MEK: Iran Regime Trying to Project Strength Amid Economic Disaster

Iranian’s protest gatherings and the activities of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) push mullahs into a deadly cliff.  The Iranian Regime is desperate to project strength in the face of the US’s “maximum pressure” campaign and rising international isolation, but the reality is that the mullahs have never been as vulnerable as they are now, according to Dr. Ali Safavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

In a piece for Issues & Insights on October 24, Safavi wrote: “An important indicator of its sustained troubles is the economy. Severely mismanaged for decades and devastated by endemic corruption, the economy is in complete shambles. In just a few short months since the full adoption of maximum pressure, the economic situation has deteriorated even more drastically. Indeed, the International Monetary Fund said that Iran’s economy will shrink by 9.5 percent this year, more than what was projected previously. So, the continuation of this policy will certainly produce enormous challenges to the regime’s survival.”

He cited that Iranian condensate, an ultra-light and expensive oil, was a prime example of how the US campaign had affected Iranian exports. In 2017, the regime exported over 17 million tons of condensate for $7 billion. This dropped by 45% in 2018 and to near zero in 2019, according to a spokesman for the Iranian Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical Products Exporters’ Association.

He then moved onto the topic of inflation, saying that the regime’s own statistics put the rate of inflation in the period September 2018 and September 2019 as 42.7%, with official statistics showing that the rate of inflation for imported products is close to 150%. This means that the Iranian people’s purchasing power has declined dramatically in just a few short months.

The truth is that the Iranian economy is heading for collapse because unaccountable and corrupt institutions, such as the Office of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), control the majority of economic activity. The decline in Iranian economic activity is increasing by the day because of corruption, embezzlement, inflation, structural flaws, and declining domestic production.

Most state revenues and expenses are stolen by Khamenei and the IRGC to line their own pockets or conduct warfare in the Middle East. This devastation has caused the national currency to drop by 50% in under a year, while the central bank prints more money to address short term demands, which increases inflation. Meanwhile, domestic production has plummeted, which increases unemployment.

Iranian people and the MEK, have a long history of resistance against the religious dictatorship in Iran. In a new round, during the past two years, the Iranian people have been taken to streets to demand regime change. MEK’s resistance units have accelerated their activities in recent months. The economic situation could send the Iranian regime over the edge, something that the regime fears. Mullahs are right to fear it because it will happen sooner or later.

Money Laundering by the Iranian regime

MEK: Iranian Regime Cannot Comply With International Treaties

Money Laundering by the Iranian regime

FATF asked the Iranian regime to fully pass the bill on money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism

One of the most disputed issues in Iran is passing the bill related to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in the Iranian regime’s parliament.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), based in Paris, is a global standard-setting body for anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT), to protect the international financial system from money laundering and financing of terrorism (ML/FT) risks.

Postponing its ultimatum to the Iranian regime on last Friday, FATF asked the Iranian regime to fully pass the bill on money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism. Simultaneously, this international body on June 2019 in a public statement, decided to call upon its members and urge all jurisdictions to introduce enhanced relevant reporting mechanisms or systematic reporting of financial transactions; and require increased external audit requirements for financial groups with respect to any of their branches and subsidiaries located in Iran.

The bills to ratify the Palermo and Terrorist Financing Conventions have passed the regime’s Parliament, but are not yet in force.

The FATF in its statement stressed that: “If before February 2020, Iran does not enact the Palermo and Terrorist Financing Conventions in line with the FATF Standards, then the FATF will fully lift the suspension of counter-measures and call on its members and urge all jurisdictions to apply effective counter-measures”.

Hassan Rouhani, the president of the mullahs, tried to pass the FATF in the regime’s parliament. However, the Guardian Council and Expediency Discernment Council prevented him.

Convincing the parliament, Rouhani sent Zarif, the Foreign Minister, to the parliament. In his speech in the parliament, he accused the opponents of money laundering and said: “money laundering is a reality in our country, many take advantage of money laundering. I don’t want to accuse a specific person, but where there are thousands of dollars’ worth of money laundering, for sure they can afford to pay tens of thousands of dollars for propaganda against passing the bill.”

