"A favor to Khamenei". “The killing of general Qassem Soleimani ordered by the president, Trump – says the expert – it was a huge favor to the supreme Guide Ali Khamenei because it shifted the attention from the violent repression of peaceful demonstrations of November to the tensions in the Middle East”. According to Amiry-Moghaddam, until Friday, the iranian authorities were forced to confront the increasing criticism of public opinion, both domestic and international: “The families of the 1,500 dead and tens of thousands arrested were making their voices heard, to demand justice and more transparency”. According to the expert, the assassination of general Soleimani, “on which the regime invested years to create the myth, the icon of the national hero, has helped to strengthen the propaganda of Iran as a victim of the aggression of enemy aliens.”
The great expenditure for military operations. In this framework, complaint Amiry-Moghaddam, the restrictions on human rights will continue to be the order of the day. The government also invests a large portion of the public funds in military operations abroad, “and not for the well-being of its citizens. The events of November – reminds us of the president of the Institute, began to denounce the unemployment growth in the last two years, the low wages, or those not paid for months to civil servants. But for the military operations – which in Iran we call ‘adventures’ – the funds are: after the death of Soleimani, the parliament has announced an allocation equivalent to eur 200 million for the armed Forces”.
"zero Tolerance for dissent". Therefore “it is not strange that you do not attend marches pacifist organized“, says Amiry-Moghaddam. “Tolerance of dissent is now equal to zero. People remember very well that in the aftermath of the war against Iraq in the Eighties, or in 2009, when thousands said enough to the interventions abroad, many ended up in prison with the accusation of collaborationism. I appeal to the european Union and to the media to give attention to the violations suffered by the iranians, so that international pressure could impose a democratic change”.
