Stop the campaign of terror against Iran and its scientists!

Ramsey Clark founder of International Action Center and former US Attorney General, in a statement on Wednesday condemned the assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan and said that the aim of these assassinations is “to stop Iran’s drive for industrial and technological independence on which the independence of Iran and the freedom of its people depends.”

Referring to Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan’s assassination, the fifth assassination of its kind in the past two years in Iran, Ramsey Clark, said in a statement that this is a “deadly escalation of the covert criminal activities conducted by the U.S., Israel and their terrorists and domestic spies in Iran against the government and people of Iran.”

He went on to add that “while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denied any U.S. involvement, the important and undeniable truth is that the governments of the U.S. and Israel have openly declared Iran as an enemy and have publicly stated that they will use all means necessary, not excluding military attack, to change the Iranian government using Iran’s efforts to produce nuclear energy as an excuse.”

The internationally renowned human rights defender noted that “the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists is an effort to create fear in the Iranian people, opposition to their own government and to monopolize nuclear research and development of nuclear power,” adding that the aim is to stop Iran’s industrial and technological independence on which “the independence of Iran and the freedom of its people depend.”

Recalling the dictator Shah of Iran's nuclear energy program and his escape from Iran, Clark stressed that “in the decades since the Shah fled, sanctions, sabotage and threats have escalated into dangerous new decisions to send a U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier, destroyers and nuclear submarines into the Persian Gulf and impose harsher sanctions on trade, and an oil embargo.” “All of these threats are threats against peace and violations of international law.”

In the end of his statement, Clark said that “a just society can have no interest in stopping the peaceful progress of other nations and peoples.”
