    Maryam Rajavi: Welcoming the Great Nowruz of Freedom 

    Maryam Rajavi: Welcoming the Great Nowruz of Freedom

    Maryam Rajavi attended a ceremony marking the Iranian New Year, Nowruz, on March 20th at a gathering of members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Albania.

    At the outset, Maryam Rajavi laid wreath to a memorial in honor of the martyrs of the December-January uprising.

    She congratulated the Iranian people on the arrival of the New Year, noting that the Iranian year 1396 ended with the season of uprising and that 1397 must be turned into a year full of uprisings. This is an uprising and revolution until victory, she said.

    Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and a number of Albanian political figures also took part in the celebrations.

    The following is the text of Maryam Rajavi’s remarks:

    This is the spring of uprising. Be it that in this victorious journey, the uprisings culminate in the spring of freedom

    Fellow compatriots, dear friends, sisters, and brothers,

    Happy New Year and Happy Nowruz!


    With the arrival of the New Year, we can hear the steps of Iranian protesters in 142 cities across the country. We hear protesters and the PMOI combatants of freedom marching, who will ultimately end the reign of this evil regime.

    This year’s spring has passed through the uprisings. Indeed, this is a spring of uprising. Let us hope that in its victorious journey it would lead to the spring of freedom.

    We are delighted to be joined today in this Nowruz celebration by the long-time friend and supporter of Iranian Resistance in the most difficult days of Camp Ashraf, Mayor Giuliani.

    Since the very beginning, he opposed the terrorist designation of the Iranian people’s just resistance for freedom that sought to rid Iran of the fundamentalist mullahs, the real godfathers of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL).

    He also opposed the PMOI’s relocation from Ashraf to the killing field named, “Liberty”, sugarcoated by the United Nations and the UNHCR, considering it to be sheer duplicity.
    He represented the conscientious Americans who also stood with the people of Iran during the 2009 uprisings, opposed the policy of appeasement, and pointed to the right policy.

    I also welcome the dear friend of the PMOI, Minister Pandeli Majko. The names of Pandeli Majko and his wife, Enkelejda, will be remembered in the history of relations between the people of Iran and Albania.
    And we also welcome Mrs. Elona Gjebrea, and Mr. Fatmir Mediu. We thank you for all your efforts that broke through all the obstacles. You are all very welcomed.

    We can, and we must turn the New Year into a year of uprisings

    Fellow compatriots, sisters, and brothers,

    Iran’s society was characterized by protests and uprisings throughout the past year.
    In spring, the Call for Justice movement for the victims of the 1988 massacre, defeated Khamenei’s plans in the sham presidential elections.

    In summer, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran elected their new Secretary General and gained momentum to prepare for the resistance and uprisings.

    In autumn, in the wake of the earthquake in Kermanshah Province, the people of Iran expressed their rage against, and hatred of, the mullahs.

    And in winter, the uprisings erupted nationwide aimed at overthrowing the clerical regime. Since then, the rising waves of protests have been striking at the wall of repression.

    Last year ended with the season of uprising, and the coming year can and must be turned into a year of uprisings. And this is going to be an uprising, a revolution, until victory.

    1,000 Ashrafs as centers of rebellion

    Fellow compatriots,
    In nature, spring follows winter. But the spring of freedom can come at any moment, though not by itself. It will come only if we show our determination and would be willing to sacrifice our lives. It will come only if we are organized and united around a single strategy.

    For this reason, the uprisings in December and January brought the fresh scent of spring in the middle of winter.

    This uprising emerged from under repression. This is an uprising that organizes and unites.

    1,000 Ashrafs or 1,000 centers of rebellion manifested themselves in this uprising.

    Indeed, in the face of such brutal repression, so much demagoguery and deception, and so much misinformation to demonize the resistance, where did these countless young protesters all across the country come from? If this is not a miracle, what is your answer? Yes, this is a miracle; a miracle borne out of perseverance. This miracle came about because of a heavy price paid to keep aloft the banner of the regime’s overthrow. This is a miracle borne out of long years of suffering which sowed the seeds of protests and resistance in society every day.

    We hail the martyrs of Ashraf and Liberty, and the 14-year epic and glorious perseverance in Ashraf and Liberty. The Iranian Resistance’s Leader Massoud Rajavi was correct in saying that Ashraf has multiplied in prisons and across our nation.

