    By Masoud Dalvand

    At a press conference on Wednesday, August 8th, prominent Belgian and European lawyers announced new points regarding the Iranian regime’s foiled terror plot in Europe, including information on dignitaries from Europe and the Middle East who have asked to enter the case as private plaintiffs and to file their complaint against the Iranian regime.

    At the conference, the representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) provided new information on Assadollah Assadi, the “third counselor” of the Iranian embassy in Vienna and the head of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence station there, who was the mastermind and commander of the plot and is currently detained in Germany. The new information obtained through the network of the People’s Mojahedin rganization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) from inside of the regime, revealed the decision-making structure and the hierarchy for the implementation of this plot.

    Speakers at the conference were:

    William Bourdon: Renowned human rights lawyer (France) in brief referred to the case on the table and confirmed the arrest of the Assadollah Assadi the terrorist diplomat.

    Mr. Rik Vanreusel at the press conference in Brussels represented many European personalities & elected officials who’ve entered the case as private plaintiffs in this case of foiled attack against the rally for a free Iran.

    Serge de Patoul: The opposition of Iran is the primary victim of the terrorism and I am here to emphasis on this matter.

    Former Prime Minister of Algeria,Sid Ahmed Ghozali: I’m here because I was at Free Iran 2018 rally with hundreds of personalities who were the potential victims of this foiled attack. I am among the private plaintiffs filling a complaint against the Iranian regime.

    Mohammad Mohaddessin

    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.

    Getting to know the Iranian regime’s main opposition 

    Interim-Session-of-the-National-Council-of-Resistance-of-Iran-10

    The National council of Resistance of Iran with Maryam Rajavi as the president

    On June 20, 1981, the security forces of the Iranian regime opened fire on a peaceful, 500,000–strong demonstration in Tehran, putting a violent end in a tenuous era of peaceful political activism that had started in February 1979 after popular protests toppled the Shah regime and saw the rise of Ruhollah Khomeini and the mullahs to power. On the morrow of June 20, the regime’s forces would arrest, torture and execute anyone affiliated with opposition groups, especially the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

    On July 21, while Khomeini’s regime was fast busy arresting and executing Iranian opposition members by the droves, Massoud Rajavi, the leader of PMOI/MEK, founded the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a coalition of all forces that sought freedom and democracy in Iran.

    Months later, the headquarters of the NCRI were moved to France to create a political umbrella for the struggle for freedom inside Iran.

    At present, 37 years later, the NCRI is the largest and longest standing coalition of Iranian opposition groups against the regime of Tehran and has managed to stand despite countless conspiracies by the Iranian regime and its foreign allies and proponents. Regardless of their station, the members of the NCRI take active part in protests, demonstrations and activities that aim to expose the Iranian regime’s brutality and promote democracy and freedom in Iran.

    The members of the NCRI each have an equal voice and vote in the decisions of the Council, regardless of their political and organizational affiliations. The NCRI’s charter states it seeks to topple the Khomeini regime and to establish a transitional government which will represent all faiths, ethnicities and political tendencies. The transitional government’s main goal is to prepare the grounds for a democratic state and will last a maximum of six months, until the country becomes ready for free and fair elections.

    During the six-month transitional period, Iran’s new constitutional parliament will take shape and will oversee the elections.

    The NCRI is an inclusive coalition, where all walks of life have a voice. More than half of the members of the NCRI are women, a stark contrast to the mullah-ruled Iran, where women are oppressed and under-represented.

    The political platform of the NCRI is summarized by the 10-point plan of its president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, which has garnered support among political figures, religious leaders and rights activists worldwide, because it addresses all the problems that the world and the Iranian people face in respect with the Iranian regime. Following are key highlights of Mrs. Rajavi’s platform:

