Thank you very much.  Before me is the largest gathering of Iranians in the world who woke up this morning breathing free, speaking free, worshiping free, and living free. It is my honor to be with you.

It is my pleasure to serve as master of ceremonies to introduce to you people from around the globe who share this struggle shoulder to shoulder with Iranian people in their desperate moment fighting for freedom. But we must all be mindful that while this is the largest gathering of free Iranians in the world today, tomorrow morning that responsibility rests on a brave few in Tirana Albania. To those who survived Ashraf, flow-through Camp Liberty. You are now the point of the spear in Albania.  Our hopes, our prayers rest with you to destroy the mullahs and create a free Iran. My friends in Iran the name Rajavi is synonymous with freedom and a hope for a better future in America is synonymous with the fight against terrorism and for freedom is the name Giuliani it is my pleasure to bring you the former mayor of the great city of New York Rudy Giuliani.

Senator Robert Torricelli served as the United States senator from New Jersey from 1997 to 2003 and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Jersey's 9th district from 1983 to 1997. From 1999 to 2000, he served as the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
