Hypocritical Iran regime increasing its foreign spies’ activities
In addition to its military adventurism in the Middle East and its meddling in the domestic policies of other countries, the Iranian regime is escalating its employment of spies and special agents to interfere in the sociopolitical, religious and socioeconomic landscapes of other nations. This policy is not only implemented in the Middle East, but also in the US and the EU.
Iran is increasingly utilizing agents who are very unlikely to appear, or be detected, as spies. For example, the US Department of Justice last year said that two individuals were acting as spies for the Islamic Republic. One of them, Majid Ghorbani, 59, worked at a Persian restaurant in California. The other, Ahmadreza Mohammadi Doostdar, 38, is an American-born citizen of Iranian descent. Doostdar holds both Iranian and American citizenship. They were accused of spying on Jewish and Israeli facilities, as well as collecting information about members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq.
This will likely cause more tension, and impose fear, within the Persian community, which is mostly centered in California. Carrying out acts of espionage in the US also poses a danger to the lives of Americans, since the Tehran regime views the US as the “great Satan,” its No. 1 enemy, and strives to damage its national security. Assistant Attorney General John Demers acknowledged that: “Doostdar and Ghorbani are alleged to have acted on behalf of Iran, including by conducting surveillance of political opponents and engaging in other activities that could put Americans at risk. With their arrest and these charges, we are seeking to hold the defendants accountable.”
