BBC’s Anti-MEK Propaganda

BBC fake news

While mullahs have been pushed toward a deadly cliff by the Iranian People and people of the region countries, BBC has rushed to save them through spreading lies against the MEK

The BBC published a lie-filled report about the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) based solely on the statements of two Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) agents, even though the MEK had spoken with the BBC journalists for five-and-a-half hours at their Albanian headquarters of Ashraf 3, which brings the whole notion of balance and accuracy into question.

The piece was so bias that Shahin Gobadi, Press Spokesman of the MEK, had to ask what the Regime offered the BBC to secure this “inexplicable and vulgar hit-piece” against the MEK.

Gobadi wrote a response to the BBC report where he said that the only explanation for the libelous anti-MEK website article is that the previous slanderous anti-MEK radio program didn’t please the mullahs enough.

He wrote that the BBC was wrong to claim that the MEK didn’t want to speak with the BBC, when their only reservations were about taking part in a hit-piece scripted by the MOIS who have previously plotted terror attacks against the MEK in Albania, France, and Iraq, even providing documents to prove this.

In fact, the BBC need not even take the MEK’s word for it. They could instead listen to the Albanian Police, who revealed details of the regime’s plots against the MEK in Albania less than three weeks before this article was published. They could also take the word of the French, German, and Belgian police forces, several UN officials, and many politicians across the world.

So who are these MOIS agents? Gobadi explains that Gholam-Ali Mirzai, a prisoner-of-war captured by the MEK after attacking them, was released and offered a safe haven by the MEK, should he not want to return to Iran. He was even sent to Albania by the MEK but was asked to leave.

He lied when he said that he was not told about his family’s visit to Iraq when he resided in the MEK camp there. After all, the camp was accessible to everyone and, at the time, the representatives of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the US military were present at the camp and would certainly have intervened.

The journalist even admits in the article that Mirzai visited the Iranian Embassy in Tirana and quoted a diplomat as saying that “some of the ‘disassociates’ are certainly working for Iran”.

While the other informant, Hassan Heyrani, admitted in his own handwriting that he’d been expelled from the MEK over “intelligence, security concerns, and his treason”, for which he had apologized; a document that is publically available and could have been accessed by the reporter.

Gobadi wrote: “These bogus narratives pursue only one objective: Mollifying the criminals ruling Iran at the expense of [the MEK] who have dedicated their lives to democracy and freedom in Iran, and more than 100,000 of whom have been executed by the ruling mullahs, including 30,000 massacred in 1988.”

The Iranian Regime is facing multiple crises domestically and internationally, so it feels the need to hit back at the MEK, which is the democratic opposition movement capable of overthrowing them in favor of a Free Iran. But why does the BBC feel the need to defend the mullahs?

Gobadi wrote: “Perhaps, from the perspective of the Iranian regime’s western appeasers and benefactors [the] only “crime” of MEK [is] their singular focus on, and unflinching dedication to, one sacred mission: liberating Iran from the yoke of the monsters who wear the turban and the robe and exploit religion to justify their savagery, unmatched by any dictatorial regime since the Second World War.”

BBC: Ayatollahs’ Mouthpiece Against MEK

BBC_fake_news1

BBC on behalf of the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security tried to run a demonizing campaign under the disgraced banner of “former MEK members”

Helping mullahs to escape the deadly crisis they are facing these days, once again BBC showed up as a mouthpiece of the religious fascist regime ruling Iran. In an article on 11 November 2019, BBC tried to echo the four-decade false allegations against the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK).

In a frustrated effort to tarnish MEK’s portrait and making it appears as though there is no alternative to the Iranian regime and that the West is better served by continuing the policy of appeasement, the mullahs have stepped up their demonizing campaign against the Iranian resistance and the MEK.

Again, the BBC on behalf of the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), tried to run a demonizing campaign under the disgraced banner of “former MEK members”.

The mudslinging by the current functionaries of MOIS, disguising themselves as MEK’s “former members,” have repeatedly been exposed by irrefutable documents and evidence, and condemned, as was the case in a German court’s ruling against Der Spiegel for regurgitating similar smears.

