Iranian Regime Killed as Many as 1,000 Protesters, the US State Department’s Top Iran Envoy Says

Fallen for Freedom in Iran

On December 4, 2019, the People’s Mojahedin MEK announced that the number of those killed by the Iranian regime’s suppressive forces during the nationwide uprising that has surpassed 1000.

Iranian regime “could have murdered over 1,000 Iranian citizens,” in recent protests, according to the US State Department Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook.

In a press briefing on Wednesday, Hook talked about the violence inflicted upon demonstrators, describing one incident in which he said U.S. officials believe Iranian regime’s security forces opened fire with machine guns on a large crowd of protesters, killing more than 100 and then loading their bodies onto trucks to be carted away.

IRGC- Terrorism

Terror Plots Against MEK in State Dept. Annual Report

IRGC- Terrorism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MEK Activities Across Iran

Based on the sources of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), during the period of 19 to 24 October 2019 in a campaign coinciding with the anniversary of the election of Mrs. Rajavi by the NCRI, the MEK resistance units accelerated their activities.

Enjoying a vast popular support, the defiant youth, supporters of the MEK, torched the symbols of the regime’s leadership, Khomeini, the founder of the religious dictatorship, and Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader, across Iran including, Mashhad (northeast), Shiraz (south), Zahedan (southeast), Kermanshah, Khorramabad and Boroujerd (west), Kashan (south-central), and Behbahan, and Gachsaran (southwest).

Based on a statement released by the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran on October 25, 2019:

During the same period, large placards and banners carrying Mrs. Maryam Rajavi’s picture were posted in different parts of Tehran, like Abbas Abad, Arya Shahr, Nivaran, and Modarres Expressways, Tehran Pars, Kurdistan and Kaveh Expressways, and elsewhere. The same was done in public places in many other Iranian cities.

MEK’s activities dramatically promote hope for change in Iran amongst the young generation as well as women, the hope for establishing a free, democratic Iran. The MEK resistance units are the source of inspiration in the society inside Iran and among the Iranian community abroad. Posting posters of Massoud Rajavi, leader of the Iranian Resistance, and Maryam Rajavi, by the supporters of the MEK, indicates the popular support for the MEK’s objectives and the ten-point plan of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi for a democratic, secular, and pluralistic Iran.

Below are some images of the MEK’s resistance units torching the Iranian regime’s symbols.

Dramatic Acceleration of MEK's Units Activities

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MEK- Iran: 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.
