An exhibition has been held in Paris to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran. During the course of one single summer, 30,000 political prisoners, most of whom were members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK), were executed in what has been described as one of the most horrific crimes against humanity. What makes the tragedy even more poignant is the fact that the officials that played a role in this terrible crime have still not be held accountable. In fact, the officials have risen through the ranks to occupy higher roles in the Iranian regime. Alireza Avaie was part of the so-called “death committee” that decided the fate of many political prisoners. Now he serves as the Iranian justice minister.

According to a recent announcement, Iran plans to develop its own national cryptocurrency. This move is likely an attempt to circumvent the reimposed sanctions suspended by the U.S. as part of the Iran nuclear deal.

It is believed that Tehran’s cryptocurrency plan is being aided by Russia as part of a collaborative attempt to build a new system for global financial transactions to help their respective banks to become “sanctions resistant.”

Supreme leader of the Iranian regime, Ali Khamenei, broke his silence on the ongoing Iranian uprising on Monday, but rather than acknowledge that the decisions of his politicians caused the current crisis, he attempted to shift the blame to Iran’s “enemies” and called the people saying that Iran was at a deadlock “traitors”.

In May, Donald Trump pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and promised to reinstitute sanctions on the country. Ever since that day, Iran has struggled to find a way out of this to avoid the sanctions that would severely affect their economy, but they have failed to do so.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently tweeted: “THERE WILL BE NO WAR, NOR WILL WE NEGOTIATE WITH THE US.”

Those unfamiliar with the tactics of the Iranian Regime may be breathing a sigh of relief at the idea that there will be no war, but there was never any real danger of a traditional military conflict between the Gulf State and the country that it refers to as the “Great Satan”.
