MEK IRAN : Time for the West to Increase Pressure on Mullahs
The Iranian regime’s fragile foundation is built on two pillars: domestic repression and the export of Islamist terrorism. Now is the moment to take decisive action against the Regime—through international sanctions and backing for Iranian Resistance groups on the ground—and demolish those foundations so that the entire dammed regime falls. Amnesty International recently published a 94-page study detailing the regime’s heinous human rights crimes, with an emphasis on the ever-increasing stream of executions.
Iran: Under Rouhani 3,500 people executed
Iran has the highest rate of executions per capita in the world, with some being made public to serve as a message to others and others being kept concealed from even the relatives of the deceased, let alone the eyes of the worldwide community.
Under the so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani, over 3,500 people have been executed, including 350 in 2017. This is unsurprising given Rouhani’s appointment of two distinct ‘Justice’ Ministers who were extensively involved in the massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, most of whom were followers of Iran’s main opposition, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). The Iranian regime is often regarded as the Middle East’smain source of terrorism.
Mullah’s regime is known as a source of terrorism
This is due to the fact that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and the Quds Force are the main aggressors in the Middle East, fighting for Iranian expansionism in countries such as Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen, as well as sponsoring terrorist groups regardless of which religion they claim to follow. This includes Sunni and Shiite organizations like Al Qaeda and ISIS, as well as Sunni and Shiite groups such as Hezbollah.
This can also be seen in the Regime’s support for the terrorist Houthis in Yemen, where the Regime ordered the assassination of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh after he attempted to initiate talks with the internationally recognized government and a ballistic missile attack on Saudi Arabia by an Iranian-made missile.
What the mullahs have done across the Middle East
Fortunately, some officials of the US government are willing to negotiate with the Iranian regime. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster are among those in this group.
“What the Iranians have done across the broader Middle East is fuel and accelerate these cycles of violence so that they can take advantage of these chaotic environments, weak states, and make them dependent on them for support,” McMaster said recently. We must address Iran’s expanding capabilities and ability to deploy proxies, militias, and terrorist organizations to further their hegemonic goals in the area.”
“Iran’s increased meddling abroad is not a policy signaling this regime’s strength,” human rights activist Heshmat Alavi remarked on Al Arabiya. In fact, faced with grave domestic issues, Tehran is attempting to hide its internal weakness by expanding its regional influence on the one hand while using saber-rattling on the other to deter the international community from taking serious action.”
He proposes tough sanctions against Iran’s regime in order to put an end to its human rights abuses, destabilizing activity in the Middle East, and support for terrorism.
“This is the language Iran understands,” Alavi said, “and more major sanctions against this regime are required.”
