Brigadier General Iraj Masjedi, adviser of Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the terrorist Qods Force, has just been appointed as the new ambassador of the Iranian regime in Iraq. The Asr-e state-run website said that the regime’s embassy in Iraq’s capital is “one of the strategic positions abroad”. It also added that the embassy and it ambassador are considered “of the utmost importance”.
It is surprising how many leaders in the West have decided to disregard information provided by their own intelligence regarding the meddling of Iran in the Middle East.
It has recently been brought to light just how much Obama ignored regarding Iran’s destabilising actions in Iraq, Yemen and Bahrain to name a few places. The Obama administration spent more time appeasing the Iranian regime.
Twenty-three former officials of the US government have called on President-elect Donald Trump to deal with the Iranian opposition group – the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
In a letter to Trump, the 23 former officials advised that the NCRI is a valuable resource to the administration and that he should consult with the group.
The funeral of Rafsanjani, the former President of Iran, brought earlier than expected trouble. The Rafsanjani-Rouhani chanted “these too many people are here for their love for leader”, whereas the other side shouted “dictator, dictator”, “our state television, our shame” and “political prisoners should get released”.
The unrest in society was not just contained in the capital – there were protests in Mashhad where people chanted “Down with Khamenei”.