It is worth mentioning that, the Albanian Police exposed the details of the Iranian regime’s terrorist plots against the MEK members in Albania through the services of “former members”, on October 23, 2019.

The BBC has tried to portrait the MEK as a cult, as the MOIS has tried it for the past four decades. Last summer, some 350 dignitaries from 47 countries spent five days at Ashraf-3, the home of MEK members in Albania, and saw everything up close and personal. So, there is no need to add anything but noting the remarks of the Former Mayor of New York City and the US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani when he referred the MEK members saying: “These are people who are dedicated to freedom”

He added: “And if you think that’s a cult, then there’s something wrong with you,”

It was not just Mayor Giuliani, dozens of political dignitaries from different political diversities have repeatedly argued the tag of “cult” in the past forty years.

Parroting the propaganda of the notorious Intelligence service of a barbarian regime, of course, is not an honor for BBC; however, the Iranian regime’s critical situation has compelled BBC to lend a hand to the mullahs.


These efforts against the MEK are in vain, however, the growing popularity of the MEK and the uprising against the Iranian regime in Iraq and Lebanon, is the best reply to the demonizing campaign against the MEK by both the mullahs and the BBC.

Dramatic Acceleration of MEK's Units Activities

Dramatic Acceleration of MEK's Units Activities

In the beginning of the school year, the resistance unit’s activities increased in many cities in Iran.

Since the beginning of October, Iran witnessed a remarkable expansion of the MEK resistance unit’s activities, including setting fire to the billboards of the Iranian regime’s leaders. Despite the suppressive measures by the security forces in Iran, the defiant youth accelerate their protests against the regime. During this period of time, the MEK resistance units torched the billboards of Khomeini and Khamenei and also the signs of the Basij (the regime’s paramilitary suppressive forces affiliated to the IRGC) centers in Tehran, Shiraz, Khoy, Bandarabbass, Maku, Lahijan, Orumiyeh, Kermanshah, Zahedan, and Khoramabad.

The resistance units of the MEK hung the posters of Massoud Rajavi, Leader of the Iranian Resistance, and Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in many cities across the country.

Simultaneously, resistance against the religious dictatorial regime ruling Iran expanded in Tehran, Shiraz, Arak, Haft Tapeh, and Lordegan; all supported by the Iranian people particularly college and high-school students.

Following the beginning of the school year, protests by the students resumed in many colleges and universities in Iran.

At the University of Tehran, and Art & Architect College in Mazandaran students held a protest gathering on 22 October 2019. Students of the Science & Industry University in Tehran protested against food poisoning of students on the university campus.

MEK as the main opposition in Iran through its activities both on the ground and in social media has had the most tangible impact on the Iranian people. Many protests and protest actions and gatherings are inspired and led by the MEK. Iranian people consider the MEK as the only hope for a better future. They find the ten-point plan of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as a platform for a free Iran.

The MEK is the most organized movement in Iran’s recent history. In June 1981, just two and a half years after the 1979 revolution, the MEK managed a demonstration in Tehran in which 500,000 people participated. Now, the resistance units of the MEK, are active in almost all of Iran’s 31 provinces.

Dr. Maria Ryan, CEO of Cottage Hospital, said at an international conference in Ashraf3:

“You’re really organized. And that’s important for people to see because as we move the regime out in Iran, it’s going to take a lot of work to put up a government and stand it up. And this is how I feel your strength is coming through — you’re thinking about the future, you’re organizing and you’re disciplined. I’m very impressed by this.”

MEK-Iran:Time Magazine is wrong about Iran Regime

Rally in NY- Second Day

Time magazine recently published an article on October 4, with the title “Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei Is One Despot Trump Might Not Win Over”, but there were some major issues related to the magazine’s assessment of mullah’s regime and the organized Iranian opposition group the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK). What’s more, when Shahin Gobadi, the Press Spokesman for the MEK in Paris wrote a rebuttal, Time failed to publish it.

Iran’s Regime Continues to Spread Misinformation Against MEK

Gobadi noted that the author of the piece took an “irrelevant” and “unwarranted” swipe at the MEK in a way that seemed to be parroting the mullahs’ narrative that there is no viable alternative to the regime and that the West must appease them at any cost.