In order to be removed from the blacklist of FATF, after the JCPOA, the Iranian regime accepted to comply with the international laws protecting the international financial system from money laundering and financing of terrorism.

However, the firm reality in Iran is that the extra-territorial activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and sponsoring terrorist proxy forces in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, and elsewhere, prevent the Iranian regime joining the international treaties including FATF. Following the listing of the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization by the US, this regime cannot accept any restrictions on financing its terrorist proxy forces and money laundering by the IRGC.

After revelations on their nuclear program by the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) deprived the mullahs of acquiring nuclear weapons, on which the mullahs counted for survival, the Iranian regime accelerated its warmongering policies to keep its balance. Accepting FATF would lead to leashing the regime in its export of terrorism, so it is not acceptable to them.

The Iranian regime cannot and will not compel with the international laws and as the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, act like a normal country.

The MEK has constantly urged the West to stop appeasing the despotic mullahs in Iran. Based on four decades of experience, the MEK emphasized that the only right policy toward this regime is a firm one excluding any negotiations. This experience comes from forty years of resistance by the MEK against this barbarian regime.

It is time for the west to stand on the right side of the history and recognize the right of resistance against the dictatorial regime ruling Iran and also recognize the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the MEK as its core force, as a reliable alternative to this regime.

Rally in NY- Second Day

MEK-Iran:Time Magazine is wrong about Iran Regime

Rally in NY- Second Day

Supporters of the Iranian opposition group PMOI-MEK holding a “No to Rouhani” rally in New York, objecting Rouhani’s presence at the United Nations

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.

MEK: New Wave of Protests in Iran

Protests of the workers as well as other sectors of the society in Iran raised dramatically in the recent one and a half years. The protests have always been supported by the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/ MEK).

Figures released by the MEK on the protest actions from 21 June to 21 July show a comparative increase compared to the first three months of the year, based on the Iranian calendar. During this period of time, there have been at least 267 protests in seventy- eight cities, villages, and industrial- commercial districts in Iran.

The MEK’s report shows that on average, there have been 9 protests by workers, educators including teachers, pensioners, people affected by recent floods, and … per day in Iran. This MEK report also indicates that there have been one hundred and thirty protests by workers in forty-one cities due to unpaid salaries, lack of official employing, lack of insurance, the firing of workers, and low payment.

MEK’s social network covered the news of protests of workers, farmers, teachers, pensioners, and nurses in Iran. The MEK social network tries to be the voice of voiceless in Iran. The MEK supporters abroad also tirelessly echoed the voice of the suppressed people of Iran in the past four decades.

The MEK has always been a source of inspiration amongst Iranian people particularly the youth and the women.

The Secretary of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on 20 October 2019 stated:

“On Sunday, October 20, 2019, workers at Azarab factory in the city of Arak (central Iran) continued their demonstrations for the 12th day running despite repeated threats and suppressive measures by the regime. Protesting about the lack of response to their just demands, the enraged workers blocked the Tehran-Ahvaz railway. The suppressive forces attacked the protesting workers, fired teargas to disperse them and arrested a number of the workers.”

The NCRI added:

“Since the start of the new round of protests by Azarab workers a number of them have been summoned and threatened by the intelligence and security agencies.”

The President-elect of the NCRI hailed the courageous and resilient workers of Azarab and urged the people of Arak, especially the defiant youths, to rise in support of the protesting workers.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi urged the International Labor Organization, labor syndicates, and unions as well as all advocates of workers’ rights to condemn the anti-labor policies of the mullahs’ regime and support the rights of Iranian workers.

MEK : Consequences of Mullahs’ Rule, Poverty and Misery

MEK : Consequences of Mullahs’ rule: Poverty and misery

After four decades of the ruling, unemployment, corruption, embezzlement and many other social disasters have been the souvenirs of the mullahs for the Iranian people. Structural economic crisis, a staggering rate of military and security expenses, plundering of the population, water-shortage, destruction of the environment and …. have made a black hole of poverty, homelessness, and misery for the Iranian people. The minimum wage is at least less than one-fourth of the poverty line. Minimum needs, even a loaf of bread, are no longer on the people’s table.

