    NCRI Reveals Details of Tehran’s Terror Machine in the West 

    NCRI Reveals Details of Tehran_s Terror Machine in the West

    Alireza Jafarzadeh, the Deputy Director of the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US)

    Washington, DC – On Friday, November 2, 2018, Alireza Jafarzadeh, the Deputy Director of the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US), held a press conference to unveil the terror network of the Iranian regime and its role in a chain of terrorist plots in Europe and the United States, revealing the specific regime officials involved in the planning and execution of terrorist operations.

    Jafarzadeh drew attention to the fact that the recent wave of terror plots were not the result of some rogue elements within the regime, but rather were decided and planned in the highest levels and carried out “under the supervision of [the Special Affairs Office of the Supreme Leader] after Khamenei personally approved them.”

    Stating that there has been a significant surge in terrorist operations in the US and Europe since 2017 and that the regime has revived its terror structure, Jafarzadeh said the regime carried out 2 terror operations in Europe in 2017, but has carried out 8 terrorist plots in the United States and Europe so far in 2018. He said that 4 Iranian diplomats have been implicated this year for involvement of such terror operations and that four major operations were carried out since March. “Tehran has plotted one major terror operation in Europe and the United States every six weeks from March to September 2018,” said Jafarzadeh.

    NCRI-US deputy director also explained the significant role Tehran’s Foreign Ministry has been playing as enablers and facilitators of terrorist operations and its culprits. He said that Tehran’s embassy in Vienna has acted as the main hub for a host of intelligence operations in Europe for the past several years. As other embassies played the same role in a host of terror operations over the past three decades.

    The primary target of the regime remains the officials of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its pivotal member, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) also known as the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK). Just in the past six months, there have been three plots specifically targeting NCRI and MEK, everywhere from the MEK’s members in Albania in March to the annual Iran freedom rally in Paris in June and even within the United States in August.

    While the regime intended these operations as a show of strength and intimidation or even eradication of the alternative to this regime, they reveal a deeper fear about the insecurity of the mullahs’ hold on power, particularly in light of the widespread anti-government protests that have shaken Iran for the past year.

    Mr. Jafarzadeh commented on the cause for the renewed wave of terror when he said, “For its survival, the regime looks to terrorism against its organized opposition as it plays the key role in the uprising in Iran.”

    Mr. Jafarzadeh concluded the conference by detailing a list of steps that Western governments could take to curb the Iranian regime’s aggression, including prosecuting all Iranian agents in the U.S. and Europe, expelling Iranian terrorist diplomats from Europe and shutting down Tehran’s embassies in European capitals and finally sanctioning all entities involved in planning, training, facilitating and funding the Iranian regime’s terrorism.

    A look at Iran’s Revolutionary Guards 

    IRGC Black List

    The name Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) has been intertwined and synonymous with the current clerical regime of Iran for the past few decades. From the Iran-Iraq War to several regional conflicts, to economic activities and internal crackdown of unrests across the country, the IRGC has had a major role in shaping the Iranian regime’s domestic and foreign policy.

    Establishing The IRGC

    Following the 1979 revolution, Islamic Republic founder Ruhollah Khomeini realized the need to have an advantage and apparatus to quell any domestic threats and unrest. Considering the fact that they could not trust the Iranian military, police and other state forces for this purpose, the ruling mullahs began the process of launching their own parallel forces.

    The IRGC was established on May 5, 1979, less than three months after the revolution. What started as a paramilitary group of ideologically trained units loyal to the supreme leader has now grown to be the sole protector and backbone of the ruling mullahs in Iran.

    The IRGC answers directly to the supreme leader, now Ali Khamenei, and is given unconstrained jurisdiction and authorities. The IRGC is actually above Iran’s classic army in the hierarchy, and provided with enormous economic and political power. The IRGC has now evolved to be a “parallel” or shadow government of Iran, accountable to Khamenei only.

    IRGC Role In Domestic Crackdown

    From day one, the IRGC spearheaded a campaign aiming to purge dissidents, intellectuals, journalists, writers, opposition figures and organized labor unions. The principal target has consistently been Iran’s main opposition entity, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), highlighted in a gruesome manner during the summer 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners, mostly PMOI/MEK members and supporters.

    “The orders for the systematic execution of dissidents came from Khomeini himself in the form of a fatwa (religious edict). His intention was to purge the country of any opposition, notable the main dissident organization, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK),” said Hamid Yazdan Panah, an Iranian human rights activist and lawyer, in a piece published by The Hill.

    Throughout the 1980s, the IRGC carried out numerous campaigns targeting dissidents abroad. These efforts included groups across the spectrum, including Kurdish and Baluchi groups, members of the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), among others.

    The infamous “chain murders” of the 1990s targeting political opponents and dissident writers inside Iran was carried out by the notorious Ministry of Intelligence & Security (MOIS) and IRGC units without any individual ever facing justice for their murderous roles.

    Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei ordered the IRGC and its paramilitary Basij militia to crush the 1999 student uprisings, enjoying the blessing of Hassan Rouhani, who was then the regime’s secretary of the Supreme National Security Council and later became the president of the Iranian regime.

    The IRGC was once again unleashed during the 2009 uprisings to quell any pro-democracy demands. The Guards went on a spree of arresting thousands, torturing hundreds and secretly executing dozens.

    The IRGC has relentlessly targeted the main Iranian opposition PMOI/MEK through the years, following both the 1979 revolution and afterwards when the organization went into exile, mainly in Iraq. MEK members were kidnapped and/or assassinated also in Europe.

    Political Interference & Terrorism

    The Iranian regime proclaims to have a divine mission of establishing a universally just government across the globe. It therefore considers meddling in other countries’ internal affairs as justified and necessary measures. As a result, the use of terrorism and spreading fundamentalist viewpoints are not policies of mere marginal importance. Alongside the brutal repression of all domestic protests, Tehran’s very survival fully depends on remaining loyal to this practice.

