What Stalin and Hitler began, fascist zealots want to accomplish on behalf of the Islamic revolution in Iran and the rest of the planet.
Since 33 years, the so-called Islamic revolution in Iran has more and more been showing its ugly face. What in 1979 for many Iranians began as the greatest adventure of political freedom and participation, has increasingly grown in always tighter stages to a real fascist dictatorship. The dream of the just system of velayat-e-faghi (rule of the supreme religious leader, who is connected to God and acts as an intermediary for the “people”), which should serve as a model for the whole world, turned out as a bitter disillusionment even for those followers who dedicated their life to this cause.
The false pharao
Khamenei and his son
When the revolutionary leader Khomeini died in 1987, the question of his Velayat-e-faghi system was a problematic weak point that still to date hasn’t offered a satisfactory solution. In benefit of Ali Khamenei, the constitution was even simply changed so that he could be installed as Supreme Leader. His religious sanctifications were and are meager. He hasn’t been maintaining his power for more than 20 years with an impressive performance but with money, positions, intimidation tactics and brutal coercion and violence. The nearness to God is slyly staged and can only convince little even devout Muslims. In ancient Egypt the Pharaohs also claimed a closeness to God in order to legitimize their rule and to demand obedience. Khamenei seems to emulate them. He is a Pharaoh with poor legitimacy.
The only thing that we have to admit is the fact that men of the revolution like Rafsanjani offered him the throne to preserve the system. Now Khamenei holds to his Pharaoh turban at any cost. He is in both senses of the word a false Pharaoh. Ayatollah Montazeri was originally intended to be the successor of Khomeini, however was forced in time to the sidelines. Montazeri spoke out against the massacre of political opponents in the 80’s and Khamenei came into the office. His lack of qualifications for this office, that premised the highest spiritual, moral and character requirements, represents the second meaning of false.
The fox in the shadow
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was a man of the early days of the Islamic Republic of Iran and a close confidant of Ayatollah Khomeini, the charismatic revolutionary leader. In the wake of the presidential elections of 2009, the camp of Ahmadinejad accused Rafsanjani of corruption and forced him out of the center of power. His political life is hanging at a thread, he is currently still the Chairman of the Expediency Council. Meanwhile, his voice is seldom heard in the socio-political events in Iran, but in late April 2012, he seems to go back into the ring. He reproached the quarrellers  of the establishment they are leading the country into the abyss, since the population will lose all respect when the representatives of the state accuse each other publicly of corruption. Some chess moves in the big power game may still be expected from Rafsanjani.
Ahmadinejad and the magician
The relationship of the false Pharaoh with his President seems sometimes to be on the verge of collapse. Always questions of legitimacy are behind the superficial skirmish. Since the false Pharaoh Ali Khamenei feels himself threatened in the first place by the visions of Rahim Mashaei about the importance of Ahmadinejad regarding the return of the Twelfth Imam’s, he must always remind his president to his place. The dispute over the replacement of the Intelligence Minister with someone of Ahmadinejad’s followers in 2011 raises some questions. Shortly after Ahmadinejad wanted to take over the ministry by the dismissal of Heydar Moslehi and Khamenei had opposed this move, there was a wave of arrests within Ahmadinejad’s circle. The alleged magician, Abbas Amirifar,  and other friends of the President were arrested and are free again now. It means that Ahmadinejad has a means of putting pressure to keep his place. Rahim Mashaei, of whom is said to have close ties to the Indian magicians, provided him with explosive secret documents that could cost head and neck of a large part of the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The tired guard
Once a glorious leader of the Revolutionary Guards and less successful candidate for the post of president in 2009, Mohsen Rezaei launches at present via his website Baztab interesting insights into events and relationships in Iran, taking place in the shadow of daily politics. He too is a man of the first hours of the system and over the years was able to build up the best connections. In early May 2012, in a detailed article, he pointed to the resumption of the activities of the group that cooperated with Said Emami. These people want to portray Said Emami as a martyr and revive his ideals.
The proud murderer
Ruhollah Hosseinian is considered to be a ruthless killer who boasts to have done his religious duty, because he killed people. He is regarded as a supporter of Ahmadinejad. His career in the dark cellars full of state secrets and his activities in the planning for the physical annihilation of enemies is long and signifies that this man is a convinced revolutionary. Among other positions, he directs the Center for Documents of the Islamic Revolution . The insights into the files of the previous service SAVAK was very helpful for the planning of new crimes. Under his aegis, yet another zealot was working who was sacrificed in the era under Khatami to protect the establishment.
