People’s increased hatred sends the chill and is reflected in the hierarchy!
- The state-run Asr-e Iran said on July 6 that mullah Naghavian said: “At times, when I go to various agencies or I go to the airport and I see how extensive the level of disobedience and preferential treatment is, or when I see at the airport that the departure boards display multi-hour delays of various flights and on the same boards it is written ‘Please respect the veiling laws [i.e., Women should cover their hair] at a time when people are so stressed out, I hate this see this mal-veiling slogan let alone the women.”
-Tabnak, the website of Mohsen Rezaii, First Secretary of the regime’s Expediency Council also wrote: Another incompetence of the country’s smaller cultural systems has rendered the behavior of the disciplinary forces and the police ,in the eyes of the people, as distressing…and this will eventually weaken the police forces who are the enforcers of our laws.”
Class gaps in Iranunder the rulership of the mullahs
Washington Post wrote, the picture that the clerical regime of Iran painted at the beginning of the revolution in 1979, promised to the poor that there will be equality throughout the society by fair distribution of oil cash. Three decades later, however, only do a tiny number of people enjoy the promised welfare and the rest of Iranians struggle to survive, despite billions of dollars of oil revenues, Washington post reported on August 7.
The article adds, the problem is that the chasm between classes is humongous. “Many here say the gap between rich and poor has never seemed wider.” Public wrath against inequality, on the other hand, is taking strong political dimensions.
“Iran’s new wealthy class has succeeded in tapping the opportunities provided by a vast domestic market, sometimes aided by corruption and erratic government.” Among them are the children of those affiliated with Iran’s rulers.
“The oil windfall — nearly $500 billion over the past five years — has also played a central role in establishing this small group that is visibly enjoying its profits.”Washington Post quoted a former economic advisor of Ahmadinejad’s as saying, two and a half million children have to work instead of attending schools and this is because of financial difficulties. Kidney sales have increased so much so that the price of a kidney has plunged from $10,000 to only $2,000!
Foodstuff price climb
