MEK: Khamenei’s Remarks Reveal Iran’s Regime is Close to Downfall
Ali Khamenei, the Iranian regime’s supreme leader, appeared in public after a long absence on Tuesday and issued a warning of the mullahs’ dangling “security.”
His appearance was to attend an online ceremony for the graduation of a group of the regime’s armed forces and warn them of what was threatening the regime’s security, which of course is the people’s uprising.
Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK Iran/PMOI) said yesterday that there have been at least 1500 killed in #IranProtests in #Iran which began on 15 November 2019. #MEK Iran also released the names of 504 slain protesters.https://t.co/m9jsCDZTWC@USAdarFarsi #StopIranBloodshed pic.twitter.com/GwEFjWgYB6

He mentioned in his address that security in the country is highly valued. However, Iranians are beginning to become wise about security as they see that the regime is not only using the people’s wealth for its own ends, but they are using terrorism and oppression to achieve their ends.
Khamenei mentioned the increase in poverty in Iran, which of course is a result of wrong economic policies and institutionalized corruption. He even went on to admit that the regime had not managed well some areas and that there was a falling currency to deal with as well.

What frightens the regime the most is the large protests that took place last November. That event was protesting the high increases in fuel prices which took place through orders from the regime. The response by the regime was to use oppressive tactics to quell the uprising.
However, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) recorded accurate numbers of deaths gathered from sources on the ground and they reported over 1,500 people killed by security forces (and, importantly, none by protesters), of whom they have identified more than 800 so far.
This hasn’t stopped the unrest as was shown by the recent protests following the passing of the famous Iranian singer, Mohammad Reza Shajarian. The participants chanted “Death to the dictator.”

COVID-19 pandemic caused by the people, according to the regime
The Iranian opposition thinks differently and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), states that at least 125,500 people have died since COVID-19 spread into Iran. The regime’s only reaction is to force people to wear masks and issue fines if they don’t. In effect, they are blaming the people if they contract the virus. Khamenei even said that the people themselves when going outside is not careful enough and contract the virus.
#Iran Coronavirus Update
More than 125,500 people have died of the novel #coronavirus in 458 cities checkered across all of Iran's 31 provinces, according to the Iranian opposition PMOI/MEK.

Does Khamenei have a solution for the regime’s problems?
It appears not, as all he said was that any internal problems facing the country can be resolved within the country, even if they are due to outside influences. Basically, Khamenei’s speech was just a string of empty words with no solutions, especially for the COVID-19 crisis. In fact, they are in deadlock.
The central bank has been a bit more proactive. In response to the country’s economic problems, it will be injecting several million dollars each day into the market to help control the exchange rate. No-one has any idea where this money will come from, as any surplus is used to fund the regime’s terrorist tactics outside the country.
#MEK has been monitoring the situation since the beginning of the outbreak because the mullahs’ regime cannot be trusted to be honest in such situations. The regime claims that the numbers of people have died – just a sixth of the figure stated by the MEK. https://t.co/NHJhZt1z3c

Oppression the only way
Scared of losing control, Navid Afkari’s execution was ordered as a way of frightening people into submission. However, the public is clearly not intimidated by such tactics as recent protests following Shajarian’s death indicated this. The hatred and protests against Friday Prayer Leaders’ threats against women made the mullahs step back from their initial threats.
#MaryamRajavi This regime must be expelled from UN and its leaders brought to justice for their continuing crimes against humanity and the violations of human dignity. The international community must not allow this regime to bring medieval edicts to the 21st-century #MEK #Iran pic.twitter.com/Gawe6BbAR0

So, in summary, the mullahs’ regime cannot find any way of solving the country’s problems that it has caused so it is just waiting to be overthrown.
The Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran), believes that the regime is using a callous response to the pandemic in Iran as part of its arsenal against any protests and suggestions of an uprising. However, the regime is living on borrowed time, and it is hard to imagine that it can resist the tidal wave of discontent about to engulf it.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI): The Iran uprising cannot be extinguished. The battle of Iranian people, MEK resistance units, and the great Liberation Army will march forward and end the ruling religious tyranny in Iran.
Five nationwide protest rallies since 2018 show explicitly that the Iranian people no longer want to be dominated by the current regime.
