Iranian Interior Minister: Western Intelligence Behind Riots And Unrest

Iran’s interior minister, Sadeq Mahsouli has accused Western intelligence of backing the riots in Iran following the controversial election results.

Mahsouli’s comments were given very little mainstream media coverage, but were picked up by AFP and Reuters.

Mahsouli has claimed that U.S., U.K., and Israeli interests are behind the unrest.

“Britain, America and the Zionist regime (Israel) were behind the recent unrest in Tehran,” the Interior Minister was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars News Agency.

“Many of the rioters were in contact with America, CIA and the MKO and are being fed by their financial resources,” he said.

Of course, the Iranian government has its own axe to grind, but Mahsouli’s statement increases the focus on claims that Western intelligence agencies are stoking civil disobedience in the hope of fomenting regime change in Iran.

You do not have to take the Iranian government’s word as evidence for this.

There is no debate over the fact that a CIA Covert destabilization campaign inside Iran has been ongoing for over two years.

US Military, intelligence, and congressional sources say a secret war is being vamped to bring down the current Iranian leadership. This involves funding anti-government terrorist groups inside Iran, such as Jundullah and the MEK/MKO.

While president Obama has been quick to denounce such suggestions as “patently false”, arch globalist geopolitical manipulators Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski have both hinted that US interests are currently operating to advance their own agendas with regards to Iran and the middle east.