    The Iranian people have never accepted this regime, which explains why protests and uprisings have erupted repeatedly against the regime throughout these years.

    But how is this year’s uprising different from the past?

    The difference is that the resistance movement has found the answer for the regime’s overthrow, and the regime does not have any solution for it.

    This time around, 1,000 centers of rebellion played a part in the uprising. And this is why the chants of “death to Khamenei” is heard everywhere.

    Army of spring is on the way and winter of reactionaries must go

    I said the spring of freedom could come at any time. This means that the situation will never go back to the time before the uprisings started.

    The Iranian people are determined to bring about a new era with the help of the combatants of freedom by toppling the religious dictatorship.

    This uprising showed us how to attain our freedom through our own efforts. For this reason, it is new and is directed against backwardness and fundamentalism. It is sketching the future of Iran and is presenting an alternative to the regime.

    Khamenei was forced to acknowledge the reality that the PMOI had been prepared months ago and called for the uprising. He said so to prepare the regime for confronting the PMOI.

    But the time to preserve this decadent regime has passed. Spring of freedom is on its way and winter of repression must go.

    When the people of Iran have the option of a free and democratic government based on the separation of religion and state, and based on justice and equality, why should they have to be content with a reactionary, decadent and inhumane regime?

    The clerical regime preserves its rule by keeping the children of Iran hungry and slaughtering the children of Syria.

    The incompetence and the anti-popular nature of this regime has been exposed at every turn, whether it was the earthquake in Kermanshah Province or the crash of the Tehran-Yasouj airliner, or the explosion of Azadshahr mine in Golestan Province.

    All the factions of this regime, including the so-called moderates and reformists, insist on suppression of protesters, and its so-called moderate president takes pride in siding with the regime’s murderous militias.

    Recently, Rouhani’s Minister of Interior wholeheartedly thanked all factions and media of the regime for their full participation in the crackdown on the uprising in December and January. They have repeatedly declared that they are aboard a ship, which if punctured by the uprising, will result in all of them drowning.

    Today, across Iran, the people are chanting death to the Supreme Leader, on whom the regime relies.

    Having plundered the country’s wealth and resources, the mullahs have run out of cash. The banks, pension funds, and the government are totally crippled and bankrupt.

    Our nation has paid the price for the mullahs’ theft, corruption, and incompetence.

    People have nothing to eat and the economy is in recession. Villages have been destroyed and the cities have become underprivileged. The industries have been shut down and workers have been fired and impoverished. The farmers have been deprived of water, and their life and freedom. And the people’s properties and assets have been plundered.

    Millions of girls and boys are forced into hard labor instead of going to school. And a large segment of the population is hungry and unemployed.

    An uprising and a revolution are needed to alleviate these sufferings.

    The New Day (Nowruz) for which we are striving will bring happiness and hope to this impoverished and oppressed society.

    Khamenei has apologized to the people of Iran for the injustices his regime has brought about. But the Iranian people are saying that is too little, too late.

    If Khamenei is sincere in his apology, he must say that the absolute rule of the mullahs has denied the people their sovereignty, that it is the source of all corruption, and it must be overthrown just like the Shah’s regime.

    The secret to national salvation is death to the principle of the velayat-e faqih and long live the army of freedom

    Fellow compatriots,

    Europe’s long-overdue focus on the threats posed by the Iranian regime’s regional warmongering and its ballistic missile program is of course a positive step.

    Further steps are needed, however, including the expulsion of the regime from the region, shutting down its missile and uranium enrichment programs, and blocking its access to the international banking system.

    All these steps are necessary. However, a comprehensive, decisive, and strategic response to the regime entails standing with the Iranian people and Resistance.

    Iran uprising has brought up the freshness of spring. Europe must also abandon the decades-long antiquated policy of rapprochement and recognize the struggle of the Iranian people to overthrow this regime. It should also recognize the democratic alternative, i.e., the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

    The people of Iran demand immediate action, change, overthrow, and freedom. They demand bread, jobs, and housing. They demand the immediate abolition of all government coercions, including the compulsory hijab.

    Dear compatriots,

    For the Iranian Resistance and all its members and supporters, including the centers of rebellion inside Iran and the sympathizers of the Resistance around the globe, 1397 is going to be a year of unwavering commitment to continue and lead the protests to their ultimate goal.

    It is with such determination and such a commitment, that I congratulate the defiant people inside Iran and millions of Iranians abroad.

