The Media Express, September 22, reported that thousands of Iranian-Americans hailing from across the United States denounced the visit to the United Nations by the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani in a large and boisterous rally in New York on Tuesday Sept 20.
In a rally, organized by the Organization of Iranian American Communities in the U.S., the participants also urged the UN Security Council to investigate the gruesome massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran in 1988, seen as one of the biggest human atrocities since World War II. They called for the prosecution of regime officials directly involved in the crime against humanity.
Rouhani’s justice minister, Mostafa Pourmohammadi, recently proclaimed that he is “proud” to have been involved in the brutal killings.
Speakers at the rally included former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, the British Barrister and President of the UN Court for War Crimes in Sierra Leone Sir Geoffrey Robertson, QC, who compiled a report on the 1988 massacre and Pastor Saeed Abedini, who until recently imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith.
In her remarks, the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi said, “As long as the United States allows the leaders of a regime that Washington itself describes as the leading state sponsor of terrorism to set foot on American soil, and so long as the United Nations hosts them at the General Assembly instead of arranging for the ruling mullahs to face international tribunals for crimes against humanity, it means that they are standing against the Iranian people’s desire for freedom and democracy.”
She added that without the eviction of the Iranian regime “from Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, there is no conceivable end in sight for the crises in the region. Appeasing this regime and standing on its side is a policy that has harmed the entire world.”
French-language daily, Le Temps, the only nationwide newspaper in Switzerland published an article on September 21, about the subject of formation of the Committee 'Justice for the victims of the 1988 massacre Iran.' In the summer of 1988, 30,000 political prisoners were executed by Khomeini's fatwa. They were as young as 13 and as old as late 60's. According to Reza Malek, former Deputy Director of Research in Intelligent Ministry, the number of victims are higher than 30,000.
According to Washington Examiner, Sept. 23, the House passed legislation late Thursday that would prohibit the federal government from making any cash payments to the Iranian regime, in protest of President Obama's recently discovered decision to pay Iran $1.7 billion in cash in January.
And while the White House has said Obama would veto the bill, 16 Democrats joined with Republicans to pass the measure, 254-163.
Obama announced the huge payout to Iranian regime earlier, and said it was part of a settlement for a decades-old transaction for US military equipment that was never finalized.
But officials only recently admitted that the first installment of that payment was delayed in order to ensure Iranian regime released four US hostages, and that all three installments were paid in cash.
Bahrami said on September 22, that SSF commanders can act as agents of enjoining good and forbidding evil and turn themselves into examples for society.
Bahrami continued: Enjoining good and forbidding evil, in practice, is the only thing that can protect society, today. This endeavor should lead to people's becoming agents of enjoining good and forbidding evil, themselves.
One of the main issues of "enjoining good and forbidding evil" concerns women's way of dressing, wearing make-up, and covering their hair. (The state-run Arya news agency – September 22, 2016)
