    Iran Regime Will Soon Fall 

    The Iranian Regime is on thin ice and they know it, as demonstrated by the protests that were seen all over Iran on Tuesday night, during the national Fire Festival, and the Regime’s brutal response to it.

    These large anti-regime rallies suggest that the Iranian people will not be giving in, no matter what the Regime does, until they’ve realised their ultimate objective of regime change. These protests have brought together the Iranian people – no matter their gender, class, job, or religion – to rise up against the mullahs and they will remain united in this effort.

    From women demanding equal rights, to farmers opposing the wilful destruction of their crops, to religious minorities demanding their right to practice their faith, all of these valid and worthy protests are snowballing together, which is why the Regime has been sending in the troops.

    A spokesperson for the Iranian police reported that they were using “5,000 officers, 10 million accomplices, 1,100 traffic police vehicles, 27,000 special police patrols, installing 1,330 police trailers, 3,770 patrol vehicles, 2010 motorcycle patrols, 2,900 on-foot patrols, 1,700 temporary inspection centers, 104 permanent inspection centers and 30 helicopters” to suppress the protests.

    Scared of the people

    That would be a massive overreaction if the Regime wasn’t scared to death of being overthrown by its people, and yes, the so-called moderates in the Regime almost certainly approve of these measures.

    In February, Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi foretold that the protest movement would continue until they get regime change and noted that the Regime knows that it is incapable of containing it.

    She said: “The wall of fear has been cracked, and nothing including arrests, killings and torture can prevent the advancement of the protests to overthrow the regime.”

    The Iranian Resistance, including the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), are supporting and encouraging the protesters and it is working. Tuesday’s protests were largely the result of a call from the MEK to attend in spite of the Regime’s threats.

    The West’s role

    The West has recently begun to acknowledge the threat posed by Iran’s ballistic missiles, but how long will it take them to realize that the Iranian people want regime change?

    Human rights activist Heshmat Alavi wrote on Al Arabiya: “It is high time for the West to realize appeasement vis-à-vis Tehran is not welcome as protesters express their abhorrence of this clerical rule.”

    He advises that the European Union recognize the Iranian people’s demand for regime change and start to adopt measures against the Regime, in particular for human rights abuses of the protesters.

    He also states the EU should end trade deals with Iran, as the money largely goes to prop up the Regime and its violent militarized police force, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

    He advises that another good starting point would be to have the United Nations investigate the mysterious fates of protesters in custody.

    Alavi wrote: “Europe should jump on board with its Middle East allies and the United States in adopting a firm Iran policy. Silence in regards to Tehran’s unrestrained quelling of protesters simply seeking their God-given right of freedom is unacceptable.”

    Iran Regime’s Fear of Nationwide Protests on the Verge of National Fire Festival 

    Iran Uprising – No. 107

    The clerical regime, fearful of the explosion of anger of the people in the National Fire Festival (Last Wednesday of each year in Persian calendar) and following the call of the social headquarter of the People’s Mojahedin inside Iran, under the title of “The National Fire Festival celebration; another uprising against the dictatorship of the mullahs,” tries in vain to reduce the scope and dimensions of popular uprisings on this day with all kinds of threats and arrests.

    IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Rahimi, commander of Greater Tehran’s Police, warned on March 9 that those who would cause insecurity on Chahrshanbeh Souri (fire festival) would be arrested. He came back to the scene on March 7 and said: “Behaviors that are disruptive to the order … is the red line of the police and we deal with them severely. The forces will be on alert from 2:00 pm of Tuesday, and those who throw firecrackers from the vehicles and cause disturbance will be arrested themselves and their cars will be seized. We have discovered 100 million pieces of firecracker materials.”

    IRGC Brigadier General BakhshAlii Kamrani, Hamedan Provincial Police Chief, on March 8, threatened that “the police are decisive in dealing with the perpetrators and disrupters of the security and tranquility of the people,” saying that this year, the seizure of firecracker materials in the province rose 135 percent compared to last year.

    On March 2, Colonel Taghi Afrand, a security police deputy of Tehran declared the sale and possession of explosive materials illegal and said that the warehouses that are engaged in the production and handling of the firecracker materials would be “sealed and their licenses will be permanently revoked.” Revolutionary Guard Mohsen Hamedani, Security Deputy of Tehran’s Governorate on February 27, said: “The law enforcement force is tasked to deal forcefully with fire festival, which is why a certain mechanism has been foreseen and these forces are being deployed all over the city.”

