Key Figure in the Massacre of MEK Members Listed by US

The US Treasury

Monday, November 4, 2019, the US Treasury sanctioned top officials of Iranian regime including the son of the Supreme leader and Ebrahim Raisi, head of Iran’s Judiciary and a key member of the Death Commission in 1988 sending 30,000 MEK members to gallows

On Monday the US Treasury imposed sanctions, on the Iranian regime’s Armed Forces General Staff and nine individuals, including Ebrahim Raissi, a key figure in the Death Commission responsible for the execution of 30,000 MEK members in 1988. As the US Treasury statement says, these individuals “are appointees of, or have acted for or on behalf of, Ali Khamenei, the Iranian regime’s unelected Supreme Leader whose office is responsible for advancing Iran’s radical agenda.”

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury took the action to “block funds from flowing to a shadow network of Ali Khamenei’s military and foreign affairs advisors who have for decades oppressed the Iranian people, exported terrorism, and advanced destabilizing policies around the world.”

“Specifically, the action targets Ali Khamenei’s appointees in the Office of the Supreme Leader, the Expediency Council, the Armed Forces General Staff, and the Judiciary,” according to the statement released by the OFAC.

This sanction coincides with the 40th anniversary of the seizing by Iranian thugs of the US embassy in Tehran, taking more than fifty Americans hostage for 444 days.

Steve Mnuchin, the US Treasury Secretary, said:

“These individuals are linked to a wide range of malign behaviors by the regime, including bombings of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983 and the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association in 1994, as well as torture, extrajudicial killings, and repression of civilians. This action further constricts the Supreme Leader’s ability to execute his agenda of terror and oppression,”

The individuals who have been sanctioned include: Ebrahim Raisi, the head of Iran’s Judiciary and a key member of the Death Commission in 1988 sending 30,000 MEK members and supporters to gallows, Mojtaba Khamenei, the son of Ali Khamenei, the regime’s Supreme Leader,; Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani, the Supreme Leader’s Chief of Staff; Vahid Haghanian, an executive deputy for Ali Khamanei; Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to the Supreme Leader; Gholam-Ali Hadad-Adel, a member of the Expediency Council and also an advisor to Ali Khamenei; Mohammad Bagheri, chief of the Armed Forces General Staff (AFGS); IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan, military aide to the Supreme Leader for the Defense Industries and Armed Forces Logistics; and Gholam Ali Rashid, an IRGC commander, who was appointed by the Supreme Leader as the commander of the Khatam al-Anbia Central Headquarters, the most important military headquarters in Iran.

The Treasury statement reads:

“Today, OFAC designated Ebrahim Raisi, the head of Iran’s Judiciary, who was appointed by the Supreme Leader in March 2019. OFAC designated the former head of Iran’s Judiciary Sadegh Amoli Larijani Larijani in January 2018 pursuant to E.O. 13553 for his administrative oversight over the executions of individuals who were juveniles at the time of their crime and the torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment of prisoners in Iran, including “According to a United Nations report, Iran’s Judiciary sanctioned the execution of seven child offenders last year, and two so far in 2019, despite human rights law prohibitions against the death penalty for anyone under age 18. There are at least 90 child offenders currently on death row in Iran.” amputations.”

IRGC- Terrorism

Terror Plots Against MEK in State Dept. Annual Report

IRGC- Terrorism

Terrorist units of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) are responsible for terrorist attacks.

In its “Country Reports on Terrorism 2018” released on November 1, 2019, the US State Department reported: “Iran remains the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism.”

The annual report of the US State Department says: “The regime has spent nearly one billion dollars per year to support terrorist groups that serve as its proxies and expand its malign influence across the globe,”

Emphasizing the International terrorism of the mullahs, the report says the Iranian regime has funded international terrorist groups such as Hizballah, and Hamas.

The report says: “It also has engaged in its own terrorist plotting around the world, particularly in Europe. In January, German authorities investigated 10 suspected Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps  Qods Force operatives.”

