Iran-Iraq-masage of MaryamRajavi on Camo Liberty attacted

Religious dictatorship ruling Iran cannot save itself by committing a crime against humanity at Camp Liberty

masage of MaryamRajavi on Camo Liberty attacted

The Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi hailed the martyrs and those injured in the October 29 missile attack on Camp Liberty, describing them as symbols of admirable persistence of the people of Iran in their struggle to overthrow the mullahs' religious fascism and achieve freedom.

Mrs. Rajavi declared: Officially and legally, the Government of Iraq and the United Nations --who signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the final days of 2011 and have established Camp Liberty for four years as a "Temporary Transit Location (TTL)"-- must account for this attack. However, the Iranian regime's agents in the government of Iraq are directly responsible for the attack as it was the case in the six previous bloodbaths in camps Ashraf and Liberty, and the United States and the United Nations are fully aware of this reality.

The International Parliamentary Campaign in Defence of Ashraf and Liberty (IPCDA) is appalled by the news this afternoon of the 4th deadly rocket attack on Camp Liberty, Iraq, that lead to 23 residents dead and scores of others severely injured.

The dire situation of Camp Liberty and the threat the residents are facing has been known to us since they were moved from Camp Ashraf in 2012. There were 3 previous attacks on Camp Liberty leading to death of 14 residents. We were promised proper investigation in all those attacks but the UN and the U.S. government have failed to live up to their promises. And when the perpetrators of such heinous acts were not held responsible, further attacks were certain to happen.

Iran-Paris-report on a conference in France's National Assembly on October 27 Text of remarks by French lawmakers and Iranian dissident Shaqayeq Azimi,French lawmakers seek human rights policy on Iran

My parents are at risk in Iran - Shaqayeq Azimi

NCRI –  Shaqayeq Azimi22, whose parents were recently arrested in Iran by the fundamentalist regime for supporting the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK):

Distinguished members of Parliament, Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Mrs. Maryam Rajavi,

I want to thank the French Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran for giving me the opportunity to speak to you today.

My name is Shaqayeq Azimi. I am 22 years old and am a member of the People’s Mujahidin Organization of Iran (PMOI, or MEK).

Today, I am here to speak about my parents who are in jail in Iran.

On October 14th, I was informed that my parents were arrested a few days earlier in Iran. The arrest was solely due to the activities of my sister and I, and for being supporters and sympathizers of the PMOI.

Both my parents are ex-political prisoners. My mother suffers from MS and she has spent about 10 years in prison. From 1981 till 1986 she was detained in a horrific place called “Residential Unit”, where female prisoners were under severe pressures. Most of the people who were kept in those units never survived or lost their sanity. These tortures caused her to get MS. From 2009 till 2011 she was detained because of visiting me and my sister Niloufar in Camp Ashraf. Again in 2012 she was detained. And now once again she faces severe risks currently both due to her health and also her condition in prison.

Also my father who is suffering from heart problems has been persecuted both during the Shah's time and under the Mullahs’ rule.

Text of declaration on Iran by 70 French lawmakers

NCRI – A cross-party group of 70 French lawmakers issued a statement to the government of François Hollande this week, urging Paris to extend its "firm position" on the Iranian nuclear agreement into other matters of Iran policy, in particular focusing on human rights. The letter was made public on Tuesday (October 27, 2015) at a conference in France’s National Assembly sponsored by the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran.

Scores of prominent French parliamentarians including Mr. Bruno Le Roux, president of the governing Socialist Group in the assembly, attended and addressed the conference. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, was the keynote speaker.

The following is the text of the declaration signed by the 70 French parliamentarians:

Maryam Rajavi: Regime change and democracy in Iran, key to crisis in the Middle East

Maryam Rajavi: Regime change and democracy in Iran, key to crisis in the Middle East and conquest of extremism

Maryam Rajavi

In a conference on Tuesday, October 27, at the National Assembly of France, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi asserted that the systematic and flagrant violations of human rights in Iran is the other side of the coin marked by the Iranian regime's export of terrorism and fundamentalism which has driven the Middle East to the verge of war. The Middle East needs peace and tranquility and this is only possible by regime change in Iran and its key is in the hands of the Iranian people and Resistance, she proclaimed.
Any engagement with the ruling religious fascist regime and its president prevents change in Iran and works against democracy and human rights, Mrs. Rajavi added. Furthermore, it is detrimental to peace and tranquility in the region and fuels extremism. She said: Economic investment in this faltering regime is only a mirage.
The conference was sponsored by the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran headed by Mr. Dominique Lefebvre, member of the French National Assembly. A number of deputies including Mr. Bruno Le Roux, president of the Socialist Group; Michel Terrot; Stephane Saint-André; Martine Carrillon-Couvreur; Pierre Aylagas; Jean-Patrick Gille; Jean Lassalle; Catherine Quéré; as well as Sentor Jean-Pierre Michel attended and some addressed the conference. Mr. Nazir Hakim, secretary of the political board of the National Syrian Coalition; Dr. Alejo Vidal Quadras, former Vice-President of the European Parliament and President of the In Search of Justice Committee; Mr. Taher Boumedra, former human rights director of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq - UNAMI, in charge of the case of Camp Ashraf at the United Nations, also spoke to the gathering.
The Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran announced at this conference that 70 National Assembly deputies from various parties had issued a declaration calling on the Government of France to make its diplomatic relations with the Iranian regime contingent upon improvement of human rights, halt to executions, freedom of political prisoners and respect for democratic freedoms in Iran. The signatories believe that a democratic Iran is the essential requisite for regional stability and to this end, the Iranian Resistance and the ten-point plan of Maryam Rajavi for a democratic, non-nuclear Iran based on separation of religion and state and women's equality must be supported.

