Missiles Attack on Aramco

Iranian regime planned Saudi attacks long before it happened

Missiles Attack on Aramco

On September 13, 2019, the Saudi Aramco complex was targeted with dozens of missiles coming from Iran’s IRGC.

The attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities was not spontaneous rather it was a strategic and carefully planned decision in the highest echelons of the mullahs’ regime. Now that the dust has somewhat settled, looking back at the attack, the military operation does not fit the Houthis’ description. No doubt Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) fingerprints are all over it.

Hassan Rouhani made it clear in his cabinet meeting on Wednesday that the regime was behind the attack on Aramco oil facilities. He said:

“They attacked an industrial site to warn you (the U.S., Arabic, and European countries) and teach you a lesson.”

Iran Attacks Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia

Kazem Anbarlooi, an Iranian regime’s strategist with close ties to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei published an article on May 6th

“About Battle Arrangements” in Resalat Daily, a conservative paper giving an advance preview of the upcoming attack on Saudi Arabia. He is a top-notch ideologue in Khamenei corner. Ambarlooi writes: “The key to the Strait of Hormuz and Bab-almandab is in the hands of …the Iranian nation and government.”

“Saudi Arabia and the UAE oil and those who are associated with American conspiracies cannot always be safe. Missile power, drones and … are not the children’s toys and decorative items. If the Americans have no appetite for the fight, there is enough motivation to fight on the other side.” Ambarlooi refers to the regime being ready to fight.

Ambarlooi then threatens the U.S. and adds: “The Americans are better off giving up on their adventures and cut their economic losses and that of the world’s.”

On August 21, Reuters news agency quoted Hassan Rouhani as saying:

“World powers know that in the case that oil is completely sanctioned and Iran’s oil exports are brought down to zero, international waterways can’t have the same security as before.”

Rouhani also added: “So unilateral pressure against Iran can’t be to their advantage and won’t guarantee their security in the region and the world.

In a speech at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Javad Zarif, the clerical regime’s Foreign Minister appeared to echo Rouhani’s tone.

He said: “Mutual unpredictability will lead to chaos. President Trump cannot expect to be unpredictable and expect others to be predictable. Unpredictability will lead to mutual unpredictability and unpredictability is chaotic.”

Reiterating Iran’s chilly response to the security mission, Iranian Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), said no one can secure the {Persian} Gulf other than Iran and countries of the region,” according to the semi-official Fars news agency.

Soon after the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields and refinery, fingers were pointed at the mullahs’ regime for being behind them. Although IRGC’s proxies in Yemen rushed to claim responsibly hardly anyone took them seriously.

Khamenei gambled the fate of his entire regime by the attacks. He has very limited options at this point. According to his own financial advisers, Iran is a bankrupt state. Not only his coffer does not cover the daily affairs of the country but he has to carry the load of financing his proxies throughout the Middle East.

 What is the logic behind taking such a high risk?

Khamenei gambled his entire regime by taking the risk of losing everything. He is precisely in that situation.

But he was not wrong in counting on those in the West that are still willing to turn a blind eye on his belligerence in the region.

What is the right approach?

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) stated that the attack on a neighboring country’s oil facilities is a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting pressure and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, she noted, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Mrs. Rajavi then offered a way out in which the Iranian people and their neighbors are the main beneficiaries. She suggested in her statement:

  • Previous United Nations Security Council resolutions on the mullahs’ nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment must be reinstated.
  • Eviction of the regime, its Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.
  • The European Union must place Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence on the terrorist watch list.
  • The UN Security Council must refer to the clerical regime’s dossier on human rights abuses and atrocities, especially the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mainly MEK member and supporters, to an international court.
  • The world community must recognize the right of the Iranian People’s Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy and to attain freedom.

A final word

The Iranian regime will no doubt fall. It is only a matter of time. Iran is boiling in dissent. Resistance Units of the Mujahedin-e Khalq/ People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) riding on the tides of the people’s legitimate wrath against the regime will turn the final page in the mullahs’ regime book.

Human Rights Experts Criticize Failure to Investigate 1988 Massacre at U.N. Conference

Human Rights Experts at 1988 Massacre at U.N. Conference

The panel of Human Rights Experts Criticize UN’s Failure to Investigate 1988 Massacre during a Conference held in Geneva Headquarters of the United Nations-September 20, 2019

During two conferences, International human rights experts called for an investigation into the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses at a conference at the United Nations headquarters on Friday. The wide-ranging panels of experts asked specifically for those responsible for the 1988 Massacre to be held accountable for their crimes against humanity.

fatwa issued by regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini

In the summer of 1988, more than 30,000 political prisoners, most of whom were mujahedin-Khalq (PMOI/ MEK) members, were executed based on a fatwa issued by Ruhollah Khomeini, the then regime Supreme Leader, and were buried in mass graves.

