ایران بر سر دو راهی 

The regime ruling Iran, for the first time in 37 years, after signing the Iran Deal in Vienna cannot claim to be in danger of a foreign attack and the public opinion is now focused on the political, economic and social life of the people in Iran, and the way Islamic Republic of Iran is administering the country. The leaders of Islamic Republic of Iran, relative to the political opposition, are in a similar situation that Shah was in 1977 when the last opportunities for peaceful change were still possible but he did not agree to the liberal government of Shapour Bakhtiar till it was too late, and Khomeini's radicalism had already become the people's alternative for change in the country.


The demand for peaceful change in the Islamic Republic of Iran is not limited to the Islamist Reformers and includes the secular forces that have worked for peaceful change all these years. Not only Mousavi, Karroubi and Rahnavard have not been freed yet but all the endeavors of the peaceful seculars to change the beneficent supervision (nezarate estesvabi law) so that they can participate in the upcoming February 2016 election, have failed and if in the last year of the Shah, because of shortsightedness of the regime and lack of giving concessions to the peaceful change, Khomeini's radicalism became people's alternative, this time the radicalism of Mojahedin-e Khalgh Organization (MEK) is becoming people's alternative to Islamic Republic's regime.


The same way that before the revolution I clearly expressed my views about Khomeini's radicalism and Ayatollah Khomeini's supporters broke my nose, I have personally written my views clearly about MEK (aka MKO, PMOI) ten years ago in my book "The Futurist Iran" and I ask the readers not to think they know what the analysis is and please read it carefully in the link that is provided below (1). MEK is a Shia version of Daesh with all limitation of the scope of Shia Islam in the region. They were the only Iranian political group that supported Daesh last year when they seized Mosul (2). You can also see the latest attacks of MEK's followers against me that have been written a few days ago in Balatarin site at the link below (3).


The reality is that both the regime and Iranian people are at a crossroads today and with the increased suppression that Islamic Republic of Iran has started, everyday the MEK 's alternative for Iran is getting stronger.

Hoping for a democratic and secular futurist republic in Iran,
