London, 2 Aug - Mere hours before the Iranian Resistance’s annual Free Iran gathering began in Paris, the Iranian Regime’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, visited France in order to ban the gathering.
He failed. Over 100,000 people turned up to support the Iranian people’s call for freedom.
Three weeks later, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei sent his close relative and advisor, Kamal Kharrazi, who was involved in a failed 2003 plot to discredit the resistance group the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK/PMOI), to denounce the MEK/PMOI as "a terrorist group that murdered thousands of ordinary citizens in Iran".
This is, of course, a complete lie, but when your daily activities include running a terrorist training camp, murdering political prisoners, and illegally continuing work on your nuclear programme, what’s a little lying?
These are clear attempts to discredit the MEK/PMOI because the Regime doesn’t like that the MEK/PMOI is providing evidence about the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988. However, while the MEK/PMOI is well respected in France and around the world, the Regime should be grateful not to be on trial for crimes against humanity yet.
The Regime is angry because the PMOI/MEK and other resistance groups have called for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to blacklist for their clear links to terrorism, criticised the treatment of political prisoners along with Amnesty International and the UN, and called for the Regime to stop interfering in the affairs of other states in the Middle East.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has released a statement advising the French Government and the international community to see these fabricated claims are merely the actions of a despotic regime that is losing power.
The NCRI wrote: “According to reports obtained from inside the regime, the Supreme National Security Council of the mullahs discussed, in the presence of the Foreign and Intelligence Ministers (MOIS), new schemes to fabricate new files against PMOI and handing them over to the French judiciary.”
The NCRI detailed 12 instances in which the Regime has tried to pull off this same type of attack in the past.
The statement read: “The Iranian Resistance warns against new machinations and new conspiracies of the mullahs' crisis-ridden regime against the Iranian people and the Resistance, and calls on the French government and the French judiciary to be vigilant in staying firm in the face of these illegal acts and not to allow French judiciary to be once again instrumentalised by the religious fascism ruling Iran.”
The Iranian Regime is terrified of its own people and their organised, democratic, resistance and for good reason. Tides are turning on Iran and the appeasement policy is waning; soon the people will take control.
