Mohammad Maleki: Islamic Republic is taking its last breath
[Interview with Mohammad Maleki, Iranian academic and pro-democracy activist and former president of the University of Tehran]
Dorr TV—November 27
MOHAMMAD MALEKI: Things are things happening in the country [Iran], such as going on strikes every day, people assembling: thousands, two thousands, three thousands of them, factories not paying wages, not having any money to pay, etc. All these issues show that the establishment [of Iran] is taking its last breath. This is my belief.
He [Supreme Leader] thinks he can appoint someone as the leader of the country for 10 years, one of the authorities, I don’t know who … Mr. Raeesi … Mr. So-and-So. Then after 10 years, that person will be unable to work, so his [Khemenei’s] son can take over. This is wishful thinking, in my opinion. I believe that corruption, theft, dishonesty, lying, deceit etc. have reached a point where they [the establishment] can no longer save themselves from this situation.
