Since April 30, when German authorities sanctioned the Iran-backed Lebanese Hezbollah, Revolutionary Guards’ (IRGC) commanders started attacking Germany with ironic retorts.
Along with the name of Qassem Soleimani, the former commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, who was killed by the U.S. military drones near Baghdad airport in January 2020, another name is often mentioned, and a veil of ambiguity is woven around him; Abdul Reza Shahlaei.
The Iranian government has a long history of demonizing dissidents, especially activist group the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and parliament-in-waiting the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which are the regime’s biggest threats to continued power.
The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) created fake email accounts for the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) to send out a batch of emails to resistance supporters containing misinformation about the upcoming Free Iran rally, according to the National Council of Resistance (NCRI).

Numerous reports have been published in recent years which indicate that the regime in Iran is developing ever more sophisticated tactics of cyberespionage and cyber terrorism.
Only two months ago global media reported that a U.S. immigration judge had ordered the deportation of a former Nazi camp guard to Germany. Judge Rebecca Holt issued the order of World War II long coming to an end. “After 75 years, this is ridiculous. I cannot believe it,” said the 94-year old criminal Friedrich Karl Berger while being transferred back to Germany. Notably, he had been living in the U.S. since 1959.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard (IRGC), along with the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), poses a threat to Western and regional states. In addition to Lebanon and Iraq, the militias are also active in Germany. Experts even see them as a “risk of terror attacks.”
In H. RES. 374 of the House of Representatives on May 10, 2019, the majority of U.S. lawmakers stated their support for the Iranian people’s “desire for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic of Iran.”
These days, the arms embargo on Iran has become the main topic for issues related to this country. In 2015, the previous administration of the United States led the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to impose an arms embargo on the Iranian regime according to provisions of the nuclear deal with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
