MEK: US Lawmakers Show Support for a Firm Policy Towards Iran Regime
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that last week, 45 more members of the US House of Representatives gave their support for House Resolution 118.
Expressing support for the Iranian people
The Resolution urges the US government to take a tougher approach with regards to the Iranian regime and its belligerence. There are now 158 signatories to the Resolution entitled “Expressing support for the Iranian people’s desire for a democratic, secular, and nonnuclear Republic of Iran and condemning violations of human rights and state-sponsored terrorism by the Iranian Government”.
The Resolution was registered by Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) who emphasizes that the Iranian regime disregards the human rights of its people and is involved with extensive terrorist activities across the world.
Virtual conference on Iran policy
The cosponsors of the Resolution are from both sides of the house. During a virtual conference on the subject of Iran policy, participants including the Subcommittee on National Security, the House Budget Committee, the Committee on Armed Services, the Committee on the Judiciary, the House Intelligence Committee, and the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs, condemned the Iranian regime for its crimes against the people of Iran and called for the administration to take urgent action.
They called on the government to hold the regime accountable for its terrorist activities and to persist with a firm policy against the regime, making sure that no concessions are given.
Ten-point plan for a future Iran
The participants also called on the administration to give support to the people of Iran and support the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Mrs. Maryam Rajavi and her ten-point plan for a future Iran.
The Iranian regime has been putting all its hopes into the new US administration moving towards re-joining the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and a revival of the appeasement policies it previously enjoyed. However, as time goes on, these hopes are becoming less and less likely to come to fruition.
The regime’s state terrorism
The members of the U.S. Congress emphasized that the Iranian regime has been for quite some time, and still is, the number one state-sponsor of terrorism in the world. The situation will remain this way for as long as the regime is in power. The recent sentencing of an Iranian diplomat terrorist shows that the regime’s state terrorism has become very brazen and extends to Western countries.
They also draw attention to the regime’s extreme repression of the people of Iran. They mentioned the brutal 1988 massacre of political prisoners and highlighted that the abuses continue right up to this day, mentioning the crackdown on the poverty-stricken people in the Baluchestan province in the past few weeks.
The support for freedom and democracy in Iran
With regards to Mrs. Rajavi’s ten-point plan for a future Iran, the participants of the conference agreed that the people of Iran must be supported in their desire for freedom and democracy – something that the plan addresses well.
The support for Resolution 118 is growing and there are hopes that it will contribute to holding the regime accountable for its actions and more importantly to contribute to aiding the people of Iran in their struggle for freedom.