    Tehran’s notorious activities have expanded to 13 countries and the IRGC is also known to have launched spying cells or networks in at least 12 different countries, while most have seen authorities apprehend members of such groups.

    IRGC Fomenting Sectarian Tension And Violence

    One very deadly method explored by the Iranian regime has been aggravating sectarian rifts across the Middle East, especially in its western neighbor of Iraq that continues to remain a very fragile state. A cruel irony, however, is witnessed in the reality that while the IRGC is known to recruit Shiites for militia groups, it has also fueled support for Sunni terrorist groups.

    “Indeed, the bipartisan 9/11 commission report, which investigated the Sept. 11, 2001 al Qaeda terror attacks — the largest mass casualty terrorist attack in U.S. history — pointed out that there was ‘strong evidence that Iran facilitated the transit of al Qaeda members into and out of Afghanistan before 9/11, and that some of these were future 9/11 hijackers,’” The Washington Times reported.

    This is aimed at fulfilling Tehran’s ultimate objective: overwhelming the entire region with chaos, and utilizing such a situation to expand their field of influence. Iran is “securing an arc of influence across Iraq and Syria that would end at the Mediterranean Sea,” according to The Guardian.

    The IRGC can be described as the Iranian regime’s arm to establish the first “Islamic Caliphate” by taking first measures in this outline in 1979, long before Daesh (ISIS/ISIL).

    In fact, the violence promoted by the Iranian regime across the region under the flag of Shiite Islam, parallel to the atrocious crackdown imposed on Sunni communities in various countries, have encouraged the rise of Daesh.

    The IRGC must be placed on the US FTO list

    Hidden Occupation And Expansion of IRGC Abroad

    The IRGC Quds Force, the unit’s extraterritorial entity currently commanded by Qassem Suleimani, is tasked to carry out foreign missions across the Middle East and beyond. In the broader picture, the IRGC has never limited its expansion and terrorists to the region.

    “The world should rest assured the IRGC will soon establish branches in the US and Europe,” IRGC Brigadier General Salar Anoush said recently.

    The IRGC has also launched a massive network of training camps inside Iran and abroad to gain new recruits for its proxy militia groups. Hundreds of future soldiers arrive from Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen each month to undergo such training courses.

    The IRGC’s broad meddling makes its involvement in covertly occupying four regional countries undeniable: IraqLebanonSyria and Yemen.

    Scenes in Syria during the past several years have made the IRGC’s deadly role crystal clear. Reports indicate up to 70,000 IRGC foot soldiers and cannon fodders were roaming the Levant, involved in launching killing sprees.

    “The Iranian regime’s military incursion in Syria came at a great cost to Tehran. According to reports obtained by the NCRI from within the regime’s own ranks, Iran’s death toll in the Syrian war are estimated to be over 12,000,” according to a research report.

    The IRGC has allocated both its human and financial resources to make good on its security threats, in tandem with military attacks. The IRGC has also been establishing cultural centers across the Middle East and throughout Europe and North America, aiming to expand its influence. They have monopolized control of more than 90 ports and loading docks in the Persian Gulf for shipping supplies, weapons and explosives to their preferred destinations. To this day, 14 different countries are known to have been targets of such covert activities.

    IRGC Influence In Iran’s Foreign Policy

    With Khamenei’s approval, the IRGC enjoys special and powerful dominance over the regime’s foreign policy and agenda. For example, the Guards have taken full control over Iran’s embassies in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. While having prominence in the affairs related to Armenia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    In view of the significance to IRGC operations, the Iranian regime’s ambassadors and diplomatic missions to Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria are appointed directly by the IRGC and not the Foreign Ministry of Iran. It is worth noting that Iran’s current ambassador to Iraq, Brigadier Iraj Masjedi, was formerly in charge of the IRGC’s Iraq desk, as its chairman and a senior Quds Force advisor. The Quds Force is overseeing the Iranian regime’s operations in Syria and Iraq.

    Masjedi himself supervised and coordinated attacks against U.S.-led Coalition forces in Iraq, leaving scores killed and wounded.

    Growing Grip Of IRGC Over Iran’s Economy

    The IRGC quest to gain full control over Iran’s economy began following the Iran-Iraq war. This grip grew significantly during the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, himself a former IRGC commander, from 2005 to 2013.

    The IRGC has gained increasing influence in major sectors of Iran’s economy, such as oil and gas, and the construction industry. The exact number of IRGC-affiliated front companies remains unknown, simply due to the fact that they seek to evade sanctions through the use of various front companies and institutions in different countries.

    Ironically, the IRGC benefited enormously from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) the regime signed with the world powers.

    Of nearly 110 agreements signed since the JCPOA’s signing, worth at least $80 billion, 90 counts of these deals have been with companies owned or controlled by Iranian state entities, according a Reuters analysis.

    IRGC Controlling Iran’s Nuclear & Ballistic Missile Programs

    The IRGC is now considered a huge conglomerate of different companies and assets. Parts of its holdings include controlling Iran’s missile drive and the controversial nuclear program.

    The IRGC owns and controls dozens of companies, involved in procuring the technology needed to develop ballistic missiles and sensitive nuclear products. The IRGC has been entrusted to develop and pursue the ballistic missile program and all its aspects. A senior Iranian official once boasted about Iran having a sixth missile production line, including the Shahab-3/3B, with a range of over 2,100 kilometers.

    Terror Designations

    The U.S. Treasury Department blacklisted the IRGC Quds Force back in 2007 for “Proliferation Activities and Support for Terrorism.” The Quds Force is known to provide material support to terrorist groups such as the Taliban, the Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other such entities.

