Progressive American Iranian Committee
On behalf of “PAIC” we would like to extend our congratulations to the President-elect Mr. Barack Obama. This historic event is a significant illustration of the American democracy at its best. Once again this victory demonstrated that USA is the land of opportunities for all its residents including the minorities and the immigrants. The Iranian Americans as one of the minority immigrants are confident that their adopted country, the USA, would respond in the same tone to their needs and would recognize their choices in the same admirable manner in their efforts to establish democracy in their native land.
The ruling regime in our native country is relentlessly suppressing the most fundamental and basic rights of our people.
Obama's victory is a new source of inspiration for the Iranian people in their struggle for democracy and freedom.
We hope that Mr. Obama’s new administration will steer USA’s previous disconcerted policies towards Iran into the right direction to take a more purposeful and firm stance in US policies against the despotic regime of the Islamic Republic in Iran.
There is little doubt that the Iranian community’s concerns regarding the religious dictatorship in Iran is one of the biggest challenges of the new president after his inauguration on January 20th 2009.
The Iranian community in the USA expects Mr. Obama to take effective steps in handling the Iranian regime’s threats in the Middle East by bringing the whole world together in order to neutralize Iran’s rulers’ ambitions to acquire the nuclear bomb, and to offset Islamic Republic’s lobbying influence in the USA.
We would like to emphasize that in order to stand against the Islamic fundamentalist regime in Iran, the Progressive Iranian-American individuals and organizations such as “PAIC” are amongst the best partners and allies.
