ImageBRUSSELS (AP) — More than 100 members of the European Parliament are urging President Barack Obama to remove an Iranian opposition group from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations.

The lawmakers say in a letter that the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran "has clearly demonstrated" it is a friend of the West and an enemy of religious fundamentalism.

The Mujahedeen were placed on Washington's [list] of banned organizations in 1997 in an apparent effort by Washington to appease Tehran's theocratic government.

The European Union also banned the group, but removed it from the terrorist list in January after a string of court decisions in the group's favor.

The European Parliament, elected by the EU's 375 million eligible voters, has 785 members.