    In 2017, the Treasury designated the Iranian regime’s IRGC as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” for the “activities it undertakes to assist in, sponsor, or provide financial, material, or technological support for, or financial or other services to or in support of the IRGC Quds Force.”

    As the U.S. State Department has designated the IRGC Quds Force as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization,” there are growing calls in Washington calling for similar damning measures against the mother IRGC entity to deliver a crippling blow to the mullahs’ regime.

    The Iranian regime considers this a declaration of war.

    Final Words

    The mullahs’ regime of Iran is a dictatorship on a mission to agitate and expand its influence throughout the region and beyond. The IRGC is the main apparatus and the leverage for this regime to continue its aspirations and existence through domestic crackdown and export of terrorism abroad, whether through proxy wars, terror attacks or spreading its extremist ideology.

    “The IRGC is dedicated to protecting the Islamic Revolution, not the state of Iran. As guardians of the Islamic Revolution, it supports terrorist activities by the Quds Force and its other military divisions. The IRGC finances these terrorist activities through its business activities, making the overall o simply the paymaster for terrorist activities by its constituent elements,” wrote Raymond Tanter and Ed Stafford in The Hill.

    The cancerous and unchecked growth of the IRGC throughout the region is a threat to not only the Middle East but also Europe. A dangerous fundamentalist ideology drives this armed (military) entity. The world needs to take this threat seriously before it is too late.

    Iran Mullah’s Regime, Godfather of Terrorism, This Time in Denmark! 

    The Iran government sponsors terrorism

    Masoud Dalvand: I read a good and informative article on Iran Freedom website about the terrorism of the Iran mullahs regime, which also invite you to read it.

    Indeed, the failure of another terrorist plot planned by Khamenei’s dictatorship (the godfather of terrorism) in European soil, not only does not surprise any observer but also proves that the mullahs regime is truly the godfather of terrorism in the world.

    In this regard, the DW website quoted the Danish foreign minister in a report of the foiled terror plot on Oct. 31, 2018:

    “I decided to recall the Danish ambassador to Tehran for consultations. The plot of an Iranian intelligence agency to assassinate a person on Danish soil is completely unacceptable.”

    The European Union, sunk in its malign appeasement policy, did not show much tendency to confront the terrorist acts of the regime before Assadollah Assadi, regime terrorist diplomat was arrested in Germany in relation to a foiled bomb plot in Paris against the grand gathering of the Iranian Opposition in Villepinte.

    For this reason, Khamenei considered this unconcerned state as a green light for continuing the regime’s terror policy, which has always served as a “crutch” for the clerical regime as the godfather of terrorism, a policy that is still on its agenda.

    The arrest of two terrorist agents of the mullahs in Albania who tried to target the MEK headquarters by an explosives truck, as well as two assassinations in the Netherland carried out by the mercenaries of this godfather of terrorism in recent years, and the discovery of half a kilo of explosives and detonators in Belgium, which was supposed to target the largest gathering of Iran’s resistance in Paris, are fully affirming this fact.

    DW report also quoted the Denmark prime minister saying Denmark is trying to put the issue of the mullahs regime’s terrorism on the agenda of the European Union.

    In this regard, Rasmussen emphasized in a tweet: “Further actions against Iran will be discussed in the EU”.

    Rasmussen, who had partaken at Nordic leaders meeting in Oslo and met his British counterpart, Theresa May, said: The United Kingdom will support Denmark in this case.

    He added: “In close collaboration with the UK and other countries we will stand up to Iran”.

    In a tweet, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi once again called on the European Union to place the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) on its terror list immediately.

    Pointing to the deception campaign by Iran regime’s lobbies abroad, the president-elect of the Iranian resistance, emphasized:

    “The Iranian regime has already carried out hundreds of extra-territorial terrorist operations. Do not believe the fallacy of rogue groups. The people of Iran rose up and cried out, “Hardliners, reformists, the game is over”.”

    Watch the video below to remember the wild terrorism of the mullahs in the Middle East.

    US Releases Report on Iran Regime’s Destructive Behavior 

    US Releases Report on Iran Regime’s Destructive Behaviour

    The US State Department has released an extensive report detailing the Iranian Regime’s “destructive behavior” at home and abroad shortly before the 40th anniversary of the mullahs stealing power.

    The report, entitled Outlaw Regime: A Chronicle of Iran’s Destructive Activities, goes into stark detail about Iran’s support for terrorism, illicit financial activities, abuse of human rights, environmental exploitation, its missile program, a threat to cyber security, and a threat to maritime security.

    The report starts with a letter from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who explains why the US withdrew from the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and how the Iranian Regime will suffer as a result.

    He wrote that the current US policy on Iran reflected that Iran is “not a normal state”, arguing that normal states don’t:

    • attack embassies and military installations in peacetime

    • hold hostage citizens of foreign nations

    • jail their own citizens or those of other countries on specious crimes

    • impose severe restrictions on basic freedoms

    • conduct covert assassinations in other countries

    • engage in torture

    • squander their own natural resources

    • proliferate missile technology to dangerous proxies

    • violently suppress legitimate protests

    • serve as a sanctuary for terrorists

    • call for the destruction of Israel and threaten other countries

    • aid brutal dictators such as Syria’s Bashar al-Assad

    • fuel terrorist proxies and militias

    Pompeo said that the report served as “a full record of the Islamic Republic’s hostile behavior abroad and its repression at home beyond the continued threat of its nuclear program”.

