Remarks made by a member of parliament in Iran and a close associate of Ali Khamenei has unveiled the clerical regime’s role in the recent developments in Yemen and its plans for exporting terrorism and fundamentalism which he referred to as plan to ‘unifying Muslims by Islamic Revolution.”
Alireza Zakani said: “A phenomenon more colossal than Lebanon is unfolding: Out of Yemen’s 20 provinces, 14 have fallen into the hands of revolutionaries and 90% of Sanaa has also fallen… With this, they have changed all the equations. After the victory in Yemen, surely it is Saudi Arabia’s turn since these two countries share a 2000 kilometer border. Besides, today, two million organized armed men are in Yemen… Today, the Islamic Revolution has taken over three Arabic capitals and in a while it will occupy Sanaa as well and the system to unify Muslims will become operational.” Continue reading →

Mullahs’ judiciary chief: Who is [the UN] Secretary-General to tell us stop the executions; these words are cheap, baseless and lack reasoning. Executions for corruption on earth is an internal matter.

The blockade, particularly denial of free access to medical care, imposed against Iranians in Camp Liberty has intensified since the Iranian regime’s Quds Force commander, Qassem Suleimani, and the head of its Supreme Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, met with Iraqi National Security Advisor Faleh Al-Fayad.
The Iranian Resistance renews calls on U.S. and U.N. to end this blockade.
On Wednesday, September 17, Iraqi intelligence agents obstructed the transfer of a Camp Liberty resident suffering from acute eye disease to the hospital in Baghdad. This stonewalling was justified by the ludicrous pretext that all patients may go only to one hospital.
The forces also did not allow nurses and interpreters for two other patients to accompany them. This measure makes things extremely hard for the patients and makes their dialogue with hospital physician and staff quite difficult and next to impossible. Continue reading →
At 1:20 a.m, on 18 September 2014, Taghi Abbasian, a resident of Camp Libertyand member of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOMEKI/) who was suffering from heart ailment and Motor Neurone Disease lost his life at the camp’s Iraqi clinic as a result of the anti-human medical siege on the camp and the lack of access to medical care.

A number of other patients who suffer from extremely serious diseases are in perilous situation due this criminal siege. Continue reading →
Justice prevailed; collaboration to demonize defeated; and legitimacy of Iranian Resistance proved
The suppression of Iranian Resistance distracted attentions from real terrorism and offered the best opportunity to the fundamentalists
Yesterday (Tuesday, September 16), the counterterrorism investigative judge of Paris Public Prosecutor’s Office ordered an end to prosecution of an infamous dossier that had been opened 14 years ago against the Iranian Resistance in a deal with the mullahs’ regime and permanently closed the file.
This dossier that started by the absurd allegation of terrorism and financing terrorism, in the absence of any evidence related to terrorism, was diverted to financial charges such as money laundering and fraud. Now, the French judicial system stipulates that there is no evidence for the financial allegations either. As such, despite pumping of false testimonies and fabricated information, the French judiciary confirmed the falseness of all charges that had been brought against the Iranian Resistance.
