As I’m writing this, I, together with many other Iranians are filled with outrage. The almost daily terrorist attacks in Iran are trouble to say the least. Today, November 3, another outrageous terrorist attack took place in the city of Karaj, northern Iran. Terrorists attacked civilians and police officers on the Qazvin-Karaj highway in the morning. In a video released on social media, one of the terrorists can clearly be seen executing a wounded police officer. This is how the tragic Syrian war began, and this is what Washington has planned for Iran.
For the past two months, Washington, the Zionists and their Western client states have launched a massive psychological operation against the Islamic Republic, with tens of thousands of online trolls and their army of “journalists” who spread fake news and disinformation every minute, every day. The amount of fake news spread during this psyop is ridiculous. Some trolls/bots even claimed that the Halloween disaster in South Korea was Tehran’s fault.
Saudi-owned “Iran International”, BBC Persian, ManotoTV and other disgraceful outlets have, from their London and Los Angeles offices been spewing lies and fake news around the clock, while also openly encouraging violence in Iran. These lies have been repeated by western media and both Iranian and non-Iranian celebrities around the world. This is a massive psychological operation that is arguably only second to the one going on against Russia concurrently.
Immediately after accusing the Islamic Republic of beating Mahsa Amini to death, the western countries announced that they’d be imposing new sanctions on Tehran, despite having announced their eagerness to revive JCPOA only a week earlier. What happened? Ostensibly the reason given for these sanctions are “repressive measures and violation of human rights and international law”.
By now, only the idiots of the world actually believe that “human rights” is the reason behind western sanctions anywhere in the world. If “human rights” or “women’s rights” were the issues they had with Iran, then how come the Saudi kingdom is spared from these sanctions, where women need Mahrams (male guardian) to go anywhere outside their home, where they chop up journalists in their embassies abroad, and behead people in public in the “chop chop square” in Riyadh?
This is about western interference in Iran and how it ended with the Islamic Revolution. It´s about a country that they had absolute control over, and then suddenly lost it all. This is what their hostility is about. It is not unique for Iran. We see the same hostility towards any independent country such as Russia and China for example. It´s not about “regimes” or ideologies either. If that was the case, then they wouldn´t have overthrown the democratically elected Mossadegh in 1953 in favour of the dictator Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
In his most recent speech, Ayatollah Khamenei correctly identified the root for the long conflict between the US and Iran: “They say the reason the Americans stood against the Iranian people was the move you made in the embassy,” he said. “That is, ‘you attacked our embassy and a dispute emerged between us [which led to] a fight and an enmity.’ They lie. This is not the case.”
“Mosaddegh’s government was a national government. His problem with the Westerners was only the issue of oil. He neither was a Hojatoleslam (top Islamic cleric) nor did he promote Islam. The issue was just related to oil, which was in the hands of the British. He said that the oil should be in our hands. This was his only crime.”
“They arrested Mosaddegh and his entourage and everyone [else],” he said. “Some were executed later, and some were imprisoned for many years.”
“Our dispute with the Americans started that day. Now, American politicians are hypocritically and shamelessly saying that ‘we support the Iranian nation,’”
To the imperialists in Washington, there´s no greater affront than a country that stands independently, securing the interests of its people and its future. This is intolerable! Even worse, when a backward and “uncivilized” country such as Iran dares to challenge US hegemony, such audacity must be met with the most vicious and cruellest animosity. Ever since the Islamic Revolution, the US has imposed “draconian sanctions”, conducted numerous terrorist attacks and assassinations, imposed an 8 year long war on the country, and launched several coup/regime change operations. They have over the past 43 years, both through direct and indirect channels offered Tehran bribes to abandon the struggle and support for the Palestinian cause, end the hostility towards Washington´s dear Zionist regime and abandon the struggle for a multi-polar world.
All of these efforts to destroy the Islamic Republic´s resolve have failed. And they will continue to fail. Why? Because they do not understand, and they won´t ever understand. Ever since the days of Jimmy Carter and his embarrassing New Year´s speech in Tehran in 1977 where he declared Iran to be “an island of stability”, meaning that Washington felt absolutely safe in their control over the country, to John Bolton´s pathetic speech in front of Iranian terrorist supporters in 2018 where he expressed his hope to “celebrate in Tehran” before the end of the year, they have failed time and time again to correctly analyse the Iranian people and nation.
In a great speech, Ayatollah Khamenei talks about these repeated miscalculations:
Today, we see the same type of miscalculation as the one that Ayatollah Khamenei speaks about in the video above. They thought that they could launch a “feminist revolution” in Iran, believing in their own lies that the Islamic Republic has no supporters, and will collapse under the pressure of riots and strikes. The Islamic Republic responded by mobilizing its supporters and this was the result:
Here are the ”liberal feminist rioters”:
And here are the supporters of the Islamic Republic:
Clearly, the few thousand “protestors”, of which a minority of them were actual terrorists/subversives, were overwhelmed by the massive amount of people who have come out in support of the Islamic Republic. But of course, they won´t show any of this in the Western media. Instead they have dozens of “analysts” who speculate on how quickly the Islamic Republic can fall and how Ayatollah Khamenei is “already dead and has been replaced by a body double”.
