    Grave sleepers in Iran, Reflection of regime’s policies. 

     

    Published on Dec 29, 2016

    NCRI – Following the reports published in Shahrvand newspaper on people sleeping in empty graves, officials in Nasirabad, Shahryar, beat the homeless out of the cemetery on Tuesday morning, December 27.

    In a report titled ‘once again, trying to resolve the problem by wiping it out‘, a state newspaper reacted to the event, writing: “following a report in Shahrvand newspaper on people sleeping in empty graves in Nasirabad cemetery in Sharyar, city officials beat the homeless out of the cemetery in an urgent plan on Tuesday morning. This happened while the Governor of Sharyar Saeid Naji had promised in his interview with IRNA news agency that the situation of the homeless sleeping in Nasirabad cemetery in Shahryar will be specially dealt with.”

    Ghanoon newspaper wrote: “interestingly, the city of Baghestan in which Nasirabad Cemetery is located, has the biggest number of drug rehab centers in Tehran province.”
    A number of journalists and people from charities went to Nasirabad Cemetery on Tuesday December 27, to see for themselves the situation of the homeless sleeping in empty graves there, only to be faced with an empty cemetery. After a lot of searching, however, they could finally find one of the so-called grave-sleepers who, with fear and apprehension, told the journalists and charity people: “leave us alone. A group of officials came here early in the morning and beat us out of here, now we don’t have even an empty grave to sleep in.”

    After being kicked out of the cemetery, the homeless took shelter in an unfinished building nearby.

    According to reports, 50 people sleep in empty graves each night. Each empty grave can accommodate up to four people.

    Sheer demagogy 
    On Wednesday December 29, at a session in Tehran. In an act of sheer demagogy Iran regime’s president Rouhani stated “Who can accept that dozens of his countrymen who have suffered social ills take refuge to graves at night because of homelessness?” and continued: “We had heard that some due to addiction, poverty, and destitution, sleep in the streets, sleep under bridges,… But we had rarely heard of grave sleepers. We had rarely heard that a poor person, sleeps in a grave due to poverty and destitution.

    In this regard Rouhani should answer a simple question: why instead of spending tens of billions of dollars of unfrozen assets, in Syria to massacre the residents of Aleppo, continuing internal suppression & missile production? And letting mullahs to plunder a major part of this national wealth you did nothing to provide a simple shelter for these helpless people?

    Justice, Iranian style: Brutal public hangings to crackdown on dissent 

    Dissenters pay ultimate price through capital punishment, should they speak out against the clerical regime. (File photo: Reuters)

    Iran’s present administration can only be described as a terrorist regime, which uses various violent methods with which to intimidate the population, showing the citizens of cities, towns and villages across the country, how dissenters will pay the ultimate price through capital punishment, should they speak out against the clerical regime, and the most visual form of terror comes in the shape of public hangings.

    Cranes are frequently used in executions, with the victim hauled upwards by the neck, to ensure that his neck isn’t broken in a swift kill, and that the agony is prolonged. Where in cases of makeshift gallows, the condemned is stood on a tub or suchlike, and to ensure gradual strangulation and a slow death, the object they are standing on is kicked from beneath them, and the fall is a short one.

    Such are the twisted minds that set up these executions, they ensure that young children stand to watch these macabre events with the rest of the crowd, quite often. The younger siblings of teenagers view the execution of their loved one, who dies in agony as asphyxiation slowly shuts down the brain.

    Symbols of death

    In civilized countries of the world, cranes are a symbol of construction and ongoing development. In Iran they are symbols of death, and secret isolated graves, where loved ones are forbidden to tend them. These varied makeshift hanging trees, are most often found in the centre of towns and villages across the land, where countless numbers of dissidents meet their fate, their only crime; to speak out against a regime that shows no mercy to dissenters.

    No sooner had Khomeini come to power, Iran’s prison and “legal” system had become the main method with which to eradicate political opponents, while at the same time instil terror into the population at large through public hangings.

    With Iran having no legal system like that of the civilized world, if you cross the clerical regime by speaking out; you become a prime target for imprisonment, torture and death.

    Maryam Rajavi’s Christmas and New Year’s Greetings 

     

    Maryam-Rajavi--Christmas.jpg

    Merry Christmas to all Christians in Iran and around the world.
    Christmas is the day of joy, hope and salvation of mankind.
    We also admire the Virgin Mary on this day, who inspires all women, particularly the oppressed women of the world.
    Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
    This is why many Christians from all across the world support the Iranian Resistance.
    Inspired by his message, the Iranian resistance wants to establish a society based on freedom, equality and separation of religion and state.
    In the future Iran followers of all religions including Christians are equal and free and are no longer harassed.
    On this Christmas Eve we wish that the liberating message of Jesus Christ would embrace my oppressed people.
    With the same hope, I wish a happy New Year in 2017 for all nations especially in the Middle East and the innocent people of Syria.
    May 2017 be a year of freedom for my country Iran.
    I call on every one to join in solidarity with the Iranian people’s Resistance; for freedom and democracy, and to start a new chapter in the life of all the peoples of the region.

    SYRIA: MEK exposing new details on the Iranian regime’s involvement in occupying the city of Aleppo 

    Shahin Gobadi, spokesman of the main Iranian opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), exposing new details on the Iranian regime’s involvement in occupying the city of Aleppo, Syria. Gobadi provided details on the number of Iranian forces in Aleppo, identified their commander and the operational command headquarters.

    Shahin Gobadi, spokesman of the main Iranian opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), exposing new details on the Iranian regime’s involvement in occupying the city of Aleppo, Syria.

