International conference calls for a firm policy toward the growing terrorism of the Iranian regime
Brussels - Feb. 4, 2019 - On Monday, a conference at the European Parliament headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, discussed the growing terrorist activities of the Iranian regime and the correct policy that the international community, especially Europe, must take to address the threats posed by the Iranian regime.
The conference comes less than two weeks prior to a major international conference in Warsaw, Poland, where senior officials will be discussing multitudes of threats the Iranian regime is posing to global peace and security. It is also being held against the backdrop of increased terrorist activities by the Iranian regime in Europe.
Former European Parliament Vice President Dr. Alejo Vidal Quadras, who moderated the conference, stressed that terrorist acts coming out of Iran are being coordinated at the highest levels of power within the regime, a fact that Iranian regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif implicitly admitted to in a recent parliament hearing.
“However, [EU foreign policy chief Federica] Mogherini and her colleagues are trying to hide this truth,” Quadras said. “The remarks of Iranian officials and the facts on the ground leave no doubt that we are faced with the rise of Iranian terrorism against Europe. We must protect our countries.”

EU sanctions Iran’s regime for terror plots in Europe
On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, the Danish Foreign Minister, Anders Samuelson, announced enacting sanctions against the security deputy and two agents of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) for its terrorist plots on European soil. These sanctions are a necessary response to prevent the continuation of the terrorist acts of this regime on the European soil, which must be completed by blacklisting the Ministry of Intelligence and the Revolutionary Guards in their totality, and by putting on trial and expelling the regime's intelligence agents and mercenaries. The ruling mullahs in Iran should know that their terrorist activities would have serious consequences.
Human Rights Abuse, Repression & Terrorism, the Three Pillars of the Iranian Regime
Could I thank the Frontline Media Club for holding this important meeting today. It is a great pleasure for me to be here.
I have been closely following the situation of Iran for nearly two decades. During my time in the European Parliament, I chaired the Friends of a Free Iran intergroup for 10 years. The intergroup consisted of many MEPs from different political groups and different countries. Apart from numerous articles, in 2014 I wrote a book about the Iranian opposition, ‘Self-Sacrifice’, which has been translated from English to French and German.
Plots of the mullahs' intelligence ministry and embassy in Norway
The clerical regime's terrorist plot in Europe in 2018, organized by the diplomats and embassies of the religious fascism ruling Iran, has made a review in relations with this regime ever more necessary. In 2018, the regime's terrorist plots spanned over Albania, France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Denmark. In the same year a terrorist-diplomat of the regime was arrested in Germany and handed over to Belgian judiciary, the regime's ambassador and the head of Iran’s Intelligence station in Albania, and three other diplomat-terrorist of this regime were expelled from France and the Netherlands.
British committee supports expulsion of Iranian regime diplomats from Albania
Jan. 3, 2019 - Albanian authorities recently announced the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats due to their "involvement in activities that harm the country's security" and for "violating their diplomatic status."
Iranian regime’s ambassador to Albania Gholamhossein Mohammadnia was one of these diplomats.
Iran ambassador to Albania is expelled
Expulsion from Albania of the mullahs’ Ambassador and Intelligence Ministry station chief is a necessary step in countering terrorism and the religious dictatorship ruling Iran
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the expulsion of the Iranian regime’s Ambassador and Intelligence Ministry’s station chief in Albania. She described this courageous act as a necessary step in countering terrorism and the religious dictatorship ruling Iran and an imperative for the security of European countries.
Last April, Prime Minister Edi Rama announced that a terrorist plot hatched by the clerical regime against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) had been foiled. “We are on the right side of history. We are among European-Atlantic countries who are similarly under threat. I believe all these countries will act against terrorist threats,” Mr. Rama stated on April 19, 2018.
Gholamhossein Mohammadnia, the regime’s ambassador to Albania, and Mostafa Roudaki, the Intelligence Ministry’s (MOIS) station chief in that country, are both senior MOIS officials, who were exposed by the Iranian Resistance in 2016 and 2017. Mohammadnia was the MOIS representative in the delegation headed by the regime’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif during the nuclear talks that led to the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

