With Iranian regime leader Ali Khamenei attempting to compensate for his defeat in engineering the election by authorizing his guys on June 7 to target regime’s president Rouhani at their own will, a new wave of attacks on Rouhani has begun, to weaken him as well as claim a share in his upcoming government.
Warning Rouhani in this regard, head of Motalefeh band ‘Mohammad-Nabi Habibi’ said “Rouhani needs to know that sedition is regime’s red line. So, he must be careful when selecting his colleagues. Regime should not be hit twice by the same cause.” Reminding Rouhani of Khamenei’s criteria on picking cabinet members, Habibi then required Rouhani to “explicitly declare that the 2009 sedition and seditionists are his red line, particularly with regard to picking his cabinet members.”(State-run Mehr news agency, June 12, 2017)
Fire-at-will inspired attacks on Rouhani’s government by Khamenei’s band shows before anything else a clear image of Iranian regime’s deadlock in the grip of crises.
Paying the price for US satisfaction
“The United States violates in all flagrancy the nuclear deal”, said Habibi, adding “and not only did it not lift the sanctions, but added new ones as well, and called Iran ‘the center of terrorism’. Now after the nuclear deal, the US is expecting the government to pay even more. Adopting UN’s 2030 guidelines, joining FATF and following its orders, signing a nuclear-deal-like missile agreement, introducing the resistance front as the region’s terrorists, and removing Khomeini and revolution from public culture are the prices that must be paid so as to compromise with and satisfy the United States. Moreover, it’s not clear if that’s all that should be paid.” (Motalefeh band’s Resalat newspaper)
Also the Revolutionary Guards’ Javan newspaper writes in this regard “one of the main figures behind the 2009 sedition has said that we must accede to international obligations so the extremist (fundamentalists) won’t take charge.” The Revolutionary Guards linked newspaper then adds “it seems that agreeing to such treaties like the 2030 is along the same line and it’s not unlikely that the same ideology has put that on Rouhani’s table. For instance, when 2030 agenda requires that violent content be removed from educational texts, it means that such stories as the one related to martyr Fahmideh as well as Quran’s Jihad verses have to be removed from Iran’s school books. In a word, it means nothing but going backward.” The state-run newspaper then called on Rouhani and his band to declare their opposition to the UN’s 2030 agenda.
Referinh to Rouhani and his band as “those who in fear of paying a high price for challenge are seeking to adopt a compromising policy and move the Islamic Republic away from resistance and standing against the hegemonic system”, Revolutionary Guards’ Javan newspaper writes in its June-22 editorial “applying sanctions for destabilizing activities shows that there’s no imaginable end to US sanctions against the Islamic Republic. It’s quite clear that moving along the compromise path will bring about more unimaginable, unpredictable costs.”
In reaction to attacks made by Khamenei’s band, Rouhani described the attackers as those who are not able to tolerate, saying “in May-19 election, it was not a selection from between two or more candidates, but it was choosing one of two ideologies, and people chose one. There are some who don’t tolerate, and don’t try to raise their tolerance, either.”
The fact, however, is that both bands within the regime, to which Rouhani refers, are actually the same, with holding the regime in power as their main goal. And if there’s any conflict or dispute over regime’s general policies or red lines, it’s only about how to move forward or deal with those policies and red lines.
