    Necessity to Form the Resistance Units of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran(PMOI/MEK) 

    By Masoud Dalvand

    Why the Resistance Units were formed; and what are they pursued?
    What are their activities and what are they doing?
    What is the response of the Mullah’s regime to Resistance Units?
    What is the effect of the Resistance Units on the uprising of the Iranian people (Iran Protests) and how it affects the regime’s relations with other countries?

    The fact is that the Iranian society is under a repressive and religious dictatorship system that has spread poverty and misery throughout Iran by its disgraceful rule.

    The regime that has pushed the country’s economy with warfare and export of crises and terrorism to the Middle East and the rest of the world. The regime that with the unprecedented plundering of the Iranian people’s wealth and resources, and the widespread corruption of all the regime’s officials and agents, to the worst situation in the last 40 years has achieved.
    Ignoring the freedom and basic rights of the people of Iran and responding to any protest speech with execution and torture. Half of the society, women, are under the most severe repressions and they are deprived of their lowest human rights.

    The regime that destroyed Iran’s nature and environment and many Iranian lakes and rivers and forests have also been destroyed by the regime’s predatory policies or have been subjected to complete destruction … This list continues.
    On the other hand, in Iran, the criminal gangs of this regime call their so-called “reformist!” and “Hardliner!” for the continuation of this dictatorship, which is, of course, more deceptive, and last year, people chanted on the street: “Reformist, Hardliner, the game is over!”,

    So now what should be done?

    Resistance Units have been created to change and remove this dark page from Iranian history, have three main duties in the Iranian society:

    • The first objective of the Resistance Units is to break the so called the “power” of the regime, which apparently wants to say that its power is still not broken. The rule of corruption, poverty and tyranny, with its repressive organs, like Basij’s militia, and centers of the Mullahs, which are centers of crime and corruption, yes, all of this will be crushed by the Resistance Units.
    PMOI-MEK “Resistance Units” setting fire to bases of the regime’s crackdown apparatus
    • The second goal of the Resistance Units is that return the morale of the people, which is due to the suppression and misery is damaged, so when the activities of the Resistance Units are carried out, people get the strength and strength of the heart. When such a thing emits in society, when people see such activities, they are samples for and people learn from them. It’s a way that show to the people who can join to the Resistance Units too. The role of the Resistance Units has now created a movement and activity in people, especially women and youth. Now, after more than a year of activity of the Resistance Units, the people themselves become active, and there are many activities on the Iranian scene that have been inspired by Resistance Units and have not been recorded or filmed.
    • Another goal to create and operate the Resistance Units, is Internationally purpose. All those who are still eyeing to inside this regime and wanting to continue an appeasement policy with this regime, and in reality they want to keep our people under this dictatorship corrupt, these Resistance Units and their activities reveal that the era of appeasement with this regime has come to an end and that they can no longer continue this trend. Therefore, the activities of Resistance Units are important in this regard.

    A look at the activities of the resistance units, especially after the Iranian uprising in December 2017 and January 2018 and its persistence over the past year in various kinds of protests and strikes by different classes of people in cities throughout Iran, indicates the success of the MEK’s strategy of resistance units. A strategy soon expanding the protests and leading these resistance units to overthrow the evil dictatorship of the Velayat-e Faqih and establish freedom and democracy and human rights and justice.

    Many Believe That Iran Regime Will Soon Come to an End 

    Masoud Dalvand – Freedom Star:

    The official website of the National Council of Resistance of Iran published an article from a journalist inside Iran. In this article, the state of the mullahs in Iran and its future are discussed. Since there is useful information in the article on this topic, I invite you to read this article.

    Many Believe That Iran Regime Will Soon Come to an End

    Written by Staff Writer on 29 March 2019.

    The following is translated excerpt of an article by an Iranian journalist from inside Iran.

    In some of the most recent discussions on economics, I realised that the majority of Iranians strongly believe that the current political and social changes are indicative of an upcoming downfall of the clerical regime in Iran, which is not so surprising. Interestingly, the majority also agree that not long is left till then, which both excites and scares many.

    Doubt

    With regards to certain changes within the market, such as the drop in national currency value, an experienced engineering graduate from a well-known university, states that “I don’t think the Iranian regime will last another election”. Whilst addressing his younger colleague, he continues “someone else will replace Rouhani, which will trigger another protest, but this time nothing can be done about it”. The younger colleague responds “Rouhani won’t last for 4 years, he’s finished!”.

    No water or dollar

    The other thing that is often heard amongst Iranians is that “this country has no water or dollar” … referring to the water crisis as well as the fact that “there are no jobs”, “insurances are bankrupt”, and that “people are the actual victims of the wars between Iran and other governments”.

    A sarcastic statement of some guy also stands out: “who said we have nothing? We have a lot of things! We have theft, plunder, promiscuity, and even better, mullahs who have nothing better to do than steal from us!”

    Another is heard saying “This country is far from happy. Everyone’s smile is constantly wiped off their face because the dollar price goes up, a concert gets cancelled, or Mullah Alamolhoda (Friday prayer leader of Mashhad) says another frustrating nonsense”

    Others say:

    “our global reputation is embarrassing”, “we are all hopeless”, “even our harlots are struggling to make money now”, “what have our innocent children done to deserve this?”, “we had to be grown up in war and now, our children also have to grow up in war”

    Assumptions

    In one of the recent news, Mullah Javadi Amoli warns the government officials of the risk of being “pushed into the sea”.

