نامه سرگشاده آتنا دائمی به مناسبت پایان پیروزمند و غرور آفرین اعتصاب غذایش





كانون حمایت از خانواده جان باختگان و بازداشتی ها 10خرداد ۹۶: پس از گذشت ۵۴روز از اعتصاب غذای جانکاه زندانی سیاسی و فعال حقوق زنان، آتنا دائمی، با محقق شدن مطالباتش امروز چهارشنبه ۱۰خرداد ۹۶، به اعتصاب غذای خود پایان داد و در نامه ای سرگشاده به عموم هموطنان از دلایل اعتصاب غذا و طی مسیر و قدردانی از حمایت ها، گفته است و در آخر به این نکته اشاره می کند که: من پس از پنجاه و چهار روز اعتصاب غذا به همراه شما موفق شدم که حکم تبرئه خواهرانم را به دست آورم و این آغاز راه است، آغاز راه ایستادن در برابر آزار و اذیت خانواده های زندانیان سیاسی یا خانواده های جانباختگان.
متن کامل نامه را به نقل از هرانا در زیر بخوانید:
اعتصاب غذا کردم که صدای بی صدایان باشم، ابتدا پدرم را مورد آزار قرار دادند و بعد در پرونده جدید خواهرانم را به حبس محکوم کردند، حبسی ناعادلانه و کاملاً خلاف قوانین خودشان، تنها برای آزار و سکوت من. به عالیجنابان گفته بودم چه یک روز و چه یک سال،چه تعلیق و تعزیر بودن آن تفاوتی ندارد به نفس عمل گروگان گیری خانواده زندانی سیاسی و جانباخته راه آزادی اعتراض خواهم کرد و در این راه از مرگ هراسم نیست و مرگ اخرین سنگرم!
خواستم صدای تمام کسانی باشم که در تمام این سال ها خانوادگی گرفتار ظلم و جور شدند، خواهرانم بهانه ای بودند تا صدای مریم و رضا اکبری منفرد باشم که سی و نه سال پیش چهار خواهر و برادرشان تیرباران و امروز آن ها به جرم دادخواهی در زندانند،مریمی که بعد از هشت سال حبس بی مرخصی به تازگی توسط مامورین امنیتی احضار و تهدید به حبس مجدد شده ،گویی سایه ١۵سال حبس ناعادلانه مادر بر سر سه دختر نوجوانش کم است! خواستم صدای فاطمه مثنی باشم که ١٣ساله بود زندانی شد و سه برادرش اعدام شدند و حالا باز هم او و همسرش حسن صادقی هر کدام با١۵سال حبس در زندانند،خواستم صدای فریبا کمال آبادی و مهوش شهریاری باشم که ١٠سال از حبسشان مى گذرد و حتی نتوانستند در ازدواج فرزندانشان حضور یابند، خواستم صدای مادران زندانی باشم،صدای الهام فراهانی و عادل نعمیمى زوج زندانی که به تازگی پسرشان شمیم را بعد از ۴سال از زندان بدرقه آزادی کردند. خواستم صدای آزیتا رفیع زاده و پیمان کوشکباغی باشم که تنها فرزند ٧ساله شان بشیر بین اوین و رجایی شهر سرگردان است و خاطرات کودکی اش در زندان به ثبت میرسد!خواستم صدای مهدی وحسین هنرمندی باشم که برادرانه با هم حبس میکشند و اگر هنربند بودند و آلت دست دولتمردان ،قطعاً حالا آزاد بودند و صدای سازشان گوش دنیا را کر کرده بود!خواستم صدای زوجهای زندانی چون آفرین نیساری و کارن وفاداری باشم که اوین شده خانه مشترکشان، صدای آرش و گلرخ، آرشی که با داغ قتل مادر توسط امنیتی ها حالا زندگی مشترکش با گلرخ با حبسی سنگین بر دوش زیر سقف بندهای اوین سپری میشود، خواستم صدای خانواده دانشپورها باشم، صدای پدر و مادر بهنود رمضانی که پرسیدند چرا فرزندمان کشته شد و به حبس محکوم شدند، خواستم صدای منصوره بهکیش باشم که پرسید چرا ۶خواهر و برادرم تیرباران شدند و قبرشان کجاست اما با حبس سنگین پاسخ شنید یا خانواده زینالی که پرسیدند سعیدمان کجاست ولی بازداشت و زندانی شدند،خواستم صدای مادرمان شهناز باشم که گفت پسرم را کشتید و حالا به جای مجازات آمران و عاملان قتل مصطفی ، زندانیان سیاسی را ازاد کنید اما خودش یکی از آنها شد،خواستم صدای پیمان عارفی باشم که مظلومانه مادر و همسرش را در راه ملاقات زندان از دست داد یا مادر محسن قشقایی،خواستم صدای زانیار و لقمان مرادی باشم زانیاری که حبس بی ملاقات را به عذاب پدر و مادر ترجیح میدهد و جوانی اش زیر تیغ اعدام چه تلخ میگذرد!