Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (pictured), has said that the United States is using sex, money and Western lifestyles to infiltrate Iran’s decision-making elite.
Reuters quotes him as telling a gathering of the commanders of the Basij, IRGC’s voluntary militia arm:
“Two main things are used for this infiltration: money and sexual attractions. They are used to change beliefs, viewpoints and lifestyles, so that the affected person will think in the same way as an American.
“The main targets of this infiltration are the elites, influential people and decision-makers. This is why infiltration is such a great danger.”
The IRGC has rounded up artists, journalists and US citizens as part of the crackdown on infiltration by the West, the report said.