ted by Ambassador Adam Ereli, former U.S. envoy in Bahrain and former U.S. State Department deputy spokesperson, the Members of Congress who participated expressed their support for the Iranian people’s uprising and ongoing protests across the country while condemning the regime’s domestic crackdown and foreign support for terrorism. These speakers called for increasing decisiveness in the face of the mullahs’ regime in Iran.
Brussels: PMOI / MEK supporters rally against Iranian regime’s terrorism
Coinciding with the session of European Union foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday November 19, during which the Iranian regime’s export of terrorism to the Green Continent was discussed, a large number of Iranian supporters of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) rallied outside the European Union headquarters condemning Tehran’s terror plots.
EU should include Iran regime’s Intelligence Ministry on the terrorist list, prosecute its agents
European Union Foreign Ministers decided on Monday to consider imposing sanctions on Iran’s regime over its role in terrorist actions in Denmark and France.
Adopting a firm policy toward the religious fascism ruling Iran is an imperative requisite for combatting state terrorism. The Iranian Resistance therefore calls for the blacklisting of the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) as a terrorist entity and prosecution of its agents and diplomats who were directly involved in the terrorist plots in Albania, France, the United States and Denmark, respectively in March, June, August and September 2018. The regime’s diplomat-terrorists and agents must be prosecuted and held accountable.
Tricks of the Iranian regime’s notorious intelligence and the records of the arrested agent in Denmark
Mohammad Davoudzadeh Lului, 39, a Ministry of Intelligence officer has been serving Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) since 10 years ago. He was arrested at the Göteborg airport in Sweden on October 21, 2018, at the request of the Danish government when he returned from Iran. He was under prosecution for participating in a terrorist plot against Iranian Arab citizens in Denmark. His active communications with Iran’s ambassador and embassy in Norway once again proves the fact that embassies and agencies of the clerical regime and its diplomats actively engage in terrorism and spying by using diplomatic facilities. A significant number of agents of the terrorist Quds Force and the infamous Ministry of Intelligence are conducting crimes in various countries around the world under diplomatic cover, and in turn, administer and feed networks of the regime’s agents under different excuses. In recent months, in addition to Assadollah Asadi (regime’s diplomat in Austria) who is imprisoned in Belgium, two terrorist diplomats from the Netherlands and another terrorist diplomat from France were expelled from these countries.
October 29 was the third anniversary of a missile attack at Camp Liberty in Iraq, where hundreds of defenseless MEK members were housed. The attack consisted of a barrage of 80 missiles and killed 24 MEK members; the damage was estimated at over $10 million.
In fact, IRGC and MOIS intended to massacre the MEK members through that terrorist operation. But this ominous intention failed thanks to the MEK members’ alertness.
Tweets Reveal Mullahs Setting the Stage for Acts of Terrorism Against the Iranian Resistance
Twitter’s release of a portion of tweets by the clerical regime’s cyber machine reaffirmed the Iranian Resistance’s long held position that Iran’s religious fascism is the primary source of hostility and vilification vis-a-vis the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The regime views the destruction of the Iranian Resistance as the only way to save itself from the prospect of inevitable overthrow.
EU condemns Iranian regime murder plot in Denmark
Nov. 2, 2018 - One day after the Iranian regime’s murder plot was foiled in Denmark, the European Union issued a statement condemning this terrorist plan.
The European Commission spokesperson condemned any threat against Europe’s security, adding the Union takes these threats seriously and stands alongside any government concerned in this regard.
On Wednesday, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen indicated his government being in talks with their European allies and weighing joint measures against the Iranian regime.

Iran diplomat, agents accused of plotting terror attack against PMOI/MEK
Asadollah Assadi, a diplomat-terrorist of the Iranian regime who was extradited from Germany to Belgium on Tuesday, was arraigned on Wednesday in a Belgian court. He and three other agents of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are now facing terrorism charges.
Assadi was based in Vienna and is now facing charges of intending to bomb a rally held by the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Paris back in June, according to EuroNews.
Iranian diplomat’s extradition and trial: a state-sponsored terrorist attack across half Europe
The arrest of Assadollah Assadi, a Vienna-based Iranian diplomat, on July 1, 2018, by German police on terrorism charges set a series of developments in motion that can have far wider repercussion for the Iranian regime than is initially evident.
On June 30, Iranian exile community members gathered in Paris for an annual rally of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an umbrella organization for a broad range of Iranian factions opposing the mullah regime in Iran.

