ICYMI: On 37th Anniversary of U.S. Embassy Takeover, Iran Hostage Survivor Barry Rosen Warns That Regime Has Not Changed

New UANI Resources Released on Americans Currently Being Held Hostage in Iran and the Regime's Entrenched Anti-Americanism 

New York, NY - On the 37th anniversary of the U.S. embassy takeover in Tehran, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) Advisory Board Member and Iran Hostage Crisis survivor Barry Rosen, in a TIME magazine op-ed, observed that "Nearly 40 years after I was imprisoned and tortured, nothing has changed."

As it does annually, the Iranian regime commemorated this anniversary by holding anti-American rallies in which the American flag was burned and demonstrators chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel". 
Connecting the Iranian regime's anti-American extremism and activities to next week's U.S. presidential election, Rosen said, "It is imperative that the Presidential candidates and our policymakers in Congress understand that the Iranian regime that held my colleagues and me hostage has not reformed its ways." He added, "my fellow survivors and I are dismayed to see the same actions being taken against fellow Americans in Iran today. There have been a number of dual nationals held on unsubstantiated charges--just like I was--sentenced to years in Iranian prisons without recourse."
A new UANI resource, "Iran's American Hostages," profiles the five American citizens and residents who are currently being unjustly held in Iran. Rosen concludes his op-ed with a sobering assessment of the regime. "The next President must ... be prepared to take a hard line against Khamenei and his regime as they push the envelope... The fanciful notion that the nuclear deal would bring about better relations between our two countries has been dispelled; a new administration will have the chance to cast a spotlight on Iran for the bad global actor it is."
