IRAN PROTEST: ‘TRUMP IS RIGHT’ EUROPE SAVAGED FOR SOFT TOUCH ON IRAN AFTER ‘YEAR OF SHAME’
EUROPE MUST END ITS ‘SOFT TOUCH’ APPROACH ON TEHRAN AND FOLLOW DONALD TRUMP’S HARDLINE STANCE ON IRAN, ACCORDING TO DEMONSTRATORS WHO FLOODED THE STREETS OF PARIS IN A DRAMATIC PROTEST.

Thousands of Iranians rallied and marched in Paris yesterday to mark the 40th anniversary of the Iran uprising which toppled the country’s monarchy. The powerful march swept through the streets of Paris, with the rhythms of the drums echoing as demonstrators chanted powerful slogans against the Iran regime. Protesters called on the global community to act now and end atrocities in Tehran – but it was Europe which was most heavily condemned as the demonstrators stood behind US President Donald Trump for his tough stance on the regime.
One speaker at the rally, former French Senator Jean-Pierre Michel, said in an interview: “I’m not a fanatic of Mr Trump but I think the United States is right about Iran.”
In a scathing attack, he also chastised Europe’s leaders for what he views as their softer approach to Tehran.
He added: “I want to call upon our governments, European governments, Jean-Yves Le Drian and Federica Mogherini, do not fear the Iranian Resistance.
“Open your eyes and ears. Retake the dignity that the status of Europe brings upon you, take back the dignity of the Europeans. Support the Iranian Resistance.”
Iran protest: Demonstration in Paris over Iran regime
Dr Alejo Vidal-Quadras, a former Spanish Member of the European Parliament, said: “I call on the EU to take a hard line with this theocratic and terrorist regime which has no future.
“The EU must stop its appeasement policies and support the Iranian opposition instead of the mullahs.
“Appeasement only encourages the mullahs to commit more crimes in Iran and more terrorism in Europe.
“The EU has to put the entire Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on its terrorism blacklist.”
