Unwarranted optimism by the West

by Mahmoud Hakamian

Blind optimistic can be extremely damaging when it prompts one to disregard ground realities. That is exactly what the situation is concerning the mullahs in Iran and the West, with the former sticking to its old, nefarious agenda and the latter seeing improvement and reform where none exists. The West including US President Barrack Obama appears to be reading too much into the sham election of so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani and the subsequent opening of nuclear talks. These developments have been viewed as reasons for optimism, to justify a soft approach towards the Iranian regime, when in reality, mullahs regime in Iran remains the enemy of global peace as it was 36 years ago when the fundamentalist Islamic Republic was established.

No concessions for the Iranian regime

by Dr. Antonio Stango

This February brings the 36th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, when Iranians bravely took to the streets across the country forcing the Shah out of power to end his oppressive rule. It was to be the dawn of a new era, of newfound hope and endless possibilities, but it all turned to dust with the establishment of a theocratic Islamic Republic under Ayatollah Khomeini.

IRAN: The gloves must come off

by Elisabetta Zamparutti 

The first theocracy of Iran was established thirty-six years ago, and political and social development of a vibrant and brave people started going down hill. This was a progressive nation and the revolution had a democratic desire behind it, but unfortunately, what has resulted is the repression of people, killing of dissidents, a right wing and fundamentalist power centre and the export of terrorism.

Legalising suppression of women

By Elaheh Azimfar

Iran’s parliament has approved legislation, which aims to criminalize any act of creating hindrance in the implementation of the suppressive plan of “Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice”. Anyone believed to be creating obstacles can be arrested, tried and imprisoned or fined.

The Iranian regime does not care for human rights, especially of women. Since its inception in 1979, the regime has treated women as second-class citizens under the garb of religion. The fact is that the ideology, which the regime adheres to, is fundamentally sexist. The Iranian mullahs’ interpretation of religion and laws has no place in the 21st century since it refuses to recognize women as equal citizens or respect their inalienable rights as human beings.

Why We Must Win Against Religious Fundamentalism

by Mahmoud Hakamian

For Mrs Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, Iran and the rest of the world can never be free, unless religious fundamentalism is tackled to the extent that it is no longer a threat for human lives.

Speaking at a conference at Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe (PACE),  three weeks after the Paris attacks, she highlighted the importance of that very same barbarianism to be studied in many respects, including the historical circumstances that triggered its emergence, the societal dynamics that facilitated its development and growth, the international policies that enabled the expansion of such a destructive force, and its fundamental incongruity with Islam.
