The religious dictatorship ruling Iran, the worst enemy of God

Iftar Gathering Paris May 19, 2018

On the advent of the Holy Month of Ramadan, on Saturday, May 19, 2018 a number of Muslim dignitaries from the Arab nations of Jordan, Syria, Algeria, and Yemen and the Muslim community of France took part in an Iftar (break of fast) gathering entitled, “Message of Islam: Peace and Freedom,” at Auvers-sur-Oise in Paris.
Keynote speaker was Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the NCRI President-elect and she described the religious dictatorship ruling Iran as the worst enemy of God and His people for inflicting oppression and injustice on people under the name of God and Islam. She said the history of Islam has never seen any rulers more corrupt and criminal than the mullahs.

She wished this month to be a month of emancipation, peace and solidarity for the world, and the nations of the Middle East, particularly the brother nation of Syria, be relieved from war, slaughter, devastation and the evil reign of the Iranian regime.

The NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi 
“Today, the first step in solving the Syrian problem is evicting the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from that country,” Maryam Rajavi added. “Elimination of the Iranian regime’s terrorism and nuclear threat is only possible by getting rid of the entire regime. Peace, democracy, security, and stability in the Middle East necessarily depend on ending the rule of religious dictatorship and fascism in Iran.”

The message of Iran uprising and the ultimatum of Trump

By start of new wave of Iranian people uprising in 142 cities, all political researchers are following the new changes in political stage and in the middle east
this article by @shahriarkia in @DailyCaller  is the best for getting a true view of what is going on in the next months

Regime Change Is Coming In Iran

As the ultimatum begins in regards to demands made by U.S. President Donald Trump to make a final decision on the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), we are a witnessing a wave of tensions and grave concerns inside the Iranian regime.

The parallel nature of this ultimatum with the nationwide uprising aiming to overthrow the Iranian regime, beginning on December 28 and continuing to this day, is bound to place Tehran before a major impasse.
In contrast to previous encounters when Tehran considered such challenges as bluffs, this time around Iranian regime officials are revealing their fears and taking these threats “very seriously.”
President Trump also upped the ante in his stand-off with Iran, vowing US support for street protests against Tehran’s clerical regime.
“America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom,” he declared.
The question is what solutions lay before Tehran? Can the regime surpass this crisis? How will the international community support the nations of Iran and the entire region in realizing true and lasting peace?

The future of Iran's uprising ,Concerns and Reactions

Iran's Future, In Its Own Words
By +Heshmat Alavi 

On the very sensitive subject of how Iran plans to confront ongoing protests, described by some as an uprising, all the while attempting to resolve the very issues engulfing the ruling regime, there are critical concerns raising from various voices within.
And considering U.S. President Donald Trump's powerful State of the Union message, underscoring "America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom," the stakes at hand in the months ahead for Tehran are extremely high.
Iran uprising 2018
Iran's state-linked media are a good source, shedding significant and noteworthy light on the seemingly obscure nature of the Iranian regime.

The common tone heard in all such messages is hopelessness. Those loyal to the faction of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei see the solution in sacking the regime's president, Hassan Rouhani.
Arguments from the other side of the aisle in Tehran's politics rely on warning the Khamenei camp that such a scenario will not end the regime's escalating quandaries. This is only the beginning and there is no stopping this train, adding the entirety of this regime is in the crosshairs.
There are those who believe dark days await those sitting on the throne in Tehran, speaking of future uprising waves. Providing no solutions, their words can mean nothing but succumbing to an inevitable downfall.
"Those who have continuously spread despair and anxiety through their platforms in state TV/radio and Friday prayers (in reference to the Khamenei camp) seek to portray Rouhani as incompetent. They issue and chant slogans of 'Death to Rouhani,' failing to answer the inescapable question of who after Rouhani. The answer is obvious: surpassing Rouhani means overcoming the government, reaching the very principle of our state, and finally surpassing the Islamic Republic itself," according to the Tadbir24 website, known for its affiliation to the Rouhani camp.
Interesting is how this piece considers Rouhani a synonym of the ruling state or at least the velayat-e faqih regime's last chance of survival, warning surpassing Rouhani is tantamount to the end of the clerical rule altogether.
Protesters in the streets, however, are crystal clear in their intentions and how they view the overall regime apparatus. Chanting "Death to Rouhani," "Death to Khamenei," and most interestingly, "Reformists, principalists, end of story," the Iranian people are demanding sweeping changes, accepting nothing short of regime change. This ends Iran's scheme of portraying a system established on two parties of conservatives and reformists.
Reformists, principalists, end of story

