Iran's Former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Arrested For Inciting Unrest: Report

The London-based Arabic daily newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reports this morning that former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been arrested by security forces for allegedly inciting unrest against the government, according to "reliable sources in Tehran."

The newspaper describes the former president's arrest in the southwest city of Shiraz as coming after a series of provocative statements given in support of anti-government protests that have gripped the country for more than a week, and that his detention was granted approval by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Starting early in the protests, Ahmadinejad, who led the nation from 2005 to 2013 and has long been considered a hardliner, made public statements denouncing the Rouhani government as well as the clerical establishment as being detached from the daily reality of ordinary Iranians.

Starting in November 2017 Ahmadinejad began making what was widely viewed as a surprise political comeback while running a populist message, focusing on the fight against corruption as his main emphasis and attacking the rich and corrupt, along with severe criticisms against the government for squandering public funding intended for the people's welfare. He's also reported to have broadly utilized social media for aggressive rhetoric targeting the judiciary and challenging Iran's supreme leader.

Al Quds Al Arabi cites Ahmadinejad's visit to the western city of Bushehr on December 28 as raising concern among authorities. That particular Thursday is when large-scale protests were first reported, primarily starting in Mashhad, Iran’s second largest city. He is reported to have said, “Some of the current leaders live detached from the problems and concerns of the people, and do not know anything about the reality of society.” He also allegedly charged Tehran with “mismanagement” and directed attacks against President Hassan Rouhani, saying his regime “believes that they own the land and that the people are an ignorant society.”

Previously this week there were rumors that his arrest was coming amidst an ongoing investigation, as multiple regional and international reports cited a commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as indicating that "a former leader of the country" had provoked people to protest. Al Quds Al Arabi is currently describing Ahmadinejad's detention as a "house arrest".

On Friday at an emergency session of the UN called by the United States, Iran's ambassador told the meeting that his government has "hard evidence" that recent protests in Iran were "very clearly directed from abroad." Iran has primarily blamed external enemies for seeking to exploit major internal economic difficulties the country is currently experiencing. 

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley characterized the week long unrest in Iran as a "spontaneous expression of fundamental human rights," claiming the protests were simultaneously playing out in "over 78 locations" - though according to many reports anti-regime protests have largely died down while giving way to possibly larger pro-government rallies

It is possible that this latest news of Ahmadinejad's arrest on charges of incitement, however, could renew mass anti-government protests. 

This is a developing story...

well that is true.. take anyone's politics that are implemented.. bound to be tyranny to somebody

there is what I call escapist thinking.. I'm not criticizing those who constructively disagree, even the really far-out-there free education types like Bernie.. but then there are those who are marginalized by just ridiculous ass beliefs

Iran has huge inflation problems and unemployment issues.. and the supreme burrito forgot all about the people and got all worldly.. so now he has to just:

Lock them up! 

Lock them up!

Lock them up!

Yeah Australian wines be good Shiraz..

In America we like your red wines

Also your lamb the other chicken

Years ago the English newspaper, the telegraph, stated that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a Jew.

This lends some weight to that report.…

"Experts last night suggested Mr Ahmadinejad's track record for hate-filled attacks on Jews could be an overcompensation to hide his past." Sounds like Hitler:

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

Slack Jack you beat me to it. Re.  Ahmadinejad was born a Jew. He goes to vote and waves to the crowd, holding up his internal passport. Reporters take pictures and on closer inspection ... It shows he was born a Jew. Intetesting but maybe so what? He seemed to me to be a pretty effective President of Iran. Domesticly he was an Iranian Bernie Sanders but with more integrity. Like he didn't get a house on Lake Champlain handed to him. The current Prez is a trickle-down kind of guy. Maybe the crypto sold out the country? Will have to wait and see. 

This is hoot worth checking out. 

Ahmadinejad, the "birthright" trip.

 Ahmadinejad is someone who has real integrity. When he was president he refused to be paid more than his former salary and always tried to save money for his country every which way he could. That he goes against corruption in his country is all to his credit. That Iranian oligarchs are afraid of him is pretty likely. Otherwise they wouldn't call him populist.

 Well if your research is done through Americano or Isreali outlets I wouldn't be surprised to read he even was the head of a concentration camp. 

His often quoted sentence about the destruction of Isreal is one such example. 

Note executions are often requested by religious leaders. So whatever statistics you come up with need to be extremely well documented to demonstrate he was the decision taker etc. 

Besides I haven't heard about the number of executions in the land of the phat. Mind refreshing us about this? When you're through let us know about the prisons there as well. Should be interesting to compare.

