April 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Statement
Washington, DC – In a statement, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson publically called out Iran on its malign international role and made public President Donald Trump order for a comprehensive review of the U.S. policy towards Iran. Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC-US) applauds the Secretary and the administration for their commitment to instituting a comprehensive U.S. policy towards Iran.
For nearly 4 decades, successive U.S. administrations have maintained an ambivalent posture towards, ignored, or actively appeased Iranian rulers while the ayatollahs escalated their brutality both at home and across the Middle East. The current State Department statement on U.S. position is significant because it signals an end to this failed approach. “Trump administration has no intention of passing the buck to a future administration on Iran,” said Mr. Tillerson. He further noted hat Iranian regime’s “ambitions are a grave risk to international peace and security.”
OIAC continues to warn of Iranian regime’s growing influence in the Middle East and laments international inaction on Iran’s atrocious human rights record, a fact admirably noted by Mr. Tillerosn. Iranian regime presently executes more of its citizens (per capita) than any other sovereign nation. Additionally, perpetrators of the infamous 1988 massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners still serve at the highest levels of the Iranian government.
We praise the administration for its firmness on Iranian regime & its misdeeds. We additionally appreciate congressional leaders who through H.Res.188 and other measures are working to keep masterminds of the 1988 massacre and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accountable for their crimes against humanity.
OIAC-US is the largest, most active, all volunteers, and enduring grass root organization of Iranian-Americans with local chapters in 40 states. Its members have a range of political and party affiliations but unified in the belief that democracy and human rights in Iran, are imperative to the national security of America and peace in the Middle East and beyond.