In the first place, dictators annihilate democracy so that they can plunder the people and destroy the economy. This is the roadmap chosen by the religious dictatorial regime in Iran since its formation.

On 16 April 2019, Rezaie, Iranian MP, acknowledged in the regime’s parliament that people are furious about discrimination, injustice and more lies. He added that how do you expect teachers to educate our children while they are paid five to seven dollars a day?  He compared the condition of workers with slaves.

Controlling the situation, the mullahs, as usual, resort to intimidation, imprisonment, torture, and long term sentences. Arresting labor activists, teachers, defiant youth, and … are the tools that mullahs use to curb opposition movements. In response to this catastrophic situation, the people have no other option but to resist a decent and better life. Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) resistance units are mobilizing people to restore their rights.

IRGC Commander, Hussein Rahimi, acknowledged that from March 2018 to January 2019, during nine months, there have been 923 protest gatherings just in the capital, Tehran. Another IRGC commander from the province of Khuzestan also admitted there had been 650 protests by workers in this period of time in this Southern province.

Last year the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and also the MEK’s networks inside Iran covered the news of protest movements, daily gatherings, and strikes of workers, farmers, particularly in Isfahan, teachers, pensioners, nurses, and looted people by credit firms affiliated to IRGC. MEK reported that in the one month period of 22 June to 22 July 2019there had been 267 protests in different cities, villages, and industrial districts in Iran; that is nine protests a day. MEK resistance units played a key role to form and direct those growing protests.

 

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of NCRI, said in this regard:

“Expand the resistance units in all schools and universities. Turn every school into a resistance unit, every college into a resistance unit, and every Iranian city into a resistance city. Freedom and victory are in your hands!”

Iranian Regeme dead end road

MEK pushes the mullahs towards a deadly cliff

Confronting the unrest in Iran, Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of religious fascism finds no solution but accelerating internal suppression and external terrorism. Adopting Ebrahim Raissi, the key figure in the 1988 prison massacre, in which 30,000 Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) members and supporters were executed in just a few months, as the head of the Judiciary shows he has no other option to control the explosive situation in Iran but appointing henchmen as high-ranking officials.

However, the growing protests during recent months in Iran led by the MEK indicate repression does not work for mullahs as it did before. The protests in Iran prove that the rulers cannot dictate their demands and people do not accept this miserable situation any longer. Expanding the popular movements and protests, and also the growing war between different factions inside the regime, both reflect the reality of Iranian society.

This leads the society to stand up and protest against poverty and repression. Recent uprising of people in the Southwest city of Lordegan is just an example.

Saturday, October 5, 2019, thousands of residents in Lordegan demonstrated against the mullahs’ regime in support of the residents of Chenar Mahmoudi village in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province. Angry youths set ablaze the office of the representative of the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Lordegan Governor’s Office as well as several other regime’s centers.

The demonstration began outside the Governor’s Office and spread to the Health Department’s local office. The security forces attacked the protesters at both locations. The protesters defended themselves by throwing rocks. The suppressive forces fired live rounds and tear gas into the crowd to disperse them, wounding a number of demonstrators.

Despite the unprecedented suppression, the angry workers in two industrial facilities, Hepco and Arak Azarab, are still continuing their protests against the regime.

Everything indicates circumstances are changing in Iran with freedom and prosperity on the horizon.

Pointing to the protests of people in Lordegan, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said:

“With their chants of death to the dictator and attacking the office of the representative of the Iranian Regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, they targeted the clerical establishment as the main cause of all the atrocities perpetrated against the Iranian people,”

On the current situation she emphasized:

“This corrupt and criminal regime has squandered Iran’s national wealth by pursuing nuclear and missile projects and engaging in foreign warmongering, which has destroyed all aspects of life for the people of Iran, including health and well-being.”

