“This regime is not loyal to any of its religious principles…”
Actually, the Islamic Republic of Iran is scrupulously faithful to its religious principles. But no one in the entire world wants to face the implications of that.
“Khamenei’s niece slams Iran’s ‘child-killing regime’ in video,” Times of Israel, November 27, 2022:
The niece of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described authorities led by her uncle as a “murderous and child-killing regime,” in an online video uploaded by her brother on Saturday after her apparent arrest on unclear charges.
Farideh Moradkhani comes from a branch of the family that has a record of opposition to Iran’s clerical leadership and has herself been jailed previously in the country.
Her brother Mahmoud Moradkhani wrote on Twitter that she was arrested on Wednesday after going to the office of the prosecutor following a summons.
Then on Saturday, her brother posted a video on YouTube, with the link shared on Twitter, in which she condemned the “clear and obvious oppression” Iranians have been subjected to, and criticized the international community’s inaction.
“Free people, be with us! Tell your governments to stop supporting this murderous and child-killing regime,” she said.
“This regime is not loyal to any of its religious principles and does not know any law or rule except force and maintaining its power in any way possible.”
It was not clear when the video had been recorded.
She complained that the sanctions imposed against the regime over its crackdown were “laughable” and said Iranians had been left “alone” in their fight for freedom.
Moradkhani is the daughter of Khamenei’s sister Badri, who fell out with her family in the 1980s and fled to Iraq at the peak of the war with Iran’s neighbor. She joined her husband, the dissident cleric Ali Tehrani….
At least 416 people including 51 children have been killed in the crackdown, according to Norway-based Iran Human Rights (IHR).
