Signs of a Faltering Regime in Iran

Signs of a Faltering Regime in Iran

By Reza Shafiee

Hardly anyone believes these days that Tehran's regime is in control. Second round of US sanctions hit hard Iran's theocratic regime on November 4th; a day meaningful both for Iran and the United States. November 4, 1979 marks the start of a 444 days of captivity for American diplomats in Iran. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani's new plan is "hope-therapy" for pushing back against protests caused by economic challenges in the country.

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?
