Iran: Embassy attack in Tehran leads to smear campaign against MEK

The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) has been caught publishing false information about the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) on a suspicious website called “Azariha website” on February 5, 2023.

The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) has been caught publishing false information about the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) on a suspicious website called “Azariha website” on February 5, 2023.

 

 

This action was taken in an effort to evade the implications of the conspiracy and crime committed at the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Tehran.

The article published by the website makes false claims about the attacker (Yasin Hosseinzadeh, known as Safar), and the relationship between the MEK and the Republic of Azerbaijan. The website alleges that the attacker suffered from a mental disorder and was engaged in smuggling activities related to the MEK and the Pan-Azeris. However, the MEK has no information or contact with Yasin Hosseinzadeh or his brother.

 

The birth certificate of Yasin Hosseinzadeh, which was published by the IRGC news agency, clearly states that he was born in 1969 and was a minor at the time of the revolution, and thus could not be a MEK affiliate.

The website also claims that the MEK has offices in Azerbaijan and that a member of the parliament of Azerbaijan, Saber Rostam Khanli, attended the annual meeting of the MEK in Albania and gave a speech in support of the organization. However, these claims are also false. The MEK does not have any offices or representation in Azerbaijan, and Mr. Saber Rostam Khanli did not attend the annual meeting of the MEK in Albania, nor did he give a speech. His message of support was given online in 2021.

The visit of the President of Azerbaijan to Albania was not related to the MEK. The MOIS’s claims about the relationship between the two countries and the MEK are unfounded. The Security and Counterterrorism Committee has demanded the presence of the representatives and lawyers of the Republic of Azerbaijan during the investigations into this case in Tehran, and the publication of the results of the investigations for public information.

It is evident that the MOIS is trying to spread false information in order to cover up the implications of the crime committed at the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Tehran. The Security and Counterterrorism Committee will ensure that the truth is brought to light.

Torching regime symbols in various cities on the anniversary of the anti-monarchy revolution.

 

 

On Friday evening, February 3, the 141st night of the nationwide uprising, residents in various neighborhoods of Tehran, including Narmak, Sohrvardi, Shahrak Bagheri, Shahrziba, and Shahrak Nagin Gharb, chanted slogans such as “Death to bloodthirsty Khamenei,” “Death to the dictator,” “Death to child-killer rulers,” “Death to the rule of execution” and “Death to the Supreme Leader after many long years of crimes” from their balconies and rooftops.

Defiant youths in Sanandaj staged nightly demonstrations chanting “Death to Khamenei” and “Death to the dictator” and block the road by lighting fire. On Friday, people and worshipers in Sanandaj protested the abduction of Sunni clerics, Ebrahim Karimi and Luqman Amini, by gathering outside the Nanle Mosque chanting “Death to the dictator” and “Death to the agent” and demanded their release.

The activities of defiant youths continued on the eve of the anniversary of the anti-monarchy revolution in 1979. The state banners and pictures of Ruhollah Khomeini and Ali Khamenei were set on fire and destroyed by the youths in Tehran’s Imam Ali highway, Mashhad, Nowshahr, Shush, Somesara, Nikshahr, Yazd, Qazvin, Hamedan, and Kermanshah.

The Iranian regime has announced its decision to sell public properties, a move that is being referred to as the largest "state corruption" since the regime took power.

The Iranian regime has announced its decision to sell public properties, a move that is being referred to as the largest "state corruption" since the regime took power.

The Iranian regime has announced its decision to sell public properties, a move that is being referred to as the largest “state corruption” since the regime took power.

 

The plan is being supervised by a delegation of seven top officials close to the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, who has been granted impunity over their decisions on what to sell. This plan comes after nearly two decades of a so-called “privatization plan” and is considered Tehran’s last-ditch effort to compensate for its huge budget deficit. The lion’s share of the budget goes to the regime’s security apparatus, mainly the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). With the privatization plan, the IRGC has succeeded in dominating the country’s financial streams, and with the new plan, it would literally own the country.

Many officials and state media are protesting the lack of transparency in this plan, as well as the potential problems it could create. The chief of the delegation, Mohammad Mokhber, is the former head of the Execution of Khomeini’s Order (EIKO), Khamenei’s major plundering conglomerate. Another member of the delegation, Ahmad Vahidi, the interior minister, is a top IRGC commander and is wanted for the bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Argentina.