Seeing how they failed to cause any trouble for the Islamic Republic through “protests”, they resorted to riots, separatism and terrorist attacks instead. Kurdish terrorists, Baluchi terrorists, Arab and Azeri terrorists, all seeking to partition Iran. ISIS seeking to genocide Iranian Shias, and monarchists seeking to “immediately re-establish ties with Israel and the United States, and take a historically correct stance against Russia´s war in Ukraine”, as the self-styled “crown prince” of Iran said last month. These are the people Washington has mobilized for a “free Iran”. If the Islamic Republic were to fall, these people would partition the country into at least five different pieces, and start killing each other in a free-for all Battle Royale. Thankfully, security forces in Iran are arresting numerous rioters and terrorists on a daily basis who often start crying on camera, confessing to their crimes and who they received money and weapons from. Not a single one of them have stood their ground and defended their despicable actions. Big surprise!
What do they know about fighting for a cause? What do they know about bravery and sacrifice? What do they know about brotherhood? Nothing! They are opportunists who, like their ex-pat friends in the West, would sell their own mothers for money and power. Just like in Syria, they have no leaders, no honour and no dignity. They are being used as tools by Washington, only to be thrown under the bus when the Americans are done with them. This is how the Americans treat their “allies”.
On the contrary, The Islamic Republic was deeply embroiled in chaos and war with Saddam when it sent the first men to Lebanon to assist in the creation of Hezbollah in response to Israel´s invasion in 1982.
IRGC Quds force personnel arrive in Lebanon 1982.
Since those days, everything Iran has achieved, it has shared with its brothers in the region. Why? Because only united, can this region kick the barbaric Anglo-Zionists out. It was in anticipation for days such as this that Iran built an impressive missile arsenal, formed, and supported multiple armed militia groups in different countries in the region and have now reached out to great powers such as Russia and China to form a strong alliance against the Empire. In their arrogance and racist view, they thought that the Islamic Republic was resting on a rotten foundation such as the ones that their allied regimes in the Persian Gulf are resting on. Did Washington expect the Islamic Republic to go down so easily? Did they think that Syria, Hezbollah, Hashd Al-Shaabi, Ansarullah and other allies in the region would just idly stand by and watch while the strongest member of the Resistance alliance is being destroyed? Did they think that the Islamic Republic built an arsenal of hundreds of thousands of missiles just to collapse under the pressure of petty thugs and crude terrorist attacks?
Like I mentioned in my previous article, Iran is not Libya or Iraq during Saddam Hussein who stood alone in face of a NATO onslaught. Iran is both powerful on its own, and has powerful allies. Tehran is not alone in facing the evil empire and today, not just regional allies but great powers such as Russia and China have major stakes in Iran. Any foreign intervention, or bombing campaign against Iran will be met with missiles raining on Israel and US bases across the entire West Asia. If they want to test the Islamic Republic´s capabilities, then they must be ready to make very big sacrifices, because the era of hit and run attacks is over.
The westerners didn’t understand why Iranians were angry at them in 1979 and why they overthrew a “modern king” in favour of a “backward Islamic theocracy”. Many westerners still cannot understand how the Islamic Republic can be so popular among the Iranian people, and often just refuse to believe it. Why would they understand? They don’t know how 200 years of humiliation and subservience to others feel. They don´t know how it feels to have elected a prime minister, only to see him overthrown by foreigners who returned an unpopular dictator to the throne. They don´t know how it feels to have their country´s natural resources plundered by foreigners for decades.
Throughout the years since the Revolution, the Islamic Republic and its allies have given a lot martyrs for the cause of liberating West Asia from the Zionist empire. From the war against Saddam´s Iraq, where hundreds of thousands of young men were martyred, to the wars against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, these martyrs were inspired and driven by Imam Hussein´s immortal struggle against oppression. This is the ideology on which the Islamic Republic was formed and still rests on. They do not fear the US and its fabled “military might”. They do not fear American “super duper” bombs and missiles. They fear only God and consider fighting against oppression a religious duty, just like Imam Hussein did 1400 years ago. This is what the westerners do not understand when they try to intimidate Iran and its allies.
43 years since the embassy takeover on November 4 1979, they still do not understand that the Islamic Republic is a result of their own cruelty and injustice against Iran, and it has come back to haunt them. If they haven´t understood by now why the Islamic Republic continues to grow stronger, despite all their attempts to destroy the country from both the outside and inside, then they will never understand.