How to Combat Iranian Terrorism
Conference in Brussels on the threats posed by Iran regime
On Thursday, a conference held in Brussels, Belgium, discussed the growing terrorist threat of the Iranian regime and how the international community must respond. Titled “Iran’s New Wave of Terrorism: EU and US Responses,” the event featured speeches by politicians, jurists, and dignitaries from Europe, U.S. and the Iranian opposition.
In his opening remarks, Dr. Alejo Vidal Quadras, former Vice President of the European Parliament , who moderated the panel of speakers, recounted the uptick of the Iranian regime’s terrorist activities against the Iranian opposition, especially against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
MARYAM RAJAVI : SILENCE ON THE MULLAHS’ TERRORISM, THE MOST DAMAGING KIND OF APPEASEMENT OF THE RELIGIOUS DICTATORSHIP
Message to the conference in Brussels, “Iran’s New Wave of Terrorism”-October 4, 2018
Maryam Rajavi addressed 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 her video message to the political dignitaries and audience in the seminar, Maryam Rajavi said:
I would like to express my appreciation for your attention to the necessity of countering terrorism by Iran’s ruling mullahs.
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.
Popular protests have been continuing for nine months in Iran and the mullahs have not been able to stop them. As the regime’s highest officials have confessed, the PMOI has had an increasing role in organizing and leading the uprisings.
The country’s currency has lost 80 percent of its value in 12 months.
Strasbourg, Oct. 3, 2018 - The Friends for Free Iran in the European Parliament held a meeting on Wednesday in the legislative body’s headquarters in Strasbourg, France, in which MEPs from various political groups discussed the human rights situation in Iran, ongoing protests in Iran and the Iranian regime’s role in spreading global terrorism.
The meeting was also attended by Dr. Alejo Vidal Quadras, former VP of the European Parliament and president of the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ), and Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), who were guest speakers at the event.
France response was necessary to deal with the MOIS terrorist acts of extreme gravity
Reacting to the October 2 joint statement by France’s interior, foreign and economy ministers, the NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi called it “an appropriate and necessary response” to the terrorist acts of “extreme gravity” by the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) on the French soil.
“Behind all this was a long, meticulous and detailed investigation by our (intelligence) services that enabled us to reach the conclusion, without any doubt, that responsibility fell on the intelligence ministry,” a French diplomatic source told Reuters, adding that deputy minister and director general of intelligence Saeid Hashemi Moghadam had ordered the attack.

PARIS (Reuters) - France said on Tuesday there was no doubt Iran’s intelligence ministry was behind a June plot to attack an exiled opposition group’s rally outside Paris and it seized assets belonging to Tehran’s intelligence services and two Iranian nationals.
The hardening of relations between Paris and Tehran could have far-reaching consequences for Iran as President Hassan Rouhani’s government looks to European capitals to salvage a 2015 nuclear deal after the United States pulled out and reimposed tough sanctions on Iran.
German court orders the extradition of Iranian terrorist diplomat
Bamberg, Oct. 1, 2018 - On Monday, the regional court of Bamberg region, Germany, declared it had approved the extradition of Assadollah Assadi, an Iranian diplomat involved in a foiled terrorist plot against Free Iran 2018, the largest annual Iranian opposition gathering
The Free Iran 2018 gathering, held on June 30, saw the attendance of tens of thousands of Iranians from across the world who support democratic regime change in their country. The event featured speeches by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), as well as politicians and dignitaries from different countries of the world. The rally’s guest speakers included Rudy Giuliani, lawyer and advisor to the U.S. President, Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Stephen Harper, former Canadian Prime Minister, and Bernard Kouchner, former Foreign Minister of France.
The Iranian resistance welcomes the decision of the Bamberg Supreme Court and stresses on speeding up judicial proceedings in the case of the largest Iranian state-sponsored terrorism project and its operational commander, Assadollah Assadi, and disclosure of all its details. The Iranian regime's state-sponsored terrorism should be referred to the United Nations Security Council.
Inaction with respect to the unhindered terrorism of the mullahs, whose diplomats are directly involved in, leaves the door open for continuing the crimes by the clerical regime. Therefore, the European Union and all European countries must adopt a decisive policy. Expelling all regime intelligence agents, those who work in diplomatic portfolios, or those who work under the guise of a journalist or businessman, or other covering associations is among those. Embassies and Representations of the regime should be shut down and European ambassadors should be recalled from Iran.