    The report

    The report makes clear that the Iranian Regime’s support for terrorism has gone on since the start of the Regime, usually driven by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its Qods Force as well as the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

    The report read: “Today, the IRGC-QF is active across the Middle East and has plotted or carried out terrorist attacks in five out of seven continents. Where it is unable or unwilling to act directly, the Iranian regime has mastered the use of terrorist proxy groups like Lebanese Hizballah, Palestine Islamic Jihad, the Bahraini Al- Ashtar Brigades and the Iraqi Kata’ib Hizballah to conduct terrorist attacks.”

    This support for terrorist groups has been aided by Iran’s continued development of ballistic missiles – in violation of UN resolution 2231 – and its “opaque and fraudulent financing activities”, which have undermined the integrity and security of the global financial system.

    As a result of all of this, the US considers Iran a threat to maritime security in the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea and to cyber security, where they have been engaging in unsafe behaviours for a couple of years, mainly through the use of proxies.

    The Iranian Regime is also known to have ignored environmental crises that have led to drought and mass migration in Iran; something not surprising considering their “repeated and systemic abuse of human rights”. The report observes that the Regime’s human rights abuses extend far beyond its borders, with the murder of civilians in Syria and the arbitrary detention of Sunnis in Iraq.

    Pompeo wrote: “Iran is a society with so much greater potential. We want to reach a new agreement with Iran that ensures its nuclear activities are peaceful and that its role in the Middle East is constructive. We seek a deal that ensures Iran does not support terrorism around the world and provides for the greater opportunity to its own people. We are prepared to work with the Iranian regime, but only if it makes major changes. Until then, the Iranian regime can rest assured of our firm resolve to counter their destabilizing activities. Given the record we have published today, they should expect nothing less.”

    The Need for Terrorism in the Rule of Velayat-e Faqih in Iran 

    The Need for Terrorism in the Rule of

    Since 40 years ago, with the Khomeini’s achievement to the rule of Iran and the establishment of the Velayat-e faqih regime, “assassination” has been one of the most important and vital means to maintain the dominance of Velayat-e faqih. Quantities and figures, as well as the disclosure of these assassinations are not considered in this note and article. In this regard, significant revelations have been made by the Iranian Resistance.

    In this article, I want to look at some of the motives that the clerical regime, including terrorism based on it, uses as a solution to consolidate the foundations of its political domination.

    In examining the inherent features of the Velayat-e faqih regime, which constitutes terrorism as an integral part of this rule, one can mention the following:

    1 Denial of the freedom and authority for human

    2 belonging to the Middle Ages and lack of the ability to adapt to social evolution

    3 Monopoly in Political Power

    4 Occupation in the sovereignty

    5 Intimidating

    6 Neglecting the main alternative of the Velayat-e faqih (Alternative) regime

    These six features are filters that do not allow the diversity of opinion and dissent, the public participation, the right to free choice and democracy to the rule of the Velayat-e faqih. On the other hand, since these attributes are typical attributes of civilized human societies, this sovereignty always perceives itself against these features in an impasse, a disillusionment, an abomination, anger, and hatred. Therefore, it is a good way to deal with these features in the elimination and physical destruction of their carriers. Therefore, breathing in the atmosphere and the atmosphere of terrorism and inhaling it is a vital requirement for expressing the existence of the system of Velayat-e faqih. The terror card, like a sword in the pod, is always ready to respond and provide for the survival of the sovereignty.

    Denial of the freedom and authority for human

    The principle of Velayat-e faqih and the reactionary ideology of the clerical regime do not perceive the liberty and authority of man.

    In such thinking, the Velayat-e faqih is the representative of God and the extraterrestrial being created by humans for his service and companionship; Hence, they are “small” and “flock”! Therefore, independence and the free choice of any thought, thought and belief are considered as a deviation from the WaliFakyah. To the extent that it is inactive, the dissident can remain silent and alive in the order and obligation of the Velayat-e faqih; however, if someone protects and advocates the independence of thought and dissent and their free choice, their right to life will be abolished and cause applying the apostate, hypocrite, infidel, divine and deviant from the divine path and his representative, Wali Faqih. The decree of such dissent is death. This death must either be carried out by the representative of the Wali Faqih in the judiciary or by assassination.

    One of the fundamentals of the regime’s policy in dealing with ethnic and religious minorities, as well as political and cultural groups since 1979, has come from such a special feature.

    Belonging to the Middle Ages and not having the ability to adapt to social evolution

    One of the characteristics and peculiarities of the current Iranian society is its similarity with the era that in the 15th and 16th centuries led to the Renaissance movement. The main feature of this period was the stagnation of static and frozen thoughts with dissent, modernism, wisdom and enlightenment. In this battle, the church should come down from behind the clouds of holiness and immolation, and it was logic, rationality, innovation, and philosophy and science as a means to explain and understand the world. In the essence of the Renaissance movement, it was the freedom and authority that a church would have to rule upon its admission.

    It is very clear that through the struggles of the 40th anniversary of the people and the leaders of freedom and enlightenment, Iranian society could stand against the thought and explanation of the dilemma of Khomeini and the mullahs from the “man, society and history” and pay its heavy price with thousands of angels of freedom. The payment of this price was due to the battle with the prominent character of this medieval ruler who, with the massacre and executions on the streets of Iran and the world, could not confront the social development of Iran and its pioneers.

    Monopoly in Political Power

    Political sovereignty and the resulting power in democratic and popular systems arise from the free choice of the citizens and their representatives. The purpose of such a government is to advance and realize personal, social, national, patriotic and human prosperity. Thus, such political power derives its legitimacy from the sovereignty of the people and is therefore not absolute and is criticism and substitute. In such a structure, sovereignty is an opportunity to present programs and competitions and turn out the best ideas for the development of the nation and the homeland.

    In the sovereignty of Velayat-e faqih, with deception and deceit, political power is attributed to God and comes from “superior will”. What is sacrificed at the first step is the sovereignty of the people and the freedom of choice of citizens.

