    The Right Policy to Tackle Iranian Regime 

    Support Iranian resistance.jpg

    Earlier this month, following more than a year of speculation, Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, citing its failure to protect the US and its allies as well as a failure to address all of the problems of the Iranian Regime.

    The deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was struck by Permanent Members of the UN Security Council (the US, the UK, China, Russia, and France) and Germany in the hope that the Iranian mullahs would reform if invited into the fold of international diplomacy.

    However, there was no evidence that the Regime was capable of reform and plenty that they would continue their expansion and aggression. In the years since, it has become apparent that the signatories were wrong to trust Iran and foolish to release the billions of dollars in frozen assets to them.

    This money did not improve the lives of the ordinary Iranians, but increased the Regime’s military budget and allowed them to fund wars in Syria (where they are propping up Bashar al-Assad to the tune of $24 billion per year), Iraq and Yemen. While many other countries in the region suffer because of the Iranian Regime’s sponsorship of terrorist groups.

    Once a rich nation, the people of Iran has lost everything because of the mullahs. The Regime isn’t even trying to hide it anymore, with Brig. Gen. Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf revealing on national television that 96% of the population is poor and the other 4% takes everything. Iran has a wealth of natural resources, but their people remain in poverty.

    Not content with plunging their people into poverty, the Iranian Regime arrests about 50 people per hour, according to Hassan Mosavi Chalk, Director of Iran’s Social Services Association. Their ‘crimes’ can range from peaceful political activism to not fasting during Ramadan to being a woman and wearing ripped jeans.

    The Iranian people are naturally furious at the Regime for this neglect and abuse, which is why they first took to the streets in a nationwide uprising calling for regime change. The Regime met this protest with a brutal crackdown.

    Reza Shafiee, wrote: “What is left of the JCPOA windfalls – after paying proxy terrorist group bills in the region – is spent on a variety of security forces in Iran. The regime provides theses forces with state-of-the-art gears to come down hard on protesters.”

    That hasn’t stopped the demonstrations. It may even have made the Iranian people more intent on fighting back, especially after NCRI President Maryam Rajavi encouraged the protests.

    The right policy

    So what could be the right policy to tackle Iran? It seems the international community has tried just about everything and nothing has worked.

    Well simply, they should support the people’s call for regime change as this is the only thing that can remove Iran’s threat to the world as a whole.

    Iran, Kazerun in fire and blood: The mullahs regime once again showed its criminal face by opening fire to the people. The uprising continues until the overthrow of the regime. 

     

    Kazerun-1

    A number of wounded demonstrators in Kazerun

    Kazerun protests, from January to this day

    Iran, May 17, 2018 – The city of Kazerun in Fars Province of southern Iran ignited once again on Wednesday, May 16th. People from all walks of life protesting the Iranian regime’s policies rallied at the city’s Shohada (Martyrs) Square and marched towards the governor’s office.

    The demonstrators were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Beware of the day we are armed”

    “Proud Kazerunis, unite”

    “We’re ready to defend Kazerun”

    Protests in Kazerun began on January 2nd where demonstrators were heard chanting “Death to Dictator” and condemning the Iranian regime’s policies through slogans such as:

    “Let go of Syria, think about us”

    On March 8th locals rallied outside the city’s governor office, protesting a plot to divide their city into two towns.

    On April 9th locals continued these protests and continued into the following days.

    On April 17th thousands of Kazerun residents rallied in the city’s main square. Store-owners refused to open their shops. Protesters were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Protests will continue until we get our rights”

    “Proud Kazerunis, we will not give into shame”

    These demonstrations led to clashes between protesters & state police.

    On April 18th local officials claimed the plan to divide the city has come to a halt. Protesters, however, refused to accept these claims and demanded answers from the provincial governor himself.

    The next day protests in Kazerun reached a new climax, as thousands of locals held a demonstration while the city council, Friday prayer Imam, and state-run media had banned any protests. Women played a major role in this rally, emphasizing how unity among-st all of Iran’s people is needed to stand against this regime.

    The rally continued into Friday, April 20th. Tens of thousands of locals entered the city mosque and completely disrupted the regime’s farce prayers.

    Sunday, April 22nd – Oppressive police units were stationed at a market close to the Shohada (Martyr) Square to prevent any gatherings from taking shape.

