Germany's internal security service has exposed Iran's fundamentalist regime of spying on Iran's largest democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK), and the main opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Germany’s domestic intelligence service, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, or ‘BfV’), said in its annual report, dated July 2015, that the PMOI (MEK) and NCRI are the primary targets of spying activity by Iran’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).
More than 200 teachers were arrested on Wednesday during a protest outside the parliament in Tehran demanding the release of their colleagues from jail, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said on Wednesday
A report by AFP said: “Authorities launched a crackdown after over 2,000 teachers from across Iran gathered outside parliament carrying placards and chanting ‘Free those arrested,’ the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said.”
The fundamentalist regime in Iran came to the negotiating table from a position of utter weakness and not due to a change of heart by Tehran’s leadership over its nuclear project, Ambassador Ken Blackwell rightly points out today.
"It had its back against the wall."
Over-stretched by three regional wars, with a restive population, particularly among the young and the women, and an economy on the verge of collapse, the regime in Iran was not in any position to seek concessions, he said.
The role of the West now is to push toward a solution not only to the “one particular problem” of Iran’s nuclear program, but also to the overall problem of Iran’s destabilizing effect on the Middle East and the world, Prof. Raymond Tanter says.
“Iran has always avoided revealing the details of its nuclear program until the weight of intelligence from foreign agencies and domestic dissidents made it impossible to keep up its denials. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) revealed sites that Iran has shielded from foreign scrutiny over the past 13 years. And it took years of UN resolutions and economic sanctions before Iran would concede to negotiate on restrictions to even a fraction of these sites,” he wrote in Daily Caller.
