Maryam Rajavi meets French supporters of Iranian Resistance

Maryam Rajavi

Dear friends and neighbors,
My best wishes for the New Year 2016. On behalf of the Iranian people and Resistance, I wish a year filled with happiness and fraternity for the people of France.
I hope it will be a year of progress, prosperity and security for France, and the year of freedom for my people in Iran.
In the words of the great Persian poet Hafez, "We are going to paint a new design of the sky!"
Like most Iranian poets, Hafez was strongly opposed to religious fanaticism and extremism. So, in the dark era of the Mongol attack on Iran, he wrote poems that are eternally full of hope for freedom and humanity. It is the same spirit that is felt here in the beginning of the New Year.
Now that are world is targeted by extremism under the banner of Islam, like Hafez, we invite everyone to a new drive to build a world free of religious fascism of the Iranian mullahs and fundamentalists of the same nature, like DAESH. A world based on tolerance and freedom.
Last year was a harsh one for the Middle East because of the persistence of bloodbaths in Syria and Iraq, and continuation of the suffering, displacement and repression.
It was also a difficult year for Iran because of stepped up suppression of women and followers of other religions and because of nearly one thousand executions under the so-called moderate Rouhani government. He also had a rocket attack launched on Camp Liberty which left dozens killed. 
In the depth of this darkness, however, the flame of hope is brighter than ever.
