    New York, Sept. 26, 2018 – The Iranian regime came under criticism at the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, a session specifically chaired by U.S. President Donald Trump focusing on the threats posed by Tehran’s mullahs and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

    Describing the mullahs’ regime as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the Iranian regime’s support for the Assad regime in butchering the Syrian people. Iran’s mullah should never be permitted to obtain nuclear weapons, he highlighted.

    Voicing his position to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Trump emphasized how the Iranian regime used money from the highly flawed deal for terrorism and creating havoc. The U.S. imposed sanctions to confront the Iranian regime’s malign activities, he continued.

    Washington calls on all UN members to cooperate with us in guaranteeing Iran never obtains nuclear weapons, Trump finalized.

    French President Emmanuel Macron highlighted the Iranian regime’s regional threat, with a special focus on the need to analyze and prevent the Iranian regime’s ballistic missiles program.

    The transfer of missiles to the Lebanese Hezbollah and Houthis in Yemen, both militia groups supported directly by the Iranian regime, were other issues members of the UN Security Council voiced concerns about and sought immediate action.

    Members of the Iranian Diaspora from across the world rallied in front of the UN headquarters in New York for the second consecutive day, protesting the presence of Hassan Rouhani, the president of the Iranian regime, and to echo the demands of thousands of protesters in Iran calling for regime change in their country. Yesterday, the protesters held a similar protest while Rouhani spoke at the 73rd UN General Assembly summit while having to overcome unfavorable weather conditions.

    The protesters used different methods to put on display the numerous crimes and illegal activities of the Iranian regime. Most concerning in the agenda of Rouhani, who has been received as a state leader at the UN and is being framed as a “moderate” figure by many western politician, is the worrying escalation of executions during his presidency. More than 3,500 people have been executed during six years of Rouhani’s presidency, according to figures published by the Iranian opposition and confirmed by many international human rights organizations.

    Maryam Rajavi: Eradicating The Clerical Regime’s Nuclear And Terrorism Threats Means Getting Rid Of The Regime In Its Entirety 

    Maryam Rajavi: Democratic change and an end to the Iran Regime

    Democratic change and an end to the religious fascism ruling Iran is a requisite for regional peace, democracy, security, and stability

    After several decades of appeasing the religious fascism ruling Iran and victimizing the Iranian people and Resistance, and simultaneous with the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – JCPOA), the President of the United States declared that the lavish payments to the clerical regime by the previous U.S. administration had been disastrous, adding that the sinister regime ruling Iran, the leading state sponsor of terror in the world today, “has funded its long reign of chaos and terror by plundering the wealth of its own people.”

    Speaking on behalf of the Iranian Resistance, which first revealed the Iranian regime’s secret nuclear program and facilities and has been the flag bearer of a non-nuclear Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said, “Eradicating the clerical regime’s nuclear and terrorism threats means getting rid of the regime in its entirety. A regime based on the principle of velayat-e faqih (absolute rule of the clergy) cannot exist without terrorism, suppression, and weapons of mass destruction.”

    “As in the past, any future investment in this regime is doomed to failure. As the Iranian Resistance has persistently declared, standing with the criminal mullahs, and empowering those responsible for, and the perpetrators of, the massacre of the Iranian people’s valiant children, will only embolden the religious fascists’ warmongering, export of fundamentalism and terrorism,” she emphasized.

    Mrs. Rajavi added, “As the nationwide uprising in December and January demonstrated, the Iranian people want to be liberated from religious oppression and despotism. Democratic change in Iran is inevitable and a free Iran is within reach. The end of religious dictatorship in Iran is a requisite for regional peace, democracy, security, and stability. This is the only way to end war and crisis in the region and avert a larger war.”

    “The United Nations Security Council must take up and refer to an international tribunal the dossier on the leaders of the Iranian regime’s terrorism and countless crimes against the Iranian people, especially the massacre of political prisoners,” she underscored.

