Iran MOIS & new wave of terrorism

Since the 1980s, the Iran MOIS has violently suppressed Iran regime’s opponents both at home and abroad.

As the regime’s officials have conceded, if the regime fails to inflame wars outside Iran’s borders, it would have to fight for survival within its borders. This is because external conflicts draw attention away from domestic crises.

This new wave of terrorism reflects the regime’s inability to deal with a nationwide uprising that began in late 2017 and has continued to date.

Accusing the PMOI for organizing the protests and strikes, Iran MOIS has set about a new phase of crackdown and terrorism.

In the summer of 2018, two cells of the Iran MOIS were arrested by law enforcement authorities in Europe. The first was an activated sleeper cell, arrested by Belgian police as they were traveling to Paris to detonate an explosive device at the Iranian gathering in Paris. Since a large crowd was attending this gathering, this proves that the Iran MOIS had intended to cause a massive casualty.

The second cell of the Iran MOIS was arrested in the United States for conducting Intelligence and reconnaissance operations on NCRI representatives.

And the third cell was to carry on the Iranian regime’s murder plot foiled in Denmark.


Iran MOIS actions in compelling the world to silence

Iranian resistance emphasizes on the necessity and importance of this designating in a seminar on “Iran’s New Wave of Terrorism – The EU and US responses,” held on October 4, 2018, at the Residence Palace in Brussels.

In a video message addressing the political dignitaries and the audience, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi,  the president-elect of the NCRI stated: “By using terrorism, the regime wants to compel the world to silence and surrender. The best response to such a regime is firmness. This is a responsible policy for global peace and security. The mullahs are highly motivated for terrorism.

The decisions for terrorist operations are made at the National Supreme Security Council presided by Hassan Rouhani, and subsequently approved by Khamenei.”

Subsequently, appreciating the firm stance by the Danish government against terrorism, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the Iranian resistance, emphasized the necessity of enlisting the regime’s MOIS as a terrorist entity.

Furthermore, in the Conference on “Iran’s new wave of Terrorism, the EU and US responses” on September 24, 2018, Senator Torricelli also said: “It is a pattern well recognized in history. For nine months hundreds and then thousands of people in small towns and cities across Iran have been demanding to reclaim their future, to end the despotic regime and restore democracy in Iran.

The government of Iran is watching. Silence invites more attacks. A policy of appeasement, but ensures more terrorism.

Iran is not just being tested here. So is the European Union and NATO and the United States. This is a defining moment.”

Regarding these facts, Iran MOIS will repeat more terrorism if it is condoned.

Therefore, it is necessary that Europe adopts a firm stance. As Mr. Vidal-Quadras, stated on September 24, 2018: “The High Representative Mrs. Federica Mogherini, must end her silence and condemn these terrorist actions by the Iranian regime and condemn them clearly and loudly.”

On October 20, 2018, ten senior members of the European Parliament issued a statement, calling on the European Union to blacklist the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) for its undeniable role in Tehran’s terrorism. According to another EU statement issued back in April 1997, “visas [should] not be granted to Iranians with intelligence and security functions’ and the ‘Iranian intelligence personnel from European Union Member States should be expelled.”

These are the demands that the Iranian resistance has been calling for, for decades.

The only way to confront Iran regime’s terrorism and its MOIS is to adopt a firm policy, and that would be:

  • Prosecute all Iranian agents in the US and Europe
  • Expel Iranian terrorist diplomats from Europe
  • Shut down Iranian regime embassies in Europe

Sanction all entities involved in planning, training, facilitating and funding terrorism and most important: Put MOIS in FTO lists.