A closer look at the Iranian regime’s increased terrorist activities
Adapted from El-Bashayer Online – written by Abdul Rahman Mahabadi (Professional writer and Iran analyst)
Sept. 20, 2018 - In its 40-year history, the terrorist and fundamentalist regime of Iran has done everything within its power to terrorize and destroy its dissidents and opponents. The regime has been engaging in terrorism across the world in different ways. This is a reality that parliamentarians and politicians have confirmed in the past years, and they have recognized the Iranian regime as the biggest state sponsor of global terrorism.
At the turn of the year, when protests erupted across Iran, the Iranian regime increased its efforts to strike at the Iranian opposition in hopes of stifling the uprisings. Following the remarks of the Iranian regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, in which he emphasized the role of the PMOI/MEK in the uprisings, the Iranian regime engaged in several terrorist attempts. At the doorsteps of the Iranian new year in March, the Iranian regime dispatched a group of terrorist to Albania to detonate bombs at the annual gathering of the MEK. Again, in June, another team of Iranian regime terrorists tried to bomb a large Iranian opposition rally in Paris. Shortly after, a similar attempt was discovered in the U.S. If any of these terrorist attempts succeeded, it would have caused a disaster.
Iran Regime Must Be Held Accountable for Their Terrorism
New Details on the Iranian Regime’s Terrorist Activities in Europe
The UK Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)
put the Iranian Regime’s terrorist plots in Europe front and centre today, during a press conference in London.
In the conference, the NCRI revealed new details about the Iranian regime’s terrorist activities, including the recent attempted bombing in Paris, the people who organised them, and how the highest-ranking regime officials approve these attacks.
Cross-party MPs and Peers from both Houses of Parliament also partake in the conference to announce their new initiative to counter Tehran’s terrorist activities and address Iranian regime’s support for terrorism that threatens the security of Europe and its citizens.
New information includes details on the Iranian authorities and institutions involved in the terrorism in Europe, and the chain of command in terrorism and terror decision-making process.
Recent revelations have shed light on Tehran’s espionage network in the United States, especially following the arrest of “two Iranian Intelligence Ministry agents, Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar and Majid Ghorbani, spied on and plotted against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran/Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (PMOI/MEK), the largest group in the coalition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI),” according to Prof. Raymond Tanter in his latest latest article.
Despicable Demonization Campaign Against Iranian Democratic Opposition PMOI (MEK), Preparing the Grounds for Terrorist Attacks
By Alejo Vidal-Quadras
The International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ) exposes the intensifying measures of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to demonize the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in a bid to prepare the ground for terrorist acts against the main democratic opposition to the religious dictatorship ruling Iran.
The covert and unannounced videotaping by the British Channel 4 of the residence of the Iranian refugees - members of the PMOI - in Albania on August 10, and the publication of these pictures in less than 24 hours, on the websites of Iranian intelligence ministry known as Iran-Interlink, has caused deep concern about the security and safety of these refugees. Specifically, that Channel 4 has refused to respond to letters by the PMOI spokesperson, a copy of which has been sent to the ISJ.
Europe should counter Iran’s cyber espionage, infiltration, terrorism
The more discord persists in the West over the means of responding to Iranian covert operations, the more impact these operations will have, writes Alejo Vidal-Quadras.
Alejo Vidal-Quadras, a Spanish professor of atomic and nuclear physics, was vice-president of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2014. He is currently the president of the Brussels-based International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ).
Both Facebook and Twitter recently announced that they had removed hundreds of accounts in the wake of revelations from the cybersecurity FireEye, which identified them as being linked to coordinated disinformation campaigns that originated with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
In an effort to confront fake news and terrorism propaganda fomented by the Iranian regime, social media giants, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, have recently suspended and blocked a number of accounts, pages and channels affiliated with Iran.
This includes 39 channels linked to the Iranian regime’s state-run TV/radio IRIB network, all blocked by Google in YouTube. Google also closed down six weblogs and 13 Google+ accounts, while Facebook has announced the closing of 562 pages. These are all linked to the Iranian regime.