    Editorial: A Way Out Of The JCPOA Crisis 

    The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action

    One of the most important international issues in recent weeks is the pending decision by the US President on whether to remain or withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal known as the JCPOA. During their visits to the White House, France’s President and Germany’s Chancellor pressed President Trump not to withdraw as he has hinted he would do.

    In the run up to the May 12 deadline for President Trump to make his decision, the fate of the Iran deal continues to dominate the agenda. However, there is a way out of this crisis. But it depends on whether Western leaders are prepared to consider it or if they would rather continue to ignore the facts like in the past and disregard potential solutions?

    There are two opposing views. Both sides say they seek security and the most effective way to prevent the Iranian regime from obtaining nuclear weapons.

    The Europeans claim that, despite its flaws, the JCPOA has to date halted the regime’s nuclear program and a degree of international monitoring is in place. They believe that there is no other viable option. If this is indeed Europe’s position, one could say that there is general consensus that there are many flaws in the JCPOA and if there are any other viable alternatives to prevent the regime from acquiring nuclear weapons they must certainly be pursued. To this end, President Macron went as far as suggesting a new proposal to remove the expiration dates of key provisions of the JCPOA and add to it plans to counter the regime’s missile program and destructive meddling in other countries. The prevailing truth is the fact that so far the regime has shown no sign of intent to abandon its destructive policies on these issues.

    On the other hand, critics of the JCPOA underline two points: Firstly, their emphasis is on the deal’s flaws which even the Europeans acknowledge. Secondly, they point to the regime’s worrisome behaviour in the period after the JCPOA took effect in areas such as its missile program and increased meddling in the region, which, interestingly, is also acknowledged by the Europeans. But, to overcome these common concerns they end up with a different conclusion; one that rejects the JCPOA. They reason that, given that the regime cannot be trusted, the JCPOA with these flaws would not prevent the regime from obtaining a nuclear bomb. In view of the North Korean experience in 1990s this is not too farfetched an argument. This is especially true in light of the fact that the Iranian regime’s initial goal for starting a nuclear program was to build a bomb and that all indications were that contrary to Hassan Rouhani’s claim at the time when he headed Tehran’s nuclear negotiating team, they were not stopped in 2003. Rouhani admitted later in his memoires that he had deceived the West when he was the chief negotiator.

    Following the adoption of the JCPOA, the Iranian Resistance announced that as far as the Iranian regime was concerned, its decision to accept the terms of the deal were tantamount to a retreat, imposed on it. The regime wanted the bomb as soon as possible without any hitch but the growing pressures of sanctions and fear of a possible uprising forced the regime to give in.

    At the time, Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said, “Circumventing the six UN Security Council resolutions and coming up with an unsigned agreement that is not internationally bounding as a treaty would neither block the mullahs’ path to deception nor their access to the nuclear bomb.”

    “Had the P5+1 been more decisive, the Iranian regime would have had no way but to fully retreat and permanently give up its efforts to acquire the nuclear bomb. Specifically, it would have halted all uranium enrichment and shut down its bomb-making projects.”

    “The P5+1 should now insist on evicting the regime from the Middle East and prevent its interferences in the region. This is a fundamental principle that needs to be included in any agreement, otherwise any country in this tumultuous region would have the right to demand all the concessions given to the clerical regime. This would only result in further catastrophic escalation of the nuclear arms race in this part of the world.”

    “Another important point is the United Nations’ strict monitoring of the cash poured into the regime’s pockets so that they would be spent on the Iranian people’s urgent needs, especially to pay for the unpaid meager salaries of workers, teachers and nurses and provision of food and medicine for the population. Otherwise, Khamenei, within the framework of the policy of export of terrorism and fundamentalism, would continue sending the money to Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon and before all, fill the pockets of the IRGC (the Iranian Regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps) forces.”

    Mrs. Rajavi further stressed, “Indeed, any agreement that does not observe and consider the Iranian people’s human rights would only embolden the regime in its relentless suppression and executions and trample the nation’s rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Charter.”

    The righteousness of the Iranian Resistance’s position has now been proven after almost three years. The mullahs’ nuclear program must be abolished in its entirety. This should have been done many years ago.

