By executing more and more in spite of global outrage, they hope to show the Iranian people and the Free World that they are powerless.”

She added that “But it’s the regime that lacks real power. Force alone is its only means to survive but not for long; the Iranian people are more than ever refusing any prospect but a nonviolent overthrowing [of the regime].”
