“Heavy blow” for mullahs in Iran

In an interview with the state-run Fars news agency, Mohammad-Reza Naeri, a member of the faction close to the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader said, “I think the sedition that was created and the subsequent incidents dealt an extremely heavy and serious blow to the image of the Islamic Republic. This incident opened other wounds and brought about the fire that was hidden under the ashes.”

He suggested that the Iranian regime has not been influential in the cultural and historical spheres leading “students and youngsters to come to streets and chant against the establishment.” In other words, he said, “people have lost trust and our image and links [with people] have been broken.”

In such circumstances, “the enemy attracts the people,” Naeri added. He specifically pointed to the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), which enjoys popular support in Iran and said, “Even if they print and smuggle in the text of Massoud Rajavi’s most recent statement in large numbers through the airport, no one could prevent it,” he said referring to the PMOI’s historical leader.