    After three years, the regime’s behavior has gotten worse in all areas. This is reflected before anything in the suppression of the Iranian people. The Western governments’ silence regarding the widespread protests in Iran is shameful. At least 15 of those detained during the protests which began at the turn of the year have been tortured to death but the West continues to remain silent. This can only be explained within the context of greed for some trade contracts.

    All advocates of the policy of appeasing the regime are responsible for the current crisis and its consequences, whatever the outcome may be. Those who were competing against one another for more share of contracts with the regime, indeed with the IRGC, while closing their eyes to the suppression of the Iranian people and the regime’s destructive policies in the region, must be held to account for their role in the present crisis.

    It is now time to pay heed to the Iranian people’s demands. The people have shown in their protests that they want the regime to go. The international community must stand by the Iranian people and their Resistance. It is now time to put talk aside and take action. The benchmarks are clear.

    Mrs. Rajavi in a message to the convention of Iranian-Americans in Washington on May 5 said, “The experience of the past three years has confirmed that the mullahs took advantage of the concessions in the JCPOA to suppress the people of Iran and massacre the people of Syria. As such, we emphatically demand that Western countries adopt a policy that would eliminate the entire infrastructure of the regime’s nuclear program and, through unconditional inspections, prevent, once and for all, the regime from engaging in any nuclear-related activity, testing or research, including enrichment. Dismantling the regime’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, expelling the Revolutionary Guards from other countries in the region, and compelling the regime to stop torture and execution should be addressed in a holistic approach. Western countries must not ignore any of these aspects.”

    In order to secure the achievement of all these demands, the most stringent financial sanctions must be adopted immediately and the regime’s ties with international systems must be cut off. The regime is far too weak to stand against the will of the international community. Regrettably though, so far, it has not seen the necessary resolve on the part of the international community.

    Iran And Future Relations With Europe 

    Iran- EU

    By Heshmat Alavi

    Following the recent statement issued by U.S. President Donald Trump on the future of the Iran nuclear deal, technically dubbed as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the four conditions he raised on America’s continued cooperation with this already controversial pact, Tehran’s concerns are focusing on why the Europeans haven’t shown the regime’s desired negative response.

    Washington’s conditions include increasing inspections, ensuring “Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon,” eliminating all JCPOA expiration dates, and requiring Congress to adopt a bill incorporating Iran’s ballistic missile program into the pact.

    Some time ago I explained “How Iran Is Losing Europe,” receiving a variety of messages of agreement and more of harsh disagreement. Regarding the new developments that fall into this line of argument, one can analyze the true feelings of those ruling the Iranian regime through their media outlets.

    Tehran is extremely concerned that the U.S. government is reaching agreements with its European partners to stand their ground on these four conditions, leading to escalating restrictions for Iran.

    The semi-official Khorasan daily expresses Tehran’s concerns over why the EU’s responserefused to firmly reject Trump’s statement, describing the stance as “conservative.”

    “Negotiating the existing JCPOA is not in their agenda. However, instead of emphasizing on their previous positions, all parties are now talking of analyzing and making decisions regarding Trump’s conditions,” the piece reads in this regard.

    In a sign of the continuing internal factional dispute amongst Iran’s ruling factions, this article lashes at the bloc loyal to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

    “The fact that [the Europeans] consider this subject as assessable is an issue we must take into consideration in our calculations, and we must not have high hopes in the Europeans,” the article adds.

    There is increasing talk about the EU’s response to Trump’s statement and its conditions as a signal of Europe beginning an episode of increasing cooperation with the US in relation to the JCPOA, and similar agreements over Tehran’s slate of belligerences.

    “It appears that [French President Emmanuelle] Macron has agreed with Trump to launch talks about Iran’s ballistic missile program in return for the U.S. remaining loyal to the JCPOA. Trump raising the issue of ballistic missile negotiations is without a doubt involving France and Europe into an already lost faceoff,” according to the semi-official KhabarOnline website.

