The European Union's incoming foreign affairs chief must persuade the bloc to cast aside Europe's failed policy of appeasement of Iran's religious dictatorship and support the Iranian people in their quest to oust their tyrannical rulers, former European lawmaker Struan Stevenson writes in the United Press International.

The Middle East is a region of constant turmoil due to the malign meddling of the extremist theocracy ruling Iran. Through such terrorism, Tehran attempts to mask its domestic turmoil, a fire simmering beneath the ashes threatening the very foundation of the mullahs’ rule.
Despite it's warmongering and support for terrorism that overwhelms many governments, the most formidable foe Tehran faces is the principal democratic opposition movement Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK). Many groups have come and gone in the past 40 years while the MEK has paid the demanding price of the struggle, standing firm on its principles while suffering over 100,000 supporters being sent to the gallows.