Two more Iranian regime spies arrested in the United States
August 21, 2018 - On Monday, the U.S. Department of Justice declared that two Iranian men were arrested on charges of spying for the Iranian regime. The suspects, Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar, 38, and Majid Ghorbani, 59, were allegedly involved in conducting surveillance on organizations and individuals that the Iranian regime considers as enemies, most prominent among them the PMOI/MEK.
According to a DOJ press release, in September 2017, Ghorbani, a resident of California, attended an MEK rally in New York and photographed participants, who had gathered to protest against the Iranian regime. Ghorbani later contacted Doostdar and delivered 28 photographs of dissidents to him, for which he received $2,000 in cash. Ghorbani’s photos also contained hand-written annotations identifying the individuals who appeared in them.

While referring to the widespread protests in various cities in August, Hassan Rouhani, the President of the clerical regime, demonstrated his animosity against the PMOI and said on August 6: "There is nothing wrong with the people’s protests ... but it shouldn’t be like some people respond to a group let (’s requests).”
Subseqently, the regime’s Supreme Security Council, in an instruction to the Ministry of Intelligence, the terrorist Quds Force, the Revolutionary Guards Intelligence and other agencies involved in export of terrorism and fundamentalism, ordered them to take further measures to spy on the PMOI and the Iranian Resistance and to set the stage for terrorist acts.
Iran’s Intelligence Ministry Uses Britain’s Channel 4 Against Iranian Refugees in Albania
On Friday, August 10, 2018, a three-person television crew secretly and without prior notice filmed and photographed inside the residence of members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), refugees in Albania, from adjacent land. Local Albanian security agents who spotted this suspicious and illegal act asked them to stop filming and to hand over the recordings. But the crew, who introduced themselves as Britons working for Britain’s Channel 4 TV, ignored this request and continued their work until Albanian police moved in and took them to the police station.
Iranian Diplomat Coordinated MOIS Operations in Europe Foiled Terror Plot in Europe

Iran plots terror on European soil as EU tries to shield regime from Trump sanctions push
By Adam Shaw | Fox News
As the European Union decries America's restoration of Iran sanctions, the Islamic regime is rewarding Europe’s support by ramping up its terror operation on the continent -- allegedly plotting attacks against Iranian dissidents there and politicians who back them.
The Trump administration restored sanctions on the rogue regime this week, a consequence of the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Obama-era Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). That move provoked a strong response from European leaders, who said they “deeply regret” the U.S. decision.