    Friday, April 27th – Thousands of Kazerun locals rallied at the city’s main center, marching towards the Friday prayer site chanting:

    “If we are betrayed, we will rise once again”

    “We are from Kazerun, we won’t accept division”

    “Officials from other cities must resign”

    Thursday, May 3rd – Large rally staged outside the city mosque, again protesting plans to divide the city.

    Following Wednesday night’s protests, authorities dispatched a column of anti-riot units from Shiraz and reports indicate over 100 protesters were arrested.

    Youths and families of those arrested rallied outside the Kazerun Intelligence Department demanding the release of all protesters.

    At least two protesters have been killed and a large number of others are wounded, including numerous women.

    Locals of Seif Abad have reportedly blocked a road leading to Kazerun to prevent further dispatching of anti-riot units from Shiraz.

    Maryam Rajavi hailed the people and martyrs of Kazerun, urged dispatch of UN probe mission

    Deadly clashes erupted on Wednesday night (May 16, 2018) between residents and state security forces in Kazerun,  after the authorities launched a clampdown on a peaceful anti-regime protest in the city earlier in the day.

    Reports from activists at the scene suggest at least 2 protesters were killed, dozens were injured and up to 150 were arrested as the regime attempted to stifle further dissent. In the course of clashes, a police station and a police vehicle were set ablaze. Video clips via activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in the country.

    Wednesday night, the regime’s intelligence and State Security forces opened fire on people, killing a number of people protesting against the arrests of a large number of the city’s youths. More were wounded or arrested. At least two persons were shot to death according to reports from inside Iran.

    Kazerun wednesday night 16 May

    Kazerun, Wednesday night May 16, 2018

    In the wake of the regime’s criminal attacks Wednesday night on the defenseless people of Kazerun, the PMOI’s Social Headquarters inside Iran called on the residents of Kazerun and nearby cities to rush to the aid of the wounded and victims and support those arrested.

    The Iranian regime has disconnected Kazerun’s access to the internet and social media since last night to prevent spreading of the news of the city’s uprising. However, the ensuing clashes have been so extensive that the regime’s officials and news media had to make admissions on these protests.

    The people of Kazerun took to the streets once again this morning, Thursday, May 17, 2018, in protest to the clerical regime’s atrocities last night. The protesters were again attacked by the State Security forces and clashes broke out. Shootings and tensions have continued throughout the city.

    President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, hailed the heroic martyrs of Kazerun and the city’s brave and bereaved people. She has called for the immediate release of those arrested and urged her compatriots to rush to the aid of those wounded. Mrs. Rajavi also called for the dispatch of a UN investigative delegation and a representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to examine the situation first hand.

      The mullahs’ actions are nothing short of barbaric. The whole world should be openly denouncing their actions. The same for Israel and their murder of the Palestinian protesters.

    The gap from top to bottom in the clerical regime of Iran 

    The gap from top to bottom in the clerical regime of Iran

    By Masoud Dalvand

    The blow of US’s withdrawal from Iran Deal and its reflections within the regime is rising every day and worsens the battles of the gangs. One of the latest examples is the conflict between the Assembly of Experts(Khobregan) and the gang of regime’s president Mullah Rouhani Because of Iran Deal and the continuation of this event.

    In this regard, on May 13, a statement was issued by the Assembly of Experts against the Rouhani and in the direction of Khamenei‘s acquittal and blaming on the Iran Deal’s disgrace and called for a Rouhani apology from the people: “It is imperative that the honorable President, honestly and explicitly, apologize to the dear people of Iran for the damage caused by the failure of ” Iran deal” for lack of comply with the red lines drawn by the Supreme Leader of the Revolution and put the experience of “Iran deal” as a light on the way of future.»

    But still -according to a proverb- the ink of this statement not dried, the authenticity of the statement was questioned by a number of members of the Assembly of Experts, and this was denounced. Among the experts, including Mullah Hashem Zadeh Harrisi, stated that “This statement is not all the Experts. The request to apologize the president for the “Iran deal” is not the opinion of the Assembly of Experts … The society is feverish … these events only cause discomfort and despair of the people … ”

    Mullah Moghtadaei was another member of the Assembly of Experts, who stated: “The opposition of Rouhani’s state inside the country, in the current situation, should not be as happy as Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has.”

