Speech by Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance at the Council of Europe, 26, January 2015
Three weeks after the tragedy that unfolded in Paris on January 7, the world remains in a state of shock and horror.
The massacre of journalists at their office desks, shooting defenseless civilians, executing the injured, taking hostages, terrorizing ordinary citizens, and justifying the commission of crimes against humanity under the banner of Islam have all wounded the conscience of the world. The spirit of Islam rejects these actions with utmost repugnance.This kind of terrorism and barbarism was first initiated, several years ago, by Khomeini’s fatwa to kill the writer, Salman Rushdi, and publishers and translators of his book.

NCRI - The Iranian Resistance calls on all human rights bodies and organs,UN Special Rapporteur on torture and Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, and the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran to take urgent action to save the lives of political prisoners Asghar Qatan and Ahmad Daneshvar Moqadam who are in critical condition because of being denied necessary medical services.
Women are one of the main victims of the religious extremism and human rights abuses rife in Iran, the UK representative of the National Council of Resistance (NCRI) said in an interview.
Sharia law and the regime's oppression of women has nothing to do religion or with God and is not in line with international norms and conventions, Dowlat Norouzi said in an interview with Council of Europe TV.
Militia affiliated to the Iranian regime must be evicted from Iraq in the wake of a genocidal attack on Sunnis by Shi'ite killers linked to the regime's terrorist Qods Force, a leading MEP has demanded.
The United Nations must also condemn the crimes of the Iranian regime and its militia in Iraq and Syria and refer them to the International Criminal Court, European Iraqi Freedom Association president Struan Stevenson said.
A US Senator has said America must demand complete nuclear disarmament by Iran during talks with the regime - which he branded a 'radical, Islamist tyranny' that has been killing Americans for more than three decades.
The US Congress must either approve any new nuclear deal with the Iranian regime, or impose new sanctions if talks fail, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton insisted.
The West must not form an alliance with Iran - the world's leading sponsor of state terrorism - in the war against Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East, Lithuanian lawmaker Egidijus Vareikis has demanded.
And Europeans who believe Iran could play a temporary role in the conflict are 'opportunists who are a disgrace to European values', he said.
Maryam Rajavi: Prosecutor Alberto Nisman is a martyr for peace and humanity and not just a martyr of the Argentinean people
In particular, he is considered a martyr of the Iranian people and resistance against the religious and terrorist fascism ruling Iran
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, speaking about the Argentinean prosecutor Alberto Nisman, assassinated on the verge of a hearing at the Argentinean parliament in the fight against state sponsored terrorism, the religious fascism ruling Iran, and collaborations in this regard, said: Dr. Alberto Nisman is not just a martyr of the Argentinean people, but a martyr for peace and humanity in the fight against terrorism.
NCRI - In an anti-human crime in mid-January and by the orders of Hadi Ameri, the Iraqi forces and the criminal militias stationed in Camp Ashraf resorted to destroy the Pearl Cemetery in Ashraf along with its memorials, symbolic statues, walls and even the grave stones.
Since 2012 and on various occasions, the Iraqi forces used to destroy parts of the cemetery, but despite repeated protests by the residents’ representatives to the United States and the United Nations, they took no effective measures to prevent this repulsive crime.
As U.S. Senate leaders weigh tighter sanctions against the Iranian regime, U.S. Treasury officials testified that the regime’s ability to produce oil is severely curtailed.
U.S. Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen testified before a session of Senate Banking Committee on the effectiveness of existing sanctions, saying Iran is exporting less than half of the oil it was in 2012 and only to six countries.
