US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley singles out Iran in New Year’s message

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday Iran's government is "being tested by its own citizens" after three days of protests against the clerical regime.

"We hope that the South and North can sit face-to-face and discuss the participation of the North Korean delegation at the Pyeongchang Games as well as other issues of mutual interest for the improvement of inter-Korean ties", Cho said at a press conference. The demonstrations are completely spontaneous.

Haley declared that the protest are in "virtually in every city in Iran" and that they are calling for the "freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter". "This is the precise picture of a long oppressed peoples rising up against their dictators". "Dozens have already been killed. Let go of the country, '" she added.

"We pray that freedom and human rights will carry the day", she said in a statement.

She also urged the worldwide community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran.

"We must not be silent".

"As to President Trump and all those who love freedom, we should speak loudly in support of the Iranian people and punish their oppressors to the fullest extent possible", Graham said. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", she said.

Opposition pushes to send Triple Talaq to select committee
The bill was passed after the House rejected a series of amendments moved by various opposition members. Any Muslim woman subjected to instant talaq can approach a Court of Magistrate and seek redressal.

Goldstein's and Haley's remarks follow a series of tweets by President Donald Trump over the holiday weekend in which he praised the protesters, blasted the Iranian government and criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for failing to actively support the last major protests in Iran. "We expect that the rights to peaceful assembly and expression of the Iranian people will be respected", Farhan Haq told reporters.

But, she said, it depends on Palestinian cooperation. South Korea proposed holding high-level talks with Pyongyang, after the North's leader Kim Jong-un said Pyongyang might attend the Winter Olympics.

The law would require a vote of two-thirds of the Knesset (Israel's parliament) in order to sanction a division of Jerusalem in any future peace agreement with the Palestinians.

Haley added that the General Assembly's vote condemning the announced US embassy move to Jerusalem made a serious impression. "To that end, tomorrow night we are having a reception for the countries who chose not to oppose the USA position", Haley said.

Here are the messages that they're chanting today: "All these brigades have come out to the streets". "They work with us at times, and they also harbour the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan".

"In recent events, the enemies of Iran united by using different tools in their disposition, including money, weapons, politics and intelligence, in order to create problems for the Islamic system", Khamenei said in comments posted on his official website.