    Another expert, Mullah Abtahi, also said that the statement of the experts was not the opinion of all the members and that if I knew I would not sign the statement. And finally there were other people involved in the fight.

    Is this war and fights a continuation of the conflicts and controversies that have always been in the regime, or a new phenomenon and its own characteristics? with a little thinking about these conflicts, we see they are continuation of the same contradictions, but to another credit, we face a new quality of accumulation and congestion and the evolution of those contradictions. Why so:

    First of all, we see now that war and conflict are at the top and the highest point of the regime’s power pyramid.

    Secondly, all organs and institutions of the regime from the parliament to the Assembly of Experts and to the Revolutionary Guards, the government, the judiciary, and so on have involved.

    Thirdly, we also see the gap in these institutions. For example, in the parliament we are witnessing the clash of representatives of the two gangs. Or, in the Assembly of Experts, it was not until now that the experts took a position and made a statement, and some of its members would take a stand and speak against it.

    We see these gaps in the Rouhani’s gang and even within the state. For example, Rouhani’s adviser criticizes to his government minister, or the media criticize it from various positions.

    Is this conflict between the Experts and the government and within the limits of these two institutions above the regime? And why do we call it a fight and a gap at the head of the regime?!

    No! When we say that the struggle at the top of the regime, the war is at the point of Khamenei, which said on Wednesday (May 2, 2018): I said if you want to get the contract, take the necessary guarantees and then close them. One of the conditions I said was that the US president should sign. The respectable officials worked hard and, well, they could not. And then he added: “I do not trust these three countries (European Troika) … If you could make sure that it’s okay, of course I’m unlikely to know. If you cannot get a definitive guarantee, you will not be able to continue.

    This led to various statements in the media by Rouhani’s gang, including in the May 13 meeting, the parliament they chanted Khamenei whose accomplishment “Iran deal”, from the first to the last, was led by Khamenei and was signed. Then the Khamenei’s propagandists said that, they forced Khamenei to made such orders, but Rouhani’s government did not listen to Khamenei’s advices.

    Meanwhile, the government of Rouhani did not keep silent and issued a statement of eight articles entitled “Those who have smashed, now have been creditors instead of apologizing, do not contradict “, replied to the statement of the Assembly of Experts, denounced their position and, in addition to emphasizing Khamenei’s role, was raised. Tell us what to do, tell us what to do if we did not sign, and if we do not do it now, what to do.

    Part of this statement reads:

    “Unfortunately, those who have to apologize for their misplaced positions in the past are creditor for national achievements and are not willing to answer the question of how damaging the outrageous sanctions on the Iranian nation have been and what they have done to prevent them from timely prevention. They are never ready to speak of their inability to provide alternative ways of “Iran deal” and to apologize to the nation for their misleading approach to progress in the country. In an obvious contradiction they were worried about America’s presence in “Iran deal” and the other hand they have been as plaintiff of US’s withdrawal of Iran deal.

    In addition to the government itself, supporters of the government and other members of the Rouhani’s gang attacked the Assembly Experts. Including:

    Ali Motahhari‘s reaction to Ahmad Jannati’s letter about “Iran deal” was:

    Do you determine the religious duty of the diplomatic system or your supreme leader?

    Interestingly, the parties to the dispute, despite the fact that they are aware of the danger of the situation and read the unity’s weep of one another, cannot even temporarily establish cease-fire between themselves.

    The reason is that the fuel of this war is a dangerous situation and the prospect of the overthrow of this regime. But they are not able to stop it. Because in the current situation is not the field for compromise, the crisis bedside, in itself, promotes war, but it is important that the ruling gangs with this conflict constantly weak each other and the whole regime and pave the way for the overthrow of the religious dictatorship by the people’s uprising led by the Iranian resistance. This is the logic of history and they do not escape it.

    Iran Freedom Convention rallies bipartisan support for regime change in Iran 

    Iranian American Covention in Washington on Freedom in Iran

    Iranian American Covention in Washington on Freedom in Iran

    PMOI/MEK,6 April 2018—  On Saturday, representative from Iranian communities from 40 U.S. states gathered in Washington to attend the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights. Also attending were distinguished U.S. politicians, including President Donald Trump’s cybersecurity advisor Rudy Giuliani and Former Governor Bill Richardson.

