1988 Massacre: Speech by Behrooz Omid on the 1988 massacre of the political prisoners in Iran, August 25
Behrouz Omid: Amnesty International and others considered 1988 massacre as a crimes against humanity and many others consider it as the biggest crime after the World War II.
Ladies and gentlemen, my compatriots in Iran, I greet you all On behalf of the Iranian associations in Norway.
Regarding the massacre of 1988, Khomeini’s then successor said, “In a few days thousands were executed” and “the people detest even the name of the Islamic republic and the Velayat-e faqih.”
Amnesty International and others considered it as crimes against humanity and many others consider it as the biggest crime after the World War II.
30,000 were martyred but they never gave up. This regime continues to be the number one executioner per capita in the world. This has been the habit of the mullahs’ regime to try to make up for its strategic failure by attacking the people of Iran.
The massacre of 1988 was after Khomeini was forced to end the war with Iraq which he had promised to continue.
We remember the time that Khomeini said that the main enemy is neither Russia nor America nor Israel or Britain but the PMOI which is sitting in Tehran and they are worse than the infidels.
Now the question is what the international community should do. A foreign war will not lead to democracy, but western countries’ dialogue, appeasement, and cooperation with this regime will also be counterproductive, as we’ve seen over the past years. We, at the association of the Iranian, have always supported the third option offered by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi. And we call on the government of Norway to support the Iranian people and also to boycott the Iranian regime and support the Iranian people’s uprising, including my fellow countrymen in the province of Khuzestan.
We also call on for shutting down the mullahs’ regime’s embassy and not ignoring the suffering of the people of Iran.
I thank you all.