    Officials of the mullahs regime on March 9 expressed their fear from fire festival in Friday prayers in various cities. “It’s not a joy to upset God, we must be aware that one can not be happy with dancing and sins,” said Tabatabai Nejad at the Friday show in Isfahan. Ghiaseddin Taha Mohammadi, called on the youth in Friday prayer of Hamedan to “refrain from throwing firecrackers and create explosion sound due to that” and Abdul Rahman Khodaei, the representative of Khamenei in Sanandaj, said: “The use of firecracker materials and the creation of noise is not in the Iranian people’s culture, especially in Kurdistan, and creating such an unpleasant move is far from the dignity of Iranian families.”

    Despite these repressive measures and the ridiculous statements of the officials of the regime, there is no doubt that the brave young people and the free women will give an unforgettable lesson to this corrupt regime this year. The unwavering will of the people of Iran will permanently annihilate the regime of Velayat-e faqih from Iran’s history, which has no harmony with the people, the civilization and culture of Iran.

    U.N. Slammed by Haley Over Planned Address by Iran Regime’s Minister Involved in Massacre of Political Prisoners 

    AFP: A protest is planned in front of the UN headquarters in Geneva next Tuesday, when Avaie is due to speak

    US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the world body’s Human Rights Council on Sunday, saying it should be “ashamed” for inviting an Iranian minister, sanctioned for known human rights violations, to speak at the council’s annual meeting in Geneva this week. Haley said that the council was “discredited” by Iranian Justice Minister Alireza Avaie’s slated address to the body’s membership, adding that it only reinforces the United States’ criticisms of the UN and threats to defund the world body.

    “The Human Rights Council should be ashamed to allow Mr. Avaei to address its membership,” Haley said in a statement.“Yet again the Council discredits itself by allowing serial human rights abusers to hijack its work and make a mockery of its mandate to promote universal human rights. This does nothing but reinforce the United States’ call for much needed reforms at the Council for it to be viewed as a good investment of our time and money,” she said.

    Avaei’s appearance alongside some 100 other government ministers and dignitaries from around the world has drawn widespread criticism from both Iranian and international activists. Members of the Iranian opposition now living in exile say that Avaei also played a key role in the massacre of political prisoners in 1988, a year in which Amnesty International says some 5,000 prisoners were executed over the course of mere months. Iranian opposition groups put the figure closer to 30,000. “Allowing Avaie to address the Human Rights Council is disgraceful and would make a mockery of the United Nations and its human rights mechanisms,” Shahin Gobadi, a member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, told AFP earlier this week. “This must not happen.”Avaei was sanctioned by the European Union in 2011 on the grounds that as Tehran’s top prosecutor he was “responsible for human rights violations, arbitrary arrests, denials of prisoners’ rights, and an increase in executions.” A protest is planned in front of the UN headquarters in Geneva next Tuesday, when Avaie is due to speak.

    The MEK and Its Popularity in Iran 

    The MEK and Its Popularity in Iran

    Iran Focus

    One persistent myth about the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is that it is unpopular amongst the Iranian people, but nothing could be further from the truth.

    The MEK is the oldest, biggest, and most popular resistance movement in Iran, but it should also go without saying that it far outstrips the Regime’s popularity among the Iranian people.

    It is impossible to get precise numbers on support for the MEK within Iran, as Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini declared them to be enemies of the Regime in 1980 and criminalised the pro-democracy movement soon after, but their signs can be seen during every election and at every protest.

    One of the best ways to measure support for the MEK may actually be through their television channel Face of Freedom (Simaye Azadi in Persian), which bypasses strict Regime censorship to bring unbiased news to Iran as well as programs on Iranian history, literature, culture, art, music, and comedy.

    The channel has about 10 million viewers receives tens of thousands of hits to its website every day. In 2017, it held a telethon to keep the channel running and generated $5.5 million.

    If the MEK is so unpopular, why does the Regime focus on them so much?

    If the MEK were truly an unpopular, fringe group, then why would the Regime spend so much time and effort trying to eliminate the MEK?

