The modern revolution of Iran has passed its 112th day. It has resisted many internal developments since the slaughtering of Mahsa Amini by the Islamic Republic's notorious morality police. Today, there is a massive revolutionary uprising across Iran.
However, the Islamic Republic murders the youth by direct gunshots or executes them by giving out death sentences in kangaroo Islamic courts and after 10-minute trials without a lawyer, legal counsel, or due process. As well, the ruthless terrorist regime captures young female protestors and murders them after continual rapes. Through extreme violence, they pursue to contain the spreading waves of the revolution. Despite all this oppression, progressively, the revolution is expanding and deepening.
Each day, the economic battle against the regime is becoming more pervasive. The Iranians have devastated the regime's economy by embargoing the purchase of government-backed goods, withdrawing money from banks, and converting it into gold or the US dollar, and other reserve currencies.
Notably, the modern revolution of Iran is an immense historical renaissance. It is unique in the history of uprisings in the Middle East. It calls for democracy, secularism, human dignity, freedom, and equal rights.
Its ideals and goals of Iran ongoing revolution are comparable to the American revolution. The similarity of slogans and demands with the Bill of Rights implies a democratic and secular Iran will have the best economic and cultural relations with the United States in the future. Most importantly, a democratic Iran will be a strategic ally for all states in the Middle East. Surely, this forthcoming partnership would be developed from political sphere of influence to cultural values.
In actuality, after the establishment of a secular and democratic Iran, the Islamic terrorist groups which have brought fire and blood to the Middle East and the world will dry up entirely. Additionally, the world will be free from the evil of Islamic fundamentalism that emerged in the Middle East since1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. All of the Middle East will receive the gift of peace and tranquility.
It should be considered that the Europe has a strategic necessity to replace energy dependence on Russia in the short, medium, and long term. Europe needs to receive its gas supply from Iran, Qatar, and other countries via pipelines that avoid passing through Russian territory. The only practical and feasible pipeline route that meets this criterion would be the one that goes through Iran. Therefore, a democratic and non-nuclear Iran would be the main source of energy (gas and oil) to Europe.
But what do the Iranian people want from Western countries, especially the United States? Strategically, the free world should listen to the legitimate voice of the Iranian people instead of think-tanks and lobbies which are under the influence of the mullah’s clowns who falsely portray as the voice of the regime.
Through their many campaigns, the Iranian people have expressed the world their main desire. They believe the free world should not enter any economic or strategic deal or negotiation, such as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with the terrorist Islamic Republic regime. Though, the dead JCPOA will unlock a large sum of money that the terrorist authorities will use to take more innocent lives instead of easing the economic poverty for Iranians.
