“Iranian regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini, sitting on the throne in Tehran, was determined to focus all power under his grip, unleashing his wrath against all Iranians,” Alavi writes, adding, “As he established his crackdown apparatus, Khomeini began setting his sights abroad, imposing his hegemonic desires through a doctrine of suicide attacks. The IRGC began training numerous proxy groups to help spread the Khomeini’s terror under the pretext of Islam.”

He maintains that Khomeini’s “ISIS” in Iran, some three decades before ISIS’s charge from Syria into northern Iraq, was the ‘nesting ground’ for many fledgling groups who now cause havoc across the Middle East, Europe, and as far away as Argentina.

Khomeini’s interpretation of a divine religion spread the ideology of an “Islamic Revolution”. He desired a Shiite empire, and to this end targeted potential countries like Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Bahrain, Yemen.

His campaign resulted in death and destruction across the Middle East. There have been over a million killed and hundreds of billions lost in the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s, according to Alavi, who also say that countless others were killed and injured in the aftermath of the 2003 war in Iraq, which Iran covertly occupied. He also points to the nearly half a million killed and over 11 million displaced from their homes in the Iran-backed war in Syria.

“All this has been parallel to Tehran’s spree of assassinations against dissidents exiled across Europe. Iranian intelligence service, using embassies across the Green Continent as safe houses to dispatch their killers, began eliminating exiled dissidents in a campaign dubbed as the ‘chain murders,’” Alavi writes. 

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, has ramped executions up at an atrocious rate. Alavi believes that not a day passes without at least one execution somewhere in Iran, and that even the “moderate” President Hassan Rowhani has seen nearly 3,000 executions during his four year tenure.

Yet probably the most atrocious act targeted an entire generation by massacring over 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988. Most of these victims were members and supporters of main Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Iran doesn’t tolerate freedom of speech, as Alavi claims that academics, bloggers and journalists are targeted by the regime’s crackdown apparatus. 

That the West will come to realize this true nature of Iran’s regime, is Alavi’s hope, because the international community’s failure to adopt serious measures has encouraged Tehran to continue hangings and escalate their involvement across the Middle East. Iran’s plan of establishing a “Shiite Crescent,” began decades before Daesh, and its onslaught in the Levant and Mesopotamia.

The result of the appeasement policy of the Obama administration, Iran was able to have influence over Assad with troops in Syria. This also encouraged Tehran to look further. “The victory in Aleppo will pave the way for liberating Bahrain,” said IRGC General Hossein Salami.

Alavi writes, “Rest assured one day the world will come to realize how ISIS considered Khomeini, the founder of the first ever “ISIS,” as its mentor on how to spread their reign of terror. No wonder the Iranian people consider the current mullahs ruling Iran, all minions of Khomeini, the Godfathers of ISIS.”

Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, an umbrella group consisting of various Iranian dissident groups, including the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), stated, “The regime in Tehran is the source of crisis in the region and killings in Syria; it has played the greatest role in the expansion and continuation of ISIS. Peace and tranquility in the region can only be achieved by evicting this regime from the region.” 

23 senior former American government officials advised in a hand-delivered letter to the administration of Donald Trump, to adopt a policy supporting the Iranian people’s call for regime change. 

The Iranian regime is worried about President Trump’s first position against radical Islamic terrorism. “We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth,” President Trump said.
