Deporting & separating from son by Norway, lashing in Iran by mullah

23.09.2017
By Zohair Ahmad

Leila Bayat, 36 was deported from Norway, Tuesday she received 80 lashes in Iran.
Before she arrived in Norway, Leila Bayat received a sentence of 80 lashes for alcohol consumption. The Norwegian authorities did not believe her and sent her back to Iran, Tuesday the sentence was completed and she received the 80 lashes.
Leila Bayat sentenced to 80 lashes for drinking alcoholic beverages

Leila Bayat came to Norway in 2009 together with her son Mani, she told the authorities that if she was to be sent back she would be flogged, UNE thought that the sentence was fabricated and decided it was safe to send her back to Iran, they assumed she had lied about the sentence and that no harm would come to her if she was to be sent home to Iran. 
On March 8th this year she was deported, after 8  years in Norway she was sent back alone, her son got his family reunion with his father in Steinkjer, Norway approved and was allowed to stay. 
Through Skype, Leila tells us that she is not ok and she added that her sentence of 80 lashes was completed on Tuesday. Leila told her friend that there were two women in the room with her one was flogging her and the other woman counted the lashes given. She added that it was horrible and that she was not feeling well at this point, the flogging was very painful and she told her friend that she was unable to stand on her feet afterward. 
Bayat received the sentence of 80 lashes after she broke the Sharia law by drinking alcohol. 
Leila is still unable to walk or sit on Wednesday due to the damage from the flogging. 
The experts agree that this case is a grave breach of international human rights and that the Norwegian authorities have violated the human rights act. There is no doubt in Amnesty that this conduct by Iran is no less than torture. 
Gerhard Folkvord who is a counselor in Amnesty claims that this could happen because of the Norwegian authorities, as a rule, treat all asylum seekers as liers. This has been the political guideline from the Norwegian government in recent years.
 

 Bayat's lawyer in Oslo, Preben Kløvfjell, told TV2 that he had been in contact with her several times on Wednesday she told him that she is going through a tough time right now but she wants this to be known in Norway. He is underlining the fact that the deportation of Bayat is a breach of international law. He adds that the Norwegian authorities have broken the international protection of refugees law and that they have also broken the human rights charter article 3 that gives a person protection from deportation to an area where they can be exposed to human rights violations. According to Bayat’s statement, Norwegian authorities have broken both laws by deporting her. Bayat’s lawyer thinks that this breaches of international law weaken the UNE’s deportation sentence considerably. He adds that there is a workgroup on the case, working to bring her back to Norway. 
Amir Moghadam, professor in medicine at Oslo University, and director of Iran Human Rights has no doubt about what damage that the flogging has done to Bayat’s body, he says that there is no doubt that she, in fact, have been flogged and the muscular damage and the damage to internal organs can be severe, also the humiliation can give psychological damage that can last for several years. DR. Moghadam claims that the Norwegian authorities have failed in this case.

The Iranian regime is more isolated than ever, and they know it

22.09.2017
By Zohair Ahmad
«The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you have heard the last of it believe me. 
It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction. It is time for the regime to free all Americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained, and above all, Iran’s government must stop supporting terrorists, begin serving its own people and respect the sovereign rights of it’s neighbours. The entire world understands  that the good people of Iran want change and other than the wast military power of the United States that Irans people are what their leaders fear the most» 


This was the most important points in Trump’s speech in UN on 19 September 2017. He is giving us pointers on what his policy against the Iranian regime will look like. 
This new approach against the regime is making it more isolated than ever before. Trump states that the regime fears its own people and that is the truth, the regime is aware of that only 4% of the Iranian people support the regime, 96% want a regime change. 
The regime knows that their continuance of rule all depends on the JCPOA so they are clinging on to it, tooth and nail. The regime knows that if the nuclear deal is not ratified, the days of their regime are numbered. The regime is also aware of that the power of the Iranian resistance is the only opposition strong enough to topple the clerical regime. The regime has been feeling the discontent of the people for a long time now and the more isolated the regime get’s the more likely it is that the people of Iran will prevail and be victorious against the regime.
Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) welcomed President Trump’s remarks and characterized them as the first testimony by a US President over the past 38 years to underscore the need for regime change in Iran by the Iranian people, a cause that has been the declared policy of the Iranian Resistance for the past 36 years.

