In scenes reminiscent of Syria 2011, armed groups in Iran have used mostly peaceful protests to call for an armed struggle against the Iranian government.
In Syria in 2011, peaceful protesters calling for economic and political reforms had their peaceful protests hijacked by armed Muslim Brotherhood fanatics who fired upon security forces, allowing for the protests to descend into a civil war.
The same is now occurring in Iran with protesters who originally called for economic reforms days ago, being hijacked by violent people who are attacking Iranian security forces and sacking government buildings throughout the country.
The violence has been agitated by imperialist shrills who are spreading fake news that the protests are about regime-change in Iran, as reported in detail by FRN earlier today. The details of a color revolution descending can also be read here.
The terrorist group Ansar al-Furaq has called for an armed uprising and struggle against the government. They also claimed yesterday to have blown up an oil pipeline in Iran’s southern Khuzestan province where Iran’s Arab minority are mostly concentrated.
Meanwhile, Al-Sura News has also reported that the separatist Kurdish Free Life Party (PJAK) has also called for an armed struggle.
With a radical Islamist group and separatist Kurdish group calling for armed struggle, this truly bares resemblance to what occurred in Syria in 2011.
