London, Oct. 31 – Iranian exiles from nearly 40 states in the United States condemned threats last week by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – who called for the destruction of the state of Israel – and demanded that that West end its “policy of appeasement” and formulate a decisive policy against Iran’s theocratic regime.

The Iranian-American National Convention for a Democratic, Secular Republic in Iran said that Ahmadinejad’s “nefarious position” and its reaffirmation by other government officials must “serve as a wake up call to all Western capitals”.

The Convention called on the United States and the European Union to “abandon the policy of engaging Iran’s outlaw regime and to adopt a firm policy in support of democratic change in Iran”.

It supported efforts by the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate to expel the Iranian regime from the United Nations.

“Ahmadinejad’s pernicious speech was a clear manifestation of Tehran’s sinister goal of exporting of terrorism and fundamentalism to Iraq, the region, and beyond”, the statement said, adding that his speech signaled the resurgence of a “rogue regime which is banking on the lack of resolve in Washington and the EU capitals to confront its nuclear weapons ambitions and its wicked campaign to derail Iraq’s fragile democratic process”.

It also called for Tehran’s nuclear dossier to be hauled before the UN Security Council.

The Iranian-Americans National Convention, whose members are based in some 40 U.S. states, came into existence in April 2005.

Separately, a Washington-based Iran policy group also condemned the Iranian president’s threatening remarks.

The Iran Policy Committee said that the UN must follow up on a resolution on October 28 by the Security Council if Ahmadinejad continued his threats. “The Security Council should consider adopting measures under Chapter Seven of the Charter, which would make it obligatory on all Member States to comply”, Raymond Tanter, co-chair of the IPC said.

The group added, “One theme from the Arab press is that Ahmadinejad has simply restated the doctrine of revolutionary Iran under Ayatollah [Ruhollah”> Khomeini. But Ahmadinejad’s threats go well beyond those of Khomeini’s empty threats of the 1980s; with Iran’s military buildup and nuclear weapons programs, Ahmadinejad’s threats have a credibility Khomeini’s lacked 25 years ago”.
