This afternoon at the mullahs’ Friday prayer congregation, Ahmad Khatami, a member of the Iranian regime’s Assembly of Experts, described protestors and dissidents in Iran as those who “wage war against God,” and said: “It is upon the Islamic leader” to “confront these people until their total annihilation.” He added, “In jurisprudence, these people are considered as Mohareb [waging war against God].” He urged the Judiciary to “firmly deal with leaders of the riots in order to teach a lesson to everyone else.”
The President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, cautioned the United Nations Secretary General, Security Council, and High Commissioner for Human Rights regarding the prospect of execution for the detainees of the recent uprising in Iran, and called for the referral of the Iranian regime’s dossier of crimes, in particular as it concerns human rights abuses and export of terrorism, to the UN Security Council. She also urged them to suspend diplomatic relations with the regime and impose comprehensive sanctions against it until a total halt to the crackdown.
She added: Since the ruling religious fascism in Iran has not been able to end the uprising by its cruel massacre of protestors, especially youth, women and students, it plans to execute defenseless prisoners to heighten the atmosphere of terror and fear. Mrs. Rajavi also said: The escalation of the regime’s infighting, in addition to the nationwide uprising of the Iranian people, signals the beginning of the end for the velayat-e faqih [absolute rule of the cleric] regime, and executions, suppression and massacres can no longer preclude the realization of the people’s will for change in Iran.