Referring to the Iranian regime’s attempt to bomb the annual gathering of the Iranian opposition, Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI.MEK), in June 2018 attended by Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi and hundreds of international lawmakers and personalities as well as some 100,000 supporters of the Iranian democratic opposition, the State Department’s report adds: “In the summer, authorities in Belgium, France, and Germany thwarted an Iranian plot to bomb a political rally near Paris, France,”

“On June 30, French and Belgian authorities arrested several individuals – including an Iranian official based in Austria – suspected of planning to attack an event organized by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq in Villepinte. In October, France imposed sanctions on two Iranian operatives and the internal directorate of the Iranian intelligence agency (MOIS) in connection with the covert terrorist plot,” the report noted.

German authorities extradited an Iranian diplomat terrorist, Assadollah Assadi, to Belgium on October 9, 2019. Assadi was arrested in Germany pursuant to the foiled plot to bomb the MEK Villepinte rally in France.

The Iranian regime has a long history of terrorist activities across the globe. An Iranian operative was arrested for planning an assassination in Denmark, in October.

Referring to the regime’s attempt to bomb the Persian New Year festival organized at the compound of the main Iranian opposition group Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), the report says that Albania expelled two Iranian officials for plotting terrorist attacks in December.

The US Embassy in Tirana said later: “Iran has exploited its diplomatic presence in Tirana to scheme for the destruction of its political opponents, seeking to answer reasoned arguments w/ the cowardice of hidden detonators. Albania has shown it won’t tolerate Iranian terrorists on its soil.”

Urging the West to expel all Iranian terrorist diplomats, MEK asked the US to designate MOIS as a terrorist organization. MEK also repeatedly urged the EU states to put IRGC and MOIS on their black-lists emphasizing an International front against the Iranian regime’s terrorism.

Albanian Police reveals a terrorist plot agaist MEK

Albania Revels Active Iran Terrorist Cell Against MEK

Albanian Police reveals a terrorist plot agaist MEK

Albanian police reveal details of Iranian regime’s terror plot against MEK-October 23, 2019

Albania’s security institutions discovered an active cell of the Iranian Regime’s terrorist Quds force, Albanian General Police Director Ardi Veliu announced last Wednesday.

The Quds, the extraterritorial section of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), was activated to take action against the main Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), which moved to Albania in 2016 to avoid persecution by the Regime.

Veliu explained that the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) agent Alireza Naghashzadeh, who was pretending to be a former MEK member, was an active member of the Quds Force.

The MEK has repeatedly warned that the MOIS uses agents who claim to be former MEK members to disguise efforts to gather security-sensitive information on the MEK; something reported by the Library of Congress in its 2012 report.

In March 2018, during a celebration to mark the Iranian New Year (Norouz), the Iranian Regime launched a terrorist plot against the MEK, which was thankfully foiled by Albanian authorities. That December, Albania expelled Iran’s ambassador, Gholamhossein Mohammadnia, and another diplomat for “damaging its national security”.

Mohammadnia, who was apparently a high-ranking member of the MOIS, was assigned to the Iranian embassy in Tirana after the MEK members were transferred there in 2016. Before that, he served on Iran’s nuclear-negotiating team in order to secure the sanctions relief under the nuclear deal.

This planned attack on the MEK in Albania came shortly before a plot to bomb the annual Free Iran gathering held in Paris by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and MEK in June 2018. The plan was organized by Vienna-based Iranian “diplomat” Assadollah Assadi, who hired three operatives and provided the explosives. All four were caught by European authorities before the attack could take place.

In October of that year, France said there was no doubt that the Iranian intelligence ministry was behind the bomb plot. It then seized the assets of Tehran’s intelligence services and two Iranian nationals, before expelling an Iranian diplomat.

 

The MEK has repeatedly warned Western countries about the dangers posed by Iran’s embassies in their countries, saying they serve as “terrorist nests,” and urged the closure of the embassies and expulsion of the diplomats.

They even held a press conference earlier this year, which focused on the major roles played by Iranian diplomats in assassination plots targeting opposition members in Europe.  During this conference, the MEK highlighted that a 1997 declaration by the European Union called for the Regime’s intelligence operatives to be expelled from Europe and no visas granted to Iranians associated with Iran’s intelligence and security services.

