On the anniversary of Khomeini’s death, as is customary for the mullahs, Khamenei blamed the social discontent and the internal, regional and international campaign of the Iranian Resistance against terrorism and fundamentalism on the United States. These statements were made three days after the execution of Mr. Gholamreza Khossravi - of the Mojahedin -that has raised public rage and abhorrence inside Iran.
Khamenei said: PMOI “today participate in various meetings of U.S. Congressional committees. These seditionist elements that have killed people, killed dignitaries, killed senior clerics, killed scientists, killed politicians and made the explosions, they are there with them today”.
Khamenei underscored the challenges and the internal and external crises that imperil the mullahs’ regime and expressed his concern for social upheavals and the people taking to the streets, as well as the deepening schism at the highest levels of governance and said, “Another means is to foment rifts at the highest levels of governance. One of the things they do is this. They try to create schism and rift at the top of a system that is not with them. They attempt to create discord in the governance.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described today’s statements by Khamenei as vivid fear of the PMOI and the Iranian Resistance as the principal existential threat for the religious dictatorship. She noted: “The spite and resentment of this bloodthirsty mullah regarding the disclosure of the nuclear weapons project by the Iranian Resistance, turning the spotlight on the violation of human rights in Iran, and prompting Iranian people and the people of this region of the world against fundamentalism and religious fascism is quite understandable and bespeaks of mullahs reaching their end.”
Rajavi added: “Khamenei’s statements today is the other side of the coin of the massacre in Ashraf, the rocket attacks on Camp Liberty, the repeated requests by regime’s senior officials for the extradition of PMOI members in Camp Liberty, and the cruel execution of Mr. Gholamreza Khossravi for his loyalty to the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.”