    On the basis of such power and sovereignty, “others” have no place in political and ideological and cultural terms in governing and political power. Therefore, the political, ideological and cultural presence of their sovereignty is considered to be a rival and alternative. Therefore, they must either endorse and honor or be recorded on the list of threats. This list is always ready for assassination alongside the podgy sword. From then on, how to regulate the relationship and its relations with the sovereignty of the Wali-Faqih, its fate and its life.

    This feature is inclusive with totalitarianism. It is a feature of Khomeini, and then Khamenei, no group, and someone outside the exclusive circle of power can not tolerate. Therefore, everyone should swear to the supreme leader to ensure the monopoly of power.

    Power is a special monopoly on the part of the “superior will” and entrusted to the Wali-Faqih. Denying and violating this monopoly is denied the right to life, and Its sentence includes deprivation of ordinary life, exile, imprisonment, isolation and exclusion, and if not, “terror”.

     Occupation in the sovereignty

    This government is not a rule of free will and democratic choice of the people. Khomeini, from the beginning, betrayed the promises made before the revolution, imposed a clerical assembly of people instead of the constituent assembly. This constitutional assembly passed the Velayat-e faqih, and the sovereignty of the Iranian nation was usurped and handed over to a beast called the Wali-Faqih.

    In February 1979, in parliamentary elections, Khomeini did not allow any opposition political group candidate, including MEK candidates, to run in parliament with fraud and crackdown.

    Representatives of the Wali Faghih have repeatedly acknowledged that people do not have the right to choose. If there is an election for the demagoguery and people make a comment, this opinion has no religious authority and the verdict is validated by the religious leader.

    Therefore, the right to vote and opinion about the fate of themselves and the country will be denied to the citizens. His vote is 80 million. He does not have any weight in terms of the Wali Faghih. Being or not having a citizen will have no effect on the fate of society and the environment. Hence, the people of Iran are in control of the occupation, which implements and enforces the laws of the occupied country.

    This peculiarity to the sovereignty of the occupier gives the authority to interfere in all matters of life of the nation. From this perspective, all people in the occupied country are suspected and threatened. The greatest cost should be spent on the continuation of occupation. From this perspective, the occupied people must be aware of their right to live on the occupying government. This nation is all “superior will” in the governorate and elected province; therefore, the lives and honor of the people and the amulets are hostages of the occupying power. Hence, the need for assassination and physical removal, the necessity of exercising sovereignty and guaranteeing the survival and consolidation of the foundations of power.

    The obvious feature of this occupation is to justify the assassinations, escape from any law and non-accountability for domestic and international complaints and protests and audits.

    Intimidating

    In a society where equality between men and women, dissent, democracy, pluralism and freedom in its entirety, as well as the critique of the absolute power of the Velayat-e faqih, are considered as a crime and a sin, the means of coping with these values ​​and necessities turn into a state of affairs that addresses all possible ways of a peaceful life It brings to the door. In such a society, the first victim is civility, law, and political and judicial rights. Therefore, the only possible way is to impose power through the promotion of fear and terror.

    Terrorism Iran

    Execution and assassination are like a lofty corridor whose first and second ends meet with fear and terror. Racial and religious fascists in mullahs’ regime use this weapon to promote fear and terror as the most effective tactical and strategic weapon.

    Execution and assassination are one of the main tools and foundations supporting the sovereignty of Velayat-e faqih, which has extended it from prisons to the streets of Iran and the cities of the world. The weapon is so effective for this sovereignty, and if even one day it stops, the elements of the clerical regime will be shaken. The propagation, propagation and propagation of the horror of executions and assassinations act as a spell of the glass of the life of this sovereignty. Therefore, it should be regarded as the main leverage of repression.

    Denial the main alternative of the Velayat-e faqih (Alternative) regime

    We need to point to a very important feature in the need for terrorism, which undoubtedly are the axes or previous features used to realize this very important principle: the negation of any alternatives or alternatives for the rule of the velayat-e faqih.

    From the outset, Khomeini chose and propagated the word “Islam”, the pseudonym “himself” and the clerical regime. With unsurpassed arrogance, he never denied the character of ‘Imam’; on the contrary, he always tried to dismiss it for the general public and, with many tricks, surrounded himself with a halo of sanctity and disintegration.

    Some later, he saw the intention and determination that he had learned from the very soon afterwards, under the title of “Velayat-e faqih” in the constitution and formalized. He even nominated his designated government to the “Imam of Time”!

    The same sanctity that was arranged and propagated around it was an attempt to eliminate any idea and probability of substitution, which is commonly found in the circle of ordinary political power and commonplace in democratic systems, and set itself the boundary of its inheritance. There is no sunset over this occupation and occupation.

    Such a structure, with a combination of power and holiness, does not discourage any opposition from its opponents and critics. All the behavior of Khomeini from the following February 12, 1980 indicates that this special feature is very important: The Islamic Republic should not have any alternative. Therefore, any possibility must be suppressed and destroyed with intensity and intensity.

    The vital need for terrorism to eliminate any substitution justifies all policies, strategies, deals, and clauses for this regime. In this need, it will pay for whatever price it needs. In this terrorism, any dignity, if any, goes down and trades.

    In the latest example of the need for terrorism in spite of the crisis of achievements, sanctions and uprisings in Iran, which threw the whole regime into turbulence and inflammation, it is willing to sacrifice its democratic alternative to bring the Iranian Resistance in Paris under because he sees in the PMOI and the National Council of Resistance of Iran and Its president, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi an alternative to It’s overwhelming and capable force.

      Great article Masoud, you give a great, well written, in-depth explanation of the history and path the nefarious Iranian Regime has ruled over last 40 years spreading their wide web of sponsored terror throughout the world. Thank you for the update as to the Iranian Regime and their attempt to attack the recent Paris #FreeIran conference and Iran losing ground.