خواستم صدای تک تک زندانیان کردی باشم که غیورانه برای حفظ حرمت و نامرس و برای دور نگه داشتن خانواده از افکار پلید و تهدیدهای امنیتی به هر شکنجه و اعتراف اجباری تن دادند و راهی چوبه دار شدند،عزیزانی چون برادران دهقانی و بهرام و شهرام و حامد احمدی،و چه تلخ آمار بازداشت طایفه حسین پناهی ها در کردستان روز به روز افزایش می یابد!!!خواستم صدای مریم النگی باشم که همسرش محسن دکمه چی از بی توجهی در زندان جان داد و حالا مریم به خاطر توجه به همسرش در زندان است،خواستم صدای شبنم و فرزاد مددزاده ، ژیلا بنی یعقوب و بهمن امویی، نیکا و نوا خلوصی، کیوان و کامران رحیمیان و فاران حسامی باشم،صدای شمیس مهاجر و شهاب دهقان و خواستم صدای پرستو فروهر و معصومه دهقان باشم صدای سیامک و باقر نمازی محبوس در انفرادی!
خواستم صدای تک تک کسانی باشم که از عدم امنیت ، پس از آزادی ترک وطن کردند ، چه کسی جز آنها و خانواده هایشان عمق سختی های تبعید اجباری را درک کردند؟!من با تمام وجود حتی خواستم صدای شکسته شدن سنگ قبر مادر شاهین نجفی باشم تا بگویم نه تنها ما منتقدین و مخالفین و زندانیان سیاسی در عدم امنیت به سر میبریم بلکه اعضای خانواده مان نیز علاوه بر تهدید و توهین و فشارهلی ناشی از آزار عزیزانشان تحت خطر بازداشت و حبس هستند.
پنجاه وچهار روز پیش در حالی اعتصاب غذاین را شروع کردم که نمیخواستم بار مضاعفی بر دوش هم بندیان درد کشیده ام باشم اما در آن روزهایی که تشنه قطره ای آب بودم، میدیدم که آنها هر روز و هر لحظه با تهوع های مداومم با من زندگی را بالا اوردند!شرمسار بودم از دیدن درد کشیدنم،فریادهای اعتراضشان به بی توجهی مسئولین و بهداری اوین به وضعیت جسمانی ام دیوارهای بند را لرزاند، تهدید و تنبیه شدند اما تنهایم نگذاشتند،در برابر یک به یک آنها سر تعظیم فرود می آورم.
پنجاه و چهار روز در حالی در اعتصاب غذا بودم که علاوه بر وخامت حالم پله های دادسرا و دادگاه ر بی تفاوتی مسئولین به وضعیتم، تازیانه ای شد بر تمام وجود اعضای خانواده ام، خانواده ای که ذره ذره با من آب شدند ولی با مقاوت کم نظیرشان و با همراهی شجاعانه شان ایستادند و صدایم شدند، از سوی وزارت اطلاعات تهدید شدند اما همچنان همراهی ام کردند، بوسه میزنم بر پاهای خسته پدرم و دستان مادرم که مادرانه مینوشت، بوسه میزنم بر چشمان اشکبار خواهرانم که نمیخواستند به خاطر انها اسیب ببینم ولی در واقع آنها بودند که به خاطر من، به خاطر آزار من مورد هدف شکارچیان سیری ناپذیر قرا گرفتند،ممنونم که همراهم بودند.
آری من خواستم صدای بی صدایان باشم اما در اوج تب و تاب انتخابات بود که زیر بار تبلیغات له شدم و این شما مردم شریف بودید که فریادم شدید و همراه و هم صدا با من و خانواده ام شدید، شما عزیزانی که نمیشناسم و شاید هرگز نشناسم یا دوستان و رفقایی ناب که همواره در کنارم بودند،اگر نبودید حالا بعد از پنجاه و چهار روز موفق نمیشدم،قطعا از خیلی ها باید نام ببرم و قدردانی کنم اما به خاطر امنیت معذورم!
پنجاه و چهار روز گذشت و من نه، در واقع شما پیروز شدید، با حمایت گسترده، با قلم هایتان، با فریادتان،با شعر و ترانه و نقاشی و به هر طریق ممکن پیروزی را رقم زدید، که برای همه ما شیرین است، از تمامی نهادهای حقوق بشری ممنونم.
من پس از پنجاه و چهار روز اعتصاب غذا به همراه شما موفق شدم که حکم تبرئه خواهرانم را به دست آورم و این آغاز راه است، آغاز راه ایستادن در برابر آزار و اذیت خانواده های زندانیان سیاسی یا خانواده های جانباختگان.
با کسب موفقیتی که با حمایت شما عزیزان و سروران میسر شد امروز٩۶/٣/١٠به این اعتصاب غذا پایان خواهم داد و از تک تک عزیزان همراه تشکر و قدر دانی می کنم.
به امید آزادی