    Addressing the Ministry of labour, Amoli complains: “why can many infidels run their country successfully, but we fail despite having historical religious leaders like Imam Hossein, Imam Ali, and so forth”. Adding that “if people protest again, we’ll all be thrown into the sea. Some officials are preparing to or have already ran away, but the rest of us are at risk as we have nowhere to go”.

    From the many things that we’ve heard from Iranian residents, three prominent phrases indicate the prospect of an upcoming overthrown:

    1. “the end to Rouhani’s government”

    2. The end of Trump’s first round

    3. Trump’s second round

    Despite the risk of war (ie a military attack on Iran) slowly building, the regime is most at risk from its internal economic and political crises. In many eyes, the regime won’t last for long at all, as it’s comprised of incapable and ineffective managers.

    National currency is one of the most commonly discussed issues of today. Many believe that the higher dollar value rises to, the closer the regime gets to its end. One Iranian says “If dollar goes upto 10000 Toman, things will get out of control”; another one says “If dollar goes over 7000 Toman, no one will be able to take control of this mess anymore”.

    Regardless of their economic accuracy, these are concerns that worry many Iranians today.

     A resident from Golpayegan

    “In the past, dollar value used to go up only once a year; today, it increases by 500 Toman by the day. Which is why I don’t see how our country can last”

     An Azeri person

    “let’s just assume that dollar is still 6000 Toman; even then, this would mean that Iranian workers earn less than 200 dollar a month, which is equivalent to around 6 or 7 dollars a day; which is the price of a pizza in US”.

     A single employed woman

    “We work hard hoping to save and improve our lives independently; but the truth is so far from this. Our income is reducing every month, which leaves us feeling frustrated and hopeless”.

     An Owner of a small scarf shop

    “If dollar goes up to even 10000 Toman, we still have oil. So the dollar price is irrelevant at the end of the day; the actual issue is that the money we earn from our oil sales gets spent on Syria and Iraq, instead of our own people”.

     A university student

    “I wished that the government left us alone… but they don’t, and on top of that, they spend our money on Lebanon and Syria; leaving us in more and more struggles everyday”.

    Certainty in regime’s overthrown and fear of future

    Many Iranians are now expressing their certainty in a quickly approaching downfall of the regime.

     A taxi driver

    “even the government itself clearly knows that its days will soon be over”

    But many also express their fear of what’s to come next. They worry that the history of 2009 and/or Dec 2017, or a combination of both, will repeat itself.

     A manager of a business company

    “The government must be delusional to think that it’s still wanted, because it’s not. Majority of Iranians are against them”

     A retiree

    “A revolution or war will make things worse as everything will get out of control. However, when I think about the possibility of us heading to where Iraq did in the past, i.e., resorting to oil for food programmes and so forth, I’d rather if we get everything over and done with now with a revolution”.

     A sobbing woman

    “sometimes I wonder what I’ve done to have to suffer this much. I was born in 1978, but wish that I was not born, or at least, born somewhere else. We’ve had enough. Why aren’t they (i.e., the regime) tired of torturing us for so long?”

    According to a liberal activist, Iranians fear change because they fear the consequences that may follow.

    “the outcome of a revolution is not exactly known, which terrifies many people”

     A marxist activist

    “only prisoners of Auschwitz concentration camp would know what Iranians are going through. They (regime) have treated us however they’ve wanted for so long and have distracted us with their so-called elections for at least 20 years. But the truth is that the oppressive Revolutionary Guards and Judicial System are the actual ones in charge” adding that “our own people as well as others from around the world, can’t wait to see this regime leave. We are all so focused on this that the aftermath isn’t even a concern anymore. We are prepared for millions of us to die to achieve freedom. Reformists are so power hungry that they won’t hesitate to kill that many, just like they did in 1980s”.

     A reformist student

    believes that the global pressure on Iran is a good opportunity for “the Supreme Leader to replace the current government with one like Khatami’s – which would be more democratic and capable of making proper improvements – to prevent the potential damages that may result from a revolution instead”.

     A secretary of an insurance company

    “can someone (from the regime) try to understand that their conflict with other countries like (referring to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and US) doesn’t have anything to do with us?!”

     A sales person of a pharmacy

    “In case of a revolution, I and others who use bank investments to pay for various instalments and expenses, may not be able to withdraw or transfer our funds at all; as they (regime figures) can easily run away with our money. Which is why we would have been better off investing on gold or dollar instead”.

