    Acknowledging Iran’s regime has no future 

     

    Iran is facing multiple crisis internally

    Iran is facing multiple crisis internally

    Remarks heard from Iranian regime officials in regards to the dilemmas facing the mullahs’ apparatus has reached a critical point. If these comments were expressed just a year ago, they would be considered a crime, and literally opposing the state and Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself.

    These remarks, however, have become very common these days.

    Various figures are questioning the very essence of the mullahs’ regime and their so-called constitution. Tajzadeh, the interior minister’s political deputy during the tenure of former president Mohammad Khatami, is placing his cross hairs on the position of the Supreme Leader itself.

    “The first and biggest mistake of all… was including the supreme leadership position in the constitution… the revolution steered away from being a republic to more of a despotism. In the constitution, we have provided vast authority to the supreme leader, without holding the individual accountable… This is enough to make the entire political system completely ineffective,” he said.

    These remarks actually signal the regime’s deep concerns regarding the boiling domestic unrest and the intensifying international isolation. The fact that such individuals, who were screened vigorously before being appointed as senior regime officials, are resorting to such remarks is quite telling about the weak status quo of senior officials and the entire regime apparatus.

    “Resolving the crisis of our entity lacking a future and resolving fears about the future cannot be realized through promises, speeches and/or reports. Today, relieving remarks made by political figures and directors are no longer effective,” Iranian regime figure Jabbar Rahmani said, according to the state-run IRNA news agency on October 1st.

    Faeze Hashemi, the daughter of former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani (now dead), also made interesting comments to EuroNews.

    “We cannot run the country with policies dating back to the first years after the 1979 revolution… the status quo has become so critical that Mr. Mesbah Yazdi (a senior mullah close to Khamenei) says we have less than five friends across the globe,” she said.

    Ali Younesi, a former intelligence minister, has recently questioned the epicenter of all the policies stated in the regime’s constitution.

    “I suggest to those in the Intelligence Ministry to not stand against the people. Inside the country, be very careful to avoid taking measures against the people,” he warned.

    All these figures agree on the one subject of a major restructuring necessary in the regime’s ruling apparatus.

    “Methods and policies must change, and reforms are needed in the state’s structure,” according to former Iranian regime president Mohammad Khatami.

    Faeze Rafsanjani also acknowledged, “We must accept the fact that we made mistakes. If the policies were correct in the past, they’re not so now. We have no other choice.”

    “The harsh truth is that the society can start crumbling. This can be realized very quickly,” said Rahmani.

    During the past year, and specifically after the Dec/Jan uprising to this day, a variety of figures inside the Iranian regime have been voicing such concerns. Ever since the people began rebuking the mullahs’ regime in its entirety, and especially targeting Khamenei himself, these figures have started to realize that their days are numbered.

    The mullahs’ regime in Iran is fundamentally against the people and cannot be reformed. In their street protests during the Dec/Jan uprising, the Iranian people were heard specifically chanting:

    “Reformists, principalists, GAME OVER!” or  “Reformists, Hardliner, Game is Over Now”

    This medieval and repressive regime will be overthrown by the protesting Iranian people and Resistance Units linked to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

    Iran: Figures acknowledging the regime’s utter failure 

    Iran_s protests continue to boil

    Acknowledging the complete failure of the mullahs’ ideology in Iran is nothing new. The fact that the Iranian regime’s state media are discussing this subject and the current crises due to the regime’s corrupt apparatus is what is quite new indeed.

    New remarks are heard questioning even Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself, and directly or indirectly consider him the main individual responsible for the current crises and status quo, signals a growing sign of unrest and dissent inside the country.

    Abolfazl Ghadiani and Alireza Rajaie, two figures known for their close relations with the Iranian regime apparatus, issued a statement published in a variety of media outlets discussing this subject.

    “The Islamic republic is now engulfed in a flood of crises and it is the target of numerous daily attacks from different sources. Pretending to be calm and having self-confidence will not resolve any of the countless dilemmas, including apprehensions, detentions, and executions,” the statement reads.

    “The newly found power oligarchy seen after the 1979 revolution established entity after entity to maybe be able to overcome the increasing crises. The [regime] has filed time and again. It was inside this oligarch that various circles of power and wealth came to life due to their access to government money. These entities consider the government and the country as their own economic playground, and are specifically in contrast with democratic demands, religious and ethnic minorities, and freedom of the press.”

    Questioning the complete apparatus of the religious fascism ruling Iran currently is not a subject limited to these two individuals.

    In response to this expanding wave of challenging the mullahs’ religious dictatorship, figures close to Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei are heard raising their voices.

