A public prosecutor of Iran has accused the CIA, Israel and Saudi Arabia of stirring unrest in the Islamic Republic which resulted in the deaths of more than 20 people over the last week.

Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said Thursday that the “main protector” of the agitation plan was an American national called Michael Andrea, a man he claims is a former CIA agent who formed a group tasked with fermenting discord in the country.

The state prosecutor also pointed to Israel and Saudi Arabia. Montazeri is quoted in Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) as saying that Andrea, and an unnamed officer affiliated with Israel’s spy agency Mossad, masterminded the plot dubbed the ‘Consequential Convergence Doctrine’ and that Saudi Arabia picked up the bill.

Montazeri’s comments echo those of the country’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who earlier claimed that enemies of Iran are using money, weapons and political warfare to create problems for the country’s leaders.

“As for the recent days’ developments [in the country], enemies have been united to create problems for the Islamic system by using various means… Including money, weapons, politics and security apparatus,” Khamenei said.

“I have a lot more to say about these developments but will share them with our dear people at an appropriate time,” he added.

Also Thursday, Iran’s Ambassador to the UN, Gholamali Khoshroo, accused the US of “grotesque” interference in his country’s affairs, and also of encouraging regime change in the Islamic Republic. He also blasted Donald Trump for inciting “disruptive acts.”

“The current US administration has crossed every limit in flouting rules and principles of international law governing the civilized conduct of international relations,” Khoshroo said in a letter to the UN.

Trump had previously tweeted that “The U.S. is watching!” as a wave of protests erupted last Thursday, with people said to be demonstrating against rising food prices, unemployment, and the overall economic situation. A reported 22 people died as the government cracked down on protesters.

      There is always a double standard applied by the US this also applies in Israel another country that is a threat to Sovereignty of nations and people while committing war crime acts and violating human rights while violating international laws and UN resolutions for decades going back to Resolution 100 and earlier.

    “PUBLIC PROSECUTOR ACCUSE CIA, ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA OF UNREST IN IRAN”…The Iranian PROSECUTOR is right, all you have to do is REMEMBER THIS…Wesley Clark ex-Supreme Allied Commander of NATO said: “We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off Iran”… ANY QUESTION?.

    Just as it was previously employed in Libya, Ukraine and Syria, this is next attempt to strategically implement yet more US state based Fourth Generation Warfare. The gist being, identify and exploit non state actors within an opponent state, the idealistic, the disgruntled, the internally or externally exiled, and any violent factions that seek to implement their own preferred form of government or reestablish an older previous government over the existing state leadership.
    The 4GW concept employs premise that, non-state entities tend to be most successful when they do not attempt to immediately impose their own rule, but rather simply attempt to undermine and
    delegitimize the state in which events are occurring. The overall strategic goal is to force a state
    adversary into expending swathes of political capital and state resources in attempting to restablish and maintain authority and order,ideally in such a authoritarian manner that it merely increases the chaos,
    until the state is deeply politically compromised or withdraws from power.
    The US Neo-Con leadership cabal evidently concluded it is far more politically and financially achievable to pursue a 4GW approach, rather than to simply continue launching into a sequence of Iraq 3.0 type conventional military conquests, to achieve their desired ‘full spectrum dominance’ agenda. For such a powerful state, with a massive intelligence agency with decades of experience in this very area, identifying, encouraging, instructing and financing a few hundred disgruntled and impressionable individuals is not a particularly difficult exercise – it is their long term covert specialty. Sequential regime change across adversarial states remains the US Neo-Con cabal’s primary geo strategic objective, irrespective of any domestic or international popular attitudes and objections may be toward continued US aggression and expansionism.
