Apology Letter Sent By Americans To Iranian Nation For Trump’s Aggression

PRESS TV.COM         Sun., Jan. 26, 2020

An American peace advocacy group has collected more than 10,000 signatures for an open letter apologizing to the Iranian nation for the US aggression, particularly President Donald Trump’s “reckless” decision to order the assassination of senior Iranian commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.

“As Americans committed to peace and the safety of all people, we, the undersigned, apologize for the actions of our reckless, hate-filled president,” the letter by CODEPINK reads. The activists further to “do everything we can to stop Trump’s aggression, remove the crippling sanctions you are suffering under, and resume a process of diplomacy with your country.”

“The American people do not want a war with Iran. We want to live in peace and harmony. Please accept our hand in friendship. May the peacemakers prevail over those who sow hatred and discord.”

The peace advocacy group is sending the letter, both in English and Farsi, and a video version to the Iranian press.

The Farsi version of the apology letter has been read out by Jewish American graduate student Lindsay Saligman, who traveled to Iran in March 2019. She has since worked to promote greater understandings between Iranians and Americans.

On Saturday, a coalition of anti-war activists organized protest rallies across the US and the world to slam the Trump administration for “a dangerous escalation of the conflict.”

In a tweet about the demonstrations, CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin warned that war was still a very real possibility. “Think we avoided war with Iran a few weeks ago?” said Benjamin. “Think again. We are still on the brink.”

“The rallies, apology letter, congressional bills, city council resolutions–these are all ways that we, as Americans, are trying to stop Trump from taking us into a war with Iran,” said CODEPINK activist Ariel Gold, who visited Iran on a peace delegation in October.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
