On July 13, at the Free Iran gathering at Ashraf 3, Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian opposition gave an inspiring and moving speech about how the Iranian people and their organised Resistance forces would take back Iran from the mullahs. In this short series, we will look over Maryam Rajavi’s speech in full.
Previously, we looked at the history of the Resistance and where it is headed, but here we will look at how the Regime is disrupting the Middle East in order to attack or distract the world.
Maryam Rajavi said: “The regime is fuelling tensions in a bid to push back against the international community. They foment turmoil and chaos to hide their fear of being overthrown. They want firmness to be replaced with the policy of appeasement. And they want to allay fears and anxiety of their Bassij forces and Revolutionary Guards and to preserve their internal balance and equilibrium.”
The Regime is incredibly unstable and could not handle sustained “confrontation” from the West or any of its countries, so they seek to distract by, among other things, announcing the will to create “a young, Hezbollahi government”, as Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei did on May 22.
Maryam Rajavi said: “The reality is that schism and instability are among the signs that the regime is in its final chapter. The clerical regime is not going to find a way out of its inevitable downfall.”
Now, Regime apologists have a long history of appeasing the mullahs and ignoring its crimes at home and abroad, essentially protecting what Maryam Rajavi terms “the greatest sponsor and godfather of international terrorism”.
Maryam Rajavi said: “Instead of the regime, they targeted its arch-nemesis, namely the Iranian Resistance, levelling fictitious accusations against it. They blacklisted the Mojahedin instead of Khamenei’s network, and the National Liberation Army of Iran instead the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Of course, we proudly prevailed in more than 20 courts. They did not find even a single piece of incriminating evidence against the [Resistance]. This history is reminiscent of the ancient Iranian myth where the hero Siavash safely passes through flames of accusations against him.”
But now the tides are changing and the “obscuring curtains” are being peeled back and everyone can see that the Regime is the source of war and warmongering, who are certainly not protecting Iran from a future of war, turmoil and secessions following the overthrow of the Regime.
Maryam Rajavi said: “As the Iranian Resistance said from the outset, fighting against this regime is equivalent to seeking peace because it eliminates the source of war and turmoil… Now, everyone can see that so long as this regime remains in place, war and crises will continue and intensify in the region. Therefore, anyone who seeks freedom for Iran, anyone who wants to save Iran from destruction and chaos, anyone who wants global and regional peace and stability, must rise up to demand the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime.”
In our next piece, we will look at the lies of the appeasement policy and the Resistance’s historical mission.
