  • Speaker, you may not know it, but there is a group that, like the United States, thinks the Supreme Leader of Iran needs to go. They are a group of Iranians called the MEK. They want their countrymen to be free from the oppressive regime that has ruled with an iron fist since 1979. But the MEK is locked up in a prison-like camp in Iraq. 112 of its members have been killed.
  • How we came to this point is a story worth telling. After the Iranian revolution, the MEK opposed the Supreme Leader. So the newly installed Islamic regime systematically arrested and executed members of the MEK. The MEK fled and found refuge in Iraq. They built a home in the middle of the desert in a place called Camp Ashraf. In August 2002, the MEK disclosed two previously unknown nuclear facilities in Iran.

U.S. Cannot Remain Indifferent on Human Rights Violations in Iran

Intensifying crackdowns and an increasing number of public executions, acid attacks on women’s faces, and the hanging of 26-year old Reyhaneh Jabbari for the sole reason of defending her dignity, have heightened awareness among human rights circles and the international community of the scope of crimes committed by the mullahs ruling Iran. Of course, what is published these days in the press and media outlets is just the tip of the iceberg. Public opinion remains unaware of some aspects of the crimes committed in prisons and detention facilities against dissidents –- especially women –- by the fundamentalist Iranian regime. The mullahs’ regime, stuck in a quagmire of internal and international crises, has no choice but to crack down on dissent inside Iran and take measures against opposition members abroad.

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