    Panel Discussion on Iran: IRGC and Meddling in the Region 

    Panel discution Policy on Iran

    Panel Discussion on Iran: IRGC and Meddling in the Region

    Moderator: Walid Phares, Expert, global terrorism and Middle Eastern affairs

    Second panel discussion on Iran starts: IRGC and meddling in the region, moderated by Mr. Walid Phares, Expert, global terrorism and Middle Eastern affairs.

    Raid Yassine, Ambassador of Yemen in Paris, former Foreign Minister of Yemen:

    The reason the Iranian regime meddles in the region is instituted in its constitution. This highlights the fact that they will continue what they have been doing.

    Deputy Commander of the Quds Force said Yemen is more important than Lebanon. They infiltrated a huge country with 27 million people.

    We have been receiving aid and support from Saudi Arabia, Egypt , etc. We did not receive any support from Iran . Instead, we discovered spy networks. In January 2013.

    Ret. General Charles Wald, former Deputy Commander of U.S. European Command: “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has not moderated the behavior of the Iranian regime. The JCPOA was pretty much a failure.”

    “Security of the Iranian regime depends on the export of revolution by that regime. Currently, Iran’s regional ambitions constitute its control over Syria. They provide troops for Assad.”

    U.S. Defense Secretary Mattis accused Iran of trying to influence the Iraqi elections. In Lebanon , Iran is accused of making at least two underground factories for manufacture of missiles.

    James Conway, General (Ret.), former Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps.: We have been using the term “meddling” for years, but I think that word no longer satisfies. Iran is today calling the shots in all Middle Eastern capitals.

    I have seen their (regime) activities described with terms “interdiction”, “subversion”, “cancer” and even “takeover.”

    Soleimani sees his mission in Syria as two folds: One is to support the Syrian regime and that includes the survival of the Assad regime. Syria has been Iran’s best ally for years and is crucial to this whole concept of the Shiite Crescent.

    Frédéric Encel, writer and scholar of geopolitics specialized on the Middle East.

    Three political crises in the Iranian regime and Khamenei’s response with three blank cartridge bullets 

    Three political crises in the Iranian regime and Khamenei's response with three blank cartridge bullets

    By Masoud Dalvand

    Multi shot with blank cartridge bullets on the anniversary of Khomeini’s death!

    Khamenei went to Qom to commemorate the anniversary of Khomeini’s death, pointing out a number of key issues of the regime that the mullahs are confronted with, in a very brief speech referring to various issues.

    Khamenei paid three issues;

    First, the continuation of the uprising and protest movements that are happening every day throughout the country and becoming more and more day after day.

    Secondly, the issue of Iran deal and anger and dissatisfaction with the situation that Khamenei has tried in this regard, in light of his own situation, to exonerate himself and to blame “mullah Rouhani” and his gang.

     

     

     

     

    Third, the issue of the missile program and the regional interference of the mullahs, which these days, under the international pressure, smells of the region’s evacuation from the regime more than ever!

    In fact, these three issues are the most serious problems of the regime at the moment, and the success or failure of the regime depends on the answers that must be given to three issues.

    The uprising and protests of the people

    Regarding the uprising and protests, Khamenei’s words remained the same as the absurdity of all the dictators who repeatedly repeat it and, by imposing protesting people and basically every protest movement outside the borders, try to denying the national identity of the protests and protesters and say that it’s illegitimate, of course in the political culture of the mullahs by putting off a terrorist label to any protest movement!

    At the same time, the mullahs are trying to prevent the movement of people’s protest movements from being violent (which is the natural reaction of the people to government repression), in any case.

    In this speech, Khamenei, referring to the MEK and It’s role in recent popular movements, said that:

    “We know that they are sitting and planning! »

    Khamenei, unable to suppress the uprising of the people and unable to solve the problems of the country, only repeats the same previous exhortation, saying that there are a handful of small and few people coming from other cities and provoking people.

    Khamenei, of course, did not mention why, in this country, every simple protest of a guild immediately turns into a political and security crisis, and a political slogan directly pointing to the regime’s head. And thus, he left the first important point in his speech without any determine of issues, and went with the same slogans and shotted to the next goal.

     

    The reality of the resumption of the nuclear activities of the regime

     The next point that Khamenei said in his speech on the occasion of the anniversary of Khomeini’s death was the issuance of a decree on the resumption of the nuclear activities of the regime.

    Khamenei ordered the preparation to prepare for the 190,000 units at nuclear facilities, and to prepare and even extend the requirements for using centrifuges.

    Khamenei seems to be real shotgun, but with care in the words he chose and his clear indications that we are moving “within the framework” of the Iran deal, it was his second shot with blank cartridge bullet in that speech.

    In that speech, Khamenei immediately added and emphasized, fearing that he would be denied this as a violation of Iran deal.

    “Of course within the framework of Iran deal!”

    But the problem is that, even if the regime so chooses, it will not actually be able to resume enrichment in the dimensions before the Iran deal, as the mullahs destroyed their centrifuges at the beginning of the deal, and if they were to be repaired tomorrow It takes many years to reach the previous level, regardless of whether their own confessions are possible. Therefore, Khamenei’s words in this section were merely a shamrock of the internal use, and for giving morale to his frightened and defeated forces, and nothing more than a blank cartridge bullet firing!

    Maneuver with missile power and regional hegemony!

    Khamenei’s third point was about the regime’s missile power, which said:

    “We shoot 10 missiles against each missile that fires us!”

    As you can see, Khamenei, in the words about the missile, only wants to say the word “missile” and repeat it, not saying that he has not mentioned anything. But in this statement, there is no reference to the type of missile! Because the fights are basically long-range ballistic missiles, not every missile! Khamenei also tried to make a gesture of power and not more!

