In a recent speech to officials, Rahimpour Azghadi, a veteran member of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution said: “A revolution cannot be preserved like this. You cannot keep the people [on the regime’s side] like this. If you cut your ties with the people, especially [those in] the middle to lower class and, specifically, the impoverished, or if you don’t understand them and they don’t understand you, you should be afraid of yourselves and not the US.”
The Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution is the top body for making policies and decisions in connection with cultural, educational, and research activities that are within the framework of the Iranian Regime’s general policies. The Council’s decisions can only be overruled by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.
Azghadi criticised the Iranian government for their running of the country, complained that they only ever made empty promises, and even accused them of opposing the Regime’s goals.
He said: “They only give promises and create false hope and when they see that the conditions are hard, they give up and turn into the opposition.”
Of course, the truth is that whatever the differences between the factions in Iran, there are no moderates and no real opposition to Khamenei’s orders. The only real, legitimate opposition to the regime’s disastrous policies is the Iranian Resistance, led by the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK).