    “Necessary measures must be taken in the face of seditions. Why must [Khamenei’s] words be heard and no action be taken?” said Mullahs Sedighi, the temporary Friday prayer imam in Tehran.

    It is quite interesting that the figures now challenging Khamenei’s methods were once among the utmost loyalists to the mullahs’ rule.

    The truth is that protests are spreading in Iran and the organized resistance movement is gaining force, making a growing number of figures inside the Iranian regime extremely concerned about their own future.

    Furthermore, Khamenei lacks the power, influence, and capability to take actions against such voices. This weakness is realized by all of Iran’s society and a growing number of people no longer fear the crackdown imposed by the regime’s security apparatus.

    This is allowing the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) to increase the number of resistance units across the country.

    Such entities are escalating their measures against the regime and reigniting hope and courage in the hearts of a restive Iranian population that will no longer tolerate the religious dictatorship’s crackdown.

    Maryam Rajavi: Massacred heroes inspire protesters in revolting cities 

    Maryam-Rajavi--Massacred-heroes-inspire-protesters-in-revolting-cities-10

    Iranian communities’ global conference upholds 30th anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners

    A global video conference was held by Iranian communities on Saturday, August 25, 2018, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran upon Khomeini’s decree for the genocide in 1988. The conference connected 20 cities in France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Romania and Canada. A number of political dignitaries attended and addressed the conference where members and representatives of Iranian communities in Europe and Canada participated and delivered speeches. A number of eyewitnesses to the massacre and former political prisoners also testified at this event.
    The conference started with remarks by Maryam Rajavi, honoring the heroes of 1988 and elaborating on their impact as an inspiration to the steadfastness of the organized Iranian Resistance for freedom and nationwide uprisings in Iran. Following is the full text of her remarks:

    Distinguished personalities, dear guests,
    Families of martyrs,
    Sisters and brothers who have spent long years under torture in the dungeons of the Shah and the clerical regime,
    Friends of the Iranian Resistance who have joined us today in France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Romania, and Canada,
    I salute you all.

    Iranian communities’ global conference upholds 30th anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners

    Thirty years have passed since the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran, but the mullahs could not conceal their blood-drenched epical resistance. Neither could their international appeasers undermine this incident in favor of the Iranian regime.

    Today, those massacred heroes are not physically among us. The locations of their graves are not known and the list of their names is a secret. Speaking of their stories is forbidden and inquiring about their fate is a crime. Their song, however, continues to resonate in our hearts and minds.

    On the 30th anniversary of this unforgettable epic, let us rise and honor the memory of the 30,000 red roses of the Iranian Resistance by a minute-long applaud.

    According to the information compiled and published by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran in a book entitled, Crime Against Humanity, our sisters and brothers were executed in 110 Iranian cities in a matter of a few months in 1988.

    Now, those fameless towns have turned into hubs of uprisings, and those subdued cities have turned into hotbeds of revolt.

    Let us look at Gohardasht of Karaj as an example. Thirty years ago, the resistant political prisoners in this city were lined up in long queues and led to corridors where they were hanged from the gallows. Three weeks ago, however, Gohardasht of Karaj turned into a battle field where courageous youth and resistance units waged an uprising.
    In Shapour-e Jadid of Isfahan, in Shahinshahr, in Izeh, Dezful and Ahvaz, in Malayer, Baneh and Orumiyeh, in Zahedan and Bandar Abbas, and in Kazerun and Arak, people still remember the heroes who were hanged here and there from the gallows.
    They remember their cause and why they sacrificed their lives, and why they persevered in defending their principles to the end.

    The town of Aran in Kashan well remembers her child, Dr. Mansour Paydar, who used every opportunity to treat the poor and the destitute free of charge. He was arrested on his way to join the National Liberation Army and was executed in 1988.

    Shahroud remembers Mahmoud Hassani who wrote a poem in prison: “At nights, when you see a glowing comet in the sky, remember the blazing flames who were extinguished in the cold nights of Evin.”

    Shiraz remembers Fatemeh Zare’ii, the PMOI’s candidate for the first parliamentary elections in Iran. Mahidasht of Kermanshah remembers Daryoush Reza’ii who escaped the torture chambers of Dizelabad Prison, but was rearrested and executed in 1988 along with another PMOI prisoner from Ilam, Behzad Pour Nowrouz.

    Isfahan remembers Fariba Omoumi. Astara remembers Mohammad Reza Saradar Rashti, and Rezvanshahr remembers Houriyeh Ramezani Nejad.

