United States Congress

Iran Deal: Washington Mission Update

On September 15-17 Rev. Majed El Shafie led a One Free World International delegation to Washington, D.C. to draw attention to the systemic human rights abuses in Iran and to oppose the bad P5+1 Iranian Nuclear Deal. Sept 16th Testimony of Rev. El Shafie at The National Press Club in Washington, DC (2)Rev. El Shafie released a report titled: The Iranian Nuclear Agreement: A Tragic Mistake that Must Be Avoided, which details the Deal's failings, documents Iranian human rights violations, and focusses on the need to maintain international pressure on the regime to reform.

The delegation met with Members of Congress and their offices, attended the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa's hearing on the Major Beneficiaries of the Iran Deal: IRGC and Hezbollah, and held a press conference at the National Press Club. OFWI believes the U.S. government has made a grave mistake in moving forward with the implementation of this bad deal and will fight to maintain international pressure on the Iranian regime to end the persecution and respect human rights.

Upcoming Action

OFWI will continue to fight for what is right. Western nations must remain vigilant in monitoring the regimes actions in light of the sanctions relief Iran is about to receive.

Collaboration with One Free World International partners continues to assess the best tools and strategy for increased awareness of the Iranian human rights abuses and the most effective way to apply pressure on Iran to free its people.

On October 18 OFWI will host a conference "The American - Iranian Nuclear Deal" from 10:30-12:30 in Toronto, Canada at Catch The Fire Church, 272 Attwell Drive.

OFWI will bring Israeli and Jewish leaders as well as former Iranian prisoners and leaders from the Iranian community and minority communities who have suffered torture and persecution at the hands of the Iranian regime, to stand in solidarity to condemn this nuclear deal.

Help us stop the bad Iranian Nuclear Deal


Say no to the flawed Iranian Nuclear Deal Dear One Free World International Supporters,

We need your help.

In the coming days I will be leading a One Free World International delegation to Washington, D.C. to press the U.S. Congress to use all means available to stop this Iranian nuclear deal.

This deal leaves the Iranian people to languish under the theocratic regime and emboldens support for terrorist activity in the region. President Obama continues to push for the deal's adoption and only the U.S. Congress has the power to stop it. I am writing to ask for your support to help cover the costs of the delegation, estimated to be between US$20,000-$25,000, to travel to D.C. and make this urgent appeal.

This nuclear deal makes no mention of human rights, provides zero incentives for the Iranian regime change, and provides $150 billion in sanctions relief that will fund the regime's activity and its terrorist network around the world.

Our delegation will be a voice for the voiceless and include leaders from minority communities, including former prisoners who have suffered torture and persecution at the hands of the theocratic Iranian regime. This important trip will speak up for those who are denied their human rights:

  • Bahá’í’s who are not recognized and cannot legally attend school without denying their faith.
  • Converts to Christianity who are jailed, tortured, and executed.
  • Jews who are imprisoned and accused of spying for Israel.
  • Men and women who are stoned to death in public if they are found guilty of homosexual activity or adultery.
  • Young men and women who attempt to demonstrate in the streets on behalf of democracy are arrested and imprisoned, briefly or indefinitely, or simply shot in the street, leaving the Green Revolution of 2009 a footnote in history.

In the days ahead I will have more to share about this important effort as we bring the voices of the voiceless to the halls of power in Washington, D.C. Please continue to pray that the U.S. Congress will oppose this deal and show the world the United States still stands for basic, universal values that are worth fighting for.

Please donate what you can today.

Sincerely, Rev. Majed El Shafie Founder and President, One Free World International
