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

    NCRI Reveals Details of Tehran_s Terror Machine in the West

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Iranian Regime to Fall Within Year or Two? Radio interview with @A_Jafarzadeh 

    Radio America Online News Bureau's interview with Alireza Jafarzadeh

    Authorities in four European nations foiled a terrorist plot against an Iranian resistance rally in Paris, and a key figure in the resistance says Iran is right to be worried about regime change, hinting all the pieces are in place for the mullahs to be toppled within the next year or two.

    Click on the link below to hear the interview:

    Iranian Regime to Fall Within Year or Two?

    Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal and other sources reported multiple arrests were made in connection with an attempted terrorist attack against last weekend’s “Free Iran” rally.  An Iranian diplomat based in Austria is heavily implicated in the plot.

    Alireza Jafarzadeh is deputy director of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, or NCRI, which is preparing to lead Iran if regime change can be achieved.  He is grateful to the authorities for stopping an attack that would have left “huge crowds” vulnerable.

    He says it’s also a signal to the world that Iran is not like other nations.

    “It was a warning to the rest of the world that you cannot allow the Iranian regime’s embassies to operate where they are operating,” said Jafarzadeh.

    However, he also says the Iranian government is lashing out against his group out of well-founded fear grounded in swelling discontent inside the country.

    “You can imagine how desperate the Iranian regime is on one hand.  The majority of the 80 million population are very discontented with this regime and they want change.  They’re chanting in the streets of Iran, ‘Death to Khamenei’ and ‘Death to Rouhani,’ calling for an end to the religious theocracy in Iran,” said Jafarzadeh.

    The chants referred to Ayatollah Ali Khameini and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.  Jafarzadeh says the protests that made headlines at the beginning of 2018 are still going on and are even intensifying in some areas.  Shortly, before the resistance rally in Paris, demonstrators even took to the streets of Tehran.

    Jafarzadeh firmly believes a smooth transition to a much better system could happen if the NCRI were to replace the mullahs and Rouhani.

    “(The NCRI) has called for the suppression of church and state (being intertwined as one), ballot boxes being the only criteria for legitimacy.  It’s called for freedom of speech, freedom of political parties, gender equality, religious tolerance, peace in the Middle East, a free-market economy, and a non-nuclear Iran,” said Jafarzadeh.

    He says the resistance is so well-organized that Iran would not face the same destabilizing crises as Egypt and Libya should the current Iranian regime be ousted.

    Jafarzadeh says the resistance group MEK is spearheading the internal unrest, which is made easier my the wretched economic conditions in Iran and the realization that all economic gains are gobbled up by the regime, especially the Iranian Republican Guard Corps.

    But he also calls on the U.S. and other nations to suffocate the regime with sanctions and provide demonstrators with hope.

    “You also want to send a message of encouragement to the population that is coming to the streets.  You want them to feel that they are not alone.  The world is watching them as well as watching the regime,” said Jafarzadeh.

    He says the conditions are ripe for the collapse of the current regime and he suspects it may not take long.

    “The next year or so or even less will be absolutely crucial for the process of regime change in Iran,” said Jafarzadeh.

    Alireza Jafarzadeh Presentation on Iran’s Ballistic Buildup 

    Washington, DC – On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US) hosted a panel of leading subject-matter experts to discuss Iran’s burgeoning missile program and its ties with the nuclear weapons program.

    The new 133-page book by the NCRI-US, Iran’s Ballistic Buildup: The March Toward Nuclear-Capable Missiles, was also presented by Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of the NCRI’s Washington Office.

    The book, which has dozens of charts, pictures, satellite imageries, and maps, provides key details on crucial infrastructure of Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

    Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, former Director of National Counter Proliferation Center and Special Adviser to the Director of National Intelligence;

    Dr. Olli Heinonen, former Deputy Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and head of its Department of Safeguards;

    Ambassador Robert Joseph, former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.;

    and Matthew Kroenig, Associate Professor, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, Deputy Director for Strategy, Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security at The Atlantic Council, were the other panelists.

    Rebeccah Heinrichs, Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute moderated the event, after Ali Safavi of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the NCRI welcomed the panelist.

    Alireza Jafarzadeh, who is also the author of The Iran Threat, explained the strategy framework designed to ensure the survival of Iran’s ruling regime and its core elements. He said, “To remain in power, the regime in Tehran functions on two foundations. One is internal suppression and the other is crisis making and export of terror abroad.

    The second pillar has three components itself which complement each other and are all part and parcel of the larger strategy for survival. One would not work without the other. First component is sponsorship of terrorism.

    The second element is Iran’s nuclear weapons program. And the third element is the ballistic missile program. For Tehran, these are critical issues for its survival; that’s why it has never abandoned any of them, and it never will.” Exposing the details of the inner working of the regime’s Aerospace Industries Organization, the Hemmat Missile Industrial Group, and Aerospace Force of the IRGC, Mr. Jafarzadeh stated, “there are 15 sites associated with the Aerospace Industries Organization and 27 sites associated with Aerospace Force of the IRGC.” He provided the names, specific functions and their internal codenames, command and control structure, and location of these sites. Jafarzadeh concluded his presentation by saying, “The Iranian regime right now is engulfed in large scale protests and uprising that started last December and is still continuing.