     An owner of a car exhibition

    “today, almost everyone is aware that the government isn’t going to last; they (government) are stealing as much as they can and just running away. Vice-President Jahangiri has reported of a 30-billion-dollar currency flee from Iran. Here in this exhibition we have 8.5 billion Toman worth of cars; I can’t even comprehend how much 30 billion dollars would be… it’s a significant amount” …” let’s imagine that people set everything, from banks, to guards, to mullahs, to this exhibition even, on fire. What then? I asked the son-in-law of a friend of mine (who is a political prisoner) if he knows who will replace this government and he had no idea” …” we watch different a lot of TV every day but are yet to see someone who looks like they know what they’re doing”

     An engineer who earns 1.5 million Toman

    “Since December last year, I’ve put aside half a litre of liquor for when the regime leaves; I don’t care who replaces them or what happens next, but the day they leave – which I often fantasize about – we will drink and party all night till the sunrise”

     A 38-year-old woman

    says that she fears the changes that are expected to “happen soon”: “we have wasted so much of our lives in this country. So much so that we’re all willing to pay whatever the price is. We all yearn for the day that we can wear whatever we want, and for the day that the world doesn’t look at us as terrorists. I myself would pay whatever price just to stop the judges from calling me a slut in front of my own mother” …” whatever we lose, it will all be worth it, because we will for once be rest assured that other privileged families (those of regime figures) will no longer be able to plunder; and that our national funds will no longer be spent on Hezbollah, rockets, and so forth. I’m hopeful for better days ahead”.

    Enlightenment Tips on the Destructive Flood in Iran 

    By Masoud Dalvand Freedom Star

    There are a few important points and questions about destructive flood in Iran. The answers to these questions can show why the extent of destruction has been so widespread.

    As Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said in her message to Iranian people regarding the flood;

    This disaster once again proved that the ruling mullahs’ criminal 40-year policy of plunder and pillage has taken a heavy toll on the lives and livelihood of our people in every flood and earthquake.
    Why did so many of our fellow compatriots die and get injured in Shiraz after just a 10-minute rainfall, with such huge destruction?

    The corrupt mullahs have inflicted this catastrophe on Shiraz and its valiant people. They destroyed the channel which used to lead flood waters out. In the dry seasonal river bed beside Darvazeh Quran, they built urban facilities to gain huge profits for themselves and their accomplice.

    In Golestan Province, it has been several years that they have failed to dredge the Gorgan River. They have destroyed vast parts of the forests and pastures, and they have evaded to drain the farms and manage the watershed.

    In other cities, they have constructed buildings in the periphery of rivers or have blocked the natural paths of rivers. In implementing such a corrupt policy, they have taken over, damaged or sold river banks, sea shores, foothills of mountains, and jungles which are public properties.

    Amid the disastrous flood and such vast devastation, there is not much presence of aid workers and relief agencies. Instead, the mullahs have dispatched the Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Bassij paramilitary force to quell the outbreak of protests.

    Shiraz needs emergency aid for the injured and assistance to clear the ruins and rubble, but Rouhani hastily sends there his Minister of Intelligence and his mafia of executions, suppression and terror. 

    This is not the first time that Shiraz is facing heavy rainfalls. However, in recent years, the non-regulatory construction of roads and buildings by the IRGC and other bodies of the regime have resulted in obstructing the traditional network of rainwater that protects the city for hundreds of years, and allowed the overflow of water through the main gate of the city.

    The residents of Shiraz insist that provincial authorities have not taken recent weather warnings seriously and have not evacuated residents or banned traffic through the Ghoran gate.
    In addition to the province of Fars, dozens of people have also lost their lives or been injured in the provinces of Lorestan, Khuzestan, Sistan-Baluchestan, Isfahan, Bushehr, Ilam, Kermanshah, Golestan and other parts of the country. 
    In Sarpol-Zohab, a city hit last year by an earthquake, the floods washed away the tents and prefabs of a population that had already been severely damaged, neglected by the regime.
    The situation in the city of Ahvaz is critical, with a strong flood of the river Karoun. As in Lorestan, where the Poleh-Dokhtar River has overflowed.

    Maryam Rajavi affirmed that the mullahs’ regime and its corrupt leaders as well as its Pasdaran Army (IRGC) have intensified to the utmost the effects of this destructive flood through the destruction of the environment, and have rendered the Iranian cities and villages to ruins by plundering the people’s belongings and wasting them in projects of repression, terrorism and war mongering as well as anti-Iranian nuclear and missile programs, depriving them of the least infrastructure to defend against natural disasters like earthquakes and floods.

    Iranian New Year Looks Bleak for Regime 

    Masoud Dalvand(Freedom Star):

    The conditions of the Iranian regime in the new Iranian year, which began March 21, is a very difficult situation.

    Economically, with the withdrawal of the United States from JCPOA(Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), and economic and oil sanctions, the mullahs’ regime is in a situation that see itself in the face of a deadlock and disappointment.
    The editorial board of the official website of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has published an instructive article that invites you to read it.

    Iranian New Year Looks Bleak for Regime

    During the past year, the Iranian regime has been struggling to keep control over a number of issues. One such issue is the country’s economy. Last year, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be exiting the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and that tough economic sanctions would be re-instated.

    Throughout 2018, the U.S. President and his administration have been paying close attention to the Iranian regime and its belligerence in the region.

    The U.S. State Department called on all countries to decrease their imports of Iranian oil to zero. Most countries have completely complied with the request and some of the biggest importers of Iranian oil have been granted extensions.

    The Iranian economy took a hit and has been suffering for a number of months now. The people of Iran are getting poorer and poorer and an increasing number of people are falling into extreme poverty.

