PETITION:

No Deals with the Iranian mullahs!

By the end of this year, Austria 's biggest state-controlled oil company, OMV AG, plans to enter into a 22 Billion Euro Agreement with Iran . This agreement will irrevocably turn Austria and Europe into strategic partners and accomplices of the Iranian political regime; a regime that supports international terrorism and violently represses its own population: The Iranian determination to develop nuclear weapons which could directly affect Europe ’s security, is posing the greatest threat to world peace. The systematic persecution of Kurds, religious minorities such as the Bahai, and the executions of homosexuals as well as the ongoing repression of women who don’t submit to the Islamic moral code, are essential elements of this regime, as are the continuous threats of annihilation towards Israel and the renouncement of the Shoah.

We therefore call – particularly upon the Austrian government – for ceasing "critical negotiations" with the mullahs and demand instead to take the following measures:

*                         Immediate discontinuation of the negotiations between the OMV and the Iranian mullahs on the basis of unilateral sanctions

*                         Cessation of any credit support provided by the Austrian Control Bank for transactions with Iran

*                         Imposition of effective and comprehensive UN and EU sanctions in order to isolate the Iranian regime politically and economically

*                         Support of those Iranian opposition groups which continue to fight for a secular, liberal and democratic Iran and provide for a genuine alternative to the current regime
