    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”.

    Resistance

    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.

    Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule 

    IranMassMurderers-cover

    The 1988 Massacre of 30,000 Political Prisoners and the Continuing Atrocities

    Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule offers a glimpse into both the past and present atrocities committed by the Iranian regime. The book, published by the National Council of Resistance of Iran U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US), examines Iran’s bloody history of political executions perpetrated by members of the government. Most importantly, it connects the horrors of the past with those of the present day, and sheds light on the lack of awareness and justice regarding these wrongdoings.

    The most infamous of these executions occurred in 1988, when Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa ordering the killing of all people associated with the main Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK). This order included political prisoners that had already served their sentences, and the victims were given “trials” that lasted only minutes before their fate was decided for them. In total, around 30,000 political prisoners, mostly MEK members and associates, were executed over a period of five months as a result of the regime’s campaign to eliminate its political opponents. Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule describes in detail these horrific events, and includes a firsthand account from a victim who managed to escape his fate. The book also provides a unique unveiling of the evidence against members of the regime that participated in the killings of 1988, and identifies guilty officials that remain in power today. In fact, this latest publication from NCRI-US catalogues statements from Iranian regime officials in which they acknowledge their participation in or fully endorse the “summer of blood.” In doing so, it effectively reveals to the world that these officials have admitted their roles as mass murderers, and yet have not been held accountable.

    Along with calling for justice in Iran for the crimes of the past, Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule details the multitude of political executions in Iran today. Iran has the world’s highest rate of executions per capita, and also remains the only country on the planet that executes juveniles. The book chronicles some of the recent political killings in Iran, and also includes the resulting outcry from important entities, such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Amnesty International. It sheds light on the current state of human rights in Iran, presents the United Nations’ statements and findings regarding these issues, and provides informed advice on how Iran and the rest of the world should proceed on the long road to justice. Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule produces a unique perspective of the Iranian regime and the officials that constitute it, offering never-before-seen evidence regarding the government’s true human rights record and concrete policy suggestions regarding the way forward.

    Iran: Where Mass Murderers Rule, published by the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office, is currently available for purchase on Amazon.

    Iran: Where the regime opposes women’s rights 

    Women pray for Iranian soldiers killed during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war at the Imamzadeh Saleh shrine in Tehran on August 2, 2017. (Reuters)

    Every year, the day November 25 comes as a grim reminder that we have a long way to go for achieving gender parity. There are still many countries in the world where women cannot fully exercise the right to shape their own destiny. Violence against women is another detestable vestige of the mostly patriarchal societies inherited by our generation.

    It may seem that we have come a long way since the Dark Ages, but there are still some countries in the world that have made little progress in according equal rights to women and men. There is even a country where misogyny is the order of the day and where women have no legal rights.

    It may come as a shock to many, but Iran continues to run in this way. The Iranian regime may keep up pretences in public on issues related to women’s rights, but in practice women remain second class citizens in that country.

    Subhuman treatment of women

    It is not difficult to prove that Iranian theocrats are opposed to the idea of gender equality. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has been quoted as saying: “Gender equality is ‘Zionist plot’ aimed at corrupting the role of women in society.” In Iran’s version of religious law, women are considered property.

    Their inheritance is half of what men receive and women are not allowed to leave the country without their husband’s consent. They are also forced to observe a very strict dress code. There are several security measures in place in Iran to impose these laws. The most repressive one is the infamous ‘morality police’ that roams around cities arresting young women for not observing the dress code.

    There are gruesome videos on YouTube and other social media showing how women are treated in Iran for what they wear. In a recent incident, a 14-year-old girl was beaten and detained for wearing ripped jeans in Iran (one of many such cases of police brutality against women). After her arrest by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Coups (IRGC) unit, she said: “I still carry the bruises sustained from their beatings on my face … my ribs still hurt.”

    ANALYSIS: Iranian regime and its appalling violation of children’s rights

    Women in Iran are also banned from entering sports stadiums. In a recently reported case by Human Rights Watch (HRW), a woman named Mina tried to get under the radar of security forces to watch a volleyball match in 2016. Despite her attempt to watch the match from the roof top of a café near a volleyball stadium, she and a few other women were caught by IRGC and were evicted from their vantage point.