Maryam Rajavi pointed to recent remarks by Rafsanjani admitting that the clerical regime launched its nuclear program with the objective of producing a bomb. He said that the project was being followed up personally by himself and by Khamenei. Rafsanjani said the regime had no choice but to accept the nuclear agreement. This is why the mullahs have undertaken a more aggressive policy to compensate for their retreat. The astronomical rise in executions, escalated warmongering in Syria and continued siege and oppression of Iranian refugees in Camp Liberty are examples of this policy.

English text of address by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, to a conference in France's National Assembly - Paris, October 27, 2015:
Iranian people’s human rights and freedoms in the formulation of policy on Iran and the Middle East
Domestic suppression at home and export of terrorism beyond Iran’s borders constitute the two pillars for preserving the rule of the mullahs' regime in Iran
Mr. Dominique Lefebvre, President of the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran,
Honorable representatives,
Ladies and gentlemen,
Greetings to you all. I would like to express my appreciation on the efforts of the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran for sponsoring this conference.
Developments both in Iran and the region in the past year proved the value of the Committee’s initiatives in keeping the focus on the question of Iran.
Today, I will concentrate on the critical significance of the Iranian people’s human rights and freedoms in the formulation of policy on Iran and the Middle East.
The fact is that domestic suppression at home and exporting terrorism beyond Iran’s borders constitute the two pillars, upon which the regime has relied to preserve its rule.
The sinister, premeditated state machinery
As we speak, mullahs are brutally suppressing the Iranian people. This can be seen particularly in the mass and arbitrary executions described by Amnesty International as "a sinister picture of the machinery of the state carrying out premeditated, judicially-sanctioned killings on a mass scale."
The average number of executions under Rouhani stands at approximately 1,000 each year, the highest number in the past quarter century. In addition, there are several thousand more victims on the death row in various prisons across Iran. These executions point to the regime’s instability. The regime’s paranoia over concerts and theatrical performances reflects its fragility as much as its imprisoning of young bloggers, poets, cartoonists, journalists and filmmakers reveals its instability.
West’s three fundamental mistakes
Regrettably, Western governments have adopted a wrongheaded policy vis-à-vis the clerical regime due, in large measure, to their economic interests and Tehran’s propaganda and blackmail. This policy suffers from three fundamental flaws.
First, the perception that the mullahs perpetrate terrorism, genocide, and warmongering from a position of power.
Second, the perception that this regime, which is the very source of instability and insecurity, could be counted on as a partner for regional security.
Third, turning a blind eye on who and what constitute the actors for change in Iran.
Belligerence exacerbated after nuclear agreement
The July 14 nuclear agreement was undoubtedly a watershed moment. Nevertheless, if the regime were negotiating from the position of strength, it would have never agreed to the nuclear deal because the nuclear weapons program has always been a hallmark of its power.
According to Iranian regime’s official news agency yesterday, Hashemi Rafsanjani, the regime’s number two official from day one, admitted that Tehran had started the nuclear program with the aim of manufacturing a bomb and that it had never abandoned this goal, adding that he and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had personally pursued this matter.
As such, the regime was compelled to accept the agreement reluctantly. The nuclear deal has already undermined the regime in its entirety, forcing it into a dilemma, which forced Khamenei to approve it last week, but, at the same time, leaving himself some leeway to circumvent it.
In the post-deal environment, the regime is unable to institute any form of reform. To the contrary, it has to compensate for its partial retreat by becoming more aggressive and belligerent. When Khatami became president in 1997, some people propagated the illusion that the ruling religious dictatorship could reform itself. Those expectations, however, did not pan out.
Now the same ill-fated attempt is being repeated about Rouhani. This fanatical regime cannot transform itself. In the words of Voltaire, “Fanaticism is a monster that pretends to be the child of religion.”
In recent months, the mullahs have stepped up human rights violations in Iran. In a blatant attempt to create a crisis, they test fired a ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The mullahs' leader, Khamenei, reiterated the fatwa to murder Salman Rushdie.
In Syria, the mullahs expanded their warmongering and carnage, and when they suffered a major defeat, they jointly conspired with Russia to facilitate Moscow’s involvement. The Iranian regime's meddling in Syria has had three catastrophic consequences so far:
It led to the emergence and expansion of ISIS, incited terrorist attacks in Europe such as the Charlie Hebdo assassinations, and it has now brought about a colossal social crisis with two million refugees fleeing to Europe, creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.
This is while the solution lies in the eviction of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) from Syria and providing material support to the moderate Syrian opposition. As President François Hollande recently said at the UN General assembly, the solution is a Syria without Bashar al-Assad.
Consequences of partnering with the Iranian regime
Those advocating cooperation with the Iranian regime fail to consider the experience of Syria, Iraq and Yemen. If it were not for the Iranian regime's direct support for Bashar al-Assad, there would not have been a refugee crisis, nor would have 300,000 Syrians been killed. If it were not for the mullahs' support for Iraq's former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his criminal policies, there would have been no opportunity for the ISIS to grow and expand.
In the past 16 months, the Iranian regime has continued to pursue its criminal interference in Iraq under the false pretext of countering the ISIS. Unfortunately, the US Government has in effect gone along with that policy.
Instead of fighting ISIS, however, the mullahs have suppressed the people of Iraq and in marginalized the Sunnis.
Benefiting companies affiliated with the regime’s Supreme Leader
Economic cooperation with the Iranian regime also poses a major challenge. The Iranian people and merchants are interested in scientific, cultural, economic and technologic exchanges with France. The problem, however, is the domination of the country’s economy by the mullahs' Supreme Leader and the Revolutionary Guards Corps. They control over half to two-thirds of the GNP. Consequently, companies that belong to Khamenei and the IRGC would be parties to most of the contracts. Thus, such transactions only fuel the regime's machinery of war and repression.
The key to this crisis is in the hands of the Iranian people
The Middle East is in dire need of peace, stability and democracy. This would be possible only through regime change in Iran.
Nothing terrifies the ruling mullahs more than domestic discontent and the Iranian people's organized resistance. They saw how the 2009 uprisings pushed their regime to the brink of collapse.
After the nuclear agreement, the inhumane siege of PMOI members in Camp Liberty, Iraq has persisted. The regime continues to take agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and the Qods Force to Camp Liberty as part of a campaign of psychological torture of the residents. The medical blockade remains and the residents’ property is being plundered while they are denied the right to the ownership of their property.
Message of political prisoners
Regrettably, Western governments' relations with the regime, especially their disregard for the Iranian people's human rights and freedoms as well as their breach of commitments to the residents of Camp Liberty, have been to the detriment of change by the Iranian people and Resistance.
Two weeks ago, Iranian political prisoners sent an open letter to European governments. They wrote, “The life and security of human beings are worthless in Iran. How could a regime that has no mercy on its own people be of help in resolving the problems of other nations?”
“Partnering with the Iranian regime in regional security is bewildering because the Tehran is the source of the problems in the region and the Godfather of terrorism,” they added.
I must also point out to unrelenting demonstrations by teachers, workers and other segments of Iranian society, which reflect the desire and readiness of the Iranian society for change.
Need for policy change
In such circumstances, engagement with the religious fascism ruling Iran and its president is against democracy and human rights in Iran and encourages further executions. It also undermines peace and tranquility in the region and fuels terrorism as well as Shiite and Sunni extremism.
Needless to say, long-term economic investment in this decaying and faltering regime is nothing but a mirage.
We expect the international community, particularly the European Union, to predicate their relations with the Iranian regime on an end to executions in Iran. They should also pressure the clerical regime to release political prisoners.
And we expect the United States and the European Union to fulfill their commitments and pledges to protect Camp Liberty residents. It is time to put an end to the insecurity and siege of this Camp, especially the medical blockade.
And finally, it is necessary that Western governments respect the Iranian people's resistance for freedom.
The crux of the matter is the freedom of the Iranian people. As the Marseillaise says, "Freedom, o' freedom." This is the key to resolving the Iranian crisis and to confronting instability in the region.
Thank you all very much.

