Jason Rezaian is, by his own admission, one of the only “foreign” journalists currently permitted to work in Iran. As we all know since the 2009 elections, the Iranian regime has been loath to allow any foreign journalists access to the country, however Mr. Rezaian has had no problem in this matter.
Indeed Mr. Rezaian has spent a considerable amount of time in Iran, and seemingly continues to enjoy a close relationship with the state; as he concedes in this commentary he wrote for the New York Times: “Last night I rode with some of them in a back of a truck plastered with the incumbent’s photos. These were members of the Bassij, the youth militia — young men in their 20s who are the new generation of the Islamic revolution.”
Recently in Washington, DC a number of former high ranked officials and public figures from both parties, made calls for the removal of the main Iranian oppositions group, the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq Organisation of Iran (MEK) from the State Department's Foreign Terrorist Organizations list. At the same time some discussions began to appear in online publications and blogs with arguments such as the MEK being a cult or being unpopular.
Stop Fundamentalism – According to sources, Iranian Revolutionary Guards has tested a new noise creation system, Saturday.
This new system can transmit with 1 Gigahertz of power.
The device is Russian made and it is intended to be used in electronic warfare to distort radar receptions.
Iranian regime is trying to prevent international and satellite programming to reach Iranians.
While having a satellite television is illegal in Iran, many Iranians prefer to watch foreign media rather than Iranian produced television programs.
The osolators embedded in this system will create noise with enough power to distort most satellite programming.
The system transmits at such power that it is feared to be hazardous to human health.
