Sam Ghandchiسام قندچيMessage of Iran's Opposition to Saudi Should be Frank and not Double-sided

پیام اپوزیسیون به عربستان باید صریح باشد و نه دوگانه 

Sorry to repeat this discussion. Why is it important that opposition's message to Saudi Arabia to be that we are against their attack on Iran and that we are not and will not be their fifth column? Because of the clear reason that when the opposition gives a double-sided message to Saudi, they will become more steadfast for a military attack on Iran, the same thing that happened with regards to Saddam Hussein.


It seems like Saudi Arabia is taking on the main role to confront Iran's domination over the Middle East and even Israel, at least at this time, is playing a secondary role in this regard (1).


Iran's opposition had the same experience 35 years ago at the time of Iraq's invasion of Iran. At the time, Iraq also wanted to take advantage of our activities and anybody in the opposition who talked about the danger of Iraq's attack on Iran, was bedeviled as if s/he wants to support the Islamic Republic of Iran. A few opposition forces abroad at first issued double-sided messages to Iraq, but regretted it later when Iraq's invasion materialized, and even denied their contact with Saddam which remained like a shameful stain for them in history.

Dear Friends, our opposition to Islamic Republic is an internal matter and military attack on Iran is not to our benefit. We should say this clearly to Saudi Arabia and others.  Once, the experience of dealings with Iraq destroyed Iran's opposition, let's not make the same mistake again.


Hoping for a democratic and secular futurist republic in Iran,
