INU - This weekend Senator Joseph Lieberman participated in a gathering in solidarity for freedom in Iran that was held in Ashraf-3 city in Albania where, as the Senator put it, there was nowhere else he’d rather be on that day.
The Senator reminded everyone of the time that the residents, members of MEK Iranian resistance group, were stranded in Iraq under direct attacks of the Iranian regime.
He described the time as “hell of Camp Liberty” and expressed his happiness that the residents are finally living in safety in Ashraf-3.
Mr. Lieberman expressed his solidarity with the MEK movement in their fight for freedom in Iran and vowed to stand with them all the way.
“Why do I say a new day is dawning?” asked the Senator, “we’re not there yet but it's coming. The first is represented by Ashrafis’ miraculous being in Albania.”
He admired the MEK and NCRI for refusing to give in fighting to bring the members to safety.
.@JoeLieberman at the #FreeIran event at the MEK's compound: It's not only an honor but exciting to be here in Ashraf 3. We gathered in many meetings. In Paris & the crowd was enormous, but there's nowhere I'd rather be today than in Ashraf 3#IStandWithMaryamRajavi #WeSupportMEK pic.twitter.com/1o9ITXKhD4— NCRI-FAC (@iran_policy) July 13, 2019
.@JoeLieberman: "Maryam Rajavi is a principled, visionary, selfless leader and cares for everyone of you. Ashraf 3 is the best proof that this movement is a viable alternative to the ruling mullahs in Iran."#IStandWithMaryamRajavi #FreeIran #WeSupportMEK pic.twitter.com/V1HfmrBb2g— NCRI-FAC (@iran_policy) July 13, 2019
.@JoeLieberman: "To those who advocate appeasement, it's time to stand for ppl's freedom. It’s time to bring a government to Iran that is accountable to the Iranians. A government of the people, by the people, for the people."#IStandWithMaryamRajavi #FreeIran #WeSupportMEK pic.twitter.com/N2xFYn7fhn— NCRI-FAC (@iran_policy) July 13, 2019
He also commended President Trump for being “heroic and historic to break the Iran nuclear deal and impose sections and designate the IRGC as a terror group.”
He stated that the gathering is rightly against the mullahs’ regime that is holding their country hostage. “Now we have the US, and hopefully our allies, standing against the regime and for the people in Iran.”
The senator disagreed with those who continue to support the appeasement policy and told those present that you will succeed, because the “history is on your side and in the end, the freedom and justice will win.”
He also remembered the late Senator John McCain and said that he would have been there today if he was alive.
Not only “you represent an alternative, but you represent the right alternative,” said the Senator to the MEK members gathered at the meeting as he continued his address.
At the end Lieberman commended Mrs. Rajavi for her leadership in highlighting the plight of the Iranian people and 120,000 martyrs of freedom at the hands of the mullahs’ regime.
“Ashraf 3 is the best testament to the fact that you fight for freedom,” stressed former Senator Lieberman. “It’s time to stand for the people’s freedom. The people of Iran deserve a government that is accountable to them; a government for the people, by the people, and of the people.”
