“During Saddam’s ruling, the group was mercenary of Baathists and worked against the Iraqis; however, after the fall of Saddam, the government is expected to restrict them but Americans support the group for its hostility towards Iran.”
In an interview with Fars News correspondent on the issue of expelling the MEK from Iraq, Javad Taleb, the media advisor of former Iraqi Premiere Ibrahim Jafari, said: “The decision to expel the group was made when the Iraqi parliament was established, but the U.S. didn’t accept it so as to use the group against Iran.” Calling MEK’s presence in Iraq against the Iraqi constitution, he added: “Sometime ago, Parliament asked for the expulsion of terrorist MEK, which is not new but an emphasis on earlier Iraqi government’s requests.” Taleb said the expulsion of the group is up to Americans’ decision. “We should see if the U.S. considers them leverage against Iran or they are burned cards.” “During Saddam’s ruling, the group was mercenary of Baathists and worked against the Iraqis; however, after the fall of Saddam, the government is expected to restrict them but Americans support the group for its hostility towards Iran.” “Americans, who have sided with remnants of Baath, are the real supporters of terrorist MEK. The group is possibly serving them, particularly for making explosives; the reason for this is the immunity they get through Americans,” Taleb added. Referring to UK’s act of removing MEK from terror list, he said: “This is only a political issue.” Taleb said the assassination of Iranian figures and the crimes committed by the MEK (against Iranians and Iraqis) shows the group is terrorist.
