MEK Supporters to Protest Rouhani in New York

MEK supporters are holding a demonstration in protest of Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani in New York next Tuesday, September 24th. The “No to Rouhani” demonstration will call attention to Rouhani’s leadership role in a regime that is the number one state sponsor of terrorism and holds the record for the highest number of executions per capita.

The United Nations General Assembly is meeting in New York from September 17-September 30. The organizers of the “No to Rouhani” protest argue that the leader of the oppressive Iranian regime has no place at the U.N. during this year’s General Assembly.

An Aggressive and Brutal Regime

The Iranian regime has escalated its crackdown on all forms of dissent in the wake of growing social unrest across the country. Its notoriously brutal and inhumane prisons are overcrowded, and the number of executions has increased. Public executions and executions of juvenile offenders are common. Political prisoners and detainees are subject to torture, sometimes to the point of death. Lifesaving medical treatment is routinely denied to prisoners, particularly political prisoners.

Meanwhile, the regime has responded to sanctions with increasing aggression, further isolating itself from the international community. It continues to support terrorist proxy groups and fund regional wars that destabilize the region, and it has launched a series of attacks on vessels in the Strait of Hormuz. The Iranian regime has also reneged on its commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and redoubled its efforts to create nuclear weapons.

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

The MEK supporters organizing the “No to Rouhani” demonstration believe that Rouhani, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif should be sanctioned for these crimes. They also believe that Rouhani should face an international tribunal for his role in crimes committed by the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The “No to Rouhani” demonstration is an extension of the anti-regime protests taking place across Iran on a daily basis. The Iranian people are crying out for freedom from the mullahs’ tyrannical rule, and they are ready to launch a new uprising with the leadership of the MEK Resistance Units. The goal of the uprising will be to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and replace it with a secular democracy in Iran.

A Paper Tiger

National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi discussed the mission of the MEK and the Iranian Resistance in a speech at the Washington, D.C. Free Iran Rally on June 21, 2019:

“… above and beyond anything else, the mullahs are most fearful of change at the hands of the Iranian people, the Iranian Resistance and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK).

“It is right at this point that it becomes clear that the religious dictatorship is a paper tiger when it comes to facing off with the Iranian Resistance. And its fate is no different from the fate of the Shah’s dictatorship. This is the verdict of history and the yearning of the people of Iran. Yes, freedom will prevail over the Shah and the Sheikh (mullahs),” she said.

“The regime is getting weaker by the day, and with every passing day, it gets a step closer to its downfall. Consequently, all of us bear heavier responsibilities. This is the time for us to be on alert.

“Without a doubt, the faltering mullahs’ dictatorship cannot withstand our nation’s resistance, uprisings, and the great Army of Freedom,” she stressed.

“The time has come to rise. In such circumstances, our country Iran needs us to rise to our national duty more than ever before in order to rid our homeland of the hideous mullahs’ regime,” Mrs. Rajavi emphasized.

Welcoming Zarif: Opening the Ground for Terrorism

Amb. Adam Ereli

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zarif, Soleimani: Two Sides of the Same Coin

Zarif and Soleimani

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zarif, Iranian regime’s FM, and a terrorist calls for killing the MEK supporters

Struan Stevenson

Struan Stevenson, Former MEP, and  coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change

The visits of Iranian regime Foreign Minister Zarif to France and Nordic countries triggered a crisis in the regime.

On his visit to Sweden, reacting to protests by the MEK supporters against his presence in Sweden, Zarif revealed his terrorist nature and said: “Ask any of those individuals standing outside to attend any meetings with Iranians (meaning the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents) and then see whether they would survive. They would not stay alive for a minute…. They cannot even stay in Iraq because the people of Iraq (meaning the regime’s proxies in that country) will eat them alive.”

Struan Stevenson, coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change, and former member of the European Parliament in an article in UPI titled “Iran’s foreign minister should be banned from Europeclarifies how Zarif and the ministry he represents is involved in terrorist activities in Europe.

