Former Iranian Crown Prince Warns Biden Admin Not to Rejoin Nuclear Deal

 From Jeffrey Lord:

In a telling interview, the former crown prince of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, gave the Biden administration a crucial message: rejoining the Iran nuclear deal is a mistake. Pahlavi is the son of the late shah of Iran, who gave an interview to Israel Hayom published Sunday. In a nutshell, Pahlavi explains that the deal “will not happen.”

This is not a tactic, but a hatred that will not go away.” (Read more.)
