Dr Manouchehr Farhangi assassinated in Spain

My friend Arvin Khoshnood reports that Iranian businessman and philanthropist, Manouchehr Farhangi, has been stabbed to death outside his home in Spain. Mr Farhangi was an Iranian zoroastrian and monarchist who supported various opposition groups against the occupational Islamic Republic through financial, political, and cultural support. Mr Farhangi founded the "International College of Spain" which today is a very prestigious academic institution.

This could be yet another assassination of an Iranian patriot abroad by the Islamic Republic's terror forces.

Condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr Farhangi whose new year had to begin in this tragic way.


UPDATE 1: http://www.farhangiran.com/
UPDATE 2: Sarbaze Kuchak has translated a Spanish article on the assasination of Dr Farhangi which includes the prospect that this could have been a politically motivated murder by a supporter of the terrorist Islamic Republic occupying Iran.

Very sad. But sadder is the fact that these crimes are not reported by corrupt western mass media at all. I saw nothing about him when I heard first about it on iran press news web site.

Mr. Manouchehr Farhangi was a Father to everybody (Iranian and non Iranian) who knew him. He helped many people. He will be missed a lot. It will be impossible to forget him.

As an educator, I'm deeply saddened to learn that this man was targeted in this cowardly act.

I personally knew Mr. Farhangi from Dehkadeh Saheli. He was one of the most precious Iranians. Why must a man like him die like that? My sympathy is with his nice family.

Thank you for the information. So sad to hear this news and so upsetting that this crime was not reported widely and only Iran press news has posted this news on it’s website. I have a Persian radio show in Ottawa Canada and read this sad news on our last night's news part. www.RadioHamseda.net

On behalf of Radio Hamseda Ottawa I send my sincere condolences to Dr. Farhangi's family and all Iranians and non Iranians.
In Peace,
Producer, Radio Hamseda Ottawa, Canada

Many know who the agents of the "black robe" are living abroad. Why not assassinate a few of them in revenge?
