SSF official announces creation of commission to confront popular uprisings

The deputy commander of the Iranian regime’s State Security Forces (SSF) has announced the creation of a commission for “psychological operations” in order to confront protests and uprisings against the regime’s plans to cut subsidies. Bahman Kargar, whose comments were published by the state-run Fars news agency this week, said, “The psychological operations commission is mandated to analyze and review the day-to-day social issues and challenges, as well as the social wounds that the enemies seek to exploit.” “This includes the law of targeted subsidies and such instances, which will be reviewed regularly in this commission in the presence of its members and experts,” he added. Describing the Iranian people’s protests against the clerical regime as “psychological warfare,” Kargar said, “Psychological warfare is a lot more challenging and difficult to deal with than a military conflict.” Meanwhile, the deputy commander of the paramilitary Bassij Force, Fazeli, used the analogy of “flames burning under the ashes” to describe the situation of the Iranian society. He said, “Such an extensive sedition was unprecedented in the revolution’s history.” “In order to prevent further seditions, awareness must be continuously raised, because the enemies of the establishment are not sitting idly and are actively seeking ways to harm the establishment. The sedition is analogous to flames still burning under the ashes.”

German official condemns regime for systematic abuses

A human rights official in Germany has strongly criticized the Iranian regime’s abysmal and systematic human rights violations, saying that the German government considers such abuses to be unacceptable, Germany’s official radio station reported on Thursday. Markus Löning, Germany’s Federal Government Human Rights Commissioner, specifically pointed to a hunger strike by an Iranian female rights activist and lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, who has been imprisoned by the Iranian regime for more than two months. He called for Ms. Sotoudeh’s immediate release.

Norwegian minister criticizes regime for exporting terror

Norway’s Minister of Justice has accused the Iranian regime of exporting terrorism abroad and said his country will not issue visas to mullahs who are sent by the Iranian regime to incite terrorism and violent acts in Norway, according to al-Arabiya TV’s website on Thursday. In an interview with Norway’s official TV channel, Knut Storberget voiced deep frustration over the Iranian regime’s destructive influence in Norway and added, “Mullahs who come from Iran and who train others in terrorist operations can be denied visas.” The Norwegian justice minister added, “The fact that these individuals encourage others to perpetrate violent acts is definitely unlawful and warrants prosecution.” Last week, Norway’s NRK TV station aired a report about the activities of Majma’ Ahl-e Beyt, an organ tasked with exporting the Iranian regime’s terrorism. The report accused the clerical regime of sending reactionary clerics to Norway to encourage violence and hate propaganda.

Unfortunately Canada has not reacted in the same manners. The agents of the Iranian regime and the Iranian Mullahs come to this country easily in the aim of exporting terrorist activities and spying on dissidents.
