Ardeshir Ommani, an activist in the anti-war and anti-

imperialist struggle for over 40 years, including against the

Vietnam War. Ardeshir is a co-founder of the American-

Iranian Friendship Committee (AIFC), where news of his

 most recent visit to Iran in March & April 2006 can be read.

He helped launch the successful StopWarOnIran.org

 campaign. He has written a number of articles documenting

 the U.S. foreign policy toward Iran. He has translated many

 articles into Farsi, which have been published inside Iran in

 the progressive press. In the 1960's, he was a co-founder of

 the Iranian Students Association (ISA), which contributed

to the struggle against the Shah of Iran, a U.S. puppet. Mr.

Ommani returned to Iran in 1979, at the dawn of the

 revolution and participated in the revolutionary surge of that

 period. Since returning to the U.S. in 1980, he has been very

 active in the anti-war movement and in the struggle against

 the U.S. war and occupation of Iraq.

It is with grave concern that we observe the growing threat of a new U.S. war--this time against the people of Iran.

The media is filled with reports of an alleged nuclear threat posed by Iran and the assumed need for the U.S. to take military action. These reports remind us of the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" reports issued in the months leading up to the war on Iraq. >> view full statement and signers   In Farsi  En Español

It goes without saying that what is called the international community, i.e., the U.S., its allies in Western Europe and Israel follow the same foreign policy in relation to Iran. All this is part of the plan of action of the United States to remain in Iraq and Afghanistan indefinitely and be in control of the Middle East oil reserves.