Albanian Police reveals a terrorist plot against MEK on October 23, 2019

Albanian Police Chief revealed, this Wednesday  23 October 2019, a terrorist plot in detail against the MEK’s headquarters in Tirana planed by the Quds Force.

Police chief Ardi Veliu said the foreign wing of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (Quds Force) operated an “active terrorist cell” targeting Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK group members in Albania.

Albania Daily News reported that the Albanian Police Chief Officer said that the Albanian Police prevented a terrorist attack against Iranian opposition in Albania.

Iranian regime’s Quds Force operative named “Peyman” had organized terrorist agents to launch a series of terrorist acts against the MEK in Europe. Reuters on 20 October reported:

“Albanian police foiled a number of planned attacks last year by Iranian agents against an exiled Iranian opposition group living in Albania, a senior officer said on Wednesday.”

“The Albanian authorities have identified these individuals and thanks to intelligence from informants inside the criminal organizations have prevented the plan (attack) of March 2018 and the eventual planning of attacks by organized crime members … on behalf of Iran,” Reuters added.

Assadollah Assadi, an Iranian diplomat terrorist, was arrested for a foiled bombing plot against the MEK in France on June 2018. He was the Iranian regime embassy’s third secretary in Vienna. He handled a high explosive device to two MOIS agents in Belgium to bomb the June 2018 gathering of Iranians in Paris. Assadi remains in prison in Belgium since he was arrested 16 months ago.

Reuters reported that France said in October 2018 there was no doubt Iran’s intelligence ministry was behind the  June plot to attack the NCRI’s annual rally outside Paris.

Albania expelled the Iranian regime’s ambassador and another top diplomat for “damaging its national security” last year.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran Committee on Security and Counterterrorism on October 24, 2019, stated:

” Whatever the regime’s ploys, as security services in Germany, the Netherlands and other European countries have stated, the MEK and the NCRI are the main targets of the demonization campaign, espionage, and terrorism by mullahs’ Intelligence Ministry and the Revolutionary Guards.”

Ali Safavi, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said:

“It is time that the Iranian regime’s embassies in Europe, including the one in Albania, be shut down. They are not diplomatic centers, but direct and facilitate the regime’s terrorist operations abroad.”

Musa Afshar, from the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI, said yesterday in an interview with the Sky News TV:

“We ask all EU member states and particularly Albania to prosecute all agents of Quds Force in their countries, shut down Iranian regime’s embassies, and expel Iranian agents.”

The MEK on different occasions has stressed that all agents of the MOIS and the Quds Force must be prosecuted and expelled from European soil, the MOIS and the IRGC must be listed by the EU as terrorist organizations, and all Iranian regime’s agents must be expelled.

NBC's fake news about MEK

NBC’s article on October 17, is the latest in a series of pieces that have rehashed stale and universally debunked allegations against the main Iranian opposition MEK

Simple conclusion: the fake news published by DER SPIEGEL in Germany, TV. Channel 4 in Britain and recently NBC News in the US, all in favor of the fascist mullahs, fuel terrorism against Iranian dissidents and particularly the MEK. What revealed by the Albanian Police is just one example.

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.

Iranian terrorism

Do Economic Aids Save the Iranian Regime?

Iranian terrorism

Taken from the Social media on the Iranian regime’s main existential threat, the MEK.

Leashing the mullahs, Europe and the US granted many concessions to the Iranian regime in the past three decades. This “generosity”, sadly, emboldened this regime to expand its terrorism and violation of human rights and also to deal with its deadly economic and most importantly political crises.

An Iranian terrorist, Ghafour Darjazi, had a key role in the assassination of Dr. Abulrahman Ghasemlo, the Secretary-General of Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran in July 1989. He escaped justice; in a suspicious deal, along with other terrorists, when he was extradited to Iran by Austrian officials. Three years later, again, under the alias Amir-Mansour Bozorgian he participated in the assassination of Mohammadreza Naqdi, the representative of the main Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in Italy; he was the field commander of the assassination scene.