Under this plan, the delegation will auction all properties belonging to ministries, universities, state institutions, governmental companies, banks, government credit institutions, and insurance companies, as well as surplus assets of Iran’s national oil, gas, and petrochemical companies, the Central Bank, Iran’s mineral industries, and maritime affairs. This could earn the regime roughly $445 billion based on current dollar exchange rates.

 

 

The government claims that the “private sector” will benefit from this plan, but there is no “private sector” in Iran. In reality, this term is the acronym of the IRGC. The government has been criticized for not reducing unnecessary expenses and budgets, and instead choosing to auction public and future generations’ property.

Many parliament members have also protested the approval of the “production of government assets law,” which is considered by many as the code name for auctioning the country. The lack of transparency and the fact that semi-governmental institutions like the IRGC are taking control instead of governmental institutions have also been criticized.

The ongoing nationwide uprising has rattled the regime’s foundation. Khamenei has sensed his regime’s imminent downfall. So, like Shah in his last days, Khamenei intends to auction the country, keep its vast security apparatus afoot and export as much capital as he and his accomplices are able to.

 

The growing calls for regime change within Iran have created the ideal environment for the international community, particularly European countries, to side with the Iranian people by sanctioning the IRGC and increasing pressure on the regime.

The Intelligence Organization of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is one of the most infamous and brutal organizations. It was founded in 2009 as one of the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s initiatives in response to widespread protests against the fraudulent election at the time. The organization is at least as powerful as the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS), if not more so. It is more active on the domestic front.

For more than four decades, inflation in Iran has increased poverty and increased the prices of food, clothing, and other consumer and capital goods. These issues have now become the norm in the Iranian people's daily lives. And near-zero economic growth has only exacerbated the situation.

Iran’s economic struggle: Inflation, poverty and the rising necessities prices

For more than four decades, inflation in Iran has increased poverty and increased the prices of food, clothing, and other consumer and capital goods. These issues have now become the norm in the Iranian people's daily lives. And near-zero economic growth has only exacerbated the situation.

For more than four decades, inflation in Iran has increased poverty and increased the prices of food, clothing, and other consumer and capital goods. These issues have now become the norm in the Iranian people’s daily lives. And near-zero economic growth has only exacerbated the situation.

 

Food is the second most expensive household expense, after housing. According to a report from the Iranian regime’s statistics center, the price of food and beverages increased by 63.6 percent in December 2022 when compared to December 2021. In 2022, food expenses accounted for approximately 26.7 percent of total urban household expenditures. Around seven food products that are very important in the household food basket (such as oil and rice) have increased in price by more than 100 percent. The World Bank published a list of the top ten countries experiencing a food security crisis due to inflation, with Iran ranking seventh.

The population living below the poverty line is a topic of discussion among regime experts. They are warning regime officials that the continuation of this situation will only exacerbate the ongoing protests caused by the expansion of a starving nation. According to a recent report from the regime’s Ministry of Labor, the poverty line for Tehran and similar large cities is around 145 million rials ($370) per household. This figure was half of this for cities and villages, averaging 77 million rials ($185).

Many regime experts are criticizing the government’s calculations, claiming that the true poverty line is much higher, at around 180 million rials or even more. The massive disparity between the minimum income of people above the poverty line in Tehran and other cities and marginal areas, of course, when fixed prices of food, clothing, transportation, and health are taken into account, is strange, to say the least.

Discrimination in determining the minimum wage will increase labor migration and the evacuation of small cities and villages in the coming year (Persian Calendar). The current crisis of marginalization and people living in urban slums will only exacerbate the economic and social damage. Meanwhile, many workers are now receiving even lower wages, which has affected the overall poverty line.

 

The absolute poverty line is for those who are forced to work more than the allowed amount to escape poverty but remain in poverty. Some work 16 hours a day in two or three shifts, but they are still impoverished.

Protests in Iran have now spread to at least 282 cities. According to sources from the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the regime’s forces have killed over 750 people and arrested over 30,000. The MEK has released the names of 637 protesters who were killed. On Tuesday evening, residents in Tehran’s Shahran, Narmak, and Molla Sadra districts began chanting anti-regime slogans directed specifically at Khamenei and the mullahs’ entire apparatus. “Death to Khamenei!” “Death to the mullahs’ regime principle!”

