EDITOR’S NOTE – though originally published two years ago, Iran is STILL getting bombarded by “mother nature”… Or is it? Iran has seen a HUGE growth in Christianity in the same time period – is their Allah seeking retribution? If he is then why are the Christians, for the most part, protected in spite of all this?

Some of the most recent headlines (and links)…

There’s a water shortage in Iran as temperatures hit 120F. Security forces are firing on protesters to stop demonstrations

26-July-2021view full story here archive

  • Blazing heat and water shortages hit Iran in July, especially in the province of Khuzestan.

  • The situation prompted protests from angry locals, which have been harshly suppressed.

  • Reports say Iranian security forces used live ammunition and killed at least 8 people.

Iranian security fired live rounds at protestors amid water shortages and soaring temperatures, a human rights group and media reports say.

The protests began in the arid, oil-rich province of Khuzestan on July 15 amid weeks-long water shortages, and have since spread to other regions.

The temperature in Ahvaz, Khuzestan, was 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 Celsius) on Monday afternoon, with a predicted overnight temperature of 99F. The outlook is similar all week.


Iran hits new COVID infection record for 2nd straight day

27-July-2021 | view full story here archive

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran recorded over 34,900 new coronavirus infections on Tuesday, setting the nation’s single-day record for cases as vaccinations lag, public complacency deepens and the country’s outbreak spirals further out of control.

The previous record of 31,814 infections had been set only a day earlier, providing a sense of how quickly Iran’s latest surge, fueled by the contagious delta variant, is mounting. Health authorities recorded 357 COVID-19 fatalities on Tuesday, bringing the total death toll to 89,479 — the highest in the Middle East.

The alarming spread of the variant prompted new anti-virus restrictions last week. The government ordered the closure of state offices, public places and non-essential businesses in the capital of Tehran. But as with previous government measures, the lockdown looked very little like a lockdown at all. Tehran’s malls and markets were busy as usual and workers crowded offices and metro stations.


Flooding leaves 5 dead, injured in 7 provinces

“Relief and rescue forces provided services to 846 flood survivors,” ISNA quoted Mohammad Hassan Qousian as saying on Tuesday.

Currently, relief operations have been completed in five provinces, but continue in Qazvin and Zanjan provinces, he stated.

Over the last two years, Iran was doused with rain which was unprecedented during the past 50 years, but last year, unfortunately, the country faced drought, which shows a 40 percent decrease in rainfall.

Watershed management is a solution to strengthen the ecosystem in the face of subsequent droughts by penetrating rainfall into the ground.


As water table lowers, Tehran and much of Iran are slowly sinking

Pari Rahmanian and her daughters were sitting down to dinner in her brother’s third-floor apartment in south Tehran when the ground began to move.

“There was just this rumbling sound. I raced to my daughters to get them out. I was sure it was an earthquake,” Rahmanian, 47, said. When she got to the hallway she realized what actually was happening: The building was settling in shifting soil.

“I’ve never seen anything like that before,” Rahmanian said of the structure, which authorities deemed unsafe to reenter. “It’s no joke. You lose everything you have in seconds.”


Peter’s original post starts here…

Horrific weather, strong earthquakes happening simultaneously in Iran are devastating an already devastated country — will the Iranian government do anything to provide for its own people from Mother Nature’s fury?

 

Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, Has Visited Iranian Leaders

Occurred shortly after a visit from President Donald Trump to Japan one of the world’s closest US allies (BBC archive).

The timing of this trip, according to the press, is no coincidence but is designed to ease tensions between the USA and Tehran as Japan are trusted by both administrations and are well placed to mediate between the two.

Irrespective of the success or not of the Abe visit, it may prove irrelevant as other factors will undoubtedly impact and affect the role that Iran may play in future geopolitical events.

Decisions regarding political and military expansionism and how to counter both external and internal opposition could be determined by Mother Nature.

Indeed this is probably already happening and yet seemingly ignored by the professional pundits.

Iran Suffered an Earthquake of 7.3 Magnitude (Nov 2017)

The scale of the devastation to infrastructure and the loss of life and injuries ensured that this colossal quake made global media headlines (BBC archive).

As with many natural disasters, after less than a week the world moved on to report other issues and media reporting on the aftermath became scarce.

Rebuilding and damage repair for the Iranian authorities became impossibly difficult not only because of weather, impassable terrain, and lack of competent human resources but also as sanctions (RadioFarda archive) on Iran ensured the cost of raw materials necessary continued to rise to unprecedented levels.

The paradox that Iran is able to sponsor military expansionism but unable to fund reconstruction for its indigenous population after a natural disaster did not go unnoticed by Iranians and several protests subsequently gained momentum but were quelled by the authorities (NYT [behind pay wall]) — 25 Iranians killed and 4,000 arrested was no ordinary protest.