The author spouted several long-disproved claims about the MEK, including being a Marxist cult and having minimal support. These are exactly the sort of far-fetched claims made by the mullahs on a regular basis.

Now, those who have actually taken the time to visit the MEK headquarters in Albania and speak to the residents up close and privately, like the over 350 bipartisan former and current officials and lawmakers from 47 countries who attended the Free Iran rally in July,  have a very different view. We can also see how popular the MEK is because its activities, including the five-day Free Iran rally in Albania, are funded through donations by Iranians at home and abroad.

Gobadi wrote that the author is also wrong about the current state of the Iranian regime.

He said:

“The mullahs are on borrowed time and have never been so fragile and vulnerable at home as anti-regime protests by different sectors of society have persisted despite brutal repression. Last week’s uprising by thousands of people in Lordegan, central Iran, in which angry protesters set fire to offices of the Governor and the representative of the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, while chanting “death to the dictator” was the latest in the series of protests, which began in late 2017 in 160 Iranian cities and shook the regime to its foundations. The economy is on the verge of collapse and the mullahs’ regional transgressions have backfired.”

He continued to explain that the regime’s regional belligerence is just “an attempt to divert attention from the terminal domestic crises gripping the regime” and that senior officials admit to fighting abroad to avoid a civil war that the mullahs could not survive.

 Ashraf 3: The Headquarter of MEK

Ashraf 3, Albania

Ashraf 3, Albania, the headquarter of MEK, hosted hundreds of international dignitaries from July 11 to July 15, 2019

The Iranian Resistance, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), came to Albania in 2016 and created a whole new city out of the undeveloped land. The MEK has, understandably, been a focus of media attention as the cause for regime change in Iran gets more attention, so many journalists have flocked to see them in Ashraf 3.

One of those journalists is Tudor Dixon, from America’s Voice, who met the MEK at Ashraf 3 back in July during the Free Iran conference.

Dixon noted that dignitaries from around the world came to throw their support behind the MEK, including prominent politicians from the US.

One of these politicians was former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who gave a speech to the conference, asking how the world could stand for the Regimes abuses against the MEK when the world is supposed to “stand for freedom and democracy and decency”.

Mayor Giuliani told America’s Voice: “This is a movement that represents all of the values of America; freedom, democracy, gender equality, rule of law. They’re up against the most brutal regime in the world; a regime of terror, who have murdered 120,000 of the MEK members.”

Dixon’s report covers the exhibition at Ashraf 3 that honors the fallen MEK members by documenting the Regime’s abuses of the MEK and show outsiders the horror. She also interviewed a survivor of the massacre.

“He reported that he had been forced to lie face down on the bed in his cell, with his big toes tied together so that he could not move his feet and then he was beaten with cables.” reports Dixen.

Dixon then spoke with a member of the Albanian parliament about why they had host MEK and he explained that it wasn’t just about security but also about the MEK’s fight for the Iranian people’s “dignity”, which will only come about through “life, liberty and [the] pursuit of happiness”.

Ashraf 3 has also been a point of visit for high-level Albanian authorities.

On September 13, Albanian President Ilir Meta visited Ashraf 3 and visited Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

Before leaving, President Meta signed the guest book in memoriam of the Iranian Resistance’s martyrs’ at the exhibition.

He wrote: “It was an extraordinary experience for me to become acquainted with the unimaginable sacrifices for freedom and social justice of this movement… We will be proud that we did our best for you to enjoy freedom. Until then, this will be your home

Ramesh Sepehrrad; In a free Iran only the ballot box determines the legitimacy of the future government

Mrs. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC

Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC delivering a speech to the New York Conference discussing the future of Iran-September 24, 2019

In a conference discussing the future of Iran, the representative of the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC) outlined the organization’s vision for the future of Iran.

Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC, delivered a speech that was warmly receipted by the audience. Below please find an excerpt of her speech:

“It is my privilege and honor to speak to you on behalf of the Organization of Iranian- American Community who for more than twenty-five years has been primarily focusing on echoing the voice of the Iranian people as their struggle for human rights and democracy in our native land Iran.

