Many opinions have been published and theories put forward about the nature of the Islamic regime in Iran. The following need to be emphasized with regards to this matter:
1-Leaders of the Islamic regime in Iran are deceitful and corrupt elements who will abuse religion and the simple-minded faithful in order to maintain their hold on power.
2-Leaders of the Islamic republic of Iran have made every attempt to demolish and denigrate the Iranian culture and identity. In the past three decades they have propagated the culture of substance abuse, prostitution, corruption, and deceit.
3-Leaders of the Islamic republic of Iran have shown their terrorist and anti-democratic tendencies in the past three decades. The experience of the past three decades indicate that they will commit any crime both abroad and inside the country to achieve their objectives.
4-In order to maintain their power and influence in the Middle East and other places, the leaders of the Islamic republic of Iran have organized terrorist groups and set up smuggling networks. They use these networks to create instability around the world. They murder opposition figures both abroad and inside the country to achieve their objectives.
Through the work of a number of freedom loving Iranian nationals we have gained invaluable concrete information from within the mafia-like networks of the regime.
Leaders of the theocratic regime in Tehran make extensive use of front organizations in employing agents of the Iranian Information Ministry and the Revolutionary Guards under the disguise of cultural and financial advisors, who are sent around the globe representing trade, cultural and manufacturing entities. These front organizations have been able to distribute funds overseas. Terrorist elements posing as businessmen and venture capitalist further establish the regime’s networks and have even attempted to infiltrate the Iranian opposition groups.
We have solid evidence that the regime’s agents have robbed museums of antiques and rare artifacts to smuggle them outside the country along with illegal substances to cover their costs. Examples include:
1-An Information Ministry and Revolutionary Guard operative, Mojtaba Bigdeli, has set up a company in Turkey through which millions of dollars have been transferred to banks in Turkey and Switzerland.
2-Oriental Oil Company in Dubai, specializing in chemical deals such as kerosene and gasoline, has the Iranian high officials on its roster of partners: Taherian and Hadj Morteza (representing Khamenei), Safdari (the Revolutionary Guards), Sirus Naderi, Hossein Sharifi (the Information and Defense Ministries), Shamkhani (Revolutionary Guards and Defense Ministry liaison), Hosseinian (one of the leaders of Ansar Hizbollah), Mohsen Ezhehyi (Information Ministry).
3-A separate network has stolen the statue of Ario Barzan, a commander of the Dariush III’s army (the last Achamenid emperor) from Iran’s national museum. The statue weighing more than six pounds and standing at 27 inches was shipped out of the country, and sold to an antiques dealer in London for $40m. A video clip showing the transportation of this statue by the regime’s Mafia-like network is available here.
4-The mullah’s regime seems to have divided the economical and trade opportunities with different countries into zones of influence and have given each zone to a different faction of mullahs. Each faction has installed its special representative who oversees Iran’s economical relations with that particular country in such a way that no trade or financial dealing can take place without the special envoy’s approval.
5-The regime’s terrorist elements travel to various countries using diplomatic passports, and contact with sleeper cells and regime’s agents in those countries. These networks enjoy vast financial resources with which they pay off Islamic terrorist groups.
6-Following the assassination of Kurdish leaders in Mikonos restaurant in Berlin, the German secret police closed down some of the companies that were fronts to Iran’s Ministry of Information. This action prompted Tehran to arrest several German nationals, and kept them in custody for a long time.
7-base on recent reports, the theocratic regime in Tehran has sent its criminal agents to western countries disguising themselves as political exiles, applying for asylum. The aim of the regime is to infiltrate the opposition groups. We have obtained the names of some of these agents.
