Tehrans Friday prayer leadedSpeaking at the Friday prayer congregation in Tehran, the prayer leader Ali Akbari demanded the death penalty for Iran protesters.
In a part of his disgusting remarks Ali Akbari said on November 29: “We must take security issues more seriously than before, firmly and based on sharia laws.

The rulling of mohareb (enmity against God) specified for those type of people is among the highest Islamic punishments.
Following this latest threat, we expect this opportunity be used to cleanse the society of these vicious rioters. Hopefully, God’s revenge will be taken through law enforcement authorities and the judiciary.”

iran protestIran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei backed gasoline price increases today, calling the protesters “hooligans.” He openly ordered for a decisive crackdown on the protesters and instructed the security forces to act in line of their “duties.”
Khamenei also blamed opponents of the Iranian regime and foreign enemies for “sabotage,” state television reported.
He described those setting fire to public property during the protests as “bandits” backed by the enemies of Iran, without elaborating.
“Some people are no doubt worried by this decision … but sabotage and arson is done by hooligans not our people. The counter-revolution and Iran’s enemies have always supported sabotage and breaches of security and continue to do so,” he said, according to state TV.
Khamenei said the increase in gasoline prices was based on expert opinion and should be implemented, but he called on officials to prevent hikes in prices of other goods.

Iran arrest partyOfficials in the northern city of Kelardasht in Mazandaran Province say 13 young men and women were arrested Thursday in a “mixed-gender night party”, according to the state-run Fars news agency.

Fars known to be affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) said six women and seven men were arrested in a night party where alcohol was being served but didn’t provide further details on those arrested.

Drinking alcohol and attending parties of unrelated men and women is illegal in Iran.

The regime does not recognize or respect Iranian’s right to privacy and mobilizes all its forces to crack down on civil liberties.

Hundreds of people have been detained in private mixed gender parties over the past year. 

In late October, the Iranian authorities arrested 15 men and women at a mixed-gender party at the Iranian island of Qeshm.