The mother of Reyhaneh Jabbari, an Iranian woman in her twenties who was executed a year ago for killing an Iranian intelligence agent who had attempted to rape her, spoke out against the injustices in Iran by the mullahs’ regime at a gathering on Sunday at Tehran's Behesht Zahra Cemetery to mark the first anniversary of her daughter’s execution.

Sholeh Pakravan said there are “hundreds and hundreds” of mother’s in Iran who cannot sleep at night because their sons and daughters have been snatched away from them by the authorities in Iran.

Iran's fundamentalist regime last year executed Ms. Pakravan’s daughter, Reyhaneh Jabbari, at the age of 26.

Ms. Pakravan was joined at the ceremony by Ms. Gohar Eshghi, the mother of dissident Iranian web-logger Sattar Beheshti who was tortured to death in prison in Iran in 2012. Ms. Eshghi said she did not fear what the regime might do to her and she vowed to be the voice of her late son to bring his murderers to justice.

Iranians mark anniversary of Reyhaneh Jabbari’s execution

Despite a clampdown on anti-regime gatherings and a heightened security presence around Reyhaneh’s grave, brave Iranians, including the families of the martyrs of the 1980s prison massacre and the 2009 anti-regime uprising, took part in the ceremony. Among the attendees were Dr. Mohammad Maleki, the first Chancellor of the University of Tehran following the 1979 revolution, and Ms. Gohar Eshghi, the mother of dissident web-logger Sattar Beheshti who was tortured to death in prison in 2012.

Plainclothes agents of the regime photographed the attendees on their departure.

When she was just 19 years old, Ms. Reyhaneh Jabbari was working as a decorator when she was forced to defend herself against an assault by the intelligence agent. She was jailed for seven years and was executed on October 25, 2014 despite an international campaign to save her.

Remembering Reyhaneh Jabbari
Sunday, 25 October 2015 00:00
By William C. Anderson, Truthout | Op-Ed

On the anniversary of Reyhaneh Jabbari's execution by the Iranian government, it's important to remember her through her own words
"With a hanging rope in front of my eyes, that I am not afraid of, I write to tell the tale that I lived, leaving nothing unspoken." - Reyhaneh Jabbari

Today is a cold anniversary marred by the reminder of an unjust death. On this day one year ago, Reyhaneh Jabbari was executed by hanging in Iran. She was only 26 years old at the time of her death. Despite the fact she was taken from this earth, she left us many important things before her departure. She willed us words that are eternally poetic, whether she intended them that way or not, whether she knew they would reach us or not.

The death of Reyhaneh Jabbari is more than just an unfortunate event. She is more than the horror that led up to her untimely demise. She was a young woman full of things we needed to hear and it's a shame that the world was only allowed to read about her in the terrible outcome of her "trial" and the international disgust thereafter. It's important for us all to realize that her execution, the injustice around it and the chauvinism hurled at her are not just Iranian problems.