    A number of regime officials have tried to portray the image of a country that is recovering from the effect of the sanctions. President Hassan Rouhani said during his recent visit to Iraq that Iran had overcome the challenge of the U.S. sanctions. This could not be further from the truth.

    The Leader of the Iranian regime, Ali Khamenei, admitted in a New Year message that the people of Iran have struggled in recent months. He said that the country’s economy is an extremely urgent issue – the “primary” concern for the country.

    Not only has the Iranian currency lost significant value, but the purchasing power of the people has seriously declined. Reports from the country indicate that people have had to remove meat from their diets for the sole reason that they can’t afford it.

    The people of Iran are currently in the midst of Nowruz, or Persian New Year, celebrations, and again, many people are unable to afford the usual fare that they traditionally purchase.

    It is noticeable that simultaneously widespread activities of the Resistance Units and waves of discontent in the forms of strikes, protest gatherings and demonstrations are continuing across the country.

    The regime’s Leader said that the motto for the new year is “national production”. Yet, the chance of this being able to recover the economy is very slim. The Iranian regime, over the years, has completely destroyed the country’s economy and it has not taken any steps to remedy the situation.

    Corruption is rife at all levels of leadership and it has destroyed the trust of the people. Instead of improving social services, taking care of the critical environmental issues and taking steps to win back the confidence of the people, the regime has continued to plunder the nation’s wealth on terrorist groups and activities.

    The U.S. sanctions on Iran are really affecting the Iranian regime and this is exactly what the United States wants. The Trump administration is in the midst of a maximum pressure campaign and this is exactly what the situation warrants. His predecessor’s administration attempted the appeasement approach, but it was a complete failure. The EU is still trying to make the appeasement approach work, but it too is failing. This failure can be quantified when looking at how many terror attacks Iran attempted to carry out on European soil last year alone.

    Maryam Rajavi’s Persian New Year speech on Nowruz 1398; The Year of Revolution and Freedom- (March 20, 2019) 

    Maryam Rajavi

    Happy New Year to the people of Iran who refused to lose hope even under the oppressive and dark rule of the mullahs.

    Congratulations to my compatriots in all cities and villages across Iran and to Iranians across the world on the advent of the Persian New Year 1398,

    Congratulations on Nowruz to the families of martyrs, to the resistance units, to supporters of the Iranian Resistance, to political prisoners, to members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, toPMOI freedom fighters and to Massoud Rajavi.

    Congratulations on the year of uprisings, the year of hope and exhilaration, and the year of progress and leaping ahead toward freedom and liberty. 

    Happy New Year to the people of Iran who refused to lose hope even under the oppressive and dark rule of the mullahs.

    Let us all salute our dignified Albanian guests who have joined us today in this Nowruz celebration. 

    The New Year, 1398, will be the harbinger of storms and change. Khamenei has already described it as the year when the enemies will make the final push to overthrow the regime.

    In the past year, our homeland was a garden witnessing the blossoming of its political and social spring. The flowers of uprisings, protests, and strikes bloomed. The uprisings in Kazerun, Borazjan, Ahvaz, and Khorramshahr; the uprising in the Bazaar of Tehran; the uprisings in 27 cities in early August; five rounds of nationwide strikes by truckers and truck owners; and consecutive strikes and protests by workers, teachers, educators and the retirees; and, finally, thousands of strikes, protests and demonstrations in at least 700 cities and towns.

    Hail to the arisen protesters and those who shape the uprisings! Hail to this freedom fighting generation!

    Yes, freedom must be earned. The spring of freedom will be achieved through your determination and your efforts. The spring of freedom for the people of Iran is on the horizon.

    The long-held U.S. policy of appeasement designed to protect the regime against regime change and overthrow was brought to a halt, and the beginning of sanctions on the regime’s oil sales has pushed Tehran into a phase of instability and insecurity. That is why the revolutionary realities of the Iranian society have become more evident and visible.

    In the meantime, the mullahs have extracted tens of billions of dollars out of the country. The economic austerity policy of Khamenei paved the way for further plunder of our people’s wealth. The value of the country’s official currency plunged by a third in less than a year. Inflation swelled four folds. Oil exports fell to a half to one-third and the budget deficit increased by at least 50 per cent.

    To preserve their decadent regime, the mullahs sold out portions of the resources and water of the Caspian Sea to northern neighbors, granted largescale fishing rights in the south to the Chinese, and conceded the administration of the Port of Chabahar to India.

    Still, this regime, which is close to its downfall, will not be able to save itself with the aid of such treacherous acts.

    In short, the mullahs have no way out in the face of nationwide uprisings and protests that are encircling them. This results from an understanding of the essence of the uprisings and offers a summary of the past year’s events. The regime’s death knell and internal tensions have left no more openings for it to display hollow shows of moderation.

    The myth of moderation was put to rest by the appointment of Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s Chief Justice. He is a reviled mass murderer who ran against Rouhani, the charlatan, during the last presidential elections. His appointment represented a coup de grace shot to the illusive myth of moderation in the regime. This is while Rouhani’s government is half-paralyzed and the most important face of the cabinet facade keeps sitting at home every other day or resigns. 

