At an event held by the Iranian advocates, Iranian Americans for Liberty (IAL) on Saturday, Republican congressman Scott Perry criticized recent lobbying efforts of Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy (D) on behalf of the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a foreign terrorist group (FTO) in a statement that the responsibility of the senator, as well as any other person “is to your Constitution and your country and the people that have served your nation.”
“The IRGC, in the form of what we called Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFP), made in Iran, sent to Iraq [and] sent to Afghanistan to kill American service members — that's the consequence,” Perry stated.
As general brigadier within the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, Perry stated that “we shouldn't even be sitting down” with the Iranians or “proposing lifting sanctions just so they'll come to the table.”
“These are terrorists,” he declared.
The report described the Iranian leaders as “known liars,” where lying “to get what they want” is “part of their code,” Perry declared that they've so far been unfaithful.
“They don't honor any of the treaties they signed,” the official said. “Even though [the Iran nuclear deal] was not a treaty… it was an agreement — they never honored that in the first place.”
According to Perry, the necessity to demand our senators and members of the administration and representatives in order to “be for America first” is infuriating.
“Chris Murphy apparently is for the IRGC, for the Quds force, for [slain commander Qasem] Soleimani, before members of his own community that would sacrifice their lives, put on the uniform and go out [and] sacrifice for an idea — an ideal — the United States of America, the Constitution of the United States, and the freedoms we have,” the president said.
Murphy “stands with the people that kill [U.S. military personnel] unabashedly on TV,” Perry said. “How can this be?”
Perry's remarks followed Senator Murphy's ardent support for the removal of the IRGC from the State Department's FTO list.
In an exclusive statement made to Breitbart News on Thursday morning, Perry claimed that the Connecticut Democrat senator as well as “far too many other apologists for the current Iranian regime” of “playing a reckless game by appeasing terrorists,” noting that the removal of terrorist designations from IRGC “poses a real and immediate threat to Israel, the U.S., and the world.”
“It's fundamentally obscene that the Biden administration has considered removing this designation as a condition of a nuclear deal for a group whose former leader [Qasem Soleimani] is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Americans,” he declared.
In the aftermath, IAL expressed its support for Perry “calling out Sen. Murphy's anti-American statements in support of the IRGC.”
“Elected officials swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies,” stated the executive director of the group, Bryan Leib.
“The IRGC is an enemy with the blood of hundreds of Americans on their hands,” he said. “Shame on Senator Murphy for shilling for the IRGC.”
In a statement on Tuesday, Murphy stated to Iran International, “It would be tragic if we didn't get back into the [Iran] nuclear agreement.”
“I have yet to hear Republicans present a plausible alternative for how we keep the region and the world safe from nuclear weapons without this diplomatic agreement,” he added.
Iran is the world's largest state sponsor of terror around the globe, has for a long time propagated anti-American propaganda.
Then, in January of this year, footage titled “Revenge Is Definite,” warning of the assassination attempt of the former president Donald Trump as revenge for the murder Iranian General Qassim Soleimani was published on the Iran's supreme leader's official site.
On September 11, Iranian Armed Forces Spokesperson Brigadier-General Abolfazl Shekarchi stated that the United States is the Iranian nation's biggest enemy, while also insisting that his country is determined to eradicate all Jewish state.
This week, State Department spokesperson Ned Price stated that in the context of revising the 2015 nuclear agreement, the U.S. is awaiting a “constructive response” from Iran “that leaves behind issues that are extraneous” -perhaps a reference to Iran's request that the IRGC be removed from a U.S. terrorism list.
According to an ex- State Department official, President Joe Biden's decision to reopen the Iran nuclear agreement gives Iran an access point to $90 billion worth of foreign currency reserves as well as sanctions relief for some of the world's most infamous terrorists.
Alongside being given millions of dollars in cash, the deal could be used to fuel the purpose of terror and aggression. It also won't hinder Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
On March 1, Russia's ambassador for talks with Iran admitted that Tehran “got much more than it could expect” in the most recent version of the nuclear agreement.
Last month, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) expressed her interest in the immediate conclusion of the Iran Deal, which she claimed would keep a lid on the possibility of a Middle East conflict.
