July 7, 2018 - To any observer, the game of chess is a game of wisdom, in which one player eliminates the other by making the right moves at the right time.
Since May 8, 2018, when the U.S. government declared its decision to pull back from the Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iranian regime has found itself in a position where every day, a new statement, action, or round of sanctions places it in “check” state.
- On May 8, at the same time it declared its exit from the JCPOA, the U.S. administrations imposed new oil and financial sanctions against the Iranian regime, slated to come into effect in 90 and 180 days.
- On May 10, as part of its anti-terrorism efforts, the U.S. added the names of six Quds Force operatives and three Iranian institutions to the list of sanctioned individuals and entities.
- On June 28, U.S. canceled the permit of selling commercial airplanes to the Iranian regime as well as an airplane that contains American-made parts, delivering another blow to the mullahs. At the same time, several large companies, including Airbus, Total and Maersk, declared their exit from the Iranian market.
Meanwhile, a look at what’s going on inside Iran shows how beleaguered the Iranian regime has become as the people of Iran are becoming more and more courageous in taking to the streets and protesting against the tyrannical rulers of their country.
- From the protests and strike of truck drivers to the Tehran bazaar
- From the protests of the victims of financial institutions to the protests of teachers and academicians
- From the protests and strike of taxi drivers to demonstrations by merchants and the retired…
These protests that erupt every day in every corner and city of Iran are the ultimate testament of the Iranian regime’s defeat from the people in their quest to achieve freedom and democracy. Behind all these events is the regime’s nemesis and opposition, a resistance movement that has stood up against the regime’s tyranny and has vouched for freedom and democracy since the first day.
This Iranian opposition movement, led and symbolized by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, has a platform for the future of Iran. It also has the organized structure to be able to rebuild Iran and bring it to prosperity.
The members of this Iranian opposition movement have a unified message and rally around the same flag, and have one slogan: “We can and we must.”
They have proven that when they come together, they can set aside any obstacle, and they see it as their undeniable duty to deliver the people of Iran from the clutches of the Iranian regime.
On June 30, thousands of members and supporters of the Iranian opposition gathered in Paris, France, to send their message to the world. Hundreds of politicians from across the world joined them to voice their support for the cause of freedom and democracy in Iran.
Today, the movement for regime change in Iran has found global proportions, from the streets of every city in Iran, to the streets of countries across the world. The Iranian people and their resistance movement are knocking down the regime’s pieces one by one. Check mate is not far off.
