Subsequent to the US invasion, the people of Iraq realized soon that the real and long term threat is from the eastern borders, the Iranian regime that claims to be guardian of Shiites. They found that the Iran's rulers want to dominate this part of the world and have turned Iraq into a hunting ground and the frontline of their war with the International Community.
On the other hand, the people of Iraq found that PMOI is a firm obstacle against the Iranian regime and a real support for themselves against the Iranian regime's brutal invasion and unbridled terrorism within the last two decades; in a matter of fact, a strategic ally in achieving security, peace and democracy in Iraq. Due to the action of Iran's rulers against the interests of the Iraqi people, and the situation this regime has created in their country, the attitude of independent Iraqi individuals and political forces toward the PMOI has turned to be a very clear criterion. Therefore, they comprehended that the only solution and outlook in Iraq and particularly in the southern provinces passes through eviction of the Iranian regime from their country. In order to achieve that purpose, they must bond stronger ties with PMOI. Therefore, in every event, the Iraqi people took their way ahead Ashraf to express their sympathy. Through these years, dozens of declarations and congressional meetings were also held in Ashraf sponsored by the Iraqi personalities.
