Senator John McCain, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Arms Services Committee has sent a video message to the Iran Freedom rally held on June 13 in Villepinte, north of Paris. In his message, Senator McCain said: “I am very proud to be with you for this remarkable and inspiring display of Iranian unity against the terror and violence and extremism of the regime in Tehran.”
Senator McCain expressed support for the Iranian opposition activists in Camp Liberty and said: “The people who are under attack in Camp Liberty, the American people always stood up for those fighting for the freedom and human dignity around the world and that’s why the American people will stand with you at this time. Your cause is our cause and your fight is our fight.”
Senator McCain also expressed concern about Iranian regime’s meddling in the region as the epicenter of radical Islamic extremism and said: “Today, we live in a world in crisis. Across in the Middle East, Iran is setting fire to sectarian tensions in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and beyond, killing thousands and driving millions out of their homes. The Iranian regime, the true epicenter of radical Islamic extremism in the world, continues to fund terror and inside chaos in its campaign for domination.”
Senator McCain concluded his message by assuring he will do his best to uphold the United States’ pledge to Camp Liberty residents. He said: “We know those in Camp Liberty are in danger and the Obama administration is taking far too long to relocate them to safety. But I can assure you of one thing; I would do everything in my power as chairman of the armed services committee to pass legislation to uphold our pledge to the people of camp liberty.
“The American people will stand with you in this fight. I thank you for your courage and commitment to this vital cause.”