    Mahallat bears lots of memories from Parviz Salimi; Qom remembers Effat Assadi; Saveh remembers Azar Kowsari; Boroujerd remembers Jamshid Assadi, and Lahijan bears memories of Mohammad Sami’zadeh. Khoy remembers Ashraf Mo’ezzi, and Naghadeh remembers Bahman Shakeri who was popular among both Kurdish and Turkish compatriots.

    And Masjid Soleiman is never going to forget Ali Salehi, as Izeh remembers Nahid Kaykavous Nejad forever.

    These names and memories have become eternal in the historic conscience of our society, lending a restless spirit of resistance and revolt to our cities and villages, inspiring the ultimate freedom of our homeland, Iran.

    Former political prisoners have frequently told me that the brave PMOI prisoners chose Massoud Rajavi, the leader of the Iranian Resistance, in the most difficult and intolerable conditions when their choices and loyalty to their cause were being put to test. Those brave souls looked into the eyes of their torturers and interrogators and hailed Massoud Rajavi, or kissed the gallows in his name.

    Without doubt, they had a message by repeating this most forbidden name of our time. Their message to the generations succeeding them was: O’ you, the young men and women, who hear our unfinished stories, you should undertake the path and the cause of Massoud Rajavi! The path of struggle for a society devoid of oppression and exploitation, devoid of suppression and tyranny, and devoid of ignorance and deception. This path and this cause are translated into the sacred word of freedom.

    Dear friends,
    In a verdict which constitutes the most irrefutable document on this genocide, Khomeini issued the order for the massacre and wrote in his own handwriting, “Those who continue to persist on their positions of hypocrisy in prisons across the country are considered as Mohareb (the enemy of God), punishable by death.”

    The question is, what was the position they persisted on and why did Khomeini ruthlessly sentence them to death? What was their crime?

    Their crime was standing up for freedom of the people of Iran, standing up against suppression of all freedoms, standing up against starvation of people, and standing up against destruction of Iran.

    They executed the prisoners for their beliefs. This is an incredible catastrophe but this is what the inhuman clerical regime is all about. Their reaction to dissent, even inside prisons under their own control, is mass executions.

    This is what the mullahs’ theocracy is all about. Any protest and any legitimate demonstration is repressed by detention and torture of participants.

    In the uprisings last December and January, what was the protesters’ demand and what did they do wrong to be tortured to death? The bodies of a number of them were handed over to their families, telling them that they had committed suicide while in detention.

    This is what the velayat-e faqih regime is about. It commits the crime and yet blames the victims of torture and massacre as culprits and criminals.

    In the face of such a monster, is it right to give in, or to stand up, resist and fight back?

    Where can you find a dictator that does not accuse the people’s just and legitimate resistance of terrorism, or who does not try to get rid of freedom lovers and opponents by accusing them of violence? Indeed, which dictator, tyrant or despot has given up on his crimes by silence and surrender of his victims?

    Those who dress down freedom fighters and dissidents for getting tortured or executed, and blame protesters and the oppressed people for getting suppressed, they echo the hypocrite mullahs.

    Dear friends,
    The 1988 massacre is a major demarcation between the people of Iran and their enemies, separating them into two opposing fronts. There are those who try to hush up the massacre, seeking not only to defend the masterminds and perpetrators of this crime, but to fend off the haunting specter of freedom, popular sovereignty and overthrow of the clerical tyranny.

    The so-called reformists, or the regime’s proponents who were totally rejected in the course of the recent uprisings, are still trying to find a way out for the velayat-e faqih but the massacre of 1988 has unraveled their schemes.

    The people of Iran ask them why did they conceal the massacre? What were they doing and what were their roles as this massacre was being carried out? And why are they silent, now?

    The truth is that the resistance of the massacred prisoners has posed a great challenge to the regime’s factions and their accomplices. At the same time, such steadfastness has been the dignified answer of the prisoners to the homicidal Khomeini who had left them with only two options: Surrender or die!

    They sacrificed their lives but sowed the seeds of rising and revolt.

    Thirty years on, the dispute continues to be over adherence to this ideal and resisting for it, an ideal which is today being espoused by the resistance units inside Iran. They are called the forces of overthrow. As Massoud Rajavi has pointed out, “The genuine response, and the essential and real answer, have always been and will continue to be in waging a fierce battle at the highest possible magnitude, such that it would escalate through resistance units, lead to the National Liberation Army, and shatter the troops of the anti-human enemy.”

    Fellow compatriots and dear friends,
    The clerical regime is beleaguered by the eight-month-long uprisings, by the growing role of the PMOI and resistance units in organizing and leading the revolts, and by the consequences of a plummeting and drowning economy. To break out of this deadlock, the mullahs sought to target the Resistance’s gathering in Paris on June 30 by a terrorist explosion.

