Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Iran, May 26, 2018 - The recent speech delivered by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Washington’s policy vis-à-vis the Iranian regime seems to be a historical development. In simple words, this is a major U-turn from anti-global policy to a policy in line with the world.
To this day, the West’s Iran policy delivered severe blows to the world over, going against the interests of the Iranian people, nations of the Middle East, Europe and beyond.
People in all countries that suffered from this regime’s assassinations, bombings and hostage takings. Moreover, this is a blow to all countries in which the Iranian regime has influence in, using their soil as its own backyard, to export terror and economic corruption.
Hasn’t Lebanon been taken hostage by the Iranian regime after the launched the Lebanese Hezbollah?
Haven’t the mullahs’ regime infiltrated into – and delivered blows to – the Palestinian movement, under the pretext of waging a war against Israel?
Hasn’t Afghanistan become a terrorist hub with Tehran’s support for Taliban and Al-Qaeda? Iran has for decades been providing cannon fodders for terrorist attacks across the globe.
Hasn’t the Iranian regime wreaked havoc across the Middle East?
In Syria, with half a million dead, more than 70,000 Revolutionary Guards elements are fighting the war and supporting Bashar Assad’s massacre.
Yemen, where the Iranian regime provides ballistic missiles to the Houthis to launch into Saudi Arabia. The people of Yemen were living in peace until the Iranian regime’s influence placed brother against brother.
Add to this slate Iraq, after years of deadly sectarian disputes, and Pakistan, and terrorists finding their way to Europe.
What goes unnoticed, however, is the fact that the Iranian people have suffered most from this regime.
- The 1979 revolution hijacked
- 1 million dead and 150 cities leveled after the IranIraq
War that Iranian regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini insisted on continuing
- Over 30,000 political prisoners executed in 1988, mostly PMOI/MEK members and supporters
- Thousands of tortured and executed youth during the past four decades
- A Resistance Movement that has been the target of Iranian regime attacks and global pressures
- A plundered nation, as each day we are witnessing people protesting and demanding their savings returned
- A country with over 90 percent of the population living under the poverty line, with many selling body parts such as kidneys, eyes and any other limb possible, just to make ends meet
- Dried lakes and rivers, and lands suffering from drought
- Unborn babies literally sold before birth
- Millions of drug addicts across the country
- 11 million unemployed individuals, especially among the youth and college graduates
The list goes on.
Who will history accuse?
Who is to blame for the status quo?
Could this be the correct answer?
Those who portrayed a reform-able image of this regime.
If yes, one must tell Washington they have acknowledged what the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) have been emphasizing for years.
If this change of thought had come years earlier, the PMOI/MEK would never have been blacklisted; hundreds of thousands, or even millions, would not be displaced and suffering from war, and …
It is time to listen to the Iranian people, in the streets day after day in various cities, seeking their rights from the murderous Revolutionary Guards.
They are chanting, “Death to Dictator,” “Reformists, principalists, Game Over” and “We will not rest until our demands are fulfilled.”
And listen to the message of the Iranian opposition:
- Overthrowing the mullahs’ regime is a necessity
- Overthrowing the mullahs’ regime is attainable
- There is an organized, democratic opposition to the Iranian regime.
