ANALYSIS: Iranian regime’s policy of dumbing down the population

Wednesday, 14 February 2018

The Iranian regime’s ban on the teaching of English in its schools is just an extension of its attempt at dumbing down the population in order to force feed them the ideology of Ruhollah Khomeini. It is a method which it has aggressively employed against ethnic groups such as the Ahwazi Arabs in Khuzestan since the 1979 revolution. Persianization of an Arab province The oil-rich province of Khuzestan, which was originally known for its Arab culture and demography and was even called ...

Is Khomeinism dying?

Wednesday, 14 February 2018

What’s currently happening in Iran is much more than a wave of popular protests or disputes among the Khomeini regime’s different wings or a game between hawks and doves.

When the Roman Empire was close to collapse, it had been notching up victories in foreign wars, while at home economic stagnation had taken hold, political corruption was rife, and as a result of the administration’s money wasting, much of which came in the form of military spending, the poor had taken the brunt of the country’s woes, and as a result, serious ...

Khomeini regime and its American connections

Thursday, 11 January 2018

One of the slogans which the Khomeini regime deceptively raised is “Death to America.” It made political gains via this propaganda which also included slogans about Jerusalem and Palestine. Observers can tell that Iran’s involvement in the Palestinian cause is recent and sudden. The guardians of the Khomeini regime have always worked to serve the interests of the regime which has nothing to do with the propaganda it sells to its supporters and to some sick elites. The ...
