Iraqi Shiite organization voices support for Iranian opposition PMOI

An Iraqi Shiite organization has once again expressed strong support for the main ?opposition against the Iranian regime.?

The Iraqi Jafari Shiite Delegation said in a statement that Iraqis of all backgrounds ?and all patriotic forces that seek freedom and peace support liberation movements ?and most notably the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).?

According to the Jordanian daily al-Dastour, the delegation’s statement condemned ?the Iranian theocracy, saying that “the most notable and dangerous example of ?tyranny and oppression in history has been the Iranian theocracy’s which is based on ?the absolute rule of the clerics.”?

The Shiite group said the velayat-e faqih, or absolute clerical rule, advocates ?violence, fundamentalism, expansionism, racism and oppression, all of which ?threaten regional and global peace.?

?“As long as such an ideology exists, the regime’s threats will not target specific ?parties,” the statement said, adding, “Therefore, it is imperative to uproot this fascist ?regime, striking at its foundations starting with the principle of velayat-e faqih.”?

The Jafari Shiite Delegation “believes that our support and the support of our ?patriotic forces for the National Council of Resistance of Iran is a binding national, ?Islamic and humanitarian duty in the context of given patriotic responsibilities in ?confrontation with the Iranian regime’s threats and criminal policies.”?
