"We must look to the democratic opposition in Iran and move away from supporting the antisemitic terror regime in Iran."

"The largest protests Iran has seen in decades were brutally crushed in November. 1,500 people have been killed, 7,000 are in prison, and there is a great risk that they will be tortured or killed as well. The population has shown that they no longer want this regime. We have to ask ourselves the question: How long do we want to stand by the side of this brutal regime, how long do we want to stabilize what actually cannot be stabilized? And we must pay much more attention to the democratic opposition. That is the future of the Middle East, those are the people we have to support. We have to move away from continuing to support this anti-Semitic terror regime." (click on image to listen)
