Opposition

By Amir Basiri

As President-elect Trump gets ready for office, he will be inheriting several foreign policy challenges from the outgoing Obama administration. One of the most complicated problems is Iran, a rogue state that is the leading state sponsor of terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism, a major human rights violator, and the only extremist entity that is enriching uranium with an international mandate.

Eight full years of appeasement by the Obama administration have done nothing to curb the Iranian regime's hostile behavior and evil intentions, and has resulted in exacerbated sectarianism across the Middle East region and the rise of extremist groups such as the Islamic State.

Maryam Rajavi urges referral of the clerical regime's dossier of crimes to the UN Security Council

The religious fascism ruling Iran has kicked off the New Year with merciless executions en mass.

The execution of at least 57 prisoners, mostly youths, has been registered in Iran since the beginning of 2017. Twenty of the victims were hanged on Saturday, January 14, 2017, in Gohardasht Prison, the Central Prison of Karaj, the Lakan Prison of Rasht, and the Dizelabad Prison of Kermanshah.

Nearly two dozen former top U.S. government officials have urged President-elect Donald Trump to work with Iran's opposition once in office, according to a letter obtained by Fox News.

A letter signed by 23 former officeholders calls on Trump to consult with the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The group has called for free elections and freedom of religion in Iran, as well as an end to what it calls Tehran's "religious dictatorship." 

NCRI - Warning of a conspiracy targeting the life of Mr. Ali Moezzi, the Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein and Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Iran Asma Jahangir, for urgent and effective action aimed at saving the life of this political prisoner.

Message of a group of Iranian political prisoners of Karaj Gohardasht prison in support of IranNTV telethon

Dear compatriots, freedom-loving people of Iran, supporters of Iranian resistance

We were informed that another telethon to promote and continue Simay-e-Azadi (IranNTV), the only true voice of oppressed and deprived people of Iran, is underway.

With the death of Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, one of the two pillars and key to the equilibrium of the religious fascism ruling Iran has collapsed and the regime in its entirety is approaching overthrow, said Maryam Rajavi.

Over the past 38 years, whether under Khomeini or afterwards, Rafsanjani played a critical role in suppression at home and export of terrorism abroad as well as in the quest to acquire nuclear weapons.

A New Year celebration was held on January 8, 2017, at Auvers-sur-Oise with political personalities and elected representatives of France as well as French supporters of the Iranian Resistance attending.
Maryam Rajavi addressed the ceremony and said:

Ladies and gentlemen,
Elected representatives and City Council officials,

NCRI - In a suspicious move on the morning of Wednesday, January 4, Iranian regime authorities suspiciously transferred political prisoner Ali Moezzi to an unknown location. The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and Special Rapporteur for the Human Rights Situation in Iran to take urgent action in this regard.
