“The rial has lost more than a half of its value against the dollar in just four months, having fallen to the 50,000-mark for the first time in March. Iranians have been trying to buy more US currency on the black market for fear the economy can collapse when the US sanctions return.

In an attempt to curb currency speculation which has led to the rial collapse, the Iranian central bank unified the official and unregulated exchange rates. However, there have been reports that black market vendors are inflating the costs of goods imported in US dollars.

The locals often seek to buy the US currency as they think it is a safe way to store their savings, or as an investment if the rial continues to drop. While the official rate is about 44,050 rials, it is very hard to buy a buck at that rate in Iran.”

【PressTV】 iranian-diaspora.tumblr.com/post/176304189476

PressTV-To Trump: Hereby, I respond to you as a soldier:

Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani has sharply reacted to the recent “cabaret owner-style” military threat by US President Donald Trump against the Islamic Republic, saying he takes the position to respond “as a soldier” since it is beneath the dignity of Iran’s president to do so.

Addressing Trump, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said, “You threaten us with an action that is ‘unprecedented’ in the world. This is cabaret-style rhetoric. Only a cabaret owner talks to the world this way.”

He was reacting to Trump’s all-caps tweet addressed to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in which he threatened the Islamic Republic with actions “the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”

The tweet came after President Rouhani warned the US against its hostile approach against Iran, saying America should know that peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace while war with the country will be the mother of all wars.

PressTV-President Rouhani on war and peace with Iran

President Rouhani says the US should know peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace and war with the country will be the mother of all wars.

“It is beneath the dignity of our president to respond to you. I, as a soldier, respond to you,” Soleimani further said.

You already did all you could!

The senior general further reminded the United States of its failures in its invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

“What was it that you could do over the past 20 years but you didn’t? You came to Afghanistan with scores of tanks and personnel carriers and hundreds of advanced helicopters and committed crimes there. What the hell could you do between 2001 and 2018 with 110,000 troops? You are today begging Taliban for talks,” Major General Soleimani said.

The Iranian commander added, “Afghanistan was a poor country, what the hell could you do in this country that you are currently threatening us?”

“You arrogantly attacked Iraq with 160,000 troops and multiple times [military equipment] compared to what you used in Afghanistan, but what happened? Ask your then commander who was the person that he sent to me and asked ‘Is is possible for you to give us time [and] use your influence so that our soldiers would not be attacked by the Iraqi fighters in these few months  until we exit this country?’ Have you forgotten that you provided adult diapers for your soldiers in tanks? Despite that you are currently threatening the great country of Iran? With what background do you threaten [us]?”

“We are near you, where you can’t even imagine. We are the nation of martyrdom, we are the nation of Imam Hossein, you better ask. Come; we are ready. We are the man of this arena. You know that this war would mean annihilation of all your means. You may begin the war, but it is us who will end it,” he said.

In Yemen, Soleimani said, the US-backed coalition of Saudi Arabia and its allies has been incapable of making any gains against the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is both running state affairs and defending the nation against the Riyadh-led aggression.

“A mere organization is standing against you in Yemen, but it has emerged victorious in the face of the most advanced of your military equipment. What have you achieved over the past four years? You stripped the Red Sea – which used to be a safe sea – of security. You brought under fire Saudi Arabia and [its capital] Riyadh – which had not seen a single rocket fired at them for 100 years.”

The senior general further warned Trump against insulting the Iranian nation and president.

“Trump! You must not threaten our nation and must not insult our president… You must know what you are talking about; ask your predecessors and take advantage of their experiences,” General Soleimani emphasized.

PressTV-‘Crushing response awaiting US anti-Iran threats’

A senior Iranian military commander says the country’s Armed Forces are highly prepared to give a crushing response to any threat.

The senior military official also censured the US for supporting the most hated anti-Iran terror group, called the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), saying Washington failed to achieve anything by doing so.

The commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force said, “America had some grandeur in the past [and] when its fleet moved out, a nation fell apart. Have you now become attached to the Monafeqeen, who have been thrown in the trash bin of Iran’s history? You have become attached to a vagrant woman, and show her in all [your news] networks; is your hope pinned on this? Is this all your power? You are aware of our power in the region and capability for [launching] asymmetrical war?”