The sacrificed servant
Said Emami originates from a Jewish family in Iran. He studied in the U.S. and had been working for many years under Ali Fallahian and Ruhollah Hosseinian in the Ministry of Intelligence. Ali Khamenei entrusted his family to Emami during a long stay in London. From this period dates his intimacy with Mojtaba Khamenei, a son of Ali Khamenei. Emami is considered to be the planner of several murders of dissidents, including the parents of Parastou Forouhar. In this context, he was arrested and interrogated. Several documents about his role in the killings can be found on the Internet. 
Emami died in prison because he had allegedly been drinking arsenic-containing depilatories. Political observers describe this information as a pale duck and believe it is more likely that he was eliminated because high standing personalities within the system feared his incriminating statements.
In Iran, the political landscape consists of numerous political alliances, coalitions and interest groups and it is for Western Iran experts very confusing, while almost every day coalitions change and new named coalitions originate. A look behind the scenes will be helpful to understand who is hiding behind the bushes and what kind of intentions are hidden.
The “bad” and the “good” Principalists
They are competing for seats in parliament, accuse each other of corruption and still all the factions, that are officially approved by the Guardian as loyal to the regime and allowed to be political active, consider themselves as true Islamic revolutionaries. There are some small isolated groups, and roughly said, three main factions that compete for the strongest influence and try to bring the respectively other factions behind them.
Associated with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems to be the fraction Jebhe Paydari (Resistance Front) of Mesbah Yazdi, a philosopher of violence. In opposition are the somewhat traditionalist-minded clerics from Qom with Mohammad Yazdi, and Mahdavi Kani with the Tehran bazaar merchants. The third faction is the party Hezbeh Motalefeh with Mohammad-Nabi Habibi and the Asgarolladi brothers.
All fractions count between their parliamentarians poorly educated Basij and loyal Revolutionary Guards, who like to dispute each other and utter gross insults as enforcement methods in Madjless. Apart from degenerated morals the so called Usulgerayan have a kind of loyality to principles in common. They take Ali Khamenei’s part, despite crises in questions of legitimacy, credibility and economic decline.
The army of shadow warriors
In addition to these official positions in Iran, there are a variety of informers of any kind: intelligence services, guards and agents. The Pasdaran have their own services, the Basij have their own agents, the president, the Ministry of Information, the Supreme Leader: all have their own “eyes”, “ears” and “hands” in the great competition for power. There are also breeding grounds for propaganda and brainwashing, which are responsible for the active destruction of various groups considered as opponents in and outside Iran.
The arrogant guards
Critic of Khamenei: Grand Ayatollah Bayat-e-Zanjani
Dreaded visitors are the agents of the Sepah-e Pasdaran, the agents of the Revolutionary Guards. They operate outside the law, as the following example will show. Ayatollah Bayat Zanjani is a Shiite dignitary of the rank of Marja – a source of emulgation. He is one of the few dignitaries who dared to criticize publicly the actions of the regime against individuals and the population in Iran. His criticism was also aimed at the Supreme Leader himself. This brought him in the spring of 2012 an unannounced visit of some agents of the Sepah-e Pasdaran who entered his house without a search warrant or other court order and without making themselves known, confiscated all what the cleric had ever written.
Ammaryioun, the masters of hate
Intertwined with the intelligence service of the Pasdaran are the so-called masters of hate. The of Ammaryioun is a kind of think tank. The head of these people is Mehdi Taeb, a prominent member Said Ghasemi. Another interlinkage is the fact that Hossein Taeb as the brother of Mehdi Taeb leads the intelligence service of the Basij. These ideologues are responsible for the formation of cadres within the Revolutionary Guards. Core of their ideology is the belief in the principle of a Supreme Leader led by God, who will start the time of last stage. Anyone who opposes this leader can be destroyed with brute force in accordance with this philosophy. It is fueled by hatred against Western enemy conceptions as imperialism, Zionism, capitalism and, more recently, “Western Islam” = Sufism, using these hostile labels to defamate their opponents, who are then exposed to attacks by “trained” hooligans.
