London, 8 Dec - Iran is finally being put under the pressure it deserves, says one human rights activist in an op-ed on The Hill.

Heshmat Alavi wrote: “Maybe the single subject Democrats and Republicans can truly agree on in Washington, today and maybe for a long time to come, will be upgrading sanctions on Iran.”

The extension of the Iran Sanctions Act for at least another ten years, which passed through Congress last week with bipartisan support and is expected to be signed by President Obama before the end of December, is “terrifying” the Iranian Regime according to Alavi.
