PARIS, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- French senators representing several political parties united today in support Iranian dissidents and in opposition to Iran's meddling in regional crises, notably Syria and Iraq.
After a meeting that featured the head of the Iranian Resistance, the senators called on the French government to adopt an "effective and serious policy" regarding Iran and to act to protect members of the Iranian opposition at Camp Liberty in Iraq from more massacres such as those that killed scores and wounded hundreds over the past two-plus years.
The senators also called for an "independent, comprehensive and transparent probe by international experts" into the September 1 raid on the Iranian refugees in Camp Ashraf at the upcoming conference of the Human Rights Council in March.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), told the meeting that the mullahs' regime's extensive interference in Syria is the principal problem of that country. "Evicting the Iranian regime from Syria is the only solution for ending the rule of the murderous tyranny in that country," she stated.
Mrs. Rajavi also discussed implementation of the interim nuclear agreement between the P5+1 and the Iranian regime, asserting that the indecisive approach by the U.S. and the West led the mullahs, "pressured by popular discontent and internal crises," to retreat one step. She said that the nuclear program would have been dismantled by now if the West had been more decisive. "Western governments must compel the mullahs to shut down their nuclear sites completely and comply with the Security Council resolutions," she added.
She pointed to the repeated disclosures and warnings by the Resistance about "the threat of the mullahs' regime" to the region through it spreading of fundamentalism. "Regrettably, with their erroneous policies, Western governments ignored those warnings," she said.
The French senators endorsed her call for the French government to take the case of the Iranian dissidents in Iraq to the UN Security Council to ensure the protection of the residents of Liberty, members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) until their transfer out of Iraq, and to use its influence to secure the release of the seven Ashraf hostages who are being detained by the Iraqi government, to arrange the immediate transfer of asylum-seekers in Camp Liberty to third countries, and to assure their security until that time.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