    The economy is in shambles, currency is plunging further, and there’s extensive institutionalized corruption. So, the long-term and lasting solution to the threat posed by Tehran is internal change. The people inside Iran are calling for change by the people of Iran. That’s when we’re going to see those three threats resolved.”

    Iran Desperate for US to Keep Nuclear Deal 

    Iran Nuclear Deal

     Radio America Online News Bureau April 24th, 2018 – President Trump’s instinct is to scrap the Iran nuclear deal while French President Emmanuel Macron is willing to amend it but not rescind it without another plan in place, but a leading figure in the Iranian resistance says the deal doesn’t stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons but does help the radical mullahs stay in power.

    President Trump has until May 12 to declare whether Iran is in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA and whether the U.S. will remain a party to the seven-nation agreement.

     

    Alireza JafarzadehA_Jafarzadeh

    deputy director of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, says despite Tehran’s bluster about exiting the deal if the U.S. does, the Iranian leaders badly need the agreement to continue.

    “There’s no way the Iranian regime wants to lose this agreement.  They want to do everything possible to keep it because the regime knows that absent this agreement, there’s really not too many other options left for them,” said Jafarzadeh, who says threats to the contrary are nothing but “hot air.”.

    He says that’s because internal unrest is reaching a boiling point.

    “The regime is facing tremendous problems domestically, particularly on the economic side of it.  We’ve seen the uprising going on since December that was built around the economic corruption in Iran and the high rise in prices for very basic food.  Inflation is so high.  Inflation is skyrocketing,” said Jafarzadeh.

    Iran is clamping down on media outlets and social media, so reports of the ongoing protests are hard to find, but Jafarzadeh says they are still going strong and are appearing in many different parts of the country.

    “The protests are continuing ever since they started.  It expanded to 142 cities starting back in December,” said Jafarzadeh, listing off a number of cities seeing major protests in the past several days.

    “Every week there is a new hot spot in Iran.  People are chanting with the same intensity against the regime, making significant demands, none of which the regime can really meet,” said Jafarzadeh.

    He says some chants even explicitly scold the government for blaming its problems on America and stating that only the Iranian regime is to blame.

    Keeping the deal in place is critical for the Iranian leaders because the money that flowed back into Iran from the agreement has been trumpeted as the solution to Iran’s economic problems.

    However, even that good fortune could soon backfire on Iran’s leadership.

    “Once the people realize that all the money that was given to the Iranian regime ended up in the pocket of the mullahs, the ayatollahs, and the Revolutionary Guard.  It was basically the military structure and the clerical structure that benefited from that.

    “Imagine if there’s more pressure built against the regime what kind of political problems it’s going to create for the Iranian regime,” said Jafarzadeh.

    The more pertinent issue for Trump, Macron, and other world leaders is whether the JCPOA is actually preventing the advancement of Iran’s nuclear program.  Jafarzadeh is convinced it doesn’t.

    “The agreement has kept almost all of the nuclear infrastructure of the Iranian regime intact.  It has allowed the research and development of more advanced centrifuges that could actually enrich uranium much faster and more efficiently further down the road.

    “It hasn’t put any meaningful restrictions on the missile program of the Iranian regime, which is really marching forward with more missile tests on nuclear-capable ballistic missiles.  And it has this ridiculous sunset clause.  In a few years, all those restrictions on the nuclear program are removed,” said Jafarzadeh.

    And he says the hurdles to inspections make enforcement of the existing deal virtually impossible.

    “Most importantly, there’s no serious access and inspection of a number of nuclear sites where the core of the nuclear program of Iran is.  It’s not just the enrichment but the weaponization part of the program.  We exposed at least six nuclear sites we believe need to be inspected,” said Jafarzadeh.

    He says the bottom line is the JCPOA doesn’t stop Iran from getting nukes.

    “As of now, the current restrictions are not sufficient enough to prevent the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons further down the road,” said Jafarzadeh.

    Barnes & Noble:

    Iran’s Ballistic Buildup: The March Toward Nuclear-Capable Missiles Paperback – May 8, 2018

    This unique manuscript surveys the regime’s missile capabilities, including the underlying organization, structure, production, and development infrastructure, as well as launch facilities and the command centers operating inside Iran.

    This report has been complied based on intelligence and information obtained by Iran’s main organized opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), from inside the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and other regime military institutions in charge of missile development.

    The book exposes the nexus between the regime’s missile activities and its nuclear weapons program, including Tehran’s ties with Pyongyang.

    Contrary to the spirit of the July 2015 nuclear deal, the clerical regime increased the number of tests of ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear load. This, coupled with illicit exports to other rogue actors in the Middle East, is prompted by the regime’s domestic weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

    Video clip about continued uprising in Iran in various cities with English subtitle about the slogans 

    The Iranian people’s uprising that erupted on December 28, 2017 and rapidly spread to over 140 cities has continued ever since. Protesters chant “Death to Khamenei,” “Death to Rouhani” and “Reformers, hardliners, the game is now over.” The people want change as they chanted “Independence, Freedom, Iranian republic” as opposed to the past monarchy and current theocracy.
