NCRI – On Saturday, August 3rd, on the occasion of sacred month of Ramadan, representatives from Arab and Islamic countries along with representatives from Islamic communities in European countries warned against growing meddling of mullahs’ regime in countries in the region. They also underscored the need for solidarity against this regime that is the leading state sponsor of terrorism and main promoter of fundamentalism and religious dictatorship in today’s world and the most important factor in sowing discord and warmongering among Muslim.

 

Delegations from 30 countries in the Middle East and North Africa including, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen, Kuwait, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, and also from France and Italy participated in this conference that was held by the ‘Arab-Islamic Committee in Defence of Ashraf’.

Participants in the conference, which was concurrent with inauguration of mullahs’ new president Hassan Rouhani, reiterated that Rowhani who has passed through the filter of Khamenei’s Guardian Council, has been a copartner in all crimes committed by the regime. He shall never be able to change Iranian regime’s policies because any serious change would definitely lead to the overthrow of the regime in its totality. They stipulated that the regime change can only be achieved by its democratic alternative, meaning the people and their organized resistance.
The conference, presided over by Sid Ahmed Ghozali, former prime minister of Algeria and President of Arab-Islamic Committee in Defence of Ashraf, expressed its support for the residents of Ashraf and Liberty en bloc and asked for the returning of Liberty residents to Ashraf and providing their security.

In a message, Iraqi Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi referring to the missile attacks on Camp Liberty by the paramilitary forces affiliated with the regime of velayat-e faqih who are supported by Nuri al-Maliki’s government, said: “United Nations should have intervened and obligated Nuri al-Maliki’s government to either provide security and honorable life in this camp or should have completely closed it down and returned its residents to Camp Ashraf. Although the later choice is better practically, UN failed in taking any action whatsoever.”

In this meeting, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance called on all Muslims to come together in a united front against this regime and the terrorism and fundamentalism that it instigates. She said, “This regime is the enemy of all Muslims and all Arab and Islamic countries and the most formidable enemy of God and the people.”

 

“The followers of all religions and the followers of all faiths, from Shiites to Sunnis, the scholars and senior clerics of the Islamic world, political figures, tribal leaders, and leaders of political parties from all tendencies belong to this front, since this is a struggle against the enemy of the existence and being of all Muslims and all the people of the region,” she added.

 

Rajavi called the unity and solidarity against the velayat-e faqih regime as the most significant factor for neutralizing and eliminating the regime’s plots and said this regime should not be allowed to use sectarian religious divisions to put one side against another.

 

She added, “The brilliant battles of the nation of Syria and the uprisings of Iraqi people have cornered the reactionary and despotic front led by the clerical regime in Iran. Democracy in the region is the greatest threat to the velayat-e faqih regime in Iran. Nevertheless, until their overthrow, the mullahs will not abandon their meddling, provocation and warmongering throughout the region. The regime is trying to destroy every aspect of the democratic process in the region. Some mistakenly believe that the Iranian regime seeks to impose the domination of Shiites over Sunnis. In reality, however, the regime intends to expand its sphere of influence and hegemony in the region in order to preserve its own fragile grip on power in Tehran. To this end, the mullahs employ a variety of inhumane and deceptive tactics. For them, neither the blood of the Shiites, nor the Sunnis, nor any other human being has any sanctity.”

 

“Fundamentalism and tyranny under the banner of religion, which has been defeated socially and culturally as a result of the struggles of the Iranian people and their Mojahed pioneers, is now facing resistance in other countries of the region thanks to the arisen people of those countries. In such circumstances, providing an appropriate and worthy political, cultural and religious alternative to the religious dictatorship in Iran has become more of an imperative than ever before; A genuine solution which is able to completely push aside the model of fundamentalism and show the true image of Islam as a religion of freedom, justice, tolerance and equality. This is the interpretation of Islam that the PMOI believes in, and it is built on Islam’s truths. This is a model that advocates popular sovereignty and gender equality; it seeks separation of church and state and it calls for tolerance with respect to the followers of other religions; it defends human rights and seeks social prosperity and the advancement of knowledge and technology,” said the President –elect of the Iranian Resistance.

 

Rajavi went on to invite all Muslims across the world and especially the Arab and Islamic countries of the region to rise up in support of the freedom fighter Mojaheds in Ashraf and Liberty and said, “Holding this defenseless and refugee population in a killing field is tantamount to committing a crime, and they should be immediately returned to Ashraf where they would be safer.”

 

Maryam Rajavi underscored, “Since day one, in the face of regime’s new president, we have said the any real change requires freedom of speech, human rights, release of political prisoners, freedom of political parties, ceasing the intransigent policies in Syria and Iraq and abandoning the pursuit for a nuclear weapon. These are the criteria which the mullahs are incredibly terrified of. They are still on the same defeated path. Therefore, the solution to the Iranian issue and the path to obtaining peace, brotherhood and friendship in the entire region is the overthrow of the velayat-e faqih regime by the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance.”