"The issue at hand is not limited to merely surpassing Rouhani. More grave ends may be awaiting us," according to the Jamaran website, explaining how these protests are raising eyebrows across the board amongst senior Iranian officials.
"Let us be frank: Taking into consideration the current heading, our destination will be nothing but all out ruin," according to the Asr Iran website, another Rouhani camp mouthpiece.
"The society has become a cradle for numerous crises that will surface in other forms (read in further nationwide protests)," according to Rouhani's economic advisor Hossein Zaghfar.
Warnings of other crises in the making and Iran anticipating further calamities are indicating signs of Iran's ruling elite understanding very well there the harsh reality of these protests' refusal to ever melt down.
To add insult to injury for the mullahs, the brave Iranian people are showing how the regime's crackdown machine no longer enjoys its previous teeth. For forty years the clerical regime has been relying on this entity to remain intact and in power. Scenes of protesters tearing down Khamenei posters and attacking sites of the Revolutionary Guards Basij paramilitary force, parallel to a wave of Basij members burning their IDs and credentials, speak for themselves.
Iran's protests will continue despite the fact that authorities killed 53 protesters and sent over 8,000 others behind bars, reports indicate.
The Iranian people are proving to the world over their objective of seeking regime change and establishing a republic based on democratic values rightfully cherished by most of today's countries.
History shows those movements presenting a specific alternative to the ruling state have a far better chance of realizing victory for the people. A leading entity with a publicized plan for the future and the courage that the populace can rely on.
The time has come to set aside the "reformist" mirage in Iran. For decades, Maryam Rajavi, as President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, is providing the sole, realistic alternative for Iran with a ten-point plan that enjoys the support of thousands of elected officials across the globe.
For starters, however, there are certain duties and obligations before the international community:
•Demand the release of all recently arrested protesters & political prisoners.
•Provide free internet access to all of Iran to allow activists report the truth about this regime, unfortunately, cloaked by mainstream media.
•Continue cutting off Iran's access to the global financial system. This will deprive the IRGC of the financial sources it desperately needs to continue its slate of domestic and foreign belligerence.
This is a noble launch of standing shoulder to shoulder with the Iranian people in "their courageous struggle for freedom."

Asma Jahangir’s dim report on the horrendous human rights violations in Iran

By Zohair Ahmad
Earlier this year the special rapporteur on  human rights in Iran, Asma Jahangir delivered a dim report about all the violations committed in Iran and for the first time she mentioned the 1988 massacre of political prisoners by the Iranian regime, she also called for the assembly of a committee to investigate the Massacre and to bring the culprits to justice. 

Asma Jahangir UN special rapporteur on  human rights in Iran

As expected the Iranian regime was trying to cover up their crimes by making accusations against the UN special rapporteur claiming that all crimes were fabricated and accused her of being totally political against Iran. He claimed that all minorities in Iran are allowed to have activities unless they are harmful to Iranian society ( read the clerical regime). He also added that “we denounce the appointment of the country-specific Rapporteur …., no country should change its way of life because of western dictation” Mr. Hassaninejad seem to forget that murder is not a way of life, it is a crime. And any regime that legitimate murder like the 1988 massacre must be prosecuted and sentenced in an independent court of law. 
In her report, Jahangir expressed concern over the rate of executions in Iran. Reports indicate that at least 435 persons have been executed in the first half of 2017. At least 4 of them was children. And 86 children are on death row, this is the known cases, the actual figure might be higher. 

Mrs. Jahangir asked for a withdrawal of the death sentence that has been issued to the imprisoned teacher Mr. Taheri, she also called for his unconditional release. 
The massacre of 1988 in Iran was addressed as a crime against humanity and the Rapporteur added that the persecution of ordinary Iranians based on their political beliefs is not a recent phenomenon but is well ingrained in the Iranian regime’s DNA. She added that in 1988 the regime slaughtered more than 30 000 political prisoners in just a couple of months, the regime buried the victims in mass graves and tried to cover up the crime, to hide it from the rest of the world. 
 The rapporteur stressed that despite the recent acknowledgments of the genocide from the highest- ranking members of the regime, the international community has still been largely silent and this silence must end.  Jahangir said that the families of the victims have a right to remedy, reparation and the right to know the truth about these events and the fate of their loved ones without reprisal.
She repeated her call upon the government to ensure that a thorough and independent investigation into these events is carried out. 
Jahangir also paid tribute to the many human rights defenders who have risked their lives to speak to her about the situation in Iran. 
We will join Jahangir in her call to bring justice to the victims of the 1988 Massacre and we would like to urge the UN to assemble an inquiry committee to investigate the massacre.
 We might never know the exact number of victims of this hideous crime but we will continue our quest to bring the culprits to trial. And to get justice for the victims of the 1988 massacre.