As foreign minister, Zarif is in charge of Iran’s army of ambassadors and diplomatic staff. In June 2018, he was therefore responsible for the orders given to Assadollah Assadi, a diplomat from the Iranian Embassy in Vienna. Assadi was instructed to hand over 500 gm of high explosives and a detonator to an Iranian couple from Antwerp, Belgium. He ordered them to drive to Paris and detonate the bomb at a major rally organized by the National Council for Resistance in Iran attended by over 100,000 people.

Writes Stevenson referring to the terrorist plot against the annual gathering of the Iranian resistance. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian resistance, Rudy Giuliani and other high-ranking international political leaders participated in the gathering.

The article describes how Zarif flew to Vienna the day following the plot:

  “Zarif had even arranged to fly to Vienna, the day following the proposed bombing outrage, presumably to congratulate Assadi personally and to spread the usual lies and propaganda, no doubt blaming the Mojahedin e-Khalq/People’s Mojahedin of Iran (MEK/PMOI), the main opposition to the mullahs, for planning the attack on their own supporters so that they could point the finger of blame at the Iranian regime.”

The article continues to enlighten how the regime’s so-called diplomats in Albania were involved in terrorist activities against the MEK:

“Ironically, the senior diplomat whom Assadi had replaced in the Vienna Embassy was Mostafa Roodaki, another trained MOIS agent. He had previously been the head of the Iranian regime’s intelligence station in Austria and had been coordinating activities against the MEK across the whole of Europe. Roodaki had been redeployed to Albania by Zarif, with the rank of the first secretary in the Iranian Embassy in Tirana. He was joined there by a new ambassador appointed by Zarif, Gholam Hossein Mohammadnia, a former high-ranking Iranian intelligence official who had also been a member of the Iranian nuclear negotiating team.

Zarif had clearly instructed his new team of “diplomats” in Albania that their main mandate was to track down and eliminate the MEK, which had created a new compound in the country housing over 2,500 of their members.

But once again Zarif’s plans were thwarted. Albanian intelligence officers uncovered a plot to detonate a bomb at a Nowruz (Iranian New Year) gathering of MEK members in Tirana. Two MOIS agents, together with Mohammadnia and his Roodaki, were expelled from the country by Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama. ”

https://twitter.com/Mojahedineng/status/1160126659502063616

The writer mentions other terror plots that bear the fingerprints of Zarif’s diplomat-terrorists and concludes the article by writing:

“With this catalog of assassinations and bomb plots involving Iranian diplomatic personnel under the leadership and guidance of Zarif, it is not surprising that the United States has decided to label him a terrorist. Yet the West continues to believe that his mastery of English and his benign smile mean that he must be a trustworthy moderate with whom we can negotiate. It may be worth remembering that Adolf Hitler’s foreign minister, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, was also a fluent English speaker and could also smile benignly for the cameras. He was executed as a war criminal on Oct. 16, 1946.”

G7 summit

Iranian people: G7 Must Take a Firm Stand Against Mullahs

G7 summit

G7 discussed the disestablishing role of the Iranian regime

While “Iran” is discussed in G7 or any other similar summit, Iranians’ voices must be heard. For the past four decades, this voice had been loud and clear, but sadly it has been denied or ignored by the West. If G7, like other western leaders, haven’t heard Iranian’s cry for freedom, they should have heard the Iranian diaspora, the MEK supporters in their recent rallies against Zarif’s trip to Nordic countries and France.

Iranian’s determination and demands are crystal clear: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Their demand is a firm and decisive policy towards the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, and they reject appeasing the illegitimate regime under the pretext of economic relations.

This was the message echoed clearly in MEK supporter’s rallies against Zarif visits.