    For those unfamiliar with the language and culture of Iran’s state-backed media outlets, this is actually an indication of Tehran’s weakness and deep concerns, and not a signal of readiness for further talks.

    Describing the U.S. President’s four demands as “Trump’s pseudo ultimatum to Europe on the JCPOA,” the semi-official Iranian Diplomacywebsite considers this stance as in line with the European Union and indicates its hope of the Green Continent having more influence on Washington for the unpredictable future.

    “The recent remarks and stance heard from Trump and senior U.S. officials proves that behind the curtains the Europeans are playing an important role in convincing Trump to once again waive sanctions for another four months,” the text reads in part.

    There are also voices heard inside Iran who have lost complete hope of Europe providing any life rope whatsoever to safeguard the JCPOA in the near future and beyond.

    “The EU today is facing a variety of dilemmas and internal crises, lacking the necessary organization to stand against various decisions made by Washington, including in regards to the JCPOA,” reads a piece in the semi-official Khabar Onewebsite.

    From Tehran’s perspective, the conditions set by Trump are completely unacceptable and a prelude to place pressure Europe to adopt a stronger position in regards to Iran’s ballistic missile program, meddling in the Middle East and stoking terrorism.

    Speaking of Iran’s bellicosity, relations with Germany is witnessing a twist recently. Following an investigation by the country’s domestic intelligence agency, German authorities on Tuesday raided the homes and offices of 10 suspected Iranian spies, Reuters reported citing prosecutors.

    Considering the recent protests rocking the very pillars of this regime and raising many eyebrows, Iran’s human rights dossier will most likely remain under a constant international spotlight that may actually become the most dangerous source of Tehran’s brewing troubles in the near future.

    Washington, with Trump’s latest demands, will most likely seek to transform the JCPOA into a meaningless platform for Iran, and yet a medium to increase its pressures and conditions. With Europe left in a pickle to decide between Washington and Tehran, it doesn’t need a political or economic expert to comprehend how bleak the future looks for the Iranian regime.

    This is exactly why Iran’s media outlets, known as a good source into the mentality of Iran’s ruling elite, consider the EU’s new soft approach vis-à-vis Trump’s statement a step in undermining the JCPOA altogether and imposing further obligations to degrade Iran’s positions, especially in the Middle East and for its already dwindling and dismal social base.

    This is sensed vividly in the words of Abdolreza Faraji-rad, Iran’s former ambassador to Norway.

    “Following his discussions with other European leaders, Macron is deciding to both maintain his policy of safeguarding the JCPOA while launching talks regarding Iran’s ballistic missile program and this regime’s role in the region, all to gain U.S. content,” he explained in a radio interview.

    Iran is entering troubled 2018 waters, especially with the wave of protests promising to gain strength across the country. How the West, and especially Europe, will respond to the Iranian people’s efforts to realize meaningful change and the regime’s human rights violations, is a major issue.

    Death of Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) or the next cups of poison? 

    Death of Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) or the next cups of poison

    By Masoud Dalvand

    On 12 January, Donald Tramp extended the Iran deal or JCPOA, for another 120 days.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump gave the Iran nuclear deal a final reprieve on Friday but warned European allies and Congress they had to work with him to fix ”the disastrous flaws” in the pact or face a U.S. exit.

    Is this an achievement for the mullahs’ dictatorship?

    Looking at the successive news that was released at the same time as the announcement of this, the response appears; deadly news for the Iranian regime, including:

    The US officials have said, Tramp has renewed with dissatisfaction.

    -Trump insists this is the “last time” to extend the deal.

    He said: “Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said in a statement. “Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.”(Reuters 12 January)

    US Treasury Department boycotted 14 agencies and other brokers include chief judge of Iran regime. The statement has said: Treasury Sanctions Individuals and Entities for Human Rights Abuses and Censorship in Iran, and Support to Sanctioned Weapons Proliferators.

    Mullah Sadegh Larijani, the head of the judiciary, the head of the Gohardasht Prison, The cybercrime council for censorship, the IRGC cybersecurity, are on the sanctions list.

