ICFTO- The clerical regime is grappling with ways to confront expanding social networks organized by the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), a mullahs’ senior official has said.
The Director of the Intelligence Organization of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) revealed growing anxiety over the growing popularity of the PMOI among young people and protestors across Iran.
“Today, we are confronted with an anti-revolutionary movement and the organized networks of the PMOI,” Hassan Taeb was quoted as saying.
In remarks published by the state-run Fars news agency, he added, “As the dust settles, the battle lines become clearer between the revolution and those who oppose it.”
“In proportion to the weight of threats against our country, the entire world of heretics seeks to harm the Islamic Republic and its pillar.”
Meanwhile another mullah and a member of the regime’s Assembly of Experts, Ahmad Alamolhoda, said the main target of protests in Iran has been the regime’s Supreme Leader.
“The target of the seditionists is to destroy the principle of velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule),” he said, referring to protestors.
“The challenge that these seditionists pose revolves around the principle and foundations of the velayat-e faqih system.”