IRGC News Agency: New US Senate Sanctions, Killing Iran Nuclear Deal





NCRI - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) described the new sanctions approved by the United Nations Senate Foreign Relations Committee against Iran’s human rights violations, support for terrorism and ballistic missile program as the “most serious and comprehensive US sanctions bill” against Tehran and “Congress act of killing the JCPOA.” JCPOA is the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or “Iran Nuclear Deal”.
“It appears the new bill can, in addition to new sanctions, provide a basis for limited military action. This bill provides authority to the US President to take action against unorthodox and spontaneous threats against US foreign policy, economy and/or foreign relations when the source is beyond this country’s borders. The legal basis for such a bill is the annual extension of the emergency situation law issued against Iran,” the Fars news agency wired on May 29th.
“Furthermore, the US President can issue executive orders and impose serious and effective sanctions against (Iran) on missile activities, destabilizing measures and/or human rights violations, which easily place JCPOA sanctions relief out of order,” the report added.
“This bill is generally comprised of 12 sections and the President is obliged to identify Iran’s wide range of activities in the region, weapons, human rights and imposing serious and effective sanctions against individuals and people involved in this regard,” the Fars report continued.
In addition to extending a number of sanctions imposed prior to the JCPOA in new forms, this bill intends to impose pressure on the IRGC as the main force behind Iran’s missile plans and regional activities.
“Iran’s missile policies is not in violation of any resolutions. They are defensive in nature and there will be no change in this policy,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi.
“If this bill is signed by the government it will become US policy and we will react accordingly,” he continued.

Iran: Returning Political Prisoner to Prison From the Hospital Without Treatment





NCRI - Just a few hours after a political prisoner from Evin prison was transferred to the hospital, he was returned to the prison without completing treatment.
Ali-Reza Golipour, a political prisoner in ward seven of Evin prison, was transferred from the prison to Tajrish hospital on May 17, 2017, and was returned to prison the same evening. Earlier, Mr. Golipour was taken to Taleqani hospital, but without the necessary tests and treatment, he was returned to prison.
According to obtained reports, a source close to Mr. Golipour said, “The physician in charge in the hospital has written in a statement to the head of the prison that Mr. Golipour’s physical condition is absolutely not suitable for prison conditions, and this lack of potential has been proven. According to the same source, the prisoner is suffering from various ailments, such as epileptic seizures, heart problems, and lymph nodes infections. His prison intolerance sentence has been confirmed as well.”

