Masoud Dalvand (Freedom Star): On January 10, during a trip to the Middle East, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the American University of Cairo in Egypt delivered a keynote speech on key issues in the Middle East.

Pompeo mentioned important points in this address on Iran.


In this regard, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, issued an important statement and on behalf of the Iranian resistance, articulated the demands that had been emphasized since 1981.

Therefore, in the current situation in cities throughout Iran for more than a year, protests and strikes by different classes of the people are under way to change the regime of religious dictatorship and the establishment of freedom, democracy and justice, it is necessary to pay attention to this important statement of the leadership of the resistance of Iran. The right of the Iranian people to resist and achieve freedom after 40 years of the Mullahs dictatorship must be recognized.

I draw your attention to this important statement.

‌The U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo declared in Cairo that the United States will no longer protect Iran’s ruling mullahs. He said, “We joined the Iranian people in calling for freedom and accountability.” Therefore, “The age of self-inflicted American shame is over, and so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering.”

The U.S. Secretary of State reiterated that when America partners with enemies such as the mullahs, “they advance.”

Maryam Rajavi welcomed the United States’ distancing itself from policies whose first victims have been the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance.

She once again underscored the fact that gaining access to weapons of mass destruction, violations of human rights, export of fundamentalism, and terrorism are the four pillars of the theocratic regime ruling Iran.

The ultimate solution for getting rid of the mullahs’ religious fascism in Iran, is changing this illegitimate regime at the hands of the Iranian people and Resistance.

Recognition of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, as the sole democratic alternative to the terrorist religious dictatorship in Iran, is imperative to rectifying and ending the disastrous U.S. policy of appeasement over the past four decades. The clerical regime which holds the world’s record in executions will only understand the decisive language of force.

On behalf of the Iranian Resistance which has called for arms and oil embargo of the mullahs’ religious dictatorship since 1981, Maryam Rajavi reiterated on the need to take the following steps:

1. Recognition of the Iranian people’s right to resistance to overthrow the mullahs’ religious fascism and achieve freedom;

2. Designation of the IRGC (Revolutionary Guard Corps) and the MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence and Security) in their entireties as terrorist entities by the U.S. and the European Union;

3. Expulsion of the mullahs’ intelligence agents and mercenaries of the terrorist Qods Force from the U.S. and Europe;

4. Referring the dossier of human rights violations in Iran to the UN Security Council after 65 United Nations censures;

5. Supporting the referral of the dossier of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran to the International Court;

6. Ouster of the mullahs’ illegitimate regime from the UN and recognition of representation by the Iranian people’s just Resistance;

7. Decisive expulsion of Iran’s ruling religious fascism and its forces from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan;

8. Compelling the government of Iraq to pay compensation for the properties, equipment, arms and base camps the PMOI/MEK and the National Liberation Army of Iran (NLA) had fully paid for and whose documents are available.
