Iranians Protest Trump's Withdrawal From Nuclear Deal

But Bolton didn't rule out sanctions for European companies doing business with Iran. She called on "responsible nations" to pressure Iran to "change this unsafe behavior".

Tehran, which has sought to avoid an escalation in regional conflict that could alienate its European partners, has not commented on whether its forces were hit. Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, former research chief at Military Intelligence, told the newspaper Haaretz that the deal gave Israel a vital window to focus "on more urgent threats" in Syria, where Iran is trying to build military installations that threaten Israel.

President Trump made a historically correct decision but the Iranian people must also take action to get their country back. While both Saudi Arabia and Israel have welcomed Trump's decision to come out of the deal, the European powers issued a statement expressing "regret and concern" over the development and their "continuing commitment" to the deal overseen by them. That should help Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation financially as they get more money per barrel of crude on the worldwide spot markets.

Iran denies that version of events, saying the Israeli strikes were launched on "invented pretexts".

Days after the United States president walked away from a three-year-old deal that mandated rigorous scrutiny of Iranian facilities, senior administration officials said monitoring should continue regardless.

"Since the signing of the JCPOA (nuclear deal), we have gone from an atmosphere like a gold rush, to one of utter depression", said a Western trade diplomat on condition of anonymity.

Although most analysts believe the USA withdrawal has effectively scuppered the agreement, Iran's foreign minister talked up the prospects of its survival on Sunday while visiting China, another of the signatories. Ripping-up the JCPOA deal makes this policy choice clear.

"It is not solving any of our problems", she added.

Le Maire said he was seeking concrete exemptions for countries already present in Iran, including Renault, Total, Sanofi, Danone and Peugeot.

Iran said it may resume uranium enrichment in a higher rate in weeks if it finds the nuclear deal will not work anymore after the United States pullout from the deal.

Demonstrators rallied in Tehran following Friday prayers to protest Trump's move.

Israel recently uncovered a treasure trove of Iranian documents certifying their nuclear intentions and displaying before the world Iran's bold-faced lies of claiming no nuclear intent.

Hardline lawmakers, who were against the JCPOA from the outset and have, time and again, said ironically that the "deal was ratified in the Parliament in 20 minutes", are seizing the opportunity nowadays to settle their political scores with the government.

Analysts said Iran was determined to maintain the moral high ground in the coming weeks. But with the United States planning to re-impose sanctions, its prospects are not good.

But how? All of this needs to be organized into a recognizable and achievable policy, and it needs the support of allies who opposed Trump's decision to revoke the deal. Or they can intensify their campaigns of asymmetrical warfare, using groups such as Hezbollah, while also secretly resuming work on a bomb.
