Fact Check: Assessing Trump’s Criticisms of Iran and the Nuclear Deal

“Any attempt to renege or decertify or impose sanctions again has a tremendously negative impact on the current moderates in Iran” who support Mr. Rouhani and, in turn, would fuel hard-liners, Mr. Amanat said.Mr. Trump misled about the deal’s “immediate financial boost” to Iran.Mr. Trump claimed that the deal gave Iran “over $100 billion its government could use to fund terrorism” and a “massive cash settlement of $1.7 billion.” The diplomatic agreement did not cut Iran a check, but it did release about $100 billion in previously Iranian frozen assets. Much of the amount is tied up in debt obligations. For example, $20 billion is owed to China for financing projects in Iran. Estimates for the actual amount available to Iran range from $35 billion to $65 billion.The Obama administration did transfer $1.7 billion to Iran, but Mr. Trump’s statement requires more context. The money — delivered in cash, some on a plane — was payment for a decades-long dispute and was indirectly linked to the nuclear deal.Before the 1979 revolution, Iran’s shah had paid $400 million for American military goods but, after he was overthrown, they were never delivered […]

Israeli Aid Gives an Unexpected ‘Glimmer of Hope’ for Syrians

“The aid creates a positive awareness of Israel on the Syrian side,” said Col. Barak Hiram, the commanding officer of Israel’s 474 Golan Brigade, adding that it could lay the “first seeds” of some form of future agreement.Most of the supplies are donated by Israeli and foreign nongovernmental organizations, while the Israeli government has footed the bill for medical treatment. According to the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees, a New York-based network of organizations involved in the aid effort, Israel has also become an efficient, if unlikely, staging area for Syrian aid groups operating abroad that, facilitated by the Israeli military, are now shipping goods into Syria through Israeli ports.The extent of the project became known days after the United States and Russia announced a cease-fire agreement for southern Syria, territory that includes the areas covered by Operation Good Neighbor, and after President Trump’s cancellation of the clandestine and failing American program to provide arms and supplies to Syrian rebel groups.PhotoIsraeli military medics assisting wounded Syrians in April.Credit Dusan Vranic/Associated PressPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking to Israeli reporters during a trip to Europe this week, said he was utterly opposed to the cease-fire deal because of concerns that it would allow Shiite militias backed by Israel’s archenemy, Iran, to dig in close to its borders.“Netanyahu is upset because the Jordanians were told that the Shiite militias would be kept 40 kilometers from their border,” said Ehud Yaari, an Israeli analyst and fellow of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Israel did not get the same promise. We were left out.”But discussions about the cease-fire are continuing, Mr. Yaari said, and the Israeli protests seemed aimed at trying to shape the outcome.Israel says it maintains a policy of nonintervention in Syria’s civil war, which began in 2011.
