Hossein Shariatmadari, firebrand honcho of the Supreme Leader’s mouthpiece newspaper, Kayhan suggested on Wednesday that targeting “strategic military and economy centers” of the US, Israel, France, and Saudi Arabia should be targeted and retaliated against for their alleged support of the Iranian protesters. He describes it as Iran’s legit right to do so. Meanwhile, Iranian protesters are demanding that they stop referring to themselves as ‘Iran’ as they neither represent the Iranian people, nor the Iranian nation’s interest, but that of a Shi’a cabal that is using Iran’s assets in order to wreak international havoc.
Shariatmadari called for the execution of protesters. In a panic over the spread of anti-government protests in Iran, Kayhan, referring to Iranian civil rights protesters wrote: “Hoodlums should prepare for the noose…as their religious punishment is execution.”
Shariatmadari made the claim: “It’s possible to bring them to their knees through imposing heavy financial and military damage. Their sensitive and strategic military and economy centers are easily accessible.” Shariatmadari did not offer details on how they would carry out such retaliation.
On Monday as well, Shariatmadari called for the execution of protesters. In a panic over the spread of anti-government protests in Iran, Kayhan, referring to Iranian civil rights protesters wrote: “Hoodlums should prepare for the noose…as their religious punishment is execution.”
In the interim, the regime is already planning on massacring the thousands they’ve arrested over the past week. The judiciary chief, Ebrahim Raisi, who oversaw the 1988 massacre of political prisoners, said today, before a gathering of Basij member, that “Under no circumstances will we allow the least amount of disruption.” Ahmad Khatami, another leading cleric, referred to the protestors as “corrupt on earth” (the highest level of crime under the Islamic regime’s laws) and called for their execution.
Meanwhile, news broke on Friday, that Massoud Molavi, an anti-regime Iranian journalist who had been living in exile in Istanbul, Turkey, was assassinated by regime agents on November 14th. Turkey, which is very friendly with the Tehran regime, has been the scene of multiple assassinations of Iranian dissidents for decades. Molavi was probably targeted because he had set up a computer hacking organization that pierced the Ministry of Information’s network and exposed some of the regime officials’ corrupt business dealings. Mohammad Jahromi, the above-mentioned Minister of Communications and I.T. is specifically being accused of having murdered Molavi.
Violence is still occurring, though video documentation. Eyewitnesses in Tehran say that the IRGC and demonstrators are still clashing on the streets. According to one doctor at a Tehran hospital, 100 people are being shot and injured every day.
More than 352 deaths have been reported though the numbers are still developing. Hundreds of civilians have been killed and wounded and thousands have been detained following protests across the country. So far, the total number of casualties that is known of has occurred in 43 cities, 15provinces.
Below, women in Esfahan, accompanied by male protesters sit down in the middle of the road to stop them from them killing any other protesters. They ask the special forces: “Why do you want to shoot?” But the agents attacked the crowd with tear gas and pepper spray and beat them with batons.
