NCRI - Two of Evin’s female inmates have asked foreign countries’ ambassadors not to partner with Iranian regime officials in their efforts to present a false good-looking image of Iranian regime’s prisons and prisoners.
NCRI - The Jordanian daily Al-Raay has written: "Perhaps one of the rare incidents is that the interests of the vast majority of the Iranian people meet the interests of the Arabs, and that is the need to overthrow the clerical regime”. This newspaper has added: “The Iranian regime is in fact the other side of ISIS coin, which uses religion and Devine belief as a policy for a police state”.
NCRI - Parliamentary Deputy of the Iranian regime’s president, Hossein Ali Amiri, in a conversation with Fars News Agency, affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, warned protesting banks depositors, who are the victim of the fraud and raids of thousands of banks and financial institutions of the regime, "Do not make advertising food for the alien media”.
Two years after the Iran nuclear deal, internal moderation of the mullahs' regime has proven elusive, and Tehran has shown no aptitude to reform from within, argues Professor Ivan Sasha Sheehan of the University of Baltimore.
In an opinion piece for the New York Daily News on Friday, July 14, Prof Sheehan wrote:
Professor Raymond Tanter argues that a new Iran policy is likely under the Trump administration: regime change from within, with pro-democracy Iranian oppositionists as core of a new policy.
Professor Tanter served as a senior member on the Middle East Desk of the US National Security Council staff in the Reagan-Bush administration, Personal Representative of the US Secretary of Defense to international security and arms control talks in Europe, and is now Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan.

NCRI - The security commission of Iran regime’s parliament in its second six-month report on Wednesday, June 12, 2017, on the implementation process of JCPOA announced: “Big banks are not dealing with Iran because of fears of the US sanctions.”
NCRI - A few months ago, United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave certification that Iran was complying with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal. The certification is required every 90 days and it will soon be time for the next one.
His predecessor, John Kerry, rubber stamped the certification but the current Secretary of State is hopefully going to take the opportunity to act. If he speaks up about Iran’s belligerence and its numerous violations of the deal it will pave the way for Congress to act.
NCRI - Earlier this month, a senior judicial official in the Iranian regime has publicly tried to justify the state’s execution of tens of thousands of political prisoners during the eighties.
In an interview with a state news agency affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the official - Judge Ali Razini, the head of Branch 41 of the Supreme Court – said that the execution of prisoners in 1988 in what has been named the 1988 massacre was “fair” and “lawful”.
NCRI - Several months ago, United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified that Iranian regime was complying with the terms of the nuclear deal. Tillerson is required to verify Iran’s compliance every 90 days. In April he declared that Iran was complying with the deal and stated that sanctions relief was essential for the national security interests of the country. Many other officials in the Trump administration disagreed with this.
NCRI - The myriad of crimes of the Assad regime in Syria would have come to an end years ago, if not for the fact the regime is propped up from outside by direct intervention of the Iranian regime, writes Prof Raymond Tanter.
According to reports, Iranian police forces in the city of Ahvaz (southwestern Iran) have arrested members of a family because of so called lack of "official" land titles, and have completely demolished their home on Tuesday, July 11, 2017.
