ATS - The removal of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki is a defeat for Tehran, said Maryam Rajavi, head of the Iranian opposition in exile, on Wednesday in Geneva. She expressed hope that the Iranian regime is now "completely ousted" from Iraq.
"The removal of al Maliki is a strategic defeat for the clerical regime in Iran," said the president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) at a meeting held at the UN headquarters in Geneva.
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance is in Geneva today attending an international conference at the United Nations' European Headquarters.
The Iranian Resistance is the only viable alternative to the 'tyrannical and unelected theocracy' ruling Iran, a leading US General has declared.
But while the regime is still in power, America must lead by example and stop rewarding Iran's 'lying' mullahs with the easing of sanctions and extended deadlines in the nuclear talks, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton said.
He wrote in Newsweek magazine: "Since the 1990s, Iran has hoodwinked the international community over its nuclear program time and time again. And the current round of negotiations seems to offer more of the same subterfuge, foot-dragging and recalcitrance.
The West has made the 'strategic mistake' of side-lining the Iranian Resistance and instead engaging with the Iranian regime in a fruitless bid to halt their production of a nuclear bomb, a leading Middle Eastern expert has told a conference in Paris.
Dr Walid Phares, professor and commentator on global terrorism and Middle Eastern affairs, also accused the international community of abandoning Iranian dissidents affiliated with the People's Mojaheidn Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) stranded in Camp Liberty in Iraq, which he branded a 'jail'.
This week marked the 26th anniversary of an underreported incident that took place over the course of three months in Iran in 1988. Between July and September of that year, an estimated 30,000 political prisoners were executed after trials before three person death panels seeking to weed out opposition to the Khomeini regime at the end of the Iran-Iraq War.
NCRI - British MPs, peers and human rights lawyers have united to demand an end to Iran's theocratic regime and protection for dissidents living in Camp Liberty in Iraq.
The dignitaries made the call during an emergency on the plight of Camp Liberty residents in the House of Commons this weekm Barnet Today reported.
