Op-ed

By Colonel (Retired) Wes Martin

Earlier this month, two deadly terrorist attacks were launched within an hour of each other at Iran’s parliament building and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic’s founder Ruhollah Khomeini. ISIS quickly claimed responsibility.

It is interesting that these attacks come at a time when President Donald Trump and his top administrators are refocusing attention upon the fact that Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism.

London, 9 Jun - The 1988 Iranian massacre was a strategic attempt by the Iranian Regime to wipe out political opposition by executing those who spoke out against them, mainly members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

The Iranian Regime executed 30,000 political prisoners, including teenagers and pregnant women, over a matter of months and their death warrants were signed by high-ranking members of the current Regime.

London, 4 May - Squaring off with Iran, Syria and North Korea, the Trump administration has indicated that the years of appeasement with dictators have ended, according to a new op-ed carried by the Washington Examiner.

Tehran is beginning to understand these policy changes from the United States, and it follows that Trump should also target Iran's human rights violations.

London, 4 Jun - The Iranian presidential elections have ended and President Hassan Rouhani is starting his second term. It is difficilut to see what way Iran is heading with regards to its domestic and foreign policy.

Some are wondering whether Iran is going to finally start engaging in the international community seeing as Rouhani has been re-elected. At the end of last month, the country’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, said: “There are those who are concerned a state and its people should have global relations, and I completely agree.”

For the Iranian opposition members trapped in Camp “Liberty”, near Baghdad Airport, the name of their tiny compound has become a sick joke. These refugees are the final remnants of a substantial community numbering almost 4000, that occupied a vast sprawling enclave called Camp Ashraf, 60 miles north of Baghdad in Diyala Province. They fled to Iraq following a vicious pogrom in the 1980’s which saw over 120,000 of their People’s Mojahedin's Organisation of Iran (PMOI) movement executed by the theocratic Iranian regime. They built Camp Ashraf into a large, thriving city with parks, streets, factories, a library, museum, university and accommodation and they lived there in harmony with the local Iraqi population.
