Now Iran’s a state ‘contemplating’ terrorism?

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has warned about Iran’s ‘increasing willingness to contemplate’ terrorism around the world. He cited an attempt to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US, plus alleged involvement in recent attacks in New Delhi, Georgia and Bangkok.

Increasing willingness to contemplate – is that what they call it nowadays?

What about all the opponents assassinated over all these years whilst they went about their business as usual. Any serious opponent of the regime will have stories to tell you – from phone calls we have received threatening us with death to our loved ones being interrogated, threatened and imprisoned in Iran due to our activities as a way of exerting pressure.

The well known cases of assassinations abroad are that of Shahpour Bakhtiar in Paris and the Mykonos four in Greece where a German court found the regime directly responsible for the murders. But there have dozens more. Most will not know of the assassinations of Gholam Keshavarz in Cyprus or Fereydoun Farokhzad in Germany because of the cosy relationship western governments have had with Iran.  And it continues to this day.

In 2010, Daryush Shokof was abducted in Germany and beaten and threatened for 13 days by the regime’s agents. Of course nothing was done.

That same year, Babak Shadidi, a member of the Worker-communist Party of Iran, confessed and thereby foiled an assassination attempt on my party’s leadership. Again nothing was done. [Read more…]

No to economic sanctions, war threats, and war! Revolution against the Islamic regime of Iran!

The below is a press release of the Worker-communist Party of Iran dated January 26, 2012 on the threats of war and economic sanctions.

It says:

The real way to fight poverty, misery, threat of war, and the whole present hazardous situation is the expansion of the struggle against the Islamic regime in all arenas, as well as overthrowing the regime by the people’s revolution and overtaking the running of society by the workers and people themselvs. With all its might, the Worker-communist Party of Iran fights for realizing this. WPI will firmly stand against all attempts to support the Islamic regime on the pretext of economic sanctions and war, or to legitimize the Western governments’ scenarios of a change from above.

It’s not rocket science: you can be against war on Iran and also the regime and its nuclear bomb!

Sections of the far-Right in the Israeli government and US administration as well as some western states have started threatening war on Iran over the nuclear issue. The Islamic regime has in turn threatened back. War or any Israeli government military action will only benefit the most reactionary elements in the west and Israel on the one hand and Islamism on the other. It’s the populations at large which will lose – from the people of Iran to those in Israel, Palestine and Syria amongst others. [Read more…]
