Iran is currently ruled by a fundamentalist theocracy that justifies its malign hold over the magnificent country with a mixture of anti-Western sentiments and a false interpretation of Islam. The Iranian Regime, which for the past 40 years has been a model for fundamentalist groups to follow, is the number one source for terrorism in the Middle East and indeed the world.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. There is a new, better leader for Iran who is already fighting to bring freedom and democracy to the nation. Her name is Maryam Rajavi.
Maryam Rajavi is the leader of the Iranian Resistance and she has been fighting fundamentalism in Iran since the mullahs first stole power during the 1979 revolution.
Maryam Rajavi said: “The Iranian regime is the founding state for most of the atrocities and evil which fundamentalist groups have perpetrated and are perpetrating by using the mullahs’ rule as a role model… The Velayat-e faqih regime [is] the godfather of terrorism, the enemy of Middle East nations and the primary threat to global peace and security… Indeed, the Iranian regime serves as the founder, the patron and the guide for fundamentalism in the world today.”
Maryam Rajavi advises us that fundamentalism is not some sort of Middle East v. The West or Sunni v. Shiite or Islam v. Judaism and Christianity war. Instead, the war is between freedom and subjugation. That’s why Maryam Rajavi would eliminate fundamentalism in Iran as soon as she takes power. It is the only way to truly bring freedom to Iran and peace to the Middle East.
Maryam Rajavi said: “Bringing down this regime, which acts as the godfather of ISIS, is an urgent imperative, not only for the Iranian people but for the Middle East region and the world at large.”
When does Maryam Rajavi take power?
Maryam Rajavi is already the president of the Iranian Resistance and is the president-elect of Iran for the six-month transitional period. Maryam Rajavi will assume power as soon as the mullahs are overthrown by the people, which might be any day now, and rule for a six-month period where she will establish a constitution and set up free and fair elections for a national assembly.
Following the elections, having transferred the power in Iran to the Iranian people, Maryam Rajavi will step down and allowed the next president to take control.
What will the constitution look like?
Maryam Rajavi’s constitution will be based on her ten-point plan for a free Iran, focusing on democracy, equality, and rule of law, which is based on her interpretation on Islam as modern and democratic. Let’s look at it now:
1. Political legitimacy is derived solely from free and fair elections
2. Respect for all individual freedoms
3. Ban on the death penalty
4. Separation of religion and state
5. Complete gender equality in all areas
6. Justice system based on rule of law
7. Commitment to the Universal Declaration on Human Rights
8. Equal opportunities for all in employment
9. Peaceful coexistence with other states
10. A non-nuclear Iran
