                             July 26, 2018

Mr. McClintock (for himself, Mr. Gosar, and Mr. Poe of Texas) submitted 
   the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on 
                            Foreign Affairs



Condemning Iranian state-sponsored terrorism and expressing support for 
the Iranian people's desire for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear 
                           republic of Iran.

Whereas, on July 2, 2018, the Belgium Federal Prosecutor's Office announced the 
        foiling of a terrorist plot against the ``Free Iran 2018 - the 
        Alternative'' gathering held on June 30, 2018, in support of the Iranian 
        people's quest for freedom;
Whereas the Free Iran gathering had commenced to show support for the Iranian 
        opposition leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi's 10-point plan for future Iran, 
        that calls for universal right to vote, free elections, and advocates 
        gender, religious and ethnic equality, and adheres to a market economy;
Whereas the plan calls for establishment of a republic in Iran based on 
        separation of religion and state and envisions a non-nuclear Iran;
Whereas the plan commits to the abolition of Sharia Law, practiced by the 
        Iranian regime, and a foreign policy based on peaceful coexistence and 
        international and regional peace and cooperation, as well as respect for 
        the United Nations Charter;
Whereas senior governmental, military, and public security officials in Iran 
        have for decades ordered or committed egregious human rights violations 
        and acts of terror;
Whereas a senior Iranian diplomat based in the Iranian embassy in Vienna, 
        Austria, was also arrested in connection with the planned terror plot 
        while in Germany;
Whereas the Iranian diplomat has been charged in Belgium in connection with the 
        terrorist plot and in Germany with ``activity as a foreign agent and 
        conspiracy to commit murder'';
Whereas a senior Department of State official said on July 10, 2018, that ``Iran 
        uses embassies as cover to plot terrorist attacks.'', and that ``The 
        most recent example is the plot that the Belgians foiled, and we had an 
        Iranian diplomat out of the Austrian embassy as part of the plot to bomb 
        a meeting of Iranian opposition leaders in Paris.'';
Whereas the Department of State official has urged ``all nations to be vigilant 
        about Iran using embassies as diplomatic cover to plot terrorist 
Whereas Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed concern about Iran's use of its 
        embassies to plan terrorist activities in Europe, including the ``plot 
        to bomb an Iranian opposition group rally in France on June 30, 2018'';
Whereas several prominent former United States Government officials, three 
        retired United States generals, congressional staff, and thousands of 
        United States citizens participated at this gathering; and
Whereas a large bipartisan group of Members of Congress supported H.R. 4744, and 
        have expressed support for ``efforts made by the people of Iran to 
        promote the establishment of basic freedoms that build the foundation 
        for the emergence of a freely elected, open, non-corrupt and democratic 
        political system'': Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) condemns past and present Iranian state-sponsored 
        terrorist attacks against United States citizens, United States 
        officials, and Iranian dissidents;
            (2) condemns the Iranian regime's terror plot against 
        United States citizens and other participants of the ``Free 
        Iran 2018 - the Alternative'' gathering in Paris;
            (3) calls on relevant United States Government agencies to 
        work with European allies to identify and bring to justice the 
        Iranian officials behind this plot;
            (4) stands with the people of Iran who are engaged in 
        continuing, legitimate, and peaceful protests against an 
        oppressive, corrupt regime; and
            (5) recognizes the rights of the Iranian people and their 
        struggle to establish a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear 
        republic of Iran.
