The recent unrest in Iran has its roots in foreign terrorist organizations’ attempt to provoke people to pursue their own agenda, which is overthrowing the political establishment, a British sociologist believes.
David Miller told IRNA on Monday that some foreign elements who pursue their own geopolitical agendas fanned the flame of the recent protests in Iran to pursue a regime change policy.
“The first key thing is that the premise for the protests such as they are, has been a false story about the cause of death of a young Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini,” he said, adding, “It was said by certain sources that she was killed or murdered by the police, which isn’t the cause for death.”
As to the scenario made by foreign forces to wreak havoc in Iran, Miller noted that it was invented by sources who had a reason to invent such things, which is that they are connected to entities with specific geopolitical interests, especially the US, the Zionists, and the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MKO).
According to the expert, the reason that sparked the situation was a “deception,” which was invented because of geopolitical objectives.
You can see that some of the people are agents of foreign powers and agencies like the foundation of George Soros, which is dedicated to regime change in Iran, he noted.
The British thinker also stipulated, “If these were women’s rights demonstrations simply over the question of the compulsory hijab or similar issues; then, we would not have been seeing immediate attacks, including killings of police officers and Basiji, we would not have seen the systematic attempt to target ambulances, which of course are not for woman’s rights in Iran.”
He also referred to “the attacks on IRGC personnel,” adding, “That is not the act of a woman’s rights demonstration, that is the act of a foreign terrorist organization.”
“This is a clear sign, this is not a kind of internal opposition,” he said, arguing that “the internal opposition is not allowed to carry gun” and “engage in armed attacks on state personnel.”
Comparing the incident in Iran with the case of Chris Caba, 24-year-old, who was shot dead by armed police in Streatham Hill, the UK, Miller said that the African-British citizen’s death sparked protests, but mainstream media tried to introduce the protests as participation in mourning for Queen Elizabeth, while they were demanding justice for the murder case.
“There is a desperate need for Russia, for China, for Iran, and other countries to develop their own social media infrastructure,” he said, arguing that the existing social media platforms are instruments for Western appearance.