    Congratulations to members of the NCRI and supporters of the Iranian Resistance around the world.

    Congratulations to the PMOI freedom fighters. You have the responsibility to continue the protests and expand the centers of rebellion.
    My warmest congratulations to the young protesters. Spring sends its greetings to you all.

    And congratulations to Massoud Rajavi, who formulated the strategy to foment the uprisings and bring about the overthrow of the ruling regime by relying on 1,000 centers of rebellion, led by the combatants of freedom.

    In the beginning of the New Year, let us remember those who gave their lives in this uprising. We will never forget them. They remained unknown, but they were the source of pride and recognition for the Iranian nation. We particularly honor the innocent youths who lost their lives under torture. They are always with us in spirit. They are the sacrifice of a nation as it strives to gain its freedom.

    We also hail the prisoners of the uprising and all political prisoners in Iran. We tell them that your endurance has brought Iran’s freedom much closer.

    And finally, I would like to tell my fellow compatriots in Iran that freedom is within reach, but it can be realized only through our efforts and our determination.

    As Massoud Rajavi once said, “The secret to national salvation, is death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih, long live the Army of Freedom.”

    So, help your children in their protests. Help the centers of rebellion. By expanding the protests and resistance you must rise against the religious tyranny and welcome the great Nowruz of freedom for the people of Iran.

    The mullahs should rest assured that this uprising, and revolution will continue until victory no matter how long it would take.

    Congratulations on the beginning of the New Year 1397.

    Nowruz of uprisings, Nowruz for Mojahedin, Nowruz for centers of rebellion

    I would like to conclude my remarks by addressing you, my sisters, and brothers here in Albania:
    Congratulations on the New Year, and for being so determined.

    Since the onset of the Resistance, we have mixed the tradition of Nowruz with our call for freedom, meaning that we will maintain high hopes for the realization of freedom and will continue our relentless struggle and make whatever sacrifice to achieve it.

    Let us pay homage to the martyrs of the 1980s and our massacred brothers and sisters in 1988. Let us honor the martyrs of Ashraf and Liberty and all those who gave their lives for freedom.

    Today, we are celebrating the Nowruz of uprisings, the Nowruz of the PMOI and other combatant forces, and the Nowruz of the centers of rebellion.

    Your strategy has proven to be correct. Your perseverance and suffering have borne fruit.

    Precisely for this reason, we must renew our commitments and responsibilities as Nowruz comes. You will be playing a decisive role, as well as your organization. We are in a decisive year.

    This year is one of taking on greater commitments, it is time to refresh, it is time to strengthen our resolve to hope and to realize those hopes.

    I hope, and I am confident that this year, you can shoulder hundred times more responsibilities in order to advance at remarkable speed our historical commitment, namely freedom for Iran.

    In renewing this commitment, I again congratulate you on the New Year.

    Iran’s genuine Nowruz(Persian New Year) is on its way. 


    Maryam Rajavi: The protest movement has not stopped. Waves of protests follow one another. This is how people rise up and create their genuine feast of freedom.

    This winter, entwined with protests and uprisings, is now going to give its place to spring in such a way to prepare the future year for movement and uprising and for advancement towards victory and freedom.
    In reality, the protests did not stop their movement despite widespread arrests and especially the regime’s slaughter of innocent youths under torture. The movement continued to thrive in the general strike of Baneh, the extensive protests of the Steel workers of Isfahan, the protests by workers of Haft Tappeh Sugar Cane Factory in Khuzistan, and the uprising of the farmers in east Isfahan. Waves of protests follow one another.
    This is how people rise up and create their genuine feast of freedom.
    The rise of this blissful Nowrouz is coupled with the fall of the old regime and the ruling fundamentalists. The mullahs’ religious tyranny faces multiple challenges: A powerful popular protest movement, an internal fight over Khamenei’s heir, its shrinking financial resources, a deadlock in the war in Syria, international tensions over its ballistic missile program and the JCPOA, the defections from its Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), etc. However, the most terrifying for the regime are four major incidents:
    The most terrifying things for the regime are four major predicaments: The ubiquitous chants of “death to Khamenei”, eruption of the protests despite maximum suppression, and the absence of external escape goats such as the war with Iraq or the fight against Daesh, and assistance from advocates of the policy of appeasement. This year, in contrast to the previous years, the regime has no way out.
    The clerical dictatorship is at an impasse which is the product of years of steadfast perseverance of the people of Iran, their valiant children in the PMOI, and the protesters. This is, of course, very important but what is more inspiring for the people of Iran is the new horizon which has emerged through the uprisings in December and January and is going to answer the question of regime change by 1,000 bastions of rebellion, 1,000 Ashraf’s and the Army of Freedom.
    The time has come for the great house cleaning in our homeland.
    Iran’s genuine Nowruz is on its way.

