West fomenting widespread resistance to the Iranian regime? Furthermore, is the
West promising Iranians something it will never deliver? Those are the
accusations made by an increasingly desperate-sounding Iranian regime, in this article
from state-controlled Kayhan.
En masse, ordinary people from
all walks of life poured onto the streets of Tehran on Wednesday to protest the
shameful events that took place during Ashura Day anniversary ceremonies.
This massive demonstration followed spontaneous rallies by millions of other
rank-and-file Iranians across the country on Tuesday.
The instigators and planners
of the Tehran riots on Ashura Day must reexamine their grasp of the aspirations
and depth of belief of the Iranian people.
AFP News conducted an
exclusive interview with the head of the infamous terrorist group, Mujahedine
Khalq Organization [People's
Mujahedin of Iran or MKO], Maryam Rajavi, who proudly admitted
to her terror network’s involvement in planning, fomenting and directing the
sacrilegious and wanton destruction of public property by a small number of
But then again, in a country
in which the terrorist group she's associated with is viewed with the utmost
abhorrence, Rajavi’s ravings are neither here nor there. There is no support base
for a terror grouplet with the blood of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary children
as well as the blood of people of a dozen countries on its hands - be they
Western or Eastern.
However, Iranian authorities did
mention the involvement of MKO in the Ashura Day violence and now, at least, there
can be little doubt about the ruthless instigators of such unnecessary and
pointless bloodshed, particularly on one of Shiite Islam’s holiest days.
There's no denying that a
small number of our flock of faithful have been led stray by Western daydreams and
promises built on the very foundations of cruelty and injustice. And this, just
as the materialistic forces of true evil have gathered in our resource rich
region, hell-bent on mischief and the destruction of our values.

But those who have strayed
from the flock - no matter how small in number - are being heartlessly used as
cannon fodder by the enemy to amass political capital. Their lives mean nothing
to the wolves that have separated them from us with idle promises of a future
that the wolf pack has reserved only for its own.
And let truth be told: We are
still far from the ideals that formed the value system of our popular
revolution all those years ago. Renewed effort and vigor is required to bring
our movement back up to speed. Faith, steadfastness, verve, patience and
tenacity are the required ingredients to see us all through this most bleak
chapter in the history of the Islamic world.
mass protests against the regime on Ashura Day, Tehran's
media is is sounding increasingly desperate.
We need to close ranks and
place our faith in the hands of the dedicated leaders who, through thick and
thin, brought us this far; most crucially, when the multitudes in the armies of
the foreign enemies and their black-hearted mercenaries are gathered like dark
clouds in the vicinity of our sacred land.
In our democracy, people may
choose to vote this way or that, but belief in our system is unshakeable. This
is a fact that has embittered and enraged traditional Western and Zionist
hostility toward Iran.
They've sought to rewrite our
glorious history and failed to prevent us from our God-given gift of shining
brightly like beacons of spirituality, lighting the path of humanity. They call
our undying belief in God, “Eastern mysticism.”
And even when their attempts
to assault this nation fail repeatedly, through what can only be described as
the mighty will of God, they still refuse to believe.
We need to reflect upon the
tragic loss of an entire generation of our youth, who gave their precious lives
selflessly and with open hearts on unforgiving battlefields to the struggle
against evil. These were sacrifices made even more difficult after they were
contaminated by the vengeful minions of satanic chemistry and biology.

Just look at the pomp,
ceremony and respect with which they bury their dead aggressors, and spare a
thought for row after row of the graves of our own righteous martyrs that may
In the war [the Iran-Iraq
War], we paid the most devastating price to lay the ground for a society worthy
of our children. It is every man, woman and child’s duty to refrain from
sinking to the lows that our Godless adversaries have descended to for mere
material gain. Our government, clergy, authorities, military, teachers and
civil servants must make a conscious and concerted effort to become role models
for the Islamic world as well as for non-Muslims. This is the least we owe to
the memory of the long line of martyrs that have fought to preserve our