Over the last century Iran has seen two brutal dictatorships, under the Pahlavi’s monarchy which in collaboration with the mullahs worked against the democratic and nationalistic government of Dr. Mosaddeq and now dealing with the misogynist regime since 1979, the religious fascist of mullahs who are incapable of reform or even engaging in a meaningful way with the Iranian people or for the rest of the world for that matter.

When it comes to this regime because this regime believes in the system of Velayat-e Faqih, this regime is committed and remains committed to the system of Velayat-e Faqih, and that means an absolute power that is only for non-elected male clerics, according to the regime’s constitution.

What has to be very clear is that the Iranian people’s rejection of both monarchy and mullahcracy is based on historic lessons from their struggle for freedom and democracy over the last several decades. This is not a partisan preference; it is simply the reality of Iran’s recent history. The 1979 revolution is Iran’s historic rejection of monarchy. While the mullahs have high jacked the revolution, the waves of the popular uprising in rejection of the mullahs during the 1980s, 1990s and most notably the 2009 and 2018 are the ongoing rejection of this regime in its entirety.

People of Iran, are not making any distinction between so-called reformers and hardliners, so why should we? This red line has been drawn by the blood and sacrifices of more than 120,000 martyrs for freedom in order to move Iran away from despotism of the past and religious tyranny of present. Therefore, it is our red-line too and crossing of this red-line under whatever pretext, is unacceptable, because it is undermining the true democracy movement in Iran.

The international community has not yet recognized the depth and extent of the ongoing crimes against the people of Iran, especially, the 1988 massacre of political prisoners. In our view, just as the Mayor (Giuliani) said Khamenei, Rouhani, Zarif, Qasem Soleimani, Ebrahim Raisi after four decades of execution and oppression, war, terrorism, subversion, mayhem by the terrorist IRGC and Ministry of Intelligence are all international criminals and must stand trial in the international tribunals and courts.

All of us gathered here agree that the Iranian regime is the enemy of not just the Iranian people but also the rest of the world. We agree that this regime must go. We also agree that it is up to Iranian people and their organized opposition movement, who shall and will bring this regime down in its entirety. We have also gathered here to emphasize the path forward for free Iran. OIAC stands for a non-nuclear, democratic, secular, Republic of Iran based on the following key principals:

  • In a free Iran, only the ballot box determines the legitimacy of the future government.
  • Freedom of speech, expression, association, and religion for all Iranians, and equal rights for all ethnic groups in the framework of Iran’s territorial integrity is a must in a free Iran. As my Baluchi sister said: we won’t let this regime colonize us any longer, we won’t let them divide us based on ethnic lines, we are all standing for the territorial integrity of Iran. We are Iranians first and we want this regime down together and if anyone has any doubt that we cannot do this, I will invite them to look to the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), where the Baluchis, the Kurds, the Turks, and the Fars, all of them, all the Iranian ethnic groups, have come together under one banner, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), fighting against this regime. We have done it before and Iran will do it again. Iran will do it again because the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the platform that it has, represents the diversity of Iran. This is our strengths. We will not let them colonize our ethnic groups.
  • In a free Iran, complete gender equality in all political, social, cultural, and economic spheres women of our native land are on the forefront to overthrow this misogynist regime; and we stand with them wholeheartedly.


In a free Iran, women will have all their rights to choose their clothing, and any exploitation of women on whatever pretext will be rejected.

In a free Iran, we would have a commitment to the universal declaration of human rights and all international covenants.

In a free Iran, the death penalty will be abolished; no more political prisoners, no more prisoners of conscience, and they will be released after the downfall of this regime.