    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.”

    Iranian People’s Tolerance Towards the Ruling Regime Is Running Out 

    You could barely find a single day on which state officials or media are not warning over Iranian people’s losing patience with the ruling regime.

    Sadegh Zibakalam, a university lecturer close to Rouhani says “many say that it’s no use trying to put the regime right as the system is incapable of being improved. I keep being criticized and attacked by many, accusing me of attempting to prevent the regime from being collapsed.”

    State-run Etemad Online website on February 27, 2018, reports on the problems and sufferings of poverty-stricken people who are fed up with the regime, writing “today, my fellow citizens are cheerless. They’re discontent, tired and full of complaints. It looks like a witch has secretly cast a spell on them. What’s really under the skin of people’s hardships and behind the scenes of our endless tragic series? The officials need to roll out a new plan as soon as possible and rise up against people’s sources of difficulties and unrest. The officials have to believe that people are losing their patience.”

    Hossein Raghfar, an economist close to Rouhani, acknowledges that the society is pregnant with events which are the result of policies that have stripped the country of its social assets and pushed the society towards an explosive state, saying “these are just part of consequences of structural adjustment policies that have driven the society to a point of disintegration.” (State-run Fararou website, February 26, 2018)

    Meanwhile, Shahindokht Molaverdi, Hassan Rouhani’s Special Assistant, acknowledges in a different way the society’s explosive capacity and people’s hatred for the ruling regime, saying “the most important gap in our society today is the one between the government and people. We need to figure out how to use such discussions to reduce such gaps rather than causing them to grow even deeper.” (State-run Khabaronline website, February 27, 2018)

    As could be seen, every regime official is worried about the society’s eruptive state and the ruling regime’s fate, while such recommendations like “devising a new plan”, “not to let people down” or “closing the gaps” only serve to prove the point.

    But is it really possible for the ruling regime to come out with a new strategy or to close the gap between itself and the Iranian people?

    It’s clear that the answer to such questions is an absolute NO. The Iranian regime had nearly 40 years, only to show at the end that — due to its backward and anti-people nature — it has totally acted against Iranian people’s interests and pushed the society to today’s eruptive state by oppressing people and plundering their properties; conditions that the depraved Iranian people can no longer stand. They want the regime in its entirety to collapse and are not going to settle for anything less.

    The fact is that the gap between people and the ruling religious fascism has grown to a level that is not going to be fixed by anything other than a regime collapse, a true demand reflected in the Iranian people’s recent uprising and protests in the most expressive way possible.

    “Surprising” or Deadly Coercion?! 

    Poisonous cup of missile and regional wars for Iran regime

    By Masoud Dalvand

    On February 27, the so-called hardliner gang media, worrying about the next-poisonous cups which the regime should drink, wrote: “History tells us that the high secrecy about talks is a prelude to surprise (regime)!” (Mehdi Mohammadi, member of Jalili negotiator team February 27)

    But why surprise? Is it not clear that Khamenei is in the process of all the negotiations of the regime?!

    Yes, Khamenei himself has repeatedly said that he is in the process of discussions; therefore, what is for Khamenei and Rouhani in the landscape, is not “surprising”, but a pressure that has forced them to go to the next negotiations. However, “there is not any signal from the Rouhani government”, and finally, this situation is nothing more than coming to the next May and they will say that “we had no choice except to accept their terms”! (Mehdi Mohammadi-February 27)

    nuclear poison cup

    Cartoon from “Badban بادبان” about drinking of poisonous cup of nuclear deal by Khamenei

    The reason for this coercion is nothing but the weakness and fragility of the entire regime in the balance of power. The regime, which at the moment is involved with deadly crises such as, regional wars, economic bankruptcy, the gangs conflict and, most importantly, the Iranian people’s uprising, is so weary that it only has to accept the forced conditions of the opposite side.

