I was among thousands of Iranian-Americans from 41 states across the country who took part in a huge rally and march outside the State Department last Friday, urging Secretary Clinton to act swiftly and delist the principal Iranian opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK).

Several senior former US Government officials also spoke at the rally, including Governor Ed Rendell; Rep. Patrick Kennedy; FBI Director Louis Freeh; CIA Deputy Director for Covert Operations, John Sano; and Col. Wesley Martin, chief of counterterrorism for the Coalition forces in Iraq and commandant of Camp Ashraf in 2006.

Stop Fundamentalism, Washington- 26 August 2011 – Iranians and supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), the main Iranian opposition movement, gathered in front of the State Department, today calling for immediate removal of the name of the group from the United States terror list.

The demonstrators also called for the US government to ensure about the protection of the residents of Camp Ashraf were an assault by the Iraqi government earlier this year claimed the lives of 36 men and women in that camp.

Demonstration started at 10:30 in the morning and ended at 14:00.  Organizers say that the participants had come from 40 states of the United States and Canada.

Secretary Clinton, Don’t Allow another Massacre in Camp Ashraf

Dear Secretary Clinton, Already enough people – our loved ones— have died.  The Traumatic consequences of keeping MEK on the list are unimaginable.  It will especially cost the lives of many more innocent men and women and children residing in Camp Ashraf.  Don’t allow another massacre to happen.  Delist MEK.

The supporters of MEK and Iranian-American families of residents of Camp Ashraf have organized a demonstration on Friday August 26, 2011 in front of the State Department in Washington to once again present their case and plea for removal of the Iranian opposition from the U.S. terror list.

MEK Is an Ally, Not a Foe

Who cares more about the safety and security of America and the United States’ national security: The American military personnel who have served their country on the frontlines in Iraq or the pro-Tehran lobby in Washington with well-established political and financial ties to Iran’s leadership and its UN Mission in New York?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon be making a momentous decision about the removal of the Iranian opposition, Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO). But has she taken note of what many American military officers, who have dealt with the group in person, sometimes for months, say about the MEK?

Former State Department Officials Urge Delisting of MEK

Washington - In recent months, with anticipation of a decision by Secretary Hillary Clinton about the lifting of the unfounded terrorist designation from Iran’s democratic opposition Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), a number of former senior officials of the State Department, from both Republican and Democratic administrations, have gone on the record to call for an objective review of the designation based on facts and devoid of customary ill-advised foreign policy considerations designed to send conciliatory signals to Tehran.