    • Free and fair elections and popular vote is the only legitimate path to political power.
    • Respect for freedom of expression, media, political affiliation, and assembly, along with unconditional and uncensored access to internet and other sources of information.
    • The abolishment of the death penalty.
    • Separation of church and state: Freedom of religion and the banning of any form of discrimination based on religion.
    • Gender equality: Banning of discrimination against women and the abolishment of laws that undermine women’s rights in marriage, divorce, clothing, education and employment.
    • Modern legal and judiciary structures: The abolishment of the mullahs’ Sharia law and the incorporation of the presumption of innocence, the right to defense and the right to be tried in a public court.
    • Commitment to human rights based on the Universal Declaration of Humans Rights, and its international covenants and conventions.
    • Commitment to a market economy, with equal opportunity for all Iranians.
    • Peaceful coexistence with other countries and an end to the meddling and destabilizing activities of the mullahs’ regime.
    • Commitment to a non-nuclear Iran. Banning of the development of weapons of mass destruction.

    US State Dept: “Iran uses embassies as cover to plot terrorist attacks” 

    The U.S State Department

    The U.S. Department of State

    July 11, 2018 – Less than two weeks after the Iranian opposition convention in Paris where a massive crowd and a large number of international dignitaries joined to express their support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) coalition as the alternative for the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran, and the following foiling of a terror plot blueprinted by Tehran involving the arrest of an Iranian diplomat and five other individuals in Belgium, Germany and France, the U.S. State Department held a briefing on Tuesday specifically saying the Iranian regime is using its embassies “as cover to plot terrorist attacks.”

    This briefing also covered meetings between State Department officials and their counterparts abroad.

    “We discussed new ways to deprive the regime of revenues to terrorize people and to terrorize other nations. We discussed how Iran uses embassies as cover to plot terrorist attacks,” the senior State Department official explained.

    “The most recent example is the plot that the Belgians foiled, and we had an Iranian diplomat out of the Austrian embassy as part of the plot to bomb a meeting of Iranian OPPOSITION leaders in Paris. And the United States is urging all nations to carefully examine diplomats in Iranian embassies to ensure their countries’ own security. If Iran can plot bomb attacks in Paris, they can plot attacks anywhere in the world, and we urge all nations to be vigilant about Iran using embassies as diplomatic cover to plot terrorist attacks,” the official added.

    The Iranian regime has a history of plotting and staging terror attacks in the Green Continent.

    “The most recent plot in Europe by Iranians is another chapter in a long history that dates back to 1984, when Iran was starting these hijackings on commercial airliners, bombings, assassinations,” the official continued.
    “So, when you look at what Iran has done just in Europe since 1984 and continuing up to the present, all nations need to exercise vigilance to protect themselves against the Iranian threat. And this is only the most recent example of Iran using diplomatic cover to plot terrorism. And we certainly want all countries to make good decisions about their own security, and we think Iran presents an enduring threat to nations, and they need to be vigilant.”

    When asked if the State Dept. takes the arrest of an Iranian regime diplomat seriously, the official confirmed and added, “We are working very closely with the Belgians and the Austrians and the Germans to get to the bottom of this plot to conduct a bomb attack in Paris that had two Americans speaking, attending.”

    In reference to a question on the party responsible the State Dept. officially explicitly said Washington believes the Iranian regime was behind this plot and described as “ludicrous” Tehran’s claims of this being a “false flag” plot carried out by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

    What do Iranian dissidents seek? 

    A large segment of the Iranian diaspora will be at the Paris Grand Gathering

    June 23, 2018 – We’re just a week away from the annual Iranian opposition convention in Paris. In this rally, a large segment of the Iranian people, either living in exile or those who have amazingly been able to escape the Iranian regime’s siege and reach countries abroad, will be gathering to inform the world once again about the very tumultuous situation in Iran.

    Why the Iranian dissidents’ rally?

    Following the U.S. elections and Donald Trump becoming President after tracing his line in the sand from day one of his campaign, the Iranian people poured into the streets in December 2017 and launched a wave of nationwide protests.

    The city of Mashhad in northeast Iran witnessed locals begin massive demonstrations, protesting difficult living conditions. The fire of these rallies quickly spread to over 140 cities across the country.

    The slogans heard, first focusing on skyrocketing prices and unprecedented poverty, quickly evolved into protesting the Iranian regime’s meddling in regional countries, the security atmosphere imposed throughout the society, corruption, cruelty, lack of social freedoms, and the rights of minorities and women.

