Germany's internal security service has exposed Iran's fundamentalist regime of spying on Iran's largest democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK), and the main opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Germany’s domestic intelligence service, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, or ‘BfV’), said in its annual report, dated July 2015, that the PMOI (MEK) and NCRI are the primary targets of spying activity by Iran’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).
The Economist reports that when citizens in Arab countries in the Persian Gulf woke up to a Saudi military operation in Yemen on Thursday, “many had the same thought: it’s about time.”

Investigations into the 1994 AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which killed 85 people and injured hundreds, have been marred with controversy with allegations of incompetence and cover-ups.

The growing influence of the Iranian regime ought to be a great cause of concern for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Following 911, Iran’s power in the Middle East has increased dramatically, as it now holds considerable sway in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, particularly given the American governments in action in the region. Prior to 911, hostile neighbours in the form of Saddam Hussain’s Iraq and the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan surrounded Iran. The US brought down the two regimes, eliminating the threat faced by Iran, paving the way for the mullahs theocracy to act on its foreign policy ambitions.