    The speakers of the event voiced their support for the uprisings of the Iranian people and stressed the need for a firm policy vis-à-vis the regime of Iran, which is the record-holder of executions and a renowned state-sponsor of terrorism.

    In a televised speech to the gathering, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), thanked the participants for their support for the aspirations of the Iranian people for the establishment of freedom and democracy in their country. Referring to the uprisings that spread across the country in December and January, Mrs. Rajavi stressed that the people of Iran “seek the overthrow of the clerical regime in its entirety” and call “on the international community, in particular, the West, to support their uprising.”

    Mrs. Rajavi iterated the unwarranted concessions given to the mullahs as a result of the nuclear pact signed between the Iranian regime and six world powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and reminded that the Iranian resistance had at the time emphasized the need for the complete dismantlement of the regime’s nuclear program. The JCPOA effectively granted the Iranian regime free pass on its human rights violations and terrorist meddling in neighboring countries in exchange for limited caps on its nuclear activities. “Evicting the regime from the Middle East and preventing its regional meddling… is a fundamental principle that needs to be included in any agreement,” Mrs. Rajavi had said at the time.

    Mrs. Rajavi also stated that the regime is in a critical state and the Iranian people are ready for more uprisings, and she underlined the need to neutralize the efforts of the regime and its cohorts to promote the policy of appeasement and the importance to be the voice of the Iranian people across the world.

    Video:  If you can’t see the subtitle, please click on the button “CC” to read the English subtitle:

    Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle sent recorded messages to the convention and expressed their support for the cause of freedom in Iran.

    In his keynote speech, Mayor Giuliani underlined the bipartisan support for the Iranian resistance in the U.S. He also spoke of his meeting with the members of PMOI/MEK in Albania and voiced his admiration for their efforts and determination in freeing their country.

    Giuliani stressed that, in contrast to the previous administration, which did not support the 2009 uprisings in Iran, the current president of the United States will not turn his back on the people of Iran and is a vocal supporter of regime change in Iran. He also said that, contrary to other countries in the region, which underwent turmoil and chaos after revolutions, Iran has an organized alternative that can see to a peaceful transition in the country after the toppling of the regime.

    Gov. Richardson stressed that the Iranian regime is nearing its end. He also praised the Iranian opposition and its leader, Mrs. Rajavi, for the sacrifices they’ve made to achieve freedom in their country.

    Iran: New protests in Kazerun with chants of “Beware of the day when we arm ourselves.” 

    Kazerun

    On Friday, April 20, 2018, thousands of residents of Kazerun, southern Iran, staged anti-regime protests for the fifth consecutive day.

    People also gathered in the city’s grand mosque and denounced the regime’s plan to divide the city.

    The demonstration was held while the city’s so-called city council, Friday prayers’ leader and state media had announced that all gatherings were banned until the Kazerun city separation plan is determined.

    The angry protesters chanted:

    “Honorable Iranians, support us,”

    “Honorable Kazerun, hail to your dignity,”

    “Our state TV is a disgrace,”

    “Beware of the day when we arm ourselves. If we are betrayed, hell will be raised against the regime”

    and

    “We are ready to defend Kazerun.”

     

     

     

     

     

    Following the courageous demonstration of the people of Kazerun, some local authorities announced on Wednesday that the plan for the separation of Kazerun was being paused. However, people did not pay any attention to the regime’s promises and demanded the governor respond.

    Solidarity of protests, promising of storm 

    Solidarity of protests, promising of storm

    On November 20, 2017, Iran’s Interior Minister said that in some days, have seen 150 protests in the country. Those protests that Khamenei’s interior minister said, just 37 days later, became a tsunami called the great uprising of the Iranian people. The uprising of December 28, 2017!

    These days, the rise of protest movements across Iran is a witness to the live and active volcano of January uprising. An uprising, which has experienced a few months ago, and more powerful than before, has opened a darker horizon in front of eyes of the regime with thousands of inflammatory societies centers, around the country.