The G7 leaders are questioned if they haven’t seen the outrage of Iranian diaspora from the regime and its mouthpiece Javad Zarif in Finland, Stockholm, Norway, and Paris. Accordingly, the outrage is tenfold inside Iran. On Wednesday, August 21, following various protest to Zarif’s presence in Sweden, by pointing to the Iranian protesters Zarif said:

“Ask any of those individuals standing outside to attend any meetings with Iranians (meaning the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents) and then see whether they would survive. They would not stay alive for a minute…. They cannot even stay in Iraq because the people of Iraq (meaning the regime’s proxies in that country) will eat them alive.”

https://twitter.com/4FreedominIran/status/1164649373361496073

While Zarif, as a so-called “moderate” threatens the peaceful demonstrators and supporters of the MEK to death in a democratic country, one can guess how they are treating the political prisoners inside the torture chambers.

Zarif’s trip to Northern Europe and France was an absolute failure. The brave Iranian diaspora turned his trip to a disaster. Foreign Minister of Sweden acknowledged that her country did not invite Zarif and the visit was Zarif’s initiative.

She emphasized that she reminded the situation of human rights in Iran and the region’s security to Zarif. The same concerns were conveyed to Zarif by Norway’s Foreign Minister. Zarif’s trip was a total failure and his furious reaction to Iranian dissidents reflect this failure.

The message to G7 is clear: DO NOT BET ON A DEAD HORSE! This regime is on the verge of collapse. It is time for the west to put an end to the appeasement policy recognizing the right of Iranian people to enjoy freedom and prosperity. On 25 Aug, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in a tweet, reiterated that:

Supporters of MEK hold a rally in Paris protesting against Zarif’s trip to France

Iranian regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif traveled to Paris on Friday to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron amidst a wave of protests from the Iranian diaspora in France, MEK supporters, and human rights activists.

Paris Protests

Protests in France began early Friday morning in Paris’ Trocadero Square in protest of Zarif’s arrival, growing to a crowd of hundreds.

MEK supporters in Paris demand expel of Zarif from France

Videos shared on social media show protesters marching with Iranian flags and holding signs demanding, “Expel agents of the terrorist regime,” “Stop appeasing mullahs’ regime,” “End making concessions to the mullahs,” and “Shut down the Iranian regime’s espionage centers in Europe.”

The demonstrators carried a banner that read, “Expel Zarif,” and chanted, “Zarif is a terrorist! Expel him!” and “Zarif is a charlatan and has to get out of France!”

The District One municipality in Paris hung a banner on its municipal building in opposition to Zarif’s visit. The banner featured an image of Zarif and read, “Iran’s Mullahs and its Foreign Minister violate our principles. We do not welcome them.” District One in Paris is a sister to Ashraf-3.

Disrespectful to the People of Iran

Paris is the last leg of Zarif’s European tour with foreign leaders, which began last weekend and included trips to Finland, Sweden, and Norway. The regime Foreign Minister was greeted with protests from MEK supporters and members of the Iranian communities in each of the countries he visited. The protesters condemned the Iranian regime’s despicable human rights record and its state-sponsorship of terrorism. They further said that it was disrespectful to the people of Iran who have fought the mullahs’ oppression for forty years to allow Zarif to enter Europe after multiple terrorist plots against the MEK and Iranian dissidents on European soil by the regime in 2018 were foiled by European authorities.

Five regime diplomats, including an ambassador, were expelled from Europe for their involvement in terrorist plots against the MEK and Iranian dissidents in 2018. Another four operatives and a regime diplomat are currently awaiting trial in Belgium for the attempted bombing of the Free Iran gathering outside of Paris in 2018.

Zarif’s Reaction

Zarif, who ostensibly planned this European tour in an attempt to assuage the fears of the international community and convince the world that the Iranian regime is not dangerous or unstable, responded to the large crowds of protesters with predictable rage. In an August 21st interview with Iranian regime state-run Press TV, he openly threatened the protesters in Sweden calling for his expulsion, saying: “Ask any one of those individuals standing outside to attend any meetings by Iranians [the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents] and then see whether they would survive. They would not stay alive for a minute…. They cannot stay in Iraq either because the people of Iraq [the regime’s proxies in that country] will eat them alive.”