Why an Investigation Is Imperative

During the first panel, international human rights lawyer Kirsty Brimelow, QC addressed the audience on why she thinks an investigation into the 1988 massacre is imperative. She asked:

“Why should there now be a tribunal on the crime against humanity committed in 1988? First, because lawyers have examined evidence and know beyond doubt that a crime was committed. If Iran disputes that, we have a process for that.”

Optimism about the Future

Swiss MP Laurence Fellman Rielle expressed optimism that the campaign to hold the regime responsible for the 1988 Massacre is gaining traction.

“We are witnessing progress in seeing the perpetrators of this crime being brought before a court. Since launching the Campaign for Justice for the Victims of the 1988 Massacre, many of the perpetrators have been exposed and the crime has been documented,” he said.

 

 

 

 

Conference on human rights situation in Iran-Geneva, September 2019

In a conference organized by the Non-violent Radical Party, held at the Geneva Offices of the United Nations, the situation of human rights in Iran was discussed. Tahar Boumedra, former UNAMI chief, former UN expert, Alfred-Maurice de Zayas, and Giulio Terzi, former Foreign Minister of Italy were among the distinguished speakers. September 20, 2019

Human Rights Condition in Iran – Conference Held in the UN Headquarters in Geneva

During the second panel of experts, which was organized by the Non-violent Radical Party, Alfred-Maurice de Zayas, the former U.N. expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order, also touched on the same subject, the 1988 massacre in Iran and explained:

” the full scope of the regime’s crimes and the failure of the U.N. to investigate. 30,000 human beings are only the tip of the iceberg. 120,000 of the MEK members have been killed. Back then Maurice Copithorne dropped the issue of the massacres because he thought it had already been dealt with by his predecessors,” he said.

“The High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Human Rights Council must investigate this crime against humanity. The Special Rapporteur on truth and justice, as well as the rapporteur on torture and arbitrary detention, must also look into this. This is a matter for the Human Rights Council and the UPR,” de Zayas added.

Former Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi was the guest speaker at the second conference, who also focused his speech on the 1988 massacre:

“Yesterday, the European Parliament condemned the Iranian regime’s human rights violations,” he said in reference to the cross-party early day motion used on Thursday. The heart and voice of Europe are expressed by human rights. Human rights must be a priority between EU institutions and the outside world. The EU has a fundamental role to promote freedom, rule of law, and protect freedoms,” he said.

“The [UN] Human Rights Council must discuss this. When we look at the geopolitical situation in the Gulf, there is no doubt that we must focus much more on human rights when we negotiate with Iran. Human rights and fundamental freedoms must come back to the center of this playing field,” he added.

Witnesses to the 1988 Massacre

Three women testified as witnesses to the regime’s extrajudicial executions and human rights abuses. They all suffered inhumane treatment in the regime’s prisons and lost family members to the 1988 Massacre and the regime’s extrajudicial executions.

One of the survivors, former political prisoner Massoumeh Joushaghani, said:

“I was a victim of the regime’s human rights violations. I want to know what the UN has done. This crime has been buried under the rug for 30 years. I am the voice of all my friends who were executed in 1988.

I want the UN to bring the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre, who are serving in senior positions in the Iranian government, to justice. The suffering of the families of victims continues.”

 

Amnesty International has been a leading voice in the campaign to expose what it has called a crime against humanity. Amnesty has emphasized that if the perpetrators of the 1988 Massacre are not made to account for their crimes before an international tribunal, more crimes and massacres will take place.

Honoring International Peace Day

international_day_of_peace

International Peace Day

21st September, recognized as International Peace Day by the United Nations. International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems and to celebrate and reinforce the achievements of humanity. The International Days also serve as an indicator of the interest that a given subject attracts in each part of the world. Peace is a concept of societal friendship and harmony in the absence of hostility and violence. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or heterogeneous groups.

The most fatal threat to global peace

Humankind has suffered wars and violence for a long time and historically, peace has been its desire from the beginning. So many lives have perished during non-sense wars and conflicts. Nowadays, despite scattering wars here and there, terrorism is the main threat to global peace.

