Departure of the final group of Camp Liberty residents from Iraq

00-AVQ
This evening the last group of Camp Liberty residents, members of the main Iranian opposition, People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MeK), left Iraq safely for Albania. However the Iranian regime used every element to sabotage this operation. This is a major defeat for the mullahs and the final failure of its repeated criminal attempts to massacre all the residents in Camp Liberty. It is also a historic victory for the Iranian resistance and the Iranian people and all supporters of democracy and freedom in Iran which was achieved only due to the steadfastness of Ashraf and Libert...

Press release- terrorist attack in Nice-France

Alejo Vidal-Quadras
On behalf of the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ), I would like to express our deepest condolences to the victims of the attack in Nice, their families and to the people and Government of France. We are shocked by this terrible crime and we all stand by France. The Islamic Fundamentalism, whether Sunni under the banner of ISIS (Daesh) or Shiite sponsored by the Iranian regime, has been the main inspiration for such brutal terrorist attacks and has to be confronted at its roots. It is quite clear that Syria has become the breeding ground of Islamic extremists and as l...

COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE – Attaque terroriste à Nice, France

Alejo Vidal-Quadras
Au nom du Comité international In Search of Justice (ISJ), je tiens à exprimer nos plus sincères condoléances aux victimes de l'attentat à Nice, à leurs familles et au peuple et au gouvernement de la France. Nous sommes choqués par ce crime terrible et nous sommes tous aux côtés de la France. Le Fondamentalisme islamique, qu'ils soit sunnite sous la bannière d'ISIS (Daesh) ou chiite parrainée par le régime iranien, a été la principale source d'inspiration pour de telles attaques terroristes brutales et doit être confronté à ses racines. Il est tout à fait clair que la Syrie est devenu...

“Vidal-Quadras finds outrageous that the EU does not require from Iran an improvement in human rights” – EFE

efe
Madrid, June 7 (EFE) .- The former vice president of the European Parliament Alejo Vidal-Quadras has described today as "outrageous" that the EU talks with Iran economic and commercial ties and how to fight the Islamic State, but not human rights in the country, where "torture and executions" he said, still occur. In an interview with Efe, Vidal-Quadras -who was MEP between 1999 and 2014- lamented that Europe has accepted uncritically the "seraphic" vision of thinking that, because they have reached an agreement on nuclear control, the Tehran regime has become treatable and has improved its...