    Protesters were seen describing the Iranian regime leader as a “dictator” and “murderer,” demanding Ali Khamenei step down from power. U.S. President Donald Trump immediately sent a series of tweets supporting the demonstrators and expressing his support. This backing by Trump and his administration continues to this day.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also sent a series of tweets describing the Iranian regime as “criminal,” adding 5,000 people were arrested in the country’s popular protests.

    “5,000 Iranians arrested in January’s protests. 30 women jailed for protesting the hijab. Hundreds of Sufi dervishes, dozens of environmentalists, 400 Ahwazis, 30 Isfahan farmers – all imprisoned by #Iran’s criminal regime. Iranian people deserve respect for their human rights,” Pompeo wrote in one tweet.

    What is the Iranian opposition seeking?

    Iran’s religious dictatorship lacks the tolerance of any voice of dissent. In Iran, all such dissent will be responded with bullets, imprisonment, torture, persecution, and arrest.

    The Iranian people, of which more than 80 percent live in poverty, do not wish to see their national treasures wasted on a nuclear program, ballistic missiles or exporting terrorism to Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Lebanon.

    Iran’s neighboring countries are reaching their limits in regards to Tehran’s meddling, saying enough is enough with the mullahs’ intervention in the wars of Syria and Yemen.

    It is quite natural that the world must hear these voices.

    With this objective in mind, the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), along with various sectors of Iran’s society will be reiterating their demands in the upcoming Paris convention to garner further support for their ultimate victory of establishing and a free and democratic Iran, and providing the Iranian people the opportunity to realize their dreams.

    Who is the alternative to Iran’s regime? 

     

    Grand Gathering of Iranians-for a FreeIran

    June 22, 2018 – Following the ongoing Dec/Jan protests aimed at bringing freedom for Iran’s suffering people, there are two vital issues at hand:

    1. Overthrowing the mullahs’ dictatorship
    2. The alternative to this regime

    The more we trek forward, the question of who is this regime’s alternative becomes all the more imperative. In such sensitive circumstances it is quite natural to see many parties claiming to be the alternative to Tehran’s mullahs.

    It is also natural that all groups and individuals, associated or non-associated to a third party, those willing to sacrifice and opportunists seeking to jump at the opportunity, are surfacing and claiming to be patriotic in nature and opposing the ruling apparatus.

    This resembles the end of winter and the arrival spring, bringing about the birth of plants. Alongside flowers, however, we also witness the growth of weeds. Next to flowers we see tall and powerful trees full of leaves and blossoms.

    When the air speaks of a revolution and change, there are many parties seen rising from their sleep ready to hijack the ruling state, and willing to resort to any and all deceptive measure necessary.

    They begin to claim of having a long struggle history against the ruling regime, forging records of years in jail and enduring torture. Worst of all, through demonizing propaganda, they begin to hinder the efforts of truly democratic entities seeking to bring about real change.

    In such circumstances, the question is who is the true alternative to Iran’s regime?

    The history of revolutions across the globe provide the following realities:

    1) An alternative organ has members willing to sacrifice their all, and its enmity against the ruling regime is crystal clear for all parties.

    This entity, involved in a continuous war against  the enemy, has seen many of its members lose their lives fighting for their people.

    This entity also has seen many of its members imprisoned by different regimes ruling their country. These prisoners are resilient in the face of torture and harsh conditions, leading to their execution.

    This entity has complete faith in its objective, being freedom for its people.

    2) This alternative has roots in its nation and has risen for their cause.

    3) This alternative has access and relies on popular sources for its intelligence. When the enemy launches massive clampdowns, this alternative’s roots amongst the people allows it to obtain intelligence from the ruling regime and expose their true nature to the outside world.

    For example, the revelations made by the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) regarding the Iranian regime’s clandestine nuclear program.

    4) A true alternative should not be associated to any foreign power. It must be independent to the very meaning of the world and especially rely financially on its people and supporters.

    5) This alternative must have a strong, democratic organization.