Research Institute of sects and religions
In 2010, Ali Khamenei went to Qom to try to repair the damage of the presidential elections of 2009. He had many discussions with mullahs of lower ranks and department heads who were summoned to the interview. Khamenei didn’t get any support from the dignitaries. His trip to Qom resulted however in some changes in the schools of mullahs. The once-renowned Institute of religions and spiritual movements  was taken away from under the hands of Abol Hossein Navab, and transformed into the Institute of sects and religions. The management of the institution was given to a previously by the court for clergies convicted young mullah. Abdul Rahim Biranvand  had already distinguished himself as a troublemaker during the protests outside the Danish embassy, was later banished from Boroujerd by the court for clergies for 70 days because he was found responsible for the unrest in Boroujerd and the subsequent destruction of the meeting house of Dervishes. He continued his career as an agitator against the Dervishes in Karaj. His efforts seem to have paid off, for he has been leading the said institution since the end of 2010 and is responsible for the campaign to eliminate the dervishes in Iran, and especially the Nematollahi Gonabadi order. A goal that he is pursuing conscientiously. In the Tehran metro stations, his young Talabeh have installed “information tables” with mud-slinging flyers against “false” mystics and are tirelessly working to persuade the passers-by.
The circle of the Illustrious
Indeed, Biranvand operates out of his own conviction but not of his own drive. His longtime mentor and friend is Mullah Ali Keschvari. Their spiritual relationship can be seen from the fact that also Keschvari was banned out of town for 70 days in connection with the riots in Boroujerd. Keschvari is considered to be the leader of the Basiji who committed the violent destruction of homes and centers of dervishes. He writes for Raja News, a site that is run by hardliners. He also comes from Boroujerd. What is special about Keschvari is his membership to a “Circle of Illustrious”, whose members are about the same age as Mojtaba Khamenei and pass in and out Khamenei’s home for special audiences. Strategies to secure the power are discussed here and special events are planned. Keschvari’s articles contain statements which are a little later publicly repeated by Ali Khamenei, which leads to the conclusion that he is a guest at Khamenei’s and has the permission to broach specific topics. His articles are mainly related to an ideological subject: Edalat. Edalat means equality. An equality that relates to the same mistreatment of disobedient citizens.
The boss of the thugs
Alireza Panahian, schoolmate of Mojtaba Khamenei is also one of the “Circle of Illustrious”. When the rivalry between Ali Khamenei and Ahmadinejad became apparent, the servient Panahian took the floor for his supreme leader and demanded indirectly the execution of Ahmadinejad , to whom he still had tuned possitivily his Basiji a short time before. Panahian acted again and again as the leader of rioutous Basiji, who operate violently and destructively against individuals, embassies of other countries  or dervishes. Also Panahian belongs to the winners of the protests on the streets and the subsequent actions to consolidate power by Ali Khamenei. He was appointed as the head of a kind of think tank for universities .
Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood
The ideals of the French Revolution of 1789 are in their slogans-like shape sufficiently known. The citizens of the Old World demanded freedom because they could not determine on many issues. As equality, equal treatment before the law was subsumed, which should be fairly and equitably designed and should allow all citizens equal opportunities, what was not really possible in the highly structured feudal society. Brotherhood means something, what we now call solidarity, a responsibility that does not stop at the own advantage and understand economies as fair, partnership activity.
The interpretation of equality that spills from Keschvari’s pen into the world is not connected with an equality before the law in a constitutional state but with an equality in the treatment of all subjects without regard to rank and name, who do not obey the commands of the Supreme Leader. A subtle and absolute power consolidating notification.
The hounding of Kavar
In September 2011 , a young mullah went to the province and incited groups of violent Basiji against dervishes. The pattern is often the same. First they instigate, the dervishes are being denounced and associated with the enemies of the regime, then there are physical attacks against dervishes and their homes and businesses and eventually regular police forces siding the Basiji intervene and crackdown on the Dervishes.  After the action in Kavar one dervish, Vahid Banani, was shot at protests against these practices in neighboring Sarvestan. A website operated by dervishes, Majzooban Noor, was closed and almost all employees taken into custody. A few managed to escape by fleeing to Turkey. The crime of these people was only to report on events in Kavar.
The group of the false Pharaoh doesn’t like the light of the publicity. Not every citizen can be gagged by threats, defamation, bribe or promise of benefits.
These men operate in the shadow and wipe out their brutal tracks. Their plans are far-reaching and have been implemented into action step by step since the 1990’s. Ideological embellishments, fixations of the enemy and cleansing the system and the country of dissidents are part of the program of these fascist zealots.
In the West, this growing threat is underestimated. Many divert their attention from it, others deliberately play it down in favor of short-term profits. No one will do himself and his descendants a favor with it. Prince Mojtaba and his highness Ali Khamenei, however take good care of their benefice.
