After the Europeans pulled the plug on Iranian satellite transmissions because of the sanctions against Iran, Iranian stations are back on the air.

The Iranians have reportedly transferred their transmissions over to a Russian satellite, once again bypassing the sanctions against them.

The Wall Street Journal reports that up until October 15, IRIB (Iran’s broadcast company) was using the services of Eutelsat Communications for broadcasting.

Rather ironically, just a week earlier, Iran was jamming the signal from the Eutelsat satellite when it showed Iranian citizens protesting.

Iran has been jamming many satellite transmissions as of late, including those of Voice of America -Persion service, and BBC Persian.

    In Ukraine they are finishing counting their vote while opposition is correctly claiming a fraud. The kind and cause of this fraud can be better understood looking on century old case of Sigismund von Unruh.

    While both Israeli and American nations are still before the vote. Sigismund case has again returned to the streets of Brussels , heart of Europe.

    But for Zion at the East things on the street and in governmental cabinets are quite same. We are easily kicked out, when Israel turns hostile trying to commit national suicide. Something that EU shall and must be preventing. Even if our friends are not able to understand this…
