MEK Iran: Regime Withdraws from Nuclear Deal

Iran Nuclear Deal

The Iran Regime took the final step away from the JCPOA; it will remove limits on centrifuges, uranium enrichment, and nuclear research and development.

On Sunday, January 6, 2020, Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani announced in a statement that the clerical regime would take the fifth and final step in walking away from its commitments under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), informally known as the Iran nuclear deal.

Iranian regime steps forward in violating its nuclear deal with world powers

Iranian regime steps forward in violating its nuclear deal with world powers

Iran has further endangered world peace this week by violating its nuclear deal with world powers for a fourth time by putting an additional 30 advanced centrifuges into use. Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, made the announcement to state news media on Monday.

The next day, president of Mullahs, Hassan Rouhani, said the Iranian regime would begin injecting uranium gas into over a thousand centrifuges at Fordo – a fortified nuclear facility hidden in a mountain – on Wednesday.

 

However, he said that the step is reversible and that the regime is ready to “negotiate”. This backpedaling contradicts with remarks by supreme leader Ali Khamenei, who said on Sunday that negotiations will only weaken the already-fragile regime.

These contradictions are the result of a regime besieged by crises and struggling to maintain consistency. The only consistent thing about the regime is that it will threaten world peace and security in order to prolong its grasp on power.

The regime’s nuclear policy appears even more muddled when you consider that Iran’s sole purpose for the nuclear deal was to extract concessions from the international community.

Since the US pulled out of the deal last year, citing Iranian noncompliance, Europe has mostly tried to appease Iran, even setting up a program to evade US sanctions on Iran with the only conditions being that Iran complied with the nuclear deal and committed to financial transparency under the Financial Action Task Force. It wasn’t a big ask, considering that Iran was supposed to do this anyway, but Iran publically failed to do either.

Therefore, European officials have condemned the regime and warned them against continuing to renege on its obligations, with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas describing the latest step as “unacceptable” and British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said that Iran’s actions “contravene the deal and pose a risk to our national security”.

So why would Iran take this step? Well, the regime is facing mass protests in Iraq and Lebanon over its interference in those countries and people there are demanding the expulsion of Iran’s terrorist proxies. Meanwhile, the Iranian people’s uprising is continuing with various segments of society demanding freedom. None of this was mentioned by Rouhani, Khamenei, or Salehi.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran and Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) stressed that: “As the avalanche of protests continues to bear down, Khamenei and his regime find themselves increasingly cornered and without a way out.  What Khamenei said—and didn’t say—tell much about the strategic deadlock that is closing in on his regime and the deadly crises he and his regime are faced with.

Struan Stevenson holds his book "Self Sacrifice"

The mullahs begin to panic in the face of a disintegrating nuclear deal

Struan Stevenson holds his book "Self Sacrifice"

Struan Stevenson, Former MEP and the Coordinator of Campaign for Iran Change, holds his book on his experience with MEK, “Self Sacrifice”.

On June 6th, UPI published an article from Struan Stevenson entitled, “Iran’s mullahs press the panic button”. In the article, Struan Stevenson describes the anxiety and panic evident in the Iranian regime following the collapse of the nuclear deal.

Following the US withdrawal from the deal, European companies faced a decision: continue trading with Iran and risk the wrath of the US State Department or follow suit and cut ties. As it looks increasingly inevitable that European companies are going to follow the lead of the US, Stevenson suggests that the mullahs have “pressed the panic button”.

Mitigating Losses

In a desperate attempt to salvage the deal, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammad Javad Zarif pleaded with the EU to “make up for Iran’s losses”. His comments were echoed by the supreme leader Khamenei.

Khamenei initiated work on a new centrifuge-assembly center. The site at Natanz was one of the many top-secret nuclear sites exposed by the People’s Mujahedin Organisation of Iran (MEK).

The Flawed Deal

The nuclear deal that Khamenei and the mullahs are so desperately trying to save was flawed from the outset. It removed sanctions against the Iranian regime and unlocked more than US$150 billion in financing for the regime. Rather than spend this money investing in its people or economic future, instead the regime plowed the money into destabilizing the Middle East. The Iranian regime exported their Quds Force and Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps to carry out their brand of violence and terrorism in other conflicts in the region.

The violent, terror groups have been present in the Syrian and Iraq conflicts. According to Stevenson, the Iranian regime has also funneled funds to Houthi rebels in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Violence at Home

The regime’s brand of violence and repression has not only been present abroad. At home, the mullahs used the money to crack down on dissidents and public protests. In his article, Stevenson described how recent months have seen vast uprisings taking place across Iran, involving truck drivers, civil servants, teachers, investors, and laborers.

The regime’s response has been brutal. Hundreds of dissidents have been killed and executed. More than 8,000 have been arrested and detained by the regime, several of which have been tortured while in custody.