Reyhaneh was convicted of killing a man she said attempted to rape her. She was arrested in 2007 after being accused of the murder of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former Iranian intelligence ministry worker. She wrote from prison about how she was forced to confess to premeditated murder:

Once they took me somewhere for interrogation where I saw a 14 or 15 year old girl hanging from the ceiling from her wrists. The girl was pale, her lips were cracked. She was whimpering.
[In another room,] the interrogator sat across from me and said that today or tomorrow they would go get my little sister ... He referred to her by name: Badook. "It is her turn," he said. "She is frail, thin ... How long do you think she will last hanging like that one?" He began telling me in detail what he was going to do in front of me to my little sister ... I started crying and begged him not to do such a thing. He said he had no alternative. I asked him what I could do to stop him from hurting my sister. He said: "It is very simple. Just confess that you bought the knife before the murder." ... So I wrote that I had bought the knife beforehand, signed the paper and breathed a sigh of relief.
She would spend years in prison awaiting her execution. I imbibed whatever words I could find from her after reading about her story and came to see her extremely moving heart in the expressions rendered from the captivity of imprisonment. The late Jabbari was a woman who like many other women became prey for the deviant intentions of men.

In Mexico, a case with some parallels took place with Yakiri Rubi Rubio. According to Yakiri, on December 9, 2013, she was abducted by two brothers who took her back to a hotel at knifepoint where they sexually abused her. She was ultimately able to use the weapon against her assailants and escape. Although she was not executed for defending herself, it was 18 months later after she'd spent time in prison that courts would concede she was defending herself.

Iran's regional rival, Saudi Arabia, sentenced a woman to six months in prison and 200 lashes for her gang rape around the same time Reyhaneh was arrested. Her punishment increased when she spoke to the media about what happened to her. She would ultimately be pardoned though she too faced prison time for her rape.

The state and its executioners often back up and reinforce the men who victimize rather than the women who have been victimized.
Women's punishment and death for rape and sexual abuse are not new phenomena. Europe and the United States both have rich histories in this regard. From the kidnapping and rape of enslaved African and Native women to the witch trials that took place throughout, criminalizing women at any expense was normalized as foundational early on in the formation of the nation-states we recognize today.

An early example lies in the case of a 19-year-old enslaved woman named Celia. After years of being raped by her "owner," Robert Newsom, she eventually became unwilling to take any more of his abuse. One night after Newsom informed Celia he would be paying her a visit she clubbed him to death upon arrival to her cabin. She faced trial over his murder and was hung at the gallows, like Reyhaneh, for killing the man who regularly violated her. Death makes permanent the solution then and now for many women who dare to challenge the desire of their male attackers.

The state and its executioners often back up and reinforce the men who victimize rather than the women who have been victimized. Reyhaneh's case is one more example of the futility of the death penalty.

I can never hope to completely understand the struggle or the women who have been taken away by the endless vortex of sexist accusation and punishment. For centuries, dating back to the most ancient of times, this spectacle has been repeated. Another young star was destroyed before she could actualize her hopes and her dreams. Reyhaneh told us as much when she wrote:

Anytime I think of my hopes and dreams, I start to cry. When I fall asleep thinking of the hopes I had for my future, I dream of myself on my wedding day wearing a white dress. Then slowly the dress turns from white to black, my eye makeup looks like I have been crying, my face is covered with black tulle and I see myself holding a bouquet of dried up dead flowers. I have never told a soul about this until now. No one knows how I was forced to give up the love of my life. I had to. When I was nineteen I had no idea that my life would go up in smoke in that house and that a few years later, the courts would decide to make me into ashes.
These institutions that snatched Reyhaneh are grossly repetitive: misogyny, execution and government. The way they worked in harmony to stifle her voice is an evil harmony in a sad song that plays on repeat the world over. Be it where I live in the United States or in Iran, each of these systems has the complete and full capability of committing more trauma on top of what already preexists. There is no reconciliation in the needles that inject poison, the ropes that squeeze necks or any of the methods governments use to kill those they have deemed unfit to live.

The irony lies in the fact that the ones who choose to take life see themselves as holy and in situations like Reyhaneh's, governments spite their adversaries by condemning them for killing women and men like her. Meanwhile, they all do the same to their own citizens. Reyhaneh was not a tool for jingoists to label Iran as primitive. She was a person who had her own life, her own desires and her own words. She was special and unique in the softness of her existence.

The reality that permanently stripped her of her physical consciousness was like a bullet piercing a cloud. Despite the fact she is gone and I'll never see her face, or read new words from her, she is still here. She will come and reform again and again like water that evaporates and falls from the sky and separates to go off distances. She is living because she chose to live through her final experience and surpass the boundaries of physical death.

In her final words to her mother, she said:

My kind mother, dear Sholeh, the one more dear to me than my life, I don't want to rot under the soil. I don't want my eye or my young heart to turn into dust ... Beg so that it is arranged that as soon as I am hanged my heart, kidney, eye, bones and anything that can be transplanted be taken away from my body and given to someone who needs them as a gift. I don't want the recipient to know my name, buy me a bouquet, or even pray for me. I am telling you from the bottom of my heart that I don't want to have a grave for you to come and mourn there and suffer. I don't want you to wear black clothing for me. Do your best to forget my difficult days. Give me to the wind to take away.
Reyhaneh has certainly given us her heart and spilled its beauty for us to carry it with us wherever we should go. In her words, she gave us bones to make us strong and kidneys to cleanse us of the toxins of this world. And lastly she gave us eyes to see if we will only look through them.