The path to progress and prosperity in a free Iran is based on the followings:

  • Justice and equal opportunity for employment and occupation are imperative for all Iranians in a free market economy. Cronyism, nepotism, corruption or the mafia-style of government shall not be acceptable.
  • The rights of workers, farmers, nurses, employees, teachers, educators, retired people will be upheld and respected.
  • The diaspora, this is all of us, will have a duty of reversing the brain drain and support the rebuilding of Iran based on progressive labor laws and rights. Forced child labor must be abolished.
  • The future of Iran’s youth will be in high-quality education so that Iran can develop the next generation of workforce and scholars to thrive and contribute to the modern world. Iranian scientific community shall focus on humane advancement of technology, knowledge, innovation, and infrastructure for improving the lives of Iranian people.
  • No more weapons of mass destruction; we stand for a non-nuclear Iran.
  • Iranian scientific community shall also focus on reversing the environmental crises, water shortage, unnatural floods, earthquakes, through utilizing best practices in order to reverse the damage done under this criminal regime.
  • Iran shall live in peace and coexistence and cooperation and mutual respect with its neighbors and the international community. No more regional meddling and no more support for terrorist or the extremist groups.

So at this point, I’ll ask all delegates to think a moment, and envision an Iran based on these principals, and the path to recovery, an Iran that is worthy of our heritage, our history and the sacrifices made to date. Together, we must refrain from divisiveness. We need to aim all of our energies and efforts to change this regime first.

In 2002 the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Massoud Rajavi announced the NCRI’s plan for promoting the national solidarity front to encompass all Iranians and political entities who reject the monarchy and the system of Velayat-e Faqih and our campaigning for a democratic independent and secular republic to come together. This call was faced with overwhelming misinformation and disinformation campaign by regime cronies and MOIS agents.

For too long, the Iranian regime’s lobbyists and apologists have worked to divide us by propagating falsehood and smear campaigns, lies and propaganda. This must stop. We must put an end to the disinformation campaign and the echo chamber against the MEK and the NCRI. We will end this.

This regime-change movement inside Iran is growing stronger day by day, because of the MEK’s resistance units and their ongoing efforts that are expanding to organize the public. We can do the same in exile, this means we need to be entirely focused on the threat of the Iranian regime and the need to overthrow this regime with all the factions within this regime. We need not be distracted by the regime’s ongoing propaganda as we push for further isolation of the regime, to provide support for regime change by Iranians. We must demonstrate political maturity and commitment to these principals and be fully committed to them, which can guarantee an enduring and effective unity against this regime. I’m hopeful that we will get there in solidarity which did not begin today, it has been going on for the last 40 years because of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.”

British MPs condemn Iran’s  IRGC and MOIS in Early Day Motion

British Praliament

MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament raise attention about the IRGC

Cross-party MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament have used an Early Day Motion to raise attention about the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and their role in the suppression of the Iranian people.

EDM 2333 strongly condemns the IRGC’s role in oppressing the Iranian people, particularly during anti-government protests, and describes the IRGC as a serious threat to the security, freedom, and welfare of the Iranian people, as well as the peace and stability in the Middle East and the world at large.

The British MPs emphasized that the IRGC and the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are destructive and terrorist actors, citing a long history of their deadly operations, export of terrorism, murder of foreign nationals, and assassination of Iranian dissidents, particularly members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

One case they cited to demonstrate this was the foiled bomb plot against the NCRI’s annual “Free Iran” grand gathering in Paris on June 2018, where 100,000 gathered to support the 10-point plan of NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi to bring freedom to Iran.

The British MPs called on their government to blacklist the IRGC and the MOIS as a foreign terrorist organization, something they say is in the best interests of the Iranian people, the UK, and the international community.

Bob Blackman, the primary sponsor of EDM 2333 and a major supporter of the MEK and NCRI, said in a statement: “The IRGC and MOIS stand at the center of regime’s domestic crackdown and efforts to create an international crisis with increased aggression in the region and terrorism in Europe as the popular protests across Iran that began last year are undermining the theocracy’s survival.”

Sir David Amess, co-chair of the British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF), said: “The EDM, which many of my cross-party colleagues in the House of Commons and I supported, backs the call by NCRI President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi for the designation of IRGC and MOIS as terrorist entities and calls on the Government to proscribe these repressive organs as foreign terrorist organizations in their entirety.”

It is time for the British government and the European Union to listen to these MPs and the Iranian people and take a firm policy against the Regime by imposing sanctions on the IRGC and MOIS, especially given the role of these groups in taking hostage British citizen Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe and seizing a British oil tanker in international waters. It is right that they support the Iranian people’s uprising and their organized Resistance.

