Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, on Saturday said Iran’s clerical regime is facing an “insoluble crisis” and the ruling theocracy has entered its final phase. “The upcoming presidential election has aggravated a power struggle and this internal crisis is accelerating its downfall,” Mrs. Rajavi said in a speech in an international conference in Paris. Mrs. Rajavi said the upcoming election is a sham since it only will allow candidates to run who support the regime’s violent theocracy. These individuals have no legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people and will be boycotted nationwide.
Maryam Rajavi called Iran’s mullahs the “epicenter of radical fundamentalism and terrorism” and said they are exporting warmongering and intervening in other countries in order to maintain power. The spread of fundamentalism and terrorism in the world, including Africa and Mali, she said, “is a tactic emanating from an Islamic fundamentalist ideology.”
“Without the export of fundamentalism, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards will lose its raison d’être and will quickly implode,” She said.
Mrs. Rajavi said radical fundamentalism, like other ideologies, cannot effectively spread globally without an epicenter and to uproot this evil around the world requires two yardsticks. First, Tehran, the “godfather of fundamentalism” must not be appeased and its “tentacles must be cut off.” Second, an ideological and cultural alternative, namely a tolerant and democratic Islam, similar to the Islam espoused by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), must be substituted.