    In fact, the entire ruling regime is undergoing an accelerated rate of decay. Since they have no real chance of survival, the vali-e faqih (Khamenei) has arrayed his regime’s resources squarely on suppression, spilling blood and criminal activity. He appointed the regime’s previous ruthless Chief Justice as the head of the Expediency Council and one of the most brutal perpetrators of the massacre of 30,000 PMOI political prisoners in 1988 as his Chief Justice. Yes, this is the caliphate of massacre. The message is one of closing ranks and resorting to more suppression. The mullahs’ supreme leader seeks to compensate for his defeat in the 2017 presidential elections. He assumes that if Raisi had succeeded to become president, he could have prevented the uprising of December 2017-January 2018.

    Now, he has employed this bloodthirsty goon for the same purpose by appointing him to the Judiciary and the Assembly of Experts.

    The mullah who perpetrated the 1988 massacre and the executioner involved in the greatest crime committed in the history of the clerical regime must now close all the cracks within the regime. Otherwise, schisms and defections will not leave Khamenei alone for a minute.

    Nonetheless, the regime has no way to protect itself. On a daily basis, it keeps jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Endless bickering and internal feuds over FATF (Financial Action Task Force), the unbridled plunge of the value of the official currency Rial, the alarming status of the budget and financial resources, the black hole of sanctions, defeats in Syria where IRGC mercenaries face repeated blows, the growing threats posed by at least ten million unemployed, and most important of all the unstable circumstances have forced the regime to be on high alert every waking minute of the day.

    At its core, the issue is not this or that crisis faced by the regime; the real issue is that their entire rule is in crisis. Yes, this crisis is the crisis of overthrow. And the prospect of overthrow will never abandon this regime, even as Khamenei orders 80 million Iranians to write his absurd speeches three times.

    The mullahs have no chance of survival. Throughout the past year, however, they were dreaming of finding a way out by annihilating the Mojahedin and the Iranian Resistance. So, they concentrated the core of their efforts on terrorism and demonization targeting the Mojahedin. But they failed.

    They planned a major terrorist plot against the Iranian Resistance in Tirana, Albania; they plotted a major bombing of the annual gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Paris. They also conducted terrorist and espionage schemes against members of the Iranian Resistance in the U.S. Add to this a vast volume of smear campaigns against this movement in the press, websites and social media, particularly inside Iran. Over the past year alone, the regime’s hirelings made a plethora of film series and movies against the PMOI aired by state-run TV networks or screened in movie theatres.

    Their terrorism and demonization efforts, however, were not successful. But in all honesty, they were truly successful in accomplishing one major task and that was to clearly show, hundreds of times, that their main threat, and the alternative to their regime are the Mojahedin (the PMOI/MEK), the National Liberation Army and the National Council of Resistance of Iran. 

    Do you remember how much the mullahs and their collaborators dreamed of dismantling this resistance? They expected that after the relocation of the Mojahedin from Iraq, this organization and the movement as a whole would eventually disintegrate. But again, it was proven that they will have to take those goals to their graves.

    Last year, the Liberation Army was revitalized in 1,000 Ashrafs and resistance units and started flowing like a river in the streets of Iran’s cities. Now, the strategy and explicit positions of the Iranian Resistance are echoed in the words and demands of workers, truckers, teachers, students, farmers and all protesters throughout Iran. The overthrow of the clerical regime is the desire and demand of all of the people in Iran. The Iranian nation in its entirety is demanding the overthrow of the regime.

    Indeed, resistance units made significant strides through actions against the centres of suppression and the regime’s symbols. In some months of the past year, they carried out more than 100 acts to pierce through the atmosphere of repression. So, 1397 was the year of proliferation of the strategy of the Iranian Resistance, a year in which the prospect of the regime’s overthrow loomed large and the path and roadmap became even clearer. Yes, now, the Army of Spring is on its way, the army of spring with 100,000 flourishing roses.

    Parallel with this year’s uprisings, which exhibit the Iranian society’s devotion to welcome rejuvenation and spring, there was a continuous effort within the ranks of the Iranian Resistance to improve and advance humanitarian values and ideals. This effort was ongoing throughout the movement, from the Mojahedin organization, to other members and supporters of the Resistance in various countries, and to members of the resistance units in different cities inside Iran.

    The remarkable features of these efforts were reinforced resolve, renewed choices, increased motivation and advances by leaps and bounds in realizing the values of the ideals of humanity and struggle.

    Yes, this is indeed a new day with a new revolution in the making, bringing about change. Everyone is passionately endeavoring to create new values to reach the glorious destination of freedom. Everyone is trying their best and making their greatest sacrifice to fulfil their commitment to their enchained nation. They are showing that the strength within their collective enterprise and their coherent and robust organization as well as the power of their people is that enormous and undying force that will uproot the mullahs’ theocratic regime.

    This is why the Iranian Resistance’s Leader, Massoud Rajavi, declared that we have entered a new phase. Regardless of how long it takes and despite all the ups and downs, we must be ready and prepared because the policy of appeasement has failed, a policy which had protected the inhumane mullahs for three decades.