    Irrespective of their position in society, women in Iran have no right to travel without the consent of their husband or father. Hassan Rouhani and his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had once made bogus promises of giving women more rights in order to garner their votes. In May this year, Rouhani had spread the word that he might appoint a women minster in his cabinet. But soon after his sham election he did not include any woman in his cabinet.

    Iranian women defy repression

    However, Iranian women seize every opportunity to show their resistance against their ill-treatment by the regime. After Khamenei’s ridiculous fatwa banning women from riding a bike in public last year, women in Iran came out in droves riding their bikes in defiance. According to the state-run media, Khamenei issued a decree on 10 September 2016 wherein he said: “Riding a bicycle often attracts the attention of men and exposes the society to corruption, and as contravenes women’s chastity so it must be abandoned”.

    Since the first day of the installation of the regime, Iranian women have resisted their attempts at oppression. Back in the day, Iran like other countries of the Middle East could hardly imagine any role for women other than staying at home and taking care of children.

    One woman took the lead in this struggle for freedom which was no longer about just freeing Iranian women but the entire Iranian society, which was taken hostage by the regime. Maryam Rajavi, president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an educated woman has done the impossible and instilled thousands of Iranian men and women with the idea that all citizens in the country can struggle for a common cause: Freedom.

    ALSO READ: Iran Guards ‘recruiting Afghan children as young as 14’ to fight in Syria

    She has proven through her leadership role that the same deprived and underprivileged woman is no different than her male counterpart in struggling for a free and democratic society. She has built a blueprint for building a better Iran with her 10-point plan, wherein women are deemed fully equal to men in all spheres of social activity.

    There would be no limits for women in this new Iran. Filling the highest political positions will no longer be just a dream for women. The Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) — the biggest Iranian opposition group and a member of the NCRI — has followed her teachings for years and is now led by her.

    Violence against women in Iran is institutionalized simply because half of the society is treated as crippled and in need of guidance from men; be it the male head of the family or males in the state itself. Thus, the status of women will never change in Iran as long as the present regime is in power.

    Iran: Earthquake survivals outraged over regime’s lack of aid efforts 

    Earthquake of western Iran

    A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck western Iran on Sunday November 12. The Iranian regime put the figure of casualties at 530. Tehran and IRGC announced quickly that the rescue mission was over in a couple of days. The reports coming out of the region and public reaction showed a totally different picture. In reality the scope of casualties was much bigger and the population was outraged of lack of minimum assistance, plunder by the regime officials, and even stealing the help provided from other parts of the country. People called the regime’s officials and the state media as liars and some called for the regime’s overthrow.

    Reports by Simaye Azadi (opposition satellite TV) reporters that were sneaked out, showed people sending help directly, avoiding the regime. Many people said they are sending help upon the call by Mrs. Rajavi to directly assist the victims.

    Welcoming Positions of Arab Community Against Clerical Regime and Calling for Effective and Feasible Action 

    Iranian Resistance welcomes the decisions adopted by the extraordinary summit of the foreign ministers of Arab States, such as condemnation of the mullahs’ regime for “its continued involvement in Arab affairs which feeds sectarian and religious strife” and “support for terrorism and terrorist groups in Arab States with advanced weapons and ballistic missiles,” and the referral to the United Nations Security Council for “violations of Resolution No. 2231 on the development of the ballistic missile program” and “violations of the Resolution (2216)” with regard to Yemen….and considers it as a necessary step to confront the policy of exporting fundamentalism and terrorism of the mullahs regime ruling Iran that must be completed with a series of practical measures.

    The clerical regime is in extreme need of export of terrorism, war and extremism for its survival. Since three decades ago, the Iranian Resistance has emphasized the need to confront this regime as the greatest enemy of peace and tranquility in the region and the world. Failure to pay attention to this threat and negotiation and appeasement has allowed the regime to expand the unprecedented wave of terrorism and war and massacres to regional countries from Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine to Yemen, Bahrain and Afghanistan, and even beyond the region.

