The international community ought to help facilitate the demise of the mullahs’ regime in Iran in order to guarantee that Tehran does not become a nuclear weapons state, Sir David Amess, a Member of Parliament from the United Kingdom, wrote on Thursday.
“The undeniably weak nuclear deal is a step backward with respect to the type of concessions we could have gotten from Tehran if we had stuck to our guns. In that sense, it is a failure. But you can fail one test and still pass the entire course, and I remain hopeful that that will be the situation when Western policy, toward Iran, in particular that of American enters into new phases, especially after the end of the Obama presidency,” Mr. Amess wrote for Business Insider.
Maryam Rajavi: Today, images of atrocities perpetrated by ISIS arouse outrage among people around the world over the brutality of religious fundamentalists. Three decades ago, however, it was Khomeini who laid the foundations of this type of barbarism by massacring thousands upon thousands of Iranian youths after issuing fanatical fatwas.
At that time, the current Supreme Leader of the regime, Ali Khamenei, was the president and he publicly condoned the 1988 massacre by saying, “We execute prisoners and have no quarrels about it.” The regime's current President, Hassan Rouhani, was at the time the deputy to the acting commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces and a senior regime official.
The clerical regime in Iran hanged three prisoners on Wednesday in a prison in the city of Karaj, north-west of the capital Tehran
The three men who were all in their thirties have not been identified. The Iranian regime’s judiciary has said that the men were hanged after they served their prison terms.
The prisoner were hanged in Gohardasht Prison.
The U.S. has complained to senior Russian officials about the commander of the Iranian regime’s terrorist Quds Force recent trip to Moscow, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
The U.S. will also raise its concerns at the United Nations and pursue the matter through the Security Council. U.S. officials said they believe IRGC Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, went to Russia in late July to meet officials there in violation of U.N. travel ban.
“We’ve raised this travel (concern) with senior Russian foreign ministry officials and we’re going to raise it and address it further in New York,” Mr. Toner said Wednesday.
Iranian supporters of the main opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) living in Canada rallied over the weekend against human rights abuses and rising executions in Iran.
They declared their support for the political platform of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
Political prisoner Narges Mohammadi is in poor condition due to lack of medical care
NCRI - Political prisoner and human rights activist Ms. Narges Mohammadi remains medically uncared for despite her deteriorating conditions. Yesterday, following eight hours of muscle paralysis, she was transferred to a hospital outside prison. However, despite the insistence of the physicians that she needs medical care, she was returned back to Evin Prison while partially unconscious.
The United Kingdom should make any future economic relations with the regime in Iran conditional on “substantive and tangible” improvements in the human rights situation in that country, Lord Carlile of Berriew wrote on Wednesday.
“The alarming recent rise in executions in Iran, especially during the weeks following the nuclear deal between Iran and world's six major powers, is a matter of great concern,” Lord Carlile wrote in PoliticsHome.
“According to reliable reports from Iran, the regime's authorities have carried out more than 60 executions, some of them through public hangings, in addition to barbaric punishments such as amputation of limbs and eye gouging, in various Iranian cities since the nuclear deal was announced on 14 July 2015.”
NCRI - While the massive wealth of Ali Khamenei and other senior officials of the Iranian regime and the theft of billions of dollars by those affiliated to the regime are subject of talk all over Iran, the number of people resorting to selling their organs to make ends meet in Iran under the mullahs’ regime is escalating significantly.
While selling blood, kidneys and livers is now common in Iran, currently this market is witnessing a growing trend of human eyes being placed for sale, reports indicate (state-run Shahr-e Ara daily – August 11, 2015).
NCRI - A group of at least eight Iranian Christians were beaten and arrested last Friday in the city of Karaj while gathering for a worship ceremony in a house church.
The Iranian regime’s armed plainclothes agents raided the house church, insulted and beat the worshipers, and confiscated their books and pamphlets before transferring them to a van to be taken to a prison, according to the eyewitnesses.
The Iranian regime's "expansionist and interventionist" tendencies have become a cause of concern in the region, academics in Turkey say.
“Iran’s increased influence in Iraq, and its support of Syria’s Assad, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and Yemen’s Houthis as well as its cooperation with Shias in Pakistan and Afghanistan have become quite bothersome for countries in the region, and its peoples,” Mehmet Sahin, associate professor and vice chairman of the Ankara-based Institute of Strategic Thinking, told Anadolu Agency Wednesday.