Ghafour Darjazi, also known as Amir-Mansour Bozorgian or Mustafa Moddaber, served the Iranian regime in many positions including executive manager of the Iranian National Security Council, head of the Iranian National TV’s security, and head of Parliament’s security.

After the assassination of the representative of NCRI in Switzerland, Dr. Kazem Rajavi, brother of Massoud Rajavi, the leader of the Iranian resistance,  the west did a dirty deal for the release of the terrorists. That same evening, Akhundzadeh and Hadi Najafabadi, along with a number of other terrorists, returned to Iran on a direct Iran Air flight.

Three years later, on November 14, 1992, the German secret services informed France that two Iranian secret agents had crossed the Strasbourg border into France and that the names of the two were Mahmoud Sajjadian and Ali Kamali. The Swiss wanted them in connection with the killing of an Iranian opposition figure. The two men arrived in France with Iranian passports under the names Ahmad Taheri and Mohsen Sharifi Esfahani on Iranian passports. On November 15, 1992, France arrested the two men. In the last days of 1992 (January 1993), a three-member delegation from the regime went from Tehran to Paris, and after a dirty deal on January 8, the two terrorists were taken to Tehran. On December 29, the French Foreign Ministry sent a note to Switzerland that the two Iranians would not be extradited to Switzerland for the sake of French national interests.

Campaign Coordinator for Change in Iran, Struan Stevenson, in an article in United Press reported on the failure of European policy towards the Iranian regime and the terrorist acts of the regime in Europe and wrote:

The main policy of export and import to Iran was via Intex It can, and will, easily lift US sanctions. But that didn’t work. On June 6, a diplomat from the Iranian regime’s embassy in Vienna in Bavaria was arrested on terrorism charges. Assadullah Assadi is said to have delivered over 500 grams of explosives and a detonator to an Iranian couple from Belgium and ordered them to go to Paris and bomb a large gathering organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the MEK. 7,000 people were going to be blown up, including prominent figures such as Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich and Bill Richardson.

Asadi, diplomat terrorist of Iranian regime

All warnings of the MEK about the Iranian regime’s terrorism has turned into bitter reality. If one day the west could turn a blind eye on the mullahs’ terrorism, now it is hard to do so. The Iranian regime has dragged terrorism on the European soil and it is hard to ignore it anymore. The policy of appeasement lost many of its allies and this policy is on the verge of collapse.

Orally, there have been many hollow promises by Europeans; however, on the ground, nothing is tangible for the Iranian regime. Clearly, the balance of power has changed and the Iranian regime does not have the upper hand in any negotiation and cannot take the world hostage by its terrorism anymore.

The Iranian regime did its best to release Asadi, its diplomat- terrorist, and his accomplices, but all its efforts were in vain and they are still in custody; the Belgium prosecutors’ documents are undeniable.

While on the one hand, the policy of appeasement has failed and its days are numbered, and on the other hand, the world would not be blackmailed by the Iranian regime, for the west, betting on a dead horse is not a wise decision.

Welcoming Zarif: Opening the Ground for Terrorism

Amb. Adam Ereli

Ambassador Adam Ereli delivers a speech on the anniversary of the Iranian Revolution, Washington, DC—February 11, 2019

In an article entitled, “Embrace of Iran’s Foreign Minister Creates an Opening for Propaganda and Terrorism” (Town Hall, September 6, 2019), former U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain and the State Department Deputy Spokesperson, Adam Ereli discussed the recent G7 and Europian effort to facilitate U.S.- Iran dialogue.

“The Iranian regime was a major topic of discussion during the G-7 Summit in Biarritz last month. But neither France nor any other European country should be helping the murderous regime to acquire a larger presence on the international stage. Tehran’s support for terrorism goes beyond the Middle East and threatens both Europe and the U.S.,” wrote Amb. Ereli.

