Not surprised that the Iranians don't want foreigners influencing their public opinion.

I am also pretty much against foreigners influencing British politics. Unfortunately the political party we have in power relies on them and won't take action.

I think this is a case of Iran trying to keep something from getting out not in.

  So only political parties rely on them? Business/ banks/ universities / medical centers/ hospitals don’t rely on them? Well I hope there is complete shut down of UK internet during elections for a week or two... without prior notice.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Intelligence Ministry announced that its forces have nabbed main figures of an anti-revolutionary network who were planning to provoke unrest in the country.

In a statement on Tuesday, the ministry noted that the circle had been planning to create unrest on December 7, concurrent with national students’ day, in universities of Tehran and other cities.

“This network intended to extend the protests of University of Tehran’s students on gasoline rationing to outside the university and trigger disturbance; but the plot was foiled thanks to the vigilance of committed students and related organizations,” reads the statement.

Some of the individuals related to this network have been identified and further information will be announced to the public after official proceedings are carried out, the statement added.

Salam it depends on the Iranian ISP few of them allow access to shiachat but majority of them don't allow access to it because they recognize it's sever as a Pakistani server because of that they are blocking it in Iran.

@Revert1963  to go with the video's theme, on the radio this afternoon,ABC News Radio reported that "over 1,000 people were killed" last month.EDIT: l found that this is "announced" by the US State Dept according to Middle East Monitor -end Edit

Some of the props with twitted feeds should be shown longer so they could be read.

One point of disagreement: at 19:08 where he says 40 years ago there were no signs of the end, ln the Sahih Sunnah there is hadith that one sign/observation will be when 'cattlemen' compete to build the highest buildings. This happened in New York in the 1920s and people made this observation.

Intelligence Ministry dismisses rumors of arresting Basij forces

https://en.abna24.com/news//intelligence-ministry-dismisses-rumors-of-arresting-basij-forces_991703.html

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Iranian Judiciary, the Intelligence Ministry, the Law Enforcement Police, and the Intelligence Department of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IDIRGC) all rejected a claim by BBC, a notorious anti-Iran media, that 10 Basij members have been arrested for charges in quelling the recent riots.

BBC Persia claimed an unnamed source as saying on the condition of anonymity that 10 members of Basij (volunteer) forces had been arrested overnight in Southwestern Tehran in connection with the recent cases of riots in Iran.

An hour later the Judiciary, the Intelligence Ministry, the Law Enforcement Police, and the IDIRGC all dismissed the claim.

BBC Persia continues anti-Iran propaganda after decades of operation.

In 1953, the British government used the BBC Persian service for advancing its propaganda against the legal government of Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq in favor of strengthening the monarchical rule of the dethroned King, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.

In a documentary Cinematograph aired on 18 August 2011 on the anniversary of the coup, the BBC admitted for the first time to the role of BBC Persian radio as the propaganda arm of the British government in Iran. The Cinematograph narrator said, "The British government used the BBC Persian radio for advancing its propaganda against Mosaddeq and anti-Mosaddeq material were repeatedly aired on the radio channel to the extent that Iranian staff at the BBC Persian radio went on strike to protest the move."

The documentary quoted a 21 July 1951 classified document in which a Foreign Office official thanked the British ambassador for his proposals that were precisely followed by the BBC Persian radio to strengthen its propaganda against Mosaddeq: "The BBC had already made most of the points which you listed, but they were very glad to have an indication from you of what was likely to be most effective and will arrange their program accordingly... We should also avoid direct attacks on the 'ruling classes' since it seems probable that we may want to deal with a government drawn from those classes should Mosaddeq fall."
 

On Wednesday, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi underlined that none of the IRGC and Basij forces who stood against the outlaws in the recent riots were armed.

"In the recent incidents, not even one of the IRGC and Basij forces was carrying weapons. We went to the towns without arms while there were many weapons pointed at us," Rear Admiral Fadavi said, addressing a forum in Tehran.

He, meantime, said the IRGC and Basij were keeping arms at their bases as usual and when the rioters attacked them, the IRGC and Basij forces defended themselves.

"But in the streets, we controlled everything comprehensively. Even we had live contacts with all parts of the country and received all images (live)," Rear Admiral Fadavi said.

 

Iran's Judiciary Spokesman Gholam Hossein Esmayeeli said on Tuesday that armed rioters and outlaws wounded and killed a number of people and policemen during the recent unrests after the protest rallies against the gasoline rationing.

"It is confirmed that a considerable number of people have been killed by the outlaws and many officers who were trying to establish order have also been wounded by the weapons of these outlaws too," Esmayeeli told reporters in a press conference in Tehran.

He, meantime, said that the number of individuals killed in the recent riots is less than what some foreign parties claim, "as they name people who have died in other incidents that are different from the recent riots and many of those people claimed to be killed are alive".

