Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, congratulated people of Egypt for the fall of the dictator and victory of the uprising and democracy in their country. By expressing her warmest greetings to those who took part in the uprising, especially the Egyptian women and youths, she added: This victory is the worst news for the Supreme Leader of the clerical regime in Iran and the best news for peoples of Egypt, Iraq and Iran.
She said that the regime, which is extremely frightened of the rise of freedom movements in the region, is making every effort to take advantage of the uprisings and divert them towards Islamic fundamentalism and serve its own interests. This was clearly evident in Khamenei’s Friday sermon on February 4.
Addressing the people of Egypt, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance said: In order to guarantee the continuation of the Egyptian people’s movement for establishment of a democratic state, it is absolutely necessary that the political parties, personalities and groups as well as people of Egypt to disavow the clerical regime, stand firm against any interference by the regime and do not allow their uprising to be diverted and their democracy to be taken hostage.