Iran-Maryam Rajavi's Message to Conference at Housesof Common: Britain ought to base relations with Iran's regime on end to death penalty

Maryam Rajavi's Message

 I call on Britain to predicate their relations with the Iranian regime on ending the death penalty

Iran-Maryam Rajavi's Message

Look at Iraq: The Iranian regime and the militia affiliated to the Qods Force are the main cause of instability in that country and have been most instrumental to the emergence and expansion of the ISIS. They have also exterminated the conditions for popular mobilization in Iraq to confront the ISIS. 

Iran-Maryam Rajavi's Message

Look at Syria: The main cause of instability are the Iranian mullahs. It is the Revolutionary Guards Corps that fights on the front line
of genocidal operations whose victims have exceeded 300,000. Tehran mullahs commanded a disastrous, nationwide crackdown, and brought about homelessness of millions of Syrians and mass migration of hundreds of thousands of them to Europe. The mullahs laid the grounds for Russia’s interference in Syria and escalation of the crisis there.

Look at Yemen: The mullahs and their proxy group led the country into war.

NCRI - A vast array of British lawmakers from all major parties on Monday took part in a conference in the UK House of Commons to discuss the underlying reasons for increased executions in Iran and the future consequences of the deteriorating human rights situation in that country, the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom said.

In a statement on its website, the committee added:
A message was read out on behalf of the President-elect of Iranian Resistance Mrs. Maryam Rajavi at the conference which was attended by over two dozen Parliamentarians and legal experts and which heard also from prominent British human rights advocates and members of the Anglo-Iranian Youth Society. Cross-Party panellists called on the UK government to hold the theocratic regime in Tehran and its leaders accountable for systematic human rights abuses and sponsorship of terrorism.

Speakers strongly condemned the regime's use of the Death Penalty including the execution of juvenile offenders to spread fear in society. Warning about the alarming trend of public hangings in Iran, they expressed serious concern over recent reports that the regime's Intelligence Ministry had arrested a number of political dissidents, supporters of the main Iranian opposition group, the PMOI, family members of Camp Liberty residents and former political prisoners.

In her message to the conference, Mrs. Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said, “We have time and again experienced that any policy relying on the Iranian regime, which is the main cause of instability and genocide in the region, is doomed to fail. The right policy is to side with the Iranian people and Resistance. I call on Britain and all western governments to stop ignoring human rights abuses in Iran and predicate their relations with the Iranian regime on the ending the death penalty.”

Maryam Rajavi's massage:Harrowing execution of a 23-year-old woman

The news of execution of a 23-year-old woman on October 12th was shocking particularly that it took place in Shiraz, Iran’s cultural capital, a short distance from Persepolis and the tomb of Cyrus the Great who announced the first charter in defense of human rights 25 centuries ago.
Fatemeh Salbehi had been sentenced to death in a hasty, unjust trial for murdering her husband at the age of 16, a charge that she never accepted. The punishment violated international humanitarian standards and was a breach of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on Children’s Rights.
The destiny of this innocent young woman is but an example of the fate of countless girls in Iran, today. No one was allowed to seriously defend her. Nobody asked why this 16-year-old girl had to marry when she was supposed to sit in her classroom. No one asked what kind of violence she was subjected to physically and psychologically. And no one asked why she was sentenced to the maximum punishment, the death penalty, while she had not accepted the charge.
The killing of this young woman once again unveils the cruel image of the ruling mullahs who need to spill blood of Iran’s youths and adolescents to maintain their grips on power.
 At the same time, western governments shamelessly keep silent and do not react to such news because of their financial deals and interests. When they do not stand up to the flagrant violations of human rights in Iran, the mullahs become emboldened and expand their threat to other parts of the world.

David Jones MP supports Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan for future Iran

NCRI - Rt. Hon. David Jones MP, former Secretary of States for Wales in the cabinet of Prime Minister David Cameron and a member of the House of Commons from the United Kingdom, addressed a major conference in Paris on human rights in Iran on October 10 on the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty.

It will be under the leadership of Maryam Rajavi that we will have truly a new era for Iran, because Mrs. Rajavi’s plan spells out a vision that is the precise opposite of what is presented to the Iranian people by Tehran’s theocratic rulers today. It comprises all the necessary elements to build a future platform for freedom and democratic progress in your country. It declares that in the free Iran of tomorrow, we support and are committed to the abolition of the death penalty. And we want to set up a modern legal system based on the principles of presumption of innocence, the right to defense and the right to be tried in a public court. Cruel and degrading punishments will have no place in the future Iran.

Paris - Text of speech by Ex political prisoner ,Farzad Madadzadeh at a conference on human rights in Iran on the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty

In the name of God,
In the name of liberty,
Hail to Iran’s shining sun sister Maryam [Rajavi], and our ever-alert brother Massoud, and hail to the Ashrafi heroines and heroes in Camp Liberty.
Greetings to my dear compatriots and you friends of the Resistance
Greetings to the struggling and Mojahed prisoners
And greetings to the martyrs of freedom
Hail to Akbar and Mahdieh that I am forever proud of.

My name is Farzad Madadzadeh. I have recently come from Iran. I am 30 years old and I have spent five years in the regime’s prisons.

I got to know the Resistance and the PMOI twelve years ago when I saw the picture of sister Maryam in the Asia Daily and then I watched the programs of Simaye Azadi, the resistance television.