    In March, they had tried another terrorist scheme against the Iranian Resistance in Albania. And just in recent days, the mullahs’ intelligence and terrorist activities against the PMOI in the U.S. were revealed after two of their agents in that country were arrested.

    These efforts and plots were foiled, of course, and the regime suffered their consequences. And once again, it became evident that the murderers of 30,000 political prisoners will stop at nothing to confront their alternative. It was also proven that terrorism is inherent to the clerical regime.

    There is hardly any place left in the world which has remained immune to the regime’s terrorism. Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, the Arab countries, and even Europe and the U.S.
    This week too, the clerical regime’s cyber terrorism was also identified and banned. This is the system which engaged in large scale misinformation campaigns. The regime has been spending exorbitant sums of money from the Iranian people’s wealth to slander the Iranian Resistance and disseminate false information against it. The regime’s criminal network also seeks to disrupt safe communications and prepare the grounds for terrorist operations. This network must be shut down altogether.

    The mullahs were under the illusion that they could exterminate the resistance movement by massacring its political prisoners, by prolonged suppression, and by demonization campaigns but they failed in their efforts.

    Today, the mullahs’ president Hassan Rouhani pleas to the public to ignore the PMOI’s calls urging them to take to the streets. The regime’s experts say, “A third factor has entered the ring, robbing us before our own eyes of our most pivotal asset and the state’s means of power, namely, ‘our popular support…’ And this third factor is at work, deploying its levers, ‘the resistance units,’… to set fire to the state’s fundamental asset which are the young generations of this land.”

    In reality, the main predicament the mullahs have to deal with today is their democratic alternative. They have actually lost hope in finding a solution to the crucial problems they face. So, they just try to postpone the development which would ultimately lead Iran towards freedom.

    But this is an unlikely dream. The Iranian people’s incessant upheavals have left no place for the realization of such a fantasy. The uprisings are rooted in our people’s eager quest for freedom, democracy and equality.

    The participation of the representatives of Iranian communities from various countries in this conference is a vivid example of this reality.

    In this year’s annual gathering, I reiterated the vital importance of a viable democratic alternative as the pivotal force to advance the struggle for the overthrow of the regime.

    I explained that such an alternative requires, among others, an organization and a leadership; it needs to make sacrifice and pay the price; it needs to have clear demarcations with dictatorship, subordination and dependency; it also needs to have a clear platform for the establishment of a republic based on separation of religion and state, gender equality, and abolition of the death penalty.

    It also needs to wage an unrelenting campaign by selfless supporters of this Resistance to defend Iran’s freedom. Such campaigns used to defend Ashraf and Liberty, and today, they support the uprisings and the resistance units inside Iran.

    These campaigns are heartwarming for our compatriots and particularly the protesters who see that they have such informed and determined advocates all around the world. The organization of Iranian communities in different countries who defend freedom and democracy for Iran and enjoy political, diplomatic and social leverage is part of the wherewithal of the democratic alternative and part of the Iranian people’s assets for Iran’s freedom. Hail to all of you.

    Dear friends,
    For three decades, the international community has been silent over the massacre of political prisoners in Iran. As a result, the mullahs have continued with impunity to violate human rights in Iran, launch terrorist operations, and wage catastrophic wars in the Middle East and other countries.

    Now, the time has come to end this silence.

    The time has come for the United Nations Security Council to prepare for the prosecution of the regime’s leaders, and those in charge of this massacre, and officials responsible for four decades of crimes against humanity.

    The regime’s spies and mercenaries must be expelled from Western countries.

    All relations must be terminated with this regime which takes advantage of diplomatic resources to promote state-sponsored terrorism. The regime’s embassies must be shut down.

    The time has come for the world community to stand by the people of Iran in their uprising against the religious fascist regime ruling Iran and recognize their determination to achieve regime change and freedom.

    On the 30th anniversary of the heroes slain in 1988, I urge my fellow compatriots and particularly the courageous youth of Iran to do whatever in their power to expand the Call-for-Justice movement. This movement is part of the uprising for the overthrow of the mullahs’ religious dictatorship.

    The day is not far when the people of Iran will see the cause of their martyrs realized in the spring of freedom.

    Hail to the martyrs fallen for freedom.
    Hail to the people of Iran and God bless you all.

    Iran’s Forgotten Summer of 1988 

    In Memory of Tulips and Angels of Freedom

    30 years ago, more than 30,000 political prisoners were executed in Iran’s prisons upon orders of Khomeini. Most of those directly responsible for the massacre are currently office holders within the regime and have not been held accountable for their crimes against humanity.

