1/ Did you know that the Iranian regime has been waging a sophisticated campaign in the U.S. Congress against the #Iran uprising & those seeking change in Iran?

The campaign uses MAHSA, who was murdered in Sep 2022 by the regime, to cover its true agenda.

2/ The regime in #Iran aims to derail the revolution & target those seeking regime change, particularly the MEK, the main Iranian opposition.

Using various individuals & dubious groups as cover, Tehran seeks to demonize the MEK & NCRI’s President-Elect @Maryam_Rajavi.
3/ By portraying the ongoing revolution in #Iran as an attempt to return to Shah’s dictatorship, the regime hopes to deflate the uprising inside Iran and discourage international support.

Massenvergiftungen von Schülerinnen im #Iran, ein #Thread:
Die Zahl der vergifteten Schulmädchen übersteigt inzwischen die Tausendergrenze. Die Vergiftungen dauern seit drei Monaten an. Man kann sie nicht mehr zählen. Das Ausmaß deutet auf eine wohl organisierte Gruppe hin.👇🏾
Das Bildungs- sowie das Gesundheitsministerium haben implizit angedeutet, dass eine „eigenwillig, extremistische“ Gruppe, die Frauen von Bildung abhalten möchte, dahinter stecke.
Der Sicherheitsapparat hingegen haben sich bisher nicht geäußert, es hat keine Festnahmen gegeben.👇🏾
In sozialen Medien machen viele Regime-kritische Persönlichkeiten den Staat und dessen Anhänger für die Angriffe verantwortlich.
Auch Eltern vergifteter Schülerinnen sehen es so. Heute riefen sie auf einer Versammlung: „Tod der Islamischen Republik.“ 👇🏾

#IranRevolution will reach victory when we all put our focus on the people of Iran shouldering the fight against the IRGC.

#WomenLifeFreedom #Mahsa_Amini #IranProtests #IranRevolution2023
After more than 120 years of struggling for freedom against dictatorships, the Iranian people deserve democracy. #WomenLifeFreedom #IranProtests #IranRevolution
Comparisons of bad and worse are never accepted, torture and killing political dissidents will not be allowed in a future Iran. There shouldn't be any praise of the SAVAK or the brutal IRGC, both of which have suppressed the Iranian people. #WomenLifeFreedom #IranProtests

“Many people say that if they get killed in the protest, their family will die of hunger.”

My new piece on why protests in #Iran have quieted down - for now. There are several reasons for this, as explained in the piece, and below 🧵… #iranprotests
First, it’s important to point out while street protests have tapered off, a quieter form of rebellion has taken hold. Embers of discontent continue to smolder and will flare up again for sure, even if authorities have the upper hand for now. (2/9)
Thousands of women in Tehran now walk outside without a hijab. It’s a new form of civil disobedience that will be difficult to contain in the future. There’s a limit to how many teenagers and young women the state can beat and arrest before things implode. Iran knows that (3/9)

I have watched the Iranian people rise up against the dictatorship of the shah and the religious dictatorship...I believe Iranian people demand for freedom&democracy has prevailed over decades of brutal, oppressive rule under both the shah and mullahs.
#IranRevolution2023 #Iran
The reason the uprising has continued so long is because of people’s demand for justice, also the organized resistance that has been able to lead the effort to overthrow the religious dictatorship, and the MEK’s very important role
#IranRevolution2023 #Iran
There is a democratic, secular, non-nuclear alternative to this regime. And one can see that in the ten-point plan of Madam Rajavi and the NCRI, there is an alternative.

How to evaluate the Baghdad II Summit in Amman?

Has this second Summit helped defusing tensions & strengthening cooperation as #Russia-#Ukraine conflict increasingly impacts this MENA region?

A THREAD 🧵 1/13 Image
1/13 Let’s start with positive points. In continuity with Baghdad I Summit (August 2021), the conference built on a solid policy line:

Iraq & regional stability are interdependent: reg. tensions play out in Iraq. Iraq’s instability can spill over & fuel regional tensions.
2/13 The Summit helped the process of Iraq’s balanced & diversified FP to continue despite the change of PM.

Some GCC states knew little & looked with suspicion at new PM Mohamed Shia al-Sudani backed by traditional Shiite parties. In-person meetings help building trust. Image

Beste mensen, hier is mijn 10e wekelijkse analysedraad🧵over #IranProtests👇

Nope, #Iran has not abolished the #MoralityPolice, as Western media euphorically claim! Rather, it is an appeasement & diversion tactic of the regime after more than 2.5 months of #IranProtests & thus not to be mistaken as a concession: Here's why🧵
Iranian state media have circulated a prosecutor's statement from Sat. suggesting such a step. But there is no legal decision on the matter.
First of all, one should not forget: the rigid hijab/dress code is an indispensable pillar of the Islamic Republic, inseparable from its identity.

Nein, #Iran hat nicht die #Sittenpolizei/#MoralityPolice aufgelöst, wie westl. Medien nahezu euphorisch verbreiten! Vielmehr ist es ein Beschwichtigungs- & Ablenkungsmanöver des Regimes nach über 2,5 Mon. #IranProtests & somit auch keine Konzession diesen gegenüber: Here's why 🧵
Iranische Staatsmedien verbreiten ein Statement eines Staatsanwalts von gestern, der solch eine Auflösung suggeriert. Doch es gibt keinerlei rechtliche Entscheidung hierzu.
Zunächst sollte man nicht vergessen: die rigiden Hijab/-Kleidervorschriften sind ein unabdingbarer Pfeiler der Islamischen Republik, untrennbar mit seiner Identität verbunden.

Yesterday, @UNICEF condemned violence against children in Iran.

It noted that Iran is a party to the Convention on the Rights of the Child & must "fulfil the rights of children to life, privacy, freedom of thought & peaceful assembly."…
The over 50 Iranian children & adolescents killed since September underscores the total disregard that Iranian authorities have for their international obligations. They weren't just killed at protests, but while in the car w/ their parents, or in raids at schools. Image

Embarrassing moment for #Iran's embattled Govt when members of its national team at #Qatar stadium boycotted the anthem of the Khomeinist Republic, which is different from Iranian national anthem pre-1979. /1

Some Iranian fans at #Qatar stadium for #EnglandVIran booed the national anthem of post-1979 Khomeinist #Iran, and took to social media to explain difference btwn the Khomeinist anthem and national anthem pre-1979. /2

Iranian woman at #Qatar stadium for #EnglandVIran unfurled a lion and sun flag, #Iran's 🇮🇷 before the 1979 Khomeinist Republic. She was cheered by the crowd but stopped later by security for politicizing a sporting event. /3
