London, 12 Sep – The Iranian Resistance is the only logical alternative to the authoritarian regime assesses Giulio Terzi, a former Italian Foreign Minister in a piece on The Hill.
He states that European countries like Britain, who have now resumed commercial flights to Iran and appointed an ambassador to the country, Germany, who are welcoming two Iranian banks to ease financial transactions between the countries, and France, who sent the President of their National Assembly to visit Tehran last week, are not unaware of the Iranian Regime’s horrific deeds but rather unable to see an alternative.
He said: “The reason why so many Europeans are pushing for expanded relations today is not because they aren’t aware of Tehran’s historical support for terrorism or its human rights abuses or its subversion of democracy. Rather, a major reason for pursuing negotiations with that regime is because people simply don’t recognize that there is an alternative.”
He added: “There is another government waiting in the wings, prepared to shape a future for Iran that is based on declared principles of secularism, democracy, and gender equality as it has been articulated by President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran Maryam Rajavi.”
The Iranian Resistance is that alternative, the Regime tried to destroy them during the 1988 massacre, tried to discredit them internationally and tried to downplay support for the Resistance within Iran.
He said: “It is clear that the Iranian resistance can survive and grow even when it is neglected by the world community. It is clear that it can score significant victories over the Iranian regime when given a modicum of international support, as is the case with Camp Liberty. Just imagine what it could do if the European establishment ceased their pursuit of trade with the current regime and instead put their full-throated support behind the democratic opposition.”
Members of the Iranian Resistance stranded in Iraq for 13 years have finally been relocated to safety in Albania, having suffered constant attacks by the Regime and its Iraqi proxies. Deliveries of food and medical supplies have been disrupted, bombs have been dropped in their camps and for the most part, the West turned a blind eye to the sufferings of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK).
Terzi said: “Those who have close contact with the PMOI naturally oppose the predominant push toward closer relations with Tehran, while those who champion that push close their eyes to the Iranian regime’s nefarious conduct at home and abroad and are notoriously ignorant about the MEK, its principles, its durability, and its relevance.”
