Dear Mr. Biden,
The Islamic Republic President, Ebrahim Raisi, and the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, are known supporters of worldwide terrorism. Not only do they remain a clear and viable threat to the existence of Israel with their nonstop call for the nuclear annihilation of that sovereign nation, but their brutal regime has thoroughly dehumanized the Iranian people, who, for many years now, have yearned to be liberated from these tyrannical and bloodthirsty Islamists who rule over their lives.
Iranians will never forget a massive anti-regime movement in 2009 by millions after the fraudulent re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president of the Islamic Republic of Iran and your administration’s reaction. The regime’s response to those protesting was a set of dastardly measures typical of dictatorships. People were severely beaten, huge numbers were arrested and herded like cattle into makeshift prisons. Some were shot in the streets as they marched; others were raped and killed in Iran’s prisons. And the world watched.
The Obama Administration failed to voice its support for the brave people of Iran, and he also implied that what was happening in Iran was a kind of family squabble best left to be settled by Iranians themselves. A family feud indeed. One side of the “family” with legions of savages armed to the teeth, the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) and their hired thugs, and the other side of the “family” defenseless civilians using their voices to plead their case. The Islamic rulers spared no heinous means in mercilessly silencing the voices of the people.
Former US President Obama has recently admitted that he made “a mistake” by not supporting the Iranian people’s 2009 Green Movement against the Islamic Republic. On July 14, 2015, during the Obama presidency, Iran and six world powers known as the P5+1 (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) signed a disastrous agreement: the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ to marginalize Iran’s nuclear program and monitor it in exchange for relief from nuclear sanctions.
This deal benefited the Islamic Republic and left the door open for the regime to continue with its nuclear ambitions secretly. In other words, it was a terrible deal.
In 2022, the Iranian people once again protested against the murderous regime of the ayatollahs. Iranian Women were leading this Revolution. The bravery of these young girls captured the hearts and souls of all people worldwide. Yet, as usual, the Western world leaders’ reactions were indifferent. Regretfully, just like the Obama administration, your administration is repeating the same insanity by engaging with the conniving Mullahs and making another failed deal instead of helping the Iranian people.
For years, I have warned the world that sitting and watching this eventual catastrophic event is a fatal miscalculation. It is little more than an exercise in denial to believe that nothing wrong will happen and that the inept Mullahs will likely shoot themselves in the foot instead of wreaking havoc on the world’s free world leaders.
Sadly, no nation provided moral support for the Iranian people, while the savage mullahs and their thugs consolidated their rule of terror with impunity. The same scenario is recurring, and the world’s silence is deafening while they are engaged in the frivolous Ukraine conflict.
The civilized world must accept that brave Iranian women and men are not stopping. They are taking to the streets to cut their hair and burn their hijabs, indicating to the Islamic government that they will no longer stand for this totalitarian regime. Iranian people don’t want help from the outside world. All they are asking is to stop making deals with their killers.