After I learned about the PMOI, my path in life was drastically changed. The suffering of people concerned me and fighting this criminal regime and ending this suffering became my goal.

I was arrested in 2008 and I was condemned to five years in prison in Evin and Gohardasht.

Greetings to my dear sister Maryam [Rajavi] and all you dear friends,
Greetings to the combatants in Camp Liberty and all my compatriots that hear my voice,

My name is Paria Kohandel and I left Iran only a few months ago.
My father is political prisoner Saleh Kohandel who is imprisoned in the dreaded Gohardasht Prison.
On April 19, 2011, my dear uncle Akbar and my beloved aunt Mahdieh were martyred in an attack [on Camp Ashraf] by Nuri Maliki’s paid hands.

My dear sister Maryam, I bring you many greetings and hails.

The cries of mothers whose tears rain down on the floors of prisons;
The greetings of the working children with calloused hands who are waiting to breathe the clean air that you represent; the air of liberty and emancipation;
The greetings of the trampled girls in the pus of mullahs’ ruled society;
The greetings of those who kiss the noose in Gohardasht, Evin and Kahrizak.
My greetings have passed through the barbed wires of Gohardasht, the thick walls of Evin, and the storehouses of Qarchak;
The prisons that during my childhood I used to run in their dusty visitors’ halls.

I am the weekly voyager to Gohardasht and Evin prisons. As my father says, the Pari with a wonderful voice whose father lived only 20 minutes a week.

Mrs. Sholeh Pakravan, Reyhaneh Jabbari’s mother talks on the occasion of Oct. 10th the World Day Against Execution. She calls on those who execute people under the banner of the so called 'Justice' and those who see this horrifying and disgusting scene of a man or a woman battling for their life on the end of the rope, be it in public or inside prisons.
Mrs. Pakravan, as she claims, is an advocate of No to execution, since her own daughter, Reyhaneh was hanged last year on Oct. 25th for a so called crime that is in every man and woman’s right, in defense of her honor against a sexual assault by an Iranian intelligence ministry officer.

Two interview with An ex political prisoner who fled Iran: Electrocution, rape and drug-induced confessions in Iran prisons

Dissidents warn human rights in Iran worse under Rouhani - POLITICO

An Iranian dissident who fled his country after being imprisoned in Tehran for five years said in an interview Saturday with POLITICO that conditions for prisoners had worsened and human rights violations continued after the regime’s President Hassan Rouhani came to power.

Farzad Madadzadeh, a 29-year-old opposition activist, was arrested for political activities in February 2009 under the regime’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He said that after Rouhani came to power in 2013, more political prisoners had been jailed, conditions in prison worsened and the number of executions rose dramatically as the new regime sought to stave off the risk of a popular uprising fueled by increased access to outside information.

His interview with POLITICO comes three months after Western powers agreed to lift economic sanctions against Tehran progressively in exchange for its promise to limit nuclear activities. However, sanctions for human rights violations and support of terrorism remain in place, and evidence that Iran’s record on either front is worsening could impede a full normalization of ties with the West, and raise criticism of the nuclear deal.

“When Rouhani was elected all furloughs for jailed former officials of the regime were canceled,” said Madadzadeh, a member of the PMOI opposition group active inside Iran and among exiles in many countries. “Access to medical treatment outside of prison was called off completely. More people like teachers were arrested and imprisoned merely for demanding access to their welfare rights.”

Daily Mail: Electrocution, rape and drug-induced confessions in Iran prison

Blindfolded with his hands in cuffs, Farzad Madadzadeh would be beaten for up to 16 hours a day in an Iranian prison, the MailOnline wrote on Saturday. “He was electrocuted and punched by three guards who threw him around like a 'football', before returning him to a tiny solitary confinement cell. 

Each night for five years he would fall asleep wondering if death would come for him in the morning, or whether yet another day of torture and questioning was in store. His only crime? Speaking out against Iran's regime.”

'You are subjected to all kinds of torture - psychological and physical,' he told MailOnline. 'Constant interrogation, constant beating around the clock.

'Any moment you wait for something to happen - a new torture session or a death sentence.

'You are totally isolated from the rest of the world. The only voice you hear is the voice of death.'

He claims guards would bring drugs including heroin into the prison to encourage addiction, making it easier for interrogators to 'crack' prisoners suffering from withdrawal symptoms

Iran- text&Videio of Maryam Rajavi's speach,international conference in Paris ,World Day Against the Death Penalty: All forms of engagement with Iranian regime must be made contingent upon termination of the death penalty

Maryam Rajavi: Our plan is an Iran without the death penalty

Maryam Rajavi: Our plan is an Iran without the death penalty• All forms of engagement with Iranian regime must be made contingent upon termination of the death penalty. As long as the wave of executions continues in Iran, shaking hands with the mullahs is not justified in any way.• Supporting Assad and his continued rule help ISIS survive; eviction of the Iranian regime is the only way to overcome ISIS.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Greetings to all of you and thank you for attending this conference on this very meaningful day for mankind. This invaluable presence demonstrates powerful solidarity with the people of Iran who are subjugated by the mullahs’ daily hangings of their children.

The clerics hang young men under the name of Islam, despite the fact that the dignity and life of any human being is precious and must be respected.

According to the holy books, killing one person is akin to killing the entire humanity.

The murderous mullahs have executed more people this year than they did last year. While a single execution is enough to torment everyone’s conscience, world powers have remained disgracefully silent over the situation in Iran, especially as they were engaged in the nuclear talks and were busy striking a deal that would open the path to doing business with the regime. Sacrificing human lives at the altar of commercial interests have never been a good investment for anyone.