    A member of the Iran News Wire team put this tremendous video together through great efforts and after two weeks of gathering details.

    We think of the victim’s families who are securing and trying to save what is left to prove the #1988Massacre.

    One recent event by Iran has been to conduct machinery work in exact locations of burials.

    Two more Iranian regime spies arrested in the United States 

    Two Iranian spys linked to the Iranian regime have been arrested in the US

    Two Iranian spy’s linked to the Iranian regime have been arrested in the US

    August 21, 2018 – On Monday, the U.S. Department of Justice declared that two Iranian men were arrested on charges of spying for the Iranian regime. The suspects, Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar, 38, and Majid Ghorbani, 59, were allegedly involved in conducting surveillance on organizations and individuals that the Iranian regime considers as enemies, most prominent among them the PMOI/MEK.

    According to a DOJ press release, in September 2017, Ghorbani, a resident of California, attended an MEK rally in New York and photographed participants, who had gathered to protest against the Iranian regime.

    Ghorbani later contacted Doostdar and delivered 28 photographs of dissidents to him, for which he received $2,000 in cash. Ghorbani’s photos also contained hand-written annotations identifying the individuals who appeared in them.

    Ghorbani later traveled to Iran for an “in-person briefing” with Iranian officials, according to the DOJ investigations.

    Ghorbani later attended the 2018 Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights in Washington, D.C., also organized by the supporters of the MEK and NCRI, where he photographed speakers and attendees, which included Iranian dissidents from communities across the United States. Doostdar called Ghorbani 10 days later to discuss how to get the information gathered at the event back to Iran, according to the indictment.

    Ghorbani will appear for a detention hearing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on August 21.

    The revelation comes against the backdrop of an uptick in the Iranian regime’s terrorist and espionage activities abroad. In July, Belgian authorities arrested two Iranians who planned to bomb the Free Iran Gathering in Paris, where tens of thousands of Iranians had gathered to support nationwide protests in Iran. The terrorist plot involved an Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, who was also arrested. Assadi served as the chief of intelligence operations in the Iranian regime’s embassy in Vienna, Austria.

    In March, Albanian authorities foiled a terror plot aimed at PMOI/MEK members. Thousands of MEK members were relocated from Iraq to Albania in 2016. Since then, the Iranian regime has escalated its espionage activities in the country through its embassy.

    The Iranian regime blames the PMOI/MEK for coordinating and guiding the nationwide protests that have been ongoing in the cities of Iran since December. Iran’s have vowed to take revenge against the members of the PMOI/MEK.

    The NCRI and MEK have called on all European countries to shut down the Iranian regime’s diplomatic missions in their countries to stop terrorist activities.

    The NCRI also issued Two statements on August 16 regarding the Iranian regime’s spying activities against the PMOI/MEK.

    The role of the Internet and social media in Iran protests. 

    the-threat-of-social-media-to-the-iranian

    By Masoud Dalvand

    In this article, I will write about two important issues related to the developments in Iran. 

    First: The role of the Internet and social media in Iran protests. 

    Second: The suppression of the mullahs’ regime and the impact of US sanctions on the Iranian regime.

    Are these two issues related to each other? Of course they are. Social media is the only opportunity that the Iranian people, especially the protesting youth and women, and all the political and social activists, can make their voices heard. And the start of US initial sanctions against the Iranian regime and its effects on its decaying economy is a very important development. Considering the censorship and suppression of Iran, the social media can be used to measure the effects of the sanctions in Iran. So I’ve looked at these two issues in the following article.

    The Internet and especially social media play a very important role in social activities in Iran. You know that Iran is a country in which a religious dictatorship is ruling on, so there is no open public media. Radio and television networks and the press are entirely under the control of the government and, in particular, the supreme leader of the Khamenei regime. Public and private websites are under intense censorship and control. In Iran, a ministry called the Ershad, whose work is a censorship of all cultural, artistic and press affairs, in addition to the Iranian regime’s police, has a special Internet police that It’s work is to monitor and filter and suppress all individuals and media on the Internet. They have very simple and humanitarian activities, such as defending the rights of women or children, and other social problems. In 2012 about six years ago, a blogger in Tehran, Sattar Beheshti, was arrested and subjected to torture only for publishing several articles on social problems in Iran and the poverty of people and corruption in government institutions.

    Many social and environmental activists in Iran have now been arrested for informing people about the devastating effects of mismanagement on the nature of Iran, the drying up of lakes and rivers, or the reflection of social dilemmas, such as the suppression of women and child labor, and the denial of their rights. They are Prisoners and tortured! The latest example is a human rights lawyer named Nasrin Sotoudeh who was accused of espionage! and five years in jail, and many other examples that I don’t have the time to name all of them.