The Iranian regime is known as the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the modern world. It has a long record of terrorism in the past four decades since its formation in 1979. Bombing the US basis in Lebanon, in Saudi Arabia, explosions in Paris and elsewhere are just a few pages of this horror book. Now, many countries suffer Iranian regime terrorism including Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Afghanistan.

Along with suppression inside the country, terrorism and warmongering policy have been the main factors for its survival. It is worth mentioning that Iranian people in particular and the regional states, as well as the glob, have suffered its terrorism.

What is to be done?

As Secretary-General António Guterres sated

“This is the battle of our lives and a race against time. We can win — and we must.”

There is no doubt that appeasing and compromising terrorists are not the solution, it has been proven times and again. For forty years, the Western Powers sought a moderate mullah; however, the more they sought, the less they found.

The recent missile and drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry by the terrorist regime of Iran once again showed that this regime is the source of terrorism and instability in the region and the world. The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, called the attack “Act of War”.

Forty years of experience has proven that the only solution to terrorism is standing firm against the tyranny of terrorists. President-elect of National Council of Resistance, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, in a response to the terrorist act of attacking Aramco oil facility in Saudi said that attack on a neighboring country’s oil installations was a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting power and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added that inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Paying tribute to the soles fallen for restoring peace in Iran, MEK members and all freedom-loving Iranians, in the anniversary of International Peace Day, we reiterate Madam Rajavi‘s remark that said: “I call on the people of the world to support the Iranian people’s resistance and uprising to overthrow despotism, religious discrimination, and a regime which is the central banker of terrorism and the enemy of peace and freedom in the region and the world.”

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

Iran is behind attacks on Saudi oil facilities

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil refinery was attacked on Saturday, September 13, and more signs indicate Iran’s role

After weeks of making no comments on the most urgent matters of the nation, Khamenei broke his silence and said that there will be no talks with the US unless it repents. The Iranian regime’s leader poured cold water on European relentless efforts to set the stage for a possible meeting between the US President and Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of UN General Assembly. He said: “Some Europeans [counties] are in the middle of … insisting on having a meeting with the President of the United States, [they] say all your problems will be solved to prove that maximum pressure is a successful policy. On the contrary, we must prove that the policy of maximum pressure is not worth an iota.”  Khamenei’s comments came a day after President Trump said that news of possible talks between him and Rouhani was “fake news.”

Rouhani Should Be Expelled from U.N. General Assembly and Security Council Meetings

From the first minutes after the heavy attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields and refinery, fingers pointed at the mullahs’ regime for being behind the attacks. Although his proxies in Yemen rushed to claim responsibly hardly anyone took them seriously.

Khamenei gambled his entire regime by the attacks. He has very limited options at this point. According to his own fanatical experts, Iran is a bankrupt state. Not only his coffer does not cover the daily affairs of the state but he has to carry the load of financing his proxies throughout the Middle East.

Ahmad Zidabadi, a government official points out that this campaign and its promotion are essentially for domestic consumption. “Promoting such a policy is, for the most part, domestic consumption and mainly inspires forces that are sometimes worried about their future,” he wrote. “Attacks on Saudi oil facilities while the US points fingers at Iran, in this case, illustrates the overwhelming security and stability risks in the Gulf region,” Zaidabadi warns. Even now, those factions in the country which have been convinced that the war in the Persian Gulf will not happen are convinced that conflict is possible. ”

Another Iranian regime’s expert, Ali Bigdeli, wrote in the government-run Arman daily that although the regime’s officials did not accept responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, they warned of the dangerous consequences of such actions. Bigdeli said that the US has already concluded:” Based on the satellite images obtained, we may have new information that Iran was behind it, using bases near the Persian Gulf. “Although we may think the attack was a demonstration of Houthis’ power, it could have unfortunate consequences because it threatens the security of the world.”

What is the logic behind taking such high risk?

No one in its right mind would take such a high risk of being wiped off the map unless his back is against the wall. Khamenei is precisely in that situation.

Although the Iranian regime gambled everything by attacking Saudi oil fields and the world’s largest refinery but it is not entirely wrong in counting on those in the West that are still willing to turn a blind eye on its belligerence in the region.

What is the right approach?

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) stated that the attack on a neighboring country’s oil installations was a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting power and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.

She added that inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Mrs. Rajavi then offered a way out in which the Iranian people and their neighbors are the main beneficiaries. She suggested in her statement:

  • Previous United Nations Security Council resolutions on the mullahs’ nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment must be reinstated.
  • Eviction of the regime, it is Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.
  • The European Union must place Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence on the terrorist watch list.
  • The UN Security Council must refer to the clerical regime’s dossier on human rights abuses and atrocities, especially the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mainly Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) members, and supporters,  to an international court.
  • The world community must recognize the right of the Iranian People’s Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy and attain freedom.

