The Iranian Regime’s Successful Use ‘Divide and Conquer’ Against Its People

By INU Staff

INU - In Mashhad, in 1992, religious authorities in charge of the shrine of the 8th Imam Reza decided they wanted to enlarge their compound. The destruction of an adjacent residential area of dilapidated homes and shacks called Mahalle Tollab was necessary, which resulted in a riot. This surprised authorities, who realized that they must weaken the protesters’ solidarity. They created factions by announcing, “The people whose houses were seized and destroyed demand to be distinguished from provocateurs and saboteurs.” The “provocateurs and saboteurs” were then identified and hanged, which acted as a message to everyone else. In less than two weeks, the protests dwindled away.

INU - As New Year’s Day dawned, so did the fifth day of protests in Iran. While President Rouhani acknowledged the importance of attention to economic and political realities and the people’s right to protest, he seemed to ignore reality when he proclaimed, “There is a minority, a tiny group, who would come in and do something: to chant slogans against the law and the will of the people, to insult the sanctities and values of the revolution, and to destroy public property. Our country will round them up good.”