    At last as the most important examples, many young people, including a 26 years old young, named Reza Otadi, in the city of Karaj, were killed by regime repression agents during protests in August, but the regime’s official media tried to reverse this crime by the name of protesters! If not social media, the reality of this regime’s crime was not easily disclosed.

    In the protests last January, when thousands of protesters were arrested, several of them were killed, but the regime claimed they had committed suicide! Also in here were social media that exposed the facts of these murders and crimes of the mullahs’ regime.

    Therefore, in such a situation that there are no free media in Iran and independent journalists cannot reflect the political and social developments in Iran, the Internet plays a very important role in the Iranian society, especially social media, despite the suppression and filtering of a large role in the developments of Iran. For example, Telegram has a lot of features due to its features and the regime cannot hack it, so that a quarter of the total Telegram users in the world are about 40 million people in Iran.

    It was sent to the world through the Telegram, videos and news about the Iran protests in January 2018. In the past eight months, in spite of the Telegram filtering by the Iranian Ministry of Communications, the people, especially the Iranian youth and Iranian women, use this social media to reflect the news of demonstrations and gatherings and strikes in various Iranian cities, and thus in the space Seduction and total tyranny in Iran are the Internet and social media that transmit the constantly changing social movements in Iran all over the country and out of Iran.

    The second issue is the suppression of the mullahs’ regime and the impact of US sanctions on the Iranian regime.

    The withdrawal of the United States from Iran deal and the implementation of  the first phase of sanctions  against the Iranian regime have an important impact on the developments inside Iran, in the sense that the Iranian regime has spent money gained from Iran deal on terrorism and the expansion of the regional intervention of the Iran Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in Syria, Yemen Iraq, Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries, or use these funds inside Iran to expand the ballistic missile program and threaten the Iran neighbors or US troops and free shipping in the Persian Gulf.

    An important part of the proceeds from the sale of Iranian oil and gas was spent on the construction of nuclear weapons as a guarantee of the survival of this government. Therefore, the withdrawal of the United States from Iran deal and economic sanctions against Iran actually limits the resources of the nuclear and missile activities and terrorist activities of the Iranian regime because in Iran, the government does not play any role in provide the basic needs of the people or the well-being and progress of the Iranian society.

    The wealth of Iran is being stolen by the regime’s authorities, such as Khamenei Vali-e Faqih and other officials also parliamentarians, as well as the corrupt IRGC, or spending on nuclear, missile and terrorist destructive activities.

    Therefore, this American action is not only a pressure on the people of Iran, but on the contrary, the pressure on this government is corrupt, plunderer and terrorist. So it is the weakening of this regime, and helping to revive and uprising the Iranian people against tyranny and religious dictatorship.

    With the censorship and filtering of social media such as Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, etc., the Iranian regime tries to prevent the role of the Internet and social media in Iran’s developments. Also by arresting, torture and killing civil and political activists, creates a climate of intimidation in society, but today’s developments in Iran show that the regime has not succeeded.

    If the regime has not succeeded in preventing of the Iranian people’s will for freedom until now, so they cannot prevent the spread of protests and their organized resistance and uprising by the rebellious hubs of the PMOI/MEK. Future developments will show this fact.

    The inevitable confessions; The role of the PMOI/MEK in organizing uprisings and nationwide protests at the Iran regime’s media 

    The inevitable confessions- The role of the PMOI-MEK in organizing uprisings and nationwide protests at the Iran regime's media

    After more than 7 months of nationwide protests in Iran, which began in January 2018, these uprisings and protests and strikes continue to occur, and each day is more organized and more powerful than the past in various cities of Iran.

    The latest protests in August in a large number of cities, including in the capital of Tehran, with slogans of “Death to dictator” and “Death to Khamenei” representing the will of the Iranian people to overthrow of the religious dictatorship and establish freedom, democracy, justice and human rights based on a Democratic Government in Iran.

    What is significant in the process of these uprisings is the role of the PMOI/MEK in organizing these protests through rebellion hubs. Recently, the MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence) made a video about role of rebellion hubs of MEK, and has spread it in the regime’s media and acknowledged this role.

    The media, experts, and various agents of the mullahs’ regime also admit to this crucial role in their media every day.

    Below, we just read some of these confessions for example, indicating the state of the regime on the verge of overthrowing by the Iranian people and resistance.

    Vatan Today Newspaper -July 3-IRGC member, Hassan Rouzitalab an expert of the regime on the MEK: “The MEK has been on top of the social media scene from the start. They attract political activists in the streets and ordinary people and convince them to be MEK resources.”