Despite agreeing to his urgent medical leave, and despite the efforts of his family for more than a week, he hasn’t been able to be released for medical leave.
Ali-Reza Golipour was born in 1986, as a resident of Tehran. In October 2012, he was a communication student and an employee of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. He was arrested by Intelligence Ministry agents in July 2014 on charges of "espionage for foreigners, and particularly America”. He was tried by the regime’s court, headed by the notorious Abolqasem Salavati, to 39 years and 9 months in prison and 170 lashes, but the sentence was commuted to 12 years in prison.
Ward seven of Evin prison, the exile place of political and security prisoners, is one of the provisions of this notorious prison. The prisoners kept there are mainly charged with financial crimes. But, Iran’s prison authorities are also keeping at least 55 political and security prisoners, alongside drug addicts and financial crimes prisoners. This is against the principle of separation of various crimes. In addition, these prisoners are spending their long-term sentences in very poor conditions. There are at least 30 prisoners with AIDS in this section.

Iran: Plundering, Backed by Revolutionary Guards and Khamenei's Office


NCRI - Last week’s widespread, nationwide protest rallies held by Caspian Credit Institution’s victims in a number of Iranian cities drew attention once again to the critical condition of the country’s credit institutions and even banks.
Caspian Credit Institution was formed in February 2016 by merging eight co-operatives, namely Fereshtegan, Mashhad’s Al-Zahra, Isfahan’s Hasanat, Kermanshah’s Damdaran &Keshavarzan, Mashhad’s Badr-Toos, Payvand, Gorgan’s Amir-Jalin, and Mazandaran’s Keshavarzan, thus taking on all the accounts and commitments of its bankrupt subsidiaries after getting the Central Bank’s permit.
The institution is actually one of 7000 scam businesses which, due to having links with the Revolutionary Guards and Khamenei’s office, have been able to get their permits from regime’s Central Bank, which lacks any kind of independence.
The Central Bank in turn has assigned many of such institutions to other banks so as to avoid any financial commitments. The institutions, however, both those assigned to other banks and those that got Central Bank’s permit, grew rapidly during Guardsman Ahamdinejad’s presidency, and could make huge profits thanks to high oil revenues and inflation rate. But following an oil embargo which led to oil revenues being halved, the credit institution refused to fulfill their commitments and declared bankruptcy one after another, so that they now not only pay no interest on investments, but refuse to pay back investors’ initial deposits as well. Meanwhile, the protesters are holding placards in hand which read “we trusted the Central Bank’s permit.”
Regime’s Central Bank, however, claims it’s been able to organize and manage a significant number of such institutions. The reality, however, is something else. There are 7,000 such institutions that, backed by the Revolutionary Guards and Khamenei’s office, have been largely involved in plundering assets of Iranian people for at least the past ten years, and as it could be seen, they are entering into crisis one after the other.
Last year, such institutions like Padideh Shandiz, Mizan, and Samen-al-Hojaj went bankrupt. This year, it’s Caspian’s turn, and while Caspian’s crisis is still not over, Arman and Delfan credit institutions are also faced with widespread protests of their investors.
Actually, due to non-transparent, predatory monetary and financial policies of the government and the Central Bank, such economic parasites are sucking people’s blood and then file for bankruptcy when there’s no more blood left, thus leaving people stranded.
Economic experts believe that such destructive economic policies have triggered a domino effect of bankruptcies in the money market, leading to thousands of billion tomans of people’s assets being lost. (State-run Jamnews website, May 20, 2017)
The result of such plundering will definitely be increased poverty across society. Reducing poverty yet increasing social welfare is the ultimate goal of all governments and human societies. But when this is reversed, it means nothing but deteriorating people economic and living conditions.
In a report published on 24 May 2017, state-run Eghtesad-Online website has quoted regime’s official figures as saying “11 percent of Iran’s population is below absolute poverty line.” 11 percent of Iran’s 80 million population accounts for nearly nine million. Moreover, another 30 percent, nearly 24 million, are below relative poverty line. These, however, are official figures which are much less than the real ones. The report incidentally acknowledges that the rate of people going below poverty line has significantly increased over the past ten years.
In a report on Gini coefficient published on 24 May 2017, state-run Afkar-news has written that the rich earned 177 times more than the poor during 2002-3. Meanwhile, as Mullah Raisi pointed out during presidential election show debates, Iran’s Gini coefficient ranking has moved up seven notches in recent years, another indicator showing that the number of poor in the country is on the rise.
While countries across the world turn to such programs as subsidies, pension funds, co-operatives, and social security so as to reduce inequality and increase social welfare, in Iran under the Mullahs’ regime, however, systematic theft and corruption on one hand, and spending tens of billions of dollars each year for killing Syrian people and supporting Assad’s dictatorship, Houthis, and Shiite militias in Iraq and Lebanon on the other, has imposed poverty on Iranian people.
There are still other issues affecting poverty. A significant part of Iran’s economy is beyond being monitored by government, entities like Khamenei’s office, Revolutionary Guards, and Astan-Quds that have billions of dollars of turnover yet are exempt from paying taxes or responding to any organization. They illegally import 25-30 billion dollars’ worth of contraband, thus phasing out manufacturing and tradespeople.

