upi-fb

And with new realities, come new opportunities. A case in point is Iran, a very aggressive enemy of the United States for the past four decades.

Terrorism and Iran’s influence on instability in the Middle East – University of Picardy Jules Verne

2016-11-07-2
Speech by Dr. Alejo Vidal-Quadras in the international forum "Relations between the EU and Iran" at the University of Picardy Jules Verne, Amiens 7 of November 2016 Terrorism emanating from Islamic fundamentalism is now "terrorism without borders". The civilized world, with all its values and achievements, is facing an unprecedented challenge and a very serious risk. If the urgency of the problem is not in question, an appropriate response will still prove elusive for policymakers. Clearly it is not a confrontation between the West and Islam, with over 1.7 billion followers. It is the...

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.

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...

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.

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...
