Iran Update



From early years of the Islamic rule, Ayatollah Khomeini saw the growing support among Iranians for the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq) to be a danger to his rule and his backward interpretation of Islam.  He therefore issued a religious decree saying anyone in affiliation with the MEK (at any level) is a Mohareb (one who wages war on God) and should be punished by death.  The decree and other orders even involved the families of the victims.


In 1988 over 30,000 political prisoners mostly affiliated with the MEK were executed; a genocide still unheard of by the world.


Through the years, lucrative business with Iran has left the victims of the mullah's regime without sanctuary. The United States designated the MEK back in 1997 to curry favor to the mullahs.  The policy still continues.

Below you see a true life story from one of the victims: "Ambassador Butler, You Are on the Wrong Side!"


We are delighted to present you with the current issue of Iran Update, a publication of International Solidarity for Democratic Change in Iran (ISDCI).