In a report released on May 22, it’s been pointed out that nearly 10,000 checks are returned each day, meaning that due to a deep recession, tradespeople can’t pay their debts. The latest returned checks figures released by the Central Bank is related to last year’s fourth quarter, during which there were eight million returned checks with a total value of 30 thousand billion tomans, showing a 200 percent increase in value and 60 percent increase in number compared to the previous period. (State-run Rokna website, May 22, 2017)
Like they say, when job goes out one door, poverty comes in from another. One of the area’s most hit by country’s deep economic recession is the housing sector, according to state-run Young Journalists Club. With minus 17 percent growth in the first nine months of last year (2016), some of investors in housing sector have gone bankrupt beyond revival. Rokna’s report points for instance to 43 thousand billion tomans dedicated to housing sector, saying that the recession in the sector is so deep it can’t be resolved with such facilities.

Has anything changed with Rouhani's re-election in Iran?


Has anything changed with Rouhani's re-election in Iran? - See more at: http://iranprobe.com/explore/articles/1854.html#sthash.ImJqW8QK.dpuf

American Thinker, By Hassan Mahmoudi
Monday, 29 May 2017

Iran's twelfth presidential election was held on May 19, 2017.  The incumbent, Hassan Rouhani, was "re-elected" amid various charges of fraud, vote-rigging, and embarrassing measures to portray the polling stations as crowded.  Yet the Iranian regime's propaganda machine labeled him a reformer, and much of the mainstream press swallowed it hook, line and sinker.
It's an illusion.  Elected under these circumstances, Rouhani's far from being Iran's actual ruler: he remains subordinate to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.  And no, there aren't any "reforms."
Iran's election was far from free or fair, which hardly portends any sort of leader who can enact "reform."  The president is first vetted as a candidate by a clerical panel called the Guardian Council, affiliated with the supreme leader.
The supreme leader stands at the apex of Iran's complex political-religious dictatorship.  He has veto power over all policies and ultimate control of the security forces.  Iran's Supreme Leader controls much of economy through 14 main entities, including the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).  Rouhani's freedom of action in foreign policy is also heavily circumscribed by the supreme leader's authority.
Iran's 12th presidential election came at a critical time.  The economy is deteriorated, inflation is skyrocketing, and there is considerable unemployment, shortages, poverty, sleeping in graveyards, mine explosion incidents, skyscraper fire disasters, a lack of free competition, a deterioration of human rights, and the high cost of military intervention in Syria.  "The main concerns of business in Iran [are] around the issue of stability and peace," said Masoud Khansari, head of the Tehran Chamber of Commerce.
Rouhani's incumbency coincides with one of the most turbulent periods in recent Middle East history.  At a recent Riyadh, Saudi Arabia conference, new military forces have been established, with 34,000 troops to fight terrorism in Syria and Iraq.  Saudi Arabia is Iran's chief religious and secular rival.  The countries in its Riyadh coalition have expressed their enmity to Iran.  They show every sign of being determined to condemn and curb sectarianism and the mullah regime's arms shipments to Iraq as well as its unwelcome role in Syria and Yemen.  "The main goal in establishing this force was to confront not only al-Qaeda and ISIS forces but also militias supported by Iran in Syria," said Mohamed Mojahed Azziyat, a member of the Egyptian Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee, in an interview with Sky News Arabic on Wednesday.
Also, the new generation of youth is protesting the regime's repressive measures.
Rouhani is a regime insider with a history of holding senior positions in the security apparatus following the 1979 Revolution.  He served on the Supreme Defense Council during the Iran-Iraq War as well.
Rouhani has no will to end or even reform Iran's system of government.  He reinvented himself as a so-called full-fledged reformist for his second term, but despite his promises, the people know he will not live up to his commitment.  His record of 3,000 executions during his first term will not go forgotten, either.  Iran's citizens were not surprised when on inauguration day he first headed to the tomb of former Iranian regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini (who died in 1989) to renew his allegiance to him and launch his second term after bowing to Khamenei.
On the third day of Rouhani's second term in office, "the regime has immediately relaunched its domestic crackdown machine after the election farce, especially through executions and torture in prisons across the country. Ten inmates in the prisons of Tabriz, Zahedan, Ardebil, Kermanshah and Isfahan, and Karaj Central Prison were hanged on May 22 and 23. Nine of these cases were carried out on May 23 alone."
On May 25, less than week after the election, IRGC Air and Space Force commander General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh said: "I announce today that in recent years we have built a third underground factory for the manufacture of missiles[.] ... We are going to develop our ballistic power."
Iran's political and economic isolation will continue, as the regime is not able to change.  The international community sees no security in investing in Iran.  To this end, the only predictable change in Iran is regime change.

