Congressman Ted Poe, speaking not just as a member of the House of Representatives but as a former judge and prosecutor, pledged his support to the pursuit of justice for Iran as embodied in the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Drawing attention to the plight of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in Camp Liberty in Iraq, Congressman Poe said that 66 co-sponsors, from both parties, had come forward with proposed legislation condemning the attacks on the unarmed residents.
He blamed “the mullahs in Tehran” for the deaths of 140 and the injuries to 1300 in successive assaults on Camp Liberty. Congressman Poe said the attacks demonstrated the fear in which the opposition is held by the regime in Tehran.
Commending the Resistance for its defiance – a mass Free Iran rally takes place on July 9 in Paris – Congressman Poe vowed that the day of reckoning for the regime would come: the “fire in all of us that wants to be free…cannot be quenched by any dictator; it is in our soul,” he said.