  • vusayf asked: How different is Dari as a dialect from Farsi, if at all? Trying to learn, a wonderful Afghani community is a part of my new home

  • iranian-diaspora answered: Dari is the more ancient form of Farsi that was spoken centuries ago. Filler words for Farsi in Iran are French and filler words for Farsi in Afghanistan are Russian. There are differences but they’re mutually understandable

morality police in Iran

from iranian-diaspora.tumblr.com (Jul. 14 2018):

… she [Masih Alinejad] has posted multiple videos of “morality police harassing women in Iran” for their attire. She has spread the following video (i’m not tech savvy and idk how to embed videos from twitter so here’s a GIF):

tumblr_inline_pbvn2zIqwR1qjauzl_400

She has tweeted this video saying that the two women on the right are members of Iran’s morality police and were harassing the woman on the left for not dressing properly, so she removed her hijab in response. The women on the right are not members of Iran’s morality police and considering Alinejad has lived in Iran, she should know what members of the morality police look like:

tumblr_inline_pbvne4TcRy1qjauzl_400

Women in the morality police wear dark green veils under their chadors and also wear a badge signifying their status. While I do not agree with policing women for how they dress and do not support the compulsory hijab law, I also don’t like fake, self-proclaimed activists such as Alinejad who are funded by western media outlets, which are controlled by pro-war politicians, who use and spread these lies to justify war/regime change in Iran.

Well, what’s the crucial fact about Iran, which we should begin with, is that for the past 60 years, not a day has passed in which the U.S. has not been torturing Iranians. That’s 60 years, right now. It began with a military coup, which overthrew the parliamentary regime in 1953, installed the Shah, a brutal dictator. Amnesty International described him as one of the worst, most extreme torturers in the world, year after year.

When he was overthrown in 1979, the U.S. almost immediately turned to supporting Saddam Hussein in an assault against Iran, which killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians, used extensive use of chemical weapons. Of course, at the same time, Saddam attacked his Kurdish population with horrible chemical weapons attacks. The U.S. supported all of that. The Reagan administration even tried to—succeeded in preventing a censure of Iraq. The United States essentially won the war against Iran by its support for Iraq. It immediately—Saddam Hussein was a favorite of the Reagan and first Bush administration, to such an extent that George H.W. Bush, the first Bush, right after the war, in 1989, invited Iraqi nuclear engineers to the United States for advanced training in nuclear weapons production. That’s the country that had devastated Iran, horrifying attack and war. Right after that, Iran was subjected to harsh sanctions. And it continues right until this moment.

So we now have a 60-year record of torturing Iranians. We don’t pay attention to it, but you can be sure that they do, with good reason. That’s point number one.

Iran: protests in Khoramshahr

from iranian-diaspora.tumblr.com (Jul. 14 2018):

tumblr_pbvr4fsFP61s3rm2x_smart1

On June 20th 2018, protests in Khoramshahr due to water shortages turned violent as Iran’s police forces shot at two ~protesters~.

I’ve seen both Shahi and MEK propagandist outlets on social media decontextualizing this, saying that Iran’s police forces shot at the crowd and killed two protestors.

If you look closely, you can see the two “protestors” are armed. It’s extremely difficult for civilians in Iran to attain guns, which is why it’s important to be critical of these reportings. The man shooting on the bike at the police gets shot, and his partner, instead of helping him, abandons him and takes the gun.

tumblr_inline_pbx4axTXKG1qjauzl_400.png

The people were armed (which is highly suspicious) and got shot at after shooting at the police. It’s safe to say the police shooting was provoked by terrorists. It’s likely that these ~protestors~ are affiliated with the MEK or considering this is in Khoramshahr, they could also be Arab separatists. Arab separatists have very little support, and this is not the majority belief of Iran’s Arab population.

Terrorists hijacking protests born from legitimate grievances and frustrations in order to instigate a regime change fueled by corrupt self-interests isn’t exactly an unfamiliar ploy (*cough* SYRIA..HELLO.. *cough). Pro-regime change puppets who are funded by war-mongering politicians who seek to imperialize the region (Masih Alinejad, shahi & MEK propagandists) circulating such propaganda isn’t unfamiliar either.

I’ve seen a lot of people on social media spreading these lies unknowingly, which just goes to show that they didn’t pay attention to what happened with Syria and Iraq because the exact same ploy is being used with Iran.

Regime change has very little support in Iran, even amongst the people protesting due to the crumbling economy because of ^^^this^^^ exact reason. What would be best for Iran right now would be to relieve the sanctions, but those were purposely re-imposed to instigate these protests, so they can again be hijacked by terrorists who will instigate a civil war.

  • catchymemes: Morality Police in Iran tells a woman she’s not wearing hijab correctly. So the woman takes her hijab off completely.

  • emvampyre: Hope she’s still alive.

  • iranian-diaspora: These women are not morality police, they are regular civilians. This lie was spread by Masih Alinejad, who receives funding from Western media outlets which are controlled by anti-Iran politicians who advocate for war with and regime change in Iran.

  • iranian-diaspora: Here is another propagandist lie spread by Masih Alinejad. Again, she falsely labels the three women on the right as morality police, despite being fully aware of what morality police look like. These women are just regular civilians. Again, I do not agree with policing women for how they dress, and Iranian women should be free to dress how they want, but these lies are peak western-feminism, which appropriates misogyny in Iran to justify regime change wars for installing favorable puppet dictators, and imperialism.
