Beginning the school year on 23rd Sep has always been the source of fear for the Iranian regime, giving a brilliant opportunity to the defiant youth to stoke the uprising in the country.

In a message to the students on the occasion of the new Iranian academic year, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), urged the students to rise up and liberate their homeland from the Mullahs’ occupation.

Pointing out that there were over 1,000 cases of teachers’ strikes and protests in 156 Iranian cities last year, she said that the number of student protests in universities also exceeded 180 cases across the country. The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq/ MEK) has played a key role in fomenting and directing the protests via its ‘Resistance Units’.

Mrs. Rajavi stressed that:

“Today, the mullahs have clamped down on and enchained every school and university by the numerous criminals who represent [the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei, and by multitudes of agencies, including the security departments and the paramilitary Bassij organizations in all schools and universities, and in government offices”

“Iranian students, teachers, and professors are rising up to build a free Iran for tomorrow, to establish a society based on freedom, democracy, equality, and separation of religion and state, and to set up a democratic educational regime,” she added.

The President-elect of NCRI saluted the “courageous high school and university students” saying:

“Iranian students, teachers, and professors are rising up to build a free Iran for tomorrow, to establish a society based on freedom, democracy, equality, and separation of religion and state, and to set up a democratic educational regime.”

With the anniversary of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran’s (PMOI/MEK) foundation and schools and universities opening day, courageous students call for uprisings and protests against the religious dictatorial regime ruling Iran, as the enemy of the Iranian people.

According to the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, on

September 21, 2019, they posted pictures of Resistance’s leadership in various cities across the country, including Tehran (the capital), Karaj (west of Tehran), Ahwaz and Khoramshahr (southwest), Amool (north), Arak (central), Kermanshah (west), Orumiyeh (northwest), Mashhad (northeast) and Shiraz (south).

Statements posted on the posters included the following:

-Tehran: Each college and school is a center for defiance against dictatorship and hotbed for promoting freedom

-Kermanshah: University and school students, as well as teachers and professors, call for the removal of Velaat-Faqeh (clerical supremacy). Mullahs’ regime is against knowledge and freedom.

-Shiraz: Turn each university campus and school ground into a place of defiance and protest.

French Mayors and personalities express support for a Free Iran

MEK Has Revived and Will Keep Fighting For a Democratic Iran Against The Mullahs

French Mayors and personalities express support for a Free Iran

The French delegation including a dozen distinguished elects and personalities expressed their solidarity with the MEK, and the Iranian resistance for a Free Iran- Ashraf 3, July 13, 2019

The 5-day Free Iran Conference at Ashraf 3, The main compound of the MEK’s members in Albania featured a presentation from the Mayor of Paris’s First District, as well as delegations from Italy, Norway, and the military. Numerous human rights and women’s rights activists also delivered speeches, along with other notable dignitaries.

 

The following are some highlights from speakers:

Michèle de Vaucouleurs

French MP

“The regime has destroyed all that you have owned in Iraq (referring to multiple deadly attacks to Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty by Iranian proxy forces trying to annihilate MEK, the principal opposition to the dictatorship ruling Iran). You have revived and you keep fighting for a democratic Iran against the mullahs. Your battle is not in vain and I know one day you will be hosting me in a free Iran,” said Ms. de Vaucouleurs.

 

“The French people consider you brothers and sisters. Article 2 of the human rights declaration says that the aim of any political group is human rights and that includes the right to resist oppression,” she concluded.

Jean-François Legaret

Mayor of Paris’s 1st District

Mayor Legaret presented a declaration to Ashraf 3, declaring his municipality and Ashraf 3 sister cities. “We have decided to declare Ashraf 3 a city of international dialogue and a sister city of the 1st Arrondissement of Paris. We want to sign a declaration with the mayor of Ashraf 3,” Mayor Legaret said upon presenting the declaration. “We promise to keep a dialogue between our municipalities and Ashraf 3. I’m happy with all my colleagues to give you this declaration.”

