Europe’s support in countering the recently reimposed U.S. sanctions is vital to Iran, but at the same time, the country wants to eliminate its opposition in Europe.

Iran relies on European support to prop up the nuclear deal that was been abandoned by the United States. But in the meantime, representatives of Denmark and France briefed EU members on Iran’s role in foiled terrorist attacks against opposition groups in their countries.

Inside or outside the country, the Iranian people do not wholeheartedly comply with their Sharia-influenced government. They also realize Tehran’s corruption. Iranians love their land but hate its laws. Iranians often engage in displays of defiance to push back against the system and show their desire for change. These acts of civil disobedience include micro-protests, like recent ones surrounding compulsory veiling or sharing critical content on social media.

The situation in Iran is getting worse every day. The economic situation is deteriorating and the domestic unrest is still very much present. The currency – the Rial – is collapsing, and goods are becoming more and more expensive.

The people are making their discontent heard. It is not something that the people are discreet about any more for fear of arrest, imprisonment, torture or even execution. They still risk these things but they know that something has to give. They are bravely paving the way for a new Iran – one that is free, democratic and respectful of human rights. And most importantly, free from clerical rule.

Persian carpets, also known as Iranian carpets, are a heavy textile, made for a wide va-riety of utilitarian and symbolic purpose, produced in Iran (historically known as Per-sia), for home use, local sale, and export. Carpet weaving is an essential part of Persian culture and Iranian art. Within the group of Oriental rugs produced by the countries of the so-called "rug belt", the Persian carpet stands out by the variety and elaborate-ness of its manifold designs. Persian carpets and rugs of various types were woven in parallel by nomadic tribes, in village and town workshops, and by royal court manu-factories alike. As such, they represent different, simultaneous lines of tradition, and reflect the history of Iran and its various peoples.

At the expense of the health of the economy and widespread poverty and hunger, Iran’s Islamic Caliphate managed the miracle of profit without production.

How is this possible, one wonders? Parliament member Mohammad Reza Mansouri recently addressed a topic that has already been acknowledged by a number of other authorities in Iran. “If we did what we did with our economy to the German economy, that economy would also be destroyed,” he said. Even greater than the US imposed sanctions, the thing that has brought the country’s economy to collapse, are the policies of Iran’s Islamic Caliphate, the MP pointed out.

In the Middle East, Iran is a key factor behind the ongoing instability. The war in Afghanistan is essential in the context of rolling back Iranian influence. Tehran supports ideologically diverse parties in Afghanistan increasing its influence and control. Iran has more options to further entrench and export Iran’s Islamist ideology.
