BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected the US offer to hold talks with Iran, saying “I address the people on the matter in a few words: There will be no war, nor will we negotiate with the US,” during a speech at Imam Khomeini’s Hosseinieh in Tehran, Sunday.

Khamenei stated that the “Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian nation are a collective. If anybody invades it, it [Iran and its nation] might strike it, but the point is that it itself [they who invade Iran] will receive a greater impact, as it has been until now.”

“Negotiations with a highly demanding regime and a bullying one like the US are not a tool to decrease hostility, negotiation is not a tool to lessen hostilities with the US, but negotiation is a tool in its hands to impose hostility,” Khamenei stated.

Iranians are pro-Israel, only the regime and its cronies are anti-Zionist

The problem with the Middle East is two Warmongers, Nutty and House of Saud. Nutty has been on a war PR campaign forever. Regime change in Israel not Iran. Nutty seeks enemies under every rock.

Khamenei created ISIS and is regime threaten to destroy Israel on a regular basis while he funds and arms Heb and Hamas to the teeth. Nasrallah just threatened to invade Israel a few hours ago. Bibi simply has to maintain the readiness : anti-Semitism scores a 74% of MENA’s population, add to this te backing of ALL western neo-Nazis/Fascists. If Bibi was a warmonger, he woud have taken profit of the SHTF in Syria and he wouldn’t stop firing when Hamas reloads. He’d also take profit of Hezb deployments in Syria to crush’em in Lebanon and would sink South-Pars and… Read more »

Iran became a real obstacle to JUSA on the way to confront Russia. Plan was after Syria, Iran to be destroyed. After Iran, guess what – Russia’s turn was coming. Well, Putin put a big stick in to the wheel of Pentagon. Wish or not, Iran will stand now and forever!

You may end with serious surprises… Take a look at where Russia deploys her anti-ballistic missiles since territory is far too big to have a full coverage, so underpopulated and non strategic areas have near no such defences, and you’ll get who makes the Kremlin nervous… Strangely, these AREN’T placed where they may have to confront a NATO or Chinese attack… These are placed to intercept ballistic missiles coming from North-Korea and… Iran! Moreover, since there is a Qatar-Iran-Turkey nat-gas pipeline on the table in order to sell to the EU energy market which is the #1 on Earth, such… Read more »

Mon ami, do the French, main stream & Résistance, now realize that they were servants and mercenaries of the thalassocracy in both World wars?

p.s. Except the Milice not to mention the men Leclerc murdered. They knew this at least during WW II. Blink.

3 minions of the thalassocracian capital voted You down.
Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.

Leclerc murdered no one. Some zealous officer decided to execute 12 French Waffen-SS traitors, that’s all… These weren’t the only traitors that got extra-judicial executions during this era… “do the French, main stream & Résistance, now realize that they were servants and mercenaries of the thalassocracy in both World wars?” => I think De Gaulle always have been clear about this and laid the foundations to get rid of it, but… do the Germans, main stream & brown shirts, now realise they were servants and mercenaries of the thalassocracy from 1933 onto 2017 when the EU threatened to sanction USA… Read more »

Yes, this is the plan for quite some time. All the Iran overtures and the ’53 overthrow were tactics of this goal even then. The Zionists are still pissed that Russia came to US aid against Britain during the civil war. Then they eliminated the Romanovs and tried to destroy Russia from the inside. All their plans have failed. This one will too. Russia, Iran and China will prevail…and Israel the w***e will be a memory.

A wise man. He clearly sees that a war can only play into the hands of Trump. And he also sees that giving into the current US demands will make the Yanks hungry for more concessions.

p.s. Iranians gave up the uranium enriching for the deal. They kept their bargain.

And now the Yanks behave like a bunch of hooked-nosed Levant merchants of Mosaic religion who want to renegotiate a deal.

So wise that to celebrate his rise to supreme power and life-term dictator of Iran, he had 30,000 political prisoners executed… It’s wise to kill the opposition when you’re a dictator. He’s so wise he had the Houthi starting the Yemen war to divert attention of IRGC making Iraq and Syria becoming his puppets, thanks to ISIS actions. He’s so wise he applied Machiavelli’s explanations about Alexander the Great that made him create ISIS for the same purpose Alexander created his own enemies, but enemies all others would fight for him, then become weak at doing it while Alexander stood… Read more »

What Mr. Khamaney is not aware of is that the USA don’t want to negotiate and don’t either want to attack Iran with bombs. The USA only want to keep political pressure and distance and prevent Iran from building its own civil nuclear technology! The USA strategists are aware that Iran doesn’t seek military nuclear technology, but they don’t care. They only want to prevent the civil nuclear technology, because without that Iran won’t be able to frack out its gas and oil, particularly from South Pars field between Qatar and Iran. The reason is, that under political pressure and… Read more »

Dear Al Masdar News, I would like to post some of my articles on Your website. They are now published on 3 German and 1 English platforms. The English versions of my articles are now published on Veteranstoday.com. I assume You know this website. You may search for the keyword “Enkidu” to find them there. Particularly the article about Iran would be very helpful to decode the current tensions between the USA and Iran and how the US corporations are plundering Iranian gas reserves in the Persian Gulf. Why Iran needs the atom-bombs? Not for war or deterrence, but for… Read more »

Bah, as any Ayatollah, he’s a specialist of taqiyya and kitman… So we have to assume anything he says are lies and exactly the countrary will happen… I bet on his retirement in Qatar, in the same condo-block as Mashal and al-Douri, maybe are there other well known ones as neighbours here but I’m not sure… Maybe al-Zawahiri, al-Baghdadi… Who knows, since the Saddam that was hanged was in fact one of is look-alikes (look at is teeth! These weren’t aligned! Real Saddam had perfect aligned teeth!). Even Osama’s death was dubious… Sad all these roaches hate music : they… Read more »