    6) This alternative must have a specific leadership established around the cause of opposing the ruling regime and through the years proving its honesty and competence. The leadership must be fully involved in the struggle against the ruling dictatorship, paying the very price of all the sufferings.

    7) This alternative must represent people from all walks of life in society and focus its efforts to establish a democratic state.

    8) This alternative must be recognized on a global scale and establish this recognition through years of struggle.

    Looking at Iran, the only entity fitting such criteria is the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a parliament-in-exile led by NCRI President Maryam Rajavi.

    The Iranian Diaspora is planning to hold its annual convention on June 30th in Paris to express their support for democratic change in Iran.

    How Can The International Community Curb The Iran Threat? 

    The US policies of appeasement towards Iran have ended. When former President Barack Obama was in office, Iran was able to benefit from a complete lack of accountability. Obama, fearing that speaking out against the regime or condemning it for its belligerence would derail the 2015 nuclear deal, turned a blind eye much too frequently.

    Obama’s appeasement of Iran didn’t just fail to bring Iran back into line with international standards, it actually made the situation worse. Iran became more brazen and bold in its malign acts – both at home and across the Middle East.

    Current US President Donald Trump recognised that appeasement was not working and when he took office he declared that the so-called “golden years” for Iran were over.

    Trump has openly criticised the nuclear deal, and after several threats to pull out, he has given the signatories of the deal the deadline of 12th May to make the deal stronger. Trump said that the major flaws in the deal need to be fixed and Iran’s ballistic missile program should be addressed otherwise the United States will exit the deal.

    However, some experts are saying that taking a tough approach to Iran will not make much of a difference either.

    Firstly, not all leaders are willing to take the same stance as Trump. The government of the United Kingdom staunchly refuses to list the notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organisation. The IRGC is not just vaguely linked to terrorism – it is an organiser and an instigator of terrorism. Dozens of MPs in Britain called on the Home Secretary to designate the group, but the government still refused.

    Secondly, Iran has had many different policies applied to it over the years. All possible options and policies have been tested. And they all failed.

    This leaves regime change. For years, the main opposition to the regime – the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) – has been saying that the only viable option is regime change. This is because of all the tried and failed policies and the incapability of the regime to reform. The regime has been claiming moderation and international leaders have been saying that it is in the process of reform at various times. Yet reform is impossible.

    Regime change in Iran will be driven by the people. At the end of last year, millions of Iranians took to the streets to protest against the economic problems that are being aggravated by the regime’s mismanagement and corruption. But the protests quickly turned into anti-government demonstrations.

    The leader of the NCRI, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, who has been behind the people of Iran for years, believes that to achieve freedom, democracy and human rights via regime change, it is essential for the Iranian regime’s income to be cut at the source with sanctions. One such example would be to stop it from selling oil.

    The IRGC also must be designated as a terrorist organisation.

    But most importantly, the people of Iran need the backing of the international community in their continued resistance.

    Destruction Of Syrian Dictator’s Chemical Plant Is A Necessary Step To End The Catastrophe In Syria 

    And it must be complemented by the complete dismissal of the IRGC and their mercenary militias from across the region

    The targeting of centers and facilities for the production and maintenance of the deadly chemical weapons of the brutal Syrian dictator and the dismantling of the war machine of this regime is an indispensable step to end the Syrian tragedy, which, for seven years, has killed more than 500,000 people among them children , women and The innocent and defenseless people and also displaced half of the Syrian population, and its scope has gone well beyond the borders of this country.

    This action, which has been demanded by Syrian people and freedom lovers of this country and other countries in the region, must be completed by expelling the anti-human clerical regime and its Revolutionary Gurards and mercenaries from Syria, Yemen, Iraq and other countries of the region.

    Iranian regime is the leading element of survival of Bashar al-Assad and the main source of terrorism and extremism and warmongering in the Middle East and the vast parts of the world.

    The policy of appeasement with the ruling religious fascism in Iran has led the regime to unprecedentedly increase its crime against humanity and war crimes without paying any price at all. It is time to put an end to appeasement and neglect against these crimes, which are flagrant violations of internationally recognized rules and standards.

    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.
