Iran’s Legal Organ Market Where Brokers Make $10,000 a Month

Organ traders in Iran are preying on the poor and selling their livers, kidneys and eyeball for cash.
A new report shows that brokers working within the legal industry in Iran can make £45,000 a month targeting drug addicts and those in desperate need of money.
The NCRI has provided several British newspapers with the astonishing research.
It shows that people in Iran can sell their kidneys for $10,000 and can make $50,000 selling their livers.
Corneas, which is the front part of the eye, sell for around $20,000 while bone marrow goes for about $10,000.
The NCRI says that lungs and blood plasma are traded as well.
In the report, there are pictures showing organ sale adverts in an area of Tehran known as “Kidney Street” because of the prevalence of desperate people wanting to flog their body parts.
Indeed, despite Iran being among the top oil and gas producers in the world, citizens in their capital city are so impoverished they are willing to sell their healthy organs to feed their families.

Khamenei Approved Saudi Oil Attack

Last weekend’s major attack on Saudi oil facilities was approved by the Iranian Regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, but only on the condition that it be carried out in a way that made it possible to deny Iranian involvement, a U.S. official told CBS News.
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday displayed wreckage of the Iranian regime’s cruise missiles and drones. The circuit boards can be reverse engineered to determine the exact route the weapons flew. But U.S. officials said the most damning evidence is still unreleased satellite photos showing the Iranian Regime’s Revolutionary Guards making preparations for the attack at Ahvaz Air Base in southwestern Iran.
From there, the weapons flew through Kuwaiti airspace some 400 miles to their targets in Saudi Arabia. The satellite photos were of no use in stopping the attack since their significance was not realized until after the fact. “We were caught completely off guard,” one U.S. official said.

Saudi Minister Says Complacency Towards Iran’s Regime Will Encourage Further Hostilities

Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs Adel al-Jubeir said on Thursday complacency towards Iran will encourage it to commit further hostile acts which will have implications for the international community’s peace and security.
He said on Twitter, the weekend attacks which targeted Saudi Aramco’s oil installations was an “attack on the world” and that “this vicious attack is an extension of Iran’s sabotage and aggressive policies and the international community must shoulder its responsibilities and take a firm stance against Iran’s criminal behavior.”

European Parliament Strongly Condemns Repression of Women in Iran

On Thursday, the European Parliament adopted a resolution condemning the Iranian regime for its violations of women’s rights in Iran. The resolution was adopted by 608 votes in favor, 7 against and 46 abstentions.
The European Parliament resolution “condemns in the strongest terms the ongoing repression of women for objecting to compulsory veiling and for exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly; calls on the Iranian Government to respect the freedom of Iranian women to choose their own dress code.”
The resolution calls on the Iranian authorities to unconditionally release all arbitrarily jailed women’s rights defenders protesting against the hijab being compulsory, as well as all other human rights defenders, imprisoned and sentenced for simply exercising their right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly.
In her remarks to the session, MEP Anna Fotyga from Poland said she commended the women of Iran for their bravery, determination and will, not only for their struggle for women’s rights, but for their protests against the regime. She said the main Iranian opposition movement, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, was led by a woman.