Antonio Tasso

Italian MP

“Iranian brothers and sisters, it is our honor to participate in this meeting to celebrate the freedom of speech and thought,” said Tasso.

Roberto Rampi

Italian Senator

“Your dream is guided by President Maryam Rajavi. I had the honor to meet President Rajavi at the meeting last year and I admire her charisma and Ten-point Plan for a Free Iran,” said Rampi.

Giuseppina Occhionero

Italian MP

“Your martyrs sacrificed their lives in order to achieve freedom for Iran. We cannot have appeasement with such a bloodthirsty regime. We must investigate the Iranian regime’s human rights violations,” said Occhionero.

Marc Ginsburg

Former U.S. Ambassador to Morocco

“I worked for Senator Edward Kennedy who taught me that the challenge of helping the people who fight for freedom is a lifetime goal,” said Ambassador Ginsburg. “We believe that we can help you to achieve what you wish to achieve,” he added.

Dr. Salman Al-Ansari

Founder and President of the Washington D.C.-based Saudi-American Public Relation Affairs Committee

“My message for the rotten Khamenei: We know that you are trying to destroy the will of your people and you hide behind the injustice you do by killing and torturing people. But at the end of the day, the ruling mullahs in Iran will be overthrown,” said Dr. Al-Ansari.

Eduard Lintner

Former German Deputy Interior Minister

“Last year, an Iranian diplomat was arrested in Germany because he wanted to bomb a great event by the Iranian Resistance in Paris in which I personally participated,” Lintner said, referring to last year’s attempted bombing of the Free Iran Rally in Paris. “We should not allow the mullahs to keep us hostage and impede and hinder us in your steps forward.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, you are the ones who continuously fight for a free Iran and Europe must support you. Only in this way can we achieve peace in the world,” said Lintner.

Martin Patzelt

German MP

“To my government: We are not allowed to step back and pretend we are blind for the sake of economic interests. We need to support these people who are showing us what is going on,” said Patzelt.

“To the Iranian regime: Don’t think that you will win. I was raised in Eastern Germany, and I have seen when the people want something, they will prevail. This is the experience of my life and I hope we will achieve this together,” he added.

Missiles Attack on Aramco

Iranian regime planned Saudi attacks long before it happened

Missiles Attack on Aramco

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

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

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

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

Iran Attacks Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 What is the logic behind taking such a high risk?

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

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

What is the right approach?

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

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

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

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

A final word

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

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

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

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

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

fatwa issued by regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini

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

Why an Investigation Is Imperative

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

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

Optimism about the Future

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

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

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Witnesses to the 1988 Massacre

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

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

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

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

 

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

Honoring International Peace Day

international_day_of_peace

International Peace Day

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

The most fatal threat to global peace

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

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

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

What is to be done?

As Secretary-General António Guterres sated

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

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

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

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

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

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

Iran’s grizzly organ trade

A wall in Farhang Hosseini alley filled with selling and buying advertisements for body organs.

Thousands of people in Iran are being forced to sell their body parts, including livers, lungs, bone marrow, blood, kidneys, and corneas, on the growing black market, according to opposition activists.

The National Council of Resistance to Iran (NCRI) provided a dossier detailing allegations of the shocking trade, which has turned into a “lucrative business”, to the Daily Star Online.

The Iranian activists, who are living in exile, said that the economic strain in Iran is why thousands of people are desperate enough to sell their organs, which can go for up to $50,000.

NCRI spokesman Shahin Gobadi described this as an “untold catastrophe” and a “systemic problem”.

He added: “The tragedy of Iranians, especially the youths, selling their body parts to survive or to address their own basic needs or those of their families in a country like Iran that has seven percent of the world’s natural resource is an untold catastrophe.”

