US Policy on Iran Must Include Support of Resistance Forces as Well as Sanctions

London, 15 Aug – The US’s robust policy on the Iranian Regime is a step in the right direction but should be coupled with support for the Iranian Resistance, according to a human rights advocate.

Heshmat Alavi penned an op-ed titled “Congress is taking the lead on Iran policy” in which he praised the US for imposing more sanctions against the Iranian Regime but urged them to go further by support the Iranian people’s democratic and organised resistance forces, particularly the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

The Iranian Regime is terrified of the support that the Resistance gets both inside and outside of Iran because they know that the Resistance can and will overthrow them.

Alavia wrote: “Tehran is extremely concerned over the NCRI and PMOI/MEK gaining growing recognition, especially considering the fact that the Trump administration is in the midst of weighing its comprehensive Iran policy. More than ever before regime change is becoming the most likely option for Washington’s Iran dogma.”

He continued: “Many consider the progress made by the NCRI and PMOI/MEK as unprecedented and the necessary campaign to turn the tide against Tehran’s regime. After nearly 40 years of rendering havoc and destruction, it is high time the international community acknowledges the Iranian people and their organized opposition in their endeavour to bring about change in Iran with the objective of establishing freedom and democracy in Tehran.”

Some US politicians, most notably Senator John McCain, Senator Roy Blunt, and former Secretary of State John Kerry, already support the Iranian Resistance.

All three were heavily involved in the evacuation of Iranian dissidents, mainly members of the MEK resistance group from Camp Liberty in Iraq to safety in Albania.

The dissidents were forced to move after countless attacks and blockades of supplies by the Iranian Regime and its Iraqi proxies.

Indeed, the Resistance recently invited a delegation of American senators to Albania to thank them for their help during this time.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) released a statement about the meeting, thanking the US politicians and praising them for sanctions against the Iranian Regime.

It read: “Maryam Rajavi thanked the Senators for their decisive position vis-à-vis the Iranian regime, especially the adoption of a new resolution which imposed sanctions on the clerical regime and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) for human rights abuses, the ballistic missile program, and the export of terrorism. She expressed gratitude for the efforts of the U.S. Senate, particularly Senator Blunt, regarding the protection of thousands of MEK members in Camp Liberty, Iraq, and their safe relocation to Albania.”
