INU- To mark the beginning of the new Iranian Year last month, Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian Resistance, gave an inspiring speech to the people of Iran.
In our previous pieces, Maryam Rajavi said that she stood with the Iranian people and looked at how the mullahs have come under fire internationally in the past year. Here, we will look at how the mullahs have attacked the Iranian Resistance.
Maryam Rajavi said that the real issue faced by the regime is not an individual crisis. Indeed, the crisis is the Regime and the only solution is overthrow. Of course, the mullahs know this so they are doing anything to keep themselves in power; mainly demonising and destroying the legitimate opposition, which is Maryam Rajavi and the Iranian Resistance.
In 2018 alone, the mullahs planned:
• to bomb the New Year’s gathering of the Iranian Resistance in Tirana, Albania
• to bomb the Iranian Resistance’s Free Iran gathering in Paris, France
• conducted several terrorist and espionage schemes against the Iranian Resistance in the US
• increased their smear campaigns against the Iranian Resistance, using attack websites, propaganda movies, state-run media, fake social media accounts, and disinformation agents both in and outside Iran
Maryam Rajavi said: “Their terrorism and demonization efforts, however, were not successful. But in all honesty, they were truly successful in accomplishing one major task and that was to clearly show, hundreds of times, that their main threat and the alternative to their regime are the Mojahedin (the PMOI/MEK), the National Liberation Army and the National Council of Resistance of Iran.”
She explained that the Regime has been dreaming of taking down the Resistance for 40 years now. The mullahs though that the movement would die after then imprisoned thousands of Resistance members in the early 1980s or when they executed 30,000 in the 1988 massacre, or when they bombed the Resistance’s camps in Iraq in the early 2010s, forcing them to flee twice; once to another camp in Iran and the second time to Albania.
Maryam Rajavi said: “It was proven that [the Regime] will have to take those goals to their graves.”
Last year, the Liberation Army was revitalized and resistance units sprang up across Iran to aid the Iranian people in their uprisings. Now the people of Iran are expressing the positions of the Iranian Resistance at their strikes and protests.
Maryam Rajavi said: “The overthrow of the clerical regime is the desire and demand of all of the people in Iran. The Iranian nation in its entirety is demanding the overthrow of the regime.”
These resistance units did plenty of good work when it came to helping the strikes hit at the core of the Regime, with over 100 acts of protest every month in the past year
Maryam Rajavi said: “[It] was the year of the proliferation of the strategy of the Iranian Resistance, a year in which the prospect of the regime’s overthrow loomed large and the path and roadmap became even clearer. Yes, now, the Army of Spring is on its way, the army of spring with 100,000 flourishing roses.”