News On Iran Consistently Ignores the Plight of the Iranian People

Iran is very rarely off our News Channels these days, not due to natural disasters but as a result of Iran’s desire for nuclear arms and their expansionist Middle East policy relevant to Yemen, Syria, Hizbollah, and Hamas with the U.S., Saudi counter challenge to the Iranian regime.

Reports of wider conflict, Trumps’s breaking of the Paris accord and Iranian expansion in the region take up much media time, follow-up commentary, and studio debate.

Given the high-profile position Iran has acquired in the western media, it is somewhat perplexing given the importance of climate change that no TV news has been devoted to the recent devastating floods in Iran (BBC archive).

Dozens of people have been killed, thousands displaced and evacuated, rivers and dams have burst, hundreds of bridges and roads destroyed, and numerous villages beyond the point of reconstruction (al Jazeera archive).

How is it that such a natural catastrophe relating to one of the most prolific countries exposed to global and western media has managed to avoid anything other than tenuous media attention?

Damage to Iranian Infrastructure and Economy Is Intense

The damage to Iranian infrastructure is so immense that normal trade for daily consumer goods has been made impossible throughout the country.

Reports from the Iran friendly al Jazeera archive have been sparse but incredibly have reported devastation of such severity, suggest that even if no further heavy rains occurred reconstruction would take decades.

The number of bridges destroyed has ranged from 200 to 725 and the estimated cost of repairs is $2 billion.

There is no reason to doubt the devastation to the internal infrastructure within Iran caused by mother nature.

If one considers the sanctions archive imposed on Iran by the U.S. Administration together with recent internal issues it is obvious that the current Iranian government are under severe pressure domestically to satisfy those directly impacted by the turmoil, exacerbated by external factors.

Their economy archive is suffering as sanctions bite.

Oil exports are falling, unemployment is high and getting worse, consumer goods are rising and the local currency is in free-fall further increasing the price of products.

The Iranian Riyal is decreasing in value and locals do not want to be paid in Riyals in the knowledge that the currency will buy them fewer consumer goods next week than this week.

Foreign currency revenues in dollars are dwindling since the sanctions and obviously imported goods necessary for rebuilding, reconstruction and everyday life are becoming increasingly expensive.

The transfer of US dollars via any type of payment system such as SWIFT is under the sanctions banner and therefore not permissible.

The attempt by Iranian friendly Europeans to implement a Euro funds transfer system, INSTEX (RadioFarda archive), has faded as the European Union understand it would be subject to US sanctions irrespective that the Iranians do not have the technical competencies nor infrastructure to create the necessary mirror system to enable such financial transactions.

How long can the regime continue in power when it is apparent that the country both economically and socially is experiencing such enormous devastation and turmoil?

Moreover, can Iran continue with its expansionist policies and ideology in funding and supporting the Houthis in Yemen, Assad in Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hams in Gaza while being unable to satisfy and support its domestic population?

Will Mother Nature do what military might and political will have so far failed to do for those opposed to the Iranian totalitarian theocracy?

Actions Against Iran Has 2 Fronts

Paradoxically, it is not only the Trump Administration that seeks to limit Iranian designs.

Russia too is exceptionally aware that Iran has to have her wings clipped as recent Russian actions against Iran [link unavailable] [registration requried] have been highlighted.

Putin’s understanding of Israel’s red lines coincides with Russia’s desire to ensure that Iranian influence is diluted. Having assisted Syria, and Russia in maintaining Assad in power.

Iran has acted as Russia’s puppet – thanks very much for your efforts, your work is now done now go back home.

Another unexpected and unpalatable negative consequence for Iran directly resulting from the floods has been the necessity to recall Iranian militias archive from conflict zones to assist with the reconstruction activities.

Undoubtedly, the need for Iran to relocate front-line militias from Syria clearly weakens both her military and political objectives and after all her investment in these areas the anticipated, political influential yield must seem exceptionally poor.

It may be that at some time these militias may be returned from whence they came but not only does Iran have to deal with reconstruction but also establish a firm hold on internal dissent.

The militias I suspect have been relocated to deal with this latter issue rather than bridge and road reconstruction for which they probably lack the necessary competencies.

Actually, Actions Against Iran Has 3 Fronts

Mother Nature has recently dealt Iran and her population some devastating blows which will surely have an impact on Iran’s ability to behave how she would like to behave politically and militarily.

Could it be that the weather will be the best weapon that those opposing Iran will be relying upon to limit the aims and objectives of the totalitarian theocracy causing so much global havoc?
