Jewish and Iranian demonstrators gathered in front of the European Parliament in Brussels on Monday at a protest rally organised by the Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO). The protest was scheduled to coincide with a meeting of the European Parliament where representatives were set to discuss EU-Iranian relations. The protest organisers called for economic and political sanctions toward Iran. Created 40 years ago, the MKO subscribes to Islamic and Marxist doctrines. It supported Iran’s Islamic revolution, but in June 1981 it staged an unsuccessful uprising with a number of attacks against the regime leadership. The organisation was also behind the assassination of the Iranian president and prime minister in 1981, as well as attacks on 13 Iranian embassies in 1992. During the Iraq–Iran war in the 1980s, former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein granted the MKO refuge, allowing them to fight the Iranian forces from Iraq. The MKO was designated a terrorist organisation by the European Union in May 2002. Amin Alisefat, 23, from London left Iran last year. He says: “As a Mujahideen, I would work with pro-Israel organisations to tackle Iran’s fundamentalist regime. Europe has to realise that Iran will not only use its nukes on Israel, but on any European country.” The Israeli embassy in Brussels refused to comment on these pro-Israeli statements. Nathan Bouscher, a representative of the Dutch Centre for Information and Documentation on Israel (CIDI), came to the rally to show the centre’s support for the non-violent Iranian resistance movement and to call for regime change in Iran in the name of Holland’s Jewish community. Bouscher admitted he was concerned about participating in a rally organised by such a controversial organisation. He added however that for the Dutch pro-Israel lobby group the message was in this case more important than the representative of the message. "We understand the ambiguity of us rallying with the MKO, but we are not allies and we only take on the opportunity of this demonstration to stress our concern on the threat that Iran poses.” According to Bouscher, no other Jewish organisation joined Monday’s rally. "We don’t share the MKO’s Socialist and religious agenda, but we are here to talk about civil rights, gay rights and women rights. “The bottom line is that Iran was in the centre of attention, and it is very important for Israel to emphasise the threat it poses," Bouscher added.
