Iran: President’s younger brother detained over corruption

On July 16, Iranian media reported that Hossein Fereydoun, brother and adviser to Iranian president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani was detained over allegedly corruption charges. But since he couldn’t come up with the bail money, he was sent to jail.

Rex Tillerson, the anti-Iran secretary of state immediately called upon Iran to release any US citizens or other foreigners being held on fabricated charges.

That reminds me the saga of the three innocent US Jews who were arrested by Iranian authorities on July 31, 2009 over spying for CIA and Mossad. They’re sentenced in a court of law. However, after serving only 10% of their sentences – then president Ahmadinejad ordered their release on health reasons – a huge mistake.

For me, it was a non-significant news item to waste my time as former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the most demonized by the Zionists and the Iranian supporters of Rouhani, the so-called Reformists (the so-called “moderates” who want to re-establish friendly relations with the US and the Zionist occupied European nations).

Marc Champion in an article published at Israeli hasbara Bloomberg (March 8, 2016) warned the US lawmakers that there was no difference between the so-called moderate Reformists and the hardliner Conservatives – as when it comes to Israel and Jews, both Iranian political camps hate them.

Many non-brainwashed people wonder why these two groups in power since the 1979 Islamic Revolution have not slaughtered country’s 30,000 Jewish minority which refused to migrate to the Zionist entity.

Then I remembered reading an ‘investigative’ article published at Israeli propaganda website (January 4, 2017) claiming that a coup was planned by the 47 Conservative members of Majlis (Parliament) by demanding an investigation of moderate president Rouhani’s younger brother Hossein Fereydoun. The article also enlighrened me that president Rouhani changed his family name Fereydoun to Rouhani (meaning spiritual person). I was surprised that the website didn’t accuse Rouhani being born into a Jewish family as it had accused Ahmadinejad in 2007.

This not the first time that hard-liners have accused Hossein Fereydoun of corruption as part of efforts to attack Rouhani. On July 12, 2016, Ghoddousi accused Fereydoun of imitating the voice of his brother and ordering economic centers not to stop import of some unauthorized goods from the US,” claimed the al-Monitor.

I always see a Zionist agenda whenever an Israel-hasbara media defends a Muslim leader, Politician, writer or cleric. I learned that fact from my friendly blogger Gilad Atzmon once said: “When a Jew says Shalom, he doesn’t mean peace for non-Jews – but what is good for the Jews.”

Hossein Fereydoun was member of Iranian delegate in Vienna (Austria) nuclear talks headed by FM Dr. Javad Zarif (see him in middle with Zarif and John Kerry in photo at the top taken on July 14, 2015).
