The Coming Storm...

To date, I don't think I've seen a better example than this as to why Iran cannot afford a Democracy in their backyard. I don't doubt that the interim Iraqi Government suggested and/or encouraged this little get together of Iraqi lawyers. Their message was clear.
1. Iraq no longer views the PMOI as a terrorist organization (opposing the Theocratic and oppressive Iranian Government of record does not constitute such). This decision is based on a legal standing, and not just public opinion.

2. Iran's continued efforts (directly or indirectly) to alter the Iraqi Elections has repercussions. Perhaps the act of unanimous approval of the 2004 Paris Declaration by Iraq's legal community seems arbitrary in stature. However, when your next door neighbor makes an undeviating effort to call your most threatening domestic adversary legitimate. And, when that next door neighbor, by their very struggle for freedom, emboldens your own household to start questioning your role, you have start questioning your own longevity.

My personal opinion is that this act by the Iraqi lawyers seems small on the surface….But, it's big…REAL BIG.

3,230 Iraqi law experts release statement on Iran opposition

Iran Focus

Baghdad, Jan. 17 – At a conference in Baghdad today, some 3,230 eminent Iraqi law experts and lawyers released a statement on the legal status of the main Iranian opposition group, the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran, calling it a legitimate movement.

The conference in the Babylon Hotel was attended by more than 1,000 Iraqi law experts and political and social figures in support of the Iranian opposition, and by over 50 different media organisations.

The 3,230 Iraqi legal experts all signed a statement approving the November 2004 Paris Declaration which said that the PMOI was a legitimate resistance group and that the terror-tag placed upon it was not based on facts and had to be removed.

They accused the Iranian regime of meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq attempting to destabilize the country in the hope of influencing the January 30 elections.