After four decades of suppression, the MEK resistance units are active more than ever, pushing the mullahs towards a deadly cliff. Victory is within reach. It is time for the international community to recognize the Iranian Resistance, the NCRI and the MEK.

Protest of HEPCO's workers

Iranian Regime Faces Ever Growing Workers Protest

Protest of HEPCO's workers

The mullahs’ regime is cornered by many problems in Iran. Some are scarier than others for the theocratic regime. Workers’ protests and strikes areas such. In the most recent labor unrest in Iran’s industrial heartland, Arak, in central Iran, Azarab Company workers protest for the familiar demands; unpaid wages and the return of the company to the public sector. The mullahs’ regime’s scheme in the last two decades against the working class has been a suppressive plan of forced privatization of oldest industries such as Hepco and Azarab in Iran. But what is even more cynical is that the clerical regime has tried to kill two birds with one stone. It wants to escape the responsibilities of the government toward Iran’s working community such as guaranteed wages and insurance and aims at breaking up the oldest labor unions formed in such industries for more than 40 years in Iran.

In Azarab, for example, private management is downsizing the personnel. What the mullahs’ regime has done is putting a multimillion-dollar company on sale for a fraction of its real market value. The bid usually goes to former Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commanders or their families. By doing so the regime has two goals; one is gradually killing the company and secondly prevent the labor unions from taking shape. In the case of Azarab and Hepco they share the same fate. The Iranian regime has followed the same road)map for both industrial companies. The workers’ major demand aside from back pays is preventing the gradual closure of the company.

Azarab workers protested for three days outside the company’s plant in Arak. The anti-riot units of the IRGC were called in to turn the protesters away. But they stood their grounds and pushed them back.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the brave workers of Azarab for not abandoning their protests despite the suppressive measures and threats by the mullahs’ regime. She said that the ruling religious fascism in Iran responds to the enraged citizens only with tear gas, beatings, arrests, medieval trials, and long prison terms. But oppression and injustice will crumble in the face of the heroic workers’ resolve.

The Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) also welcomed the Azarab’s workers for their bravery in standing up for their rights.

Background:

On October 8, 2019, for the third consecutive day, the protest gathering of Azarab’s workers continued. On Sunday, October 6, 2019, workers of Azarab Company had organized a gathering on the Tehran-Arak highway to protest the sale of the company and to demand their unpaid wages. They closed the main square at the city’s entrance.

A day before, on October 7, the workers had gathered and marched outside the company. The Revolutionary Guards’ anti-riot units attacked them by firing tear gas into the crowd. They blocked the demonstrators from entering the city fearing that the youths might join the protesting workers.

Despite yesterday’s brutal attacks, the workers gathered outside the company’s building again. The suppressive forces blocked the demonstrators from reaching San’at Square and entering the city.

gas subsides

Eliminating Gas Subsidies: a Noose Around the Mullahs’ Neck

gas subsides

increases the gas price, it runs a serious risk of public protests for Rouhani’s weak government.

The mullahs’ regime is bankrupt. Oil export, its main sources of income has dried up with crushing sanctions. With no hope for sanction reliefs especially after Hassan Rouhani’s failed trip to the UN General Assembly, the regime has counted on emptying the people’s pockets. To do so it is quietly planning eliminating gas subsidies. The Iranian regime tested the waters last year for increasing gas prices.  It backed off. Public anger and frustration would be predictable, and it was enough to scare off the mullahs. Increasing gas prices is even more dangers for the regime than that of bread. Gas is the bloodline for Iran’s failing economy. All goods and services are delivered on wheels in Iran and every vehicle needs juice to run. It is as simple as that.

If Rouhani’s weak government increases the gas price, it runs a serious risk of public protests. The Iranian regime’s Majlis (parliament) called for a closed session to discuss eliminating gas subsidies. Ironically, Brigadier General Ali Fadavi, deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) was invited for consultation. In a normal government, for discussing such issues the energy or oil minister would be called in not a military commander. But nothing is normal in the mullahs’ corrupt regime. Increasing gas prices can inflame the already volatile Iranian society. Calculating the risks of such price hikes are not that difficult since Iran is witnessing everyday protests. Adding extreme economic hardship and salaries that are no match for unbridled inflation are recipes for disaster. An important factor that they cannot ignore and always take into account when weighing the cost and benefits of such decisions is the role the Iranian Resistance would play in all of it. Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) has been an existential threat to mullahs’ regime since day one. Ali Khamenei and his cronies use every opportunity to remind each other of the MEK’s threat. The protests in Lordegan was the latest case.

