The people of Iran are currently suffering under a fundamentalist government, which acts as a model for other fundamentalist groups to follow and has become the number one source for terrorism and war in the Middle East and around the world. However, there is a great solution to the Iranian regime and the problems that they cause, which is increasing support for Maryam Rajavi and the Iranian Resistance.
Maryam Rajavi is the president-elect of the Iranian Resistance, who opposes the fundamentalism of the mullahs and wants to bring freedom and democracy to Iran. In a statement published on her website, Maryam Rajavi makes it clear that the conflict between fundamentalism and freedom is not a matter of religion or an East v West situation. Instead, fundamentalism is the result of a dictatorship that subjugates and oppresses its people.
Maryam Rajavi makes it clear that this is in no way something that is inherent in the Iranian populace, the majority of whom have taken part in the nationwide uprising against the mullahs that began in December 2017, and then asks us to examine the misogyny that is at the heart of fundamentalist rule.
Maryam Rajavi wrote: “Indeed, why do more than all others, fundamentalists direct their vengeance and violence towards women? First, because their backward nature has rendered them misogynous. And second, during the 1979 revolution in Iran as well as in social movements in other Middle East countries, the fundamentalist were challenged and are being challenged today with an immense yearning for freedom and equality, which pivots around women’s emancipation.”