ISJ: Warning about the plots of Iran and its agents against Iranian refugees in Albania



ISJ: Warning about the plots of Iran and its agents against Iranian refugees in Albania - See more at: http://iranprobe.com/explore/news/1856.html#sthash.dkKRKquG.dpuf
Iran Probe
Wednesday, 31 May 2017

International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) warns against the conspiracies of the Iranian regime in Albania against Iranian refugees, members of the PMOI, and urges the Albanian Government and the UNHCR to strongly condemn these plots and not to let the health and safety of these Iranian refugees be compromised.
1. On April 19, 2017, the Iranian regime’s Embassy expressed its outrage and frustration from the meeting of Senator John McCain and Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, and repeated a series of false claims against the Iranian Resistance. This indicates Iran’s ominous goals against the Iranian Resistance.
2. According to documents published by the PMOI, the Iranian embassy is seeking to employ defectors of the PMOI and enlisting them against Iranian refugees in this country. On April 23, one of these people who was trapped by the regime’s embassy revealed in a letter that the embassy had told him they would give him $300 per month to provide information about the PMOI. He also wrote: "The clerical regime's embassy in Albania, whose Ambassador is Gholam Hossein Mohammadnia, a veteran element of the notorious Ministry of Intelligence (Secret Service), is seeking to spy and employ defectors in Albania, to enlist them against the organization". He added that "the clerical regime's embassy in Albania drags people to spy against the PMOI with bribery and money ".
3. Another individual revealed on April 29 how the Iranian embassy in Tirana approached him and wrote: “Later I found out that the MOIS has pressured my family to mobilize them against the PMOI.”
4.Another person revealed on May 1 how the embassy in Tirana tried to create a petition against the PMOI through which to exert pressure on Iranian refugees in this country.
While the Iranian regime has failed to reach its goal to massacre all of the PMOI members in Camp Ashraf and after in Camp Liberty, it tries to advance its dirty conspiracy against them in Albania. It is reported that the regime has basically replaced its embassy’s employees in Tirana with intelligence agents for the very same cause. In this regard the ISJ stresses on the following points:
A. Intelligence agents and spies of the Iranian regime must be expelled from the country. This is necessary for the security and safety of Iranian refugees and the security and prosperity of the people of Albania and in line with the decision of the Council of the European Union in April 1997.
B. Any former resident of Camp Liberty who is in connection with the Iranian regime embassy or its officers and agents clearly does not face any risk in Iran, must not be considered a refugee and must be deported.
Alejo Vidal-Quadras
President of International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ) Former Vice President of European Parliament (1999-2014)

Indications Iran Doubling Down on Use of Proxy Forces


Indications Iran Doubling Down on Use of Proxy Forces - See more at: http://iranprobe.com/explore/news/1857.html#sthash.4VuIrjed.dpuf

