End of Trump era proved bullying is ‘of no avail’

Addressing the weekly Cabinet session on Wednesday, Rouhani likened the Trump administration’s last days to the ending days of the Pahlavi dynasty in Iran in 1979, saying, “The end of a government with shame and scandal shows that bullying, racism and breaking the law will not end well.”

The president said as we are approaching the 41st anniversary of the Pahlavi dynasty’s overthrow, “We are witnessing a similar incident in another part of the world.”

“The flee of Iran’s Shah on Jan. 16, 1979, was a symbol of scandal and shame for foreign tyranny and colonization in Iran, and today we are observing the fall of another dictator on the other side of the world – in the United States,” Rouhani said.

The president noted, “During these last three years, the Iranian nation resisted against this big terrorist [Trump], and despite the fact that they [Americans] had plotted to overthrow the Iranian establishment within three months, they themselves were toppled with scandal and shame.”

He said these days not only show the end of a bully government but also reveal the failure of a policy, that is, the policy of maximum pressure against the great nation of Iran.

The is the end of “a president, who did not have a political understanding, and an idiot Secretary of State and an ignorant extremist national security adviser who stood by him,” Rouhani underlined.

He concluded, “Today is the day of the defeat of the policy of economic terrorism, which wanted to ruin the lives of the Iranian people.”

Persian leopard spotted in mountains of Qzvin

Persian leopard spotted in mountains of Qzvin

According to Mehdi Taheri, this is the first time that the panther is spotted in the current year, and before that its footprints were found in the region.

Back in April 2020, three Persian leopards and a Pallas cat have been spotted in the mountainous habitats of Firouzkuh county, the northeastern part of the capital Tehran. At the time, the camera footages raised hopes for the survival of the species in this habitat.

Persian leopard and Pallas cat are listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List.

The Persian leopard is a leopard population distributed in the Caucasus from Southern Russia to Iran, Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. It forms the subspecies Panthera pardus tulliana together with the Anatolian leopard population in Turkey.

According to the Department of Environment, 156 leopards have been killed in Iran from 2005 to 2014, nearly 20 leopards a year. Studies indicate that currently there are less than 500 leopards nationwide.

Persian leopards are mainly threatened by poaching, depletion of their prey base due to poaching, human disturbances, habitat loss due to deforestation, fire, agricultural expansion, overgrazing, and infrastructure development.

In Iran, primary threats are habitat disturbances followed by illegal hunting and excess of livestock in the leopard habitats. The leopards’ chances for survival outside protected areas appear very slim.
