BEHIND THE IRAN HEADLINES Series, November 1, 2023, Alireza Jafarzadeh, NCRI-US Deputy Director
Mr. Alireza Jafarzadeh, the NCRI-US Deputy Director, presents the elements of a decisive and practical policy to deal with the Iranian regime’s menace.
For over 40 years, the Iranian Resistance has insisted that the religious fascism ruling Iran relies on full-scale repression at home and crisis-making and warmongering abroad to ensure its survival.
Drawing from our extensive experience gained through a relentless, multi-dimensional struggle against the clerical regime for over four decades, we have consistently warned Western governments against appeasing Tehran while advocating for a trans-Atlantic decisive policy.
In addition to inflicting the highest human, political, and financial toll on the Iranian Resistance, the policy of appeasement has been the primary obstacle to overthrowing the regime, a prerequisite for establishing a democratic, secular republic in Iran. This repulsive policy has also, in effect, been the most destructive facilitator of the regime’s warmongering throughout the region.
But what does a decisive policy entail?
It entails an immediate end to appeasement, swift blacklisting of the IRGC in Europe, enforcement of these measures in the U.S., and recognition of the legitimate right of the Iranian people to resist the theocratic regime and the IRGC.
A decisive policy involves triggering the snapback of UN sanctions against Tehran and swiftly dismantling the regime’s influence network in governmental and non-governmental policy centers in the United States.
The head of the snake lies in Tehran. There is only one real solution to remove the cancer of oppression, terrorism, and Islamic fundamentalism. The Iranian people’s revolution, led by a democratic and anti-fundamentalism alternative fighting for over 40 years, is THE SOLUTION.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran is the alternative, and the 10-point plan of its president-elect, Maryam Rajavi, has provided both the roadmap and the plan for the future of Iran.
