Sisters and brothers,
Greetings to all of you.
On the occasion of the momentous month of Ramadan, which is coming to a close, I hail all the sisters and brothers who have been fasting and praying.
At the start of Ramadan, I said that Ramadan was a month of solidarity with the people of Iraq, Syria and Iran who have arisen to liberate themselves from the clutches of the most ruthless dictatorship in the contemporary world.
This month is also a month of solidarity with the nations of Palestine and Lebanon, who have fallen victim to the betrayals of the ruling theocracy in Iran.
I express gratitude to all the personalities, parliamentarians, Muslim leaders and sisters and brothers who have joined us in this call.
Paris - Conference on “Religious dictatorship in Iran, epicenter of sectarian wars in the Middle East”:
• We condemn the bombing of Palestinian people. The massacre of civilians in Gaza distracts attentions from Iraq and Syria, benefits the Iranian regime, and should be ceased immediately
• Sending weapons by the Iranian regime to Iraq and Syria is violation of the Security Council resolutions. The international community should stop the mullahs from sending weapons.
• Cooperation between U.S. and Iranian regime in Iraq is a horrendous mistake. The sole way out of Iraq's crisis is the removal of Maliki, eviction of the Iranian regime, and the establishment of an inclusive nationalistic government
The speakers stressed that with the support of Western countries for Maliki and closing of eyes on his atrocities and by abstaining from actively supporting the Syrian democratic opposition, these countries have played the major role in the growth of extremism and terrorism.
On Saturday, July 26, in the conference of “Religious dictatorship in Iran epicenter of sectarian wars in the Middle East” in Paris, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, called the system of Velayat-e faqih in Iran as the party that under the banner of Islam emanates extremism and is the principal element in the calamities and crises imposed on the Islamic World in Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and elsewhere in the region.
The Association of Muslim Scholars in Iraq and the Iraqi tribes considered aggression against Christians in Mosul a crime against the innocent and a breach of the conduct by prophet of Islam and called that they be returned to their homes
Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, praised the stance of the Association of Muslim Scholars in Iraq in condemning aggression against the Christians of Mosul and described it as a responsible stance that challenges fundamentalism and religious extremism.
On July 21, the Association of Muslim Scholars in Iraq issued a statement stating that the forcible migration of Christians from Mosul by ISIS is a “crime against the innocent and going astray from the path advised by the prophet of Islam in treating Christians and other monotheists” and called for them to be returned to their homes. This statement emphasized: “Any property taken away from them is considered usurpation by the Islamic laws and should be returned to their rightful owners.”
supported efforts by President Mahmoud Abbas for an immediate ceasefire
Call on international community to act to end the bombing and shelling of innocent citizens
Following the ruthless bombing of Shujaia in Gaza, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, once again strongly condemned the bombing of innocent Palestinian people, especially the women and children, by Israel and offered the sympathy and condolences of the Iranian people and Resistance to President Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian people, and the wounded and the bereaved families.
She called for urgent action by the international community to stop the massacre and the attacks against civilians and to end the bombing and shelling.