    At the same time, the United Nations has said that the regime has violated Yemen’s arms embargo.

    The United States also emphasized that the deal should include a missile program and regional intervention of the Iranian regime. The issue that the European governments have come up with and even added human rights violations. (Of course they say that these are out of the JCPOA, but they should be investigated)

    Therefore, it is clear that the extension of this time of JCPOA,(in addition to new sanctions), only for the regime has the result to be forced, to retreat into missile projects, regional interventions and human rights abuses. Namely, in fear of death (abolition of JCPOA), It must commit to suicide (drinking the next poison)!

    And, of course, the regime couldn’t does any maneuver or deception this time (the line that the regime was trying to advance and delay) because the president of the United States has emphasized “last time” to extend the deal.

    That is, until the next 120 days, or the next poison, or death!

    Trump Administration, Regime Change in Iran and NCRI 

     By INU Staff

    INU – After many years of the US attempting to appease the Iranian regime, American commitment to economic sanctions has been effectively reestablished, and even expanded, with President Trump’s announcement on October 13 that his administration would be targeting the entirety of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps for its support of global terrorism and its crimes against the Iranian people.

    Trump has said that the Iranian people are the “longest suffering victims” of the Iranian regime. He and his foreign policy advisors have clarified that the emerging Iran strategy recognizes the difference between the government of the Islamic Republic and the people of Iran.

    Many believe that the Trump administration sees a need for regime change and is willing to pursue this goal. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that US policy in the Middle East should include the promotion of those domestic voices in Iran who support transitioning its government from its current dictatorship to a Democracy. Still, Tillerson did not specify who those voices are, although the resistance against the Islamic Republic is a known quantity.

    The US has been slow to change its stance regarding the resistance movement, even though many American lawmakers have expressed support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its main constituent group the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, or MEK in Persian).

    On both sides of the Atlantic, the NCRI and MEK have widespread support among western politicians, who have given their support to the resistance’s agenda, including human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, gender equality and a non-nuclear Iran, as has been articulated in the 10 point plan of the NCRI President, Maryam Rajavi. The NCRI and MEK enjoy bipartisan support in Washington, as well as across Europe and in the Islamic world.

    The main opposition against the Iranian theocracy was listed as a terrorist organization by the US State Department until 2012. However, it was included on that list because of the conciliatory nature of Iran strategy that was well established by 1997, when the MEK was given its false terrorist designation. The Clinton administration was hoping for rapprochement with the regime. It was willing to eliminate any possibility of cooperation with the MEK or NCRI as a precondition for relevant talks. On May 8, 2008, the Wall street Journal quoted several diplomats who were involved in the nuclear talks with Iran, saying, “Iranian officials have urged suppression of the MEK in negotiations with Western governments over Tehran’s nuclear program and other issues.”

    The MEK and NCRI resorted to an unprecedented legal and political campaign and was able to show that it is a legitimate resistance with support inside of Iran and among the Diaspora. It was de-listed by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.

    The Trump administration believes that the entire notion of moderates within the Iranian regime is a fantasy. The first term in office of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani oversaw a surge in executions and a severe crackdown on dissents throughout the country. Additionally, the UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, Asma Jahangir, confirmed this in her October 25 report to the UN General Assembly. She said that while there are hopeful signs in the form of Rouhani’s statements, the actual human rights conditions in the Islamic Republic have only deteriorated.

    There has been a reemergence of Iranian propaganda targeting the MEK, NCRI and their affiliates. It is believed that this propaganda by Tehran and its lobby will intensify as the US continues to pursue an assertive strategy with regard to the Islamic Republic. As well, MEK, NCRI activism, particularly inside of Iran, has seen a significant upswing in recent months. In fact, there has been increased activism regarding the the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, an overwhelming majority of them MEK supporters, during the summer of 1988.

    The US has adopted a new Iran policy, and the Trump administration must build countermeasures to disinformation in its emerging Iran policy. The White House may soon declare itself an ally to the NCRI and a supporter of the cause of domestically-driven regime change in Iran.