VOA
Wednesday, 31 May 2017

An influx of cash that was the byproduct of the deal Iran struck with a group of world powers to curtail its nuclear program may not be changing the way Iran goes about wielding influence across the Middle East and beyond.
A top U.S. military official says rather than using any additional monies to invest more heavily in conventional forces, there are indications Tehran continues to focus on cultivating special operators to help lead and direct proxy forces.
“If anything, increased defense dollars in Iran are likely to go toward increasing that network, looking for ways to expand it,” U.S. Special Operation Forces Vice Commander Lieutenant General Thomas Trask told an audience in Washington late Tuesday.
“We’ve already seen evidence of them taking units and officers out of the conventional side that are working with the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) in Syria,” Trask added. “We’re going to stay focused on these proxies and the reach that Iran has well past Syria and Yemen but into Africa, into South America, into Europe as well.”
The 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the JCPOA, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, gave Tehran access to an estimated $50 billion to $150 billion in previously frozen assets. It also cleared the way for Iran to seek new investment to boost its economy.
Critics of the deal feared Iran would take a large portion of that money to boost its military and expand its influence across the Middle East.
Yet despite Iran’s heavy involvement in Syria to help prop up the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, U.S. military officials see no indications much of that money has been set aside for bolstering Tehran’s conventional forces.
Nor do they see that as a likely scenario, even though the latest estimates from the U.S. intelligence community warn Iran is trying to develop “a range of new military capabilities,” including ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and armed drones.
“That takes a long time to change. You’ve really got to build a significant infrastructure,” Trask said during the event at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).
“We’re going to continue to plan primarily against that network of proxies and unconventional warfare that Iran pushes out to create that buffer for the regime,” he said.
Already, Iran is supplementing its own forces inside Syria by providing arms, financing and training for as many as 10,000 Shia militia fighters, including units from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to U.S. intelligence officials.
Military and intelligence officials further worry about the sway Iran has over tens of thousands of additional fighters who are part of Shia militias fighting in Iraq. And there are concerns Iran is trying to employ the same type of model in Yemen, where U.S. officials say it has been supplying arms and other help to Houthi forces.
“Everywhere you look, if there is trouble in the region, you find Iran,” U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last moth during a visit to Saudi Arabia, when asked about Yemen. “We'll have to overcome Iran's efforts to destabilize yet another country and create another militia in their image of Lebanese Hezbollah.”
And some analysts say that Iran will persist, even if the results are not immediate.
“You’ve seen this slow ratcheting up of what they’ve been able to do in Syria and it’s not sufficient,” said J. Matthew McInnis, a resident fellow at AEI and author of a new report on Iran’s security policy, noting Tehran’s reliance on Russian air support.
Still, Tehran has shown no signs of backing down, he said, willing to wait out its adversaries.
“We underestimated the degree to which Iran was committed to Assad,” McInnis said. “They’re going to fight as long as it takes in Syria.”

Al Arabiya English, By F. Mahmoudi
Wednesday, 31 May 2017
Pro-Iranian regime analysts and commentators pretend and promote that the regime is a regional power and should not be ignored. Such a claim is usually made under the guise of deceitful patriotism at a time when crisis and instability is rampant in the Middle East and this regime is the main reason behind it.
The Iranian regime claims that it is a regional power and commentators some times bargain intentionally in its favor, assuming that such claims may be true.
The reality on the ground is that Iranian regime, or its proxies, are present in Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and are involved in killings, ethnic cleansing, destruction and instability in these countries.
The fight to liberate Mosul from ISIS is a case in point. Heads of tribes of Arab Nineveh Province in Iraq demanded from the international community to kick out militants belonging to Hashad al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilization Forces, from Mosul and its surroundings in order to end the dominance of the region by the Iranian regime and its proxies.
In other words, the Iranian regime harvests on others’ sweat and blood and turns their misfortunes into its own gains. There is no doubt occupation of Iraq and Obama’s policy of appeasement lead to the Iranian regime’s hegemony in Iraq, Syria and destabilization of the entire region. But this is not an indication of strength or power of the Iranian regime.
On the contrary creating fear, regional crises, conflict and destabilization is the other side of the coin and just the obvious sign of hiding and covering up its own fears, worries and weaknesses that could become transparent otherwise.
On the other hand, there is the cover up of weaknesses exposed by daily imprisonments, tortures and executions of unarmed and innocent dissidents in public.
The Iranian regime dreamed of an Islamic caliphate in the region lasting for 150-200 years at the beginning of coming to power. Since it was an outdated and medieval regime, not compatible with the 21st century, this dream was unlikely to remain fulfilled.

