The “Free Iran” gathering was also featured on Arab-language television channels such as Al-Arabiya, Al-Hadath, and Sky News Arabia, broadcasting Rajavi’s message throughout the Arab world.  

Given that over the past year it was once again proven that no solution exists within the regime, as both factions failed to find a way to preserve it, Mrs. Rajavi declared that the solution offered by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, namely the overthrow of the ruling theocracy, is the most viable one.

Although it was believed that the nuclear deal with the US would bring peace to the region, instead “it brought barrel bombs, and unleashed 70,000 Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) members on the people of Syria; it resulted in ethnic cleansing of Sunnis by the terrorist IRGC Quds Force in Iraq; and it led to the spread of extremism under the banner of Islam in the whole region.”

She pointed out that both the mullahs and Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) espouse a similar ideology, which has little in common with the teachings of Islam. She added, “They have a similar modus operandi when it comes to barbarity and savagery. They need to rely on one another to survive. For this reason, so long as the regime’s occupation of Syria, Iraq and Yemen continues, we cannot confront Daesh effectively,”

Mrs. Rajavi criticized the U.S. policy on Iran and the Middle East, saying that it has “jumped from one mistake into the next.” and that it is, “enabling the religious dictatorship.  This policy has brought calamity to our nations and crisis to the U.S.” 

It’s not too late, according to Mrs. Rajavi, who believes that policy can be corrected through the right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious dictatorship and attain freedom and democracy. She concludes that, “This solution does not only benefit the Iranian people; it also amounts to a breakthrough for the region and for the world.”