Ali Mohammad-Akbari IRGC commander for Qmar-Banihasheim Brigade assigned to the region blamed the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) for Lordegan’s unrest yesterday.

Mohammad-Akbari told the citizens that MEK was responsible for what had happened. He said:

“Those who had covered their faces with scarfs and directed the people in Lordegan were not locals and had come from elsewhere.”

Increasing gas prices have become the latest security threat for the mullahs’ shaky regime.

Dr. Firouz Daneshgari,

Dr. Firouz Daneshgari: Come together under the Maryam Rajavi’s ten-point plan for a free Iran

Dr. Firouz Daneshgari,

Dr. Firouz Daneshgari, the founder of MDAID, delivered a speech in a conference in NY discussing the future of Iran

Dr. Firouz Daneshgari, the founder of MDAID, delivered a speech in a conference in NY discussing the future of Iran. Below is an excerpt of his speech:


We are bounded by Iranian heritage and we have a shared responsibility toward the people of Iran to help free Iran, move the country toward a republic form of government and keeping the entire country united and ensure its territory reserved as it is today.

I’m a surgeon-scientist and a professor, but I’m also a former political prisoner. My eyes and my mind and my body are witnessed how this regime treats political prisoners. I have the scars of torture on my body that I have carried over thirty years. Especially those political prisoners who are affiliated with the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), I know because as a physician I risked my life to treat them, and to defend them; and some of their members died on my laps. While I treated their gunshot wounds inflected by IRGC, I have seen many many occasions of who this regime is that I cannot describe in simple words.

Today I represent an International Medical Foundation named MDAID which focuses on supporting victims of torture and political prisoners who are forced to flee their homeland as refugees and settled in North American and Europe.

As the founder and chairman of this foundation, I’ve brought my own experience as a political prisoner to this foundation and partner with many former political prisoners who are now empowered medical professionals and paying it forward to other refugees in Europe and elsewhere. I share all those experiences with my colleagues to demonstrate an envision how Iran can recover positively after the fall of this regime to the point of helping other nations as well. For years the world community believes this regime can change from within; the deceitful promise of so-called moderates and reformists has cost thousands of innocent lives in Iran and the entire region in the Middle East. The economic corruption and embezzlement by the regime officials have led to a health crisis for the people of Iran.

Recently research came across my desk that a person who had interviewed over three thousand people who had sold their kidneys to survive and he titled his research as the cost of kidney in Iran is less than three ounces of pistachios in some of the cities.

The other incompetence and incapable mullahs blame the medical crises on the sanctions and that is not farther than truth than this. And this is yet part of ongoing deception and propaganda by this regime. Let us be very clear that the shortage of medicine has nothing to do with the sanctions. It has all to do with this criminal mafia regime of mullahs and IRGC that has brought such crises on people of Iran.

They ship the medication, the medical supplies, and the resources that belong to Iranian people to Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. As we watched the protests in Iran, people are shouting one less embezzlement, our problem can be solved. This regime is riddle with its scandals, fraud, and embezzlement from the top of the house, starting with Khamenei himself and his office to the bottom feeders of IRGC and Basijis. They reaping off Iranian people from their resources. Iran’s health sector is hurting because of this regime, not because of the sanctions. I have firsthand information from my colleagues in Iran. The nation of Iran is under attack by this regime and has been over the past forty years every single day. We cannot and should not allow this crazy regime to stop us from resolve in chaining and working together. The maximum pressure is working. We don’t see any protest about the sanctions from Iranian people, but we see is more protests by all the sectors of society including nurses, medical professionals against the regime, because the regime belongs to the dust bin of history. I have no doubt the brave men and women of Iran will bring this regime down along with the organized resistance movement and units of MEK.

