The Washington Times - Friday, June 29, 2018 -ANALYSIS/OPINION:
In the leadup to the Free Iran Gathering of 2018 on June 30 in Paris, several Iranian dissident groups put together panels to discuss the situation in the Islamic theocracy and the eventual collapse of the regime in Tehran.
One of the common themes of the discussions was the perception of Iranian corruption of the European Union and its officials. A related truism was also discussed — the absolute appeasement of the mullahs that constantly streams from European capitals. It seems the two lines of thought are connected.
With all of the attention on both sides of the Atlantic has been on Russia as the world’s No. 1 bogeyman, as far as interfering in elections and policy are concerned,perhaps it would be useful to explore the propaganda and disinformation activities of the Iranian state — Tehran has its tentacles extending into Brussels and its self-righteous politicians.
Former U.S. Senator Robert Torricelli spoke on the Free Iran panel of the obvious conclusion that what President Trump is doing regarding shutting down the Iranian regime is what has to be done — what everyone in a quiet moment was thinking should be done, but didn’t have the guts to do so.