    Now the overthrow of the inhumane enemy is inevitable. Before all else, the army of freedom must be determined and get prepared by diving into a sea of rebellion and revolution. The instruments of revolution must be prepared. 

    My salutations to your unwavering resolve, your vigor, and our people’s resistance.

    Again, I would like to remind you of Massoud Rajavi’s words in his historic (1980) speech in Rasht, when he said, “Life is tied to the future. Life belongs to those who have a future. Now, it belongs to you… If you choose, if you rise up, if you are vigilant, then you would be the ones who will shape the future. It has always been like this, and it will always continue to be like this. Today, walls will only be torn down in this way.”

    In the beginning of the New Year, I would like to ask mothers and fathers, my sisters and brothers, my young daughters and sons, that in the face of the cruel and criminal mullahs, you must move ahead hand in hand, with hope and vigor, and welcome the New Year 1398 because it is a year of uprisings, upheavals and revolution.

    You must revive the sense of solidarity and sympathy in our wounded society. Your solidarity is that great power the mullahs endeavor to limit or destroy day and night.

    The people of Iran want freedom and justice. They want equality and independence.

    They need trust, solidarity and coexistence. They want economic and social progress. They want a country where everyone is entitled to have a job and to enjoy equal economic opportunities, and where no one feels a sense of shame because they cannot afford to feed their children.

    We want an Iran replete with freedoms, where children and youths are happy, where talents and potentials are realized, and where women play their role in the leadership of society; a country that lives in peace, friendship and coexistence with its neighbors.

    The people of Iran deserve such a country and they will write and create such a destiny with their own hands.

    The gates of Iran are open to embrace a future without oppression, inequality and injustice; a republic based on the separation of religion and state; a country ruled by its people’s suffrage and sovereignty, where the people’s votes have the first and final words.

    So, rise up, winter is on its way out,
    Open the garden’s gates,
    Here comes the scent of Nowruz 
    and the beautiful song of nightingales
    Happy Nowruz to everyone

    Iran: Regime Change Is Within Reach 

    Masoud Dalvand(Freedom Star):

    An interesting article by writer and political activist Shahriar Kia regarding the current situation in Iran and the prospects for the future of the Mullahs dictatorship in Iran is published on the official website of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, which is very helpful in understanding the current situation in Iran.
    I invite you to read this article.

    Iran: Regime Change Is Within Reach

    By Shahriar Kia

    The Iranian regime has been identified as the number one threat to peace and security in the Middle East.

    Its malign interventions in numerous nations across the region have cost the lives of many, and has cost Iran billions of dollars. Billions of dollars that could have improved some of the horrific social conditions in Iran.

    Freedom in Iran is non-existent and the people have been brutally denied the most basic of human rights.

    The economic and social conditions are getting worse and worse and an increasing number of people are falling into absolute poverty. Corruption is rife and is present at all levels of the country’s leadership. The notorious IRGC – the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps – is tasked with protecting the country’s clerical rule. It plays a major role in all major activities and it has a huge stake in the country’s economy.

    It has the backing of the regime’s Leader Ali Khamenei. In fact, one could say that the government has less control than the IRGC. It does not have to pay tax and it oversees the violent crackdown on the widespread popular discontent through its paramilitary branch – the Basij force.

    Democracy is also non-existent in Iran and any candidates for presidency are vetted. The main contenders in any election have been effectively hand-selected. This means that the people are voting from a very limited selection of candidates in which anyone the authorities deem not being suitable being eliminated from the very start. The IRGC heavily depends on this selection process for its survival too.

    The people of Iran took to the streets at the end of 2017 and have maintained domestic pressure on the regime ever since. They want to take their future into their own hands and they want to make sure that change, for the better, happens soon. They have watched the regime celebrate the 40th anniversary of the revolution and it is an anniversary they hoped the regime would not be in place to witness.

    The people know that moderation is never going to appear with the clerical regime. It relies on repression, suppression, the export of terrorism and the spreading of chaos across the region for its survival. It has had many opportunities to change its behaviour and it had the opportunity to make positive change when the nuclear deal was signed and billions of dollars were freed up. But it blew the opportunity and made it very clear that the Iranian people are not a priority.

    The domestic pressure is mounting and the international pressure is increasing. Most of the international pressure is from the United States. President Donald Trump has had Iran on his agenda for some time and he has vowed to tackle the threat thoroughly and effectively.

    The European Union, on the other hand, has been perversely light on the Iranian regime considering the number of attempted terrorist attacks and assassinations that intelligence agencies have foiled.

    Regime change is within reach and it will be precipitated by the international community recognising and responding to the Iranian regime’s threat effectively.

    A Look at the Destruction of Iran’s Economy by Mullahs After 40 Years of Religious Dictatorship – Video 

    Masoud Dalvand(Freedom Star):

    An overview of the black list of the religious dictatorship of Iran ruling over 40 years of their shameful rule, shows a devastated country economically and creating widespread poverty in the society, with the suppression and torture and the execution of any opposition voices in Iran, as well as the destruction of the country’s environment, the oppression of women and the youth inside Iran, and the export of crises and the war and terrorism outside the Iranian borders.
    Concerning the results of 40 years of devastation of the mullahs in Iran, it has been possible to write many books and figures of many of the catastrophes that this dictatorship has brought over Iran, which is not possible in this article.
    But the following brief report with an interesting and informative video gives a brief look at the destruction of the Iranian economy by the mullahs. This report and video are provided by YouTube’s PMOI/MEK YouTube channel.