We need one day of voting in Iran to show this regime who the Iranian people love. We can and must come together united in support regime change in Iran by the Iranian people. We can and we must raise above the propaganda and fake news that this regime unleashes on us. Iran is the previous land and is one of the most unique countries in the Middle East that has such rich ethnical and religious diversity. For all the major social movement starting with the constitutional movement back about 110 years ago from my land from Azarbayjan, I’m one of descendant of Sattar Khan, to uprising of 1979 revolution to the protest of the 1980s and 1999 and 2009 and kind movement since 2017, we have shown the world that we can come together in rejection of this clerical regime just as people rejected dictatorship of Shah. We have come together at Azaries, Kurds, Arabs, Baluchis, Persians, and other ethnic groups and we are here to be united against the regime. No separation is between us; the only enemy is the regime. So, let’s unit together in exile to bring our motherland, giving her a helping hand and come together under the ten-point plan proposed by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi for a free Iran. It is truly the bases for most modern Iran. Let’s come together and rebuild our homeland with the best and brightest. But first, we must focus on making regime change in Iran a reality Starting today.

High inflation in Iran

MEK: A Dead End for Clerical Regime

High inflation in Iran

High inflation in the mullahs’ regime has lead to a deep crisis

Iran is in a deep crisis. The mullahs’ regime no longer is able to stop the downward spiral. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is not in control and has no clue in solving the overwhelming problems. The theocratic regime is living in browed time.

The Iranian regime president, Hassan Rouhani is not in better shape and returned home from his controversial trip to UN General Assembly empty-handed. Accelerating course of events in the country point to a dark future for the clerical regime. The country is boiling in dissent and everyday citizens turn up outside government buildings following their demands.

Inflations running at a record high in Iran

Inflations are running at a record high and far exceeding the International Monetary Fund’s estimates for this year. The Iranian Regime’s Statistical Center has announced on September 24 that the rate of inflation in Iran has reached 42.7 percent during the 12 months ending on August 23. This is nearly 3 percent higher than the IMF forecast in April. All figures projected by the Iranian regime must be taken with a grain of salt since most are manipulated for internal consumption.

Nevertheless, they speak volumes when it comes to project the public’s discontent with the regime. Teachers, workers, farmers, truckers, merchants, inverters with heavy losses for saving their money in the banks run by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) protest on different occasions.

MEK Network: At Least 177 Protests in Iran During August

It is for the first time in the mullahs’ regime history that it has hit the absolute rock bottom. None of its factions will win any popularity contest even among their strongholds.

None of the regime’s factions will be around if a democratic election

Saeed Hajarian, a well-known regime strategist and one of the former architects of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) told the state-run Sazandegi in August:” If there would be such time that the glass ceiling is lifted, like democratic countries and a fair election is held, then, there will no longer be a “reformist or a conservative camp left in Iran.” What he simply meant is that none of the regime’s factions will be around anymore if there will be a democratic election.

Will the regime be able to last until the U.S. Presidential election? Something the mullahs have pinned their hopes on. Is it possible to stop the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) Resistance Units from expanding? Is regime capable to turn the clock back and stop the explosive state of the society?

Ahamd Alam-alhoda, regime’s Friday Prayer leader in Mashhad, and one of Khamenei’s close confidants answers the questions. He said on December 28, 2018: “Sedition of 2009 is behind us what concerns me is new sedition for 2019. The enemy is planning for it. Economic problems and social unrest are the recipes for disaster. These are the means by which they attack the leadership.”

What really is happening under the skin of Iranian society is plain and simple. The people cannot take it anymore and the mullahs’ no longer have the ability to completely suppress the citizens.

Social unrest plus high inflation and the mullahs’ regime failure in providing absolute necessities of daily life for people has brought it to its knees. The MEK’s Resistance Units and Resistance Councils activities in Iran have opened a window of hope and an opportunity for restless people fed-up with the theoretic regime. The final blow will be delivered with these two forces combined in Iran; the people with support from MEK.