The fear of the regime is manifesting itself as more harassment, more laws against women, more political prisoners, more executions in public and above all much more violations on basic human rights. These are all issues that the world leaders must confront the regime about, let the regime know that violations of human rights will get hem even more isolated. The days of the regime is over and it is time for the people of Iran to get their long deserved freedom and to bring democracy to the Iranian people. 

One other just as important point is that when the clerical regime is gone there will be peace in the middle east, at last, it is a well-known fact that the only reason for Assad to be holding on to power in Syria is the support he gets from Iran regime. The slaughter of Sunni Muslims in Iraq will also come to an end when the regime in Iran is removed from power. So the benefits of a regime change in Iran is fundamental and it is most desirable for the Iranian people and for people in the entire region. 
The ten point plan for a future Iran created by the Iranian resistance will ensure that there will be no need for a nuclear deal because their tenth point clearly states that under the rule of the NCRI Iran will be nuclear-free.

Why is the Iranian regime so scared of UN inspectors?

14.9.2017
By Zohair Ahmad
One of the main reasons for the Iran regimes fear of inspectors is mostly all their hidden missile facilities where they develop ballistic missiles big enough to carry a nuclear warhead. Countries in the west are forbidden to provide missile technology to Iran, but North Korea is not and they are sharing their discoveries with the Iranian regime. The regimes fear of the UN became evident under US ambassador to UN, Nikki Haley’s visit to Vienna. What is the regime hiding that they are so worried about?

 It is no secret that the regime has been working overtime to achieve a workable ballistic missile with the capability to carry a nuclear head. The concern must be that when the nuclear deal expires Iran will have a nuclear bomb the very next day. A major concern in this matter must be, what is the regime so afraid that the world can find out if they inspect the military compounds? 
Irans fear of inspectors have grown out of proportions after the Obama appeasement policy period has come and gone, Trump has no intention to appease the Iranian regime. The only thing Trump wish to show the Iranian regime is who is the new top dog on the block.
The Iranian lobby is working overtime in their effort to persuade Trump that if he cancels the nuclear deal he will have a new war on his hands in the middle east. This is far from the truth if Trump cancels the JCPOA he must put enormous sanctions on Iran which will, on the other hand, strangle the Iranian money flow into Syria, Yemen and Iraq. 
If Iran refuses inspectors to enter their military facilities the whole world will be wondering what the regime has to hide? And it will certainly push Trump in the direction of canceling the nuclear deal. 
 Trump must never release the pressure on the regime, only by holding them under pressure can we get a necessary regime change in Iran and a regime change would be the only way to secure peace and freedom to the Iranian people and the rest of the region. The NCRI is the only option for a nuclear free Iran, the Iranian resistance has in their ten point plan for future Iran that under their rule Iran will be nuclear free. So if Trump wants Iran to be nuclear free he must support the Iranian resistance demand of a regime change. 
Long live the Iranian resistance, may you prevail in our lifetime.

Iranians gather in New York to protest Rouhani’s presence in the UN General Assembly

14,09.17
By Zohair Ahmad

For several years now, Iranians community in the USA and their supporters have held rallies in front of UN to Protest the conduct of the Iranian regime. This year is no different. The rally this year will take place on September 20th outside the UN headquarters. This year a photo exhibition commemorating the anniversary of the 1988 Massacre will be on display. 
Present at the rally this year will be exile-Iranians and their supporters which will be joined by many Syrians who are protesting IRGC presence in Syria. The main slogan in this rally will be «No2Rouhani». but also «Iran out of Syria» the call for a regime change in Iran is also important issues for this rally. 
In this rally, thousands of Iranian-American community members will join human rights activists and prominent civil and political leaders to condemn unabated executions in Iran. We have seen under Rouhanis tenure that in fact the number of executions are not unabated but are in fact increasing. More than 3000 executed, in July alone at least 101 Iranians executed. So far this year 408 people have been executed according to official numbers but the actual amount of executions might be higher due to secret executions. It is therefore of utmost importance that we protest this grave violation of human rights that is taking place at the hands of the Iranian regime. It is a known fact that Rouhani represents a regime responsible for the execution of 30 000 political prisoners in 1988, and the UN must recognize this and uninvite him to the UN assembly. Iranians demand the UN not to allow a perpetrator of the 1988 massacre of Iranian political prisoners access to the UN assembly.
Protest of Iranian youth tribute the 1988 massacre victims

