Inflation in Iran is running between 9.5% and 10.0%. That’s not good. It’s punishing. But, as so often happens in Iran, when something goes wrong it’s never the fault of the Mullahs; it’s always the fault of some foreigners, often those damned Jews or Americans. The Ayatollah Khamenei, Supreme Leader and Iran’s BMW dealer, blames “foreigners and their intelligence services.” I guess we should view these allegations as progress, because Khamenei didn’t, as he often does, blame the Jews.
“The role of foreigners and their intelligence services was obvious in the recent chaos in Iran’s currency market,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with thousands of Intelligence Ministry staff in Tehran.
Explaining the main strategies that the espionage services of the enemies have devised to harm Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to plots to hack and steal the country’s information, change the policies of decision-makers, foment security problems, and disrupt the economy.
The Islamic Republic is facing a complicated war waged by a strong alliance of enemies that employ their espionage services as the pivot of doing harm to Iran in this encounter, the Leader stated.
The espionage services of the enemies play a pivotal role in their confrontation with Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
