Iranian Painter Sculptor: Stop crime against humanity

Iranian Painter Sculptor: Stop crime against humanity, Remove MEK from FTO list

As a painter and sculptor with non-religious and secular outlook, I joined National Council of Resistance of Iran, which was founded by Mr. Masoud Rajavi in 1981, that is a political coalition composed of many political organizations and personalities of Iran. For last 30 years, I have cooperated closely with all organizations and political personalities of NCRI on many political projects during different and difficult phases that this resistance movement of people of Iran has been going through.

It is necessary that I mention that the representative of NCRI in Italy, Mr. Mohammad Hossein Naghdi who was a former Iranian diplomat in Italy that had also joined NCRI, was assassinated in Rome at the hands of Iranian terrorist agents of Iranian regime on Mach 16, 1993. Therefore, in Italy that I have lived last 50 years, I have been under protection of Italian security forces and my residence as well as all of my travel inside Italy is monitored by Italian security forces due to the terrorist threats of the fascist regime of the Mullahs of Iran everywhere outside of Iran that they have assassinated many political opposition personalities.

During these difficult years that NCRI has been struggling for freedom and democracy in Iran, Iranian resistance could not continue its struggle without support of a strong social base inside Iran indicated by tens of thousands political prisoners and much more executions as well as a tremendous support outside of Iran as great political gatherings all over the world are indicators of the popularity of the Iranian resistance abroad among Iranians and other citizens of the world.

I like to mention to the three times trips of Ms. Maryam Rajavi, president elect of NCRI, to Italy at the requests of Italian parliament, city governments and political figures of Italy that I had the honor of accompanying her in all of the political meetings in Italian parliament, with Rome’s mayor and other Italian political and cultural personalities. All of Italian politicians as well as other personalities, that Ms. Rajavi encountered, were impressed by her strong personality as a modern and popular leader. Now, we are facing accusations and false labels of many so called university professors and Human Rights activists, who are on the payroll of the fascist regime of the Mullahs of Iran, published on some of the well known newspapers of the world against People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran. And my question for all of these mercenaries of Khamenei and Ahmadi-Nezhad is that have the ever written anything about numerous violations of Human Rights in Iran that Iranian youth, women, and so many political prisoners have been subjected to horrible conditions including constant physical and mental tortures. A prime example of Iranian regime brutality was the case of Iranian-Canadian journalist Ms. Zahra Kazemi who died under torture at the hands of the so called judge Mortazavi who is well known for his crimes against humanity toward many Iranian political prisoners. Or, I like to know if they did ever write of the killing of Neda and many other brave Iranian youth who were dies innocently at the hands of thugs and executioners of the fascist regime ruling Iran. I mean the same youth who were chanting against the brutal regime of Iran in Iranian streets and their cry for freedom were falling on deaf ears as they are shouting “Obama are you with us or Mullahs?!”

Of course, justify their bloody trade of selling their honor in return for dollars of the fascist regime of the Mullahs they may have written something here and there with the sauce of Human Rights to deceive the public opinion and the US Department of State. But, today that deceptive mask has fallen off the face of the false defenders of Human Rights and the true agents of the Iranian Mullahs who were exported to US and Western countries during the last decade and that is now a fact well known t most Iranians abroad.

Ladies and gentlemen serving the fascist regime of Iranian Mullahs, who are holding the Domocles sword for the tyrant of Iran over the heads of the bravest children of the land of Lion and Sun, your shameless audacity in accusing the legitimate resistance of people of Iran, that has paid a heavy bloody price of more than 100,000 lives of the dearest children of Iranian people from every walk of life, to be terrorists and succeeded in convincing the civilized nations of the earth, who are supposed to be governments of the people for the people and by the people that claim to honor Human Rights as part of their code of conducts, to call them as terrorists too and collectively all of you and the governments of the nations buying your accusations and misinformation have committed one of the biggest injustices of mankind history and insulted the great people of Iranian nation. Your accusations and terrorist tag is not only an insult to People’s Mojahedin of Iran, but also it is an insult to the brave students, imprisoned journalists, and enslaved women of Iran in the biggest dungeon called Iran as all of the segments of innocent population of Iran have been denouncing this barbaric regime for the last two years in their magnificent uprising that have terrorized the Iranian regime with nothing but empty hands. I recognize your efforts to be of nature to serve your masters in Tehran as part of their plan to suppress Iranian people by ordering their puppet Nori Almaleki and his forces to attack the brave children of Iran at Camp Ashraf again like the past two times they did so in 2009 and 2011. However, I hold the government of United States of America accountable for the past attacks that they falied to protect residents of Camp Ashraf based on 4th Geneva convention and mutual agreement of US forces and residents of the camp that were signed after invasion of Iraq.

I ask President Obama to prevent more violations of Human Rights in Iran and another massacre of the residents of Camp Ashraf by listening to the voice of Iranian people and all Iranian political prisoners who are the main victims of the fascist regime of Mullahs of Iran.

I would like to inform President Obama that I built the sculpture of Neda who became the innocent symbol of the victims of Iranian regime during the 2009 uprising and now I am building another sculpture for Saba Haftbaradaran who was one of many innocent victims of the attack as she died due to lack of medical care imposed on all of the injured residents of the Camp Ashraf after the attack. Her sculpture is representing the victims of the modern savagery and barbarism that Iranian regime created by arranging the attack on Camp Ashraf on April 8, 2001 by using the armored vehicles Maleki received from USA. I ask you to show your children the scenes of this attack so they understand this genocide as I hope they would not see such horrible crimes against humanity in future. Saba sculpture’s image is available to be viewed in my Facebook’s page. To stop another crime against humanity, please remove MEK (PMOI) from FTO list of USA and that would be your best gift to Iranian people who have paid the heavy price for freedom and democracy in Iran.
