The “fake opposition,” run by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, mostly acts as padding for the Islamist regime abroad.


The Trump administration placed Mohammad Javad Zarif, the foreign minister of the Islamist regime in Iran, on the U.S. sanctions list a year ago this month.


As expected, the leftist and liberal media in the West immediately made an outcry against the designation. That’s because they typically tend to portray Zarif as the moderate, peace-seeking diplomat who is at odds with the hardline, somber Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the brutal, missile-toting Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).


What they always fail to mention is that Zarif is only an agreeable showcase for the same apocalyptic regime that chants “Death to America” and calls for the destruction of Israel, and is intent upon conquering the Arab world.


In fact, Zarif runs one of the most elaborate influence campaigns in the United States on behalf of Khamenei and the IRGC.


What his extended overseas apparatus is focused on is to lower the defenses of the democratic world with sleek smiles and false narratives so that the IRGC can more destructively strike.


As such, what Zarif does is as deeply disturbing and detrimental to U.S. security interests, the Mideast and world peace as the already terrorist-designated IRGC and its liquidated Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.


The Islamic Republic is a totalitarian, isolationist, interventionist and anti-Western regime.


In order to overcome the problem of lack of domestic and international legitimacy, it has devised a mechanism that showcases the dictatorial and chaotic Islamist regime as “democratic,” “stable” and “popular,” with a fair degree of internal opposition as guarantee of its dynamism and openness.


The “reformist/moderate” faction that the regime has been promoting with the help of the leftist and liberal media in the West for more than 20 years now is precisely the manifestation of that security project of creating a fake, state-run opposition that acts as a safety valve for the regime on the domestic and international stage.
