International Consensus Rejects Tehran’s Lies and Supports Iranian Democratic Alternative
Responding to an increasingly discontent society and worldwide isolation, the regime tried to fool the world with the so-called “moderates” and “reformists.”Never fall for the regime’s treachery, the Iranian Resistance exposed these tactics, and time proved those efforts futile when in 2017, protesters across Iran chanted, “Reformists, principalists, the game is over!”
Though, the power-thirsty regime in Tehran played a new game by initiating the “fake alternative” industry. Every now and then, some mid-level Iranian celebrity or dubious group was promoted to stardom, introducing itself as an alternative to the regime. Some even built coalitions that proved to be very short-living grouplets, and Tehran’s message to the world and the Iranian people was eventually the same: there is no alternative to the Iranian regime.
The Supreme Leader Khamenei felt increasingly threatened and launched a new initiative. Either through speeches at Friday prayer sermons or using questionable elements in the Persian language media outlets abroad, the clerical tyranny started to promote a false narrative about the regime’s options of replacement.
Certain that the former monarchy would never pose a threat to their rule, the mullahs, and dubious media influencers almost entirely with a background in the regime’s propaganda machine intensified their demonization campaign against the Iranian Resistance while promoting the former dictatorship of the monarchy.
And the regime that openly and willingly boasts of terrorism and ridicules international scrutiny made sure to note that supporting the Iranian Resistance is a line that no one should cross.
Though defamation, designation, and terror threats have not deterred dozens of honorable leaders and legislators worldwide from backing down from a just cause. Their messages and speeches to the Iranian people and their freedom fighters will continue to defy the regime in Tehran and inspire hope for a restive nation.
Former US National Security Advisor General James Jones: “Indeed, Iran has been the scene of ongoing protests over the past few years. People from all walks of life, all streets of the society, have defied beatings, arrests, and even death to come out to the street and call for the overthrow of the ruling theocracy.

Former US State Department Director of Policy Planning Amb. Mitchell Reiss: protests are simply a call to impose a different type of tyranny on the Iranian people. A call back to the Shah and his repression. Nothing could be further from the truth. All of this is simply a mask, a smokescreen by the regime to try to distract people’s attention from its continued terrorism throughout the Middle East.”
Former German Minister of Defense Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer: “All the more, we have to stand by the Iranian people and their struggle for freedom. They reject Shah’s dictatorship and theocratic dictatorship and want a republic based on democratic values. Maryam Rajavi has stipulated the vision of such a republic and the way ahead in a Ten Point Plan for the future of Iran. This is the true alternative, the correct vision for a democratic, free, peaceful, and people respecting Iran. This is the Iran the world needs. Let us work together on it.”

MEP from Spain Javier Zarzalejos: “There is a democratic alternative in Iran and for Iranians. Like all citizens in the world have the right to choose their future. They have a right to freedom and democracy. The Iranian society has also the right to prosperity and opposite to poverty and misery which the clerical regime advocates. I sincerely wish you a successful summit which will allow you to convey the democratic alternative for Iran to the whole world from the European parliament.”
MEP from Poland Ryszard Czarnecki: “Those who claim that there is no alternative to the clerical regime are lying to appease the mullahs. They want the regime’s continued existence to pursue their commercial ties with it.”
“I know the alternative. I have been supporting the Iranian democratic opposition for many years. It is the NCRI, under the leadership of Madam Maryam Rajavi. Don’t look anywhere else, she is right here, ready with her people to move forward.”