Hijacking the revolution

On one hand, the regime has dominated Iran by hijacking the revolution, which was the result of hundred years of people’s struggle and sacrifice for freedom, justice and human rights. The major fruit of this historical struggle is a movement led by Massoud Rajavi, who was aware of Khomeini’s plan and rose against it.
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) has stood steadfast against ferocious fundamentalism and terrorism for nearly 40 years. On the other hand in the industrial (capitalist) era, a dream of medieval caliphate, is a vain idea.
To continue to survive, the regime has no choice but to suppress the public and Iranian freedom loving people, to export terrorism, creating crises in the region and around the world in order to overcome and cover up its shortcomings. Another word for this is covering the Achilles’ heel.
So what is this weakness of the Iranian regime? Before answering this, other two question must be answered:
• What caused the Iranian regime, after years of secrecy and deception, to come to the negotiation table and accepting the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)?
• What factors caused the defeat of Khamenei in his gamble of playing the Raisi card in the recent elections?

The biggest weakness or the Achilles’ heel of the Iranian regime, is the crisis of its legitimacy. In 2009, millions of Iranians raised slogans such as “down with the dictator” and “down with clerical rule”. According to government officials, this uprising almost overthrew the regime and exposed the weakness.
According to US President Donald Trump if Obama at the time had backed the Iranian people, who chanted “Obama, Obama, are you with us or with them?” the regime would have collapsed in less than six months.
The reason that the Iranian regime was forced into negotiation table was because of the fact that the involvement of the main Iranian opposition had turned Iran into widespread mine field and the regime feared that any mistake could lead into social explosion (uprising). This was of course besides the international sanctions and the regional countries’ response to involvement of the regime in Yemen.

Fake display of power

The display of power by the Iranian regime is fake. The appeasement policy of Obama and European countries facilitate a rescue package for it to continue to have such an open hand in causing crises and destabilizing countries in the region.
We have recently witnessed the Arab Summit in Saudi Arabia. Iran, whose leader calls himself a leader of the Muslim world, was not invited to the summit and the final declaration of the summit of 55 Muslim countries was against the interventionist and destabilizing policies of the regime in the internal affairs of Muslim countries.
Addressing the Summit, US President Donald Trump said: “From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms, and trains terrorists, militias, and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region. For decades, Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror”.
Among Iran’s most tragic and destabilizing interventions have been in Syria. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes. Responsible nations must work together to end the humanitarian crisis in Syria, eradicate ISIS, and restore stability to the region.

Suffering within

The Iranian regime’s longest-suffering victims are its own people. Iran has a rich history and culture but the people of Iran have endured hardships and despair under their leaders’ reckless pursuit of conflict and terror.
On 23rd May 2017, following US President visit to Saudi Arabia and his meeting with leaders of various countries in the region, the White House issued a statement related to the meeting of the heads of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the United States.
According to this statement, the leaders expressed their commitment to tackling the root causes of crises in the Middle East as well as taking more urgent steps to intensify efforts to defeat ISIS and al-Qaeda, oppose Iran’s malign interference, and ease regional conflicts and find solutions for them.
The leaders stressed strengthening the ability of GCC countries to address threats wherever they originate, confront Iran’s destabilizing activities, and work together to reduce sectarianism and regional tensions that fuel instability.
The leaders reviewed the achievements of the joint working groups that were formed to implement the outcomes of the first Gulf-American Summit in the fields of defense against ballistic missiles, arms transfers, training, combating terrorism, maritime security, cyber security, and protecting infrastructure, as well as confronting malign Iranian interference in the region.
The Iranian regime only understands the language of assertiveness and efforts are needed to deal with the Iranian regime’s meddling and stops destabilizing actions.
On May 22, National Council of Resistance of Iran, the main opposition to Islamic Republic welcomed the Arab-Islamic-American Summit positions. Maryam Rajavi, president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the positions of the Conference of Heads of Islamic Arab state, and the US against Iran’s actions.
Rajavi stressed that “condemning practices and crimes of the mullahs’ regime must take appropriate measures and in particular following should be achieved:
“The breaking of relation with the regime of clergy.” 
“Expelling it from the international community”
“Naming the Iranian Revolutionary Guards on the terrorist list and other military and para-military and security-related to the regime and expelling them from the region”.

This is how the regime’s weaknesses can be exposed.