If Western governments had stood up to the abuse of human rights in Iran, the mullahs could have never expanded their barbarity to Syria and Iraq.

Benefitting from the policy of appeasement, the mullahs have easily occupied large parts of Iraq. They also continued their deadly intervention in Syria to prop up the tyrant of Damascus. The outcome has been the death of 300,000 people in Syria, and the flight of refugees abroad and the emergence of ISIS.

Now that the mullahs have failed in Syria, Russia has step in to save the Bashar al-Assad or at least safeguard its own interests in that part of the world.

The ruthless massacre of Syrians continues unabated, something that the whole world must stand up to. The massacre and repression of the Syrian people must be stopped. Some people misconstrue the fall of the Syrian regime as opening the gates of Damascus to ISIS. But this is a misleading argument manufactured by Iran’s ruling mullahs in a bid to save their puppet regime.

To the contrary, it is supporting Assad and his continued rule that empower ISIS to continue to survive and expand. By the same logic, the only way to overcome ISIS is to evict the Iranian regime from Syria and Iraq and topple Assad. In step with the clerical regime’s expulsion from Syria and Iraq, all forms of engagement with it must be conditioned on the halt to executions in Iran. As long as this sinister trend continues, there is no justification for reaching out to the mullahs, Rouhani and other officials of this anti-human regime.

We say to Western governments:

Stop your silence and inaction vis-à-vis executions and other atrocities of the religious fascism ruling Iran and, instead, respect the Iranian people’s resistance for freedom.

I thank you all and with your permission I would continue the rest of my remarks in Farsi.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I appreciate your presence at this conference and your attention to the human rights crisis in Iran.

On this day, which the UN has designated as the World Day Against the Death Penalty, I salute the 120,000 souls martyred for the cause of Iran’s freedom, especially the 30,000 Iranian political prisoners who were massacred in 1988.

On this day, I have come to appeal to the world for help to stop daily executions in my homeland.

Torture and executions must be stopped.

This is the demand of all of Iran’s people.

Dear friends!

The human rights of my oppressed compatriots have been violated and auctioned off on the international level.

Swapping human rights for nuclear deal, forsaking human rights in Iran in the face of the regime’s depravity and terrorism in the region, and disregarding human rights in Iran have become the hallmarks of the weakness and cowardice of international policies.

Should human rights be respected only on the papers of resolutions and international covenants?

Why is a red carpet spread for someone who must be put on trial for his direct role in atrocities and terrorism in the past three decades? At least make the negotiations with him predicated on ending executions in Iran.

I am referring to mullah Rouhani, the Iranian regime’s president. When he took office two years ago, I emphasized that nothing will change without freedom of expression and human rights, without freedom of political prisoners and freedom of political parties, and as long as the regime’s nuclear program and aggressive regional policy are pursued.

Now look at the annual rate of executions during Rouhani’s tenure compared to his predecessor. It has tripled. As Rouhani acknowledged, the regime’s activities for the manufacture of weapons have increased five folds. The budget for security and military affairs and export of fundamentalism, has considerably increased.

Violation of human rights has jumped in every respect, targeting all Iranians: from human rights defenders to women, youths and teachers who staged a nationwide protest just two days ago, and from Christians, Baha’i’s and the Sunnis to our Arab, Baluchi and Kurdish compatriots. I must also point to the enraged workers. It was just last month that the combatant worker, Shahrokh Zamani, lost his life in Gohardasht Prison.

Indeed, why does the world remain silent when Iranian political prisoners are tormented to death or hanged?

Why is the world silent when juveniles are executed in Iran?

Why is this barbaric tyranny not pressured to publish at least a complete list of names of those it executes?

Today, a large number of our defenseless countrymen are secretly executed in prisons across the country. Several thousands more are on the death row.

We think of their parents, and of their wives and children who spend nights and days under stress.

We think of the women who sell their kidneys to pay for their husbands’ blood money and save them from being executed.

Criminals should be cursed, as should those who appease them!

Shame on those who turn a blind eye to so much abuse of human rights in Iran!

Those who seek to wash the stain of these crimes off the hands of the regime’s president must know that this policy will open the way for more atrocities and genocide in the region and the world.

Rouhani has clearly pronounced that these executions “are either based on Divine Law or on some legislation adopted by the parliament… and we only carry them out.”

Despite their differences, the ruling mullahs have a common viewpoint on executions and repression. They benefit from executions to preserve their regime.

However, the criminals should know that the blood they spill every day from the body of the Iranian nation will turn into a flood that will ultimately put an end to the mullahs’ regime.

Honorable ladies and gentlemen,

The religious fascism ruling Iran hangs and executes people basically on three charges:

The first and most important charge is political opposition.

Since three decades ago, tens of thousands of people have been executed only because of their opposition to the regime. They were accused of various unjustifiable and invalid charges without any due process of the law.

Based on the clerical regime’s penal code, anyone who is a member or supporter of the PMOI or in any way affiliated to it is considered a mohareb (someone who has waged war on God) and the punishment for a mohareb is death. The number of those who have been executed for their dissent is by no means small, and countless young people have been executed for protesting the nationwide oppression.

Islam or in the international law do not consider fighting for regime change to be a crime; it is the fundamental and inalienable right of any nation to overturn oppression and injustice.

Others are executed on drug charges. The mullahs hang a considerable number of Iran’s youths on this charge. But those executions violate the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Just this past month, the UN Secretary General declared that applying the death penalty to offenses such as drug-trafficking are not permissible under international law.

