Mano Bakh is part of Concerned American Citizens. On November 15, 2010, the Press-Enterprise published a portrait of Bakh noting that he was forced to flee Iran shortly after that country’s 1979 revolution. Bakh asserts he was subject to human rights abuses prior to his flight. According to the article’s author, Bakh believes “an expansionist Islamic ideology supports terrorism and seeks to repress liberty through religious-based Shariah law.”