    So far, the Iranian Regime has murdered at least 120,000 people, majority of them MEK members and supporters. In 1988, the Khomeini release a fatwa calling for the extermination of the MEK, which resulted in the deaths of 30,000 political prisoners again majority of them MEK members and supporters in just one summer, known as the 1988 Massacre.

    This is not a small number. For comparison, the Scottish National party has about 120,000 members and they’re the third biggest party in the UK. Also the executions figure doesn’t take into account the number of people who have been imprisoned, tortured, or otherwise punished for being a member of the MEK or those who have not been found by the Regime.

    If a political group is deeply unpopular, the ruling party does not need to demonise them (both at home and abroad), let alone slaughter them. It certainly doesn’t need to fight for them to be designated as a terrorist organisation.

    The Regime’s actions undermine their claims with regard to the MEK.

    Simply, the Regime knows that the MEK is far more popular than them and poses a serious threat to their rule, which is why they discredit them at every turn.

    Why does the MEK enjoy such widespread support in Iran?

    There are many reasons why individuals in Iran would support the MEK from its longstanding commitment to democracy to its tolerant interpretation of Islam to its embracement of modern society. The MEK supports a democratic, non-nuclear Iran with a commitment to human rights and gender equality; something that the overwhelming majority of Iranians want.

    The Iranian people are much more democratic, tolerant, and loving than the Regime that rules them and want nothing more than to see a Free Iran. Many Iranians support the MEK and despise the Regime.

    Biggest Threat to Iran’s Regime Is a Tolerant Islam 

    Rally for a Free Iran

    This is a comprehensive and great article about Iran regime’s challenges inside and outside of Iran. Especially if you want to get to know the biggest threat to this regime, that is, tolerant Islam, which is symbolized in its democratic opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi, this article will help you to understand Get that.

    The Iranian Regime has been facing a range of ever-increasing political and military challenges in the Middle East, particularly the US’s tougher policy on confronting Iranian belligerence and expansionism, but the biggest threat to the Regime is a challenge to its extremist interpretation of Islam, according to a leading Iranian-American political scientist.
    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh, president of the International American Council, wrote an op-ed for the Huffington Post in which he laid out how ideological challenges to the Iranian Regime were destroying its chokehold on power.
    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh wrote: “Since the 1979 founding of the Islamic Republic, the Iranian regime’s main weapon has been the demented interpretation of Islam, based on zero-tolerance for other religions, lack of respect of freedoms and the debasing of women. This ideology manifests itself as misogynistic laws and practices, a record number of executions, and brutal torture of its own citizens. Tehran has used this extremist ideology to suppress freedom and democracy at home and wreak havoc in neighboring countries. This has rendered sectarian violence triggered by Iran’s Shiite surrogates in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, among others, to rampant levels. In a nutshell, the Iranian regime’s extremist ideology has been its shield and armour against foreign and domestic threats. That armour, however, is increasingly showing wear and tear.”
    Thankfully, the fanatical interpretation of Islam- which disrespects women and people of other religions- is on its way out. Just last week Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reaffirmed his promise to reverse Islamic extremism, largely orchestrated by the Regime that has led to groups like ISIS and Hezbollah.
    The Regime, of course, even as written evidence of their collaboration with Al Qaeda emerges from the CIA is trying to shift the blame to Saudi Arabia because they disapprove of Prince Salman’s efforts to push back against Iranian sectarianism.
    The Regime also disapproves of Prince Salman’s accurate description of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei as “the new Hitler of the Middle East”.


    Another challenge to the Iranian Regime’s fanatical version of Islam comes from the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a coalition of Iranian opposition groups including the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh wrote: “The NCRI [is] in every way an antithesis to the ruling clerics of Iran, and vies for the establishment of a secular and democratic state providing equal opportunities to all its citizens, regardless of faith, gender and ethnicity.”
    The NCRI’s popularity- both inside and outside Iran- has been steadily growing. Prior to the rigged Iranian elections in May, Iranians publically posted pictures of NCRI president Maryam Rajavi and accompanied that with calls for the overthrow of the Regime, while many international politicians have voiced their support for the Resistance.

