You know, so much changes and so much remains the same. A short time ago we were here trying to rationalize why the United States government would put this democratic movement on a foreign terrorist list. Absolutely insane. That has changed, and it was a product of your work and your inspiration, your faith, the struggle of those of your brothers and sisters in Iraq.

The policy of my country, unfortunately, has not dramatically changed. We have led an absolutely insane agreement with a terrorist regime with respect to our nuclear safety. U.S. sailors are stopped and their ship is captured by IRGC. They’re held at gunpoint — and we discipline the sailors for dereliction of duty!

This week marked the 20th anniversary of the IRGC Hezbollah bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. Twenty years ago this week, 19 Americans and dozens of Saudis were killed by the Saudi Hezbollah, which was trained by the IRGC; their passports they received in the Iranian embassy in Damascus; the bombers were trained in the Bekaa Valley.

One thing that has remained constant, and we are very fortunate and lucky and proud that it’s been constant, is the bravery, the leadership, the dedication, the sacrifice that you have all made in the spirit of freedom. And Madame Rajavi, thank you for being a constant anchor and a beacon of hope and faith for all of us.