Iranian regime’s escaping forward and measures following the defeat of the terrorist plot
July 19, 2018 - Following the Grand Gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Paris and the failure of the mullahs' terrorist plot and the arrest of regime’s agents, including a terrorist diplomat, the regime’s Supreme National Security Council held a meeting upon Khamenei’s order and commissioned the relevant bodies such as the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Intelligence, the Quds Force, the Revolutionary Guards intelligence, and the state-run media to work to minimize the consequences of this big scandal.
The government apparatuses and authorities were obliged to pin the blame on the PMOI to cover this scandal. This is a well-known trick of escaping forward by which they attempt to portrait the arrest of the terrorists in Belgium and France and the arrest of a terrorist diplomat in Germany as a stage-setting to frame the regime on the verge of Rouhani’s visit to Europe, claiming that the PMOI had trapped that terrorist diplomat.
Following the release of the statement by Belgium Prosecutor and Federal Security Agency, the regime’s foreign minister said: "Just at the time the president's visit to Europe begins, an Iranian operation is disclosed and its “perpetrators” are arrested." He added that he is ready to cooperate with relevant authorities to clarify what is “just a deceptive operation to give a false address."
Mohsen Rezai, the former commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the secretary of the regime’s Expediency Council, in order to implement the same directive, made a cock and bull story to promote the two arrested terrorists in Belgium to high-ranking members of the PMOI. He wrote shamelessly that the two "contacted the diplomat and talked about their readiness to cooperate with Iran ..." and that's why "these two people met with our diplomat in a place where a package was exchanged which was recorded by closed-circuit cameras or by the Monafeqin [the term used of the PMOI by the regime]”. “These two members of the Monafeqin made themselves subject to the arrest, and confessed to such a plot led by the Iranian diplomat," said the former stupid commander of IRGC.
The regime’s scenario, which was revealed by the Belgian authorities, clarifies further absurd comments fabricated by the mullahs’ Supreme Security Council. A Belgian police official said: "In Luxembourg, there was a meeting that was under control, and all together (security services from different countries) quickly worked to discover the bomb and arrest Assadi. The regime seems to have hoped that the bombing would be seen as a PMOI’s internal issue, which was a theory that could have been credible, but when we arrested their people during the act, the situation changed. "( BuzzFeed website- July 11, 2018)
At the same time, the Ministry of Intelligence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned some in Europe and the US who support the regime, including those interested in appeasing the regime, to pretend as if some elements in the regime arbitrarily planned for this terrorist crime. Daniel Benjamin, the counterterrorism coordinator at the US Department of State in Obama's administration, who exhausted all his efforts and up to the last minute to prevent implementation of the court’s verdict to delist the PMOI, and whose hysteric hostility towards the PMOI has clear motives, said in this regard that he can't eliminate the possibility that this could be a rogue operation planned by Iranian security services — or by radical elements within the Iranian security services — aimed at embarrassing the Rouhani government and perhaps even putting them in charge of an embattled Iran.
Extraterritorial units of the Quds Force and the Ministry of Intelligence stations outside the country were once again required to focus on the use and recruitment of indigenous elements in Albania, Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo in order to implement terrorist plans against the PMOI in Albania through them. The radio and TV overseas directorate of the mullahs was also obliged to prepare fake films and reports against the PMOI in these countries in order to set the stage for criminal acts.
The IRGC was mandated to expand the scope of its intelligence and espionage activities for obtaining information from within the PMOI.

Khamenei, Rouhani Ordered Bomb Attach Against Free Iran 2018 Gathering in Paris
Iranian regime's offices in Europe should be shut down, and its intelligence and Quds Force agents should be expelled
The German Federal Prosecutor announced in its statement on July 11 that German judiciary had ordered the arrest of Assadollah Assadi, a mullahs’ terrorist diplomat, on charges of espionage and collaboration for murder.
He had previously been arrested on July 1 based on a European arrest warrant. According to the statement, Assadi had commissioned a couple residing in Antwerp in March 2018 to carry out an assault using explosives on the Iranian’s annual grand gathering in France on June 30, 2018, and gave them 500 grams of the explosive TATP in Luxemburg in late June. The statement added, Assadi was a member of the "Ministry of Intelligence and Security," whose tasks "primarily include the intensive observation and combatting of opposition groups inside and outside of Iran." It added that the German’s judiciary warrant would not hinder Belgium’s extradition request for the suspect.

Last month, Belgian authorities arrested a married couple of Iranian origin after it was discovered that they were in possession of 500 grams of the explosive TATP, which they intended to carry to Paris to inflict mass causalities at a gathering of Iranian dissidents held on June 30. The couple presented themselves as supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the principal constituent group in the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), but were actually Iranian intelligence operatives bent on attacking or undermining the Resistance

Terror Plot Reveals Iran Is Afraid Of Democratic Opposition But Not European Policy
On June 30, several European authorities thwarted an attack on the annual Free Iran rally organized by supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Considering that Assadollah Assadi, the intelligence station chief at the Iranian embassy in Vienna, was arrested along with two would-be bombers, it is abundantly clear that the plot was masterminded in Tehran.