    Gobadi provided details on the number of Iranian forces in Aleppo, identified their commander and the operational command headquarters.  He said Iranian Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias were implicated in the most atrocious war crimes and crimes against humanity in the 21st century in Aleppo.

    Fox News has obtained information stating that Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) fighters are currrently in control of ground operations in Aleppo. This would confirm previous reports stating that Iran was in charge of a broad Shi’ite militia comprised of Lebanese Hezbollah fighters, Iraqi militias, and other Shi’ite soldiers from throughout the Middle East.

    Iran has also sent countless Afghan migrants as mercenary ground soldiers to fight anonymously on behalf of the Assad regime.

    On Tuesday, government ministers from Russia, Turkey and Iran met to discuss the future of Syria now that Aleppo has been definitively retaken by Assad’s forces. According to a Turkish official, the countries held the meeting to “understand the views of all three sides, laying out where we all stand and discuss where we go from here.”

    The meeting made explicit Iran’s role in the conflict, which has not received the same level of attention as Russia’s sustained air bombing campaign, which began in September.

    Iran’s military aid to Assad may constitute the vast majority of ground forces in Aleppo today.

    According to detailed information obtained by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Tehran has established a military headquarters facility 20 miles southeast of Aleppo from which it creates and enacts military plans for the Syrian conflict.

    The reports stated that Javad Ghafari, commander of the Quds Force (the foreign component of the IRGC), has been enacting the plans of IRGC chief Qassem Soleimani, who has been at the head of all Iranian involvement in the Syrian conflict.

    The two men recently met with Assad, cementing the already-firm ties between the three.

    “This report leaves no doubt that the Iranian regime is the primary obstacle to any solution in Syria,” Shahin Gobadi, said in a statement with FoxNews.com.

    “The current situation in Aleppo and the role of the Iranian regime in the atrocities committed on the ground require the immediate expulsion of the IRGC and its mercenaries from Syria. By meddling in other countries the mullahs try to cover up their vulnerability at home. The survival of the [Iranian] regime has been intertwined with maintaining the Assad dictatorship in power in Syria.”

    Additional reports have suggested that the Quds Force have also organized an umbrella group to control several Iraqi militias fighting in Syria.

    U.S. officials have thus far refused to comment on Iran’s role in the ongoing conflict in Aleppo.

    Iran opposition group says Tehran responsible for fall of Aleppo 

     

    Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps built network of bases and amassed 25,000 troops in and around Aleppo, report says

    Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has played a significant role in retaking Aleppo from rebel fighters, a report by an Iranian opposition group says.

    “The forces that occupied Aleppo were actually the IRGC and foreign mercenaries under their command,” said Shahin Gobadi, a member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in a video conference widely circulated on Wednesday.

    Gobadi identified the Lebanese Hezbollah, Iraqi militias, the Afghan Fatimiyoon militias and the Pakistani Zeynabiyoon militias as the main forces under IRGC command in Aleppo.

    The NCRI is part of the People’s Mujahiden of Iran or MEK, the largest opposition group to the Iranian government. The video seems to have been a follow-up to a report collated by the MEK and released to The Washington Times on Tuesday.

    The MEK has established a track record of accurately reporting misdeeds by Tehran over the past decade, including its attempts to hide nuclear weapons-related facilities from UN inspectors.

    How opposition collated report

    For this report, the MEK relied on its network of spies inside the government and IRGC to paint a picture of Iran’s deep military involvement in the Syrian conflict.

    “The fact is that Aleppo has been occupied by the IRGC and its mercenaries,” MEK told The Washington Times on Tuesday. “Mass executions, preventing the transfer of civilians, including women and children, [and] attacking civilians has all been done by the forces of the mullah’s regime.”

    According to the report: “The obstruction to the transfer of residents out of Aleppo and the two incidents of the killing of residents over two consecutive days were perpetuated by the IRGC and their mercenaries,” said Gobadi.

    A convoy of about 800 people was taken hostage and four people were killed at a Hezbollah checkpoint near Ramoussah on Friday. The situation was repeated in a similar incident on Tuesday when a convoy leaving Aleppo was stalled for nearly 24 hours amid delays in the evacuation of the two Shia villages of Foua and Kefraya in Idlib province.

    Iran brutalizing Aleppo, executing ‘most atrocious war crimes’ of 21st century 

    Aleppo.jpg

    By Rowan Scarborough

    Iran’s brutal Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force has played an extensive role in the rape of Aleppo, building a network of bases around the Syrian city and directing militiamen from Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan to do the killing, an Iranian opposition group says in a new intelligence report.

    “The fact is that Aleppo has been occupied by the IRGC and its mercenaries,” says the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, or MEK, the largest opposition group to the Islamic mullahs who rule Iran. “Mass executions, preventing the transfer of the civilians, including women and children, [and] attacking the civilians has all been done by the forces of the mullahs’ regime.”

    The MEK says in its report provided to The Washington Times that the Corps has amassed an army of 25,000 Iranian and militia troops in and around the burned and cratered Aleppo. These include homegrown Syrian mercenaries who receive cash transferred from Tehran to Damascus.

    Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, which includes MEK, said Tehran’s actions show a “complicity in the most atrocious war crimes and crimes against humanity in the 21st century.”

    The U.N. puts the overall death toll in Syria’s civil war at 400,000. More than 30,000 have died in the Battle of Aleppo, a last urban rebel holdout against President Bashar Assad’s regime.

    “The blood for these atrocities are on their hands,” President Obama said last week of Iran, Russia and the Syrian regime.
