MEK- Iran: Uprising, What Mullahs Fear the Most

Last week, Iran witnessed a wave of protests across the country. Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) recorded more than sixty protests and gatherings by workers, teachers, pensioners, people who lost money to credit firms affiliated with the IRGC, farmers, and college students. Even in prisons, political prisoners protested against the inhuman restrictions imposed by suppressive guards.

Workers in Azarab factory, the central city of Arak, demanded their unpaid salaries.

Embers beneath the ashes

Difficult living conditions for the people along with unprecedented corruption and embezzlement, turned the Iranian society to embers beneath the ashes, so that, every single protest or gathering can be turned into social unrest as it happened in Lordegan last week. The majority of the Iranian population’s living under the poverty line is the source of the crises.

Panic spreads to the Iranian regime

After the recent uprisings in Lordegan, Arak, Shush, and Isfahan, the mullahs are afraid of more protests and uprisings, particularly in major cities. They know that every public protest in metropolitan cities can easily spread throughout the country as it happened in December 2018 and January 2019 when 140 cities rose up against the regime.

This panic can be seen in the remarks of Major General Bagheri, General Staff of Armed Forces of the Iranian regime when he said: ” The security of Tehran is constant and stable! It is heartwarming security for the people!” It seems that the uprising in Lordegan as well as other cities across the country, has forced the top security and military officials of the regime to concentrate on the “security of the capital!”

Due to this panic, all security and military forces of the Iranian regime have been on high alert since one month ago in the capital, Tehran, to control and suppress any unpredicted uprising.

Imposing military fury on the society, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is the main surviving tool for the mullahs. Pointing to the key role of IRGC, Khomeini, the founder of this despotic regime once said: “if there was not the IRGC, there wouldn’t be the country (regime)”

The IRGC has always been ready to suppress any uprising inside Iran for decades.

The policy of appeasement, for four decades, and delay in listing the IRGC as a terrorist organization, helped to expand terrorism in the region and the globe. It cannot be forgotten when Mohsen Rafighdoost, the former Minister of the IRGC, referring to the blast of the US NAVY’s base in Lebanon in 1983 said: ” both the ideology and the explosive (of the blast) had gone from Iran.”

It is time to put an end to the destructive policy of appeasement and to recognize the main Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (which includes MEK) as the legitimate and reliable alternative to this terrorist regime. Too much time has already been lost.

Iran killed protester in Lordegan

Iran Killed Protester on Saturday

Iran killed protester in Lordegan

In a demonstration against the Iranian regime in Lordegan, the Iranian regime’s suppressive security forces killed Saadatollah (Gharib) Mousavi.

The Iranian regime’s suppressive security forces in Lordegan killed a protester on Saturday.

Saadatollah (Gharib) Mousavi, who was a resident of the Bedelleh suburb, will be laid to rest in a memorial service today.

He was one of thousands of residents who took part in a demonstration against the Iranian regime and in support of the residents of Chenar Mahmoudi village in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari province over the weekend, after it was discovered that a health clinic in the village had used contaminated needles to test hundreds of villagers for diabetes and exposed them to HIV. So far, more than 300 people have tested positive for HIV.

Many villagers had protested outside the governor’s office on October 2, sparking a national outcry, but Iran’s Health Minister denied the claims and blamed the outbreak on “addicts” and “unsuitable relationships”; words echoed by the state media.

Understandably, this made people mad and they took to the streets in their thousands, with angry young people burning government centers, like the office of the representative of the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei, the health clinic responsible for the outbreak, and the Lordegan governor’s office, as they chanted “death to [the] dictator”.

During the protest, the security forces attacked the protesters with pellet guns and wounded a number of protesters, including a 15-year-old boy, while the protesters tried to defend themselves by throwing rocks or whatever they could get their hands on.

