Sir David Amess MP sent the following letter to the Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post, Polly Curtis, on 8 December 2017:
Dear Ms Curtis,
It is regrettable that The Huffington Post has allowed its respected platform to be exploited by Massoud Khodabandeh to repeat the Iranian regime’s baseless accusations against Iran’s democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Why a nuclear deal must not mean Iran gets a free pass on human rights

Securing an international inquiry into the 1988 massacre of thousands of political prisoners will win over the Iranian people.
Earlier in September, the UN Secretary General sent the latest report of the Special Rapporteur on Iran’s human rights to the General Assembly for discussion. The August 14 report provides a detailed account of a series of serious abuses that were carried out by the Iranian authorities in the past year year.

The US can successfully confront both leading sources of Islamic extremism at once: the Islamic State & the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Donald Trump is on his first overseas trip as President of the United States. By visiting Saudi Arabia and then moving on directly to Israel, he will be working to solidify emerging partnerships in the region which might have once seemed implausible. Although both are long-standing American allies, the two countries have traditionally been recognised as regional adversaries, but now both are increasingly concerned about the ascendancy of Iranian imperialism and its contribution to bloody conflicts in Syria, Yemen, and elsewhere.