    Some of the necessary measures to complete the positions of Arab foreign ministers, as well as the decisions of the Riyadh Conference (April 2017) and the Islamic Cooperation Organization Summit in Istanbul (April 2016) are as follows:

    1. The expulsion of the mullahs regime from the Islamic Cooperation Conference and all regional institutions and organs, and awarding Iran’s seats to the National Council of Resistance of Iran as the only democratic alternative to the religious and terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran;

    2. Complete termination of economic and diplomatic relations of Arab and Islamic countries with the Iranian regime;

    3. Adoption of necessary regional and international measures to expel the Revolutionary Guards and its mercenary militias from the countries of the region, in particular, Iraq, Syria and Yemen, and to prevent the Iranian regime and its militias from sending troops and weapons to the above countries in pursuance of Security Council Resolutions 2216 and 2231;

    4. Providing comprehensive political, financial, military and weapons support to the Syrian democratic opposition, and banning any Iranian regime’s interference in the negotiations on Syrian crisis;

    5. Putting the IRGC in the terrorist lists, and complete prohibiting of dealings with its affiliated companies;

    6. Condemning the mullahs regime’s crimes against the Iranian people, in particular the execution of 120,000 political prisoners, including the massacre of 30,000 prisoners in 1988, and supporting the people’s will to overthrow this anti-human regime;

    Terrorism and extremism in its present form has emerged in this region since the reign of mullahs, and these destructive and deadly policies will end only with the overthrow of this regime. This is a matter within reach because of the hatred and disgust of the whole people against this regime and the presence of a national opposition and a powerful and organized alternative.

      That’s a well-thoughtout plan but I do have a few questions regarding some of the points. At the top of the list is the part about the terror list. It’s a bold move, but I fear that the people might get caught in that net. You’ve seen the clumsy, bigoted way that our government tried to ban certain countries under that guise. I can understand having sanctions on the government but it would be good to not have the people suffer more than they already have in doing so. I don’t know if there is a way to accomplish that. The other was the abandonment of diplomacy. I think that still may play a part is giving support to the resistance. What about the UN bringing charges against the regime? Can that be done? Also, does the Arab states you mention include Saudi Arabia? I only ask because they have gotten ill-concieved assistance from the US and does appear to be in favor of terroristic actions, as does the US. The US interference in the government of other countries has never worked out favorably for its people largely due to our government’s motivations of greed and not the bettering of humanity. I don’t want our government to make things worse than they already have and that is very likely. I would like to ask any country considering such bold moves to be strategic in their actions and make it a priority that whatever they do, that they design their actions to support the people of Iran and minimize or eliminate the blowback on them.

      Thank you for the comments you have written to me. While agreeing with the concerns you raised, I must first recall a historical record of these actions. It is more than 38 that the United States, in spite of some apparent and small measures, has essentially prevented the fall of the regime’s dictatorship from ruling Iran overwhelmingly by its appeasement policy. Do you know that the United States, with its foolish attack on Iraq, has been giving it in a golden tray to the Iranian clerics and Quds terrorists? In contrast, more than 15 years , the legitimate and fair resistance of the Iranian people was placed on terrorist lists. Of course, the politics of the countries of the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries have also been affected by this policy by the United States and Europe, with the dictatorship of this regime. Therefore, as a result of this policy, the appeasement of the United States and Europe and the Arab countries, the party that has benefited most, is only the criminals and terrorists ruling Iran. The party that has seen the most damage is only Iranian people and their free and legitimate resistance. If the Arab countries are awake today, it is because of the fears that they have created in their hearts as a result of the advance of the Iranian regime and the terrorist forces. Iraq and many parts of Syria and Yemen are in control of Quds terrorist forces and their mercenaries. They want to occupy Saudi Arabia. Lebanon is under the control of the terrorist group Hezbollah, the mercenary of Iran. They want to occupy Saudi Arabia. Lebanon is under the control of the terrorist group Hezbollah, the mercenary of Iran. Well, you see that the Arab community and the US government have not yet done anything against this regime. Their threat is not at all a war with this regime. If the United States and Europe and Arab countries listened to the Iranian resistance 30 years ago, they would not have supported the regime. Now, absolutely, the Iranian resistance is not calling for sanctions that harm the Iranian people. Iran’s economy and oil are under the control of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). They use oil money to build a ballistic missile and a nuclear program to threaten the world, such as North Korea. They also export their fundamentalist religious ideology and terrorism to scare of the region countries and U.S. and EU , and the United States. It must cut off the vital arteries of the terrorists and criminals ruling Iran. I do not think these countries are so serious and determined. The only way to uprising the Iranian people and overthrow this regime is through the Iranian resistance and the establishment of freedom, human rights and sustainable democracy in Iran.
      Hope I could explain and answer to questions, thanks again dear Danelle. Good luck.

