In particular, he is considered a martyr of the Iranian people and resistance against the religious and terrorist fascism ruling Iran
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, speaking about the Argentinean prosecutor Alberto Nisman, assassinated on the verge of a hearing at the Argentinean parliament in the fight against state sponsored terrorism, the religious fascism ruling Iran, and collaborations in this regard, said: Dr. Alberto Nisman is not just a martyr of the Argentinean people, but a martyr for peace and humanity in the fight against terrorism. In particular, he is considered a martyr of the Iranian people and their resistance in their fight against fundamentalism and terrorism emanating from this regime. He valiantly stood up against the mullahs’ regime and exposed the dirty political and economic deals aimed at saving this regime from the great crime of the AMIA bombing and refused to give in to the repeated and escalating threats against him in the recent months.
Text of statement by Maryam Rajavi
Distinguished Elected Representatives,
Three weeks after the tragedy that unfolded in Paris on January 7, the world remains in a state of shock and horror.
The massacre of journalists at their office desks, shooting defenseless civilians, executing the injured, taking hostages, terrorizing ordinary citizens, and justifying the commission of crimes against humanity under the banner of Islam have all wounded the conscience of the world. The spirit of Islam rejects these actions with utmost repugnance.This kind of terrorism and barbarism was first initiated, several years ago, by Khomeini’s fatwa to kill the writer, Salman Rushdi, and publishers and translators of his book.
