Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance congratulated the Libyan people and all of the regions’ nations on the overthrow of the Libyan dictator and the victory of the uprising Libyan people and the Libyan Liberation Army, describing this as a great development towards democracy in the region. The Libyan people’s victory will bring new force to revolts throughout the region, she stressed, especially the uprisings of the heroic Syrian people and Iraqi nation.
“Libya’s revolution and its victory have more than anyone terrified the Iranian regime and its velayat-e faqih,” Mrs. Rajavi added. “Khamenei and the regime’s other senior officials have during the past months continuously opposed and stonewalled this uprising, as they have hysterically expressed their enmity against the Syrian people’s uprising and actively interfered and taken part in that country’s ongoing oppression.”
“After the dictators in Libya and Syria, the mullahs ruling Iran are the main losers of these nations’ uprisings,” Mrs. Rajavi continued. “Seeing the fall of their regional allies, the mullahs are extremely terrified of the effects of these uprisings inside Iran in the expansion of popular protests throughout. During the past 30 years, the mullahs have financed tens of billions of dollars on establishing such an alliance and their main tool in exporting terrorism and fundamentalism in the region, and instigating crisis and blackmail in the international stage.”