    How the mullahs destroyed Iran’s economy

    40 years after Iran’s 1979 revolution, the ruling mullahs have taken the country back to the Middle Ages.

    Iran has large natural resources and the potential to improve the lives of all Iranians.
    In addition, Iran owns 7% of mines of the world, the largest hydrocarbon sources (Oil and Gas) in the world, 9.3% of the world’s oil and 18% of the world’s gas, and Iran itself has more natural sources than the entire EU area.
    But Iran is ruled by a dictatorship that spends all its wealth in terrorism and suppression.
    The fact is that Iran is ruled by a corrupt government that has looted Iranian people’s property to extend its rule. Iran under mullahs ranked 93rd in the world in health care, in welfare, Iranian people are ranked 108 out of 149 countries and the Iranian regime is on the top of the list of countries suffering from state-run money laundering and this is one of the reasons that the Iranian regime is ranked 138 in the world in corruption and also among top countries with high inflation rates
    Iranian workers’ monthly salary is less than $100 and Iran is the only country that uses all its renewable water resources and is being pushed toward an irreversible water crisis by the government.
    Moreover, Iran has some of the most dangerous roads in the world and is among the top countries in road fatalities.
    The mismanagement of Iran’s economy has led to mass dissatisfaction and protests. The people of Iran believe they deserve better.
    In the past year, Iranian people have taken to the streets to reclaim their country and destiny.

    The danger of overthrowing and the Iran’s mullahs response to it! 

    By Masoud Dalvand

    The severity of the crisis in the regime and the hopelessness of the regime’s superiors was highlighted by the Supreme Leader Khamenei in a speech on Monday, February 18, 2019, while he tried to show the regime is powerful and defeat the enemy. He repeatedly told the regime’s authorities that they would not be scared or frightened, but he himself expressed his horror by stating that the Americans closed the sword and the Europeans were abusing it.

    In Khamenei’s words, it was clear that the crises in the regime had more severity and depth. In this regard, are we facing a new quality?

    Is this the situation, as the regime’s leaders say, is due to a psychological propaganda war? Is Khamenei and Mullah Rouhani, President of the Iran regime, and other heads of this regime, that this difficult and critical phase is a transitory period and the regime can overcome its and remain live?

    And finally, when the conditions of the regime become more critical, we witness unprecedented levels of propaganda and the regime’s demonization against the PMOI/MEK as the main force of the resistance of Iran?

    The quality of the current crisis

    When it comes to the crisis in the regime, it comes to mind that this regime has always faced various crises; and so-called a system that lives in crisis.

    But the new conditions are special. Crises have reached to a point, to confessions of the regime’s leaders confirm that, so it is concluded that the situation is incomparable to before years and even months ago and accelerates towards a deterioration and more critical.

     In the economic field

    The words that are raised or sometimes leaked out through of the discussions about budget in the parliament, or the reports of the regime’s own sources on the status of factories and agricultural production, etc., are shocking.

    “It looks like next year, the system will engage in serious economic struggles to meet the country’s basic needs,” said Hermidas Bavand, an expert at Mullah Rouhani’s gang. 

    In the field of politics

    In the political context, if it is not worse than the economic situation, it’s definitely not better. Its index is the consensus that has emerged against the regime in the world, and Europe, which has supported the regime, is getting closer to the United States from the regime and closer to the United States because of its inability to respond to European conditions, including missile and regional policy. Warsaw Summit and Munich Security Conference.

     “Consolation to each other” at the height of panic

    The conditions are such that Khamenei must come to the scene and talk in public about the regime’s fears caused by the psychological warfare and the threat of the enemy and try to claim that we are strong and that the enemy is in decline… gives them a morale, but it’s interesting that even in his own words, the effects of horror are clearly obvious, for example, where he says that the United States has closed the sword and Europe has it, and be careful that you do not get caught. Is not all this a psychological war against the regime?

    The reversal of the reality of crises, and that this is a psychological warfare, is an approach that Khamenei and Mullah Rouhani repeatedly repeat. But beyond any discussion and analysis, is this economic situation that is in front of everyone’s eyes and that the leaders and agents of the regime’s media also admit it is a psychological warfare?

    Is this budget deficit, which now actually reaches half the total budget, is a psychological warfare?

    Is the scope of the closure of the factories and workshops now even reached the guilds in cities, for example, the closure of 180 restaurants in Tehran alone, due to the cost of meat and raw materials and lack of customers, etc., is psychological warfare?

    These facts are all the depths of this crisis. Of course, Mullah Rouhani and his government members, by providing false figures and figures, are trying to reverse the facts, but indisputable indices such as reaching the price of 1 Kg meat to over 100,000 Tomans(1,000,000 Rials) and the resumption of the dollar’s rising price after a periodic suspension and an increase in the rate of inflation that some The sources of the regime estimate it at 60%.

    The difference between psychological warfare and reality!

