    On Nov. 5, 2018, the US sanctions became effective on Iran. The sanctions will definitely effect Iranian economy negatively despite some countries may find some way arounds but still the impact will be severe which is unfortunately a reality. However, Iran has been an active player in the middle-east so do you predict these sanctions will impact Iran's influence in the middle-east?

    Current regime in Iran is the main sponsor of terror, sectarianism and wars around the Middle East. The sooner it falls the better. Sanctions made this day little closer.

    Unfortunately it wont be soon. The global oil consumption will start to fall only by 2035.

    it will effect Iranian economy/common people, which may protests against Govt, however Iranian regime have done well in the past and survived such attempts. The regime have to counter negative propaganda and disinformation campaigns for 2 Years, if Democrats come to power they may lift the sanctions again. if Trump remain then it will be difficult for regime.

    You guys were terrorists when terrorism wasn't even a thing. The fact that you can open your mouth and talk about terrorism itself is ridiculous. Israel's illegal existence is based on terrorism and killing.

    22 July 1946, terror attack by Irgun terrorists (they later became a part of IDF in 1948 war):

    1938, June 19 18 Arabs killed (9 men, 6 women and 3 children), 24 injured by a bomb that was thrown into a crowded Arab market place in Haifa.​

    1938, July 6 18 Arabs and 5 Jews were killed by two simultaneous bombs in the Arab melon market in Haifa. More than 60 people were wounded. The toll over two days of riots and reprisals was 33 dead, 111 wounded

    1938, July 25 43 Arabs were killed by a bomb at a marketplace in Haifa.

    1938, August 26 24 Arabs were killed by a bomb at a marketplace in Jaffa.

    1939, February 27 33 Arabs were killed in multiple attacks, incl. 24 by bomb in Arab market in Suk Quarter of Haifa and 4 by bomb in Arab vegetable market in Jerusalem.

    1939, June 19 20 Arabs were killed by explosives mounted on a donkey at a marketplace in Haifa.

    1947, December 12 20 killed, 5 wounded by barrel bomb at Damascus Gate.​

    1948, January 5 14 Arabs killed and 19 injured by truck bomb outside the 3-storey 'Serrani', Jaffa's built Ottoman Town Hall

    1948, January 7 20 Arabs killed by bomb at Jaffa Gate.

    1948, April 9-April 11 107-120 Arabs killed and massacred (the estimate generally accepted by scholars, instead the first announced number of 254) during and after the battle at the village of Deir Yassin near Jerusalem, by 132 Irgun and 60 Lehi fighters.


    “The Irgun and Lehi were the first postmodern terrorist movements,” says Hoffman. “Especially the Irgun, primarily because of Begin’s strategy. Like all good underground leaders, Begin understood, even in an era long before 24/7 news, the power of appealing to a global audience with extreme and dramatic acts of violence.”​

    Never seen Iran attack any country or occupy it or threaten it.
