Mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke at a rally by Iranians supporting the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) on Wednesday, the first day of the conference on the Middle East in Warsaw Poland.
Protesters voiced the desire of the Iranian people for establishment of freedom and democracy in Iran and also expressed their support for the NCRI led by Maryam Rajavi as the democratic alternative to the mullahs’ regime.
Text of speech by Mayor Rudy Giuliani on 13 February 2019 follows:
It’s a great honor for me to be here with you in order to make a very important point to all of the government officials that are meeting across the way in the stadium and it is really simple. In order to have peace and security in the Middle East, there has to be a major change in the theocratic dictatorship in Iran. It must end an end quickly in order to have peace and stability.
We want to make sure that in discussing how to bring peace and stability to the Middle East that there is a major focus on Iran and a real honest discussion of what has been going on there. Because I think there are people that ignore the terrible atrocities that the theocratic regime has been responsible for. And until that ends, it is very hard to figure out how to determine peace when a major nation is trying to undermine peace in Lebanon and Syria and Israel and the Arab stage. The greatest source of dissension is the Iranian regime and on purpose. So first of all, let me congratulate Madam Maryam Rajavi on the fine statement that she made and on the courageous leadership of these organizations that have done so much for the Iranian people to give them what they deserve, a free and a democratic Iran.
Let’s remind everyone that there is almost complete agreement that the Ayatollah’s regime is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, not only in the Middle East but in the world. The last time we met in June, it was revealed that four people were arrested and they were going to come to our gathering in Paris and they were going to attack with bombs that gathering.
One of the people arrested was an official of the Iranian government the reality is, this is a country now that you become so desperate if they are planning to do assassinations and bombings in France, in Germany, last year almost a year ago in Albania, a similar plot to kill those of us who were celebrating the new year. This is unheard of in a country that wants to be part of the group of nations. Someone asks me why Iran was not invited to this summit. I do not know why they were not invited, but usually do not invite murderers, killers, despots, dictators because he has no useful purpose they just going to lie to you.
