Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Iran: May 15, 2019 – Elias Hazrati, a member of the Iranian regime’s Majlis (parliament), took to the podium in an open session of the parliament on Tuesday to discuss the current crisis that has engulfed the entire regime.
“The system is facing the toughest sanctions’ regime and the most condense economic blockade the country has faced during the past decade,” Hazrati said.
Under the slogan of the “people losing their trust” and “hopeless people”, Hazrati warned regime officials that the status quo will lead to a nationwide uprising.
“We are in the middle of a horrific psychological war. The war has begun. The aim is to destroy the people’s trust in the state,” the Majlis member warned. He said the target of this “psychological war” is creating a wedge between the people and the system.
In another segment of his comments, Hazrati revealed his fears of the increase of social interests and attraction toward the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) as the opposite to the social hatred and disgust of the people toward the regime.
“The enemy is using all its assets to discredit the state. With fake news and exaggeration tactics, 1,200 PMOI/MEK members are sitting and planning against [paramilitary] Hezbollah [militants], against both the reformists and principalists, the defenders of the state and the extremists and the fanatics. And inside the system, we are promoting this great war without doing anything to counter it,” Hazrati added.
He warned different factions of the regime saying that they don’t have a correct perception of the situation.
“You will realize the gravity of the situation when the people are smashed under the wheels of the problems,” he said, admitting the explosive statues of the society and the regime’s inability to tackle that.
“We don’t have any understanding of the fact that people are being smashed under the wheels of high costs of living, inflation, unemployment, and there is chaos overwhelming the Bazaar and the economy, while we are engaged in our own infightings and pay no attention to the outside reality.”
