Though the rival factions of the regime quest in the course of regime’s survival still the infightings grow each day. Javad Zarif ’s resignation is a window case of that.
Not a spontaneous event, Javad Zarif ’s resignation showcases serious crises within the regime. First, the hardliners restated in October 2018 that he is going to resign which he called a “rumor” on Jan. 14, 2019. But after the recent visit of Bashar al-Asad, in which Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Qods force was sitting on his chair, he actually resigned saying his position is of no credit anymore.
The Iranian regime, having suffered numerous setbacks at the hands of the Iranian Resistance, is left at an impasse where it has to abandon its hopes on the West’s policy of appeasement and place Soleimani in Javad Zarif’s seat.
Acting as a bogus face of moderation especially in the last five years, Javad Zarif has lured the Westerners towards appeasement policy, whitewashing regime’s domestic suppression, killings and looting as well as its export of war, terrorism, and fundamentalism abroad, to justify having business and trade with this regime.
As Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State commented on Javad Zarif ’s resignation: “ Javad Zarif and Rouhani are just front men for a corrupt religious mafia”.
Nowadays, no one can ignore the critical situation of the Iranian regime engulfed in internal and international crises.
Iranian resistance’s 40 years of steadfastness with the leadership of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, including its most recent activities in Paris and Warsaw, clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the regime’s sole viable alternative on its setbacks.
This alternative, with its core organization, the MEK/PMOI, being widely supported by the Iranian people, has left no option for the regime other than demonizing it and restoring to the industry of creating fake alternatives by its MOIS.
Having the regime’s and it’s alternative’s status in mind, the demands of the Iranian people and their resistance is announced best by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the NCRI, in her eight-point statement:
1. Recognition of the Iranian people’s right to resistance to overthrow the mullahs’ religious fascism and achieve freedom;
2. Designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) as a whole as terrorist entities by the U.S. State Department and the European Union;
3. Expulsion of the mullahs’ intelligence agents and mercenaries of the terrorist Qods Force from the U.S. and Europe;
4. Referring to the dossier of human rights violations in Iran to the UN Security Council after 65 United Nations censures;
5. Supporting the referral of the dossier of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran to international tribunals;
6. The ouster of the mullahs’ illegitimate regime from the UN and recognition of representation by the Iranian people’s just Resistance;
7. Decisive expulsion of Iran’s ruling religious fascism and its forces from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan;
8. Compelling the government of Iraq to pay compensation for the properties, equipment, arms, and camps the PMOI/MEK and the National Liberation Army of Iran (NLA), which had fully paid for them and whose evidentiary documents are available.