    It is not unreasonable that the French Foreign Minister, on the eve of the visit of his country’s president to Tehran, humiliates the regime and said:

    “Iran’s missile ambition is very worrying!” (February 27),

    And New York Times writes: “European diplomats say about the terms of an agreement There is consensus on the plan for ballistic missiles and unrestricted inspections of Iran’s military bases (February 27).

    Yes, this situation is a regime that is at a slump, falling under the deadly crises every day, until the people and the Iranian Resistance take the deadly blow to it and be destroyed forever.

    Prospects for Change in 2018-US and EU policy on Iran- Senior U.S. Lawmakers meet Maryam Rajavi 


    Senior Members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the United States House of Representatives, Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Chair of the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia and Emerging Threats, and Judge Ted Poe (R-TX), Chair of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-Proliferation and Trade, met withMaryam Rajavi, on Saturday, February 24, 2018.

    In the meeting which took place at Maryam Rajavi’s residence in Auvers-sur-Oise, the two sides discussed the uprising by the Iranian people that began on December 28, 2017, its consequences and the options before the international community.

    The senior U.S. lawmakers condemned the Iranian regime for its brutal crackdown on the protests and underscored that the international community must break its silence and inaction vis-à-vis the atrocities perpetrated by the regime against its own citizens. They also urged the U.S. Government to impose comprehensive sanctions, including financial and banking sanctions on Iranian regime’s officials and entities, especially those involved in suppressing the protesters. They also called for measures that would enable the Iranian people to overcome the blocking of the internet and allow them access to communication systems. The lawmakers urged the U.S. Government to force the expulsion of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and its proxy militias from the countries in the region.

    “The uprising marked a turning point in the struggle of the Iranian people to attain freedom and democracy,” Maryam Rajavi said, adding that the “chants of ‘death to Khamenei’ and ‘death to Rouhani,’ and ‘reformer, hardliner, the game is now over’ made it palpably clear that the Iranian people demand the overthrow of this regime.”

    She emphasized that this uprising will continue until the overthrow of the clerical regime because the underlying factors that propelled the uprising, namely economic mismanagement, rampant government corruption, increasing poverty and inflation, escalating suppression, and a whole host of other social and political problems cannot and will not be resolved.

    Maryam Rajavi added, “With the Iranian people’s uprising, the clerical regime has entered its final phase and as such any investment in this regime is doomed to fail. It is time for the international community to stand with the Iranian people and not with the clerical regime.” Maryam Rajavi also called on the international community to exert greater pressure on the clerical regime to secure the speedy release of all protesters.

    “The U.S. Government needs to officially recognize that the Iranian people reject the corrupt and repressive mullah regime in Iran. We, in Congress and the U.S. Government must make it clear that we are on the side of the Iranian people and not their Islamic, fanatic and corrupt allies who oppress them,” Rep. Rohrabacher said.

    Rep. Poe emphasized that the world community must hold the Iranian regime’s officials accountable for their atrocities and assist the people of Iran in their noble quest for freedom and democracy.

    Then two members of the US Congress and a number of European political figures attended a conference called: ” Prospects for Change in 2018-US and EU policy on Iran”

    Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Chair of the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia and Emerging Threats, at the conference  said: “We’re at this meeting,bcz this is not just about freedom. There’s strong relationship BTW peace,freedom&prosperity.W/out Freedom its Iran‘s military adventurism that endangers the region.”

    Judge Ted Poe (R-TX), Chair of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-Proliferation and Trade at Conference said: ” There’re growing signs that the efforts of Iranian people are cracking the regime. The mullahs are nervous. The Iranian people are giving them nightmares.”

    Iran Regime Will Not See It’s 40th Anniversary 

    The Iranian Regime has just passed its 39th anniversary, but it should not see its 40th.

    In 1979, Ruhollah Khomeini returned from exile to hijack the popular movement to overthrow the dictatorial monarchy. He took power from the people who had done all the hard work and instituted his own theocratic dictatorship.

    Now, there is again a popular people’s protest in Iran- the biggest since 1979- and many in the West are wondering if this will be the end for the mullahs.

    The protests, which began over a draft budget that would slash subsidies for the poor and increase military spending, has shaken the Regime by taking on an anti-regime slant.

    Protesters attacked the buildings owned by suppressive forces, called for the removal of President Hassan Rouhani and Supreme Leader Ali Khomeini, and rejected Iran’s malign military escapades.

