Khamenei’s Rep. Publically Threatens with Nukes


Following a new deadlock in the nuclear negotiations with the West, the Iranian regime is becoming increasingly desperate and threatens the West to push for one-sided concessions. In his Friday prayer sermon, Abufazel Razavi Ardekani, the Supreme Leader’s representative in Shiraz made belligerent statements about changing Khamenei’s fatwa regarding the production of nuclear weapons, rendering decades-long false hopes in the West futile. 

Ardekani said: “The fact that the Supreme Leader issued a fatwa that Iran will not approach nuclear weapons is only valid for these times! At some point, the leader may consider it advisable to say no! In our jurisprudence, sometimes it is permissible to pour poison into the river to strike the enemy. If there is only one path to victory, then let it be. Yes, nuclear weapons are prohibited as long as they don’t use them. But if they use nuclear weapons, do you think we will stand idly by?”

“The leader may give an order to enrich uranium up to 90%. The leadership is mindful of when and how to issue a fatwa. The fatwas of our officials with secondary titles are not permanent. This is the difference between primary and secondary fatwas. In secondary decrees, the Supreme Leader might issue a ruling that may be valid for ten years. Then he might violate that ruling but it will also be based on jurisprudential principles. That means Muslims must become as strong as they can so that the enemy would fear us.”

Maryam Rajavi: End Impunity for the Most Dangerous Terrorist State

Maryam-Rajavi-End-impunity-for-the-most-dangerous-terrorist-state-1024x683-1I send you my sincerest greetings. And I express my respect and gratitude to every one of you.
You are the friends of the difficult days the Iranian Resistance has endured. Your courageous positions have always impacted the fight against religious fascism, which unfortunately has the support of the appeasers in the West. The regime will continue its repression, terrorism, and its quest for nuclear weapons until the day it is overthrown.
For many years, Western governments claimed that they appeased the clerical regime to support the moderates. Of course, we said from the outset that moderation in the ruling religious dictatorship is a big lie.

It is also worth mentioning that the decrease in the number of protests is related to the latest floods, the excessive heat in many provinces, and the closure of schools and universities.

Often, the people have targeted the major regime officials in their protests. They chanted slogans against the regime’s president Ebrahim Raisi, the parliament speaker Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, and Mohammad Mokhber, Raisi’s first deputy, because of the miserable living conditions and the delay in the payment of their wages. In the protests, the presence of women has been significant.