One other issue important in this rally is the urgent matter of expelling the Iranian regimes forces IRGC out of Syria, at this rally the demand will be to remove all Iranian presence in Syria so that the Syrian people will get their freedom. It is a known fact that without the support of the terrorist group IRGC, Assad would have lost power many years ago. Rouhani is the main supporter of dictator Assad in Syria, and the only way to be able to end the conflict in Syria will be to expel Iran from the whole region.One of the most hideous crimes committed in Syria by IRGC was the Aleppo massacre in 2016. Therefore the demand is to expel Iran from Syria. 

We demand the UN, judge Rouhani by his deeds and not by his words for he has no problem to lie if that gives him an advantage. Look at how he is approving torture in prisons, not objecting to executions, he was, in fact, the very man that expressed the wish for public executions after Friday prayers. Rouhani was one of the key players behind the mass executions of political prisoners in Iran in 1988. 
Iranian Americans will in this Rally emphasize that regime change in Iran is imperative and achievable, not by means of outside military interference, but from Iran’s own people and their organized resistance, which is fully prepared to facilitate that change. Please keep speaking out for the political prisoners in their 40th day of hunger strike. We must show them they are not forgotten. 
You are welcomed to join.

Political prisoners message from Gohardasht:"We can never die and not surrender"

After more than 40 days on hunger strike, the political prisoner's lives are in grave danger due to lack of attention from the prison authorities. The prisoners have been ignored and neglected. But at the same time, the prisoners on hunger strike have gained enormous support around the world.  The whole hunger strike started as a protest against the inhumane conditions in the prison. The prisoners have gained support from political prisoners across Iran. And political leaders in Europe have become aware of the grave situation the political prisoners in Iran live under. The human rights violations these prisoners suffer every single day is abuse at best but the prisoners are often subjects to the torture of both physical and mental character. One of the prisoners is Saeed Masouri, currently serving a life sentence in prison he has been in jail for the last 17 years. He wrote a letter where he refers to the inhumane treatment of political prisoners. 



                                                           
                                                             
"We can never die and not surrender"

"We do not recognize your hunger strike" (a statement by Ja'fari Dolatabadi):
"You recognized the lawless trial ?! Do you recognize the death sentence made in 10 minutes ?! Did you recognize 2 years of solitary confinement?
Have you been kept inside a cage? Not even have the name of the prisoner registered in any prison computer?

Did you recognize the news boycott in all media of imprisonments and condemnations?

We never recognize the cruelty and punishment of prisoners, and now that we have been struggling for 30 days, even though we have lost most of our physical capacity ...., We can never die and never give up. "

"Political prisoner Saeed Masoori - Hall of Detention of Four Gohardasht Prison in Karaj - Monday, Sept. 6, 1396". ( The full text of the letter)

All the while the regime does not recognize the hunger strikers. The regime pretends as if they do not exist. This is the only response we can expect from this regime of tyrants, they know nothing else than to suppress and torture the Iranian people whether they are on the streets or in prisons across Iran. And the Iranian regime is notorious for imprisoning human rights activists, politicians from the opposition, and journalists. The regime holds a terrible record when it comes to dealing with the political opposition, over the years the Clerical regime has murdered more than 120 000 politicians from the Iranian resistance.  And it is evident that the regime will continue to suppress political prisoners in every prison across the country.   The best you can do for the prisoners on hunger strike will be to put pressure on the regime to meet the demands of the prisoners.
Our message to all political prisoners in Iran:
stay true to your heart,
stay strong,
and never give up,

 we stand beside you.