World Tribune-U.S. officials ‘certain’ Iranian regime approved bomb plot against opposition rally in Paris
A terrorist plot to blow up a rally in Paris sponsored by an Iranian opposition group was approved by Iran’s ruling mullahs, U.S. officials and the sponsor of the June 30 rally said.
Belgian authorities foiled the plot when when they detained a couple with ties to Iran who had been given explosives by an Iranian diplomat based in Austria.
A Big Blow To Tehran’s Terror Strategy
Terrorism and oppression were the legacy of Khomeini left for his successors. As the Iranian resistance has emphasized right from the outset since the emergence of the Islamic Republic up until today, terrorism and suppression are the two main pillars for the regime ensuring its grasp on power. And to this end, Khamenei has been even more committed to this than Khomeini.
Iran’s terror plot centers on Europe
The aftermath of the Iranian regime’s failed terrorist plot
July 14, 2018 - In the aftermath of the Iranian regime’s failed terrorist attack against the great Iranian opposition convention in Paris, European law enforcement in Germany, France and Belgium are in the process of trying the Iranian regime’s terrorists in court for their involvement in the foiled plot. Meanwhile, the Iranian regime’s officials and state-run media are lamenting at the arrest of their operatives, especially their main agent, Assadollah Assadi, a diplomat in the regime’s mission to Austria, and they’re blaming the PMOI/MEK for their misfortunes.
Terror plots in Europe and winds of change in Iran
Al Arabiya,18 July 2018
Last month, Iran’s main opposition the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held its biggest rally in suburban Paris. The colorful event was in many ways different from preceding years as Iran continues to boil in dissent and protests spreading in far corners of the nation.
Maryam Rajavi, President of the NCRI in her address said: “A passionate generation thirsty for freedom has risen to take over the entire country and take back Iran from the occupiers. This is the Iranian nation’s fight. The regime’s overthrow is inevitable.”
What should be done about the Iran’s government-sponsored terrorism
On June 30, as thousands of Iranians and political figures from five continents convened at Paris for the annual Iranian opposition Free Iran rally, the Belgian police arrested a group of terrorists in Brussels. At the same time, the German police arrested Assadollah Assadi, an Iranian regime diplomat. Other undisclosed arrests took place in neighboring European countries, all linked to a complicated terror plot against the Iranian opposition gathering in Paris.
This is part of a broader confrontation between the Iranian opposition and the regime and has now assumed a much larger context.

They admitted Assadi had given them the bomb and instructed them to detonate it at the Iranian democratic opposition, PMOI (MEK) rally being held in Villepinte, near Paris, that weekend.
Washington uses foiled Paris bomb plot blamed on Tehran to change EU approach.
By MATTHEW KARNITSCHNIG
The U.S. is raising pressure on European allies to isolate Iran in the wake of a foiled terrorist attack in France last month that Washington believes targeted American citizens, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Administration officials are citing the failed bombing in their effort to push European governments to choke off Iran’s access to everything from their airspace to cash deposits, arguing that Tehran’s involvement in terrorist plots obligate America’s allies to take a much harder line with the Islamic Republic. It was a message President Donald Trump delivered behind the scenes at this week’s NATO summit in Brussels, according to people familiar with the meetings.

