This place is the so-called Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport where several thousand members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran are residing. Today, words like liberty and democracy have lost their meaning and become void, used by anyone for their own intention and personal interests.
Now, please come with me to Camp “Liberty”.

When you lose a loved one, you record all the love, memories and affiliation you had with them in your mind because you know that there will never be a next chance to talk or see her\him again. The only place that you can share those feelings of love, loss and sorrow, is when you visit their grave, which I believe all of you have once experienced this feeling; the feeling of comfort that you receive on your visit to their grave.
However, the Iranian regime has even deprived me of this feeling and opportunity and has severed this emotional connection with those whom we love and have lost. And unfortunately some of my friends and I have faced this bitter measure.

A true story of a rainy day in Camp Liberty
By Bahman Bakhshi,
It is 3 O’clock of a rainy afternoon in Camp Liberty, where Iranian dissidents live, just next to Baghdad international airport. Some call it Liberty Prison. It is one of the last cold days of winter. I have to wear my large wool socks and my knitted gloves to keep me warm in my very cold room. I also have my scarf around my neck. This scarf with its white lines means a lot to me. It is a souvenir of my fallen friend, Bijan. He was killed on a Christmas Eve when it did neither rain nor snow in Camp Liberty, but fatal rackets fell on us. I look through my window which unlike all windows in winter is not Steamy at all. That reminds me of my childhood, when I used to draw pictures with my finger on steamy windows. You find no steamy window in Camp Liberty. There is a logistic siege exerted on us by the security forces that control the camp.

It was February when I was finally released from Prison after some 10 years. During this time, I was only kept behind bars for my political dissent to the mullahs ruling my country. A day after my release, in order to pay my respects to my friends who had been executed by the Iranian regime, I rushed to the Behesht Zahra Cemetery in Tehran.
Yet what I saw before my eyes were broken tombstones, shattered by the repressive regimes’ elements. The regime’s forces had no mercy on them when they were alive, and after their death emptied their hatred and animosity on their lifeless graves.

We live in a tumultuous world, where unrest is waged in its every corner. In Africa, the radical Islamic group Boko Haram has been the source of much suffering in region it controls, promoting barbarity instead of Islamic values. In the Middle East, the viciousness reaches its peak, where criminals like Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Lebanese Hezbollah’s Leader Hassan Nasrallah, and former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki wreak havoc under the orders of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. The chaos they have left in their wake has given birth to a fundamentalist group, which in reality is the Sunni brand of the theocracy ruling Tehran, the terrorist activities of which span over the Middle East and reach out as far as France.

Speech by Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance at the Council of Europe, 26, January 2015
Three weeks after the tragedy that unfolded in Paris on January 7, the world remains in a state of shock and horror.
The massacre of journalists at their office desks, shooting defenseless civilians, executing the injured, taking hostages, terrorizing ordinary citizens, and justifying the commission of crimes against humanity under the banner of Islam have all wounded the conscience of the world. The spirit of Islam rejects these actions with utmost repugnance.This kind of terrorism and barbarism was first initiated, several years ago, by Khomeini’s fatwa to kill the writer, Salman Rushdi, and publishers and translators of his book.