      No, what you’ve said supports my concerns even more. I agree that all countries, especially the US, needs to stop supporting criminals and needs to help, not hurt the Iranian people as well as the people of other countries that they have wronged; Honduras, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, India. I’m sure there’s more. It will only come to be if we get the criminals out of our government. That’s something that the American people have been waking up to, that nothing will change for the better until they are gone. I’m in full support of our government providing whatever assistance and backing the Iranian people need, as long as they are actually helping. They have had a long history of only helping themselves but part of that is our fault too for not doing more to stop them.

    Iran’s Devastating Earthquake Sparks Criticism of Regime’s Response 


    NCRI Staff

    NCRI — Recently, severe, random earthquakes have occurred across the globe. On Sunday evening a 7.3 Richter quake hit the Iran-Iraq border. Iran’s official IRNA news agency reports that at a minimum, 530 people were killed and more than 8,000 injured. Tens of thousands of homes and apartments were leveled.

    However, casualty statistics may be well beyond those reported by the media, according to Farhad Tajari, a member of Iran’s parliament from Ghasr Shireen, a town in western Iran that suffered enormous damage.

    Iran lies on several tectonic plates, and after an earthquake, the Iranian people suffer extreme conditions. In fact, 152 aftershocks continued to cause serious damage during the first 24 hours after the initial quake. 526 villages and 137,000 people in Iran’s Kermanshah province are facing grave danger.

    Sarpol Zahab is the most devastated town. It is located close to the Iraqi border. Authorities report that the quake has destroyed many buildings in this poverty stricken town.

    50% of the province’s schools have suffered serious damage according to reports, said the Head of the state Public Relations Office in Kermanshah.
    “My entire family of 20 people, including 15 kids, are all sitting in our cars,” Nosser in Sarpol Zahab told ILNA. “Our fuel is very low. They haven’t provided any tents or kerosene. We are freezing from the cold. There is no food.” YouTube reports from this town describe dire conditions.

    Although there are still no reports from many villages, many say that officials of the Iranian regime have failed to take proper actions.

    Heshmat Alavi a political and rights activist focusing on Iran and the Middle East writes in his article for Forbes, writes, “The reaction shown to each earthquake by the ruling regime in Iran is far different from its counterparts across the globe. Media censorship, excruciating delay in sending even minimum support and imposing a tight security atmosphere to quell any possible sign of unrest is Tehran’s response to such natural disasters.”

    Reports indicate that in another Iranian border town, Ghasr Shireen, the governor complained that tents had not been distributed to the earthquake victims. “The weather is not good and people need to sleep in tents because of the aftershocks. But I don’t know why there is no sign of the Red Crescent,” Akbar Akbari said.

    It is reported that approximately 90% of residential homes in the town of Thalath Baba Jani have suffered 50 to 100% destruction. There are 161 villages in this region, and close to 70% of the village homes have been destroyed, Akbari added.

    Hospitals in western Iran are said to be unable to provide care to the huge number of casualties, as well, there is a shortage of ambulances.

    Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General, expressed his grief and urgently called for action to provide care for the earthquake victims.

    Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian opposition, sent her condolences to her compatriots and asked the local youth, especially, to “rush to the aide of people in the quake-stricken areas and help those trapped under the wreckage.”

    Iran’s capital, Tehran, with a population of 15 million, is a prime target for devastating earthquake damage. The city “is only ten percent prepared for a possible earthquake,” according to remarks made by the Iranian regime’s own Crisis Management Organization chief. He added that more than 80% of the country is prone to natural disasters.

    The earthquake on Sunday reminded the region of another dangerous aspect of Iran’s controversial nuclear program.
