Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Feb. 22, 2019 - The Iranian regime is experiencing its most dangerous state of crises in its international relations since the 1979 revolution. The Conference in Warsaw was an important turning point. Four elements make the regime extremely concerned about the consequences of the summit:
Consensus on the threat to peace and stability
After the anti-ISIS coalition this was the first time such an international consensus was reached on a challenge in the region. More than 60 nations agreed on the Iranian regime being the main threat.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo emphasized that not one country disagreed that the Iranian regime is the source of all mischief in the Middle East.
Mohammad Taheri, the regime's former ambassador to Poland, said on February 16, 2019, "The mere holding of such a conference and gathering the regional and global opponents of Iran is harmful to our security interests."
Ali Khorram, the regime's former ambassador to the UN said, "The nature and goal of the Conference in Warsaw was unprecedented in the past 30 years."
Ghassem Moheb Ali, a former Iranian regime diplomat, warned that the U.S. was trying to form a ground siege parallel to the economic blockade.
Firm U.S. policy on pressuring the regime with more sanctions
Both Pompeo and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence emphasized on the U.S. campaign of maximum pressure on Iran and that they wanted Europe to abandon support for the regime.
Pence said "The time has come for our European partners to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and join with us as we bring the economic diplomatic pressure necessary to give the Iranian people, the region, and the world the peace, security and freedom they deserve."
Europe not defending the regime against U.S. pressure
Although Europe has still not given up on trying to deal with Iran, the regime's record is so bad that no one can defend it. Europe is divided on the Iran issue. Poland was a co-host for the conference and Britain participated. None defended the regime at any stage of the conference.
On February 15, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in the presence of Iranian regime FM Javad Zarif that her country shared with the U.S. the aim of containing the damaging role of Iran in the Middle East.
The presence and active role of MEK, representing the alternative
The February 13 and 14 rallies held by the Iranian opposition (NCRI), and this coalition’s cornerstone member MEK, further proved their place in the canvas defining the future of Iran.
In an interview with BBC's chief foreign Zarif, the regime's foreign minister spoke more clearly about the source of regime's fear. He expressed his anger at Rudy Giuliani's speech at the NCRI gathering in Warsaw. He also attacked John Bolton, the U.S. National Security Advisor, and a firm advocate of regime change in Iran.
Ali Larijani, the speaker of regime's Majlis (parliament) said on February 17, 2019 that the U.S. was a tool at the hands of Mojahedin. This was largely received as a ridiculous statement, contradicting the regime's previous propaganda saying the MEK was a tool at the hands of U.S.
However, more clear than all was Mohsen Malakpour, Friday prayer imam of Farsan in revealing the regime's real source of fear when he said, “The Americans support the PMOI/MEK and hold sessions with them to have them replace our Islamic state.”
