Iranian gathering in Paris, 9 July 2016
Excerpts from remarks by Michael Mukasey, former US Attorney General
I can’t begin these remarks without telling you what an enormous privilege it is to be here with you and also to witness, as we all did, the appearance and the speech of Prince Turki al Faisal of Saudi Arabia. That was not only an important achievement, it was a historic achievement, and it is your achievement. And as you heard from him, it is Mrs. Rajavi’s achievement as well. And it shows how important and how strong the support is for you and how much it is growing all over the world.
I’m really here to speak, not simply on my own behalf, but also on behalf of Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whom you all know and love. Unfortunately, he could not be here today because of a death of a very close friend of his and of mine. But he wanted me to tell you that he is very much in the fight. And that he will remain in the fight until it ends successfully for you and for us all.
That fight, unfortunately, is going to have to include fighting not only the mullahs but also sometimes our own government. And we’re willing to do that until the residents of Camp Liberty — and what a terrible name for a prison — have left and until we achieve complete victory. And complete victory means not only them leaving, it means a change of regime in Tehran; it means the victory for you and for all of the Iranian people, and really for all freedom-loving people in the world.
