MEK Iran: NCRI Gathers European Policymakers to Condemn on Iran’s Genocide, and Nuclear Deceit
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held its newest meeting, “Holding the Mullahs’ Regime Accountable for Genocide, Terrorism, and Nuclear Defiance,” on January 17 in Auvers-Sur-Oise, near Paris. The event featured several famous former European politicians as well as several Iranians residing abroad, with Maryam Rajavi, the NCRI’s President-elect, as the keynote speaker.The keynote speaker was Mrs. Rajavi. “Why do the governing mullahs incite wars in response to the West’s restraint?” Why have they accelerated their pursuit of a nuclear weapon? What is it that makes them so enraged? Why does Khamenei adopt initiatives that appear to be counterproductive to the regime?
Khamenei wishes to strengthen his police-military apparatus
“To all of these concerns, the answer is that the ecclesiastical dictatorship is in the process of being overturned. Yes, to avoid the tremendous threat of overthrow, Khamenei takes fewer risks,” she emphasized.”The government is blatantly refusing to invest in enhancing the Iranian people’s livelihood, welfare, health, education, employment, and housing,” the NCRI President-elect continued. The public’s dissatisfaction grows as a result of this circumstance. Khamenei, on the other hand, wishes to strengthen his police-military apparatus because the regime is on the verge of collapse.”
“Western governments have long paid the price of accommodating religious fascism from the coffers of the Iranian people,” Mrs. Rajavi stated, highlighting the West’s damaging appeasement approach. However, the security and fundamental interests of Western countries and society are now at stake, in addition to the interests of the Iranian and Middle Eastern peoples. “Do Western governments want religious fascism and terrorism’s central banker to have nuclear weapons?”
Guy Verhofstadt: it is our shared responsibility to speak out
Guy Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, began his statement by declaring, “We must discuss the regime of Iran’s systematic impunity.” It is our shared responsibility to speak out against breaches of democracy and human rights. It is our responsibility to defend democracy and fundamental rights.”He noted that the regime’s impunity reached its pinnacle in June 2021, when Ebrahim Raisi was named the regime’s new president. Raisi was one of the major perpetrators of Iran’s 1988 massacre, which resulted in the deaths of over 30,000 political prisoners.
John Bercow, the former Speaker of the House of Commons of the UK
“Failure to investigate the 1988 massacre gives the dictatorship a green light to continue its crimes against the Iranian people,” he said at the end of his speech. In his statement, John Bercow, the former Speaker of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, remarked that he wanted to commemorate the Iranian people’s suffering and that he believes that freedom is the ambition of all human beings.” I embrace your appeal for a secular and democratic republic, and I endorse Mrs. Rajavi’s ten-point proposal for a free Iran,” he told the Iranian people.
Fredrik Reinfeldt: Mullahs abusing their position to damage people
He also admitted that international organizations’ continued inability to act in response to the 1988 massacre “had had a catastrophic impact on the victims’ relatives.”The regime’s extreme beliefs of Islam, according to former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, is “a very dangerous mixture” of authoritarianism and religious dictatorship. He questioned how the regime can believe that they can rule Iran in the name of God while also abusing their position to damage the country’s population.
Franco Frattini: His message to Iranians is” this regime must go”
Former Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini agreed with Reinfeldt, saying, “Those who kill or allow others to kill in the name of God are committing significant blasphemies.”
“The Iranian people must not feel alone,” he said. If a group of countries band together and send a message to the Iranian people that this regime must go, that it cannot use its power to murder its own people, that the Iranian people are supported by the international community, you and your Iranian friends will feel reassured that they have a good group of countries ready to speak up and take concrete action.”
