At issue is regime change
In a nutshell, the crux of the matter is over the word “regime change,” which involves the question of whether the regime should be uprooted in its entirety or one should collude and work with its internal factions.
At issue is whether to surrender to this regime or to wage resistance against it at any place and at any time.At issue is whether to betray the ideal of freedom or remain faithful to it.
Now, if you ask the mullahs, the IRGC, their accomplice and their likes, what the crime of the Resistance is, they would reply:
Its crime is that it said “no” to the concept of absolute clerical rule since the first day. And its greater crime is that it has not abandoned resistance and struggle against this religious dictatorship for even a second.
Yes, what constitutes a crime in the courts of reactionary ideology is in the eyes of the Iranian people an example of fulfilling national responsibilities toward an ideal with dignity and while staying true to one’s solemn promise.
So, as I have said on many occasions:If resistance for freedom and refusing to surrender is a crime, we are proud to have committed such a crime.
If commitment to fulfilling the rights of the Iranian people and being committed to international laws is a crime, then we are proud of it.
If embracing martyrdom, massacres and coup de grace shots with cuffed hands to achieve freedom is a crime, then we are proud of it and we are prepared for more. And, we are proud of Ashraf and its galaxy of martyrs.
Indeed, we are proud of the Iranian people’s army of freedom, and we are proud of Ashraf being multiplied. We are proud of and commend any step that any freedom-loving Iranian has been taking towards overthrowing the regime.
