I still hadn’t broken my fast when I heard the news of the death of my dear friend Taghi Abbasian in Camp Liberty. I’ll never forget that day. It was 18 September 2014, a grim day if ever there was one. I rushed to the camp’s clinic, my breakfast forgotten.

Camp Liberty, in the proximity of Baghdad’s International Airport, is where 2,800-odd Iranian refugees are living under prison-like conditions imposed by Iraqi forces loyal to former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the Iranian regime.

Maryam Rajavi: West must show resolve to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear bomb

Maryam Rajavi: West must show resolve if it is to stop Iranian regime from obtaining nuclear bomb

Cooperation with Iranian regime under pretense of fighting ISIS is not a solution but a recipe for disaster

Maryam Rajavi, Iranian Resistance President-elect Maryam Rajavi told a conference at the European Parliament on Wednesday, December 10: “The West needs to show resolve to stop Iran from obtaining the nuclear bomb.”

She stressed: “This nuclear program enjoys no legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people. According to government figures, 12 million Iranian people are suffering from hunger. They do not want this program to continue.”

Rajavi pointed to the increase in atrocities by the fundamentalists in Syria and Iraq, and asked: “Why are Western governments not standing up to a regime that is the ‘Godfather of ISIS’ with a record a hundred times worse than ISIS. How can European governments justify their silence vis-à-vis the regime’s suppression?  More regrettable is the fact that the regime’s lobby has been encouraged to promote collaboration with the Iranian regime as the solution to defeating ISIS. This is not a solution, but a recipe for disaster.” Continue reading Maryam Rajavi: West must show resolve to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear bomb

Maryam Rajavi: Rejecting ‘Islamic’ extremism requires confronting Iranian regime

Maryam Rajavi: The requisite for rejecting ‘Islamic’ extremism is to confront the Iranian regime and to support its alternative that is based on a democratic Islam

Neither ISIS and caliphate is Islam nor is the velayat-e faqih in Iran; neither the beheadings by ISIS is Islam nor is the splashing of acid on the faces of women in Iran.

The “caliphate” declared recently in Syria and Iraq has been ruling in Tehran for over 30 years now.

In a conference on Sunday, November 30, entitled “United Muslims against abuse of Islam by extremists”, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, warned that “any sort of cooperation and rapprochement with the Iranian regime under the pretext of fighting ISIS will solely result in the spread of this cancer in the region with the Muslim nations as its principal victims”. She added: “The crisis created by ISIS is the by-product of the conditions created by the regime of velayat-e faqih and its subordinate dictatorships by suppressing and implementing sectarianism in Iraq and Syria. For their part, the Western governments are responsible for the spread of this crisis due to their appeasement of the Iranian regime as the Godfather of fundamentalism and terrorism.” Continue reading Maryam Rajavi: Rejecting ‘Islamic’ extremism requires confronting Iranian regime

Iran Jeopardizes PMOI Refugees By Meddling in Camp Liberty Affairs

By

The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) has issued a press release concerning recent baseless misleading remarks by Iraq’s minister of Human Rights, Mahdi al-Bayati, after his meeting with the Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on Resettlement of Liberty Residents, Mrs Jane Holl-Lute.

The Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty, Iraq, designated as Protected Persons by the United Nations, were made promises by the United Nations and United States, in return for disarming.

The residents of the camp were originally in Camp Ashraf, but they were tricked into relocating to Camp Liberty by UN Special Representative Martin Kobler, who promised them safe passage and protection. Hundreds of the residents have been killed by Iraqi and Iranian operatives over the past few years in attacks inside their camps.

The Women Of Iran Can Bring About Change–If Not Suppressed

BYAmir Basiri

Mr. Basiri is an Iranian human rights activist and supporter of democratic regime change in Iran.

In Iran, a recent spate of acid attacks against women and the execution of a young woman charged with murdering her alleged rapist have turned the spotlight on the issue of women’s rights in the country. Although the events show a spike in human rights abuses against women in Iran, the discrimination against and suppression of Iranian women is nothing new and has been institutionalized in the very foundations and constitution of the clerical regime ruling the country.

But these events also betray the Iranian regime’s vain attempts at exuding power and frantic efforts to contain the numerous crises it is facing. It is also a reminder that women are the driving force behind the struggle against extremism and Islamic fundamentalism, and have the potential to bring about change in Iran and the region.

This is a reality that is fully understood by the Iranian regime, and explains why Tehran’s rulers resort to mounting up repression and pressure against the country’s female population whenever they feel the threat of social uprisings.
