- On the recent arrest of university professor Ramin Jahanbegloo, the intelligence minister noted that Jahanbegloo was arrested on suspicion of assisting the U.S. in its efforts to provoke a velvet revolution in Iran.
The entire news story at Mehr News has many other interesting points which should not be ignored such as increasing number of weapons being smuggled into Iran which is a serious threat to the stability of the Islamic regime or the intelligence minister of the regime mentions the growing contacts between Iranian NGOs and American institutions as a direct threat to the security of the regime
- “They take various NGO members abroad to educate them. Recently, some people have been officially invited to be trained in the U.S. under the pretext of attending scientific seminars or for business or employment. The initial financial assistance given to them is not enough to arouse the suspicion that they have been invited to be trained as spies.”
This is another propaganda arrest to show muscles to the opposition but honestly I do wish these laughable charges were real.