A public hanging of ringleaders will improve morale and make it doubly difficult for the Anglo-Zionist’s future recruitment drives.
May God guide the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Axis of Resistance.
Benny Nuttyhoot is back to coordinate the Axis of Evil.
I agree with the executing of traitors, but the gullible muppets in the West will be given more reason to believe the lies that Moslems are barbaric.
Just yesterday I overheard a moron spouting off about the evil Iranians. Totally oblivious to what the Khazarians are doing in the West Bank atm.
At this stage on the Grand Chessboard comrade, what the West or westerns think, is of little concern.
According to the UK gutter-press, Putin’s had 27 different incurable diseases since the beginning of the SMO, and yet, he’s still giving 4 hour televised appearances, questions and answer sessions, daily. Maybe when this figure reaches 50, more western lemmings will begin to question MSM’s bullshit. Again, maybe when they’re huddled together in the one room that they can afford to heat, a conversation they’ve been putting off will transpire.
Hilarious!! We needed that uproarious laugh!!
The muppets haven’t mattered for 50 years, probably more. The vast majority of them have been completely de-brained and de-balled, not to mention being jabbed full of clot shots that also created in them a perfect biowar marker.
Tell the people of Iran the time has come. It is high time that you take no prisoners. It is time to pull out the long knives. Or as they say in Iran it is time to carry your sword unsheathed.
This article makes many good points. But the most salient one is that now Iran has strong allies–Russia, China, India, and most of the rest of the Eurasian axis. And even Saudi Arabia and Iran are on the verge of rapprochement. The rest of the world sees clearly what is happening: the Western imperialists are going down
Look forward to seeing the Eurasian allies pull SA and Arab Sheikhdoms of the Persian Gulf, out of American sphere into their own camp. Once all the oil/gas resources of the Middle East, Russia, Venezuela, Algeria … Zone B countries form a unified structure and where 100% pricing, security, insurance decisions should be made in Moscow, Beijing, N.Delhi, Tehran, Caracas… then we can say the US and their zionist collaborators are officially finished. Even the current war instigated by the NATO against Russia from Ukraine will be over very quickly.
An excellent speech filled with obvious truths. Very good & well written.
The Empire of Lies makes no attempt to understand any real civilization, as it is a mockery of freedom, democracy and sovereignty. Andrei Martyanov is correct in reminding us that the USA has never actually fought for its own survival, but instead roams the world invading and destroying countries which are really defending themselves. They have history and culture which are of value and worth defending.
Why the Hegemon cannot be a real nation, cooperating with others and promoting peace, I cannot understand!!!
The Anglo-Zionist Western sphere has spent through its own resources and desperately needs to replenish them, like in the old colonial days. Simple as that!
“They say the reason the Americans stood against the Iranian people was the move you made in the embassy,” he said. “That is, ‘you attacked our embassy and a dispute emerged between us [which led to] a fight and an enmity.’ They lie. This is not the case.”
I agree and the occupation of the embassy was americas own work to get an excuse to intervene for the purpose of threatening the Europeans. This happened because a competing petrocurrency was then being planned and the anglosaxons were threatening to cut of the supply of oil if they insisted.
But there is more to expose than just the doubleplay with the embassy. The whole revolution with Khomeini was the work of the anglosaxons.
I understand that Iran today has more immediate priorities than to bring that one up.
But I think all the rivals of the empire are in a sense collaborating with the western empire in omitting the truth. The truth about all revolutions being anglosaxon revolutions.
Ach der so friedliche Islam….hier kein Thema, es bekämpfen sich Sunniten gegen Schiiten und umgekehrt.
Eine Welt ohne Religionen währe friedlicher!!!
Hi Charly, Iran was forbidden a secular government that it freely elected by the coup in 1953, and then the Shah was placed in power. Secular politics were manipulated and infiltrated too easIly by Western intetests – as this article alludes to, revolutionary Islam emerged in answer to the lack of alternatives to overthrow oppression. There are of course many examples of Islamic groups who work for Western powers, but revolutionary Islam is different, it’s an anti colonial movement. It has a two pronged approach restoring dignity and a sense of integrity to a much abused population, and militant resistance to Western powers engaged in resource theft and imperial wars.
Like this article outlines it’s a product of Western meddling and atrocities. But is actually a part of a historical pan Islamic resistance to imperialism that dates back at least 130 years or more – Algeria is another interesting example. See also Sudan and the history of imperialism in India.
So I guess you can despise religion as much as you like. But as far as I understand the Islamic Republic is very much of the people. And they may have their grievances, but this does not mean they want the end of a state centered in Islamic values and religion. And I for one, believe that this choice is infinitely worthy of respect and understanding. And any reform must be led by the people themselves.
Replaced by a body double but magically has the memory of his original body, that would be enough reason to start an opposing terrorist operation.
