A grand July 9th rally in Paris became a major platform calling on the international community to begin shifting its Iran policy, according to an article published in the Arab News on Tuesday.
"The regime of Tehran has no place in the future of Iran and the Middle East, and the West’s flawed appeasement policy vis-à-vis the mullahs has failed, leading to Iran’s expansionism across the region. Imperative now is unity among Middle East countries against Tehran and in support of the organized Iranian opposition, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its President-elect Maryam Rajavi," wroteA Shahriar Kia, a spokesperson for Camp Liberty residents, members of the main Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK).
Operation Decisive Storm, aimed at preventing the Iranian regime’s expansion into Yemen, forced Tehran's leaders “to drink the nuclear poison,” said Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian opposition, Arab News reported on Monday.

The former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich has lashed out at US government policy in Iran saying Washington was "giving money to a leading state sponsor of terrorism," the International Business Times reported on Saturday.

The Iranian Resistance is holding today its annual "Free Iran" gathering in Paris. Since the morning thousands of Iranians have been pouring in to France's famous Bourget hall. Coaches are lining up the venue’s main entrance bringing in crowds from across the continent. At this early hour, many of the international dignitaries have already begun to arrive.
Former White House director of public liaison Linda Chavez writes today: "Islamic terrorism has become the single biggest threat to stability in the world. Attacks killing many hundreds have occurred over the past 18 months in Bangladesh, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Egypt, Kenya, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, France, the United States and elsewhere. But fighting this threat will require more than drone attacks to take out leaders of groups such as the Islamic State -- or even full-scale assaults to recapture territory claimed by the terrorists, as we did recently in Iraq."
NCRI - In the biggest gathering of its kind, thousands of Iranian dissidents — and no shortage of former high-level American officials from both sides of the aisle — will converge in Paris on Saturday for a giant rally calling for the downfall of Iran’s theocratic government, The Washington Times reported on Friday.
The Washington Times interviewed Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
NCRI - The former Democratic Senator from Michigan, Carl Levin, has made a statement expressing his support for the “Free Iran” rally this weekend.
The gathering, due to be held in Paris on Saturday, July 9, will expose the ‘moderate’ Iranian regime for what it really is; a horrific, brutal dictatorship, which tortures its own people, destabilises the Middle East and continues to test nuclear weapons in spite on a UN resolution and last year’s nuclear deal.
