In a recent interview with Al-Arabiya TV, Maryam Rajavi, answers questions regarding the current political situation in Iran, what the Iranian people want and ISIS. Although Maryam Rajavi supports the Syrian and Iraqi revolutions, she does not support them militarily: “The Syrian people and the Iraqi people are suffering from the dictatorship of the clerical regime in Iran more than anything else.”
Maryam Rajavi clarifies that the issue with ISIS is that “they are an extremist group that exercises assassinations and bombs shrines of Imams and Prophets and displaces Christians.” She goes on to say that the propaganda used by the clerical regime to mislead the citizens and as an attack agains the Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization.
The propaganda of the clerical regime talks about unity between the Mojahedin-e-Khalq and ISIS, in bid to
making this propaganda a tool for the attack against Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization. Mrs. Rajavi proclaims:
“This is not a fact, however our cause is not about Shiites and Sunnis. We consider Sunnis our brothers and sisters. Islam that we believe in is far from the sectarianism; the holy Qoran says: ‘O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you.’ There is also a far distance between the Prophet Muhammad’s teachings and revenge, as when the Prophet opened Mecca, he issued an order to pardon his enemies. The ordeal of sectarian came to the region with the arrival of the clerical regime. We believe that our brothers and sisters from the Sunnis are like our brothers and sisters from the Shiites and other religions. They should have equal rights with others. We respect them and they must be partners in power in Iran, Iraq, and all other countries in the region.”
