My uncle President Kennedy wrote a famous book called While England Slept,, documenting the failure of appeasement towards Adolf Hitler in World War II. He fought against the imperial dictatorship, against Hirohito, and his brother, my Uncle Joe, was killed in Europe fighting for the freedom of our allies. Electing a mass murderer like Raisi shows that Khomeini and his Mullahs have given up any facade of moderation. There’s no excuse anymore for denying the truth. The United States States ranks Iran’s Mullahs as the number one exporter of terrorism in the world, the number one violator of human rights of its own people, and the number one executioner as well as sending its agents to Europe, to United States, Latin America, under the pretense of diplomacy, to plant bombs in our backyard. Even more, they were also caught red-handed, building a nuclear weapons program after promising the world that they would comply with international treaties.
President Kennedy went to Berlin during his administration.. His famous words to show his solidarity that Berlin’s fight was all the world’s fight, was when he said, “Ich bin ein Berliner.” So, I am proud as I have said before at this gathering and others in Farsi to say “Man Irani hastam [I am an Iranian]”.