 

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström responded to the public outcry against Zarif’s presence in the country, saying that the Swedish government did not invite Zarif and that he had requested the visit.

Lars Rise and Iranian diaspora's rally in Norway

Hold Zarif accountable, don’t roll out the red carpet

Rally of MEK supporters in Norway

MEK supporters in Norway protest against Zarif’s trip to this country, demanding stop appeasing the Iranian regime

The trip by the Iranian regime’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to Nordic countries raised a series of concerns and questions about western policy toward the religious dictatorship ruling Iran. Rallies in Finland, Sweden, and Norway by the Iranian diaspora against Zarif, drew public attention to violations of human rights in Iran. Many politicians and human rights activists in these countries expressed their concerns about their own governments’ foreign policies. They are asking why should their governments embrace Zarif and lend legitimacy to a government that is on the verge of collapse. Why should they welcome the mouth-piece of tyrants in Iran by turning their backs on the Iranian people, and trampling on their own values and principals at a time that Tehran faces growing signs of dissent, particularly among youth, and when Iran’s economy is falling apart and its international isolation is growing.

Lars Rise and Iranian diaspora's rally in Norway

Lars Rise, a prominent Norwegian politician and President of the Norwegian committee of Friends of a Free Iran in an article, Hold Zarif Accountable for Iran’s Human Rights Violations, on 22 Aug 2019, asked:

“Does believing in diplomacy and not being a proponent of war oblige one to deal with tyrants or embrace their facilitators and enablers? Of course, any conscientious person would say no. So why do Norwegian officials feel obliged to roll out the red carpet for Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, during his Scandinavian tour?”

Describing the nature of the Iranian regime and the true face of Zarif, Mr. Rise adds:

“The Iranian theocracy is based on the concept of Velayat-e faqih, or absolute rule of the supreme leader. Every official is vetted for allegiance to him, and Ali Khamenei himself hand picks a number of ministers, including the foreign minister. So it is unsurprising that Zarif has been complicit for years in the Iranian regime’s malign activities. He has not only been the face and voice of the ayatollahs’ rule, he has personally worked to implement Khamenei’s reckless agenda and to justify and whitewash Tehran’s crimes at home and abroad. In reality, he is more of a propaganda minister than a foreign minister.”

Zarif and dictator of Iran

https://twitter.com/DowlatNowrouzi/status/1163542080649646081

The writer then reveals Zarif’s records and says:

“Zarif is no stranger to crimes against humanity. He was active as a senior career diplomat in the United Nations in 1988 while his government butchered over 30,000 political prisoners, members and supporters of the Mojahedin-e Khalq, the main opposition movement in Iran.”

Assadollah Asadi, the terrorist diplomat of Zarif’s foreign ministry, who plotted the Paris bombing

“A diplomat from the Iranian embassy in Vienna has been charged with a plot to bomb a MEK rally in Paris in June 2018 and is awaiting trial in Belgium. The ambassador and first secretary from the Iranian embassy in Albania were expelled from that country last December on similar charges. Zarif is ultimately their boss.”

https://twitter.com/Amotevalli/status/1164456315663650816

Mr. Rise then talks about Zarif’s hypocrisy:

 “An appeasement policy was pursued on both sides of the Atlantic for three decades. But that policy is coming to an end, and the Iranian regime can no longer count on the U.S. to be its lifesaver.”

At the end the writer concludes:

“Nobody wants a war with Iran, but the best way to prevent war is to reject Tehran’s egregious conduct wholesale. By rejecting Zarif’s visit and holding him to account, Norway would be taking an ethical and principled position while sending a message of support to the Iranian people who are crying out for freedom.”

MEK-Iran: Zarif Issues Death Threats to Protesters in Sweden during Diplomatic Tour of Scandinavia and France

Iranian's rally in France

Supporters of MEK in France hold a rally against the trip of Zarif, the FM of the Iranian regime, Aug 23, 2019

Iranian regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif lashed out at protesting members of the Iranian diaspora in Sweden on Wednesday with a series of death threats, saying that the protesters, who were in Stockholm to demand Zarif’s expulsion from Sweden, would not survive in Iran or Iraq because they would be eaten alive.