    Khamenei said:

    “Anyone who fires us a missile, we …”! he didn’t say, where? and who or witch country or the president! wants to fire missile to its regime?

    But with all this, and again in the same hollow gesture of power, it was recalled that it would not be possible for the same hollow speech to cause trouble, because he immediately pointed out that:

    “We do not take excitement and sentiment in the face of the violence of enemies, we do not care about the margins we create for us, and we will not enter the margins!”

    Every observer and every listener, hearing these words, quickly find out how much Khamenei is watching and strives to not speak the excuse! Give the opponent a hand!

    Khamenei spoke only about the regional gestures and spelled out words such as justice and defense of the Palestinian people and resistance, and what he did about Syria and Yemen and what he wanted to do. He did not say anything! While in these areas it’s is talking about the retreat of the regime. Khomeini tried to be somehow innocent! Show off and so, here, too, shot an else blank cartridge bullet!

     Khamenei’s only war bullet firing

     Khamenei, in course of this speech and after all his firing, launched a war warning on the mullahs regime’s president, Rouhani and launched a new round of gang battles and factional wars, blaming all his atomic failures on the head of the Rouhani. And implicitly blamed him as “only the culprit ” in Iran deal.

    The reason for this is also quite clear. Khamenei must find someone who is responsible for the failure of Iran deal and more than $ 100 billion in costs and its consequences in the region.

    But what is clear is that, of course, Rouhani and his gang will not remain silent, they will not leave Khamenei and his gang, and they will throw themselves under the water!

     

     

    But why did Khamenei do that? While he knows well, deepening the gap at the head of his rule will have serious social consequences!

    The answer is clear, Khamenei is well aware that he cannot do anything but he forced to shot again because of all the disasters he has made, and in any case, he must shoot somewhere and someone! Cheaper than Rouhani?! Unaware of the fact that this policy is more dangerous than any alternative due to the internal situation, and will increase the dichotomy at the top of the rule, and a more open field for popular movements in these gaps will be created!

    The fact that right up to now it is turned on and will become even clearer.

    Washington sanctions challenging Iranian regime’s terrorism funding 

    Sanctions against the clerical regime ruling Iran

    May 29, 2018 – Following U.S. President Donald Trump’s exiting the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iranian regime is now facing a series of unprecedented challenges in regards to its policies.

    Mousa Afshar, a member of the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Foreign Affairs Committee, shed light on this subject in a recent interview with a Jordanian outlet.

    “These sanctions will prevent the Iranian regime from providing financial support to its proxy militias in Yemen and across the region,” he said.

    “Tehran received $150 billion of its frozen assets through signing the nuclear deal. However, not even a dollar of this money has been spent on the Iranian people. In fact, all of it was used for terrorist militias in Syria, Yemen and Iraq,” Afshar explained.

    “Following the JCPOA exit we have seen U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recognizing the Iranian people’s uprising against the religious dictatorship and Washington calling for a global coalition to confront the Iranian regime’s support for terrorism,” he added.

    “Any new agreement with the Iranian regime must cover a variety of issues, most importantly ending Iran’s ballistic missile program, recognizing Iraq’s independence, disarming the Iranian regime’s militias in this country, completely withdrawing all militia groups in Syria, ending ballistic missile launches against its Persian Gulf neighbors and stopping the Iranian regime’s support for terrorist militias in Yemen,” Afshar continued.

    Blood money

    Iran has been able to take advantage of the JCPOA’s outcome and completely disrupt stability in the Middle East.

    “To compensate for their necessity of a nuclear bomb, [Iranian regime supreme leader] Ali Khamenei’s regime has attempted to place important areas of the region under its influence, and threatening regional countries with ballistic missiles,” Afshar said.

    “The Iran nuclear deal had many flaws and provided blood money to the Iranian regime, especially the Revolutionary Guards and Quds Force commander Qassem Suleimani,” he added. “The measures raised by Pompeo were carried out after the Iranian regime refused to abide by United Nations resolutions.”

    The Iranian regime received free and unjustifiable concessions through the JCPOA, such as “the lack of any serious inspections of nuclear sites” and no inspections over the released assets.

    In fact, these unprecedented concessions were the result of an appeasement policy adopted by the U.S. and Europe vis-à-vis the Iranian regime. The Iranian people, and nations across the region, expect such a drive to end. Only through such measures can the international community imagine to prevent the Iranian regime’s belligerence.

    Target Iran’s nuclear/terrorism threats for regime change 

    Iranian missile program, a menace to the security of the region

    Iranian missile program, a menace to the security of the region

    PMOI/MEK staff writer

    May 9, 2018 – Following the United State’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and fully impose powerful economic against Tehran, there will be an increase in discussions on the path forward from here.

    If the Middle East is to experience anything resembling peace, democracy, stability, and security, it is an inarguable necessity to first realize democratic change and end the mullahs’ rule in Iran.

    Tehran has taken advantage of several decades of appeasement, resulting in the suffering of the Iranian people and nations across the region. The history of billions flowing into Iranian regime bank accounts and pallets of cash flown into this country must come to an end.

    Iran’s sinister regime, understanding no language but the language of a firm and definitive policy, is beginning to see the end of a long and fruitful journey at the expense of many others.

    Tehran, being the world’s central banker of international terrorism, “has funded its long reign of terror by plundering the wealth of its own people,” according to U.S. President Donald Trump’s speech.

    It is worth noting how the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), of which the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is a member of, first blew the whistle back in 2002 on Iran’s clandestine nuclear program, highly suspicious of seeking nuclear weapons.

    Such an industrial scale effort is meaningless for a country sitting on an ocean of oil and natural gas. Especially when such a multi-billion dollar project is depriving millions of people struggling with poverty across the country.

