The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran condemns the flogging sentence issued for a young Kurdish female student and calls on the Iranian women and youth to protest against such criminal verdicts.
The NCRI Women’s Committee urges international human rights and women’s rights organizations to undertake effective measures to stop such cruel and inhuman punishments.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has a long history of using international proxies, paramilitaries, and terrorists to attack their enemies while keeping their hands clean.
It dates back to the early days of the Regime- under Ruhollah Khomeini- as a way of minimising risk to the Regime while still striking their targets, especially after the Iran-Iraq war when the Iranian Regime suffered heavy casualties. It is a strategy for regional dominance that doesn't risk the lives of Regime members.
NCRI - The US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said that she has "irrefutable evidence" that the Iranian Regime is violating UN restrictions and will present her findings at a press conference today.
The US mission to the UN said:"Ambassador Haley will offer irrefutable evidence that Iran has deliberately violated its international obligations and has tried and failed to cover up these violations."
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is one of the leading cyber security threats to the United States, having conducted several highly damaging cyber-attacks so far, and experts believe it will only get worse.
Unlike many other US cyberspace adversaries, the Iranian Regime openly recruits hackers and supports their independent cyberattacks against enemies of the Regime. This includes not just enemy states but also dissidents, human rights activists, and journalists.
NCRI - Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif recently wrote a threatening op-ed for the New York Times, warning European countries not to put pressure on Iran regarding its ballistic missile programme or support for terrorism and blaming the US for problems caused by the Regime.
He cautioned: “As the nuclear deal and the Middle East enter uncharted and potentially combustible territory, it is imperative that Europe helps ensure that we don’t soon find ourselves repeating history.”
NCRI - Yet again, infighting among the different factions of the Iranian Regime has made headlines across the world, but most of these headlines are focusing on the wrong thing.
The well-publicised argument between Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani and his brother, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani is not notable because of what they are fighting about but because they are fighting in public.
NCRI - Two senior Republican lawmakers are pushing for sanctions on the Iranian Regime based on their destabilizing actions in Yemen as the House of Representatives prepares to vote this week on legislation designed to crack down on Iran’s financing of terrorism and terrorist groups.
Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida) and Ted Poe (Texas) - both senior members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee- introduced a bill to sanction the Iranian Regime for its support for the Houthi terrorist group in Yemen. The Iranian Regime’s involvement in the Yemeni Civil War has included supplying the Houthis with advanced weapons systems- via the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) - that they have used to attack Saudi Arabia and other US interests.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has two pillars that keep its façade upright while it crumbles elsewhere: domestic repression and the export of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and their militant Quds Force, led by Qassem Suleimani, who is responsible for the IRGC’s extraterritorial operations, are the main parties responsible for this.
Some in the West are fooled by this and the so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani who tells them not to pay attention to what goes on behind the curtain, but let’s take just a small peek behind that curtain.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is still a major sponsor of regional terrorist militias and has planted proxy forces in several key areas in order to spread chaos, sectarianism and extremism, according to participants at an annual international security conference in Bahrain.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister, Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmad Al Khalifa, told attendees at the Manama Dialogue 2017 that the Iranian Regime had a “network of surrogates” ready to commit acts of violence and destruction across the Middle East, West Africa, and Latin America.
NCRI - Roughly 66,000 people in Iran have HIV and almost half of them are unaware, according to estimates by the Iranian Regime, but as the Regime routinely underreports statistics that make the country look bad, it is likely this number is much higher.
For instance, in 2009, the World Health Organisation estimated that there are over 100,000 AIDS sufferers in Iran out of an 80 million population. HIV develops into AIDS overtime, meaning that the number of HIV sufferers is likely much higher than 66,000.