The threats came during an August 21st interview with Iranian state-run Press TV. Zarif, who was clearly rattled by protests during his visits to Finland and Sweden, openly threatened the demonstrators with death, saying: “Ask any of those individuals standing outside to attend any meetings with Iranians [the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents] and then see whether they would survive. They would not stay alive for a minute…. They cannot even stay in Iraq because the people of Iraq [the regime’s proxies in that country] will eat them alive.”

Zarif’s comments took place in the midst of a diplomatic tour of Finland, Sweden, Norway, and France. The presumed goal of these visits is to convince the international community that the Iranian regime does not pose a threat to the world and should be treated like a “normal country.” The fact that Zarif could not manage to avoid threatening peaceful protesters in Europe with death even on a diplomatic tour is telling.

Protests in Scandinavia and France

On Monday, protesters greeted Zarif in Helsinki, Finland bearing signs reading, “Zarif Get Lost!” and “Stop appeasing mullahs in Iran.”

Europe and Nordic countries are no Place for Criminals and Terrorists: World Peace, Stability, and Democracy Requires Regime Change in Iran.”

On Wednesday, Swedish police arrested protesters who were demonstrating for the second day of Zarif’s visit. Videos posted to social media show members of the Iranian diaspora lying on the ground passively resisting arrest and yellow-jacketed MEK supporters recording the arrests, attending to those who were injured, and attempting to defuse the situation.

In Norway, members of the Iranian diaspora gathered in front of Norwegian Parliament to protest Zarif’s arrival in Oslo on Thursday. They held a large banner, which read, “Europe and Nordic countries are no Place for Criminals and Terrorists! Kick Javad Zarif Out! World Peace, Stability, and Democracy Requires Regime Change in Iran,” and waved Iranian flags.  Former Norwegian MP from the Christian Democratic Party, Lars Rise, joined the protesters in solidarity with their cause.

Iranian protest against Zarif's trip to northern Europe

The Iranian diaspora, in Sweden, supporters of the MEK, protest against Zarif’s trip to Nordic countries, asking for an end to the policy of appeasement

Regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif’s visit to Scandinavian countries this week was met with outrage by the Iranian communities, who held demonstrations in Sweden and Finland to protest his arrival.

Protests in Sweden

On Tuesday, protesters in Stockholm held large banners reading “Stop appeasing the Mullahs’ regime. Expel their agents,” and “Kick Javad Zarif Out! Europe and Nordic countries are no Place for Criminals and Terrorists: World Peace, Stability, and Democracy Requires Regime Change in Iran.”

Others carried signs featuring Zarif’s face and the words “No to Despicable Shameful Diplomacy” and “Zarif Get Lost!”

The MEK and Iranian Resistance emphasized that meeting with the foreign minister of a country that has repeatedly committed terrorist acts against its opposition on European soil is disrespectful to the Iranian people who have spent 40 years fighting against the regime’s tyranny and oppression.

Protests in Finland

On Monday, yellow-jacketed MEK protesters and members of the Iranian communities in Helsinki greeted Zarif with banners and signs, demanding, “Zarif Get Lost!” in English and Finnish. Some carried signs shaped like hands proclaiming, “Stop appeasing mullahs in Iran.” Many of the protesters carried large Iranian flags.

Condemnation from the Iranian Resistance

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) issued a statement on August 17th condemning Zarif’s trip to Scandinavia, writing, “The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the visit by the head of the medieval theocracy’s diplomat-terrorists, as it will embolden the regime to continue and step up the flagrant and systematic violations of human right and the export of terrorism and warmongering. This trip only arouses the Iranian people’s anger and abhorrence and must be canceled.”

