Treasury Announces New Sanctions Against Iran
Actions Target Irans Nuclear and Missile Proliferation Activities
WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of the Treasury is taking action today against 20 individuals and entities for their involvement in Irans nuclear and missile proliferation networks and Irans continued attempts to circumvent sanctions. These networks are responsible for moving supplies and providing essential services to Irans clandestine nuclear and weapons programs. These actions are designed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime by tightening sanctions against Irans energy sector and exposing key proliferation related networks that span the globe from Europe to Asia.

“DFS Worldwide, Everex, and Aban Air: IRGC shipping ops worldwide”
May 28, 2013
SNIPPET: “The US Treasury recently imposed sanctions on these companies and individuals involved in their operations. Aban Air works in cooperation with previously sanctioned Iran Air and Mahan Air in support of the IRGC’s weapons trafficking operations. Everex handled the cargo, and when they started to feel the heat Everex became DFS Worldwide. Ali Mahdavi is identified as the head of all three operations.
The Aban Air website has disappeared, and the Everex site is “undergoing maintenance”, but DFS Worldwide is alive and well online (for now):”
Ouch - that’ll sting.
Maybe we should call them names, too.
Nyah, nyah, Iran!!!

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 9 (UPI) —
SNIPPET: “A few weeks ago, British arms-trafficking investigators said they had found evidence that Tehran has been secretly shipping arms and ammunition to Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, the Ivory Coast and South Sudan — all African states plagued by conflict.”
SNIPPET: “In recent months, Iranian operations, some involving agents of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Iran’s powerful surrogate in the Levant, have been uncovered in India, Nepal, Thailand, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Cyprus and elsewhere, underlining Iran’s global reach.”

Alleged member of Hezbollah arrested here

The FBI has arrested a San Antonio man on charges that he lied to get into the United States and tried to get a sensitive Defense Department position.
Wissam Allouche, 44, appeared for an initial hearing Friday afternoon, and shook his head when U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad read the charges leveled in a federal indictment. The judge ordered him held pending a bail hearing and his arraignment on Tuesday.
He allegedly tried to cover up his affiliation with Hezbollah, said special agent Erik Vasys, spokesman for the FBI in San Antonio. It is believed he was looking to secure a sensitive position with the U.S. government at some point.
The indictment said Allouche had married a U.S. citizen and was going through the naturalization process. During that process, he reportedly lied when asked if he had ever been a member of or associated with a terrorist organization, the indictment said.
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force alleges he was a fighter with the Amal militia in Lebanon in the early to mid-1980s. After his release as an Israeli prisoner of war, he was made a commander of the Amal militia, who was notified about the group’s operations, the indictment said. News reports at the time said Hezbollah was formed by religious members of the Amal movement.

(May 21, 2013)
SNIPPET: Their website is not particularly interesting, but came to our attention due to one of their domains being registered to Hizballah-linked Rakeem.net in Beirut, despite the organization being based in West Africa.
Oh, no, those Iranians are really in trouble now — NOT. The U.S. government is doing everything it can to protect Iran and facilitate them getting a nuclear weapon.
Yep, that'll learn em, won't it?