    Thousands of Iranian in Rally for Free Iran -20 Sept 2017

    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh cited a Washington Examiner piece which read: “In the past year, Sen. John McCain, a separate U.S. Senate delegation, and several other prominent U.S. politicians have met with MEK’s leadership in Tirana, Albania, where the group’s members relocated to from Iraq in 2016, and voiced their support for MEK’s goals to establish freedom and democracy in Iran.”
    This scared the Regime, who know that their rule is all but over.
    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh explained: “Iran’s rulers are attempting to stem the tide of support directed toward the NCRI and MEK by spreading false news and propaganda in Iran and western countries.
    An article recently published by Massoud Khodabandeh, a British-Iranian with reportedly known ties to the Islamic Republic, seeks to dissuade people outside Iran from supporting the MEK by portraying an image based on non-existent and insubstantial facts.”
    Yet again, Iran, attempts to shift blame onto another party for problems that they cause but in the case of the Resistance, the Regime goes much further.
    Dr. Majid Rafizadeh explained: “The Iranian regime has sought in vain to eradicate the opposition through violence according to Amnesty International and human rights groups. Since 1981, the regime executed more than 100,000 MEK members and supporters, including the 1988 mass murder of 30,000 political prisoners. It has nonetheless been unsuccessful in uprooting them.”
    Thankfully, the Regime’s cruel rule is almost over and there will be no pardons for the guilty. They will be held to account for their crimes.

    Panel Calls for Accountability Against Iran Rulers for Massacre of Political Prisoners 


    Washington, DC- 1 December 2017- A panel of experts was organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US) to discuss the situation of human rights in Iran, and U.S. policy regarding it. The panel coincided with the release of a new well-documented book, Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule: The 1988 Massacre of 30,000 Political Prisoners and the Continuing Atrocities. The event was held at the National Press Club a week ahead of Human Rights Day and highlighted the need to designate certain Iranian officials as major human rights violators subject to sanctions. The panel began with an introduction from former U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain and panel moderator, Adam Ereli. Soona Samsami, the U.S. Representative of NCRI delivered her remarks on the significance of the book, “because it is not only intended to commemorate the past, but to draw attention to the present as well as the future. [It explains that] every day, new blood from a new Iranian citizen is spilled at the hands of an inhumane, corrupt, regime… these hands, however, are the same hands today as they were thirty years ago.” Samsami continued to say “the way forward certainly involves holding the regime accountable for not only its past crimes against humanity, but its current violations as well.” Linda Chavez, former Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison, who was also former U.S. Expert elected by the United Nations Human Rights Commission to the U.N. Sub-commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities drew on her experience of dealing with the Iranian opposition since decades ago when the group was providing information to the United Nations in Geneva and emphasized that there is bi-partisan consensus on the need to condemn the regime and hold the rulers accountable for their crimes. Chavez discussed the current Iranian regime’s treatment of women. “We have a society in Iran in which it would be an understatement to say half of the population are regarded as second-class citizens. Women in Iran are not even given the rights of second-class citizens… One of the reasons I think the regime hates and fears the MEK is because women are allowed to be in leadership positions.” The Honorable J. Kenneth “Ken” Blackwell, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, talked on how the Iran regime can and should be confronted. “I think, if in fact, we keep the pressure as part of the comprehensive pressure that we put on the regime, we can help bring closure to the families of the victims of the summer of blood in 1988… It is incumbent upon us as individuals, us as nation states, and as communities of nation states, to put the pressure on the regime to give access to the community so that we may shine light – individual light, collective light – on the evils that were done by the regime.” With conviction in his voice, Blackwell continued. “We want to demand that our delegation at the UN continues to be leading voice… not only on the threats to national terrorism that is perpetuated by and advanced by the regime… but we in fact want to bring justice to those human rights fighters who in fact have the experience of a brutal history… where people who were just passing out leaflets in 1988 were part of the human victims of a regime that is dark, that is anti-human rights, and that is a threat to the basic fabric of humanity across the globe.” Closing the panel was former Ambassador to Morocco, Marc Ginsberg. His words called on his own political party, the Democrats, to act on their values of freedom and equality. “If anything, we Democrats should be champions of holding Iran accountable!” Touching on the current focus of the party, he demanded that to “expand the debate about Iran. It is not merely the issue of the Iran nuclear agreement, it is its violation as a state sponsor of terror.”