    A look at a small portion of the protest movements, demonstrations and strikes in recent days, reflects the social status of Iran on the verge of another revolution.

    The main protest movements have been recorded in various forms of protest and strike in the cities of Isfahan, Ahvaz, Rasht, Kerman, Tehran, Khark Island, Kazerun, Javanrood, Damghan, Kohkiluyeh&BoyerAhmad province, Baluchistan and Baneh in the Kurdistan province.

    These moves have been formed by farmers, workers, employees, young people, Bazar merchants, students, depositors, porters and marketers in border towns, political prisoners and detainees’ families.

    The most prolonged and flaming protest movements have been organized by Isfahan farmers since the winter of 2018, With slogans that are getting hotter and more political day by day:

     “It’s a lie that our enemy is America, our enemy is here.”

    Courageous women played a significant role in the demonstrations of farmers in Isfahan and played a leading role in some demonstrations.

    In the Iranian new year of 1397 (spring 2018), we witnessed an intensifying fire of anger and disgust at the brave compatriots of Kurd from the Mullahs regime, and in recent days in various cities of Kurdistan, shopkeepers and Bazar merchants have been struggling to make widespread striking.

    In Ahvaz, Shush and HaftTapeh and other cities of Khuzestan, people, especially Arab nationals, rose up and protested against the fascist regime.

    Workers who are aware and tired of tyranny and inhuman exploitation Mullahs regime, provoked the flames of protest against the regime in different cities of the country.

    The plundered people by plunderer institutes of regime, in various cities of the country, students and other social classes also contributed to the recent protest movements. This is a small part of the people’s protest movement in just the last few weeks.

    The maturity of the slogans in this period has grown from the specific and guild demands to the slogans of the government’s negation, against the regime:

    Death to the Rouhani

    What have the hands behind the curtain done, with our money?

    Lies say our enemy is America, our enemy is here,

    We are men and women fighting for the right to water

    We fight We dye, to take Iran back

    Hossein Hussein is their slogan, but their honor is stealing,

    Student! get stand up! shout it out the cry has strangled in the throat

    Reflection of the anti-government slogans of the people can be seen in the statements of the leaders and government agents who warn against the social blast and the sinking of the regime’s ship.

    “It’s likely that there will be a series of incidents and threats this year,” said an IRGC head GholamReza Jalali, director of the regime’s passive defense organization April 17. “In a general look, the focus of the threats on the people’s axis is one of the main threats and the enemy seeks to create a problem in the Islamic Revolution in different areas, including social, political, economic and cultural spheres, and can be passed through the social network to the people and engage people”.

    “In late December 2017 and January 2018, we saw a pattern of this issue, the issue of people-centered, economic and social networks in the field of threats is being seriously influenced by the enemy’s efforts to pursue these issues in the security field.”

    What scares this IRGC member, is the multiplication of social movements in rebellion centers. The centers that represent the 1000 Ashraf (as guide of rebellion centers) and have raised the flag of overthrow of the regime with the slogan “Death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih and the burning of Khamenei’s images in the cities of the country.”

    Another day of Iran protests by farmers in Isfahan 

    23

    On Wednesday, April 11, Iranian farmers and local people held a demonstration in Isfahan, central Iran.

    A mother in the demonstration shouted during the demonstration that was against lack of water:

    “Until water flows in the river we will not go home”.

    Local merchants in the Khorasgan district of Isfahan went on a general strike on Wednesday in support of the protesting farmers.

    The protest is related to the re-routing of the Zayanderud River by the authorities, which has destroyed the regional agriculture.

    The regime’s suppressive forces tried in vain to disperse the crowds. The protesters chanted slurs at a police commander who pleaded with people over the megaphone to leave the site of the rally.

    Among the protesters’ chants were:

    “Leave Syria alone, think of us instead”.

    “Today’s a day of mourning”.

    “Our enemy is right here, even though they claim it is America”.

    “Farmers are prepared to die, but they will not accept dishonor”.

    A separate anti-regime protest took place on Wednesday in Ziar, central Iran, after a local resident identified only as Ismail was arrested by the regime during the farmers’ protest in nearby Isfahan. The protesters in Ziar lit tires in the middle of the streets and chanted slogans including:

    “Farmers’ rights have been betrayed for 18 years.”