The Iranian regime then imposed an unofficial martial law on the city, stationing tanks at the entrance of the town and having its agents constantly patrol the area, because it is scared of a possible uprising. The regime was forced to admit that the main Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is leading the protests, which belies the support they have among Iranians.

Ali-Mohammad Akbari, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in the province, said: “The [MEK] were present in the recent riots. They… were guiding people.”

Other cities, including Isfahan and Jolfa, have taken to the streets in support of the Lordegan residents.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran wrote:

“The Iranian Resistance expresses its highest admiration and condolences to the brave residents of Lordegan. We call on the UN Secretary-General, UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) and all other UN-related bodies to condemn the ruling religious fascism in Iran for its brutal suppression of popular protests and especially that of Lordegan’s residents.”

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.

The Iranian regime Supreme leader

Whistling in the dark

The Iranian regime Supreme leader

The Iranian regime Supreme leader speaking to the oppressive IRGC commanders- October 2, 2019

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei spoke at the annual meeting of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commanders. Khamenei tried hard to galvanize the top commanders by giving them false hopes. Khamenei knows full well the deep economic crisis the country is facing. But in his speech he tried to put the blame on others and said, referring to actual problems the ordinary citizens have:

“If they [Hassan Rouhani’s faction] look inward, strong and rational…it will have a positive impact on people’s lives.” It seems that he had forgotten that only a few years ago he recommended that his regime follow a strategy called “heroic flexibility”

to address the country’s economic problems. What Khamenei refuses to say is that his regime is on the verge of collapse.

The mullahs’ supreme leader spoke of the same deadly force responsible for many carnages not only in the Middle East but throughout the world. In the late 80s, Mohsen Rafighqdoost, then minister of IRGC admitted that the regime was responsible for booming the U.S. servicemen barracks in 1983 in Lebanon leaving hundreds dead and many more wounded.

“The U.S. has had a feeling of our power and knows the explosives mixed with that ideology that sent 400 officers and soldiers to Hell. Both the TNT and ideology came from Iran. This is very much obvious for the U.S.,” Rafighdoost said on July 21, 1987, referring to the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marines’ barracks in Beirut.

In 1996 IRGC struck again, this time at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, leaving 19 U.S. air force personal dead.

More recently again the devastating attack on Saudi Arabia but this time on ARAMCO oil installations which disrupted the world’s oil supply by five million barrels for a few days. IRGC tried to pin the attack on its proxies, the Houthis in Yemen, but it did not work. The National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI) revelations proved that the job was an operation no proxy group could accomplish. The information came from Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) sources within the regime. MEK is the main force inside NCRI.

Khamenei admired the deadly role the IRGC proxies such as the Houthis in Yemen and the Lebanese Hezbollah accomplish as the brilliant work of the resistance axes. But no one doubts that these proxies operate under the terrorist Quds Force watch and have no independent identity.

Khamenei also referred to Khatam al-Anbiya garrison as a harmless construction company with expansive charity work for helping people hiding its evil and warmongering nature.

A few days after the IRGC air force’s missile and drone unit carried out the attack on September 14, 2019, the operational commanders reported in detail to IRGC Major General Gholam-Ali Rashid, commander of the central headquarters Khatam al-Anbiya.

According to the information coming from the MEK: “After Khamenei’s initial approval of this operation, detailed planning began and the SNSC referred the plan to Khamenei for final approval. Khamenei ordered IRGC Major General Rashid and Brigadier General Hajizadeh to begin the operational implementation of the plan.”

MEK protests in US againest Rouhani

West Should Support MEK Amid Rising Tensions With Iran

MEK supporters protest in the US objecting Rouhani's presence at the UNGA- New York- September 24, 2019

Thousands of MEK supporters rally in New York, condemning the Iranian regime’s president’s presence at the United Nations General Assembly. September 24, 2019

Over the past two years, tensions have risen significantly between Iran and the international community, given the Iranian regime’s malign behavior and spread of terrorism in the region, the advancement of its ICBM, and the gross violations of human rights inside Iran.