The Iranian regime’s plot to bomb the Iranian opposition convention – “Free Iran 2018” – in Paris was foiled two weeks ago. And yet the subject continues to gain international coverage and growing attention.
Liberation in France cited Agence France Presse on July 11th saying the French government will be extraditing one suspect to Belgium soon, adding an Iranian diplomat is in detention in Germany after a failed plot against the Iranian opposition. This dossier is now entering the new phase and yet specifics in this regard remain very vague.
Exposing the failed and coordinated terrorist plot aimed at attacking the Free Iran Rally in Villepinte, was a litmus test to demonstrate that the NCRI is the only viable alternative to the cleric regime of Iran and a great source of concern for the crises stroked Mullahs in Tehran. The terrorist gang in Belgium and France was preparing the attack on the peaceful gathering of the Iranian resistance with more than 100.000 attendees.
July 11, 2018 - Less than two weeks after the Iranian opposition convention in Paris where a massive crowd and a large number of international dignitaries joined to express their support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) coalition as the alternative for the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran, and the following foiling of a terror plot blueprinted by Tehran involving the arrest of an Iranian diplomat and five other individuals in Belgium, Germany and France, the U.S. State Department held a briefing on Tuesday specifically saying the Iranian regime is using its embassies “as cover to plot terrorist attacks.”
This briefing also covered meetings between State Department officials and their counterparts abroad.
July 11, 2018 - During his visit to the United Arab Emirates, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo referred to the Iranian regime’s terror plot against the Iranian opposition convention in Paris.
The Europeans understand the threat posed by the Iranian regime, he said, adding Iranians arrested last week in Europe were ready to carry out a terror bombing in Paris.
The United States has seen these devious measures in Europe and are well aware of Tehran’s threats, he said.
Iran’s regime has brought suffering & death to the world & its own people. Just in Europe, Iran-sponsored assassinations, bombings & other terrorist attacks have scarred countless lives. Hope the Europeans raised this with Rouhani & Zarif on their European tour.
Detained Iranian regime diplomat stands accused by Germany
July 11, 2018 - Germany is raising charges against an Iranian diplomat for his involvement in a bomb plot targeting the Iranian opposition convention in Paris on June 30th.
German prosecutors on Wednesday accused Assadollah Assadi with activity as a foreign operative and conspiracy to commit murder. Based in Vienna, Assadi is suspected of hiring an Iranian-Belgian couple in the northeast European country to stage an attack at the annual convention held by the Iranian Diaspora expressing their support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its pillar member, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Iranian regime’s terrorist plot to attack Iranian Resistance Grand Gathering in Paris was foiled
The conspiracy of the terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran to attack the Grand Gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Villepinte, Paris was foiled. The mullahs’ regime’s terrorists in Belgium, helped by the regime’s diplomat terrorists, had designed for the attack.
A woman and a man involved in this terrorist act were arrested by the Belgian police. The woman had come from Iran to Belgium in 2009. In this regard, an Iranian regime’s diplomat has been arrested in Germany.
Iranian Resistance had repeatedly warned before about the terrorist preparations by the so-called "diplomats" of the regime and the mercenaries of the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and the Quds Force in various European countries.
Wilrijks Couple Was Sleeping Cell For Iran
According to the security services, the Wilrijk couple who wanted to make an attack in Paris were sent to Europe as spies by the Iranian regime.
Amir S. (38) and his wife Nasimeh N. (33) were required to apply for asylum and to keep quiet for years as a ‘sleeping cell’. That they were threatened and put under pressure by the Iranian regime is no longer believed by the security services.
Contemplating the Iranian regime’s recent terror plot
June 7, 2018 - The authorities of Belgium, France, and Germany were recently involved in foiling a new plot blueprinted by the Iranian regime and intended to target an Iranian opposition convention held in Paris on Saturday in support of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) coalition. Investigations continue reportedly.
Asdollah Assadi, Iran’s diplomat in Austria who ordered the terror attack, was arrested in Germany
A terrorist diplomat of the clerical regime by the name of Asdollah Assadi, who was the main planner of the terrorist plot against the great gathering of Iranians in Paris, was arrested in Germany. The terrorist diplomat, who is the station chief of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) in Vienna, has been stationed in Austria since August 2014.
The two arrested terrorists are Amir Sadoni and Nassim Nomeni and are residents of Antwerp.
Prior to Asadollah Assadi, an individual by the name of Mostafa Roudaki was the MOIS station chief in the regime’s embassy in Austria. Roudaki was transferred to Tehran and was subsequently dispatched to Albania in 2017 as the MOIS station chief there to plot against the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.
The Iranian Resistance once again reiterates the need to shut down the Iranian regime’s embassies and representative offices in Europe as centers of espionage and terrorism and expel the agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and the terrorist Quds Force from European countries.
Iranian diplomat to be stripped of immunity over Belgium terrorism plot
An Iranian diplomat identified as Asdollah Assadi will see his diplomatic immunity lifted by Austria following his suspected involvement in a terrorist plot in Belgium that planned to target the annual Iranian opposition convention held Saturday near Paris, according to various outlets.

Earlier this month, two Iranian suspects and an Iranian diplomat were arrested for their participation in the plotting of a terrorist attack in France against the main Iranian opposition. They were planning to let a bomb off at the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI) annual Free Iran rally.
Prosecutors in Belgium say that when the couple was arrested in Belgium, they were in possession of TAPT – a homemade explosive that is often used by terrorists. They were also in possession of a detonation device.
