In a grand gathering in Tirana, Albania, on the occasion of the Persian New Year, the Iranian Resistance’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi wished that the New Year would be the year of breaking the chains of the religious fascism ruling Iran. Today marked the beginning of the Iranian New Year or Nowrouz that starts with the arrival of spring. Mrs. Rajavi wished the looming of the spring of freedom and national sovereignty, the failure of the mullahs’ belligerence in the region, and the year of emancipation of the defenseless people of Syria from the clutches of the clerical regime ruling Iran.
All dictators are known to oppress their opponents, lie to society about their policies, and resort to any crime necessary to remain in power. Hitler believed a lie should be preposterous to make it believable.
As the world marks International Women’s Day on March 8th, Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani has recently been making remarks about women’s rights (!) in an attempt to cloak his portion of the Iranian regime’s misogynist report card.
Iran’s destructive role across the Middle East has become common knowledge and crystal clear for all. During the past two decades, especially, the presence of this regime’s proxy militias and affiliated Shiite groups has been considered an overt secret. Yet the question is how has Iran been able to dispatch so many fighters, and on a constant basis, to various flashpoint scenes in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.
The Iranian Mujahedin or the People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) is the principle opposition group to the Iranian regime. The PMOI has been struggling to establish freedom and democracy in Iran for the past 51 years. The PMOI was founded in 1965 by three Muslim university graduates and sought to replace the Shah’s dictatorship with a representative government that respects human rights. Several members of the PMOI were arrested and executed during shah dictatorship for the efforts to bring freedom and democracy to Iran.
On January 19, 2017 John Kerry
secretary of state in his farewell remarks in the C Street Lobby, regarding the relocation of MEK members mentioned the following words.
“…And one of the things that I am very proud of is the effort we made – I remember going to hearing after hearing, and you remember all those folks you’d see up there in those yellow jackets representing the Mujahedin-e Khalq – MEK as we’ve known them – and we got 3,000 of them out of Camp Liberty and to places where they are safe and their lives are saved from being attacked regularly, as they were. I thank Jonathan Winer, our special envoy, and others for that kind of effort. It’s been enormous.”

The Syrian people’s six-year uprising for freedom from decades of dictatorship in their country, now evolving into a regional war and global crisis, is proof of two undeniable facts:
First, proving the international community’s inaction and a failed Western policy in the face of Middle East challenges.
Second, devious intentions pursued by Iran, as the root of all current unrests and crises engulfing the region.
