The Crises Facing Iran Regime

The Crises Facing Iran Regime

By Staff Writer

2018 was a challenging year for the Iranian Regime, from widespread anti-regime protests to international sanctions, both of which have done significant damage to the mullahs as we begin 2019.

These protests spurred US sanctions against the Regime, which only spurred more protests. It was like a perfect storm to destabilise the Regime. The Iranian Regime failed to address the demands of the protesters or the US, which is not surprising because it is simply not in the nature of the mullahs to abandon costly foreign wars or a nuclear weapons programme in order to help its people survive. So the sanctions and the protests grew all the more, eventually leading to other problems.

Last year was an important one for Iran, specifically for the Iranian people and their organised resistance forces, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), as anti-regime protests swept the country and the US ended its appeasement of the mullahs.

The Regime tried to suppress the protests and tried to resist the US sanctions, but have failed remarkably on both fronts. The protests still rage on and the sanctions have brought an already weak economy to its knees, both with the support of the MEK, who helped organise the protests through its over 1,000 resistance units in Iran and advocated for the West to abandon its appeasement policy.

Several countries entered into negotiations with Iran regarding its nuclear threat. It resulted in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), or 2015 Iran nuclear deal as it is known. However, it was far from able to neutralise the nuclear threat. In fact, it resulted in giving the Iranian regime the opportunity to work on an essential component – the delivery vehicle for a nuclear weapon.

Is Iran the World's Leading State Sponsor of Terror?

Is Iran the World's Leading State Sponsor of Terror?

Text of speech by Struan Stevenson, Coordinator for Campaign for Iran Change (CIC) in Human Rights Abuse, Repression and Terrorism, the Three Pillars of the Iranian Regime:

Could I thank the Frontline Media Club for holding this important meeting today. It is a great pleasure for me to be here.

I have been closely following the situation of Iran for nearly two decades. During my time in the European Parliament, I chaired the Friends of a Free Iran intergroup for 10 years. The intergroup consisted of many MEPs from different political groups and different countries. Apart from numerous articles, in 2014 I wrote a book about the Iranian opposition, ‘Self-Sacrifice’, which has been translated from English to French and German.

Complete Blacklisting of MOIS and IRGC, and Putting on Trial and Dismissal of Their Agents Is Essential to Prevent Mullahs' Terrorism in Europe

Iran-Complete Blacklisting of MOIS and IRGC, and Putting on Trial and Dismissal of Their Agents Is Essential to Prevent Mullahs' Terrorism in Europe

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, the Danish Foreign Minister, Anders Samuelsen, announced enacting sanctions against the security deputy and two agents of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) for its terrorist plots on European soil. These sanctions are a necessary response to prevent the continuation of the terrorist acts of this regime on the European soil, which must be completed by blacklisting the Ministry of Intelligence and the Revolutionary Guards in their totality, and by putting on trial and expelling the regime's intelligence agents and mercenaries. The ruling mullahs in Iran should know that their terrorist activities would have serious consequences.

Summary of the Past Twelve Months in Iran

The people of Iran’s desire for freedom, human rights, democracy and peace has been made very evident over the past twelve months. They have bravely spoken out against the clerical regime despite the high personal risk that this brings them. They have risked, and continue to risk, arrest, imprisonment, torture, detainment and even execution to make sure that their desire for regime change is heard.