The MEK has called for Zarif’s blacklisting from the international community for years, citing his role in the regime’s terrorist activities. Zarif characterizes himself as a moderate, but his actions prove otherwise. As Foreign Minister of Iran, he represents and supports the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

The United States recently issued sanctions against Zarif, citing his role as a spokesperson for the regime. These sanctions followed sanctions against Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and terrorist designations of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

In 2018, five Iranian regime diplomats, including an ambassador, were expelled from Europe for plotting terrorist attacks against the MEK and Iranian dissidents. Another four regime agents and a diplomat are currently in prison awaiting trial in Belgium for plotting a terrorist attack on the Free Iran Rally in Paris on June 2018.

The MEK urges the international community to blacklist Zarif and ends its appeasement of this terrorist regime. Diplomacy requires a good faith effort from both parties to reach an accord. Zarif and the mullahs have no intention of changing their behavior.

Zarif is scheduled to continue his tour with a stop in Norway this week. He is also set to meet in France with President Emmanuel Macron in the near future.

MEK protests Zarif's visit to Finland

Iran Opposition: Call for Condemnation and Cancellation of Javad Zarif’s Trip to Scandinavian Countries

MEK protests Zarif's visit to Finland

The Iranian diaspora, supporters of the MEK, protest against Zarif’s trip to Finland, asking for an end to the policy of appeasement.

Yesterday, 19 August 2019, Javad Zarif, visited Finland, and is now in Sweden, and will travel to Norway, in a tour visit to Scandinavian Countries. He is a well-known mouthpiece of the Iranian medieval theocracy. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) expressed its objection to this trip in a statement on August 17, 2019. The NCRI said, “The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the visit by the head of the medieval theocracy’s diplomat-terrorists, as it will embolden the regime to continue and step up the flagrant and systematic violations of human right and the export of terrorism and warmongering. This trip only arouses the Iranian people’s anger and abhorrence and must be canceled.”

Recently, the US sanctioned Javad Zarif, formally labeling him a terrorist enabler and blacklisting all of his property, assets, and investments.

US Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin said in a statement on the move, “Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran’s Supreme Leader, and is the regime’s primary spokesperson around the world. The United States sent a clear message to the Iranian regime that its recent behavior is completely unacceptable.”

 

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said in a statement, “… The Iranian regime denies Iranian citizens’ access to social media, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif spreads the regime’s propaganda and disinformation around the world through these mediums… Iran’s Foreign Ministry is not merely the diplomatic arm of the Islamic Republic but also a means of advancing many of the Supreme Leader’s destabilizing policies, Foreign Minister Zarif and the Foreign Ministry he runs take their direction from the Supreme Leader and his office. Foreign Minister Zarif is a key enabler of Ayatollah Khamenei’s policies throughout the region and around the world. The designation of Javad Zarif today reflects this reality.” Pompeo added.

The hosting of Zarif by the leaders of these Scandinavian countries is quite unacceptable for the Iranian people. They should remember that history has not looked kindly on appeasement of Nazi fascism in the early 20th century. Now also it is shameful to welcome a man representing a regime that holds a world record in executions, is a state sponsor of terrorism, is the primary source of crisis and chaos in the region, and is the main patron of Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad in his massacre of the people of Syria.

It is crystal clear that the main purpose of Zarif’s trip is to defend and whitewash the mullahs’ crimes and facilitate terrorist plots against the Iranian opposition, particularly the MEK. It is worth mentioning that, just in 2018, five of the regime’s diplomat-terrorists, including an ambassador, were expelled from Europe for their direct role in terrorist conspiracies against the Iranian Resistance and dissidents. Another four operatives, including a so-called diplomat, are in prison and awaiting trial in Brussels for plotting to bomb the Free Iran grand gathering in Paris in 2018.

NCRI added in its statement, “Similar to the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, its President Hassan Rouhani, and the Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani, Zarif and other officials must face justice, just like Hitler’s Foreign Minister, for taking part and facilitating crimes against humanity and genocide.”
