Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Iran, November 6, 2019—When summoned to the Iranian regime’s Majlis (parliament) on October 24, the mullahs’ Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif defended his report card of obeying the orders of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“I am famous across the globe as an [apologist] in defending the Islamic Republic’s interests. Have you not heard about the title that the U.S. Secretary of State has given me?” he said. He is referring to the term “chief apologist” that received wide-range media coverage.
Recently, President @realDonaldTrump sanctioned Iran’s Supreme Leader, who enriched himself at the expense of the Iranian people. Today, the U.S. designated his chief apologist @JZarif. He’s just as complicit in the regime’s outlaw behavior as the rest of @khamenei_ir’s mafia. pic.twitter.com/XhDdqR6rik— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) July 31, 2019
Zarif has shown through the years that he is following in the footsteps of Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, by constantly repeating a lie in a variety of seemingly convincing methods for the public to finally give in. All values and principles are set aside in this train of thought, and Zarif resorts to such unbelievable lies with the objective of the public actually thinking twice about his remarks.
For example, back in August, while travelling to Sweden, Zarif lost his temper in the face of Iranians and supporters of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) holding rallies protesting his presence in Stockholm.
“These same people who are standing outside this place, ask them to take part in Iranian sessions and see if they come out alive… They can’t even be in Iraq because the Iraqi people will eat them alive,” he said, providing a window into the mentality of the Iranian regime’s so-called top diplomat. If he continued his remarks, Zarif would probably claim the Iraqi people open their houses to Iran’s mullahs any day. Of course, recent protests across Iraq’s Shiite cities have proven that the mullahs’ regime has significantly lost its support in Iraq.

The truth is that when the mullahs’ regime in Iran resorts to such lies and fake news, it is a clear indication that crises are engulfing their apparatus both inside the country and abroad.
For decades, the mullahs have claimed to enjoy vast support among Iraq’s Shiite community. Recent developments and Iraqis in the hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets of Baghdad and cities checkered across southern Iraq have shown there is no truth to the mullahs’ claims. In fact, the Iraqi people are specifically chanting, “Iran, out, out!”
The people of Iraq and Lebanon have shown they care nothing for the Iranian regime and its deceitful lies and are completely determined to cleanse their countries of the mullahs’ meddling.
Thousands of Iraqis specifically stormed the Iranian regime’s embassy in the Shiite holy city of Karbala on Sunday, November 3, torched the building and replaced the mullahs’ flag with the flag of their country, Iraq. This symbolic measure is a sign of Iran’s “strategic depth” in the region crumbling.
Rest assured Zarif will continue his Goebbles-style lies until the very last breath. However, we cannot deny what we are currently witnessing in Iraq and Lebanon. Rest assured all of Zarif’s remarks are based on lies and propaganda, and reality will catch up with the mullahs’ regime in a harsh and drastic nature.