    “More than 70% of calls to protest and video coming out of the protests… are related to MEK channels. Massoud Rajavi has issued five statements about the protests and clashes since December which is really unprecedented in recent years.”

    “MEK forces have divvied up the cities among themselves and organized protest veterans in the streets into Telegram groups in a process that has taken several years. For example, in one small town there are over 5,000 members in various groups who have the means to coordinate a place and time for gatherings there. Their behavior and slogans are all related to the MEK… Direct calls for overthrow, it was heard everywhere (in all cities) and was repeated frequently. “

    July 14, Tasnim new agency, IRGC Brigadier General, Jalali, Chief of the passive defense organization: “Year 2018 is a special year. We are in an important turning point in the history of the revolution …. It is noteworthy that all counter-revolution has been designed on the basis of the PMOI. “

    July 21, Fasl-e-Tejarat (Trade season site) Ali Rabie Minister of Labor: Today our enemies, particularly the MEK, are targeting the social issues in the country, something that was very apparent in the issue of the truckers… Various networks were activated to transform this demand as a protest by the MEK in the shortest possible time…

    July 25, Qom news- Mohammad Khan Bloki, Director General of the Shipping Union of the regime: “The majority of the people that guided the truckers’ gatherings to insurrection were from the MEK who had infiltrated this social sector.”

    August 1, Fars News AgencyReza Hosseini, consultant to Soft Wars HQ of the Armed Forces:

    “We have to pay attention to what the MEK did in the 1980s to understand how they have resurfaced again and have advanced to the forefront and leadership stage in some sectors. Sometimes it is said that these guys (MEK) have been killed off and don’t mention them anymore!… As an expert I will tell you that anyone who says the MEK is dead either has a bad motive or is ignorant.”

    August 1, the same source adds: “The MEK are creating waves today. They have entered into various social strata like the truckers and bazaar owners and provide them with direction. Right now they have influence in the universities, particularly in provincial capitals. That is why we sometimes hear discourses in university settings that are the MEK’s narrative.”

    August 2, Tasnim News Agency (Quds Terrorist force’s agency) Mullah Ahmad Salek, a member of Iran’s Majlis (parliament): “Affiliated to pro-Khamenei faction, said of the recent workers’ protests in Esfahan: “The slogans that were chanted in the demonstration were directed by the MEK through foreign news channels.”

    Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI

    Mohammad Mohaddessin: Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI. 

    Mohaddessin said as you know, Assadollah Assadi, a third consular at the Iranian regime’s embassy in Vienna was arrested on July 1 in the Germany based on a European arrest warrant.

    Mohaddessin added: The Iranian Resistance’s information shows that Assadi was in charge of the MOIS station since June 2014, for several years, this outpost has coordinated the activities of all MOIS stations in Europe.
    Mohaddesin further on went to say that after the US invasion of Iraq, Assadi was posted in Iraq as third secretary at the Iranian regime’s embassy in Baghdad in the beginning of 2004. Assadi’s mission was to collect intelligence about the coalition forces in Iraq, their headquarters and main centers, to identify the opponents of the Iranian regime among Iraqi personalities.

    Mohaddessin said: According to investigation conducted by our sources in Iran, Assadi played a key role in terrorist plots, bombings and kidnapping against the MEK, coalition forces, and Iraqis between 2004 and 2008.

    This is one of the most important MOIS apparatuses in the Europe operating under the supervision of Assadi. The new head of the German’s intelligence apparatus is Hossein Mahdian-fard.

    Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of NCRI reiterated details regarding the command structure of the operation, an explanation on the structure and modus operandi of the MOIS is necessary. Assadi monitored & worked against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), whose members were based in Camp Ashraf at the time. Since March 2018, Assadi was working with the terror team and had several meetings with them to prepare them for this operation. He reported his work to Amiri-Moghadam. He is considered one of the most senior security officials of the regime and was involved in negotiations with the US forces in Iraq in 2007 on behalf of the Supreme National Security Council. Assadi led the attempted terrorist operation against the Paris gathering under the command of Amiri Moghdam.

    The decision was made in January 2018 at the Supreme National Security Council Then Khamenei approved the operation MOIS Minister was directed to carry out the operation and Amiri Moghadam was the person directly responsible for the operation.

    The head of the Intelligence Station of the regime’s embassy in Albania is Mostafa Roudaki, an officer of the Foreign Intelligence of the MOIS. Mohammadinia and Roudaki are both under Amiri Moghadam’s command. The terrorist plot in Albania was also commanded by Amiri Moghadam. The regime’s current ambassador to Albania, Gholam Hossein Mohammadinia, was previously the head of the International General Administration of the MOIS Foreign Directorate.