The dossier includes photos of graffiti, where people have advertised their organs on buildings near hospitals, and a website which advertises the buying and selling of organs via “organ brokers”, who prey on the desperation of both buyer and seller. Messages on this site include:

  • “Hello, I want to see my kidney under the market price”
  • “Willing to sell kidney due to financial problems”
  • “Urgent sale of kidney”
  • “I need the money urgently, I am willing to come anywhere in Iran”
  • “God would damn the owner of this website”

Most of those selling their organs are aged 22-34 and are encouraged to submit their blood group, mobile number and personal details to the broker.

The NCRI spoke to one dealer, who said that organ brokers can earn up to $56,000 a month, who admitted preying on the poor and even the families of “brain-dead patients” in hospitals.
The dealer said: “Most of those who sell their kidneys are from the lower strata of the society. I find them through friends who live in small towns or poor suburbs. Subsequently, they are satisfied and the price is set. Of course, they are introduced as the donor and the acquaintance of the patient to make the job easier.”

Kidneys are the most in-demand, with blood plasma and livers being more expensive. Here is the price per body part on the black market:

  • Kidneys – $5k to $10k
  • Livers – $50k
  • Corneas – $20k
  • Bone marrow – $10k

Tehran is reportedly the center of the organ trade, with an alley known as “Kidney Street” and the area is tagged with numerous A4 sheets of paper counting personal details of people selling their organs.

Resistance and Political Change Will Come from the Depths of Economic Despair

Gobadi said that the Iranian Regime had pillaged the country’s resources and spent billions running “proxy wars” in Yemen, Lebanon, and Syria.

He said: “It is very telling that the painful trend of selling body parts continued and even intensified following the signing of the Iran Nuclear Deal, which released more than 100 billion dollars and enabled the regime to sell more than two million barrels of oil on a daily basis. As the Iranian Resistance said at the time, this windfall was not spent on improving the abysmal living conditions of the Iranian people.”

He continued: “Through embezzlement, theft and astronomical pillaging of these resources, the Iranian regime’s leaders have devoted most of these resources to suppression at home and export of terrorism as well as financing terrorist groups, fomenting proxy wars in the Middle East and working to obtain weapons of mass destruction.”

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

Iran is behind attacks on Saudi oil facilities

Attack on Saudi oil facilities

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is the logic behind taking such high risk?

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

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

What is the right approach?

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

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

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

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

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

Maryam Rajavi: Inaction Emboldens the Regime

Mayam Rajavi

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

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

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

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

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

Maryam Rajavi’s Statement

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

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

The Correct Response to the Regime’s Aggression

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

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

British MPs condemn Iran’s  IRGC and MOIS in Early Day Motion

MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament raise attention about the IRGC

Cross-party MPs at the United Kingdom Parliament have used an Early Day Motion to raise attention about the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and their role in the suppression of the Iranian people.

EDM 2333 strongly condemns the IRGC’s role in oppressing the Iranian people, particularly during anti-government protests, and describes the IRGC as a serious threat to the security, freedom, and welfare of the Iranian people, as well as the peace and stability in the Middle East and the world at large.

The British MPs emphasized that the IRGC and the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are destructive and terrorist actors, citing a long history of their deadly operations, export of terrorism, murder of foreign nationals, and assassination of Iranian dissidents, particularly members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

One case they cited to demonstrate this was the foiled bomb plot against the NCRI’s annual “Free Iran” grand gathering in Paris on June 2018, where 100,000 gathered to support the 10-point plan of NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi to bring freedom to Iran.

The British MPs called on their government to blacklist the IRGC and the MOIS as a foreign terrorist organization, something they say is in the best interests of the Iranian people, the UK, and the international community.

Bob Blackman, the primary sponsor of EDM 2333 and a major supporter of the MEK and NCRI, said in a statement: “The IRGC and MOIS stand at the center of regime’s domestic crackdown and efforts to create an international crisis with increased aggression in the region and terrorism in Europe as the popular protests across Iran that began last year are undermining the theocracy’s survival.”

