Eight European officials ask Trump to let EU firms do business with Iran

A letter signed by eight European officials that was published Wednesday asks the Trump administration to allow EU companies to continue doing business with Iran. “As allies, we expect that the United States to refrain from taking action to harm Europe’s security interests,” the ministers wrote in the letter addressed to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The letter was posted on the official Twitter page of French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire.

    Dear Iranian friends,

    Your great ayatollah does not tweet much, So, this is what you need to know: DO NOT SELL.
    After delivering the goods to EU, the Americans will seize the money.

      “As allies, we expect that the United States to refrain from taking action to harm Europe’s security interests,” When are the Europeans going to wake up to reality that they are now dealing with a great Trump that puts “American security and interest first!” ??

    The EU feels very confident that they have no enemies in the Islamic world. the EU elites hate America so much that I am not sure why America has any bases in Europe at all. Pull them all out now. Engage and do business only with countries that share Americas goals and want American-style freedom.

    The EU + Britain love and welcome terrorists to their countries, engage in supplying Iran and others with nuclear capabilities, wish to enrich a despicable Islamic regime that is engaged in killing coalition troops in Iraq and in wiping Israel off the map and involved in spreading jihad and war and antisemitism worldwide.

    If I were Trump, I would say, okay, you win EU, China and Russia, continue to do business with Iran but the US and Israel will bomb the profits away by targeting every shipment to Iran which threatens growth and expansion of the invading Islamic State of Iran.

    The best way to deal with Iran, as I have said, is steady bombardment of their international operations outside the border and inside the nuclear facilities which MUST be eliminated. The US and Trump deal-makers need to corner one power at a time and do deals which make sure that Iran and Russia are aligned with business in the US on a fair and level playing field. Israel should be the US’ top priority and together make Israel the best and most advanced country in the world just as it is today (only better).

    “As allies, we expect that the United States to refrain from taking action to harm Europe’s security interests,”

    This statement should be suffixed with

    “So let us continue to work with one of the world’s most dangerous regimes so our money can help destabilize the rest of the world”.

    What a bunch of morons.

    The EU has not forgotten what they did to the Jews between 1938 and 1945. They surely have forgotten who rebuilt their countries for them, but the hatred of the Jews still persists throughout the EU despite their denial. Money always was the top concern of all parties and the Jews were expendable. Where would they be without all the inventions to advance the modern world if they had succeeded in eliminating all the Jews.

    People do not matter, money does. Then we should do what we have to do without them. It they want to trade, then be forwarned that ships carrying cargo and sink and there will be no repayment for these goods, So can take their choices. When the muslim world bombs next, or tries to prevent free speech. Do not look to us to help them out. The choice was theirs.

        Amen Larry. Way past time for the US to pull out of NATO. If the US were attacked our so called NATO allies would not lift a finger to help us. Let the Euros defend themselves and sort out their own tribal conflicts in the next Euro war. Let the Mooslims have Western Europe. America needs to take care of its own.

      US saved Europe from fascism and Soviets and build it up after WW2. Europe became arrogant and forgott everything. So they will lose it and become 3rd world dominated by Muslims and totalitarian regimes like Iran. What for a bright future. Good night Europe.

      You mean: Europe is AYRAN civilization. By the way, the European aryan myth is proofen false. There is no connection between India and Europe. It is a constructed myth. Europe lost its cultural roots because of Roman imperialism and thus makes things up to creat such myths like Indo-European bs stories to compensate this, but it is nonsense.

    And why, pray tell, would the temporary loss of Iranian business harm Europe’s security? Were they planning on coming under the military umbrella of Ayatollah Khameini? It certainly isn’t the size of the trade.

    While I do not speak French fluently, . . . this one is really easy to correctly translate:

    “As allies, we expect that the United States to refrain from taking action to harm Europe’s security interests,” ………. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire.

    The truthful translation is: “Don’t mess with our gold mine, . . . we’re making money hand over fist, . . . and we don’t give a rat’s tail about the USA or Israel”.

    It is nothing but a cash cow to them. Pull out now, . . . let the ayatollahs have em all, . . . will make for setting the weapon sights easier next time.

    The EU is balancing the opulent lavish barbarism of Saudis who treat EU cities like their own turf. Versus the Iranian leadership who is respectful and dignitary. As far as charms are concerned the Saudis are like goats dressed in gold and no one wants them without an existential threat now that Israel and Saudis are openly conspiring. It is about EU security from that perspective.

      The Lord specifically gave the land of Israel to the Jews. However you have a good point about Europe, let the moslems have it, the euros deserve to become their slaves.

    EU should be expected not to trade with the Ayatollahs, not to harm the security of their US ally, and not support a genocidal regime. But given the corruption of EU, and their past against jews they can be expected not respect these expectations.

    It is not only money or economy it is fear.
    EUrope is sissy because of the high numbers of mudslimes who are already there, somehow embedded or “integrated” into society. Many of them, especially in Paris are easy to trigger by their mudslim religious leader to incite holy war and sabotage againast the host country. There are no border fences and a Paris terrorist could attack even Warsaw as there are border controls but the Polish border is very long and not as secured as in times of cold war. But also it is dangerous enough for the Paris terrorist to travel in the near attack there.
    Jews are told by their goverbments in EU better not to wear a Kipah as it could trigger assults.
    The whole policy of bigger EU states (Germany, France, UK) is policy of appeasement as one wants the mudslime “nationals” to vote for the ruling party and also to silence reasons for mudslime uprising. If the mudslimes in EU countries would become largely violent protection for the small ammount of rest Jews would be near zerro.
    So these countries like “good releationships” with their “partners” while beeing gradually conquered by mudslime migration and reproduction at high rate managing to sponsor up to 4 wifes with flats and food by social security of their host / victim country.

    Trick to make the state to pay for 4 wifes and kids is to marry with mullah 3 wifes and one also with the state. Then 3 wifes have a lot of children but “dont know” who is their father so social security pay for families of a mudslime mom and her bunch of kids.

    Making buisness with Iran is supporting terrorism. No way to allow this. Furthermore, Iran opnely declared that they see the West (includes Europe) as their enemies. Why Europe wants to support the enemy?!? Iran: “Death to USA, death to Europe.” Europe: “Can we help you?” – Europe is gone mad.
