Alireza Jafarzadeh: “There were 10 instances of terrorist operations in 2018 in both Europe and the United States… there has been a sharp surge compared to earlier years”
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “There are five major decision-makers in Iran, but ultimately everything boils down to the Supreme Leader, Khamenei.”
“The lead agency that has been involved in terrorism in Western countries is the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS)”
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “Embassies provide cover to the MOIS to allow them to exploit diplomatic immunity & diplomatic pouches in order to carry out terrorist attacks. When terrorists are caught, they’re job is to explain it away and get their terrorists back to Tehran.”

Jafarzadeh: “In 2016 the deputy for international affairs in the MOIS became the regime’s ambassador to Albania. In 2017, the former station chief in Austria moved to Albania to execute terrorist attacks against the Iranian resistance.”

Jafarzadeh: “100,000 people were at the Paris event that the regime wanted to bomb, including Americans and foreign dignitaries.”

Jafarzadeh: "Five diplomats have been implicated in terrorist attacks in Europe in the past year. Zarif should have been arrested once he arrived in NYC because he has been involved in terrorist activity for years. He is a terrorist &deserves to be arrested.”

Jafarzadeh: “Ali Akbar Velayati was the foreign minister for sixteen years, he is now wanted for his involvement in providing cover for terrorist attacks and assassinations in Argentina and Europe.”

Amb. Adam Ereli, frmr State Dept. Spokesperson, and @NCRIUS Dep Dir. discus the new book "Iran's Emissaries of Terror". Jafarzadeh on why Tehran is targeting the NCRI and MEK on Western soil at these sensitive times for the regime.

Amb. Ereli: “The poster child for the regime’s ‘moderates’ is Javad Zarif. This report shows #Zarif’s true colors. The fact of the matter is that he &MOIS are in bed together. The embassies are the tip of the spear for gov-sanctioned assassination ops throughout the world”
Jafarzadeh: “These attacks are acts of desperation by the regime which needs Europe on its side when it comes to sanctions and the JCPOA. Yet, Europe was the scene of most of these terrorist ops. More important 2 them than sanctions relief is their survival.”
#Iran #BlacklistMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “Javad Zarif puts on a smiley face but his hands are bloody. His job at the United Nations was to explain away the massacre of political prisoners. His job was to cover up the murders of the Iranian regime.”
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “It is important to designate the MOIS as an FTO because it bars US persons from providing any sort of support to it. The MOIS has plenty of operatives here in the US who operate under many different covers."
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “Designating the MOIS sends a very strong message to the Iranian regime: if you sponsor terrorism, we are going to treat you like terrorists.”
“This regime is not ten feet tall. This is a regime that is in deep trouble, especially inside of Iran."
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Amb Ereli: “Before the NCRI moved to Albania, there were two Iranian diplomats there. After Camp Ashraf moved there, the embassy grew tenfold. What explains this? The regime’s need to flood the zone with assassins and spies to target the MEK.”
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “What we are calling for is closing the Iranian regime’s embassies. These diplomatic relations have allowed the regime to plot terrorist attacks and assassinations in the West.”
#Iran #BlackListMOIS
Jafarzadeh: “No country should be allowed to buy Iranian oil, but the real solution for the Iranian regime is not just sanctions. The real cure is regime change by the people of Iran.”