Sir David Amess, co-chair of the British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF), said: “The EDM, which many of my cross-party colleagues in the House of Commons and I supported, backs the call by NCRI President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi for the designation of IRGC and MOIS as terrorist entities and calls on the Government to proscribe these repressive organs as foreign terrorist organizations in their entirety.”

It is time for the British government and the European Union to listen to these MPs and the Iranian people and take a firm policy against the Regime by imposing sanctions on the IRGC and MOIS, especially given the role of these groups in taking hostage British citizen Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe and seizing a British oil tanker in international waters. It is right that they support the Iranian people’s uprising and their organized Resistance.

Tens of thousands of MEK supporters in Berlin Free Iran Rally

MEK popularity anguishes appeasement advocator

A huge crowd of the supporters of MEK in Berlin

A large crowd of over 15,000 Iranians, supporters of MEK in Berlin, show their solidarity with Iran uprising, during the Free Iran rally- July 6, 2019

Recent changes in the White House caused many reactions with different attitudes. Some still seeking appeasement policy toward Iranian regime took the advantage of this event to show their opposition to a firm policy vis-à-vis the world’s most active state sponsor of terror, religious fascism ruling Iran, and attacking the democratic opposition, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) to justify their support for the terrorist regime of Iran.

Jason Rezaian, a well-known advocator of an appeasement policy, in his Sep 10 Global Opinions column in Washington Post wrote: “The shake-up creates the first real opportunity for Trump to pursue a policy of engaging Iran.”

Mr. Shahin Gobadi, the MEK Press Spokesman in Paris, in an article entitled: “Misplaced and Premature jubilation by an apologist of the murderous mullahs of Iran” discusses this issue.

He challenges the Rezaian’s allegation about MEK and its popularity in Iran writing:

” How does Rezaian know of the true level of support that the MEK enjoys inside Iran under a totalitarian state? What is his measure of sufficient evidence for the MEK’s popularity in a society as complex and repressed as Iran? And how did he conclude that the MEK is reviled by Iranians in a country of over 80 million!? Who are his sources? The Iranian regime and its lobby in the west who want to insinuate that there is no viable alternative to the ruling theocracy and therefore, it must be engaged.”

Tens of thousands of MEK supporters in Berlin Free Iran Rally

Free Iran Rally in Berlin- Nearly 15,000 thousands of supporters of MEK, took to the streets in Berlin to show solidarity with the uprisings in Iran.

” Rezaian’s absurd claim that MEK “can claim no popular support” loses muster in face of the facts on the ground. Outside Iran, where Iranians can express their views without the fear of being persecuted, tens of thousands of MEK supporters held major rallies in five major European capitals, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Stockholm, London and in Washington, DC to call for regime change. Indeed, the three-hour-long rally and march from the State Department to the White House, not only snarled traffic in the nation’s capital for several hours, but it also caught the attention of the mainstream media, save for the Post. Even the White House noticed the elaborate and well-organized rally. “What we want to do is stand with the Iranian people, thousands of whom gathered outside the White House on Friday, and tens of thousands of which, took to the streets last year in communities across Iran, we want to stand with them” Vice President Mike Pence told CBS’s Face the Nation on June 23, 2019.” Mr. Gobadi added.

The Spokesman of the MEK in Paris, argues that advocators of appeasing mullahs, including Rezaian, hardly can understand this reality that the religious dictatorial regime in Iran is in a strategic dead-end.

In conclusion, Mr. Gobadi writes: ” The era when the mullahs could forestall the crisis of being overthrown by relying on appeasement is over. The Iranian street will determine the fate the mullahs, especially since all the propaganda by the likes of Rezaian about Rouhani’s moderation has turned out to be hollow. And if past is prologue, the mullahs’ disastrous 40-year reign has proven that no amount of political and economic concessions will moderate the behavior of this regime. The troglodyte clerics only understand the language of decisiveness and “maximum pressure.”

A shorter version of Mr. Gobadi’s response to Razaian’s allegations appeared in the Washingtonpost.com on September 16.