Now, many are recommending that the US and the EU start to recognize the Iranian people’s democratic resistance, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), as the true representatives of the Iranian people.

The US has taken major steps against the Regime, including pulling out of the malign nuclear deal, but Europe has continued to try and preserve the deal in order to keep trading with Iran, but this shelters the Regime. The US has also decided to designate the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its commanders as terrorists while levying massive sanctions against Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei and minister of foreign affairs Javad Zarif. However, neither the US or the EU have officially recognized the MEK as they should do, because the MEK will overthrow the Regime and bring peace to the world.

U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif

Not only would supporting the MEK be good for the world, but also for the Iranian people, who are in favor of the MEK. After all, the nationwide uprising in 2017 and 2018 was led by the MEK. How could the MEK have led protests if they weren’t popular? Not to mention that MEK-inspired youths have been torching pro-regime symbols.

These protests, between September 22 and 27, also occurred on the anniversary of the 1981 protests, when MEK members burned large posters of then-Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.

The Regime knows this, of course, which is why they spend so much time trying to eradicate the MEK. In 2018 alone, the Regime attempted to carry out two terror plots against the MEK; one in Paris, where the MEK held their annual gathering, and one in Albania, at the MEK headquarters.

The MEK is the main alternative for regime change in Iran and has a strong network of resistance units inside the country. The MEK has been recognized by Ilir Meta, the President of Albania, and has long been a great source of vital intelligence on the Regime for the West.

The EU and the US must recognize the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) as the viable alternative to the ruling dictatorship if they want to side with the Iranian people and in order to preserve peace in the region.

MEK supporters arrested by Iranian regime repressive forces during demonstration

Iran Sees MEK Protests on Anniversary of 1981 Uprising

MEK supporters arrested by Iranian regime repressive forces during demonstration

MEK members and supporters arrested violently by IRGC and Basiji thugs during a widespread demonstration in major cities on September 27, 1981.

The Iranian Regime is at the center of recent tensions in the Middle East, following its attack on Saudi oil facilities and recent anti-regime demonstrations by its own citizens.

Similar to the anti-regime protests in September 27, 1981, where defiant youths torched large posters of regime founder and then-Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini, this round of protests over the period September 22-29 featured protesters setting fire to images of current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, as well as a number of Revolutionary Guard and Bassij bases in different cities across Iran.

Last week, yet more anti-regime activists plastered signs across Iran, bearing the slogans ‘Down with Khamenei’, ‘Long live freedom and Democracy’ and ‘Freedom with Maryam Rajavi‘, in reference to the leader of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), an organization trying to overthrow the mullahs. These people are protesting in spite of Iran’s brutal suppression of dissent and freedom of speech; they have been driven to the edge.

The 1981 demonstrations, also led by MEK members, featured crowds of young people in central Tehran chanting “Death to Khomeini” for the first time since the mullahs stole power from the people in the 1979 revolution to overthrow the Shah, who is also despised by most Iranians.

Khomeini’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) opened fire on the crowd and killed hundreds, before arresting many more. The detainees were executed later that day, without a fair trial.

The Iranian Revolution began in 1978, when at least five protestors, but more likely 70, were killed by security forces in the city of Qom. The ruling Shah then used increasing violence against the Iranian people, which resulted in the ‘Black Friday’ killing of 100 protestors by security officials on September 8, 1978. At this point, many leaders of the MEK were also executed.

Since that time, Iran’s relationship with the West has been a strained one and right now, tensions are probably the highest they’ve even been after Iran was accused by the US, France, the UK, and Germany of destroying two oil plants in Saudi Arabia

At the same time, Saudi Arabia’s minister of state for foreign affairs said that all options, including a military response, are on the table.

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.

New Acts of Defiance by the MEK Resistance Units

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.

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

Mrs. Ramesh Sepehrrad, from OIAC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