European Parliament adopts resolution to place IRGC on terrorist list

 

 

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling for the European Union to place the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Basij, and the Quds Force on the terrorist list, and to ban any economic activity with these entities. The resolution also calls for the imposition of sanctions on Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, its President Ebrahim Raisi, and foundations related to the IRGC, including the Mustazafin, Shahid, and Janbazan foundations.

Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), welcomed the resolution, saying it is an important step in confronting the biggest terrorist and suppressive organization and state in the world today, which has shed the blood of millions of people in Iran and the region in the last four decades. She also called on the European Union and its member states to immediately put an end to the policy of appeasing the religious fascism ruling Iran by placing the IRGC on the terrorist list and sanctioning Ali Khamenei, Ebrahim Raisi, and other officials responsible for the killings and suppression.

 

 

 

The resolution calls on the EU to expand the sanctions list to all individuals and entities responsible for human rights violations. It also calls on the EU to consider sanctions against the 227 Members of the Iranian parliament who encouraged the use of death sentences, and to add the IRGC and its subsidiary forces, including the paramilitary Basij militia and the Quds Force, to the EU terrorist list, and to ban any economic and financial activity involving businesses and commercial activities related to, owned, wholly or in part, by, or fronting for, the IRGC or IRGC-affiliated individuals, and entities.

 

This resolution is not only seen as a way to hold Iran accountable for its actions, but also a way to support the Iranian people and their call for a change in government. Furthermore, it is seen as a necessary measure to promote peace and stability in the region and to fight against terrorism. It is now crucial for the EU and its member states to take action and implement these measures to send a strong message to the Iranian regime.

 

 

The Iranian Resistance has repeatedly called for the IRGC’s terrorist designation in the past four decades, and Mrs. Rajavi has repeatedly asked the Council of the European Union to include the IRGC and all its affiliated companies and institutions, which control a large part of Iran's economy, on the terrorist list and impose sanctions on them.

MEPs urge EU to designate Iran’s IRGC as terrorist organization

On Tuesday, January 17, the European Parliament held a debate and plenary session on the current situation in Iran, focusing on the nationwide uprising and the European Union’s obligations in light of recent developments in Iran.

 

MEPs from all political parties backed the Iranian people’s revolution. Many of them urged the European Council to designate the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, citing the organization’s role in killing peaceful protesters and exporting terrorism abroad. They also condemned Iran’s ongoing human rights violations, particularly the recent execution of four detained protesters, and called for Tehran to be held accountable.

“[The clerical regime] is a cruel regime, and we know that there are serious restrictions that go beyond moral and political fears. The IRGC is a key pillar of the regime and must be added to the list of terrorist organizations,” EPP MEP Javier Zarzalejos said on Tuesday.

 

 

While endorsing the Iranian people’s revolution, MEP Hanna Neumann from Germany said: “The regime is under pressure because people in Iran are even willing to die for a brighter future. We, the EU, should not be the ones stabilizing a regime whose own people are fighting for its demise. The IRGC should be added to the list of terrorist organizations.”

MEP Frederique Ries of France’s Renaissance party also supported the Iranian people’s uprising, emphasizing that “we need to be very stringent on the sanctions at the highest level against Iran’s president and the IRGC.”

Prior to Tuesday’s debate, the Friends of Free Iran inter-parliamentary group issued a statement urging MEPs and the European Council to support the Iranian people and label the IRGC a terrorist organization.

 

 

“The nationwide uprising in Iran, which is entering its fifth month, is rooted in more than four decades of the organized resistance of the Iranian people for freedom. “Today, Iranians of all generations and social strata have taken to the streets, demanding an end to the dictatorship,” the statement reads.

“The Iranian regime and its leaders have perpetuated these crimes with impunity for the past four decades, becoming more brutal without accountability. The regime has openly stated that it will not cooperate with the independent international fact-finding mission mandated by the UN Human Rights Council in a special session on November 24, 2022.”

 

 

“We believe that in this situation, cooperation and negotiation with the Iranian regime cannot be justified under any pretext. “The European Union and its member states should blacklist the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist entity for its role in suppressing the people of Iran and its terrorist activities, recall their ambassadors from Iran, and close the regime’s embassies in EU countries, expelling Tehran’s diplomats and agents,” they urged.
