Tehran, Iran  – Iran said Saturday it helped broker the surprise release of Thai nationals who had been held by Palestinian militants in war-ravaged Gaza since their shock attack on Israel last month.

Iran trying to look good.

Trying to keep themselves from being bombed back to the stone age, I am sure Israel will get to them as soon as they are finished with Hamas and Hezbollah. Unlike the terrorist groups, Iran is a country, they won't be hiding in tunnels with civilians as shields.

Oh you poor gullible boy, believing that Iran, who hell bent on the destruction of Israel, pour billions to finance and upkeep many terrorists groups around the world didn't know about the attack, people like you and many others like you, are the reason why despotic, tyrannical regimes are still in power... 

 

Good for Thai hostages that are/will be free!!!

"According to an unnamed Egyptian source quoted in London-based pan-Arab news site Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Thursday, Hamas is also set to release 23 Thai hostages following Iranian mediation between the Palestinian terror group and Bangkok.

 

Iran has provided Bangkok with details on the condition of the Thai abductees set to be released. Bangkok says it believes 26 of its citizens were abducted on October 7.

 

The deal is separate from the Qatar-mediated temporary truce between Israel and Hamas set to go into effect Friday at 7 a.m."

Are you that dense I need to attach the article again?

 

You obviously are, so here goes. https://www.iranintl.com/en/202201038619

 

 

Your source is too biased to be neutral. Now you've copied other posters their links...

Just say you have no clue at all, its fine....oh Sungod (+LOL)

 

Quote from source :

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_International

 

"According to Middle East Eye, Iran International is a media platform for the Iranian opposition.[29] Kourosh Ziabari of Al-Monitor wrote it "does not shy away from presenting itself as an opposition media organization" and frequently gives the microphone to guests who criticize the Iranian government.[30] The channel has been referred to as an "Iranian exile news outlet" by Borzou Daragahi of The Independent.[31]

The channel is known for raising the profile of Reza Pahlavi, the last heir apparent to the former Iranian throne, by constant coverage and repeatedly interviewing him.[29] It also airs coverage of People's Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), including live broadcast of their rallies."

It is not US taxpayer money.

 

Some funding released is part of Iranian funds frozen years ago. No international law allows such seizure indefinitely.

 

Other funds involved Iraq money for electricity generated by Iranian gas. Without the transfer of Iran's funds for the gas, Iraq would go dark.

 

You may disagree with the transfers, but at least be honest about their source. It isn't your tax dollars.

I am not American, so, yes, they are not my tax dollars.   But plenty of evidence (see the above link, one of  hundreds) that mainly American (but also European) dollars/euros are being funnelled to Hamas (aka Palestine).

UNRWA alone receives nearly $100 million per annum from the American taxpayer.

When you have nothing, blame the messenger

 

 The U.S. State Department has said that Iran provides up to $100 million annually in support to Palestinian groups including Hamas, and has cited methods of moving the money through shell companies, shipping transactions and precious metals.

https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/hamas-cash-to-crypto-global-finance-maze-israels-sights-2023-10-16/

 

 Last year, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh told Al Jazeera that Iran paid $70 million to the group to support its defense plan.

I didn't blame the messenger. The messenger his "credible links" were not reliable and too biased. It's based on Iranian opposition and I could not trace it on "mediabiasfactcheck" too. So I didn't blame anybody. I just pinpointed that the sources used are not reliable for me.

 

Writing : "Just say you have no clue at all, its fine..." without providing feedback or response to my post and not adding reliable links is...rather contradicting yourself. (LOL)
