (SDN) list of pages and pages of individuals and entities that will be relieved from previously instituted nuclear sanctions. A majority of those listed on the SDN list will be delisted after Implementation Day. Most disturbingly, among those that will be delisted are a number of entities that are instrumental to the development of the Iranian ballistic missile program, and involved in the two recent ballistic missile tests that Iran conducted which violated international law.

Killing Over Cartoons Is Totally Rational, Says John Kerry

“There’s something different about what happened [in the November 13, 2015 Paris terror attacks] from [the January 7, 2015 terror attack targeting the French magazine] Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, November 17, 2015