Esmayeeli said arson attacks and plundering the banks and stores and killing of innocent people and police officers were all carried out by the hooligans who were affiliated to the anti-revolutionary and dissident groups and were supported by the foreign spy agencies.

He underlined that the judiciary differentiates between the protestors against the gasoline prices and the outlaws, adding that most of the detained people during the recent unrests have been freed.

"300 people are still in detention in Tehran," Esmayeeli said, adding that the number is still to decrease.

In relevant remarks on Monday, Head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps' Public Relations Department and IRGC Spokesman Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif said rioters that destroyed public and private properties in the recent unrests in Iran were utilizing complex tools and instruments.

"The outlaws used the most equipped tools and most professional methods in the recent sedition," General Sharif said, addressing a forum in the Central city of Arak.

"The enemies are seeking to make up [for their failure] after every success Iran earns," General Sharif said.

Iranian Government Spokesman Ali Rabiyee announced last Monday that rioters used cold weapons and firearms during unrests in some cities and towns, killing and wounding a number of police forces.

"Based on reports, the rioters have repeatedly used cold weapons and firearms in some cities," Rabiyee told reporters in a press conference in Tehran.

Also, Commander of the Law Enforcement Police in Kurdistan province Brigadier General Ali Azadi announced that his forces had arrested 25 ringleaders of the recent riots, and seized 3 rifles from them.

"25 ringleaders and main culprits behind the riots in the two cities of Marivan and Sanandaj have been detained in coordination with the judicial officials and 3 firearms and some cold weapons have been discovered and seized from them," General Azadi said on Sunday.

Late last month, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said that Tehran had successfully thwarted an attempt by a small group of foreign-backed rioters to set oil facilities on fire in the iconic Persian Gulf port city of Assaluyeh, adding that the attack was meant to be in retaliation for Yemenis’ bombardment of the Saudi oil sites in September.

He added that during the recent unrests in the country, which came after the government’s decision to substantially increase the gas price, some rioters tried to attack the iconic Persian Gulf port city of Assaluyeh in the South of Iran.

“The attack on Assaluyeh had been planned by the enemy,” according to Shamkhani.

Innocent victims of recent riots considered as 'martyrs'

 

Iran's Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs announced in a statement that the victims of the recent riots, who had no role in them, are considered martyrs based on the Leader's guidelines.

In response to the letter of the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said On Wednesday: “Deal with the suspicious individuals in any group with an approach that is close to ‘Islamic compassion' principle.”

Ali Shamkhani had submitted a report to Ayatollah Khamenei, proposing ideas for handling the situation of those killed or injured during the recent violent unrest in Iran.

The Leader said that "ordinary citizens who didn't play any role in the protest but were caught in the middle of the clashes and lost their lives should be considered as martyrs" and called on the relevant authorities to put their families under the protection of the Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans.

On the situation of those who lost their lives during armed clashes with the security forces, Ayatollah Khamenei called for investigating the history and background of their families, separating honorable families from those who were involved in criminal acts.

The Leader further called on the authorities to sympathize with the families of those victims who were not involved in criminal activities.

On dealing with families of the third group, who look suspicious of doing evil activities, the Leader called for treating them based on the ‘Islamic compassion' principle.

Imam Khamenei urges

 

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called on the country's judicial authorities on Wednesday to act with “Islamic mercy” with those who were involved in the recent riots that followed a sharp rise in petrol prices.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): 
"The faster these cases are considered, the better and those who are suspected of being close to any group should be dealt with in a way that is closer to Islamic mercy," replied Ayatollah Khamenei to a report by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council about the recent unrest in the country.

According to the Supreme Leader, citizens that were caught in crossfire and riots and died without playing any role in instigating them will be regarded as “martyrs” and their families should be covered by the Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs.

Ayatollah Khamenei also instructed officials to pay compensation to the families of those who were killed in the demonstrations and unrest in any form and to give advice to their families.

Supreme Leader, meantime, urged the authorities to first inspect and study background and family history of those who were killed in shootouts with security forces and then console those families that have never had any criminal backgrounds.

Russian FM blames US' policies for recent unrest in Iran

https://en.abna24.com/news//russian-fm-blames-us-policies-for-recent-unrest-in-iran_992001.html

Russian FM blames US' policies for recent unrest in Iran

 

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called US’ destabilizing policies the main reason behind the recent unrest in Iran.

“These problems were caused by the US since it unilaterally imposed sanctions on Iran, withdrew from JCPOA but forces all the parties including Iran to comply with the deal.”
“I do not even know how to describe the issue,” he said, “it is a surrealistic approach.
Americans prevent everyone from implementing the UN security council resolution, the one they have invalidated.”

The US seeks to create economic conditions in Iran to make Iranians discontent and we have seen the same plan implemented in Venezuela, he added.

The Russian official reiterated that his country still believes in holding talks to resolve the problems.