    “Eradicating the clerical regime’s nuclear and terrorism threats means getting rid of the regime in its entirety. A regime based on the principle of Velayat-e faqih (absolute rule of the clergy) cannot exist without terrorism, suppression, and weapons of mass destruction,” said NCRIPresident Maryam Rajavi following the US decision.

    All banks and companies currently doing business with Iran are finding it extremely difficult to continue their endeavors. It is quite obvious that Iran’s $450 billion economy is no choice in the face of the U.S. $44 trillion economy.

    It is also a moral decision placed before everyone from all walks of life in the international community: to continue seeking short-term economic interests with Iran’s regime, or finally deciding to stand with the Iranian people in their quest for freedom, democracy, and human rights.

    Iran’s regime must also be stopped in its treks of warmongering, export of fundamentalism and terrorism, as explained by Mrs. Rajvi. It is quite interesting how standing alongside the Iranian people will actually further the long-term interests of the very parties currently appeasing the Iranian regime and only seeking short-term interests.

    Such a policy will also prevent Iran from launching a new war and bring an end to the ongoing wars already causing havoc across the region.

    The Iranian people proved once again in December and January how they seek liberation from the oppressive rulers sitting on the throne in Tehran.

    Democratic change is coming to Iran and each and every member of the international community must decide sooner or later where they stand on this very dire matter.

    As a necessity, the United Nations Security Council should take this opportunity and launch the global effort focusing on Iran’s long forgone human rights dossier, parallel to holding this regime accountable for its meddling throughout the Middle East and beyond, and advancing a dangerous ballistic missile program.

    Countless crimes have been committed by the Iranian regime inside the country and abroad. Steps are being taken against Tehran. More needs to be done and the Iranian regime must be held to the ropes until all those responsible for these crimes are placed before justice.

    Analysis: The isolation ring become tighter around the Mullahs regime 

    The isolation ring become tighter around the Mullahs regime

    The news and developments of these days indicate the tightening of the isolation ring of the Mullahs regime in the international arena.

    While the regime was hoping to Europe for escape the fate of US deadline on nuclear deal, Europe was on the path to aligning America’s policy with a voluntary response to Donald Trump’s call for coordination in six areas to force the regime moves to change.

    In this case, state media from both gangs of regime in Iran almost every day write about talks between US and EU about Iran Deal and expanding to other deals in relation of missile projects and Iran meddling in the region.

    Meanwhile on March 29, France’s Radio quoted by the Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Ludrian, accused Iran of supplying weapons to Yemen’s Houthi militia. This position took place following the firing of seven Houthi rockets to Saudi Arabia, and displayed pieces of these missiles by Saudi officials.

    • Wednesday, March 28, “Reuters” wrote quoted by diplomatic sources that representatives of EU member states at a meeting have discussed new missile sanctions against Iran. So the report, EU members are trying to finalize these sanctions until the April 16 meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Union. Meanwhile, the representative of Italy at the Brussels meeting announced that such sanctions are not enough to persuade Tramp to stay in Iran Deal. Italy and one other two countries believe that in order to persuade Tramp, they must apply more severe sanctions against the regime!

    Well, such news is still on the rise. The first question to start the discussion is what do we think about these news and events, and what are the reasons for this?

    As reported in the introduction to the article, these reports indicate a tightening of the isolation ring of the regime. The change and developments in the US foreign policy team, which is clearly indicative of a sharpening of US policy toward Iran, shows the same. Many diplomatic trips and diplomatic visits are taking place in these days. Including the visit of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to the United States, which, according to political observers, is the main theme of his apparent confrontation with the Mullahs regime and threats to the security of the region by the regime.

    The news, which is, of course, only part of the mass of developments available, continues to be added. On the contrary, the regime has begun a series of measures in its foreign relations. Rouhani‘s visit to Central Asia and efforts to strengthen economic relations with the northern neighbors, the visit of Kamal Kharrazi to Pakistan, the Zarif visit to the Balkans and the trip of the Foreign Minister of Oman to Iran are another aspect of this boiling space of foreign policy.

    There are other developments that are bad for the regime, like North Korea’s recent stance, which seems to want a deal with the United States and the West, which means that the United States and the international community are concentrating more on the regime.

    It is easy to see that as soon as we reach the end of the deadline of the United States (May 12th), these developments are accelerating, and the isolation ring gets tighter over the regime. The Mullahs regime has counted Europe on the issue of nuclear deal against the US government, but is clearly EU is beside of US, and it is itself setting up and adopting new sanctions against the regime, independent of the United States. The goal is to push the regime to stop its missile and terrorist interference in the region and withdraw its forces from Syria and …. By that time, the pressure on the regime will increase, the sanctions will increase, and everyone in this direction will tell the regime that there is no other way than to drink poisonous cups for a missile and a regional project and of course, the Human Rights poisonous cup will also be coming after that.

    The regime is also trying with all its power to refrain from drinking these poisonous cups. Because, according to Khamenei’s own words, this process is endless and ultimately leads to the negation of the regime of Velayat-e faqih. So we see that missile strikes continue to lead Saudi Arabia, which, of course, has different interpretations; an interpretation is that these gestures of demonstrative power indicate the regime’s decision to stand against the pressures of international community, and another interpretation of this is smoke and camouflage for a retreat. Because at the same time, we see a Zarif and Rouhani plea for negotiating with Saudi Arabia.

    However, there are two more ways ahead of the regime, and the regime has no other option. Either surrender and missile, regional interference, or stand up to the international community and accept its deadly consequences.

    Which is difficult to say which one is the most dangerous and deadly for the regime. It is important that the other regime, such as the nuclear deal, cannot make decisions and choices, and should be assigned in the coming days.