The Iranian regime will no doubt fall, it is only a matter of time.

Maryam Rajavi: Inaction Emboldens the Regime

Mayam Rajavi

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the NCRI’s President-elect

The Iranian regime launched a coordinated missile and drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil installations last weekend. This is a blatant act of war, according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

Following the attack, regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei denied responsibility for the attacks and refused to engage in negotiations with the United States at any level unless “America repented.”

“They send the Europeans… to insist on us to come and have a meeting with the American President and all your problems will be solved. This is because they want to prove that the policy of maximum pressure is a success. On the contrary, we must prove that the policy of maximum pressure is not worth a penny,” Khamenei added.

U.S. sanctions have reduced Iranian oil exports to nearly zero, crippling its already struggling economy and limiting its ability to fund proxy wars in the region. The regime has responded by using its remaining resources to attack oil tankers and installations and threaten vessels in the strategically-important Strait of Hormuz. The mullahs are operating under the belief that if they can’t sell oil, no one can.

Maryam Rajavi’s Statement

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI, issued a statement regarding the latest act of aggression by the Iranian regime. She described the act on a neighboring country’s oil installations as a major step and a new phase in the warmongering and aggressive behavior of the religious dictatorship currently in power in Iran. She added that the world must respond with a decisive display of power, as this is the only language the mullahs understand.

Mrs. Rajavi further stated that inaction emboldens the tyrannical regime, and the primary victims of this inaction are the Iranian people. She emphasized that the Iranian regime is the source of all instability in the Middle East, and the only real solution to ridding the world of the continuing threat posed by Iran is regime change by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

The Correct Response to the Regime’s Aggression

Mrs. Rajavi called on the international community to take the following actions in response to this most recent act of aggression by the Iranian regime:

  • Reinstate the previous U.N. Security Council resolutions on the regime’s nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment.
  • Evict the regime, its Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), and its mercenaries from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan.
  • Add Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC, and the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to the European Union’s terrorist watch list.
  • Act immediately within the U.N. Security Council to refer the dossier on the regime’s human rights abuses, particularly those committed during the 1988 Massacre of 30,000 political prisoners (most of whom were Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK.PMOI, members), to the International Criminal Court.
  • Recognize the right of the Iranian Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy in favor of freedom and democracy.

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.

Saudi oil facility was attacked by Iranian regime

Iran Attacks Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia

Saudi oil facility was attacked by Iranian regime

The Saudi Arabia Aramco oil and gas facility was attacked by the Iranian regime

The attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil and gas facilities in Abqaiq was a blow to one of the main arteries of the global economy. This event once again rose the international concern about the threat of the Iranian regime to universal peace and stability. In an article entitled: “Attack on Saudi Arabia Demands a United Response”, Blumberg wrote:

“The Trump administration should use the United Nations General Assembly this week in New York to marshal a global response.” “The attacks on Abqaiq — and by extension, on the global economy — should clarify Trump’s thinking. This is the moment to rally the international community to deal with the threat from Iran.” Blumberg added

Despite denying the attack by the Iranian regime, right after the attack, all fingers pointed at Iran as the source of the attack. Reuters On Sep 15 reported:

“The scope and precision of drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities show they were launched from a west-northwest direction rather than from Yemen to the south, where Houthi rebels claimed responsibility, senior U.S. administration officials said on Sunday.”

The report quoted an official who told a small group of reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity:

“There’s no doubt that Iran is responsible for this. No matter how you slice it, there’s no escaping it. There’s no other candidate. Evidence points in no other direction than that Iran was responsible for this”

The Wall Street Journal wrote on Sunday:

“Saudi Arabian Oil Co., known as Aramco, has made an early assessment that its facilities were hit by missiles, people familiar with the matter said. A U.S. government assessment determined that the strikes hit at least 17 places at Abqaiq, a large processing facility close to the Persian Gulf. Many hit on their west-northwest-facing sides. That might suggest they were hit from Iraq to the north, not drones launched from Yemen to the south.” Remember when Iran shot down a drone, saying knowingly that it was in their “airspace” when, in fact, it was nowhere close. They stuck strongly to that story knowing that it was a very big lie. Now they say that they had nothing to do with the attack on Saudi Arabia. We’ll see?”