The Human Rights Council and the High Commissioner on Human Rights have denounced these executions.

And the UN Special Rapporteur on extra-judicial executions and the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crimes proclaimed that such charges are not punishable by death.

Needless to say, in many cases, this charge has been basically proven false and has served as a pretext to justify political executions.

The mullahs’ third excuse for executions is that they claim to be implementing Islamic decrees.

A large number of our compatriots are executed based on the medieval law of retribution which contradicts Islam’s message of clemency and compassion. The dynamism inherent in Islam and the Quran rejects this inhuman justification. Therefore, both claims to Islam and combatting drugs are hollow. The mullahs’ sole objective is to terrorize the society and stifle social protests.

They have turned homicide into a common, daily routine.

The public hanging of convicts in front of their families, and even their children, crushes their hearts, minds and conscience.

Executions, torture, stoning, amputations of limbs, and eye gouging have been institutionalized and turned into law in this regime.

Yes, the existence and rule of this regime depend on executions because if there are no more executions, there would be nothing to prevent the eruption of public fury and seething social uprisings by the people.

Without executions, how and by what means could the mullahs deny people their freedoms and instead step up suppression, intimidation and all sorts of restrictions into the most private angles of people’s lives?

Without executions, how else could the mullahs increase the prices several folds every day, squander the public’s wealth and revenues in regional wars and plunder them in a life of luxury?

Despite such horrific oppression that feeds into the social potential for explosion, the ruling mullahs must know that they will be ultimately toppled by the Iranian people and their organized resistance.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Western governments expand their political and business relations with the religious fascism ruling Iran as if this catastrophe is merely a domestic issue.

Ironically, such relations are the worst form of interference in the internal affairs of Iran and, of course, serve the interest of the mullahs.

Ignoring the Iranian people’s human rights and freedoms is the basic cause of the failure of western policy not only in Iran but also in the entire region which has been victimized by the ruling mullahs’ export of fundamentalism, repression and terrorism.

This failure also manifests itself in the nuclear deal. Predicating the agreement on respect for the Iranian people’s human rights could have forced the regime into a full retreat.

When the mullahs are given free reins in the brutal executions of our nation’s children, they step up their threats to the region and the world.

Therefore, we say to Western governments:

Make all relations with the Iranian regime contingent upon the end to death penalty.

Pressure the mullahs’ regime to free all political prisoners.

Refer the case of 1988 massacre by this regime to the International Criminal Court.

Respect the Iranian people’s resistance for freedom.

As for the mullahs’ main target of killing and massacre in recent years, namely the PMOI members in Camp Liberty, deliver on your promises to protect them.

Specifically, the inhuman siege on Camp Liberty and especially its medical blockade, must be lifted.

Camp Liberty’s dossier and its management must be taken out of the hands of elements affiliated to the Iranian regime.

The dispatch of Intelligence Ministry agents to Liberty, under whatever pretext must end; this is a prelude to massacre.

And the government of Iraq must facilitate the sale of the PMOI properties in Ashraf to fund the expenses in Liberty.

Dear friends,

Our plan for future is an Iran without the death penalty and devoid of torture. Our plan is putting an end to torture and all forms of human rights abuse in Iran.

The Iranian Resistance declared years ago that it calls for abolition of death penalty and an end to torture and all forms of rights abuses in Iran.

Our plan is to revive friendship, conciliation and tolerance.

Our plan for future is to put an end to the mullahs’ religious decrees. We reject the inhuman penal code and other abusive laws of this regime. We believe Retribution is an inhuman law.

We advocate laws that are based on forgiveness, compassion and humanity.

The Iranian Resistance Leader Massoud Rajavi ordered the release of thousands of Khomeini’s agents arrested in the battles of the National Liberation Army of Iran --many of whom had committed murder against the PMOI-- without the slightest violation of their human rights.

Yes, this is an enduring tradition of the Iranian people’s resistance.

Our plan is to institute an independent, dynamic and free judiciary.

Our plan is to defend democratic values, freedom, equality and sanctity of every citizen’s private life.

No one will be arrested arbitrarily; torture is banned; no defendant is deprived of the right to defense and having a defense attorney; the principle of presumption of innocence is respected and no one, especially no woman, will be deprived of having access to justice when subjected to violence, aggression and abuse of her freedoms.

Our plan for Iran’s future is that no one should be denied his/her freedoms, rights or life because of having or not having faith in a particular religion or for abandoning it.

Our plan is for all citizens to enjoy genuine security and equal rights before the law.

Yes, we are seeking a new order based on freedom, democracy and equality.

We have chosen to persevere and fight on to let our people enjoy a life in freedom and prosperity, so that no youngster under 18 years of age would have to wait in the corridors of death in prison to reach legal age for execution; so that no mother would ever shed tears of grief for her executed child.

Our motivation for resistance till victory is not spite and revenge but our love for freedom and human rights. This is fuel sour steadfastness. And the secret to this endurance is nothing but being prepared to sacrifice and pay the price.

Look at this book of martyrs. Look at the resistant prisoners. Look at those who stand proud at Liberty Prison. Look at our compatriots who support this Resistance the world over inthe largest-ever international campaign of our time.

These are all glad tidings for Iran’s freedom.

This plan is not a dream, but will certainly become reality in the future Iran.

The sacrifice of those executed, the suffering of those imprisoned, and the sacrifice and endurance of pioneers of freedom in Liberty, are a calling on every one to rise up to create such a bright future.

I wish you all success.

Thank you very much.