Referring to the recent terrorist activities of the Iranian regime, particularly, the bombing plot against the great gathering of the Iranian opposition (NCRI) in Paris last year, Amb. Ereli added,

“In the summer of 2018, two Iranian operatives were stopped in Belgium, as they attempted to carry high-explosives to a rally that had been organized outside Paris. Tens of thousands of Iranian expatriates from throughout the world had gathered there for a conference. Many of the hundreds of international dignitaries were prominent figures in politics, security, and academia from France, the US, and dozens of other countries.”

“The plot was neutralized, as were at least five other incidents stretching from Albania to America. The Paris bomb plot led immediately to the arrest of an Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, who was found to be the mastermind. A French intelligence investigation determined that he had been acting on explicit orders directly from the highest levels of the regime. Moreover, he was using the cover provided by his diplomatic status and Iran’s embassies abroad to disguise the regime’s terrorism.  Germany extradited Assadi to Belgium, where he and three of his agents are now awaiting trial.” Mr. Ereli added

Amb. Ereli argues that Zarif’s invitation to G7 demonstrated the international community’s indifference toward Iranian regime’s terrorism and gave the regime’s globetrotting propagandist an opportunity to put a smiling face on intolerable actions and to whitewash a 40-year history of terrorist financing and human rights violations.

“The French attitude could be an undermining the US imposed sanctions on Zarif and the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)”, he noted.

The former State Department Spokesperson also highlighted the role of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) in exposing the Iranian regime’s terrorism, which, in his words, explains the hostility of Iranian regime towards the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK)

“This has always been the position of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its main constituent group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK), which explains why the Iranian regime is determined to eliminate this group and its members.  In addition to the attempt to blow up the NCRI’s rally outside Paris and attacks against the MEK’s headquarters in Albania last year, the government of Iran executed an estimated 30,000 MEK political prisoners in the summer of 1988. The fact that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei publicly acknowledged the role of the MEK in organizing the anti-regime protests that rocked all parts of Iran in 2018 is a telling admission of the group’s ability to rattle the regime.”

Instead of embracing Zarif, the mouthpiece of the terrorist regime of Iran, the international community must hold him and other terrorist officials of mullahs accountable for their crimes and as Mr. Ereli noted

“If Mr. Zarif must appear at international gatherings, he should be challenged aggressively over his government’s ongoing record of criminal activity. Anything less will encourage Iran to act with increasing impunity, with devastating consequences.”

The Iranian Regime terrorist Assadollah Asadi

Former Diplomat: Regime Threat Cannot Be Ignored

The Iranian Regime terrorist Assadollah Asadi

Assadollah Assadi, the Iranian regime’s diplomat terrorist, that was arrested last year and is now in Belgium prison, for masterminding the failed terrorist attack to bomb MEK’s annual gathering in Paris.

The Iranian regime poses a threat to global security which cannot be ignored by the international security, writes Ambassador Ken Blackwell in a column published on the Townhall website on September 2nd. In his new column, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission argues that policymakers have not factored in the threat posed by the Iranian regime, citing the multiple foiled terrorist attacks on European soil last year as evidence of the international community’s refusal to take serious action despite serious threats.

The 2018 Free Iran Gathering

The annual gathering of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Villepinte, France attracted 100,000 MEK supporters. July 1, 2018

The 2018 Free Iran Gathering

Blackwell cited the 2018 Free Iran gathering as his prime example of the regime’s terrorist activities in Europe. The annual gathering of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Villepinte, France attracted 100,000 Mujahedin-e Khalgh(PMOI/ MEK )supporters, along with hundreds of prominent politicians and dignitaries from around the world.

“It also nearly attracted two aspiring bombers, who were fortunately stopped on their way to the gathering on June 30, 2018,” wrote Blackwell. “Shortly thereafter, a senior Iranian “diplomat” named Assadollah Assadi was also arrested and identified as the mastermind of the plot,” he continued.

“The operation leading to these arrests was a testament to European authorities’ awareness of the persistent threat emanating from Tehran. A subsequent investigation by French intelligence left no doubt about the fact that Assadi and his Iranian-Belgian assets were acting upon orders from the highest ranks of the regime,” Blackwell explained.