    The Prosecutors’ statement reiterated that Assadi is a member of the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry (MOIS) and personally handed over a bomb to two terrorists in Luxembourg, Mohaddessin said.

    Intelligence apparatus in Germany. This is one of the most important MOIS apparatuses in the Europe operating under the supervision of Assadi. The new head of the German’s intelligence apparatus is Hossein Mahdian-fard.

    Intelligence apparatus in France. Ahmad Zarif previously headed this apparatus. Over the past few months, he was supposed to be replaced and return to Iran. Another MOIS officer in France is Rasoul Ahadi Majdabadi.

    On July 11, 2018 The Office of the Federal Prosecutor of Germany announced that it had launched an investigation into Assadi for activities as a foreign agent – or spy – and conspiring to carry out murder.

    Background of this topic:
    On June 30, Belgian authorities arrested a Belgian-Iranian couple with 500-grams of high-
    explosive TATP and a detonator near Brussels. The couple, who had pretended to be
    supporters of People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the main Iranian opposition group, were heading toward the "Free Iran" gathering in the outskirts of Paris.
    The gathering was held in support of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), with the participation of tens of thousands of private citizens and hundreds of political dignitaries from the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, in  Villepinte Paris on June 30, 2018.

    On July 1, German authorities arrested Assadollah Assadi, on route to Austria where he
    enjoyed diplomatic immunity. The German Federal Prosecutor stated on July 11 that Assadi had given the order for the operation to the couple and personally handed over the bomb to them in Luxembourg.

    Conclusion:

    As you can see, the religious dictatorship in Iran is scared of the Iranian organized and powerful resistance, so has abandoned all political protocols, and with the entry of its so-called diplomats in Europe, it seeks to strike against Iranian resistance(NCRI/MEK) through terrorist operations. Of course, this shows to the whole world the democratic alternative address of this regime, but these scandalous efforts can not save the mullahs from a definite fall.

    I put the full video of the conference at the beginning of the article and I would advise you to see it  which contains very valuable information.

    Next step: Recognizing the NCRI as Iran’s alternative 

    maryam-rajavi-at-the-resistances-grand-gathering-in-paris--june-30-2018_43117915952_o

    Free Iran Gathering, Paris, June 30, 2018

    As discussions about sanctioning the Iranian regime continues and European countries and companies continue to weigh their options, a recently foiled terror plot in the heart of the Green Continent should provide something to think about.

    The Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) rally in Paris was the target of an Iranian regime-blueprinted bomb plot, leading to the shocking arrest of Iranian “diplomat” who personally delivered the bomb to the operating team, according to European security services surveying his moves.

    As the United States is putting aside the failed Iran appeasement policy, Europe is encouraged to follow in such foot-steps. It is high time to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Iranian people as they continue protests across the country.

    The NCRI’s June 30th rally once again reminded the international community of how there is a viable alternative to the mullahs’ regime struggling to realize democratic regime change for nearly 40 years.

    Hundreds of high-profile international figures from across the globe attended the rally, including former prime ministers, foreign ministers, diplomats, ambassadors, members of parliament and an astronomical list of notable dignitaries from the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa were on hand to support the democratic alternative to the mullahs’ terrorist state.

    The NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi delivered the keynote speech at the massive rally.

    The flames of the protests cannot be extinguished, and they will continue to soar without respite, indicating a constantly expanding and deepening uprising,” she said.

    “Everyone senses the explosive state of Iranian society. The mullahs can offer no solution and are neither willing nor able to resolve the problems. The Velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule) lacks all legitimacy.

    Mrs. Rajavi went on to offer an alternative in the form of the parliament-in-exile NCRI:

    We call for the establishment of a society based on freedom, democracy, and equality, which has clear demarcation lines against despotism and dependence as well as gender, ethnic and class discrimination. We have defended and will continue to defend gender equality, the right to freely choose one’s attire, separation of religion and state, autonomy of nationalities, equal political and social rights for all citizens of Iran, abolition of the death penalty, freedom of expression, parties, the media, assembly, unions, associations, councils and syndicates.

    It is time for the international community to face the undeniable facts. The Iranian people are uprising to overthrow the decaying mullahs’ regime. In parallel fashion, the alternative to the mullahs is becoming stronger by the day.

    Democratic regime change through the NCRI and MEK grassroots movement is the only realistic and available solution to the Iranian crisis. The first step in such a direction is recognizing the NCRI and Mrs. Rajavi as the democratic alternative to the mullahs.
