Peculiar things happen in Washington. But one that is most bizarre is an Iranian lobby group which has now turned green, that is merely going bananas over the possibility of Washington delisting the main Iranian opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (Mek/PMOI).
For years, the lobby group known as NIAC has promoted ways and means of just how to “get along” with the Ayatollahs regime in Iran. First it was Rafsanjani, Iran’s former president, who was the most moderate man in the world, and then it turned out that Khatami was even more moderate. And after Khatami, surprise, there came Ahmadinejad who was just the man that America could sit and talk to.
And now NIAC is banging its head against the walls in the Hill to press American policy makers that they should at any price continue the policy to appease the terrorist mullah’s ruling in Iran and instead of pressuring Iran, suppress its legitimate opposition movement in exile. That way democracy will prevail and Iran’s “indigenous democratic movement”, led by individuals who have held high offices during the past 30 years of brutal rule of clerical regime will succeed.