Human rights organizations have condemned the Iranian clerical regime. Iran now leads the world in state executions per capita, with more than half of global state executions taking place on Iranian soil. The situation has deteriorated so much that seven Iranian prisoners wrote an open letter to the government, risking their lives by calling hanging “murder by the government, in all circumstances”.

European silence

Despite the appalling situation in Iran and destabilizing effect the regime is having on the wider Middle East region, European governments have been reluctant to cut ties with the Iranian regime. Stevenson says European companies “will secure new, rich business deals, while political prisoners dangle from the gallows.” The EU seems content to put financial gain above Iranian human rights, he emphasized.

Stevenson, as well as the MEK and the leader of Iran opposition, Maryam Rajavi, have urged the EU to acknowledge the severity of the situation in Iran. The Iranian regime brokers terrorism across the Middle East, causing thousands of deaths both in Iran and abroad.

The nuclear deal was inadequate. It gave concessions to the regime but failed to prevent them advancing their nuclear ambitions or curbing their missile programs. Stevenson finished his article by urging the European nations to back the Iranian people instead of the regime. He said, “we should back the Iranian people who want rid of this fascist dictatorship and who yearn for Iran to become a peaceful and prosperous partner in the global family of nations.”

Financing Terrorism,JCPOA,MEK,Nuclear Deal

Sigal Mandelker - In charge of OFAC, discusses Iranian regime's illegal activities to fund terrorism.

U.S. Sanctions Could Lead to International Pressure Against Regime

Sigal Mandelker - In charge of OFAC, discusses Iranian regime's illegal activities to fund terrorism.

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker describes how the Iranian regime finances unethical activities at home and abroad.

On Tuesday, June 5th, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, gave a speech to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. The Washington, D.C.-based think tank asked Ms. Mandelker to describe how the Iranian regime finances unethical activities at home and abroad. According to Mandelker, the Iranian regime has consistently supported terrorism, destabilized the Middle East, and carried out human rights abuses against its own people, even while the Iran nuclear deal, signed in 2015, was in effect. The MEK had stated from its inception, that the deal was weak and ineffective.

 

Ms. Mandelker’s remarks took place almost one month after President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, and two weeks after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed the U.S.’s new plan for Iran, which he said would include “the strongest sanctions in history” if Iran failed to curtail its objectionable activities.”

 

Ms. Mandelker also pointed out that secondary sanctions would be issued against any European businesses who continue to do business with Iran while using the U.S. financial system. In her speech she said, “We will hold those doing prohibited business in Iran to account.”

 

Ms. Mandelker appealed to the global conscience of democratic nations when she said that Tehran exploits “the global financial system, as well as country after country around the world” to finance its activities. She warned that these countries might become an unwitting accomplice to Iranian atrocities by allowing their national wealth to be used by the regime.

Maryam Rajavi’s position on Secretary Pompeo’s speech on Iran Deal – May 21, 2018

Two weeks after President Trump’s landmark decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, used his first public message to call for a united international response to the threat posed by the Iranian regime. Maryam Rajavi, leader of the People’s Mujahedin Organisation of Iran (MEK) and President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), expressed her position  on Secretary Pompeo ’s speech.

In his speech, Mike Pompeo outlined the reasons why the US felt compelled to withdraw from the deal. He cited the large sums of “blood money” awarded to the regime. He also raised American concerns over the deals inability to stop the regime’s uranium enrichment, the lack of access to nuclear sites, and the continued development of ballistic missile systems. He went on to appeal for a deal which would end close these loopholes, as well as one which would end the illicit funding for terrorist groups abroad and prevent the regime from interfering in the Syrian conflict.

Pompeo also acknowledged the progress made by the Iranian public in its speech. He said the protests “show that the Iranian people are deeply frustrated with their own government failures”.

Responding to Pompeo’s speech, Maryam Rajavi applauded the significance of Pompeo’s acknowledgment of the Iranian protest movement. She stressed that “forming an international front against the religious and terrorist dictatorship in Iran is requisite for the establishment of peace, security and coexistence in the region and world over.”

Many of the criticisms of the 2015 nuclear deal that Mike Pompeo aired in his speech had been stated by Maryam Rajavi herself in the past. In 2013, she expressed the need for a deal which completely halted uranium enrichment and called for “unhindered access to suspected nuclear centers and facilities”.

After the deal came into effect in 2015, she also warned the international community that the agreement would do little to block the mullah’s progression towards becoming a nuclear state. She also warned that the money awarded to the regime under the terms of the agreement would be misspent. She said, “Khamenei will use these funds to further the regime’s policy of export of terrorism and fundamentalism in Syria”.

It seems the US Secretary of State has now publicly acknowledged these concerns.