Political executions, really?  Did some Zionists tell you that?  Please list for us the names of those Ahmadinejad had executed for political reasons.

Vast majority of executions in Iran are for drug crimes.

And Shiraz was first the name of a Persian wine that became famous during the 9th Century.  The Australian wine comes from an unrelated French grape, which copied the name of the Persian wine but is genetically distinct.

Maybe; I don't approve but if you look into it, drugs were/are a major problem in Iran, like in the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, etc., which also kill drug dealers (with a bit less due process in the Philippines).  Lots more people being killed for drugs in Mexico.  US alphabet agencies are the world's foremost drug dealers.

Americans murder millions of babies/fetuses because they feel like it, and murder millions of foreigners and destroy countries based on lies.  Now that's truly barbaric.  Indeed under the Nuremburg principles, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama all deserve to be hung by the neck until dead.  No doubt Trump will shortly join that list.

Look at your own dirty laundry.  Nobody, and I mean nobody, gurgling on about "Iranian protests" gives a shit about Iranians.  They just don't like that the Iranian rulers are a thorn in the side of the Bolshevik World Order.  And for that I laud the Iranian regime.  You think Libyans and Syrians, the "benefactors" of "Western" "love", have it better than Iranians?  And who is helping them deal with their "love-imposed" problems?

Youth unemployment USA…

Take a look at that cocksucker and realize what MAGA means.  

and then we have Europe…

The funny thing is that most of the people who post dumb shit about the USA don't know much about it or aren't from here.

Oh the latest?…

Black unemployment falls to record lows!

The only people who couldn't find jobs were racists with tattoos on their faces doing Hitler dances at their job interview blaming the joos for their brain damaged thoughts.

The Iranians count their unemployed, I'd suggest you at least try to find the REAL stats.

But I suppose you also believe unemployment in the USA is 4% instead of the 23+ % it actually is ?

Or maybe those 100 million not working are just living of bitcoin speculation.


And the Iranians have a vast under 30 demographic, and the REAL figures are still lower.

Holohoax Alert

by Alfred Schaefer

MONIKA SCHAEFER was arrested on January 3 2018 in the very heart of “Holocaust country” while attending, as an observer, the bizarre inquisition hearings against the courageous Sylvia Stolz. This “trial” was for illegal words that Sylvia Stolz had spoken at the “Anti Censorship Coalition” (AZK) in Switzerland in 2012. The twisting nonsensical accusations of the inquisition was beyond bizarre. What the snake that calls itself the “State Prosecutor” did, will be something that will amuse future generations when studying the “witch” trials of 2018.

Forty-five minutes into the inquisition the “State Prosecutor” snake called for a surprise break, which was then used to arrest my courageous sister Monika. The only thing Monika did was watch quietly as the inquisition was dealing with Sylvia Stolz. These people have us under close observation and figured it was a good opportunity to demonstrate their “power” and intimidate us.

Another snake masquerading as a “State Prosecutor” accompanied by three heavily armed thugs handcuffed Monika and dragged her away. When my sister protested that she is a free person from Canada and had done nothing wrong, the “State Prosecutor” snake told her, “if you wanted to stay free you should have stayed in Canada”. (Welcome to Holocaust country.)

Now they have moved Monika Schaefer to the high security prison in Munich and will keep her there indefinitely. Monika is accused of making an apology to her own dear mother. The title of the video was “Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the Holocaust.

What has angered the Jews is the fact that this one little video has undone hundreds of millions of dollars worth of their psychological warfare that most of us had become victims of. They thought that their ridiculous “Holocaust” program was now firmly wired into our brains, and then, along comes Monika and blows it out of the water with a simple apology to her Mom. That really surprised them.

This is happening at the same time that our borders are open and millions of young men from Africa and Asia are flooding into our European countries with a free pass to do whatever they want. This is something that the Jews had planned for the European countries for a very long time. In the end our cities are supposed to turn into Lagos- or Calcutta-type slums that can no longer resist Jewish hegemony.

The sick perverted criminals that ordered Monika arrested are people that put a pancake on their head and nibble the foreskins off of little eight-day-old baby boys thinking that this odd behavior somehow gives them the privilege to rule the planet. These perverts are the same ones that tried to silence me a long time ago already, but have failed. Here they are: B’nai Brith Canada.

To put Monika Schaefer in prison because she apologized to her Mom is making many people very angry and not helping people “like” the Jews very much. In fact, this may give Jews who want to come clean and join humanity, the opportunity to help us get Monika out of prison. So, if you are a Jew, we have many JEWdicial costs to cover, and helping Monika out of prison can be used as proof that you are a “good” Jew. Just contact me and we can work together.