 

 

Previous Plots

Blackwell pointed out that the Paris plot was not the first attempt by the regime to target the MEK. Three months prior, regime operatives attempted to attack Ashraf-3, the MEK’s headquarters in Albania. At least four other terrorist plots by the regime were uncovered in 2018.

A Limited Response

Blackwell argued that the EU did not take sufficient action in response to the terrorist attempts in 2018. “The EU only saw fit to impose limited sanctions on the Iranian secret service and a handful of its known agents. But even this gesture was ultimately undermined by a broader European strategy that involves the continuation of conciliatory policies for dealing with the regime,” he wrote.

He also noted that Assadi is not the only regime diplomat working as a terrorist operative, writing: “[Assadi’s] arrest prompted a spokesperson for the Belgian police to affirm that almost all Iranian diplomats play a role in the Iranian secret service.”

Blackwell further stated that Iran’s own officials have acknowledged the link between paramilitary and diplomatic entities within the regime. “In a recent interview with Iranian state media, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi declared that the Foreign Ministry, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security all pursue the same objectives,” he wrote.

Harsher Sanctions

Blackwell emphasized that even the U.S. which has imposed strict sanctions on the Iranian regime should go further. “Comprehensive sanctions on the IRGC were a long time coming, but now they should be extended to also include the entire Ministry of Intelligence and the entire Foreign Ministry, rather than just Mohammad-Javad Zarif, the regime’s foreign minister,” he argued.

“Bombings, assassinations, and hostage-taking are all part of the Iranian regime’s DNA, and no major government institution can be thought of as isolated from the use of terrorism as a form of statecraft. So the only way to fully address the relevant threat is by isolating the regime as a whole, pending a far-reaching change in its behavior or its imminent collapse,” Blackwell continued.

“If the U.S. hasn’t gone far enough toward this goal, then the nations of Europe have even more ground to make up. In the wake of last year’s thwarted terror plots, an appropriate policy would involve dramatically expanding economic sanctions as well as expelling Iranian diplomats. But in the case of France and certain other EU member states, such a strategy cannot realistically be adopted until those nations’ leaders recognize the fact that much of the world is facing persistent danger from the Iranian regime’s undiminished malign activities,” Blackwell concluded.

Zarif, Soleimani: Two Sides of the Same Coin

Zarif and Soleimani

Archive photo- Iranian regime foreign minister Javad Zarif (Right), meeting with the commander of the Qods Force Qassem Soleimani.

In unprecedented remarks, the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told the state-run daily Entekhab on September 1, 2019: “Commander Soleimani and I never felt we have any differences. We have been working together closely for over 20 years,”

The next day, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) issued a statement which said in part:

“… Zarif, while bowing to the criminal commander of the terrorist Qods Force Qassem Soleimani, reiterated that he and his ministry represent nothing other than the ruling theocracy’s terrorist and warmongering policies.”

“During the U.S. attack on Iraq, as Iran’s representative in New York, I spoke, on orders from the country’s senior leadership, to American officials and had the greatest coordination with commander Soleimani. Subsequently, when I became minister, the two of us decided to make sure we meet at least once a week when we were both in Tehran to review the latest developments and undertake the necessary coordination,” Zarif added.

Time and again, the NCRI and its main component, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK)have stated that Zarif is the emissary for a regime, which is the world recorder in executions, is the most active state sponsor of terrorism, is the primary source of crisis and chaos in the region, and is the main patron of Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad in his massacre of the people of Syria. He brags about his companionship with such criminals as Hassan Nasrallah, Imad Mughniyah and Qassem Soleimani.

 “Engaging in trade, maintaining diplomatic ties, and meeting with the regime’s leaders from whichever faction only strengthen and empower the IRGC and the terrorist Qods Force, and provide fuel to the mullahs’ machinery of terror and warmongering,” the NCRI statement concluded.

Zarif’s remarks, as well as decades of experience, confirm that the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, along with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) hold the levers of the regime’s foreign policy. Now, it should be clear, as never before, that there is absolutely no difference between the regime’s factions The Iranian people have recognized this fact as was evident in their chants during 2018 uprising, “Reformers, hardliners, the game is now over.” It is time for Europe to wake up to this reality as well.
