Omid will answer questions about Iran's latest nuclear activities, sharing information received from sources within Iran. She will direct media attention to the ongoing U.S. policy, alerting the world that Mojahedin, even though on the U.S. terrorist watch list, are roaming the U.S. capital and meeting with President Bush while their agents set off bombs in different cities within Iran.
"U.S.-funded television and radio broadcasts claim Mojahedin has the endorsement of the U.S. government. This perceived alliance with a known terrorist group increases animosity toward Americans in the Persian Gulf region," Omid said.
"Mojahedin falsely portray themselves as Iranian activists. The truth is they are no less evil than the current regime, which Iranians don't approve but they don't want Mojahedin either, viewing U.S. government collaboration with this terrorist group as a grave mistake," Omid said. "Iranians are united in the belief that a terrorist is a terrorist and there are no good terrorists. They know from experience that the United States must not make deals with Mojahedin which betrayed the Shah, bringing Khomani to power and betrayed Iran while at war with Iraq."
"U.S. interaction with this terrorist group has caused a stir among Iranians who want to uproot the current regime and are willing to help the United States, providing Mojahedin completely excluded," Omid added.
Omid is speaking on behalf of Iranians united against any U.S. green light for Mojahedin. She is willing to share private information with the U.S. Senate and journalists, to ensure that the people of Iran are not deceived again.
Omid will speak about policies involving prominent Iranians who have feet in both countries and are willing to help the U.S. government in order to help the Iranian people.
She will explain what will induce protesting Iranians to move to the streets and will speak about Human and Women's Rights violations and recent protests in Iran.
