Today, throughout America, individuals and groups are uniting to demonstrate their opposition to the human-rights abuses and nuclear-weapons ambition of the current Iranian regime. In New York City, for example, representatives of Jewish and Iranian communities will be joined by labor, human-rights, and other organizations that are appalled by the Iranian government’s unacceptable and dangerous behavior. In Minnesota we call on people of all faiths and beliefs to speak out, with one voice, against the repressive regime in Tehran.
Does anyone seriously argue that the Iranian government’s treatment of its own people is not making Iran an international pariah? Since the disputed June 2009 presidential elections, the Iranian regime has proven through murder, rape and brutal beatings that it will not tolerate political dissent.