Donald Trump said Sunday that the United States was “locked and loaded” for a potential response to the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities after a senior administration official said Iran was at fault.

Meanwhile, the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, and many countries including Spain on Sunday condemned the attack. The Spanish Foreign Ministry in a statement expressed its concern and said: “This kind of attack poses a threat to the lives of civilians, increases tensions, threatens the security of the region and harms global energy security”. Palestinian President Abbas also in a call with Saudi King condemned attacks on Aramco.

One more time, the attack on the Saudi oil facilities shows that the Iranian regime is the main source of threat not only to regional stability but to the world peace; granting any concession to this regime will embolden it and put the regional and global peace and stability at risk. As the MEK reiterated time and again, the world must hold this regime accountable for its destabilizing behavior.

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.

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

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.”

Assadollah Assadi, Iranian regime's diplomat-terrorist

Former Italian FM: Pompeo’s Brussels Visit Is Opportunity to Address Iran Threat

Assadollah Assadi, Iranian regime's diplomat-terrorist

The Iranian regime diplomat-terrorist, who was the mastermind behind last year’s terror plot to bomb MEK’s Free Iran rally in Paris. Assadollah Assadi was arrested by German police and later extradited to Belgium for trial.

In an op-ed published on the Euractiv website, former Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi argued that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s trip to Brussels on September 2-3 offers an excellent opportunity to address the global threat posed by the Iranian regime.

Bellicose Behavior

“One of the main challenges is how to deal with the Iranian regime and its bellicose behavior,” wrote Terzi. He cited the regime’s increasing aggression toward commercial shipping vessels in the Middle East, including the seizure of a British-flagged vessel in mid-July.

“The United Kingdom responded appropriately by directing its warships in the region to shadow such vessels for the foreseeable future. But Europe has seemed hesitant to recognize the Iranian threat as extending to them,” Terzi wrote.

“The EU may be able to fool itself into believing that the naval activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have been directed only against the US and Britain, even though seized and damaged tankers have born the flags of various countries including Norway and Japan. But no such self-deception can be justified when it comes to the threat of terrorism originating in or backed by Tehran,” he stressed.

The former Italian Foreign Minister explained that at least six terrorist plots and assassinations by the Iranian regime were foiled by Western authorities in 2018. The targets ranged from opposition groups in the United States to the MEK’s headquarters in Albania.

Terrorist Plot on 2018 Free Iran Gathering

The most significant of the regime’s 2018 terrorist plots involved an Iranian-Belgian couple who were arrested with 500 kilograms of TATP explosives. The couple acting under the orders of regime diplomat Assadollah Assadi, were enroute to the annual Free Iran gathering of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Villepinte, France where they planned to set off the explosives.

The Free Iran gathering was attended by 100,000 Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) supporters, as well as hundreds of high-ranking politicians and dignitaries from around the world. Terzi was in attendance.

Regime diplomat Assadollah Assadi was arrested for masterminding the attack and eventually extradited to Belgium, where he and three accomplices are currently awaiting trial. The plot was planned by officials at the highest levels of the regime, wrote Terzi.

“Had the plot been successful, it would have not only taken place on European soil but would have almost certainly claimed European lives. If one is aware of this incident, one cannot deny that the Iranian threat to the international community is genuine, severe, and far-reaching,” Terzi emphasized.

“To be more precise, no one can deny this conclusion in good faith. But that won’t necessarily stop any given policymaker from denying it anyway. In advance of Iran’s Foreign Minister visiting Paris, French President Emmanuel Macron reportedly told his security chiefs to keep silent about last year’s terror plot. Now, in the wake of visits to Europe by the top diplomats from both Iran and the US, it is up to the incoming EU leadership to determine whose attitude toward Iran carries more weight: those who are explicitly covering up its crimes, or those who aspire to hold it to account,” he continued.

“The answer to this question will yield both short and long-term consequences. In the first place, it may determine whether the diplomat-terrorist who masterminded last year’s Paris bomb plot is actually punished in accordance with the charges he is now facing in Belgium. And the message of his prosecution may, in turn, set the stage for a proper, multilateral response to further Iranian terrorism, at a time when the regime is threatening Western entities like the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, subjecting them to ‘sanctions’ that might better be understood as fatwas,” Terzi argued.

“Speaking more broadly, decisions in the coming days may determine the future of US-EU relations. The Europeans need to recognize the need for confronting Iranian threats and guaranteeing that the regime faces consequences for criminal behavior,” Terzi concluded.
