Iran’s Oil Has Come Under the Hammer

Iran’s Oil Has Come Under the Hammer

By Mohammad Sadat Khansari

According to a state-run website known as Entekhab (Sunday 1 June 2018), the regime’s vice president, Eshaq Jahangiri, states: “Iran’s crude oil will be offered on the domestic bourse, and for the private sector who can export it in tonnages, as required. As of now, we are selling around 60 thousand barrels a day”.

Only 400 Elite Families Are Behind Iran’s Disastrous Poverty

Only 400 Elite Families Are Behind Iran’s Disastrous Poverty

By Mahmoud Hakamian

In a country oppressed by mullahs, there are only two sides to a coin: extreme wealth and extreme poverty.

One must ask, why should 400 elite families, who happen to rule the politics and economy of an entire country, get to take such massive amounts of money whilst the rest of the nation live in poverty?

Iran: Mass Protests Stemming From Fury

Behzad Naziri

At the beginning of this year, massive protests shook more than 140 cities in Iran; some of which represent the ongoing strikes of various social groups.

Analysts have been studying the regime’s 40-year-old history to pinpoint the reasons behind such unprecedented events; two viewpoints can be explored: one, is the quick transformation of these protest from general to political; for example, the people of Mashhad were heard chanting “no to high prices” one day, and “death to Khamenei” the next. Second, is the apparent radicalisation of the slogans; for e.g., the people of Kazerun (west of Shiraz) who protested the city’s division, ended up chanting “beware of the day we become armed”! Another example is the farmers of Isfahan who protested about water shortage, (especially the drying of Zayanderud), as well as the consequent demolition of their agriculture in nearby villages; like the others, this protest was also filled with screams of “death to dictator”.

World Should Listen to the Real Voices From Iran

Hosseini Abedini

Many experts believe that the Iranian regime is weaker than ever since 39 years and suggest that it is due to a variety of issues among them President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal. By having a closer look at what is happening on the Iranian streets across the country, one realises that the regime in Tehran is facing a more serious problem, which threatens the theocracy’s existence.

Revelations About Iran’s Missiles Point to Both Need and Opportunity for Regime Change

Shahin Gobadi

Last week the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) released a book detailing the recent and ongoing growth of Tehran’s ballistic missile program, which could one day provide the delivery system for an Iranian nuclear weapon. The credibility of that publication’s findings is underscored by the fact that the NCRI’s principal constituent is the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, which has revealed key details of the clerical regime’s nuclear activities and the locations of its secret enrichment sites over the years. As such, the international community needs to begin broadening its view of how to deal with the threats posed by Iran.

The Iranian Resistance: A New Factor in Iran Policy

Shahin Gobadi 

Debate over the Iran nuclear agreement notwithstanding, the international community should be ready to turn its attention to the larger question of what the correct policy is for dealing with Iran in general. While there is growing consensus on the both sides of the Atlantic about the need to take the worsening threat of the Iranian regime head on, there is some disagreement about the right way to do it, and about the threat of escalating tensions.
