    Terrorism; Iran’s Regime 4-Decade Blackmailing Tool 

    Iran’s Regime Terrorism

    For years, Iran’s regime has incessantly used terrorism as a blackmailing tool and has never ceased it. Its recent seizure of the British oil tanker and its continued support of the vicious Bashar al-Assad regime and terrorist groups such as Hezbollah, Hamas and Houthis, proves the fact that terrorism is institutionalized within this regime. Is the regime’s terrorism limited to its neighboring countries?  Is it simply against its dissidents? What is solution? These are the questions we intend to answer in this article.

    Iran’s terrorism and assassinations of its political opponents

    Iran’s regime has not only oppressed its opponents inside Iran but has carried out dozens of terrorist plots abroad against them, particularly in Europe. The most recent example was a failed bombing plot in Paris, France, in 2018 against the annual “Free Iran” gathering of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, NCRI. The attack was planned by the diplomats of the regime in Europe.

    The regime’s embassies in Europe, are proven to be centers of terrorism and espionage and have played a key role in Iran’s assassinations.

    On April 24, 1990, in Geneva, several agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security of Iran murdered in broad daylight, Prof. Kazem Rajavi, the representative of the NCRI in Switzerland.

    Rajavi’s assassination required enormous resources, extensive planning, and coordination among several of the regime’s organizations. After thorough investigations, Roland Chatelaine, the Swiss magistrate in charge of the case, and Swiss judicial and police officials confirmed the role of Iran’s government under Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, then-president of the regime, and the participation of thirteen official agents of the Iranian regime who had used “service passports” to enter Switzerland for their plot.

    A partial list of terrorist attacks conducted by the Iranian regime abroad include the following:

    • Assassination Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou, the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic party, in Vienna, Austria, in 1989
    • The assassination of Shapour Bakhtiar, the last Prime Minister of the Shah regime, in Suresnes, France 1991
    • The assassination of Kurdish opposition leaders in Berlin, Germany, in 1992
    • The kidnapping and mutilation of Ali Akbar Ghorbani, MEK member, in Turkey, in 1992
    • The assassination of Mohammad Hossein Naghdi, NCRI member, in Rome, Italy, in 1993
    • The assassination of Zahra Rajabi, NCRI member, in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1996

    Iran’s use of terrorism as a blackmailing tool

    the Iranian regime has a long history of attempting to carry out terrorist operations in foreign countries for putting pressure on the western governments to pursue the policy of appeasement.

    An example is the bombing of the barracks of U.S. Marines in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983 which was conducted by the Revolutionary Guards Corps, IRGC.

    Four years later, on July 20, 1987, Mohsen Rafiqdoust, the former IRGC Minister, officially stated, “Americans know that the explosive that combined with that ideology and sent 400 American soldiers and officers to hell, both the ideology and the explosive material came from Iran.”

    to the long list of regime’s terrorist activities, we could add: The Khobar towers in Saudi Arabia in the mid-90s, and the Jewish community in Argentina in 1994.

    Iran’s regime also takes foreign nationals as hostages and uses them as bargaining chips to put pressure on their countries of origin. This practice continues to this day.

    What is the solution?

    After reviewing Iran’s regime history of terrorism, it becomes clear that this regime will continue its terrorism, unless firmly confronted.

    Recent approach of the European countries and their persistence on the appeasement policy only emboldens this regime to continue its nefarious activities. Europe should realize that the Iranian regime’s terrorism is not limited to Iranian dissidents—it also threatens European countries and their citizens.

    But the main question is: Does terrorism show the Iranian regime’s strength or is a sign of weakness? It is clear that a popular, pluralistic and well-established government never seeks terrorism or destabilizing other countries. The actions of Iran’s regime are desperate moves to export its internal problems abroad and continue is blackmailing campaign.

    The solution lies in standing firm against the Iranian regime’s state-sponsored terrorism.

    Understanding the Current State of the Iranian Regime 

    Crises are engulfing the regime ruling Iran

    These days, the fascist regime ruling Iran is in the worst state of its 40-year history, surrounded by a multitude of political, social and economic crises. Iranian officials are regularly confessing to their regime’s deadlock and their incapacity to find a way out.

    In contrast, the Iranian resistance and the people of Iran are gaining momentum with every passing day, especially after putting behind one of the greatest political acts of their history.

    In this short piece, we will briefly examine the current status of the Iranian regime.

    To understand the current state of the Iranian regime and its supreme leader Ali Khamenei, one must not listen to the official statements of the regime’s officials and its media. The real state of the regime is reflected in undisclosed discussions and developments that are happening within the regime.

    Iranian regime president Hassan Rouhani regularly says that the current state of his regime is even worse than the time of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war.

