On Tuesday, September 10, Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah, in a video message to its supporters, reiterated his allegiance to the Iranian regime.

Calling Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, the head of the so-called “axis of resistance,” Nasrallah said, “Hereby we declare to the whole world that Khamenei is the head of the axis of resistance and the Islamic republic is the heart and essence of resistance,” the Iranian regime and its proxy terrorist groups call themselves the resistance.

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS on September 7, James Mattis, the former United States’ Secretary of Defense, underlined Iran’s regime global threat and terrorism and accused Iran of assassinating former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri.

“this is a country that uses terrorism; they killed the former Prime Minister of Lebanon, they used terrorism to try to sow discord in Bahrain. They have used terrorism all through the region and in Yemen,” Mattis said.

Terrorism against its political opponents

In addition to its domestic oppression and regional terrorism, the Iranian regime has used terrorism to eliminate its dissidents abroad, mainly the members and supporters of the National Council of resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, MEK).

Iran’s regime has not only oppressed its opponents inside Iran but has carried out dozens of terrorist plots abroad against them, particularly in Europe. The most recent example was a failed bombing plot in Paris, France, in 2018, against the annual “Free Iran” gathering of the NCRI. The attack was planned by the diplomats of the regime in Europe. European authorities discovered and thwarted the bombing plot and arrested an Iranian diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, in connection with the attempt. Assadi currently awaits trial in Belgium.

The regime’s embassies in Europe, are proven to be centers of terrorism and espionage and have played a key role in Iran’s assassinations.

Other terrorist attacks conducted by the Iranian regime abroad against the MEK and NCRI members include the following:

• The kidnapping and mutilation of Ali Akbar Ghorbani, MEK member in June 4, 1992, In Turkey.

• The assassination of Kurdish opposition leaders in Berlin, Germany, in 1992

• The assassination of Mohammad Hossein Naghdi, NCRI member, in Rome, Italy, in 1993

• The assassination of Zahra Rajabi, NCRI member, in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1996

After reviewing Iran’s regime history of terrorism, it becomes clear that, unless firmly confronted, this regime will continue its terrorism because it is one of the key factors of its survival.