    The Regime’s suppressive forces were stretched to breaking point and had to call back forces from fighting on behalf of Bashar Assad in Syria to try and suppress the protesters. The Regime reacted with violence, shooting at least 50 people in the streets, arresting 8,000, and killing 12 via torture in prison.

    All of this suggests a Free Iran is coming sooner rather than later and it is time for the West to embrace this new reality.

    Ivan Sascha Sheehan, from the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Baltimore, wrote: “Policy toward Iran has historically been an enigma for Western powers and for Washington in particular. It could even be argued that U.S. policy toward Iran has been the bete noire for bipartisan administrations — Republican and Democrat — since the 1979 revolution.”

    The Iranian Regime and its apologists have long lied about the Regime’s popularity with the people, stability, regional meddling, suppression of the people, and its political makeup.

    Simply, the Regime is incredibly unpopular amongst its people but it has long suppressed the people and distracted the world from this through international interference.

    The Regime is not made up of “moderates” and “hardliners” because it doesn’t allow moderates to take political office, but it does allow its politicians to play at being moderates (making some nice speeches about human rights, not shouting “Death to America”) in order to gain concessions from the West when needed. Case in point, the nuclear deal, which did not improve the lives of the Iranian people but only the very rich.

    The West much challenge these lies, put pressure on the Iranian Regime, and support the Iranian people.

    Sheehan wrote: “An anti-regime uprising that has yet to conclude has left the regime vulnerable and defensive as it commemorates its 39th anniversary. If the world takes the proper course, there is no reason it should be allowed to celebrate its 40th.”

    Understanding Washington’s Fast-Evolving Policy on Iran – Analysis 


    On the doorstep of US President Donald Trump’s first National Security Strategy speech, the administration launched an unprecedented campaign of pinpointing the Iranian regime as the crosshairs on the epicenter of all extremism causing havoc across the Middle East, writes  Heshmat Alavi in Al Arabiya English.

    This comes following a Wall Street Journal article explaining how in the post-ISIS world Washington will begin pinpointing its focus and resources on the larger and more dangerous threat posed by Tehran, Alavi, a dissident writer and human rights activist, wrote on Monday, December 18, 2017.

    The Trump administration has made it clear that a wide array of destructive policies adopted by Tehran have become unacceptable, the article said.

    Described as a “first” by Reuters, last Thursday US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley displayed a detailed exhibition of Iranian equipment used to arm Yemen’s Houthi militias – long known to be backed by Iran’s regime – and thus, to destabilize the region, especially its archrival, Saudi Arabia.

    “We are not just focused on the nuclear program,” Haley said during a press conference at a US Department of Defense hangar where the Iranian equipment were placed before the media. “We’re also taking a hard look at Iran’s ballistic missile program, its arms exports, and its support for terrorists, proxy fighters and dictators.”

    The Iranian regime can also be described as the facilitator, and maybe even the godfather, of a slate of malign practices rendering suffering across the Arabian Peninsula, leading to the Levant and eastward to Central Asia.

    “It’s hard to find a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints all over it,” Haley continued, adding how this regime is “fanning the flames” of conflict.

    For decades the US State Department has considered Iran the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

    “We may actually be on the verge of meaningful and long overdue measures against Tehran on this very important and vital subject,” the article said.

    Advocates of engagement vis-à-vis the Iranian regime are accusing the US administration of trailing the path of launching a war with Iran.

    “Their intentions are far from preventing the US from entering a new war, but to protect Tehran from any strong measures, including international sanctions that target the regime and actually benefit the people by weakening the ruling system,” the article added.

    It went on to say, as emphasized by Ambassador Haley, it is high time for the international community to take decisive action, such as crippling sanctions targeting the regime and its belligerent institutions, to finally bring an end to what has become “a global threat.”

    The article added:

    The Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran, known for blowing the whistle on Tehran’s clandestine nuclear program, indicates how a “firm policy hinges on the following practical measures:

    • Evicting the IRGC and its proxy militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan, and preventing the transfer of Iran’s weaponry and troops to these countries;
    • Imposing comprehensive sanctions on Iran and the IRGC, especially preventing their access to the global banking system;
    • Referring Iran’s human rights violations dossier, particularly the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners, to The International Criminal Court, and placing the regime’s senior officials responsible for these crimes before justice;
    • Imposing previous UNSC resolutions covering Iran’s nuclear weapons program, banning uranium enrichment, and launching unconditional inspections into the regime’s military and non-
