This could explain Javad Zarif's anxiety:
"It should be noted that on the Internet, especially Telegram, the enemy and especially the [#MEK], have gained complete control… The terminology of regime change is gaining complete control in social media networks." -Tehran Press #Iran
The mullahs have always been fearful of #MEK's connecting to citizens. Here is what @NYTimes wrote in 1996: "Gov officials said the number of banned sites was not available, but they include those with information distributed by opposition groups like the [MEK]..." #CyberSecurity
The @NYTimes continued: ''The brains of the young are very impressionable, so the Mujahedeen Khalq [#MEK] might be able to brainwash people to join them, or they might be able to influence an election,'' said a senior Gov official familiar w/ the Internet project. #CyberSecurity

#BREAKING
#Iran has given ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in #Iraq and is developing the capacity to build more there to deter attacks on its interests in the Middle East and to give it the means to hit regional foes, Iranian, Iraqi and Western sources said.
Reuters: "According to three #Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence sources and two Western intelligence sources, Iran has transferred short-range ballistic missiles to allies in Iraq over the last few months."
#IranDeal
The Zelzal, Fateh-110 and Zolfaqar missiles in question have ranges of about 200 km to 700 km, putting Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh or the #Israeli city of Tel Aviv within striking distance if the weapons were deployed in southern or western #Iraq.

@mck_beth hides behind an individual in #Iran.

Two Individuals Charged for Acting as Illegal Agents of the Government of Iran justice.gov/opa/pr/two-ind… "collecting identifying information about American citizens and U.S. nationals who are members of the group Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK)" #terrorism #IranProtests #IranTerrorism
Lots of details in the affidavits; how well-trained the Iranian agents were & how they tried to conceal their entire spying operation. Unfortunately many years of appeasement policy has emboldened the regime to extend its #terrorism to the American soil documentcloud.org/documents/4777…
And here is the statement by the NCRI which has been the main target of the Iranian regime's spying and terror plot. It’s time to expel the agents of Iran’s MOIS and Quds Force operating under various covers in the U.S. & Europe. ncrius.org/two-intelligen…

CNN shows its hatred towards U.S. President Donald Trump by beginning its "interview" with Zarif with this line:

"The United States is addicted to applying sanctions on Iran..."

For me, this says it all about the actual intention of this entire piece.

CNN goes the distance to describe Zarif as the "key architect" of the flawed #IranDeal & using terms such "US-educated" & giving the "interview in fluent English..."

If Iranian President @HassanRouhani is a "moderate" as @CNN claims, why did the world witness the enormous crackdown of the Dec/Jan uprising spread across over 140 cities throughout #Iran?