    Ali Rabiei, the spokesperson of Rouhani’s government and a veteran torturer and interrogator in the 1980s, stated it more clearly. “The current sanctions can’t be compared to the previous round of sanctions. I’ve seen that sometimes their comparing these two eras, but it’s incomparable,” Rabiei said on July 14.

    Meanwhile, analysts with ties to the regime constantly try to find evidence and documents to prove that the regime is on the right side and the U.S. is on the wrong side of the history, and thus try to boost the morale of the regime’s troops and prevent its shaking ranks from collapsing.

    In this regard, on July 15, the state-run Mehr news agency ran a piece on a supposed interview with one of the former members of the U.S. nuclear negotiations team. “One of the former members of the nuclear negotiations teams from the U.S., Richard Nephew, who is renowned for being the architect of sanctions [against the Iranian regime] during Obama’s presidency, said, ‘The U.S. can’t return to the trigger mechanism, and therefore the reinstatement of the sanctions will be difficult,'” Mehr wrote.

    On the other hand, other state-run newspapers, while trying not to portray a critical situation, can’t paint a better picture.

    For instance, Arman, a newspaper that is closely tied to Rouhani’s faction, wrote on July 15, “Currently, the U.S. is effectively rallying the international community in its favor. Tehran is no in difficult conditions. The Europeans have shown that they can’t stand up against the U.S. Therefore, with the current situation, the main concern is to settle the issue in a way that doesn’t lead to military confrontation.”

    Meanwhile, Keyhan, which reflects the views of Khamenei, also on July 15 ran a piece that caused much concern within the regime. Keyhan wrote, “For 12 years, world powers accused [the regime] for developing nuclear bombs. After years this illusion had faded due to the negotiations, yet the case of the Possible Military Dimension of Iran’s nuclear program was not closed. In recent days we witnessed the session of the IAEA at the demand of the U.S., in which they issued a resolution, stressing that instead of PMD, the [regime’s] nuclear program has military dimensions and our activities in the past were illegal. Signing the nuclear deal turned these allegations to a credible and lawful international document. Therefore, the tension is interminable.”

    Keyhan Also pictured regime’s isolation: “We are not having problems only with world powers. We face problems in dealing with countries in the Middle East such as the Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE.”

    These tensions have pushed the regime to edge, causing constant panic for its authorities, therefore it is looking for a credible mediator in order to defuse tensions. 

    Whether the news is right or wrong, engineered or not, picture one hard reality:  the Iranian regime is at a dead end and cannot get out of it unless it backs down from its so-called “principals” and yields so the demands of the international community. However, doing so will irreversibly damage the entire regime; right at a time when its viable alternative, the NCRI and MEK, are gaining momentum with their series of massive gathering and marches from Brussels, Washington, D.C. to Berlin, with Stockholm and London still on schedule.

    And at its peak in Ashraf -3, as well as the activities of the MEK Resistance Units inside Iran.

    Rising prices, poverty and homelessness, the results of mullahs’ rule in Iran 

    Iran, July 9, 2019 – In a recent article, Keyhan, the news outlet that reflects the views of the Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei, acknowledged the country’s unsolvable housing crisis. “A person who could live in an 80-meter house with an 800-million-rial bond and 4-million-rial monthly rent last year must pay 12 million rials to rent the same house this year,” Keyhan wrote on July 1.

    The housing problem has become so critical that some of Iran’s people have foregone buying or renting homes and have resorted to living in tents.

    “The people no longer have the power to pay for rent. The problem has become so serious that I’ve received calls from people in my constituent, asking to receive tents from the Red Crescent to continue living in tents in parks. This has become a national issue,” said Ahmad Safari, a member of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) from Kermanshah.

    The state-run Resalat newspaper wrote on July 2, “More than 40 percent of the Iranian population is under the line of poverty. The rich are becoming richer and the poor poorer. The tax system is in total service of the rich. The banking system has put 70 percent of its wealth into the hands of 2.5 percent of the society.”

    Abrar-e Eqtesadi newspaper wrote on July 3, “The price of some food items has increased by 300 percent.”

    Ironically, before coming to Iran, Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the mullahs’ regime, had promised to build homes and give free water, electricity and transportation to Iranians. However, after 40 years, his regime has only achieved poverty and misery for the people of Iran.

    The current situation in Iran is the direct result of systematic embezzlement by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and other institutions of the regime, which has come directly out of the pockets of the Iranian people.

    At the end of 2017, people in more than 140 cities across Iran poured into the streets despite the heavy presence of security forces and the regime’s brutal suppressive measures. Many of them were fed up with the corruption and mismanagement that of regime officials, which has driven their lives into poverty, inflation and unemployment.

    The protests, which continue to this day, blame the regime and its destructive domestic and foreign policies for the current economic conditions in Iran.

    The protesters are regularly chanting:

    “Let go of Syria, think about us!”

    “One less embezzlement and our problems will be solved”

    “Death to dictator”

    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.

    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.