Albanian President, Ilir Meta, meets Iran opposition leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi in Ashraf 3, home to MEK members, in Albania

On September 13, Albanian President Ilir Meta visited Ashraf 3 in Albania, where over 3,000 members of the Iranian Resistance group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), have been safely relocated from Iraq.

The MEK members welcomed President Meta and Fatmir Mediu, who is chair of the Albanian Republican Party and Meta’s National Security Adviser, with open arms.

During President Meta’s visit, he met with President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Maryam Rajavi and they toured the exhibition detailing the 120 years of struggle for freedom in Iran. Then, he met with MEK members.

President Meta told the MEK members: “I had no idea about the extent of your sacrifice and the genocide you and your supporter have endured. Having the possibility to see so many people, women and children, massacred was shocking.”

He continued:  “This was also an indication of a widespread movement inside Iran and showed how tyrannical the regime is. This is really bad not only for the people of Iran but also for regional and global peace and stability…I was very impressed with the Ten-point Plan of Mrs. Rajavi because it is based on fundamental freedoms and will guarantee prosperity and democracy for the Iranian people. All of us here in Albania are united in our support for your efforts and determination.

Albanian President and Maryam Rajavi

These comments were, of course, welcomed by Rajavi, who said that the Iranian people will never forget Albania’s hospitality towards the MEK. She then praised Albania’s decisiveness over the Iranian Regime, most notably expelling the Regime’s ambassador for his involvement in terrorism. She said that Albania serves as a role model for other countries in this regard.

Rajavi then reiterated a fact that should no longer need to be underscored; that the Iranian Regime cannot be reformed and appeasement does not work. In fact, appeasing religious dictatorship only encourages more terrorism and fundamentalism. She stated that regime change by the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance is the only way to achieve regional and international peace and stability.

Before leaving, President Meta signed the guest book in memoriam of the Iranian Resistance’s martyrs’ at the exhibition.

He wrote: “It was an extraordinary experience for me to become acquainted with the unimaginable sacrifices for freedom and social justice of this movement… We will be proud that we did our best for you to enjoy freedom. Until then, this will be your home.

Guard of honor at MEK headquarter in Albania-July 2019

The Iranian Regime has denied basic human rights to the Iranian people, especially women, for 40 years now, but the pro-democracy movement has remained strong and active, despite vicious reactions by the Regime.

On occasion, this resistance has been visible to the world, such as for the 2009 protests against the rigged election and the nationwide uprising in January 2018. In every uprising, protest, and pro-democracy movement, women have been at the forefront and, according to women’s rights advocate Dr. Maria Ryan, that is no accident.

She wrote for The Hill on Thursday, September 12, 2019, that the mullahs have targeted Iranian women with “repressive, misogynistic laws and execution”, explaining that a female soccer fan died from self-immolation last week because she expected to be jailed for attending a football match.

Ryan spoke at the annual conference of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in July, at Ashraf 3, the new home of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), during a panel entitled “Women in the Iranian Resistance: Defying the Misogynist Regime, Paying the Price of Freedom”.

Ryan wrote of that event: “I met many brave women who survived the mullahs’ brutal crackdown. Many said they had suffered in torture chambers for long years. They shared their stories with me, their personal suffering and the loss of loved ones.”

She continued: “They explained that, while living in Iran, they were not able to choose their own clothes or their professions; a girl as young as nine years old could be married, they said, and a man could have multiple wives. They were forced to leave Iran and were promised safety in camps inside Iraq, they recounted to me, only to be targeted by bombs and gunfire. Several of them said they lost many of their friends to these attacks.”

Ryan said that daily life had become so difficult for many Iranians that growing numbers are turning to drugs to dull the pain or selling their organs to make ends meet. She said that, despite this, the women she met “inspired” her with their “determination, loyalty, patriotism and faith”.

She explained that the NCRI and its members want basic freedoms and are preparing to serve as an interim government if the Iranian people overthrow the mullahs.

Ryan said: “Whether or not you believe that regime change in Iran is truly just around the corner, I am absolutely convinced that with such women in the ranks of the resistance, the change will come to Iran.”
