We’re walking all the way down an abyss, walking a tightrope. The German government, especially Chancellor Scholz and Foreign Minister Baerbock, want to support the protests in Iran symbolically, by mutual condemnation, as EU sanctions against the morality police and their alleged EU luxury shopping visits. But both in the USA under Biden, Germany under Baerbock and Scholz, the general line is that one sticks to the Iranian regime in order to get an Iran deal, which, due to the lifting of sanctions, gives Iran more opportunity to continue to fight aggressive expansion wars like in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen that one might hope to curb through counteractions by the USA, the Gulf States and Israel, but a new and completely different story is what the SPD party leader, Esken, is now demanding. One should end the talks about the Iran deal as the actual sanction because of the suppression of women—that’s much more far-reaching than a few selective entry bans for moral police officers who probably won’t go shopping in Europe at all – or if it’s their wives..-Yes we should ask whether Iran should be allowed another 10 years of missile programs and foreign policy expansion, or whether they want to accept a treaty that says Iran will not have a nuclear weapon for 10 years, and then after the treaty expires and gains were made in the Shiite crescent will become the nuclear power Islamic Republic of Iran.
SPD chairwoman: Esken calls for end of talks on nuclear deal with Iran Updated on 17.10.2022-02:45 Because of the authorities‘ crackdown on the protests in Iran, the talks must be stopped immediately, the party leader demands: „So far and no further.“ The party objects. SPD leader Saskia Esken has called for an end to the talks on the nuclear deal with Tehran because of the authorities‘ crackdown on the protests in Iran. Now the moment has come „to say clearly: up to here and no further,“ said Esken on the ZDF program „Berlin direct“ on Sunday. „The talks must end in the way that the women and men on the streets are being dealt with at the moment.“ Opposition came from her own party. Nils Schmidt, foreign policy spokesman for the SPD, said on the show that „this has nothing to do with responsible foreign policy“. Iran would threaten Israel and regional stability with nuclear bombs. In addition, an arms race would have to be feared, said Schmidt. Iran has been rocked by mass protests for weeks, against which the Iranian authorities are using violence. Hundreds of people were arrested and dozens more were killed, according to human rights groups. The protests in Iran were triggered by the death of the young Kurd Mahsa Amini. The 22-year-old died in Tehran on September 16 after being arrested there three days earlier by the vice squad on charges of not wearing her headscarf in accordance with regulations. USA participates only indirectly Nuclear talks between Germany, Russia, China, France and Britain with Iran have been stuck for months. The United States is only indirectly involved in negotiations to revive the 2015 nuclear deal. The agreement was intended to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons. Under the then US President Donald Trump, the US unilaterally withdrew from the agreement in 2018 and imposed massive new sanctions on Iran. As a result, Tehran also gradually withdrew from its obligations under the agreement.
In any case, it is interesting how Esken’s demands is deliberately kept secret and, apart from the FAZ, is not quoted or published at all on German awareness-raising media, that Annalena is currently trying to prevent the image of the strict German moral police towards the Mullahs by sanctioning a few moral guardians and making an Iran deal for the stability recurs and is not ready to enter into a new crisis, o now because of waves of refugees, because of direct military threats, because of energy prices and the Persian Gulf, yes, the Iran deal is the main maximum, demand under which feminist foreign policy or other options would have to be subordinated.But realpolitics is: Iran deal first, everything else! Regime change- maybe the next time, as the Jerusalem Post says. That´s why we won´t hear about Esken´s proposal anymore. B They all want the Iran deal, but nobody wants to be held responsible if the Iran deal doesn´t materialisze.
