Maryam Rajavi- Women's Role in War against Fundamentalism
Maryam Rajavi speaks in Women's Role in War against Fundamentalism conference Conference in the European Parliament
Extremism under the banner of Islam is a fatal epidemic expanding throughout the world because it has not been confronted.
To defeat this epidemic, a comprehensive approach is vital.
Since the 1990s we have been warning that Islamic fundamentalism is the new global threat.
Today, there is a real concern about Daesh, but it should be noted that its expansion is a product of two developments in the region:
1. The Iranian regime's occupation of Iraq after the war in 2003 and the brutal crackdown on Sunnis by the mullahs' puppet government in Iraq.
2. Suppression of Syrian people and dissidents by Bashar Assad's government, backed and led by the mullahs' regime.
3. Therefore, if it was not for the Iranian regime's domination over Iraq and Syria,if the Sunnis were not suppressed in Iraq,if Bashar Assad's dictatorship did not exist, Daesh would not have emerged as a threat.
With the inception of the mullahs' rule in 1979, a concrete, practical model was created for all fundamentalist groups.
The history of the past 37 years proves that no other factor has been as effective as a ruling government acting as a role-model for the expansion of fundamentalist groups.
Particularly that the mullahs actively try to create these groups and guide them ideologically.
They also finance and provide arms for these groups.
The Hezbollah of Lebanon was made and backed by the mullahs.
The Ansarallah of Yemen is supported by the mullahs.
Several other militia groups in Iraq are affiliated with the Quds Force.
The African fundamentalists receive their arms from Iran.
Unfortunately, Western governments' silence and appeasement of the Iranian regime have emboldened other fundamentalist groups to follow in the mullahs' footsteps