    Psychic warfare is usually something that is not really true, and if so, if it has an effect, it has a temporary effect. Like the same psychological warfare and demonization against the MEK that the regime has continued for 40 years, but it has no legs in reality, neither within the MEK nor in its social and political affiliation, and the international status of the MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has no effect. It does continuously lead to more scandals of the regime itself, and it even inevitably come out from inside the regime and it also exposes at Its media. For example, the explosion of the shrine of Imam Reza by one of the organs of the regime, or the reality of serial killings of libertarian priests by the Ministry of Intelligence and Security of the regime(MOIS).

    If the regime’s crises, are only psychological warfare, with all the so-called “hope therapy” propaganda by the regime’s leaders, so they should be eliminated, while we see that the conditions are getting worse and this “hope therapy” is not beneficial. As it was on the recent trip Mullah Rouhani, to Bandar Abbas, in the face of an imminent explosion of the society whose people do not have bread on the table, has been flaring the battles between the regime’s gangs and the Friday Imam of Bandar Abbas forced to mock him in public and ridiculed Rouhani’s claims about “repeat opening of economic projects!”

    The relation between the rise of the regime’s psychological war against the MEK and the rise of the regime’s crisis.

    The relevance of these two categories is a logical relation. For example, when Mullah Larijani, the head of the judiciary and the regime’s Expediency Council, claims that the US government has been playing under the view of the MEK, it is because of the Warsaw Summit and the fact of authenticity of the MEK and the Iranian resistance as the only alternative of the regime, the horror has come down to it. Or, when the regime’s media writes that US rulers get paid by the MEK, they are showing off this “relevance”.

    It has now become clear that all propaganda against the MEK is not merely a hysterical hatred of the regime against its enemy. Because the regime actually sees the MEK’s line and the MEK’s analysis as it progresses inside and outside the country, and cannot do anything to stop it.

    The regime knows well, why the blade of its suppression slowed down?

    He knows well, why his breath in the face of people has been tight?

    He knows well, from where is the source of the deadly slogan of “reformist, hardliner, game is over!”

    And he knows that they are the MEK who have revealed the weakness of the regime on the international scene!

    And he knows that they are the MEK who are accelerating the developments and leading it to overthrow of the regime!

    And he knows well, if the regime had a chance to do so, only was destroying of this resistance, but by resettlement the members of the MEK to Albania, It has failed in massacre of MEK’s members.

    Now the mullah’s regime is being crazy by the hysterical propaganda against the organized forces of the Iranian Resistance PMOI/MEK.

    Robert Torricelli: “Tomorrow is About Ending Regime in Iran” 

    Senator Robert Torricelli

    Speaking at a rally by Iranians in Warsaw Senator Robert Torricelli said: “The thousands and thousands of Iranians who have risked their lives have taken to the streets of the cities and towns of Iran, they are your choice. The thousands and millions of people of diaspora across Europe, but in America they are the choice, the NCRI is the choice, Maryam Rajavi is the choice. There is a choice for new leadership in Iran.”

    The rally by Iranians supporting the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on Wednesday was held on the first day of the conference on Middle East in Warsaw Poland.

    Test of speech by former Democratic US Senator Robert Torricelli follows:

    In all the world, there is no better place to meet to speak of freedom than in Warsaw, Poland,
    For 70 years, the Polish people did not negotiate with their oppressors. They didn’t hope for change. They didn’t accommodate their loss of freedom. They never gave up the idea that Poland would be free. Today we come here to demand the same for the Iranian people.

    Well, we congratulate those nations represented here today to discuss the future of the Middle East and Iran. We all speak to those nations that are not here. We understand your desire for accommodation and reconciliation, but there comes a time in life when reality must triumph over hope. We have tried to negotiate with Tehran. There have been negotiations with Tehran. We have hoped for for last 40 years and they have answered us with terrorism or oppression and death. The thousands of martyrs in Iran lying in their graves are a testament to the fact there is no negotiating with this regime. The regime must end now.

    To those nations who believed that they must accommodate Tehran because there is no choice, we say to them, we are the choice, the people of Iran.

    The thousands and thousands of Iranians who have risked their lives have taken to the streets of the cities and towns of Iran, they are your choice. The thousands and millions of people of diaspora across Europe, but in America they are the choice, the NCRI is the choice, Maryam Rajavi is the choice. There is a choice for new leadership in Iran.

    I understand those nations not gathered here today who seek accommodation with Iran because they’re concerned about nuclear weapons. I understand, but stopping the nuclear weapons in Iran won’t make the people who run anymore free. It won’t feed the hungry children in Tehran. It won’t end the oppression of basic rights. They won’t bring a free government. I say to those governments, not here wanting to uphold the nuclear accord there is more the Iranian people deserve than simply banning nuclear weapons and a government, which will kill thousands of its own people, send terrorists to France and Germany and Albania. A government that was imprisoning its own people, murderer its own opponents, cannot be trusted to keep its word on nuclear weapons or any other accord. A murderous regime is not a trusted regime.

    My friends, they can call this conference anything they want, give it any name they want to give it. But here’s the truth: Yesterday was about negotiating with Tehran today and tomorrow is about ending the regime and bringing a free government to Tehran, welcome to the future.

    Thank you all very much.
